Brown's right; the old soldiers did
eat raw recruits with to much hilar*
y, and especially did they take de
ckt in guying the "melish."
"Come out of that biled shirtl"
"Gome out of that hat-I know you
ie there for I see your legs!"
Such foolishness as this was sure to
reet the old melish whenever he hap
ped about them. But these screams

hould be no laughing matter, for it
epresented the great stress for Boi

or nothing but to show how little we
flew of what waT really was, and so
tis now. The young generation will
urn of things they never dreamed,

Just before old Sherman swung
mund to Jonesboro,- the people
eemed to know that there was trouble
brewing, and the big roads were Sl?
dwith refugees getting, out of tho
'?y. Kef ugeeing is a part of war and
1 very sad part. These refugees had

Mild never find it io their hearts to
?rn away these poor refugees-as long
?there was a crust of bread to divide
?"place to stick one of them on bad
"ihts nut of the weather.
The night before Sherman swung
wund it was raining and as dark as
'*ypt. We had took the refugees in
W there was not a place for one to
*. They had been piled upon the
tor after the beds gave out till there
'?s not room to step about without

'W woman bad reserved our own bed,
lJd "erc just 'fixing to retire, when
Je dogs broke around the house as if
?ey had discovered some wild var
Jjjt and were bent on tearing it up,
Jben I stepped out to see what was
** matter, what should I find but as
l*eeu young lady as you ever laid
wot eyes upon, and when we had got
inside the house she told the mo?t
?tiful u?Vycm over heard about as
flhe had-started down the road to
??peut of the way of thVy?pkees,
?Host her way rn the'dark, could
Jj? no further and was; just'about
? faint. The old woman shed tears

to get up a little something to

I had to stimulate the poor thing and
1 roy good old woman give up the last
' grain of sure enough coffee in Georgia
to warm tho lady and make her feel ac
much at home as possible under thc
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 chaii
through the night. My old woman
would never hear to such a thing
such a sweet creature must have n
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 and
our hearts went with her, wishing her
a god-speed upon her way. Up in tho
day, after breakfast, I saw a long line
of blue coatB coming. I called th:
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. Direotly there
came in sight some men on horses,
and as they approached the 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 thai the men
and horses were some general and
staff, and before I eould 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 tho 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 theso 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
marching up to us, and again I would
have sworn thst 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 army

A WOMAN'S NEW KINSFOLK.
People-ln-Law are Bound to Come
With Husbands and Weddings.
St. TxHiifi Republic.
She has been married two weeks,
but she has told her husband she "did
I not marry his whole family." Of
course he was a little surprised to
hear her say this, but he accepted it
as a sort of matter of faot, and though
, he was provoked enough to say "things"
he wisely did not.
( It all came about in this way : The
husband's mother and sister had writ
ten they wore coming up for a short
, visit, and the little bride had made
other plans for the coming three or
four weeks, and she did not want them
The mother and sister from a near
by town are just tho dearest women in
\ the world, and they have not yet seen
the lovely little wife about whom
their dear "Will" has writton so
' much. They have her picture and
have admired it and shown it to all
their friends. Will's business unex
pectedly detained him, so the wed
ding journey has been postponed and
the pretty new homo occupied earlier
than was expected. It was a quiet,
simple wedding and as Will intended
taking his wife at once on a visit to
his old home the family had not been
at the wedding.
The bride of this story is not unkind
or ungenerous. She has only not yet
learned that people-in-law are neces
sities, that folks accept with husbands.
She adores her own mother, and her
brothers dote on her. She would feel
it sadly if sue was separated from
( them, and I don't know what she
would feel should her beloved Will
tell her -~ne day that he had "not
married her whole family." But the
little bride thinks she has gathered
wisdom from the experiences of others.
She has heard older women tell of tho
perfectly horrid times they have had
when their husband's mothers came
to visit them and teach them how to
keep house, and she has quite made
up her mind that just as dreadful
times are in store for her. She doeo
not stop to consider how dear Will's
gentle mother is to him or how inter
ested his sisters must be in his new
home and how it is managed.
I want very mueh sometimes to
pick up the cudgel of defense in behalf
of people-in-law. I did that day
when I heard the* two-weeks' wife de
clare that her interest did not include
the whole of her husband's family. I
rather think I would have been glad
had that particular Will, instead of
looking a bit grieved and saying com
forting things, said the "things" he
thought. He may have been wisest
not to, but I somehow fancy he will
finally, unless his pretty girl-wife
early repentB and loves, as she de
serves to be loved, the dear little
mother andgthe quiet womanly sister
in-law. Their ways may not be ex
actly her ways, but I have learned
that most husbands' mothers have the
very best of intentions, and only
mean to improve their new-found
daughters when they offer to teach
them old-fashioned ways of cooking
and economizing. I hope that the
eye of some new wife will catch this
that I am going to write: A husband's
mother is to be won over forever if a
son's new wife will only let herself be
taught a few things that will add to
the happiness and comfort of that
mother's son, for he is still her "boy,"
and indifference to his comfort at
home and the thoughtless spending of
his money can never be anything but
a deep grief to thc mother heart.
Tho girl who is generous will be
willing to have her husband share his
love With his family and try to make
the mother feel that she has not lost
a son. but has gained a daughter.
This may, I know, sometimes not be
an easy task, but for the final happi
ness of'two people it is well worth the
gentleness and patience that it will
require to accomplish this end.
. ^vVhen Tom, who haB spent nearly
all his life in the 'country, goes to
town and in time marries a city girl
and takes her 'to his country home,
then I am sorry Tor both the city girl
and Tom's people, to say nothing of
For so many years the quiet, codi
and roomy, old house has known the
same oven rule. Tom's mother was
born in that house, and from her
mother she learned sill the mysteries
of housekeeping, every carpet and
every piece ?f furniture bas its own
particular associations. The cane
seated chairs that stand about in the
kitchen and on tho porches are made
'from the hickory trees that were out
down to clear a place for the first
three rooms that composed the home
stead that has been added to until it
is now a ?redt, rambling house with
one of the Original three rooms in the
Center for a hallway.
If Tom's wi,'c loves quaint, old
fashioned things she is satisfied with
all'this, but quite Often it happens
that she approves of things more np
to date, and modernizes the old home,
until she is quite happy, and Tom's
mother'is quite uncomfortable.
If the town girl accepts Tom from
' the country she should -accept Tom's
home and family just as they are,
without one change or improvement.
She docs not need to sink her own
individuality in doing this. She will
ba 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
i they fail for Tom's wife to take them
up. Thc saddest thing that can hap
pen on earth is tho putting of a mother
on the stired list before she horself
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 arc always de
pendent upon her.
It acorns to mc that a daughter-in
law's position is a responsible one,
and that no better fortune ean befall
her than to hear herself in time
affectionately spoken of aa "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 thc 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. Put 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,
Diok 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 her 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 othex
people so little and yet is interferrcd
in so much as the matter of finding s
suitable husband or wife. If you an
inclined toward matchmaking, my ad
vice to you is, don't. It is all right
to throw congenial pocple together

quently, when it is a "best friend'

somebody is bound to be disappoints

It may be true that maniagea ar
made in heaven, but a great deal tba
is earthly somehow gets mixed u
with them. If two people think tba

all the time, then those two are mic

ships that it will be very hard to assc

The highest and best of happines
comes through sympathy-throug
being understood. All men, as well a
women, have ideals. These should h
respected. We are all better f(
entertaining them. The woman wh
is interested in her husband's Iii
work, no matter whether that is plan

A lamons Shot.
A chicago lawyer has received from
one of the officers of the United
States monitor Puritan a letter giving
an account ef the bombardment of
Matanzas and thc famous shot which
silenced the Gordon Point battery.
The story was written at the request of
tho 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 Gerda Point. She
passed us and signaled us to follow
her, steaming in to within 3,000 yards
of thc batteries. She stopped, and
suddenly we saw her forward 8-inch
guns fired, the shot striking the earth
works near the battery. Thc Span
iards replied to this shot, and the New
York began to light up. You could
not see her for scoke.
"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 eur 12-inch
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 thc 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 waa 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 burse-a phenomenal shot.
The men shouted themselves hoarse."

timely and intelligent preparation is
the best meaos of keeping this dread
