Among the most sucoeasful swindlers are those who take a promissory note, for some swindle they have to sell, either drawn in sueh a manner that it may be altered orseparable, or else under the pretense that it will not be presented untilth atole is tested.

Not only the villagers came. but people from surrounding farms; and from my window I saw the pri,.st, who had come from a distance. dismounting from his horse, and answering the salu tations of his parishioners, who perimps hadt the more regardl for him because he did not lire among them, but came only once a fortnight to conduct service. I had been told that there was to be a second liturgia said at seven o'clock for the master and family; so I waited for that hour, when we all walked down to gether. On entering the church we found there a goodly number of peasants, who had not been able to get to the early ma°.

Hotels in raxony. The gLast-haus is a hotel, but of a fonrth or fifth rate quality. It is patronized by the poorer class of travelers, usually by those from country villas es and small towns, who come to the city to make purchases. It is respecta:hl,, lbut not the kindof t place for an American. There is no dining-room save the beer-hall; no ofFice save the beer-hall. The bIeer-alla is the guests' parlor, writing-room, trincing-room, recel)tion-room and sit ting-room. You rent a room up stairs at so much per day, and you buy your meals in the beer-hall at so mutch per article. You get nothing unless you order it. You must ask for bread if you want it. If you order bread and neglect to order butter you don't get the latter. If you order simply a cup of colffee you will not get any bread or batter.
