Ilctay Patterann's Feeullar Position li
The late Prince Napoleon was the son of
Jerome, the ydurigest brother of Napoleon
the Great. This fact brings nearer to us
that groat series of events beginning with
"a whiff of grapushot" and ending with
Waterloo. Ilia death, moreover, has a
peculiar vivid interest for Americans, bo
cause It recalls the story of the first love of
his father, Jerome, for a young American
girl, Betsy Patterson, of Baltimore.
It is a sad tale of romance, iiiiixjrial am
bition and diplomacy. Napoleon had al
ready won undying fume iu Italy when
his you'ug brother, Jerome, was but twelve
years of ago. Ho soon entered the French
navy," for it was his great brother's ambi
tipu to make of him a lighter on the seas
fit to cope with NeLson. It was an English
fvlggto .that destroyed this plan by driving
the French frigate bearing Jerome Into
American waters. At Baltimore Jerome
fall madly in lore with and married Eliza
belli, the beautiful daughter of William
Patterson, a rich mcrvliaut, and an Irish
man by birth. Elizabeth, or Betsy, as slio
was culled, had a consuming ambition, and
When friends opposed the marriage sbo
said, "I would rather be the wife of a
brother of Napoleon for one hour than the
wife of any other man for life."
npoloon was highly displeased with this
match, becauso he already saw himself on
the throne and wished his brothers to
marry only "blue bloods." Joromo and his
wife only learned of the establishment of
tho empire when about to sail from New
Yqfk to beg tho forgiveness of tho first
consul. They .learned at the same timo
that both Jerome and his brother, Lnciun,
were debarred from the line of succession
for marrying against Napoleon's wishes.
Nevertheless tho young couple, still hoping
forgiveness and advancement, sailed for
Lisbon in 1805.

There Jerome was arrested and taken to
France, after a tearful adieu and protesta
tions of everlasting fidelity to his wife, who
was not allowed to bind. She sent a mes
sage to tho emperor which tickled him im
"Tell the emperor," she said, "that Mme.
Bonaparte- demands her rights as a mem
ber of the imperial family."
She proceeded to England, where a boy
was soon born . to her and christened
Jerome Napoleon Bonaparte. Jerome, the
futher, proceeded to Paris, little thinking
Hint lie would never see Betsy, again save '
as a stranger and with another wife upon
Napoleon positively refused to recognize
the marriage, bnt promised Betsy an an
nual pension of $12,000, providing she
would return to America and renounce
the name of Bonaparte, which conditions
Her husband, Jerome, thus separated
from her, was compelled by his brother to
marry Catharine, the daughter of the king
cf Wartemburg. Soon after he was made
king of Westphalia. He then sent to
America for Betsy's child, "Bo" an ab
breviation of Bonaparte. She refused to
give him up, and in reply to the offer from
her husband of a ducal crown, with an in
come of $-10,000 a year, she sent back tho
scornful message: "Westphalia is too
Email for two queens; besides, I already
receive $12,000 a year from the emperor,
nud I would rather be protected by the
wing of the eagle than be dependent on
th bill of a goose,"
She ever af terward spoke with contempt
of her husband, although "Bo" frequently
visited his father's family in Europe, where
he was treated as a son and a brother, his
half sister, Princess Mathilde, being es
pecially fond of him. Afterward "Bo"
married a Baltimore lady, causing his
mother, Madame Betsy, great anger by
doing so. His cousin, Kimperor Napoleon
III, invited him to France, where he was
legitimized and received as a member of
the family. His half brother, the son of
Jerome by Catharine, quarreled with the
emperor, and there was at one time a
strong intention to make "Bo" the heir
presumptive, but ultimately "Bo" was de

The. letters show a great contempt for
her native land. She wrote to her futher
from Florence in 1820 as follows:
"A parent cannot make a silk purse of a
sow's car, and you found that you could
not make a sow's ear of a Bilk purse. It
was impossible to bend my talents and
my ambition to the obscure destiny of a
Baltimore housekeeper, and it was absurd
to attempt it after I had married the
brother of aa emperor. I bad not the
meanness of spirit to descend from such
elevation to the deplorable condition of
being the wifo of an American.
"I often tried to reason myself into the
courage necessary to commit suicide when

ibns were a carpet bag and a red umbrella,

leaving a fortune of $1,600,000 to Bo's two
sons, Jerome and CharhW. Bonaparte.

When we first traveled in India we knew
very little Hindustani, and on arriving at
apHlatial but very comfortless hotel at
Jubbulpore I wanted a small pitcher of
Lot water to bathe an injury on my little
Cuger. We know that chola was "small"
and ,garrum "warm," but we could not
think of the Hindustani for "water." At
lost 1 thought I hud made the bearer un
derstand what I wanted. After waiting
some time he returned, looking well
pleased with himself at so easily guessing
my wishes, und, placing a small cup of tea
at my side, bowed profoundly, and was
about to leave the room when I called him
bock and tried ugain to explain.
1 his time we bad to wait still longer, but
presentl we heard a thumping on the
stairs uud a deal of gasping and groaning,
and tbeu three men appeured carrying a
most enormous caldron of boiling water.
Our next journey was to Allahabad, and
on reaching the station at dawn we hired
a carriage and told the coachman in our
best Hindustani to drive to the nearest
hotel. We soon stopped at tho entrance of
a large house and a well dressed European
oiiened tins carriage door for us and polite
ly lielH!d us out.
"I am glad you have come so early," he
said, "for you will have pleuty of time to
see everything, and I assure you I can
show you some very handsome pieces of
furniture. What will you look at first?"
"After traveling all night we are too
tired and hungry to look at anything at
present," I answered sharply, "but will
you show us iuto tho best bedroom yn've
got and send us some breakfast imme
Tho man stared ot mo In utter astonish
ment and turned to Mr. Kor for an ex
planation. After a time we found out our
mistake. The house was not a hotel but a
private residence, and the furniture was
about to bo sold at auction. The European,
whom we had mistaken for tho hotel man
ager, was the auctioneer. So our Hin
dustani had been again at fault.

A good story is told of Bay Middleton,
whoso namo in England is a household
word for jokes and escapades of all kinds.
It seems that in the house was a guest
who, for some reason, did not bring a
smoking jacket with him, and committed
the heinous offense of appearing in the
smoking room in a dress coat. Bay Mid
dleton vowed vengeance against him, and
promised him that if ho repeated the of
fense he would tear the coat from his hack.
The following night the man appeared in
the smoking room very late, wearing, as
usual, his evening coat.
He took his position before tho fireplace,
with his arms ou the mantelpiece, gaziLg
contemplatively into the fire and present
ing his coat tails in a tempting fashion to
Bay Middlnton. The offer could not be re
fused, and Bay seized the coat tails and
split the coat up to the collar. The victim
never moved or said a word. The joke
seemed to fall flat. Some one asked ho of
the split coat why he did not make any ob
jection, upon which he said:
"Why should If As I came down stairs
I went into Bay's room and put on his even
ing coat." Now York World.

The Tallest German Soldier.
Until quite lately, Captain Pluskow, of
the First regimout of Guards, had been
considered the biggest man in the German
army. He measured over eighty inches in
height But a short time since a young
Rhinelander joined the Fifth regiment of
Foot Guards, as a "one year's volunteer,"
who attains the colossal height of over
t feet KM inches. Since 1850 the First regi
ment ot Guards has not had so tall a man.
At that time they had a man who was so
tall that everything, even his bedstead,
hod to be mode especially for him. His
accoutrements are preserved still among
the curios of the regiment. Leisure Hour.

A GIRL'S FIGHT WITH A PANTHER.
The Knraged Wild Cat Thrown Down
Precipice by Her Fair Antaaronlit,
The story was brought to Pueblo, Col.,
by a messenger from up in the mountains
of a thrilling adventure which befell Nora,
the daughter of one of the settlement's
leading members. She is a devoted orni
thologist, and had captured an eaglet from
a nest in the top of a tall oak, back ot
Quarry peak, a long ledge crowned ridgo,
distant half a mile from her home. On her
return from the trip to the eyrie Bhe deter
mined to cross the crest of the ridge and
desoend the crags instead of making a cir
cuit, as she had dono in the ascending.
The ledge does not average more than forty
feet in height, but was so steep as to be
She had discovered two places, however,
where she could make the descent, and
started down the perilous route. There
was ono place in the descent where she
must drop from the edge of oue rock to the
top f ' another six fwt below. Strapping
the eaglet to her shoulders, she made her
way skillfully and safely, and bad just
dropped from tho overhanging ledge of one
"step" in the stairway to the landing be
neath when a plaintive, half human cry
reached her ears, seeming to come from the
base of the crag beneath. A great branch
ing oak, with limbs shadowing the jagged
rocks and almost touching them, had
grown up from below. She peeped cau
tiously over the precipice down through
the foliage, not daring to make the slight
est noise snd almost fearing to breathe.
She could see nothing. The prolonged
moaning caterwaul was that of a young
panther. The fair hunter had no weapon
with her except a small knife and a pocket
revolver a mere toy and with panthers
sho quickly decided that the knife was
equally as good a defenso as the revolver.
Sho cast her eyes wistfully into tho limbs
above and then down over the precipice to
ward the jugged rocks below.
V hue bending over thus the shadows of
some flying tiling seemed to pass over her;
thero was an ominous rattle of loosened
stones above and a rustling shock among
tho upper branches of tie tree. Tiieu on
the instant another shrill scream, winch
now seemed to come up triumphantly
from the foot of tho ledge, and was an
swered by a snarling cry from the tree top.
The girl knew just what had happened,
and crouched quite limp and faint from
fright upon the shelf of the rock.
For a few moments sho dared not look
upward. Then anotliersnarl and ripping of
the bark drew her eyes irresistibly. At the
Bight which met hor gaze she shrank and
cowered closer to the ledge from which sho
hud just before dropped. Tho old panther
was there, the mother of the young one at
tho base of the ledge. Swaying to and fro,
sho clung to a branch anil glared fiercely
on tho intruder, her white fangs gleaming
us tho red lips quivered above them. The
long, lithe, brown body lay along the limb
as the creature prepared for a downward
Forsomo moments tho boost kept her
threatening attitude. At length, awed or
puzzled by the steady eyes of the girl, she
turned as if to go up the ledge. But just
then the yearning cry of the young ono
came up from below, and with a spring
the mother leaped to tho stony platform
besido the girl.
With an involuntary cry of horror the
mountaineer's daughter kicked with her
heavy shoes full into the panther's face
with such force as to push her over tho
edge. But oven then, whirling about, the
animal caught her dress and drew the girl
after it. As she slid off Nora caught hold
of the branch of the treo with one hand.
The other hand, with theknife in it, struck
out for tho assailant, and by good fortune
hit the creature's eye. Whether the socket
was pierced and the belli u stablicd, or
whether, blinded with pain, the fall was
awkwardly made and broko the animal's
back, could not be told, but, howling with
angor, she loosed her hold and fell down
the ledges and lay fifty feet below, dead.
The panther's carcass was brought in the
next day by her father. Cor. St. Louis

The late carl of Shaftesbury once lost
his watch while walking in lntechupel.
He advertised his loss, lis he valued his
watch for certain associations. Within
twenty-four hours his household was
aroused by a violent rin and knock at
tho street door, and the wheels of a vehicle
were heard hurrying away rn the distance,
On opening the front door a sack was
found filled with something that nioveii,

A Free Wrestling Match.
As nearly as the spectators could judge
it was a friendly wrestling bout between
the black bears. - There were four of them
in a narrow cage in Central park. The
smallest one was inclined to run things,
Ho was particularly aggressive toward a
bigger, blase looking bear, who seemed to
want to be by himself and reflect. When
the little one amused himself with biting
the other's ear the big fellow thought it
was time to put an end to it. He brought
his paw around artd knocked the little fel
low against the bars. They grpwled chal
lenges back and forth like professionals
and then began to wrestle.
There was apparently a well understood
agreement that there should bo no biting
nor striking. It was a wrestling bout
without rules. The commotion attracted
many people. A man with a little round
paunch and thin legs put his flat crowned
hat on the side of his head, thrust out two
fingers and announced that he would ref
eree the match. He. called "time" and
"foul" in a loud tone, nnd quoted the rules
to the bears so that a white capped nurse
nearly fainted with laughter. The bears
were having no end of a good time. They
rollod about iu tho cage and roared as loud
as a Bowery actor in a melodrama. Once
the big one hugged the little one so hard
that his eyeballs seemed to start from his
head, but trie ntrie fellow Droits away and
overturned his opponent. The spectators
shrieked with delight and applauded vig
orously. A sparrow policeman camo along,
swinging bis club and wearing a heavy
frown. He stalked up to the cage and
stared dully and coldly at the wrestlers.
The bears slunk back in their cages. The
crowd melted away. The sparrow police
man jerkod in his chin, shrugged Ilia
shoulders and stalked away. New York
. Age of the Ohio.
An examination of the geological struc
ture of the country through which the
Ohio flows shows none but the extreme
end of the valley to be of later age than
the carboniferous. Portions are, indeed,
fur older, but the area covered by these,
though perhaps extensive enough to ullow
the development of somo system of draiu
ago, wus nover large ouuugh to develop a
stream of any great size. None of the
tributaries of the river, either from the
north or the south, flows through regions
more recent tlma the carboniferous, with
the exception of tho lower parts of the
Ohio itself and of the Tennessee, which
border on the quaternary. The lowest
formation in the valley is the Cincinnati,
which is just touched utyn single point, and
only for a short distance, ubout twenty
miles above the city.
It may be stated, theu, that since the
close of carboniferous time the river has
flowed mainly in tho same channel. The
vast antiquity of the liver in thus easily
established; and the existence of the wide
vlley, with its broad bottom lands, is
readily accounted for. The story of the
river during tho loug period of preglacial
time would be simple. Forages its waters
were probably poured directly into the
Gulf of Mexico, an arm of which extended
northward into the continent at least as
far us tho present site of Cairo, Ills. In
later timo the Mississippi-Missouri began
the formation of a delta, which, gradually
extending, has left tho Ohio a tributary
merely of the mighty "Father of Wuters."
