Tho ret J issue was how tho Past mitht bo set np ajain iti Europe and tho Future prevente;!. ThLs prnfojnd business, so mediaeval and in ane, was utill on at tho end of February, lolo, when 'the startling news was borne to the Con gr.'ss that X::iInjii Bonaparte, quittiui; Elba, had landed at C.inn.'s. Tim intvlliceneo flushed north, south, cast and west. Tho cuwai-dly and pallid Past en throned in Paris smiltil a ghastly smile. The Court newspaper chnmitded tho landing at Cannes thus: "Tho information comes to us that th-it miserable adventnrer and brigand Bonaparte has left the island of Elba and again pollnt.'d the soil of France with his bloody feet." The next notice of news from tho south was (riven in the same organ thus: "Our intel ligence is that the mnn Bonaparte has set out from Cannes to Lyons, and that certain turhu lcnt ail venturers have joined him on the way . " On tho following day the same paper wild : "It is now certain that (rciieral Bonaparte r.t thu head of a grent nw.l enthusiastic forie is ap proaching the city, 03 tho Lyons road." On thnni'St morning tho paragraph read thus: "His Majesty tho Emi'ror Napolion enti red the oily last night, and slept at thoTuilcrii's!" This Journalistic transcript of events, !ib surd r.s it mrras, was in striking conformity to the facts. Oa the 1st of March the "man Bonaparte" rJfrl l:ind at Cannes, ftn tb.i way out from Eltia th- ship Zephyr, oa which he saili-:l, had I en necosti-d l.y tho banuut In constant, whoso i.ffi-1 r called out through his speakirig truniMt, saying.

At the landing, when au enthusiastic v-if.-cnt came tip in salutation, Xapohnn stiid to lkrtrand: "Hero is one re cruit already 1" Tho i-rs-. tael;- that -ns-.tcd has no parallel in history.

With a di vision of the urmy he met his old commander at Auxerre, forgot ail his hateful oaths of al legianco to the Buurbuns and rushed into the Ernis-ror's arms. For eighteen days the gathering tumult swelled nial broke into a tcmiicst of enthu ua.ni. On tho llrth ol jlalxh, Kapolin i nti-r-ed Paris, and tho li.-st oration was blown liko n thistlotlown ont of tho city. Louis Uiit to Belgium, and his Royalist followers returned to England.

From tho 1st of March to Waterloo was a pe riod of a hundred and ten days. History colls it the Hununil Days. Tho iron purpose of Na poleon, hts tireless energy, and omniscient perception, were never seen in such prodigious eruption end glaro os in this pi-riod of his futc. The allies had become lU-sperato. The whole world peKiived that tho Imperial re publicanism nt Frai.ce, imper.ior.ated in Bona-parts- and springing in the wind of his sword, must new triumph to the border of Europe or perish rai-rably under tho heels of banded kings. The two ideas which the parties of the past and the future rvpi-!-ntvd were irn-con-cilable: they could no liuiger coexist. Either must Xap)lfon unl his dynasty be stain;-! into tlie earth, or the old system of political society in Europe Usapicar forever. The French psle sprang to th call. In a few weeks UFT.UU) men, volunteers and con scripts, were thrown into the Held. It was the last call to arms, and France was drained from her mountains to the sea drained not only of men and borsc. bnt of that moral force and enthusiasm which constitute the wul of war. Napoleon di-clarvd that with a few additional wn-ks ia April and May of 18U ho would liava drawn around his Empire a rim of brass and fire that no human power :ould penetrate. Bat ho was obliged to take the field with in complete preparation. Too allied armiuaof England and Prussia, tinder Wellington and Bluoher, came on, the one from Flanders, and A.;TdO?ii 17 r, Sri fe Iftf! the other from tho feiina. It was tlie policy of Napoleon to prevent the union of his ecc micSL The ICth of June found him on the Bel gian frontier with 1:21, OCX) mn. n the next day he defected Eluchi r at Lisny. The attack of Ney on the English at Quatra Bros was un ucceixful. The impetuous marshal, whs was pow the Emperor's right arm, fell back on the Tillage of Waterloo. The place was about nine miles from Brussels. It was fdtirU-d by tho forest of triignes. There tho cllied command ers had r.cr.i d t fonu a junction. Napoleon ordered Marshal Grouchy with his division of W.UUU to follow cp Blnchnr on his n tr -at frtim Ligny to Waterloo. Tho plain purpose was that if Blncher should join Wellington, then Grouchy should unite his division with that of Ncy. The failure of Grouchy to do this to hang upon Bluchcr's rear was a fatal cir cumstance cf the final catastrophe. On the night of June 17th the British and French armies encamped only a short distance apart. A modern field-piece could easily throw a shell from La Belle Allianco over La Haio Sointe to Mont Ht. .lean and far beyond into tho forest. During the eft4 rnoon ef the 17th and tho greater part of tho night, there was a heavy rainfall anothi-r fact ia tho catastro phe. Oa the following morning the Emperor, viewing the situation from his heatluuartcrs at tho farm of La Bello Alliance, was unwill ing to precipitate the battle until his artillery might deploy over a dry lield. Hugo has made tho place nnd the scene im mortal in tho greatest battle-piece since Ho mer. The Held of Waterloo is an undulating plain. Strategically, it has the shape of an im mense harrow. Tho clevis is on the height called Mont fat. Jean. Behind that is the vil lage of Waterloo. The right leg of the harrow terminates at the hamlet of La Belle Alliance. The li ft leg is the road from Brussels to Ni velles. Tho cross-bar Intersects the right leg at La Haio Saintc. The right leg is the high way from Brussels to Charleroi. The intersec tion of the bar with the left leg is near the old stone chutean of Hongomont. Tho battle was fought on the line of the cross-bar and in the truukglo between it tad t!;n clevis. The conflict began just before noon. Tho armies engaged wero of equal strength, num bering about HO.OiJO men on cite h tide. Napoleon was superior in artillery ; but Wellington's sol diers had seen longer Ecrvicc in the lield. They wero his veterans from tin Peninsular War, perhaps the stubborncst lighters in Europe. Naprleon's first plan was to double hack the allied left 011 the center. This involved tho capture of La fiaic Sc.into, and as u strategic corollary tho taking of Uougoni'-nt. The lat ter placowas first ntt.-v-k.-d. The field and wood w ro carric-d ; but tho ehat.-aii was held In the 11. id-it of horrid carnage by the British. Early in tho nternoo:i a Prussian division, nnder Bulow, alsiut lo,uuu strong, cunio on tho lield, and NuiKleon hod to withdraw a divi sion from his center to repel the oncoming Ger mans. For two ir thr!o honrs, in the urea between La Haio Sainto and Hongomont, tho battle rag.il, the lines swaying with tinti-rtain fortune biicli ; and forth. La Haio bniiito was tnken and held by Ney. On l-.io whole, thu British lin.s recilcd. Wellington's attempt to retake La Haie Sainte ended ill a ri-pulso. Ney on tho oonntcr-cltargo eull.d on Naslcon for reinfor.i-ni.-nts, and the latt.-rat that moment, changing his plan of liattlc, delerniiiitil to make tb.i -.rinciii:il charge on tho British cen ter. Tho supisirt which he s-nt to Ncy was rot as heavy as it should have lioen, but the Marshal eoneliid.il that the crisis was at hand, nnd Naixilcon sought to support hiln with Milhatul s uin-ssiers and a division of the Middle Gn-ord. Uik'.-t this counter-eliargo tho British lin.-s rn-led and staggered, but still clung d(si-rat-. !y to their position. They gave a little, and then hung lust und could lsi iiiov.il 110 farther.

At half past f-mr ev. rytiiing s.-eni.il to jsirtend ui.iatcr to tho allies and victory to the French. Just at this Juncture, however, nn uproar was witnessed tar to the right. The woods sii-m.il to ftpen, nnd tho hauliers of Bluchcr shot up in tho horizon. Grouchy was fml on his rear or flank! NuTKiicon saw at a glance that it was then or never. His ran of Aust.-r-litz hung low in tho west. Tho British cent r must Is- broken, or the Empire which he b:ul builil.il with his genius must pass away like a Shantom. Ho called out four battalions of the liddlo and six of tho Old Guard. In the last fift.i-n years that Guard had been tiirown a hundred tim.-s on the cnoui. s of Fr-incc, and never yet repulsed. It deemed itself invinci ble. At seven o'clock, just as tho Juno sun was sinking to tho horizon, the bugles sounded, and tho finest body of horsemen in Europe start-.il to its doom on the stjuures of Welling ton. Tho grim hors.-m.-ii ro-lo to their fate liko bero-s. The charge rolled on liko nn ava lanche. It plunged into the sunken road of O'Hain. It s.i ined to roll over. It rose from the low grounds and broke on the British squares. They reeled under tho shock: then relorm.il and stood fast. Around and around th.isc immovable lin.-s the soldiers of the Em pire beat and beat in vain. It was the war of races at its climax. It was tho final death-grip of the t Saul nnd tho Teuton. The Old Guard r.-coil.il. Tho wild cry of I .a Ganlo nmllo was heard nlioro the r-K.r of Kittle. The crisis of the Modern Era broke in blood and smoke, and the rust was suddenly victorious. Tho Guard was broken into flying squadrons. Ruin camo with tho counter-charge of thu British. N.-y, glorious in his despair, sought to stay the tide. For an hour longer he was a spi-ta-clo to gods and men. Five horses had bti n killed under him. lie was i.n f.t. He was hath-ss. Heclut.-h.il the hilt of a broken sword. He was covered with dust and hl-asl. But his grim face was sot against the victorious ene my in the hopeless and heroic struggle to ral ly his shattered .ilt?mns. Meanwhile the Prussians rushed in from the right. Wellington's guards rose and charg.iL Havoc came down with the darkness. A sin gle regiment of tho Old Guard was form.il by Kapol.i.n into a last sqnnro nniund which to rally the fugitives. The Emji ror stood in tho midst and d.i-lared his purpose, to die with them. Jflarshal Soult forced him ont or tho m.-l.-e, and the famous square, eommand.il by Cambronne flinging his profane objurgation into th- t.i tli of the English perished with the wild cry of Vivo rEnii r-url On that spot French patriotism has planted n bronze lion to commemorate forever the ex tinction, not of the Old Guard onlv, but of tho Empire and of Nnpohiin the Great. There tho traveler irom strange lands pauses, at tho distance of eighty years from the horrible cataclysm, and reflect with wonder how within the m.-mory of living men human na ture could have bai-n rai-c.1 by the ).as-i.m of Kittle to such snlilimo heroism rs that dis play.il in thi-se wheat rtchls and orchards where the Old Guard of Fr.'.nco sjuik into oblivion, bnt rose to immortal f.imc.

Napoleon was not onlyexihd: he was im-pris-m.il. St. Helena was his prison. Ho was gnard.il. His masters watched him with cruel surveillance fur nearly six y.nrs. Xn.U-r their sl.i-pless cy.-s he di.-taten his "Memoirs" to Bert rami, ounversed -ith his fri.-nds, or sought on hour in solitude on the rocks near Long wood, looking out to the sea.- His health at length gave way.

How Ha Showed Bis Dislike For a Dorse naa Whs Bode at a Trot Finally His Spirit Was Conquered by a Mild Has cred Soldier With a Winchester. Now and then a "bad man" tries to cultivate something which he mistakes for humor. One of these devotees of lev ity used to hannt the cattle range of western Kansas, and every fall and spring he appeared iu Dodgo City at the general "roundup. " Every time he came to town lio loft some proof of a facetious mind, and was very sure of be ing talked about by every idle man and most of the busy ones who remained when tho rush was over. His namo was Eck Turner, thongh Dodge City will best remember him by the title "Doublo-L Eck. " the duplicated capital being Leonard & Loughrain's brand, and he being one of their best riders. In fact. Turner might have been foreman if he had cared for the position, for ho could rido well, and there were few moro expert with the rope and prob ably noue who could bear fatigue and hardship more patiently than he. Bnt tho trouble was ho wanted recom pense for tho dull life of a cowboy. He didn't euro for money. Any wages going were acceptable to him. But when the cattle got rounded up and t hero was half a day's escaiw from the tedium of labor Eck Turner wanted his fling. And he al ways went into town and had it New, a foreman cannot do these things. Ho must stay by the herd all the time, prerervo a clear hnad and firm place in tho saddle. Ho is the represent ative of tho owners tho custodian of much wealth and dissipation is not to be thought of. One of Ec-k Turner's pet bits of hu mor was to pick ont people whoso ap pearance displeased him and shoot just near enough to tliem to express his sen timents. Ho particularly disliked to seo horsemen go by on the trot.- It was in a sowboy country, and cowboys galloped, whether or not they were in a hurry. And if the rider had a habit of "ris ing" in the stirrups, as conventional trotters often do, Eek Turner hated him violently. So that when he camo down Main street one day and saw a rather well dressed man go by trotting and "rising" with tho motion of his horse Eck called general attention to the spec tacle. Really tho trotter was not a very good horseman. It was possible, as Eck ob served, to "see daylight under him" ev ery time ho rose in tho saddle. And tho glimiisea of that recurring "daylight" provoked Eck to a bit of pistol practice. "I bet," said he, watching tho rider and reaching for a large revolver, pretty well back on his belt, "I bet I can shoot between him and the saddlo and never touch a feather, " Ho had been drinking in so decorous a manner as to bo dangerous, and so uo one interfered. Tho rider was half a block away when Eck fired, and the bullet must have gone true, for the rider passed on unconscious, while a sign di agonally across tho Btreet was shattered by tho shot He tried it again later in the day and fortunately miraculously escaped tho infliction of injury. Dodge City talked about "Double-L Eck" and his new joke all summer, and iu the autumn he came in and tried it again. The first shot ho mado ho hit a man in tho leg and was very indignant be cause they would not give him another chance, assuring tho crippled victim it -was an accident, and urging him to mount and trot past justouo timo more, rising no higher than he had done, and guaranteeing to put three shots out of five between him and the saddle or buy tho drinks for tho crowd. But it was tho uncertainty about the other two shots that interfered with ne gotiations that and the trotting man's lK-rsistcut endeavor to enjoy tho freedom of his own pistol arm while Eck re mained in his presence. Eck thought it was funny, and that hallucination grew on him till he got into trouble. When the wave of "Texas fever" swept over Kansas in 1S80, kill ing off so many of tho Kansas cattle, a stato law stoptied those "drives" which had been tho life of western Kansas, and Eck Turner lost his occupation. He wont farther west and south and triod to shoot the top off a man's plug hat in Colorado Springs because ho insisted the fashion was two inches shorter than the man was wearing. t At La Veta he took exception to the sputtering sound occasionally made by an electric lamp and went about shoot ing the carbons in two till the city marshal engaged in repartee and shot off the cud of Eck's thumb, alleging as a sufficient reason the fact that no man with two good thumbs could be a real ly "bad man. " Eck replied in kind, and there were no applicants for the position the marshal's demise left vacant nntil it was known that Eck had left that region and gone to Arizona. At Fort Wingute he had tho misfor tune to. shoot into an ambulance driven by a very mild mannered private sol dier, who pulled up a Winchester and crippled Eck for life, destroying the use fulness of both shoulders and incidental ly putting out his right eye. After that Eck Turner went to Flag staff and developed a remarkable habit of winning at faro and taking care of his money. He confessed to a record of five men slain, but he was given credit for twice as many on account of his well known modesty, and when lie final ly opened a boarding house for seamen in San Francisco he permitted all the turbulent habits of his cowboy life to drift away to forgetfulness.
