Murat was undoubtedly an excellent
cavalry oiricer, but he had too much
swagger, which spoils many a good
soldier. Lasnlle, too, was a very dash
ing: leader, but he ruined himself with
wine and folly. Now I, Ktlenne Ge
rard, was ' always totally devoid of
swagger, nd at the same time I was
very abstemious, except, maybe, at the
end of a campaign, or when I met nil
old comrade-in-arms. For these rea
sons I might, perhaps, hud It not been
for a certain dlindence, have claimed
to be the moat valuuble olllcer In my
own branch of the service. It is true
that I never rose to be more than a
chief of brigade, but then, as every one
knows, no one had a chance of rising
to the top unless he had the good for
tune to be with the emperor In his
early campaigns. Kxcept Lasalle and
Lobau and Urouet, I can hardly re
member any one of the generals who
had not already made his name before
the Kgypttan business. Even I, with
all my brilliant qualities, could only at
tain the head of my brigade, and also
the special medal of honor, which I re
ceived from the emperor himself, and
which J keep at home In a leather
pouch. Hut though I never rose higher
than this, my qualities were very
Well known by those who : d served
with me, and also by the English. After
they had captured me In the way which
I described to you the other night, they
kept a very good guard over me at
Oporto, and I promise you that they
did not give such a formidable oppo
nent a change of slipping through their
Angers. It was on the 10th of August
that I was escorted on board the trans
port which was to take us to England,

to give their parole who were confined
at Dartmoor, and most of the prison

fidence In myself that I was quite con

not bring myself to take anything from
the small income of my mother. On
the other hand ,lt would never do for a
man like me to be outshone by the
bourgeois society of an English country
town, or to be without the means of
showing courtesies and attentions to
those ladles whom I should attract. It
was for these reasons that I preferred
to be burled in the dreadful prison of
Dartmoor. I wish now to tell you of
my adventures in England, and of how

middle of that great desolate waste,
were herded together 7.0U0 or S.OOO men
warrleis, you understand, men of ex
perience and courage. Around there
were a double wall, and a ditch, and
wardersand soldiers, but, my faith! you
could not o;iep nun llko that up like
rabbits In a liiKch! They would escape
by twos and tens and twenties, and
then the cannon would boom, and the
search pai lies run, and we, who were
left behind, would laugh and dance und
shout "Vive ri'Jmpcreur," until the war
der would turn their muskets upon us
In their pa'slon. And then we would

You must know that the prisoners
there had their own courts of justice,
in wh!;-ll they tried their own cases,
and Inflicted 'their own punishments.
Stealing and quarreling were punished
but mot't of all treachery. When I
came there first 'there was a man,
Mounter, from Khelms, who had given

Well, tl.At night, owing to soie form
or other which had to be gono through,
they did m.i take him out from among
the other prisoners, and though he
wept and screamed, and groveled upon
the ground, they left him there among
the comrades whom he had betrayed.
Tin t nlf.'ht there was a trial with a
whispered accusation and a whispered
defense, a gagged prisoner, and a
Judge whom none could see. In the
morning whsn 'they came for their
man wich papers for his release, there
was net as much of him left as you
could put upon your thumb nail. They
were ingenious people, these prisoners,
and they had their own way of man
aging. We officers, however, lived In a se par
tie wins, and a very singular group
of people we were. They had left us
our uniforms, so that there was hardly
a corps which had served under Victor,
or Massena, or Ney, which was not
represented there, and some hJ been
there from the time when Junot was
beaten at Vlmlera. We had chasseurs
In their green tunics, and hussars, like
myself, and blue-coated dragoons, and
white-f routed lancers, and voltlgeurs,
and grenadiers, and men of the artil
lery and engineers. But the greater
part were naval officers, for the Eng
lish had had the better of us upon the
seas. I could never understand this un
til I Journeyed myself from Oporto to
Plymouth, when I lay for seven days
upon my back, and could not have
stirred had I seen the eagle of the regi
ment carried before my eyes. It was
in perfidious weather like this that Net
son took advantage of us.
I had no sooner got into Dartmoor
than I began to plan to get out again,
and you can readily believe that with
wits sharpened by twelve years of war
fare, It was not very long before I saw
You must know, In the first place,
that I had a very great advantage In
having some knowledge of the English
language. I learned it during the
months that I spent before Danzig.
from Adjutant Obriant, of the Regi
ment Irlandals, who was sprung from
the ancient kings of the country. I
was quickly able to speak It with some
facility, for I do not take long to mas
ter anything to which I set my mind.
In three months I could not only ex
press my meaning, but I could use the
Idldms of the people. It was Obriant
who taught me to say "Be Jabers," Just
as we might pay "Ma fol;" and also
"The curse of Crummle!" which means
"Ventre Dlue!" Many a time I have
see. the Pngllsh smile with pleasure
when they have heard me speak so
much like one of themselves.
We offlcera were put two in a coll,
which was very little to my taste, for
my roommate was a tall, silent man
named Beaumont, of the Flying Artil
lery, who had been taken by the Eng
lish cavalry at Astorga.
It Is seldom I mett a man of whom I
cannot make a friend, for my disposi
tion and manners are as you know
them. Hut this fellow had never a
smile for my Jests, nor an ear for my
sorrows, but would sit looking at me
with his sullen eyes, until sometimes I
thought that his two years of captivity
had driven him crazy. Ah, how I
longed that old Ilouvet, or any of my
comrades of the hussars, was there. In
stead of this mummy of a man. But
such as he was I had to make the best
of him, and it was very evident that no
escape could be made unless he were
my partner In It, for what could I pos
sibly do without his observing me? I
hinted at It, tharefore, and then by de
grees I spoke more plainly, until It
seemed to me that I had prevailed upon
him to share my lot.
I tried the walls, and I tried the floor,
and I tried the' ceiling, J ut though I
tapped and probed, they all appeared to
be very thick and solid. The door was
of iron, shutting with a spring lock,
and provided with a small grating,
through which a warder-looked twice In
every night. Within there were two
beds, two stools, two washstands
nothing more. It was enough for my
wants, for when had I had as much
during those twelve years spent In
namps? But how was I to get out?
Night after night I thought of my five
hundred hussars, and had dreadful
nightmares, In which I fancied that the
whole regiment noeded shoeing, or that
my horses were all bloated with green
fodder, or ithat they were foundered
from bogland, or that six squadrons
were clubbed In the presence of the
emperor, 'men l would awake in a
cold sweat, and set to work picking
and tapping at the walls once more;
for I kenw very' well that there tai no
difficulty which cannot be overcomes by
a ready brain and a pair of cunning
hands. - -. . , i
..There was & single window in onr
cell, which was too small to admit a
child. It was. further defended bya
thick Iron bar in the center. It waffl
not a very promising point of escape)
as you will allow, but I became more
and more convinced that our efforts
must ba directed toward It. To make
matters worse, 'it only led out into the
exercise yard, which was surrounded
by two high walls. Still, as I said to
my sullen comrade, it is time to talk
of the Vistula when you are over the
Ithlne, I got a small piece of Iron,
therefore", from the fittings of my bed,
and I set to work to loosen the plaster
at the top and the bottom of the bar.
Three hours I would work, and then
leap Into my bed upon the sound of
the warder's step. Then another itnree
hours, and then very often another
yet, for I found that Beaumont was so
slow and clumsy at it that it was on
myself only that I could rely. I pic
tured to myself my Third of Hussars
waiting Just outside that window, with
kettledrums and standards and leopard
skin shabraques all complete. Then :
would work and work like a madman,
until the Iron was crusted with my
blood, as If with rust. And so, night
by night, I loosened that stony plaster,
and hid It away In the stuffing of my
pillow, until the hour came when the
Iron shook; and then with one good
wrench it came off in my hand, and my
first Btep had been made toward free

I will tell you. I had 'gained two
things a tool and a weapon. With the
one I might loosen the stone which

flanked the window. With the other
I might defend myself when I had
scrambled through. So now I turned
my attention to that stone, and I picked
and picked with the sharpened end of
my bar until I had worked out the
mortar all round. You understand, of
course, that during the day I replaced
everything In Its position, and that the
warder was never permitted to see a
speck upon the floor. At the end of
three weeks I had separated the stone,
and had the rapture of drawing it
through, and seeing a hole left with
ten stars shining through It, where
there had been but four before. All
was ready for us now, and I replaced
the stone, smearing the edges of It
round with a little fat and soot, so as
to hide the cracks where the mortar
should have been. In three nights the
moon would be gone, and that seemed
the best time for our attempt.
(To Be Continued.)
It Is a Place Where No Alcoholic D inks
Are Sold A Non-Alcoholic llccr the
Chief Ucverage-Colled a Success So
From the New York Sun.
The home salon movement started
by Bishop Fallows, of Chicago, Is the
development of one of the fundamental
Ideas underlying the People's Institute,
of which he Is the founder and presi
dent. The People's Institute, which Is
now housed In a beautiful new struc
ture of a value estimated as $100,000,
and containing the second largest au
dience room In Chicago, stands for edu
cation, recreation, philanthropy, reli
gion and reform.
Bishop Fallows Is deeply Interested In
the temperance question. He once
made a careful study of the coffee house
system so wildly prevailing In England
and believed that, with proper modifi
cation, It could be made to meet the
requirements of American society. He
recognized the fact that the American
saloon Is ohe of the most powerful fac
tors In American social life. Light,
warmth or coolness, comfort, sociabili
ty, refreshment, were some of the at
tractions It presented. The bar, with
Its bright mirror and glitter of spark
ling glasses, was a specially pleasing
feature. Music, too, lent Its charm. He
salu, through the pulpit and the press:
'Simply eliminate the alcohol from the
saloon and you can change it into a
pctent factor for good. We must recog
nize the needs of thousands of men
which the Raloon meets. The hotel will
not take Its place; neither will the res
taurant; neither; will the business build
ing.. Neither are they the places where
men as men can congregate and have
fellowship with each other. The saloon
is the poor mnn's or the average man's
club room. For a small sum he can
have large privileges. It Is the home
less mnn's home, Is the place where the
friendless man can find friends, or pre
tended friends. It Is the place where
he can meet his fellows on terms of
equity. He can play games; he can
read new.spapers; he can write letters.
We propose to abolish the saloon. We
declaim eloquently against its evils.
What have we done? What are we
doing to supply its place? Make an
effort In some way or other to establish
places which shall have all the good
without the evil. In the saloon system."
Genesis of tho Homo Salon.
Thus he came to make the venture
of the "Home Salon." He preferred the
name "salon" as being less objection
able than the word "saloon," and he
proposed to emphasize the fact that the
evil of the saloon' was dropped with the
elimination of the extra letter. A sa
loon which was formerly kept by a
noted character In the heart of the city
was rented; Its elaborate fixtures
bought, . Its barrels emptied and
cleansed, its walls papered and painted
and decorated, and the transformation
completed. Although In a basement, it
has become a great place of resort. On
Its opening days It was thronged, by
thousands. A steady patronage of all
sorts and conditions of men seems to
have been secured. For 10 cents a sub
stantial luncheon or meal, with a hot
or cold drink, .may be secured. The
"barkeeper" Is a highly recommended
member of the Methodist Episcopal
church and of the Epworth league. The
manager is a Presbyterian. Judges,
lawyers, clergymen, professors, politi
cians, former frequenters of saloons,
business men, clerks and honorable wo
men descend the marble steps day after
day. Bishop Fallows disclaimed at the
outset the idea of charity in the enter
prise. He said:
"I believe a a business venture it will
be successful. If the coffee houses In
England . can pay a 10 per cent, and
ometlmes a 14 per cent, dividend, home
GERMS AND SICKHESS.
Microbes the Cause of All
RADAM'S MICROBE, KILLER,
a Wonderful Discovery.
A Pleasant, Simple, Inexpensive,
There Is no reason that people should be
sick. Slekness Is un unnatural state. The
taking of motllelne for the cure of disease
is us unnatural as it Is needless. Strict
adherence to nature's laws, and a knowl
edge of the real cause of disease, will
muke sickness as rure as It is disagreeable.
The germ theory of disease Is now well
known, and everywhere recognized. I'ao
pie havo reud and know abofit It in n gen
eral way, but do not thoroughly under
stand it, and are as yot unwilling to uo-
cept It in its entirety. ,
The Indisputable fact remains, however,
that all diseases ure due to germs and
their development. The germs and mi
crobes In the blood are the one and only
cause of all diseases. These diseases man
ifest themselves In different wuys In dif
ferent people, due to a variety of bodily
conditions. A person with weak lungs
may go through life without having any
trouble from them. There will be no dif
ficulty unleHS, from some cause, a gurm or
microbe finds Its wuy to the lungs. In that
cuse It will develop and multiply and con
sumption will ensue. If the weakness
were In the digestive organs, Instead of in
the lungs, the dlsciae would manifest It
self In them ami would be culled Dys
pepslu, or llrlght's Disease, or Liver Com
plaint. That is what Is meant by the derm
Theory of IMseaso.
Its correctness can readily be determined
by the nileroneope. Under a microscope
the microbe In the blood can be plainly
seen. After continued treatment with
Kudam's Microbe Killer, the microbes dis
appear entirely, tho blood Is clear und
healthful, und the dlseaso Is cured. There
Is absolutely no doubt about the eilleiency
of Huclam's Microbe Killer. It was dis
covered by William Itadam eight years
ago and has since grown Into most univer
sal use, because of Its marvelous curative
powers. Its record of successes Is such
that It cannot be Ignored. No matter how
skeptical any one may bo about It, It Is tho
height of folly to dismiss It without a trial.
It bi not composed of drugs or adds, anil
there is not the slightest possibility that It
will prove hurtful In any degree to the
most delicate organism. It Is In truth
nothing but distilled water thoroughly Im
pregnated with antiseptic gases. It is
pleasant to take, increasing the appetite,
and thoroughly purifying the blood and
system. If you ure sick It will cure you.
It makes no difference what the matter Is,
we are not at all concerned about that.
We know that every disease under the sun
is caused by the existence of microbes in
the blood, und we are quite positive that
Radum's Microbe Killer will completely
and effectually eradicate these microbes.
You may doubt this statement if you
wish to, but If you are sick and want to
get well, you are doing yourself a great In
justice if you do not muke a trlul of this
most wonderful remedy. A 50-page bonl;

Kntcrprlse Is Successful,
The enterprise is proving thus far to
be a successful business venture, and a
company named the Home Salon com
pany has Just been organized with a
capital stock of $25,000. Connected with
the home salon has been the already
famous temperance drink known as
"Bishops' Beer," "Bishops' Beverage,"
or "Bishops' Bcerette." This Is made.
the bishop says, of the best hops and
malt, brewed without fermentation by
a well-known chemist according to a
process he has found out by careful
experimenting. This beverage, which
Is wholesome and of tonic effect, Is a
veritable beer without the alcohol.
Since the announcement of the open
ing of the home salon, and the .beverage
which forms the chief feature among
Its drinks, letters have poured In upon
Bishop Fallows from every part of the
country asking for Information and re
questing samples of the "beer," or
beerette." New York, Boston, Balti
more, Philadelphia, cities in California,
Michigan, Iowa, Minnesota, Vermont,
Maine, Kansas, Nebraska, Dakota, and
other states are among the applicants.
In some of these cities home salons
have been already started. In the

Humorous descriptions hnve been
written of the bishop standing behind
the bar and the counter dispensing
drinks and refreshments. Newspaper
writers must have their Jokes, and as
Bishop Fallows said recently before tho
Sunset club, of Chicago, "This is a form
of mild martyrdom which I must cheer
fully bear." One of the rumors now In
the air is that Bishop Fallows intends
to make a co-operative enterprise of
the home Balon system In Chicago by
which thirsty and hungry thousands

owing to the excessively dry weather many millers are
of the opinion that it is already cured, and in proper
condition for milling. Washburn-Crosby Co. will take
no risks, and will allow the new wheat fully three
months to mature before grinding.
