To be an Emperor has not of late years
been the sure and prosperous business
that it was prior to the French devolution.
Formerly an Emperor always commanded
a large salary, while his duties were very
light. The "Emperor of Russia, for exam
ple, merely had to wear his uniform on
state occasions, and to occasionally order
a tew unplfisant people- to emigrate to
Siberia? vTlie rot of his time belonged to
hiniM If alone, and he could do in all re-i-pects
precisely what lie chose. So, too,
the Emperor of Austria's duties were
merely nominal. Mctternich attend
ed to f lie imprisonment of Italian patri
ots, and saw that the Emperor received his
salary every Saturday night. 11 u Majesty
really took no active part in the work of
government, but devoted his whole time
to at!iuiiig himself, and improving his
mind in the society of ladies of wit and re
tineuient. At the present time, however,
the lile ot an Emperor in a really remu
nerative situation is a busy one. The late
Emporufi Napoleon ! had to provide hin
jh-o'! wMU war and" other renition;
the Enicror William has to atteivl to his
ann v, and the Emperor of Austria, though
his busy seaon is now over, has been
coinefied to do a great deal of hard work
in order to satisfy his Hungarian clients.
Mori-over, the business lacks the element
of security and jierniar.ence. An Empe
ror may Ik-discharged and set adrift in the
world without a character, almost at any
time. Napoleon 111. was thus discharged,
without even a week's warning, and it he
had lived, would never have been able to
resume business, unless the French peo
ple had kindly condescended to take him
bai-k. It "is no longer an easy

that we are about to speak. That he is.
as Emperors go, a wli-mming and ef
ticeiit Emperor, is generally conceded.
He has had a good deal of trouble with
turbulent Italians and Hungarians, and it
was felt that he ought to be permitted to
live out the rest of his life without further
annoyance. But Francis Joseph was tiot
born "to bft Ifftppy. hnd a Dew t rouble ol en
extremely "ptiUifal'Tiattire has come upon
him. His wife, who is a handsome and ir
reproachable woman, has suddenly left
him, and he is now pacing his lonely pal
ace, a prey to remorse and melancholy.
A short time since. London was sudden
ly astonished bv the arrival of the Empress
of Austria, who had traveled with great
rapidity and secrecy from Vienna to Lou
don, with but two or three attendants.
She only made the merest calls of ceremo
ny upon the Queen and the Princess of
Wales, and then withdrew to a furnished
cottage in the Isle of Wight. Here she re
sided in strict seclusion, and gave no satis
factory answer to the Question: ")Vheu

ed on, and no husband appeared, and Ixin
don made up its multitu Jinous mind that
Francis Joseph's wife had run away from
him, ami that he would either come after
her at an early day and compel her to re
turn, or would publish the usual warning
to tradetaMiahat. Jm arouldpa? no debts
contracted bT his wife. ' - . T I
But Francis Joseph evidenfly shranlc
from publicly announcing that his wife
had left bis 'bed and board. Jle tried at
first to bear his los in silence. VUien,
however, a man has Itcen accustomed, lor
a score of years, to the society and assist
ance of his wife, he finds it very difficult
to live without her. We can easily nnder
stand how th: Emperor found his break
fast badlj oofceil, and his dinner never
ready at the proper time. To be able to
smoke in the best parlor-was a poor com
pensation for ' the "absence of buttons on
his shirts. Perhaps, in the first moments
of his freedom, he congratulated himself
that now be could read in bed without be
ing urged to put the gas out and go to
sleep like a sensible Emperor; but when
he failed to find his night-shirt neatly laid
out for him,, and searched in vain for his
drcssuig-nruM'n ami slippers, ho felt the
mockery of freedom at such a cost And
so it came to pass that on day the Empe
ror announced that he intended to visit
England. , Of course, he did not say that
he was going to bring his wife back, but,
a soon as the Loudon Time mentioned
his intention, every one knew what the
Emperor's real motive was, and scolfingly
declined to believe tlie poor pretense put
forth by his friends, that he was coming
to London merely to see about takinz out
a new insurance policy on his house and
furniture in Vienna.
But no soonerdid the Empress hear that
her husband was coming for her than she
hastily left her furnished cottage and came
to London where she could alwa s find a
ool iceman within hail. Doubtless she took
pains to inform the Emperer tliat if he at
tempt to speak to her she would have
hiin arrested. At all events, the unhappy
Frances Joseph reconsidered his intention,
and still remains in Vienna, waiting in
vain for the return of his runaway wile.
What is the cause of the quarrel which
has thus divided a once happy pair can, of I
cour-, only be conjectured. The current

Showing the-Boys in Washoe how to
, x Shoot. "
Recently, at a saloon on the Divide,
some men were discussing the shooting
aft" ray which occurred during the morning
between tlie two brothers-in-law, Fallman
and Ward. It was agree on all hands that
it was shocking bad shooting a discredit
to Washoe. At List a Piocue man banter
ed a (iomstock man, whom he knew to be
a good shot with a pistol, to go out in the
back yard with him and do some shooting,
just to show the 005 s how it should be
done. In the saloon was a box of eggs,
and what the Piochor proposed was that
each fchoot two eggs off the. bare head, of
the other at the distance of ten paces, the
one missing to treat the crowd. The
Comstocker was bound not to be bluffed
by a man from the other end of the State,
so to the back vard all hands adjourned.
Each man usil hU own six-shooter. The
( omstocker first "busted" his ejrg on the
top of the Tioeher's head, which exploit
was loudly applauded by all present. It
was now the Piochcr's turn to shoot and
an egg was produced to be placed upon
the head ol the Comstocker, but when he
removed his hat there was a great laugh,
for tlie top of his head was as smooth as a
billiard ball. For full ten minutes all
hands tried in vain to make an egg stand
on his head. It couldn't be done. The
Piocher then taunted the Comstocker with
having gone into the arrangement know
ing that he was safe. The latter told him
to set up bis egg and it was all right he
was there. The Piocher went into the sa
loon, and a moment after came out with a
small handful of flour, which he dabbed
upon the bald head ol the Comstocker,
and then triumphantly planted in it his
egg. fell back ten steps, and then knocked
it off. The Comstocker then told him to
set up his second egg and shoot at it. as he
didn't want his head chalked twice during
the game. This was done, and the wreck
of a second eg streamed oyer the Com
stocker's pate. The Piocher now stood
out with his last egg on his head. The
omstocker raised his pistol and fired.
The Piocher bounded a yard into the air,
and the egg bounced whole from his head.

Leatherette A New Material.
The British Trade Journal describes
the above artich; a new patent imitation
of leather as follows : It is so good an
imitation that a superficial observer would,
in nine cases out ot ten, take it tor the
real article. The grains of the diflerent
kinds of leather, such as basil, seal, moroc
co, etc.. are reproduced with a fidelity
quite remarkable. In the process ol
"graining," a real skin of leather of any
given description, which it may be desired
to imitate, is t ken as a mold, and lrom
this an impression is obtained on sheets of
fibrous pulp by the exercise of enormous
nnuBiim 'tiia tli. irrain if ilia imitti.
tion article is an actual fac-simile of that of
the real. Leatherette is obtainable in any
color, and, while it is only about one-eight h
the cost of leather, possesses some mani-
lest advantages over the latter, wnicn win
scarcely fail to make it a commercial suc
cess, t or instance, it is stronger man
leather of the same thickness, and is of
uniform Quality, so that forty or fifty
forms may be cut at the same time, while
the blemishes that occur in leather neces
sitate each form being cut singly, and that
by experienced, and therefore expensive
hands. It is not so prone to soil, and is
waterproof. The scoj)e ottered in difler
ent trades for the utilization ot such an ar
ticle is obviously great. Upholsterers, hat
liners, box makers, purse makers, book
binders, etc., may, among others, turn ii
to useful account. For book-binding it is
admirably adapted, and probably in this
branch of trade will work no small revo
lution, seeing that it affords handsome and
realistic bindings at such a reduced cost
There can be no doubt that leatherette is
an important invention.

great deal of attention 18 required ; much
more, indeed, than people generally sup
pose. Never use new bread for making
any kind of toast, as it eats heavy, and, be
sides, is very extravagant. Procure a loa
of bread about two days old ; cut off as
many slices as may be lequired, not quite
J inch in thickness ; trim off the crusts
and ragged edges, put the bread on a toasting-fork,
and hold it before a verj clear
tire. Move it backward and forward un
til the bread is nicely colored ; then turn
it and toast the other side, and do not
F lace it so near the lire that it blackens.
)ry toast should be more gradually made
than buttered to;isf. as its arreat beauty
consists in its crispness, and this cannot be
attained unless tlie process is slow aim tne
bread is allowed gradually to color. It

AN tCOOMICAL bTEAM KETTLE. A
lady communicates to the Cottage Hearth
her method of extemporizing a steam ves
sel for cooking. She says : "The most
convenient and economical apparatus for
steaming that 1 have ever used is tne loi
lowing: Take the dinner kettle that
comes with a seven or eight-inch stove.
place in the bottom of it half a brick nicely
washed. Dour in water to nearly or quite
cover the brick, and set it over the fire.
when it boils, or nearly so. set in your
bread or pudding dish, and cover closely
witn a un cover, oi conical iorm, hiui a
rim set on the edge so that it will fir. the
kittle closely, and suffer no steam toes
cape, it tins cover ooes not come wun
the kettle, you can get one maoe ai uie
tin-shop for half a dollar. The flat cover
throws the steam back on to your bread,
and cannot be made to lit as nicely. This
arrangement has the advantage over a
steamer set over the kettle, in that it brings
your bread much nearer the tire, requires
much less fuel, raises it lighter and cooks
it more thoroughly. All batter and berry
puddings, and even biscuit and custard
puddings, are cooked very nicely in this
manner. A breakfast Johnny-cake may
be cooked in this way with mucli less fuel
than it would require to bake it. An In
dian pudding, made as for baking, can be
steamed over a fire that would have little
effect upon the oven of a large stove. Ce
careful not to fill the dish too full, as
steaming raises the pudding more than
bakin"-. Stir it down once or twice. I

Capital Punishment in England.
About 1807 a poor woman with two
children, one at the breast, stole from in
side a shop door a piece of linen worth
some seven or eight shillings. She, how
ever, had not proceeded far when the re
pented of her crime, and was returning to
the shop with it when she was arrested.
She was tried at the Old Bailey, convicted,
and condemned to death. The jury aud
the prosecutor unanimously recommended
tlie woman to mercy, on account of her
husband having been pressed as a sailor,
her starving condition at the time,andher
previous unblemished character. But all
in v:iin. Tlie Judze refused to indorse the
application, and the woman was executed
at Tyburn, the child being taken from her
breast at the foot of the gallows, in tne
minds of a large majority of the public
this execution created great indignation,
and a bill was brought into Parliament to
abolish tlie punishment of death for steal
ing in a shop to the value of five shillings.
This bill was at first thrown out in the
House of Peers, the Judges being against
it. The bill subsequently passed into law.
On the introduction into the House of
Lords of a bill for the abolition of the pun
ishment of death for stealing in a dwelling
house to the value of forty shillings, the
majority of the Judges were against it.
Lord EllenborouL'h was particularly ener
getic in his opposition, arguing, as the law
stood, it worked well,and why then should
it be altered? One of the Peers was so
struck with the validity of the learned
Lord's arguments that he said : "We shall
not be able to place our heads with safety
on our pillows if that bill parses luto
law I" In the thirty years from 179'J to
1829, for offenses airaiiist the Bank Act
nlnne. 2 men were capitally convicted
and 1,161 were transported ; yet, till pub
lic opinion became too strong to be disre-
o-nrded. the Judges offered little opposition
to such atrocious cruelty. The Saturday
