A d John Schtunp, whilfl ti mpulling slumps on the farm, took shelter from a raia-storm under a partially-raised stump, andwhile there, by some unknown means, the chaina failed, allowipg the stump to f.-iil on the unfortunate man. whnse back was broken in tvv-o places and his intestinos foi-eeil tbrongh his abdomen. The man was stil] alive, but no hopeswere entertained of his reeovery. The reason why expresa search has been made in Zululahd for the Prince Imperial' 3 watch is that, attaohed to the chain, hia Higlmess wore that relie (a fragment of the truc cross) which belongect' to Charlemagne, carne into the hands of the first Napoleon, and was ahvays worn by the late Emperor, wlio regarded itas a species of talisman.
