HONESTY OF THE SOLDIER.
Hot rymnte-r Ilobboil During; Morn

Into tho nw llfo of tho soldier, It al
ways socmed to me, that either tho

a man whoso word could bo trusted. I
am willing to admit that In tho prepara

drill and discipline, his word always
Bccmcd to mo as good as gold.
This fact is moro firmly established
for tho reason that with the thousands
of opportunities 1 havo yet to hoar of a
Davmaster being robbed during tho war
by tho sutler, tho volunteer or regular
soldier, and this point stands out In
high relief to thoir credit, for nothing
could havo been moro easy during
thoso days than for ono Boldlor and ono
accomplice, malting themselves inde
pendently rich, had thoy been bo dis
posed. During the last two years tho surviv
ing soldier of tho lato war will no
doubt remember tho small Iron safe
carried by paymasters when thoy camo
to "tho front" to pay off tho troops.,
Thoy wero small, as a matter ot course,
and two men could carry it easily, it
having a handlo on each side for that
'When a paymaster would arrive, ho
would bo given an extra tent in which
to placo tho safoj a guard would bo de

safe in sight, and I well remember an
Incident that'camo under my own view
of that kind. Tho safe in this instance
contained, the paymaster told me, sev
in hundred thousand dollars. An ex
tra tent was assigned him on his or
rivnl. and. a detail of throo men, all ho
asked for, was made to guard tho extra
tent. The guard paced backward and
forward in front of it, but as he could
not possibly see tho rear of it, and only
occanionally its sides, anyone can, read
ily j.eo that it would havo been no diffi
cult matter for two dishonest soldiers
to have cut open tho tent from the rear,
quietly enter It, and carry off tho safe
with nil Its contents, tho guard being
none the wiser. Even the guard could
easily have become nn accomplice) with
Bomo others, and winked at tho rob
bery. After securing the booty, it
could easily havo been hidden away,
to await a future visit; when tho for
tune could havo boon secured and di
vided. This is only ono illustration of tho
ease with which paymasters could have
been robbed, but thcro wero dozens of
other plans that might have beon put

To tho everlasting credit of the sol
diers composing tho federal army dur
ing tho late wur, not a single paymas
ter was robbed by the soldiers them
selves. They did lose money in many
ways; one I believe, lost in gambling
nearly all the contents of his safe; an
immense amount of greenbacks wero
lost by tho sinking of the Sultana on
tho Mississippi, below Memphis, if I re
member correctly, rising into more
than a million of dollars. They lost
money In many other ways, but no sol
dier that I ever heard of, was guilty,
with all the opportunities at his dispos

Thcro was something in the service
that seemed to put men on good beha
vior; it might havo been the oaths re
quired of them, or it may havo been
the knowlcdgo that when they wore
iho uniform of their country they rep
resented the everlasting principles of
right, justice and humanity in general,
and that it would be Inconsistent in
them to do a single act that was mean
or wrong. In any way it may be
looked at, tho fact that no paymaster
was robbed by tho soldiers during the
war, whose opportunities wero excel
lent every day, speaks volumes in
praise of the Inherent honesty of tho
pay corps of the federal army during

THE BRONZY CUTWORM.
A. Test Tlint In Frequently Mistaken for
tho Army Worm.
Dr. C. V. Rlloy, in his last year's re
port of tho division of entomology,
U. S. department of agriculture, calls
attention to tho bronzy cutworm,
which ho says Is frequently mistaken
for tho army worm. Ho found It in
April, 1871, feeding in numbers upon
clover in Missouri, and later in the
satno season upon blucgrass in other
parts of that state. The satno year it
was found at Ithaca, N. Y., ana since
that time has been noted in different
j. no moms mano uieir appearance
during tho months of August and Sep
tember, tho females laying eggs so that
tho resultant larvm will havo timo to
feed and pass through two or moro
molts beforo winter. Tho eggs havo
not yet been specifically observed, and
wo know nothing yet of the exact
mode and placo of ovlposltlon, Tho
partly grown worms hibernato under
sticks, stones and other rubbish, and
upon tho opening of spring come forth
and feed upon grass and other low
growing plants until they reach fnll
maturity. The time when they enter tho
ground to pupate varies from the first
of Juno to the end of the same month,
and they remain In tho ground some
time before transforming and issue as
moths, ai just stated, from the first of
August on. Though thoy feed in tho
hot sun nt midday, this is chiefly the
case with diseased worms, as normally
they are essentially nocturnal. In tho
more southern states the species may
hibernate as a moth, as it is frequent
ly captured in tho winter. The very
young larvm are bright green, with
bare indications of the stripes which
characterize the largo ones. Tho full
grown larva is one of the largest of its
family, and Is distinguished from all
others by tho pale amber-colored head
nnd tho bronzy hue of tho body, the

Twenty-six years ago Gen. Sherman'

The bridge over the Congareo river li
front of the city had been burned bj
the confederates tho night before anc
had to be replaced by a pontoon struct
ture. "I was tho first," wrote Gen
Sherman not long after, "to cross thi
pontoon, bridge, and in company witl
Gen. Howard, rodo into tho city. Thi
day was clear, but a perfect tempest o'
wind was raging. The brigade of Col
Stono was already in tho city nnd wai
properly posted. Citizens and soldicn
'wore on tho streets and general gooc
order prevailed. Gen. Wade Hampton
who commanded the confederate rear
guard of cavalry, iiad, in anticipatioi
of our capture of Columbia, ordered
that all cotton, public and private

Rales wero piled everywhere, the ropt

.but tho fire was partially subdued bj

'lho bronzy cutworm is quite subject
to attacks of natural (such as birds)
and parasitic enemies. Much more ef
fective than these, however, is a bac
terial disease. This is a micrococcus
which Prof. Forbes has for some timo
been studying, but which is not yet
named. We have been familiar with it
for many years, but wo believe that
public attention was first called to it
by Prof. Oiborn, in June, 18S1. Ho
then stated that the diseased worms
would bo found clinging to the stems
as high up as they could reach, their
bodies swollen to an unnatural size,
and in the later stages exceedingly soft
and ready to fall to pieces. This dis
ease has been noticed by us almost
every year since, but was particularly
prevalent in the summer of 1887, when,
on a trip through Indiana and Ohio and
to the east, it was everywhere noticed.
It was an extremely di fficult, not to
say impossible thing in fact, to find a
healthy worm. The hiding-by-day in
stinct seems entirely abse nt with the
Bick worms, which crawl laboriously
up the stalks of grass and there station
themselves, as described by Prof. Os
born, to die and eventually to shrlvol
up into unrecognizable objects. TLo
bronzy cutworm is also attacked by a
fungus disease which destroys largo
numbers. Orange Judd Farmer.
Why It Should Itn (lathered from Abo
lutcly I'tire Water.
It is always dcsirablo that Ico should
bo gathered from pure water, but whon
it is used for cooling water for drink
ing it Is iudlsponsablo that it bo per
fectly pure. As a rule tho water of a
pond is numerously charged with im
purities, nnd ico cut from a stagnant
pond, or ono through which a slow cur
rent, only, moves, should bo used with
caution. As a rule, water in freezing
separates from its impurities, even
those which aro held in solution. Thus,
salt wntcr freezes into fresh ice, ths
particles of water separating from tin
pnrtlclcs of salt. This may easily be
made very plain. It is known that the
particles of water measure not more
than one-flvo-hundred-mllllonthpart of
an inch in diameter, and thoro is over;
reason to bellovo they aro round.
When any substance Is dissolved in
water It is reduced to particles much
smaller than the molecules of tho wn
tcr, and thoso rest in tho spaces be
tween tho round bodies of which o
mass of water consists. Anything hold
in suspension in water merely lies
among tho particles of it, being in
larger size. When water freezes, the
exceedingly small particles of which il
consists join together, and form solid
crystals. As they havo only attrac
tion for each other and not for
other substances mixed with them,
theso arc pushed aside as the
needle-like crystals are formed on the
surface, and these, being lighter thnn
the water, float on the surface. As
the ico becomes thicker by the gather
ing of the minute crystals, any impure
matter is forced aside and remains in
the unfrozen water. Thus the ico is
pure under these circumstances. Hut
if rain falls, or dew is deposited, or
snow covers the ice, or a thin sheet oi
water flows over it, and theso freeze,
whatever impurities this water may
contain are of course retained and can
not escape to tho water below, and ice
so formed is not pure and will contain
more or less impure matter as the
peculiar circumstances may happen te
This explanation will help those
concerned to form a judgment in re
gard to the quality of the lec they may
gather, a:id if pure ice cannot be pro
cured it should be used outside of the
vessels in which anything to bo eaten
cr drunk is cooled. Whenice is taken
from its packing in the ice house and
used for cooling drinking water, it
should be washed clean, and as the
coolness of it condenses the moisture oi
tho air upon its surface, when ice it
used in a room where sick persons are,
it should be washed; but it is better te
keep it elsewhere. No doubt many in
jurious germs exist in ice, and the
worst of them, the various fever and
diphtheria germs, are not killed by the
cold of freezing even during weeks oi
months. Hence, ice is always to be
used with as much carefulness in this
respect as water is, or should be.
