Stanton. Who Waq Very IlL In Savannah.
I Frank L. St;ron, the popular Georgia
poet, always speaks up for General Sher

of that famous commander's methods.
The story told by Stanton has never
found its way into print, but it deserves
a place among the minor incidents and
rominisceneces of the war period.
hen Savannah fll. " said Stanton,
"I was a- little chap about 8 years old.
The confusion and tumult in the streets
frightened me, and I was afraid to go
ver- far from the house.
" Young as I was, I understood that
something very serious had occurred.
Instead of seeing Confederate soldiers
parading the streets with a few Federal
prisoners I saw thousands of Federals
swarming through the town, and they
had a great many Confederates under

That was plain. even to a child.
"My father was very ill, in the last
stages of consumption, and my mother:
was worn out with anxiety and the
cares of the household. Our neighbors
were panic stricken, and everybody
seemed to be expecting some awful ca
"Penned up there as we had been for a
long time, without supplies and with
out any money except worthless Confcd
erate currency, the outlook was gloomy
enough. How was my sick father to get
the things he needed? That was the
problem with my mother.
"Somebody told General Sherman
about my father and mentioned the fact
that he was a kinsman of a very distin
guished and powerful officer on the Un
"One day when I entered my father's
room I found three Federal officers sit
ting there in pleasant conversation with
the invalid and my mother.
"I was scared and started to run, but
one of the strangers, a middle aged man
with a roughly trimmed brown beard,
called me back. He asked my name, and
before I knew it had me on his knee,
and he said so many nice things to me:
that I took quite a fancy to him.
"He was General Sherman, and he
had called with two of his staff officers
to see my father. When the visitors
left, the general told my mother at the
door that he knew all about the incon
veniences of a siege and insisted upon
sending from the army stores something!
that would suit a sick man.
"Under the circumstances such an
offer could not be declined. It was a
picnic for the children of the family, I
can tell you.
"After that, while the general was in
the city, something was sent to the
house every day. Brandy, wine, loaf
sugar, lemons, beef, chickens, coffee,
vegetables and I don't know what else
came in generous quantities. We had
plenty for te family and for our near
"Nor was that all. The general sent
one of the best physicians in the hos

father were made far more comfortable
than we had hoped for under the ad
verse conditions of those dark days.
"General Sherman came to the house,
once more before he left Savannah. I
cannot remember what he said, but he
was sympathetic and he said something
about the pleasure it gave him to aid a
relative of his distinguished friend at
"At that time I was very fond of a
showy uniform, and it vexed my child

always dressed so shabbily. His staff
oficers presented a better appearance,
and some of them were really gorgeous
in their spectacular rig.
"The other boys and the negroes
agreed with me that the commander
must be in very hard luck or he would
certainly dress better. Still, I was then
con',inced that he was a wonderfully
wise man. With my pockets full of his
loaf sugar, which I had surreptitiously
abstracted from the pantry, I would
have been ungrateful if I had formed
any other opinion.
"Sherman left the city and marched
onward through the Carolinas, and that
ended the war.
"No, I never saw him again. My fa

my work keeping me so busy that I had
no time to think of the general or any
body else not connected with my immne
diate business. I wish now that I had
seen him before he passed away. As it
is, I can only recall him as he appeared
to my boyish and wondering eyes, un
der circumstances which did not give
me an opportunity to study him. No
matter what may be said of his conduct
in war, I cannot help liking him. He
was a good friend just when we most
needed one. "-Chicago Times-Herald.

FERRYBOATS IN THE WAR.
A Veteran's Recollections of One He Saw
at Fortress Monroe In 1861.
"It is curious, " said a veteran sol
dier, "how some incident or circum
stance may impart to a long familiar
object to which we have never given
any special thought a significance that
makes it always thereafter an object of
particular interest. The East river fer
ryboats impress me in that way now
whenever I see one, and this was
brought about simply by seeing one of
them out of its accustomed waters amid
strange scenes and put to strange uses.
"This was in the fall of 1861, in
Hampton Roads. The regiment that I
served in was aboard a transport there,
waiting with other troops afloat there
to go farther south under convoy of a
fleet of war vessels. There was a great
number of vessels there of all kinds,
steamers and sailing vessels and war
ships, and they made an impressive
show, but certainly the most striking of
any one of them on its first appearance
was an East river ferryboat, the Com
modore Perry. I can see her at this min
ute as she looked then, moving across
the waters of the Roads; she looked so
utterly strange and .mrious there and
amid such surroundings, But she went
here and there with the most perfect
confidence, constantly employed in
transporting stores and troops and
making herself quite as much at home
there as she ever had been among the
currents and eddies of the narrow East
"Other ferryboats were taken down
there. A soldier friend of mine tells
me that later, in the peninsular cam
paign, there was a New York ferryboat
in those waters that was used as a gun
boat, carrying two parrott guns, one at
each end, mounted in the gangways,
where the teams drive in and out. My
own impression is that one or two of
these boats went around Hatteras, into
waters farther south; but, however that
may be, I shall never forget the first
time I saw the Commodore Perry at
Fortress Monroe, and to this day I never
go along South street without a feeling
of the keenest personal interest for every
ferryboat I see on the river. "-New
The London Lancet Says It Is Not Injuri
ens to Smokers.
Referring to the agitation started in
France by a society which acts on the
principle that "tobacco is always use
less, often harmful and sometimes homi
cidal, " The Lancet says: "We agree in
so far that we allow tobacco to be some
times very harmful. It is, of course, a
poison. but so is tea, as also coffee
two vegetable products which are con
sumed by nearly every inhabitant of
either England or France. All three can
bc and very often are abused, but this
does not do away with their reasonable
use. In these days of rush and hurry to
bacco has often a most soothing and
restful effect. The tobacco sold in
France is, to put it nildly, not good,
and although in England it is possible
to buy fairly gcod tobacco it is next
door to impossible to get i:: pure.
"That is to say, it is nearly always
cented or treated in some way so as to
give it an artificial flavor. Cigars are
beyond the purse of any but a rich man,
and as for cigarettes the filth sold as
such is beyond description. A pure to
bacco society would be an admirable in
stitution, and, as for the traders saying
'customers like scented tobacco,' the
customer seldom gets the chance of
smoking anything else. The truth is
that, as in the case of highly scented
tea or soap, it is cheaper to 'fake' infe
ior qualities of stuff than to supply the
real thing. To be unsophisticated an
rtile must be of good quality, but the 4
3raze for cheapness is ruining every
thing, and when people buy cigarettes

wondered at that they get-well, an in

In view of these dicta it is interesting
to note that cigarettes are turned out in

is obligatory to many women, but the suffer
ing is not. This feature of the household bur
dens may soon be removed if women will only
take the trouble to learn how. A few bottles of
