much beer as thou canst drink."
"Thank you," replied the duke,
"I am not thirsty, but I shall cer
tainly go with you," which he did,
and played for nic-ro than two hours
in "the inn down there."
The peasants and their lassies
were in ecstasies while dancing to
the tunes of their new friend. With
the poetical feeling native to the
mountaineers of the Alps, they sanjr,
jumped about and kept up a steady
demand for more tunes. The duke,
whose face beamed with joy, at

to leave. .

peasants, "but not till thou hast
played the new dance composed by
Duke Maximilian. It is the most ex
quisite piece of music I ever heard.
Play it and I'll give thee 24 kreut

The following amusing incident
is related of the Duke Maximilian,
who was a great lover of the zither,
a singularly plaintive instrument
and, the national guitar of the Ger
man Alps. During the Bummer he
delighted in wandering over tho
mountains in the garb of a common
hunter, armed with a rifle, and the
zither hung around 'hia shoulders.
During one of these excursions ho
sat down on the trunk of a tree and
