NAPOLEON AS A GUNNER.
How Hb Demonstrated Hi? Ability
and CMrcornfited H la Critics.
It was in 1782 that Napoleon, on
a visit to his folks at Ajaccio, bad
an opportunity to demonstrate in
the presence of the friendu of his
boyhood the superiority of his
knowledge of the practical use of
artillery. It may easily be believed
that lie embraced the opportunity
The! officers of the garrison had
receivfiid from Puris a new mortar,
which they were trying on a mark
fixed on ?ispreto, a rocky point op
posite the city and across the harbor,
frhey could not hit the target to
save their lives. Napoleon said to
the spectators: "They will not suc
ceed. Their method is all wrong."
?The officers did not hear this re
mark, but after many trials, noting
the smile on the young officer's lips,
one of them said, with a touch of
irony in his voice :
"Monsieur, you are laughing at
xis. Do you desire to us a dis
play of your superior knowledge?"
Napoleon answered courteously,
**I am very far from laughing at you,
but I do not approve of your meth
"Will you show us your method ?"
asked the officer, with a sneer.
Bonaparte loaded the mortar care
fully with his own hands, quickly
measured the distance of the target
?with his eye alone and touched the
The target was shattered, and
there was a cry of applause from
the bystanders, who were not at all
troubled to see a native Corsican
take the wind out of the French
"All an accident!" cried the officer
iwho had challenged Napoleon to try
his skill. "He couldn't do it again
Sn a hundred times."
"Do you desire me to attempt it
jonce morer" asked Bonaparte, with
the same ironical smile on his face
that was destined to aggravate co
many enemies among the crowned
Hienda of Europe.
"S'il vous plait," said the officer. ?
Napoleon again lighted the fuse
after personally loading the mortar.
(Again he hit the mark. Then, with
out waiting for further permission,
[he tried it the third time, with the
came result. The garrison officers
apologized for their impertinence
and inquired if he would tell them
5u what respect tpeir method had
been at fault. ?
"Withpleasure," answered Napo
leon. "You simply had too much
powder behind the bomb. Try it
yourselves with less powder, and you
?will succeed." The first experiment
showed that he was right. The offi
cers had had a good lesson in gun
nery, and the oeqple of Ajaccio had
?been shown tjiat their young hero
Ihad not lost his prestige by going to
a French military academy.
The Lot 'Sored Bat.
The British long eared bat has a
body only two inches long from the
tip of its nose to the base of its tail,
but its ears are an inch and a half
long and three-quarters of an inch
When the owner pf these vast ears
proposes to go to sleep it bends them,
outward and then backward, fold
ing them down on each side of its
bead and shoulders,'before bringing
up its wings to cover, its sides. When
the little bat wakes it is quite a
business to straighten these cum
brous ears into position again. In
.fact, he holds them for some little
time half cock before he is able to
erect them fully.
Bats are very'sensitive to drafts,
and on that, account thia little mam
mal puts itself tb bed in such care

"Most people would cons'r
French language richer in tem.
cerning food and cookery the
German/' writes Jerome 7
tho Sen Francisco Argoi
have always thought so, h**? ?
so much surprised in Germain by
the richness of the language in food
phrases that I took the trouble to
count the columns in a French-Eng
lish and a German-English pocket
dictionary. Result-French, eight
columns; German, eleven. But
when one reflects it is really not ex
traordinary that the German should
have more words for articles of food
than the French, for they certainly
seem to have more things to eat and
to eat them more frequently.
"Where did I once read a descrip
tion of the German heaven? Was it
in Heine? I remember dimly the
writer describing the celestial abode
dreamed of by all good Germans-a
land where the sausage tree &nds
under the weight of plump sausages
hanging in bunches like bananas;
where golden salmon swim ashore
and wriggle into your plate, perish
ing to be eaten raw; where the stur
geon come and voluntarily offer up
to you their young in the form of
caviare; where the cucumbers and
gherkins grow in beds all ready for
the consumer and may be picked,
ready pickled, and eaten at once.
"Wandering swine in that heaven
come up to those fond of raw ham
and let them cut slices off their
juicy loins; the roast goose, brown
and succulent, flies through the air
on its featherless wings, alights with
a flop on your plate and turns un its
plump bicast ready for your knife ; a
land where there are lakes of soup
and rivera of gravy ; a land where it
is ever raining beer."
Simple minded visitors to the Jar
din des Plantes, the Paris zoo, take
a rather intimate view of the Dar
winian theory, according to the Lon
don Chronicle. Some branches of
the animal kingdom are represented
there by skeletons. Said a painter
to a model one day, "I shall want
you on Sunday morning for the final
sitting." 'Impossible, monsieur,"
said the model. "I am going to take
the children to visit my grandfa
ther." "Your grandfather! Why,
how old are you?" "Sixty-seven,
monsieur." "And you still heve a
grandfather ?" "Oh, yes, at the Jar
din des Plantes ! He's a skeleton. I
take my own grandchildren to see
him . once a month. The keepers
know us very well. They always
say: 'Ah, you have come to see your
grandpapa! All right. You'll find
him in his usual place. He can't
walk very comfortably now, so he's
still there.'* "

? Ono day a well dressed stranger
called at a Lawrence hotel and told
the landlord that he was broke and
very hungry. The landlord took
him to the dining room and gave or
ders for a dinner. When he got up
from the table, a twenty dollar bill
dropped from his handkerchief,
which he drew from his pocket. A
waiter picked it up and handed it to
the landlord, who confronted him
with the fact and at once took out
75 cents (25 cents ia the regular
price) and returned the, $19:25 to
the stranger, who was apparently
dumfounded and speechless. Later
on the vigilant landlord learned that

ODD LITTLE MYSTERIES.
Queer Happenings Which Seem to Be
Without ' Explanations.
Life is full of little inexplicable
.ysteriea, says Pearson's Weekly.
ey occur every day and aro passed
id being merely ordin?r}'. ' When
?er the conversation turns on telep
athy or tho occult sciences there is
always some one with a story* of the
mysterious to tell.
About ten years ago on a largo
open tract of land in the north of
London (now fortunately covered
with red brick villus) a number of
boys were playing cricket. Sudden
ly there came a loud humming noise,
like the combined droning of thou
sands of bees, and a great stone
larger than a man's fist whizzed
across the center of the pitch and
imbedded itself in a bank. Almost
immediately it was followed by an
other and then a third.
Although they waited in hiding
for some time, there was no repeti
tion of the mysterious missiles. Tho
question then arose, Whero could
they have come from ? The nearest
house was quite 400 yards away, and
a machine to have sent these large
stones whirling at such a frightful
paco over this distance would be
rather an extraordinary article of
furniture for a suburban villa. So
the cause of this remarkable occur
rence yet requires explanation.
In the same district a few years
back four young men were seated in
a room playing whist. Suddenly,
just after midnight, the door, which
had been latched, opened slowly un
til it had reached its fullest limit.
In surprise the players looked up,
but no one was standing in the door
way. Then, ere one of them could
move, the door slowly closed itself
again. Immediately one of tho
young men jumped up, pulled the
door open and stared up and down
the hall, but there was absolute si
lence and no one about.
Some years ago a gentleman was
seated at a table busily writing. At
the moment he was alone in the
house. Suddenly he heard the pat
ter of feet outside the door and then
the* sound of a dog barking. Going
outside the room, he saw to his sur
prise that his dog had found its way
from the garden into the house and
for some reason was violently bark
Crash ! The room behind him was
suddenly in darkness, and a smell
of escaping gas pervaded the air.
Directly he understood what had
happened and hurried to seal up the
brof on pipe of the chandelier. The
latter was lying in a thousand pieces
on the floor.
But for the mysterious instinct
that caused the dog to enter the
house and attract this gentleman's
attention he would probably have
been killed by the f ailing chandelier,
for he had been sitting directly be
"You say, madam," said a lf.wyer
to a woman in the witness box, "that
the defendant is a sort of. relation
of yours. Will you please explain
what you mean by that-ju,at how
you are related to the defendant?"
"IVelL it's jw-t like tbis. His first
wife's cousin and my second hus
band's first wife's aunt married
brothers named Jones, and they
were own cousins to my mother's
own aunt. Then, again, his grand
father on his mother's side and my
grandmother on my mother's side
were second cousins, and his step
mother married my husband's step
father ofter his father and my moth
er died, and his brother Joe and my
husband's brother Henry married
twin sisters. I ain't never figgered
out just how close related we arc,
but I've always looked on 'im as a
sort of cousin."
To Ward Off Stings.
Hornets md bees are not so apt
to sting a person if he keeps abso
lutely still, but this is not necessari
ly duo to the fact that they do not
see readily, but simply that they do
not recognize an enemy in a per
fectly stationary body. The accu
mulated intelligence of generations
has shown thom that still objects,
Uko posts, stones or trees, are not
enemies and that disturbance, of
their nests is always occasioned by
objects having power of motion. It
thus follows that if' a hornets* nest
be disturbed or if a wild boes' nest
be agitated danger of stinging is
much less if the person keeps per
fectly still?--St. Nicholas. ^

One of the legends of Searsport,
Me.: A man named Harrison was
much bothered by bears that invad

neighbor one day, he applied to him
for advice as to what could be done
to keep them out. The neighbor re
"Bears are fond of molasses. You
just make a trough and fi il it with
molasses and rum and put it where
they come into your field, and they
will drink it for the sake of the mo
lasses, and the rum will make them
drunk- so you can go in the morning
and knock them on the head."
Mr. Harrison followed this advice
and went to thc field the next morn
ing. There he founcr, not a bear,
but his neighbor drunk.
