The old town of Antnn lies on tha
left bank of the Arronx, 1 64 miles south
east of Paris. Here the boys Buona
parte were put to school, in January of
1779. The town is an epitome of Euro
pean history. It was the capital of the
brave iEdaans, whom Caesar overcame
in the first year of the Gallic war. Na
poleon, in his tenth year, arrived at the
gates. Be was pat under charge of the
Abbe Chardon, nephew of the General
Marbopuf. The latter devoted himself to
the interests of tho Buonaparte family,
and paid a part of the expenses.
Meanwhile the father and Marbopuf

lished as pensioners. Tho solicitation
was that tho yonng fellows should be
educated at tho expense of the state.
Marlxrnf invented a fiction, flecked with
fact, about the nobility of his wards;
and the petition was granted finally as
to Napoleon. But Joseph had now
passed the limit of his eleventh year,
and was no longer eligible unless by
violation of law. He must therefore be
diverted to the priesthood, while the
younger brother was assigned, at the
public charge, to tho military academy
at Bricnne-la-Chapelle, on the right
bank of tho Aubo, in the department of
the same name, a hundred and eighteen
miles from Paris. Thither be was trans
ferred in tho latter part of April, 1779,
and was admitted as a cadet.
At Antun, tho chief business had been
to teach him French. He applied him
self closely to this task, but not very
successfully. Ho learned to speak
French, brokenly, with an Italian ac
cent. To the end of his life he never ac
quired a nico knowlcdgo of tho adopted
tongue. His grammar was broken, his
composition thunderstruck, and his
spelling heretical. His practical knowl
edge of the language which he was des
tined to use for forty-two years in his
intercourse with men was sufficient; but
his mind was never tolorent of techni
calities. This trai t c neglecting the exactitudes
was strongly manifested from Napo
leon's childhood. Ho went as far as the
practical in whatever subject he touch
ed; but having Beized thus much, he
cared for nothing else. He desired cor
rectness in others, for that was useful to
him; but as for himself, ho wanted only
aggregato results and a knowledge of
their practical advantage. AH authors
havo commented on the inaccuracies and
lapses in the Napoleonic correspondence
and manuscripts. - It became his habit to
slur over, iu his rapid way, the errors
in his writing; and his arrogance seem
ed to convince him that, while correct
spelling was an accomplishment in ped
agogues, it was rather a fault in great
The young Bonaparte is described by
his master as beiug of solemn demeanor;
rarely laughing; never happy or mirth
ful; no disposition for playing; proud
and solitary; easily wounded; always
resentful; learning with lightning-like
rapidity, but stopping short of correct
ness; vain of his faculties; patriotism

foreign race with which his lot had been
cast; looking back regretfully to Corsi- j
ca, and (most unboylike) thinking more ,
of his country than ho did of his home
and mother. j
Already, before leaving Autun, the
pale littlo Bonaparte fell into frequent
quarrels with his French schoolmates
about the Corsican revolution! They in
sulted him with the charge that his '
countrymen had been cowards else
tbey would have won their independ
ence. To this he answered angrily that
if the French had outnumbered his poo- '
pie only four to one, the invaders would ,
have been defeated. Military calculation
Tho military academy at Brienne was
one of ten of like kind recently cstab- j
lished iu the kingdom. Besides t heso,
there were two higher schools, one at
Paris and the other at La Flechc. This ,
system had superseded another which .
had failed on account of its unpopular-1
ity. The military education and the right .
thereto was a plum for the nobles. Boys i
of the Third Estate bad therein no part !
or lot. In the schools were gathered the '
weakened reproductions of a moribund
nobility. The governors of the schools
were even as the cadets. The institu
tions degnerated, until there was a pop- i
ular reaction against them. There was '
a reform, headed by the Church. New
schools were established, and monks
were put in charge of them!
At tho tinio when the boy Napoleon
went to Brienne, the remarkable condi
tion was presented of a system of mili
tary schools in charge of the monastie
fathers. The Brienne academy was con
ducted by the Minim Fathers, good men
in their ww, but as sources of inspira
tion to lads with the clean o military
glory in their brains they were mere
dullness and obfescatioc! The courses
of study were mathematics, geography.
history, Latin, modern languages, phi
losophy, and such poor misnamed science
as might be squeezed from the sponge
of clerical dogmatism in the eighteenth
Such was the disciplinary fare which
was offered to the boy Napoleon. He
was now far removed from friends and
kinsmen. He made the acquaintance of
his schoolmates; admired one of them
Bourienne and seemed to love an
other Des Maris; but his character and
manner were rocks of offense to the rest
of the hundred and fifty. Nothing more
striking has been presented in personal
annals than the contrast which the poor
Uoxsicon lad, with his solemn face.
long, stiff black hair, haughty expres
sion, close-shut Italian mouth, solitary
pride oi bearing, ana unfashionable in
sular suit, afforded to the throng of
noble, mocking effeminates among
wnom ne was wasned up as from the sea.
On his entrance into the academy
which was a clean, well-ordered place
Napoleon brought from the Abbe
Char (ion certificates of moderate profi
ciency and the usual character-sketch
of himself as a pupiL But nothing pro
tected him from the inane animosity of
bis lellows. 1 hey jeered at him in a
manner that would havo driven a less
resolute spirit to despair. Had he been
complaisant, he might easily have won
peace, if not popularity; but his defiant
air seemed to challenge the attacks of
the contemptuous crowd.
Deep down in the situation lay the
provocation of povestv. The boy per
ceived tho disparagement to which he
was subjected on this score; and it mad
dened him not a little. His most trou
blesome characteristic was this that be
would not follow in anything. He would
lead. He would be first or nothing. As
sumption of leadership and tho air of it
brought on faiia still greater contumely.
The bitterness of the situation some-
timed came to the verge of bloodshed.
Once be got himself arrested for chal
lenging another to fight him on account
of an insultingromark about bis father.
The sullen boy went muttering to the
guard-bouse. Nor was he restored to
condition until Marbceuf had interceded
in person with the authorities.
Out of this epoch come some well-
known stories of the student Bonaparte
at Brienne. In course of time, his fellow-cadets,
understanding him better,
became first tolerant, and then friendly.
Friendship in the case of the proud and
arbitrary cadet meant subjection to his
will. While he could not be companion
able in sports, he could and would com
mand. The existence of the tradition
about his dividing his fellows into two
armies, building a fort in winter out of
suow (building it, too, according to the
principles of good engineering!), mak
ing a siege, with snowballs for bombs,
and with all the seriousness of Genghis
Khan carrying the place by storm, may
well attest his disposition and growing
ascendency at the academy.
The young Napoleon remained at Bri
enne from April of 1 779 to the year 1 784.
The inspector Keraliq, coming from
Paris to the military school, discerned
in the slender cadet from Ajaccio the
hints of promise. The method was in
such cases to send np students from the
minor academies to the Military School
of Paris. Sometimes promotion was
made directly to the navy; and this was
considered a great honor. It appears that
the inspector would have had Cadet
Bonaparte sent to tho fleet; bnt the offi
cer died before his wish could be fulfill
Accordingly, at the end of Napoleon's
course at Brienne, he was recommended
for promotion to the military school in
Paris. At this time, namely, in 1784,
when Napoleon was in his sixteenth
year, he was personally described by the
inspector in the following terms: "M.
de Bonaparte (Napoleon), born August
15, 1G9. Height, 4 picds, 10 ponces,
10 lignes( l metre, 59 centimetres, 3
millimetres 5 feet, 2.7 inches), is in
the fourth class; of good constitution,
excellent health, mild disposition (mis
take there. Inspector!). Is upright,
grateful; conduct very regular; has been
always distinguished for his application
to mathematics; is fairly acquainted
with history and geography; is weak in
all accomplishments (very true. Mon
sieur de Keralio!) and Latin. He will
make au excellent sailor; deserves pro
motion to the Military School in Paris. "
The character of the youug Napoleon
at this period of his career reveals in
one thing a depth and far-off sigh that
might well hare belonged to the force
ful years of his maturity. The thing re
lated to Joseph, his brother. As early as
tho coming to Autun. Napoleon excogi
tated the scheme to lodge his brother on
the fsafo ledge of the priesthood. Thus
would he have him out of bis way!
Given a military career for both, and
Joseph must be, by seniority, before
him. But nothing shall be before him.
Arguments fit for Kicholin are found
why Joseph shall enter the'hurch, rise
to distinction, be a Monscignc nr, and by
that way defend, support and advance
tho prospects of the family of Buona
parte. As fi me. I will accept the hard
ships of the military life; and maybe
something beyond! There are on record
several subtle communications written
by the young casuist, strongly urging
the priestly office as the one thing suit
able and advantageous for Joseph. Our
future king of Naples or Spain or both,
willingly obedient to the imperial scep
ter, shall testify to our prescience and
brotherly wisdom !

A JOURNEY TO INDIA.

"You recall perhaps, " said the re
turned East Indian, "that Colonel New
come in making his final visit home
from India came by the so called over
land route, across the desert from the
head of the Bed sea to Cairo? Thacke
ray, himself an East Indian by birth,
was sent to England as a child, but be
came by way of the cape of Good Hope
and St Helena and caught a glimpse
of the exiled Napoleon. There must be
yet a few persons living who recall the
time when Thackeray's voyage was the
one everybody made in going from In
dia to England, and there are, of course,
thousands that have made the caravan
journey, as it is only a quarter of a cen
tury since the opening of the Suez ca
nal. That last even has done more than
any other one thing to make life in
British India endurable, for the cutting
of the canal has reduced the journey
home to a fortnight less and brought
the round trip ticket down to 33. The
prico one way by the caravan route was
120, just about the cost of a trip
around the world in our day. Thacke
ray's journey was a matter of mouths,
Colonel Newcome's a matter of weeks,
that of the East Indian now a matter of
"Lieutenant Waghorn was the man
to lay down and establish tho caravan
route. It soon focanio a regular freight
and passenger lino. It was from Suez to
Cairo, a distance of 70 miles, usually
made in about three days. The freight
was carried on tho backs of camels, and
the passengers rodo in a rude diligence
drawn by mules. There were caravan
saries every five miles, whore the mules
were changed, and . at some of these
there was food to be had. Tho great
standby was 'spatchcock. Wbon the na
tives in charge of a caravansary spied
an approaching caravan, tbey instantly
rushed oat, caught some fowls, wrung
their necks, and an hour later served
them, scarce dead, to the travelers;
hence tho name spatchcock. That jour
ney across the desert was most trying
to women and children, and the railroad
from Sues to Cairo in 1859 was hailed
as a vast improvement over tho caravan
method of travel.
"Ten years later came tho canaL The
digging of tho canal practically de
stroyed Suez, for tho port is some dis
tance from the city, and a busy town

Levantines, of all eastern races, and
the equally vicious Europeans from ev
ery part of the continent seemed to
wake into activity only at the approach
of a ship. Then dancobonses, gambling
hells and every sort of evil resort opened
wido their doors to tho delayed traveler.
Perhaps it is better now, or possibly
worse, for in these days a single com
pany pays more than $ 1,000,000 a year
in tolls, and there is an almost contin
uous procession of ships through the
"The Sues canal is in some respects
the most wonderful waterway in the
world. As soon as the traveler enters it
he realizes that he is in the hands of the
French. A French speaking pilot takes
possession of the ship, and all officers of
the canal are Frenchmen. The gares, or
turnouts, wbero a ship waits to let an
other pass, are in the charge of old
French soldiers, and it is charming to
see how they beautify their arid sur
roundings. When tho sand of the desert
is watered, it almost bursts with bow
ers, and at every gare are a neatly paint
ed little house and a blooming garden,
while grass edges tbo canal, and the'
dreariest region on earth is transformed
by French thrift One of the most in
teresting sights to the canal in early
days was to see one ship meet another.
The passengers on each crowded for
ward with greetings and the waving of
handkerchiefs, and there were tears
from the outward bound at tho thought
of what the homeward bound were soon
to sea. Tbo meeting of ships is now no
longer a novelty. I once encountered
the Khedive Tewfik's yacht, with bis
harem on board, as we passed through
the canaL Of course wo caught no
glimpte of the ladies, but Tewlik and
De Lesseps, who was his guest came
out on the spenson beam to greet us,
and wo manned the yard with native
sailors in honor of the two.
"The canal passage is made in from
17 to 24 hours, and since tho use of
powerful electrio lights has made night
navigation in the canal possible the
journey from England to India is made
with few serious delays. It used to be
that all the coal for ships traversing
the Bed sea was carried across the isth
mat on the backs of camels. Ships now
commonly coal at Port Said. One of the
curious features cf navigation in the
canal and tbo Red sea is the absence of
large sailing craft The Red sea is so
hemmed in with mountains on either
coast that the progress of a large sailing
ship would be extremely slow and at
tended with danger from sudden squalls.
Such a passage ox the Red sea would be
almost intolerable, for the beat is op
pressive, and tha monotony of the arid
sand hills ashore is tedious beyond ex
pression. There are lighthouses along
the shores, and there is no drearier lot
than that of the lighthouse keeper on
the Red sea. Few persona on this sido
of tho world realize that the sea is 1,-
500 miles long.

On BottI Convinced- Farther
Hi IIsmm, Sclatle Rheumatism,
That Tired Foetlng.
" I read that one bottle of Hood's
Sarsaparilla would convince me of its
merits, and I have found this true.
"Some two years ago two ulcers
appeared on my hip, which, after being
sore a long time, broke and diKcliargcd.
I also was attacked with sciatic rheu
matism, nir log being drawn so tliat I
could hardly get around the honc. I
hardly knew what a good night's rest
was. The hip trouble caused me great
trouble and annoyance, and eczema
appeared on my hands. Naturally I
began to run down, was weak and low
spirited. The physician told ine my
hip would have to be operated ukii
before I would get nny better. Af
last I decided to take one lMtle of
Hood's irsapnrilln. In three weeks
my rheumatism entirely disappeared
and I found tli.it
I Was on the Gain.
This was very encourayinr, and I found
that I could slep well at night My
health steadily improved, and, of course
I continued taking Hood's Sarsaparilla.
My hip has been restored to pood con
dition, the pores have stopped discharg
ing and healed up. I am able for the
first time in irce years to do my own
lioiiRcwork, and can walk two miles
without trouble. I have no symptoms
of rlieumatism; that tired feeling has
entirely left me. My neighbors say I
look better than for many years. 1
do earnestly recommend Howl's Sar
saparilla to all sufferers, especially
those afflicted with impure blood."
