WALT WHITMAN’S NOVEMBER.
ffb* Foot Rallies From His Illness and Is at His Work Again. From the Philadelphia Press. About six weeks ago the children on street, below Fifth street, in Camden, wor e asked to play on the north side of the street, for Walt Whitman, the poet, whose frame house stands on the south side, was ill. A few days since the children took tbeir velocipedes and skipping ropes back to tbe south side, for the poet was much better. Sinoe the 3d of June his big armchair, ■which has stood for so many years facing the window on the first floor, has been empty, and the frame of the window has lacked the picturesque, kindly face, with its background of flowing white hair. On that dav Mr. Whitman was stricken and has kept his bed over since until Monday. The Ct was spending the day, Sunday, as has n his custom for the last four years, with e friend, Thomas Harned. During the afternoon he drove out in his carriage with another close friend, Dr. Richard M. [Buck, of London, Ont. After the drive the par tial paralysis came on and with it an in coherence of thought and speech which threatened to leave the poet’s mind in a state of coma. l)r Buck is the surgeon general of the Dominion of Canada and a specialist on diseases of the mind. He has studied Mr. Whitman’s case, and on the evening of the attack advised the poet’s friends to talk and question him uninterruptedly, that his mind might be kept awake and his thoughts act ive. The week following was filled with pre monitory symptoms and at the end of the seven days the stroke of paralysis came in h!1 itt severity, and the poet was ralegated to his bedroom with Dr. N. M. Baker to nurse him. The nurse found his position something of a sinecure, for his patient would have none of him and it was only by anxiously watching for an opportunity that the young doctor was ever able to rendpr the poet a service. Mr. Whitman’s life is a solitary one and he iias grown independent, of phy sical aid. Though a very old man, he pre ferred to help himself rather than rap with bis big cane, which is always at his elbow, for others. In the morning the sound of bis shoe on the bare floor of his bed room as he completed his toilet by stamping his foot in it was the first intimation the nurse would receive that his patient was up and doing. The poet likes to be alone, unless his friends are his companions, and of late months rarely sees the casual visitors who cross the rivor to see the man whose books they may have read and whose personality they may admire. PECULIARITIES OF HIS LIFE. Alone with his housekeeper he reigns un disturbed in the two-story frame house editing his random verses and essays and watching the children from his leather chair at the window. In the morning after breakfast his housekeeper asks him with as much regularity and solemnity as though she were saying grace: “And what wiu to-day bring forth, Mr. Whitman?” “I wonder, Mary,” the poet returns, as he rises from the table. For three years this little dialogue has been spoken. It shows Walt Whitman’s “swoet content” with each day of what he calls the closing season of his life. One of Mr. Whitman’s closest friends says that the first intimation he re ceived of the poet’s recovery was when he noticed tiiat tbe mass of books, newspapers and manuscripts which litter the front sit ting room had broken forth in the invalid’s bedroom, and swamped it. Mr. Whitman’s study, or wherever he works, is the ideul of that multitudinous individual’s opinion—tbe general reader’s—of what a literary man's Workshop should be. He believes that the place for anything is the place where he puts it, and his housekeeper dares not for nor life’s sake “tidy up” the heaps of papers, books and pamphlets which fill his room. During his illness he rose at 9or 10 and read his letters as he ate his breakfast. Aft er breakfast he showed the diversity of his choice in newspaper literature by reading. In past days the poet read the papers through out, to-day he but skims them, sufficiently, however, to talk intelligently on all that dost deeply interests the public. In theaft ernoon he wrote letters to his friends, an swering the many notes of inquiry and sympathy that his illness had called forth. AT WORK ON HIS NEW BOOK. In theevoning Horace Traubel,the treasur er of the Contemporai-y club and one of Mr. Whitman’s oldest young friends, would as sist the poet in editing his new book. When one of the reporters called to see Mr. Whit man the other day ho found him sitting in an armchair in his bedroom with the proof sheets up to his knees. A writing-pad was on his knee and numerous photographs of Bliss Hicks, of whom the poet was writing, w:re scattered over the room. The poet has fallen away somewhat since his illness. Ho spoke slowly and with apparent difficulty. “I call it my war paralysis,” said tbe poet. “The doctors and I have agreed to call it that, and perhaps you had better use the term. It came immediately after the war. I wqs filled with emotion, with excitement, hope and energy then. I thought all America was going to the bad. It has vis ited me six or soven times since, leaving me each time a little weaker and shakier. This time has been a p etty bad one—as bad as any of them. And then old age and—and infirmities all make me a little weaker. I have been a prisoner in this room for six weeks, but we tliink we are going to make a little rally. “You see, we are at work," ho added, raising the writing-pad in his lap. “And what is the book going to contain?” someone asked. “Essays and swept-up memoranda,” re turned the poet: “poetry, additional poems fit to be put on as an annex to ‘Leaves of Grass.’ I would have had it fjjtished if this trouble had not caught me triping. We have decided to call it ‘November Boughs.’ It will have a tinge of the closing season about it.” A ONE EYED ROMANCE. Begun Years Ago in Austria %nd End ing at tbs Golden Gate. From the Xew York Graphic. Way back across the ocean in an Aus trian village there dwelt two peasant fam ilies, Sresovich and Vojvodich. Mr. Sreeo vich was the possessor of a largo farm com prising four acres, and he had seven lusty sons who tilled the soil with him. By rigid economy they were enabled to get suffi cient to eat "for themselves, and after they did thanked the Omnipotent that there had hot been eight, for then one must have starved or all gone slightly hungry. The Vojvodich family was not much better off. The Vojvodich family contained a beauti ful and ornamental creature in the person of Miss Luce. But Miss Lnce was not only ornamental. Hhe was useful —sbo could Si tok hay, grub the turf and haul the pro uce to market. Often while working by the side of the Sresovich fence did she challenge the fjres gvioh boy* to deeds o( coaipetition, strength and endurance, and %nch contests always resulted in Luoe's victory, except in the care of Rozzo Sresovich. He alone was her superior. So between the two there grew a liking— good old solid liking after the Austrian fashion. In the tw.' light when the cuckoo called they would go down the lane to the village hand in hand, speechless save in looks and love. They dreamed of marriage and a magnificent four acre farm, but the awful fate stared them in the face that the Hresovich farm "ould not support one more per month. So there thon came the idea of the fabled land of wealth—California—where money grew on trees and of food there was plonty. So Rozzo concluded to emigrate, build a home, Plant some money trees, and then send for Luco. It was settled that he should go, *nd though Luce wept many tear* and p' eseed K ouzo’s hand and bogged him to •toy. yet they parted and Kozzo came to America and drifted to Oregon, where in a few years be has acquired a home. Two months ago he concluded to send for Luce, su the meantime, it must bo stated, though Rozzo did not write it to Luce, he had been afflicted with small-pox, and when the dread disease had left him it carried one of his eyes with it, and his face was horrid to look upon. He wrote to Luce telling her to come, and enclosed $l5O to pav her expenses. She has a cousin living in Oakland, and for the re spectability of the thing she went to hiß home. Rozzo agreeing to meet her there and marry her. She arrived three weeks ago full of expectations of meeting her handsome Rozzo, who alone of all the Sreso vichs could outpitch hay with her. It was here for the first time that she learned of Rozzo’s misfortune, his one-eyed condition and his pock-marked countenance. Now Miss Luce , though she could pitch hay, has an eye for the .-esthetic and poetic in nature, and the idea of .marrying a one eyed lover with a face like a porous plaster did not strike her as a particularly agree able prospect. It was then Matteo Roco vich came calling upon her cousin. Mat teo was no unfledged chicken in matrimony. It is scarcely a twelvemonth sinoe he had laid his last wife to rest. But the fresh young Austrian attracted him. Friends assisted his suit. He was represented to be wallowing in wealth. The one-eyed, disfigured condition of Rozzo was contrasted with the double-eyed, smoother skinned Matteo. Luce was but a woman. The temptations of the two-eyed Matteo were too strong, and after an acquaintance of ten days she became the vanquished of her double-eyed lover, and to make the matter sure, on Thursday Matteo proceeded to the county clerk’s office and took out a license to marry Miss Luce. The marriage was set for to-day. But on Thursday, as stated, Rozzo ar rived from Oregon to claim his bride. There was trouble. Luce charged him with gross deception upon the eye quostiou, and finally told him that she was to marry Matteo. He called on Matteo, and it is re ported that there was trouble. However, according to Matteo’s tale, Rozzo cooled down ana declared that if Matteo would re fund to him the $l5O he had expended in bringing the girl out here he could have her with his good will. Matteo declin ed the proffer. The next day Luce had disap peared. Report had it that Rozzo had em ployed live strong-limbed slaves from San Fraucisco, who had gone with him to Miss Vojvodich’s house, taken her forcibly thencefrom, and taken her to Oregon with him. However that may be, on the same day Mr. Rocovich received a note by a boy from Miss Nojvodich stating that she had gone to San Francisco to hide from her one-eyed lover, and that if Matteo wished to see her he would find her at 712 Green street. She said she would return as soon as possible and use his marriage license. So the matter stands. Sresuvich has dis appeared. Some say he has returned to Oregon. Others declare that he is in hid ing. Mr. Rocovich, interviewed last evening, was inclined to be generous, but ho was not quite sure of success. “If I marry her,” he said, "I don’t mind giving the other fellow $75, say; but I won’t give him $l5O. If she marries him I will sue her for breach of promise.” Time will tell. Meanwhile cupid laughs. PISTOL SHOOTING. Improvement in the Revolver—Novel Methods of Shooting:. From the Exam iner. During the last two years a gi oat advance has boon made in fine shooting with the re. volver, and interest in the emusemont has been awakened in nearly all of the large cities of the country. Makers of pistols and ammunition have responded to the demand for more accurate work, and several new models of revolvers have been produced within a year. Finer sights, careful cham bering and smoother lock mechanism are the principal improvements. In the ordinary cheap revolver the trig gor-pull is heavy and unewen, and often there is a drag or creep at the end of the pull, which disturbs a tine aim and makes the exact instant of discharge an uncertain quantity. A hair-trigger is not requisite for fine shooting, but tho trigger-pull must be smooth and the release quick and sharp. Having procured a perfect weapon, the shooter must look to his ammunition, which is of equal importance. Factory pistol cartridges are *ext to good for notuing, because they are loaded without any regard for proportion of powder and lead. The short 22 and short 38-calibers are about right, but the other sizes are badly loaded and mako a pistol kick more than is neces sary. Gunmakers and marksmen thought for many years that the way to secure accuracy in rifled arms was to make the grooves very deep and use a ball large enough to fill the grooves. Believing in this theory, pistol makers chambered their cylinders larger than the barrels, and ammunition-makers provided bullets .41 of an inch in diameter for barrels only .40 in bore. English mak ers used even larger bullets, and the British service revolver to-day is about as unscien tific and bungling a weapon as could be de vised. A heavy charge of powder is re quired to force the ball through tho barrel, and the consequences are waste of powder and great recoil. The bullet is smashed out of shape before it leaves the barrel, and its flight is therefore inaccurate. A serious of caretul experiments proved that the best results could be obtained by us ing barrels in which the rifling is scarcely perceptible to the eye and bullets which can be pushed easily through tbe barrel with a stick, fitting just tigntly enough to be slightly marked by the rifling. From seven to ten grains of Une, quick burning powder are enough for shooting up to thirty yards. A round bullet driven by such a charge will cut a clean, sharply denned hole in a paper target. Some gun-fighters use the thumb only in cocking and tiring They either tie the trig ger tiack to the guard, so as throw it out of connection witli tne hammer, or remove it entirely. They file down the roughened cap of the hammer and make it smooth, so that it will slip readily from under tbe thumb. In firing they pull the hummer back and let it slip when they have taken aim. Wild Bill bad his two guns fixed that way, and he often would sit with one in each hand, unloaded, and play a tattoo with the hammers or koop time to u waltz. The best way to take aim with a pistol is to fix the gaze upon the mark and bring the weapon up till the sights come in line. In that way no obstruction comes between tho eye and the target. In bringing the pistol down to the level of tbe eyo rrom above the shoulder, the arm, hand and weapon como successfully between tho eye and the mark, and the aim must be corrected after all three have passed below the lino of sight. Yet some good marksmen always shoot the lat ter style. They throw the weapon back over the shoulder to cock, and bring it for ward and downward with something like the action of throwing a stone ANOTHER ROYAL MARRIAGE. A Proposed Union Tbat is Causing No Small Flutter. From the New York World. Pams, July 30.—Another royal marriage ie on the tapis and is causing no small flutter in the courts and chancelleries of the continent. This is the union of the Grand Duke Nicholas, crarowltz of Russia, with the Princess Sophia-Dorothea, sister of the German emperor. The marriage has been contemplated for some time past, but there wore many diplomatic difficulties to be encountered. It was known that the liusso-German matrimonial union would be looked on with disfavor in Vienna. It w< uld be regarde 1 there as a blow directed at the triple alli ance, on which tho present hope of peace dopends. It has been remarked tbat on the present occasion the prqposal came from tho feminine side. It was the Ilohensol lerns that took the initiative in tho ntfair, and it was the German chancellor who first announced the project. W hat the object of Bismarck is in bringing about the project si marriage is widoly discussed. It is oon -M --orod from every point of view, except lrow THE MORNING NEWS: SAT DR DAY, AUGUST 4. 1888. that of the mutual affection of the persons most interested In the matter —the czaro witz and the princess themselves. The grand duke is 80 years of age, and is of tall and commanding' physique, like most of the princes of the Romanoff family. His features are handsome and his manner is dignified and grave. He has been educated with great care, and in the true imperial style has been taught that the first requisite of a man born to command is to know how to obey. He speaks with elegance all the principal European languages, and he ex cels in outdoor sports and athletic exercises. He is, by virtue of his position of czaro witz, Ataman of the Cossack troops, and on all occasions he wears the Cossack uniform. Princess Sophie is two years younger than the grand duke, having been born June 14, 1872. She is not regarded as being exactly pretty, but she is said to be singalarly at tractive in manner. She was the favorite daughter of the late Emperor Frederick, aud being much petted, was the enfant ter rible of the family. She resembles her father in feature, but inherits her mother’s disposition and manner. Since her sail ex perience at San Rome, however, she has grown quite grave and sedate. She accom panied her father thither a joyous child, but returned changed and matured with suffering and sorrow. Her mother, the ex- Empress Victoria, has had no part, it is averred, in the manipulation of the con templated alliance. A mother rather than an empress, she has always consulted the wishes of her daughters in such mat ters rather than the exigencies of state. This was amply evidenced some tqno ago in regard to the proposed marriage of Prince Alexander of Battenberg ami the Princess Victoria. But Emperor William 11. is kiug of hit family as well as king of Prussia, and he is determined to impose his sovereign will on all around him according to the dic tates of the chancellor, and to marry off his sisters as he pleases, not as they please. If the union of the ozarowitz and the Princess Sophia shall ta. y place, it will not be diffi cult to understand the violent opposition offered by Prince Bismareic to the Victoria- Battenberg pitirriaga. If the eldest daugh ter of the family had been given to the re fractory princeling, so cordially hated by the czar, Bismarck could not, with pro priety, offer the younger sister to the heir apparent of all the Russias.

CLOTHING. THE TRADE. THE coming season promises to be a pros perous one, notwithstanding it being a campaign year and universally supposed to bo a baa one for business. It may or may not be so, but there is one thing we do know, and that is, the season now quickly passing has been more than good with us, ana we owe it entirely to the manner of con ducting our business. We ao not trouble ourselves as to the ques tion of free trade or protection. We leave that for wiser heads than ours. But we have a little platform of our own, in which vou will find one PET PLANK which we never change, and that is THOUGHTFULNESS aud CONSIDER ATION for the interest our customers and BIG BAR GAINS for LITTLE MONEY. And how do wo accomplish it? you naturally ask. Our answer is this. In the first place, our method of con ducting business is such that we cannot help but succeed in our efforts to please and beueflt our customers. In the second place, the pleas* ure to each and every customer to b now that they are not paying ONE PENNY more for the same article than any one else and are doing busiuess with a strictly one price house, who are compelled to mark their goods as low as they can be legitimately sold to pro tect themselves from such competitors that have two or three prii es. Our buyer is now North, where he has been the past two weeks supervising the manufact uring of our fall stock,which will soon commence to roll in, and also sending us out by every steamer such bargains of seasonable goods which lie comes across, to which we would ask a comparison of WORKMANSHIP and PRICES.
