The Boys Who Get ii

"I had to go when old Sherman
.came," said Brown, "andi as little
?expected it as I do of having to go at
"Had to go?" said I, in a manner
to draw him out, for talks on the war
. ?re now in order and about all that
people will listen to.
"Yes, had to go/' said he, with
something of a sneer in his tone.
"I had to jine under the last con
script aot, whieh took us from sixteen
to sixty. I have never seen what
good there was in taking such oki
folks, but they did, and I was a most
unwilling victim. They mixed me up
with the fellows who had been there
all the way through and to say that
these fellows presumed on their length
of service is putting it mild. They
were entirely too funny to suit me.
They seemed to derive the greatest
? pleasure in laughing at me at times
when nothing but the severest seri
ousness perched upon my fevered
brow. I am satisfied that one fellow
t?ey put me in a pit with tried to get i
me killed just that he might laugh at
my kicks as I expired. Every time I
got laid down good he found some
excuse to make me *et up and let
them pop at me again, and then he
would laugh at every fool thing and
th? nearer they came to killing me
the louder he would laugh. One
time when I raised my head a little
1 too high a yankee ball went zip
through the crown of my hat. The
. fool took it as great fun and rolled
.and roared in greatest glee. I never
jet have 1>een able to see anything
funny ?bout war."
Brown's right; the old soldiers did
treat raw recruits with to much hilar
ity, and especially did they take de
light in guying the "melish."
"Come ont of that biled shirt!"
"Come ont of that hat-I know you
are there for I see your legs!"
Such foolishness as this was sure to
greet the old melish wL -aever he hap
pened about them. But these screams
did not disturb the ones taken in the
last call, for the mose of them were
deaf even to the cannon's roar, muoh
less the voice of man. I knew one
company of this old militia that was a
hundred and five streng, and in all
these 105 men there were only 106
eyes. Just one man of their number
had two good eyes, and the drill ser
geant had to go close up to each one
and scream: "Fall in" when he wanted
diem to forma linc- "Fall in! fall
in!" and it took quite a while to get
them in line, and then if you didn't
mind they Would sit down and have to
have help to get np if any speed was
required in the matten I laugh a
little myself) now, when I think of
that old Georgia melish and of Joe
Brown's pikes, and yet I know it
should be no laughing matter, for it
represented the great stress for sol
diers and indicated the desperation of
the leaders to sustain the Confederate
cause. Joe Brown's pikes were good
for nothing but to show how little we
knew of what war really was, and so
it is now. The young generation will
leam of things they1 never dreamed,
and there can be no harm iu telling of
things which may in a degree prepare
them for whatever may come as a
consequence of war.
Just before old Sherman swung
around to Jonesboro, the people
seemed to know that there was trouble
a-brewihg, and the big roads were fill
ed with refugees getting, out of thc
way. Befugeeing is a part of war and
a very sad part. These refugees had
been moving on in front of Sherman
from away in Tennessee and the most
of them was in a bad condition; in
fact the most of them were in distress
and had to live as best they could
from the charity of the few who yet
remained at their homes along the
roads. My folks, nor Brown's folks
could never find it in their hearts to
turn away these poor refugees- as long
as there was a crust of bread to divide
or a place to stick one of them on bad
nights out of the weather.
Toe night before Sherman swung
around it was raining and as dark as
Egypt. "We had took the refugees in
till there was not. a place for one to
lie. They had been piled upon the
floor after the beds gave out till there
was not room to step about without
stepping on some one. Me and the
old woman had reserved our own bed,
and were just fixing to retire, when
the dogs broke around the house as if
they had discovered some wild var
mint and were bent on tearing it up.
When'l stepped out to see what was
the matter, what should I find but as
sweet young lady as you ever laid
your ey?s upon, sud when we had got
her inside the house she told the most
pitiful tale you ever heard about as
how she had" started down the road to
keep out of the way of the yankees,
had lost h?rw?y in the dark, could
travel no further aud was just'about
to faint. The old woman shed tears
as the girl related her story and went
about to get up a little something to
* eat. I gave up the last drop of spirits
i the War First-They
I had to stimulate the poor thing and
my good old woman give up the last
grain of sure enough coffee in Georgia
to warm the lady and make her feel as
much at home as possible under the
After so long a time, we began to
figure as to how the young lady should
sleep for the night, whereupon she
insisted upon just sitting in the chair
through the night. My old woman
would never hear to such a thing
such a sweet creature must. have a
bed if we had to do without one our
selves; but at last it was arranged
that we should crawl up the ladder
into the loft and sleep on the broom
straw up there, and I will remark that
I had as good a night's rest as I ever
had in my life, for the rain pattered
on the boards right at my head and
sounded so sweet that I forgot all
about the war and dreamed sweet
dreams the whole night through.
The young lady was up and gone by
the break of day the next morning an d
our hearts went with her, wishing her
a god-speed upon her way. Up in the
day, after breakfast, I saw a long line
of blue coats coming. T called th J
old woman and told her that we were
goners-that old Sherman was upon
us. Brown's girls were there and
persuaded me out of running, and so
we stood upon the porch and awaited
the coming of the soldiers.
Just as the line had arrived in front
of Our house the soldiers halted and
? scattered to each side of the road and
sit down for a rest. Directly there
came in sight some men on horses,
and as they apprbaohed vthe soldiers
arose and shouted, with a great waving
of caps :
"Huzza, huzza, huzza!"
I did not like that sound, nor I
don't like it much till yet, but any
how, I soon understood that the men
and horses were some general and
staff, and before I could tell it two of
them rode right into our yard and
once, again I would have swore that
we were goners, but they soon turned
to the well and inspired the hope that
they only wanted water. One of
these two was a monstrous handsome
young officer and the other was a
sharp-looking man, whom I after
wards learned was General Sherman.
I kept my eyes on them and expected
every minute to see them begin to
feel for matches, but they didn't, and
pretty soon the young officer-lifted
his hat and gave us a salute. Then,
thinks I, what in the thunder is the
matter with these yankees, and before
I had time to feel good over their
politeness the old general called a
man and pointed toward us. This
man, with six others, at once came
m?rching up to us, and again I would
have sworn that we were goners, but
the spokesman said, as they halted in
"We are sent here by General Sher
man to guard your home."
Before I had caught my breath from
the surprise up rode another fellow
**ith a whole lot of bundles and handed
them over to the old woman. Along
with a lot of sure enough coffee and
other good things, there came a note
for me. It read:
"These things are sent you by an
officer of the United States ?nny

This may. I know, sometimes not

For so many years the quiet, coi
and roomy, old house has known tli
same even rule. Tom's mother wt
born in that house, and from h(
mother she learned a'll the mysteric
of housekeeping, every carpet an
every piece of furniture ha3 its ow
particular associations. The cane

is now a great, rambling house witl
one of the Original three rooms in th'
Center for a hallway.
If Tom's wife loves quaint, old
fashioned things she is satisfied witl
all this, but quite often it happen:
that she approves ol' things more u]
to date, and modernizes the old home
until she is quite happy, and Tom's
mother is quito uncomfortable.
I If the t??wn girl accepts Tom fron
. the country she should accept Tom's
home and family just as they are,
without one change or improvement.
She does not need to sink her own
individuality in doing this. She will
be left freer and happier to follow her
own favorite pursuits if she willingly
leaves the reins of the household in
the old hands that have held them for
so long. It is time enough when
they fail for Tom's wife to take them
up. The saddest thing that can hap
pen on earth is the putting of a mother
on the retired list before she herself
is ready to be put there. A woman
does not want to feel that because her
children are grown all her work for
them is at an end. She likes to feel
that in a measure they are always de
pendent upon her.
It seems *to me that a daughter-in
law's position is a responsible one,
and that no better fortune can befall
her than to hear herself in time
affectionately spoken of as "my son's
wife," and called "daughter" by her
Baked hominy in Georgia fashion is
a Southern dish that proves itself
both appetizing and nourishing for
the children's supper, or for a lunch
eon dish, served with cold meat. The
hominy may be freshly coiled for the
purpose or the cold boiled grits, left,
over from breakfast, may be utilized.
When warm, drop in it one egg, a
piece of butter the size of a hickory
nut, and salt to taste, and mix thor
oughly with a little milk or cream,
until it forms a batter of medium con
sistency. Fut in a shallow baking
dish, one of the pretty earthen ones
that can be used on the table, and
bake to a delicate crisp brown on top
and sides. It should not be over two
inches deep in the pan.
But there are two sides to every
question, of course. The reverse side
to all this! is the one where Tom,
Dick or Harry's wife is regarded for
an indefinite length of time, or always,
as a robber who has come in and car
ried off the dearest family treasure.
The engaged girl first goes through
this awkward experience, and after
she is a wife, if she is sensitive at all,
she doubly feels her position when
the separation from home becomes
final. Often she longs to have her
new relations assure ber that they are
something more than merely "resign
ed" to Dick's marriage.
Dick is not always most happily
married when he waits until mother
and sisters are quite reidy to have
him wed and pick out the woman he
is to marry.
There is nothing that concerns other
people so little and yet is interferred
in so much as the matter of finding a
suitable husband or wife. If you are
inclined toward matchmaking, my ad
vice to you is, don't. It is all right
to throw congenial people together
If Cindereila had not gone to the
bail, you know, she never would have
met the Prince. But Cupid and Fate
are better hands at managing affairs
of the heart than summer time chape
rons or "best friends." Not infre
quently, when it is a "best friend"
who engineers matters, it turns out to
be a regular "why don't you speak for
yourself, John?" case, and then
somebody is bound to be disappointed
and unhappy. And, then, who ever
heard of one's marrying to entirely
suit everybody in one's family?
It may be true that marriages are
made in heaven, but a great deal that
is earthly somehow gets mixed up
with them. If two people think that
they will journey through life for
maybe half a century, with a halo of
romance about them all the way, and
all the time,- then those two are mis
taken. There will be trials and hard
ships that it will be very hard to asso
ciate with romance.
The highest and best of happiness
comes through sympathy-through
being understood. All men, as well as
womeu, have ideals. These should be
respected. We arc all better for
entertaining them. The woman who
is interested in her husband's life
work, no matter whether that is plant
ing com or painting pictures, and
encourages him to reach his highest
aims, is better beloved, even if she is
plain of form and features, than the
woman who is selfishly indifferent and
as beautiful as it is possible to be. I,
for one, am a great admirer of beauty,
but beauty in woman cannot begin to
compare with that sweetness of dis
position and charm of manner that
make one forget to notice whether the
mouth is faultless or thc figure per
fect. Many women who please at
first sight in a short while lose their
charm. Vanity and an evidence of
self-love are not calculated to inspire j
?r help very deep regard.
Thc most delightful woman in the
world is the one who retains her indi
viduality after marriage, for in this
way she is ever charming and new.
brough purity of heart there comes
beauty of soul, and there is a positive
divinity about thc woman whose soul
shines out through thc commonplace
doings of her daily life. Such a
woman, into whatever home or place
she may go, and whether as maid or
wife, you will rind not so much a mis
fit, and not waiting long to bc under

"Oh, no; I don't mean that. It is
on him and my little boy, too."
"Not on an innocent child ?"
"Yes. You know the little fellow
has been marching around at a great
rate with his tin sword and gun, and
yesterday afternoon he informed me,
to my horror, that he was going to
fight the d-n Spaniards. Think of
that, will you ? And he is a prize
Sunday school scholar."
"Yes ; and when his father came
home I told him about it, and insisted
that he take Willie and give him a
good whipping for swearing, and what
do you think he did ?"
"Told you to do it yourself, as my
husband always does."
"No, he didn't either. He told me
that under the circumstances it was
not swearing, and that the boy could
say what he pleased about the d-n
Spaniards. And he's a member of the
Church himself ?"
A lamons Shot.
A chicago lawyer has received from
one of the officers of the United
States monitor Puritan a letter giving
an account sf the bombardment of
Matanzas and the famous shot which
silenced the Gordon Point battery.
The story was written at the request of
the attorney, and is as follows:
"You ask me about Matanzas, and
the bombardment. Wednesday the
New York came down from off Havana
to investigate a report to the effect
that the dons were putting up some
new batteries at Gorda Point. She
passed us and signaled us to follow
her, steaming in to within 3,000 yards
D? the batteries. She stopped, and
suddenly we saw her forward 8-inch
guns fired, the shot striking the earth
works near the battery. The Span
iards replied to this shot, and the New
York began to light up. You could
not see her for smoke.
''We began to get nervous for fear
that we were to be left out of the muss,
so we signaled for permission to fire,
and it being given, we unchained a
few of our pets and did good work.
We fired only one of ?ur 12-in?h
guns, one in our forward turret, at the
Murillo battery, on the left hand side
of the harbor.
"It struck short, but the ricochet
must have hit the battery, as the dons
were immediately seen going over the
hill, striking the ground only in high
"The famous shot was our last one
from the port forward 4-inch, and it
was quite funny. A man by the name
of Jackson, an old cowboy, is the gun
captain. Three minutes after the or
der, "cease firing"' was given from the
flagship, everybody was startled to
hear the 4-inch gun go off. The man
evidently felt he had a dead head and
he let her go regardless. The range
was about two and one-half miles, and
the shot struck right in the Gorda
battery and burst-a phenomenal shot.
The men shouted themselves hoarse."
