A EUROPEAN NOBLEMAN LABORING
HARD FOR SMALL PAY.
now It Came A boot That a I'orrlcorr,
Who Was at One Time Lloulsed by
, New York's "Swell Set," Is Now am In
terpreter on Kills Island.
Ring went the pilot's bell, the wheels
ppla&hed and we were off for Ellis island,
where 1 made the discovery which en
ables ine to tell this tale and right a
Ellis island, unfamiliar to most New
Yorkers, although at the very door of
their harbor, is the place where immi
grants land from the steerage of incom
ing steamers. It is a place full of quaint
and picturesque scenes of human life a
rare place for a philosopher, and 1 found
"Who is that dark featured man with
the heavy mustache?' 1 inquired of an
employee when he had made a landing.
The subject of my query was bustling
about in the swarm of foreigners, speak
ing half a dozen languages at the same
time; now showing some stupid Dutch
man the way to the railroad office; now
saying a kind word to some forlorn
Polish peasant woman; now speaking in
perfect English to a fellow official, for
the gold letters on his hat told me that
be was connected with the service.
There was something about the man
which at once interested and puzzled me.
Ah! shure,sir, an that's the count, as
we calls mm, seem as ne wears tnem
hoy toned clothes and toothpick shoes,
but he's a dacent chap enough for all
1 now noticed that "the count" was
dressed in excellent, almost elegant
style, his Prince Albert coat having cer
tainly been made by a London tailor;
his trousers falling in faultless lines and
creases over a pair or patent leatner
shoes. Once or twice as he moved about
1 caught a glimpse of a scarlet waistcoat,
such as the extreme swells of Paris are
fond of wearing. His linen, too, was
such as betrays the gentleman, and the
careful droop and curl of his black mus
tache could only have been obtained by
long familiarity with the curling irons.
"Here," 1 reflected, "is a mun who
dresses and carries himself and looks
like a howling European swell, acting as
interpreter for a mob of unwashed emi
grants. I wonder who he is?"
1 asked the question of another man
wearing the official cap.
"He's the dude, that's what he is,"
was the only answer 1 could get. An
other man called him "the baron," and
finally 1 got hold of the chief of the rail
road department, who gave me the key
to the puzzle.
"The man you have noticed," said he,
"is one of the most willing and efficient
employees in my department, and you
will be moderately astonished when 1
tell you that he is known and received
in the best society of a dozen cities, in
cluding New York, London and Paris.
He is no other than the Baron de Grune
"What, the Baron de Grunebaum
New York society made such a fuss over
a few years ago?"
"Precisely. The Baron de Grune
baum, whom Mrs. As tor and all the rest
of the Four Hundred danced with and

Bame courtly ease he might have dis
played in saluting a millionaire partner

"Do you suppose he would mind talk
ing with me?" 1 asked, forgetting my
own business in this newly aroused in-
"1 will ask him, said tne good heart
ed superintendent, and he presently re
turned with his distinguished employee.
A few words put us at our ease, and the
baron, not without hesitation, finally ac
cepted my invitation to a quiet dinner a
tow days later. Then he went back to
Lis duties and I to mine.
The dinner came, and I hope the
baron enjoyed it as much as I did. The
conversation was entirely in French,
i which he speaks, as he does English,
German, Italian, Hungarian, Bohemian
and I don't know how many others,
with scarcely a trace of foreign accent.
"Why, you know I came to America
about eight months ago at the wish of
' tny father," he said; "but stop a moment,
false and outrageous about me that I am
Dot sorry to have a chance to set myself
right. 1 will tell you how my father
came to send me to America. 1 had been
j living at a pretty rapid pace, with gam
bling and so on, and had run myself into
lebt up to the eyes, as I thought I had a
' right to do, being the only son of a man
who is immensely wealthy. Things came
to a crisis about a year ago, and 1 ap
pealed to my father, who promised to
pay my creditors if I would show my in
liirinrr a mnro flpnnnQ hf ft hv
i -roinsr to America and tamnir a rancu out
in .Nebraska, where he thought the
healthful outdoor work would
into better habits.
I agreed and came to
I America with about $20,000 capital,
which he advanced me. That was all 1
L'ould have under any circumstances for
& vp.nr to come.
"Unfortunately, soon after landing in
I New York I made the acquaintance of a
! delightful fellow who persuaded me to
Invest my money m Chicago Gas stocic at
hf ty-two. He said I would have $100,000
in a month. So I would and more had
he made the investment a little later, for
Chicago Gas has since touched eighty.
As it was, the stock broke on some ru
mor and my margin was wiped our and
1 was left without resources. I could
not go back to Europe because of tho
promise 1 made to my fatlier: 1 was too
proud to beg; I was incapable of doing a
dishonorable action, so 1 sought si: cm

Mrs. Henry Ward Beecher gives . .
teresting account of the lirst wrniT
preached by Mr. Ueecher in Plymout:
church, Brooklyn, in her fifth paper ;
"Mr. Beecher as I Knew Him" in 1 1.
Ladies' Home Journal. A perfect
of warnings and criticisms came to hi
before his first sermon. Doubtless "
these warnings, determined Mr. Ueeeii"
more than aught else that the peopl f
his new church should fully under: t.;.. i
before he was installed what cour.-e i
was likely to pursue. He told me tb. 1
if Plymouth church decided to in--., i.
him, it would do so with its eyes wi ;
open. It was upon the evening of tvi..
day, Oct. 10, 147. He sat quietly .
the pulpit while the choir was sin;i .
His eyes scanned the concourse of
pie before Mm, but it was the 1.x .w
confidence that I saw.
Knowing jts I did something of w ! '
he intended to say, 1 could not I
think, "Will these people accept i .i-
bold course be has marked out for !,.!
work from one so young looking?" 1 i
his ten yfars of labor at the west h..l
not rubbed the youth from bis face. 1
noticed tht almost contemptuous 1 l's
of the strangers present as they watched
his face. As he rose to read the Sen
tures a deathlike silence pervaded tlir '
great church. But not a tremor wua i
visible in the voice that spoke. With
that mellow voice which the Brooklyn
public learned so well to know ho rea l
the lesson of the evening as if he were be
fore his Lawrenceburg audience. Then
as he uttered the first low sentence of
his prayer, as his heart rose heavenward,
the effect of the preacher became visible
on bis congregation, and he brought hia
hearers close to the mercy seat. All was
changed. An almost breathless solemni
ty pervaded the church, and tears were
on many faces.
The youthful look vanished and did
not return, as in his sermon he plainly
and with great solemnity showed hid
hearers the course duty called him to
pursue. As he said of these remarks
years after: "I lifted up the banner and
blew the trumpet in the application ct
Christianity to intemperance, to slavery
and all other great national sins, i said
to those present, lf 1 remain here and
you come to this church it must at the
commencement be distinctly understood
that 1 wear no fetters, that 1 will be
bound by no precedent, and that I will
preach the Gospel as I apprehend it,
whether men will hear or whether they
will forbear, and I will apply it sharply
and strongly to the overthrow of every
evil and to the upbuilding of all that is
After the close of the sermon many
eame to counsel Mr. Beecher. They
were actuated by kindness to him and
anxiety for the church. Such bold, plain
speaking they did not understand. They
had never been used to it. It would
overthrow this young church.
"Don't ally yourself to unpopular men
or unpopular causes," they told him.
"There is no call for it. You will only in
jure yourself and break up this church."
After preaching a month in Plymouth
church he was installed as pastor on
Nov. 11, 1847.

"It you were a a jury, Clara," said the
embarrassed young lawyer hesitatingly.
I could plead my cause with more self
possession. In the courts or er or iovs
I don t think I stack up as a nrst class
"Perhaps you have not had an exten
sive practice in such courts, William,"
suggested the maiden softly.
"That's it exactly, Clara!" eagerly re
joined the young man, moving his chair
a little nearer. "I'm a green hand at
this business; but ii I could feel sure the
"Yes wasn't prejudiced against the
"Yes why, then, I might"
"What kind of jury are you consider
ing me, William?" she asked, with eyes
"A h"m petit jury of course. You
couldn't be a grand jury, you know,
"Because we don't try cases before
"I think, William," said the young
girl blushing, "I would rather for this
occasion be considered a grand jury."
"Because" and she hid her face
somewhere in the vicinity of his coat
collar "1 have found a true Billl"
"1 was arguing with an Englishman
the other day," said a New Yorker,
"over the pronunciation of a word, and
finally I said, 'We'll leave it to Web
ster.' 'What if you do?' cried the Eng
lishman, 'that's only one man's opinion.
I've heard that you Americans refer ev
erything tb a dictionary;' Surprised, 1
asked what was the custom in England,
and he told me that Oxford and Cam
bridge were the accepted referees.
Neither seat of learning takes preced
ence of the other, but over all other
authorities, and if two men can prove
respectively their claimed pronunciations
to be sanctioned by the two universi
ties, both are right. New York Times.
Aluminium is suggested for coining by
Sir Henry Bessemer in discussing the
demand for a token at the value of one
pound. Aluminium is so light that if
taken from the pocket in the dark it
would be instantly recognized as neither
gold nor silver. Also the weight of lead
or pewter alloys would make it impossi
ble to pass off spuriou saluminium coins.
