Dr. Fosdlck thrust his hands Into
tils pockets, and stood looking down
at th girl with an odd mixture of de
termination and entreaty la his ex
pression. For the first time In his life his
tongue had bungled, and his words
.had but haltingly expressed the mean
ing he had Intended. This had Irri
tated him extremely, and he stood
;rery straight and dignified, trying by
magnificent outward calm to atone for
,hia recent nervousness.
The girl's averted face was undenia
bly pretty, and Just now a deep flush
lent it additional charm. She had
known for a long time that, sooner or
later, this moment would come.
She had prepared herself for It; yet
now that it was here she had sud
denly weakened into Irresolution. The
doctor watched her keenly.
At length she turned in her chair,
and her eyes met his squarely.
"There are many reasons. Bob,"
she said, softly, "why I should say
The doctor permitted himself a
smile of encouragement and satisfac
tion. . "And there are more. I think, why
I should say no,' " she pursued.
"Katharine!" he was startled Into
"I'm going to be perfectly frank with
you," she said.
"Do," he urged tersely.
"1 shan't say that I don't care for

iyoa, you would be more more human.
You bend things to your will. I think
'I'm afraid of you."
The doctor's chin went up, and he
laughed In evident relief.
"Don't, please." said the girl re
proachfully. "It's serious."
"I know, dear; I know," said the
doctor hastily, "but knowing count

Stood looking down at the girl.
March afternoon with the Brewers,
and just a trifle downcast, she sat
quite alono In the dim front parlor of
the Brewer house, while the two
Brewer girls always procrastinating
were upstairs arraying themselves.
The big folding doors between the
front and back parlors were drawn to
gether, and from behind them came
a piping, childish voice and weak
trebles of laughter. It was evident
that little Ted Brewer, with his poor,
twisted spine, waa In there enjoying
the afternoon sun.
rreaoutly the doorbell Jangled and
otue one was admitted some one
who walked with firm, swift steps
down the hall to the back parlor.
Katharine knew those steps, and her

taj'd Ted, with a force that was ridicu

O, I say, old chap," began Fosdlck
In conciliatory tones.
"Not to-day," said the small voice

HELPED SHERIDAN WIN BATTLE.
Little Quakeress Sent Information to
the Famous Soldier.
MaJ.-Gtn. Philip H. Sheridan
planned, fought ami won his first in
dependent battle on the advice of a
woman and ahe hp It observed. WAS
I a little Quakeress, whose sect believes
in xcace. Of the truth cf this state-
ment, we have Gen. Sheridan's written
n hsd always fought nnder other
generals until he was placed in com
mand of the Middle Military Division,
composed of the Sixth, Eighth. Nine
teenth and cavalry corps. By order
of Gen. Grant, this force was sent to
clear the Valley of Virginia; not only
tf armed foes, but of all provisions.
That campaign was war in all its
cruelty, for It brought ruin to crops,
and suffering to defenseless women
and children. But as a war measure
It was deemed a necessity, because
that fertile valley furnished all of the
food supplies for Lee's army. Con
federate soldiers to-day look upon that
eampaign as a war measure, but the
writer has seen and. conversed with
elderly ladles there who hate the
name of Sheridan because of the suf
ferings they endured. They saw their
crops destroyed, their barns and
uces burned, and some of thero car
rying Infants In their arms were left
without roof, food or clothing.
While preparing for bis Initial
movements in the vicinity of Win
chester, Gen. Sheridan found It very
difficult to obtain reliable Information
concerning the location and number
01 th forces of Gen. Early. Finally.
from Rebecca U. Wright, a little
Quaker girl residing In Winchester,
he secured the accurate information
ho needed; and upon that informs! Ion
ho planned, fought and won the bat
tle of Opequan Crevk, on Sept.. IS.
IStit. the battle known in history as
the battle of Winchester.
In the redemption division of the
treasury department the little Quaker
girl has been employed for many
years. She bss a gold watch, upon
which these words are Inscribed:
"Preented to Rebecca L. Wright,
Sept. 19, 18t7, by Gen. Phil. H. Sheri
dan. A memento of Sept. 13, ISC-t."
Tho watch is attached to a long
gold chain, fastened at the neck with
a horseshoe clasp, a military gaunt
let and stirrups. Hanging from the
short end of the chain is a sword, a
seal and key. With the watch came
a letter, of which the following Is a
Department of the Gulf.
New Orleans. Jan. 7. 1S67.
My Dear Miss Wright: You are
probably not aware of the services
you rendered the I'nion csuae by the
Information you sent by the colored
roan a few days before the battle of
Opequan, on Sept. 19, 1HC4. It wsa
upon that Information that the battle
was fought, and probably won. The
colored man gave the note, wrapped
In tinfoil, to the scout who awaited
blm at Millwood. He had carried It
In his mouth to that point, and the
scout brought It to me.
By that note I became aware of the
true condition of affairs Inalde the
enemy's lines, and gave directions fur
the attack. I will always remember
thst courageous and patriotic action
of yours with gratitude and I bg you
to accept the watch and chain which
t send by Gen. J. W. Forsyth as a me
mento of Sept. 19, IStU.
Very respectfully yurs,
1 H. Sheridan.
Tho l.tter was placed in double
frames by Mrs. Bonsai, so that the
writing on both sides can be seen
through the glass covering. On the
back if the letter la an autograph in
dorsement by Gen. Grant, requesting
the appointment of Miss Wright to
the treasury department, and upon
thst request her original appointment
was made. While In the department
ahe inrrled Mr. liouaal. and after his
death she was. reappointed.
The Quaker family of Wrights re
sided In Wlnchenter. As Quakers they
were opposed to war. prayed for peace,
and remained loyal to the cauaa of the
I'nion. Ile aiike her father would not
fight he was arraated and Impris
oned by the Confederates. Because
cf confinement and hardships he died
In prison. The widow lived with her
l1au)ihr and IIMI boy with undimin
ished loyalty. They were pitied and
much respected by their neighbors.
About noon of the ICtb of Mcptem-
ber, rSo:, a nolored man knocked at
the door and asked to see Miss Wright
There wore two Miss Wrights In Win
cheater, and th colored man Ma'oi
thut he wanted to see Miss Rebecca
After linking carefully about him, the
colored man asked permission t
apeak to Mins Wright alonn. Tho re
quest was granted; they entered an
other room, and the man closed the
door. The little Quakeress was fright
ened. but was Immediately assured
that tier visitor waa from General
Sheridan; and the colored man said
th,t It would be betler for her mother
not to know the message. Then
tsklng a roll of tinfoil from his mouth
ho handed It to the young lady. She
slowly unrolled It, and found therein
a letter from Gen. Sheridan, written
on tissue paper. The colored man
said he had carried it In bis mouth
with instructions to swallow It if mo
lested by the Confederates. The man
then left, saying that he would re
turn at 3 o'clock. The letter follows
"I learn from Gen. Crook that you
are loyal young ladr, and still ke
the old flag. Can you Inform me of
the position of Gen. Early's -forces,
the number of revisions In his army
and the strength of any or all of
them? Ills probablo or reported in
tentions? Have any more troops ar
rived from Richmond, or are any more
coming, or reported to be coming?
"I am, very respectfully, jour
"P. II. SHERIDAN.
"You ran trust tho bearer."
Miss Wright consulted with hei
mother, and they concluded to run the
risk the risk of death. Sho says:
"Only a few evenings previous, a con
valesccnt Confederate officer had
spent the evening with us. We talked
of the war. and he voluntarily told
us all about tho purposes of Gen
Early, the number and disposition ol
his troops, and the salient fact that
several thousand of Early's troops had
been called elsewhere. These fact
I sent by tho colored man. and Sherl
dan saw that it was time to make the
attack. On the following Monday
morning I was awakened by ihe boom
ing of cannon, and the battle was on
By noon our streets were filled with
trocps. houses were blazing all around
us, being fired by exploding shells
and in the evening there was a elat
tering of sabers on our steps. Wher
I opened the door two officers en
tered, one of them Introducing him
self as Gen. Sheridan. He thankee
me most earnestly for the Informstiot
I had furnished him. At my desk h
wrote a brief account of the battle
then rode away, after assuring rot
that his victory that day was due ti
the information I had sent blm In tb
tinfoil covered note.

S. S. What cover crop should
sow in my orchard? I cannot sow
it until Sept. 1, or thercalKuts. Ho
does rye compare with vetch as a
green manure? Is vetch difficult to
euro for iodder?
it you cannot sow velch until Sept
1, I do not think It would he as use
ful a cover plant as rye. It would
germinate, but the growth possibly
during the limited period between
that time and cold weather would b
comparatively slight. It would, under
ordinary circumstances, continue Its
growth promptly in spring, but tfi:
I question whether it would be as de
slrable to use It. If, however, mj
could cow the vetch as early as th
first of August, you would have a
cover crop worth while; and In tbli
cover you would secure much mor
valuable fertilizing material than In
the rye. The rye will add humus
but as a nitrogen collector. It Is not
to be rated with vetch. Vetch bay
Is rather hard to handle. Like clovet
it cures slowly, and Is almost Impoe
slble to euro when the weather con
ditlons are unfavorable. I would sug
gest that you try small patch nes.1

he best way to answer the questloc
