"Hear her!" exclaimed tho old man,
growing very angry. "Now, Agnes,
listen to me. Soldiers aro not like they

with Spain It Is different; tho ranks aro
full of worthless men who have enlisted
because they wore out of jobs. Now,
from what I hear, tho young women of
Jacksonville have gone crazy"
"O, won't tho town boys be jealous?
Tho soldiers aro coming! Tra-la-la!
"Agnes, listen to mo! Remember you
aro not to put your foot on the encamp

over a lot of idle men and boys she knew

"Never mind," she said, soothingly,
"nuj be he will change his mind."
Florence soon left the house; she must
give vent to her feelings by expatiating
on Judge Wells' tranny In the"hearlng
qf her own Indulgent parents and her
other friends. And even this was not
sufllctent for relief; later she found it
necessary to relato the whole story,
with many little touches, to every young
ofllcer and private with whom It was her
pleasure to carry on an Innocent flirta
tion. Agnes, languishing In her old
ancestral home, was to her like the
beautiful castle-imprisoned heroine ot
the old-fashioned three volume novel.
The first one to whom she told tho
tale made her very angry by laughing
before she had finished. He was a hand
some young lieutenant, and on Intimate
terms with Florence, because he was a
distant relative of her cousin's aunt-ln-law.
"I beg jour pardon for laughing,
Cousin Florence," he said, "but ou see,
I am only beginning to realize a tenth
part ot tho adoration you dear girls
lavish upon a uniform; but to show
jou, however, that I really sympathize
with your heroine, I intend to pass by
her prison to-morrow that she may
feast her hungry eyes on ray brass but
tons." When he carried out this generous
Impulse) Agnes was reading under a
large rose vine; ho walked slowly to
give her time tJ enjoy the buttons while
he admired the flowers, among which
she was the fairest blossom.
"Excuse me, miss, but may I inquire
the way to camp?" He could think of
nothing else to say, his usual coolness
being lost in tho mazes of the young
Agnes stood and pointed towards tho
west. "It Is less than a halt mile," &ho
"Thank you, Ah, now I seo the can
vas; I might have seen It before but
for tho sun in my ej es, and the ilowers.
"We don't have them like this in our cll
t mate; you you never sell any, do you?"
"Certainly not; you are perfectly wel
come." And Agnes gathered for him tho
"I came out this afternoon to bhoot
pheasants," said the young man, getting
deeper Into Ihe mazes; "but I haven't
been very successful."
The llower she had jutt plucked fell at
her feet "Pheasants! Why, they never
come till later."
"Is that so?" replied he, vaguely,
thinking only o the girl and the Ilowers,
"Thank you; thank you."
Sho watched him as ho departed, his
broad handsome shoulders, his hhapoly
headrwlth its wavy black hair; his mili
tary tramiu tramp, was music to her
ears; and In hei' memory there lingered
the expression of his dark eyes as he
looked at her while he admired tho Ilow
ers, When LUut, Charles Q. King reached
hia quartors ladon with Judgo WolI
choicest flowers ho was greeted with a
yell and clamoring questions. "Whoro
have you been? What have you got?"
"I've bcon hunting," ho said gravely,
"and I'vo brought back a lot of pheas
ants." This remark was loudly applauded;
but to tholrastonlshmont the young of
ficer looked annoyed, and he presently
walked away In a dreamy fashion. It did
not take them long to dlscovor whoro ho
had been, and most of them felt Incllnod
to follow In his footsteps. For it was not
to bo expected that Lieut. King would bo
tho only young soldier aroused by a gal
lant desire to gratify this heroine of now
Increasing fame. Agnes had beauty;
sho nlso had wealth, and, too, she was to
bo sought while tho other girls woro
seeking. Under these enticing condi
tions It was not strange that permits "to
go hunting" became the order of the day;
nor was It strange that the atmosphere
around old Judgo Wells' residence took
on a bluish tint; nor that tho old man,
being deaf and near-sighted, and long
since insensible to tho sound of low
voices and the mystic changes In atmos
pheric tints, was entirely unconscious
that his castle had been besieged. For
far from being tho least amusing fea
ture of the comedy as it unrolled was tho
fact that tho Instigator himself was tho
"only Innocent man In town."
No one knew how It all came about.
Charles King was suro It had begun with
him on the first day when Agnes gavo
him the roses; from that moment with
definite purpose ho had gone to work to
shape the end. With Agnes It was differ
ent; sho had drifted from the romantic
titlllatlon of one meeting to the dreaded
but hoped-for ecstasy of the next, while
in the Intervals her conscience lay on tho
rack. She had no time for thought ot
the future; she could only tremble and
fear, tremble and hope.
It was not until the day when
Charles first left her under the rose
vine and went into the library to speak
to hpr father that sho felt this uncer
tainty diminish; not until then did sho
feel diffused through the gentle waver
ing disposition Inherited from her
mother something of her father'3
strong self-will. It crept over her
slowly at first, sclf-aff righted; but
when she watched her lover walk
about tho garden before coming near
her, it suddenly leaped like liquid firo
through her veins, stimulating, elec
trifying. He read her promise, for bet
ter or for worse, before a word was
"Heaven bless you, my darling!" he
said, pressing her white hand to his
lips. "It matters not what he says,
you will marry me. I see it in your

"Too much. He refused to glance at
my uncle's letter; did not, would not,
even hear who I am. But It all make3
no difference now; to-morrow wo will
They were wrapped In twilight, and
had no fear of interruption, All at
once Agnes becamo motionless, afraid
to stir, afraid to breathe; the tread of
an old man approached the sheltered

And he did. But for him one of the
party that gathered on the following
afternoon as if bv accident, at tho
church, "the chllo w'at he done raised"
would have been absent.
One of the other servants, however,
had not been o faithful. 'At the mo
ment when the young minister began
in a trembling voice to read the mar
riage ceremony the father had been
informed, and was walking up and
down his libraiy floor In a violent
rage. When tho minister wained; "If
any man can show just cause why they
may not lawfully be joined together,"
the father had ordered his carriage;
when tho minister questioned:' "Who
glveth this woman to be married to
this man?" he was dashing along rap
idly, yet urging his horses to greater
speed; and when the voico of the
young soldier spoke out confident and
strong: "With this ring I thee wed,"
ho was tearing at tho little church
yard gate. As the noise reached the
expectant cars of the few friends, all
sprang to their feet.
The old man camo hobbling up tho
aisle, shaking his fist at the officiating
priest. "Stop, sir! Stop! "iou are
overstepping your authority!"
But the tremor had gone from the
Voice of the young divine; ho no long
er hesitated, but said, looking sternly
into tho eyes of the enraged father,
while ho held firmly the newly-wedded
hands: "Those whom God hath joined
together let no man put asunder."
And though the old man stumbled
and fell In his passion, and Agnes
seemed ready to faint, and Florenco

the general commotion, he kept
straight on until they were -wed and

HEAVY LOSSES IN BATTLE.
What War Has Cost in Human Lifo
as Shown by Figures Taken from
tho Pages of History.
A perusal of tho remarkable speech
made before the house two years ago,
during tho debate on tho army bill, by
Congressman William R. Wamock, of
Ohio, would soon convince ono that there
have been other appalling losses of life
in battle than thoso that have been re
cently sustained in the far east. After
recalling the fact that during the civil
war there were 1.SS2 general engage
ments, battles and skirmishes in which
at least one regiment was engaged on
each side and that in moro than GO
regiments in each army tho loss in killed
nnd wounded was from GO to 85 percent
of tho members engaged, the orator
"Let us made a little further compari
son. Take the great battle of Waterloo,
one of tho 15 decisive battles of the
world, a battle which decided the fate
and changed tho geography of all Eu
rope. In that battle Napoleon had 82,000
men and 250 guns. Wellington, with the
allies, had 72,000 men and over 200 guns.
They lost on each side in killed and
wounded about 23,000 men, being a per
centage of loss from 25 to 32 per cent.
Turn to the great battle of Gettysburg
and compare it with the battle of Water
loo, and there Is a wonderful similarity
between the two In some respects. Gen.
Meade had in his army almost pre
cisely the same number of men Napoleon
had at Waterloo. Gen. Meade had
82,000 men, with the Sixth corps in re
serve, with 250 guns. Gen. Leo had
an army of 72,000 men, with 200 guns.
The losses were 23,000 on each side in
that engagement, almost identical with
the losses at Waterloo.
"Tho battle between the French and
Russians at Borodino was perhaps the
bloodiest battle since the invention of
gunpowder; there were 30,000 men killed
on each side. But as each army num
bered over 130,000, the per cent, of loss
was less than at Gettysburg and less
than at Waterloo. Take the great battla
at Leipzig, where Napoleon had 175,000
men, and where the allies had on the first
day 275,000, increased on the next day by
reenforcements to 330,000. There were
about 40,000 killed on each side. Yet the
very largest number engaged in .that
battle made the per cent, of loss very
much less than at Gettysburg or Water
loo." What Mr. Wamock described as "the
most remarkable loss in all history, "fell
to the lot of the Twenty-sixth North
'"That regiment," he said, "was 820
strong. It had 8G killed and 502
wounded, making a total of 588, or 71.7
per cent. That was on the first day'3
battle; but the most remarkable part of
it is that the regiment on the third day's
fight turned up with a little remnant of
21G men out of their 820, participated in
that gallant charge and came out with
only 80 men left. That I regard as
the most remarkable loss in all history.
There wasa company in that regiment
Capt. Tuttle's company that went in
with three officers and 84 men. They
came out of that with only one officer
and one man."
FATE OF A GUNBOAT.
The Truo Story of the Sinking of the
"Yellow Jacket" by a
Mr. Opie P. Read, the veracious anil
always reliable editor of the Arkansaw
Traveler, vouches for the truth of this
Btartling bit of war history:
During the recent dredging of Fox
river, in Tennessee, the sunken re
mains of the once nervous little gun
boat, the Yellow Jacket, were dis
covered. The sinking of the Yellow
Jacket, was the most remarkable ac
cident that ever occurred in this coun
try. The complete details of the af
fair could not be obtained at the time,
in face, we are in possession of the only
authentic account. Here it Is, told
by John P. McLuskln, now a well
known physician of Coffee county,
"It occurred," said the doctor, "when
I was a lad. There had been a heavy
snow, and several boys, Including my
self, were prowling about, hunting rab
bits, and wo began to amuse ourtelves by
rolling a snow-bull. We were, at this
time, on tho long hill known as Ben
son's Slope. We rolled the ball until It
got to be as big as a hogshead;
and then, as It was easy to roll down
the hill, continued to turn it over. To
our great delight, It became easier to
roll, and suddenly', to our great su
prise, It broke away from us and went
hounding down the slope. Then we
beheld a startling sight. Tho ball
grew so rapidly that it soon looked like
a rolling mountain. It picked up a
wagon and team, took up a negro
cabin, and then, with a tremendous
bound, fell into tho river, just In time
to strike ani completely bury the gun
boat Yellow Jacket. Not a soul on board

CARRIED BULLET IN HEAD.
The Remarkable Experience of Abra

At the battle of Stone River, on the
31st of December, 18G2, Abraham De
long, who belonged to an Ohio regi
ment, received a bullet wound from
which he never recovered, although he
lived for 22 years after being shot.
The bullet struck him square'ly on
the nose, well up between the eyes, in
such a way as to split the bone, which,
closing up again, left only a slight
wound that the surgeon declared had
been caused by a bullet coming from
a side direction and clipping off the
skin as It sped by.
Delong kept his feet, suffering little,
and in a few days was again in fight
ing trim. He served to the close of
the war, and returned to his home near
As the years passed, Delong experi
enced painful sensations, in his head,
at first slight, but more and more se

ferings finally drove him crazy. He
was taken to the insane hospital at
Dayton for treatment, where he recov
ered his mental faculties, but received
no relief from the terrible pain and
pressure In his head that made life
Some time before his death, which
took place in 1882, Delong got the idea
that the bullet that struck him at
Stone River had Indeed entered his
head, and proposed to submit to a
surgical operation that would deter
mine whether he was right about it.
This opinion was ifat shared by his
physicians, and, as the operation must
necessarily be a dangerous one, they
declined to search for the suspected
missile. He then requested that alter
his death an examination be made, in
order that his widow and children,
should it appear that he died of in
juries received in the service of his
country, might receive a greatly need
ed pension, his long period of ill
ness and inability to work having quite
eaten fp his little fortune.
Accordingly an autopsy was held.
To the surprise of the doctors, and as
Delong had predicted, they found a
bullet, or rather two jagged pieces of
lead, In his head, back of tho frontal
bones. One portion had lodged just
over the brain, and, together with a
fragment of bone that had been broken
oft by the bullet as It tore its way into
the cranium, had become incrusted with
a hard growth, which, extending year
by year, pressed harder and harder
against the brain, causing the terrible
pain of which Delong complained,, anil

MODERN MILK BUSINESS.
Conducted, on an Entirely Different
Plan from That of a Few
In a talk to farmers, Ira O. Johnson,
of Michigan, said- Tho modern milk
business is certainly a very differently
conducted business than tho ancient.
Since the teachings of our bacteriolo
gists have come to be recognized as
something the ordinary mind can com
prehend, and the relation of the keep
Ink qualities and healthfulness of milk
to cleanliness can be measured by bac
teriological research, the standard oi

Is a great chanco for improvement in
general, in nearly every city of any size
there will be found some one catering to
the best class of customers.
The demand for a better grade of
milk is constantly Increasing, as the
people are becoming educated to the
fact that there is a liability to con
tract disease by the use of filthy milk.
In the past, our dairy schools have
made a great effort to turn out men
who could select a good cow, and feed
balanced rations that would make a
good record for the cow or herd by
getting a large flow of milk. While
such conditions aro desirable and ne
cessary, I am of the opinion that In
structions along the lines of cleanli
ness in milk production should bo given
great prominence. The man who can
produce milk which will sell from 60 to
100 per cent, more than the ordinary
product on the market is doing human
ity more good, and getting just as well
paid for his labor, besides having the sat
isfaction of knowing that he is helping
to raise the standard of the dairy busi
ness and make It what it should be, a
profession, instead of what it is general
ly considered, something that anyone
