A native of southweat larfur, the
lining individuality and resoluteness
af hla character developed with the
?ierrlne of unlimited power Into the
worst tralta of the despot, says the Na
tional Review. I'rlde degenerated into
t blind belief n bis own infallibility

"irressea of others-w het her It were
the architecture of the mahdt's tomb
or the victories of Zekl as the results
if Inspirations given to himself from
heaven. An Innate cruelty grew to pro
portions unrivaled even by the late em
perors of Rome. He gloated over the
massacre of whole tribes, in the death.
by lingering tortures or starvation, of
his most able and most deserving gen
rrals and advisers. His degeneration
of character was. of course, accompa
nied by an Inordinate sensuality and
love of luxury, display and flattery.
His harem consisted of 400 women, his
wwyguard of 12.000 warriors, clad In
armor, with horses decked In quilted
caparisons. His policy was. In brief,
to exterminate the Nile valley tribes
nd to Introduce the western tribes In
ihelr place, so that the C.ezlra and other
formerly populous districts became de
populated, while he crushed the Ashraf
(mahdi's relative) and took all power
from his brother caliphs. The coinage
was debased by successive stages till It
became a fifth of Its normal value.
Mock Justice was administered by the
cadis, who were hla creatures, whose
duty it became to carry out his de
cisions, however grossly unjust, and to
make them appear so far as possible to
accord with the moslem law and the
mahdi's "Instructions." Religion be
came a mockery and his wretched sub'
Jects ceased to believe In Us travesty.
Pilgrimages to Mecca were forbidden
and replaced by visits to the mahdi's
tomb; commentaries on the koran were
suppressed and the religion of Islam
was made the vehicle of all that was
Education ceased and trade except
the trade In slaves, which assumed vast
proportions and was conducted with
unspeakable cruelties and Incalculable
loss of life became practically non
existent. A veto was placed on trade
In feathers, that In gums was taxed
prohibitively, tobacco was contraband
and Ivory coming only from the south
lwlndled as those provinces lapsed from
the caliph's control. A small and de
sultory trade continued with Egypt,
but a rigid prohibition of the export of
tlaves left but little for merchants to
convey out of the country. Industry
luffered In like proportion and became
limited to a little weaving of common
cloths and some leather work, while
the Immorality bred of chaos, of the
wholesale depopulation of vast dis
tricts by the slave trade and by the
rupture nf all social organization, be
came fearful In Its extent and was ac
companied by the Increase of the dis
eases which usually accompany it.
Lord Palmerstoa ed lha Tarka.
"In regard to the Turks themselves,
may I venture to observe that the gen
ius of their manners and conversation
Is that of yielding everything at first?
They begin by saying, 'Good, yes!' But
when you come to the matter In ques
tion and to Its details you will find all
those fine expressions mean nothing.
Like all people In a weak position, they
respect you according to their opinion
it your force. If, however, you wish
that force to have a permanent Influ
ence and to be unaccompanied by dis
like, you must blend Its exercise with
justice; end If yon wish to arrive at a
quick result through all that ambus
cade of intrigues and doubts and fears
ind prejudices which will be sure to be
ecretly formed against It you must tell
the Turk what he Is to do, why he is to
do it. when he Is to do It, and show
him that you only ask quietly and rea
sonably what you have a right to de
mand. In this way, and this way
alone, you will do business with him.
If he sees you act thus he will not only
agree with you but rely upon you."

But of all the attractive features of
this charming spot. Rothenburg, the
annual Kestsplel, celebrating the cap
ture of the town by Tilly during the
thirty years' war, ranks first, says the
Chambers' Journal. At that time, and
Indeed until 1803, Rohenburg was a
free city, taking an active part In the
peasants' war of 1525. and In the thirty
years' war of the following century
It was In the course of the latter. In
1631. that the celebrated Tilly appeared
before Rothenburg and demanded Its
capitulation. This the citizens refused,
with the result that the gallant little
town was besieged and taken. Tilly
and his generals proceeded to the Rath
haus and demanded the municipal keys
of the burgomaster. At the same time
Tilly Imposed a fine of 30,000 thalers
and garrisoned the town with his sol
diers. The burgomaster pleaded In
vain for some mitigation of the penalty
until the victorious general, after re
malnlng for some time unmoved by his
entreaties, conceived the extraordinary
notion of offering to restore the free
dom of the town on condition that one
of the inhabitants should come forward
snd empty at one draught an Immense
neaker of wine, containing about three
and a half liters (over three quarts).
This was an unheard-of feat, even in
those hard-drinking days, and for some
lime bis offer remained unaccepted.
The opportunity of freeing the town
from a foreign yoke seemed, however,
too important to be lost, and accord
ingly a patriotic citizen named Nusch
resolved to attempt the difficult task
Imposed by the conqueror. As a mat
ter of fact, he drained the beaker at
one draught, and, although tradition
relates that a severe Illness followed
the feat, still he saved the town, for
Tilly kept hla word and restored the
Independence of Rothenburg.
A case showing great cunning and
perseverance, as well as tolerance of
much self-inflicted pain continued for
many months, Is worth telling. The
convict was most determined and re
sourceful In his efforts at malingering.
He began by running a piece of copper
wire Into his knee, by which he nearly
lost his leg. He then produced a num
ber of sores round the knee Joint and
kept up a great degree of swelling and
inflammation by means of rag and
thread pushed Into the wounds. Upon
the discovery of this he took to intro
ducing lime below the skin. On an
other occasion a bandage was found
flrmlf tound round the man's thigh,
the result being, in medical phrase
ology, 'extensive swelling and Uvidlty
of the thigh." The doctor ordered his
limb to be enveloped with a large piece
of gutta-percba so as to checkmate the
prisoner's malpractices. The latter,
however, by means of a strip of sheet
ing and the skewer to which part of
his dinner was attached formed a
tourniquet and by It compressed his
leg so much during the night as to
quite neutralize the medical treatment
It had received during the day. The
imposture was at length detected by
an order of the doctor to expose the
limb outside the bedclothes to the view
of the officer by day and night and
from that hour progress was toward
complete recovery. Chambers' Jour
nal. Another Gold Brick Bold.
A Frenchman named Martin who
keeps a saloon In FiBhklll Landing,
N. Y was robbed of $400 a few days
ago by two men and a woman, who
represented that they had been com
missioned to secure the adoption of a
child by persons who were willing to
pay $2,000 for Its care and mainten
ance. The money was placed In a tin
box, and the Martins Induced to put
$400 with it as an evidence of good
faith. They were to keep the box, and
the $2.00 was to be theirs If the child
was not produced by Sunday. Of
course the child was not produced.
Monday the Martins opened the box
and found It filled with old news
papers. How Ild Ha Get InT
A bass viol player In distress and
unable to pay his rent crawled Into his
big fiddle to die In Paris recently. He
was missed after a day and discovered
on the landlady seizing the viol for

out, even after the back of the viol had
been removed, and as the man Is In
sane, no explanation of how he got In
to his Instrument has been found. Ex.
