Oh! the quietest boa o earta had X.
jfo thought or trouble, no Mat of care:
Lib. a dream of pleasure "
And Peace bad folded " P""0 tt" K
Bat oae day there )oi m our household bit
A bald-keaded tyrant from Ho-man's-land.
Ob. t despot cane In the dead of Bight,
And no one ventured to ask him why;
Like slaves we trembled before bla might.
Oar hearts atood atltl when we heard blra cry;
Fornever a sonl could his power withstand.
That bald-headed tyrant from Jfo-man'i-land.
He ordered os here and he sent m there
Though never a word could hli mall lips (peak;
With Mi toothless gums and his Vacant stare.
And bis hopeless limbs so frail and weak.
Till I cried. In a voice of stern command;
'Go op. thoa bald-bead from No-man's-land:
But bis abject slaves they turned on me;
IJke the bears in Bcrlpture, they'd rend me
The while they worshiped with bended knee
This ruthless wretch with the missing hair;
For herules them all wltb relentless hand.
This bald-headed tyrant from TsTo-man's-land.
Then I searched for help In every clime.
For peace had fled from my dwelling now.
Till I Anally thought of old Father Time,
And low before htm I made my bow.
"Wilt thou deliver me out of his hsnd.
This bald-beaded tyrant from No-man's-land r
Old Time he looked wltb a puzzled sure.
And a smile came over bis features grim.
'Ill take tbe tyrant under my care;
Watch what my hour-glass does to him.
Tbe veriest bumbag that ever was planned
Is this same bald-bead from No-man's-land.
Old Time Is doing his work full well
Much less or might does tbe tyrant wield;
But, ab! wltb sorrow my heart will swell
And sad tears fall aa I aae blm yield.
Could I stay tbe touch of that shriveled band,
I would keep tbe bald-head from No-man's-land.
For the loss of Peace I nave-ceated to care;
Like other vassals I've learaed, forsooth.
To love the wretch who forgot bis balr
And hurried along without a teotb.
And he rules me, too, with bla tiny band.
This bald headed tyrant from No-man's-land.
STORY OF A PHY8ICIAN'S WIFE
"I have heard of persons whose hair
was whitened through excessive fear,
but, as I never saw myself any one so
affected, I am disposed to be incredu
lous on the subject"
The above remark was made to Dr
Maynard as we sat on the piazza of his
pretty villa, discussing the different
effects of terror on dissimilar temper
aments. Without replving to me, the
Doctor turned to his wife and said:
"Helen, will you please relate to my old
friend the incident within your own ex
perience? It is the most convincing
argument I can advance."
I looked at Mrs. Maynard in surprise.
I had observed that her hair, which was
luxuriant and dressed very becomingly
was purely colorless; but, as she was a
young woman, and also a very pretty
one, I surmised that it was powdered
to heighten the brilliancy of her fine
The Doctor and I had been fellow
students, but, after leaving college, we
had drifted aprrt I to commence prac
tice in an Eastern city, he to pursue his
profession in a growing town in the
West I was now on a visit to him for
the first time since his marriage.
Mrs. Maynard.no doubt reading my
supposition by my look of incredulity,
smiled as she shook her snowy tresses
over her shoulders, and, seating herself
by her husband's side, related the fol
"It is nearly two years ago since my
husband was called one evening to visit
a patient several miles away. Our do
mestics had all gone to a 'wake' in the
vicinity, the dead man be.ng a relative
of one of our serving-women. Thus I
was left alone. But I felt no fear, for
we never had heard of burglars or any
sort of desperadoes in our quiet village,
then consisting of a few scattering
houres. The windows leading out on
the piazza were open as now, but I se
cured the blinds before my husband's
departure, and locked the outside doors,
all except the front one, which I left for
the Doctor to lock after going out so
that if I should fall asleep before his
return, he could enter without arousing
me. I heard the Doctor's rapid footsteps
on the gravel, quickened by the urgent
tones ef the messenger who awaited
him; and, after a sharp rattle of carriage-wheels
had become but an echo, I
seated myself by the parlor astral, and
soon became absorbed in the book I had
been reading before being disturbed by
the summons. But after a time my in
terest succumbed to drowsiness, and I
thought of retiring, when the clock in
the Doctor's study adjoining the parlor
struck 12, so I determined to wait a few
moments more, feeling that he would
be home now very soon, I closed my
book, donned a robe-de-chamber, let
down my hair, and then returned to
my seat to patiently wait and listen.
Not the faintest sound disturbed the
stillness of the night Not a breath of
air stirred the leaf. The silence was so
profound that it became oppressive. I
longed for the sharp click of the gate
latch and the well-known step on the
gravel walk. I did not dare to break
the hush myself by moving or singing,
I was so oppressed with the deep still
ness. The human mind is a strange
torturer of itself. I began to conjure
up vivid fancies about ghostly visitants,
in the midst of which occurred to me
the stories I had heard from supersti
tions people about the troubled spirits
of those who had died suddenly, like
the man whom my servants had gone
to wake, who had been killed by an
accident at the saw-mill. In the midst
of these terrifying reflections I was
startled by a stealthy footfall on the
piazza. I listened between ear and
hope. It miht be the Doctor. But no
he would not tread like that; the step
was too soft and cautions for anything
less wily than a cat As I listened again(
mv eyes were fixed on tfie window-
blind. I saw the slats move slowly and
softly, and then the ravs of the moon
disclosed a thin, cadaverous face, and
bright glittering eyes, peering at me. O
horror! who was it? I felt the cold
perspiration start at every pore. I
JtJh t?r-eC f.

my tongue seemed glued to the roof of
my month, while the deathly-white face
pressed closer, and the great sunken
eyes wandered in their gaze about the
room. In moment the blind closed
nolftlessly as it had been opened, and
the cautious footsteps came toward the
door. "Merciful' Heavenr I cried, in a
horror-stricken whisper, as I heaid the
key turn in the lock, the Doctor, in his
haste, must have forgotten to withdraw
"God forgive rue!" ejaculated Dr.
Maynard, interupting his wife, and look
ing far more exciLM than she. "I can
never forgive myself for such a thought
less act Please proceed, my dear."
"I heard the front door open, the step
in the hall, and helpless as a statue I
sat riveted to my chair. The parlor
door was open, and in it stood a tall,
thin man, whom I never beheld before.
He was dressed in a long loose robe
a sort of gaberdine, and a black velvet
skull cap partially concealad, a broad
forehead, under which gleamed black
eyes, bright as living coals, and placed
so near together that their gaze was
preternatural in its directness ; heavy
grizzled eyebrows hung over them like
the tangled mane of a lion ; the nose
was sharp and prominent and the chin
was overgrown with white hair, which
hung down in locks as weird as the
Ancient Mariner's He politely doffed
his cap, bowed, replaced it and then
said, in a slightly foreign accent:
'"Madame, it is not necessary for me
to stand on any further ceremony, as
your husband, Dr. Maynard hereupon
he again bowed profoundly has already
acquainted you with the nature of my
business here to-night I perceive,' he
added, glancing at my neglige robe, 'that
you were expecting me.'
'No,' I found voice to stammer. 'The
Doctor has said nothing to me abouta
visitor at this hour of the night."
"'Ah! he wished to spare you no
doubt, a disagreeable apprehension,' he
returned, advancing, and taking a seat
on the sofa opposite me. where for a
few momenta he sat and eyed me from
head to foot with a strange glitterine
light in his eyes that mysteriously im
pressed me. 'You have a remarkably
fine physique, Madame,' he observed,
quietly; 'one that might deceive the
eye of the most skilled and practical
physician. Do you suffer much pain Y
"Unable to speak, I shook my head.
A terrible suspicion was creeping over
me. I was alone, miles away Xrom aid
or rescue, with a madman.
41 Ah!' he continued reflectively, "your
husband may have mistaken a tumor
for a cancer. Allow me to feel your
pulse,' he said, rising and bending over

membering it was unwise for a helpless
woman to oppose the yet harmless freak
of a lunatic. lie took out his watch,
shook his head gravely, laid my hand
down gently, then went toward the
study, where, on the tablp, was an open
case of surgical instruments.
Do not be alarmed, Madame,' he
said to me as I was about to rise and
flee, and in another instant he was by
my side, with the case in his possession.
"Involuntarily I raised my hand and
"Spare me! Oh, spare me, I beseech
"'Madame,' he said sternly, clasping
my wrist with his long sinewy fingers,
with a grip of steel, 'you behave like a
child. I have no time to parley, for I
have received a letter from the Emperor
of the French stating that he is suffer
ing from an iliac abscess, and is desir
ous of my attendance. I must start for
Europe immediately after performing
the operation upon your breast;' and,
before I could make the slightest re
sistance, he had me in his arms, and
was carrying me into the study, where
there was a long table with green baize.
On this he laid me, and holding me
down with one hand with the strength
of a maniac, he brought forward from
some hidden recess in his gown several
long leather straps, with which he se
cured me to the table with the skill of
an expert It was but the work of a
moment to unloose my robe and bare
my bosom. Then, after carefully ex
amining my left breast he said:
"'Madame, your husband has made a
mistake. I find no necessity for my in
"At this I gave a long-drawn sigh of
relief, and prepared to rise. -
" 'But,' he continued, 'I have made the
discovery that your heart is as large as
that of an ox I I will remove it so that
you may see for yourself, reduce it to
its natural size by a curious process of
my own, unknown to the medical sci
ence, and of which I am the solo discov
erer, and then replace it again.'
"He then began to examine the edge
of the cruel knife, on which I closed
my eyes, while every nerve was in per
"The mechanism of the heart is like
a watch,' he resumed ; If it goes too fast
the great blood-vessel that supplies the
force must be stopped like the lever of
a watch, and the works must be cleaned,
and repaired, and regulated. It may
interest you to know that I was present
at the post-mortem examination held
over the remains of the beautiful Louise
ef Prussia. Had I been -consulted be
fore her death I would have saved her
by taking out her heart, and removing
the polypi, between which it was
wedged like as if in a vise; but I was
called too late. The King and I had a
little difference; he was German, I am
French. I trust that is sufficient expla
nation.' "He now bent over me, his long white
beard brushing my face. I raised my
eyes beseechingly, trying to think of
some way to save myself. 'O sir, give

the pain!1 1 pleaded.
"Indeed, indeed, Madame, I would
comply with your wish were you not
the wife of a physician, of a skillful
surgeon. I wish you to note with
what ease I perform this difficult opera
tion, so that you may tell your husband
of the great savant whose services he
securedV fortunately in season.'
"As be said this, he made the final
test of tbe knife on his thumb. How

They were fleeing all too fast and yet

never felt less like swooning than now.

at the right of the hall, you will find
everything you need for that purpose
in the bureau.'
"All, Madame," he said, shaking his
head sagaciously. 'I never draw blood

ne had noiselessly approached, and,
taking the horror of my situation at a
glance, had, by the only means at hand,
secured the madman, who was the very
patient he had been summoned to at
tend, but who had escaped the vigilance
of his keeper soon after the departure
of the messenger, who had now returned
with the Doctor in pursuit of him.
As the poor wretch was being hurried
away, he turned to me and said : 'Mad
ame, this is a plot to rob me of my
reputation. Your husband is envious
of my great skill as a surgeon. Adieu !'
I afterward learned that the man was
once an eminent surgeon in Europe,
but much learning had made him mail.
When he bound me to that table my
hair was as black as a raven ; when I
left it it was as you see it now, white
as full-blown cotton." Washington Ga

In New York in 1700 my store was in
Maiden Lane, within three doors of the
store of John Mo watt an extensive
dealer in shoes. His foreman was John
Peluse, who sat behind the counter
stitching shoes and waiting on custom
ers as they stepped in. One day a
corpse was found in the dock at the
foot of the street The Coioner took
the jurymen from the neighborhood
among them John Mowatt and his fore
man John Peluse. The corpse lay on
the table in the center of the room.
Some of the jurymen remarked that ii3
John Peluse looked on the corpse he
started, tHrned pale, and looked as if he
was going to faint He rallied, how
ever, but his subsequent movements
occasioned some curious remarks. The
jury having rendered a verdict of death
by drowning were discharged. Mow

man, but behold he was not there. We
stepped out of doors and saw him high
up the street on a half run, when he
quickly turned a corner. All sorts of
inquiries were made, but noth'ng could
be heard of him. This, with his turn
ing pale at the first view of the corpse.
occasioned some strange surprise among
the jurors for many days afterwards.
John Mowatt was a bachelor of thirty

The Hawkey e Insurance Co.
The Hawkeye Insurance Co. of Des
Moines, has just made its annual state
ment to the Auditor of State, and it
shows that that company is in a most
flourishing condition. It is a matter of
State pride that this home company is
able to make such a satisfactory show
ing. The assets ot the company amount
to 8511,225.05, while its liabilities, in
cluding capital stock and reinsurance of
all outstanding risks, are but ?3208,f00.8r
showing a not surplus of 8202,715.70.
During 1870 the company sustained a
loss for every working day, yet not a
loss remains unpaid, and only one of
the three hundred losses has been con
tested. The business of the Hawkeye
for 1870 was larger by twice than any
other State company, and no company,
hdhie or foreign, makes a better or more
satisfactory showing to its patrons. Mr.
E. J. Ingrsoll, President and Mr. A.
Howell, Secretary, both give their ier
sonal and constant attention to the com
pany's business, and to them is due the
credit of having reared an Iowa insti
tution which has no superiors among
the world's best companies.
