There I a story told of an old veteran
of th First Napoleon who lived until
1M6 In the Ftench village of Bavary and
who had L .wooden leg. a wooden arm. a
glass y, a silver palate, a complete
set of false teeth and a silver plate on
tbe top of his head, and. yet died peace
fully in hi bed. Compared, wit such
men th proverbial nine-lived cat Js no
where. A on reads the stories of great
war ot th past th manner in which
famous general hav played -touch-and-go
with death 1 little hort of miracu
lous. Th wonderful escapes of Napoleon
and Wellington were proverbial. Though
bullet grased thera and riddled their
clothes, and both' had horse abut under
them.' yet both passed through a life of
battia and danger with two or three
light wounda apio.
Marshal Ney,' the bravest ot th brave,
wa continuously fighting for twenty
eight year, yet h escaped with; only a
few slight wounds to meet a traitor's
doom at th hand ot th bourbon king.
He headed counties charge, had flv
horse sbot under him in a slngla battle,
eagerly courted death warn leading the
Old Guard at Waterloo, and yt wa
never er!ou8ly wounded. . . ' "
