A FTER the battle of Ball's Bluff
fjL there followed weeks of com
ia paratire Inactivity In military
affairs about Washington. It
was during this interval that the half
sarcastic pbrae was coined, "All quiet
along the Potomac."
There was one tragic aftermath of
the ill starred action near Leesburg
that deserves mention. It helped to
increase the burden of the president.
Colonel Bakr and Mr. Linooln hud
long been boom friend. C. C. Coffin,
who was. at MeClellans headquarters
when the president heard of Baker's
death, tells this incident, and It is re
peated in Ida M. Tarbell's "Life of Lin
coln." It was a bright October afternoon,
and Mr. Lincoln, as was his habit,
went to headquarters for the latest
news from the front. After greeting
the correspondents he followed an at
tendant into General MeClellan's room,
after which there was Filenee except
for the click of the teleirraph instru
ments. "Fire minutes passed." said
Mr. Coffin, "and then Mr. Lincoln, un
attended, with bowed head and tears
rolling down his furrowed cheeks, his
face pale and wan. his breast heavir.g
with emotion, passed through the!
room. lie almost fell as he stepped j
into tne street. e Kpran;r involuntari
ly from our seats to vmir assistance,
but he did not fall. With both bands
pressed upon his henrt he wa'kfd d.wn
the street, not returning the salute of
the sentinel pacing his beat Ivfore tin
"General McClellan came a moment
later. 'I have not much news to tell I
you,' he said. 'There has bw-n a move- I
niCDt of the troops across the I't"tnac I
at Edwards Frry. under General j
Stone, and Colonel Raker is reported
killed. That is alout all I cau give
von. " j
During the week ending Oct. 2S
there were several actions of tuiuor
importance in other parts of the coun
try. th most thrilling of which was
the celebrated rharge of G-ner:il Fre
mont's iMjdygunrd. led by Major
Zngonvi. at Springfield. This o.-r"urnd
n tin- 25th. ZnvonyJ was a Hunga
rian who had seen service lu the old
world There were only about l."V
men in the bodyguard. Co-open. ting
with tbern before the charge was
lead your he then shouted. "Let the
watchword be 'The Union and Fre
mont 1 Draw sabers! By the right
liank quick trot march !"
Where Impetuosity "Won.
To get at the enemy it was nees
6ary to traverse a narrow lane, where
the Federals were subjected to a mur
derous fire. At the end of this lane
was a stout rail fence that had to be
thrown down. Notwithstanding these
obstacles the guard swept through
with a shout like thunder. Beyond
the lane the Fnloa commander sent a
detachment of thirty men against the
center of the Confederate cavalry, and
with such impetuosity was the charge
made that the opposing line "was
broken. Zagonyi th?n ordered hlfl
whole line to charge In open order,
and they s'rifk th foe with whirl
wind velocity, sending the southern
infantry scampering to cover in a
nearby wood anl driving the cavalry
pellmell into the town, fighting them
through the streets and finally captur
ing or dispersing them all.
When the cari:sge was at its height
in the streets o Spri::g?'e;d the I"ri'"n
women faced the danger and came out
of their houses to wave handkerchiefs
and cheer the victors on. The slaugh
ter was fearful. More than half of
Zaeonyl's force was killed, wounded
or missing. Several of the men h;-d
two or three, horses shot under them.
but captured Confederate h-rses and:
went on. The oharsre strrlcd at about j
4 o'clock in the afternoon, and It was j
dark when the fighting ceased. Theiv ;
were nearly twenty charges thro?i;:Ii
the streets. When it was ail over Za
gonyi released the T'nion prsonirs that
he found in the town and raised the
stars and stripes over the courthouse.
Then reassembling the home puurd
and leaving about twenty additional
men t look after the do:id and wound
ed he gathered together the seventy of
his men left and returned to Fremont's
main army, which was then approach
ing. Major Zagonyi reported that he
had captured twenty-seven prisoners,
sixty stands of arms and .Si.ffcxj in gold
Later statements made the I'nion ki!i-
I ed iu the action twenty-two ami that
j of the Confederates sixty. Fr-non'
but were In each a hot fire that they
were unable to hold it. In this action
fell Major GaTitt and Captain High
man, both of Indiana.
Aside from this one reverse every
thing favored the Federals, and the
foe was soon In full retreat, which
finally became a rout. The pursuit
was "kept up till nightfall, and one
troop of cavalry continued It far into
the night, bringing back one gun and
several prisoners. The next morning
the whole Union army resumed the
pursuit, but after following for ten
miles and sending a troop of cavalry
forward twelve miles farther, gave up
the chase and returned to Frederick
town. Colonel Plummer reported six killed
and sixty wounded on the Union side
and said" he buried 15S of the enemy,
and other bodies were found later. He
took eighty prisoners, thirty-eight of
whom were wounded. The Confeder-'
ate colonel, Lowe, who had been the
ieader of a command of independents
only less troublesome than that of
Thompson, was killed.
General Grant wrote a letter of con
gratulations to Colonel riummer and
thanked others of the command. Gen-

Affair at Romney.
A third action of some importance
during this week was fought at Itotn
ney, in what is now West Virginia.
There had been two previous affairs at
this point. Colonel Lew Wallace being
the Union commander in the first and
General B. F. Kelly in the second. The
present affair was also conducted by
Kelly and in numbers engaged was the
most consiaerable of the thre. At this
time Kelly was guarding the Baltimore
and Ohio railroad. Learning that there
was a considerable force of Confeder
ates at Romney. he advanced against

An interesting story of Ibsen as a
tailor is told In a Paris contemporary.
Jonas Lie, a Norwegian poet, was ac
customed to spend part of the sum
mer at Berchtesgaden, in the Sales
burg Alps. On one of tfces occasions,
while sojourning in the neighborhood,
Ibsen turned up at his friend's resi
dence and asked to see Mme. Lie, add
ing that they need not disturb the
poet. When madame appeared Ibsen
apologized. It was only a trifle a but
ton had come off. He had purchased
a needle and thread. Mme. Lie, wo
manlike, offered to sew on the button,
but the poet would not bear of it. All
he asked was that she would aid him
by threading the needle. lie had found
it most difficult. The lady, of course,
complied, and Ibsen went on his way
Mme. Lie did not meet Ibsen again
until some days after the needle diffi
culty was surmounted. This time he
called to see the poet. There was no
demand for an interview with the
poet's wife. In the course of conver
sation the lady, "wishing to get her
own back," inquired somewhat satir
ically if she could be of any service
to her husband's friend. Could she
thread another needle for him? "A
thousand thanks, ray dear madame,"
replied the author of "The Doll's
House." "I took care when you
threaded the needle for me to make
the thread long enough to last the
whole summer." London Globe.
