NAPOLEON AND SUICIDE.
His Draft of Poison and His Com
ments on Self Destruction.
It is said that when all seemed lost
to Napoleon in 1814the year before
Waterloohe thought of suicide as an
end to his career. lie actually took
a draft of poison, but the essential
element in the concoction had lost its
efficacy. He, however, conquered his
inclination to self destruction, which
he ever afterward held in abhorrence,
even during his hopeless exile at St.
Helena. When during his first con
sulship one of his grenadiers killed
himself Napoleon issued an order to
"The Grenadier Gobain has killed
himself owing to a love affair. He
was otherwise an excellent soldier.
The first consul commands that the
guards should be informed that a sol
dier ought to conquer the grief and
bitterness of his passions that there
is the same courage in enduring with
patience the pangs of the soul as in
facing bravely the fire of a battery. To
give oneself up to grief without resist
ance or to kill oneself to escape is to
abandon the field of battle before being
In a conversation with Goethe, Na
poleon blamed the poet for allowing
Werther to commit suicide, and 1816
he said to O'Meara*
"Suicide is the act of a gambler who
has lost everything or of a ruined
profligate. I have always thought that
a man shows more courage in support
ing the evils that afflict him than in
getting rid of his life."
TRAGIC IN ITS BREVITY.
The Story of the Duel Between Hamil
ton and Burr.
The story of the Hamilton-Burr duel
is tragic in its brevity. The little party
of fivethe principals, their seconds
and the surgeonwas on the ground
not long after sunrise. The prelimi
naries were soon arranged. As Pen
dleton, Hamilton's second, gave him
his pistol he asked, "Will you have the
"Not this time," was the significant
reply, and then the men faced each
According to the best authorities
upon a disputed subject, Burr fired at
the word. At the report Hamilton
started forward with a convulsive
movement, reeled, involuntarily dis
charging his pistol into the foliage
above him, and fell headlong Burr,
with an expression of pain upon his
face, sprang toward him, but Yan Ness,
his second, seized him by the arm and
hurried him down the bank and into
Hamilton, being lifted up, re\hed
for a moment and gasped, "This is a
mortal wound, doctor" Relapsing
again into unconsciousness, he was
again revived by the fresh air of the
river. "Pendleton knows," he said,
trying to turn toward his friends, "t^tat
I did not intend to fire at him."
At 2 the afternoon following he- had
breathed his last.

In mostt accounts of snake charming
