Queer Impression the Emperor Mad

be acknowledged our curiosity was not

the silence was broken by a swift ru

So many portraits exist of this aston
ishing man, bis history has been so
much written altout. all the stories told
by tbe children of his old soldiers will
live so long, that the generations to
come will know him almost us well as
ourselves. But what will be difficult
to grasp is bow deep and unexpected
the impression was which those felt
who saw him for the firstiaie.
As for me, I experienced a sort of
stupor, a mute surprise, like that
which seizes one at tbe aspect of a
prodigy. It seemed to me that he wore
un aureole. Tbe only thought I could
frame when 1 recovered from this first
shock was that such a being could not
possibly die: that such a mighty organ

should never perish. 1 Inwardly

From the Memoirs of tbe Countess Po
tocka. The Pulse Watch.
Among the iugenious devices for the
physician may be mentioned a watch
constructed on the "stop" principle
w hereby the number of pulse beats per
minute may be indicated. A push but
ton is pressed at the beginning of the
count and again at tbe twentieth pul
sation, when the cumber of beats per
minute is shown on a dial without tbe
necessity for calculation. Still another
push ou the button brings the counter
back to the starting point. In the ordi
miry method of taking the pulse the
observer is obliged lo do two things at
tbe same time count the beats and
keep his eye on the second hand of his
watch. With the pulse watch only one
operation is necessary, tbe counting of
tbe pulsation up to twenty, when the
push button is pressed. New York

That K. w. Keezel of Garnett, Kans..
who was fatally injured in a fire at
that place Friday night, came to his
fleath by internal injuries received
when a cement celling caved In, has
been learned by relatives in this cltv.
The injured man, who is a son-in-la"w
of Mrs. Martha Cozad of Reynolds,
lived only an hour after the accident.
Friday night about 8 o'clock a fire
broke out ia a furniture store at Gar
nett While the fire department was
fighting the flames it was discovered
that a large quantity of water was com
ing through the ceiling of a fire proof
room w hich enclosed the electric plant,
and a force of men was ordered to cov
er the machinery to prevent injury by
water. '
A large quantity of concrete had
been utilized in the fire proof construc
tion of this room, and the large vol
ume of water coming through the ceil
ing caused this material to crack. But
a few minutes had elapsed before the
entire ceiling caved in, crashing down
upon the workmen below, killing three
and seriously injuring one.
Funeral services over the hodv of
W . W. Keezel were held in the home
Sunday evening at G o'clock, after
which the remains were taken to Otta

Construction and repair work to be
done on the school buildings during the
summer months, came before the
; board of education for consideration at
a special meeting called for that pur
pose last evening, and various improve
! merits were discussed. A. (i. Hill re
, ported that most of the repairs ordered
by the board at the time of their an
I nual inspection of school buildings last
1 week, had been planned for or are al
; ready unde r way. Considerable atten
jtion was given to the interior paint
ling and improvement of the buildings.
;It was decided to replaster the eeiliiii?
of one f the upstairs rooms in the
Longfellow school, because of the poor
condition of the plaster there. A pro
posal from John T. Noftsker to install
pressed steel ceiliiiKs. similar tn hw

the case, it is the desire of the school
authorities that this over-ight be re

Victor Hugo's Responsa to th. Old
Blind Soldier'. Appeal.
A Frenchman, writing recently upon
"The Mendicants of Paris." recalls a
prett; anecdote of Victor Hugo and a
blind beggar. The beggar was an old
soldier, very feeble and quite sight
less, who was led every day by bis
little prnndd.-iughter to a certain street
corner, where he waited patiently for
such sennly anna as the hurrying pub
lic might drop into a small box that
hung from bis neck.
One day a group of gentlemen halted
near him. chatting, and lie beard the
name by whh-h they called the one
who lingered longest. Keiicliing for
ward as he, too, was about to go, be
caught him by the coat.
"What do you want, my good man?"
asked the gentleman. "I have already
given you 2 sous."
"Yes, monsieur, and I have thanked
you," replied the veteran. "It is some
thing else that I want."
"What is It?"
"You shall haTe them." said the gen
tleman, and he kept bis word. The
next day the blind soldier bore on his
breast a placard with a stanza to
which was appended the name of Vic
tor nil go. and the alms in the box
were quintupled. The lines may be
thus translated:
