ROMANCE OF A WEDDINQ RINO.

The fourth year of ray residence nt
the palace was marked by u family
event tho "golden wedding," or fif
tieth anniversary of the marriage of
the Cointo and Comteooe do Tascher dt
la I'agerlc, which way celebrated at
Baden-Uadcn in tho presence of all
their children nnd grandchildren.
A curious circumstance occurrod on
this occasion which Is worthy of men
tion. Tho (Prlnccsac) Comtcsse dc
Tascher had lost, many years before,
her wedding ring, to her great distress,
and It had never bean found. Shortly
before the festivities of the golden wed
ding, tho Duchess uf Hamilton, on
looking over tho Jewels left by her
mother, the Grand Duchess of Dnden,
whoso death had occurred during the
preceding winter, found a small packet
labeled, "The wedding ring of Amelia
von dor Leyen, Bold by a Jew peddler
as having belonged to the Empress
Josephine. To bo returned." It wns
evident that the grand duchess, who
was the moat forgetful of women, had
put this away carofully and entirely
forgotten IL The Duchess of Hamilton,
seeing the Inscription engraved tns'.dA.
"Loulu do Tascher de la Pagerlo
Amelia von der Lflyen," with the date
ot their marriage, sent it to tho count
with tho abovo explanation. Ho kept
tho matter secret till the "golden wed
ding," when tho ring which had been
lost for so long wns again placed on
the finger ot the Princess Amelle von
der Leyen on the fiftieth nnnlversary
of tho marriage which had taken plae
under the sad circumstances already re
lated. "Llfo in tho Tullorlos Under

It Is not uncommon to hear specula
tion on tho permanence of religion. It
would bo JUBt as reasonable to talk to
the permanence of the intellect or tho
conscience, the permnnenco of the im
agination or any other constituent clc
mont of human nature. The vocabu
lary of religion, its forms and ceremo
nies, Its symbols and organlzod Institu
tions, have all their perishable ele
ments; but the source of rollglon is In
separable from tho nnturo of man. vo
do not mean that religion is tho utter
ance nlono ot a slnglo faculty. Intel
lect, Imagination, conscience, emotion,
tho lova of the beautiful nnd sublime,
enter into it: but this only ;
shows from what varied sources of our
naturo it is derived
ab ionB as more
Is anything in tho unlverso to worship,
man will be a worshiper. So long as
God speaks, so long will man answer.
It Is stronge.then, that ro'igious author
ity should have been mado so often to
depend upon somo perishable external
incident of religion rather than upon
the spiritual consciousness of mankind.
