One of the most prominent professors of Berlin University, renowned for his philological lore, has gone mad on a strange delusion that he has been robbed by a French hatter, at whose house he lodges, of certain valuable manuscripts, of which Napoleon III, has availed himself for the forthcoming "Life of C├Žsar." He awaits the issue of that work to begin a lawsuit against the French Emperor.

There has been a snow storm in the south of France, such as has not been known before in the memory of man. Several lives were lost by it.
