War 1 alnnys acri floe ever mercy.
War dcnianda death aad wounds and de
atmction. He who can kill and wound and
dintroy mint is the greatest hern. War re
spects nothing, venerates not hing, blackens
everything. It moves in trailsacromaconn
try an a venomous serpent winds thronKh
the Kraiw. Yon follow the trails and look
in vain for oun single xpot where mercy and
pity staid the hand of destruction. Black
ness, draul.il ion. death and newmade (craves
are the milestones on the trails of war.
It was a Mayday, with the peach trees
everywhere in IdiMrom. Ik-hind us were
the rmoke and flame of dinlruction; ahead,
the old frmhnirs which sheltered no one
who could march in the ranks and fight
irainat us. The fragrant blossoms, the
prw ii hilla, the sunny skum -everything
told of peace, and yet war was at baud as
the flaxen haired children came running to
I he doors. J nst Ih.-1ow a farmhouse we halt
to warn our thirty horses at A brook flow
ing lnzily arms the roaiL A few mm ride
on to the bouse. We can bear children
crying in affright. We can bear the voice
of a woman raised in tearful protestation.
We can see itn old pray haired man with a
child in his nrms tit the door, and though
his voice is too wenk to reach ns we can see
by liuKestnre that he resetts the lawless
invasion cf the preiiiiaca.
Swnu of us ride to the right to rcarh the
barns, where the wngons ar? already drawn
up; pome to t he It-ff, where hoix-s are at
pa-4nrr; the remainder straight on up the
mad. Suddenly the bugles sound the
alarm and t hen wan us to rally on t lie cen

sadillo on our side is emptied liefore we
check their lierco cliarge and push them

has a light battery. The guns get to work
almost as soon as Urn carbines. Toe old

lets search out every nook and corner. Now
oar right wing drives the enemy liack with
a cheer uow the enemy presses Imek onr
left anil shouts in exultation. It is a hot
fight tor M minutes time enough for the
dead and wounded to number 150. The
reverberation of the guns brings down a
shower of liloasoms at every discharge, and
the black powder smoke floats up through
the branches and smirches and discolors
and leaves its grime.
Hally on the center! Forward trot
We have broken t he enemy and sent him
flying. We follow him for a mile or more,
shooting and hacking, and then the bugles
blow the recall, and we cease the pursuit.
There are dead men ou the dusty highway,
n the ditches, among the May weeds and
'.he thistles, and dead horses almost block
tie way at certain points. Yes, a hot little
ihrlit . and we are proud of our victory as
we reti:m to the oid farmhouse. We have
our dead to bury and unr wounded to look
after, and it is only when nn oflic-.T starts

To an outsider it would seem that the
height of lawlessness was reached in Chi
cago when Miss Grace Swift, daughter of
uctiug Mayor George 1). Swift, was made
the victim of a daring robliery on one of
tiie busiest thoroughfares of the West
Side. About 4 in the afu-rnoou Miss Swift
was hurrying for borne along Loom is

about ber tKuk was tightened so that alio
could make no outcry, and her pocketuouk
was snatched from her hand. Finding

ou shock than by her bodiiy wjuriaa. - "

"The kero of my story," he began, "And
he waa a hero of the first water, was ah Ar
kansas farmer who sailed under the honor
Able name of Miller. Of course you ail
know that In Arkansas it is against the law
of the commonwealth to use dynamite in
the public waters. Well, to hurry through
the statement of the case, a lot of us came
to the conclusion that if we wanted to make
,a big hnnl .?, fish it would lie necessary to
use a liuk force. Accordingly dynamite
bombs were secured. And we asked Miller
to go up stream and . throw the. bomb in,,
while hi guests, would gather at a ford
a few rods down and secure the floating
fish. Miller, accompanied by a highly edu
cated water spaniel, went np the bank and
prepared for his attack upon the denieens
4C the water. He hurled one missile, fuse
attached, into the stream. An instant later
his dog was in the water, and iu a moment
he bad the bomb in his mouth, swimming
for the shore.
'lrsp it. Tiger shouted the farmer.
Drap it, I say!'
"But the dog wonld not obey. He swam
wildly forward and in 30 seconds had land
ed. Miller started to run, the dog coming
after him at a breakneck gait. Miller ran
toward the fishermen below. Tbey realized
tho situation in an instant. And leveling
their guns warned the farmer to head in
another direction. The situation, for all
its seriousness, was the funniest that I ever
saw. Miller ran wildly down the hill, yell
ing at the dog to go back.
Stopr he yelled. 'Wrap it, Tige! Go
home!' lk-.t the dog only increased his ef
forts to reach his master's side.
But the end soon came. The fuse burned
its length and then Miller never recovered
even tho collar of poor Tigc." Su Louis
