between the two during the remainder
of the meal. Barras watched, with
growing annoyance, the indifference of
Napoleon, and felt his plans melting
into thin air as he saw the evident de
light with which the widow turned
from him to the more entertaining
companion she had fouud elsewhere.
Supper over, Barras drew Napoleon
aside and spoke forcibly to him of the
foolish way in which he was throwing
away his chances. uYou know," said
he, that money is everything to you;
here are one million francs, and you
will not stretch out your hands to take
them; a most attractive woman, and
you will not show her the smallest
gallantry. Mile. Montansier has come
here this evening prepared to hear a
declaration from you. Strike while
the iron is hot, and win the wealth
that you cannot do without at one
"The woman is old enough to be my
grandmother," said Napoleon, who was
then twenty-five years old; "but that is
no matter, for to me all women are
alike. Money is what I want; and, if
I cannot get it without a wife, I must
take the two together. I am no coiner
of pretty speeches, but before the even
ing is over, I .vill say to her: "Ma-
damoiselle, are you willing to accept
me as your husband?' More than that
I cannot do."
"The very kind of proposal that any
woman would expect from a blunt sol
dier," replied Barrns. Say that, and 1
desire no more. You arc to be envied;

Napoleon turned away in a gesture
of impatience; but a halt hour later.
Barras noticed, to his joy, that the two
were alone together in a n-cess. I'res

her fan. uFake away that dreadful

"he has bored me nearly to death, and

Important to State Pensioners.
BULKS AND REGULATIONS OF THE STATE
BOARD OF PEN8ION8.
The following rules and regulations
have been adopted by the State board
of pensions for the guidance of appli
cants for pensions and county boards
of pensions: .
1. That the applicant must allege
and prove that he, or she, has been for
twelve months, immediately preceding
his or her application, a bona fide resi
dent of North Carolina.
2. That the soldier or sailor was en
listed and served in that capacity, either
in the service of the State of North
Carolina or in that of some other State
iu the Confederacy, or in the Confed
erate State service.
3. The time, place and circumstanc
es in which the wound was received,
and the nature and character of the
wound, particularly its effect in dis
abling the applicant for manual labor,
must be clearly set forth. Applicants
are required to make their proofs as full
and conclusive as possible on these
points and accompany the same with
the affidavits of one or more credible
witnesses, and the certificates of well
known medical practitioners, as upon
these proofs will depend the amount of
the pension under the classification pro
vided in the statute.
4. When the widow of a soldier or
sailor is the applicant, in addition to the
requirements mentioned iu the preced
ing rules, satisfactory proof will be re
quired, (1) that the death occurred
during the war; (2) that the husband
was in the discharge of his duty as a
soldier or sailor at the time of the re-
: ceuit of the wound or contracting of
the disease; (-) that the deatn was ttie

time it has been thought tnat mere
w.i something rotten about the man
agement of Ludlow street jail in New
York city, where such fastidious crimi
nals as fves and Classen, railroad and
bank wreckers are toutiued. Last week
the New York Herald caused one of
its trusted reporters to be arrested on a
charge of fraud. He was taken iu tow
by a'deputy sheriff aud carried to the
sheriffs office where he meekly asked
the deputy not to take him to jail un
hi he could see his menus
the record as having resigned than as
being removed, and forthwith they
were removed. Indeed, during Mr.
Harrison's administration the Civil
Service Law has been evaded in a very
shameful way. One of the latest de
velopment has been brought out by
the Washington Post. Shidy, a sub
ordinate in the Milwaukee postoftice,
was also a local officer of the Civil
Service Commission, aud atter tne
postmaster had appointed some person
to office, Shidy would doctor the list
of eligibles, so as to make it appear
tnat the appointments were regular
confessed the crime and the Com
mission had him appointed to office at
Washington, n the theory that they
ought to take care ef those who
"preaehed." The whole- matter has
now come out, and shows how much
ratten nesa there is in the State of Den
mark. The largest part of the administra
tion has been in connection with ap
pointments to office, and the appoint-
meats have for tne most part
the drains near the brook, but without
success, until Marcus Orenzo, the chief
lion-tamer of the menagerie heard tho
lion roar. He traced the sound with
difficulty from the man-hole at the
junction of the road to the outlet in
the brook, where the lion had hrst en
tered, and he at nee decided to crawl
through the drain in pursuit , he
A transfer cage was obtained and taken
to the brook, the drop-door was lifted
and the mouth of the cage placed,
against the opening the drain.
By this time Orenzo had changed
his clothes for the hunt,-and, armed
with a revolver and accompanied by a
boar-houndhe descendedjnlo the sew
er Twice in succession did the daring
explorer's pistol shots ring out, and
tne animals answering roar snoweu

Crawling" along he caught sight of
the lion, which at first turned at hay,
but after encountering another dis
charge of the revolver, fled toward the.
cage at the other end of the sewer
The lion tamer crawled after, and the
faithful boar hound kept close to
hand. When the mouth of the cage
come in view the dog was sent to the
fr5nt and gave at the word of eot
mand a deafening bark. At this the
lion bounded up into the trap set for

carted away to the menagerie.
At the South the administration has
pursued such a course as to stir up
strife and engender race hostility and
sectional animosity. The general
ouiet. which hail prevailed from the
Potomac to the Rio Grande for eight
years, was early disturbed. The ad
ministration quickly allied itself with
