Description:
Like the evening star, slowly mounting its zenith at the evening twilight, rose Napoleon's fortune, for awhile it set, sparkled and flashed, then slowly it began to pale behind the ominous clouds which long had been gathering on the horizon. The star of his greatness began its being when he married the widow of M. Beauharnais and turned back the horoscope of time so as to escape the laughter of his friends.
