Right Knowledge

I am not the Lord Adonai, Jesus Messiah “The Christ”; nor am I a holy man, nor a preacher. I am a Master Teacher, a guide.

King Of The Dudes

Mr. E. Berry Wall’s Embarrassment—some of the incidents in a very striking career.

(NYT, September 5, 1885)

Club men about town are just now discussing the financial affairs of the “King of the Dudes,” Mr. E. Berry Wall.  For some time past the young man has rather withdrawn himself from the public gaze, and since the beginning of August has remained in comparative seclusion at Saratoga.  Since his retirement he has transferred his running horses, with which he has had some little success, to the Preakness stable, under the colors of which they will hereafter run.

Bloodbath Countess

The noble Báthory family stemmed from the Hun Gutkeled clan which held power in broad areas of east central Europe (in those places now known as Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, and Romania), and had emerged to assume a role of relative eminence by the first half of the 13th century. Abandoning their tribal roots, they assumed the name of one of their estates (Bátor meaning ‘valiant’) as a family name. Their power rose to reach a zenith by the mid 16th century, but declined and faded to die out completely by 1658. Great kings, princes, members of the judiciary, as well as holders of ecclesiastical and civil posts were among the ranks of the Báthorys.
