A Tretty l.ittlo Sheet of 'Water, nnd
That In All.
A few days after leaving Venice. I
found myself on the shores, or bunks
I hardly know which is the correct
term of Lake Conio, writes a corres
pondent of The San Francisco Chroni
cle, It is a very pretty t-heet of water,
but there aro ninny lakes in America
quite as beautiful if le.-s historically in
teresUn;; and less favored as to climate.
Travelers stopping at Milan do not al
ways seem to bo aware that they aro
so near to Lake Conio, ami consequent
ly fail to visit it, which is an error. Ry
getting up at an unjournalistic hour in
the morning, and taking a circular tick
et, one can go to Conio, which occupies
about an hour. Hero ho takes a steam
erit is quite unnecessary to say it lit
tle steamer, since big ones do not exist
in Europe and is conveyed to Rellagio,
where he has two or three hours for ob
servation. Then ho takes another
steamer equally small, and without go
ing to Colieo, at the further end, a
name with acholeraie sound he turns
down the other arm, and at Lecco
boards a train which bring him buck to
Milan by dinner-time. It is time
enough to see everything of special in
terest, unless he desires to take up his
abode in this quiet retreat, where ho
can have an occasional whift' of tho
mountain air, even in midsummer, and
a sight of tho snows that forever whit
en the higher peaks of the Alps. It
may interest tho classical scholar to bo
reminded that tl.o Romans lived and
cultivated the soil about Lake Conio,
and that a noble Roman of distinction,
who might have been Seneca if ho was
not another, had a villa on its shores.
Villa is a better term here than palace,
the grandiloquent word used by Rulwer
in his inflated play, "Tlio Lady of Ly
ons." Much of tho lake is so narrow that,
as the steamer ripples in quiet waters,
you can almost throw a stone on to
cither bank, and tho visitor who re
members Claude and Pauline scans at
tentively the liltlo valleys and the steep
hillsides that seem to disappear in the
clouds, if pcrehanco ho may discover a
palaco like that which tho deceitful
lover described in such glowing terms
to his enraptured inamorata. He re
marks nothing that corresponds to tho
rhetorical architectural details of Rul
wer. There arc some very pretty residences
along the banks, nestling in valleys,
half hidden by foliage, but none that
can bo called, with any propriety of
speech a palace. Towns and villages
abound along the entire length of the
lake, which is thirty-two miles, though
it often seems hardly possible for them
to cling to tho steep hillsides, and they
are all of the Italian type, with some
variations introduced by foreign resi
dents. Conio lias t-'i'.OJO inhabitants,
Ccrnobbi 720, Rellagio 2.7-1.'), Menaggio
1,270, Colieo a, 22!), Lecco 7,010. Tho
other towns and villages are generally
smaller. The vine is cultivated on the
hillsides, and a very good wine is made
nt Rellagio, whose reputation, however,
hardly transcends tho horizon of tho
lake. The olive, which irrows in a
gnarled and contracted fashion, sinco
it finds the climate M)inovh:it inhospit
able, brightens the steep slopes with
its bright green foliage. Tho lake has
a strange peculiarity. Having no sutll-
cient outlet, it is subject to inundations
whenever unusual rains aro precipitat
ed on its capacious watershed and run
oft" quickly into iL Ono of these, about
a year ago, threatened to do serious
damage to Conio.
riio poet have been renlly, or havo
professed to be, singularly inspired by
the murvolous beauties of Lake Co mo.
I happened to remember some lines of
a pretty, but rather meaningless poem,
who.so burden was the following
I met my love iiuiong: the low
Rose purlieus by Ilellugio.
Of course the poet did nothing of tho
sort, the pretended meeting being nil
in his mind's eye, but thu lines perplex
ed mo because I could not really toll
whether tho place where ho had his
alleged felicity was Rellagio, or Monag
gio, thoro being so many "ggios and
eggios in Italy that tho mind gets quite
perplexed in trying to disontanglo
hem. Thoro was certainly nothing in
Rellagio that could be called a rose
garden in tho sense in which the Per
sian poets used the term, nor even as u
California reared in a land of rosos,
would understand it, and I could not
conceive that Menaggio, which I could
see a mllo or so oft' on tho other side,
had any more luxurious floral acces
sories. Gardens there were, but they
wero in uo wise remarkable, and the
roses or rose bushes in them wero not
Abundant. It is thus that the poets be
guile the people with their vain imagin
ings! Rulwer had seen a great many
palaces beforo ho wrote, but R is un
certain that ho had then seen Lake
Conio, while the other rhymester may
have seen tho lake, but probably came
from a land where one rose made a
summer, and few in its gardens scemod
Lake Como is in its way quiet and
beautiful. It is really a place of retire
ment and repose, where tho nativo life
is dull and silent, ami foreigners come
rather to add to tho quiet than to dis
turb it. Tho passage of tho steamer is
a little feature of activity in the land
scape. Its landing at tlio wharves of the
tranquil villages, with the bustle of ar
rival and departure, are the unimport
ant events which give the day all that
it has of healthy excitement. In winter
its airs mu-t be chilling and its towns
and villages absolutely cold and dead.
In summer its attractions aro all seen
at their best, and for itself, as well as
for its associations, no tourist should
ever pass so near as Milan without giv
ing her a visit.
The Faith Cure is very old. It has
appeared in different forms sinco thoro
is nny record of tho human race. It
requires a man of an almost dogged
faith to bo cured by it, though. Tlio
formula- is simple: Only have enough
faith and you can bo cured of any hu
man ill. If you aro not cured it is
because you haven't enough faith.
One of the most usual forms of faith
cure is by tho laying on of hands. You
havo rheumatism in tlio shoulder. You
visit a doctor who practices that sys
tem. Ho lays his hands on tho alllioted
part, you feel better or think you do,
and then ho lays ids hands on your
pocket book for all you've got. If
your faith begins to waver after this
experience, the pains will probably re
turn, but your money won't. You
must not give up faith, whatover clso
Healing mediums can bo found every
where. How well they aro healed de
pends on how many fools they can en
tice into their not. Tlioy call thonisolves
healers, and practico all over the coun

ward "heeler," who practices chiefly at
The first thing a quack docs when ho
opens an ollico for tho practico of tho
faith cure, is to lay in a good stock of
old crutches, canes, splints, &c., which
ho exhibits to the wondering public,
claiming that they havo boon left behind
by his patients who had no furthor uso
tor them after one operation. Men
hobble in on crutches, ho says, who
haven't been able to get about in any
other way for years. Ho makes a few
passes over thorn with his hands, they
exercise tlioir faith, and, presto, tho
lameness is gone. Thoy fling away
their crutches and start for homo on a
Wo interviewed a man once who had
invested a considerable sum of monoy
in the mind cure, whioh doesn't differ
very much from the faith cure. About
tlio same amount pi mind is required
in tho one as in the other.
"Were you cured?" we asked.
"Yes, I was perfectly cured, of my
desire to bo humbugged ngain. I am
lnmo yet, as you see, but I think my
mind is more sprightly and athletic."
Rrigliam Young used to practice the
faith cure. A con tiding Mormon who
had lost a leg in a bravo but ineffectual
struggle with a threshing machino, not
being able to secure a pension at Wash
ington, came to Rrigliam in tho linn bo
lief tlint ho was able to make anothor
leg grow from tho stump, and requested
hirn to do so. Ho desired him to graft
on ono of tho early blooming variety,
so that it would be ready for his spring
plowing. I his proposition put Rrigliam
to his stumps for a moment, but he
was equal to this emergency, as ho had
been for many others, oven whon they
came in the shape of twins.
"I could do it, of course," said Rrig
hnrn, with a coroless wavo of the hand,
"but how awkward you would feel on
tho day of resurrection, getting around
on three logs."

Tho Conway Cabal.
There is no man so high but some
will be found who wMi to pull him
dowu. Washington was no exception
to this rule. His men worshipped him;
the people had confidence in him; tho
otlieera nearet to him, and especially
those who formed a part of his military
family, were warmly attached to him;
but in congress there wero men who
violently opposed him, and there were
certain generals who not only envied
him but were ready to seize any oppor
tunity which misrht offer to bclittlo him
and to place ono of their own number
in his place. The chief men who were
engaged in this business wero Generals
Conway, Milllin, and Gates, and from
tho prominent position taken in the af
fair by the first-named officer, the in
triguo against ashington goes by tho
name of the Conway Cabal.
After it had failed of its purpose by
various roundabout methods; it looked
about in congress and counted the dis
all'ected to see if it would bo pos.sible to
get a majority vote in favor of a motion
to arrest tlio commander-in-chief. So
at least the story runs which, from its
nature, would not bo found in any
record, but was whispered from ono
man to another. The day came when
tho motion was to be tried; the con
spiracy leaked out, and Washington's
friends bestirred themselves. They
needed one more vote. Thoy sent
post-hastu foi ono of their number,
Gouverneur Morris, who was absent in
camp; but they feared they could not
get him in tune. In tlioir extremity,
they went to William Duer, a member
from New York, who was dangerously
ill. Duer sent for his doctor.
"Doctor," ho asked, "can I bo car
ried to Congress?"
"Yes, but at tho risk of your life,"
replied tho physician.
"Do you mean that I should expiro
beforo reaching tho place?'' earnestly
inquired the patient.
"No," camu the answer; "but I
would not answer for your leaving it
"Vory well, sir. You havo done
your duty and I will do mine!" ex
claimed Duer. "Prepare a litter for
mo; if you will not, somebody olse will,
but 1 prefer your aid."
Tho demand was in earnest, and
Duer had already started whon it was
anuouueud that Morris had returned
and that ho would not ba needed. Mor
ris had como direct from tho camp with
tho latest news of what was going on
thore. His voto would make it impos
sible for tlio enemies to carry their
point; tlioir opportunity was lost, and
they never recovered it. Horace E.
