Prince Napoleon, the second sou of
Jerome Bonaparte by his second wifey
the Priucess Frederika of Wurtemburg,
is the senior living representative of
his family. H1e is now fifty-seven
years of age. le has been noted for
years as an extreme democrat, although
more redontly he was a qualified sup
porter of the emnpire, and may now be
described as a conservative republican.
After the revolution of 1848 lie was the
leader of the "Alountain," a fact for
over held up against him by the
DeMorny's, the Persigny's and the
Rouher's, who wrought and waxed fiat
on the subsequent coup d'olat. Prince
Napoleon does not like to fight. It Is
true that he has commanded an in
fantry reserve at Alma and Inkerman.
But he threw up his command in great
haste, saying lie was ill; and for this
the nickname of "Plon-plon" was be
stowed upon him by his admiring coun
trymen. But if lie did not attack the
Russians he attacked the Orleans fam
ily with great spirit in the French Sen
ate In 1861. A fiery debate ensued, and
the Duke d'Aumale sent Prince Napo
leon a challenge. . The invitation was
declined, and since then the Prince can
scarcely the said to have been a favorite
with the French army. There may be
two opinions about his co rage or about
the construction to be placed on his
conduct in the cases described; but
there can - be no doubt that lie is the
kind of man to whom Napoleon the
First would have written insulting let
ters, and whom he would have assigned
to humiliating offices. le is scarcely
the man, in other words, to stir up the
military enthusiasm of the French
people. Prince Napoleon has been cor
dially detested by the party of the en
pire. The late Emperor always thought
him half-hearted, although lie was re
conciled to him after more. than one
season of allenation. A memorable in.
stance of this followed the delivery by
the Prince of a speech on theiunveiling
of a statue.of Napoleon the First in
Corsica, in 1865. These things are of
course remembered But it may be
possible, if not to forget, to put them
aside. Stranger things have happened
even in the history of this strange dy
nasty. Time was when the first Na
poleon was as wild a republican as the
best or the worst of them. Each of his
steps toward the throne was insidious
and plausible. It always appeared that
he, like Richard the Third, had great
ness thrust upon him. It was, as Hlaiz
litt says, the repeated attempts made
against the life of the First Consul
which gave a handle "for following up
the design which had been for soene
time agitated of raising him to the imi
perial throne and making the dignity
hereditary in his family. Not that in
deed this would secure him from per
sonal danger, though it is true thUt
'there's a divinity doth hedge a king;'
but it lessened the temptation to the en
terprise and allayed a part of the
public disquietude by proviing a suc
cessor." The democratic stains on the
escutcheon of "Plon-plon" may then
boeoffnood. "The~& miterosts of Frnco"
may obliterate as often again as before
what it is convenient tolhave forgotten.
Even the dislike of thme army might
be softened or dissipated. A br'illianat
military stroke oaref'uliy plannied and
unattended by personal risk, has before
now at the right moment nmadle a hero
out of p~ooreCr stuff' thaun even .Pr'inco
"Prloni-plon." But even waiving those
expedienits an eligible Bonapar'te might
hope to be President of the Republic mi
1880 no less than in 1848. Admitting
the diff'erences of the situations, in
cluding the sharpest of' the lessons of
experience, the more democratic a Bon
aparte candhidate the better the chance
of his election. Again, wvhen glory as
not even mentioned by a French Chief
Magistrate in his inaugural address,
military Success or popularity is plainily
of less consequence thanm usual, and
herein further hopes are suggested for
the future of Prince Napoleon. I C,
however, afrer' all said and done is to
be put aside, the Imperialists have a
manif'est ahterniative. In his son, and
the grandson of Victor Napoleon, now
seventeen year's of age, there romalns a
Napolon the Fifth, (quite as available
as Henry the Fifth for the Bourbons,
and who, in default of his father, could
be worked into an effective substitute.
A Dinneri Intoerferene,
When the late General Bligh of the
British Army wasw a Captain in a marcing
regiment lhe and his lady were traveling ini
Yorkshire, and put up at an inn, where
there happened to be only as munch ini the
larder as would serve them for dinner,
wvhich was immediately ordiered. lIn the
mean timie some sporting gentlemen of Vie
country came in, and finding there wvas
nothing in thme house but what was getting
ready for another company, asked who
they were. The landlord toldh thenm lie dk1(
not directly know, but ho believed the
gentleman an' Irish ofnicer.
"Oh, wvell, if lhe's Irish," said one of the
company, "a potato will serve him. Here,
water, take this watch"--pulling out am
elegant gold watch-"carry it upstairs,
and ask this gentleman what's o'clock."
Mr. Bligh, as may well be imagined, was
not pleased at such an impudent message,
but recollecting himself a momcnt, took
the watch from the waiter and desired him
to present, his compliments to tihe company,
and ho would tell them before lhe departed.
This message, however, caused lis (limner
to be sent up to him ini quiet ; after eating
which he clapped a couple of large horse
pistols under hiis arm, and, going down
stairs, introduced himself into the com-.
pany by telling them lie was come to let
inom know what o'elock .it was ; but first
he begged to be informed to which of the
gentlemen the watched belonged. Hero a
dead silence elisued. Mr. Bligh then began
on his right hand by asking them severally
the question. Each of them denied know
ing anything of the cireumstance.
"Oh, then, gentlememd," says he, "I find
I have mistaken the conmpany. The waiter

Drifting a lundred Miles.
Recently, about five miles below
Chester, in the Mississippi river, a boy
of about seven years of age was found
in the river, floating on the trunk of a
cottonwood tree. Two farm hands,
Henry Schultz and Joe Maxey, who
are employed on the farm of John
Kleinwater, were crossing the river in
a skiff when they noticed the trunk of
a tree floating on the river and some
thing lying on the top of it. Their
curiosity was excited, so they pulled up
to the huge tree, whieh was about. a
hundred feet long, and were greatly
aistonished at finding that the object was
a young boy. The little fellow was ly
ing in a hollow which had formed in
the trunk. lie was unconscious and in
a high state of fever, while his wasted
form and emaciated appearance bespoke
.long abstinence from food. [e had
evidently been floatingon the trunk for
flve or six days. Thle two men lifted
him into the slitlY, rowed ashore and
carried h im to Mr. Klio'iwater's farm
house, antd medical assistance was called
in. The boy remained for twenty-four
hours in a comatose condition, but at
last began to give signs of conscious
ness. Stimulants were continually
given him and lie drank so greedily of
beef tea that Doctor Schuiidt had to
moderate the quantities. Slowly and
gradually his pulse begpun to beat at the
renewed vigor, and under the careful
treatment ' and nursing lie rallied
considerably, so thac the doctors are
now sanguine of his ultimate recovery.
He is still unable. to contverse, so that it
is not known who lie i- or where lie
comes from, or how he got into such a
perilous 1ix. The boy has a fair com
plexioii, light brown curly hair and
blue eyes. On his left arm there is a
mole near the shoulder, while on the
right arm the vaccination mark is
plainly visible. 'Ile was dressed in
Jeans 'pants, and cotton shirt, and wis
without shoes or stockings. The pre,
sumption is that the boy must have
drifted on the trunk from some point
near the mouth of the Missourt River.
Probably lie ventured on the trunk
while it was lying cloe to the banks,
and by some means It became detached
and was carried down the stream by the
current. The trunk, fortunately, was
adintrably i'tted for a resting-place, as
1r was gnarled and hollow centers were
formed in it. Had it not been so the
poor little fellow inust inevitably have
met with a watery grave. The little
fellow has certainly had a most miracu
lous escape. le must at least have been
floating on the trunk for live or six
days, durlu-g' which time lie of course
had no suitonance. The mcn wlho took
hilmi oil the trec sa1id that In one place
the bark appeared gnawed,which would
indicate that the Iad, to appeaske the
pangs of hmunmger, actually nibbled and
ginawed at the tree.

A Noighbor who Wanted Everything.

sons next door to tie any longer.
They're the awfullest people to borrow

much, although when a woman bor
r'ows high priiced sugar and Java coffee

But they've borrowed pretty near cv..

Fitting in small-pox,.
Mr. Gregory, of Mesohantai' College,
Blaekpool, believes that "pitting." the
8sad and permanent result of small-pox
ouight rarely be seen in any clvilized
community, le starts withl these facts:
that poor p~eoplc are pitted least, the
higher class plenty of light, and no
class of people are pitted under their
dress. Poor people have loss light in
their rooms, the higher class plenty of
light, and muder the dress there Is less
light than in either case. The expla
nation is a scientific cne. The. sun
light consists of three primary colors.
Th'ie red, the blue, and the yellow rays,
have distinct and characteristic prop
erties. The yellow gives us light, the
red gives us heat, and the blue aetin
ism. It is the aetinic influence of the
blue rays which, in Mrs Grogory's
theory, causes "pitting." No seed
will germinate, and young plants.will
soon perish, if the chemically. aetIie
rays, that is, the actlnlo rays, are filter
ed from the sunlight. A yellow blintd

ROAtD DRAINAGE.-Erery observing
prsoni has noticed how much more
urable gravel roads are where they
pass over our bottom lands naturally
underdrained by a bed -of gravol but
a few feet below the surface, and how
frequent the demabds for repairs areon
the clay lands.. Now, my proposition
Is to place those latter, practically in
the condition of the former. Nor
would I conflie tile draining to the
construction of gravel or broken-stone
roads. In the itmprovements of ordin
ary dirt roadj, I would note all places
that dry up Hlowly and apply the tile
remedy as the moot elfectual cure, and
in the longrun thecheapest. Thesub
soil water being thus removed a grade
of even the ordinary loam would soon
become compact and comparatively
permanent. - Wagon loads of gravel
are swallowed up in such "mud-holes,"
from year to year when road-working
season0 comes a'ound, and still the
"mud-hole'" is there and will be there
as long as the cause of it .remains.
A stviNG may be effected in the con
sumptjon of oats for horses by simply
soaking them in tepid water.' Practi
cal experiments which have been made
show that by this method the rations
for each animal may be reduced one
third. Horses whose teeth have seen
their best days manticate the grain in its
ordinary condiltin lusuillciently, and
younger animals often eat so greedily
that the greater portion of it is swallow
ed whole. This waste may be obviated
by the simple mnethod recommended,
whlch so far softens the grain that it is
more completely mastiented and diges
ted, and consequently yields more nu
triment. Three hours is a sutlicient
longth of time to soak the rain, pro
vided the water is not too cold.
