Dan Berry, the well kuown horse owner of this city, has made a greac hit in purchasing an ordinary looking nag in the southern part of the state. It appears that the owner v,-as glad to get rid of it and thought be was doing a smart thing in working it off on Dan, but the latter is going to turn the deal to his own account, for.- th e anim al is a -won der. •' It is nothing more or less than a climbing horse. It was foaled in the woods of an unsettled part of Brown uouuty, am! for six months afterward ic never saw a human being. During tbat period it learned to climb 'trees with the agility of a squirrel, and when i'; was first discovered it lay sleeping in the branches of a large oak. The hon;e was taken home and broken to drive, and now iu every other respect it is a well behaved animal except when it takes a notion to climb a tree, and uo matter whether bitched up or uot tip the tree it goes, buggy aud all, A few days after coming here the horse was hired by John Peterson and John Heeler for a drive into the country. Tbe drivers were passing through a large woods when the horse suddenly took a notion to climb a tree, and up it went with the buggy and men. The latter fell out, but the horse went on up into the tree, carrying the buggy with it. For three hours the boys tried to coax it down, but it staid up until its desire was satisfied. The buggy was badly broken, and the boys came back with the horse, but .left t'ae fragments of the vehicle behind them. Mr. Berry will sell the borso to u circus.—Chicago Chronicle.

At last Mr. Barrymore grew weary of the questioning and beg;an to explain. "I'll tell why," liaid he. ""When I first began to travel, years ago, the wheel of a car on a train passing us flew off and killed a man in lower No. 5. The chap over him never got a scratch.

Story of the "Old Guard" and J to Strange Composition—Made Up of Old Peasants, the Pick of the Grand Annies of France. rcopyrip-ht, :S3S. by American PrffjF Asso- elation. Book rights reserved.] APOLEON'S long and terrific wars brought into existence that magnificent body of soldiers known as the Old Guard of France. All great armies since Waterloo have contained .._ c fighting corps which strove to emulate j 'phis was the prowo6S~of those far famed reserves. The history of the Old Guard, nowhere definitely given, is something like this: Waen Geiaeral Bonaparte took the field with the civic title of first consul, tbe body of soldiers answering to the house- bold guards of all royal and imperial armies when led by their cionurch-took the name of Consular Guard. Following £ie old custom when he became emper- oif a still larger contingent gathered around him and was known as the Imperial Guard. The Old Guard was always part of the Imperial Guard of France, but when it acquired its special name it was for reasons that distinguish- edit as the elite corps of France. Napoleon's wars were so destructive of French soldiers that the Imperial Gfuard had to be recruited, and tbe old battalions, jealous of the bard won laurels, did not wish to share them with novices fresh from the plow; hence a new corps called the Young Guard, 'and in time a second Young Guard, the first taking tbe name of Middle Guard. One of Napoleon's veterans described the Old Guard' in language which, though flowery, as becomes th'e theme, coincides with all that has been handed clown regarding this unique corps. 'He said: "The soldiers of the Old Guard were nearly all old peasants, born before the republic, men 5 feet 6 inches in height, tbin and well built, who had held the plow for convent and chateau. Afterward they were levied with" r1 all tbe rest of tbe people and went to Germany, Holland, Italy, Egypt, Poland, Spain and Russia under Kleber/Hoche and Marceau first and under Napoleon afterward. He, took special care of them and paid them liberally. They regarded •themselves as the proprietors of an immense farm which they must defend and enlarge more and more. This gained them consideration. They were defending their own property. They no onger knew.parents, relatives and com- satriots. They only knew tbe emperor. le was their god. And lastly they adopted the king of Rome, who was to inherit all with them and to support and honor them in their old age. "Nothing, like them was ever seen. They were so accustomed to march, to dress their lines, to load aud fire and cross bayonets that it was done mechanically in a measure whenever there was necessity. 'When' they' advanced 'carry-, ing arms, with their great .caps, their white waistcoats and gaiters, they all looked just alike. You could plainly see that it was the right arm of the emperor which was'coming. When it was said ia the ranks, 'The guard is going to move,' it was as if they had said, 'The battle is gained.'" Tbe name of Marshal Bessieres is linked in glory with that of the Old Guard. Bessieres 'was the companion of Murat, the country hostler, when-he-set out for Paris in search of adventure in 1790. Both enlisted in the Constitutional Guard, formed to defend the household o:i Louis XVI. Faithful to the king until the end, Bessieres entered tbe republican array as.captain and in Italy won the heart of Napoleon by gallantry in battle. He was given command of a picked body of the Consular Guard, which always attended Napoleon in person, andi in time rose to the head of the Imperial Guard.. At Wagram Bessieres had his horse killed under him and was thrown with such violence that be lay on the' field as one dead. Afterward Napoleon said to him: "Ti:e ball which struck you down drew tears from all my guard. Return thanks for it. It ought to be dear to you." Bessieres led the gnard in all its fiercest battles and was second to none but Murat in the brilliancy of charges in mounted battalions. The night before the battle of Borodino Napoleon sent for Bessieres and ordered him to distribute from the private imperial stores three days' rations of biscuit and rice, to the members of the guard.' The historian of Napoleon _and his marshals, Headley, says that during the retreat from Moscow Bessieres, "with the faithful guard, that no disaster could shake and no losses dishearten, hovered like a protecting spirit around Napoleon. Though their thousands had dwindled to hundreds, and toils that seemed endless wasted them ac every step, and famine and cold aad a victorious enemy thinned their ranks daily, and tie most appalling sights that ever met tbe human eye were before them constantly—dismay and despair on every side—they, "with their worn yet firm hearted leader, faithful to their trust, still maintained order and courage. Singing gaylypast the batteries that tore their ranks asunder, standing in squares around their emperor ps he biveoiacked in the snow, and furbishing him the last fragrant of fuel tbat could be gathered, while they one after • another dropped dead in their footsiteps, they faster, themselves on our affections and stand to the remotest time as a inoclel of fidelity -and firmness." The next year, 1S13, Bessieres was shot dead while gallantly reconnoitering the position of the advance guard of the allied army on the eve of the battle of Lntzea. Different commanders thereafter led the Old Guard. In the immortal charge at Waterloo the lemnani that illy around the adVOBturw from Elba was led in the crisis of the battle by Marshal Ney, tbe "bravest of The French veteran quoted above tells the story of the Old Gnard in their last cast for the throne of tbe emperor. He says: "From all sides, over the thunder of the cannon, over all the tumult, the cry was heard, 'The guard is comiuc;!' Yes, the guard was coming at last. We could see them in the distance, with their high bearskin caps, advancing in good order. "Those who have never witnessed the arrival of the guard on the battlefield ian never know the confidence which is inspired by a body of tried soldiers, the kind of respect paid to courage. And now after terrible massacre, after the repulse of furious attacks, on seeing the Prussians fall back on onr flank we said, 'This is the decisive blow.' And we thought, 'If it fails, all is lost.' : j-uis was why wo all looked at the guard as they marched steadily up. "It was Key who commanded them. Tbe emperor knew that nobody could lead them like Key; only he should have ordered them up an hour sooner. Then we should have gained all. But the emperor looked upon them as his own flesh and blood. If he had had them at Paris five days later, Lafayette and the refit would not have remained long in the chamber to depose him. This was why he waited so long before sending them in. He hoped that Ney would succceed in overwhelming the enemy with the cavalry, or tbat Grou chy would turn, attracted by the sound of the cannon, and then he could send him in place of bis guard to break Wellington's front; because he could always replace 30,000 or 40,000 com mon soldiers by conscription, but to have another such guard he must commence at 25 and gain 50 victories, and what remained of tbe best, most solid and the toughest would be the guard.

Iu ::0'minutes every officer was dismounted and the guard halted before such a terrible fire of musketry that even we, ;>00pac"esiiirear, could not hear the sounds of our own gims. "At last the whole army in front, oa tbe right, on the left, with the cavalry on the flanks, fell upon us. The four battalions of the guard, reduced to 1,200 men, could not withstand the charge. They fell back slowly", and we fell back also, defending ourselves with musket and bayonet. When we reached tie edge of the plateau, all the plain below was enveloped in darkness and the confusion of defeat. The disbanded troops were flying, some on foot and some on horseback. A single battalion of tbe gnard in a square near a farmhouse and three other battalions farther on, with' one square at the junction of the route at Planche- nois, stood as motionless as^sine firm structure in the midst of an inundation which sweeps away everything else." In the line of one of the squares stood Ney, firmly holding'on while the British" cannon plowed through his ranks. Overrun at last, the squares broke, and then it was that the brave Michel, when summoned to surrender, gave voice to the renowned motto, "The Old Guard dies, but never surrenders," and fell fighting for tbe honor of those elite warriors of France. GEORGE L. A STYLISH HAT. dies, lawns, ginghams and other summer goods are characterized by their elaborate and somewhat gorgeous designs in way of flowers, checks and stripes. Among the so called new materials are sh:aded ejects in moires and other dress fabrics. Grenadines show new weaves, which must be seen to be appreciated. Foulards exhibit patterns large and small which cover the background. Novel ideas are expressed in trimmings, some of which are in lat- tfce effects. Made trp pieces for bodices are a special feature in trimmings and promise to be exceedingly popular, furnishing as they do an easy though costly way for making an elaborate gown. •" Following the rumor that the chignon is - to come back in modified form are hair nets in a variety of styles. Frenchwomen are already wearing these nets, and there are reasons for believing that they will be worn here. At the present moment for evening headdress the ornaments ' are placed rather high, tbe hair waved and curled outhe top of the head and bows of ribbon or tortoise shell combs and diamonds or other handsome ornaments are used. Then there are light aigrets with diamond dust or a plain white aigret rising from a handsome jewel. In the way of hats there is-great variety, but all are moderate in size and often ornamented with twists or rolls of gauze, satin or velvet, giving rather the appearance of turbans. Tbe capote has given place to the toque of crumpled' velvet, enhanced with • flowers, and in the evening at theaters-little crownless bonnets of gold aud beads and violets are seen ; also the little watteau form in gathered tulle with wreaths and floral garniture. Among French importations is a stylish hat giving the broad effect so popular. It is of 'black felt bound 'with velvet. Draperies of satiu encircle the crown in soft waves and loops and apparently tie in front into two upright earlike ends faced with turquoise blue, it receives additional enrichment from .'a jeweled buckle and white feathers. " An attempt is being made abroad to introduce fancy dress elements into 'bridesmaids' dresses. - In lieu of bouquets' some of them have been carrying minute parasols, all flowers, or else a shoe filled with blooms or a floral muff. Long, transparent sleeves are almost universal for dressy gowns. The mode or introducing long, narrow panels on t!ae skirt is one which seemBtooerapid- v gaining in favor. The fashionable gowns Jhave very high collars as, indeed, iave all the outdoor jackets. Beautiful braiding is introduced on to tbe dresses, jut more particularly on to the outdoor jackets, which fit like a habit. Bayadere stripes will without doubt -be worn more than they have hitherto been.
