Sunday morning Governor Thayer nnd
Senator Mlcklojohu attended church ser

ami were guests the ronmindor of the
day of Warden llyers. Sunday services

hundred and odd convicts Hlintr. into the
chapel in line , the choir niado up from
amoiiK the convicts and the sensible talk
that Kidcr Howe uivcs the prisoners , is
nlwnys interesting to outsiders and al
ways greatly appreciated by the con
victs. At the close of the services Sun
day the governor was called upon by the
elder to talk to the inon , which ho did in
his usual strong and sensible way and
Senator Micklojolm also spoke to thu
men. The IIK ! : has boon unable to verify
the report that the senator prefaced his
remarks with "gentleman and fellow
cltlzons , " but his talk was highly appre
ciated. At the close of the services there
\vn3 a great demand on the part of many
of the prisoners to hold conversation with
the governor and he hold private Inter
views with u do/on or more of the con-
vtcts. It was remarked by some of the
prisoners that it was the first time in ton
years that a governor had publicly talked
to them and they seemed greatly to ap
preciate It.
There is n life prisoner in the pen
named Ulck Foster , who years
niro murdered a negro in Nebraska
City. Ho is ono ot the
oldest prisoners in service , his prison
number being 33. Foster , with the others ,
was very anxious to sec the governor and
talk with him , but as he had failed to at
tend the church services , the guards in
formed him that the visitors would not
want to see him. This old prisoner is a
harmless , somewhat simple-minded con
vict , and a.s ho wouldn't leave the peni
tentiary if ho could , he is allowed almost
unlimited freedom. lie lishcs n good

as he is familiarly known throughout the
institution , has nodeslro to attend church
at the prison chapel on Sunday , and ho
lias resorted to an ingenious method to
appear very busy on that day. He has

Senator Micklojohn , in conversation
with the IJnK , was very warm in his in
dorsement of the sanitary and other
regulations of the penitentiary , and es
pecially commended the discipline and
management of Warden llyers and his
deputy , Dan Hopkins. "The institution
was never in bolter hands or better con

after his visit ;

Items of Interest from tlio "Houve
iilrs" of Maurlco Strnkoscli.
It is estimated that Madame Pattl , dur
ing her transAtlantic seven month's
tour cleared upwards of 1500,000. The
receipts averaged $5,000 per night , arid
the"primadouna"was not only on sharing
terms , but had a certain sum guaranteed/ /
The "souvenirs" of impressario Maur
ice Strakosch , Madame Patti's brothor-in-
law , which have lately been published in
Franco , contain some interesting facts.
In 1800 the late E. T. Smith engaged
Pattl to come from America to London
at the then heavy salary of f. TOO per week ,
Smith ( according to Mr. Strakosoh ) sold
his Drury Lane season to the late Mr.
Gyo , and for the sum of $20,000 gave
that manager the' monopoly of opera.
Mr. Strakosch offered the Pattl contract
to Mr. Gyo , who curtly refused tt. Event
ually Mr. Gyn offered to give Mine. Patti
a hearing at Co vent Garden on the terms
that she should sing for six weeks
gratuitously. If Mr. Gyo were dissatin-
fled with her the matter would then bo at
an end. But if ( as tlio event proved ) ho
chose to do so , Mr. Gyo was to have the
obsolute right for five years at $750 per
mouth during the first year , $1,000 per
month for the socond.f 1,250 for the third ,
11,150 for the fourth and ? 2,000 per month
for the fifth year. She was to sing no
loss than twice a week , and thus her fees
for five years averaged from $90 to $ JOO
per nignt. This salary was paid to
Madame Palti during the whole five
Tears , although Mr. Gyo graciously gave
nor a present for extra nights. Until
Madame Patti married the Marquis do
Caux , Mr. Strakosoh , who then managed
all her business , declares she never re
ceived from Mr. Gye moro than $600
per night in her life. Grisi and Marie ,
according to the same authority , re
ceived in the zenith of their fame $250
per representation , but during his fare
well season Marie certainly was paid
more. Strakosch states that in 1802
Madame Pauline Lucca was paid at the
Berlin opera bouse $300 per month. By
the time she reached Paris Madame
Patti was a great star , and the empire
was at the height of its recklessness.
Yet the prlma donna received only ? 400
per night for the first season and $000
for the third. Patti's engagement for
Russia wore at the rate of $1,400 per
night , and the era of extravagant sal
aries began. When Madame Patti and
Nilsson were in fierce rivalry all artists'
salaries rose still higher , until they cul
minated In the disastrous American eca-
son of Mr. Abbey a few years ago.
It is to be hoped that the climax of
a system which renders efficient opera
niving with a reasonably efficient en-
sombre , financially impracticable , has
been reached.

Romance of Titled Heads.
There is a remarkable tomb m the
Eravoynrd surrounding the Utirdun
church at ilanovcr , Germany. Mans-
oloutus of noted men have uot attained
the celebrity that this grave has , though
the Caroline YOU Ruling whose name Is
on the marble would havu boon wholly
forgotten but for a certain occurrence
connected with her burial place. 1'ow
go to Hanover nowadays who do not
look at this house of the dead. It is an
attraction for the curious , the poetical
nnd the religious an elegy and sermon
A young German named A. Illnrich-
sun , who lately paid a visit to his native
land und visited the spot , brought back
with him to San Francisco n photograph
of this tomb. To n reporter who visited
him at the Kuss house , whole ho is em
ployed , ho gave the following account of
the grave : The churchyard in which the
grave is situated is In a central and very
fashionable part of Ilanovcr. It is on
Marion , about live minutes' walk
from the National opera house , which is
located on the principal nvcntio in the
city. The church itself is a small build
ing. It is very old and plainly shows its
age ; but it lias , nevertheless , a
wealthy and fashionable con
gregation. It still boars the
namn of the Garden or Market
church , which was conferred on it more
than a century ugo , when the locality
was chlully the homo of the market gar
deners , who cultivated their vegetables
here , and wont to this little church every
Sunday morning. As the city spread the
churchyard became surrounded by resi
dences of richer people and those belong-
ng to the nobility , and when they died
liny were buried in this cemetery. That
s how Caroline Von Killing's grave came
o bo placed in the market-gardener's
graveyard. As the "Von" in her name
indicates , she was a woman of rank.
There are some people living in Han
over now who boar the name of Von
luling , and I am informed that they nro
descended from the family to which she
belonged. They are persons of wealth.
According to the inscription on the
tomb , she must have boon a young wo
man when death claimed nor. The
epitaph states that she was born in 1750
and died in 1783. The statement is also
carved on the tomb that "she died after
bearing throe sons to heaven. " This in-
cription is also on the stone :
1'artlng Is the fate ot mortals.
How blttor to be loft so soon I
The rest ot life Is nought but darkness :
hut deatli will be the break of day ,
To meet again eternal lictit.
The tomb was made of big , heavy
blocks of sandstone. The top one on
which these inscriptions are is an im
mense piece of granite , over which is
fashioned a black cloth resembling a pall
that partly conceals the representation
of a torch that has been extinguished and
is still smoking. It is on this stone cloth
that the inscription already mentioned
are engraven. The most remarkable
words those in fact , that lend an inter *
est to the grave are on the highest of
the two sandstone steps below. This in
scription , like all the others , is in Ger
man and is thus placed :
Dieses aufewljf Erkaufto
Grab dart nle goelluot
Its moaning in English is : "This bury
ing place , bought for eternity shall never
bo opened. " This waa a strange declar
ation and simple people who resided in
the neighborhood never road it but 'with
awe. It was not the more result of a
whimsical wish , apparently , for it was
whispered thatsomo horrible secret was
buried in this tomb , which Caroline von
Ruling and her family wished to have
forever concealed from the knowledge
of man. Not only was it sacrilege to
trouble a grave so inscribed , but the
German law made it a crime for the
tomb to be opened against the express
wish of the deceased. Consequently the
Von Rulings presumed that they could
hide for eternity whatever was buried
there. But the striking manner in
which the vainness of this presumption
has been shown makes this churohrard
truly worthy to bo called God's acre.
No desecrating hand dare touch the
tomb , but years ago , remarked Air. Hin-
richsen , so many that I could not find
anybody on my visit who know the num
ber , a little birch scud found its way into
a llttlo crevice between the top block and
the others on which it restod. Some soil
was blown in with it. Gradually the
seed sprouted , throw out its shoots , took
root in the ground and season after sea
son continued to grow. As it increased
in size it raised the big block , which
yaar after year became displaced. Al
last Its spotted trunk and branches rent
all the stones asunder , and now every
one who approaches the tomb , can gaze
into its depths and ponder , If they be go
inclined , on the impotence of man. The
tree is still growing and in summer it
rains down showers of leaves on the
grave of Caroline Von Ruling.
The story about the tomb , which hac
been talked about and repeated until it
became a legend , was that Caroline Von
Ruling was never married , and when ly
ing on her deathbed , told her. parents of
some horrible secret that was locked up
in a chest which she wished placed in
her grave when she was interred. She
wished the chest und the unknowable
thing it contained forever bidden from
man's gazi > , and her parents had the repelling
polling inscription made according to
her desire.
There is another tale also which is toll
in Hanover concerning the tomb. I
sounds more poetical and not so practi
cal as the other. Ihis legend represents
the occupant of the tomb and her three
infant sons as having been secretly poi
soncd by a malicious enomy. The mur
dorcss , who was an adopt in the art o
magic as well as poison , in order to per
fect her diabolical revenge , bound the
mother's soul within her body by means
of dark spells , that it might remain in
the grave and not fly up to hoavon. llu
the spirit of ono of the murdered SODS
was allowed to descend ia the form of a
birch lew ! , which grow into > tree nn <
forced open the tomb. The mother's ion
wa * freed and rejoined those of her sons
I am inclined to believe , said Mr. Hin
richsen , that there was some truth in the
first story , for when I looked into the
tomb I could see nothing but A little boxer
or chest about & foot or ( o long
Strangely enough there was no coflln or
oaiket visible.
The wonder of this occurrence does
not end hire. Adjoining this tomb !
Mother one , also belonging to tht Yea
Rulings , on which Uere is a similar pro
totting inscription. It In apparently
destined to be opened in the same wai
s tba ether was. When I visited the
grave a little birch sprout had gainoc
headway through one of the erannica o
this second tomb. It KM supposed tha
it was tno offshoot from a root of the
big birch tree close by.
There are more than a thousand graves
in this cemetery , but th * e are the only
ones on which there li.ivch an iniorip
tion. Though the place ia tilled with al
dmls of trees that are growing near nnd
around graven , none has burst n to nib
asunder like that birch has. Graves that
1.1 vo been them for more than a hundred
ears remain unopcrtiid. As the birch
roe continues to grow It will gradually
hrow the oblong blocks of sandstone to
ho ground.

strikes the heart. Theid diseases are the
most painful and the most dangerous of any
to which human kind is.liable. They fly

outward applications are in themselves dan

my wife was afflicted with both rheumatism
and neuralgia. She had used numerous
remedies with no apparent relief. Having
learned of tome of the cures affected by
Athlophoros I bought some for her. I
think it wa * four or five bottles she used ,
since which time she has been entirely well
of both rhematistn and neuralgia. As she
was a very great sufferer I consider Ath

such a case. "
W. C. McClain , clerk for Smith & Bone-

have tried everything I knew of for my
rheumatism , but nothing did me any good
until I used Athlophoros , It was in July ,
ibS4. I was confined to the house for over
a month , and was obliged to use crutches.
I suffered with this rheumatism for about a
year. Finally I decided to give Athlo
phoros a trial , thinking it wouly be no bet
ter than the medicines I had used. I felt a
change after I had used a bottle. I con
tinued using it , and have not had any rheu
