HOW HISTORY IS DISTORTED Russian Text-Book Shows Curious Instance of Tampering With French History. . Reasons of, church.'state or other policy have frequently caused the Eicholars of one country to tamper with the bistory of another with which It has been intimately connected. A (iurious instance of such a distortion eft French history was that found in a Russian textbook, used in ail Russian I^ubllc schools, and edited by a great Russian scholar, Jlovaiskl. The following may be cited as an IllustraUon: "Louis XVI. was a good and peaceful king. After a lopgv and famous ifeign. In which he was most happy in his choice of minister of finance, he died quietly in Paris, beloved by all his people. His death was caused by a hemorrhage. "The'successor of Louis XAT. was bis son, Louis XVIL During his reign the brave royal army, commanded by General Napoleon Bonaparte, captured tbe larger part of the European contingent for the French crown. But the faithless Napoleon showed tendencies toward misusing his power, and was suspected of harboring dishonest schemes against tbe legitimate mier. With the help of his majesty the emperor and autocrat of ail the Russias, bis plans were frustrated, and he was deprived of all his possessions,, honors, and rights to a pension. He wds then exiled to the island of St. Helena, where he died."—^The Sunday Magazine.
