All in the valley of
Rode the Six Hun-
It is true that at
Balaklava, where the daring deed celebrat
ed in the poem took place, occurred the
ono great cavalry fight of the Crimean
war. But it is also true that, as results
are counted in war, the most brilliant
achievement on that field was the charge
Df the Heavy Cavalry Brigade of English
horse before the Light Cavalry Brigade
went in. Tho heavies were 300 strong and
Ihey rode full tilt against ten times their
number, or 3,000 advancing Russian cav
ilry, and put them to rout. This exploit
figures largely, as it should, in all sober
histories of tho Crimean war. So also does
the oharge of tho Light Brigade, but for a
wholly different reason. The former af
fected campaign results; the latter was
ono of those unfortunate affairs that lead
to endless controversies.
The first turned the tide of battle and
perpetuated the war won honors of Eng
land's chivalry; tho second was a tragedy
which froze the battle ardor of an army of
beholders and melted their gallant hearts
to tears. Tho one was an act of war justl y
awarded historic fame; tho other was a
bloody episodo that challenges attention
and wins historic notoriety. Nevertheless
tho subject of Tennyson's grand poem was
worthy of the master hand that treated it.
And that poem all so marvelous, all so
fanciful, all so thrilling is only a plain
statement of the truth. The Six Hundred
did rido half a league along a valley of
death. There had been a blunder and
every man knew it, yet rode boldly on.
There wero cannon to the right, to the left
and in front of them, and the mouth of
hell did gape before them; still they rodo
on. They did plunge into battle smoke,
break Cossack and Russian line, while all
the world wondered, for around that val
ley, on five miles of sloping hillside, stood
tho allied armies and the opposing host,
looking down on tho grandest spectacle
that ever thrilled so great an audience on
the field of Mars.
It is a poem of Bimple truth mounting to
tho sublimcst pathos, and for that reason
it wears its way from ono generation to an-
uiuur ui ine.cingii3apea&jugr.ice, ana tne
doings of the Six Hundred find a lodg
ment beside our nursery tale?, the ale
house stories and camp fire narratives.
And it never grows stale, but like "Home,
Sweet Home" nnd "Last Rose of Summer"
is always welcome. The shy and nervous
school boy may stammer over and manglo
It and win applause, while tho orator may
rest his laurels on it to closo a peroration.
Thestarof tragedy who has won enduring
fame in sounding Shakespeare's noble
numbers may scoro a new triumph and
conquor obdurate hearts by stooping to a
recitation with tho Six Hundred for his
theme, and even the pert soubrette, when
caught in grave company and impelled to
do something solemn just for looks, may
render the old, old story and win a recep
tion which will still her pit-a-pat going
heart and placo hor well at ease. Yes, so
powerful is the charm that should a man
condemned for crimo in any land where
English is spoken prove that he rodo with
the Six Hundred Tennysou wrote about
the fact would win a speedy pardon. And
on its merits it i3 a marvelous recital, this
poem. When was ever wed to strong and
homely Saxon words sublimer thoughts
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why.
Theirs but to do and die;
Into tho valley of death
Bode the Six Hundred.
What then was the charge which this
is all about? In order to make plain tho
situation I adopt a simple dingram from
Kinglakc's "History of the Crimea.'' Tho
valley between the forefinger and tho little
finger runs noarly cast and west. The ex
tended fingers represent heights; the north
ern a range of hills occupied by Russian
troops in heavy force, the southern a suc
cession of knolls crowned with redoubts
planted by tho allies and just wrenched
from them by a charge of Russian cavalry,
and then manned with Russian artillery
men and supports. Well toward the wct
end of tho valley the Russian horse ad
vancing from tho east had been met by
Gen. Scarlett's 300 heavies and driven
back along tho valley, where the
close fingers represent them, aud there
rallied to re-form behind a twelve gun bat
tery. At the extreme west end of the val
ley were the Chorsoucse mountains, where
tho allied armies rested; so the scene of
combat was looked down upon from three
elevated positions swarming with armed
men, among them the chiefs of the oppos
ing camps and their colleagues, and other
distinguished spectators. Below the Cher
sonese, iu tho valley and well hidden from
view of the plain, was n division of En
glish cavalry under Lord Lucan, the Heavy
Brigade of Gen. Scarlett, and the Light
Brigade of Lord Cardigan.
The battlo opened by a rapid advance at
daylight of Russian cavalry along the
valley where the allied redoubts manned
by Turks invited attack. A correspond
ing movement of all arms on the heights
north of tho valley placed the Russians in
strong force on and around the plains of
Balaklava. Gen. Scarlett's bold charge
forced back tho Russian cavalry center
and left the troops in the captured redoubts

unsupported. Lord Raglan, the English
commander, standing on the Chersonese
heights, overlooking the neld, very prompt
ly sent orders, on beholding the defeat of
the Russian horse aud exposure of the line
of redoubts, to move the Light Brigade
forward aud rstake the captured guns,
which the enemy were removing. The
order was convened to Lord Cardizan by

w. t. bishop &
ror oartie, one conaexaned by the red tape
system of the English service to routine
staff duty. He bora the fourth order of
the day to Lord Lucan and that officer,
smarting under the humiliation of a re
peated prodding, refused to understand
the meaning of his chief. The order was
forLucan's cavalry to advance and pre
vent tho enemy from removing the guns
of the captured redoubts on the heights
south of the valley. Lord Lucan con
demned the order and aroused Nolan to
somewhat pithy, not to say indignant, re
sponses. He was finally led to say, "Lord
Raglan's orders are that the cavalry should
"Attack, sirl Attack what? What guns,
Bir?" demanded the irate lord.
Nolan pointed, as Lucan insisted, toward
the left hand corner of the valley, where
lay the discomfited Russian squadrons be
hind a frowning battery of twelve twelve
pounders, and said: "There, my lord, is
your enemy; there are your guns."
Lord Lucan, accompanied by Nolan, then
went to Lord Cardigan, who was at the
head of his Light Brigade, facing down
the valley toward those menacing twelve
pounders. Handing to him Lord Rag
lan's written order to advance and save
the guns in tho captured redoubts, ho ob
served to Cardigan that the advance be
made steadily with his men "well in hand."
Cardigan remonstrated.Baying: "Certainly,
sir; but allow me to point out to you that
tho Russians have a battery in the valley
in our front and riflemen on each flank."
Shrugging his shoulders, Lucan said that
there was "no choice but toobey." Turning
quietly to his people the chief of the Light
Brigade said: ''The brigade will advance."
Taking the estimate of Cardigan's mili
tary character as given by the English his
torian, Kinglake, whoso narrative is here
followed, tho tragedy that befell the Light
Brigade was to have been expected from
tho result of this interview between tho
division general and tho brigadier. Says
Kinglako of Cardigan: "If ordered to hold
a position ho might think himself planted
f as fast as a sentry at the gate of a palace.
If ordered to advance down a valley with
out being told where to halt he might
proudly abstain from supplying the omis
sion, and lead his brigade to destruction."
And that is precisely what he did do. His
column consisted of the Thirteenth Light
Dragoons nnd the Seventeenth Lancers in
the first lino, tho Eleventh Hussars in the
second and the Fourth Light Dragoons and
Eighth Hussars in the third. The stolid
leader rode about five horses' lengtis in
front of the center, and the whole moved
off at a trot.
Promptly Capt. Nolan, who was near
the head of the brigade, obliqued to tho
right toward the captured guns, and while
ho was waving his sword and shouting to
have tho command follow him his heart
was torn out by a shell. Cardigan saw his
gestures and heard his shouts and his dy
ing yell, but he only rode silently on, and
the Six Hundred followed him. As soon
as the Russians saw this persistent ad
vance toward their twelve gun battery
j they opened from tho heights on both
sides of tho valley upon the devoted col
umn, so orueny was tne riae 01 tno n.n

DEATH OF THE GUIDE.
confusion was but momentary and the
mass closed up and moved on like a river
current after deflection by a sunken rock.
Cardigan looked neither right nor left, but,
selecting a gun near tho center of tho bat
tery in his front for a guide, ho galloped
toward it, not halting even when, as he
was within three horses' length, it opened
fire. His horse shied from tho flame and
he plunged through tho battery into the
Russian cavalry, and was soon in a hnnd
to hand encounter with a body of Cossacks
who had been ordered to secure him.
Some of the first line attacked the artil
lerymen and others rodo through at the
Cossacks. Tho succeeding lines adopted
the .same tactics, and the artillerymen were
prevented from removing the guns, while
tho Russian cavalry was eventually put to
rout. The brigade lost its formation and
fought on in two wings, the center having
been crushed, until tho Russian lancers
and Cossacks were flying before them. The
bmoke of bnttle separated the wings of the
brigade from sight of each other, and after
losing heavily, finding no supports coming
forward, a retrwit was made, partially cov
ered by attacks by tho French and English
cavalry upon the Russians north of the
valley. Tho brigade lost 1 13 killed and 134
wounded out of G73 effective before the
fight. The proportion of killed to wound
ed shows tho desperation of tho conflict.
There were 475 horses killed and 42 wound
ed. Only 15 unwounded men fell into the
hand3 of the Russians, and these because
their horses had been disabled.
When the remnant came together in tho
cavalry camp Lord Cardigan, who himself
showed a bleeding wound, said, "Men, it is
a mad brained trick, but it is no fault of
Some of the men answered: "2ievermind,
my lord: we are ready to go in again."
"No, no, men; you have done enough!"
added the leader.
This wonderful combat from onset to re
treat lasted twenty minutes. It was of this
that Gen. Bosquet made the oft repeated
remark, "It is splendid, but it is not war."
After having set his cavalry in motion
toward the twelve gun battery with the
Light Brigade at the head, Lord Lucan had
formed the Heavy Brigade under Gen.
Scarlett to follow in support. But Cardi
gan's rapid pace put such distance between
the two commands, aud the Russian cross
fire on the Licht Brigade played such havoc
with its ranks, that the cavalry commander
exclaimed wofully: "They have sacrificed
the Light Brigade; they shall not tho Heavy
if I can help it," and put it aoout in retreat.
So ended that immortal charge: a move
ment without reason or excuse, and leav
ing no compensation except the example to
the world of the mighty power of martial
discipline Cardigan, impetuous, mis
guided, stubborn Cardigan, rode on and thi
faithful Six Hundred rode after him be

Mummies and Mohammedans.
One night I visited the Metropolitan
Mnseum of Art for the purpose of exam
ining some of the antiques exhibited
there, and I took a look at the mummied
cats, in which my little son, who was
with me, is especially interested. Very
solemn and ghastly are the swathed and
silent tabbies, who perhaps gamboled
around the feet of Moses and of Pha
raoh's daughter, and it struck me in
looking at them that the Egyptians of
3,000 years ago were a little ahead of the
New York of today in their devotion to
birds and quadrupeds.
Something of this veneration for the
brute creation has been transmitted to
the Mohammedan of the east, who per
mits neither cats nor dogs to be slain,
but provides meals and quarters for
them. A learned pundit of that persua
sion once expressed to the late 6. S. Cox,
when minister to Turkey, his surprise
that a Society for the Prevention of Cru
elty to Animals should be needed in a
Christian country. Our brilliant "Sun
sot" wa8 not usually at a loss for words
either to conceal or express an idea, but
on this occasion he confessed that he
was routed by the unspeakable Turk,
and had to tako refuge in the assertion
that this was the work of the Blavatsky
sect of Buddhists. It is just possible
that the gentle Turk believed him, but
Mr. Cox was always of the opinion that
he did not. New York Letter,
