SIR WILLIAM NAPIE. '
Iloir'lte Manaced the Most lawless Sol
xJO dl? Injthe. British Armjr.
Sir William Napier, who first helped
to make history and then told it, was
. , the-most tenderhearted, of men and the
..." i.'.wstornest of. disciplinar.ians. . The com
pany of which he was made Captain was
the w(orst in Jhis regiment, and the regi
ment," the Forty-Third, was theworst in
the army. Throe months after papier
took command of the company it-was
- ocimroc!1 . perfejiJQriqrrthiiKthe young
.Captain was looked up to as the best
disciplinarian in "the" "dtray. The regi
ment at the siejje and assault of Badajoz
had shown itself the bravest of -the brave.
Its ColoneLhadJjccn killed, and nearly
all ib "'officers were dead or wounded,
Jviena)jr,,tw.ehty5sVensyeArs of age,
arrived from England to take com
mand. He found the men who had braved
unheard-of terrors demoralized by de
. bauchery and the absence of control.
' His heart jumped into his mouth at the
thought of punishing such brave men,
but punish them he lid with unflinch-
insevefitv.. He'told them plainly that
nn. and the enemy's cruns wore pounn
shot into the regiment, his men became
disobedient Be halted the regiment,
an"d'flo'Tged four of the ring-leaders un
dcr fireT Then they ; submitted to the '
order, and advanced three miles under
a constant cannonade, as steadily as at
r a .review. At Vittoria, his regiment,
j. t; . which had been the most lawless of the
- : plunderers at Badajoz, -marched over
' .the richest articles of dress and furni-
t . : turo strewn about the field, and not a
' man stooped to pick up a single thing.
V Yet this same officer, who could halt
, - a regiment undpr lire to flog four men,
had the" heart of an affectionate woman.
I ' Once when lie returned to England on
, sick leave, his youngest child, a baby of
-' twelve months, was so frightened at the
V.sightof his moustache that she would
not kiss him. He stepped into an ad-
" joining room, shaved off his moustache,
- and came ack to be kissed. One day
he- met: a -little,, girl sobbing over a
'broken - bowl, because' she would be
whinned when she srofc home.
VaV-. "But'ee can mend it, can't 'ee?" said
'3,i.i-she, looking up at tho giant's face.
'Vl'in afraid not, my dear," said he,
3jtlSy feeling in his pqeketi "butI will give
you a sixpence to buy a new bowl."
: He couldn't find even a penny.

Paris is said to be much dirtier than

and in truth it is, but it is. always won

rumbles along to gather 'up the refuse
from the houses, and although the
wagon rejoices in the , convenience of a
mechanical ladder and pull-up behind,
the man on top, high boots and flannel
sliirt, always prefers to stimulate his
quilibrium, and lean over to catch hold
of the pails and boxes which a man ne-
low hands him, while a woman
knitted shawl, . drawn snugly
her head, brushes away
fhn fallen items, induljrinff in a

never interrupt the mechanical labor,
but also never cease during this opera-

the poor, worn-out quadrupeds must

examining the title and for commis

shows that persons who make a busi
ness of loaning money to farmers al
most invariablv become rich in a short
time. In lanrc cities money can almost
always be obta'ned on good securit' for
a tritle more than the interest allowed
on State bonds. Af the present time
banks and capitalists Jn all our large
cities are holding large sums of money
that they are not able to loan at the
legal rates of interest. Still farmers in
the sparsely-settled States and Terri

use of money, even when they are ablo
to offer security on land that has been.

That many Western farmers borrow
money injudic'ously is a matter of com
mon observation. It is the fashion in
most narts of the South and Southwest
for farmers to hire money at a rate of.

do n-ot yarraiit, and at the' same time to.
contract debts for running expenses,

of the paper mentioned will make four
hair-receivers, so that they can be re

will keep fresh for all four. The nar

cents a yard. Thus four nair-receivers
may be obtained at an expense of from
eleven to fifteen cents. If the walls of
the room be white, cover, the har-rc-ceiver

that may be desired. This can bo
bought at the stationer's fpr from one
