JAMES PREFERRED TO STAND.
Story of a Bright Schoolmaster and the
Budding Genins of Art.
The schoolmaster was a very athletic
person, a fact of -which the boys had failed
perhaps to take note. He had large hand
and much endurance; indeed he needed
both. Hands were unusually necessary in
his department, as those who have tried to
manage boys between the ages of ten and
twelve can very well understand, and as
for endurance, he needed the endurance of
the father of one boy of ten or twelve mag
nified to the one hundredth degree, because
about that number of youths had fallen
to his lot for direction in knowledgable
On the morning following St. Valen
tine's Day he seemed unwontedly cheerful
so cheerful, in fact, that certain bad
boys in the third row feared that there
was something the matter with the United
States maiL How a man, particularly a
schoolmaster, could smile after receiving a
certain libelous picture, a composite figure,
the body cut from one of the colored car
toons m a comic paper, the head that of a
prize goose clipped from an agricultural
journal, beneath which was printed in in
verted N's and weary lettering of unmis

thing except what was so, none of them
Surely that work of art, they thought,
nust have gone astray! But the notion
was soon dissipated, for after the usual
preliminary exercises in the opening of the
school had been gone through with, the
master rose from his seat and made the
"My dear boys," said he, "inasmuch as
yesterday was St. Valentine's Day, I have
determined to give to you all a half holi
day." "Hurrah!" shrieked one of the third row
"Restrain yourselves, boys," said the
master gently. "Waituntill have finished.
"We will have no lessons during the morn
"Hooray!" cried one of the fourth row
"That will do, "Willie." said the master,
raising his hand, which Willie no sooner
was than he had a relapse of quietude and
cowered in his chair.
"I should not have remembered that
Valentine's Day had come and gone," con
tinued the master, "bad I not found upon
my desk this morning a very clever piece
of artistic and poetic work. I have read
the lines upon 'The Educated Goose,' and
I am inclined to think that they are, with
out any exception, the cleverest lines of the
sort I have ever seen, and I am glad to say
that my assistant is of the same opinion.
Indeed, he has asked me to let him have
the production as it stands picture, lines
and all to show to a friend of his who is
on the editorial staff of one of the maga
zines, because he thinks the magazine
might like to publish it, but I am disin
clined to let him do this.
"Not that I am not proud of some one of
my pupils who prefers not to put his name to
his wonderful production, but that if the
sketch were published in the magazine, I
should doubtless receive some ten or fifteen
dollars in payment for it, which of course
I could not consent to accept. I could not,
under any circumstances, part with a vol
untary testimonial of affection from one of
my pupils, and my only regret is that one
so gifted as the designer of this valentine
has chosen to keep his name secret. 1"
"Tell 'im, Jimmie," came a smothered
voice from the fourth row. j
"Silence, boys!" said the master. "En
couraged by this valentine, I expect to
start you all off in art work in a very short
time, and J am convinced from the compo
sition of this figure of 'The Educated Goose'
that we have among us a youth of extraor
"I'm him!" came from Jimmie Perkins,
of the third row. his bosom heaving with
pride. "If you fan get fifteen dollars for
it, Mr. Smicker, I'm willin."
"Ah!" said Mr. Smicker, a smile light
ing up his features. "It was you, was it,
"Yes, sir," said Jimmie with enthusi
asm. "I done it all by myself. No help
from anybodv. If it's worth fifteen dol
lars" "We'll talk that over together, James,"
interrupted Mr. Smicker, "if you will
come into my private room. Amntterof
so great importance should not be talked
over so publicly. The school is now dis
missed until 1 o'clock."
Mr. Smicker disappeared into his private
room, and Jimmie stalked proudly after
him, hardly deigning to notice auy one,
while the rest of the boys departed for the
skating pond with envy in their breasts.
"Jimmie allers was a lucky feller," said
"Reg'ler cat for landin on his feet," said
And so the time went on.
At 1 o'clock school opened again, and as
the boys trooped in thev were surprised to
see that Jimmie, standing by Mr. Smicker's
dek, looked deeply pained and thoroughly
"James." said Mr. Smicker, as the boys
quieted down and school began again,
"you may take your choice you may re
turn to your seat or stand in the corner."
And strange to relate, James preferred
to stand in the corner, and since that time
he has lost all hi-, interest in art.
Mr. Smicker still has the valentine,
whch has not yet been published. Har

certain. Finally, Shiloh gave the cause of
the victors a wonderful impetus; so also
did Marengo, and as Shiloh made, the fame
of a budding general whose previous suc
cesses had been transitory, so Marengo
boomed Napoleon as imperator and gen
eral when his lucky star was his chief
capital. From a personal point of view
Grant had to win Shiloh in order to get
into the race for glory with such seniors as
McClellan, Buell and Halleck, and Na
poleon had to win Marengo to compete
with his well intrenched rivals, Moreaa
and Massena. Had Shiloh ended as at one
time teemed inevitable, Grant would prob
ably have dropped into obscurity, and the
same with Napoleon had Marengo gone
Marengo fought Juno 14, 1S0O was a
forlorn hope for Napoleon, although not for
France. His success in Italy, in the cam
paign of 1796, and his campaign in Egypt
made him first consul, but that appoint
ment removed him from the army. In
plain English, he had been shelved so far
as active military leadership was concerned.
In opening the campaign against Austria,
in 1600, he had either to give the place cf
honor to Moreau or Massena, by sending
their armies to the field, or to create a new
army if he would lead himself, even nomi
nally. As first consul he was commander
in chief much as the president of the
United States is and might accompany
an army in the field, but not actually
command it. To accompany the armies
under Moreau or Massena would be to yield
the glory of an achievement to other nandr.
At least this is the view of his critics.
But as usually happens in a crisis, tre
public had no time to note the purely per
sonal events. Austria took the initiative.
Fiance was in danger. Who was to lead
the rescue? Moreau's army, 110,000 strong,
was guarding the frontier on the Rhine.
Massena was at Genoa guarding the pass
from Italy into southeastern France below
the Apennines. He had 10,000 troops in
Genoa and 15,000 under Gen. Suchet on the
strip of frontier north of Nice toward the
Alps. The Austrians attacked Masena
with 120,009 men, besieging Genoa with
10,000, confronting Suchet's frontier guard
with 40,000, and leaving the remaining 40,
000 in garrison guarding communications.
Of course it touched a sore spot in Na
poleon to have northern Italy, which he
had wrested from Austria in 179G, again
brought under her domination and made
the base of operations against France. Be
sides, it was among the probabilities that
the Austrians in Italy would break through
Massena's ranks, turn the southeastern
provinces from their allegiances to repub
licanism, and then let loose upon the
Rhenish frontier an army of 150,000 men to
The campaign was opened vigorously by
the Austrians in Italy in April, 1SO0, and
Napoleon needed to act promptly. For
some time there had existed, on paper, a
body of troops known as the Grand Army
of Reserve of France. It was a byword
throughout Europe, and was freely lam
pooned at home and abroad as consisting
of a corporal's guard of decrepit old men
and of weak striplings. Napoieon secretly
fostered this view of it, and also secretly
assembled at Dijon, in eastern France.

Napoleon- His little array was in the
Austrian rear, but should half of Melas'
army turn around and show fight, what
then? But Melas couldn't believe that
the French had crossed the Alps and he
looked upon the Army of Reserve as a
myth. Napoleon had not only his Army of
Reserve, estimated by some at 50,000 men,
but Moreau had detached a column of
about 20,000 from the Rhine to cross the
Alps at the Gothard pass and enter Italy
by Lake Maggiore in aid of Napoleon. By
June 1, therefore, there were nearly 109,
000 French soldiers in northern Italy -or
along her frontiers.
Napoleon made a feint on Turin, then
turned east and drove the Austrians from
Milan, making that his base. The column
sent by Moreau was distributed on the
line of the River Ticino, extending from
the Alps southward to the River Po, and
this movement shut Melas up in Piedmont
with but one or two loopholes of escape.
South of Piacenza and Alessandria the
Apennines extend northward to the
swampy borders of the Po, leaving but a
narrow pass for the roadway between these
points. Into this pass Napoleon threw his
Army of Reserve. To Napoleon's view the

repulsed, retiring toward Alessandria.
Napoleon lay idle until the 12th, surmising
that Melas would cross the Po to the
north, although a spy assured him that ha
was moving south toward Novi and Genoa.
On the morning of June 14 Napoleon's
army was at the gates of Alessandria, all
except a division of 6,000 under Gen. Desaix,
that had been dispatched to Novi to head
off Melas on the south. The French were

2.000 strong. Two divisions 9,000 strong,
under Victor, extended from the east bank
of the Bormida river at Alessandria to
Marengo. Lannes, with 5.000 infantry, and
Murat, with 3,700 cavalry, held tbe lina
from Marengo northeastward to the Po.
Massena's corps, under Gen. Suchet, had
advanced from the coast northward as far
as Acqui, hut there was no communication
between the two armies other than secretly
through the Austrian lines.
The Austrians opened the battle early
on the 14th by crossing the Bormida at
several points 31,000 strong and assailing
Victor's line. Victor was slowly driven
back to Marengo, where a small creek gave
him a natural defense. Lannes was at
tacked, north of Marengo, and his troops
also fell back step by step.
At the village of Marengo the French
cannon under Marmont defended the creek
against Austrian guns planted on the op
posite side of the narrow ditch. Napoleon
was absent when the ball opened, but on
hearing the sound of battle he rode to
the front, sending a courier to recall Desaix
from 2sovi. Melas had detached a body of
2,200 cavalry to Acqui to head off the
French under Suchet, reported to be pass
ing that point fora junction with Napoleon.
Kellerman's French cavalry brigade, 450
strong, charged the Austrians and was re
pulsed. The Austrians then charged and
carried Marengo. This was at 11 o'clock,
and following that the French began to
retreat all along the line. Napoleon led in
the Old Guard of S00 sabers, but the Im
perial cavalry crushed them. A division
j of reserves under Monner, also led up by
.Napoieon. was unven oacK, and in the par
lance of the field "all was lost." It only
remained for Melas to send in a column of
cavalry to sweep the flying detachments
over the open plains back of Marengo, and
victory would have been his. But his
cavalry reserve had gone elsewhere.
By the middle of the afternoon the
French had retreated over two miles and
were only striving to save themselves.

"When Mr. Bonner bought Sunol out oa
tie Pacific coast at such an enormous fig

such an expensive piece of horseflesh was
to be safely brought over so many, many
miles, and if the price named was payable
upon delivery in good condition only. In the
case of the baby horse called Arion, which
J. Malcolm Forbes, of Massachusetts, pur
chased for $125,000 from Senator Stanford,
the money was paid before the horse took
a step out of his stall at Palo Alto. Mr.
Forbes' farm is 4,000 mtlesfrom Palo Alto,
and the transportation from sea to sea
was at the risk of the purchaser. Two
days after the sale Arion started east in a
palace horse car, made the journey 10
safety and landed at Mr. Forbes' farm feel
ing the frisky 3-year-old that he was.
Just at the time of the saJe it happened
that the Palo Alto consignment to the an-
nnal sales was ready to start to New York.
The private cars stood on the side track te
receive them. Arion went with them. Ha
i was in perfect winter condition. With no
more preparation than the throwing on of
a blanket fee was led from the stall to the
stock chute and thence into the car.

the tedium of the journey the hons were
to remain in Cheyenne two days.

snow on the ground. Bred under unny
California skies, Anon never saw snow
He was led off the car in the early morn
ing. FIRST EXPERIENCE "WITH RCOW. j
The moment he caught tight of the !
white plains glistening in the sun rays he i
stopped short and looked about him with
blank amazement pictured in his big eyes. ,
His groom coaxed him down the decline of
the chute, but when he reached the ground
he stopped again and blew one of tbo-e '
snorting signals which means dttrut.
Much coaxing and petting got him down.
bnt he put his feet into the snow as g.n
gerly as a debutante puts her pink og-s
into the water of Monterey He was not
satisfied until be had trust his muzzle into
the snow He took a deep breath and the j
frozen mist filled his nostnls. He shook '
his head with an ancry snort and blew tne
snow up in a tiny ckmd. That mm red hint, j
and with ears at full cock be barked off
There was a lot of this sort of maneuver
ing before he could bs persuaded to go
along. The race track stables werp two
miles away and tbe band wa taken there.
Every horse was carefully Uanketed and
tbe cracks :n the stalls were carefiilly
closed. There was one brick stall at the
track, and Anon, by ngbt of hi record,
got that. The weather was bitterly eoM.

Arion was invited up town to Banker
Hicks' pnai stable, which is boilt of
brick sad heated by stam.
Coming out of his stall tbe colt struck a
yard of ice and supped. A man on each .
side threw their ifeoaJdais acaiost birn
aad supported hsm until he secured a foot- ;

when the danger nal passed.
