CO THE BONAPARTE FAMILY It Was Probably of Italian Orlcla and M as Iatrirlan. In the ne life of Napoleon by Pro fessor W. M. Sloau of Princeton in The Century the professor, after describing the efforts of the Corsicaus under the lead of one of the national heroes, Pas cal Paoli, to resist Genoese encroach ments and tyranny, says: Curiously longing in bis exile for a second Suni piero to Lave wielded the physical pow er whilo lie himself should have be come tho Lycorjrus, Paoli's wish was to be half way fulfilled in that a vrar lior greater than Sanipiero was about to be born in Corsica, one who should, by ii.o very union so long resisted, come, as the master of France, to wield a pow er strong enough to shatter both tyran nies and dynasties, thus clearing tho ground for a law giving closely related to Paoli's own just and wiso concep tions of legislation. This scion was to come from the stock which bore the uamo of Bonaparte, or, as the heraldic etymology later spelled it, Buonaparte. There were branches of the same stock, or at least of tho same name, in many other parts of Italy.; Whatever tbo origin of the Corsican Buonapartes, it was neither royal from tho twin brother of Louis XIV, thought to be the Iron Mask, nor imperial from the Julian gens, nor Greek, nor Saracen, nor, in short, anything which some lat er invented and lying genealogies de clared it to bo. But it was really Ital ian and probably patrician, for in 1780 a Tuscan gentleman of a side line de vised a scanty estate to his Corsican kinsman. The earliest homo of the fam ily was probably at Sarzana, in Tus cany, where for generations men of that name had exercised the profession of advocates. Moreover, they were persons of local consequence in their latest seats, partly because of their Italian connections, partly in their substantial possessions of land and partly through the official po sitions which they held in tho city of Ajaccio. Their sympathies as lowland ers and townspeople were with the coun try of their origin and with Genoa.' During tho last years of the sixteenth, century that republic authorized Jer ome, then head of the family, to prefix the distinguishing particle "di" to his name, but the Italian custom was averse to its use, which was not revived until later, and then only for a short time. Nearly two centuries fled beforo the grand duke of Tuscany issued formal patents attesting tho Buonaparte nobil ity. It was Joseph, the grandsiro of Na poleon, who received them. Soon aftor ward he announced that the coat of arms of tho f.;n:i?y was a count's coro net, or two chevrons and two mullets, with the two letters B P, signifying Bnona Parte, tho tincture gules, the charges azure, etc. Such heraldic cant shows that either' the sovereign or the receiver Was a poor herald. This v as in 1757. In 1759 the same sovereign granted further tho title of patrician. Charles, the sou of Joseph, received a similar grant from the arch bishop of Pisa in 17G9. These facts have a substantial historical value, since by reason of them the $unily was recogniz ed as noble in 1771 by the French au thorities, and as a consequenco the most illustrious scion of the stem became eight years later tho ward of France, which was still monarchical. Reading between the lines of such a narrative, it appears as if tho short lived family of Corsican lawyers had some difficulty in preserving an influence proportionate to their descent, aud therefore sought to draw all the strength they could from a bygone grandenr, easily forgotten by their noighbors in the moderate circum stances of tho later day. No task had lain nearer to PaoJi s heart than to unite in one nation the two factions into which ho found his people divided. Accordingly, when at his request Carlo de Buonaparte, tho single slender stem on which the con sequential lowland family depended for continuance, appeared at Corto, the stranger was received with flattering kindness and probably, as one account has it, was appointed to a post of cmol ument and honor as Paoli's private sec retary. The new patrician, according to a custom common among Corsiciaus of his class, had already studied at both Rome and Pisa, and in 1769 he was made doctor of laws by the latter uni versity. There are many pleasant anec dotes told to illustrate the good fellow ship of the young advocate among his comrades while a student on the main land. There are likewise mythical nar ratives of his persuasive eloquence at homo and of his influence as a patriot. In short, an organized effort of syco- phantio admirers, who would, if possi ble, illuminate the whole family in or der to heighten Napoleon's renown, has invented fables aud distorted facts so that the truth as to, Charles' character is almost unrecognizable. How Suffrage Is Restricted In Canada. The Canadian restrictions on suffrage are peculiar. In order to be entitled to vote, not only must one be a male Brit ish subject 2 1 years of ago and have lived in the Dominion at least a year, but ho must also have been the owner of real estate or the occupier of a rented house or business property for the same time. If he owns real estate in a city, it must be worth f 300, if in a town $200, and if elsewhere $150. If he nei ther owns real estate nor occupies real tstate as a tenant, he can voto if ho earns $300 a year, or if he be tho son of a farmer or renl estate owner and live at his father's home. An income voter is not required, as all other voters are, to live a year in the district where he wants to vote, but can register at any time. Albany Times-Union. Church as a Substitute. "On one occasion," said Mr. Corney Grain, "when we were acting at Wee-ton-super-Mare, an old lady came up to one of the ladies of our company ant) laid: 'Could you tell me, miss, if there aro any 2 shilling seats left? Cos if there aren't I'll go to church.' " -ion News. Stranse Funeral Custom. Some singular customs in relation to funerals not generally known among English people prevail in other lands and many of thosowith which travelers have made ns familiar appear neverthe less somewhat strango to us. A recent resident in Valparaiso states that tho Chileans ako n funny side even to a funeral. The more degraded class look upon tho death of a relative cs an excuse for wild orgies, and the bo:ly, especially if it bo that of a child, is kept in tho house for festive purposes for many days after death and some times even lent to friends who are not so fortunate to possess a corpso of one of their own relatives. On tho continent wo had a great va riety in funeral ceremonies aud observ ances. In Paris more outward manifes tations of respect aro paid to tho dead than in any other city. When a funeral passes through the street, it is tho cus tom for all men to take off their hats and bow their heads until the cortege has parsed, women expressing their sor row by the conventional courtesy. As a contrast to this a funeral at St Petersburg is considered quite a jolly affair, outward expressions of sorrow, etc., being delegated to professional mourners, who abound in the city. The employment of these mourners is gen eral tho richer the deceased tho bigger tho funeral and many of tho inhabi tants gain a good living by simply mourning for other people. They are expected to fill the church with hideous moans and yells, and at the grave they must and do scream and yell as though suffering tho wildest paroxysm of grief. If their employer is satisfied that these duties have been carried out in an efficient and satisfactory manner, tho mourners in addition to their re muneration, which varies from 1 to 5 silver roubles are entertained at a banquet after tho funeral is over. It is in Italy, however, where many of tho funeral customs have remained unchanged from the middle ages to the present time, that tho poetry of burial is brought out more fully than in any part of the world. Many of the cus toms, besides being picturesque and beautiful, aro extremely touching. Even so far back as the days of the Roman republic tho mourning and sacrifices wero continued for nine days, and, by tho women, mourning habiliments wero worn for a year after tho death of a near relative. The funeral procession was an observanco in which all connected with the deceased took part. This procession always took place at night and was headed by men, who sang tho funeral song. Then the corpse, in the mouth of which a coin was plr.eed to pay his ferriage rcross tho Llyi, was enirib.l on a couch, generally by freedmcn. Tho family follovred, the men with heads uncovered, tho women with disheveled hair, beating their breasts and uttering piercing cries. Finally the corpse was placed on a funeral pyre, which the nearest relative kindled, and whilo it was being consume:! perfumes, oil, food and clothing were thrown on tho pyre. Among many other old customs which have unrvived till today is the Miscricordia confraternity at Florence for the care of people injured by acci dent and their burial in the caso of death. Tho members of tho society are never seen in public without wearing a masking hood and habit, and whilo per forming their duties tbey defy individ ual identification. In Venice much pomp is displayed, especially if the deceased was a noble or high dignitary of state. Tho gondola, highly decorated, becomes a perfect blaze of lights and torches as it passes through tho city to the necropolis. In tho caso of a young woman thfl cere mony of conveying tho body to the grave is full of poetry and grace. Re clining on a raised couch, covered with flowers, the dead girl, "floating w her funeral bier, " like Elaine, the maid of Astolat, is conveyed to an island, and after tho preliminary service thee re quiem begins, and loving hands place the body in its last resting place. Cas- sell's Magazine. Chemistry la India. The following answers wero collected from a written examination in chemis try recently held in an Indian univer sity. Sulphur is a snicllful gas. Nitrogen is a remarkably lazy gas and is good for nothing. Carbon always exists in a dark room. There is no living being in the world that does not contain carbon. Gas is made by filling a poker with coal ond heating it. Chlorino gives; botheration to tho throat. Hydrogen is a colorless, invincible gas and burns it self without anybody's help. Nitric acid is used in the preparation of cur rent electricity. It is very bad for teach ers to pour it on our hands. Soda is formed by heating castor oil and potash. Caustic soda is used in the manufacture of soda water, and this is used in medicine for purgative purposes. Caustic soda is used as a summer drink. Quicklime is made by pouring water on Blacked lime.

About luncheon time my father fent Os down to the pastry cook 's shop, win re we reveled i.n:oi:g cream tarts aud rx tits fours, and thi n we ordered our dinntr, us people did then, from a trattoria near at hand. Then we went out again, still in ocr raptures, and when dinner time came, just about sunset, excite ment had given ns good appetites, not withstanding tho tarts. We wero ready, but dinner delayed. We waited more and more impatiently as the evening advanced, but still no dinner appeared. Then tho English Bervaut, Charles, was called and dis patched to tho cook's shop to mako in quiry. He came back much agitated, 6aying the dinner had been sent; that they assured him it had been sent. It had apparently vai:bl.td en its way up the old pah-.ee stairs. "Go back," said my father, "and tell them thero is some mistake, and that w aro very hungry mid waiting still." The man left the room, then returned again with a doubtful look. "There was a sort of a box canio on hour ago," lo said. "I have not opened it, sir." With a ru. h my sister and I flew into tho hall, and there, sure enough, stood a square, solid iron box with a hinged top. It certainly looked very unlike dinner, but we raised it with some faint i hopes, which wero not disappointed. , Inside and smoking still upon the hot plates was spread a meal like something; in a fairy tale roast birds and dressed meat, a loaf of brown bread and com potes of fruit and a salad and a bottle, of wine, to which good faro we immo- diately sat down in cheerful excitement, i our first Roman family meal togeth er.
