What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

• • HEAVEN UPON EARTH. DUKE AND DUCHt.e S CARL- THSODOR OF BAVARIA. They Pass Thol. Lives Doing Cowl for Others NH' •. Pay or Price - NADI rot That Will smile la the 'World'. Ills- wry. HE Third of A ix beautiful and tal- ented sisters, the Princees Maria Jo- sepha of Braganza, became the second wife of the cele- brated Royal ocu- list, Duke Carl Theodor of Bat aria, on April 29, 1874. The Princess in :very early years showed herself to be more gifted than children -ordinarily are, and her sweetness of disposition rendered her the favorite of the family At an early age she showed great dis-. crimination of character, and bad vecy' strong likes and dislikes, though she did not allow the latter feeling to be often discovered. Her great character- istic was fervent gratitude to all those who were kind to her, and any little kindness or sympathetic word was thoroughly appreciated by the Princess, even when she was quite a child, and this , charming trait she still possesses. The first wife of Duke Carl Theodor, the Princess Sophie of Saxony. died on Amaile, 'March 9, 1867, leaving him one (laugh- who was just nine years old - ter, the Princess Amalie, who married at the time of her father's second mar- riage, and who has now two little daughters of her own, born on June 22, 1893, and in September, 1894. The two sons of the Duchess were born a long time after her three daughters, and their births were naturally the source of great joy to their parents. The elder, Prince Ludwig Wilhelm, is six years younger than his youngest sister, while the youngest is ten years younger, being only seven years of age. The Duke and Duchess had quite given up all hopes of having a son when the elder Prince was born, followed four years later by his younger brother's birth. Schloss Tegernsee is beautifully sit - DUCHESS CARL THEODOR. the 1Dtke of Urach on July 4, 1892. It was wife Fee° not until seven years after his first death that tne Duke made his d choice, a choice that has ren- dered his home life ideally happy. It was on April 29, 1874, that he married the Princess Maria Josepha of Bra- ganza, who was then only seventeen years of age, and one of the most beau- tiful and talented princesses in Europe. The Duke, who is eighteen yeare her senior, is the brother of the Empress of Austria, and the head of the ducal house of Bavaria, his elder brother hav- ing resigned his rights in order to make a morganatic marriage. No married life could be more simple or happy than that led by tin' Duke and Duchess Carl Theodor, surrounded by their live chiniren, three daughters and two sons—the Princess Sophie, born in 1875; the Princess Elizabeth. 1876; the Princess Marie, 1878; PrinCe Ludwig Wilhelm, In 1884, and Prince Franz Joseph, the godson of the Emperor of Austria, on March 23, 1888. TheThuke and' Duchess lead a very busy, useful life, for the Duke has no less than three eye hospitals under his charege, which he has himself founded, the principal and favorite of which Is at the Royal Schloss, at Tegernsee. in Bavaria, of which we give views.

Tegernsee is a very ancient town, founded by two brothers, Count Ottokar end Count Adalbert, in the year 746. It is now a very pretty, quiet place, greatly fre- quented by the inhabitants of Munich, who come there on account of the pure- ness of the air and the beauty of the scenery. The ancient Schloss, which was for. molly a monastery. became a private residence in the year 1803, and In tell' bete - the property of King Maximil- ian I. of Bavaria. The King made It his Slinitner residence. and generally spent several months there every year. Now It is the property of Duke Carl Theodor, who has put It to a noble use. anti has made Tegernsee the center of charitable work among the poor. The Schloss is a large blinding. with a beatitifultshaded walk between It and the lake, the church standing almost in the conrtyard ttehInd, and with a , barkground of wooded hills. It is a, comfortable house, with numerous beautiful old-fashioned rooms, which have been rendered very homelike and pretty by the Duchess anti her daugh- ters The hospital Is situated In one wing of the Schloes, as the Duke finds it most convenient to have his patients under his own roof.

Schneider fol- lowed, and stood horrified at the brink of a precipice over 200 feet in depth. At the bottom lay the Indian and his pony, both dead.

Clinton Miller, of Bradford, Pa., a florist gardener and quite an intelligent man, eays the :tuffalo Express. has a strange hobby. He does not anti will not wear a hat. Not since a boy has Miller worn any head -covering other than a short, thick -growth of natural hair. In the summer, with the hot sun pouring down upon his uncovered head, Miller may be seen walking around the town or at his work, with the utmost serenity of manner, as if he never minded it a little bit. In the winter it is the same. The mercury may de- scend clear to the bulb in the ther- mometer, the winds may blow and the snow may fly, but Miller never minds It and stalks about bare -headed and without an overcoat. The rain doesn't feaze hint, either. No:aing bothers thjs man with the hobby, as far as the ele- ments ere'eoncorned. Miller attended the New York state fair last year, and was an object of great interest. It was very hot during the days on which the fair was held, and the sweltering crowds tried to keep cool With broad -brimmed hats, para- sols, umbrellas, Ott'., and Miller, with his hare head, seemed to be the only person on the grounds who did not suffer fro n the heat. Ile gives as his reasoa for not wearing a hurt that na- ture previded us with a head -covering, anti he saye that it is foolish for a per- son to wear a hat or any other arti- ficial head -covering. \You say you don't see how I can stand it?

The locks of Harvey's canal, while originally intended for the accommo- dation of vessels of various kinds and dimensions, but failed to operate for some reason or other, were permitted to fall into disuse. says a New Orleans paper. As a consegaence of this it was considered necessary to construct a dam across the head of the Canal and also below the Inner gate. The basin formed by the two dams gradually filled with rain Water, forming a pool about 250 fete in length, 50 feet wide and possessing a depth of about 15 feeL In the course of time this Wein became filled with small fish, and, as it now turns out, this provision of nature will serve to prolong the life of a very re- markable inhaletant of the lock easin. The capture of a porpoise in itseer is a very unusual occurrence, hut when you couple to this capture the fact that it was kept alive for a period of ten hours, the occurrence becomes of more than ordinary Interest. Yet this wee the case in regard to the acquirement of a porpo7se Wednesday by Captain A. Harvey of the steamer Louise Har- vey, which vessel plies between the head of Harvey's canal, on the other side of the river, and the Gulf waters in the neighborhood of Barataria bay, engaged in transporting lich anti oysters to this city. The fishermen employed by Captain Harvey on the day men- tioned were hauling the seine in the shallow waters of the bay, when there was an unusual splashing and disturb- ance in the ligg of the net. Upon the haul being completed It was found that a monster porpoise had permitted him- self to become entangled in the seine, which !evangelist has never diero•ered salfi that Ile has never interfered with end to make it plainer to you than any the running of that road, though it has and being unable to get away was after one else t•an. That roll is, in the main, large numbers of travelers. On Sun- considerable difficulty landed safe on t a reliable guide, but I would advise days Mr. Modern Thought talked to the deck of he steamer.

The porpoise, which was eight feet long and weighed 500 pounds, was nor injured An the struggle which took placc upon reaching the side of the steamer, and being secured so it could not plunge about the deck, eas covered with seeks and kept well wet- ted during the journey to the lock. This latation was reached nearly ten hours later. At this time the. fish appeared rather weakened by its long absence from the water anti (lid not glee any violent signs of life when thrown into • the fresh water of the basin. Somenen minutes later, however, it began to swim slowly about the lock, anti after an hour's duration it seemed to have regained its usual vigor and appeared to enjoy the novelty of being sole ocou- pant of any size in its' new domicile, man with the roll a card whereon his where the old way used to go. name was written and disappeared.
