Bismarck   aad   Urant.
Sidney Whitman in his "Personal
lsi-niiulseences of Prince Bismarck"
"Bismarck's intimate friendship with
Motley, the historian, Is well knowu,
Uc wns slso particularly attached to
(ioorge Bancroft, so that when It became a question of Bancroft being recalled from his post of United States
minister ��t Berlin Bismarck wrote specially to his friend Motley and begged
hlm to intercede with the president to
allow Bancroft to rem. lu, and he did
renin in.
"Bismarck told me that when Oeneral Grant came to Berlin he accompanied liim te see one of tlie reviews at
Ilie Tompollinfet fold, ('runt was not
well that day, und they bad to drive
out in a closed carriage. Grant looked
downcast and told Bismarck that It
worried him to think that he wus to
meet the Prussian soldiers sitting cuddled up in a carriage like uny ordinary
civilian, 'Never you mind that, Qenernl
.Jraut,' Blsniarck said. 'You may sit
here hidden from view, but our sol
diers are well aware what soli 01 fighting man ls in this closed carriage.' "

Impeacbable for stability, but It may
Ije very bad when lt comes to a mutter
I of drainage, whether it be for tlie dis-
