Some Stories of
Marquis de Gallifet.
THE MAUI NEWS
dead lit t ho age of 79 y urs and five
moulds, n veteran in years, a vet
11 11 in battle, out a young man
all oilier respects.
It was in Mi'xieo that he rfeivei
the terrible wound wbicb gave risi
to the rcjHtrt that for the rest of li if
life he had a silver stomach. II
own account of the event runs:
"We were in full swing, a. shell
hurst and I inn thrown down; no
one stops for a trifle like that; the
charge continues. When I came to
myself my howcls were protruding;.
What then? When hoar hunting a
dog is ripped up we don't abandon
it, we put the Ixiwels back in place,
bring the flesh together, sew up the
wound and let come what may! I
tried at first if I could raise myself.
I could when I was on my knees. I
gathered up my bowels in my mili
tary cap. Another effort ami I was
upright. I tottered to the ambu
lance and here I anil'.
The result of this wound was to
compel Gallifet to wear a bandage
of unusually large dimensions, in
which he made all his later cam
paigns. From this grew the legend
of the "silver stomach." Once he
told an insistent reporter w ho want
ed his opinion on some question of
"You're only wasting your time.
The stomach is silver but silence is
Anecdotes about (Jallifct naturally
fill columns in the Paris press. One
evening during the days of the
Second Empire nt the house of
Mmo. Adam he gallantly placed a
kiss on his hostess's shoulder. She
rebuked him with a sharp blow with
"Pardicu," he said; "now 1 know
the price I'm happy."
And he took another kiss.
His wife, a daughter of the banker
Latlitte, died in 1001, but for years
they had not lived together, as (ial
lifct was by nature ibachelor. The
King of Greece meeting Gallifet one
day at an ollieial dinner asked him
how the Maniuise was, saying that
he had had the honor of Ix-ing in
troduced to her at Aix.
"How long ago?" asked the Gen
eral, then Minister of War.
"Then, your Majesty, you are a
luckier man than me, for it's twenty
years since I saw her."
Gallifet himself told the story that
when he was a very young officer he
bet that he would eat a wineglass,
stem, foot and all "I did it too. I
took my time certainly, three or
four hours, and when I had finished
my mouth was full of blood, hut I
went to bed all pride in my victory.
At 3 o'clock in the morning I woke
with a terrible pain. I called my
self an ass. I who had promised
myself to die for France was dying
in" led for a stupid and disgusting
hot." However, no ill effect follow
ed, so that if the General's Htomach
later in life was silver it was surely
brass at that time. .
The first time he took his seat in
the Chamber as Minister of War he
was saluted from the Extreme Left
with a selection of those epithets in
which the French language abounds.
"Assassin! llnndit! P!ackgunrd!
Scoundrell!" &c. With an ironical
smile the new Minister took out a
notelxjok and inquired the names
of the nosiest shoutcrs.
"What arc you doing?" someone
"1 am taking their names because
I really must ask them to dinner?"
Another time as he was talking
to a friend in the corridor outsidi
the chamber similar cries (not ad
dressed to him) came from the in
"Excuse mc a minute." he said
to his friend, "I think I hear some
one calling me."
When Galliftt was wounded so
severely ill Mexico the EliiMTor
Najiolcoli III., who was extremely
fond'ofhim, telegraphed for new
of his health every day. One day
word came that owing to the diffi
culty of obtaining ice the wounded

Honolulu, August 2S . L. ('.
Atkinson, member and special agent
of the lioard of Immigration, ' will
leave for Siberia in the steamer
Siberia the first of the week.
"Jack'' has procured from his
banker a booklet showing the values
in I'niled States parity of roubles,
copecks, etc., as n protection against
overcharges and a convenience in
fotting up his expense vouchers.
"I will land at Yokohama, Mr.
Atkinson said today, "and go by
way of Tokio to Tsuruga, a seaport
hi the west coast of Japan, then
icrossthe Inland Sea to Vladivostok.
From Vladivostok the journey by
rail to Harbin is S(K) miles.
"From Harbin I will probably go
to the Amur country, where the ag-
ieullural people are. I cxcct to
be back in Honolulu on October 22

''What the Hoard of Immigration
has decided to do is to get a trial

tried out here to see what they can

will keep'tab on everyone of them,
watching them carefully ms to their
modes of living and capability.
"4 intend of course to examine
each individual family as to its cap
ability for agricultural work, ami
see that there is no criminal record
in the background.
"I shall also examine into the
transportation problem, because the
fact that a man can leave here and
come back within six weeks with
labor is an important factor in the
lalxir problem of Hawaii, providing
the labor is suitable, but it is only

HOW JEFF DAVIS WON A
An Arkansas school teacher who
spent a vacation in Kansas City
last week was telling some of her
friends about Senator Jeff Davis,
"idol of Hill Billies."
"He's a remarkable genius,"
she said gravel)1. ''Please don't
laugh till I finish! I mean that
he is a perfect type of the pnpuknr
politician. When he came to Or
gan Flat he passed a house where
an old man was eating a big onion.
Senator Jeff made the driver of the
vagon,Ftop and the Senator hur
ried toward the old man with a
light of determination in his eyes.
"If there's anything I love it's
onions, he said. 'I'll be grateful
to you all my life, neighbor, if
you'll divvy up that luscious fruit
with the next Senator from Arkan
"The old man cut the onion in
two and Senator Jeff ate his share
without even the aid of a pinch of
salt. Tears came to his eyes and
one drop ran down his cheeks
but he ate every bit of that 'lus
cious fruit' and won a voter's heart
man's condition was much endan
gered. The Empress, who received the
message at dinner as the ices were
lx'ing served, refused to take any.
"I cannot eat ice when I think
that so brave an officer may betaken
from us for want of such a small
support." And until Gallifet was
out of danger she maintained her
resolution to take no ice.
He was nursed for three months
in Mexico; then stretched on a
mattress placed in a coach which
the Viceroy of Mexico hail used, he
was taken to Vera Cruz with other
wounded. He was charged with
taking to France the Hags ami guns
that had Iwcn captured from the
enemy. The Imat put in at Santia
go de Cuba and Gallifet took ail vant
age, of the opportunity to fill the
captured cannon to the nnuzK-s with
excellent Havana cigars. The scheme
worked excellently. On arrival in
France the customs officers saluted
the trophies Under the conduct of
a most ulorioiis invalid, and utile
thought that iuvalid was using them
as means for smuggling.
