A BOYISH ESCAPAIlF! THAT Tlfnrw Tiir-
TU1I.EBIES INTO A PAROXYSM OF
About fifteen years ago, when the Second
I-mpire was in the heyday of its prosperity,
a great commotion occurred one day at the
Palace of theTuileries. The Prince Imperi
al was missing. His tutor, iM. Monnler ;
his valet, UhimBnn j his equerry, M. Hach
on, might have been observed tearing down
the terrace which skirts the Quai du Louvre,
followed by young Louis Conneau, the
Prince's playmate. Young Conueau an
peared ready to cry ; and the three officials
above-named seemed disposed to hold him
responsible for the mishap which they dread
ed.for every now and then they turned round
gesticulating, and sharply repeated the ques
tion, 'When did you see him last?' It was
about ten o'clock on a summer morning,and
tbe public part of the Tuilcries gardens was
nlready crowded with nursemaids and chil
dren. Some other walkers were aboard, too,
inhaling the tonic of Parisian. Juno air, nnd
several of these, noticing the goings to and
fro of tho persons on the terrace, stopped
and stared, imagining that some court dog
must have played (he truant. It would have
given them nn electrical sensation if they
could have guessed that it was the heir to
tlio throno who was being sought for among
the rhododendrons and lilac bushes. Thi
little bit of news, retailed by them in cafes
as it would have been very speedily would
have been enough to occasion a heavy fall
in rentes and to have spread a panic on the
Bourse that afternoon.
The Prince's tutor, equerry aud valet
knew this but too well : and so did young
Conneau, whose youthful mind had long ago
opened to the comprehension that his Im
perial playmate was not a boy like others.
Guards surrounded him ; all his steps were
watched ; ho could not wander out of tbe
sight of those appointed to keep their eyes
on him without raising an amount of fuss of
which Conneau himself always suffered
rather more than the Prince did. The funct
ioiw of whipping-boy had happily been
abolished before Louis Conueau's time; but
whenever the Prince did anything amiss, it
was Conneau who was held blameworthy.
He was told that he ought to set a better ex
ample, that lie ought not to lead his imperial
Highness astray ; that he was a boy who
enjoyed great honors and had consequently
big duties, all of which sayings Conneau
bore with an air of outward penitence but
with inward mutiny. Now, this much lec
tured youth happened to know that the
Princo Imperial chafed omslderably under
the tutelage in which he was held, and had
long cherished the ambition of going forth
and having a long day's spree by himself in
the streets of Paris. There was a certain
fried potato stall where II. I. H. had said
he should like to regale himself incognito,
and he much wished to go and mix with the
herds of boys whom he had seen streaming
out of the Lycees toward four in the after
noon, and to join in some of those deligbt
tul combats which they waged among them
selves with their dictionaries and satchels.
Too generous to drag bis comrade into a
scrape, the Prince had never asked Conneau
to join him in an escapade; but he had
solemnly warned him that on the first oc
casion when he should catch M, Monnier
napping, the officer on guard dozing, and
the sentry at the garden gate looking stupid
on his post, be should avail himself of this
combination of circumstances and be oif.
Louis Councau had treated this confidence
as sacred, but he had used the voice of wis
dom to persuade the Prince that there were
just as good fried potatoes to be had at the
Tuileriesas at the corner of the Rue St.
Honore ; and that eating these delicacies
with one's fingers out of a piece of greasy
yellow paper constituted no such treat as H.
H. fancied. However, the Prince seemed
now to havo disregarded the advice, and
Conneau, hurried by questions, was at last
fain to own that he thought his Highness
had goue out for a bit of fun.
"Fun i" yelled M, Monnler, lifting his
arms in desperation ; "does he think it's
fun to make us run about after him in this
fashion t Where has he gone now ? Tell
us at once if you know."
'Perhaps he baa gone to buy two sous'
worth of potatoes, 'suggested young Conneau
timidly. It was a hazardous statement to
make, for the three officials glared at him as
it they thoiiiht a jest would be most unsea
sonable at such a moment.
'Potatoes V echoed the erudite M. Slon
nier, 'Why he only breakfasted an hour
'Boys are often ready for two breakfasts,'
remarked M, Uachon, the equerry, luml
That's not the question,' cried the tutor,
retracing his steps, and walking rapidly
back toward the palace, 'You must lead us
tothepolato shop, Conneau, if you know
where it is. Quick 1 come, now, I take It for
grauted you are not misleading us.'
'I can not atllrm he has gone for pota'
toes,' whined Conueau, feeling the conjunct
ure was serious. 'Perhaps be has gone to
have a fight with tho Lycee boys.'
'Meln flott I a light inlt raurient I' ex

turning to tho color of beetroot.
BLOOMSBURG, PA., FRIDAY, OCTOBER 17.
'Not n word more,' gasped M. Monnler.
for they were nearing a sentry," and observed
tlio captain of the guard utandlng on tho
steps ofthe Vavillontlc Yoreand sniffing the
air,as it lie smelt something In the wind.
Come along, como along, we must keep this
irom tho hmperor; he would become 111 from
'And from tbe Empress,' whispered M.
Ilaclioii,who feared that her Majesty's wrath
might possibly not manifest Itself la silent
It was a great responsibility that the par
ty were assuming iu concealing the Prince's
disappearance from the Emperor ; for there
was a standing order at court that If any
thing happened to the Prince his Majesty
was to be informed of it without delay and
that the Prefect of Polico was to be tole
graphed for. It was just possible that the
Prince might have been kidnapped ; and
under these circumstances it was of the ut
most importance that tbe Prefect should be
warned at once In order that the entire bri
gade of the secret police might be thrown
out over tho capital like a hugo net closing
Its meshes over the railway stations and tho
gates which lead out of Paris. The truth Is,
though, that tho persons who were hunting
for Napoleon's heir dreaded to be called
sharply to task for dereliction of duty in
suffering their precious charge to slip out
unobserved ; and that they hoped that by
putting their best feet foremost they might
be successful in overtaking his Highness
without police assistance. Louis Conneau
avouched that the potato stall which had
tempted his comrado was within n stone's
throw of the Tuileries, and as to Lycecs, it
was probable that the one which the Prince
knew best by sight was that of Charlemagne,
near the Itastllle end of the Rue de Rivoli.
So M. Monnier, Bacnon, and Uhlmann,
along with youngConneau, mightsoou have
been seen scudding across the Place du
Carrousel toward the Rue do Rivoli entrance;
but so well used the police of tbe Tuileries
to bo conducted In those times, that a couple
of tho palace detectives well-dressed gen
tlemen, with red ribands in their button
holes who saw them hurry out, suspected
something wrong, and stole after them. Per
haps they fancied that M. Monnier bad
purloined some of the crown diamonds, and
that M. Uachon and M. Uhlmann were
going with him to share the proceeds. Mis
trust of honest men is the prime virtue of
The old woman who kept the fried potato
stall at the corner of tho Rue St. Honore
and the Rue des Hons Enfanls was known
in the quarter by the nickname of Mere
Rissole. She was rather a character In her
way ; and, though not possessed of such fiue
literary and artistic collections as her sister
friers who sell potatoes to the rising talent of
tbe Quartier Latin, she nevertheless wielded
some social influence by reason of having
some hundred garrulous female concierges
for her customers. To such a woman any
bit of news was welcomed as a broad piece
of silver, and worth it, for It helped her to
keep her customers in patience while the
process of slowly gilding the potatoes in the
hissing grease was going on. Wherefore.
Mother Rissole fairly panted with excite
ment when she was accosted by three per
spiring men and a little boy who all asked
her with breathless eagerness whether she
had seen another little boy aged about nine,
dressed in black velvet a handsome boy,
with large soft eyes and winning ways "in
fact, the Prince Imperial," blurted out poor
M. Monnier, who was beginning to have
misgivings lest he should sleep at Mazas auJ
subsequently be tried on a capital charge.
'You must know the Prince Imperial, mad-
ame ; tell us truly whether you have seen
Seigneur Dieu 1 Why, it must be the
boy who came here about an hour ago, but
I didn't notice him,' exclaimed the old wo
man, dropping her knife into the frying-pan
from surprise, and splashing a drop of scald
ing grease on to the round chin of M. Uach
on, who murmured a benison as he wiped it
off. 'Mon Dieu I mon Dieu 1' added she,
'why, ho gave me a franc, and would't take
any change then he walked off with a
shabby man in a bad hat, who often comes
to me to buy his breakfast.'
'Shabby man bad hat 1' echoed M. Mon
nier, beside himself. 'Which way did they
go ? Quick I we've not a moment to
'I really don't know,' answered Mother
'Do you know where this shabby customer
of yours lives ?' asked M. Baclion, putting a
more practical question.
'Is his hat so very bad t Perhaps we might
know him by that,' asked Louis Conneau,
anxious also to display his acumen,
'I don't know where the man lives, but
I've heard that he's a journalist,' answered
the fried potato woman. 'He sometimes
gives me a bundle of newspapers to pay for
his breakfast instead of money.'
'What papers ?' inquired M. Monnier.
'I don't know, sir ; I can't read,' was tho
'Anyhow, the man's a Radical,' opined M.
Uachon. 'No Conservative writer would
come to buy fried potatoes at a stall and pay
for them in kind.'
This little sally made no one smile, for
matters were beginning to look ugly. The
Crown Prince in the bands of a shabby Rad
ical might mean all sorts of abominable
things, not the least probable of which
might be the demand for a thumping ran
som, lo make matters worse, it began to
rain at that moment, and the party bad of
course, no umbrellas. They could not get
Into a cab, because it was now their duty to
walk up the Rue Rivoli as far as the College
Charlemagne and see If they could not fall
In with the Prince on their way. Damp and
wretched, they trudged ofron their unprom
ising errand, little Conneau having to run to
keep pace with them, followed at a respect
ful distance behind. By the time they
reached the Hotel de Vllle they were drip
ping sops ; and upon arriving at tbe collego
they wereBteamlng from heat and moisture
like boiled vegetables. Unhappily,thelr per
severance was not to be rewarded, for on
looking up and down the street, where the
rain was falling in torrents, they saw nothing
resembling a Prince nor even ashibby Rad
ical, There were men with bad hats enough
but tbey were ordinary folks hurrying
through their business in the rain, and of
fering nothing suspicious to the eye of the
beholder. It bad been the practice of M,
Monnier to Improve the shining hours which
he spent with the tbe Imperial pupil by
taking the casual objects and Incidents of
life as texts for instructive sermons. He bad
already made mental note of the fact that If
, he recovertd bis pupil safe and sound he
would discourso to him about polatoes,scald
lug grease, Radicals, and tho uses to which
a hat may be put when the nap Is gone; but
ho now added to his mental notes that con
striction uf the throat which Is a symptom of
great fear, and from which ho began to suf
fer acutely at that moment. He remarked
also how his friend Uachon and the valet
Uhlmann were marking time nervously on
the pavement, as If they, too, saw no pleas
ing vista opening before them ; but this In
teresting observation did not cloak from him
the necessity of returning to the Tuileries
without further delay. So a cab was hailed,
and the whole dismal party got Into It.
Liuis Conneau, who had borne up bravely
till then, began to cry, by doing which he
rendered great service to the three men, who
only wanted such an excuse to upbraid hint
all threo together, and vow that the whole
thing was his fault
Let us tread lightly over tho scene that
took place at tho Tuileries when It was dis
closed to Napoleon III. and tho Empress
that their son had taken what the French
figuratively call the key of the fields, and
had last been seen In tho company of a tat
terdemalion quill driver. How aids-do-camp
rushed about and how maids of honor faint
ed ; how secretatles of the State were Bent
for, and arrived with their hair disheveled ;
how tho Prefect of Police drove to and fro
about the city, giving orders and cross-orders
; and how, during five mortal hours,
the entire polico of the best policed city in
the world left ofT hunting rogues to chaie
their Imperial master's heir all these
things will be recorded some day when the
Court history of tho Second Empire gets
written. Enough to Bay here that toward
six In the evening, when tho confusion
in the palace was at its height, a rather dus
ty and somewhat abashed little boy was seen
parleying with the sentry who mounted
guard under the Triumphal arch of the
'Why, it's he!' screamed M. Monnier.whn
witnessed the sight from his window ; and
ho would have dashed out ot the room, but
he was practically in the custody of two of
ficers of the guards, who courteously re
strained him. The next moment, however,
shouts of joy, greetings, etc., mingled with
reproaches, could be heard in the passago
outside, and M, Monnier knew that bis pu
pil had come home safe and sound. Eti
quetto prevented the tutor from hastening
into the Emperor's presence unbidden ; but
he was soon summoned and, entering the
Empress' drawing-room, found her Majesty
laughing as she dried her eyes, while the
Emperor and half a dozen court ladies sur
rounded tho Prince Imperial, with amused,
half-wondering smiles, as if he were a boy
of some strange breed, telling marvelous
things. In sooth, the lad was seated on n
footstool, and, having made bis peace with
his parents for his truancy, was complacent
ly relating his adventures. On seeing his
tutor, he stood up and hung his head, as If
ashamed, for form's Bake.
'Ah, Louis, you will have to beg M, Mon
nier's pardon, for you put him in great
anxiety,' said the Emperor. 'Your punish
ment shall be to write out an account for
him of all you've been doing.'
'I can't remember every little thing, you

the prospective task.
M. Monnier made a mental note for a

he said : 'Well, moneigneur, do you at

the Prince. 'When it rained, be took me
into his house nnd showed me a number of

And the Prince looked up artlessly at the
Emperor, who winced.
A few weeks later one of those political
plots which used always to be breaking out
in Paris under tbe Empire (perhaps because
the police had some interest in their fre
quency) brought about a dozen so-called
revolutionists into the meshes of the Rue de
Jerusalem. Among them was a poor wight,
a journalist, named Victor Marchy,who had
but lately returned from ten years' captivity
at Cayenne, whence he had escaped. Lying
in prison, this unfortunate fellow was told
one day that papers had been found in his
lodging which implicated him in a plot
against the Emperor'a life.
'Ah pour ca non I' exclaimed Marchy.

Tho prisoner's photograph was submitted
to the Prince Imperial, who recognized it as
that of 'the shabby Radical with the bad

truant day. Wherefore the Emperor, as he
himself examined the portrait, said, with
some emotion :
'This man held my boy's life In his hands

A MONUMENT TO ANDIIK.
Thursday, October 2, was the hundredth
anniversary of tho execution of Major An
dre. The story of his arrest by three farm
ers, who were for tho time being acting as
vldettes for the Continental Army, Is fa
miliar to every school-boy. Paulding, Van
Wart and Williams will always figure In
American history as sturdy patriots,although
they were very humble and very obscure
persons. Paulding was a soldier, but at the
time of the capture of Andre ho seems to
have been out of the service In our days
these three unattached partisans of the rev
olutlonary cause would have been called
Tho amiable and generous Andre deserv
ed a better fate. However, his execution
was not only In strict accoidanco with the
laws of war, but the British had set a pre
cedent in the hanging of Lieutenant Nathan
Hale, who was captured under circumstan
ces almost precisely similar, which General
Washington could not overlook. Whatever
may be said at (his day of the stern sense of
duty which compelled the sacrifice of the
life of a brave and honorable man, the
British were In no position to question the
absolute justice of the act. Andre spent a
good deal of time in Philadelphia and was
a great favorite in society. His body was
burled near tho spot where ho was executed
and remained there until 1821, when his
bones were taken to England, and now hp
sleeps among the illustrious dead who have
been honored with a memorial tablet In
The farm on which Andre's body was bur
ied is now owned by Mr. Cyrus W. Field
and out of regard for his English friends'.
and especially at the solicitation of Dean
Stanley, Mr. Field has erected a monument
to mark the spot. It Is a handsomo shaft,
six feet seven inches in height and threo
leet square at the base. Dean Stanley wrote
the Inscription, and surely it is worthy of
its author .-

ItU A IIS.
This is the way I mako a good road with a
plow and drag : Commence in tho middle
of tho road with a good, sharp plow, as soon
as the frost is well out whilo tho ground is
yet soft, and plow-it into tho centre frombotli
ways, plowing a strip from twenty to twenty
five feet wide, then drag it down thoroughly;
then plow again in tho same way, then drag
again at least twice over, and bo on plowing
and dragging until tho road-bed is raised
from ono-and-a-half to two feet high. I am
sure to go straight, for nothing looks better
to mo than a straight road. I don't like ser
pentino roads. When raised high enough,
drag four or five times over, sow on grasi
seed and roll down.
In tho district where I livo wo aro taxed
about seventy days on tho road. A team,
plow and man aro counted threo days work.
With these soventy-days work wo can round
up a good half milo and it is as smooth when
we get done as a houso floor. Can drive a
two-forty gait just like 'a mice.' Being dono
while it is moist, it will pack down solid
and not run up. Wo used to wait until about
the 1st of June, then tear things all to pie
ces by getting lumps on to rough spots and
making them rougher, and soft dirt on to soft
6poti and making them sorter and somewhat
dangerous for spring wagons to pass over, go
ing 'helter-skelter up and down and all over.
Y ou gentlemen who like good roads try my
plan, 1 know you will like it. You will bo
astonished how much you can do in a day,
how fast you can round up tho road and how
nice and smooth it will bo when you get done.
Plow it fino, drag it fine and do it while the
ground is wet ; don't wait until it gets dry
and hard. Do it right and you will bo glad
aud happy and mako others happy. A good
coat of gravel put on one year after is an ex
cellent plan, and such a road will lust many
years without any more expense.

TIIR NEW INIIIAN WAIL
Tho slaughter of Maj. Thornburg and a
dozen soldiers in Colorado, perhaps
of the wholo of his force, adds another to
tho long list of needless horrors which have
attended our management of tho Indian
tribes within our borders. The painful re
flection about incidents like that of Milk Riv
er is that they excite so little attention. In
Kngland such an event would occupy a great
space in the press and in the debates on the
hustingj nnd in Parliament, and publio opin
ion would demand that the causes which
brought about tho calamity should bo fully
investigated in order that the blamo might be
placed whero it belonged. With us tho Ad
ministration knows it will not bo seriously
called to account cither for tho lack of a
sufficient military force at tho sccno of tho
outbreak, or for tho acts of the Indian De
partment which havo sent the Utcs on the
warpath. As for tho latter, wo know that
tho Indian Commissioner and Agents aro al
ways prepared to show or rather to pretend
to bIiow that tho turbulcnco of tho savages
is caused cither by tho faults of tho military,
tho acts of tho settlers, or their own innate
doviltry, and never by tho dishonesty, Jioefli
ciency, or lack of tact of the Indian Agents.
Whether In tho case of tho Utcs thero has
been any serious fault on tho part of tho
Agent Meeker and the civil authorities it is
still too early to form a decided opinion. The
facts, as far as they havo been developed,
point rather to lack of tact and knowledge
of the Indian character than to the outright
plundering of tho Indian?, which has too
commonly been the course of their Agents.
But it is evident that somebody has blun
dered hideously in tho disposition of the
troops. Tho reports show that Governor
Pitkin, Agent Meeker, and nearly everybody
clso in Colorado, havo long been distrustful
of this tribe. In the entiro absence of any
symptoms of disaflcctions of such a grave
character on other reservations, tho public
may fairly ask why as largo a forco as Gen.
Jlcrrilt is now commandino was not in the
vicinity of the Ute reservation before this
fire, which was known to be smouldering,
burst into flames. As at present advised, wo
see no excuso for this apparently criminal
neglect of symptoms which were notorious.
All these heart-sickening occurrences in
tho loss of our Canbys, Custers, Thornburgs,
and the rest of tho long roll of heroes sacri
ficed to tho insatiable rapacity of tho Repub
lican parly and its Indian ring speak but
ono lesson : That the respomibility of man
aging the Indian! ought to be placed in the
hands of those who, in case of mismanagement
will hare tofigh'. and be killed by them, Sun
SAYING CL0VF.lt SEED.
Tho very high price which farmers fre
quently have to pay I'or cloverseed should in
duce them to save at least a sufficiency for
their own supply, and undoubtedly, if well
followed up. make it a very profitable busi
ness as a money crop. A farmer, who is I
vouched for as one of tho best cloverseed sa
vers, gives tho following hints as to tho sav
ing of tho seed : 'Tho second crop is for the
seed, and is really fit for no other purpose, as
it salivates the stock fed on it. Tho best
time to cut for seed is a very nico point to
determine. It should be cut when a majori
ty of tho heads turn brown, and bcloro any
begin to shed off the littlo seod pods, each of
which contains a seed. Cut the second crop
ol clover just as though it were for hay, rake
it iuto windrows and let it lio and take ono
or two showers ; then put it into very small
cocks while ('amp, about ono good pitchfork
ful in a place, aud when it is dry put into
sacks and cap with something that will turn
water, or what is still better, if you havo a
shed or barn, put it thero and let it remain
until you get a huller to take it out for you.
Let our farmers save all tho cloverseed they
can, and thus help to mako thousands of dol
lars for the State, now sent out each year tor
cloverseed to sow.'
KILLED BY A DEAD SNAKE.
1 will tell you a very curious and melan
choly incident that happened on ono occasion
in a church where I was conducting the ser
vice. The windows and doors were, of course,
all wide open, and through ono of those open
doors a cobra glided into the church. I did
not notico it myself, but several of the con
gregation did, and were not unreasonably
much alarmed. Tho beadle, a native, was
fortunately on the alert, and ho managed to
procure a tulwar, with which he cut off the
creature's head before it had time to do any
mischief. Tranquillity was restored, and tho
service, proceeded to its close, when many of
the congrecation went to look at tho dead
snake as it lay headless on tho ground.
Among them was a man who, in his curiosity
to examino tho reptile, put hi3 foot on tho
head and rolled it toward him ; when ho in-
stantly uttered a loud exclamation and drew
his foot away. By somo means or other ho
had contrived to set in action tho muscular
apparatus attached to tho poison-fangs,wbich
had darted violently forward and struck him
on the foot. All remedies wcro useless ; in
halt an hour the poor fellow was a corpse
