Nor tears nor prayers to worry him.

' riblethan the execution we witnessed
to day ?" said a beautiful woman, dress
ed in the costume of the chatelaines of
the .fifteenth century, on the 10th of
June, 1415, in the front room of a small
building on the principal street of the
ancient city of Constance, in Baden,
where, at that time, the (Ecumenical
Council, which exerted so great an in
fluence upon the destinies of the Church
of Rome, was in session.
"The Emperor Sigismund," replied a
fine looking young man, who was hold
ing one of her hands in his own, "has
violated the solemn pledge he gave to
John Husb to protect him from prose
cution for heresy."
"So he has," rejoined the beautiful
creature. "What a miserable coward he
is, after promising John Hubs a safe
guard back to Prague, to yield to the
importunities of the Italian fanatics
who insisted that the bold Bohemian
preacher should be burnt at the stake!
And what a scene it was ! To strip the
clothes off the body of that venerable
scholar and have him slowly roasted
to death! I witnessed the horrible
spectacle because, to the very last mo
ment, I hoped that the Emperor would
pardon Huss. But when I saw trie ex
ecutioners setting fire to the faggots
round the stake, when the flames burst
forth, and the helpless victim cried out
in a heartrending tone, 'Lord God, have
mercy upon meP and when he then,
under the atrocious pain, began to

burning flesh reached my nostrils, I

"Yes, yours, Antonio Von Bleichen.
Two years ago, at the masquerade at
Kuremburg, a cavalier came to me and
asked me to dance with him. I thought
it was you."
"And it was the Emperor Sigismund !"
"Yes, she said, excitedly, "it was he,
and believing it was you with whom I
had been in love for the three years

Suddenly he appeared in Heidelberg,
accompanied by a large retinae of ser
vants. With him was a beautiful woman.
When the elector of the Palatinate,
whose capital Heidelberg then was, re
ceived him, he said to the elector:
"Behold your Empress, the fairest
daughter of Hungary !"
The chivalrous elector of the Palati
nate knelt down, and kissed the fair
Then followed great rejoicings. .
The huge wine tub in the Heidelberg
cellar was opened a tournament was
held and all possible attentions to
please his Imperial Majesty were paid.
When the Emperor Sigismund left the
beautiful university city on the banks
of that most enchanting of rivers, the
Nectar, the Elector of the Palatinate
made him a costly present of a four
diamond ring, and to the Empress he
gave two bracelets set with rubies and
Moreover, he sent with the Emperor,
who said he was going to Frankfort-on-the-Main,
an escort of fifty Palatine
Two days later the cavalcade arrived
in Frankfort The Emperor did not
meet with a very favorable reception.
The sturdy and liberty-loving burghers
of that ancient free city refused to turn
out to do honor to his Majesty.
On the ZeiL the main street of Frank
fort, the Emperor and his Empress
were not only verbally insulted, but
pelted with rotten eggs.
Vainly did his Majesty rise again and
again in his gilded carriage to address
the unruly crowd. Their jeers and
scornful objurgations silenced him until
he gave it up in despair.
When he sat down the last time in
the carriage, by the side of his beauti
ful wife, a drunken fellow threw at
him a stone which hit him on the fore
head. He sank back with a groan, and
was believed to be dead. His wife
flung herseif upon him.
The escort charged the crowd, killing
a number of them. The wounded Em
peror was taken to the house of the
Burgomaster of Frankfort, where he
was tenderly nursed, and five days later,
arose from his sick-bed.
Then a deputation of the burghers of
Frankfort waited upon him. In the
address which they presented to him
they stated that his treatment of John
Huss had deeply offended them, but
that they hoped his Majesty would be
able to explain to them why he had vi
olated the parole given to the Professor
He arose slowly from his chair and
"My good friends, in due time the
motives that actuated me in ordering
Huss' execution will become patent to
you. Until then I hope you will not
fail to bear true allegiance to the head
of the empire; and in order to show
you how solicitous I am to protect the
interests of your noble free city, I will
on this very occasion grant to you five
years' immunity from paying Imperial
taxes, provided you pay into my hands
nnw tfco sum of KOOOO Auoote."
The burghers consulted for a mo
ment and then respectfully informed
the Emperor that they accepted his
offer with many thanks. They also
told him that the money should be in
his hands the following hour.
Then the ladies of the Frankfort
aristocracy were ushered unto the par

Suddenly the wife of the syndic
stepped up, looking sharply at her.
The Empress extended her hand to
The syndic's wife refused to kiss it
"How dare you refuse to do homage
to my consort?" cried the Emperor.
"Because she is no Empress at all,"
replied the syndic's wife, scornfully. "I
know her very well Her name is Anna
VonStaaden. Her own father has dis
owned her on account of her bad con
duct" The Empress had turned very pale.
The Emperor said to his escort:
"Take that foul-mouthed woman into
"iBdeed," exclaimed the syndic's wife,
"I know the privileges of the wife of a
Frankfort Senator. Even the Emperor
of Germany cannot order my arrest?"
So saying, she sallied out of the room.
Her bold declaration had produced a
profound impression upon the burghers
in the room.
Shaking their heads, they slowly went

That woman was his former mistress.
The execution took place in the prison-yard.

In view of the present complicated
situation of affairs in Europe, when
everybody is looking up as much and as
interesting information as possible con
cerning the nations involved, or likely
to be involved in the eastern difficulty,
there is hardly anything more accept
able to the general public than proph
ecy, and especially the prophecies of
such as bare made their predictions fit
into the facts of history.
Robert Nixon, an old English prophet
known also as the Cheshire Idiot, was a
cotemporary of the famous Mother Ship
ton, also of prophetic proclivities. Nix
on was born of poor parents, in the
vicinity of Vale Royal, on the edge of
the forest of Delamere. He was brought
up to the plow, but exhibited such re
markable ignorance and stupidity that
nothing could be made of hi m. He was
given to uttering strange and uncom
mon sayings, most of which have been
lost as the people believed him irre
trievably insane, and so paid no atten
tion to them. The time came, however,
when they did listen to him attentively
and treasured up all of his utterances,
and it came about in this way: Nixon
was one day engaged in plowing in the
field, when he stopped suddenly in his
work, and with wild look and strange
gestures, cried out : "Now, Dick ! No w,
Harry! O, ill done Dick! O, well done
narry! Harry has gained the day!"
His fellow-laborers did not know what
to make of this curious rhapsody, but
on the following day the meaning of it
was cleared up. Then the news was
brought in by a messenger that at the
very moment when Nixon was heard
to cry out Richard III had been slain
in the battle of Bosworth field, and
Henry the Eighth had been proclaimed
King of England.
The fame of the new prophet soon
spread and at last reached the ears of
the King, who expressed a desire to see
Nixon. A royal messenger was accord
ingly dispatched for him, but long before
he reached Cheshire Nixon knew and
dreaded the honors that were about to
be thrust on him. It is even said that
the fact was known to him as soon as
the desire to see him had passed the
King's lips, for on the same day he ran
about the town of Over in great dis
tress of mind, telling everybody he met
that he had to go to court, and would
be starved to death there (which was
angher remarkable prediction of his
that afterwards came to pass). On the
third day after this the King's messen
ger arrived and carried him off to court
On his arrival at court, the King, in
order to test his powers, pretended to
have lost a valuable diamond, and ask
ed Nixon to discover it for him. Nix
on's reply astonished the King, and
msufe him from that time forth place
implicit confidence in the prophet
The King at one time going out hunt
ing, Nixon followed him to the gate,
saying that he would surely starve dur
ing his absence. Henry asswred him
that such would not be the case, and
told one of his officers to take special
care of him and to feed him well during
the King's absence. This injunction
was carefully carried out and the
prophet fared well ; but as the servants
were wont to abuse him, the officer, to
quiet him, had to lock him in the
King's own closet whither he brought
him four meals a day. The officer, how
ever, was called by royal summons to
Winchester, on a matter of life and
death, and in the hurry of his depart
ure forgot all about poor Nixon, who
was locked in the closet He returned,
after three days, and found Nixon ly
ing on the floor, according to his own
prediction, starved to death.
Nixon faithfully prophesied a num
ber of events, and many of his biogra
phers have been led to believe that all
of his predictions will be sooner or later
fulfilled. This belief is, of course,
founded upon the fact that there have
been several coincidents in his sayings
and some of the leading events of Eng
Among the prophecies believed to
have been fulfilled are the following,

A Shocking Sacrifice.
We hear a great deal about the River
Prifth in these days. My attention has
been called to a romance connected
with it just published in a Bucharest
journal, in the month of January last
a peasant living upon thePruth started
for the market town with his sledge,
having with him his wife and four
children. In the afternoon the party
was pursued by a pack of wolves. The
horse was put into a gallop at once, but
was too heavily weighted to do much
running, and the beasts were soon lap
ping their jaws within a few paces of
the party. Seeing that escape by flight
was out of the question, the father
seized one of his children and threw it
out to the pack. The poor victim was
soon devoured, and before the sledge
had gone above half a mile the wolves
were again upon it Another child was
sacriGced, and then another, and the
fourth and last had just been thrown
out when relief came in sight In her
despair the mother went to the authori
ties and denounced her husband as an
assassin. He was arrested, kept two
months in prison, and brought up for
trial last week. There was great ex
citement in the court when he related
the story of this shocking sacrifice. The
Judges said at the end if he had not
resigned himself to it he would have
lost his children all the same, and with
them his wife and his own life. He
was acquitted. Paris Cor. New York

"I have a considerable library, quite
miscellaneous in make-up, and I have
for years lent books under certain re
strictions. In the first place I seldom
lend a volume out of a set or if for
good cause I make an exception, I stip
ulate the time for its return, as I am a
firm believer in what is worth borrow
ing is worth returning. In the second
place, I keep an account of the books I
loan, to whom and when. In the third
place, when I need to use a book loaned,
or when I think it has been out long
enough to be read, I send for it, whether
the borrower be friend, neighbor or
acquaintance. In the fourth place, I
always intend to cover with paper a
book I lend, though I believe a careful
borrower should do this if the book is
taken uncovered. As to fine bindings,
I am more chary about loaning, my
decision depending upon the borrower
and my opinion of him or her.
"I seldom have lost a bosk by lend
ing. If the borrower dislikes being re
minded of his delinquency in keeping
the book an unnecessarily long time, or
of my (the owner) needing the same,
perhaps he will not soon again borrow,
which decision on his part suits me
exactly, if my experianoe with him
shows bis principles."
