Sach a man is really needed in Chicago. AFTER NEARLY two years the bodies of the twenty-nine miners drowned or suffocated in the Hill Mine Farm at Donbar hare been recovered. It seems strange, in the liebt of what, human achievement is capable of, that so long a period should bave elapsed before the bodies could be removed. It most not be forgotten, however, that mine explosions play great havoc •with the underground chambers in which they occur and they sometimes furnish almost impossible obstacles to a successful search for the victims. It is poor comfort to the relatives of the dead bodies at this late period, but they will now be given decent burial and all uncertainty as to their fate and whereabouts is at an ec d. IT requires physical as well as moral courage to tell Southern bulldozers of their sins, but Revivalist Cnlpepper, who is calling sinners to repentance at Brunswick, Ga.., seems possessed of both.

THE BERil SCHLOSS Interesting 1 Accounts of the Manner in Which the Kaiser Dines in State. Spirited Revolutionary Reminiscences of a Brare Attempt to Occupy the Sebloss. Graphic Fen Pictures of the Kaiser's Reception, and the Royal Appartments. William II, is the first King since the creation of royal Prussia by Frederick I, in 1701, who recognized the Berlin Schloss as his official residence and there spends the social season. Indeed, he makes the immense pile facing the Lustgarten his headquarters daring the whole of the year, whenever he visits tbe Capital, either on returning from his summer across from Post, a P lac ? Two Men Inside. An old Indian had borrowed some tobacco from a white man. After he had got to his wigwam ha found some money rolled up in the tobacco, and at first was quite delighted to get it, thinking only of how many pounds of tobacco it could be exchanged for. But during the night the Indian grew restless and could not sleep, the thought of the money began to trouble iiim, and he could not make up his mind that it belonged to him. So the next morning he rose bright and early and came and asked for "the white man." Upon his appearance the Indian said, "I found some money in the tobacco you jave me." "Why didn't you keep it?" asked the white man. •'Because," said the Indian pointing to ais breast, ''I've got two inen here." One man say, 'It is Hot mine, give it back to the owner.' The other man say, 'Keep it, it is yours.' Then the other man say, •No, no, give it back, it is not yours!' and the other man say, Tes, yes, itj is youis, keep it!' So 1 don't know whut to do, the two men inside kept ta king all night, and thpy so trouble mo 1 Dring the money back, and now I 'eel good," HARRISON GKTS IJ CRIME.

Harrison had his ojrns sti/pped on, and im altercation followed, Harrison lucking the hi- trudt'r from tbo oar. Tho city marshal boarded the train, knocked Hairisou down with a club and took him out.

Passengers Kay the trouble was caused by thojuiirslwl's uauif TVUCJ.C J-ic jju-uaujwa a £/iav^ cuuivau similar in magnitude and grandner, the Neues Palais, so called. Frederick I., who in the year 1716 furnished the Sehloss, founded in the fifteenth 'century, left it a bad name. It was at this castle his court spent one-fifth of the Kingdom's entire revenue in aping Louis XIV. And this revenue was at the time only 4,000,000 thalers, 1,000,000 less than the present sovereign's annual salary. He suscessor, Fredrick William, the parsimonious, detested the place where his lordly father had entertained 142 different classes of servants on the fat of the land. He never set foDt into it except on state occasions. Frederick the Great hated the Schloss almost as much as Berlin and sent all his grandfatder's silver treasurers stored there, the immense chandeliers, massive tables and chairs, etc., into the mint. Frederick William II. and III. also kept aloof from the Schloss, the one because he preferred the air and country lassises of Potsdam, the other for economy's sake. BEVOLtJTIOXAKY BEMIKISCEXCES. Frederick Williatn IY. made a brave attempt at occupying the Schloss, but when the revolutionists of 1848 made him appear on the grand balcony to doff his chapeau before the victims of his s&Idiery, ho became so disgusted with the ill-fated pile that be never dared look at it afterward for fear of bringing on appoplesy. For the same reasons the late Kaiser Wilhelm was opposed to a residence in the Schloss. He had attended the balcony scene in his disgraced brother's soite and deeply felt tne significance of the event, which Feadinand Freiligrath thus describes in his great poftm, li The Dead's Appeal to the Liviag:" "Off came liis hat— he crouched— The royal pnppet, who bat Te.terdav appeared as a comedian." But that wasn't all. William had also grave personal reasons for disliking the palace. On March 20, 1848, he, then prince of Prussia, was forced to hide in one of its inner chambers to elude the enraged populace, who stormed the castle gates to secure- his person. Tbe rioters failed to find him and in their anger threw the gates into the .Spree, where "they had intended to depos-ir the prince. Some years later these gates weie fished out of the river and re-erected, a standing reminder of a Hohetzjlien's weakness. The present Emperor caused them to be removed and replaced by magnificent specimens of the wroughter's art, THE KAISEB'S APARTMENTS. Not until the last trace of taem had disappeared did tha proud kai>er make his entrance into his arice=trai hi.ils, where lie occupiis the appartmen's f irmerlj inhabi- ed by his late uncle, Frederick Charles, the famous Red prince und conqueror of Metz, a gentleman whe never cared a rap lor the historical and revolutionary reminiscences that made the Schloss odious to the other members of the royal fsmily, but considered it a good place to live in as he had no place of his own. The building itself has undergone no alterations since it became once more the royal eeadquarters. Emperor William .has bpgun the construction of an annex to' the White Hall, it is true, but as it will not be finished for the next twelve months it must not be taken into consideration here. THE WHITE HALL. The hall is one of the most beoutiful in the world. Like all stated appartments of the bchloss its appointments and "decorations are of the first Frederick's period when 4,000,000 of downrtroddeu people were reduced to abject poverty in order to equip the newmade King's new re*i- dence with regal splendor. On the While Hall, especially, was money spent with a lavish hand, for didn't the kin if, during the course of its erection securo the services of Douiinico C.tetano tonte de fiuggiers, the alchemist, who claimed to have invented a process of making gold? What was the use of stinting oneself for the sake of a few paltry millions (from one's people's pocket*) it the Italian promised to create untold kin, iijvuded the limited precmcfe and Smpletely filled the test of the avadable space. While these ladies and gentlemen were quarreling for P«ced<mcej »d muttering under their breath, I looked thioagh a'narrow window to catch s ghniDseof the approach of state coaches drawing up into the court yard below. There were the foreign amb<«sadors' and the nobility s old-time "rococo" carriages of ark- like dimensions, painted in bright colors, red and green, blue or white, glittering with gold and crests galore, and with pigtailed, silk-stockined servants hanging on to showy straps in the r^ar. Four or six richly harnessed horses galloped gaily in front of these cumbersome ambulance?, their drivers constituting a whole circus in themselves, with their lace?, tassels and cords, three cornertd hats, immense furs and bouquets, their gold headed whips, and above all their haughty airs. Now the guards sound a call— the blue and silver coach of Prince Frederick Leopold has arrived, and it looks as this Ciceaus among the Prussian princes had squandered a fortune on the equipage, whose six black stallions are driven from the saddle, and pioneered by buglers. Another call; this is the Princess Frederick Charies. by her late marriage, Baron- •nr. I..-.- ess von her tall Wangenheim >( ''carosaiers.'' Six no t e( j of them in golden accouterments, with ostrich plumes on their heads, strut before the gilded chariot, which is completely filled by the lady's court train and furs. The emper or's only unmarried sister, Princess Marguerite, arrived in a coach of equal splendor, bat unattended by her mother, who is still indisposed. It was now 6:30 o'clock and the guests began to appear in large numbers at the door of the "Saal," where they were received by chamberlains all in silks and gold lace, swords studded with precious stones at their sides. These dignitaries showed each ons his or her place, and fre qnently whispered a final instruction to the younger people. The tables were set in a square of two long and two short an' gles. It is impossible to describe the pomp and magnificence of their decoration. Candelabra, weighing hundreds of pounds in solid gold, with silver pedestals, alternated with flower and fruit stands of the same precious metal. Then there were beautiful Sevres vases, get off by gold bronze, and show-pieces of wonferous design. The service waa of gold and enamel, the \inen silk-like in texture and the porcelain band painted. The scent of flowers floated through the mighty room,at whose furthermost end two fountains of aromatic waters were playing in a bed of greens. Now Prince Stollberg, the grand chamberlain, taps his golden staff on the parquetce, the sruarde- du-corps musicians divided in two orchestras and stationed opposite each other on the galleries; place their silver cornets (also an inheritance of Caetaao-FredQrickl ) to their mouths, a dead quiet -ensues the court is about to eater. Thirty to forty pages in red and silver doublets, velvet knickerbockers, white silk stockings, and gold shoes, headed the procession, followed at a measured distance, by the grand masters of ceremonies, stewards, gentlemen, ushers, etc., all in elaborate costumes. The Emperor, conducting his aunt, the Princess Frederick Ckarles, came next, the empress, at the side of Prince Frederick Leopold, and a long train of royalties. The imperial "Military Household" and a detatchment of body guards, wearing the picturesque costume of the great Frederick's, bring up the rear. The moment the kaiser appeared before bin guests a brilliant fanfaronade was enacted by the two music corps, while everybody bowed low andsmiled^serenelj.

His majesty has onlv one hand above the tablecloth, the heavily jeweled and massive right wieldina the golded knife-fork.
