, -Gertrude B. DufTee from the Bpaninh.
Wa were the only two ocrtipanta of a com
partment in the express train from Ixintlon
to Follcetitone. My comiauion wan in dtiep
mourning. 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
"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.
Mine was a runaway mutoh," he went on,
"and it made a considerable uiuouut of noise

portion of the volunteers ocrupiod thoir time
in walking up and down in front of my
bouse in order to get a glimpse of my beauti
ful wife. I'm not exaggerating not "the
least bit. At lost, however, it Usvnno un
liearable to both of us. We determined to
seek solitude, and found it at llorne Kay.
"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

dec. 'I shall be greatly pleased if you would
come and look at the wonders the spirits will

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

gull monotony of our dally rvund at Hera

"I am convinced that Monsieur Kardee waa
powerful medium. Then followed part
two, about which there was nothing very re
markable; they were ordinary feats of height

no deception whatever. It i,' be added
soletntily, 'the wrk or the spirit.' I did not
pay much attention to whut I looked upon

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. Thus
refreshed, wo started for tho lower world
again. The guides unwound their rope, we
tied ourselves toget her, and then descended
Bteep and dangerous precipices. By and
by wo reached a gentle incline covered with
snow, and the guide hulted us. Would we
like soino funf he asked. We answered
that we were game for anything, and we
clustered around him. "Well, wo will slide
down this slope. There is no danger, and if
tho lady is not afraid of her fckirls" "I
am afraid of nothing," she interrupted.
"Start u quickly as you please; I nm ready."
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. A few minutes
Inter wo were down at the Morterutscu
restaurant, where we found a carriage, in
which we rode to i'outrtisima. Cor. New

To Make the Heart Nlrong.
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. Dr. William A. Hammond.
Make the Best of It.
Be who makes the best of everything that
happens to him will always have the best
that his circumstances will allow, and will
surely be a much happier man than be whose
habit of mind Is to make the worst of every
thing. Independent.

The centennials of Ohio have brought out

books, and the paper ran tain some rscy

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

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.
The Cincinnati Commercial was bom in
1843, and may be said to have been born
again a dozen years later, when Murat Ilal-
stead got control of tho news column and
established the modern system of haVing
local correspondents in all the towns of the
state to report important facta when they
occur, instead of having them filter to the
city through the slow local weeklies,? aa had
been the custom. The Cincinnati Gaxette
was the first daily paper of the state, and
The Enquirer has been published under its
present name, as weekly and dally, for fifty
years. The Cincinnati Daily Times date
from 1640, and TbeBtar is quite modern. The
cities of northern Ohio did not take noticea
ble rank till sosae time after the completion
01 the Krie canal and its connecting rail
roads, and the great papers of that asctioa
are of correspondingly later date.

ktanils. Nevertheless The Indianapolis Jour
nal and Sentinel have been published aa
weeklies ami dailies something over sixty
years. But the locat ion of Indiana is not
favorable to the growth of great cities or
great daily mjors, and it is matter of sur
prise aud compliment to tueir managers
that tbe Iiidiaiuipoli dailies have attained
Mich high rank. On the other hind, no

country press than Indiana Indeed, it is
loubtful if the country weeklies in any
other state exercise as much power in poli
tics. The ubsenco of any overwhelming

talent in tho smaller can's and towns, ana
decentralization in literature and polities
has been curried to its utmost practicable
limits in that state.
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
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.
