SMAETEE THAN SATAN. A Legend Told by the Good Burgh- : era of Vienna. j I iw Dr, Cun»mn» OiitiTiltnl the Fv One—"iiither Thmi Harry Uio Doclor'» Willow tli" r:«v«n-Ilonfetl Gout Canceled Their Contract. [Written for This Paper.] 1 At the age of thirty Dr. Canamus was ' a greater philosopher than Kmpedbclea mnd more famous in the skill of tncdi- cine than the son of Apollo himself. Ho j had effected so many marvelous cures I »nd liad so often proved by the , clearest of reasoning that he was ' icvcr ready to perform even more won- iderful operations that finally his presumption began to surpass bis science. As he could find no colleague sufficiently versed in the mfdicol art to have a discussion with him. lie was wont from time to tirao to provoke the devil, SATAN A.ITK.UIS. without, however, much hope of his appeal being responded to. Nevertheless, ono day Satan sent up his card, and Dr. Cauamua sent clown •word that ho would be delighted to see him. Satan came in and modestly said: "I «ome to oiler you ray^services, as I have heard you are in c|itesl ol a secretary. "Without possessing your wonderful genius, I think I shall be able to bo of 'use to you." The doctor accepted the offer. A contract was signed between the two parties. The devil undertook to satisfy iall the desires of Catpamus, without being able to claim his soul anywhere else but in the city of Rome. Cana- mus, who hnd already been all over .Italy, and had no desire to pay the pope n, second visit, gayly accepted the condition. * The new secretary had given himself an inexorable and pitiless master. He •was compelled to submit to much harsh 'treatment. But the timo came when Canamus Bcemed to got tired of science for the ')ovu of science itself. Tie wont_ from 1 .Brussels, in Belgium, to live in Vienna, Austria, where, not content with being 'cited as one of the most clover and tho richest of doctors, ho wished to rank among the Viennese nobility and marry a titled lady. Satan soon brought him an invitation tfor the court ball. Canamus went there 'In a magnificent earriogc drawn by Stour horses. lie wore- full court dress and had a sword hanging by his side. When the orchestra struck up a quadrille, the empress herself walked across tho ballroom Lo Uio doctor, and j introduced him to "ono of a group of ' most handsome young ladies, who appeared to have absorbed tho doctor's attention most, not only by tho (ire of her lovely eyes, but also by the richness and beauty of her costume. The dance over, Canamus was overcome by an emotion quite new to him. T v - cu.press spoke to him again: "I can see, doctor, that your partner ]ins captured your heart. Your bashfulness needs assistance. I will help you. The young lady you have danced •with has not remained indifferent to your homage. I have asked her for you in marriacro. She is voiirs." Never was marriage concluded more rapidly. Satan, ns is generally known, j» most powerful at court. Two weeks ufter the ball Dr. Cuuamus was the happy husbnnd of Emily of Knisbcrg— the Knisborg* wore one of the oldest and meal noble families of Austria. Conjugal happiness is the shortest of all felicity" The husband was_ a . CvfOKU.s and a savant into tho bargain; Emily I'.'tmo of "f,e of the ir.osl r.rWo- Cra'.U: families o!' the Otvmtry. Uufor- tiir.uti'ly I'.'.CMI- characters were essentially d'iiioront. ond husband im:l wife were never of the same opinion. Their honeymoon lasted barely a a month. Tho doctor would be wont) to .say that with his immense fortune he m'iTht have obtained tho hand of an English princess, or at least of a German ono: his wit'n would try to make him believe that even a woman of the people would have boen too much honor for him. In the discussion the doctor, for once, got boat. For Emily had no difficulty in proving that to make a big fortune ono plucky and lucky speculation—or, at most," the lifetime of one man—was amply sufficient, whilst to constitute mobility many generations were indispensable. Emily deplored her iM*aUianct and did oil in her power to humiliate tho doctor. Canamus grew angry. Ho sent . for his secretary and ordered him to confound his wife by procuring for him » tremendous genealogy. Twenty-four hours later Satnn re- tnrncd to the doctor's study holding a parchment in his hand—a parchment of such dimensions that it required fully ten minutes to'unroll it. . . "It is impossible," said Satan, "to find anything more genuine. Your ancestors were born in Cana, Palestine, »nd by special permission they obtained tho right to prefix Cana to the family name of Mus. Your forefather. Canamus, was born about 80 U. u., ana had numerous posterity. It is herein stated that one of, his descendants founded Canada and another the Canary islands! Since a thousand years "all the khans of Afghanistan have been ancestors of yours. King John Canaloya, who lived somewhere in Bohemia, was a relation of yours." "Enough!" interrupted Canamus, snatching the parchment. Satan smiled at the Bight of his master, who, no sooner in possession of his genealogical tree, became fully cognizant of all the grand sentiments of hereditary dignity. Emily arrived on tho scene at this moment, "Madame," said her husband, "we are going to leave Vienna and visit the castle of the late King John Canaloya in Bohemia. Funds are required to renovate tho old chateau which has boen neglected for many years. Until now I have been more observant of my reputation and have neglected the great works of my ancestors. There has been scandalous talk about my disrespect. I mean to put an end to all disparagement." The peremptory tone in which this revelation was pronounced had no small effect on the proud lady, net Knisborg. The following day the couple set out for Bohemia. Satan had bought an old ruined castle for his master. A hundred workmen were set to reconstructing its towers and ramparts. After a sojourn of a few days the couple left with the intention of^ visiting all the capitals of Europe. Their trawls soon came to tin end. But one city remained. "Before returning to the castle," said Emily, "we must go to Rome." "No, no!" exclaimed Cauamus. .."What can inspiro you in tho Holy oily with such repulsion'. 1 " •'Malaria!" replied Canamus. "Malaria is the only malady against which my art is poworloss." '•Them certainly is something else," replied Emily; "your emotion leads me to'believe that you hnve some particular 1-cr.sons for not going to Rome. I til in li go alone, and 1 shall bo able _ to judge of your affection by the alacrity you show in coming so fetch me." She left Venice for Rome and Cana- mus breathed in' freedom. After a week of what tho doctor called "delightful liberty" Canamus thought it high time to return to the castlo of the Canaloyas. lie took passage on board a vessel going from Venice to Trieste, but scarcely had he walked the deck than Satan, contract in hand, advanced toward him saying: "You belong to mo now!" "IIow do you make that out?" anxiously inquired the doctor. "Read the name of'this vessel." Canamus read the name—"City of Rome!" Without a moment's hesitation no jumped into the sen and swam to the •^••^••"^ I t ... •-— ABIS OF THE X. R A. vou AKE MINE!" quay, which was but about fifty yards distant. "You are robbing me," said batan, who had Hollowed him. "Well, listen to me," said Cananr.:s. "As you have a strong dcsiro to get me into'y° ur power, I will surrender on one condition." "Which is—?" "That when I am gono you will marry my wife." "I would rather return home,' said Satan. "You can keep your wife and your soul. For a woman with such a character is more than enough to frighten the devil himself. You will bcMinhappior with her than with me." Thereupon Satan disappeared under the water, leaving behind him a trail of sulphur. r -us left the snine day for Rorac, L , N | ; -;i io his wile nnd obtained her pardon. The doctor abandoned his ancestors and his castle; his wife set aside her aristocratic airs, and. since the devil was no longer between them, they lived a happy life forever after. FI:I;DKUIC MATER. Outline of the Friucipilea of a Famous Secret Oi-der. Will Yiu Marry Mu? ' The London Telegraph tells of a funny incident that occurred on a recent Sunday in a church at Xorth London. A young man who carried a collecting- plntc after the service, before starting put his hand in Us pocket and placed, as he supposed, n shilling into the plate, and then passed it round among the congregation, which included many younff and pretty girls. The grls, as they looked on the plate, all seemed astonished and amused, and the young man, taking- a g-lanco at tho plate, found that ho had put, instead of a shilling, a conversation lozenge on the plate with tho words: "Will you marry me?" in red letters, staring everybody in tho face, while one of the congregation had capped it by a second lozenge on which was printed: "Jvametheday." CS>-y.es, orotner democrats, tne new year is bound to be a happier one for us than the old year. There are to be no national elections this year.—Louisville Courier-Journal (Dem.1.

A. The writer is not prepared to delend or antagonize this organization. Ho proposes to deal merely with facts, without favor or prejudice. Members of the sooiety claim that the A. P. A. represents everything that is good in American political life; its opponents assert that it is a pernicious revival of the knownothing organizations of a generation ago. The American Protective association is about eight years of age. Itorig* H. P. BOWERS, FOUXDCH OF THE A. P. A. inatcd with H. F. Bowers,, a lawyer of Clinton, la., who instituted the first council of the order in his native town in the spring- of 1SS7. Until 1SOO tho strength of the society was eonfincd to the state of Iowa; but thi;n it began to branch out, and now it has, according to some of its officers, a membership of several millions and holds the balance of political power in at least twenty states of the union. Whether theso claims are well founded, I am not prepared to say, although it cannot be denied' that during the campaign of last autumn the A. P. A. exercised the controlling influence in numerous city u,nd county elections. Mr. Bowers, the founcle:: of the association, was its supreme president for six years, when ho retired in favor of W. J. H. Traynor, of Detroit, editor of the Patriotic American, and one of the leaders in the so-called "American" movement. The knownothing party of the fifties objected to all foreigner;;, irrespective of religious belief, but tho A. P. A. does not discriminate against foreign- born citizens as such.- As promulgated by tho officials of the order, the princi-. •pies of the A. P. A. arc as follows: "Belief in tho perpetuation of tho American school system; complete separation of church and state, by which is meant the enactment of no laws respecting the establishment of any religion, and that no money shall be appropriated from cither the national, state or municipal treasuries .for sectarian purposes: the right of every man to worship God according to the dictates of his own conscience; free speech, an untrammclc-d press, and one ballot for each ond every citizen, fairly cast and honestly counted; the esteeming of all persons, whether rich or poor, high or low, who conic to this country with a desire 1:0 familiarize themselves with our lav.-:i and form of government, and who swear allegiance to the United States without a mental reservation in favor of any prince, potentate or pope, as rucn -worthy of being clothed with Americs.n citizenship; belief,in the restriction of immigration, so as to protect the honest citizen-laborer from the'dcpressing effects of the criminal, contract and pauper horde that is swarming to our .-shores; a welcome to their council chambers of men of all nationalities, believing that tho accident of birth Ls no true test of Ameri- Koraan uatiiouc enurcn -or: institution •'of their sect or creed whatsoever, but will do all in my power to retard or break 'down the power of the P 01 * 3 ' that I will not ent6r into any agree- ! rcent with a Roman Catholic to strike or create a disturbance whereby the Roman Catholic employes may undermine and substitu'je the Protestants; that in all grievances I will seek only Protestants, and counsel with them, to the exclusion of all Roman Catholics, and will not make known to them anything- of any nature matured at such conferences; that I will not countenance the nomination, in any caucus or convention, of a Roman Catholic for any office in the gift of the American people, and that I will not vote for, nor, counsel others to vote for, any Roman Catholic, but will vote only for a Protestant; that I will endeavor at all times to place political positions of this government in the hands of Protestants, To all of which I do most solemnly promise and swear, so help me God. Amen." After the chaplain has administered the above oath, the exponents of the secret work of the A. P. A. say, the hoodwink is removed from the candidate, who is addressed by the vice president in the following words: "Behold how glorious it is to be relieved from the pressure of a mental darkness, groping we know not whither! My 'friend, it is one of the purposes of this order to awaken the citizens of this country to the fact that they are blindly allowing the papal powers to gain absolute control of our educational institu- tions'and state and general government. Even now we are in bondage through the terrible influence which the Roman church wields over this continent. Letitbcyourduty to assist us in bringing all to a knowledge of the danger which menaces our free institutions." From the vice president, it is alleged, the candidate is conducted to the president for final ndvico, and addressed thus: "Place your right hand on the assumed emblem of tho .Roman Catholic church, your left hand on the book of your fai th,and repeat after me: 'I hereby denounce Roman Catholicism. I hereby denounce the pope, sitting at Rome, or elsewhere. I den ounce his priests and emissaries, and I hereby pledge myself to the cause of Protestantism to the end that there may be no interference with the discharge of the duties of citizenship, and I solemnly bind myself to protect at all times and with all means in my power the good name of the order and its members, so help rne God. Amen.'" The substance of tho above obligations was published in several newspapers and periodicals some time ago. The officers and members of the A. P. A. never denied or affirmed the C9rrect- ncss of the ironclad oaths; but this silence does not mean anythinij,-as secret societiesjire not in the habit of contra- t£? f^-l. &•'',• fa'% s*£»s$wi'#rrr fty jte^gg&r'KC*: I%N| ^®& .. fe^eJ-^^^-^-- / SUrP.F.ME rUESIBKXT.

The declaration of principles certaia- ly contains nothing- to which nnyone could take exception, but the Catholic opponents of the A. P. A. assert, that the secret work of the order is sufficient 10 condemn it in the sight of truly patriotic men. They lay particular stress upon the final oath, which, they allcg-e, every candidate has to take before he can become u fnll-fledg-ed member. The neophyte is said to take the following ironclad obligation: "I do most solemnly promise and swear that I will not allow anyone a member of the Roman Catholic church to become a member of this order, I knowing- him to be suchr that I will use my influence to promote the interests of all Protestants, everywhere in the world; that I will not employ a Roman Catholic in any -.capacity, if I can procure the services of a Protestant; that I will not aid in building, or in maintaining, by my resources, any COA.ni.ES T. BKATTY, SUPREME -6ECBE- TAKY. dieting every report that may be published about them. Neither the writer, nor the editor of this paper, wishes to take sides in the controversy which is going °n between the American Protective association and the Catholic church. But inasmuch as the A. P. A. 'has become a great power in the- public affairs of tho country, its secrets, when revealed, ere of paramount interest. Dr. Washington Gladden, the famous Congregational minister of Columbus, 0., believes the revelations contained in this letter to be true, and on their strength published a virile attack on the A. P. A. in a recent issue of a popular magazine. Other impartial observers, notably Rev. llichard Whoatley. D. D., can sec nothing improper or un-American in tho platform of the association. Several months ago the Roman Catholics in the west made an effort to combat the growing strength of the A. P. A. by the formation of a society known r.s the Catholic Columbian league. The luaT.e, it is iaiil, was not encouraged by "the linr.v.H! Catholic ekrgy. aud, outside of t'ie dly of Milwaukee, never assumed serious proportions. Whatever one ia:iy think of the A. P. A., it cannot be denied that its aiTairs nro managed with consummate skill. Its officers are neither garrulous, nor do they covet notoriety. The entire .machinery of the order runs along noiselessly :'..-: smoothly, its influence apparently being felt" only at election times. The present ofdccrs of the association are: P H. Bowers, Clinton, la., past supreme president; W. .1. H. Trainor, Detroit, Mich,, supreme president; Rev. Adam Fawcett, Columbus, 0., supreme vice president; Osceola B. Jackmari, Boone, la., supreme secretary of state; Charles T. Scatty, Saginaw, Mich., supreme secretary; E. 13. Dunbar, Worcester, Mass., supreme sergeant-at- arms. A number of talented lecturers is constantly employed by the supreme council' to strengthen the order ia localities where it has not yet obtained a foothold. G. "W.

Where the Fifth Commandment It Obeyed In Lotwr »n<l Spirit. The moral and social law of Japan is: "Thou shalt love thy father and mother with all thy heart, mind and strength." The Japanese wife loves her own parents more than she docs her husband, and a Japanese husband loves his wife with an affection far weaker than tha.t which he bestows on his own father and mother. Mr, Oearn, in •'Glimpses of Unfamiliar Japan," quotes this conversation, in n schoolroom, between the English teacher and a Japanese pupil: '•Teacher, I have been told that if a European and his father and his wife 'were all to fall into the sea together, and that he only could swim, he would try to save his wife first. Would he?"j "Probably," replied the teacher. "liut why?" "One reason is that Europeans consider it a man's duty to help the weaker fj rs t—especially women and children." "And does a European love his wife more than hia father and mother?" "Not always, but generally, perhaps, he docs." "Why, teacher, according to our ideas, that is very immoral." A lad of sixteen wrote a composition on "European and Japanese Customs," in which he gave expression to his ideas about tho relation of husband and wife as held in Europe. "What we think is very strange is that in Europe every wife loves her husband more than her parents. In Nippon there is no wife who more loves not her parents than her husband. And Europeans walk out in the road with their wives, which we utterly refuse to, except at the festival of IJachiman. "The Japanese woman is treated by man as a sei-vant, while the European woman is respected as a master. I think these customs are both bad. We think it is very much trouble to treat European ladies, and we do not know why the ladies are so much respected by Europeans." DR.
