AN ARCHDUKE'S LOVE. ? ^ffilR 4taken by hantt, of Austria, Tho Bad Ending or a Noblo Man and 04? 1 tilted Husband. It seems at length pretty definitely settled that death by shipwreck has overtaken Cap? tain Johann Oi th and Iiis wife, of the Austrian iron merchant sailing rdiip Santa Mar? garetha. Johann ?rth is tie.- name the .1 o k>^$M?&Sf when ho no ' ? *v ' v"-^" no u need bis . '. 't- princely rank to become a iner "joifAKrf oil I'll." chant sailor. As nn Archduko, says tho New York Pre c, this young mau felt that he was a fail? ure. Horn in the purple, the con of Leopold. Grand Duke of Tuscany, and the Grand Duchess Maria Antonia, ho passed bis boyhood and youth in all the luxury and splendid dissipation of tho imperial and highest aristocratic circles of Austria. A scion of the younger gen? eration of the llnpsburgs und n Lieu? tenant Field Marshal of the Austrian army, tho career that opened before him was ono of opulence und military distinction. But tho Archduke wearied of it. all. lie cared little for the art ol soldiering. His inclination ran to tho high seas instead. He detested the the pomp and ceremony of the gorgeous court of Vienna und ho had a perfect passion for the science of navigation. To crown all he fell In love. It was with a Viennese dancing girl, but with most unprincely manhood Archduke Johann desired to make her, not his mistress, lr.it his wife. In spite of tho bitt er opposition of the Imperial Fam? ily he insisted on laying down all bis honors and descending into plebeian ism, lie resigned his Field Marshal ship, be gave up bis proud Archducal title and he passed an examination which satisfactorily proved his ability to do the work of a sea captain. Then in tho Santa Margaretha, an iron three muster of 2,001) tons that he had bt tight, the young merchant captain sailed for London. In the llritish capital his Vi lennese sweetheart met him, and (hey jworc made man and wife. The Santa Margaretha then set sail for itucnos Ay r es. [?Vom the Argentine city Captain Orth sailed for Valparaiso about the middle of lust July. Since that time nothing punitive has been known of him or his ship or of t lie wife who was with him. It is as if tho hungry sea had swallowed them up. A shuttered wreck seen afloat near ("ape Horn is supposed to have been the missing Austrian merchant? man. The length of time since the ves? sel left Hucnoa Ayrcs renders it certain in the opinion of maritime experts that she has been wrecked and those ou board of her drowned. The whole affair is so tragic and strange that it has aroused widespread attention and comment. "All tho world loves a lover," and thousands of people in Europe and America have read with eager interest the story of the Archduke Johanu's de? votion to Ids plebeian sweetheart. That i death should so soon have come to the | pair scorns pitiful. The entire episode goon to prove that there is plenty oi chivalry nod romance in this prosaic old world yet. A CALIFORNIA CAHT. t*I>otCOll WllOOlS UllllHOWII oil till I'utiftc o> ist tu 1841. At this time ihere was not in Califor? nia any vehicle except a rudo Califor? nia cart; tho wheels were without tires, and wero made by foiling an oak troe and hewing it down till it made a solid wheel nearly a foot, thick on I lie rim and a little larger where the axlo went through. The bole for the axle would bo ej,_rht, or iiino inches in diameter, but a few years' use would increase it to a foot. To make tho hole, an auger, gouge orohiscl was sometimes used, but the principal tool was an axe. A small tree required but little bowing and shaping to answer for an axle. These carts wero always drawn by oxon, the yoke being lashed with rawhide to the horns. To lubricate the nxlCS they used soap (that is one thing tho Mexicans could make), carrying along for tho purpose a bi<j pail of thick soapsuds which was con? stantly put in the box or bole; but you could generally tell when a California cart was coming half a tulle away by the squeaking. I have seen the families of the wealthiest people go long distances at. the tat ? of thirty miles or mot e a day, visiting in ono of thoso clumsy tivo A"> mwA /,,. fit wheeled vehicles. They bad a little framework around it made of round stick, and a bullock hide was put in fot floorer bottom. Sometimes the bettet class would have a little calico for cur? tains and oovor. There was no s.tch thing as a Bpokcd wheel in usQ then.? General llidwoll, in Century. Carbolia Acid for Corns. Dr. Salcmi has taken advantage oi tho oseliarotic property of carbolic acid to remove corns which several othet remedies had failed to dislodge, lie gives the following directions: Aftoi bathing the feet in soapy water, dry the affected part and .surround the corn with a layer of collodion. Melt tee carbolic crystals by a gentle heat ar?0 apply a thick layer over the softenec surface of the corn, taking care not to touch the surrounding flesh. After e few minutes apply to the layer of a piece of wadding or blotting paper t? ab orb the excess of the ncid. Repeated at intervals of three or four days, tint* simple remedy is stated to effect a 5om pleto cure. Fine residence and business property, in any part of Roanoke, call on or address L. L.
