and of Her Itetnrn of the Compliment
t a Serious Moment.
8aid Capt Honry Bush, tho well known
artist, who was 11 topographical engineer on
tho staff of Gen Rosecrans in the Army of
the Cumberland to a reporter:
"It was in the autumn of lSfil," continued
the old topograj hioal engineer, "at Louisville
where I first Haw tho woman who was after
ward to come into my life in tho most unex
pected way. I was then an officer in the
First Ohio cav dry, and the colonel of the
regiment, the ar jutant and myself one night
attuiidod tho th atre in which Pauline Cuah
man wm playi ig an engagement. During
tho performance and near the close the actress
came down to tuo footlights and drank a
toast to Jeff Da As. The act was a foolhardy
one, hut ominently rhanwteristio of Cush
man. Tho remit was just about what
might have been expected, considering that
tho house was rroro than half full of (soldiers.
"Tho insult w is instantly roswited and a
tremendous upr lar and row followed. More
than a score of men made a rush for the
stage, and tho ontiro audience was tip and
yelling. Our p:irty were in a hox and took
in the situation at a glance. The soldiers
were furious, ai d the sox of tho actress would
not have saved her from violence, had we
not jumped upin the stage to her rescue.
While tho colon )1 and adjutant were endeav
oring to quiet the angry, surging mob with
speeches, 1 threv a cloak over M iss Cushman,
and hurrying to the stage door, bundled her
into a waiting I ack and had her wife in the
Louisville hotel tjefore the crowd knew she
was out of the t leatro. )f course tho woman
was pretty badly seared, and after it was all
over realized kemly the peril hor foolish act
brought her. ho was profuse in her thanks
for the service rendered her, and promised, as
long as I would listen, that sho would repay
the obligation, it mattered not when or where
the opportunity offered.
"The next morning we were ordered to the
front, and I saw nothing more of Pauline
Cushman, alth mgh I often beard she had
turned Confederate spy, and that she was
serving with tio Confederate forces, with
whom we were almost daily Iwttfing. After
tho engagement at Stono River, Gen. H-we
crans, to whoso staff I bad been assigned,
mado hcadquar-prs at Winchester, Tenn. We
occupied the Mury Sliarp college building for
some time, during which I contracted typhoid
fever, ami beca no so ill that I was removed
to a boarding l-ouso kept by a man by the
name of Day, which was just acrosB the
street from my old quarters. I had scarcely
.begun convalescing when tho army was or
dered forward, the objective point being
Chieamnuga. I was still too sick to go with
tho staff, but If I remained in Winchester the
danger of bei ig gobbled by Confederate
guerrillas was fTeat, as the woods surround
ing tho town w.;re full of thorn, only await
ing the onward movement of the Union
troops to sweep down upon tho village and
devastate it, but there was no help for it. In
the opinion of the surgeon, I whs still toe
weak to lie removed in an ambulance, and it
was arranged tliat I wax to stay with old
man Day and his wife until I was stronger,
when it was nn ld-stood u conveyance, would
be sent for me.
"About 5 o'cl x-k in the evening, just after
tho last detach merit had marched past my
window, I arose from my lied, dressed myself
in a new suit of clothes, wrapped up in tissue
paper what mo icy 1 had in my possession,
something over $1,MX) which I had received
a few days -U rn the fever attacked me for a
painting I bad made of tli churge of thr
First Ohio cavidry Ht Stone river, and pre
pared to follow the iirmy, if I could find a
conveyance. T he exert ion f dressing, how
ever, was too n.iicli for me, and I was forced
to again lie down ilium the lied. I lay there
resting for, per laps, an hour, when just about
ri o'clock Mrs. Day ennio into my room and
told me that, Dick McCnnn's guerrillas the
same who murdered len. MeCook were ap
proaching the 'own and thev would, doubt
less, search cve-y house to seo if any sick or
wounditd inrkees' bad lieen left behind.
This was cheering intelligence but I could not
get away, and 1 had tlioiit made up my mind
to submit to what seemed inevitable capture
hut 1 didn't want the rascals to get my
money so I pave my cash all but $100 to Mrs.
Day, and told her to keep it. It had gotten
on to near 1) o'clock, arid while tea was being
prepared I lay down in my room, the door of
which opened in a ball leading to the street
In my exhausted condition I was not long in
relajising into an unconscious state, from
which I was suddenly aroused by some one
knocking on my door.
"I approached the door and demanded why
I had been difturlied. 'It me in,' was the
reply, in a won au's voice. This answer only
ooufirmed me in the lielief that I had been
trapped, and thit my betrayer was, possibly,
some woman who knew I had not left the
town with thei.rrny, hut I replied as bravely
as circurastancrs would permit: 'I know uo
woman who ha any business with me, so got
nway from tha. dixir or I will shoot through
it. To this threat tho answer came: 'For
God's sake let n o in, and that quickly. I am
Puulino Cushn an. You did me a service
once and I havo come to repay It.' This I
didn't boliove, but I was too weak to longer
contend, and 1 openod the door, through
which immediately cumo Miss Cushman. I
recognized her instantly, although she was
dressed in male attire and had hnr beautiful
hair cut as.cloias that of asoldier. I grasped
her handa with a flood of questions upon my
lips, but she silriicod ull by saying: 'We have
no tinio for bilking now; you must, come
with me ct onc j.'
"Strange as i : may seem I had not a thought
of treachery. I instinctively felt that she
had come t. sa-'e mo from her friends and to
place mo into t ie bands of my own. I tot
tered to Mrs. Day's room, drank a cup or tea,
got ray money, all but a $100 bill I compelled
her to keep, an I dragged myself to the street
door, In front of which mi old fashioned
carryall was st Hiding. With the help of the
driver MUi v.' lshmnn assisted me into the
vehicle, and v ivrru olf, whither I neither
knew nor cam! ; I was so near dead by this
time that I wouldn't have Dipped pennies for
tho chance of living. Miss Cushman held
my head iu her lap during that long, rough
ride, which con-mined tho rest of the night,
for just as day was breaking over the mount
ains wo euteted Deckard's Station. We
drove at once t the depot, in front of which
a train for CI attanooga was standing. A
few hurried words to Che ofliciul iu charge
from Miss Cushman secured me a seat in the
cars, which wera ready to start, and a moment
afterward I was kissing the band of 'the
Confederate spy good-by. She stooped and
whispered: 'I tevor forget those who nave
dared and done for me, I care not' what uni
form they wear ,' and in the gray light of the
morning she all iped away and I never saw
her again. I w as placed in a hospital and
soon recovered to rejoin my command, but
never until the bugles of God sound 'recall'
for me will I forget Pauline Cushman or
cease to love aid respect her. Confederate
spy though she was, in my heart of hearts
she shall ever be a blessed memory." Bt

THE TOILET OF DEATH.
Preparing; French Criminals for the Kali
of the Unillottne'. Knife.
Toward 4 or 5 o'clock, when everything is
ready outside, the warden of the prison, ac
companied by several officials, goes to the
condemned man's cell, and, shaking him by
the shoulder, announces that his demand for
a pardon has been rejected, says a Paris let
ter. As soon as the prisoner has dressed him
self he is, if be so desires, left alone with the
chaplain for a few moments; afterward he is
led to tho toilet room. First, his shirt collar
Is cut away sufficiently to allow the guillotine
knife to fall upon his bare neck ; then be is
fastened with a cord starting from the shoul
ders and connecting with another cord that
binds the two wrists; a third cord goes from
the wrist to the knees, where it is joined to
another cord already passed around the legs.
Thus strapped the culprit is obliged to
march as straight as an I, with his bead
thrown back. When tho preparations are
ended the procession starts for the guillo
tine, tho prisoner being supported by two of
the headsman's aids and accompanied by tho
executioner, tho chaplain and the other ofli
cials. The huge prison doors are thrown
open and the lirst object tho condemned man
sees is tho black trapeziform knife, which,
contrary to the general impression, is not
com.-ealed from hU gay-o. The distance from
the door to tho guillotine U scarcely twenty
stops, and as soon as the criminal reaches the
swinging Ixvird the chaplain quits him, the
executioner sclzis him and pushes him on to
tho bascule. Paul Pun! a click and a thud;
tho fall of tho knife, tho heavy sound of
the tKKly falling into the brand liox. The
movements aro almost simultaneous. The
knife falls. The criminal disappears.
As soon as tho ceremony is over the hody is
pla-d in a wagon and conveyed to Ivey
cemetery, where it is buried in tho turnip
field. When the parents reclaim the Ixxly
lAd it is interred iu another part of the ceme
tery no name is ever put upon the headstone,
in order not to excite public curiosity. When
tho liody is not reclaimed the prefect of
Mlico authorizes tho faculty of medicine to
take it. Strictly speaking, the corpse ought
not -to lie delivered to the faculty until after
twenty-four hours, this delay being accorded
to tho family to mako its demand; but the
custom is to give up the body immediately
after a simulated burial when the authorities
aro certain that it will not bo reclaimed.
During the whole of this lugubrious cere
mony tho chief executioner never touches tho
victim. The toilet and all the operations
that require contact with his person aro per
formed by the aids. Paris Letter.

Profo-sor Henry Heals, a fellow of the
Royal Society of lxndon, has bo?n making a
special search for "rocking stones." His
journcyings have lieen very successful. His
search for "nx kiug stones" has beeu made in
conjunction with geologists on tho Continent,
who are seeking to establish beyond contro
versy tho theory that these great roks and
curiously balanced stories, which in many in
stances are as largo as a small house, were
carried on floating icebergs during tho mys
terious era known as the glacial period. Of
tho rocking stones he has discovered but one
new example in addition to that already
known. This is at Noank, on tho farm of
Caleb Haley, a New York fish dealer.
This stone is estimated to weigh twenty-five
tons. It has a rocking scopo of six inches
and can lie readily moved by the hand. Only
one other stone is known of in New England
that Laiiesborough, Mass. A photograph has
been taken of Mohegau Rock, also known as
Shehagan, hi tho town of Montvillo. This
rock was used ns a fortress and wutch tower
by the Mohegau Indians. It Is now known
to be the largest specimen of erratic bowlder
in this country thus far discovered. It Is
forty-five feet high and seventy feet long,
and is calculated by scientists to weigh 10,000
tons, an enormous load for a floe of ice to
carry. It is evidenced by the large flakes of
the stone which the Insinuating frost and
storms of centuries have chipped from it.
One of these fragments is sixty feet long and
twelve feet thick, aud its estimated weight ts

The Soap I come to speak about
is the Great Santa Claus.
Tis good for every purpose.
For which a soap is needed,
And joy will bring to
Who has wise counsel
spent a nickel, just to
What wonders it will do,
To lighten labor, save expense
And make things bright and new.
