Prince Frederic Sehwarze'nberc:.
son of the celebrated Field Marshal

his- encounter .with the notorious
robber-Haburak. I he prince once
accompanied a lady from Hungary

lers were thus compelled to seek
shelter for the night in the inn of
Aggtclek, a h-ding-plaL-e !of ill note 1
for l robbers. The c:jrngc halted
before the house, and the Servant in
quired whether room could be af
forded. The publican "'replied, thai

trvated the prince not; to remain ;
but ji bad grown da: kv the-raiti was
pouring down. "the horses Were worn
u!, and the steep 'descent ofthe
load w :is. so dangerous-that it'"'wk
most hazardous to' ' proceed. The
prince tried-to reassure the lady ; so
she'loeked herself up in the room j
assigned to' her. -Her companion,
wrapped in his white oHicer's cloak,
under which he kept, his pistols in
reatl ness, stepped into the apart
ment where . the robbers were as
sembled, and- sat down at the fable
lacing the window -whilst his" ser
rant; likewise armed,. kept watch
orttside the liouse, close td the win
dow, on the alert, in case his master
should want any aid. - -
The 'company contested ol about
ten . or; twelve meii. Their rifles
leaned against the wall: their axes
lay upon the board, on which stood
the wine jugs. They 'drank, sang
and stalked o er ' their adventures,
and did hot take any notice of he
newly arrived guest. The prince
mixed in their conversation uutil it
had grown late. Suddenly he rose,
called the publican, threw a gold
coin on the table, and said : j. '
; "This is for the wine these - good
folks have drunk; they 1 afe: my
guests. But now,"' he continued, ad
dressing the robbers, "it is time to
sleep. - In the .adjoining room is a
sick lady; the entertainment has
lasted long enough ; I cannot allow
any one longer to occupy this room,
or disturb the lady's rest by any;
noise.' , .
At this imperative command one
of the robbers jumped from his seat,
and contemptuously laughing cried
but: 'Does the gentleman fancy
that because he has a carriage' and
four? and plenty of money m his
pocket, he has the right to command
9'
An uproaf followed. The men
vociferated, "Wo are poor ladsj and
therefore, we are masters here." ,
"We v are no" timorous peasants,
. i
who take off our hats to every gen
tleman." "
We have yet money, and credit
enough to swallow a draught when
we are thiriy! J

than , we are." j . ".'
"We-will not be ruled."
All this was' almost simultaneously
uttered, with a loud tumult from all
' '11 t -'
sides. All the robbers hatLgot up.
The prince mechanically caught hold
of his pistols, and threw oft his
Cloak. : ' . .44 : 'I '-.y j-.-- :'r .

claimed with dignity, uYou are
robbers, ! am a f soldier, ami fear
neither the mouth of a rifle nor the
edge of an axe." - J .
"During" this uproar a man of mid
dling height and , strongly-marked
features, had risen from the bench
besidp jthe stovei "wliere he had
quietly sat during the whple time,
without iaking'of the wine. He now
said in a commanding tone :
; "Silence."
The. robbers grew speechless at
this -order, and again sat downlothe
tnble.
"Mr. Officer," continued t)ie man,
IS
'don't think that you frighteiOus. I
too "have been a soldier, and have
mostiprobably smelt more powder
than you ever ' did. I am Ilaburak.
If I desired to. do Vou! ahv.harm a
single': whistle would suffice., il-he
table at which you have sat would
be overthrown," the caudles 'extin
guished, and before you were awaie
of what was going on you would be

her to the adjoining room. We

the couch therojvlow on the-damp
oak leaves is hy niea'ns comfortable.
Friends, let us go," he V called to
his men. They took up their arms
and went. -I L
T'he prince was greatly struck by
the whole proceeding. He did not
entirely trust the.' robber's words;
and relieving his servant; they passed
up and down, thus keeping watch

ion The weather had cleared up,
and' only the puddles in the lanes
and the drops of rain glistening on
the branches reminded them of the
clouds of the previous day. After
they had ridden about an hdur they
suddenly heard the discharge of a
rifle close to them in the woods.
Ilaburak stepped) forth from the
bushes, and bid the coachman "halt."
, The horses stopped ; the prince
drew forth his pistols. But Ilaburak,
without heeding j. his threatening
mien, rode up to the carriage door
ond said : I - ' . ;
"Wc yesterday sacrificed ; bur
comfort that the , rest of this lady
shbulil not ' be disturbed. Now I
will see yhether it was Worth' the
trouble." -
"With these words he lifted 'the
veil - which
hung
down from the
ooked for an in-
lady's bonnet, and
stant into "her
face. . The lady
blushed, and the robber' said : "She
is really very pretty." ' ;
He turned round, plucked a wild
rose from. . a bnslrelose at hand, and
offered it to the lady with these,
words : . j . j -
"Accept this rose kindly as a
keepsake from the poor robber
Ilaburak ; and if yoti sometime hear
that he has been hanged, pray an
Avie Marie for his soul.5': ; '
The lady -took the rose, and the
Tobber. quickly vanished.!
Two years later, newspapers rela
ted that 'the robber Haburak. l)ad
been caught ; that he had been tr ed
at the assizes in Torna, convicted of
desertion and high way. robbery, and
hanged, i i . : ' '
WHAT'S THE PRICE OF '
- EGGS ? :
On a Saturday aftcrnocn as the
Fakir of Ava was walking down
Main Street, he met a
broad-
brimmed cbimtryman from
the
Punker settlement, with a basket of
under his arm.! The: Fakir
stopped .hi 11 arid looked into his
basket.

"Let me try a single one here's

prpceeded to crack it, when, to the
astonishment of the Dunker, out
tolled p dozen shining half-eagles.
Placing them' in his pocket, and
handing out another dime, the Fakir
remarked
"I'll try another if you please,
sir.
This too, he cracked open, with
tlie same phenomenen of half-eagles.
1 Til take all your eggs," said the
Fakir, apparently much excited.
; "NoJ youOon't" said broad-brim,
who had just recovered his .speech;
and spreading the iolds of his wool
len "warmiis" over the basket, he
made tracks down the street as far as
bis burthen, the amplitude of his
breeches, and his hobnailed shoes
would allow him.
lie has doubtless ascertained by
this time that ''eggs is eggs,"j howev
er much appearances may sonietimes
be against the fact. 1 - ,

ever recorded is that of the death of
the two daughters ol JVlrs. j Amelia

German in a St. Louis school, by
being suffocated ' in a trunk. The
-little gipls have for a year past been

Mrs. Moench spends her vacations
on the farm, and 'was prepared to
go to her husband and children ini
mediately upon the closje. of school
Mrl; Moench had gone to Dixon, and
his littleIgirls called cheerfully after
hirn to hurry back, and it he wrote
to thpiri mamma to send their love
i " ; i i
On his return he was surprised not
to see them awaiting him. He call
ed bit received no ans wer. He went
into the house and saw the tray of
the trunk setting on the floor. A
horrible fear flashed on his mind.
He opened the . trunk and found the
two little-girls ; the. younger, who
was underneath, was evidently past
all hone. - but' the elder was still
warm and limp. Not a neighbor
was within hall a mile. The; father
dashedrcold water on the children,
then rubbed them with vinegar, and
made every effort to restore1 anima

There is a new guide to the inter
pretation of dreams. An
paper puts it thus : '
riglish
"v; 'i
To dream of a millstone v around
your neck is "a sign of what you may
expect if you get a'n extravagant yife.
To sec apples in a dream betokens
a wTedding, because where you
fitfd
apples you may reasonably expect tof
find pears. . ) ;
When a young lady dreamsg of a
coffin, it betokens she should instantly
discontinue lacing hertays tightly
and always go warmly, shod in wet
weather. , , .- '";.'-. j 4
1 To dream that your nose is red at
the tip is an intimation that you had
better leave off brandy and water.
To dream that you are lame is a
token that you will get into a hobbie.

WHAT KILLS.
. In the school, as in the world, far
more rust out than wear out.. . Study
is most tedious and wearisome to
those who study least.'; "Drones al
ways have the hardest lime. , Grum
blersmake poor scholars, and their
lessons are uniformly , "hard and too
long." The time anxl thought expen
ded in shirking would be ample to
master their .tasks. .. Sloth, gorman-.
dizing, and worry kill their thousands
where over-study harms one: A
r - i w
curse rests on 1 azm ess and gl uttony.
By the very constitution of our be
ing they are fitted to beget that tor
por, and despondency whih chill
the blood, deaden the nerve, enfeeble
Clio muscles,, and derange the whole
vital machinery; Fretting,, fidget
ing, enriiii, and anxietyJare among
the most, common causes of disease.
On the other hand, high aspiration
and enthusiasm hel p digestion and
respiration, and send, an 'increased
supply lof vital energy to all part-s

invigorate the whole system, and jfi
one into a purer atmosphere, above
the reach of- contagi9h. The ' lazy
groan most over their "arduous
duties," w.hile earnest wbrkei-s talk
little about the exhausting labors of
their profession Of all creatures
the sloth would seem to be the-rriost
worried and, worn. '
Balloon ascensions will form one
feature of the Paris Exposition, to
which the young folks are looking for
ward with- eager interest. The bal
loon, whish is in process of; manu
facture at the Tuil cries, will be the
largest in the 'world. The car will
contain fifty. passengers, and has a
restaurant attached, ? A wire rope
about 800 feet long is to; be secured
to the bottom of tlie-car, so that it
may .always be under control. ;
