Count Hatzfeldt, who because of Bismarck's trust In him and his per- fect knowledge of French placed a prominent part in the surrender of Emperor Napoleon III. after the battle of Sedan, thus describes the arrange- ments for the surrender in a letter to his wife, which has recently been pub- lished.: "It was a solemn moment when Oen. Rellle, galloping up the side of the hill, drew up fifty paces from the king In orde- to dismount and then approached bare-headed to deliver the emperor's letter. The king asked him to wait, and withdrew to consult with Bismarck and Moltke. I took advantage of this moment to approach poor Reillo to express my sympathy with him. Bismarck then sent for me. Two chairs were placed ono on top of the other, and I wae given pen and paper. The king ana Bismarck dictated, and we drew up a draft of the answer. Afterward the king sat down on ono of the chairs; Alten held the other as a desk, anil I held the Ink bottle and dictated to the king the answer that Rellle took with him." BRONCO JACK'S PRIZE BEAUTY Splendid Animal, but a Little Particular as to Who Rode Him. STARTLED MANY GUILTY ONES Pastor's Warning Resulted In a Ratn of Umbrellas. Dr. T. L. Swift of Falmouth, Mass.. tolls tho following: A pastor In a Email New England town wns pre- feutcd with a fine umbrella by one of his parishioners. Soon afterwar he attended the weekly social hold In the church vestry. As It wns snowing slightly, he carried his umbrella, leav- ing It In the umbrella rack In the en- try, along with a numhbcr of others. After the social ho could not find a trace of his umbrella anywhere, and hiid to return home without It. The next Sunday he announced his loss from the pulpit, letting It be un- derstood that the culprit was known, urn! that "measures would be taken" If the umbrella was not left on his front porch before Monday morning. The next morning the pastor was thunderstruck to find seven umbrellas u posing on his front porch. Should any resident of Riverside drive arise sufficiently early to attend the "milkmen's matinee" he may see beautiful black horse with finely drawn lines and full red nostrils prancing up and down In front of a cart which was once white. This particular horse was, not many days ago, the property of a railroad manager we may call Wheels. Mr. Wheels is such a lover of good horses and of horseback riding that it af- fects his entire existence. During the latter part of the Summer the genial manager and other officials went to Dakota to look over the territory ahead of the new Pierre extension. As usual, Mr. Wheels had his eye open for a fancy sample of horseflesh, and Bronco Jack, of Deadwood, saw hlaa coming. One fine morning in Pierre, while the general manager was taking his morning run on the back of a livery stable horse, he saw something com- ing down the street that held his at- tention. It was as handsome .and spirited a horse as he had ever seen, Met Double Disaster. One nit-lit last week It wns raining and blowing htird. A man turned tlio Metropolo corner into Broadway. A er.f-t of wind took his hnt off. Ho inn after it and pinned It to the side- walk -Kith his umbrella, the fertile >f which punctured tlio crown. As u picked up the hat another gust of wind turned the umbrella Inside out. Te clutched to save some part of It n doinc: so the hat fell from his grasp hd the wind carried it upon a where a car wheel passed over It, the hat in two. In fifteen ho was without a hat or an imhrella. Hopeless situation at 9 o clock at night. The crowd thought great York Sun.

An ex- clamation of delight escaped the gen- eral manager a; the Westerner and his mount swept past him in as fine a single-tooting exhibition as the rail- road man had ever t-een. Bronco Jack heard the general manager's ex clamation, but permitted his horse to go some distance before he gracefully turned him without checking speed, changed his gait, and swung back at full canter to the point where Mr. Wheels was standing. When the railroad man asked the cowboy what he would take and Bronco JaeK said, "A century and a Mr. Wheels closed with him for ern beauty permitted him to saddle and mount and then went through his pretty gaits without a slip. After sev- eral successful attempts John brought the horse to the stable and Informed Mr. Wheels that be had "tamed the- which was as gentle as a kit- ten. John was soon in the saddle. Some- how or other the galvanic battery got to work again and John found himself describing a parabolic curve through space. When he alighted there was. no friendly maple tree around and his collarbone met the curbstone. The curb didn't break. A family conference was held that evening, and it was decided that it would not be safe to give the black beauty to any one but a real cowboy. Acordlngly this advertisement ap- peared in a morning daily: "Wanted, to see a cowpuncher. Call at room 429, 00 Broadway." There was a response to the adver- tisement before the day was over, and after the presentation was made the general manager said: "You may or may not be a cow- puncher, but if you're not It looks to me like certain death for you to ride that horse I'm giving you." "Don't want to ride was the laconic reply.

Eating From Habit. A prolific cause of chronic indiges- tion is eating from habit, and simply because it is meal-time and others, are eating. To eat when not hungry is to eat without relish, and food taken without relish is worse thaa wasted. Without relish the salivary glands do not act, the gastric fluids ure not freely secreted, and Vhe best of foods will not be digested. Mi'ny perfectly harmless dishes arc severely condemned for no other reason tht.n that they were eaten perfur.ctori y and without rclifch and due inbali- Hunger makes the plainest foods It causes vigorous scciotion nnd outpouring of all the (iigobtno sources of ptya- lin, pepsin, trypsin, etc., without a plentiful supply of which no food can be perfectly digested.

Tho enterpris- ing artist who arranges the windows had put in an array of blue shirts, the very latest and smartest as to color nnd cut. On these very important ar tides of men's apparel he had ar- ranged red lies, likewise the latest in masculine fashion. Of course the ex- pansive white collars that topped the shirts lent the third and final note to the Fourth of July effect, as striking as it. was York Press. A select coterie of prominent citizens wferit over to the Wheels stable to took him over. What Jim Spaulding Thought. In tho town of Suncock, N.

One day, while discussing with a neighbor the keen scent of dogs, tho neighbor said: "I have a dog thai found mo out by my smell the other day after I had gone about seven miles from home.

The Western wonder arrixed "dead- head" from Pierre in good condition. At the club, at home, in st a son and out, Mr. Wheels sang the praises of his new possession. As soon as the horse was in the stable a select coterie of prominent citizens went over to the Wheels stable to look him In due time a morning riding party was arranged. When his guests were mounted Mr. Wheels started to swing into the saddle. Ho missed by about n foot, however, as something had swung before he did, and there stood tho new horse facing him, with head down nnd meek and lowly look in his For the first time, Mr. Wheels had a foreboding. He made tip bis mind, however, to make a sure thing of it at the next attempt, and, to his sur- prise, the black beauty stood perfect- ly quiet and permitted him to vault into the saddle.

Just as ho began to wonder vaguely what Bronco Jack was doing with that there was a sudden change in the attitude of tho West- ern wonder.

Totally unpre- pared few such a denouement, Mr. Wheels shot into tho air, and when he came down ho found himself in the top of a young maple tree, from which ho was disentangled with some difficulty.
