A oonospotidottb of tho New York
Evening Post on iv visit, to Gloucester,
Mn-ss.. heard inun a young lady tho
pathetic story of tho storms ol 1ST!!,
whieh is related as follows:
"I was a child then, but I can dis
tinctly bring to mind tho dreadful
gloom and depression there was all
through the town. 1 thought tho
whole world was under a cloud. Moth
er ctied half tho time, for father was
oil, too. It veenied as if half our ihh
crmen were drowned that season. Sto
ry after story of disaster and loss
kept coining every day. When tho
boats from the Banks camo into tho
harbor that is, those that ever did
come back tho wharves would be
crowded with men and women with
eager, drawn faces waiting to hear. I
will not try to say how nmnyschoon
crs never camo home at all. My moth
er will tell you of every man and every
boat that was lost. It's a, horriblo
Evangeline Romer sat silent a mo
ment, mechanically moving back and
forth in her bauds some gay pebbles
she had picked up. Her face was sot
in such sombre curves that I did not
wish to sneak to hor. Hut sho went
on directlv:
"Cousin Mary had married Matthow
JJruce the year before. Ii,voryuo(iy
tells that she was the eaynst, lightest-
hearted cirl in Gloucester. All her
folks went to tho Hanks her husband,
her father, and her two brothers. I lor
mother was dead lontr before. The
one scene of that time that I can ro
call with most plainness, and that I
could not forcot no matter how long I
lived, is the scene on tho wharf one
afternoon. My father had been ono of
the lucky ones. I lo had como home two
days before. Father and mother both
cried a great deal, audi wondered at
it, and why ho saul, 'It s thoso that
are the least worthy that como home.'
On this particular day tho sun was
very bright, nnd thero was a brisk
wind blowing. Wo all went over in a
boat and hurried on to tho wharf,
where thero was a crowd of people,
for thero were three fishing schooners
in sight and sailing in last. Cousin
Mary Bruce was there, and she oanio
to us. 1 vo heard mother tell a mm
died times what sho said. Sho was
cheerful and hopeful. 'I was born un
der a lucky star,' sho told mother.
'I'm just positivo that my folks tiro
all right, bometlung tells mo 1 snail
see them to-tlay. It seems wicked for
me to be so happy, but I know thoy
are coming.
"Mother said sho shuddered to hear
her. From tho liist schooner that
reached the wharf Skipper Hoyso
came toward our group. Ho was look
ing at Cousin Mary, and his rough
fa co worked and his lips trembled.
Ho acted as it he must tell her some
thing, but as if hu could not,
As ho walked along a great silenco
fell on all tho people about us. Thero
wiii only the sound of tho lapping of
an outgoing tulo on tho posts ot the
wharf, i looked at Cousin Alary. Her
fnco was utterly white, and hor eyes
seemed to uivo into tho oyes ot bl;i;
per Hoyse. The man's eyelids drop
ped. Ho stopped closo to hor, and his
dry lips began to niovo without houihI
Finally ho threw up his hands and
cried out harshly: 'Good God! I can't
do it!' I saw my father step behind
Mary and put his arms about her.but
sho did not know it. Sho was looking
at Mr. Hoyse, who finally said in a
whisper: 'Mary Bruce, they nro all
drowned your husband, your broth
ers and your futher, and wo couldn't
help it.'
"Skipper Hoyse suddenly sat down
on the wharf and covered his facowith
his hands. Mary stood stillly in my
father's arms, looking at Hoyse. All
at oncoshti darted forward and shook
his shoulder. 'Matt isn't dead!' sho
said very softly. 'Hotold mo tho last
thing that ho loved mo so that God
would surely let him como back. You
are lying to me. Mutt will como
Shu faced around on us all. 'Won't
somebody tell ma tho truth?' sho
t-houted, and then sho laughed. Tho
next moment sho would have fallen,
but my father held her. Sho was not
ill. Sho went about her work the next
day, anil has never stopped work since,
it seems to me. Sho put on thoso
straight black clothes hko what you
have seen. Her fnco has looked as
you see it now. You would say
sh was fifty years old. Sho was
barely twenty when this griei camo
to her. I don t think sho caies
for anything. People used to talk
to her about being resigned, and ac
cepting the will of God. Sho listened
to them, but nover made any ro
s))onse. Sho has not been into a church
since tho funeral services that were
held in commemoration of her loss.
Tho minister has argued with her and
prayed over hor, with no apparent ef
fect. Did you notico that small houso
with a big chimney which stands buck
from the road near our houso? That
is her home. Sho lives thero alone,
Slio has neither a dog nor a cat, not a
live thing about tho place. Sometimes
sho 'goes out nursing;' if one can put
up with her gloom, ono can see sho is
a goiitle, careful nurso. Slid is very
thoughtful, hut she makes mo feel as if
she had not a particle of tenderness in
her. Do you biipposo it waa all killed
that day?"

Frankfort Letter to American Rural Home.
I wonder, when I look upon tho nat
ural beauties of "tho German father
land," why so many of the sons and
daughters emigrate, oven to fair
Germany, as wo seo it to-day, is a
wonderfully compact empire so iar as
government is concerned. Everything
is in systematic order, and Jho gov
ernment has as keen an insight into
overy man's public and private lifo as
the keeper of a penitentiary has over
his wards.
When I came into this goodly city,
the police knew it; where I staid they
knew, what I was here for thoy thor
oughly understood, and when I was in
tending to leave was perfectly known
to them. My landlord or my host,
were obliged "to report all theso facts
to tho police authorities, or thoy
would havo been siihjoted to the pen
alties of tho law a line in all such in
stances. If a man is subject to mili
tary duty and leaves ono province for
another, he, too, is obliged to report
to the police, and so with every ono
else. Like as a hen gathoreth hor
chickens under her wing, so tho Ger
man government protects and exacts
complianco with all her regulations
from every citizen and foreigner.
This magnificent constabulary is all
under command of tho authorities at
Berlin, and an adequate force is put
into every town, city and village in
overy province. The result is, so far
as a stranger can see, tho empire is at
peace internally, as far as completa
espionage of overy individual can so
euro internal peace. Thero aro no
tramps, no thieves at largo, no bur
glars, few rows, fower riots. Likoasby
tho ear of Dyonisius, overy sound is
reported to tho over watchful and over
faithful police.
Germany, as I havo said, is a beau
tiful country. Every spot of arable
land is under careful cultivation, and
yet forests of great size abound, lend
ing a charm to tho landscape which
ono very much misses in Franco.
Tho people aro apparently hap
py, as they aro industri
ous and frugal. livery one
drinks beer it is a duty thoy think
they owe to their country and they
liko it. Were I a beer, connoisseur I
should liko it, too, for I could drink it
with impunity, so far as fearing any
ovil from unpuro ingredients. In
Munich, for instance, Bavarian boor is
made in its simple purity, under tigov
eminent license and formula, and if
any ono, in anv part of tho realm,
finds any ingredients in a bottle ot
beer not called for by the formula, tho
licenso is revoked forever. A shrewd
Yankee came into this country a few
years ago and attempted to make
beer as it is mado in soma placos in
tho states (not, of course, in fair
Hochester, whoso beer, Dr. Lattimoro pure), out of "cats and dogs,"
but ho did not thrive very long, for tho
government closed him up speedily.
It is not possible, as a riile( to im
pose adulterated foods and drinks up
on tho German people, for with tho
magnificent supervision hero exercised
over allairs, tho man who attempts
to defraud and injure tho people must
retire discomfited.
Tho government transacts its busi
ness for tho people in tho most ap
proved and conscientious manner.
I hope that eventually America will
bo able to show tho world as admira
ble a system of internal economy. Sho
can learn many, many points of in
calculable vahi3 in this land whence
havo como so many of hor best, most
orderly and most valued citizens.
Without invidious comparisons,
I may say, that looking at tho matter
Iroin tho mother country, I can read
ily undeistand why thoGerman-Aiuer-leans
tire so genial, so industrious, so
attentive to tho duties of citizenship,
so willing, if need bo, to take up arms
for their adopted country, why thoy
aro so fond of social lifo and customs,
it is because "at homo" these things
are taught them as duties, tho char
acteristics I havo named are bred in
tho bono as they are born in tho
Yesterday at Iloidolburg I saw tho
Crown Prince "iinsor Fritz." JIo is
a passed middle aged man of fine ap
pearance, and when ho succeeds to tho
throne he will "mako things hum" as
the boys say, and you may certainly
look for lively times when tho old em
peror gives way to tho man who does
not particularly enjoy the present
stato of European relations.

hundredth anniversary of tho founda

of itl Five hundred years! "And tho
univoisity? ' "Js it much ' Well no,
not much to the eye. Tho huge build
ing islocated in tho center of tho town
and looks very much liko an old town

maximums of brains, with a minimum
of buildings. With us, iti too many
cases, it is a maximum of grounds,
buildings, apparatus, etc., with, to
Kay the least, a paucity of brains and
endowments. Tho German idea, it
strikes me, is tho better.
One more point, and I am dono.
Tho servant girl problem in Germany
is no problem at all. Wanes run

The Wife of an Armr Utllrer Tflli of ticrontrao's'
(liferful Smile.
From the Rochester (N. Y.) Union.
The wife of a cavalry ofllcer, writing
from Fort Bowie, Ari., under dato of
September 9, gives an interesting ac
count of Geronimo's reception atthut
post as follows.
We had quite an exciting day yester
day. Soon after 8 a. in. Captain
Lawton and Mr. Gotewood arrived
with tho Indians 'JO bucks, with
squaws and children. They all rode
on to tho parade ground over to "G"
troop barracks, where Natchez, and
Geronimo were. Then they dismount
ed, and their ponies wero taken away
and they wero disarmed. Ono littlo
Indian, when ho had seen them taking
their arms, throw down his bow nnd
arrows. Natchez, and Geronimo, hav
ing gotten here first, had had tiiuu to
adorn themselves with new clothing
from tho storo. Mrs. Natchez, was
resplendent in pink calico. Sho is only
15, and sticks closo to her lord.
Natchez has really a fine faco for an
I saw Mrs. Natchez walk over to
where tho squaws wero folding tho
blankets that had been taken from
tho ponies, and after rummaging a
whilo sho fished out a baby in a basket
(or whatovor they call thoso arrange
ments). This was Geronimo's grand
child, and it was only two days old.
Tho mother had ridden about 70 miles
since it was born. .Soon after they ar
rived tho band (which arrived tho
night before from Huachuca, Gen
eral Miles having sent for it) struck
up and played, it was really inspirit
ing. Captain Lawton was most warm
ly received and congratulated. Gen
eral Miles wouldn't risk their remain
ing hero a day, but had mado arrange
ments to send them on at once to
At 11, or soon after, they went.
Capt. Lawton and nil of his command
who cared to go went with him to
Florida. Gen. Miles going with them
as far as Albuquerque. In tho mean
time wo went down to tho barracks
and had a good look at them. Ger
onimo was smiling all the time and
looking very good-natuied and evi
dently thoroughly satisfied with him
self. Ho grinned at my baby and mo
and came up to mo and seemed very
much amused with tho fancy my child
tood to an Indirn baby about his ago
whom ho wanted to hug. They nil
seemed glad to think thoy iroro j'.ping
whoto their relations are in Florida.
I never saw the slightest trace ol
fatigtto or being worn out in any ol
them. They all seemed as fresh
as though they had jti' t started
on tho war-path, and thero is no
doubt but that thoy would nover havo
been caught if they had chosen to stay
out. Geronimo had nothing in the
world the matter with him. Soon
after 11 a quantity of wagons drovo
up in front of tho barracks and tho
Indians wero stowed away. Nhtchox
and his wife and Geronimo ami his
brother going down on a buckboardJ
Geneueral Miles also took his leave.
Geronimo took a violent fancy to tho
general and couldn't bo kept away
from him; he admired his looks and
everything about him.
There was something perfectly irre
sistible to mo about Geronimo'n be
havior and appearance. Tho old vil
lain with his bad, shrewd, cunning
faco and treacherous chaincter, look
ing so peaceful and Mailing, nnd put
ting on all tho airs of a good Indian!
I laughed every t'mo I caught his eye,
and ho laughed too, as if ho wero con
fessing tho sham. When they wens nil
stowed away in the wagons nnd about
to start , tho baud struck up again antl
played themoutof thopost. I beliovo
General Miles sent for tho baud out of
compliment to Captain Lawton.

Tho conference lasted only about twen
ty minutes, during which time James
