AFTER winning the battle of
Wilson's Creek, Missouri, on
. Aug. 10, 1861, the Missouri
Confederates, led by General
FterTIng Price, took recession of
Sprraglield and controlled nearly the
iwhole of western Missouri as far
north as Lexington, -which is oo tbe
Missouri river about 100 miles north
ef Springfield. This post was occu
pied, by a email force of borne gruards

Sept. 0. Meanwhile Trice was hasten

mud building: intrenebments. A quan-.
tity of powder was obtained, and our ;
cisterns were filled with water. The !
men made cartridges and cast l. '
rounds of shot for the guns. All this j
time our pickets were engaged with
the enemy. On tbe night of the 17th
we heard sounds of preparation for
attack in the enemy's camp.
"At 0 o'clock the 1 Vth the drums beat
to arms, and tbe terrible struggle com-1
menoed. The enemy's forces had been
increased to 19.000 men. They came
on in one dark, moving mass. They
planted two batteries In front, one on
the left, one on the right and one In
the rear and opened with a terrible fire.
Our ."pies Informed us that the enemy
intended to make one grand rout and
bury us all in the trenches of Lexing
ton. The batteries opened at 9 o'clock
and for three days never ceased to pour
deadly hot npon us. About noon our
hospital was taken. It was outside the
intrenebments. I bnd tnken it for
granted that it whs not necessary to
build fortifications eronnd the sick
man's couch. Put I was inexperienced.
They besieged the hospital, took it and
from the balcony jxmred a deadly fire
into our intrenchnients.
"Tbe hospital contained our chaplain,
surgeon and 120 wounded. It could
not be allowed to reninln in the posses
sion of tli enemy. Two companies of
Missourians were ordered in turn tr
retake the hospital, but both refused.
Tbe Montgomery guards. Captain
Oleason. of the IrNh brigade, were
then ordered in. The commander,
with a brief exhortation to uphold the
historic name they bore, gave the word
to harf. The distance was Si0
yards. They started, first quick, then
double quirk, then on a run, then
faster. The enemy poured a deadly
shower of bullets upon them, but on
they went up the slope to the hospital
door and. with irresistible bravery,
drove the enemy before them. The
hospital was retaken. Captnin Gleason
was shot through the arm and through
"Townrd evening word came from
the enemy th.if If the whole garrison
did not surrender before next day they
would hoist the i.ln' k flag and give no
qunrier. We t' Id them when we asked
for quarter it would bo time to s"ttle
that. We were in a terrible situation.

nothing but a razor, acted as surgeon.

no re-enforcement appeared. Still the
men fought on. Tbe enemy had con
structed movable breastworks of bemp
bales, rolled them up tbe hill and ad
vanced their batteries In a manner to
command our fortifications. Heated
Phots were fired at them, but they had
taken the precaution to soak the bales
in tbe Missouri. Tbe attack was urged
with new vigor, and during the fore
noon the outer breastworks were taken
by a charge. The whole line was bro
ken, and tbe enemy rushed in. At
first the bales were dipped in the river
to wet thea, but the water so increas
ed their weight that the men could
scarcely roll them to the crest of the
hill where they were most needed.
After a time they were rolled Into po
sition and then saturated. The Fed
erals having a second time been dis
lodged from the hospital height, the
Confederates threw out from that po-
f pition wings on the right and the left.
I covered with the wet hemp bales.
j These furnished protection for several
j Lundred men. The commander of the
I assailants at that point says that on
the morning of the surrender he ad
vanced his defense of hemp bales very
near to the Federal intrenchments and
opened fire with fatal effect.
"Captain Fitzgerald, whom I had
known in my younger days and whom
we called by tbe familiar name of
'Sary, was then ordered to oppose his
company to the assailants. As I gave
the order, Saxy, go in," the gallant fel
low, at the head of Company I, with
a wild yell rushed upon the enemy.
The firing suddenly ceased, and when
the smoke arose from the field I saw
the Michigan company, under its gal

also charging the enemy and driTing
"Many of our good fellows were ly

and It was evident the fight would
soon cease. It was now 3 o'clock, and
all on a sudden an orderly came. Bay

of truce. With the flag came tbe fol
lowing note from General Price:

"I returned It with the following
message written on the back:
' 'I hardly know, unless you have
surrendered.' Fie took pains to assure
me that was not the case. I learned
soon after that that our home guard
had hoisted a white flag. The lieuten
ant who had hoisted tbe flag was
threatened with instant death unless
be hauled it down. At that one of the
oilicers exclaimed. 'This is butchery!'
"The conviction became general, and
a council of war was held. The place
was given up. and the enemy came
pouring in. We were placed in file
and led through the streets of Lexing

Thus ends Colonel Mulligan's story.
When he and hl9 field officers offered
up their swords General Price said:
"You gentlemen have fought so brave
ly it would be wrong to deprive you
of your swords. Keep them."

gold. Tbe treasure was buried in the
principal fort under Mulligan's tent I

PRESSURE OF AIR.
It May Readily Turn the Thermom
eter Into a Fibber.
On an ordinary Fahrenheit thermom
eter there is writteu opposite 212 de-
grees "Boiling point of water"' and op- t
posite 32 degrees "Freezing point of
water." Neither of these is correct ex- j
cept for a certain condition of the at- !
mosphere. and that is when it gives on !
the barometer about thirty Inches, or
fifteen pounds pressure to the square
inch. This is the ordinary pressure at
what is known as sea level, and to this
all thermometers are calibrated.' In a
mountainous region the pressure is
hardly ever so much as fifteen pounds,
and water boils at sometimes as low as
If water is boiled in a diving bell,
where the pressure is forty or fifty
pounds a square inch, its temperature
will be several hundred degrees in
stead of 212. If water is boiling in a
near vacuum the temperature is so
small that the hand thrust into the
water would actually feel cold.
What has been said about the boiling
point applies to some extent to the
freezing point, but here it differs for
different materials, whereas the re
marks about tbe boiling point of water
apply to the boiling points of all
Some substances when they freeze
become larger, while others become
smaller. On this depends the freezing
point at different pressures of atmos
phere. Water expands on freezing; so
do type metal and some other things.
All other substances become smaller
on freezing. Water pipes burst when
the water freezes. Coins of gold and
silver are stamped instead of being ;
molded, for the metals grow smaller on
freezing or solidifying, and consequent
ly the coin would be wabbly.
It has been found that the things
that expand on solidifying, as water,
freeze at a lower temperature when
the pressure is increased, while the
others freeze at a higher. When a
substance that expands freezes under
higher pressure than usual it has to
exert more force to shove the pressure
away, and consequently has to use up
more of its heat energy, thus losing
more heat and becoming colder.
Take the substance that contracts
when It solidifies. The pressure will
help it to get smaller, and consequent
ly the greater the pressure tbe less
heat it has to lose on attaining the
solid state, so it will freeze at higher
temperature. If the pressure is great
enough it may freeze or solidify at a
thousand degrees temperature, which
is high enough to change most sul
stancesj to vapor under ordinary at
This is one of the reasons advanced
to prove that the interior of the earth
is solid, for the assumption is that the
core is made up of substances that
contract when freezing, and there is,
of course, an enormous pressure a few
hundreds of miles below the surface.
In regard to the boiling points of
liquids, there is an upper limit to the
point at whkh a thing boils that is,
changes to the state of vapor. It Is
called the critical temperature. No
matter how great a pressure exists on
a substance, if it Is at a temperature
greater than Its critical it will change
to vapor anyhow.
The ignorance of this roint held
back the making of liquefied gHses
such as air, carbon dioxide, etc. for
many years. The experimenters tried
to liquefy gases at ordinary tempera
tures by enormous pressures, whereas
if they had just cooled the gases la
low their critical temperatures before
I applying the pressure liquefaction
would have ensued immediately.
This is the method employed today
J in making liquid air. The air is com
j pressed at first and then allowed to
! issue from a small orifice, thus ex
panding and cooling, is then pumped
back and compressed by tbe pump,
allowed to go through the orifice
again, thus cooling still more, until at
last it Is below the critical tempera
ture, when the compression caused by
the pump liquefies it. Lawrence

Cecilton, Md. Mr. George Richards,
of this place, during the past 12 years,
has probably tried more different diets
than the average person would ever use
in a lifetime.
What he has to say about his experi
nents, must therefore be highly interest
ing to anyone suffering from indigestion
or stomach troubles of any kind.
He says: "For more than 12 years,
I suffered with stomach troubles, and
paid hundreds of dollars for doctor bills
and medicines. I was aJso operated on
1 lived on dried peaches and buttermilk
for nearly three years. The only thing
that would not give me pain was raw egs.
I was a physical wreck. I could not

I must sav that after takine two 25-cenf
packages of Thedford's Black-Draught, !
it did me more good than all 1 ever spent j
