Never holes?, they are supported At the mbllo expense, like BO many destitute jersons, while there is . a constant howl about pensions paid to keep Joion soldiers out of the poor houses. Prof. William M. Sloanc gives an interesting analysis of the youthful nature of Napoleon in Century. The period under consideration is that immediately following 1 Xapoleon'a flight from Corsica, when he had renounced his firm allegiance to Paoli in the belief that it would improve his own chance for preferment. I'rof. Sloane say.s: Not that the outcast fluouaparte was any longer exclusively a Corsican. It is impossible to conceive of a lot raoro pitiful or a fato more obdurate than his had so far been. There \vas little hereditary morality in his nature, and none had been inculcated by training; he had no vital piety, nor even sincere superstition. A butt and an outcast ota French school under the old regime., he had imbibed a bitter hatred for the hind indelibly associated with such haughty privileges for the rich and such contemptuous disdain for the poor. lie had not oven the consolation of having received an education. His nature revolted at the religious formalism of priestcraft; his mind turned in disgust from the scholastic husks of its superficial knowledge. What ho had learned came from inborn capacity, from desultory reading, and from the untutored imaginings of his garden at Brienne, his cave at Ajaccio, or his barrack chambers. What more plausible thau that he should first turn to the land of his birth with some hope of happiness, usefulness, or even glory! What more mortifying than the stupefying revelation that iu manhood he was too French for Corsica, oi> he has been in boyhood too Corsican for France! The story of his reception ancl adventures in Corsica has 110 fascination; it is neither heroic nor Satanic, but belongs to the dull and mediocre realism which makes up so much of commonplace life. It is difficult to find even a thread of continuity in it; there may be one as to purpose; there is none as to either conduct or theory. There is the passionate admiration of a southern nature for a- hero as represented by the ideal Paoli. There is the equally southern quality of quick but transient hatred. The love of dramatic effect is shown at every turn, in the perfcrvid style of his writings, in the mock dignity of an-edict issued from tho grotto at Milelli, in the empty honors of a lieutenant colonel without a real command, in the paltry style of an artillery inspector witli no artillery but a few dismantled guns. j But the most prominent characteristic of tho young man was his shiftiness, in both the good and U:id senses of tho word, lie would perish with mortification rather than fail in devising some expedient to meet every emergency: lie felt no hesitation in changing his point of view c:s experience destroyed an idea or an unforsocn chance wus to be seized and improved. I lie was no spendthrift, "but he had scruples about money, Uc was proud r in the hendshipof his family, and reckless as to how he should support them, or .should secure their promotion. Solitary in his boyhood, he had become in youth a companion and lender; hut his true friendships were not with hi.s social equals, whom he despised, but with the lowly, whom he understood. 'Finally, he was a citizen of the world, a man without a country, his birthright was gone, for Corsica repelled him: France he hated, for she had never adopted him. lie was likewise without a profession, for he had neglected 'that of a soldier, and had failed both as an author and as a politician. He 'ivas npparently,rtoo. without a single guiding principle; the world had been a harsh stepmother, at whose knee he had neither, learned the truth nor experienced kindness, lie appears consistent in nothing but making the best of events as they oc- :cur:-cd. So far he was a man neither much better nor much worse .than the world in which he was born. He was quite as unscrupulous as those about him, but he was far greater than they in perspicacity, adroitness, adaptability and persistence. During the period before his expulsion from Corsica these qualities of leadership were .scarcely recognizable, but they' existed. As yet, to all outward appearance, the little captain of artillery was the same slim, ill-proportioned nod rather insignificant youth; but at twenty-four he had had the experience of a much greater ;igc. Unconscious of his powers, he liad dreamed many dny-drcaros. and hud acquired a habit of boast,rjl conversation in the family circle, but fully cognizant o_f tbe dangers incident to his place, aud the unsettled conditions^about him, he was cautiox;s and reserved in tho out-side world. LEARNED FRENCH DOGS. Extraordinary ItcnHontng 1'o-wers of M Noble Atilmitl Taught co Run LlrrAmls. My hero is not a mutilated ram nor a "spy," in the technical terms of the police, but a large, robust, magnificent dog,-whose beautiful white and curly fleece, like that of a sheep, was the cause of his being named Jlouton (sheep.) His eye is mild and intelligent, and at times, when he is in good humor, one would say lhat he laughs, so animated his eye becomes and his jaws wriggle so droll}-. Mouton belongs to Duke J , who resides in Charohus. When J say that he belongs to the duke I'm mistaken, for he is the property- of the adopted son, the friend and the porter of John, his keeper. John has brought him up earofully;he has taught him to perform tricks,' but he has specially trained him to do his errands. The village from which the supplies arc obtained is nearly two miles distant from the homestead, and when John has not time to go there he writes an crdcr of what he needs on a piece of paper, puts the paper iu a basket, and the handle of the basket in the dog's mouth, then pointing in the .direction of the village, he says to him: "Run quick to Coulomier's." Cou- lODiier is the grocer who has John's patronage. Mouton trots oft, and trots along without stopping, even though he meet a well-beloved female friend. Arriving at the village he deposits his basket in Coulomier's store. If by chance there is no one in the store he barks two or three times to call attention. When he sees the paper in the grocer's hands he goes out to reconnoiter; he drinks at the fountain, holding a smelling conversation with the dogs stretched out in the sun, like lizards, but he calculates his time so well that his loafing- ue^er exceeds a quarter of an hour, when he returns to the grocer. Coulo- mier has placed what is ordered in the basket, gives it to Mouton, who seizes it with his strong jaws and runs off with it homeward bound. liutone day the basket contained live eela, wrapped in a uapkin. The route was along near a canal, and follows it for a long distance. Mouton, with the basket in his mouth, was trotting along, when suddenly the child of the lock• keeper, a baby two years old, fell into the canal.. The dog hears the cries of , the infant and the sound of splashing in the water; he seta down his basket, leaps into the canal, seizes the baby by- its clothing and brings it to terra flrma. The child does not move, and Mouton, who had laid it on tho gro-and, takes it up again by its garments, and bears it to the lock-keeper's house. The mother was seated in the kitchen paring potatoes. Mouton enters at one bound and places the child upon her Inp, and then hurries off to get his basket, liut I he finds that those rascally eels, perceiving that they were near the water, have wriggled and struggled in such a way that they have succeeded in escaping- from their cloth prison. They were squirming in the uust. and aiming 1 for the canal. Mouton, instead of seizing- them by the tail or the middle of the body, grasped them "by their heads and wrung their necks. After having thus laid them all out he piaeeil their bodies in the basket again and took them to his master. To go ami carry that basket to the place whore he had been taught to put it might, if necessary, be attributed to instinct merely, but nobody hud taught him to save a child from drowning, and then, Seeing tho child inanimate, to take it up again and carry it to its mother, shows not only intelligence but goodness of heart. Many a man, less intelligent thnn Mouton, would not have reasoned so well as this: "Tn order to take to my master what has beeu intrusted to my care 1 must kill these eels, for living I cannot get them back into the napkin, as while 1 am picking up one the others will get :iway.'' And notice that the seven cols were killed in the same way. This brave dog is, according to my idea, more intelligent and has more 'mi.ml than :L good number of fresh young men of my acquaintance, who "little suspect that they are far from being of as much value as the good Mouton. The scene of saving the child and that of recapturing the eels was witnessed by two peasants who were on the other side of the canal. This stovy. oneyearold, is absolutely true.—Paris .Revue Spirite.

HARRY FRANK, TO BB SURE,. LO9ANSPORT. DELPHI. FLORA. NEW YORK, EXCAVATING WITH WATER. Re Hnce Ma»«c» of Earth Now Easily mov*<1 by Aqu^oun R*ttcriD|r Jtftunif. Within the past ton or twelve years the uses of hydraulic "monitors"' and "little pinnls, " of California mining fame, us means of earth excavation have become pretty well appreciated among' engineers, says Cassier's Mag-.ix.inc, and water jets have been successfully applied to a variety of engineering purposes, for which only a short time previously they would never have bean thought of. Pile driving 1 with water jets, now so common, is only one modification of the general method, while the removal of heavy earth banks by these aqueous battering rams w another which is deservedly working- its way into favor. What has led to these reflections is a revised version, recently published, of an account of the removal several years ago of some river bluffs overhanging 1 the tracks of one of the railroad lines in the western part of the United SUitcs. This was accomplished almost wholly by -the employment of jets of water 'under high pressure, bringing- the cost of excavation down to the low figure of one and one-half cents per cubic yard. It recalls also a neat joi> curried out a few years ago in the way of tilling in ;i large area of land just under water and bringing it up to a level of several iVct a.bovc the water line. Large sand hills ranged along the shore close by these hollows. The worl; got into the hands of two old California miners, who applied a modified hydraulic mining onllJt to its execution. They bought a couple of large pumps, which delivered water from the hay on the tops of the sane! hi'.ls through an iron pipe, a:id then, by means of a. series of boxes and .sluices, they carried the dirt and sand which the water washed down from the hills Out to the spot to be Oiled. In this way several acres of land were made at an expense which was merely nominal. The pumps and boiler were practically worth as much after the work was done as whm th^v wor" first purchased.

Bonaparte's natural associates were the younger men: Masseria, son of'a patriot lino, Posso di Uorgo, Peraldi, Cunco, Ramolini, and others less influential. The only Corsican, with French military training, he was, in view of. uncertainties and probabilities already on the horizon, a person of considerable consequence. liis contribution to the schemes of the young patriots, says Century, was insignificant; it consisted in a proposal to support the central committee which bis friends so ardently desired by a body of local militia. The plan was promptly adopted by the associates, the radicals seeing in it a means to put arms once more into the hands of the people, the others having no doubt in mind the storming of the 13astile and the possibility of similar movements in Ajaccio and elsewhere. Bonaparte, the only trained officer among them, may have dreamed of abandoning the French service, and of a supreme command in Corsica. ^ Mairy of the people who appeared well disposed toward France bad from time to time received permission from the au- j thoritics to carry arms; many- carried : them, secretly and without a license; but proportionately there were so few in both classes that vigorous or successful armed resistance was ia most places impracticable. The attitude of the department of war at Paris was regulated by Buttafuoco. aad was, of course, hostile to the insidious scheme ' of a local militia, Tlie minister of war •would do nothing but submit the suggestion to the body against whose influence it was aimed, the hated council of twelve nobles. The stupid sarcasm ol such a step wasAvell-nigh criminal. • Thn Clover Etcapf of Two City Girl* fronu m Fcroclou* Bull. Two city-bred young ladies, Maud and Molly, were spending their summer in a village where their chief "playground,"n.s they said, was a slope, of land behind the house, separated, by a board fence from a rough pasture. For this was a village by courtesy only;, the houses were "scattering." Ono afternoon the young ladies mounted their slope, spread out Cheir shawl and lay down at ease. Maud read aloud for a time, and then they succumbed to sleepiness and lay dosing, their hats over their eyes. The rest ol the story can best be told in Molly's own words. "I think I must have been sound- asleep," she said, "for I woke with u. very confused feeling that a hot wind was blowing over my fu.ce. I opened my eyes. A black figure close beside mo seemed to shut out a.ll tho sun. A huge, shaggy-horned head looked down upon me. It was that of John Thnr- low's bull, the terror of the town. Uo had escaped from the pasture into thin field. "I hadn't time to be frightened. I think what chiefly impressed me was his tremendous size, for as I lay (bent on my back he loomed above me like a small mountain. Ills head seemed enormous. As I opened my eyes ho gave, almost in my very face, a really terrible bellow, and I noted that tho forefoot nearest me had already pawed a considerable hole in the ground. "Now, I had always understood from stories that a bull's attention should be diverted from attack by throwing- something over his head. ] could not throw the shawl, for we were lying on it, but, perhaps as much to my surprise us his lordship's, I tore the wide leghorn hat from Maud's hands, for she had taken it oil at sound of the bellow—and with one dcsperato effort threw it on that huge bead and pulled it down over his eyes. "Almost with the same movement I seized Maud's hand, and we went tumbling down the slope. Vo\i may be sure we did not waste time vn looking behind us, but when we did reach tho kitchen steps, what do you think we saw? "A bull decidedly out of temper with, the world, plunging about on the slope and trying to rid himself of a wide leghorn hat through which one of hi* horns stuck firmly. A streamer of white mull hung-over his face, and waved like a banner with every plunge.
