LndloTf'a Victory Over Shaffer.
General William Ludlow, who is
achieving high fame as the first Ameri
can governor of Havana, owes his pres
ent command to a personal victory he
gained over General Shatter in the first
days of the Santiago campaign. .
He had long, ago attained u fine rec
ord as a topographical engineer, and
was one of the first regular army officers
to seek service in Cuba. With a scarce
ly dried commission of brigadier general
of volunteers in his pocket be hastened
to General Shaffer.
Seeing that General Shatter already
had a competent engineer on his staff,
General Ludlow applied for command
of a brigade on the fighting line, and
mentioned the First brigade of the Sec
ond division. General Shatter looked up
in surprise and exclaimed- "I thought
you were an engineer!"
"So I am," replied General Ludlow,
"also an artillerist, or cavalry officer,
or an infantry officer, at the will of my
superiors, like ever3' trained soldier."
General Shafter began parleying, and
General Ludlow, in the mildest manner
possible, insisted, morning after morn
ing, until he received it. After the ter
rible battle of El Caney he was promot
ed to be a major general. Philadelphia

There is no charm about McEIret's Wine of -Cardui, al
though there seems to be. When it is taken by women suffer

release from the grasp of terrible diseases brings about such
feelings of relief and joy that they imagine the Wine is charmed.
The truth is that this is exactly the medicine Nature intended for
curing the feminine organs when weakness or disease attacks
them. Its action b direct upon the delicate organs of menstrua

Washington, May S. The recent
of an extensive system of
demonstrates the fact
certain there are stolen plates in exist
ence, and he did not hesitate to say so
even when lie was in the government
Whenever a new counterfeit appears
the first thought that comes to the se
cret service officers is that it was made
by some of the engravers in the treasury
list. Theso are not till treasnry engrav
ers. The list kept by the government
includes all the men who have worked
or are working for tjie bank note and
engraving companies in New York,
Chicago, St. Louis and other cities.
Not suspiciously, but as a matter of
course, the secret service officers try to
trace tho counterfeit to some engraver
first to one who lias committed a
crimo before and then to some man who
is presumably honest. A good record is
no protection from investigation. When 1
some outsider has committed the crime,
the officers nre puzzled to find a clew.
If a known engraver is guilty, it is
only a question of time when the crime
will bo fastened on him.
When there are no new counterfeits
to be traced, the officers keep them
selves informed of the movements of all
' the engravers in the country. If an en
graver falls into bad habits, the fact is
i reported to the treasury departuient. If
he sits up late at night, he becomes the
1 victim of suspicion. Engravers draw
' ing heavy salaries for legitimate work

Gordon Clydo was ono of tho wealthiest
men in his nativo place. Ho always lived
on his money without having a profes
sion or occupation, nnd, as a matter of
course, it was the calisc of much comment
when ho made known his intentions of
going to the metropolis to engago in some
It was a bitter cold winter's night. The
snow lay thick upon .the ground, and tho
wind whistled through the city streets.
A gentleman, well mutllcd from tho bit
ing wind, was hurrying along tho deserted
street whon a woman stepped up to him.
"For God's sake, sir, help mc! My hus
band is dying, and my littlo ono is starv
ing!" Tho woman's teeth chattered with the
cold as sho spoke, but it was not her chat
tering teeth nor pitiful story that made
tho gentleman turn and gazo intently at
her blue, pinched face.
"Great God, Olam J.cslio!" ho cried
And the woman shivered as If with a fit
For four long years Gordon Clydo had
waited for this hour. The wretchedly clad
nuiium must navo noticed the pitllesslook
in his eyes, for she cried:
'Gordon Clyde, I sinned against yon
ho sinned against you; but our punish
ment has been great. Misfortimo has fol
lowed us since tho night we left my aunt's
cottage. Ho is dying, and I am in the
street begging such a night as this. Huvo
mercy upon us, Gordon Clyde, or we'll

" 'Vengeance is mine, and I will repay,
saith tho Lord.' Leavo them to him, Gor
don." Mary Leslie's voice sounded in his ear
once mora Ah, how often had thoso words
rung in his cars during tho last four years!
Hut tho demon of hatred within hlin
would not let hlin heed them. His
thoughts went back to Mary Lcslio now
ns ho looked down on tlio woman that had
so cruelly betrayed him.
After an absence of four years Gordon
lliat ill directed ingenuity can for a
time baffle the shrewdest official pre
cautions. There is a class of highly
skilled, well paid workmen in the Unit
ed States.which is continually nnder
surveillance. It is composed of the men
who are employed in the engraviug of
designs for bank notes.
When a man takes the position of
treasurer of the United States, he files
a perpetrfal bond to secure the govern
ment against loss. If he has been out
of office 20 years, that guarantee still
hangs over his head and the heads of
his .bondsmen. So the man who has
been engaged in tho making of plates
for the treasury or for a bank note com
pany may resign his position and go
into some other business, but he never
escapes the watehfnl eye of the secret
service officer. His habits are known
his haunts, his friends, his occupation.
If ho succeeds in business and becomes
prosperous, tho vigilance of the watch
ers is a littlo relaxed. If ho fails, all
the more reason for keeping an cyo on
him, for he has now the incentive to
commit crime. No temptation is so
strong as the temptation to make bogus
It is not very pleasant to contemplate
life under the watchful, suspicions eye
of tho law, but every man who takes
up bank note engraving must make up
his mind -to endnro it ever afterward,
even if he change his occupation a hun
This is the reason for the watch on
engravers only a skilled engraver and
one familiar with bank note work can
make a plate which is even a passable
imitation of the plates used by the
