The Treasure Boom and Imperial Apart inents Seated on the Throne. Finally after much waiting and wander ing up and down along cliilly corridors and great strong staircases worn with the monastic tread of long ages, it occurred to some of the more commercial menials that they turn an honest kreutzer. So k one of the more enterprising waylaid a brother a little more profusely covered with gold than Ins fellows, and obtained permission to show me the objects of greatest interest. Several servants ar rangea among tnemseives to pass me from hand to hand, to extract and sub divide the greatest amount of fee. Of what I saw I will speak briefly of only the treasure room and imperial apart merits rarely visited. These treasure rooms of convents, churches and abbeys con tarn objects of greater or less sim ilarity. There are usually among them the appliances of Catholic church worship riclily adorned with precious stones, the skull of some saint blazing with jewels. In this case it was that of St. Leopold, the founder of the abbey. The collection is worth many millions of florins, the principal value being in great diamonds, rubies, emeralds and sapphires, many of them embroidered on priestly robes, themselves precious on account of the sanctity 01 tiiose who once wore them. These treasure rooms are jealously guarded. 1 ou enter by a ponderous door which yields unwillingly to a key as large as that of the gate of a mediaeval city. The treasure is ranged round the room m great cases, each closed with doors almost as heavy, which, thrown open, disclose the objects, the most pre cious in show cases covered with thick glass. I was shown the imperial apartments by an aged darnel, whose soiled apparel did not correspond vth the enormous wealth of the abbey. The novel and striking feature of her face were two teeth, which, descending from beneath the tipper lip, projected over the neither like the tusks of a walrus. They were two of the "pearls that onetime had been stamens 'twixt the pouted petals of hor lips," as a now forgotten American poet has sung. There was notliing unusually remarkable in connection with the apart ments, except the view across the Dan ube through the long series of windows tl " lighted them. The polished floors - re' more slippery than a skating rink, xd the walls were ornamented with paper or with frescoes or pictures of in different merit. At the corner, at the farther end of the long suit, was the tlironeroom, circular, lofty and imposing. Its decorations were of a liigher order. The view from the windows was superb. I seated my self on the vacant throne. The witch smiled approval. Then, quite unex pectedly, she emitted a series of shrill shrieks, that came back in an alarming volley of echoes from walls and ceilings. One would have thought it was the cave of a sorceress and all the demons were howling in chorus. Before I had fairly recovered from my astonishment she turned toward the windows, and, ex tending her skinny hand, executed the gyratory movement of a dervish as she pointed through each, and repeated me chanically and simply the words: Weid ling, Leopoldsberg, Florisdorf, Iedlersdorf, Jedlersee, Stamrnersdorf, Bisambergan genbrum. They were the names of the hills or towns that were in sight or in the direction indicated. I looked back after I had parted from her in the corridor. Her tusks were sawing the air as 6he dropped the kreutzers I had given her slowly from one wrinkled palm into the other. I took a draught of the excellent Khreterneuberger wine in the abbey cel lars in an adjoining street, and taking a last look at the huge imperial crown of sinning copper that surmounts the chapel tower, descended the lill and made my way as hastily as possible across the broad grassy plain to the landing of the Dan ube boat. Austria Cor. San Francisco Chronicle. A Discreet Daughter of the Family. One of Detroit's best known evangelical ministers has a half interest in a 4-vear- daughter. The other day she broke over the traces of discipline and her mother sent her into a closet, with the injunction to tell God all about what a naughty little girl she had been. At the expiration of her x?nance hour she came forth very quiet lv, as if her discipline had had a wholesome effect. "Well, little daughter," said the mother, "did you tell God all about it?" "No, mamma," was the replv; "I des didn't do it, 'tause I fought my papa wouldn't like to let it dot out of the family." Detroit Free Press. HONOLULU, HAWAIIAN ISLANDS.
