Samantha at Saratoga: or, ‘Flirtin'" with
Fashion, by Marietta Halley, illustrated by
Frederick Upper. Hubbard Brothers. Phila
The author iu this volume has presented
some very humorous pen pictures of scenes
at Saratoga. In preparing the material for
it Miss Hoiley went to Saratoga and spent
an entire season, with eyes and cars open,
and with brain and ]*'neil vigorously at
work. She went in her famous assumed
role of Josiah Alien’s wife, her imaginary
Josiali at her side, with his characteristic
blunders, fau-rixis. and quick, boylike en
tliusias m. As Samantha Allen. Miss Holley
is observant, unsophisticated, outspoken,
and sound to the core on every question of
propriety. Such a couple in the whirl of
Saratoga would certainly develop many
remarkable situations and utter many
funny comments. It is here the hu
mor of the book arises. Plain, back
country, village life, and gay, artificial
Saratoga life are so wide apart, that each
side becomes ludicrous to the other. These
ludicrous, laugh-provoking contrasts are
the dominant features of Miss Holley's
book. To these mirth-making presenta
tions of the author the artist’s pencil has
addetl a rich entertainment. Over a 100
drawings have been made especially to illus
trate the text by Frederick Opper, the lead
ing artist of Puck. Burt Wilder, too, has
done a share in embellishing this attractive
book. These artists make their pictures
talk, and between the text and the talk of
the pictures the reader looks and laughs and
laughs and looks again.

ber of excellent illustrations and a variety

THE REAL CODE.
German University Duels Described
by One who had been in 27 of Them.
M om the St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Several days ago a gentleman was seen in
the corridors of the Southern Hotel who at
tracted the attention of all who chanced to
lie in that favorite gathering place at the
time. He was a tall, broad-shouldered
young man of from 20 to 23 years of age,
with an erect bearing that unmistablv in
dicated a military training and a style of
dress that betraved a foreign origin. But
the peculiarity that attracted attention was
that bis face was seamed and furrowed by a
multiplicity of scars running iu all direc
tions—some mere lines, others deep gashes,
and others unsightly ridges of flesh. *4.
Globe-Democrat, reporter engaged him in
incidental conversation as he watched a
game of billiards lietween two local exjiorts,
and after exchanging a few common-places
ventured to question him concerning the
origin of the scars that caused his otherwise
handsome face to resemble a railroad may
of a thickly settled portion of the country.
“I find that my face has attracted more
attention siuco 1 came to this country than I
ever supposed it would,” was the reply,
“and if I had realized the amount of curi
osity my appearance would excite I doubt if
I would have had the courage to cross the
oceon But it cannot, be helped now, and I
have no objection to explaining the cause of
the cuts and scars you see on my face To
begin with, my name is Bernhard Nah
macher, and 1 am a native of the city of
Halle, in Prussia. At 1!* years of age I en
tered the University of Leipzig, and at once
joined the Corps Thuringia. If a German
student desires to have any standing among
his fellows, be must belong to one of the
fighting corps. In their ranks are to be
fouud nearly all the young men of good fam
ily, and those not members of one or another
of these organizations are classed together
under the title of savages, and are regarded
as beneath contempt, and considered even
lower than the despised Philister, or trades
man of the town. Not caring to occupy this
position, I joined a corps, and the scars I
bear on my face are the result of twenty
seven duels in which I was engaged during
my university career.”
“In order to give you an idea of a German
‘numsur,’ or duelling meeting, I may as well
describe what occurred the first time 1 was
an active participant. One Saturday after
noon in the autumn of 1885, in company
with a number of my corps brothers, I went
to a small village in the neighborhood of
Leipzig for the purpose of fighting my first
duel. On entering the tavern that, was
chosen as the scene of combat I found the
large room thronged with some 200 students,
representing the various corps of the univer
sity. The young men, distinguished by the
colors of their caps and the ribbons they
wore across their breasts, were moving about
and conversing with each other on terms of
the grestest cordiality. Here was a blue
capped Susatian talking with a red-capped
Thuringian, there the green cap of a West
phalian was seen among a group of Saxons,
while the yellow and white caps occasion
ally noticed proved that a few of the Suab
iaus from Heidelberg and the Hanoverians
from Goettingen were among the crowd.
There were to be a number of duel.: during
the day, and as I entered tne first combat
ants were being prepared for the fray. This
is an operation that consumes a good deal of
“An attendant first slipped over the right
arm of the duellist a silk sleeve, thickly
wadded with cotton. Over this, from the
wrist to the shoulder, strips of silk were
wound, until the arm assumed the propor
tions of a robust leg. A heavy fencing
glove was next assumed, a thick leather pad
fastened over the heart, and a similar one
beneath the armpit. A silk cravat, stiffened
with the bloody that had flowed from the
wounds of previous combatants, was then
wound around the neck, and the eyes were
protected by a pair of heavy goggles. The
‘pauckhosen,’ or fighting trousers, were next
donned, these being made of leather, heavily
wadded, extending from the chest to the
knee and back, with the clotted blood of
hundreds of fights. The swords, or ‘schlae
gers,’ were then handed to the antagonists,
heavy blades about three feet in length,with
blunt point, and for some eighteen inches
along each edge as keen as a razor. The
bandaged arm and the heavy sword were
supported by friends, as to sustain weight
would fatigue the duellists, who in a few
moments would need all their strength for
attack and defense. The point of attack is
the head and fat*, all other parts of the
body being protected by tho armor I have
“The opponents advanced to the centre of
the room, each with his second at his left
side. The seconds were armed with basket
hilted swords, with which they struck up the
blades of their principals upon the cry of
‘Halt!’ The students crowded around in
great excitement, as the antagonists were
both famous swordsmen, whose comparative
skill had long been a theme of warm discus
sion throughout the university. Klarus,
senior, or president of the Westphalians,
was reputed to be the best swordsmen in
Leipzig, and had been victorious in a score
of encounters. He was a tall, graceful fel
low, noted for the great rapidity of his
blows, aud his wonderful quickness of eye,
while Heinemann, senior of Saxons, was less
known in Leipzig, but had come from Halle
with a great reputation, and had been con
sidered almost invincible in that fighting
university. Heineman was some four inches
shorter than Klarus, but of immense breadth
of chest and strength of limb, and was
known to possess a wrist of almost unpar
alleled strength and suppleness. The en
counter had Been looked forward to with
great interest, as decisive of who was en
titled to pre-eminence among the Leipzig
“The antagonists faced each other, the
umpire gave the word and in a second the
keen blades were flashing through the air,
falling heavily on the bandaged arms that
protected the head, clanging against the
iron guards of the swords, or meeting iu
midair with a loud clash. The blows came
like lightning, but so quick was the parry on
each side that for several minutes neither
was touched. At length the Westphalian’s
second cried ‘Halt!’ the blades were struck
up, pnd the arms were caught anti supported
by the attendants. A stream of blood was
seen trickling through the Saxon’s hair,
which gradually spread over his face and
dyed his shirt a bright crimson. Klarus, by
one of his famous strokes, in turn had
reached completely over his opponent’s
guard and cut a gash some tw o inches long
m his scalp. The doctor glanced at it, pro
nounced it not serious, the umpire guve the
word, and again the fight, went on. As the
combatants grew heated they became more
eager to strike and less careful to guard,
and soon the face of each was masked by the
flowing blood, which clotted about their
nock-clothf' and stiffened on their shirts.
Both had many wounds, but the quickness
of the Westphalian had proved too much for
the Baxon. who was bleeding in a dozen
places, and soon would be obliged to give up
the contest, unless by Rome great effort be
could regain the ground he had lost. His
pride was aroused to the highest pitch, his
eyes fairly blazed through the heavy spec
tacles, unil I could see the muscles of his legs
contract as he nerved himself for a great
“He rose on his toe* and aimed a blow at
the top of his antagonist’s head. Klarus
raised nis blade to ward it, when in an in
stant the direction of the stroke was changed
by a dexterous turn of the wrist, and in
stead of striking in tierce the Haxon’s blade
in quatre came full upon the unprotected
cheek of bis opponent, laying it open from
tempt) to the chin, and fairly rattling against
his teeth, two of which ware struck out by
the force of the blow, The swords were at
once struck up, Klarus led off for surgery,
and Heinemann declared the vlctpr after tne
fiercest fight that had taken place for years.
The victor) w i; a costly one, as the victor
was bleeding from no less than seventeen
cuts, the scars of which he will carry to the
grave. But he regarded them with indiffer
ence. oa he now susxi forth as the first
swordsman in Leipzig, and the fame of the
encounter and or the dexterous stroke by
which the victory had been won spread
til rough the corps of all German universi
ties, and made Heinomann famous.
“Seven or eight duels were fought on the
same day, in one of which 1 figured, and got
this scar on my check. But they all seemed
very flat alter the battle royal that preceded
them, and there was very little interest
manifested. I have been present at hundreds
of duels since, and fought a score of times
mvself, but never again did I sec such a mag
nificent fight as that which occurred on tho
day I firet stood ‘on the mensur.’ ”
MR LEMAROFF GROWS SAD
Because His Daughters Wanted Hus
bands and Consulted a Seer
From the Sew York Times.
While the air vibrated yesterday with the
sound of Williamsburg's many steam
whistles, announcing that the day’s labor
was done, a dilapidated vehicle, drawn by a
decrepit old horse, halted in front of a still
more forlorn and care-worn tenement on
North Second sti'eet, a few blocks from the
East river. A few over-ripe bananas, nest
ling among some seared and wilted leaves in
the bottom of the wagon, indicated that the
owner was a fruit vendor. Sigismuud Lem
aroff—that was his name—climbed labori
ously down from his seat and gazed at his
outfit for a few moments. There was a look
of disappointment in his eyes and a general
air of despondency all over him. At last his
surcharged feelings broke restraint in the
“Nopody and notings is no goat.”
“What’s the matter, Lemaroffl” asked a
Lemaroff explained that he had just re
turned from police headquarters, where ho
had gone to inquire about the developments
in the search for the two men who last
spring robbed his two daughters of 8">0u.
They had nothing new to toll him, and only
The story of the robbery is peculiar. The
daughters, Irma and AneK, 17 umi 14 years
old respectively, wanted to got married.
Next door to them lived an old crone named
Carlotta Oraciosa, who had the reputation
of being a soothsayer. To her the girls con
fided the secret longing of their hearts, ami
for the consideration of $1 apiece she agreed
to provide them with wealthy and handsome
husbands. Securing their tintypes she
folded them in envelopes and told the girls
to drop them in the post office without ad
dresses, and the fates would deliver them to
their future husbands.
A short time after that two young men
passed Lemaroff’s house several times and
flirted with the girls. Next day Irma re
ceived a letter signed “Julius Devereaux”
and Anek another signed “Jack.” Each
epistle contained protestations of love, and
set forth the great wealth of the writers.
The letters concluded by proposing that the
sisters dress up in the nest clothing and
jewelry they had, get hold of all the money
they could, and come over to New York as
soon as possible and get married.
Now', the girls by thrift and bard work in
a cordage factory had saved up SSOO between
them, which was deposited in the Williams
burg bank, On June 11 they drew this
money, donned their finest" attire, and
slipped away to New York. They were to
meet their intended husbands at Boulevard
and Union avenue. Two young men drove
up in a double-seated buggy at the appointed
hour aud picked up the girls. The party
then drove to a house somewhere in the
lower portion of the citp, but just where the
girls do not know. A marriage service was
hurriedly performed in oue of the upper
rooms of this house by a man who claimed
to be a minister. The two couples then went
to a hotel at High Bridge and took supper
About 8 o’clock the men said it was time
to go home. Instead of doing so, however,
the young men drove down Tenth avenue to
One Hundred and Sixty-fifth street, where
they turned off the road into a vacant lot.
The girls became frightened and began to
scream, but they were choked into silence
and robbed of their money and jewelry.
They were then put out of the buggy, and
the young men drove rapidly away toward
the city. It was after 9 o’clock the next
morning before they got home. The girls
were afraid to tell their parents what liad
happened, so they said they had staid with a
friend all night. Old Carlotta, the seer,
threatened to paralyze the girls’ tongues if
they said a word about the affair, and prom
ised to reward their silence by getting their
The story might never have been found
out at all had not Lemaroff accidentally dis
covered on Aug. 23, that the girls’ money
had been drawn from the bank, His daugh
ters then confessed to him, and he went out
to seek advice. When he returned the girls
were not at home and he was told they had
gone next door to see old Carlotta. He fol
lowed at once, but found the room vacant.
Carlotta had disappeared, and she has not
been seen since. Lemaroff then reported the
case to the police.
The secret of Lemaroff’s disgust yesterday
is that he always receives the same answer,
“No news yet,” every time he goes to police
headquarters. The police system of New
York is rapidly losing favor with Lemaroff,
and even a harsh and painful suspicion of
the veracity of his own daughters is begin
ning to take root and thrive upon the doubts
that harrass his uneasy mind.
John Wesley’s Spectacles.
From the Pittsburg Commercial-Gazette.
J. Walton Fields, a compositor living in
Lawrenceville, has at present in his posses
sion a relic that is a very venerable one. be
ing no less than a pair of spectacles worn by
John AVesley, the founder of Methodism.
They were made a present to Mr. Fields,
who is quite a curiosity seeker, by Walter
M. Moorhouse, another compositor, who got
them from his father, who was a local
Methodist minister in England. The spec
tacles came into his (Mr. M.’s father)
possession from an old farmer, who was
a staunch Methodist and whose father had
handed them down to him, and were se
cured in the first place by John Wesley,
who, during one or his religious pilgrimages
through England, had stopi*sl at this farm
er’s house over night, and in tho morning
left, forgetting his spectacles. Tho glasses
themselves are very peculiar looking. They
are very large-sized and the frame is of
iron, the glasses being set in them very
much the same as a light of glass set in a
widow at present, only, instead of using
putt yto hold them in their places, lione or
a piece of horn is used. The glass is in
perfect state of preservation and any
one can readily see through them, young as
well as old. A peculiar fact in connection
with them is that Mr. Fields also received
at the same time a small photograph, token
from a large painting of “John Wesley at
His Mother’s Grave.” The inscription on
the tombstone is so small that it is impossi
ble to read it with the naked eye. The
writer placed the antiquated-looking spec
tacles on and the inscription was easily
read. There is no doubt as to the genuine
ness of the relie, aud Mr. Fields places a
very high valuation on then), and he would
not part with them at any price.

got under my nails. Tlk- scales would drop off
of me all the time, and my suffering was end
less, and without relief. One thousand dollars
would not tempt me to have this disease over
again. lam a poor man. but feel rich to be re
lieved of what some of the doctors said wa
leprosy, some ring worm, psoriasis, etc. I took
and Sarsaparilla* over one year and
a half, but no cure. I went to two or three doc
tors and no cure. I cannot praise tbe Cuticura
Remedies too much. They have made my skin
as clear and free from scales as a baby's. All l
used of them was three boxes of Cuticura, and
three bottles of Cuticura Resolvent, and two
cakes of Cuticura Soap. If you had been here
and said you would have cured me for S2OO you
would have hail the money. 1 looked like the
Picture in your book of Psoriasis (Picture man

lam as clear as any person ever was. Through
force of habit I rub my hands over my arms
and legs to scratch once in awhile, but to no
purpose. I aju all well. I scratched twenty
eight yeans, and it got to be a kind of second
nature to me. I thank you a thousand times.
