Napoleon's Treatment of III (loncrals.

eminent a man at S.,nthoy could give cred

master whoso plan? hfi had cameil to miscar

who were successful hail no need to com
plain that their service were insiilllciently
appreciated. Kven M.ihcim had acquired
an Incomo of $100,000 while his star was in
tho .nccndent. Soult had $00,000 a year;
Ney nearly $133,000 j D.ivomt $1SO",000;
while llerller, l'riiieo of Keucliatcl, enjoy dl
a princely revenue of some $270,000. "They

It may bo suspected that It was rather from
motives of policy than of gratitudo that Na
poleon thus created tlio fortunes of his mar
shals in a day. - Ho was anxious to establish
as a suport to his throne a powerful aristoc
racy which in splendor and (to do him jus
tico) in tho brilliancy of its achievements
should rival the old nobility of France. Ho
forgot, however, that though monarchy and
democracy can exist and havo existed with
out proscription, an aristocracy to be vener
able must absoutely bear tho seal of antiquity.
In nono of his projects had Cromwell failed
moro hopelessly than in his attempt to re
construct tho House of Lorih in Kngland.
Napoleon, it is true, did not propose to con
fer legislative functions on his nobles as such
nevertheless ho intended them to bo a priv
ileged class, and this alone was a moro cour
ageous than wio idea on the morrow of 17S0.

Tiio Catlicilral of Ntre Dame.
Tlio church of our lady is not only one of
tho finest and oldest ecclesiastical edifice in
Paris, but the most beautiful in all Franco.
It stands on tho island of tho city, in tho
Seine, in tho most ancient quarter of tho me
tropolis. Tho first stono was laid in 1103,
and it took thrco centuries to build it. Af
ter having sulTorcd from the ravages of time
and violence, it was completely restored
about 1815. The west front, witli its two
ponderous square towers,aud its innuendo rose
window over the central portal, which should
be seen when glowing in the rays of tiio de
clining sun, is indescribably grand and strik
ing. The stylo of architecture is pure Goth
ic. It is built in the form of a latin cross,
and is -115 feet in length by 150 in breadth.
In the west front there are threo entrances,
through richly sculptured ogive arches. Over
theso porticoes are twenty-eight colossal stat
ues of Kings of .Tudah, popularly supposed
to bo French kings. Above the hugo rose
window, and extending across tho entire
front, is tho gallery of columns. Tiio towers
are 201 feet high. In the south tower hangs
tho famtftis bell of Notre Dame, weighing
32,000 pounds. The lover of romanco should
endeavor to obtain his first view of Nitre
Dame from one of tlio many bridges that
span the Seino as tho full moon climbs tho
eastern sky, silvering at first tho outlines of
tlio massive pile, then gradually developing
in a broader clfulgcncc those marvelous de
tails of buttrosj, pinnacle, canopied niche,
and rose window, that relieves its heavy
grandeur. Not even tho full moon will re
veal all of its quaint anatomy, but dark
shadows from tho numerous projections will
still involvo this monstrous work in a
shroud of medieval mystery.
"It is better to lovo a man you can never
marry than to marry a man you tiev.cr love.
This is a short text for a long sermon," says
some wUo man or woman. Wo do not pro
pose to tire any one with a long sermon up
on It. This weather is discouraging to long
sermons, even were they worthy to bo en
dured at any season. A few words on the
text arc sufficient. A loveless marriage is
much worse for a woman in every way than
for a man. In the first place woman has
tho credit, whether-sho deserves it or not, of
being much moro refined, of possessing much
more delicacy and sensibility than tho
"stronger sex." lieing thus liMicr. her do-
gradation, when it comes, is much moro tcr-
nblo nnd thorough. Few things can con
duco to this result in a greater degreo than
tho constant and intimate relation of mar
ried life with a man she docs not love. Wo
havo heard refined young women speak with
disgust of tho coarseness of tho conversation
of a class oftheir married lady acquaintances,
aud in many eases havo traced this disagree
able trait back to its cause a well-known
lovolens wedded life. Then again, perhaps

iiiu nuiiiun who marries jor support, lor a
home, au "establishment," or because sh
has never loved any ouo and fears that tho
present will bo her last chanco (dreadful
thought), afterwards meets some ono whom
sho can and does love. Tlio result is easily
foreseen, cither a life spent in the terrible
effort to subdue an unhappy passion, or tho
Ulvorco court. Alter all, tho good old Qua
kcr custom is best, dim deliberation and re
flection befoio "eiilering tho married state,
Marrying in Wo to repent at lelure, is
very Usuiouablo now-a-days, but it is a fash
ion which can bo profitable or pleasant only
h tho lawyers, and not to them if they iiave
any pity for tho unhappy victims of ante-
nuptial foolishness and post-nuptial misery.
How Juuaiw Dirn:n Judgo Truukey
of Venango, ono of tho ablest judges In tho
btate, lias decided that to untitle a citi.eu to
voto at au election his tax must havo been
paid at least ono month prior thereto, and u
payment for him by another must cither
hnvo been authorized or ratified within tlio
tho saino limit of time. This is directly In
conlllct with Judge IVarson's opinion In the
case delivered shortly after last year's elc&
Moil, in which Ic was held that tho ratifica
tion related back to tho time of performance
and adopted tho act as of that date. This is
an important matter, for It Is now dangerous
to liavo taxes paid by others, unless by ex
press authority ar.d within tho thirty days,
It Is therefore illegal for coniuilttoM to pay
tho taxes of a list of delinquents, without
their personal request, simply to secure their
votes, No dating back the ratification, any
more thau dating back tho receipts, will bo

Keep Ammonia in the House.
No housekeeper nhould bo without n hot
tlo of spirits of ammonia, for besides its
medical' value, It Is invaluable for house
hold purposes. It is nearly as useful as soap,
and Its cheapness brings It within reach of
all. rut n tcaspoonfiil of ammonia to a
quart of warm soap-sud, dip In a llanncl
cloth, and wipo oil' the dust and lly-specks,
and seo for yourself how much labor it will
s.ivc, No scrubbing will bo needful. It
will cleanse and brighten silver wonderfully
to a pint of suds inixa tcaspoonfiil of spirit",
dip In your silver spoons, forks, etc., rub
witli a brush nnd polish with chamois skin,
For washing mirrors and windows it is
very desirable; put a few drops of ammonia
on a pieco of paper nnd it will readily take
oil' every spot or linger matk on tiio glass,
It will lake out grcao spots from every fa
bric; put on the ammonia nearly clear, lay
blotting paper over tho place and place a
hot ll.it iron on it fur n few moments. A
few drops in water will clean laces and
whiten them as well, also muslins. Then it
is a most refreshing agent at tlio toilet tabic;
a few drops innbain of water will make a
better bath than pure water, and if tlio skin
is oily, it will removo all glossiness and dis
agreeable odors. Added to a foot bath It
entirely absorbs nil noxious smell, so often
arising from the feet in warm weather, and
nnthing is belter for cleaning tho hair from
dandruff nuil dust.
For cleaning hair brushes it is equally
good, l'ut a tablospoonful of ammonia in
to one pint of water, and shako the brushes
through the water. When they look whito
rinso them in water and put them in tho
sunshine, or in a warm place to dry. Tlio
dirtiest brushes will como out of this bath
white and clean. For medical purposes it
Is unrivaled. For the headache it is a de
sirable stimulant, a frequent inhaling of its
pungent odors will often entirely remove"
catarrhal colds. There is no better remedy
for heartburn and dyspepsia, and the aro
matic spirits of ammonia is especially pre
pared for theso troubles. Ten drops of it in
a wine-glass arc often a great relief. The
spirits of ammonia can bo taken in the same
way, but it is not as palatable
In addition to nil these uses, tho effect of
ammonia on vegetation is beneficial. If
you desiro roses, geraniums, fuchsias, etc.,
to become more flourishing, you can try it
upon them by adding five or six drops to
every pint of warm water you give them,
but dou't repeat the doso oftcner than fivo or
sir days, lest you stimulate too highly. So
bo sure and keep a largo bottle of it in the
house, atrl have a glais stopper for it, as it
very evanescent and also injurious to
What is it to.be a Christian.
It will bo a great help if at starting you
have a right idea of what it really is to be a
Christian. Do not look at it first as some
thing that is going to make you happy.
Think, rather, that you are aiming to be tho
best and noblest kind of a man and woman.
You are going to bo faithful, and brave, anil
unselfish and lovable. You are ifoinir to
think moro of other people's happine.-s than
of your own. You wo to live like a child
of God, taking him for your father, trusting
dm for everything, seeking through his help
to be like him. In a word you are to try to
ive like Jesus Christ lived. Never forget
that to be a Christian is to bo like Christ.
l'erhaps to some of you tiio words "to bo
like Christ," have a kind of beautiful sound
but not a very clear meaning. Let us start at
the begining, then, with something so simple
that all can understand it. Tlio first thing
is to bo like Christ, and the great tiling, is to
bo faithful to cveiythiug that wo know is
right. That menus a great deal. It means
something different at every hour. In school
timo it means studying one's lessons faith
fully ; at play-time, it means being generous
and gentle and fair; when wo are at home,
it is to bo watchful for tho comfort and hap
piness of every one in tho houso; when wc
are tempted to any kind of evil, by other
people, by our own thoughts, it is saying no,
;ind sticking to it. It is a thousand such
tilings that make up a Christian life.
A littloboy wanted to borrow his aunt's dog
for u moment, and asked her to let him have
a piece of string, so he could lead him.
"What are you going to do with him?'' said
the good lady. Tho boy hesitated a mo
ment, nnd then said, "Well, you see, a boy
round the corner bet me his dog was a larg
er dog than yours." "Well," said the aunt,
suppose it turns out that his dog is the larger
ono?" "Then," said tho nephew, "you'll
loso your dog."
A lazy girl, who liked to live in comfort
and do nothing, asked her fairy godmother
to givo her a good genius to do everything
for her. On tho instant tho fairy called ten
dwarfs, who dressed and washed tho little
girl. All was done so uiccly that sho was
happy, except for the thought that they
would go away. "To prcyc-nt that," said tlio
godmother, "I will place them permanently
in your ten pretty little fingers." And they
aro there yet.
A youngster being required to write a
composition upon some portion of tlio human
body, and expounded it as follows: "A
throat is convenient to have, especially to
rooiters and ministers. Tho formercatscorn
nnd crows with it: tho latter preaches
through his'n, and then ties it up. Tills is
pretty much all I can think of about necks."
"My dear," said n, husband to his wife, on
observing new red-striped stockings on his
only heir, "why havo you mado barber's
poles out of our child's legs?" "Ilecause ho
is a little shaver." was tho neat reply.
A very tall and shabby looking man,
after having a glais of liquor, asked tho bar
tender if ho could change $20 bill. The
gentleman informed him that ho could.
"Well," said tho tall one, "I'll go out and
seo if I can find one."
Look on tho bright side of things, for none
are so unhappy us thoso who are forever
thinking how hard their lot is, and how
much better olfare others. Think of thoso
who havo less, sind life will bo joyous.

For restoring to Gray Hair its
natural Vitality and Color.
winch is nt

hair. It soon
or gray hair
to its original
color, with tho
nloss and freshness of youth. Thin
linir 13 thickened, fulling Iinir checked,
mill baldness often, though not always,
cured by its use. Nothing can restore)
tho hair whero tho follicles aro de
stroyed, or tho glands atrophied and
decayed; but such as remain can bo
saved by this application, and stimu
lated into activity, so that a now
growth of hair is produced. Instead
of fouling tho hair with a pasty sedi
ment, it will keep it clean and vigorous.
Its occasional uso will prevent tlio hair
from turning gray or falling olT, and
consequently prevent baldness. Tho
restoration of vitality it gives to tlio
scalp nrrcsts and prevents tho forma
tion of dandruff, which is often so mi
cleanly and offensive Froo from thoso
deleterious substances which niako
somo preparations dangerous and inju
rious to tho hair, tho Vigor can only
benefit but not harm it. If wanted
merely for a HAIR DKESSING,
nothing olso can bo found so desirable.
Containing neither oil nor dye, it does
not soil whito cambric, and yet last3
long on tho hair, giving it a rich, glossy
lustre, aud a grateful perfume.
