"For two weeks he interviewed me regu
farty, but answered most of his questions
himself. The Enterprise enjoyed a boom,
and the proprietor made his enterprising
lieutenant a present of a full suit of 'store
elothes' and raised his salary." St. Louis
Bismarck ami the Frenchman.
A little more than a quarter of a century
ago a wooilen leg nearly changed the
course cf European history. A year or so
before the war between Prussia and Den
mark, which preceded the great struggle
between France and Germany, Bismarck
was stayins at Biarritz. One morning,
accompanied by a Luge dog, he was walk
ing on a road which runs along the base of
a cliff protected from the sea by a low wall,
when he met an old French naval captain
Tith a wooden leg, powerfully built and
cf peppery temper. The dog became un
duly attentive to the captain's leg, and the
Frenchman struck at the animal with the
butt of his fishing rod. Bismarck swore,
and the sailor replied in the same dialect.
From language they came to blows, and
in a few moments Bismarck found that,
strong as he was. the angry Frenchman
was lifting him bodily on to the parapet of
the wall. Another minute and he would
have been in the rapid current of the sea
below, and what would hare been the
course of European history during the last
twenty-five years? But at tbe critical mo
ent help arrived by the irony of fate in
the shape of an equerry of the Emperor
Napoleon the timliertoed veteran was de
feated, and the unification of Germany and
of Italy was secured. All the Year Round.
