" t copyright by american press Asso Catlon 1911. J j to to \u2666 i to for on the left Bank of the Rhine is the ruin of one of those old castles which have stood in that Region for centuries. This particular Castle some years ago was bought by Carl Bishoff a German american who had made a lot of Money brewing lager Beer. Bishoff bought with the Castle a few pieces of Furni Ture pictures and other curiosities that were several Hundred years old and had been handed Down from one Pur Chaser to another. With the decay of the Castle and the gradual breaking up or loss of these articles All that remained had finally been concentrated in one room which when the owner was there he used for a living and bed room. In this apartment was an antique fireplace big enough to roast an of. Over the Chimney piece Hung a picture that was especially prize by Carl Bishoff. Bishoff was a admirable Amateur chess player. Indeed he had on Sev eral occasions tackled professionals with fair Success. The reason he prize the picture that Hung Over the Chimney piece at his Castle was be cause i l represented a curious position Between chess players. They were in medieval dress the one Long and thin with a Black Beard the other Stocky whose Beard was fiery red. The dark Man wore his Beard at a Point while his must chios were turned upward giving him a malignant expression. The red bearded Man was of a pleasant countenance. The picture represented him looking on the Board evidently troubled at a Prospect of being checkmate by his antagonist who was regarding him with an expression of Triumph. On a plate attached to the Frame was the name of the picture in German checkmate in six there was a legend con nested with the painting that the Man who had built and owned the Castle would some Day return to repossess it. When he came so the legend said he would assume the position of the red bearded Man in the picture and instead of being checkmate in six moves he would checkmate in the same number. Bishoff chuckled at this legend say ing that if any one could get his Castle in that Way he was Welcome to do so. Fie had studied for hours trying to discover a method by which the Short Man could save himself and had failed. considered the problem in soluble and several experts who had seen the picture had agreed with him. One autumn Bishoff who lad ran Over from America to Berlin con eluded to pair a visit to Bis Castle to see that All was ready for the coming \u25a0winter. A caretaker lived in a room that had been repaired and furnished for Bim and his wife and could pro vide what Bishoff required in the Way of refreshments. Bishoff would be obliged to spend one night in the Castle and would do so in the room Al ready described. It was a lowering afternoon when be reached the Castle Clouds hanging Low about the battlements. After Mak ing an inspection and talking Over the conditions with his caretaker Bishoff who had directed a fire be built in his chamber dined there and when he had finished pulled a big armchair up before the blazing logs. Not feeling especially Happy in his gloomy abode he directed his caretaker to make him a hot punch. This was set on a table beside him and As the hours slowly passed he prove off his loneliness with frequent rotations. Presently he fell into a dose. How Long be slept he did t know but the first thing he did know the door was opened and a Man came into the room. Bishoff looked up expecting to see the caretaker. was mistaken. The person who entered he had never seen. approached Bishoff with outstretched hand and with a cordiality that seemed More appropriate for a Host than a guest. Then he Drew a chair before the fire warmed his hands and taking a pipe from his pocket began to smoke. Well he said to Bishoff this is a dismal night without but pleasant within. I m glad you be made your self Bishoff has never been very Clear in his statements about this Man. Were it not that he has been so sure he was awake and so explicit about some circumstances connected with the visit one would be warranted in assuming that be was dreaming. At first he says it Only struck him that the Man was very queer looking very Queerly dressed and wore a red Beard. But at his Entrance Bishoff did not connect Bim with the picture. Bishoff was so astonished that for some time he made no response. In deed he could t think of anything to say. Finally he broke silence by ask in German whence come you from up the River. I have had a hard pull. Do you know i came oar being caught in that Whirlpool i was pulling along when i heard a voice singing. Glancing up. I saw a Beautiful woman looking at me. Of so tenderly 1 could not keep away from her. Turning toward the Shore i soon found toy boat was beginning to whirl. With a powerful Effort i turned and pulled Back into smooth water. The singing continued sweeter than before but i stopped my ears with a bit of cloth i found in my boat and did not look to Ward the Shore. I narrowly escaped the the Lorelei exclaimed Bishoff.

I la take some of that punch i need a bracer after my narrow taking a Mug from the mantel he poured out some of the liquor and drank it off. One would judge from the Way you conduct yourself said Olshoff that you Are at Home i what do you mean snapped Bish off angrily. Of Don t get Huffy. Let us enjoy ourselves then noticing a chessboard and chessmen on a table he added do you play chess Well there is no better Way of spending an evening. Let us have a he took up the chessboard set the Pitcher of punch aside placed the Board on the table arranged the men. Without saying by your leave he took the first move. Olshoff wonder ing at the Man s audacity lowered his eyes to the chessboard and soon forgot his astonishment in the game. saw at once that the stranger was an excellent player. The game was a Long one and for some time neither gained an advantage then Olshoff thinking he saw a Way to checkmate his antagonist moved and looked up at his antagonist As if to say ill soon have you now my Fine the stranger looked up too and with a Low laugh turned his head toward the picture of the chess play ers that Hung Over the Chimney piece. Bishoff glanced from the Board to the picture then Back to the Board. started. The chessmen were in the same position As in the painting Bish off having the advantage. And then it dawned on Bishoff that his visitor and the Man with the red Beard were one and the same. I will checkmate you in six moves said the stranger. You mean that i will checkmate you in six moves said Bishoff. This against your Castle that it is i who checkmates he Drew Forth a draft for 30,000 Marks on a Bank in Cologne. Done said Bishoff. His opponent took up a piece and moved it like an automaton. Bishoff moved again. On the stranger s fourth move something Bishoff had never counted on happened. It seemed to him that the tables were turned. Aft a a Long time he moved. The Stran Ger moved again. Bishoff who now lost his head moved for the fifth time. Checkmate said the stranger Airving. You be won the Castle is yours gasped Bishoff. The stranger chuckled. All this is very queer gasped the american staring at the Man with eyes As big As butter plates. You Are mistaken. Nothing is queer. What is is. You have Only certain relations with the world of which you Are conscious. You think the past is dead. Nothing is dead. Everything always lives but All things change. Good night. This Castle is now mine but i leave you in Possession for the that s All Bishoff remembers of that memorable evening. The next morn ing he awoke sitting in his chair. The fire had gone out and he was shiver ing. left without even waiting for breakfast and offered the Castle for Sale. An agent found a purchaser and before Bishoff returned to America he met the Man in the agent s office to Complete the Sale. nearly fainted on recognizing in the new owner his visitor who had checkmate Bim at ches3. While the papers were being made out and the signatures appended Bish off continued to stare at the purchaser who gave no sign of Ever having seen him before. The Man was in modern dress and his Beard though red was cropped close. had lost everything of his old fashioned appearance in the picture. In other words he seemed to have been taken out of the fifteenth or sixteenth Century and dropped into the twentieth. Have you Ever been in the Castle Bishoff asked him. No. I do not live in Germany. I have since my boyhood been in Busi Ness in South America. It is there that i have acquired the Means to re cover the Home of my at this Point the agent finished work ing on the papers and said Baron Becker comes into his own after Many centuries. is a Lineal descendant of the original Baron who built the Castle. It was lost some 400 years ago at a game of chess. There is a legend that a descendant of its first owner would come again into its Possession in the same Way that it was lost to the Bishoff was so affected at this in formation that he signed his receipts and hurried away without asking any questions much to his regret Ever since for he appears to be in a mud dle about the whole affair. The Only part of it about which he is certain is that he was wide awake and in his full senses when the events occurred in the agent s office. always ends his Story with the remark there is so much legend about that Rhine country that some of it must be a Battle of languages. Three or four languages strove for Mastery in ancient Gaul which is now France. German was spoken by the ,12.000 Frank invaders. Popular latin was spoken by 6,000,000 Gallo romans. Literary latin was the language of the Church and of literature. Low latin was afterwards the language of the administration. German was the first to succumb. In four centuries it ceased to be understood by the soldiers and in seventy years More it had become an object of ridicule. But it survives in More than 900 words expressing the things of government Law and War and thus forms no insignificant part of the French Lant Mare.

To get into some of them one has to use a Stepladder. The eur Henri bed always strikes the uninitiated american traveler As a huge joke. In France they commence to impress him with their height and narrowness and be looks dubiously at the enormous Turkey red Cotton Couvre pied of eiderdown which seems something like a Mountain and he wonders How he is Ever going to Bear All that extra weight on his per son. But when he has slipped be tween the sheets and the grateful warmth communicates itself to his cold Bones if it is Winter they Are surety be like icicles he discovers that it la deceptively Light and deliciously comfortable. In Switzerland the Beds attain a Little More height but it is in Ger Many that they become of such an Altitude As to necessitate a pair of Steps to mount them. One tourist finding that one leg of the Stepladder was broken solved ills difficulty by going to the extreme end of the room taking a running Start and Landing with a flying leap in the midst of tha Turkey red eiderdown. crawled in under the crocheted counterpane and was soon fast asleep. Some time in the night he became sleepily aware of a consuming thirst and started to get out of bed for a drink. A shriek followed by some swear words that even the thick headed Vermar watchman understood penetrated to the remotest chamber in the inn. I was half awake he explained afterwards and had been dreaming of standing on table Rock in the Yosem Ite. I smarted to get out of bed and began to fall.

Balancing the sexes. Singular in t it the Way nature preserves the equilibrium one of the most Subtle and interest ing problems of life according to the eminent statistician and student of heredity professor r. J. Ewart is the numerical relationship of sex and its influence upon the body politic. The woman s rights movement is in essence a mathematical and statistical problem according to. Him. There is not a gen eral Advance of woman As some sociologists assert. There is a sudden manifestation of her Power a period of supremacy and then a decline of her status. The explanation is statistical mainly. True it has always been something of a Puzzle Why the proportion of each kind apparently with Little or no underlying reason is produced in the right numbers. The argument that if such were not the Case the particular species would not survive does not re Teal to us the methods by which the s object has been achieved. That some mechanism must exist by Means of which within certain limits the number of males and females born is regulated is proved by the facts of history where we have numerous examples of wars and other social upheavals where males have largely suffered and yet within an apparently Short period of time As measured by such events a balance has again been established. The sex equilibrium May be com pared to that of a Gyroscope where the greater the disturbance of position the greater is the Force tending to re establish its natural stand while in motion.?current literature. Spanish Law. The snub it gave a British Consul in Cuba some years ago. The haphazard character of Spanish Law is Well illustrated by the following Case some years ago a Young English Sailor accompanied by an american and an Irish Sailor went on Shore at Havana. When returning to their ships they were attacked by China men. The american struck one of the chinamen on the head with a stick and the Man died. The a punish authorities did not trouble to discriminate but sentenced the three men to two years imprisonment the British Consul being unaccustomed to Spanish ways took up the base of the englishman very strongly. Tie authorities thereupon possibly to teach him a lesson tried the men Over again and gave them Twenty years each. The englishman after three years in a cuban prison during which time his companions died of yellow fever was transferred to Ceuta to serve the remainder of his time. After some years he and a fellow prisoner a spaniard escaped but they were recaptured. The food provided in the convict prison of Ceuta consists of two meals a Day of Garbanzos Chick peas occasionally Flavoured with a tiny bit of Salt pork a remarkably healthy if not appetizing diet and the englishman came out of prison in particularly Good health. After his Twenty years unjust imprison ment he married a Spanish woman.? London family Herald. Windows of the soul. Eyes Are bold As Lions roving run Ning leaping Here and there far and near.

What inundation of life and thought is discharged from one soul into another through theml Emerson. _. Number 10. The King can do no wrong. Neither can he Ever die according the British Law. It is a curious Point of British Law that the King never Dies or to put it in another Way it would be useless for any barrister to argue that the ruler s predecessors have really died since the utmost the Law will admit is that there May be a demise of the Crown mean ing of course simply that there Baa been a Transfer of the Royal authority from one person to another. It is a Maxim that the King can do no wrong and under the Law he would not be held personally responsible for any crime or tort that he chose to commit at any time. At any rate we Are assured by High constitutional authorities that the Law should actually and literally be so construed and that the statutes hold that any in jury his majesty might inflict upon & subject must be ascribed to the King s advisers. One thing seems to be cer Tain and that is that his majesty Caa under no circumstances whatsoever be arrested. Nor moreover could his goods be Dis trained or taken in execution should he fail to meet his liabilities. A quaint feature of British Law is that in theory the King is present at the Law court at every sitting though he might in Point of fact actually be on the continent or elsewhere. It follows therefore that it is impossible to non suit him As Plain Tiff should he not put in an appearance when his Case is called since the Law specifically states that the King is there. In a similar sense the King is always constructively present in parliament though he be in fact thousands of Miles from his shores. His majesty is under the Law the nominal guardian of All infants idiots and lunatics and to him is granted the sole right to print the Bible the Book of common prayer and All act of parliament in the United King Dom. It has been stated furthermore that should he so desire the King could forbid the printing of any or allot them anywhere within his dominions. Harper s. Mined the Road. The volunteers wiped out foe but it was a sad Story. I can Tell you the Saddest thing that happened during the whole War said an old negro to a group of listeners. The Story was this. One night it was reported that the town was in peril of attack from the enemy and the fight ing forces were quickly mustered. One of the volunteers conceived the idea of mining the Road and touching the fuse in time to annihilate the foe. There was plenty of powder and the scheme was adopted. The rest of the defend ers stood some on one Side of the Road some on the other ready to discharge their rifles into what might be left of the assailants. The Day passed without incident but As the. Night wore on the Strain of the situation began to Tell on the nerves of the defenders. Presently however there was the sound of hoofs on the Highway approaching rapidly. Such was the state of mind of the defenders that the sounds appeared to indicate the coming of a mighty cavalry Force. It was a terrifying moment a vivid Flash lighting up the scene As the first horseman reached the spot told that the mine had been exploded and it had done its work. There was not a vestige of an army to be seen when the smoke cleared away excepting the scattered fragments of a big Black mule. The party laughed As the old Man concluded his tale. That s a Good enough Story said one of them but what was there so sad about it it was my mule sail was the old negro s pathetic reply. Seeing a purple cow. Perfectly natural under certain conditions says an artist. Anthony Dyer Painter of water colors was explaining the matter to some possible buyers of his wares. Suppose while you Are in the coun try in summer said he you Chance upon a Holstein cow grazing on a Hill Side. Holsteins of course you know Are Black and White. The pasture la Green. Off at one Side is a Gray unpainted barn. Do you stagger with eur Rise when you notice that that cow is purple not a bit of it if it were not purple you might reasonably con sult an Oculi St that would be a sign that your eyes needed attention. But you May never have tried to figure out Why the cow is Here is the answer the complementary color of the Green pasture is red. The sight of Green always suggests red Al though we Don t realize it flooding the scene is the yellow Sunshine. The yellow the red and the Green Combine to tint the grazing Neutral coloured cow purple and purple it undeniably is As you must admit when next you encounter one under such Circum stances. Nevermore therefore May you sing with Gerlett Burgess i never saw a purple cow. I never Hope to see one. New York press. But she was t satisfied.
