NAPOLEON'S ORIENTAL DREAMS.
Ha Longed to Follow la tha Footsteps of
Alexander the Great.
Bonaparte was a child of the Mediter
ranean. The light of its sparkling wa
ters was ever in his eyes, and the fasci
nation of its ancient civilizations was
never absent from his dreams of glory.
His proclamations ring with olassio al
lusions; his festivals were adorned with
classic ceremony. In iufancy he had
known of Genoa, the tyrant of his is
land, (is strong in the splendid commer
cial enterprises which stretched east
ward through the Levant and beyond
into the farther orient In childhood he
had fed his imagination on the histories
of Alexander the Great and his conquest
of oriental empires. In yonth he had
thought to find an open door for his am
bition when all others seemed closed by
taking service with England to share
the renown of those who were building
ru her eastern empire. Disappointed in
tins, he tnmed with the same lack of
success to Russia, already England's ri
val on the continent of Asia.
It is perfectly comprehensible that
throughout his early manhood his mind
should have occasionally reverted to the
same ideals. The conqueror of Italy and
Austria might hope to realize them.
Was he not master of the two great
maritime commonwealths which had
once shared all eastern trade between
them? England's intrusion upon the
Mediterranean basin was a never ceasing
irritation to all the Latin powers. Her
commercial prosperity and her mastery
of the seas aggravated the exasperation
of France as threatening even her equali
ty in their ancient rivalry. From the
days of the first crusade all Frenchmen
had felt that leadership in the recon
struction of Asia belonged to them by
virtue of preoccupation. Ardent repub
licans, moreover, saw France's mission
incomplete in the liberalizing of the
continent, and the department of marine
nnder the directory stamped its paper
with the motto, "Liberty of the Seas. "
Imaginative forces, the revolution
ary system and the national ambition
all combined to create ubiquitous en
thusiasm for the conquest of the Med
iterranean. To this the temperament
and training of Bonaparte were as the
spark to the tinder. It was with willing
ears that the directory heard his first
suggestions about the Venetian isles and
subsequently his plans for the capture
of Malta, which was to be followed by
a death blow to England's supremacy in
tho seizure of Egypt and the dismem
berment of Turkey. W. M. Sloane's
"Life of Napoleon" in Century.
A SPIDER FARM.
A Simp Bottler Das Becrnited the Spider.
Against Ilia Foe With Success.
A sirup bottler has improved upon the
prison lesson of Brace. He has taken
the spider into partnership in the work
iug of one of his most important depart
ments. Flies, cockroaches and other in
sects, attracted by his sweets, and en
couraged by the genial atmosphere of
his bottling room, used to interfere with
his work, get into his bottles, steal his
goods and "worry him to death." He
has recruited the spider against his foes
and vanquished them. Some 0,000 spi
ders now make their home on the ceiling
and walls of his bottling department
Their webs are everywhere, and they be
have themselves with great intelligence.
Said the bottler to an interviewer:
"These creatures know more than a
great many people. Spiders do not care
for sweet things, and never drop into
my vats or get into my bottlea I never
disturb them except to feed them occa
sioually. They appear to know my call,
and will come out and feed from my
hand, or take a fly from my finger.
"They shut themselves op during
most of the winter mouths in the little
nests yon see stuck like daubs of mad
about the ceiling. When winter comes,
I brush away the webs. They prefer to
weave new ones every spring.
"Each May they reappear ready to
unravel the silken fabric- that is stored
in their little bodies. It is just about
then that the flies have hatched their
first young. If the spiders appear earlier,
the crop of flies would soon give out
"I have been only running this spider
farm for two years, but I find my little
partners indispensabla They will not
endure in the place a single fly or insect
that is a plunderer of sweets and sir
ups. "Pittsburg Dispatch.
A Tattooed Snake,
The sailors of the gulf of Mexico and
the equatorial regions of the Atlantic
ocean amuse themselves and also tum an
occasional honest penny by capturing
both large and small snakes of the va
riety known as the lemon boa and cov
ering their bodies with tattooed letters
and designs. One of these living manu
scripts was recently exhibited at Egyp
tian hall, London, which had the whole
of the third chapter of Genesis and some
pieces from Punch tattooed upon hii
back in indelible letters of various col
ors. Thousands of these tattooed snakes
are annually disposed of at Rio do Ja
neiro. The buyers generally kill these
snakes and either skin them or preserve
the entire reptile in alcohol Such speci
mens are highly prized by both Euro
pean and North American collectors of
curiosities. St Louis Republic

THE REMARKABLE VITALITY OF
AN AGED CALIFORNIAN.
Stand Today Unscathed by Disease -How
He Conquered Rheumatism
A Story Full of Interest.
From the Eiamiuer, San Francisco, Cal.)
There is at least one happy man in
San Francisco today one man who
can enjoy, despite the fact of his being
sixty years of age and of corpulent
build, the fnll and free use of all the
powers of mind and body.
James Keenan is a prominent liquor
dealer at 250 Brannan street, and it is
he who is now lauding those who have
restored him from a bed of pain to his
former youthful activity. Mr. Keenan
had, to within a year ago, been blessed
with the enjoyment of aloinst perfect
it was a year ago that Mr. Keenan
first suffered the hand of disease to
take hold upon him. At that time he
was stricken down by an aggravated
attack of rheumatism, which robbed
him of the use of his lower limbs and
of both his hanris. For fully six weeks
he lay on his couch, a helpless victim
of the dread disease, and all the time
he Buffered intense pain in the affected
portions of his body. He could not
move himself upon his bed, and all
that he ate had to be fed to him by
those in attendance. He had about
despaired of ever gaining release from
the clutches of the frightful disease,
when one morning his attention was
drawn to an advertisement in a morn
ing paper, of a remedy for rheuma
tism. The story of what succeeded
this casual glance at a medicine adver
tisement can best be told in the words
of Mr. Keenan himself, who, when
asked for an explanation of his seem
ingly miraculous cure, gave the fol
"It seemed to me that after all the
weeks of terrible suffering that I had
endured that there could not possibly
be a relief. I had no faith in patent
medicines, and when I saw in a paper
the advertisement of Williams' Pink
Pills I was induced to try them only
in sheer desperation. I did not feel
any relief until I began taking the sec
ond box of the pille, but then the pain
began gradually to leave me, my appe
tite became better, and I could sleep
soundly throughout the night without
experiencing any of the jerking pains
that had before kept me awake. I con
tinued to take the pills and it was only
a short time until the rheumatism had
entirely left my hands, and I had so
far recovered the use of my legs as to
be able to walk about the house with
out assistance. In about two weeks
more I was entirely free from the dis
ease, but I took two more boxes of the
pills as a precaution against a return
of the rheumatism. From the time
that the last trace of the disease left
me I had not felt the least sign of its
return, and I can truthfully say that
I now enjoy the free use of my limbs
as ever I did before the rheumatism at
"I have taken the pains to recom
mend Williams' Pink Pills to a num
ber of my friends who are suffering
from rheumatism. I think I know of
no other remedy that will afford such
quick and permanent relief from rheu
matism as do Williams' Pink Pills,
and I only hope that many others may
be brought to see and feci the high cura
tive powers that the pills possess."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain, in
a condensed form, all the elements
necessary to give new life and richness
to the blood and restore shattered
nerves. They are also a specific for
troubles peculiar to females, such as
suppressions, irregularities and all
forms of weakness. They bnild np the
blood and restore the glow of health to
pale and sallow cheeks. In men they
effect a radical cure in all cases arising
from mental worry, overwork or ex
cesses of whatever nature. Pink Pills
are sold in boxes (never in loose bulk)
at 50 cents a box or six boxes for $2. 50,
and may be had of all druggists, or
direct by mail from Dr. Williams'
Medicine Company, Schenectady, N. Y.
New Treatment For Barns,
A Paris medical man of resources and
alternatives had in hand a case of severe
and extensive burning, caused by boil
ing water. So deep was the injury that
the healing process was greatly delayed.
The patient's family objected to skin
grafting, which seemed to be the only
way to accelerate the process of recov
ery, and the doctor, as an experiment,
applied the internal membrane of the
hen's egg the white film with which
everybody is familiar. The injury must
have progressed beyond the suppurative
stage and shown signs of healthy heal
ing. A freshly laid egg is broken and
the membrane immediately cnt into
narrow strips and laid carefully across
the raw surface, then antiseptic dress
ings are applied with carbolio solutions,
and the whole is covered by tin foil In
a number of cases this procedure has
been eminently satisfactory. New York

Go through a crowd of people, pre
ferably city people; examine the tired,
anxious, wasted faces ; remember your
life and the lives of the men whom yon
have known intimately; recall the vio
lent deaths, the suicides of which yon
have heard, and ask yourself the reason
of all this death, suffering and despair.
And you will see, however strange it
may appear, that tho cause of nine-tenths
of human suffering is the present life of
the world; that this suffering is nseless;
that it could be avoided, and that the
majority of men are martyrs to worldly
Recently on a rainy Sunday I crossed
the market near the tower of Sonkharev
in a street car. For a third of a mile the
car made its way through a dense crowd
that closed in again behind us. From
morning till evening these thousands of
men, most of them hungry and in rags,
jostle each other in the mud, dispute,
deceive and hate each other. The same
thing goes on in the markets of Moscow
and other cities. These men will pass
their evenings in the wine shops and
afterward will seek their holes and cor
ners. Sunday is thoir best day. Monday
they begin again their accursed exist
ence. Think of the existence of these men,
of the sitnation which they abandon
and of that which they choose. Consider
the labor to which they give themselves,
and yon will see that they are martyrs
All have left their fields, their houses,
their fathers and brothers, often their
wives and children. They have renounc
ed everything and come to the city in
order to acquire that which the world
considers necessary. All of them are
there, from the operative, the coachman
and the seamstress to the wealthy mer
chant, the office holder and the wives of
all of them, to say nothing of the tens
of thousands of unfortunates who have
lost everything and live on scraps and
brandy in the free lodging houses. Go
through this crowd; watch poor and
rich alike ; look for a man who says
that he is satisfied and believes that he
possesses what the world deems necessa
ry. You will not find one in a thousand.

Bill used to serve all his processes
himself and to save time would sign the

One day Bill had a process to serve
away up in the mountains on a semibar
barous recluse, who was sued for dam

he would deliver a few of the certifi

So, sticking both packages of papers in
the same pocket, he mounted his horse
and rode off.
Reaching the minister's, he stopped
and chatted awhile, and, after deliver

On handing it to the man the latter
opened it, and his eye grew wild as he
read instead of a marriage certificate a

justice of the peace and by the parson.
He feared some trap, so surrendered
himself to custody.
