Extract from an address
Robert G. Ingersoll:
"A little while ago I stood by the
grave of the old Napoleon a mag
nificent tomb of gilt and gold, fit al
most for a dead diety and gazed up
on the sarcophagus of black Egyptian
marble, where rest at least the ashes
of that restless man. I leaned over
the balustrade and thought about the
career of the greatest soldior of the

of the Seine, contemplating suicide.
I saw him at Toulon I saw him
putting down the mob in the streets
of Paris I saw him at the head of the
army in Italy I saw him crossing the
bridge of Lcdi with the tri-color in
his hand I saw him in Egypt in the
shadow of the Pyramids I saw him
conquer the Alps and mingle the
eagles of . France with the eagles of
the crags. I saw him at Marengo at
Ului and Austerlitz. I saw him in
Russia, where the infantry of the
snow and the t"(Vrtlry ox the wild blast
scattered his legiflft'g like Winter's
withered leaves. I saw liirn at Leipaio
in defeat and disaster driven bv a.
million baynots back onto Paris
clutched like a wild beast banished
to Elba. I saw him escape and tetke
an empire by the force of his geins.
I saw him upon the frightful fMd
of Waterloo, Where Chance and Fate
combined to wrk the fortunes of
their former king. AM I saw him at
St. Helena, with hl hands crossed
behind Irim, gazing out flpm the sad
and solemfl sea.

me. I would rather havo been that
man and gone down to the toungeless
silence of the dreamless dust than

of force and murder. "
