IN THE WORLD'S HISTORY,
AND WHY THEY .WERE
GREAT. HANNIBAL, THE MASTER OF |
STRATEGY IN WAR - A
BRAVE ANJf RELIABLE
> ... I. HANNIBAL.
-The Romans, from whom alone
we have any aconnts of the Punic
wars, state that Hannibal was
cruel, perfidious, impious, avari
cious, and that he wasja barbarian
But, remember, they were writing*
j of a man who had humbled their
country into the very dust.
Hannibal was not cruel, except
as war is cruel. Two centuries
later, when Rome was highly
civilizod* Caesar without pity
destroyed 230,000 defenceless men,
women, and children in one day.
Hannibal never did such an act.
Yet history does not denounce
Cosar as cruel.
The Romans cejtted Hannibal
perfidious because he was a master
of stratag?me in war, and would
. craftily lead them into a bad posi
tion before he attacked them.
This.is"7u*st what every general
tries to do to-day, and he has
learned how tb do it largely from
After a while, the Romans
learned the trick themselves.
Hannibal did not believe in the
Roman gods. Hence the Romans
called him impious. - But Hanni
bal observed his own religious
duties faithfully. Both Romans
and Carthaginians were heathens
according to our view.
Hannibal was avaricious, but
every gold piece he could save
he spent for weapons to fight the
. Romans, or to feed his army. We
should not call a man avaricious
who accumulated a great fortune
and then gave it to his country
during a war.
As to Hannibal being a barba
rian, he had been given the best of
/Greek educations, was a man of
'learningand cultivation, and an
, author of note. The Roman
generals had, none of them, any
part of Hannibal's knowledge and
culture. Rome was not then a city
of letters ; it was only the capital
of a rugged, common-sense people,
wjiose good institutions.deserved
to, and! did, enable it to finally
conquer the world.
. Hannibal's brave and reliable
character was known to his army.
Under him the soldiers could dare
and accomplish anything* His
body could not be tired ; his ardor
could not be damped. He did not
seek to shelter himself. He slept
beside his men, wrapped in his
cloak.. He had no weaknesses,
vices, cared nothing for display
except in horses and weapons.
Hannibal1 always had to
fight armies larger and better
drilled than his own, under
generals of good ability. Yet
the great Carthaginian for
half a generation kept Rome on
the brink of ruin. For sixteen
years he could not be driven out
of Italy.. Only by sending an
army into Africa ito attack his
native city, so that he would be
called home, could they drive him
from their soil.
The remembrance of how Alex
ander accomplished his great deeds
had almost died out. No one lived
except Hannibal capable of under
standing his method. But the
Carthaginian general had studied
the tactics of that great conquerer.
JEIis^ own methods were equally
bold, secret, crafty.
The Romans had been in the
habit of marching' out to battle,
meeting the enemy on an open
plain, and defeating him by hard
knocks alone. When Hannibal
reached. Italy, he had but 20,000
men, while the Romans could raise
700,000; He was not afraid of hard
knocks, but he saw he must deliver
his blows as Alexander would.
Mark what he did.
At the Trebia, he so managed as
to lure the Romans to ford the river
on a cold, bleak, snowy day, before
they had breakfasted, and met
them with his men, well fed and
dry. He had, moreover, hidden a
chosen: force in ambush to fall on
their flank and rear.
AtLakeTrasimene, he lured the
Homans into a defile, around which
he had posted his men so as to fall
on them suddenly and on all sides
while they were on the march.
At Cannae, where they had twice
his strength, he so planned as to
crowd the Romans into a . space
where they could' not use their
weapons ; then he attacked them in
the flank with his foot and in the
rear with his horse.
In each battle he absolutely de
stroyed the entire Roman army.
There was no end to his inven
tive spirit in dealing with his
enemy, and finally the Romans
made up their minds that they
must not fight him, but try to cut
off his "food supply, harass him
on the march, and by small attacks.
This proved the better plan. They
never after came to battle unless
they believed they had a decided
advantage. And we know how they
got him out of Italy at last.
There is one simple way to dis
cover the great captain. See who
it is who determines the maneu
vers of both sides. If yon ever
watch a crowd of people uncertain
what to ?io in an emergency, yon
will notice that after a moment
one man comes to the front, who,
by a word or two, or a silent act;-by |
a mere look, often-heads the as
sembly, while all the rest follow.
That man is a born leader.
Now, watch the theatre of a war,
where immense armies, led by the
ablest men, are contending for the
mastery. You will see a general on
one or the other side who takes the
initiative, who acts first, who de
termines where and how his oppo
nent shall move. Circumstances!
may prevent his being successful,
but in the long run, it he acts in
telligently, you may be sure that |
man is the stronger.
Whether weak or. strong, it was I
Hannibal who always took the j
lead, while the Romans followed.
Even when his ranks grew so I
deplete d that he could no" longer |
attack, that he must avoid battle,
if he could, he it was who decided
when and where both armies
should move, and what they should
do. And he had the skill* which
enabled him to the last to march
thought the length and breadth
of Italy, in and out among the
Roman armies, and either so
secretly that he eluded pursuit,
or else in a manner which im
pressed itself so strongly upon his
foes that they dared not interfere

finaily^on. .They stood for good
institutions,, good laws. Of course
they would win in the end.
Behind the mighty African, mag
nificent in his personal intellect,
in his moral force, his tireless
physical strength, his matchless
form of creating opportunity ; be
hind him, stood weak, vacillating,

reason: The other day we were
commissioned to remove -some
blue-black ink from the job press.
Instantly we set to work to remove
it-we removed it-and we wish
now somebody had removed us
before we tried it. By using
plenty of kerosene we removed all
the ink-to our hands. Now we
would like to hire ourselves to
some dime-museum manager as a
spotted "devil." Terms easy.
Come early and avoid the rush.
When the ink wears off, if it ever
does, we will onoe more appear
When our new office was fixed
up-or rather down, as it is now
on the ground floor-we had a
clean towel. "But now, alas ! it
has come to pass thaf towel is
black as ink." The worst part of
it is they blaine it on ue, because
we got that ink off the job press
on our hands.
A t-oor little "devil" like us gets
he- aps of blame attached to his
name if he stays in a printing
Tho other day as we were run
ning off the papers, a Thomas cat
inadvertently strayed into the
office, all unconscious of impend
ing harm. Any of his friends or|
relatives calling at this office and
identifying his remains, we would
be pleased to turn them < ver to
him. or her, as the case may be. j
We had stopped the press awhile
to let the two negroes who were
running it rest. After tht y were
rested we started up again, whon
we were startled by an ear-split
ting yell from tho interior of the
press. The kinks all flew out of
tho negro's hair that was running
it, (the negro, not. the hair, was
running the press) and he started
for the door.
We stooped down to see tfhat j
was the matter, and found a few
claws and some fur on the forms,
then we knew what had happened :
the Thomas cat had ' stepped on
the bed of the press, (he didn't
know 'twas loaded) and-,but let
us draw a curtain on this painful
scene. (We don't know what
this phrase means, but we have
seen it in several novels, and
think it ought to come in about
As we said before, if any of his
friends or relatives will call at
this office, they can get his re

PLANT LESS COTTON.
Hubbard, Price & Co., the Great
Cotton Heil of New York,
Preach a Little Sermon
to our Readers From
the Oft Repeated
DEAR SIR: A decline to-day
brings the price of cotton to the
lowest point yet touched in our
market, though the " quotations
abroad are slightly higher for tho
nearby deliveries than the lowest
prices of February. Thi&tdecline
has been caused by the heavy sell
ing for European account, as our
market had sustained itself above
the parity of the foreign- markets,
and by a fear that the stocks of
cotton in the South would press
heavily upon the market through
the lack of Continental demand.
In fact the feeling in favor of
lower prices is more pronounced
in the cotton growing States than
in the North, where the belief has
been general that a large falling
in the acreage, and a reduction in
the use of fertilizers, would be the
natural result of the over Iproduc
tion of cotton. An article in
Bradstreet's stating the reduction
in acreage would not be as exten
sive as had been hoped for, their
information pointing to 10% or
15% when 25 to 30% was expected
by the trade, intensified the feel
ing of depression, and caused the
selling of some long cotton on
Saturday. The period of increase
in the visible supply of cotton is
thought to have reached its maxi
mum, and from now on the con
sumptive requirements will weekly
diminish the supply, while the de
crease in the movement from India
will probably more than offset the
amount of American cotton coming
into sight in excess of last year.
Up to the 1st of March the reduc
tion in the movement of fertilizers
for the season is believed to have
been about 40% of the shipments
of 1891, and though the demand
during the last ten days shows an
improvement, the best authorities
believe the output will show a re
duction ol about 30%. A mis
leading statement in one of the
3outhern journals led many to be
lieve the movement this season
bad exceeded that of '91, but a care
ful investigation discovered the
srrof was due to a comparison for
me month, without considering
the entire season.
That the factors and planters of
;he South will not pursue the only
method of bringing prosperity to
;hemselves-that is, to plant and
.aise less cotton, we can scarcely
iredit, though we find the con
sumers of opinion that the reduc
ion will not be so large as we
;hought possible. If the reduction
in acreage is not generally be
ieved to be over the figures given
>y Bradstreet, it is ?vident the
ialance of this season's crop will

Durability of Ancient Ink.
The labor required in making the man

modern adjuncts to that art. As these
booka were intended to last for many
years, answering the same purpose as
our printed lomos, tho great desideratum
in their preparation was durability. As
a natural consequence, those who made
them not only selected the best quality

upon, but also paid particular attention
to tho quality of the ink used in such
That they were successful in making
the latter is evidenced by the fact that
in the majority of instances the char
acters inscribed on the most ancient
manuscript rolls now preserved in the
Britism museum and elsewhere are very
legible, the ink being bright and black
and showing but little evidence of its
great age. It is supposed that the su

a manner now unknown, was the true
cause of thus beautiful and lasting color
of the ink in question.-Detroit Free
Inventor Davy and Love
Sir Humphry Davy, tho inventor of
the Davy lamp, found love something
of a delusion, if not a snare. Writing
to his mother, he said, "1 am the hap
piest of men in the hope of a union with,
a woman equally dlstinjruished for vir
tues, talents and accomplishments."
And in a lotter to his brother he express
es his rapturo thus: "Mrs. Apprece has
consented to marry me, and when the
event takes place I shall not envy kings,
princes or potentates. "
The widow must have been a person
possessed of great powers of fascination,
for Sir Henry Holland makes mention
of her as a lady who made such a sensa
tion in Edinburgh society that even a
regius professor did not think it beneath
bis scholarship to go down on his knees
in the street to fasten her shoe. Tho
sequel need not be dwelt upon further
than to add that the marriage turned
out to be altogether a mistake.-Cas
