Tws on a dark and starless night
I beard and saw an awful sight
Me thought I saw the gulf below
Where all tbe dying drunkards go
My awful woe no tongue can tell
Is this my place tbe drunkards bell
I heard another mournful sound
Amid a group still lower down
I raised my bead and beard them tell
This is tbe place where Bacchus dwells
Around him stood a weeptug crowd
With noses red and voices loud
Tbey gnashed tbelr teeth and sighed and
Tbis is tbe whisky sellers home
I traveled on and got there at last
Then tried lo take a social glass
But every time I stirred it well
I thought about the devils bell
I dashed it dowaand left the place
And went lo seek redeeming grace
I bowed my knees to Jesus throne
And raised my volcu in humble prayer
The very moment fatlb begun
Ten thousand Joys around me sprung
Then I went borne to change my life
And see my long neglected wife
I found ber weeping by ihe bed
Because ber infant boy was dead
I told her not to cry and weep
Because ber babe had gone to sleep
Ills bappy soul had fled nway
To dwell with Christ through endless day
I took her by her pate white band
She was so weak she could not stand
I ald ber dowu and breathed a prayer
that God would bless and save us there
Then I went to temperance ball
To take a pledge amongthem all
Tbey met me with a welcome band
Five sober years have passed away
Since first I bowed my knees to pray
And still Im living a sober lite
Have a good home and a lovely wife
Ob may tbe Legislative hand
Enact good laws Ibrougbout the land
And stop old whiskys onward course
From all the mountains to the coast
Then drunken crimes will have to flee
And leave the land of Tennessee
Then all ber people will be blest
With sober care In every breast

Napoleon was born at Ajaccio
in the island of Corsico Aug 15
1769 and June 18 1815 broke a
molasses jug at Waterloo
At the ngo of ti years Napoleon
succeeded in securing a chance to
attend the military school at Bri
ennc He was a good pupil in
mathematics and early manifested
his heroism by standing up bravely
in bin threadbare garments and pa
thetic poverty among the sons ol

called him a jay

In 1785 Napoleon was made a
sub lieutenant ot artillery on a sal

his cigarettes had he used them
Napoleons family shortly after
ward joined the rebels as they
were called liccausc they under
took to free Corsica from the
French yoke But it was decided
that Corsica looked better in a
French yoke and so she continued
to appear in one Napoleon was
compelled to fight against his
own family in this campaign
It might be well here to say that
tha father gambled a good deal
and died poor The mother was a
noble resolute woman and to- her
the Little Corporal owed no doubt
the chief elements of his great
In 1793 Napoleon was made
captain by which his pay was
raised two francs or about 40
cents and another pair of red ar
tillery pantaloons bestowed upon
him They were very baggy and
cheap but they covered a Dravo
heart and by cutting armholcs in

his popularity was enabled to go

sat upon the bare stone lagging
ot his cell and by doing so day
after day somehow got the impres
sion that this is a cold cold world
But fortunately a revolution
broke out in Paris and while look
ing for some one to be shot at the
authorities suddenly thought of
Napoleon He was desperate
Death to him would be a large at
tractive boon He was called to
take command He gave the
French hoodlums a heroic pre
scription of grape and filled them
with fear and appendicitis He
drove them to their holes and
made them stay there Thus he
nipped a revolution in the bud and
laid the foundation for a vast
pedestal which he afterward had
the brief privilege of occupying
March 9 179G Napoleon mar
ried Josephine Bcauharnais the
widow of General Beauharnais
who dtfring the rovolution or
during the reign of terror had re
ceived in the neck a slight testi
monial from ihe French people
which left Josephine ad interim a
widow full of ginger and high pur
poses bereaved yet hopeful am
bitious high spirited well gaited
traveling well cither single or dou
ble and not afraid of the cars
Napoleon made the same error
here that so many great and gifted
men make Learned in mathe
matics tactics and tho general
business of command ho yet knew
little of women Any one who
lias ever been in Paris could have
told him that he must be firm
He should have studied woman
as ho would war for was she not
to become a part of the history of
But nay nay said Napoleon
I havent time to study this gen
tlo phenomenon I must wade in
blood for weeks at a time and gaze
down the cannons mouth a good
deal of tho time Why should I
put in my evenings at the
social functions and my afternoons
at the baseball game All that

He thought that Josephine would
joyfully remain at home and scrape
lint while he went- abroad piling
the ground with Mosloms slain or
scaled the Alps or anything else
that seamed to need it
Why docs a great man flatter
himself that he can go away fpr 10
or 1 years seeing the country and
leaving his wife at- homo to look
out at the window day after day in
a hotel watching tho bus go down
to meet No it or to take passen
gers to No to yet expect to find
her on his roturn younger and
more beautiful mora devoted and
more willing to occupy lie same
room 17 years more watching the

bus as it goes to meet No 11 or
take passengers to No 10 going
The biographer has little space
to digress here but had Napoleon
taken Josephine with him when
ever he went into a battle it would
have been great kindness a not
only to her but to the historian
If Napoleon and Josephine had
tought more against the common
enemy they would have been on
a better peace footing themselves
Suffice it to say here that in after
years they were separated child
less and Josephine who by her
intrigues whatever those may be
had made Napoleon a commander
was denied the solemn joy of shar
ing his glory and humiliation
Napoleon was called Lc Petit
Caporal and was honored 100 years
later Dy Having a cigarette nameu
after him but too late to swell
his proud cold bosom in the ill
ventilated sarcophagus which holds
all that is mortal of the first em
Can storied urn or animated bust
Back to tbe trachea woo tbe fleeting breath
Or joyous puns stir tbe mouldering dust
Or soothe the dull cold ear of death
No indeed I should certainly
say not
The marriage of Napoleon was
followed by one of the most bril
liant campaigns in history Eleven
days after his wedding he went to
complete his honeymoon amid the
rocks of the frozen Maritime Alps
with his frostbitten starving army
Maritime indeed I methinks 1
hear Josephine remarking with a
cynical look at her marriage cert
ttltcate and also at a bright new
silver butter dish given her by the
nobility of France What an at
tractive bride I must be with one
husband passed on Jo spirit life
and the other eating his frozen vic
tuals 5000 fct above timber line
From these lofty heights the
Littlo Corporal wearing a large
pair of ear muffs descended upon
a first second third and fourth
Austrian army only to drive them
before him into a corner and wipe
them out at his leisure Peace
followed the peace of Cam no
Formio and Lombardy and the
Netherlands were ceded to Greece
Space will not permit of detail
here regarding tho great battles of
Napoleon but wo may say that
with theso victories tho powers at
homo saw that ho was no longer
their servant but tho peoples idol
and that one day ho would hot
only wcild tho baton for Franco to
fiddle but that Europe and tho
civilized world must soon mark
down their securities when Napo

He proposed to conquer Egypt
and capture the pyramids He
had an idea that they would look
well in the front yard of Versailles
He lived in the saddle and sniffed
in every breeze the warm blood of
his foe
Such a life would bore me to
death but just see how different
Napoleon was He kept on fight
ing Christian or Moslem Jew or
Gentile until the thirsty yet blood
clotted jaws of insatiate war were
paralyzed and with yet hungry
and staring eyesand lolling tongue
the cruel beast that had peopled a
continent with widowsand orphans
sowed the valleythick with graves
and filled the snowy canyons of the
Alps with unknown dead paused
at the evening of a great disaster
and found itself deserted
Yet Napoleon was feared even
after he was dead and the English
nilerl tons unon tons of cranite
over his poor clay and bpuna these
giant blocks of stone together with
bands of iron so that many years
afterward the work of exhumation
was almost impossibjc
But why is it that with all the
glory that surrounds the name of
Napoleon every human heart
beats more in sympathy with his
wronged and wrong but discarded
wifeand human interest turns from
the history of Marengo and of Au
sterlitz to read the story of one
ambitious broken heart that beat
and bled for him
It is not the first case wherein a
devoted wife has kindled in her
husbands breast a fire of ambition
only at last to be consumed by it
and cast to the four winds of heav
en by his hand
Had Napoleon fought with the
Moslem summer and spent his
winters in Paris with his wife tho
war would have lasted longer and
his domestic history would read
smoother to day But alasl all
great men have their weak sides
Even Senator Hill loves to steal
away for an afternoon and just
gorge himself with baseball Even
tho president of tho United States
with able counselors all about him
and every good influence of home
and friends exerted in his behalf
will no doubt in spite of it all go
down to his grave spitting on his
bait with childlike confidence
Even you yoursclfsaid a friend
to mo the other day behind that
wido and winning smilo of yours
yet have no doubt your own weak
Yes1 indeed I exclaimed rogu
ishly 1 have and you have put
your finger right on it the first time
