He waa not what you would rail an Intellectual ixMiiK ninn, and on thinking it over afterward I renieniler that be bad a narrow and retreating fore head. I trover can quite make up my mind whether what my fellow traveler told me waa the aLuoluto ruth; wlietlu r hi ooull lence was cauwxi by the natural yearning of his aoul for human symatuy; or whether, to ine an Americaniwn, he waa merely "lllling OM tip." , , It waa not only my follow traveler a re treating forehead, but the nature of hi trav eling literature, that caused me to look non him as something other than an In tellectual giant. In the flrnt laoe ho waa reading "Isla Unveiled." The "Proceedings of the l'aycliical Society" wuh there, too, untl a fat Ixxik in very large type was lulwlcd, "Fragments and Itenmin of Madame 1! v." Ho wa good enough to offer to lend me one of hi books, and, liko an uh, I gave a Kiiort of Indignation and waved it off. "I have no sympathy with such things," I aid. "A kkeptii, I ioreeive," Mid lie politely. "I l.ok Uon the whole thing, air," I re plied, "a bosh andliumbug, minerablo trash, wretched liaMerdaiih unworthy of notice." And then I glared at him. 1 tried to silence tho little man In deep mourning by looking as much liko the (Jor gon Medusa on ixwailile. Far from being turned to atone, he simply began to wit on the backs of his huudx, than which nothing is more undignified and irritating. "I was like you once," be said with pity; "yea, I was a scoffer once; but I have been bitterly punished in fact, my incredulity waa the cauae of niy bereavement," and he pointed in a solemn manner to the deep black bat band be wore. When I looked up at his hat band I saw the man's name printed in little gold letters upon hla traveling bag, which lay on the rack above his bead "Mr. Augustus Boo byer." When had I beard the name lief ore I Of course it comes back to me in a flash. Boo byerl that waa the man who ran off with little Hetty Btareley, of the Frivolity theatre. I am not a theatrical man, but I saw Miss HUreley in the celebrated ballet of "The Hwallows," and very pretty indeed she looked with her big eyes, her curly black hair and ber dot of a mouth. Hhe was a pretty plump little nonentity till she married Hoobyer, when she became a nine days' wonder. Then she left the stage; disapiwared from the pho tographers' windows, ami nobody ever heard any more of Miss Iletty Htareley. "It's not so very long ago," bo lgnn,"that it waa my privilege to lead to the altar an ex ceedingly lovety girl I worshiped the very ground she trod uion, sir. My wife was so excessively good looking as to attract con siderable attention wherever we went. I was proud of it at unit, but after a while it began to pall. My wife, sir, was a young, inexperienced girl, ami alio felt it bitterly.

"Heme Hay is the most solitary place I know. It is frequented by persons of limited means with largo families. There is a pier a mile long. e punned u delightful fortnight at Heme liny, but it was dull, terribly dull. We were both feeling ruther laired, when I mode an tt'-immUinee while I was fishing for boss with a roil from the pier bead. I used to fish there the greater part of tho afternoon. I had never caught anything, but at a place like Heme Bay one must do something. He was a very decent young fellow, and took a great interest in my lull ing. It 1 bud known at the time who he was, perhaps I shouldn't have been quite so ready to foregather with him. The tact is, he was a professional conjurer, but he was a most gentlemanly young fellow and decid edly good looking. He talked about spirit ualism; he waa an advanced thinker, and I, from the lofty piuuacle of my crass ignor ance, looked down upou the whole thing as boh, humbug and balderdash.' " Hers, still sitting ou bis bauds, be smiled impertinently at me. "Monsieur Kardno (for that was bis pro fessional name) tried to convince me, but in vain. Our stay at Iterne bay was drawing to a close. 'I'm going to give a little seanoe here to-morrow night,' said Monsieur Ker dec. 'I shall be greatly pleased if you would come and look at the wonders the spirits will perform. Don't humiliate me by offering to pay at the door. Here are a couple of tickets.' "J waa about to decline, but my wife gave me one appealing look from those great eyes of ben, which did not appeal in vain. 'We'll oome with pleasure,' said I, and I thought no more about the matter. "As we walked home we stopped to read one of the posters. It was the ordinary pro gramme spirit rapping, thought reading, clairvoyance, and then followed a rather ex traordinary statement: 'Monsieur Kardee, after part the first, will give an illustration of modern conjuring and prestidigitation, without apparatus or accomplices. The whole will conclude with the mysterious dis appearance of a lady selected from among the audience.' We both rather looked far ward to the entertainment as a break to the gull monotony of our dally rvund at Hera "Punctual to the time, we presented oar- selves at the assembly rooms, and were the sole occupants of what were termed the re served fsuteuilt, which were two rows of or dinary cane bottom chairs.

"He must have met with a similar fate." said Mr. Boobyer, who was collecting his impedimenta; "for he never came to receive the money taken at the doors." Sibling Itasn an Alpine Slope. In front of us were a large family of peaks: lis Morterstsch, Fix Tschierva, the Cresta Aginza, lit Zupo, Pit Palu, FizA'ambrena, and, dominating them all in pride and great ness, Pis Berutna, which has an altitude of 13,30 feet above the soa. The sea of ice which encircles it has a circuit of more than fifty miles, and Its azure waves, piled up In defiles or crowded into gorges, run down many steep inclines to the bottom of valleys. In places thoy pass between two rocky points, and, springing upward, remain sus pended over the abyss for a while. Then they break, their debris freeze into a solid mass and form a new glazier, which pursues it slow but sure onward march toward that (mint where the ice begins to melt and form the torrents that feed the great rivers of cen tral Europe. The Ithonn, the Rhine, the Inn and the Anr are among those which thus start from Alpine glaciers. The snow was cleared away from a rock and we sot down to eat our luncheon.

We all sat down on our great coats aud wraps, the guides ahead, and Mademoiselle between me and her father, he holding her by the legs and she holding mine. Then we started; the soft snow flew over us in a cloudy spray; we descended swiftly, and at tho bottom of tho sli ipe we picked ourselves up, shook tho snow out of our eyes, and all declared ourselves delighted.

Now there is but one legitimate way of making the heart strong. That is by taking regular, systematic and sufllcient muscular exercise, into which climbing heights or stair cases enters as a prominent feature. Let a person who Uriels his pulse increased fifty to sixty beats in a minute after mounting a staircase climb a biiiulred staircases day after day for a month or more and he will find that the exertion does not add ten beats to the normal number of his heart throbs. The exercise has acted upon this vital organ just as it does on the 'biceps of a prize fighter or a blacksmith, and strength aud the capac ity for endurance have been the result But this la not all the good that will be gained by climbing a hundred staircases a day say fifty in the morning aud fifty in the afternoon. Doubtless the iters m with a weak heart bos suffered more or less from what is called nervous dyspepsia. His food, instead of being properly digested, has been mainly fermented in his stomach and has caused him various uncomfortable feelings, which he has been iu the habit of attributing to everything but their "proper cause. Not only have the hundred minutes or so spent iu climbing staircases put strength into bis legs, expanded bis chest and saved his heart from fatty degeneration, but thoy have given tone to his abdominal muscles and to his digestive organs. His food no longer lies like a lump of lead in his stomach, torpor baa disappeared from (what we physicians call and which, for the sake of delicacy, I most here designate them) his chylopoetlo vis cera, and his system gets the full benefit of the food which la required for Its nourish ment.

The ltff nulliklag In Which the First Nwpepr West of the Altegheniea Was Printed TortralU of Two Journalistic Ptonem Interesting fteinlntiM-encee. The centennials of Ohio have brought out all the preserved copies of old papers and books, and the paper ran tain some rscy iketebes of old time journalism beyond the Allegheuiea. firm1 ormi or thk kevttckt oazktte. Mr. William Henry Pcixin, of Imisville, has also written an admirable sketch of the apers of Keutucky. Looking over the old peiiers and noting how very small the places were in which some of them were published, the wonder is that they lived ut all. But all food products were "dog cheap," and a printer i-ould gt ft much bread, meat, jxjtatoes. milk, butter, game and whisky for his fifty cents a day then as he docs for his t'J uow. The luxuries of today he did without, and did not know n hat he was losing. Iu fact, most of them had not leen invented. Lexington, Ky., claims the honor of hav ing had the first newspaper in the west, The Kentucky Gazette, tlrt issued Aug. 11, 1M7, by John Bradford. Kentucky was then a county of Virginia, and a land of fighting and fighters. Buckle ought to have analyzed that suite iu his "History of Civilization," for it is a moMt i'rfect illustration of his theory as to tho development of fighting qualities. No tribe of Indians owned the region; all fought for it, and only the most warlike could remain Thus it required tho most determined fighter from the older states to make settle ments there, and of these only the lost fighters survived; and as a result of a century of natural selection ami survival of the llgbtlng est, U hold the Kentuckiau of 18TiM0. It is not surprising, therefore, to learn thut the second editor of The Gazette, Thomas K. Betining, was mortally shot March 9, lttiO, by Charles WickBffe, and that his suewssor, Oeorge J. Trotter, killed Wickliffe in a duel. Bralford, founder of The Gazette, was a veteran of the Revolution and a successful printer of small books and pamphlets. He also wrote a work on the early history of Kentucky. The Gazette was ardently Demo cratic and opoeed to the pride of the Blue Grass region, Honry Clay. It therefore lan guished lu the years of Whig supremacy, and died of inanition in 1848. The Guardian of Freedom waa established at Frankfort, Ky., in 1798, also by John Bradford, in partnership with his son, and iu "long felt want" was the publio printing, which kept it alive many years. The Ken tucky Heriild was established in Lexington in 17Wi, ami iu a few years was absorbed by the Bradford. Between that date and 1811 thirty more papers were started in Kentucky; but by this time papers were common in Ohio and other western states. Two features aliout the old papers are amusing they paid no attention to local affairs, and rejoiced in long and high sounding titles. ' One waa called The Farmers' Library or Ohio Intelli gencer, another The Repository of Human Freedom, and The Liberty Hall and Cincin nati Gazette survives to the present under a much curtailed name. The alence or scarcity of local items re mained a feature of papers in the west, out side the main cities, till after the war. And this is all the more surprising in view of the fact that the papers were generally started to "boom" a new town. The Terre Haute paper of 1WU devotes a fow lines to the fact that the Ploughboy, the first steamer on the upper Wabash, had started for the regions above, and whole pages to publishing leeches delivered in congress. Iu 1K43 died Gen. Tilghman A. Howard, charge d'affaires from the United Htates to Texas, aud the ps.er in Rockville, Lid., where he resided, devoted Just half a column to his life, death, burial and the meeting of the citizens to iass resolutions. But every issue for many weeks contained a full speech of Henry Clay, John M. Htuart or other proml nont Whig, and frequently the entire taper was filled by speeches, editorials and extracts from Sew York iftjiers. Nowadays one may find the complete social history for many years of any country town in the west in the tiles of the local pajier. The oldest existing paper of Kentucky Is The Western Citizen, of Paris, established in 1808. Two years later the noted Humphrey Marshall established The American Republic at Frankfort. Later be established two other iwpers, one of which, The Harbinger, had under its title head tho cut of a rattle snake in coll, aud tho motto, "Wake snakes." Marshall did wake them and many other enemies, and had a stormy life altogether. Bhadrach Penn issued tho first daily paper in Kentucky. The Public Advertiser, at Louis ville, April 4, 1820. ne was a native of the fate, aud ruled despotically till George D. Prentice came and set up The Louisville Journal, Nov. 4, 1830. It jumped in a mouth to the highest place in popularity, and the twelve years' war between Penn aud Prentice was the sharpost known hi western journalism. Penn was a radical Democrat and able writer, but no match for Prentice, whose pungent paragraphs were the delight of the day. Penn removed to St. Louis in 1842, and Prentice lived to fall into errors in newspar work that produced bloody con sequences. His last years were gloomy in the extreme.

VOLAPUK'S INVENTOR DEAD. Father Krlileyer, of Constance, lladen, and III Life Work. The parish priest of the beautiful little town of Constance, liaden, Germany, died the other day. Ho lived quietly, for many years, on the historic green island of Mainau, surrounded by tho limpid waters of Lake Constance. His name was Schleyer, and he was a very remarkable man a scholar, a jxx't, by many considered a genius. His brain conceived and evolved a wonderful thing u universal language, to be spoken and written by all tuitions. Father Schleyer was the inventor of Volapuk. Yet, when be died, the big New York papers devoted but a few lines each to his death. One million people are now studying v ola- puk. Volapuk societies can be numbered by the hundreds. There are great business houses all over the world that use Volapuk daily iu their correspondence. The fact that the language ha grown to sucn proportions, is studied by people of so many different tongues, and even recognized by great lin cuista to be perfectly practicable, is a pretty good indication that the time was ripe for the introduction of the universal language, and that tbe need for such a language had begun to be felt. Th Htnrv of how Father Scn'iever con ceived the idea of the invention of Volapuk is interesting. Nearly ten years ago he was traveling extensively in the interior of Aus tria. He was struck by the number or lan guages spoken by the people of . tbe different provinces. They each had ana nave a dis tinct language, or rather dialect, of their own. These dialects are corruptions, and verv bad on..., that, of all tho known lan guages of the civilized globe. Some speak villainous rrench, others murder toe Ital ian, many butcher the German and English, and so on. ibis condition of things is tbe natural growth of centu ries. Tbe result is disastrous. There is scarcely such a thing known there as a common lan guage. To a jieas untof Hungary tbe language of a peas ant of Silesia was (aud is to this day) mere gibberish, father bchletkb. having no mean ing whatever. The observant priest was an accomplished linguist, having an intimate knowledge of all the modern as well as of many of the ancient tongues. He thought the matter over for several years, until, as he says, "one sleepless night the whole frame work of tbe universal language flashed out before mo." Volapuk is one of numerous attempts at solving the problem of a common language, letting tbe question of their respective merits entirely aside, it is sufficient to say that Volapuk is the only attempted universal language that has ever had the slightest chance of life, and that uo other attempt has ever passed beyond the experimental stage or been actually used, to any considerable extent, for the communication of thought. Its inventor's aim was. first, to produce a language capable of expressing thought with the irreatest clearness and accuracy ; second. to make Its acquisition as easy as possible to 1 . T the greatest uumDor oi numan ueings. inese ends ho resolved to seek by observing the iimwnwi of the manv lanirusires with which he vras acquainted; following them as models wherever they are clear, accurate and aim plo, but avoiding their faults, sobecuritles and difficulties. He took from the English more root words thau from any other lan guage, since English is spoken as a mother tongue by more millions than any other. Forty per cent of the root words are Eng lish. The grammar of the language is very simple. There are no unusual sounds. It can be learned by a child unable to read or write any language. For a considerable time after the appear ance of Schleyer's grammar his adherents were few. His project first spread to Aus tria, where the first society for its propaga tion was formed at Vienna in 1882. Until 1884 Its adherents outside of tbe Oerman speaking countries were very few and scat tered, but in that year it invaded Holland and Belgium, and a great mauy societies mrane no in those countries. It wss intro- itneml to the French nation in 1885 by Pro fessor Kerckhoffs, and many noted French men became interested. It is now studied enthusiastically in the United States, espe cially in Boston and New York. It is not itrcther imnossible that it may some day actually be what its Inventor intended it to be the universal language. ITMk Human Nat-ore.
