Bismarck and His Boots.
Before Otto Bismarck had reached his
seventeenth year he was at the university.
He wanted to go to Heidelberg ;
but his mother preferred Gottingen.
She was afraid that the art of imbibing
enormous tankards of beer?an art so
assiduously cultivated in the former
town that it may almost be said to form
part of the curriculum?would become a
habit with her son. " A beer-vat cannot
I scale a mountain, and you have one before
you, on the top of which is Fame,"
said she. Otto conformed to the wishes
of his mother, and to Gottingen he w^at.
He was by no means a strait-laced young
man ; he joined in every amu^ment of
' student life, and dressed like them,
adopted their tone and manners. He
was foremost in freak* of all kinds, but
displayed that .str^g and determination
for whioi he afterward became
so famous. Having bee? invited to a
ball, at wiiich the prettiest girls in the
town -"ere to be present, our young student
orders a new pair of varnished
boots for the occasion. As the eventful
^nrr /Ivnw nnoy Qn/1 Knnfo TVCXVGk Ttrtf
sent home, he grew somewhat uneasy,
the more as his friends kept repeating to
him: "You'll not have your boots;
the shoemaker disappoints every one."
"I'll have them in spite of that," replied
the future chancellor. The day
before the entertainment Bismarck entered
the shop." " And my boots ?" asks
he. "I am very sorry, sir," is the reply
; " but I have so many orders on
hand for to-morrow's ball?"Ah, is
that it ?" cries the furious youngster;
and, banging the door behind him, he
leaves the house. A quarter of an hour
afterward he comes back, accompanied
by two of those enormous dogs which the
Ge*nan students are in the habit of feeding
at the expense of their association.
"You see these do_gs ?" This to Crispin.
"Yes." "Well, I swear that they'll
tear you to pieces if you.do not send my
boots by to-morr' # afternoon, five
o'clock." With this he went out again.

stillness is broken by the barking of the
dogs, and the voice of their master singing
out: Your life is in danger ! Remember

day the boots were sent home in time.?

Horrible Affair at a Reformatory.
An English paper says: We are informed
that the most horrible discoveries
I have been made in the Reformatory for
l Native Boys, which is situated on a hill
j about nine miles from Kingston in the
I Island of Jamaica. Some time ago,
under the governorship of Sir William
Grey, a clergyman was appointed superintendent
of the reformatory, with a
salary of ?400 a year, beside a house
and other perquisites. But these appear
not to have been sufficient for the reverened
gentleman, who applied the food
allotted for the four hundred poor boyB
I under his charge to fattening pigs for the
I market. Meanwhile the little wretches
| were starved and growing desperate?
j they actually fought with the pigs for
: the food thrown to them. The miserable
creatures were neglected in every possible
way. A nasty insect, oalled a tick,
well known to every traveler in the
tropics, burrowed into their feet, and, as
the doctor had to look after his private
patients, the wounds, which if examined
iu time would have been trifling, became
ko serious that amputation of toes or
feet were necessary in no less than eighty
cases. Starved and neglected, the lads
became unruly. The offenders were
then shackled together in pairs and consigned
to the cells, where some were
forgotten for three days and left without
food or drink. All this at last came to
light by mere accident. The boys were
entrusted with knives to cut down some
guinea grass outside, iu charge of ?ne
warder only; they naturally used their
liberty to satisfy the cravings of hunger
by plundering the neighboring gardens.
The owners did not dare to iuterfere,
but reported the matter to the governor.

A Western Steamboat Calamity.
The steamer Lotus, with a cargo of
1,671 bales of cotton and 525 sacks of
cotton seed, from Red River for New
Orleans, having reached a point opposite
Waterloo, was discovered, by the
engineer, to be on fire in the gangway,
at the aft end of the boilers. An alarm
was immediately given to the pilot, who
headed the boat to shore ; but, so rapid
was the progress of the flames, that the
lower deck was enveloped, the steampipe
burst, and the boat becoming unmanageable
swung around in the middle

were forced to jump into the river to
escape burning. The stage-planks and
jackstaff were thrown overboard, and
were the means of saving many lives,
The steamboat Willie was fortunately
within sight coming up the river. A
whistle, aB a signal for help, was blown
by the Lotus, which was promptly responded
to. Had it not been for this
circumstance the clerk thinks few persons
would have been saved. The weather
was extremely oold. and the Willie
preserved the lives of many who, having
escaped being burned, were in imminent
danger of being frozen or drowned. The
cook was burned to death while holding
to the stern of the boat. Peter Seagreen,
a deck hand, was also burned to death,
and Henry Seper, the chambermaid,
; and eight roustabouts were drowned.
; There were fifteen passengers, not one
| of whom was lost, though Mrs. Massey,
i of New Orleans, while escaping through
; a window over the wheel, was badly out
j and bruised. The books; papers, money
| and United States mail were all destroyed,
also the entire baggage and
clothing of passengers and crew. Capt.
Daniels was severely scorched, ag were
most of the saved. The clerk, Mr.

Incidents of tils March ncross the Continent
Fighting with Cannibals*?A Monster
Canoe?A Temple of Ivorr.
Henry M. Stanley continues his !
graphic story of African exploration in a j
letter to the New York Herald. We
give the most interesting incidents : On j
January 4, 1877, we came to the first of ^
what proved a series of cataracts, or, to
use a more correct term, falls, below
the confluence of the Lum ami, and the (
Lualaba, or the Lowa, as the river was
now called. Our troubles began now in
earnest. We were hunted like game. J
Night and day every nerve was strained ,
to defend ourselves. Four times on ,
January 4 we broke through the lineB
of canoes brought out against us. and
finally we were halted by the Baswa
Falls. The savages seemed to think
that we had no resource left but to surrender
and be eaten at their leisure.
Again and again were we compelled to
repulse the furious charges that they
made to drive us over the falls. The
people of the Falls Islands also came up
to assist the cannibals of Mwana Ntaba.
We were at bay, and became desperate;
Return we could not, as we could not
pull against stream and fight. We pulled
ashore first on tho right bank, then
across river to the left, and made a camp
in the woods, drawing our canoes and
boat up after us. After constructing a
fence of brush around on the forest side
the best sharpshooters were placed in
position for defence. After a short time
the natives retired and left us to rest, j
For the ensuing twenty-four days we j
had fearful work, constructing camps by :
night along the line marked out during |
the day, cutting roads from above to below
each fall, dragging our heavy canoes j
during the day, while the most active of j,
the young men?the boat's crew?repulsed
the savages and foraged for food. ,
On January 27 we had passed in this
desperate way forty-two geographical %
miles, by six falls, and to effect it had j ?
dragged our canoes a distance of thirteen j
miles by land and by roads which we had | 8
| cut through the forest. Our provisions j ?
i in the meantime we had to procure as :

the last fall, we halted two days for rest, !,
which we all very much needed, in the J
passage of these falls we lo?* five men 1,
only. . !
After passi*g this furies of falls we :
entered upon diffe^nt scenes. The : P
I river was graduuP/ widening from the ! Y
I usual 1,500 to 2,000 yards breadth to j J?
j two and th?re miles. It then began to j *
receive grander affluents, and soon as- ! d
I surocd a lacustrine breadth ftom four to j P
j ten miles. Island also were so numer- i
j ous that once a day were we able to ob- j r
| tain a glimpse of the opposite bank. We ' a
j had reached the great basin lying be- ; ?
tween the maritime and lake regions, i "
The first day we entered this region we | B
were attacked three times by three sepa- F
rate tribes ; the second day we main- 13
tained a running fight almost the entire j a
day, wlrich culminated in a grand naval ?
I fight at the confluence of the Aruwimi? 1
; the Welle (?)?with the Lualaba. As 0
we crossed over from the current of 8
the Lualaba to that of the Aruwimi, and F
had taken a glance at the breadfh of the ^
| magnificent affluent, we were quite taken ?
j aback at the grand preparations for our ?
i reception. Fifty-four canoes rushing j ?
j down on us with such fury that I saw I ! J:
must act at once if I wished to save the j
expedition. Four of our canoes, in a J 0
i desperate fright, became panic stricken 1 8
! and began to pull fast down stream, but j 0
hey were soon brought back. J
j We dropped our stone anchors, form- ?
i ed a close line and calmly waited events. c
i Down the natives came, fast and furious
| but in magnificient style. Everything
i about them was superb. Their canoes
; were enormous things, one especially, a
j monster, eighty paddlers. forty on a
I side, with paddles eight feet long, spearI
pointed, and really pointed with iron
j blades for close quarters, I presume,
i The top of each paddle shaft was adorn!
ed with ivory balls. The chiefs pranced
j up and down a plankiug that ran from
I stem to stern. On a platform near the bow !
! were ten choice young fellows swaying !
j their long spears ready. At the stern ,
of this great war canoe stood eight I
steersmen, guiding her toward us. j J
i There were about twenty?three-fourths j
: nftfcie such air -.-fine looking, but nonejj
rough guess there must have been from ;:
fifteen hundred to two thousaud f^va- : 1
j ges within these fifty-four canoes.
I cannot think that these belonged to 8
I one power. I imagine that it was a pre- j
j concerted arrangement with neighborI
ing tribes, got up especially for our en- ^
I tertainment. We had no time even to
! breathe a short prayer or to think of in- 1
dulging in a sentimental farewell to the 1
| murderous cannibalistic world in which j
we found ourselves. The enemy, in ;
I nnnfi^onimnf vif?fnrv WftR Oil US. and !
|.?UW????-v j,
j the big monster as it shot past us
I launched a spear?the first. We waited
no longer; they came to fight. The
| cruel faces, the loudly triumphant drums,
the deafening horns, the launched spears,
swaying bodies, all proved it; and every
gun in our little fleet angrily gave response
to our foes. We were in a second
almost surrounded, and clouds of
spears hurtled and hissed for a short
time?say, ten minutes. They then
gave way, and we lifted our anchors and
charged them, following them with fatal
result. We were carried, away with our
feelings. We followed them to the
shore, chased them on land into their
villages, ten or twelve of them, and, after
securing some of the abundance of food I
we found there, I sounded the recall. j
To the victors belong the spoil?at
i least so thought my people?and the
i amount of ivory they discovered lying I
useless about astonished me. There j
| was an ivoiy " temple," a structure of I
j solid tusks surrounding an idol; ivory j
j logs, which, by the murks of hatchets j
j visible on them, they must have used to
i chop wood upon ; ivory war horns, some
j of them tlxree feet long ; ivory mallets,
! ivory wedges to split wood, ivory pestles
! to grind their cassava, and before the
| chief's house was a veranda, or burzah, I
j the posts of which were long tusks of j
! ivory. There were 133 pieces of ivory, i
| which, according to rough calculation, j
i would realize, or ought to realize, about j
I $10,030. These, I told the men, they i
i must consider as their prize money. In !
j this light we only lost one man. i
Eloping With tm Indian.
! We take the following from a Hamiltou !
j (Ontario) paper: Some days ago we i
i published a report of an elopement from t
I a farm house near Stratford, the parties
. beiug a daughter of the proprietor and a f
: hired man who belongs to one of the ' f
i Indian tribes living ou reserves between j
j Caledonia and Brantford. The Indian j
i is said to be a fine, handsome, strapping j,
[ fellow. We are informed that the j
! couple made their way to the house of ;
: the Indian's mother, Jiaving been mar- . *
i ried in due form in a i'rotestant iiipisco- j ?
| pal church somewhere on the Reserve. ]
There they were found by the angry |
I father and brother of the girl, and the ;
1 Indian, being arrested, was taken to and i
I locked up in Caledonia. While in limbo j
j the young husband mourned for his !
! absent wife, and pledged himself, in the |
j hearing of his auditors, to die, if neces-!
; sary, in her defence. But the relatives j
of the girl, fiuding they oould not sep
arate the pair, consented to the Indian's
release, and the whole party went in for j
! a general jovial celebration on the |
; evening of the day upon which the j
! young couple were thus reunited. The I
j young wife belongs to a very respectable j
and wealthy family, named Murray, who i
! reside in the county of Perth. They are 1
; members of the Roman Catholic Church. [
| The Indian, whose name has escaped j
i our memory, is a Protestant, and is i
; above the average of his tribe in intelli- i

A Black Hills "Opium House."
TheDeadwood "opiumhouse," writes
a correspondent, is owned and conducted
by two venerable appearing pagans, who
assume a dignity and importance of mien
indicative of no little self-esteem?an
audacity of nature often remarked, too,
in tliose engaged in the retail liquor
business. Such characters do not seem
to be sensible of their dreadful destiny.
" The opium house " is a frame structure
it the lower end of Main street, in the
Chinese quarters. Flanking it for a
3quare or more above aud below, the
general aspect is decidedly Oriental,
ilso plutonic. Heathen wash houses,
:-ea stores and medicine and doctor shops,
with their cabalistic signs and burning
colored tapers?charms against the intrusion
of Asiatic hobgoblins?are jumjled
together promiscuously. The in!ected
atmosphere is perfectly stifling,
ind warns the visitor of his approach
some time before he reaches his destina;ion?the
predominating stench of opilm
smoke commingling with that insufferable
musk smell which everywhere
sharacterizes the presence of Mongolitns.
Entering the front and receiving
oom, I was agreeably surprised to find
jverything scrupulously clean, and the
sharacter and arrangements of the
luique aud curious furniture and pictures,
such as could not fail to captivate
he pagan eye. Every appearance and
levice seemed to invite to ease and
epose. An air of orderly abandon
jervaded the place, under the influence
>f which one almost became oblivious to
he repulsive details which combine to

zed barbarianism.
We were at once approached by a
leanly-clad Asiatic?his sandals new
nd glossy, encasing stockings of spotess
white, and the balance of his loose.'
otton attire just as cle^y?who introiuced
himself by ask^g. "Mellcau man
;o up stairs ? smoke ?" We noQled
assent, ar<* followed him up the
larrow stairway to an aisle, on either
ide of wtlCh "was a row of opium-smoking
tallft the entrances to which were
;rucained with grotesquely-figured cloth
f Chinese manufacture. In each of
bese cellB there is a small table, with
iixuriously-cushioned stools. They are
f capacity sufficient to accommodate
alf a dozen when sitting close together,
8 opium-smokers do when smoking in
arties. My guide ordered two pipes,
be charge for each of which was "four
ittee." I have often paid half a dollar
or admission to entertainment which
id not prove so profitable, though my
ipe was unused. Having received his
ollar the barbarian left us to soon
eturn with two cards, each containing
bout a small teaspoonful of an opium
lixture of the consistency of common
ar. It is said this compound is not
lade anywhere outside of China. It is
>ut up for market in that country in
oxes containing a little over half a pint,
nd they are retailed in San Francisco at
ight dollars each, and at twelve dollars
a Deadwood. The mixture is of a
ombustible character, consuming away
lowly and steadily when ignited. A
liece of rounded and nicely polished
lardwood, upon which to fry the narotic,
is furnished, with a piece of wire
n recnlate the consumption as to quan
ity and time, by adding to or taking
rom the burning mass, and also to feed
he pipe. An old smoker will consume
ne card in half an hour, and I was !
saured there were many in Deadwood, j
f both sexes, who often spent an entire >
light in the opium-house, using from j
tve dollars to seven dollars' worth of j
tpium in an all-night sitting. I had i
>ccular proof that some of the leading |
msiness men of the city had fallen vie- I
ims to the fatal allurement.
The income of the proprietors must
>e enormous. Had we called an hour
ater we would have failed to have got
eats without waiting, as the tables are
isually all occupi?d from nine o'clock
it night until well on toward daylight.

Seth W. Fowle & Sons :
Gentlemen?Two years ago I began lo take
the Peruvian Syrup. I was in a languid, halfalive
state, through incipient dyspepsia and defective
circulation of the blood. Three bottles
of the Peruvian Syrup changed this to glowing,
bounding health. I have a line appetite, sleep
soundly, and can walk five miles easily, without
resting, or busy myself out of doors all day
long without fatigue.
A lady cousin, who resides with me, took the
Syrup during lier recovery from a serious illness
of some weeks. She has been an invalid
for years. Five bottles of the Syrup have so
built up her system that she now eats quite
iieartily, sleeps* well, anil can walk three miles
(in fine weather) without fatigue. I consider
the medicine so invalnablo to persons of sedentary
pursuits, or to those who 'suffer from
languor or low spirits, that I relate this personal
experience of its effects to you, leaving
you to make what use you please of mv letter.

Hostetter's stomach Bitters defy competition,
Of the host of rival Ionics that have cropped
up during its long career, not one has gained
and retained such a large share of public favor,
though many have enjoyed an ephemeral popularity.
The reason is this, that whereas many
of tiose medicines were advertised to perform
cures of the most startling nature, they have,
when tested, almost invariably turned out to
be of little or no value, while the great invigorant,
whose reputation they were intended to
rival, has never disappointed those who have
placed their confidence in it. It has vindicated
m the amplest manner i s claims to be considered
a positive specific remedy for liver complaint,
dyspepsia, malarious fevers, debility,
constipation, and numerous other maladies
arising from general weakness and disorders of
the stomach, liver and bowels.
