Nothing could bo moro magnificent
than tho nppenr.incc of everything np
'pertnlnlng to the court on nil public
occiuslonB. Tho balls, ospccltilly, In the
'various splendid rooms, particularly In
tho lmmenso "S lie des Marechaux,"
wero a sight not to bo forgotten, from
tho first entrance, atad ascent by tho
great staircase, adorned with flowen
and fihrubs', whero on each Btop stood
two of the "Cent-gardes" (tho emper
or's body-guard) as motionless aa stat
'uea. Nothing wbb moro remarkable
than tho drill which en bled thoso men
on nir'occaslons when on duly at the
palaco to remain without 'moving n
muscle. Tho fatlguo of this Immoblll-
ty Is said to bo so great that It could
not bo endured beyond a certain tlmo;
but it was'so eompleto that to come
suddenly on ono of these guards in
tho palaco wrs positively sturtllng. It
'waB senrcoly possible to believe that
. they wero nllvo. They were all ro-
mrtrkably fine moiisub-olnccrts chosen
out of various regiments, and when the
'war came they proved that they were
not merely parado soldiers, for thoy flg
urod among the best and bravest
troops. Ono d y tho llttlo prince, when
a young child, In tho hupo of making
;tho sentinel move, poured a whole bag
ot Bwects Into his boot, but without
'eliciting any sign of llfo from tho mlll
'tary statuo before him. This play of
the child being mentioned' In tho pres-
ouoo of Col. Verly, who commanded
tho regiment, ho declared that nothing
'could make ono of his men tuovo when
on duty. Tho emprcsn would not bo
Mlove this assertion, and finally laid a
''wager that she would contrive to m ko
ono of tho guards move. Col. Verly
having accepted the wager, the em
press went with him Into the neighbor
ing gallery, where they walked back
ward1 and forward before tho sentinel,
tile 'empress trying by every means to
attract his attention. Tho guard Htood
as If turned Into stono. Col. Verly
smiled. The ompresB, with her char
acteristic Impotuoslty, then went
straight to the soldier, and, according
'to familiar speech, "boxed his cars'
.Not a musclo moved. The empress
then acknowledged that Col. Verly had
'won tho day, and sont a handsome com
pensation to the Boldler, who proudly
,. refused It, Baying that ho was sufli
'clcntly compensated by having had his
'sovereign July's hand on his cheek!
