Bow the Great Commander Went Bode

The Washington Postis authority for
$he statement that the late General

his real start. They had been classmates
at West Point. At the opening of the
civil war Pitcher, then a captain, had
been sent to Springfield, Ills., to act as
United States mustering officer.. A
stranger entered his office one day, and
Pitcher relates the following story of
"'You don't seem to remember me,
Tom,' said the visitor.
" 'No,, I doii'tt' I said, ibut I'yp seen
yon somewhere. I know.
" I'm Sam Grant,' he. answered.
"His beard had so changed him that
I did not know him, and then, you see,
I had not seen him since 1849. Ho sat
down, and I said: -Well, Sam, hqw does
it happen that you are here?'
' K camo here,1 ho said, 'to getsome--thing
to do. Can't you give me some
"'Yes, I can, said I. 'You know
how to make out muster rolls?r
" 'I should think so, 'said Grant, with
the first smile seen on his face.
" 'Well, lam allowed $100 per month
and rations for a clerk. If you like, take
that table over there and begin how.'"
A month later Pitcher walked into
hisofficeand handed his clerk an official
envelope directed to "Colonel TJ. S.
Grant" The clerk'jj. face" turned red,'
"iiTheres your chance, Sam," said
T11 never forget this, Tom, never 1"

A memorial meeting was held a few
days ago in honor of a man who had
been prominent in public work. His
former colleagues and intimate friendfe
filled the large platform. Among them
sat his widow, weeping silently undei
her crepe veil. One after another the
orators of tho occasion laid tributes of
eloqneqce at the altar of his memory.
One, more inspired and with a longer
speech than tho rest, followed the his
tory of his life from tho time of his
birth, "in tho troublous days when all'
Europe was aghast at tho sight of Na
poleon striding over the ruins of ompires
to a universal throne. '
"But the most impcTTant event of his
life," lie continued, "happened at a
later tlate. It was at a fancy ball that
he met, as he afterward said, the first
and only love of his life. Ho was there
disgnised as a highlander.
"What?" ho whispered as some one
tugged at his coat, but getting no reply,
ho went on "And the lady of his
choice was dressed" here there was an

Corrosion of Metals by Water.
The peculiar statement is made by
M. Bauchier in Ie Revue Maritimeet
Coloniale that corrosion of metals by
water may be caused by the action of
micro-organisms present in particular
harbors, but absent in the ocean. It ap
pears that the . fact, as ascertained, of
pure, aluminium plates immersed in
Norfolk Roads being badly corroded at
the end of three months, while in
Franco commercial aluminium subject
ed to the same test was practically un
touched, and two plates attached to the
bottom of a ship wore uninjured after a
voyage around the world, led him to in
vestigate thq sea water from different1
places, with the following results, as
stated : If introduced into boilers, the
Mediterranean water, which contains
more salt than tho Atlantic water,
causes more damage ; so does the water
taken from estuaries and near the shore,
whioh contains a larger proportion of
nitrates from f ermentingl organic mat
ter. The destructive power of the shore
water is much reduced, however,- if ifri
bo sterilized by means of boiling.
Iard to Catch the Expression.
A young woman of St Joseph, Mo.,
was walking down tho principal street ,
a few days ago, when, seeing a young
man in the passing throng, she went up
to him, threw her arms around his neck
and kissed him. Then sho disengaged
herself and ran, blushing, away, while
tho young man looked at her in pleased
amazement She afterward explained
that the young man was an utter stran
ger, but "when my eyes met his, and ho
looked so good, so noble and so true, I
wanted to kiss him, and I did. " It is
scarcely necessary to say that every
young man in St Joseph is anxiously
studying how to look good and noble
aud true when he goes down the street
on the dry goods store side. Buffalo
