Uncle Joe, Who Wan "Cap'n"Then, Liked
His Chicken Done Hrown.
j "It was a wretched night back in
1808," said Uncle Joo.
Undo Joe's stories of tho war were
?things to bo looked forward to and ro
momborcd. Ho had served during the
cntiro four years as a commissioned ofli
jcer and knew whereof ho spoko, having
an excellent memory and an inimitably
[humorous way of telling tho adventures
[of himself and his men.
"It was in Missouri in the winter of
1803 on a cold raw night that I, tho offi?
cer of tho day, prepared about midnight
to make, with half a dozen of tho guard,
what is called tho 'grand round,' or,
more plainly speaking, tho visiting of
the soldiers doing piokot duty nt thoir
different posts. Wo were on short ra?
tions, and every man of us, officer or
private, longed for a good, square meal
to braoo him up against tho raw, damp
coldness of tho night. As I was about
to spring Into my saddlo a low voico at
my shoulder said:
'1 'Cap'n, how would a supper of chick?
en and honey taste?'
I "I swung hastily around and behold
tho speaker. Ho was a fellow called
Lang, one of our most valuable spies,
and in some respects a mighty clover
fellow, but in?oh, well, I'll lot it go
by saying that his moral nature had
uovor been overdeveloped. Ho was a
short, thickset man, with twinkling
black eyes oud otherwise the most thor?
oughly impassivo faoe I over looked
into. It was said of him that ho would
J slip into tho butternut suit of tho rebel
and make himself much at homo in
Lee's army. Ho was hail fellow well
jmet with all tho men and camo back to
tho Union lines possessed of tho most
invaluable information. Ho had expo
[riencod thrilling adventures and was a
man of intrepid courage*.
" 'Cap'n,' he repeated as ho stood be
?side mo that cold night, 'how would a
supper of chicken and honey taste?' ?
" 'Excellent, Lang, excellent,' I ro
plied, thinking of our limited supply
of smoked meat and hard tack. 'Have
" 'No, but I might get some, I reckon,
tif I looked round a bit,' he drawled, laz
jily kicking up clay with tho too of bis
boot. I saw immediately that ho meant
to go out of camp, find a farmhouse mid
help himself. Such things are not un?
heard of in tho army.
"'Nonsense, Lnng,' said I. 'You
?would bo killed sure if you went. Tho
pickets are on extra sharp lookout to?
night, and it 's altogether too dangerous.
You would never como back alive.'
"With that I sprang into my saddle
and rodo away, followod by my men.
'' We Were gono two or three hours,
making tho rounds of the pickets, and
a moro miserable ride I had seldom tak?
en. I was chilled to tho bono and hun?
gry and my men likewise. As I rode
'back toward camp the glow of a bonfire
in a remote corner caught my eye, and
I immediately turned my weary horse
toward it. Before tho crackling heap
sat Lang, calmly frying chicken, while
,at his side reposed a hive of honey. Ho
looked up and smiled grimly.
" 'Supper's most ready, cap'n,' ho
said, touching Iiis apology for a cap.
'Make yourselves to home, gentlemen.,
" 'Lang.' said I sternly, 'didn't I tell
you not to go?'
" 'No, cap'n,' he replied ;ns he con?
tinued to cut up the plump fowl in his
hand; 'you didn't say I couldn't go, al?
though, if I remember correctly, you
j 'didn't exactly advise it on the SOOro of
I its being dangerous, but a man what's
Jled the life 1 have ain't goin to let a
jlittlc thing like that stop him when
he's hungry,' and he hold toward mo
the plump log of a chicken nicely
"'Lang,' said I, 'tell mo how you
" 'No very great matter,' he. replied,
proceeding with his culinary art. 'When
you'd gone, I walks along quiet to tho
outpost and finds a picket walkin up
and down like he owned tho earth, so I
flops down on my stomach alongside a
fence, Bein a dark night, as it is, Mr.
Pieket cornea along and don't, suspect
that fence so of much as harboriu a
mouse. Minute he gets half a rod away
over that fence I goes lightninlike
and takes a scoot into some woods closo
by and then goes about my business.'
I , " 'Go on,' said I, with my mouth full
of chicken and honey.
"Lang continued: 'You see, I know
this country might}' well, so I makes
tracks for a farmhouse close by where
they keeps plenty of chickens. When I
opens tho gate to go in, along comes a
jdog. Well, cap'n, that's tho only dog I
jever met with that I couldn't either
senro or make friends with. No, sir,
that dog wouldn't take no stock in
bluffs, so I whips out my revolvor and
lays him out. At that up goes a win?
dow, and a man begins to yell to find
out who's then-. "Put your head inside
Ithat window and keep it there, or I'll
knock it off for you," says I. "Now
Jim," I continues, "you just watch
[that window, and if tho follow sticks
Ibis bead ont don't wait to bo ceremo
Inionsliko, but just firo. I'm goin to
iget some chicken and honey." Course
'thero wasn't no Jim along, but that
fellow in tho bouse had to bo kept out
of the way; so, being a dark night, I
?just bluffed him about thero being more
?than just mo around. Yon bot he keeps
[ his head iuside, and I goes to the ohick
I en house and helps myself to soino plump
' iyoung codgers, and takin a beehive
, on tho other shoulder makes tracks for
tbo camp tho way I como.

""?TrlE PEAR MIDGE.
The Damage Done by This Fest and the
Beat .Way to Hold It In Check.
The pear midge is one of tho insects
?which have been introduced into tho
United States within recent years and
aro causing n good deal of injury in the
Tho adult insect or fly is described as
much resembling a diminutive mosqui?
to. It makes its appearance very early
in tho season before the pear blossoms
open. Tho female deposits her eggs in
tho latter by piercing tho petals or tho
calyx. Tho midge larva) live on the
substanco of tho pear tissue, destroying
the seed and cheeking tho growth of the
fruit, which decays and drops in early
snmmor. Onr illustration shows o sound
young pear and one deformed by tho pear
Tho great difficulty encountered in
fighting this insect lies in the fact that
there is no period at which it is within
reach of ordinary insecticides. Tho oggs
nru laid in the bud beforo it opens, ami
tho young larva? get into the heart of
tho fruit before it is fully formed. Tho
adult fly does not feed and is hence be?
yond our reach. It is only after tho in?
jury is done that tho insect goes under?
ground and within reach of destructive
As n preventive measure it is recom?
mended that tho trees be examined as
soon as tho pears aro well set and that
every infested or suspected poor be
picked off and completely destroyed)

benefit trees as well as to kill tho in?
sects. As soon as proper, say early in
August, sow crimson clover. This will
use up tho potash not required by the
fruit trees aud will store nitrogen as
well as occupy the ground. Early tho
following spring turn this sod under as
deeply as may bo proper. It should bo
done before tho pear burin aro developed
in order to head off and destroy any
midges then in tho pupa state near tho
Burfoco of the se.il. This practice is at
tho same time the best for tho benefit of
tho orchard.?St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
JOHN BULL IN AFRICA.
Th? Crafty Old Gentleman Now Owns About
1,400,0(11) Square .lilies.
The latest acquisition of African ter?
ritory gives (treat Britain an unbroken
line, across tho length of Africa from
tho Mediterranean and the Nilo to tho
extreme point of the continent. In all,
this territory, held in various ways,
from Capo Colony up to tho "occupa?
tion" of Egypt, is in extent about 1,100,
000 square miles and has a population
of !H>, 000,000. In the Nilo valley it in?
cludes incomparably tho best of north
Africa. In Uganda it holds tho key to
the lakes of central Africa, nearly as
large as our own lako system. Tho new
treaty gives it tho high land west of
Lako Tanganyika, considerably higher
and healthier than tho eastern, in Ger?
Tho now conquests of tho British
South Africa company add tho great ta?
blelands of the interior of subtropical
Africa, in much of which white men
live. Lastly, thero is Capo Colony, tho
only vital European settlement in all
Africa. As it stands this great high?
way hold:; two third, of nil of Africa in
which Europeans can live and car ry on
efficient administration. It has the
most fertile tract in the continent in
Egypt, its healthiest in Capo Town, its
greatest gold mines aud tin- only region
from which tropical Africa can be eon
Still more important is its relation to
African water courses. A steamer can
start at Alexandria and run, when the
mahdi's successor is clonrod away, to a
point on Albert Edward Nyanza, 125
miles from Lake Tanganyika. This runs
to within 70 miles of Lake Nyassa. From
this lake the Shire river, broken at
Mnrohisou falls, descends to the Zam?
besi and the Indian ocean. From a nav?
igable point on the Congo is less Minn
100 miles to Lake Tanganyika. The
Aruwini runs as near the Nile. It is
possiblo to start at the mouth of tho Zam?
bezi and reach the mouth of tho K< :igo
or Nile with less than 200 miles of hind
travel, and the key and center to this
great system is now in English hands.
Where Milk Freesen In the Milking.
William H. Hart of 1817 Walnut
street, who has traveled in nearly every
country of the world, says that he no?
where* experienced such extreme cold as
in tho interior of Labrador. To illus?
trate the fearful frigidity to minds ac?
customed to Philadelphia's mild tem?
perature Mr. Hart says that before milk?
ing the reindeer the milkmaid places
a pieco of string in tho pail, allowing
ono end to hang over tho side. By the
time tho milking is finished, Mr. Hart
avors, the lacteal fluid is frozen solid,
and tho maid takes hold of tho string
and lifting the frozen milk from tho
pail throws it over her shoulder and
marches to her hut. Economy of pails
