against his beautiful wife. A walk in tho
Grunewald was tortured Into a lovo affair
with Baron Z a .strapping colonel in
tho Guard Lhlans. Countess von Y
was told In a scandalous letter, that her
husband had clinked, glasses in private
with Baronoss J , n beauty at court
and lady la waiting on hor majesty.
Count Z it also basely charged, had
lavished affection on a. pretty Hoi stein
chombormnld, instead of' currying homo
his lovo. So tho letters went on, libeling,
scandalizing, sotting good people by tho
All sortfl of charges and insinuations
continued to arrivo dally for members of
tho emperor's immediate circle. It was
reportod, for Instance, that Count X
had petitioned tho cuiperor for a trunsfci
to another post on account of tho charge
In tho scandalous letters. Tho interview
between tho emperor and the count, it was
given out, had been overheard by the
Princess of Ploss, who could not keep the
Bccret, and in turn gavo it away to othci
ladles of tho court circle. Count X '6

Count X had already sont his sec

prompt Intervention of tho emperor.
Moan whllo those defamatory letters con
tinued to lncreoso, somo of them dircotly
attacking tho Princess of A , a beauty
in her day, but now rather passco. She
was reported to havo spread stories reflect
ing on tho princess and a foreign aiubae
sudor accredited to tills oourt, report says
Count B of Italy a most delicate and
ticklish story. By this a direct reflection
was cast on tho omporor's own fumily and

a vilo letter camo Infamously oharglng
that tho emperor's own audinfallibloGon
oral von C had been looking deep
into tho affection of ono of tho eanpross'
own ludies in waiting. Another lettot
kindly informed tho husband of tho latter
that his wlfo had spent many agrocabla
hours on tho bespangled bosom of the gal
lant general, or vloo versa, which amounts
to tho somo thing.
Llko burning lava, all this had been boil

Many dlplomatlo changes had been made
both startling to tho principals and sur

of East Prussia and until recently grand
master of the imperial court and house
hold, Princo Stolbcrg, than whom thero
is not a higher noble In tho German list,
had resigned, it was said, on account of
certain political manipulations both ques

. Finally Baron von Kotzo was arrested;
but, strangely enough, even during tho
baron s incarceration, the fatal letters con
tinned to arrivo In tho imperial camp with
undiminished regularity. The baron was
acquitted after a secret rvhd and has re
tired permanently from politics, thorough
ly disgusted with the vicissitudes of life
at court. .

jumped ont of tho kornol. Tho old eouplo
rejoiced jit sight of tho boy nnd named him
Momotaro, or Littlo Peachling, because ho

Japanoso fairy tnlo that is in a manner
suggeative of our "Jack the Giant Kill

Mamotaro grew big and lusty, nnd tho
old eouplo bestowed great euro on his edu

strength, and bo then determined to cross

seize their riches and live In caso.

hurried toward tho island. Momotaro and
his throe followers broko through tho gate
and found themselves in tho midst of a
great multitudo of devils. Momotaro con
quered them all and then had a lively tus

came at Momotaro with an iron club, hut
ho was orushed and tied with a ropo. Then
the chief of the devils sued for peace, whllo

A Miraculous Escape
This is how Frederick Simons of Phila
delphia describes his romarkublo experi
ence in being run down by an express
train: "Tho road lending tip to tho truck
la on incline, and my horso necessarily
slowed up. Just ns ho got an tho tracks
I heard tho nolso of tho train, and looking
out 60W it earning. It was only 80 feet
away, and to mo it looked as big as the
frolghthoiiBO. I must havo instinctively
pulled my horso back on his haunches,
nnd tho engine struck him obout'tho-middle
of his body. Ho was thrown about CO
foet and horribly crushed and mangled,
whilo tho earrings and I landed about 40
feet away. I was thrown up In tho air,
and tho carriage, which was a surrey bug
gy, started to rovolvo. Tho sensation re
minded me of what a man must feel who
is being rolled over and over In a barrel.
In somo way I managed to stay In the car
riogo. For a momwit I lost consciousness.
When tho carriage landed, I fell facedown
and was apparently nil right. Bystanders
hardly knew what had bcoomo of mo, but
hastened to overturn tho carriage, wliioh
was lying over mo. They oxpected to find
mo lying dead, but to their surprise I got
up and walked around."
