bill of fare printed in French. Being
unfamiliar with the language, he or
dered five articles on the bill which
had an aggregate value of 80 cents.
When the order was delivered he
found that he had potatoes cooked in

He has introduced a bill in the Leg

The many current articles on Na
poleon the First attract renewed at
ttention to the great Emperor. He
has been viewed from every stand
point except an unbiased and impar
tial one. Possibly the time has come
when that can be done. His phe
nomenal intelectual capacity is admit
ted on all hands. Small attention
has been directed, however, to his
physical developement, which alone
enabled him to bear the fatigues and
labors necessary to such a career.
Indeed it was no less wonderful than
his mental characreristics. He had a
"frame of adamant" as well as "a soul
of fire." His labors would have worn
out physically half a dozen ordinary
men. He was insensible to heat or
cold or fitigue.
Attention has been called to the
great capacity ol his skull, but anoth
er physiological fact, which probably
had a most important bearing on his
succcess, has passed almost unnoted.
His normal puke, or heart beat, was j ' , Cmvvis, Register of Deed ,

cooly under the pressure ol the most
trying circumstances. It was noted
that he rarely perspired, and, toiling
along under the summer's sun
through the desert in the Egyp
tian campaign, not a drop of per
spiration was .feen on his brow.
Physiologists may, perhaps be able
to determine other effects upon his
physical and mental activity from this
abnormal slowness of circulation. His
chest measurement was as phenome
nal as that ol his skull. Both were
extraordinary tor a man ol his height
He wore a No. 8 hat and his scalp
was so tender that the hat had to al

ently stated as 5 feet 3 inches and 5
feet 6 inches. The tiuth is, both
are correct, for 5 feet 3 inches old
French measurement is 5 feet 6 inch
es English measurment. A forgetful
ness of this fact has caused the appar
rent conflict of statement.
His marvellous good health was an
indispensible lactor in his success. It
was noted by his teachers at school. It
did not fail him once in his long and j m. Prayer meeting every Thursd.u
