The San. New York, eives te
opinions which Mr. Dana has gath

experience, regarding the opportuni
ties journalism offers to generous
minded and well educated young
men, and regarding the best prepa

of wild enthusiasm in the French as
sembly in 1840 over an unexpected
proposal to-disinter the remains of
Napoleon at St. Helena and remoTe
them to Paris, and the august cere
monies attending the execution of the
project both at St. Helena and in

by Miss Ida M. Tarbell. In illustra

a series of very rare contemporary
