Money Paid to Royal Rulers. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 18 May 1888

Sloney Paid to Royal Rulers. In an interesting article on ' The Emper or's Income, " published in the Ans burger Abcndzeiiung, Herr Karl Hermann gives some details respecting the revenue of other sovereigns and Presidents. It will surpiise a great many to learn that as German Emperor Wiliiam I had no income at all. True, the Ecichstag voted for die Emperor a sum of 2,600,000 marks (£130,000) in the budget for 1887-S8. Eut this is not a source of income for the Emperor at all, but merely serves as a fund at his disposition, for granting pensions and gratuities. Consequently, the imperial dignity in Germany is an unpaid, honorary otiice. What income the German. Emperor dues derive he receives as Bong of Pi udsia. As such, his revenue amounted, for 1S87-S, altogether, to 12,210,296 marks (.£610,955), ot winch 7,779,296 marks were taken from the income derived from public lanas and forests and tfce remainder (4,500,000 marks) voted by the Prussian Chambers. Out of this 12,250,000 marks,...

PERSONALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 18 May 1888

PERSONALITIES. William D Howells, the novelist, was a type-setter, and no wan Bret Harte, and so was Mark Twain. E. H. Stoddard, the poet, was a blacksmith, Prank Stockton was an engraver, and John Gr. Whittier was a farmer, with slight interruption, until he was nearly thirty years old. The Crown Prince Ifieholas of Russia, who is now seventeen years old, is described as an affectionate, warm-hearted boy, who is a great favorite with' everyone, and who possesses democratic notions. At the same time he has his father's will, and does not like to have his plans interfered with. Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe has been very feeble of late, and rarely writes anything- but brief letters to her friends. She did, how ever, for charity's sake, contribute a few linen to a paper published during the progress "f a Fair iii Hartford. The contribution was >.iort but amusing: ' "When I was eightyears of age 1 had a favorite cat of which I was very fond Pass was attacked with fits, and in her parox...

Ijiving JSonarelis of Sarope. ONE QUEEN, THREE EMPEBOES, OXE SULTAN THIETEBN KINGS AUB WO PRESIDENTS. Queen Victoria, now holds a place among the oldest sovereigns of Europe, says the New York Sun. Iu May of next year she will be seventy years of age. She has been on the throne for half a century. She enjoys good health and bids fair to reign and live for many years yet. If she attain the age of her grand father, George III, she will wield the scepire (barring accidents) up to the yea^ 1901. If at that time her son, the Prince of Wales, be comes King, he will have reached the ripe age of sixty years, and his tendency to baldness will doubtless have become more marie i than it is now. . The new German Emperor Frederick is fifty-seven years of age, and his Empress, the daughter of Queen Victoria, is forty eight. Judging from photographs, he does not closely resemble his departed father in the face, but she looks very much like her mother. The King of the Belgians, Leopold II, is fifty...

POETRY. THE HAUNTED LAND. A Parable. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 18 May 1888

POETRY. .i-flHE HAUNTED IiAXD. j4 Parable. About Sue land moves many a sad-eyed ghost, And there is sound of weeping- all night long And sounds by day of melancholy song; Weird is the land, and beautiful, almost; But 'wrecks of mighty ships strew thick the coast, Though now the sea looks innocent of wron^r, And low, soft waves the deep eea-caverns throng, Where K>rmR sing, and Death 'waits at his post. Mtge, rise, my soul, that we may strive with fate And flee the baneful beauty which delays XJb through -warm, weeping- nights and hectic dayfi: Spread sail and steer, -where fresh life may await, jBut ah, what words sigh down these trackless ways What words but these: ' Too late-Too late-Too late? -Kg Ote late PiiiU# Sourke Sfarston, in Independent.

THE PETERSBURG CEMETERY. TO THE EDITOR. In perusing your paper of the 4th inst.

WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 18 May 1888

WIT AND WISDOM. Enthusiasts "without capacity are tb.e really dangerous people. People who never have any time are the people who do the least. It is harder to avoid censure than to gain applause. The manner of conferring benefits is often as material as the benefits theuinelve§. Imaginary evils soon become real ones by indulging our reflections on them. Hon< r'n a sacred tie, the law of kings, the noble iiiiijd'a dibtiiigutohing perfection. Envy is blind, and knows nothing, except how to appreciate the excellence of others. Words ar<3 as they are taken, and things are as they are used. There are even cursed blessings. He who saith that there is no such a thing as an honest man ycu may be sure is himself a knave. You cannot dream yourself into a char acter ; you must hammer and forge yourself oue.
