A DAY ON THE RHINE. A Georgian's Experience on the Far- Famed liiver. Matknce, Oct. I.—There is no sceiie more delightful on the whole continent of Europe than the valley of the Rhine. Lovely and charming in its natural beauty aud rich in its historical memories, art in all of its departments has been placed under tribute to enhance its attractiveness. Not so majestic as the Hudson, nor grander in its natural attractions than the Connecti cut valley, yet it has lived in song and story over a thousand years. Where is the sohool boy or girl either who has not, some time in their scholastic life, repeated or heard Mrs. Bolton's ‘‘Bingen on tie- Rhine" declaimed f In all well-developed plans for trips on the continent, the Rhine is never omitted So after spending a lew days in the grand old city ui Cologne, a party, consisting of Hon. D. P. Thompson, a banker and large lumber merchant ol Portland. Ore., and hi.s excellent wife; Miss Beliof Bosion. Mass., Miss Ida Wilbourne, of Macon, Ga., and the writer and wife, arranged for a day on this classic stream. Cologne is an old city, founded by l T bii, in the days of Agrippa. In 51 A. L>. Agrippina, the mother of Nero, located a colony of Roman veterans, and it was called Column Claudia Agrippina. From the end of (he tirth century Cologne be longed to the Kingdom ol the Franks. Through ail tiie conflicts of the dark ages the city maintained its identity, although in the sixteenth centifrj, from the continual discord between the leading families, its commerce lost its importance. The banishment ol the Protestants in lfiO-S proved a serious and almost fatal blow to its existence. It wus not until 1815 when under Uu.-.situi rule Unit Cologne began to revive, while iio>v it ranks as the lirst city in the Rhenish Provinces, having a popula lation of ltd,.(it), live-sixths of whom are Roman Catholics. Tin- cathedral is said to be the most magnificent gothic edili e m the world. It certainly is a marvel of architectural beauty and finish. It was coninienced in 1348 and was not completed until 1880. IT WAS A BItIUHT DAY iu September when the American pilgrims embarked on the s!earner Wilhelm Kaiser at the landing in Cologne. The river at this point is 133 feet above the level of the sea. and -1153 yards wide. There was a goodly company, but mostly natives, who spoke in an unknown tongue. I never can get used to being a foreigner, but s.x in our own party rendered the day most delight ful. There were a number of English people aboard, but, like they are at home, they kept themselves aloof. With all due defer ence to their worth uml cleverness, they arc the queerest peopl - on earth. They take all their pleasures sudiy, and i there is any enjoyment in their methods it is purely Hellish, for no otner person can get near enough to realize it. I have traveled 300 miles on the same seat witn two English men, and not one word was spoken on too trip. But Hans and Franleiu with their huge basket, and long necked bottle; and the everlasting pipe, are quite different on a journey. Good humor and good cheer is everywhere around them. France was represented by a family or two, but they were reticent, being in an enemy’s country. The day w.isall that could be desired and leaving at 8 o’clock, the hour was propitious lor easy movement.. The steamer was neat and comfortable, and the purser the jollie.it Dutchman of 375 pounds 1 ever saw. He moved about the deck with ma jestic strides. The engine struggled ener getically, for it had to stein both tide and w ind. The little steamer moved slowly, but gracefully, up the lull, for we luade the as cent of lot) l'eet during the day. The whole scene over which the eye could range was a picturesque landscape. Noth ing of special interest was noted until we reached Bonn. The lofty tower of the Munster, tlie handsome residences on the river above the town, tho long buildings of the university peeping from among the trees, give the town a very attractive ap pearance from the steamboat. Bonn is a city of :,000 iu. -bitants, the seat of one of tlie mod noted universities in the world, and has about 1,300 students in attendance. It was one of the first Roman fortresses on the Rhine, and is often mentioned by Tacitus. The city lias many points of at traction, but we had no time for investiga tion. From this point the river is narrower and the scenery more fascinating. WE SOON REACH ROLANDSECK, one of tlie most, lieautifui and frequented spots on tlie river. We puss an island just be fore reaching i lie village, on which there is a nunnery of ancient origin, built about the twelfth century. It was suppressed in 180.’, but was opened again as a girls’ school in 1845. It lies hidden amid shrubs and tret's. Just above it 500 feet is Roland’s Arch, the last relic of the castie built by the re nowned Knight Roland. And on this there hangs a taie, which I must condense from the pen of unother: Roland was the paladin of Charlemagne. He went as a guest of Count Heribert, the lord of tho Seven Mountains, to the ensile of DraciieiiLiurg. The peerless Hildegunde, daughter of the host, according to custom, received him. Her beauty captivated him and soon they wer ■ a.danced lovers. Their happiness was brief. Roland was summoned by Charlemagne to the crusade. It was re ported that tlie bravo knight had fallen by the bands of the iniidels. In her iiii-omota ble grief llildeguude took refuge in tho nun nery on tlie little island. The report was unfounded, but when Roland returned to claim his bride he found .she was forever lost to him. In despair be built the castle of wiiich one crumbling arch remains to tell of his devo tion. Here he lived; the only comfort iu his solitude was catching an occasional glimpse of Hildegundo’s fair form as she pas-ed to and fro irom the chapel. One day he missed her from the procession, and soon the tolling bell told tho mournful story that his beloved was no more. From that mo ment Roland never spoke again. His heart was broken. One morning he was found cold and lifeless, his glassy eyes still turned toward the convent chapel. Just one-half mile from this broken arch is a tower on the hill called Oberwinter, which affords one of the finest scones on the Rhine. Tlie villugu of Rolaiidseck and the Draehenfels, with its castle, toe cliffs of AValkenbtirg, and the whole of the peaks of the Seven Mountains, upward of thirty in number, form a picture of incomparable beauty, the lovely island, with its nunnery peeping out from under the trees, and the grand river itself constituting the foreground. ON EITHER SIDE, the banks were covered with vineyards laden with rich and tempting fruit. The peasants were diligent, in their labors to keep them dressed, au<l it was not unc mi moil to see scores of women singularly costumed clambering up the steep hillside where it would seem a goat could scarcely go. Oue remarkable feature of the agricultural help is that nine-tenths of them are women. The men are all in the army ami the women are left to till the land. The results are very creditable to tlie German women. The next place of interest was Coblenz, at the confluence of the river Moselle and the Rhine. It is the capital of the Rheims province, of Prussia, and the seat of the civil nud military authorities. It, has a imp utation of 31,000, and a garrison of 5,000. It is one of tho most important centres of the wine trade, and manufactures large quantities of chuippagne, which And-; a market all over the world. Its history itatse> back to the fifth century, aud it is beautiful in situation, standing as it dues at the junction of two of the most pictur esque rivers in Europe. THE WHOLE WAY HAS BEEN ONE of the most attractive routes in the conti nental trip. Tlie expressions of admiration came from all quarters, and even our English cousins became somewhat interested in some of the dim ming scenes. At the stern whs a dark, slender man, with his foot resting upon the seat and his elbow upon his knees, and bis face on his hands, *~ > oly absorbed iu bis own thoughts. As 1 approached him he gave me a startling gaze as he looked up. I apologized as host 1 could for disturb ing his reverie, acknowledging myself an American in quest of information. His face assumed a quiet composure. I spoke of the grandeur of the scenery through which we were passing. In a subuued voice, in liuif English and calf French, lie revealed to me the burden of his thoughts. He insisted that the Rhine was the natural boundary of France, and that the people over these hills and in these verdant valleys were groaning under the burdens of Germany, but that their day of deliverance was at hand. Lilting his hand upward with excitement, he exclaimed: “As sure as that sun shines to-day. Lorraine and Alsace will he avenged.’’ Remembering where he was, his vo ce lowered, and, look ing about him and seeing he was not ob served, continued his execrations upon Her many and the Germans. I asked him if he thought France was on equal looting with Germany in case of war. With a knowing wave of the hand he replied: “We are ready; we have no fears of the issue.” He was called away by his more prudent wife to another part ol the vessel. RESUMING 51V PROMENADE, and busy with tlie thoughts of the French man, just us 1 had pu s.-d the pilot's stand, going toward the forecastle, 1 was asked by a jolly looking German, in plain English, the privilege of a light, as 1 was smoking. He seemed communicative, and 1 was anx ious to hear the otherside, and I soon Inund the German ready to dele and his country. The German army jxTU.ips was never in better lighting trim, never more eager to meet, the foe. Their confidence, born of for mer success in conflict with the French, is ■iich as they do not dream of defeat They laugh in derision at the threats aid boasts of tlieir neighbors. Tins gentleman, who was above ordinary intelligence and accom plishments, assured me that if tlie conflict war forced upon them, it would be for the utter dismemberment of the French nation. Everv fort would be dismantled or garri soiled with German troops and the French army disbanded, and not only Alsace and Lorraine, but the whole of France, would be made tribu tary to the German Empire. When 1 laughed at what seemed to me au impossi bility, he retorted emphatically that tho thing was practicable, and nothing less would compensate for the loss of life and treasure if this conflict was brought on. When I told him that England could not af ford to allow such a disturbance of Euro pean power, ho replied that England was helpless, having more than she could do to maintain her own existence, so dispropor tionate was her empire. BOTH GERMANY AND FRANCE are on a war footing, and the feeling between them is ut the highest tension, and it seemed even then, that they could not en dure the strain much longer. Both are con fident. As I turned away I could not but wonder how people could be so mistaken mid misled. The occasion was all that was wanted for the explosion. When a few days later 1 heard ot the firing on the German frontier, nod the wounding of the French St. M. ilt Wangen, and the killing of Brig non, liis companion, I thought tlie hour had come, blit fortunalelv the day has been deferred. But how long? The day was fast waning, and it was near 7 o’clock when we came in sight of Bingen, so celebrated in song. It is a town of some 7.000 inhabitants. The Romans, when iu possession, erected a castle here, amt during the middle ages it was a free town of the empire. The ruins of the old castle remain, it having been destroyed by the French in 1080 We had but a short time at this point,and could not have learned much if we had staved longer, as we met no one who spoke English. It was now quite dark, so we left for Mayence, the point of rest, eighteen miles distant, which we reached about 0 o’clock. The darkness gave us time to compare notes. All were agreed that it had been oue ol the most enjoyable days of our lives. And yet ail wore of the opinion that America furnishes as beautiful scenery and grander mountain heights than any we lia<l beheld that day. Still we would Hot have returned homesatisfl -d without tuia “day on the Rhine.” “It was a thing of beauty ,”'&nd consequently will “be a joy torever. Bam Lk Reve. A SAGACIOUS DOG. How a Cunning Canine Tried to Fool a Shipmaster. From the San Francisco Call. Capt. Williams,of the ship St. Paul, lying at Given street wharf, is the possessor of a valuable setter. The dog has lived with the captain’s family in the East for some years, and is a most intelligent animal. Being detected in some sheep worrying operations back East, the dog fell into disgrace, and as a punishment was sent to sea on the St. Paul. The captain had a nice house built for him on the deck abaft the mainmast. Since arriving in port every night the dog has been fastened in hb ken nel with a collar attached to a chain. Every evening on going on board it has been ( .'apt. Williams’ habit to go the kennel and pat the dog before going to his berth. A few nights ago, on going to the kennel, as usual, the captain iound that a dog was there as u.ual, but it dal not feel to the touch like the family setter, and had no collar. < >n procunn ; a light he found that a strange dog occupied the house. He left the dog there and retired. Next morning lie found lift own dog in tho kennel us usual with its collar on looking as inno cent as if it had been there all night. In the evening tho captain kept watch, and shortly after nightfall the strange dog came on board again and went to the kennel, 1 he setter with its paws slipped off its collar and scooted over the gang plank for a run ashore, the strange dog taking liis place. He returned next morning at daybreak, slipped on his collar,an.l was all ready to be patted when the skipper came out for his early coffee. Capt. Williams then clinched ail extra hole in the collar and awaited developments. Just when the elec.ric iight was lit on Telegraph Hill the strange dog came on board again, and, going to the kennel, prepaid and to take his place as usual. The setter could not get tin* collar off and had to remain. The dogs, who were watched, had an animated conversation in canine, Volapuk or some other language, and then the setter retired to rest, while th ■ strange dog wended its way on shore, pon dering on man’s inhumanity to dogs and sorry that its newly-made friend could not go and “run down the rag’’ in the com jinny of tho select coterie of dogs that nightly gather on the sea wall and adjacent wharves. Importance of One Representative. From the Washington Critic. There is a Congressional vacancy in the Second district oi Rhode Island, which de rives peculiur importance from the fact that unless it is carried by the Republicans they will lack one ot a majority of tue States, and, in that event, would not lie able lo elect their candidate for President, should the election lie thrown into the House of Representatives. The States, as they now stand politically, have seventeen Democrat ic and nineteen Republican delegations in Congress, the New Hampshire delegation being a tie. Should Rhode Island elect a Democrat that State will also be a tie, and neither party will have a majority in the House. The House failing to elect, the Vice President bccom -s President on .March 4 following, and this officer, being ehosm by tiie Nenati, would, as that body now stands, lie a Republican. Tile Senate consists of thirty-nine Republicans, counting Mr. Itid dleberger us a Republican, and thirty-seven Democrats Should Air. Riddleberger not vote, or vote with the Democrats, there would he a tie in the Senate, and no Vice President could lie chosen under the con stitution. Hungary’s Delegation.

CHRIST PREACHED BEFORE JOSS. A Curious Double Dedicatory Service In the New Pagan Shrine. From the Arc York Shu. One of the most novel, as well as the most unique, dedication services tliut ever hap pened in New York, or elsewhere, was the one held last evening at IS Mott street, the Lun Gee Tong Society rooms, occupying the entire second floor of the largest build ing in China. It has been ttie headquarters of New York Chinese lor the past six years, but recently the members, some 5,000 in number, were dissatisfied with the appear ance of the rooms and the general insignifi- cance of the “joss shrine” or temple attached to them. A liberal subscrip tion brought forth thousands of glittering coins. A commission went to Hong Long, China, where a few weeks ago it not only secured appropriate furniture and other gorgeous Oriental ornaments, but also a brand new but tearful looking joss, with joss house and ail, the canopy around and on top of the joss house, some fifteen feet high by twelve wide, being most ingeniously and fantastically carved upon n species ol hard wood inlaid with various shades of pure gold, the figures upon this representing various sacred emblems, such ns the drag ons, cranes, and the Sacred Hhi Lin, the birth hour companion of Confucius, as well as the managers and angels of the “other region.” in front of this gorgeous heap was the magnificent altar, said to have cost over *1,0)0. On top of this altar were the im mense urns and vases of solid silver, some to take the places of candlesticks, while others were lor the burning of incenses. The rooms were i iuhly papered and carpet ed, while from the walls and ceilings hung lanterns and other Oriental ornaments. The dedication, as originally intended, was to be purely Oriental in all its details, but almost at the very last moment some ('hritianized Chinamen, who were members of the Lun Gee Tong Society, made objec tions to the committee, and insisted that as members they have just as much to say in its dedication as their heathen brethren. Led by Mr. Show Shin, a leading Chinese missionary, who has been preaching for the past few weeks in the rear rooms of 18 to his fellow countrymen of Jesus Christ and His saving powers, the committee was finally made to consent to a double ded ication —that is. both Christian preaching and joss stick burning, both at the same time and in the same place. Mr. Show Shin preached Christianity to about 300 members of the Lun Gee Tong, while Dr. Young Tye Hing led the joss stick burning proces sion toward the shrine of Kwau Goon. The first preached long and loud upon the pecu liar saving power of Jesus Christ. The lat ter simply burned a bunch or two of per fumed joss sticks and nearly half a ton of counterfeited Chinese pajier money ns a thanksgiving offering to the mighty joss for his many mercies toward them, financially and otherwise, and especially protecting from the a saults of Kearneyisni. Mr. Show .>lllll, the missionary, thinks of preaching in the temple every Sunday. Wong Chin Foo. TRANSPLANTING TEETH. A Curious and Successful Operation a Colored Man Underwent. From the Sew York Sun. Probably one of the most distinguished colored men in town just now is the porter at the Dental Depot. Ninth street and Broadway. He suffers a penalty peculiar to famous folks, that is, a weariness of the jaw. But the weariness in his case is not duo to oratory He has a transplanted front tooth, and 800 dentists who meet at the Dental Depot are trying to spoil the shape of hte mouth by noting, frequently, the progress of the new incisor. Dr. Samuel C. Spooner, who saw the tooth put in, told a ’Sun reporter yesterday just how tho operation was performed, ’file porter is rather good-looking and proud ol it. The young men at the Dental depot told him six months ago that the cavernous s]>ace in t he glittering line of enamel marred his beauty. They suggested that he ought to have the space filled with u new natural tooth, to be put in by the new process, ami warranted to last forever or until the origi nal owner of the extracted fheisor claimed it in the New Jerusalem. Of course the (Kil ter wanted to know if the operation was going to be very painful. He was told that it would not be, and he consented to let a well-known dentist insert the tooth. A fine specimen from a collection in the Court lmdt Institute was selected. It was scraped and thoroughly cleansed by immersion in a chemical disinfec tant The operation was performed in the presence of a roomful of dentists. The porter was a little frightened by the display of lances and other murderous in struments. One of the conditions upon which he suffered himself to become a mai tyr to science and at the same time improve hi- looks, was that he should have plenty of whisky to sustain him. He drank three glasses and then sat in the capacious chair. The operator lanced the gum and began boring a hole in the bone. The porter gripped lhe arms of the chair and two tears trickled down his < hecks; but lie was game. He merely muttered, “More whisky,” which he got right away, and let the operator go on with his painful work. The boring and cutting was soon over. Then the tooth—may be from the mouth of some fair woman who did not have enough like it to warrant her keeping it in and so got a whole set of porcelain from her dentist—was forced, gently at first, into the bleeding orifice. This was more painful than the boring, and caused a flow of more tears and whisky. At last the tooth was forced so far in that tile bleeding edges of the gum enclosed it tightly. All the dentists gathered around the porter at the next meeting of the dentists and made his jaw pretty tired examining the new tooth. It was almost as solid ns one of his best old teeth. To-day it is the finest tooth the porter has, and, unlike his other teeth, it will never ache and never decay. How the Washington Girls Utilize Their Presents of Roses From the Philadelphia Telegraph. This is the season here when roses are scattering their blooms and leaving bare tho s iff, thorny bushes in tho gardens. They have been beautiful all the summer, but the last arc now going. It is the favorite flower to present to a young lady here —not a sin gle bud, but a bunch as big as you can carry. There is another old-fashioned idea that a romantic young lady always takes the flow ers sent h-r by her most devoted admirer, and nuts them away with a lock of his hair. In ; fter-life siie may drag them out of some dark corner, and make him ashamed of his extravagance. But that is not wliat the Washington girls do with their roses. They wear them i:i their belts until they are faded. Then they strip off the leave* and put them in some handsome urn or jar, with spice> mid per fume, or with just the perfume anil glycer ine. Then they have a “rose jar,” or pot pourri. It differs from other potpourris only in that the leaves of no flowers except those presented bv some favorite or fav orites are admitted. Sometimes the blos soms of violets and other sweet flowers are used with the roses. It is only then valued for its fragrance and the romantic associa tion. Another way is to use the rose leaves and glycerine only. Then the young lady keeps away chapped lips by the use of this delicate salve. It takes many flowers for such a jar, but the lady would have no claim to being a lielle if she could not collect enough during a season. The size of the jars varies according to the measure of the flowers the fair one receives, and there is a rivalry to be able to display the largest jar. Sometimes the ves>ol iii which the leaves are packed is quite beauti ful and expensive. When it is remembered that in the dead of winter a bunch of flowers may cost anywhere from $5 to $3O, accord ing to their rarity, the costly character of the contents of the jar may lie appreciated, Phucbk Hicks, of Petersburg, Vo., has mar res! a v blower with thirty one children. She is his eighth wife “NEXT I” j Married in Baltimore in a Barber Shop for Want of a Better Place. From the ISaltim <re American. j There was quite a sensation yesterday even ing in East Baltimore over the marriage of a young couple in tho barber shop of George Fitzberger, on Bank street near Broadway. About 5:80 o’clock, when business was a lit tle quiet, a man apparently about 85 years of age walked into the shop and said to the owner in a low tone; “Are you the proprie tor ?” Mr. Fitzberger replied that lie was, and the man, with a smile, asked if he hail any objection to his using his shop for a short while, saying ho wanted to get married. Mr. Fitz berger assented, and lie rushed out in an ex cited manner, and in about two minutes re turned with his intended bride. The young lady was a brunette, about 20 years of age, and very pretty. She was dressed in black, and wore a black hat, around which was twisted a black crape l and. When she was being led into the shop, she appeared some what embarrassed. The man, a blonde, seemed more excited than tho lady. Tho minister, a tall, stout man, with red side whiskers, soon followed. He was a strang er in the vicinity, and refused to give his name. The pair took up a position in the rear end of the establishment, with their backs to the cup < a*, the bride smiling. They joined hands, and the reverend gentleman tied tilt* nuptial knot. When the ceremony was finished the groom drew his bride toward him, as if to administer the usual kiss; but she drew away from him bash fully, and glancing at the spectators, said: “Oh, no. John.” They left the shop imme diately, as happy as two larks. When the couple entered the shop there were only four persons in the place—Mr. Fitzberger, Mr. Louis Lehman, who was being shaved at the time, another customer, and the shop bov. Mr. Lehman and Mr. Fitzberger were chosen as witnesses, and signed the certifi cate. The license gave their names as John J. Corcoran and Ida Shaw. They thanked the barber and walked hurriedly up the street arm in arm. Before asking per mission of Mr. Fitzberger, the couple went to a store on the corner of Bank and Ann streets and tried to get a room where the knot could be tied. They stood on the cor ner for some time when the man went in and bought a couple of toma toes, which the young lady wanted. Each took one and ate it as they stood on the corner. They talked some minutes, anil were soon joined by two others —the preacher and another young man. The four then held a consultation, when it was decided to ask Mrs. Murphy, the owner of the little grocery store, to give them the use of her dining room for a few minutes. Mrs. Murphv seemed astonished, but recovering herself, promptly said no. The man walked out and the quarttete went down the street and thence to the barber shop. Weather Indications.

The approaching gala performance of "Don Giovanni” has set ull the Paris ehroui queurs on the track of Mozart’s biography. H rue curious knowledge has been oppor tunely aiied. Here is the story, the authen tic story, of the burial of the great com poser: The interment took place on Dec. 6, 1791, in the cemetery of St. Marx, at Vienna. In the midst of the ceremony a violent storm broke forth in sudden furv, and the rain fell in such torrents that all the guests and friends dispersed. The interment continued, and in the confusion the site of his special grave was not remarked. None of his friends —and many of them were very rich —had thought of securing for him a private grave. He was buried in a common fosse, with many others. A few days afterward his widow triod to identify his place of sepulture and was unable. In 1859 the mu nicipality of Vienna thought to render hom age to the memory of the great composer. A monument was to be ejected over his tomb. Then it was found that the tomb could not lie identified. Up to that time no cross, no sign, no funereal emblem indicated the resting place of Mozart.
