for tho trial of a nowly-invented gun:
"On tho Dcstroyor tho lato Capt

though uow In great need of repairs. -
Our company has a capital of 1250,-"-'

tho purposo of tostlng a gun that will

hoavy nettings which tho big war
vessols havo for tho protection of
thorn selves against torpedoes, tho
ordinary projectiles aro almost use

General Sherman's Meniary. ', '
The prodigious memory of certain

It is a surprising fact that military
men, whoso minds, one would think,
would be filled with great and startling
circumstances, to tho exclusion of all
small matters, often remombor trifling
General Sherman, threo years ago,
was visiting in Philadelphia. Stand
ing one day at a window he saw a big
polloomnn, with a very long beard, go
by on tho 6treot-
The General uttered an exclama
tion, of surprise, but said nothing
moro. Noxt day ho saw tho samo
lon,;-bcardcd policeman go by, and
thin timo sent a messenger out and
asked tho man to como In.
Tho policeman presently ontorod
tho room and mado a military saluto
to tho General.
"Yos," said General Sherman, "it's
tho very man! Do you romember mo
Certainly I do, General," said tho
"And do you remember where wo
"Yes, sir. It was In California.
You woro only a Houtcnant then, and
I w as your drummer."
"That's it," sold General Sherman;
"and Instead of that beard, you had
barely a hair or two, raaybo, on your
chin. And if Jtm not mistaken, your
naino Is Hutchinson.1'
"So It is, General," said tha
pol lcemnn. V " f
Thoy entered into a conversation on
Iho old times In California and Mexico.
Tho General had not seon tho old
drummer slnco tho Mexican War, and
hal never seen him with a board, but
recognized him nt tho first glance on
thti street after forty years had passed
by Youth's Co mpanion.
