When ho began to recover his senses he wiav being driven at a furious speed across the open country. While still in a confused state llerr l'eszel asked his companion whither they were hound, but instead of replying the latter applied a damp cloth to llerr Peszl's face, which caused thu post master to relapse into his former unconscious condition. He hna no recollection of what oc curred for some time afterward, but in tin! morning he once more revived and found himself in a small open trap, seated next to a man lie had never seen before. Another man, in peasant' lrcs,wiw leading the horse, llerr l'es1 at once remarked that his bag of valu ables had disappeared, together with his fur coat, which had been replaced hy a thinner one made of a kind of T role- home-pun cloth. They wero driving along a valley unknown to llerr lVs.l. In the .course! of half an hour they stopped in front of a dilapidated peasant house, built of rough, grav stone. The post master was bidden to nlight, and M as conducted to a large, bare room on the ground floor, where he was kept prisoner for four days. Food was brought to him by the man dressed as a peasant. Last Tuesday, toward three o'clock in the morning. llerr Tes.l was Aroused from his sleep by the same individual, and after dressing himself, was led about two hundred paces from the house, where a sledge was waiting for Them. It was snowing hard, and almost nitch dark. As they drove along llerr Tcszl pressed his jailer with questions; but all the answer he could get was that he was being driven home. Abou' an hour and a half from tho tirr., of "then start they pulled up with'ii forty yards of a small railw ay station.

All this was the work "of aj couple of minutes; the train was in the ' station, and Heir IVszl had only ju-ti time to take his seat without asking! further questions.

How a Swindling Sharper Played It On An Unsuspecting Land Owner. One of tho most expert speculators in Vienna is a ninli named Hcinrich Kulllcr. Over there, however, they with brutal frankness, call such men swindlers. Some of his late tricks are so good that even Jny (iould might take lessons frftni him. The Austrian ((peculator is fully lip to Mr. Ward, on a smaller scale however. Not long since, Kufller appeared in the ollico of a wealthy lumber dealer who owned an immense lumber yard in the heart of the city. At this time there was a perfect mania for building houses in Vienna, and availublo lots commanded fancy prices. "i want to buy the land you have got your lumber yard on. I want to put up a big hotel on it." said Kulllcr. 'f don't care to sell." "Hut I have got to hare it. It is the only suitable place in this part of the city. I'll give you half a million. "I don't want to soil, I would not sell for a npiilion. '1 will give you a million." The lot was not worth a million, but as thi merchant had his lumber on it, and was wealthy, he did not care to ac cept the oll'er. "No, I would rather not." "I'll give,you a million and a quarter, and to show vou that I am in earnest, I'll put up lity thousand marks forfeit. 1 must have a big lot on which to put up my new hotel," said he, placing that amount in thousand mark notes on the table. The poor lumber dealer beeamo nerv ous and excited, (ircal beads of per spiration stood on his brow. He asked for twenty-four hours to think about it. The trade was then concluded. The lumber was to be cleared away before two months. The lift v thousand marks forfeit were to be paid over at the end of a week. The lumber dealer was sat isfied on that point. Ho knew that Kulllcr hail the money. The lumber man then proceeded to hunt for another lumber yard. Suitable vacant lots wero extremely scarce. A land agent, however, who had heard that the lumber dealer was looking for a lot. ollered him one for six hundred thousand marks, but only gave him the refusal of it for twenty-four hours. He said he could get that amount from another party. In his anxiety to sell the place to Kufller for a million and a quarter, the lumber merchant paid down six hundred thousand francs hi (lie agent. Next day Kulllcr notified the lumber dealer that he would pay over the fifty thousand marks forfeit as he was unable to raise the million and a quarter, the purchase money for his lot. With the aid' of a skillful agent, the speculator had sold to the lumbt'i mer chant for six hundred thousand ii'iuUm a lot only worth tour hundred thousand marks, thereby profiting, n'fter paving the fifty thousand marks, a cool loO.OOD marks. The lumber merchants has now two lots on his hands, and is also in posses sion of considerable experience.- -E.r-rhaiujc. SOME SNOW. The Device Designed by an Intelligent Railroad Man to Relieve a Blockaded Train. "This little snow snap doesn't amount to anything," remarked an old railroad man. "If you want to see snow that's snow, just go out to tiu Sierra Nevada on the Central I'acilic. If a train gets stuck in a drift here for half an llour people think it an awful thing, but I re member once where a whole train was buried in the snow for a week. An ava lanche came down the mountain side and buried 'em under some hundred feel of snow. There wa'u't. much use of (Jigging for 'cm, 'cause the snow would pile in. as fast us it could be dug out. lint tin; passengers were starving to death and something lutd to be done. The relief party got a survevor to locate the train, as nearly as possible, and it was designed to put a party on the top of tin; slide with a drill to out a hole down through to the train iu which some food and drink could lie poured. Hut it was soot found that the slide was shift- mg all the tune near the top, and the tubing which was put iu the drill hole was broken off. That scheme had to be abandoned. Then I suggested a plan that was,, immediately 'adopted. We rigged up. a little iron concern to tit one of the rails, attached a rubher hose to it, and (iiished it in by uieaus of iron rods. Hutting on one rod after another we succeeded in shoving it clear in so that it reached the (rain. Using tin rubber hose for a speaking tube we told the prisoners what they should do- At taching the air- pump on, the engine to this hose (hey, punjped in hot soup and bits of meat And bread, vegetables, etc., every time .they, wanted a meal. He tween meals they pumped in whisky, beer, kerosene-nil, and stuff like that'- all through the same tube. Then I had another idea. Jy supplying- the hose wijh plenty of Jiot-w:iter, niid by keep ing tjie' pump going, we succeeded it thawing enough of the snow along tin rail to hit the pa-sseng irs crawl out after they had been in there a week. Hut hat air pump saved their lives. I tell oiran uir pump is a line thing." "O, certainly," said an incredulous listener, "but will you please tell me how they managed to keep lire in the locomotive and work the pump under the snow?" "Don't know anything about, thai. They did it, that's all. Hope no one doubts my t rut h and veracity. If I'd in there I'd have known nil about Hut ' I was on the outside.

THE BRITISH ARMY. Its Strength and Stations-Disposition of 182,000 Men. The following interesting details showing in what portions of the globe Hritish troops are now stationed, with their approximate force in garrison and on active service, have just been pre pared from ollichil sources. '1 lie last returns showed, it is understood, an effective strength of about ls-,0ti0 of all arms--viz; thirty-one regiments of cav alry, tweiilj-four batteries of roynl horse artillery, seventy-six batteries of fii-M artillery, ninety-si batteries of garrison artillery, seventy-two regiipetits of infantry (or 14S battalions), two di visions, one troop, and forty companies of engineers, besides commissariat and transports, medical stall' corps, ete. Dealing first with tho home commands it appears that the northern command, the largest in the Kingdom, which in cludes nearly 7.",000 volunteers, besides yeomanry and militia, has two regi ments of regular cavalry; two divisions of the coast brigade, and six batteries of field artillery, besides depots, and five battalions of infantry, The eastern command (Ma jor ( icneral White, C. H.) Willi headquarters at Colche.-ter, has one cavalry regiment and two de pots of that arm, three batteries and a depot of ai'lilli'ry, a section of the commissariat and transport corps, and three infantry battalions. The wesicrn command (.Major (icneral Sa ver. '. H. ) has in proportion to others a large force of artillery -two batlericsoflior.se, three of Held, and seven of garri-on - besides a division of t lie coast brigade and depots, a com pany of the commissariat and transport corps, and four battalions of infantry. The southern command has altogether one division and twelve batteries of artillery, two companies and a section of engineers, a section of commissariat and transport corps, and six battalions of infantry. The force of the Chatham district consi-ts of eleven companies of engineers, a division and live batteries of artillery, one company of the com missariat and transport corps, and t'wo battalions o'f infantry, hi the south eastern command there are two regi ments of cavalry and nine depots (Canterbury. ) one division and seven batteries of artillery, a company each of engineers and of the commissariat and transport corps, and four battalions of the line. The home-district command has t hree regiments of household cavalry and one of cavalry of the line, a battery of royal hore, and a division of coast brigade artillery, one company each of engineers and of the commissariat :fnd transport corps, and six battalions of the guards. At Woolwich the force is made up of a large body of artillery, two batteries of horse, besides depots and the riding establishments, and seven batteries of field ami g:rri on. Tho Ahlershot command, whic h com pletes those of England and W ales, has three regiments of cavalry, ighl bat teries of artillery, a division, troop, and depot of royal engineers, three com panies and two depots of the commis sariat ami transport corps, and seven line Initiations. Taken altogether, there are thus in tlie nine military districts of England and Wales twelve regiments of cavalfv, sixty-five bat teries and seven divisionsof artillery, a dixision, troop, and fourteen companies of engineers, about a dozen companies ot the commissariat and transport corps, and thirty -eight bat talions of infantry, or a'.Hjtit sixty thou sand of all ranks! The average strength of the army in Scotland was last year only a little over three thousand, and there is reason to believe that Major (icneral Macdonald's North Hritish command -docs not now even come up to that number, the force being represented by one cavalry regi iinent, one battery, and a division of ar tillery, and two infantry battalions. In the three military districts of Ire land, commanded respectively by Major (icneral Knight, Major (icneral Lord f'larina. and Major (icneral Young, tho force shows a decrease in strength com pared with last year, when the average was about twenty-four thousand. The force now distributed over the island comprises six regiments of cavalry, thirteen batteries and two divisions of artillery, two companies of engineers, four of commissariat and transport corps, and twenty-six infantry bat talions, or four battalions less than last year. The channel islands possess ihreo batteries of artillery and two battalions of infantry, about two thousand ollicers and men. India absorbs a very large portion of the. Hritish army, nearly sixty-nine thousand of all arms viz.", Hengal. seven regiments of cavalry, forty-two batteries of artillery, a com pany of engineers, and thirty-one battalions of infantry : Madras, two cavalry corps, sixteen batteries of artil lery, a company of engineers and nine oaiiauons or miantry; Jioniliav, unit cavalry corps, nineteen batteries of artillery, a company of engineers, and nine battalions of infantry; total caval ry, icn corps; ariiiierv, seventv -scvea batteries; engineers, (luce companies; liiiantry.

MERRILL. Stories Told of the Lately Deceased Manager of the Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway Illustrating His Characteristics. Some ten or twelve years ago there was employed in Mr. Merrill's office a clerk in whom complete conlidenoo wan reposed. 'lie Was intrusted with many of the corporation's secrets and given tho handling of funds in large amounts. Unfortunately, the young man com menced sowing his wild oats, found his salary insufllcient to support his ex travagance, ami frequently abstracted kmall amounts from the railway com pany's funds to meet the delicieiiey. These amounts gradually increased in size until the young man, realizing the position he was in, made one grand haul and left for parts unknown. II in departure led to a discovery of all his peculations. The information was rum. muniealcd to Mr. Merrill, who, after a moment's reflection, sent for the com pany's special agent, and ordered that ollieial to institute a searcli for the ab sent clerk. "l'ollow him," said Mr. Merrill, "to China if necessary, and bring him back. Keep this mutter quiet and spare no expense in bringing the young man back to this office." The few other persons who knew of theeinbez.Ienient were enjoined district secrecy, and Very few ever learned ol the f:i"ts. Any inquiry which might be made regarding the young man's ab sense was met by tin; reply thai he was taking his summer vacation, but just where was not known. In the meantime a diiigent hunt for the young man was in progress. He was traced to Detroit, and from (hero through Canada to tho Atlantic coast, where he sailed for Europe just twelve hours in advance of the special agent's arrival. Authorities on the other side of the Atlantic w.-re cabled, and the young man's arrest ordered. This was successfully a 'eoniplishcd, the clerk was returned l i America and trans ferred to Iheciisioilv of the railway com pany's agent. To"that ollieial a full confession was made, and, linding him self completely in the company's power, theyouug man calmly contemplated his fate, expecting nothing less than a Statu prison sentence. He was quietly taken before Mr. Mer rill, who, to his complete surprise, ap proached him pleasantly, took him warmly by the hand, and 'said: "Well, back again I see. Sorry vou staid so long, as we needed you. ' Mad a goo I time, though,! hope. Now. (i , your desk is just as you left it. No one has disturbed a paper, and you can get to work at once. Here, look over these accounts, and see that they are properly cheeked." The young man. dumbfounded at the reception, us in fact war) the special agent, burst into tears, and could not fully r alic the situation, until Mr. Merrill again broke in with: "Come, what are yen doing there? (iet into that chair as quick as you can and cheek those accounts. And, by the way, I don't want to ever hear a 'word regarding certain events of recent date, which you perhaps know of." The young man did go to work, be gan a new life, at'ended lo his duties as In; never hd before, advanced him self in rank as a railway employe, made good to the company the amount he had stolen, and .several years later left the company with as good a letter of recommendation as any man ever re ceived. He to-day occupies a promi nent position with one of the leading railways of the country, and for it thank his old employer. S. S. Merrill. Manager Merrill's regard for faithful employes is well illustrated in the fol lowing incident: A colored boy, who had some time previous served as a por ter on Mr. Merrill's private car. and who had rendered excellent service in that capacity, was accidentally killed. Upon learning of the accident Mr. Mer rill immediately gave orders that every necessary arrangement for the funeral service and burial of tlie young man be made, his own purse contributing to that purpose. The day of the funeral chanced to be an unusually busy one at the (icneral Manager's office, and from early morning the place was fairly besieged with callers desirous of making contracts for rail, tio.s. spikes and other supplies, representatives of vari ous corporations, and individuals having personal matters to at lend to. Mr. Mer-' rill disp ised of them as fast as he could, but as the day moved on into the after noon there was yet more than a haif do.en in waiting. Asccrtiiniii"- the wants of each, he granted an audience to those with whom a meeting could not lie conveniently postponed, and then, glancing into tlie waiting-room, he said: "( ientlemen, you must excuse me to-day. I have not time to consider your cases t his afternoo' s I must, attend a funeral." And iu the midst of the lowly but honvst-henrteii people who were present at the faithful porter's funeral was Man ager S. S. Merrill. The purse of Mr. Merrill has scores of times been quietly opened to the relief of poor and n -edy persons, and it will never be known what amount he has distributed in this quiet manner. Sev eral years ago a subscription paper was circulated in the Milvvauk -e iv St. Haul general offices to raise a few hundred dollars for the relief of a deserving per son. It chance I that Mr. Merrill was out of the city at the time, and before lie had returned the required amount had been raised and turned over to the person for whom it was intended. A short time after that Mr. Merrill h 'ard of the transaction; and ' immediately summoned the person who ha I circii 'ated the subscription paper. "How much did ou jail me down for?" inquired Mr. Merrill, drawing his pocket-book. "Nothing! I o yon mean to say that you permitted that list to be clos.tl niihoiit my name on it? V:ov never let that thing occur again, if vou wish to be friendly with, me," and tlie circulator readily 'saw tlpit, Mr. .Merrill felt injured that he had not been per milled to contribute his portion to tho charitable fund which had been raised. and turned over. -Miwaul-rr Snttuitl.
