There w cro tho great National Museum, tho Sonato chamber, tho old and magnificent throne room ot Napoleon tho Great, and tho Church of Notre Dame, where Napoleon was crowned in 1801. I visited Malmalsou, tho old homo of Josephine, which Is about ten miles from Paris. There tho beautiful Urn press spent somo of her happiest aud somo of her most ndjcrablo davs, and thcro she died. It wa9 lu that old mansion that ho entertained tho camp and court of Napoleon's rmplro In Its mo6t prosperous du)s; and It wns there that she last saw Napoleon after tho battlo of Waterloo. Again It was In a room on tho ground lloor of that old mansion tint tho fatal dlvoico w as signed. Joscphlno's bed room chamber stands to-day us It did when sho fitted It up so tastefully.

In tho rear ot tho croat Involutes building rest tho remains of tho First Napoleon in tho most magnificent placo of tho kind that I ocr saw. "How docs It compare with tho tomb3 of our great men?"

Now T.ltrlit Thrown Upon It by Ono of Its Clilof Uxiiiiuiidors. A Cumo reporter, wishing to gain fullor Information regarding tho mysterious sclonco of thcosonhy, in which somo In terest has recently hcon created, callod upou Dr. Veritas Damphool, tho well-known scientist, whoso name Is suggestive of all that Is best In his pecultartchoolot thought. Dr. Damphool kludly received tho reporter In his well-stocked library, and before en tering upon tho subject, produced a bottlo of something which, If not In tho highest degree spiritual, was cortaiuly stronger than tea. After a tow minutes pleasantly spent In conviviality tho doctor told tho reporter that ho was ready, so far as tho rulo of retlcouco observed by such scientists ns himself per mitted, to cross with him tho border ot tho occult world. Tho reporter hoped that in his search for knowledge ho would not bo required to project his doublo, ontor any unsccnblo space, or to bo tho uuw tiling wit ness ot any astral visit. Dr. Damphool as sured him 110 would not. An elucidation of Boul-analysls was then asked for and given, from which It was mado perfectly clear to tho reporter that by tho adept In thcosophy tho soul of man was lust as readily capable ot division Into Its Iraponderablo dynamic atoms as tho body uud soul wero sutceptlblo of artificial dis tention, Tho possibility of tho 0110 act be ing proved, tho reasonableness of tho other became self evident. An explanation of tho difference between an actual separation ot tho soul from tho body, which would result In death (tho re porter thought this was uot exclusively Known to tho thcosophlsts) and a mora temporary escape of tho soul or "projection of tho doublo," was then given, from which tho reporter got tho Idea that tho human body was n kind of corkod bottlo under pressure, the cork being tho soul, and ready to lly awav when released. Now, If a string were tied to tho cork It, as tho doublo of tho bottle, could bo projected without dliister, connection being yet maintained between It and tho bottlo, but without tho stilng, complete separation would occur, which would bo death to tho bottle, whatever iiappeuid loiuocoriv. "I think this cork uud string Illustration," said Dr. Damphool, enthusiastically, "far more satisfactory than that recently usod by a brothoi scientist of a tei kettle nud un escape of steam lu au unbroken lino ot I11 lslhlo atoms." "Par moro 6atlsfactor)," asseuted tho ro poiter. "Seeing Is believing " "Just so, ni) joutig friend," said tho emi nent .Suwiif, who, to a question put to him whethir It was truo that 11 theosophlst could lead n man's most secret thoughts, replied affirmatively, looking tho blushing reporter full lu tho face, who, ns It was his night off nnd ho had olhcr engagements, thought It now prudent to withdraw 'I ln-:'nsf of II.

It may bo n matter of national Interest llko tho navy, or It may bo a very small affair, but Mr. Halo Is sure to tackle It. Tho Senato has only been a few da) sin session, but Mr. Halo has tackled something already. TliU tlmo It Is Mr. S. S. Brown ot Malno, whom ho has yanked from tho comparative obscurity that surrounds tho position ot chairman ot tho Democratic Central Commlttgo of his native pines right Into tho kecu sunlight ot nntlonal publicity. Mr. Brown got up yesterday morning, If notunhonorcd, at least unsung. Ibis morn ing ho rises from his couch to find himself mado famous b) Mr. Ilnlo and tho fern grcsioual llccord. Mr. Halo's presont tacklols to find out whether Mr. Broun has not been making a great deal of mouoy out of pcoplo who have been appointed fourth cl iss postmasters In Malno. Ho has induced tho Senato to pass a res olution calling upon tho Postmaster-General for any Information that ho may havo In connection with a letter which Mr. Brown Is allogcd to ba 0 w rltten to .a fourth class postmaster, in which tint Incumbent Is told that tho w rltcr has fixed things for him nnd 6iiggC6ts that any contiibullon that tho postmaster may mako toward de fraying tho writer's expenses In Washing ton will, llko tho traditional run ot small favors, bo thankfully received. Allot which goes to show tho versatility of Mr. Halo's power of tackling; for it will bo seen that ho would Just as soon tacklo a mnu from bis owu Stato as from an) other. Ho shows no favor, Mr. Halo doos uot, but wo do not think that tho Postmaster-General will bo long In answering tho resolu tion. It w as reported around tho Postofllco Department somo tlmo ago that a Now Eugland member ot Congress was "making It big" by securing postofllco commissions for others ou tho basis of commissions for himself, 'iho matter was investigated, aud tho letter which tho now historic Brown ot Maine is said to havo written was among tho things that camo to tho surface Tho result, however, was that nothing uiion which charges against anybody could bo bnEcd could bo uncartheJ.

An Aiiliniiti'd Dobiili! nml (Irrat Umtii' linlly of Opinion. Ou tho assembling of tho Federation ot Trades and Labor Unions this morning at Grand Army Hall, tho quostlou of tho eight hour law and tho preamble nud res olutions, printed exclusively In )ostcrda)' CiilTic, was at onco taken up for discus sion. John S. Klrchncr nt l'hlladolphla, the young dclegato of Iho Clgirmikors' Intel national Union, nnd n man who Ins risen lo considerable promlncucu lu tho discussion ot labor questions, opened tho debato by stating that tho Worklnsmen of Amcilcn possessed more thorough knowlcdgo of Its Import nice than cverleforo In tho history of tho iigltillou. 1 hey clamor for tho benefit which will ro suit If tho law bo put Into opcritlou.

'J ho largo number of titicm plojtd pioplo In thugrcit Industrial cen ters Is duo to tho fact that machinery Is being Itiveutcd so rapidly that It Is hardly possl blo for one half to bo cmplovcd unless tho hours ot labor bo reduced If, though, wages, by n practical application, bo re duced, tho worktiigmaii would attain tho greatest success lu many )ears Instead of worklntr ten hours n day higher wages would oventuilly result tu determin ing tight hours 11 leg il da) 's work 'Iho Clgarmnkcrs' International Union Indorso tho utterances and bellovo lu tho eight-hour law and aro read) and w llllng to put It Into operation by Ma) 1, 1SW Means of assist ing tho weaker organizations In tho opera tion of tho law or n failure would uiidoubt cdl) follow. Tho agitation Is ono of long standing and Is generally participated lu by nil labor organizations. Tlio press of tho country sympathizes with tho Federation and the caueo uud favors tho reduction of labor to eight hours per day Manufacturers nnd emplo) crs could bo found who would not only bo passive but would irlvo an nctlvo support to tho question. Ho also explained other wavs which they would bo assisted In earning out tho question Tho manufacturers look upon tho quostlou with n different view from which they till several ycaisago, nnd that adecrcaso In tho hours of 1 ibor means a benefit to tho worklngnian abetter quality of his work and assistance to ills brotherhood. Mr. E W Oyster, dclegato of tho I edera tlou of Labor of this city, said that all organized trados unions full) compre hended tho question and were urging It. Tho Plasterers' Union of this clt), at n re cent meeting, decided not lo wait until Ma) 1 to carry the eight-hour law Into cf feet, but unanimously decided to carry it Into effect Immcdlatcl). Thcrearon great many members of tho Typographical Union of this city who work by piece work lu private offices uud Government Printing Ofllco, and thoy are willing to reduco tho hours of labor to eight hours to glvo employment to tho members who are out of employment, btill tho Federation should bo c ireful In taking act'on on tho question, and not to bind ov cry organization to net that Is not strong enough to carry It out. It would bo policy to consult employers ou tho ques tion, as tho employ cm would never consent until mado nwnro that tho organized I ibor w as strong enough to enforco It. T ho olght hour law, ns p issed by Congress In lbilS, was never enforced It never covered tho ground fully, nud tho principal troublo th it beat It down wns tho contract system. Tho Government gavo out w ork by contiact nnd tho contractor w hen called to confoim to tho eight-hour law claimed that tho Govern ment hud nothing to do with the work, uud thus got tho better 0 workmen. Tlio only manner of successfully enforcing tho law Is b) tho combining ot thoworktngmen 'Iho body ho represented was on a standard to act ut an) tlmo, hut tho Federation had no power to enforco a strike on May 1, and that it would bo a great Injustice to unions not prepared to order tho strike without first being sure of tho success of tlio under taking. After considerable anlmited debato by others, on motion of E W Oystor, tho res olutions wore referred to tho commltteo on resolutions for report to morrow morning Representative Colo of Maryland was in troduced nud addressed tho meeting In favoi of tho proposed action.
