Bonaparte was passing along the dreadful road across the
Echelles de Savoie, with his engineer, when he stopped, and pointing to the

and to form a more safe and commodious route beneath it?" "It is

_possible_, certainly, sire," replied his scientific companion, "but"--"No

buts;--let it be done, and immediately," replied the Emperor.
