nmkentark telling stories. Tlio piny of
the uioonlight oil the wares htul turned
the narratives into rnthi-r sentiiuentnl
channels, and the judge, giving way to
the influence of tho "lovers' liunp," told
the following story.
"Yon know I was a colonel in tho
Union army In the war. Well, enrly in
the struggle I wnsordered to Louisville,
where I reported to Oeneral Don Carlos
Illicit. Instruction were given me to
go into camp with my regiment about
si.i miles south of tho city. Tlio place
' '.'en for the fiicnmpuicnt was tho
..tvniif a fine country plnce, the homo of
one of Kentucky s bliielilooded old fam
ilies. The owners wero known to lie in
strong sympathy with the south, so we
had no compunctious ntiout disfiguring
the grounds by making our temporary
home on them.
"On arriving tit tho farm I and some
of my officers rode up to the house to
arrnnge for such food as we could get.
We found two young women, pretty as
pictures, awniting us on tiie broad ve
randa. They had seen the preparations
for pitching tho tents, and were evi
dently not pleased. I dismounted, made
my liest bow and explained that the exi
gencies of war coniiicllcd us to camp on
their lawn. I assured them that tho
soliliers would inconvenience them as
littJe as possible.
"The two listened to my little speech
with looks of anger, and the taller one
snapped out: 'You shall not ennip on
our place. The last time Union soldiers
were here we didn't Lave cream tor our
coffee for two weeks and we don't pro
pose to stand it again.'
"We soldiers, accustomed to pretty
rough fare, could not help laughing at
this, and the flush on the faces of tlin
women grew hotter. I hastened to
apologize and to say again that wo
would bo as consideTate;as the necessi

visit the house dally, .and sometimes I
managed to conjure up second pretext
before bedtime. At the end of a week
tlte sisters regarded meinore as an indi
vidual and less as a Union officer, for I
studiously avoided referring to the war.
Once or twice the elder one told mo
with flashing eyes what would happen
to our men when they met a Confederate
force on the battlefield. Her brother
was a captain in lienor al Humphrey
Marshall's army, and aha warned me
against getting within rifle shot of his
"We got on swimmingly on the whole,
however, and I confess I grew more
than a little fond of the spirited girl.
In a little while the order came to move
on to eastern Kentucky, and I felt un
commonly sad when I rode np .to the
house to tell the young ladies goodby.
I imagined there was a slight sign of
emotion in the elder's pretty face when
I told the news, but it disappeared al
most instantly. Holding out her hand
to me she said frankly: 'Goodby, colo
nel. I am really sorry to sea you go.
Yon are not so bad for a Yankee.
Please avoid my brother. You might
get into trouble.'
"I laughed. 'Would you like to see
your brother I asked.
'"Oh, yea. Why do yon ask? aba said,
I " 'Well, I'll aend him to see yon then.'
It was her turn to laugh, and she said
mockingly, 'You'd better look out when
he's in the same county with you.' I
rode away, the tonea, but not the words,
ringing in my ears.
"Not long afterward my regiment was
in eastern Kentucky. One night two of
our men brought in a prisoner. He had
carelessly wandered outside his lines
and been captured. A handsome young
fellow he certainly was, with the bear
ing of a cavalier. 'What is yonr name?
I asked him.

some one said, "Well?"
The judge had been looking out over

"I suppose you married tho sister?" went
on the man.
"It's odd that every one who hears the
story should ask t hut," the judge snid.
"No; I never went buck to Kentucky

To Take Off Old Paint.
It is very seldom , now that you see a
painter burn off old paint with a spirit
lamp or torch, though there are still a
few who stick to the old method. The
easiest way to clean paint off wood, or
even metal, is to mix limn and aalsoda
pretty thickly in water and then npply
freely with a brush. After a short time
the paint can lie scraped off withont dun
culty. Any amateur can use this recipe;
only little care Is advisable, as the
mixture will remove skin from the
hands or face even more rapidly than it
will remove paint from wood or metal.

It is a well known fact that milk is
specially apt to sour during the preva
lence of a thunderstorm, and from this
it has been surmised that the electric
discharge held some mysterious sway
over the lacteal fluid. An Italian ex
perimenter, one Professor G. Tolomel,
Las been making trlnls of various sorts,
the object being to throw some light on
electric influence over milk molecules.
In his first experience he passed an elec
tric discharge from a Holtz machine he
tween two bulls of platinum hanging
two inches apart in n lmt tie containing
a quart of fresh milk; secondly, by send
ing a current iM-twecn two slriM of
platinum at the bottom of a V tube
filled with the same flu: thirdly, by
subjecting milk In a test till to the ac
tion of a strong battery current through
a silk covered copper wire wound spi
rally around the tulie.
In each one of these exieriment,
which were ns thorough as any lover of
science could wish, it was proved that
acidulation of the milk was dolayed in
stead of hastened, as had been expected.
Three equal portions of milk from the
samo milking thus treated began to
grow acid on the seventh, the ninth and
the sixth days, respectively, while other
portions of it which had not been treated
with electricity was rankly acid on the
evening of the third day. Having thns
disproved the popular theory of lightning
being the direct canse of the acidifica
tion of milk. Professor Tolomei tried
ozone and found therein the mystio
agent of milk souring. In his second
trial of ozone he brought the surface of
a nnnntity of milk close to the two halls
of the machine nsed, and the fluid al
most instantly became acid in conse
quence. Here at lost a mystery that has puz
zled professors and peasants alike has
been made plain. St. Lonis Republic.

Among Chicago's industries is a fac
tory where the manufacture of shoes for
corpses is carried on exclusively.
Out of five neat black boxes a repre
sentative of the firm yesterday took as
many different sizes. These were adults'
and children's shoes. The material cor
responds with the purpose of their nse.
The shoes are certainly nice to took at.
The soles are cnt out of pasteboard and
are covered with grained paper. The
uppers are a combination of quilted
satin and crochet work. A ribbon, in
serted at the top and tied in a neat bow
knot, holds the shoe to the foot.
"Men's shoes are always black," it
was said. "Occasionally we turn ont a
lot of brown ones. We have had special
orders for men's white shoes, bnt only
in a few instances. Shoes for women
and children are always white. They
are not expensive; five to fifteen dollars
will purchase a dozen pairs."
The burial shoe is a patented article.
It was designed by a Joliet (Ills.) woman
milliner, who now enjoys the profits of
her idea. The Chicago company has
been in existence for nearly a decade,
and is catering to an ever increasing de
mand. The firm employs a traveling
man, who covers all the territory be
tween Maine and California. It takes
ten girls and several machines to keep
up with his orders. The average month
ly output is 15,000 pairs during the dull
season. It is increased to 25,000 during
a busy period. Chicago Tribune.
