THE LAST NAPOLEON.
A NEW VIEW OF THE FRENCH
RULER, WHO WAS AN ENIGMA.
lrie Personality of Napoleon III Was
Difficult to Understand His Character
la Hard to Estimate HIa Reserve For
No story among the scores imbedded in
that remarkable book, "An Englishman in
Paris," a book now admitted to contain
the reminiscences of Sir Richnrd Wallace,
has interested ns like his description of
his first interview with Napoleon 111. The
future emperor was then only a candidate
for the presidency, and the men present
Caraignac, Thiers, Lamartine and Victor
Hugo deceived by his weary manner and
impenetrable look, and perhaps also by an
instinctive dread or distaste, set him down
either for an imbecile or a secret drunk
ard, an impression which spread fast and
far through the diplomatists of Europe.
Sir Richard, a keen observer who, though
liable to dislikes, weighed the great per
sonages of France in a careful balance,
shared for a moment in his friends' impres
sion, but after a few minutes' watchful
ness decided that they were wrong, "that
Louis Napoleon was himself the drug, and
that every one who came in contact with
him was bound to yield to its influence."
So strong was his impression that he evi
dently regretted in after life his failure to
warn his political acquaintances; but at
the time he was restrained by the dread of
ridicule. Many years afterward, when
Napoleon was firm upon his throne, min
ister after minister, diplomatist after
diplomatist, after months, or it might be
years, of intercourse with the new ruler of
t ranee, came to bir Kichard's opinion.
Louis Napoleon was not only a very able
man in certain directions he was no ad
ministrator and a bad judge of men but
he was to a certain extent an original one,
with occasional flashes of insight; but he
had in a high degree a quality which in a
lower degree we lielieve to be cornmon
among men of certain kinds of ability, but
which Is seldom either described or dis
cussed. His presence positively lowered
the intellectual force of those to whom he
spoke, so that they talked and advised,
and above all planned, with less capacity
than they naturally possessed. That seems
a strange thing to say, but every one who
is at all observant will admit its converse
namely, that they know of men and
women whose presence in a room, even if
they are comparatively silent, definitely
and perceptibly increases the intellectual
brightness of all who are congregated
there. The latter may hardly know the
possessor of the influence, they may not tie
interested in his particular range of sub
jects, but they feel that they are at their
best, and that it is somehow because of
him, and this although they do not, it may
be, attribute to him genius or any excep
tional mental power.
lias force, for it amounts in some men
to a force, is said toliave Ieen possessed to
an amazing extent by the Marquis of Wel-
lesley, and the writer has heurd it attril
uteii, among men more recently deceased.
to Professor Palmer, whom, however, he
did not personally know. It is, we believe.
the Fee-ret ot much success in life and of
mary promotions which seem inexplicable
to the outide world, but which are de
fended by all in personal contact with the
promoted man, including those whom he
has sujwrsede.l.. As letween individual
and individual its strength is frequently
quite amazing, aud is commented on in the
constant remark that So-and-so is nothing
comparatively unless Such-a-one is by , s
side. So-and-so lieiug all the while much
the greater mau. W e do not believe in
deed that tl:e fact will lc denied, nor is it
usually wondered ut, the usual explana
tion, personal sympathy, being accepted as
sufficient it is not sufficient by any means,
but that is not our subject just now and
if this exhilaruting influence exists, why
not. its opposite?
The opposite is, however, rarely admitted
frankly, except as regards the rent ion of
individuals. The man is lucky who has
never had a friend or kinsman whose
presence he felt to !e depie'cg, whom,
though lie might respect, hi-n o- ''ke him.
or use him, he ftlt to be th- sop-ce of some
influence which depressed hi own energy
or keenness of perception, who was, in
fact. Sir Kic" ..id Wallace's 'opiate" incar
nate in the f esh. A man of that kind,
whose iiiflue ce extends to every one with
whom he is brought in contact, is of
course more seldom met with, but we are
convinced, as every intimate of Louis
Napoleon was, that he exists, and to ex
plain him is a most difficult Intellectual
problem. I iversal fear will of course ex
plain him, aud does explain him in Prince
Bismarck's case, whose colleagues, when
he was in power, always seemed stupider
in his presence; but these men do not al
ways excite fear.
Ixmis Napoleon frightened nobody, and
was in no degree overbearing. The man
in ancient history who must have borne
mentally the closest resemblance to him,
Tiberius Cirsar, scattered death wholesale
for inadequate reasons; but Louis Napo
leon was essentially kindly to all but sus
pected assassins, pardoned grave errors
with too much readiness, ami was as com
pletely without his great uncle's liability
to outbursts of nugentlemaiily violence as
he was without his fascination. He had
not even a forbidding manner in the sense
that Sir Robert Peel had a forbidding man
ner, nor in the long array of charges flung
in memoirs at his head can we remember
one of want of politeness.
The dreary man. or rather, to coin a
uecessary word, the dicaryfying man, is
generally pol'te, and Indeed, were he not,
would iu m st men awaken instead of
repressing intellectual power. Anger
misdirects force, but does not make it tor
pid; and it is torpifying influence which
we are discussing now. To allege want of
"sympathy" is no explanation nt all.
Nobody of t he group assembled around Sir
Richard Wallace was seeking sympathy
from the expectant president, or com
plained In any way of its absence, and be
sides, if we compreheud the memoirs
which refer to him, Louis Napoleon was
not entirely unsympathetic, but usually
tnught from his interlocutors the light he
iid not get.
Kjctreme cunuina. when perceptible, un
doubtedly slightly stupefies those who
watch it because it throws tnem into me
Belf defensive attitude which is a momen
tary form of egotism; but Louis Napoleon
wn not more cunning than a great many
men who did not exercise his especial in
fluence. Cardinal Mazariu did not stupe
fy people, or Louis XI. the embodiment of
that quality. Nor is extreme selfishness
anv sufficient clew, for the most perfectly
selfish buma' beiug described in history.

Mr. Albert Owens is a prominent
young fanner near Winnebago City,
Minn. He spent hundreds of dollars in
endeavoring to recover from nervous

editor of the Winnebago Press News.
An obituary of Mr. Owens appeared in
that paper, and was read by him. While
in this condition he began taking Dr.
