Summed Up In Four Mottoes Eona
parte Learned at School.
In 17S4 Bonaparte, then fifteen years
old. arrived at the military school of
Paris from Brienne. being one of four
under the conduct of a minim priest.
He mounted 173 steps, carrying his
small valise, and reached, in the attic,
the barrack chamber he was to occupy.
This chamber had two beds and a
small window opening on the great
yard of the school. The young prede
cessors of Bonaparte had bescrawled
the whitewashed walls with charcoal,
and the newcomer could read in this
little cell these four inscriptions, which
we ourselves read there years ago:
An epaulet is very long to win.
The finest day in life is that of a bat
tle. Vicomte de Tinteniac.
Life is but a prolonged lie. Le Che
valier Adolphe Delmas.
The end of all is sis feet of earth.
Le Comte de la Villette.
With the trifling substitution of the
word "empire" for "epaulet" these four
sentences contain the whole destiny of
Bonaparte and formed a kind of
"Mene, Tekel, TJpbnrsin," written iu
advance upon that wall. Victor Hugo.
Dangers In Paint.
"Turpentine and benzine," says a de
partment of agriculture bulletin, "are
very iuflammable, and special precau
tions should be taken not to bring
paint containing these substances near
any light or open fire. Many pig
ments are poisonous, and the work
man should be particularly careful to
remove all paint stains from the sklu
and not under any circumstances al
low any of it to get Into his mouth.
A man should not eat in the same
clothes in which he has been painting
and before eating should not only
change his clothes, but wash all paint
stains from his skin. It is not advis
able to use turpentine or benzine in
removing paint stains from the hands,
but by oiling thoroughly with linseed
oil or in fact with any fatty oil aud
then thoroughly washing with soap
the paint may be removed, provided
it has not been allowed to dry too
thoroughly on the hands."

Jail Life In Montenegro a Cheerful
Sort of Existence.
Cettinje, the capital of Montenegro,
possesses the most remarkable prison
system in the world. The Jail pre
sents little to indicate that it is a
place of coniinemeiit. There are no
outer prison walls, and In the cells the
men about ten In each are as con
tentedly and comfortably housed as
their own personal domestic belong
ings can make them. Moreover, they
are generously fed. and cigarettes
without stint, wine occasionally and
no work at all combine to cheek any
desire to escape more effectually than
would strong walls, iron bars and au
army of warders. When V. J. Still
man was in that country in the seven
ties all the free men were away fight
ing, and he observed how when a mes
senger was wanted the olllclal took a
man out of the prison and sent him
off. having no fear that he would not
return. One such messenger was sent
to Caftaro, in Austrian territory, with
3,000 florins for the bank and duly
I came back. Another asked n Russian
at Caftaro to intercede with Prince
Nicholas for his release from prison.
"Dut you are not in prison," said the
"Oh." said the man. "I have only
come down for a load of skins for So-acd-so.
but I must go into prison
again when I get back to Cettinje."
One guard watched all the prisoners
when they sunned themselves out of
doors, and if he were called away a
prisoner would take his rifle and do
duty for the time. London Mail.

"What is gristle bread? Why. that,"
said a baker, "is a kind of bread that
is peculiar to Norway and to some
parts of Germany. In Norway it has
been made for many years, and hero
there are bakeries in which it is made
for Norwegian patrons who still pre
fer it wherever they may be.
"In making gristle bread the loaves
when first formed up from the dough
are laid ou boards and put through an
extra heated oven in which there is
baked on them au outer crust or skin,
the gristle. Then the loaves are turn
ed over and put through the oven
again, so that the gristle may be- baked
all over them. This quick oven, makes
only that outer crust ou the loaves,
which are then placed in another oven
for their final complete baking.

was made of rye flour only. Ia this

S.'- THE CUCUMBER. j&fl
Ono Way to Dross It and a Royal Way
to Crow It,
If ever an anthology of the foods of
the earth comes to be written quite au
entertaining chapter could be made out
of the cucumber. And some of the ex
tracts would provide material for much
mental exercise to decide whether they
are humorous or serious. For exam
ple, what did the Greek poet mean
when he said of a certain woman:
She was to mo
More tender than a cucumber?
Only one meaning would have been
taken from that equivocal statement
by that famous doctor who used to de
clare that the only way to dress a. cu
cumber is to cut it into very thin
slices, sprinkle it with the finest of oil,
pepper It plentifully, cover It with vin-
ar and then throw it out of the
window! On the other hand, Thack
eray tells how he "had delicate cucum
bers stuffed with forcemeat," while
Dickens refers to "salmon, lamb, peas,
innocent young potatoes, a cool salad,
sliced cucumber, a tender duckling

dently men after the heart of the Em
peror Tiberius, who was never with
out cucumbers and had frames made
upon wheels, by means of which the
growing cucumbers could be moved
about and exposed to the full heat of
the sun. while iu winter they were

FEAR OF LIGHTNING.
Is Hardly Justifiid by the Number
of Deaths It Causes.
Why are so many people, brave un
der all other circumstances, so deathly
afraid of thunder and lightning?
It is not because lightning is so dan
gerous,, for it isu t half so dangerous
as going out of the house ou an icy
morning, walking dowu the cellar
stairs or a hundred other things we
do every day without a thought of
personal harm. More people are killed
each year by falling building material,
more die from fright, than are killed
by lightning. The census bureau shows
only 109 people killed by lightning in
this entire country during a given
year, and only thirty of these people
were killed in the cities. Heat and
the sun killed 7(53 during the same i
year, 203 died from cold and freezing
and 4,303 were drowned.
Hut you will find it quite a waste of
time during a thunderstorm to try to
ease the fears of a person who is
afraid by telling him or her that the
chances of being killed by lightning
are less than two iu a million; they
will remain just as frightened for all
this mortuary knowledge. And after
the storm hrrs passed and nerves ore
steadied the woman who was so
frightened a few minutes before will
start getting supper on the gas stove,
smiling through her tears, that the
danger has all passed and wily laugh
ing if you venture the remark that
twice as many people are tilled by gas
stoves as by lightning. Country Life
