A ROMANTIC MARRIAGE.
Hotr Emperor Francis Joseph Firat
Saw His Future "Wife.
An interesting story is told ia the
Cosmopolitan by Charles Frank Dewey
of how Emperor Francis Joseph of
Austria met and won his wife. His
mother intended that he should wed the
Princess Helena , the eldest daughter
of the Bavarian Duke Max. Francis
Joseph acquiesced in this arrangement
with passive indifference and set out
for Duke Max's castle -consummate
the formal betrothal. On his way
through the park , before he reached
the door of the castle , however , he saw
strolling about amid -shrubbery a
little girl whose extraordinary beauty
fixed his attentions and won his heart
"Within the hour he ascertained that
she was Princess Elizabeth , a younger
sister of his intended bride , and he can
celed the engagement his mother had
made for him. and vowed that he would
marry no one but the exquisite creature
he had seen in the park. To this M.-j.x-
imilan soon gave his consent ; nor did
the Princess Helena greatly object , for
she was far from loving the Emperor.
In his own family and among the no
bility of Austria , however , the Emperor
'heard nothing but remonstrances. Princess -
cess Elizabeth was only the younger
daughter of a penniless duke , and was
-not 'by birth a "royal highness. " To all
this Francis Joseph was deaf. He was
Jn love with the beautiful girl and he
would marry her. What was the use of
being-Emperor if he could not ? So , in
April , 1854 , he was married. Mother
and kinsfolk would scarcely recognize
the wife , and the Viennese aristocracy
held aloof from her. The fair young
Empress she was once the loveliest
woman in Europe upon her part re-
turned-scorn for scorn , j ixa
Silk from Shellfish.
That silk may be produced from cer
tain mussels or shells is a fact known ,
but only recently renewed attention
was called to the matter by the receipt
by the Berlin Royal Museum of a pair
of golden-brown silk gloves , made of
bj-ssus silk. This silk is obtained from
Hie small silky tufts protruding from
the byssus shell , which they use for
holding fast to the ground rock under
water. This fibre is silky and changes
in color from greenish yellow to dark
brown. The single threads are from
two to three inches long , and after be
ing cleaned and dried they are spun
into yarn. Byssus silk woven into
material is still a great curiosity , for
the supply of material is so scarce that
industrial development of the manu
facture is out of the question. Only
in certain small settlements on the
coast of Sicily there is some effort to
work with this material , the shell used
being the so-called Pinna. Fishermen
tear the shells with nets from the
rocks , and , after cutting the tufts , re
turn them into basins of shallow
water ; the tuft will grow again with
in a year. It takes between 3,000 and
4,000 shells to obtain a pound of fibre.

I GREATEST O7 TABLE TALKERS.
Volubility of the Iron Chancellor
While at His Meals.
When in the course of his tour around
the world Gen. Grant went to Berlin
and had an interview with Prince Bis
marck then at the height of his pow
er he carried away with him the im
pression that the German Chancellor
was the most interesting conversation
alist he had ever mot Carl Schurz , who
subsequently came to Berlin and was
entertained by the Chancellor , said
that the best table talkers he had ever
known were Mazzini and Oliver Wen
dell Holmes , but that Bismarck was
better than either.
It was a strange anomaly that one
of the wisest men and best table talk
ers of modern times should have been
" ' " the best of
born on "All Fools' Day"
talkers , because the greatest man of ac
tion , of modern times. And how infin
itely more interesting must ever be the
talk of a man who has done great
things than that of a man who has only
thought great thoughts ! Bismarck him
self never published his autobiography ,
if he ever wrote one. But when his own
memoirs come to see the light it will
be found that much of their interest
has been discounted by the autobiog
raphy which he has already spoken.
For , in addition to being the greatest
actor of his time in the literal meaning
of the word doer , achiever , author of
events , maker of history he has also
been one of the greatest talkers in the
sense employed by Gen. Grant and Carl
Schurz , and much of his talk has been
about his own accomplishments. In
deed , there might now be written an in
geniously compiled book entitled "Bis
marck. By Himself , " in which nothing
would be used but the Prince's own
words. Review of Reviews.
An Acquired Talent.
"Ma , Mr. Boxer was speakin' about
