' Brandenburg. and or LouleaVflhelinlna von I
Menlten. Blmarck was born at Ills Cather's
I estate or Schonhausen on April 1 , 1815. To
distinguish hImself from other branches or
his numerous family he called himself ( after
1819) : ; ) "lIlsmarcl.Schonhausen. " In 1821 he
I was sent to school at the , Plamann academy
In Berlin , and In 1821 entered tim FrClerlck ! '

. where It was Intended that ho shonld study
jurlsprndenco But neither at school nor at
the university did he dleplay much aptltudc'I I
for study but that of history. For the ! [ rest
he was chlelly remarl11blo [ In these early :
years for hIs good temper , his delight In
amusements of all kinds and his phyalcalca
strength and courage.
. It Is recorded of Dlsmarck that In throoq
. "semesters" at Gollingen be fought and can-
'quered In seven and twenty duels. In 1835
1 bit entered the publ.c service as "auscul:1tDr" ( :

wbo were seeking to transform the Prussian :

In Dlsmarck sentiments or extreme Indigna-

one of the most active leaders of the conm

of the press , public meetings and representa-
Ions to tim kIng to oppose the further proP

The princiPles which Bismarck enounced
at thIs stage of his career are substantially
these which have guided him throughout.

messenger was none other
than the Goddess Night . The Princess can-
11escent1ed to receive her wIth pale cordiality.
"l'ut on yoVir thrkest gown , " said Night ,
"Cor I am to tale OU to visit the earth king ,

"I never walk' on the earth , " said the
IJrlncess. " 1 ca\10t \ go. "
"Yes , I know l / ' replied Night , "I have pro- ,
vided for you. I have rolled In n soft evening

The prlncem qm led and trembled as she
entered the earth-kIng's dwellIng . for Ightt
had left her ' time door oC the dark caveril.
She passed dQwr 1 : rock-hewn pathway , forgetting -
getting that'shovahked . , .
gcttng ysho"valke upon.the'earth as
she followed some-'mysterlous force that
seemed to 10 drawIng her along. With each
step she Celt less contmand of herself and
I at . lust she reached the grotto hardly know-
ling what to make of herself. The earth-
king was sealed upon n curIous chair , carved
out of the stalactItes that hung Cram the
roof. Rubles , diamonds , sapphires , emeralds
and other precious stones , highly polished
and brilliantly cut , were glittering from the
rocky walls , and a brazier , In which amethysts -
thysts were burning In , hIgh purple ' daisies .
stood In tbo' center ot the floor , that was
paved wit sold slabs of gold and silver. i
A hundred lte gnomes , In queer ( brown
tunics and leather leggings , and with pointed
caps some blue , some red , and come yellow
and green-were the only creatures In the
hall. A few held flaming torches ; the others
waited the behests of their master. These ltle
gnomes started In surprise and admiration
when the princess approached for they had
never seen any one so beautiful us this lovely
woman In her robe or dark brown velvet
without a jowel' or' bit of lace. She advanced
and stood In front of the earth-Idng.
" 'Vo have beard proud princess. " began
the earth-kIn g , and Instantly the Itt
gnomes picked up their cars and listened
attentively , as If they thought , "ncar , dear , a
princess , how very exciting. Whatever Is
going to happen ! "
" 'Ve have heard , " continued the earth-
king "that you scorn the earth-Is that
true ? "
"She scorns the earth " thought the little
gnomes and whispqrcd to each other. "How
very dreadfui ! "
"Do you know what my kIngdom repre-
seats ? " asked the earth-king very sternly.
"I knownot . neither do I care , " replied the
The little gnomes were astonIshed ' at any

I have heard that you refuse to wall upon

"Yes , I am too proud to walk on the common -

pled the prInces
"Very wel , " said the earth-ldng In a pole
but positive manner , "so bo 't ' , you dream

The black oyost of the prInces gleamed
with fire , but ahid' l tked steadily before her :
the bright Ip'wcrb ' pressed together , but
no word elcap T thni The graceful arms
hung lmp and Ifolols , only I nervous
twitching of lfri farr bands betokened the
agitation of thd 11rlndEomo woman whose
proud serenity had never before been dIs-
There was such profound silence In this
subterranean bail that the little gnomes
hardly dared to breathe ns they looked
with terror at the rigid taco of the enrth-
king , or when they watched wIth , amaze-
meat the transformation of the itrinceas ,
whom they had thought 10 beautiful.

The little gnomes were really frlghtenll :
never In al their lives had they seen such 1\
strange sight Their respect for the outh
klng's power was increased , but theIr sympathies -
pathies for the princess were excited. Again
they looked at her-but was It the princess ! 7
Oh , dear , nol Gracious heavens I She was
now on all fourl Her velvet gown had boo
come like closely clipped sealkIn that fitted .
t/htly around her , her long dark hair had
grown all over hoe face , which had now but
two distinguishing features-a long narrow
nose and two black dots for eyes , bright but

former beauty but tIme dainty hands and feet.
And she was still growIng smaller.
