A RHINE LEGEM).
it was years ago mid in Germany,
where, especially at tlint day, n mighty
lino was drawn Iwtwoontho rieh und pour,
that in a certain village beside the It hi no
lived two who made il-.o old. old story
now for themselves und nlmost bei loved,
98 lovers will, that they were the first who
had over loved each oilier?Gretclien ami
Carl, both peasants' children, ami both as
poor, in ovorything bill youth and health
and beauty, as any twain could he.
But for all this tiny would willingly
havo united their fortunes, or their lack of
fortunes, but for the wise old folk, who
know so much more nbout the world than
young ones can and quite forget how much
better a teilten feast, with love at the
board, is to youth than all the dainty
viands that can be spreadpit silver and set
forth on dnmask if the littlo god is away.
Tho old folk set themselves to opposo tho
match stoutly, on the ground that Carl
would never earn his salt and thai Grotch?
en, being very pretty, might makon bctti r
mntob. Imhvd tho baron, whose castle
stoiiel not far oil, and who was not so old
ns ho might have been and was rolling in
gold, would, as all kllOW, have been only
too happy to stoop as low as the peasant's
cottage, and have Grctchon for Ids bride.
But tho girl found no charm in his title
or his wealth or bis person to lead her to
forget Carl, and when lie left her to Feck
his fortune, that be might share it, when
found, with her, she gave him a lock of
her golden hair and promised that she
never would forget him.
Grotoheu sang and dnnced no more. She
changed sadly in face mid heart, but the
Baron Clnusson only thought her more
lovely and more like a lady with bor i nie
cla cks and downcast eyes and haunted the
cot (ago as much as ever.
Carl, ever so far away, footsore and sad,
hut making sure of a fortune ahead of
him, and happy just as oven his stout logs
began to fall him in Hireling with n good
lured boatman, who took him on board
and bade him be at ease until he reached
tin ond of his journey. So Carl lounged
upon tho dock of tho littlo craft with its
load of cheeses, and looking over into the
water thought of Gretclien, never guessing
that his sighs had brought to the.surface a
beautiful mermaid, who no si.oner sot eyes
upon Carl than she fell madly in love with
him and began forthwith to simr and piny
upon her lyre and comb her hair and uso
all her mermaid arts to lure the i cusnni
to her. Sho Uoatcd with him to tho mouth
of Tho Hague, where, Iinding no avenue to
fortune in any other direction, poor Carl
shipped on board a vessel hound for a two
years' voyago and hired a man who was
nbont to travel down into Hesse Darm?
stadt, to take the news to his sweetheart.
"And tell her," said Carl, "thai T shall
think of her by day and by night and shnll
return to claim her for my own when this
voyago is over."
The man promised and tho mermaid re?
joiced, for Carl was to bo within her reach
for two long years. Hut this was no!
enough for her, for she was n very wily
mermaid. Ono moonlight night she saw
the messenger walking on the shore ami
called to him.
He was an ugly looking follow, with a
red nose, with whom mermaids were not
apt to fall in love, so he had novcv S.i
one. And when he saw her with her pearly
skin and sapphire eyes ami floating hair,
her bands lying upon tbo golden strings
of her lyre, all ringed with pearls, and
pearls dripping from the lobes of her pure
ears and Wound about her nock, and saw
her sfliilo and felt her breath, and heard
her voice, ho grew bewildered. First sho
made love to him; then she bade him do
something to provo that he cared for her.
It was such a littlo thing?only to ?.'nun
board tho vessel and lako Carl unawares
and push him over. After that lie would
find her waiting for him by the mouth of
Sho had not tbo slightest Intention-of
keeping her vow, but the man believed her
and went on board the vessel and gave a
form leaning over the bulwarks a push
that sent it down into the wntor, but in
his toccitomcnt he nimlo a mistake and
only drowned a young sailor from Han?
over, instead of tossing Carl into the mer?
maid's arms. Then, terrified by tho cry
the man gave, he lied, not wailing to keep
his appointment with the innrmaid, hut
making the best of his way to Hesse
Then, being; a good Catholic, be ho
1 bought him- ?tor be had no idea of his
mistake?that the drowned Carl would
have no masses said for hint unless his
kindred knew of hi- demise, and so went
down to the cottage, when- Grctohun sal
spanning. There he inquired if any then
knew one Carl Stover. Then there was a
little cry and the wheel stopped.
"I bring news of him, "said tho man,
"bnd news. I knewhhn in Holland. He
had shipped for n two years' voyage, but
before the vessel started lie was drowned.
I saw him fall overboard. God rest, his
soul!" Then he wem away, inwardly
cursing himself ami the mermaid, who,
in very excellent spirit.-., was following
over the sea the vessel on which Carl
sailed, thinking of nothing but home and

Just nt tins Mino Cnrl, with his two
years' pny in his wallet and some hard

ship's dock upon dry land and hurried as
host ho might toward Hesse Darmstadt to

was n fear that crossed his mind, but that
sho might bo married never occurred to
him. Ho had sent hor information of his
Intentions. Ho had tolled, drenched by
rain, beaten by wind, pelted by hail, in
danger of shipwreck and assailed by tho
fever laden breezes of southern lands, to
win tho little pittance which seemed so
great n sum to hint. Ho bad done it for
tho sake of her love. Ho boated it and
footed it homeward in an ecstasy of yearn?
ing, and tho mermaid, who bad followed
tho vessel over die ocean, waited for it. at
foreign ports and followed it back agnin,
made her way along the Rhino.
The baron's cnstlo hung over tho Rhine,
and the nursery wherein tho baroness
watched over her baby looked out upon
the water. It was under I his w indow
that the mermaid stopped, hoi* IktsSy halt
all tangled, her eyelids heavy, her lute un?

cottage, whore Grotchcil's grandmother
dwelt, and rushed In and cried, for ho
was so brown and so long bearded that
tho\ did not know him:
"I am Carl Steyor, conic back to marry

Hut the old granddame answered:
"You Ciin'l be Carl, for he is drowned
and has had masses said for him. Hut oven

"Whore is she:" gasped Carl. "I'll
believe no one but her." <
"Slic> is when- she ought to be, at tho
cnstlo," said the old woman. "But you'd

Perhaps Carl was mad. for ho went, Ho
put asido porter and maid and page and

him. forgot everything else and rushed to

and they wupl. But soon he put her oir
and asked her.
"I though! you dead," sho said.
Then great horror came upon her.
"Why did you come'" sho. cried. "I
am a wife. I had learned to lovo my hus?
band. Now there will be only you again."
And amid these words they hoard a clatter
of horse's hoofs ami a voice below bidding
the servant kiij if it were true that. Carl
Stoyer really were closeted with their mis?
tress?tho baron's voice.
"See!" cried GrctcllOU. "Scol He is

vailed so long. They are trimmed with
embroidery, tucks and lace as in ancient
days, or aro hemstitched and aro worn
under white or light gowns. Washable
skirts und underwear are always in tho
most refined taste. Although garments
made of china silk and surah aro said to
bo washable, their appearance is always
ruined by soap and water, for if they are
tinted they fade, while if they are white
they turn yellow. Collars and cuffs of va?
rious styles are also fashiounblo, and noth?
ing is a neater or mure appropriate finish
to tailor giiwns tban bands of snowy linen.

What's the Use of Waiting ?
To BALL & MAY, Dr.
Terms _ GROCERS
"They " say "all things como to him who watts," but wo havo not
been waiting, und wo don't proposo to wait. Wo KNOW our prices
uro right, our work A-l, nnd if you don't
bring us work wo will como after it, in ono
way or nnothor, cither by bringing to your
notieo our prices, facilities and quality of
execution, or personal interviews. "Wo aro
not grumbling; fur from it. We've had our
share ; we aro still getting our share. But wo
havo placed at your disposal a modern, nnd
almost ideal, printing establishment, with
such facilities as to command admiration from all with whom wo
have business intercourse. Wo aro not waiting ; haven't time to wait.
An Up-to-Date Printing Office.
One of the vows the writer made when he was "devil" in a
country printing office was, in effect, that if ho over owned or man?
aged a printing establishment, it would bo kept clean, at least by
comparison. At that time ho hardly fell tbe force of the vow, for bo
has learned after years of experience! that it is necessary immediately
after one "going over" to start at tho beginning and go over it all
again. It never ends?just like a housekeeper's duties?but not liko
the boy who eocs no uso in washing bis face because it will got
soiled again. But, a clean printing establishment is just as necessary
for the proper execution of work in our line as tight and bent and
power. And the vow has been kept. Come and see.
One of tho things which has contributed largely to tho success of
our establishment is tho systematic working "togothbr" of all our
forces in all departments. This has reduced
to a minimum tho 'Most motion" which is
usually to bo found in huge industries. If
R minute can be saved hero, another there,
it is done?an hour is gained?thus we take
care of the fleeting moments. Five minutes
wasted daily by "'ach of our employes would mean the interest on
$10,000 a year. In these days of close margins each moment of
time must be productive.
We Do Not Believe
There is another city in the State which sends such a small propor?
tion of its orders for printing arid blank books away to our Northern
friends as Roanoke. All honor to our bankers and business men;
that is?most nil of it Wo must reserve a little, as this is our

or type. It is the combination that tells. "We do not mean to bo
egotistical at all; but combining these things to bring forth a harmo?
nious result bus been our study?and wo do claim to know our
business right thoroughly.
In Our Press-Room
Can he seen the rapid, diminutive and monster cylinder presses,
including the famous "Promise Keeper," turning out thousands upon
thousands of sheets every day. Our largest and best paper cutting
machine, the automatic cutting knifo sharp?
ener, and tabloting appurtenances aro on
this floor. The wonderful and powerful
electric motor, which propels tbo machines
on all three floors, is also on this floor. Over
in ono corner, hardly noticeable, is kept in
readiness, as a supplementary power, an
improved Clus Engine, to be attached at
momentary notice, in case of accident to the
electric motor, or for other causes. This precludes the possibility of
a "hole" on tho power question.

Attorneys at Law,
P. O. Bo? J?. Roir.oke, Vj.
On the Second Floor
A long row of small presses, used for cards, envelopes, statemonts,
note beads, tickets and small work. Here, also, is probably the most
wonderful piece of mechanism in our establishment?tbo Railroad
Ticket Printing Machine. Think of it tbo next time you purchase
your ticket. Secured behind iron burs and double locks, it at once
suggests government bonds, with all these safeguards.
On this floor is tbo type-setting department, whero expert minds and
lingers think and act rapidly and correctly, interpreting at times hand?
writing that would make Horace Greeley turn green with envy.
Large, extra large fonts of typo permit tho handling of very largo
orders in a most satisfactory and expeditious manner. Our force in
this department can set up about as many pages in a day as a man
can read. A plentiful supply of^Algebraical, Astronomical, Geometri?
cal signs and characters, accento letters, and "odd sorts" enable us
to handle difficult and intricate work in special lines.
On the Top Floor
Is our Blank Book Manufactory, ruling machines, including ono
which is probably the largest south of Philadelphia; our various wire
stitchers, which will tako wire from a spool, cut it tho proper length,
shape it, and drive through a book three-fourths of inch thick, or
one not so thick, 1'20 a minute; then our paging and numbering
machines, board and paper cutters, book presses, which exert a
pressure of twenty tons or more, perforating, punching and eyeleting
machines, and tbe engraving department?which latter is an innova?
tion for this section.
And Our Stock-Room!
If some of our friends who usually buy a quire or so of paper at a
time, could look in upon this department, they would not cease won?
dering for days. We do not exaggerate a particle when we say you
can see A TON OF A KIND; yes, TEN TONS OF A KIND.
You say: "What, ten tons of one kind of paper in a town liko
