THE BRAVEST OF BATTLES.
The brav sst battle that ever was fought,
Shall I tell you where, and when? I
On the maps of the world you'll find it
Twas fought by the mothers of men.
Nay, hot with cannon or battle shot,
With sword or nobler pen ;
Nay, not with eloquent word or
Tram mouth of wonderful men.
But deep in a wailed-up woman's
Of woman that would not yield,
But bravely, silently bore her part
Lo! there is the battle-field.
No marshaling troop, no bivouac song, I
No baener to gleam and wave!
But oh, these battles! they last so j

Caius Julina Caesar wa,e ihe
most useful man of- antiquity ; do
ing equally good work as states
man and soldier. It is only as a j
soldier we are to study hun.
Cosar came of good stock. In
youth he was one of the dandies of
Rome, but commanded respect.
Salla remarked : "That it would

lad, but gymnastics and. a right
regimen had given him a fair
physique, his education had been
attended to, and he early made
reputation as a lawyer and Orator,
held several public offices and be

tendom of Rome.
Caesar did nothing, however,
which showed any exceptional

His opportunity came when he I
wa6 chosen consul with Gaul as |
, his province. Both he and Pom
pey belonged to the triumvirate
that governed the Roman state,
but Pompey was the leader. Cosar
saw that if ho could subdue the
Gauls-^always the terror of Rome
he would be the great national
herb. He saw, too, that while
fighting the barbarians he would
be creating an army of veterans
with which he could rise to sole
His way of approaching the new
. business of war shows that Cosar
considered first the "strategic sit
uation," jost as Alexander or Han
nibal would have done.
In those days "strategy'* WAS
understood as a science. Tactics
-the art of maneuvering troops
on the battle - field--was well de
veloped. Strategy has been called
the art pf moving troops on the
map. It is the art of moving
armies over a large section of
country in such a manner as to
place the enemy ata disadvantage.
Cosar made a study of the na
tural features of Gaul-its moun
tains, river?, forests, and coast J
lines. Then he formed a general
scheme of conquest. Some of the
chiefs of Gaul were very able men,
but in eight years Cosar made the
country a Roman province.
Shortly after Cosar and Pom
pey found themselves arrayed in j
arms against each other-the
other member of the triumvirate,
Crassus, had died. Pompey stood
for the aristocratic party-Cosar
for democratic ideas.
Pompey had vastly larger, re
sources, but Cosar in ten months
had driven him over into Greece
and himself held all Italy. He
marched into Spain and captured
and disbanded Pompey's seven
legions there. Then he went into
Greece with his veterans and
fought Pompey again, and Pompey
fled to Egypt; whither Cosar leis

Once I saw two men about to

toquiet them and who, by the way,
was standing at the butt end of
the gun, yelled that there was as
much danger behind as in front of

Mechanism of the Heart.
In the human subject the
average rapidity of the cardiac
pulsation of an adult male is about
seventy beats per. minute. These
beats are more frequent as a rule
in young children and in women,
and there are variation's within
cerfain limits in peculiar persons
owing to peculiarities of organiza
tion. , It would not necessarily be
an abnormal sign to find in some
particular individuals the habitual
frequency Of the heart's act*
seventy fiveto eight per minute.
As a rule, the heart's action is
slower and more powerful in fully
developed and muscular organiza
tions, and more rapid and feebler
in those of slighter, form. In
animals, the range is from twenty
five to forty-five in the cold blooded
and fifty upward in the warm
blooded animal-3, except in the case
of a horse, which has a very slow
heart beat, only forty strokes a
minute. The pulsations of men
and all animals differ with the sea
level also. The work of a healthy
human heart has been shown to
equal the feat bf raising five tons
four hundred weight one foot per
hour, or 125 tons in twenty-four
hours. The excess of this work
under alcohol injvary ing qu?ntitles
is often very great. A curious
calculation has been made by Dr.
Richardson, giving the work of the
heart in mileage. Presuming that
the blood was thrown out of the
heart at each pulsation in the
proportion of 69?strokes per minute
and at the assumed force of 2 feet,
the mileage of the blood through
the body might be taken at 207
yards per minute, 7 miles per
hour, 168 miles per day, 61, 320
miles per year; or 5,150,880 miles
in a lifetime of 84 years. The
number of the heart in the same
long life would reach the grand
total of 2,869,776,000.-Medical
Dame Fashion has never pre

either pretty or stylish' about it,

to the extreme in fashion will
adopt it. The skirt is tho regular
bell skirt with a band of trim

blouse is what is so ugly ; has the
appearance of a long, loose sacque,
with a yoke, and belted in at the
waist. It will only suit a very
slender, graceful figure.
Long ribbon sashes that reach to
the bottom of the dress are very
much worn, not only on evening
dresses, but street dresses. Ribbon

writes, bat he certainly has never
taught doctrine like that contained
in the opening paragraph of that
letter. General Hampton says :

those members of the ring like to

maud of those opposed to them,

it will, that the opponents of the

the very influences which now

that if this March Convention,
acting under General Hampton's
