BLOOMSBURG, PA., FBIDAY, OCTOBER 21,
Pull dow n tho hough, Bob 1 Isn't Mils fun ?
Now glvo It n shake, and there goes one I
Now put your thumb up to tho other nnd soo
If It Isn't as mellow as mellow ran be.
I know by the stripe
It nyiisl bo rlpol
That's one apleco for you and me,
Green, are theyt Well, no matter for that,
Sit down on the grass and we'll have a chat,
And I'll tell you what old Parson Bute
Said, last Sunday, of unripe fruit,
"Life," says he,
"I, n beautiful tree,
Heavily laden with beautiful fruit,
For the youth there's lovo.Just streakod with
And great Joys hanging Just over his hend;
Happiness, honor, and great estate,
For those who patiently work nnd wait;
Blessings," said he,
"Of every degree,
Ripening early and ripening late.
Take them In seasoo, pluck and cat.
And the fruit 1 wholeiome, tho frutt Is sweet:
Bui, Oh, my friend I" Hero ho gave a rap
On his desk, like u regular thuuder-clup,
And mako such a bang,
Old l'Cacon Lang
Woke up out or his Sunday nap,
"Green fruit." ho said, "God would not bless ;
But half life's sorrow and blttcrboss,
Half the evil, nnd ache nnd crime,
Came from tasting before their time,
Tho fruits Heaven sent."
Then on he went
To his fourthly aud fllthly wasn't It prime 7
But, I say, Bob, wo fellows don't euro
So much for a mouthful of applo or pear ;
Bat what we like Is tho fun of tho thing,
When tho Ircsh winds blow and the hangbirds
Home grubs nnd slug
To their young ones a-swlng
In their basket nest, Hid up by Its string.
I like npplcs In various ways;
They're Hrst-rnte roasted before the blaze
Of a winter's fire ; and, oh, my eyes.
Aren't they nice, though, mado Into pies I
I scarce over saw
One, cooked or raw,
That wasn't good for a boy of my size.
But shake jour fruit Irom the orchard tree,
To tho tune or the brook nnd tho hum of tho
And the chlpmonkd chirping every minute,
And the clear, sweet notcol tho gay llttlo linnet,
And the grass and ilowers,
Aud the long summer hours.
And the flavcr of suu uud broezs are lu It.
But this Is a hard ono I Why didn't we
Leave them another week on the tree?
Is yours ns bitter? Glvo us a bite.
Tho pulp Is tough, and the seeds nro white,
And the taste of It puckers
My mouth llko a sucker's !
I vow, I belle vo tho old parson was right I
On tho eonln of him, whom history
now known by tlio name wo have writ
ten above, t hero win tho following in
fi'ription : "To tho memory of Joseph
Fiancols Charles, Duko of Rclchsttiilt,
son of Nupiileon, Emperor of tho
French, anil of tho Archduchess Marin
Louisa of Austria; born at Paris, March
20th, 1SU, saluted in his cradlo by tho
titlo of King of Rome. In tho flower
of his youth, and endowed with uvery
fine quality of mintl and body, of an
imposing stature, noblo nml agreeable
features, elegant in his language, rc
markablo fur his military information
ami aptitude, ho was attacked with a
pthlsis and dli d in the Emperor's Castlo
at Schoenbrunn, near Vienna, tho 22nil
of July, 1832."
When the end was near at hand, and
ho was slowly approaching tho tomb,
this unfortunate Prince exclaimed, "So
young, alas! must I end a useless anil
ouscuro life '.' My birth and my death
they are my history." So was it de
creed, mid his young life terminated;
for him there hud been none of tho per
ilous power of empire or tho awful
glory of battle, but tho student of his
tory can find no more pathetic or more
eloquent chapter than the fuw pages re
cording his career.
Napoleon having united tho Imperial
tliadem of Franco to tho iron crown of
Italy, marched on to further anil more
glorious victories ; three memorable
campaigns saw him lay prostrate at his
feet all Germany, and thu capltols of
both Prussia and Austria witnessed his
triumphs and acknowledged their mas
ler. Conqueror at Ulm and Auslorlitz
at Jena and Frieillaml, at Eckmnlil
and Wiigram, he dictated tho treaties
of Tilsit Presburgand Vienna. Crushed
and humiliated, Austria nnd Prussia,
tho two leading nations of tho German
Confederation, tremblingly .saw their
territories mutilated, and themselves
forced into a degrading and terrible al
liance uith tho all conquering warrior.
Ho created and made himself protector
of tho Confederation of tho lthiuo ; ho
stripped Switzerland of her soldiers
und her resouices ; calling his brothers
kings ho sent them us his sub-consuls
to govern Spain, Westphalia, Naples
and Holland; imperial fiefs were estab
llsheduii all. sides; prlvatosnlilier.s were
mado dukes, and hereditary sovereign
dukes assumed kingly titles at tho mere
nnd of the victorious Frenchmoii. All
that the great emperor could desire of
power was granted to him, and Europe
conquered at last, lay bupinu under his
iron rule. But we must all die, an heir
was wanted to thlsinlghty iuhciitance.
For his wife tho conqueror demanded a
scion of the haughtiest huuso tho world
has over seen-; ho sought and obtained
a child of thu kaisers, udaughterof Ma
ria Theresa, of Charles tho V., of Fer
dinand and Isabella, On tho 1st of
April, 1810, he celebrated with unri
valed pomp and magnificence his nup
tials with Maria Louisa, tho daughter
of tho Emperor of Austria, and upon
tho occasion ho ordained tint tho
train of his imperial bride should ho
supported by no less than flvo reigning
Ono year after at 8 o'clock on tho
morning of March l!0th, 1811, a hundred
and ono guns tumultously proclaimed
to tho capital that a son und heir was
born to tho ruler of Europe. Tho Joy
of tho Emperor was unbounded, uud
the great soldier who amid tho wild tu
mult of it hundred victories over re
mained calm and imperturbed, now
loudly nnd publicly exulted. Couriers
wero Instantly despatched In ull direc
tions to proclaim tho Joyful ovent to
tho cities of tho einpiro ami thu courts'
nf Europe, while Napoleon hlm-silfj
hastened to exhibit his sou to tho i
princes of lils family, lo tho emba&w-
dors, to tho irmi-shals, generals, nnd all

Such wit9 thu birth of tho King of
Rome. Fouryenra later, In 1815, all
was changed ; Napoleon tho peer of Al
exander niiil Hannibal, of Ctosar, nnd
of Charlemagne, was pining out his
life, n prisoner on a lono island in mid
ocean ; Ills son tyas Duko do Reichstadt
and domesticated In tho family of his
maternal grandfather, tho Emperor of
Austria. Alas! for tho vanity of earth
Between tho Emperor and his llttlo
grandson a touching Intimacy was soon
formed; they wero inseparable, and ti
play-house, suitable to n child, was
erected in tho privntonpartments of tho
Emperor. Tlip child found his way,
and was mado welcome even In tho
Cabinet, whero tho monarch held nudi
enco Tor tho humblest ot his subjects,
carefully examining or listening to
their petitions. Hero Ihe young Duko
would sit for long hours at tho fett of
tho Sovereign, wlio found relief amid
his labors in tho cheerful talk or tho
bright and patient boy.
Ho was not nn extraordinary child,
but, living ns he did so constantly
among persons older than himself, ho
can hesaid to havo no childhood. When
ho grow older ho exhibited great in
quisitiveness regarding hlspnst life.and
his father's wonderful history. His
questions often embarrassed his govern
or and teacher, but on' nn appeal to tho
Emperor, ho commanded; "Truth is

tho Emperor to give him an exact and

served upon tho subject, and never ex
pressed any regret us to his former sit
uation. Ho was ten years of age when
the death of his father was communi
cated to him; he wept bitterly, and his
grief lasted several days.
Ho early In life comprehended his pe
culiar position, and fully nprecltuod his
high runk and diguity. Qii ono occa

Aubul Hassan, a man of great vivacity
and unbounded assurance. Ho ono day
met the Duke do Heichst'adt at tho stu
dio of tho painter Lawren :e, nnd hav
ing been presented to him, began at
once it conversation lu English with
Count Dletrlclistein, "tho Prluco's gov

behavior, tho young duke, then eight
years of age, gravely said: "That is n

seem to impose tho least restraint on

person and can iujjo, and was remarka
ble for hi.s skill in horsemanship ami
the uso of arms. His education was
general, but his whole soul was en
grossed in tleep, unwearied study of
military tactics. In IS 0 Marshal Mar
mont visited Vienna; tho Priuco de
sired to see him, and n meeting was ar
ranged at a hall given by tho English
Embassador. Curiosity was excited; all
wishid to witness tho meeting between
the son of Napoleon nnd one of the old
est and most distinguished of his Gen
erals. The Prince stood apart, and
Count Deitriehstein, approaching with
the old warrior, presented him. "Mar
shal," exclaimed tho Duke, "I cannot
tell you what plea-tiro it gives mo to
see one of tho most illustrious soldiers
who fought under my father's orders ;
you particularly-who wore his aid-decamp
in his tlrst campaigns, you wero
with him in Italy; you followed hlra
to Egypt aud Germany. I have studied
his history with deep attention, and
havo many questions to ask you con
cerning facts about which I wish to
bu enlightened." Tho Marshal was
much moved, and profe-sed to bo lit tho
orders of tho Prineo; but taking ad
vantage of a movement in tho room,
ho left tho Duko for an instant and
Joining tho Prince do Metternlch.asked
him what was to be done, saying that
before ho went on with the conversation
ho wished t 'i be sure that ho compiled
with the wishes of tho Emperor. "Mar.
slnil," said tho Prime Minister, "Tho
wishes of the Emperor are that tho
Duke di- Heiehstailt should know tho
truth, to conceal it from him would bo
impolitic, and I think oven criminal "
After this the Marshal gave the prince
daily lectures on th' military theory of
Napoleon's campaigns', which wero con
tinued wllh no intc rrupti.in for three
mouths. Together they followed each
step of that wonderful career, went, over
in detail tho plan of each battle, mark
ing hero and theroa po-slhlo error, but
feeling themselves thrilled through nnd
through by recognizing repeated and
brilliant strokes of genius. It Is easy
to understand tho ardor with which tho
old marshal threw himself Into this la
bor of love, and tho deep 'unflnirglng
Interest shown by tho conqueror's only
son; nor is It strange tho marshal said
that in the penetrating glances of tho
young duko ho discovered tho eyes nnd

hopes, and above all, what was tho ef
fect of his burning words on thu ardent
soul of his eager pupil'.'
The duko had very early In life com
menced his military Httulies, and his
zeal in their prosecution was so groat
that he was constantly cheeked, lest
prejudice bo douu to tho other branches
of his education. According to tho cus
tom of tho Austrian imperial family,
ho parsed through overy grade of tho
eervice, learning each soldierly detail
by personal experience. At length In
1831, hu was advanced to tho rank of
lieutenant coloncl,nnd takingcommand
of a batalllon of Hungarian Infantry
in garrison tit Vienna, ontcrod wllh
great ardor upon his nowdutles. Cour

won over tho whole troop to personal

those winning qualities that had bo
characterized tho great emperor, that i

all whocatno in contact with him, nnd
hnd even caused overy prlvato in tho
ranks to feel himself tho friend nnd

At this time exhibited no signs of
dlsense, though doubtless tho germs of
his fatal mnlady had nlrendy tnkon root.
Soon they began to dovclop, but ho
studiously concealed nil signs of distress
or sulTorlng, nnd peremptorily rejected
nil medical ml vice when his weakness
wns nt last discovered. His physician
says: "In tho spring or 1831 thol'rlnro
entered on his military career. From
that time ho rejected nil my ndvlco; I
was only tho spectator ofnn unmeasur
ed zeal nnd unlimited eagerness for his
now pursuits. From thnt tlmo ho
thought ho was only to listen to the
passion which dragged on his feeble
body through privations and labors en
tlrely beyond his strength. Ho would
huvo thought it disgraceful nnd cow
ardly to complain when under arms. I
could not Induce him lo try again tho
muriatic baths ond mineral waters that
had been so useful to him tho year be
fore. Ho had not time, ho said. Sev
eral times I found him In his barracks
overcome with fatigue. His life was
then wasting away. Ho slept scarcely
four hours; ho nto hardly nnytlilng;
his whole existenco wns centered in
riding and military exercises. Ho re
fused all rest, mid to my questions al
ways answered, 'I am perfectly well.'"
It Is needless to say more ; his death
now became only n question of a vi ry
short time. On tho22il of July, 1832,
ho expired without a strugglo, in tho
same chamber formerly occupied by
his great father, in tho samo place,
where, for the last time dictating peace
asn victor, Napoleon had slept nmid
dreams of further glory, promising
himself a glorious marriage nnd tho
perpetuity of his dynasty.
One solemn reflection follows on this
premature death. What wero tho se
cret and hidden thoughts of this young
prince, to what end this mad pursuit
after mllltnry knowledge, that wero
hU hopes In tho future? Did his soul
burn for his own personal glory nnd
grasp of empire, or had he consecrated
his life ton signal und fearful revenge
on those who had cast such doep nnd
bitter indignities on the last years of
his illustrious father? Death gives no
answer to theso pregnant questions,
but well may it ho further nked, was
thosorrowful aud early fate of the Duke
do Reichstadt all a misfortune? Was it
not rather a great mercy vouchsafed
from on high not only to humanlty,but
oven to tho restle-s nnd craving spirit
of tho youthful prince himself?

more elegance of delivery.
As a legal orator he had a mysterious

Turning to mo he said: "Sir, is not a

Ho used to bathe every day, and after

learned, ho said, "salt would preserve
tho skin." It was truo that his com
plexion was flue, so much sj that there
was a rumor spread that hu painted.
This was not true, for our narrator has
time and again seen him plungo hl
head Into a basin and glvo his face such
a rubbing that no paint in tho world
could remain on it. Ho paraded hi-
efforts In making this show. Ho liked
to hear such rumors of himself, lie

and sixty when In Washington, though
he looked like thirty when ho went in
to company. He was not very fond of
society, und would not remain longer
than ten o'clock nt n party. When he
camo jut ho would say, "Let us go
homo and have a chat," which our nar
rator was most willing to do. When
ho got there, ho would begin to unmake

neck, his more than ordinarily so. Ills
wholo dress was faultless and beautiful,
as well as most fashionable. The only
thing that troubled him wus his thin
hair, though ho was not bald. Alter
ho had all his tight clothes off ho would
fall back into his chair and tell his ser
vants to bring him n glass of "peach

excellent punch made with old peach
brandy. JJo would turn to our narra

I will." Thero wo would sit and talk
