WAR.
Borne tlmo beforo tho war a Presbyterian
clergyman from New Uarapsklro went
South, with his family, for tho benefit of
his health, Ho mirchMcd a llttlo farm In
Virginia, about tbreo miles from Washing
ton, I). 0., access to which was had by tho
way of Georgetown and tho Aqueduct
Bridge Ifo gradually failed In hoalth,
howovcr, and died, leaving a widow Mrs.
Hayes and two girls and boys. At tho
breaking out of tho war In 1801, Mrs.
Hayes and her older daughter, who was
about 1G years of age, took a docidod stand
In favor of tho Union causo. It rcqutrod
not a llttlo moral courago to do this; but
thcro was no clement of fear In tho make
up of nnymomberof tho family. At first
their homo was within tho Confoderato
lines, ami communication with Washington
was very difficult and hazardous, Mrs.
Hayes was ridiculed, and sometimes throat
cnid, but It nvallcd nothing.
After tho Confederate lines wcro drlvon
back a fow miles In 1801, fortlflcttlons
wcro constructed around Washington for
tho protection of tho National Capital,
Thoy consisted of a chain of forts arranged
In neatly a circle Tho Ilnocrossed tho Po
tomac, near Chain Urlilgo above George
town, extending thenco down to Arlington
Heights and sorao dlstanco bolow, rcetoss
ing tho river about half way botweon Lotig
Urldgo and Alexandria, and so on around
until tho clrclo wascomploto. Within this
line, and about a mllo and n-half from.l'Vt
Smith, situated on a llttlo omlnoncc, was
Mrs. Hayes' modest homo, protected netv
from tbo enemy, but suffering more,pin
haps, from her frlomls. Many regiments
wcro encamped near by ; and llttlo Ly llt
tlo her timber and fonces and stock and
crops disappeared, until thoro was sctrccJly
anything left Bavo tho homo and thclMil.
Kveu tho cook-stovo was missing one morn
ing. Very frequently at night sho was
aroused by tho beating of "tho long roll,"
tho shouting of words of command, and tho
tramping of rcgimonts as thoy swiftly
formed In lino of battlo to moot tbo ex
pected enemy. On such occasions all tho
members of tho family would hastily dross,
scenro about their porsons what valuables
they had, and patiently wait. Daring all
thceo trying years sho and hordaughtor
wcro dovoted frionds of tho Union causo,
and their willing hands woro untiring in
doing eomctblng for tho solttors.
It was a mid-summer morning In 1601,
Oat In tho fields nndovor in tho city It was
scorching hot. But In Mrs. Hayes houso,
protected as It was front tho rays of tho sun
by tho ahundnnt foliago of tho great' 'oaks
which surrounded It, the heat was not op
pressive Mrs. Hayes was In tho sitting
room reading n paper. Tbo cldor daughter
was in Washiugton. Charloy tho oldor
sou who was then near 12 years of ago,
was playing with tho dog on tho porch. It
was a peaceful, quiet plcturo of Virginia
country llfo. Suddenly thoro camo a loud,
whistling, screaming sound, followed by a
terrific explosion directly over tho houso.
''Why I" ejaculated Mrs, Hayes, as sho
started from her seat, "what a heavy clap
of" thunder, sho was about to say, bat tho
unmlstakablo humming, twanging sound:
which followed close upon tho oxploslon,
with tho falling of leaves and broken
branches from tho trees, told ber It was n
shell from some heavy gun.
"Is It possible tho robots nro making an
attack?" sho said.
Tho children now camo running In from
their play, nnd ono of them cried out, "Ob,
mnmmiU tlio lightning has struck the
tree. Mrs. uayc3 went out on tbo porcn
and IookciI and listened but nothing un
usual could bo seen or heard.
"It was a shell," said sho. "Ioxpcct a
gun at ono of tho forts went off accident
ally." "Well," laid Charley, ''when thoy load
their guns I wish thoy'd point thorn to
ward Richmond, They ought to bo ashamed
of thtmtelves."
"I don't think wo Bhall bo troubled any
more," caid tho motbor as sho returned to
tbe sitting-room, followed by tho chlldrou.
Sl.ohad but just resumed hor seat when
another cfaoll buried Hsolf in tho oartb a
few rods from tho houso and burst, throw
ing up clouds of dust nud dirt.
"What can it mean f said Mrs. Htyos,
"I know what It means, mamma," cried
Charley. "That New York rcglmont which
has Just been sent over to Fort Smith has
put up a target in our field and tho follows
are firing at it. I wish I was a general. I'd
put overy ono of them in tho guard-bouso."
Tho boy was right In hlssurmlso, and in
a few moments another mlssilo thrown
from ono of tbo huge slcgo guns with which
tho fort was armed struck a quarter ot a
mllo away and camo bounding or rico
cheting toward tho houce, striking tbo
ground at shoit intervals In its mad courso,
something as a stono when thrown violently
upon tbo water skips along tho surface.
With a shriek llko a demon It plunged
through tbo pardon, destroying ovorythlng
In lis path, filled tho air with dust, gavo
two or tlirco mora snips and scroocbes, ana
finally hurst over near tho road. Mts.
Hayos turned pale. .
"Como down into tho cellar with mo, all
of you," sho said j and thoy obovod with
alacrity. After sho had qulotod Kllza, tho
nrgro servant, who was alternately praying
to "do good Lord" and to "Missus Ho or'
to save her, sho said:
"Charloy, you must run up to Mr. Tier
son's just as fast as yon can, and nsk him to
go around to tho fort and havo tho firing
slopped. And you remain at Mr. Plerson's
until I send for you. Don't como back.
You nro not afraid to go, aro you?"
"Mo, mamma, I'm not afraid," answered
the bravo llttlo fellow as ho clasped his
mother's hand a llttlo tlghtor.
"I knew you would not be: and now as
icon ns tho next shell comes I want yoa to
go." When It camo sho kissed him, and
tuld, "Now, my bravo boy, run I"
Sho would gladly havo gono horsolt, but
ho thought It better to romalu that sho
might bo with tho other two chlldron in
cbso tho houso should be struck and burnod.
It cost her a struggle to sond her sou forth
on such n perilous errand, and hor faco was
very palo as sho klesid him. Away sped
Cbailey through tho garden, glancing with
wonder at tbo great furrows tho shells had
ploughed, climbed tho fonco and started to
run with all bis might toward Mr. Plor
ton's houto, which was half amito distant.
Ho had scaicoly loft tho garden fence, how
ovcr, when another shell camo tearing
through tbo shrubbery ho bad Just passed
and burst close to tho houso, Tho mother's
heart stood still for an instant, and thoro
was causo for it. 0 uf tbo flying frag
ments struck poor Chi Ly, and ho fell to
tbo ground with aery of "Ob, mammal"
Down In tbo collar tbe mother hoard tho
cry of her wounded boy, and In a momout
sho was kneeling by his sldo. It was a sad
sight for a mother to look upon, Tho
cruel pieco of iron with lis ragged odges had
stripped a great picco of Uesh from tho
back of his anklo upward, completely
sevcrlug tho cord and laying tiaro the bono.
Ho was lying upon bis face, and tho blood
was already staining tho green grass whoro
ho bad fallen. Speaking words of en
couragement, sho romoved hlsBbooand tho
fragment of stocking, and hastily bound
np tbo wound with strips torn from hor
clothing. In this war sho stanchod tbo
flow of blood and qulotcd bis fears, though
she could not allovlato his pain.
"Now, Chifrloy, I must go up to Mr, Plor
son's mysolf, for a shell may strlko tho
houso, and then Mary aud ltobby will bo
burned, I'll put you behind that troo, and
you will not bo in much danger."
"But you'll run, mamma, won't you?"
Aud tho tears trickled down Charley's
checks, though ho trlod vory hard to keep
them hack. Tho troo was a largo chestnut,
nnd lis generous trunk afforded a protty
amnio protection against tbo shells, two of
which had struck near by while Mrs, Hayes
was binding up thQwQnnd. Arriving at
Mr. Plerson's, sho dispatched Turn In great
hasto to tho fort, while sho with swift foot
returned to Charley, Becky nnd Borty
Plcnon, aged soventcen and olghtoon, with
truo girlish heroism, returned with her, not
withstanding tho bursting sholls. Oa tho
way thoy passed several negroes sheltered
behind stumps and stones, and Mrs, nayes
vainly begged them to follow her nnd assist
In tho removal of tho wounded boy. They
fouud Charley behind tho tree, nnd ho stld,
"Oh, mammal I'm so glad you'vo como
back." He could not walk at all, and ho
was weak from pain and loss of blood. So
his mother and tho two girls carried him lu
tMmrmn an best they could, Down tho
hill, half blinded by tbo smoko audstuuuod
by tho awful explosions, slowly movod tho
strango procession, Tboy waded tho llttlo
stream In the hollow, stopping a momout to
batho Charloy's face nnd bands, aud carrlod
their burden up tho hill to Mr. Plerson's
houso.
By this tlmo Mr, Plcrson had reached tho
fott, nnd tho tiring ceased, Tho othor chil
dren wcro cent for, and In a few momenta
tbe regimental surgeon nnd hospital stow
ard camo galloping down to oxprees their
sorrow at what had happened and to rendor
resistance. Tho surgeon's proffered ser
vices wcro most Rladly ncccptod, Whon ho
was rcsdy to oxatntno tbo wound, tho
mother said:
"Now, Charley, it will hurt you to havo
tbo wound dressed ; but It must bo done,
and you must try and bear It. It will soon
bo over."
"I'll try," said Charloy, "If you'll bor?,
mamma, aud not let my leg bo cut off."
Sho presred him to hor heart, and assured
him with loving words that thoro was no
occasion for so serious nn operation.
"Slug to me, mammal Sing to mo I"
"Why, Charloy I I don't bcllovo I
can sing now," sbo faltorod.
"You iiikjI mamma, you mtjf Pltast
slcz lo mo Just tho samo as you always do,
and I'll kcrpawful still." Aud ho reached
up and put his arms pleadingly around
her neck. Thero was a Bllonco In tho
room as tho llttlo snfTorcr porslstcd In his
strango request. Tbon tho motbor closod
her oyes and tried to sing. Her volco was
tremulous at first, but by n mighty effort
sho cxi tiled from her mind ovory thought
savo tho rcroombrauco of her love for nor
wonndtd child; and sho was soon ablo to
slug to him almost ns sweetly and softly ns
if in her own qulot homo. Tho boy's arms
gradually relaxed nnd ho lay back again
quietly upon tbo blood-stained bed, with
his head resting half upon his pillow nud
half upon his mother's lap. Ills oyes woro
clodd, and his pallid faco bad lost some
thing of tho rouudncss and fullness which
marked it in tho moruing. Tho motbor
was bending over htm with ono of his
hands in hers. On tho othor Ohio of tho
bed sat Borty Picrson fanning Charloy's
faco. At tho foot stood tho surgeon nnd
the steward. Clustered around tho room
wcro halfndo7on nolghbors looking on
Vtilb sympathetic, awe-strlckon faces.
Wbcu tho mother began to softly sins
tbo song sho knew bo loved, thero was n
solemn hush In tho room, and overy oyo
was filled with tears. Kvcn tho rough, old
surgeon, as ho cut away tho bloody band
ago, was seen to turn nway his hoad and
hastily draw his sleeves across his oyes a
number of timos; and tho stoward was
hardly ablo to distinguish bis Instruments.
Under tbo soothing effect of his mother's
volco tho boy allowed tho wound to bo
dressed nnd tho cruel stitches to bo takon.
Later In tho day ho dropped asleep and
awoko considerably refreshed. Ho was un
complaining through it nil ; nnd tho fortt
tudo with which ho boro his sufferings ex
cited the admiration of overy ono.
In tho cool of tho ovoning Charley was
taken homo In an ambulance, sent for that
purposo from tbo fort. Tho officers did
ovcrytblog In their powor to atono for tho
suffering thoy had so carelessly, but unin
tentionally, caused. Tho surgeon and his
ssslstants attended him tcudorly and care
fully until ho was well. Tho surgeon
offered to procuro his mother a ponsion, but
Mrj. Hayes declined, saying that sho was
loo tbaukful that hor boy was allvo to
think of asking aid from tbo Government.
Charley was toon ablo to walk with tho aid
of crutches, but could not dlsponso with
their use for many months.

Mr. Henry Guy Carleton, writes Kollor
In tho New York World, has glvon up his
rcsldouco lu Washington, and will hcroaftor
mako Now York his homo. I met him tho
other day and found him qulto outhustastlo
over a new domestic drama that ho Is writ
ing for ono of our best and most popular
stock actors. "I am writing this play,"
bo said, "In tho odd moments that I catch
from tho molodrama that I am finishing
for Mr. Honry Irving. I And that by
changing from ono play to anothor I can rest
myself without losing any tlmo. By this
means I am ablo to keep thrco plays on tho
stocks at once, and none of thorn intor
fero with tho others. I havo tho Irving
work to near completion that I hope to bo
nblo to tend It to him this month. Tho
emotional drama that I am writing with
Mr. Richard Wclghtman of Washington Is
progressing favorably. You know that the
heroine oCJhis play has a traco of uegro
blood In hor veins, but It Is so remoto as to
bo indiicoverable. Sho Is not "awaro of it
herself, and tho sccrot comes out after hor
marrlsgo to an aristocratic Southerner, who
has wedded her In tho belief that she Is
white. Woightman wants to havo tho
husband overlook this, nnd, tboroforo, end
tho work with bappiucssforall tho charac
ters. I think, however, that tho prejudice
against miscegenation is too great in this
country to warrant any such conclusion,
aud proposo to kill tho horoino as tho only
way out of tho difficulty. This may bo
cruel, but a drop of African blood In a
whito woman's veins Is llko a black strlpo
down a bay mule's back It can bo wlpod

Grnnt nnd III Troops.
From an anecdotal and rcmlnlscontartlclo
on Graut by General Badcau, In the May
Century, Is quotodtbo following: "His rela
tions with tbo troops woro peculiar. Ho
never made speeches to thesoldlors, and of
course never led them himself into battlo
after he assumed his high commands. But
In every battlo thoy saw him certainly
onco or twice far to tho front, ns exposod
as thoy; for thoro always scemod to como a
tlmo lu each engagement wbon ho was un
willing to ueo tho otcs or cars of anothor,
but must observe for hlmsolf in ordor to
determine. Tbo soldiers saw all this ; thoy
know, too, that wbon bo rodo around lu
camp It meant action, and tho sight of his
blue overcoat, oxactly llko tholr own, was
a signal to prepare for battlo. Thoy found
ont his character and respected his qualities.
Tbcy felt that ho meant woll, although
whon tbo tlmo camo ho spared thorn
not, for tho causo. Thus, though so
undemonstrative, he awoko a genuluo
enthusiasm. After tho battlo of tho
Wilderness ho rodo nt night along tho
road where Hancock's veterans lay, and
wbon tho men discovered it was Grant, nnd
that his faco was turned toward Rlchmoud,
thoy know lu a momout thoy woro not to
rotlro across tho Kaphlan as so often boforo;
and tboy roso In tbo darkness and ohcorod
until tho enemy thought It was a night
attack and camo out and oponod firo. When
tbo works wero carrlod at Petersburg tholr
enthusiasm was, of course, unbounded; and
whencvor thoy caught a glimpso of him lu
tbo Appomattox campaign, tbo cboors woro
vociferous. After tbo surrondor of Loo
tboy began without orders to saluto him
with cannon, hut he directed tho firing to
cense lest it should wound tho footings of
tho prisoners, who, ho Bald, wcro onco again
our oountrymon,
"This Bcntimont bo retained. Soon aftor
tbo cloeoof tho war I was presont whou a
commlttcoof Congress, headed by Charlos
Sumner, waited on him "to proposo that n
plcturo should bo painted of the surrondor
of Leo. to bo placed in tho rotunds of tho
tapitoi. Jiut no torn mom no buouiu never
consent, so far as ho was concorned, to any
plcturo being placed In tho Capitol to com
momorato a victory In which our own
countrymen were tbo losors."

OPTICAL ILLUSIONS.
Homo of tlm NlrniiRfl IMicuotneiin of
tlio Hontli.Tleil.
"Mauy pcoplo," writes a correspondent
of tho I'liilailclphia North American from
Now York, "aro deccivod by optical Illu
sions. Ou n recent morning I lookod Into
my brother's room and saw htm standing
at his drcsslng'caso. Then I romombored
that I had heard Mm go down stairs,
and I said to myself: 'This Is an optical
illusion,' Knowing that it was such, I
looked at tho figuro until It slotvly fadod
away, Let mo add that I am In good
bodily health, cheerful, aud, I bollovo,
Bound In mind. A friend who dlcdlntoly
said In her last hours, when apparently
sho was rational, that sbo saw ber doad
parents and brother In hor room. Sho
exclaimed, addressing tho friends who
stood at her bedsido: 'Thero thoy are,
light thoro. Can't you sco thorn?' I ro
pcat that, ns far ns any ono could judge,
sbo was thoroughly conscious. But wo
will pass over hor caso, for it Is not ex
ceptional, and whllo wo can not say Bho
was delirious, neither carr wo affirm posi
tively that sho had hor senses.
"But here, I think, Is an unusual form of
ptlcal Illusion, If It was an llluiion at nil.
A few days ngo n well-known business man
of New York passed nway. His widow Is
n cicar-mlndcu and cducatod lady, without
any morbid or superstitious taint in her
nature, or nnybollcflu spiritualism. Whllo
bonding over her husband shortly boforo
his death sho observed that tho expression
of bis faco was changing, and tho noxt
moment enw thero, instead, tho dead faco
of her brother. Tho two mon wero entirely
unliko In nppoaranco, ono being light and
having n blondo beard, and tho othor vory
dark. Shortly aftorward tho lady saw on
hor husband's faco tho expression of an
other deceased friend, nnd a llttlo lator
thnt of n third. Her morbid and over
wrought fancy deceived hor, somo ono
says. Could two persons bo deceived at tho
rame tlmo and In tho samo way? I ask this
becauso thrco years ago this lady and hor
sister watched besldo tho dying child of
the latter. Tho llttlo girl's faco suddonly
changed. Ono of tbo ladles saw that tho
other observed this, and said :
"'Emily, who was it?'
" 'Adelaldo,' was tho answer.
''Yes, Adelaide.'
"Tho two ladies havo told mo that they
saw unmistakably tho faco of tholr doad
cousin, n woman, shining out through tho
faco of tho dying child. I offor no expla
nation of theso phonomonn, and prosont
them only becauso to mo thoy scorn vory

year aftor year, by divers persons In sick
ness and in health, In summer's heat nnd
winter's cold, and as to whon bedding Is
remade and purified, each ono can Judgo
by bis owu cxperlonco. Compare this
with tbo uso of tho South American
hammock, which requires only n stout
blanket inside, and in wlntor a woolton
sleeping dress as well of sultablo mako,
I. c, drawers, socks nnd a looso Jacket, nil
periodically washable. Tho sanitary differ
ence becomes at onco startling to thoso who
bavo never considered tbo snbjcct boforo.
Tbe Eonth American hammock 'is mado of
tbo fibres of tho young leaves of tho Ita
palm, so woven that It yields to ovory
movement and projection of tho body In
overy direction, except lengthways, In
which direction tho weight of tho body es
tablishes Its own support, tbo samo as In
chairs with tho looso canvas backs. Ham
mocks aro vory easy to got Into and out of,
and ono cannot fall out of thorn whon
alsccp. Tboy should bo swung tho samo
dlstanco from tho ground as tho seat of a
chair. Thoy form an oxcollont seat. Sitting
down, ono draws tho back of tho hammock
up as high as ono may dcslro. Tho proper
way to get into a hammock for thero Is n
proper way Is first to sit down on It nnd
tucn tnrow tuo legs up nnd tbo bacic uowu,
wrapping yourself up In Its soft, clastic
aud nmplo folds. Tho best way to Ho Is
crossways. Tbo position can bo varied
in thrco or four ways. Tho writor bos
passed sovcral nights in such a hammock
and blanket, oxposcd to tbo damps of a
South American forest, and risen perhaps
raoro refreshed than if ho had slept in a
bed. For bedridden pcoplo their uso would
bo invaluable. Thoso who have boon con
fined to n bed or water-bed for threo or four
mouths know how fatiguing and disgust
ing they become. In many casos In hos
pitals such hammocks would boreal sani
tary appliances. Tho hammock I havo
comes from tho l'sscquibo Indians In
British Guinea. I do not know why a
similar mode of open weaving (moro llko
knitting, without tho knot) of somo ma
terial having tho mollow feeling of tbo
rush used in rush-bottomed chairs ciuld
not bo managed In this country. London
