THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE-TUESDAY MOKNTN'CJ," OCTOBER 23, 1894:
THE LEGEND OF THE LEAF
Ouuint Bit of Fktiun Connected with
' Kinij Arthur's Court.
THE DOOM W GAY S1K DINAR
1 nun a Lusty Kniglit lie Is Transformed
Into a Withered Leaf, und All He
cause He Shot un Enchant
A puff of northeast wind shot over the
hill, detaching the last December leaf
from the sycamore on ItH summit and
swooped like a wave upon the roofs
and chimney stacks below. The smoke
ascending through the chimneys was
caught midway and driven back with
showers of soot and wood ash, discom
fiting tlie townsmen, who lingered by
their hearths to read the morning pa
per. The blast, its strength thus brok
en, fell Hat tipon the macadam of the
main stivet, scattering its tine dust Into
lau-sliaped ligures; then died uway
westward in eddies. Among these ed
tlies the sycanfore leaf danced and
twirled, now shooting along the ground
upon ltd edge, like a tin disk, now
whisked up to the level of the liist-story
windows. A nurse, holding up a 3-year-old
child behind the pane, called out,
pointing after the leal':
"Look there gms Sir Dinar!"
Now, the legend nf Sir llnar Is as
old us ttie Round Table, though later
touches, easily detected, have been ad
ded to it. And this Is how they -tell it:
Sir liuar was the Hist son and come
llest of King ileralnt, who had left
Arthur's Court for his own castle above
JJortscutho-ln-Koselaiid, and was burled
when his time came, over the Nare, In
Ills gold' ii boat with his silver oars be
side him. To till his seat at the Kound
Table he sent, In the lad's Kith year,
this Dinar, who in two years was made
knight by King Arthur and In the third
was turned an old man before he had
achieved a single dved of note, as is to
fur on the lll'th day after he was
dubbed knight, upon the feust of Pente
cost, there began the great quest of the
Hamgia' 1, which took Sir Lancelot
from the court. Sir Percivul, Sir Unrs,
Sir (Jawaine, Sir Galahad and the flow
er of Aithur's knights. And because
' ut ter their going It was all sad cheer at
'urnelot and heavy, empty days. Sir
l.iinur took two of his best friends aside,
both young knights, Sir Oalhatln and
Sir Ozunnu le Coeur Hardl, and spoke
s to them of riding from the court by
stealth, "for", he said, "we have many
days before us and no villainy upon our
conscience, and besides are euger. Who
knows, then, but we may achieve this
adventure of the Sancgrael!" So they
listened and Imparted it to another. Sir
Sentrail, and the four rode forth privily
one morning before the dawn and set
their faies northward.
Now, the day of their setting out was
that next after Christmas, und Is the
feast of Stephen the Alurtyr. And as
they rode through a thick wood It came
into Sir Dinar's mind that upon this
day it was right to kill any bird that
Hew, in rememberance that when Saint
Stephen had all but escaped from the
soldiers who guarded him, a small bird
had sung lii their ears and awakened
them. By this the sky was growing
white with the morning, but nothing
yet clear to the sight, and while they
pressed forward under the naked
boughB, their horses' hoofs crackling
the frozen undergrowth beneath them,
Sir l.iinur was aware of a bird's wing
ruffling ahead and let fly a bolt with
out winning his companions why he
did this, who had forgotten what morn
ing It was, und drew rein in ther as
tonishment. But pressing forward In a minute they
came upon a gerfalcon lying with long
luues hanging about his feet and
through his breast the hole that Sir
Dinar's bolt had made. While they
stooped over this bird the sun got up,
and lifting their heads they saw a green
Klade before them, and in the midst of
the glade three pavilions set, each of
red seiidal, that shone at the tlrst touch
of the morning. In the first pavilion
slept seven knights and In the second a
score of damsels, but by the door of the
third stood a lady, full' and tall, in a
robe of samite, who, as they drew near
to accost her, Inquired of them:
"Which of you four has slulu my ger
falcon?" And when Sir Dinar confessed and be
gan to muke his excuses, "Silly knight,"
said she, "who couldst not guess that
my falcon, too, was abroad to avenge
the blessed Stephen. Or dost think that
it was a hawk, of all birds, that sang a
sweet melody in the ears of his guards?"
With that she laughed, as If pacified,
and asked of their affairs, and being
told that they rode In search of Sanc
grael. she laughed again, saying:
"Silly knights all, that seek it before
you be bearded! For three of you must
faint and die on the quest; nnd you,
sir," tinning to Sir Dinar, "must many
times long to die, yet never reach nearer
by a foot."
"Let It be as God will," answered Sir
Dlimr."I3ut hast thou tidings to guide
"I haveheard," she said, "that It was
seen latest in the land of Gore, beyond
Trent water." And with her white An
ger she pointed down a narrow glade
that led to the northwest. So they
thanked her and pricked on, none gues
sing that she herself was King Url
euce's wife of Gore, and none other than
.(jueen Morgan le Kay, the famous en
chantress, who for loss of her gerfalcon
was lightly sending Sir Dinar to his
So all that day they rode, two and
two, In the 'straight alley ihe had
pointed out; and by her enchantments
she made the winter trees move with
thein, serried close on either hand, so
that, though the four knights wist noth
ing of it, they advanced not a furlong
for all their haste. Hut toward night
fall there appeared close ahead a blaze
of windows lit, and then a tall castle
with dim towers soaring up nnd shak
ing to the din of minstrelsy. And, find
ing a great company nbout the doors,
they lit down from their horses and
stepped Into the great hall, Sir Dinar
leading them. For uwhile their eyes
dazed, seeing that sconces flared In ev
Wry window und the place was full of
knights and damsels brightly clad,
and the floor shone. Hut while they
Were yet blinking a band of maidens
came and unbuckled their arms and
cast a Bliining cloak upon euch, which
was hardly done when a lady came to
ward them outot thethroug.und though
she was truly the wueen Morgan le
Fay, they knew her not at all, for by
her necromancy she had altered her
"Come, dance," said she, "for In an In
stant the musicians will begin."
Now, the other three knights tarried
a while, being weary, but Sir Dinar
stepped forward and caught the hand
of a damsel, and she, us she gave It,
laughed In his eyes. She was dressed all
In scarlet, with scarlet shoes, and the
hair lay on her shoulders like burnished
gold. As Sir Dinar set his arm around
her, with crash the merry band began,
and, floating out with him into the
dance, her red shoes twinkling nnd her
tossed hair shaking spices under his
nostrils, she leaned back a little In his
arms and laughed again.
It happened that Sir Galhaltln, lean
ing by the doorway, heard the laugh
and saw her feet twinkle like blood-red
moths, and he called to SlrDlnar. Blithe
heard nothing, nor did any of the danc
ers turn their heads, though he called
gain more loudly. Then Sir Sentrail
and Sir Ozanna also began to call, fear
ing they knew not what, for their com
rade. But the guests still drifted by as
If they were ghosts, and Sir Dinar with
the red blood showing beneath the
down on his cheeks, smiled and whirled
With the woman upon his arm.
By and by his breath came shortly
nnd he would have rested, but she de
"For a moment," he Bald, "because I
have ridden far today."
But she hung the more heavily upon
his arm, and still the music went on.
And now, gazing upon her, he was
frightened; for It seemed she was grow
ing older under His eyes, with deep lines
sinking Into her face, and the flesh of
her neck and bosom shriveling up, so
that the skin hung loose and gathered
In wrinkles. And now he heard the
voices of his companions calling about
the door, and would have cast off the
sorceress and run to them. But when
he tried his arm was welded around her
waist, nor could he stay his feet.
The three knights now, seeing the
sweat upon his face and the looks he
east toward them, would have broken
in and freed him; but they, too, were
enchantment held there In the doorway.
So, with their eyes starting, they must
needs stay there and watch it all; and
while they stood the boards became as
molten brass under Sir Dinar's feet,
and the hag slowly withered in his
embrace; and still the music played,
and the other dancers cast him never a
look as he whirled round and round
again. But at length, with never a stay
In the music, his partner's feet trailed
heavily, and bending forward, she shook
her white locks clear of her gaunt eyes,
and laughed a third time, bringing her
lips close to his. And the poison of
death was in her lips as she kissed him
upon the mouth. With that kss there
was a crash, the lights went out, and
the music died away in a wail, and the
three knights by the door were caught
away suddenly and stunned by a great
Awaking, they found themselves ly
ing In the glade where they had come
upon the three red pavillions. Their
horses were cropping at the turf beside
them and Sir Dinar's horse stood in
sight a little way off. But Sir Dinar
himself was deep In the forest, twirl
ing and spinning among the rotten
leaves, and on his arm hung a corrupt
ing corpse. For a wholedny they sought
him and found him not (for he had
heard nothing of their shouts) and to
ward evening mounted and rode for
ward after the Sancgrael, on which
quest they died, all three, each In his
But Sir Dinar remained and twirled
and skipped till the body he held was a
skeleton and still he twirled till It
dropped away piecemeal; and yet
again, till It was but a stain of dust on
his ragged sleeve. But before this his
hair was white and his face wizened
Hut on a day a knight In white armor
came riding through the forest, lean
ing somewhat heavily on his saddlebow
as he rode, and was aware that an old
decrepit man that ran towards him,
Jiggeiing and capering as if for glad
ness, yet caught him by the stirrup and
looked up with rheumy tears In his
"In God's name, who art though?"
asked the knight. He, too, was past his
youth; but his face shone with a mar
velous, strange glory.
"I am young Sir Dinar that was made
a knight of the Round Table but five
days before Pentecost. And I know thee.
Thou art Sir Galahad, who shouldst
win the Sancgrael; therefore by Christ's
power lid me of this enchantment."
"I have not won it yet," Sir Gala
had answered, sighing. "Yet, poor
comrade, I may do something for thee,
though I cannot stay your dancing."
So he stretched out his hand and
touched Sir Dinar; and by his touch Sir
Dinar became a withered leaf of the
wood. And when mothers see him
dancing before the wind they tell this
story of him to their children.
THE MODERN RIFLE.
Judge Uuin Tells How It Has Bccu Slowly
From the Honesdale Herald.
Within the writer's recollection
"smooth bore rifles" were common
enough. If a modern shot gun, small
of calibre and single barrelled, were
fitted up with a fair allowance of silver
plated "patch boxes" and the delicate
piratical looking stock of the ancient
smooth-bores, they would fairly repro
duce them. The bullets were Intended
to be spherical, but owing to the warp
ing and twisting of the moulds, were
generally imperfect. They were In
closed in a linen "patch," or covering,
and often were rammed down to the
powder by an Iron ramrod, by means
of which the "sphere," when it reached
its home had generally assumed the
shape of a vest button. The bullets
In their flight represented an Indian's
arrow equipped with no wreath of
feathers to give It a spiral motion. It
Is mostly of such guns that the roman
cers, Cooper, and the older Inhabitants
tell their big lies. The feats of accurate
shooting recounted by them have no
foundation save In their own Imagina
tions. The bullet, battered out of shape
before It rested on the powder, was sent
on its way; and as it was pressed for
ward by the explosive gas behind, It
bumped from side to side of the barrel
until its exit, where it often had lost
at least a third of Its diameter. Of
course, accurate shooting with such
guns was Impossible. Later, the smooth
bore was divided into "lands" and
"grooves," but ns they ran parallel
with the barrel they were called
"straight cuts." Still later a spiral
cut or twist was adopted which im
parted a rotary motion to the bullet,
and greatly Increased Its accuracy.
Then it became possible to "drive the
nail" once In a while at a distance of
five to eight rods, or to hit a turkey
sixty rods away,
About forty years ago conical bullets,
swaged to perfection, came Into vogue
along With steel barrels and bullet
starters. After that time, turkeys,
placed a quarter of a mile away, were
In considerable danger when good
marksmen were paying ten cents a
shot for the privilege of shooting at
them. Globe, or peep sights were then
In use. which also greatly facilitated
a correct aim. Still later the weight
of the gun and Its charge were greatly
Increased, telescopes were adued, and
It became possible to mako a "string"
In ten shots at forty rods of five Inches,
that Is counting together the distances
of the center of each ball hole to the
center of the mark or pin. This makes
an average of but one-half of an Inch
for one shut, and at such a distance
must- be considered extraordinary
Nothing better Is done today. Of
late years the tendency, especially in
military rifles, has been towards di
minishing the diameter of the bullet
and' Increasing - its length. Larger
charges of powder are also used, which
give a much more destructive force to
the bullet. The rifle given out to the
navy recently carries an elongated bul
let of but little greater diameter than
that used In the smallest revolver,
yet It goes with so much force that It
will almost blow the entire head from
the unfortunate person It strikes. The
next war will add a large chapter to
the peculiarities of fire-arms.

Stories from State Exchanges That Pre
sent Life's Curious Phases.
Mary Payne, an aged woman who
lives all alone In a room on the sec
ond floor of 28 Webster avenue, Pitts
burg, better known as "The Castle,"
spent the greater portion of last Tues
day night, Bays the Times, In a state of
agony and suspense, listening to the
weeping and walling of what she sup
posed waB the ghost of Mrs.1 Lucia
MaronI, the Italian woman who was
murdered on the first floor of the build
ing by her husband, Frank Maronl.
The shooting of Mrs. Maronl (took
place Sept. 22. She died last Saturday.
The funeral was held on Sunday, and
that very night Joe Yeppalanti, who
kept a fruit store in the same building,
claims he met Mrs. Maroni's spirit in
the back yard. He sought other quar
ters nnd now lives and has his store
at 17 Webster avenue. Mrs. Mary Ple
tro, who had a room on the second floor
of the "Castle," heard moans and groans
In the room where Mrs. Maronl was
shot during all of Sunday night, and
she has likewise sought another place
of abode. Two other Italian families,
who lived on the third floor of the build
ing, have also moved, through fright.
Mrs. Payne, about 1 o'clock Tuesday
morning, heard a footstep on the stair
way leading to her room. When the
door was reached the thing on the out
side groaned three times and cried out:
"Mary Payne, avenge me!'; Then the
footsteps were heard descending the
stairs and the frightened woman leaped
from bed and opened the door, but
could see nothing. She retired and tried
to sleep, but was aroused by hearing
three taps on the window. On look
ing In that direction she claims to have
seen the face of the murdered woman.
"I then," said Mrs. Payne, "got some
holy water and sprinkled the Btalrway
and she didn't try to come back, but
I could hear weeping and walling all
night long In the room below." Mrs.
Payne is the only occupant left In
the double tenement with the excep
tion of Mrs. AVllllam Wise, who lives in
the front. The latter Bays Mrs. Mar
onl has returned to frighten a lot of

she was alive.
An Unparalleled Escape.
From the Hazleton Standard,
Of the many narrow escapes chron
icled to the credit of the brave heroes
who rush over the rails, none can para
llel that of Jacob Habel and brakeman
James Haggerty, engaged on the Le
high and Wllkes-Barre Pan Handle
branch, leading from Honey Brook to
the Green Mountain last Saturday.
While running at the rate of twenty
miles an hour pulling a train of sixteen
cars, assisted by a pusher, bound east,
a number of cattle jumped on the track
ahead of the train. Engineer Hobel
sounded his whistle so that it could be
heard fully five miles off. The cattle
by this time had all left the track ex
cept one and she finally swept along in
advance of the rapidly running train.
Engineer Hobel's sight almost grew dim
as he observed 200 feet ahead a trestle
fifty feet In length which spans a yawn
ing chasm, for he knew that unless the
cow soon left the track she would event
ually fall between the sills and her body
left to stand as a block for his engine
and himself and crew, as well as some
workmen aboard be exposed to the
crushing fatalities of being thrown over
the trestle. He pulled his reverse back
to the last notch and the engineer of
the pusher, whose attention was at
tracted by the repeated call of down
brakes, had also reversed. The dumb
beast continued on her mad course, and
with elevated head and tail Jumped on
the trestle, her four legs falling through
the body, with the train only fifty feet
in the rear. Engineer Hobel decided not
to desert his train, and with his Iron
horse reversed applied a full head of
steam. Instantly there was a hissing
of steam and pieces of hide and hair
flew through the elements. It was a
contest between an engineer and cow,
but the latter had to yield, having been
turned and thrown Into the deep chasm,
but strange to say, was not killed, for
she Jumped to her feet after a moment
and scampered off defiantly. But for
the heroic efforts Hobel put forth, all
on board the train would have been
killed beyond a doubt.
This Man Yearned to Die.
From the Allentown Leader.
Levies M. Gerettl committed suicide
In a most deliberate maner on Thurs
day evening. The scene of the tragedy
was on the North Penn. railroad, a short
distance from Fort Washington and
Oreland stations. When train 53, leav
ing Philadelphia at 5.20, rounded a
curve about a mile above Fort Wash
ington the engineer was horrified to see
a man lying on the tracks apparently
asleep. The Intervening space between
the train and the man was too short
for the driver to stop the locomotive,
and In an Instant the monster crashed
Into the Inanimate body. The train
was stoped and the body picked up and
placed on the train and taken to Am
bler. The man was lying across the
tracks lengthways with his neck on
one of the rails. His death must have
been Instantaneous, as his head was
entirely severed from the body and the
two were found a hundred yards apart.
The body was horribly mutilated. In
the man's hat, which was found lying
at the Bide of the roadbed, was laid
a paper on which he had written his
name, saying that he was a native of
Buenos Ayres, and had been natural
ized In Philadelphia. On tire paper was
also written as follows: "I hnve no
home and no friends, nnd I will end
my existence now." The man was ap
parently 30 years of age and was well
dresed. His naturalization papers were
found In one of his pockets.
I'rcnks of Autumn Foliage.
From the Milford Dispatch.
The unusual brilliancy of the autumn
foliage this year in the Delaware and
adjacent valleys Is remarked by all who
have passed through these regions dur
ing the past few days, but the pecu
liar freaks, the different hues displayed,
are especially notable. Pictured on
one big maple tree half way up the
Bteep mountain on the Sullivan county
side of the Delaware, where the Erie
railway crosses the Btreatn at Sawmill
Kift, Is a cross formed by the tinting
of the leaves In that shape a blight
crimson, and extending from the lower
branches of the tree clear to the top.
All the rest of the tree Is still as green
as It was in June. On the opposite side
of the river, another maple stands
alone on a bold eminence. Encircling
it at the bottom branches is a broad
band of golden leaves. Its breadth be
ing uniform all the way around. Above
It is a band of green and then one of
brilliant red. Still higher Is one In
which the tints are green, red, purple
and yellow In perpendicular streaks.
Then, where the tree narrows toward
the top, It Is a mound of solid green,
surmounted by a symmetrical cone of
blazing red, like a crown of fire. The
effect of this unique massing of color
on the foliage Is beyond description. A
tree on the summit of the ledge Just
east of Shohola bears on Its verdant
front the effigy In yellow of a human
fuoe, as perfect an Image of the late
General B. F. Butler as an artist could
paint. Across the river, on the Barry
vllle hills, a huge, fiery -human hand
blazes In startling reality on another
tree. The hand is closed, with the ex
ception of the forefinger, which points
To Watch the Little Ones.
Several young ladles In London think
they have discovered a new and satis
factory plan for turning an honest
penny. The scheme Is to entertain
children, and they have banded together
for that purpose. It had been observed,
with more or less commiseration, that
children left to the care of nursemaids
dragged out a miserable sort of exist
ence in the parks and streets, as the
maids rarely gave their charges any
attention beyond keeping them from
being run over. Accordingly, theBe
young ladles want to accompany the
maid and her children on their walks
abroad at the modeBt rate of sixpence
an hour. They promise to Interest the
youngsters In what Is passing and to
promote such games and playes as will
entertain them. The Idea is worthy of
the period. Babies, even, must be stim
ulated to action, and with the nursing
bottle receive their first lessons in the
power of observation. Troy limes,
A dispute about precedure once arose
upon a circuit between a bishop and a

latter thought he should quite confound
his opponent by quoting the following

not see," said the Judge In triumph,
"that even in this passage we are men

the bishop, "you hang first."
