I It was toward the eud id" November.
The Imperial Garden of Vienna wa> de
erted; a sharp north wind was whirling
the crir-p saffron colored leaves about, and
the ro;-e hushes were sad looking aud hrok
en. with their branches trailing in the
mud. The main pathway, however, being
covered with gravel, was dry and clean, and
although very desolate the garden was not
without a certain melancholy charm At
the end of a long arcade was an indistinct
horizon of liilln, almost drowned in bluish
vapors and evening mists, while on the
other side the view extended to the I'rater
and the Danube. -It was a walk tit for ft
A young man wius striding up and down
this path impatiently. His dress was
handsome, though a little theatrical, eon-
of a black velvet coat trimmed with
gold braid and bordered with fur, panta
loons of gray tricot cloth and high boots
with tassel.-. lie was about -7 or lis year.,
old, Li - features were pale and regular and
hiii expression was otic of shrewdness,
while irony •-eined to lurk in the corners
of his mouth. At the university, which lie
seemed to have left but recently, for he
wore the student's cap, he niu.it have giv
en the '-Philistines" a great deal of trouble,
and probably . hone in the first rank of the
burttchen an 1 '•foxes. '
The very short . pace to which hecouliu
ed his walk bowed thai he wa awaiting
some one, probably a woman, for the liu
perial Garden iu November was hardly a
suitable place for business appointments.
And indeed it was not. long before a young
trirl appeared at the end of a path, a black
silk hood covered Iter rich blonde hair,
which the ev cuing damp had partly tin
curled; her skin, naturally as while as vir
gin wax. bad received from biting cobl the
hue of a ISenpal ro e, and she was wrap
ped in a able trimmed mantle which inadi
her look charmingly like the tatule of La
Frileu c. Shi- v, as accompanied by a black
water spaniel, a mo t convenient chape
rone. "and one whose indulgence and di
cretion could bo relied upon.
•'Jo I think, iteiaricb," said tln- lovely
Viennese, as she look the young nun's
arm, "1 was dressed and ready to go out
more than an hour ago, and my aunt
would nut finish her ncrmon on the perils
of the waltz and the recipi'S I'or Cliri timi::
cake. At last I got away on the pretense
of buying sonn; gray guitei, of which 1
have not the slightest need. It is for your
;tke I tell all these fibs; I always repent
of them, and straightway begin again. oh,
HeiArich, what cau have induced yon to
go on the ,-tage alter studying theology
at Heidelberg.' My parents like you,
and we might have been married by thi«
time, and, instead of meeting secretly un
der the bare trees of the Imperial Harden,
we should be -itting together iu front of a
line Saxony stove iu a cozy parlor talking
about our children'* future. Would not
that be a happy lot?"
"Yes, very happy, Katy," lie repled,
pressing her plump arm underneath the
satin and furs; "but what can I dot The
theater has an irreaistable attraction for
me. I think of it all day and dream of it
all night. I long to live in the creations
of the poets. I seem to have twenty dill
erent existences, for every new part 1 take
ii a new life for me; I feel every pas->ion
| that 1 portray. lam Hamlet, Othello and
Charles Moor in turn, and, while I can lie
all of these I cannot easily resign myself
to the humble lot ol a village pastor."
"That may be true," said the young girl,
"but you know very well that my parents
will never accept a comedian as their son
"No,certainly not an obscure comedian,''
he said, " poor, wanderiug actor, who i
but the toy of managers and I In- public;
but, however particular they may be, they
will accept a great artist covered with
applause anil fame iiuil paid better
than a minister of state. When I

the astonished faces of the pa -en and

"I suppose not, but who knows that you
will ever reach that point' You have tal

must alfio have luck. I'.y the time you
have become a great actor our youth will
have pa" cd away, and will you rare to
marry your old Katy when you are :ur
rounded by the gay, brilliant beanties of
the theater?"
''The future of which I peak," replied
Heinrich, "inearer than you think. I
have made .in o.cellent engagement at the
theater of the Port de Carinthie, "and the
manager i o plea..o«l with my rendering
of the purl, that be ha given me a gratuity
of L'.OIHI thaler..."
"I coufes.," aid the girl adly, "that I
do not like to think of your taking the part

"I am glad of that, ' she an Acred • for

fear that this rob* i ■ mor** profitable for
your dramatic fame than for your HOUI'H

There were a great many gu csts at the
inn that evening. The society there was

and ijoya combined coll hi not produce a
more whimsical collection ol charoeterio

Ilcinrich, the young aclor, entered the
•pai ions saloon ami vveiil toward a table
where were already three or four youths
chatting merrily. "Alt, here i our Hcin
rich. Take care of yourselves, friend 110I —
lo iiuui babel in coruu!" cried the eldest of
the party; and then he added, "Do you
kuoiv you looked really diabolical last

would haye though that the fleinrich who
drink - beer just as we do, and dot s not di .
■lain a slice of cold ham, could put on such
a wicked, sardonic air, and make the w hole
house shudder'
"That shows what a great actor he is, '
said another young man; "there is no art
in playing a part that suits one's own char
after, but it requires geuin., for a coquette
to assume an air of sweet simplicity."
lleiniich took a seat at a table, and with
a very modest air ordered a glass of mixed
wine, and the couverriatiou was continu
ed iu the same strain, the young actor re
ceiving compliments from every side.
"Ah, if Wolfgang von Uoethe had but
seen you!" said one; aud added, "I am
: ure you have the cloven foot—let us see.
The other guests of the inn, attracted by
all thi acclamation, looked curiously at
Heinricb and were delighted to have an op
portunity of neeing such a celebrity as he.
Some young men who-had been at the un
iversity with him, but who hardly knew
hi ; name, came up and shook his hand a
warmly as if they were hi, most ihtimute
friends. The prettiest of the female wall/
ers cast glances of tender interest at him
from their velvety blue eyes as they pass
One per ion ulnar seemed l<> take no part
in the general enthusiasm. He was sit
tiiif at a table near I)}', with hi* hewl turn
ed in the opposite direction. and was ab
sently drumming a military march with
bis fingers on the crown of his hat, and
uttering from time t" time a very dubious
humph! His appearance was peculiar, al
though at tint night he might be taken lor
an hone it citizen of moderate menus, llis
eyes were gray, but with a greenish tinge,
and they -ceincd to shine with phopher
<• i cut light like tho.'' of a cat; his pale,
thin lips, when parte*, di played two rows
of very white teeth, pointed and far apart
which pun him a ferocious, almost canni
hat exprc.i. ion, while his long, curved fin
ger nail looked like i lawn. These pecul
iarities, however, were idi-.ervable only to
per "in who plain ed at him suddenly, Tor
to the eyct that looked fixedly at him lie
presented the ordinary ea y appearance of
a retired inerehant, and one woubl lie as
toiiishcd al one's elf for having uspected
ucb a harinle i looking person of any vil
lainy. T!ie young Heinrieh wa . secretly
annoyed by thi man' e\ ident indiirerelu e,
and bis di. dainful idlence .'eemed to take
from tin- value of the admiring prai. es
with which bi own companians were over
whelming him; it WIIM the ilence of the
counoiiir, who cannot lie deceived, by
appearand-'and who ha seen the In* .1. of
eyefytbing in bis time. Atmayer, the
warmest of lleinricli's admirers, noticed
thi i per on': cold silence and aildri -ed
him defiantly, raying
"I.i it not true, ir, that no actor could
play the part of Mcphisphcle belter than
our friend hen-'
"Humph!" said the 'tranger, grinding
his i harp teeth together, while his blue
green eyes Hashed. "Mr. Heinrieh ii a
young man of talent I admire liini groat
ly; but. in order to play hi part well he has
much to learn." Then, turnine to the ac
tor, be -aid suddenly: "Have yon ever
seen the devil?" putting the question ill
mii. h a i liitrp, mocking toil' that a < hill ran
through his hearer- "That i absolutely
e - ential," he l oiitiuued, "tor the prii'ect
rendering of the part. The other night I was
in the theater of the I'orte de Carintlile,
and I wad not satisfied with your laugh—
it wa* a laugh of mere inischievioua al the
mii t. This is the way you should dolt
my dear little Mr Heinrieh."
And Instantly, by way of example, he
gave a sharp, brill peal of langhtcr that
ua: o main ion i and anionic that the
music and the daucers topped <imultaue
-011. ly. The laugh la ted fur cVrral mill
utes and made the windows rattle, und
(he young men, although they were "truck
with dismay could not refrain from join
in: in. When they recovered tbeinn-lv
and looked around, the room wa - still ring
iiitf with the echoes of that mocking laugh,
but the I ranger wiw nowhere to be ~een. ,
Tlii- lie it evening when lleiori. h ap|»-tir

of Ihe orchestra 'cats the my ferioiH gnc I 1
of the Double Headed Eaple. \t every '
word the young actor uttered the -Iranger I
hook hi head. cowled, nia ked his (
tougue again t bis palate and gave • very
sign <if impatience and di -approval.
"Had, bad !" lie was beard to mutter, in |
in an undertone, while his neigblmr . nr
prised at hi. liehavior ftpplnnded wildly
and aid to each other : • That geiitlemrm
is bard to plea.*'."
At the end of the first act the ttranger
r«. as if he had takeu a sudden n oln
tion. aud, cliiubing u\« i the balustrade in
to the orchestra, passed rapidly between j
ilie big ilrtini and Hie gong ami finale |
through the doorway under the -tage, |
lleiniich, while waiting for the next act to j
begin, was walking up and down a pa ag>- i
behind the -.cenes, and on turning round
he -aw. to hi dismay, a person dressed
exact I v oj be wa>, in red and black, but
with a greenish glitter in bis eyes.* a sar
donic « xpre siou, and sharp, white, separ
ated teeth. The young man conhl not but
recognize the unknown ol the inn, or
rather Satan himself, for it was he.
"Ah. ba, my voting friend," cried the
intruder, "you want to play the devil, do
yon f Let me tell you that you cut such a
poor ligure iu the act that I cannot
allow you to continue. Von v J give

Mis biting, vcliomoli. and really dia

I lie audience.
"Ilcinrich is the right vein to-night,'
was heard on all sides. What produced a
great effect wa ihi neering laugh, hai b
a., the gruting of a . av., bitter a - the
of the damned blaspheming the joy of
partuli e. Sever before bad nch depths uf
liemli liness been portrayed upon that
tuge ; the people trembled and panted with
emotion. I'bo phoreiicent sparks flashed
from the finger of the terrible a> tor: the
light from the chandelier grew pale; the
footlights burned lurid red, and the mnell
of sulphur tilled the hall.
The audience was in a delirium, and
thunders of applause greeted every en
lelue ulleied by the wondellill Al. plli to
pheles, who more I ban once substituted
Holds of hi oVVIi for Ibo•- ol the poet.
Little Katy, to whom Ueiniieli had cut a
box ticket, could hardly recognize lor be
loved, and she was filled with a Vajjtie pre
sentiment, foreseeing mi fortune with that
power of divination which love, the soul's
ecoiul fight, he tow.
The performance ended Willi a tempest
ofenthu ia m. and directly the curtain fell
the people called wildly for Alephi topbelc
to come out. The latter, however, did
not appenr, and after a long "enreh an at
teuilnnt canin to the manager and aid
tluil Mr Heinricb hail been found lying
iineon eious in the sub cellar, where he
must have fallen through a trap, lie was
taken home, and those who undressed him
were itatohiubed to .-oe on his shoulders a
nifmber of'deep -cratches like the marks of
a tiger's cluws.
His illness was a long one, and as soon
as be was convalescent the theater mana
ger made him •» brilliant offer, but he re
fused to uct again, for lie did not care to
risk bis soul n second time ; moreover he
knew that his acting could never equal
that of his dreadfnl substitute.
Al the end of two or three years, baviug
come into a modest inheritance, Ilcinrich
married his pretty Katy, and the two sat
together before a Saxony stove iu a cozy
parlor, and talked of their children'*
Theatergoers still speak with admiration
of that marvelous performance, and are
astonished at lleinrich'H caprieiousncss in
abandoning the stage at the very moment
ol hi t triumph.— The Fi'of.h.
I ho Troublesome Sparrow.
That immoral and impudent, bird, the
sparrow, is in trouble again, lie is a bird
of notoriously bad character. lie is a
lighter, a thief, aud an incurable glutton.
The indictment which the ('hosier Farm
er.i' Club has brought against him i enough
to make more self re-pectilig birds thank
their stars that they are not as he. The
Cheshire farmers have been calculating
that he eats one tenth of all the grain that
is grown in the country, and the cost ol
killing hiui k about a pound a thousand.
If a farmer want to oxteruiiuate birds, he
mint expect to be at charges for the alt to
put on their tail —which in thi ease bap
pens to be saltpeter, lint the accusation
of gobbling up the grain which ought to
go into the barn is more serious. In the
winter, too, the sparrows go into the farm
yard and eat the grain intended for the
poultry and feed at the pig trough with
the pigs—which is surely a mark of great
intelligence on their part. Still the <he
hire farmers must remember that all the
wojld is not agreed as lo the ingrained im
morality of the sparrow. There arc those
who believe that they con nine an euor
IIIOUS number ol notion < inset Is when
the re it no grain to lie bad, and that con
e<|iicut)y they do as much good as barm.
That the sparrow i too numerous is most
likely; but wo need not have him extcimi
nated. lie is . o cheerful, no "cocky," and
so generally irrepressible, that life—in
lov.ps, at least,—Would be appreciably sail
der without him.

The question being raised as to whether

The maxim a small farm well tilled" is
au old one, and tbe frequent advice to
cultivate small areas is excellent, but this
rule is one that is applicable to herds and
docks to a certain sense. To maks a
small farm profitable tbe land must be
brought up to the highest degree of fer
tility, and it must bo well fed if it is ta
produce heavily. The quality of the soil
is the prime factor to be considered before
the venture is made. If farmers culti
vate too much land they also keep larger
herds and flocks than is necessary to SUC
CORS. 11 is the well bred herdd that gives
tbo farmer a profit, and the failure to make
stock raising pay is duo to the keeping of
large numbers of unprofitable animals iu
stead of concentrating the capital and labor
on u small aud bettor class of stock.
The first item that enters into tbo cost
of an animal is its maintenance, which in
cludes the fond necessary to keep it alive
without increase of weight. This cost
must alway;: be borne, under all conditions,
and iu many cast-sit is tho source of tbe
loss. The greater the coat of providing
the auitnal with warmth (bodily) and the
matorial for repair of tissue, tbe smaller
will be the profit fiom the unitnal unless it
can give a return proportionate to tho cost
of maintenance, and greater, in compari
son with other antnials in the herd. This
rule applies also to tho soil, for the cost ol
maintenance of the soil (that is, to avoid
loss of fertility) must be estimated iu the
cost of tlii: crop. Tbe profit derived by
the farmer iu greater iu exact proportion
to the surplus over tbo total cost, which
iu> hides uot onlj the uiaiiiteuuuce of the
animal but the capital and labor invested
in its management.
While a large herd will give a larger re
turn, under equal conditions, than a smoll
oue, yet the profit depends on the anmnnt
from each member of tho herd. It is,
therefore, more profitable to keep a few
animals that pay than to keep large
numbers at a loss, it is more profitable to
transfer the capital invested iu a large
herd that does not pay lo a small herd,
thereby concentrating the efforts on a few,
just as a small plot of land may be made
profitable by applying on il tbe whole of
the manure. The quality ol the animals,
their capacity lo convert food Into salable
products and the lessening of the cost, and
r pei.-tally of tho cost of maintenance, are
to be chiefly considered, and when these
matter; are fairly given tbo attention of
the farmer he will find that he has been
too extravagant in attempting to do that
which Is sometime* rotialdered economical.
