j When Napoleon came here he gave
' tho place to General Kellermann, but
i after the deposition of the emperor
the Congress of Vienna presented it
to the Austrian Prime Minister,
Prince iletternich, as a token of rec
ognition of the valuable services he
rendered in oDD03ine Napoleon's ef-
i forts to remodel the map of Europe.
ilie palace is apout 3 miles from
the landing place not a regular
stopping place for boats, by the way
and is situated upon an elevation.
A grand and beautiful view met my
gaze from the terrace in front of the
chateau. The vineyard encircles the
house closely. There are about 75 or
80 acres of grapes, and every acre of
it is worth more than $10,000. The
yield, year in and j'ear out, is, say,
42,500 bottles, every bottle of it worth
at least $2.00 on the plantation and
some of it not to be bought if you
offered a dollar a drop to its owner.
The soil on this place is of a very
red clay,, heavily intermixed with
gravel. " Some spots have been newly
planted and very little land lies fal
low. The vines are all of one kind,
the Riesling. There are several kinds
of -table grapes in the yard and
around the walls in the garden, but
in the vineyard there are no varieties.
There is a great rivalry between
Metternich and the Grand Duke of
Nassau, who owns the Steinberg wine
place. Both vineyards have the
same kind of grape, so it is but the
location and the soil which can be in
favor of the one or the other. The
mode of making wine is the same,
but the grapes are not always plucked
at the same time. Generally they
are plucked in November, not infre
quently when the snow is on the
ground, but when caught by rain or
snow tho wine roses much of its
flavor. On one occasion the steward
of tho Johannisberg estate picked
grapes a week earlier than did his
rival on the Steinberg. During that
week snow fell and the duke's grapes
were watered, so that he lost many
thousand dollars. As for Metternich,
one hogshead of that year's wine
185 gallons made out of selected
berries, netted him $7,000, or $8.00 a
bottle on the farm.
I was permitted to visit the cellars,
which are under the palace. After
going" down 25 or 30 feet we entered
the cellar. Hundreds of lights illu
mined the room. There were two
rows of barrels of wine and on almost
even' barrel was a lighted candle.
The vaults aro all about 40 feet wide
and 20 high, arched with stone. In
tho center stood a table, and on it
were several empty glasses. We sat
down on the end of a barrel and the
steward talked to me in a way that
made me love him. The grapes from
which these wines are made, quoth
he, are picked by women and chil
dren, who have wooden tubs with
leather straps so that they may be
carried on the back. When these
tubs are full, they are taken to a place
where skilled men classify the grapes
that is to say, they take all the
finest bunches and lay them in one
tub, the next finest in another, and
so on. From the first-class grapes
the best berries arc cut out and
placed in a large earthenware dish.
They are trodden out, not by bare
footed men. but bv men in boots
made for that purpose. They are
pressed in a press which no other
sort of grape ever touches. The juice
is put into a clean barrel and left for
fermentation. The bunghole is cov
ered with an earthenware funnel,
which is half filled with water, so
that the gas bubbles up through the
water, but no air can reach the wine.
When the wine is made it is bottled
and stored carefully away in the
private cellar of the prince, and no
man's money may buy a drop of this
supernacular. The first-class bunch
es, from which the best berries have
been cut, are carefully divested of
dust and other impurities and are
then trodden and pressed, and to the
juice thus produced is added that
pressed from the second and third
class bunches. The juice is then run
into barrels in the cellar, the bung
hole in each barrel being covered
with an earthenware funnel half filled
with water, as already described.
The juice remains thus until March,
when It is drawn off into perfectly
clean barrels. The first year the
wine is drawn off into other barrels
four or five times. It is first drawn
off four or five weeks after it is put
into barrels, then in two months,
then in three, then in four. In the
second fear twice is sufficient, in the
third year once, then once in two
years; after that it remains quiet
until bottled, corked, and capsuled.
" I should like you to taste some
of our best wines," remarked the
steward, when we had gone through
all cellars. Of course I accepted this
chance and he led me back to the
room where stood the tablo and tho
empty glasses. I put myself to this
delicate task with all possible cau
tion. Gently I lifted my glass, looked
at its contents, placed it to my lips ;
but I did not drink it. I simply
decanted it a little, just enough to
take a few drops on my tongue, and
these few drops I let trickle slowly
.down my throat; and as I held back
my head and thus tasted into my be
ing the exquisite stuff, I saw with
half-clossed eyes the steward looking
at me admiringly. "Very few stran
gers who visit us, know how to tasto
fine wines," he remarks, and thereon
I inform him that I have visited about
every chateau in the Medoc, in the
Granes, and on the hills on the right
bank of the Ciron. After having
tasted from several different barrels,
I finally concluded by drinking an
entire glnss of the finest white wine
I mortal can ever hope to imbibe. . The
steward insisted on my drinking still
more, but I knew when to stop, al
though I appreciated his hospitality.

A Crow and Poe'a Raven.''
In the same room at Fordham in
which the bones of sweet Annabel
Lee, the wife of Edgar Allan Poe,
were kent, waiting the transfer into
the hands of relatives in Baltimore,
was also jealously guarded the origi
nal manuscript "of "The Raven,"
which was destined to a place in the
corner-stone of the Poe monument.
Late one afternoon, while the window
happened to be opened, a raven flew
in and lighted on the portfolio con
taining the precious manuscript. The
gentleman in the room was, as can
be readily conceived, at first much
startled, but upon approaching the
bird and finding it quite tame, ex
plained the strange coincidence sat
isfactorily enough. The raven showed
no disposition to move, and the gen
tleman having no provision for so
unusual a guest, took him to a drug
gist near by who kept him for his
children, as there was no advertise
ment for him in the daily papers.
Soon after, while visiting at the house
of a prominent and wealthy New
Yorker, the hostess expressedto him
the desire for a tame crow. Thinking
the raven as worthy of place in that
household as a 'crow would be, the
"gentleman in New York, who
knew much of Poe's life," induced
the druggist to return him the raven,
which he forthwith sent to the lady
before mentioned, and in whose
home it still lives a' quiet and une
ventful life. New York Tribune.
What we all need is to have some
one aim, some one ruling purposc.and
to seek that first and always. This
gives unity to the soul and keeps it
from being squandered in secondary
and unessential matters. And, as ft
is essential to have one general pur
pose, so at every moment in life one
thing becomes the nearest duty, and
this is paramount to all others.

A pompous fellow was dining with
a country family, when the lady of
the house desired the servant to take
awav the dish containing the fowl,
which word she pronounced fool, as
is not uncommon to Scotland. "I

fowl," said the prig" in a reproving
tone. ' Verj' well," said the lady,
a little nettled, "be it so. lake away
