THE DAILY CAIRO BULLETIN; THURSDAY MORNING. APRIL 27, 1882,
, A Eelic-Duntor Caught
Referring to niistaken Jrius about rel
ics recalls tho story in a Gorman piipor
about certain professor, which is a
parnllul of th Kill Stump ailviMituro of
"nckwick. A orman aiititiuiu'y
made the delightful discovery that a
stone placed ovtT a stablo door bore tho
inscription 10X1. "I must liavp tliM
stone in mv collection, cost what it mav."
thought tho savant. Culling n UTitint
farmer, wiio was tlio proprietor, mc
professor said to him. eagerly: "Did you
obtain this rtono from tho ciistlfl ruin on
Uio hill yonder?" "It may bo that my
grandfather fetched it theme when he
luilt the stable," was the rejily. The
antiquary then asked what lie would
tako for tho stone. "Since you appear
to bavo a fancy for it," said the farmer,
"give mo forty guilders and I will bring
it to your house." "Katlior a large
sum," naid the professor; "but bring it
to my residence, and vou shall have tho
money." When in duo course the farm
er brought the stone upon a truck, tho
toalous antiquary turned it over to re
fresh his eyes with tho sight of ltd fen-
without anniety tliat it might have been
damaged in iw removal. "Why." he
exclaimed, "what is this? This is not tho
right frtone. On the stone 1 bought from
you the date was 10S1, while this bears
the very modern date 1801, which proves
that the other was exactly 720 yenrs
older than this. "Do not trouble about
that" said the peasant "The masonx,
you see, sir, turned the stone upside
down when they set it in tho doorway,
because it fitted better that way. Vou
con turn it whichever way you like, but,
of course, 1 must have the money agreed
The professor, it is said, at once paid
the whole sum, and gave the man a
present besides to take away the stone
and say no more about the matter.

When the Emperor William was iu
Paris in 1M7 he visited the Salle des
Marcchttux at tho Tuileries with Marshal
Canrobert for cicerone. He asked the
Marshal to tell bim tho name of each
warrior as lie stood before his efligy.
"And who is tlusr asked the Prussian
King, as ho approached Davoust's bust.
"Davoust was the answer. "And
what was his title?" ."Ho was Prince of
Eckmuhl," was the Marshal's reply. A
moment's silence, and then, suddenly,
and with a firm voico, the King astound
ed his iutcrloeiitor with tho speech: "Ho
was also called tho Due a'Aucrstadt;
Prussia knows this" a reference to Div

inson he had become entitled to $115,000
