MARCHED AKl) MUNCHED.
The Soldiers Who Didn't Steal the bl
Apples Ate Them.
A. reprimand which takes the form
of a joke is sometimes more effectual to
than a burst of anger. Such an exam
ple was furmshed by a Confederate at
ofcer and described by T. 0. Moore In K
his "Anecdotes of General Cleburne." a,
The southern army. snarching across p:
the mountains of Georgia. had Its sup- 1
ply trains cut off and was obliged to
live upon the country.
Apples. chestnufs and persimmons
were plenty. but the army had strict
orders not to depredate upon private
property. One day I was trudging
along in the rear of General Gran
bury's brigade when I saw down the
road General Cleburne sitting on the
top rail of a fence. while below him tc
lay five or six bushels of ie red ap- k
ples. Near by stood a number of sol- u
diers, who looked as mean as men a<
could look. al

Cleburne. who remarked: n

The invitation was accepted. the V

BATTLE WITH A BOG.

Readers of "Lorna Doone" can never
forget the terrible drowning of Carver
In the bog. That death trap is still t

not long ago, a valuable huntin horse
was engulfed In the mLre, and his rider
barely escaped with his life. S. Bar

from a stmlar bog. tells of It in his
"Book of the West." The author was

General Harrison's Objections to
Monuments to "Vest."
As a general thing, one of the first
duties of the wife of an Incoming pres
klent and one of the things she usual
ly enjoys heartily is to attend to such
rearrangements and refurnishings of
the White Uouse as may be .lecessary
or advisable according to her person
al taste, the size and customs of her
family, and so on.
I remember one occasion. writes
golonel William ii. Crook In the Phil
adelphia Saturday Evenin= lust. when
Mrs. Harrison had tinally decided
upon some slight architectural changes
I and had brought her nrchitect's plans
to the president and asked his opinion 2
of them. General Harrison studied
the drawings with care and noticed a
that several niches were left, each
plainly marked. At last he said:
-Well, my dear. here is a place for
Lincoln. and here is a place for
Grant's bust. And you have left
three places for Vest." Then he add
ed, with well assumed indignatIon. "I
am decidedly opposed to so many
ionuments to Vest-in the White
Mrs. Harrison hastened to explain
what her husband, of course. knew all
the time-that the word "Vest." was
the architect's contraction for vesti
bule. of which there were three on the
plans, whereupon the president said
he was satisfied and handed the draw
ings back to her. with a twinkle in his
keen blue eyes.
A FIERCE ANATHEMA.
The Pious Wish a Woman Flung at
Jean Paul Richter.
Jean Paul Richter once observed
that if a lady officer wanted to give
the word "Halt!" she would do It in
the following strain: "You soldiers, all
of you, now mind what I say. I order
you as soon as I have done speaking
to stand still, every one of you, on the
spot where you happen to be. Don't
you hear me? Halt, I say, all of you!"
Upon this a strong minded woman
made the following comment: "Now.
M. Jean. it was an unlucky day on
which you wrote that sentence. May
you never hear anything but that lit
tie. concise word 'No' from every rosy
pair of lips you meet. May you halt
twifeless through life. May your but
tons be snappish. your strings knotty
and your stockings full of holes. May
your bootjack be missing. your feet
corny and your sharing water cold.
your razor dull, your hair stand up.
your collar lie down. May your beard
be percupiny. your 'vbskers thinly
settled and your mustache curl the
wrong way. lay your coffee be mud
fdy, your tozast smoky and your tea
water bewitched, and, with a never
dying desire for affection. may you
crawl through creation a meek, miser
able, nasty. forlorn. fidgety. fussy. ri
diculous, ruined. dejected old bachelor."
High Sounding Names.
Writing in his Paris paper on the
growing custom on the part of parents
to give their children "high sounding"
names, Clement Tautel says: "When
the boy Is old enough to understand
he rebels ate being compelled to carry
through life a name like Anacreon or
Hipparchus. But he has company. I
know a deputy whose parents named
him Franklin. The name In Itself Is
not so bad, but he has two brothers,
Voltaire and Socrates respectively.
Fancy this scene In the nursery:
Franklin howling because Voltaire has
broken his toy, while Socrates laughs
t bo-th. The mother as peacemaker
shouts, 'Stop. Socr-ates. r you'll be
punished." In a narrow street In 3Mar
seil'es one broIlIng hot day I saw a
women spanking a child, shouting- In
anger, 'You naughty Epaminondes; I'll
teach you. Epaminondes!' I could nev
er think of the Theban general after
that without laughing."
