the ball which passed through tho Gen
eral in the Mexican war?" Mrs. Shields
asked. In response to an nllirmatlvo
she brought out a grape-shot, not liko
the moro modern messengers of de
struction, but a great iron ball with a
deep, ragged fringe, showing rude
casting. It measured full thrco inches
in circumference. This was picked up
on the battle-field by an aid of General
Scott's, who presented it to General
Shields only a few years ago. The shot
which struck tho General entered be
low tho heart, passed through tho
lung and came out under the shoulder
blade. A surgeon on the Mexican side,
who found him, took a silk handker
chief and following thn courso of the
wound drew it entirely through tho
body. So certain wero tho medical
men ho could not recover thaj the of
ficial report sent on to Washington in
cluded Shields among the dead. "In
all the years of our married life," said
Mrs. Shields, "I don't think I ever
knew him to havo ono whole night of
sleep undisturbed by that wound. Ho
would get up out of bed and walk tho
lloor by tho hour. 'Ma,' ho would
often say to me, 'I know this will kill
me,' and so it did. Tha doctors had
told mo to try and keep him at homo
and quiet as much as possible, for that
wound was liable to causo his death
very suddenly, lie was not a man to
complain, and very few peoplo knew
what ho suffered ho could stand so
much. After ho was wounded in the
Mexican war, they wantod to cut his
left arm off; it had begun to mortify.
Ho told them uo. Then they said that
the only thing that could possibly save
him was to cut in and scrape tho bone.
Ho told them to do it, and went
through tho operation without takiug
chloroform. In tho last war his right
arm and shoulder wero badly hurt by
fragments of a shell, and he had much
trouble with them. Ho could never
lio on that side. You might think a
man who had gone through such suf
ferings himself would get callous to
wards tho feelings of others, but bo
didn't. It was not onee, but many a
time, I've seen him take a mouse that
had fallen into a basin of water and
dry the little thing caretully and let it
go. ho was so tender-hearted." St.
