IiV GEORGE ALFKED TOWKSKXD.
I'oem read at the Reunion of the Army
of the Potomac Society.
Civil soldiers, re-asscmbled by the river of
your fame,
Ye who served the virgin city, bathed Id
Washington's clear name,
Which of all your past commanders doth
this day your memory haunt 7
Scott, McDowell, Barnside, Hooker, Meade,
McCIclIan, Ualleclc, Grant!
There is one too little mentioned when
your prond reunion! come,
And thougutitil love of country diet upon
the sounding, drum.
Let me call him In your muster; let me
wake him in your grief
Captain by tuo constitution, Abraham Lin
coln was your chief.
Ever nearest to his person, ye were his de
fense and shield,
He alone of your commanders died upon
the battle field.
All your generals were his children, lean
ing on his childish will,
Ami they all were filial mourners 'round
the mighty tomb he filled.
Tender as the heart of David hit soft ans
wers now become,
When amid the cares of kingdoms rose and
fell soma Absalom.
And his humor gilds his memory like a
light within a tent.
Or the sunken sun that lingers on the lofty
monument.
Like the slave that saw the sunrise with
his face toward the West,
As it Haxhed, while yet 'twas hidden, on a
slender steeple's crest.
So while victory turned her front him, ere
the dawn In welcome came,
On his pen Kmancipatlon glittered like an
alter flame.
Keeling for the doomed deserter, feeling for
the drafted sire,
For the empty Northern hearthstone and
and the Southeru home afire,
.Mercy kept him grim as Moloch, all the fn
turc babes to free,
And eternal peace to garner for the mil
lions yet to be.
Not aasoldlcr oflbc classics, he could see
through learned pretense ;
Jlaslcr of the greatest science, military
common sense.
As he watched your marches, comrades,
hither, thither, wayward years,
On his map the roads yon followed you can
trace them by his tears.
In the rear the people clamored; in the
front the .Generals missed ;
In his inner councils harbored critic and
antagonist.
Hut ho rilled them by an instinct like the
queens among the bees,
With a health or souls that honeyed -I'ltbll-
cans aud Pharisees.
Faint of faith wc look behind us for a chief
ol higher tone, .
While the voice that drowned the trumpets
was the echo of our own.
Ever thus, my old companions, genius has
us by the hand,
Walking on the tempest with us, every
crisis to command.

Like the bugle blown at evening by some
homesick son of art.
Lincoln's words unearthly quiver on tho
universal heart, .
Not an echo left of malice, scarce of' tri
umph in the strain,
As when summer thunder murmurs In pa
thetic showers of rain.
Years forever consecrated, here he lived
where duties be,
Never crying or tho climate or the toll's
mpnotouy.
Hero his darling boy he buried, and the
night in vigil wept,
Like his Lord within the garden, when the
tired disciples slept.
How his call for men went ringing 'round
the world, a mighty bell,
And the races of creation came the proud
revolt to quell !
Standing in the last reaction on the rock ot
human rights,
Worn aud mournful grew his features in
the flash of battle lights.
Once, like Moses, from the mountain, look
ed he on the realm ho won,
When the slaves iu burning ltlcbmond
knelt and thought him Washington ;
Then an envious bravo snatched him. from
the theatre of things,
To become a saint or nature in the pan
theon of kings.
Faded arc the goldeu chevrons, vanished is
the pride or war;
Mild in heaven bis moral glory lingers like
the morning star,
And the lrcemau's zone or cotton his white
spirit seems to be,
And tho- insects in the harvest beat his
armies' reveille.
All around him spoilers greedy, women
vain and honor spent,
Still bis faith in human nature lived with
out discouragement.
For his country which could raise him
barefoot to the monarch height,
Could he mock her or his mother, though
her name sho could not "write?
Deep the wells or humble childhood, cool
the spring beside the hut,
Millions more as poor as Lincoln, see the
door ho has not shut.
Not till wealth has made ita canker every
poor white's cabin through,
Shall the great republic wither, or the In
fidel subdue.
Stand around your great commander, lay
aside your little rears.
Kvery Lincoln carries freedom's car along
a hundred years.
Aud when nest the call for soldiers rolls
along the golden belt,
Look to sec a mightier column rise and
march, prevail and melt.
Carroll prisons, at Washington. Often
times she was found in the middle or the
hottest fights, but, although on many occa
sions her clothing was literally riddled with
bullets, she invariably escaped personal In
jury. It is related or her that, on one oc
casion, when taken prisoner, she was taken
before General Butler, at Fortress Monroe.
Observing her agitation Ben. remarked :
"Fray be seated. But why do, you trem
ble ao? Are you frightened?"
Ko ; ah that is, yes. General Butler, I
mint acknowledge that I do reel frightened
in the presence of a man of such world
wide reputation as yourself," was her re
ply.
"What do you mean ?'' remarked the gen
eral, as he rubbed his hands together, and
smUed benignly.
"I mean, Gen. Butler," she replied, "that
you are a man whose atrocious conduct and
brutality, especially to Southern ladles, is
so inramoui that even the British Parlia
ment commented upon it. I naturally reel
alarmed at being in your presence,"
With rage depicted upon every lineament
or his features, the general arose from the
table, and ordered her to be taken from the
room.
During her residence in Washington,
'Belle Boyd" foime.I an intimate acquaint
ance with President Lincoln, and a friend
ly correspondence was kept up between the
two during a greater portion or the war.
On one occasion her letter paper was adorn
ed with the Conlederate motto, a snake en
twined around a Confederate flag, and the
inscription, "Don't tread on us, or we will
bite." Wbeu Lincoln replied to the missive
be sent back the motto with "bite" erased
aud the word "bust" substituted.
Broken down In health, and bereaved by
the loss or her father, who had died lu the
endeavor to effect her release from captivi
ty, "Belle Boyd ' determined to leave ror
rorclgn shores, and, in May, 18GI, she em
barked on the Greyhound, at North Caroli
na, as the bearer of important dispatches
from Jefferson Davis and Judah P. Benja
min to tho friends of the cause in London.
In endeavoring to run the blockade, bow
ever, the Greyhound was captured by a
United States steamer. "Belle Boyd" was
taken to Boston, kept a prisoner Tor some
time, and finally banished to Canada. From
there she went to England, where she pass
ed the second epoch or her life. She was
married nt the aristocratic church or St.
James, Piccadilly, received with open arms
Into titled society, became a widow, and,
finally, having a natural talent ror the the
atrical profession, took to the stage.
Probably no per. on in the country has
been afflicted with so many "doubles" as
this lady. Since her return to America aud
marriage to Col. .1. S. Hammond, an Eng
lish gcntlemau, once a member or the noted
"Louisiana Tigers," she has completely
sunk her identity with that or her husband
and with the exception of a few occasions,
when she has appeared upon the platform
as the talented reader and elocutionist,
"Maria Isabelle Hammond," her niiud has
been engrossed with domes-tic affairs. Yet
every few months she is vexed and annoyed
by coming across an announcement that
"Belle Boyd," the cx-Conrederate spy, has
turned up in some part of the country.
Now the pretender is being entertained by
somo prominent Southerner, again she is In
distress, and soliciting aid. Several years
ago, one of these bogus "Belies" visited
Atlanta, ou a lecturing tour, and was de
nounced by Capt. .St. Clair Abrams, or the
A'iwi, as an imposter. Next morning she
proceeded to the office and demanded satis
faction, which being refused, she proceed
ed to draw a couple of derringers, but was
seized before the weapons could be pointed.
Siuce that time, she has not turned up in
Georgia. The latest pretender turned up
in Waxabachie.a few weeks ago, under the
name ot Mrs. Murphy, and, according to
the JCnterprtie, ot that place, was engaged
in writing a history or her lira ; but a brie!
and pointed epistle to a prominent citizen
or that place has probably, by this time,
put a quietus on her pretensions. A long
ago as 18TC, the Masons or Martlnsburg, Vir
ginia, fbund it necessary tg send a circular
to the craft all over the country, warning
them against persons pretending to be the
daughter of their deceased brother, B. It.
Boyd, Esq. The genuine "Belle Boyd" has
just completed a play, which is highly spo
ken of, and contemplates making her entree
upon the stage In this city, iu the coming
autumn. PkitaddphU Bitord.

Sitting, last evening, on the porch, of a
comfortable residence, In the extreme' north
western section of the city, with a sweet
little miss or threo and another of seven
summers playing nldc-and-seek around her
chair, was a lady, who, a score ol years ago,
bore an international reputation. Few, If
any, ol those who knew her once would
now recognize In tho handsome, well pre

like a rose and lily combined, a wealth or

Whencvcr you can llud a soldier who,
under lire, aims low, and shoots to make
every bullet wound or kill, you find fifty
who are nervously throwing away amunl
lion, seeming to reason that the reports or
their muskets will check or drive the ene
my. And yet this nervousness need not be
wondered at, Tor they arc playing a game
or lire or death.
At Malvern Hill, seventeen soldiers, be
longing ia an Ohio regiment, took cover in
a dry ditch, which answered admirably ror
a rifle-pit. A Georgia regiment charged
this little band three times, and were three
times driven back. The fire was low and
rapid, and the loss in front or their guns
was more than one hundred killed in ten
minutes. Regiments have been engaged
ror an hour, without losing hair that num
ber. The fire or this seventeen was so
continuous that McCIclIan forwarded a
brigade to their support, believing that an
entire regiment had been cut off.
At'Mine Hun, the writer was just in the
rear or a Xew York regiment, which was
suddenly-attacked. A single company or
Confederates, cut off from tho regiment,
anil dodging around about to rejoin it, sud
denly debouched Into a field, and found it
sell face to face with tho Union regiment.
Fighting commenced at once. A regiment
fought a company, both lying down for
cover. I lay so near a third sergeant that
I could touch his heels, and I watched bis
fire. Every time he pulled the trigger be
elevated the muzzle or bis gun at an angle
or forty-five degrees, instead or depressing
it for the enemy lying down. I saw him
repeat this operation fourteen different
times. The man in rront of bim nred as
many bullets plump into a stump In his
front, and the man on.the other side shot
Into the ground about ten feet away
Others) must have been wasting bullets
about the same way, but tho little company
was shooting to kill. In that ten minutes
or agatinr, tne .lew Yorkers suneied a
loss or thirty-six killed and wounded, and
then a bayonet charge doubled them back,
and opened a gap ror the little band's es
cape. I walked over the ground, and round
one dead and one wounded Confederate.
Not a gun, blanket, knapsack or canteen
had been left behind.
Any soldier will no doubt fight better un
der cover than he will in the open field,
but. caver does not always insure good
fighting. At Pittsburg Landing, five thou
sand Union soldiers skulked under the
river bank, safe from the enemy's fire, and
many of them threw their guns Into the
river, rather than fire a shot. Again, at
Yellow Tavern, five of Custer's men, dis
mounted aad lying behind a fence, held
five coapaales of cavalry at bay for twenty
minutes, and killed twenty-four men, and
this without getting a scratch in return.
At Miae Run, a Union regiment went in
to the fight with sixty rounds of ammuni
tion per man, making a total of perhaps
four thousand bullets. This regiment was
placed to act aa a cheek to any advance of
tba enesnv la n eertaln direction. Tss
did not see thirty Conrederates during the
whole day, and yet It waa twice more sup
plied with ammunition. It fired away at
least twelve thjoasaad bullets, aad yet only
killed two Rebel skirmishers.

We propose to oaTer to our readers a few
inttancea ot hair-breadth escapes by which
various human beings have been saved from
death:
Col. Gilmore, relatiag a fight la which he
figured, saya la his "Four Years ia the Sad
dle." "Turning half round ia my saddle,
to call oa my mea, I received a sudden shock
and felt deadly sick, aad at the same instant
I saw a man trail his gun aad run oft. I
killed him before he had goae three steps.
The ball bad goae through two coats and
stuck in a pack of cards In my leftside pock'
et. They were quite new, the wrapper not
having been broken open. Tha suits were
each distinct. The bullet passed through
all, stopping la the last card, which waa the
ace of spades."
Such another literal Illustration of the
phrase, "Within aa ace of death," Is not
upon record; but hair-breadth escapes are
common in war.
At the battle of Laon, 8teflens saw a shell
strike a horse of a Prussian ofllcer. Enter
ing near the shoulder, it caused the poor
animal to make a convulsive spring and
throw its rider, the fragments or the shell
being scattered on all sides, white the rider
jumped from the ground unhurt.
During the Crimean war, Col. AVyndham.
dispatched to find out how matters were
going in the first attack oa the Redan, saw
a soldier walking along the trench two or
three yards ahead or him. Presently a
round-shot came flying over the parapet,
and the man was hidden from view by the
dust. When it subsided, the colonel was
astonished to find himself beside a living
man, whose countenance presented a curi
ous admixture or fright and joy, as, scratch
ing his head he exclaimed,
"Why, dash my buttons, that was amaz
ing nigh!"
"Aye, aye, my boy," responded the colo
nel, "we'd much better be digging trenches
at three cents a rod in Norfolk I"
To which his fellow-countryman only re
plied,
"What I arc yew tew from Norfolk!"'
Amazingly nigh death, although in bliss
fill ignorance or the fact, was the Confeder
ate statf-ofllcer marked down by a North
erner's rifle, and only aaved by the officer
commanding the platoon happening to rec
ognize in him a client ot the Insurance of
flee of which be was secretary; and strik
ing up the leveled weapon, said, "Don't
hoot.! we've got a policy on bim !"
Dr. Brydon, the sole English survivor or
the retreat from Cabul. during the last Af
ghanistan war, was quite aware or the nir
rowness or his escape, but could never un
derstand how it came about. After a long
aud terrible ride, be was just congratulat
ing himselt upon having at last got clear or
the enemy, when he round himself pursued
by a solitary horseman. He had but a bro
ken sword wherewith to defend himself,
and with which he managed to intercept a
cut at his head directed with such force that
it cleft through the base or bis blade and
left only the hilt, which the doctor hurled
iu his assailant's face; and the next mo
ment the Afghan cut through Brydon's
head-piece, and the magazine be had that
morning placed inside it. Unharmed, hair
stunned, and hopeless, he mechanically
stooped to recover his fallen rein, when to
his surprise and relief, bis roe turned away
and gallopped off, leaving the doctor lodrag
himseir to Jelalabad.
The sword or Justice Is not always right
ly directed, and sometimes comes near per
petrating murder. A young New Yorker,
named Wells, went one evening to Booth's
Theatre. Taken with avlolentfltof cough
ing he left the theatre, intending to go
home; but after going some distance it
came on snowing so fast that he retraced
his steps. As be strode along, two men
camo rushing down the street, one or them
dropping a gold watch and chain, which
Wells picked up and then went alter the
loser, running Into the arms of a policeman,
who marched bim off to the station to ex
plain matters. Presently a messenger ar
rived in hot baste, saying the prisoner was
wanted at the Filib Avenue Hotel. Wells
was taken there, and brought face to race
with a man lying on a lounge, covered with
blood.
"Is this the man that stabbed you ?" ask
ed the officer.
"It is," said the poor fellow, falling back,
never to speak again.
Wells was tried for the murder, found
guilty, and sentenced to be banged ; and
hanged he would have been, If a fortnight
before the day of his execution, a prisoner
in Sing-Sing had not confessed, on bis death
bed, that be had robbed the man ot his
watch, then stabbed him and run off, after
wards dropping the watch as be ran.
Yet mon singular was the escape or a
young Shropshire lady from an Ignominious
death. Staying in Paris during the Reign
or Terror, she was dragged, with other un
fortunate "aristocrats," before one or the
tribunals. She pleaded that she waa an
Englishwoman ; but was oa the point of bc-
ing hurrleu out to tho waiting trumbil,
when one or the judges asked her what
province in England she was a native of
In her fright she exclaimed, "Salop," a re
ply greeted by a general shout and clapping
or hands, followed by an order to let her
go; and, amid cries of "Salope!" "Sal
opo '." the dazed girl was bustled Into the
street, lo run home, wondering that her
head was still on her shoulders, little think
ing that by uttering the word "Salop" she
had eflectually rebutted the notion or being
one or the hated aristocrats, thanks to
"Salope" being the word then used to des
ignate one of the most depraved of her
sex.
Another remarkable escape of that terri
ble time was that or M . de Chateaubrun, for
ho was not only condemned, but actually
awaited his turn at the guillotine, standing
sixteenth In a line or twenty. Thaflfteenth
beid had fallen, when the macula got out
or order, and the five bad to wait until It
was repaired. The crowd pressed forward
to see what was going on, and as It began
to grow dark, M. de Chateaubrun found
himself gradually thrust into the rear ol the
spectators ; so be wisely slipped away, and
meeting a maa simple enough or charitable
enough, to. take his word that a wag had
tied bia bands aad run of with his hat, had
his' hands set free aad managed to reach a
safe biding place. A few day later be put
himseir beyond the reach of the executioner.
A saake oeeo prevented athler from
mittiug worse thaa theft. A woman of
Oude, aijj her daughter, once alighted at
tne station at juarani, ana airea a eanvey
ance to take them to their village. Whea
they had gone some bait dozen miles oa
their way, the driver palled apta a lonely
spot and demanded their jewelry; aad, up

hicle and seized the trinkets. The be
thinking himself that dead women would

THE TRABE WITH MEXICO
Aad Need ef a Reciprocity Treaty
litical Oatleak.
Senator Warner Miller, or New York, ar
rived in the city yesterday and Is stopping
at the Leland Hotel. Ho has just returned
from Mexico and California, where be has
been traveling with Gen. Anson McCook,
Amos Townsend, of Ohio, and Congress
man Wadswortb, of New York, since the
adjournment or Congress. They entered
Mexico at Vera Cruz, and went thence to
the City or Mexico. They then traveled
partly by rail and stage to Monterey, and
finally Into Texas, and by the Southern Pa
cific railroad to California. In Mexico they
-found a wonderful change being effected by
the new railroads. When away from the
railroad the condition of the country was
much the same as 300 years ago. The rail
roads were chiefly American enterprises,
and all the intelligent people of the country
welcomed their Introduction. The old feci
ing of hostility to the United States wasdy
Ing out very rapidly.
"What are your impressions or the indus
trial condition of Mexico, and the prospect
ive trade between that country and the Uni
ted States:" was asked tbe Senator,
"The condition with regard to that is
this," he replied, "a great part of the trade
with Mexico has been with England and
Germany. Last year tbe trade of tbe Uni
ted States with Mexico was equal to that or
all other countries combined. That came
about in this way : Under the concessions
granted to the railroads now building they
are permitted to bring in all railroad sup
plies free or duty during the construction
ot the road, and for several years after.
"The principal imports into Mexico have
been railroad supplies, and wheu the rail
roads are completed this trade will fall oft.
runlets some reciprocity ircalv is mad- as
has been proposed. At present the great
bulk of tho manufactured goods are Import
ed rrom Germany, England and France.
Our imports from Mexicoconsist very large,
ly or hides and mahogany, aud other tropi
cal woods, together with some coffee and
tobacco, all or which arc admitted into the
United States free or duty tinder our pres
ent tariff. The proposed treaty with Mexi
co would enlarge the list. Last year tobac
co and sugar were tho only articles or im
portance. It would admit iuto Mexico from
tbe United States a large number of arti
cles free ot duty. II this were rat I lied it
would throw thelradool Mexico into the
hands of the United States, and take It
from the English and Germans, who now
hold it,
"I don't see how tho United States in to
lose any thing by such a reciprocity treaty
because a large portion or our goods go in
the free list. Somo or our merchants think
that tbe list or goods which arc lclng taken
by Mexico without duty is not as large as
it should be. But It should be remembered
by our people that tbe revenues or Mexico
are small and arc derived almost entirely
rrom Its duty on foreign goods. If the free
list Is too large it would seriously cripple
her business. A treaty would do much to
increase the trade between Mexico and our
Territories, and would be ofbenclit to both
countries."
"Will there be a reciprocity treaty'
"1 don't know what the result will be.
When tbe railroads tunning Into Mexico are
completed it will necessitate a much larger
trade because It will Increase the facilities
for such trade and Increase the demands and
wants or the people. The principal objec
tion comes from the fact that it admits su
gar and tobacco free. Mexico produces
little more sugar than is required for the
consumption or her own people. It will be
a long time before she can increase this un
less Americans go tbero and start the grow
ing or sugar cane and the manufacture or
sugar. The tobacco grown there is of au
entirely different character from that grown
in the United States and would not inter
fere with that in this country If admitted
free. Aside from this such a reciprocity
treaty would be or great benefit to both
countries. Witboutsuch a treaty, the trade
will remain in the hands or England and
Germany."
In California the condition or the wheat
fields and vineyards, the Senator said, was
excellent. Tho people there felt jubilant,
and tbe largest crops In the history or the
State would be produced.
Turning to politics the Senator said that
he bad very little Information, having been
out or the couutry so, and much or the time
where" there were no newspapers. But, as
far as be was able to observe, he thought
there was a very good feeling among the
Republicans. Cleveland's election was title
solely to the failure of Republicans to vote,
Garfield carried the State iu I860 by over
20,000, and in 1881, when everybody predict
ed disaster, the Republicans aga'n carried
it on the election or Secretary or State by
13,000. ir tbey did not carry it this year it
would be a very close fight and demonstrate
that the State was ralr fighting ground for
1834. The factional fights among the Dem
ocrats were just as bad as before their last
attempt to coalesce. The Republicans ought
not to rely on Democratic divisions, but act
harmoniously. They carried the State
when the Democrats were united, and II
nnited now, as ho believed they would be,
would do so again.
"Will tbe tariff come before the next Con
gress?" was asked.
"I would not be surprised. The Demo
crats want to avoid it, but that depends on
whom they elect speaker or the House."
"Is Mr. Tilden a candidate for Presi
dent I"
"Dana has been in California, and making
a tour or tbe country, and I have inferred
rrom what I have heard that Dana is still
for Tilden."
In conclusion the Senator thought that
the factional divisions In the Republican
party would be healed, and tbe old lea Jers
of the same dropped. Tbe old fight would
not come up again, and the Republicans
were preparing to go into tho next Presi
dential fight united. lnlir Octan.
THE WASHIN6T8N MBNVMENT.
Po-1 Probably few persons outside of Wash
ington realize that Ihc time has come to
speak respectfully or the Washington
Monument. That unlghtly column aa It
was for so many years which used to
stand like a big stone stump between the
Tonic portico or tbe Treasury "and tbe
broad glittering shallows or the Potomac,
has wltbiu the past two years risen Into a
stately obelisk, whose marble sides gleam
In the sun a simple and Imposing shaft,
which will one day be majestic, rhe par
agraphed, who arc joking about it. are be
hind the age. It is now higher than any of
the Egyptian pyramids except that or the
Cheops and its companion pyramid. King
Sli.ilr.vs ; and when It is completed it will
be more than 100 Icet higher than either of
these, and will not only be tbe highest
known structure in the world, but, so It Is
said, tbo highest structure which is known
to have been ever raised by tbe band of
man. The great spire or the Strasbnrg
Cathedral ruus up to the height ot 4CS feet ;
the height or the tower of the Cathedral
at Cologne is but 511 fret; St. Peter's from
the pavement to the base or the lantern is
418 feet, and the Milan Cathedral is 333 feet
high to the very top or the statue of the
Madonna. The Washington Monument Is
now 340 feet above tbe floor of the shaft.
When completed, as it will be in December
1S, at the latest, It will be 553 feel high,
or more than 40 feet higher than the very
tip or the slender plnaclcs at Cologae.'
The comparison is an awkward one, per
haps, but It has its uses nevertheless a
plain shaft is not to be compared architec
turally, with a cathedral or pyramid ; but
it Is of some interest to remember that
while the tower of the Cologne Cathedral
will probably taper into thcalr with a very
small diameter, the Washington Monument
at 500 fret, or almost exactly the same
height, wlir sho.v a width or thirty-flvc
fret on each or its four races. At the base,
each or these tides has a width or thirty
five feet, showing that tbe tapering of tbe
column is very gradual. As one stands
.near the foot and looks up, tbe column
seems like a great tower of rock growing
out or the earth and reaching tbe sky. Hy
December the monument will probably be
about 4W fret high.
Tho plan or a monument to Washington
In the city bearing his name was, as many
will remember, formally approved by Con
gress in a resolution passed less than a fort
night after his death, and which requested
that bis family permit his body to be de
posited under it. Tbo monument was to
be erected by tbe United States, but noth
ing was done. In 183.1 an association of
leading citizens here was formed, which,
having collected enough money by private
subscription to begiu work, secured the
site from Congress In 1843 and laid the
corner stone on July 4tb or that year. In
the eight years following, the shaft waa
carried to the height or 150 feet, where
work was suspended for lack of funds, and
no stoni was laid on tbe shaft from that
time until August Sth, 1880, an iuterval or
twenty-four years.

To tU editor of tit KaijU :
Harmony In tbe Republican party and no
proscription on account or prohibition is
good, at least that Is what 1 thought when
I saw it In tho Eaglb. I was glad to see
it. While I think (to use a slang phrase)
tbe EiGLB is a little off, sometimes, that
article commends itself to tbe careful con
sideration of every man that wishes to have
tbe party sueceed this fall. There has been
too much of this "reading out" of the par
ty by men who should have been kicked
out themselves." We saw that plan tried in
Sedgwick last fail by men who claimed they
were the only true Republicans lu tbccoua
ty, notwithstanding they joined tbe enemy
aad worked for tbe success of the democ
racy, all because tbeir souls were so narrow
contracted that tbey wished to have the
party correspond to tbeir calibre and never
advance oae step. I think those Republic
an who elected Gllck are sick of their man
as far aa he ha gof, for I do not think St.
Joba, la hi four years, made himself quite
so ridiculous aa Gilt k has in five months.
aad if he should have to copy a few more
procbuaatlons, and bave another Dodge
City affair, you could not find 300 men In
Sedgwick county who would admit they
voted for bim.
I think tha Gllck Republicans will be like
tbe Prodigal Son: be glad to get back and
feed oa, Republican busk this fall. Tbey

thaa It was last fall, and thelretect-

A RELIC OF THE MEXICAN WAR.
A Jacksonville man has just come into
possession of a rare and interesting relic of
masonic and national history. It Is a beau
tiful masonic apron captured by a Georgian
artillery officer In tbe Mexican war, from
the famous Gen. Antonio Lopez do Santa
Anna at the time of bis memorable retreat,
when not only his private baggagobut his
wooden leg was left behind in bis sudden
flight.
Gen. Santa Anna, it will be remembered,
was a remarkable man ; born in Jalapa, in
1708, he began his military career in 1821,
against tbo royalists, and after some suc
cess was given the command or Vera Cniz.
He was ever a disturber, achieving distinc
tion ami being put down and disgraced on
ly to becoino aleader and popular hero once
more. Inl837, defending Vera Cruz against
the French, be lost his leg. In 1810 bo be
came Generalissimo aud Provisional Presi
dent or Mexico, and with 20,000 men ad
vanced to meet Geu. Taylor.it Buena Vista,
lie was defeated, raised a now army, and at
Cerro Gordo, April 13, 1847, was put to ig
nominious flight, Iu which the masonic
apron which Mr. Wcllcr possesses was cap
tured, with other property, by. the Americans.
The apron is or white latin with a back
or silk. At the top Is a star embroidered In
gold, within which Is the mystic letter G;
beneath this Is an embroidered scroll resem
bling a Maltese cross, on cither side or
which, iu largo Roman characters, are tbe
golden letters M. If., the significance of
which no local craftsman has interpreted.
Beneath this on the apron's race are a large
compas and a square, within which are a
mallet and trowel In gold, suspended by a
silver chain. The apron Is otherwise dec
orated with sprays or acacia in green and
gold silk floss. I'loriU Timt$-Journal.

Pba-nix park assassins are lu bad sbspe.
Tbey have been notified that police pro

The coroner's jury in tbe Brooklyn
bridge accident brought In a verdict charg
ing the bridge managers wltb tbe respon

that ol a Democratic candidate for the

It is said woodpeckers in Norway bore
holes in telegraph poles, under the Im

Two gentlemen, one of them a legislator,
strolled carelessly past a saloon. After
tbey bad passed twenty steps beyond the
saloon, the legislator stopped and aald :
"Lot's go back and get a drink."
"I thought you promised your wife not
to drink white you were In Austin r"
"No, I didn't promise that. I promised
when I came to a saloon I would go past
it like a.man. I bave passed tbo saloon ;
now let us go back and get a drink as a re
ward for keeping my promise."
A movement has been begun In New
York, tbe object or which Is, "to suppress
the personal column of tbe New York
lltratd." At a meeting on Sunday last,
one of tbe speakers said: "Tbe most
casual observer must know that more moral
degradation has been wrought and more
havoc and discord caused In happy families
by means of this column than anything ex
cept the rum shop." Another character
ized it as "the most pestllcrous concern
that society bos ever writhed under."
The lltrald Is pretty strongly entrenched,
but tbe parties seem to be In earnest, and
propose to ask tbe postmaster general to
prohibit its circulation In the malls until It
stops tbe personal column.

Here Is a very readable lie from the pen
of Eugene Field:
A gentleman who came in from Omaha
yesterday tells a story about George II.
Miller, etliiorof the Omaha Uerald, which
Illustrates the sad condidlon into which
dyspepsia has brought tbe proud man.
Having carelessly eaten a broiled snipe
just before going to bed the other night,
Dr. Miller dreamed that he was dead and
was going to bis eternal reward. He halt
cd at the gate of Heaven and asked per
mission or Peter.
"Who are you" inquired Peter.
"I am Dr. George II. Milter, editor or
the Omaha Herald, Omaha, Nebraska," re
plied tbe eminent journalist.
"Miller, the Omaha editor," sneered
Peter. "Well, I have got strict orders not
to let you iu bcrc. So move away from
the gate.es fast as ever you can."
Dr. Miller sadly bent his footsteps to
wards Purgatory, but, here, too, on divulg
ing bis identity he was denied admission.
As a last resort he rapped on tbe asbestos
door of Hell, and the arch fiend responded.
"Who arc you r" asked Satan wltb a bit
ter leer.
"I am Dr. George H. Miller, editor of
tho Herald, Omaha, Nebraska," answered
the homeless soul.
Hearing these words, Satan popped back
Into his fircry abode, slammed the door
quickly, and from the inside informed tbe
journalist that there was no room for him
in Hell. Dr. Stiller pleaded to be let In,
but bis pleading were all fn vain. Satan
stirred up the phosphorous fires tantalizing-
ly, and bawled out to bim that be wonld
have to spend eternity somewhere else,
Dr. Miller sighed regretfully as be turned
fcway. "It's mighty tough on a fellow,"
said be ruefully, "to have to return to
Omaha."
THAB. STEVENS AN0 MR. C0NKLIN6.
Years ago, when Mr. Conkllng snd Thad.,
Stevens were members of the House, and
tbe latter Chairman of tbe Committee on
Ways and Means, one morning be reported
back au appropriation bill wltb an Item
omitted In which Mr. Conkllng bad some
Interest. Soon Mr. Conkllng presented
himself before the Chairman and rather
peremptorily demanded tbe reason why.
Old Thad. looked the gentleman over In
silence for a moment, and then replied :
"Young man, unscrew that curl, so that
you can get your feet down on the floor,
and I will talk wltb you."
ANBLO BATTLE-FIELD 8F THE PLAINS.
Two miles from Mandan has been found
a vast burial ground or some pre-bletorle
age, which embraces fully one hundred
seres, and Is filled with the remains of
some giant race. Tbe ground has the ap
pearance of long trenches filled with bod
ies, horses, pottery, etc. The pottery Is of
a dark material, beautifully and delicately
finished, and as light as wood, showing tbe
work or a people skilled la tbe art, and In
a btgh state ol civilization. Tbe burial
ground Is evidently tbe scene of a grand
battle, where thousands of men and horses
were slain, and marks tbe resting plaee of
some prehistoric Nation. An old Indian,
oa being asked who they were, said be
knew nothing of them ; they were there
before the red man. Jaffa Arg:
THE
BIBLE PERVADINfl ALL LITERA
TURE.
It baa been strikingly said that if Shake
speare s work were destroyed every line
that be ever wrote could be recovered from
tbe pages of other author and the speech
or the people. So, every text in the Bible
bos been quoted by somebody a proof of
illustration, to point a moral or adorn a
tale. Even our secular literature Is sweet
ened and elevated by thoughts and ex
pressions from the scriptures. It would be
as Impossible to subtract the Bible from
our modern .English literature, which I
read by everybody, a to uabraid the sun
beams, and extract tbe yellow orvloletray
from the tide of light that fill the solar
system with warmth and eheer. Aad peo

The refusal of Gladstone to appoint the
queea's son, the Duke or Albany, aa gov.
ernor general of Canada, basglvea rise to
curious comment In England, and it Is said
to be unprecedented. No maa lu Xagland,
but one, tbey say would bave dared to do
such a thing, and that oae was tbe man who
did It- Of course none other than publle
reasons Influenced tbo premier, but it gives
occasion for people with fertile Imagina
tions to see In It a retaliation for a snub be
received during Beaconsleld's time In be
ing left out la tbe invitations to one of tbe
royal marriages. Another set see In It bis
determination not to accept a peerage but
to die a commoner. There Is sufficient
grounds both In tbe chandler of tbe queea's
soa aad his youth, for supposing that Glad
stone gave tbe true reason, when he told
him that he was too young aad had had too
little experience In public affairs to fill tbe
place. It was the fact, aad why not the
