An old Icelandic romance tells us that
there is a rock in Iceland where people who
were tick or otherwise wretched used to be
take themselves, and thence leap down to cer
tain death, and as certain a reception Into
the halls of Joy prepared for the brave, add
ing: "It is useless, therefore, to give our
selves up to groans and complaints or to put
our relatives to needless expeuse, since we
can easily follow the example of our fathers,
who have gone by the way of this rock." In
Sweden there are several of those rooks, three
of which hear the name of Valhalla, the war
rior's heaven, because they were used as a
sort of a vestibule to that glorious ball of
One of those rocks, called Stnfva Hall, used
to be the scene of remarkable annual festi
vals. A nutnlier of people, after singing and
feasting, and entering fully Into the dancing
and general merriment, would throw them
selves from the cliff into the lake below, in
the same manner as the classic writers tell us
that the Scythians and Hypoboreans used to
da But if none of these reliefs were at hand,
and a natural death was unavoidable, as. was
frequently the case after Christianity hnd
put an end to these pract ices, heroes generally
consoled themselves by putting on their com
plete armor, thus meeting their end fully
equipped for battle, as a sort of protest against
the ignominious death forced upon them
against their will
THE OOCSR OF OLADVKSS.
The reward of all this valor awaits the
warrior in the dwelling of Odin and Glad
sheim (house of gladness), where in the glit
tering hall, Valhalla, Allfatlier gathers the
souls of all who died the death of heroes.
Over the field of battlo hover the Valkyries,
maids of Odin, who chonso the champions to
be honored by death, and conduct them to
this abode of perpetual joy. llere the ceiling,
splendid with shields, rests on columns of
spears, while over the benches hang glisten
ing coats of mail. This dwelling stands in
the shining grove of Glnser, where every leaf
Is of pure red gold That is why gold is
sometimes called G laser's leaves.
On the roof of Valhalla, feeding on the
leaves of the tree Lerad (tho protector),
stands a goat which yields on abundance of
mead for gods and heroes; and feeding from
the same troe is the stag Eikthyrner (knotty
horned), from whose antlers drips so much
water that it fills thirty-six rivers, twolve of
which water the celestial plains; twelve the
abodes of men and twelve the chill regions of
Kiflheim, where reigns Ilela or Ilel, who takes
charge of all souls not having made their
exit from the body by the prescriliod route.
In Valhalla swords serve to warn the inhabi
tants, and the whole palace Is resplendent
The amusements of the blest are quite in
accord with the viows they entertained in
life, fa we are told thn every day, as soon
as they are dressed, they ride out to the field
of battle and there cut each other to pieces
until near meal time, when, presto 1 they put
their various fragments together again in
proper order, like so many animated puzzle
cards, don thoir armor, mount their steeds
and prance amicably back to Valhalla, in
time for dinner. There they are served at
table by the Valkyries, the same fair ones
who, hovering over the earthly field of fray.
first choose them to enter this Paradise of the
brave. As fast as the dishes are emptied
these maidens fill them again with meat or
with mead, for neither thoood nor the drink
ever gives out.
But to say, as some writers do, that they
drtnk from the skulls of thoir enemies is
neither truth nor reason; for their enemies,
if they died honorablv, are in Valhalla, and
of course using their skulls for normal pur
poses.'' If they died ingloriously, they are
wearing all their bones in Niflheiin. The lit
eral translation of King Ragnar Lodbrok's
dying utterance, which has caused the curi
ous mistake, is "Soon shall we drink ale 'out
of the curved branches of the skull, " refer
ring, no doubt, to the horns of animals,
which were the common drinking cups of the
Now, I am afraid that literal translation
has let out a fact dangerous to the projects
of any poet lying in wait for on illustration.
I have not only robbed him of a pet horror
in depriving him of the use of the traditional
gruesome beaker, but have mentioned ale as
the drink of gods and heroes! Nevertheless,
like little George, I cannot tell a lie, and ale
is the word the veritable ''wine of barley"
described of old by Aristotle, Theophrastus,
Herodotus et ol, and perpetuated to this day
under the musical names of London porter,
German lager, and various other names
which will be readily recalled by those ac
quainted with the mundane article. Let the
fact be what comfort it may to those who
love it not wisely but too well that it is the
delight of such a numerous and brilliant ce
BOILED PORE AXD BEER.
Another shock which truth compels me to
inflict tender literary nerves, turning the
ruminator into the ruminant, so to speak, is
the statement that the meat of the Valhallians
is pork I Think of it boiled pork washed
dawn with beer 1 Facts are stubborn things
what shall the poet do with this one? Nec
tar and ambrosia ore so much better because,
perhaps, you do not know whut they are!
One writer of repute makes the pork and
beer much easier to swallow by explaining
that the words from which they ore derived
signify "air, fire and water" (which may be
freely translated air and firewater if you de
sire), with "nothing earthly in them," and
transformed by Asgordian alchemy into
"the purest and most delicate breath of the
air" less nutrious, no doubt, than the pork
and beer, but then more poetic, too, aud we

for the heroes, has, like each of his devourees.
the happy propensity to put himself together
again as fast as he is cut to pieces, so that at
the close of the battle every day they find
him on the table ready for business.
Valhalla, dulightful though you perceive it
to be, is not, however, the ultimate paradise
of the brave; for we are told that the abode
of the Aaus shall not endure forever, but that

Washington, D. C, May 20. Cor
poral Tanner is getting along swimmingly
in bis avowed purpose of turning the
treasury surplus into the pockets of the
ex-soldiers of the country. 8o well is he
progressing that the pension appropria
tion for the fiscal year ending June SO,
is already exhausted, notwithstanding its
immense amount $81,750,000. The
payments made by the treasury depart
ment for pensions for one week ending
last Saturday, amounted to the enormous
sum of $11,880,000. Where this will
end no man can say, but unless I am
very much mistaken this pension ques
tion will raise a big rumpus in this coun
try before long; it may be started in the
bouse at the next session or congress, or
it may be postponed for a while longer.

purpose of protesting against the appoint

city as one of the commissioners of the
District of Columbia and the day after

there is at least one democratic senator
ready to join .the "combine" of republi

The administration has taken action in
the matter of the alleged frauds by the
United States marshals and their depu

and the republican exonerated. How's
that for partizanship?

lowed to and do come into Moline with
out such a thing as a license being men
tioned to them, but they arrest and fine

Today Molina butchers and grocery men
were warned out by the policemen down
there. Considering the fact that Edge
wood park and all the eastern end of
Rock Island is settled for the most part by
people wno work and gain their living in
Moline, it looks decidedly piggish on the
part of Rock Island not to allow them
to deal with whom they please, especially
when Rock Islanders are atlowed to come
op here with their goods. The Moline
city council has been taking what it con
sidered the legal position in this matter
for some years past, and allowing Rock
isiana to enforce against our merchants
what is considered an illegal ordinance.

now in order. We can adopt and enforce
an illegal ordinance as well as Rock Isl
