mile off shore, and while Montgomery
was making a tack.a sndden gust of wind
capsi -.ed the yacht, precipitating Mont-gome-y
and bis friends into the water.
Captein Napier, of the tug Fashion, saw
the incident, and hastening to the cap
sized yacht rescued the five men. Charles
F.mrirh, however, was so exhausted from
the si ock and exposure that he died while
being taken to the hospital.
Lombard's Struggle for Life.
Chwlc Iximbard, one of the rescued,
tells the following story of the combat in
thewUer: "I swam to the boat and was
about pulling myself up so as to get
astrii'e the keel, when two of the men
grabted me and pulled me back into the
water, and ail three of us sank down sev
eral feet. They clung tome like mad
men, and I was forced to fight them. I
struck Kelly in the face and he let go, but
I had fairly to pound Davis, who by this
time had me around the neck. The mo
nient Kelly's hold was loosened he used
all bi- remaining strength to seize the
boat f nd pull himself up."
A Close Call for All of Them.
Proceeding Mr. Lombard said:
Havs, when I hiel mule him lot go. sank,
but a;- lie rose I seizd him by the collar and
lianlis him to the boat and imsed him up. In
the Jin nut ime Montgomery had secured a place
on the hull, bi t Kmrii h seized him b the leg,
and in the struggle which followed h-ith sank
hack 1 it o the w ater. Kelly and I imiiiuged to
fize tiicm as they rnmc up. a-id all of us were

FOOTBALL ON THANKSGIVING.

Net Yokk. Nov. 27. About 37,000 per
sons witnessed t lie long expecte.l football
game between Yale aud Princeton yester
day, n the grounds in this city, while
a,0iK) others viewed it from "Deadhead
Hill," the bluffs beyond the grounds. The
sight in the grand stand whs pretty in the
extreme. On every hand were the waving
colors of the different colleges, and these,
added to the brilliant costumes of the
women, made a bright ana animated
picture. The crowd, besides, wus an in

ST. Louis, Nov. 27. For the past year
an organization known as the Dutihters
of tho Conf. de-acy has been collecting
money to aid in the establishment cf a
home for disabled ex Confederates at
Higgir.sville, Mo. Last night a great ball
was given in the Merchants' Kxchange fir
the benefit of this fund. It was a wry
swell and very successful affair, but n
great many members of the G. A. 11. who
W re invited and who have been friendly
to the movement did not atteud. The rea
son is this: On each invitation was ti
v!iy pretty picture of the Confederate
flag in colors. It was the chief feature of
t le invitation, aud the G. A. It. men did
A Kepreaentative Veteran's Views.
Msj r Leo liassitir, ex-cotnmanderof tho
department of Missouri, said yesterday:
"I received an invitation, but I shall not
attend the b.ill. I don't question the
worthiness of the movement to provide r
home for destitute ex Confederate soldiery
but the appeal comes to me through the
the Daughters of the Confederacy," audi
don'ffeel friendly toward the Confederacy.
The Coufed.'tacy cost me four years of my
life, and they were not pleasant years,
either; and 1 think it is au affront to
flaunt the 'lost cause' in our faces asthese
ladies are doing.
Fought Four Years to Suppress It.
"They send us their circulars with the
rebel flag at the top, and having fought
four years to suppress that flag I don't
want it thrust so conspicuously under my
nose. It reminds me most unpleasantly
of the war. Yet I am perfectly friendly
to those who fought on the other side.
Some of my liest friends are among the
Confederates. Gratd Army men want no
ill-feeling. They want no mote war and
no more of the war spirit, aud yet thi
display of the rebel fl g displeased us.
Keeping Open the "Itloody Chasm."
"This talk of the Confederacy is, in my
judgment, a renewal of the old animosi
ties that we soldiers supposed to have
been buried when the war closed." Tho
question of the 'Daughters" was raised at
a reunion tf several Graud Army posts
the other evening. Nothing but sympa
thy was expressed for tho aims of the or
ganization, but strenuous objection was
made to their fl.inntiug, in the title of
their society, the "Lost Cause," and giv
ing it, as was thought, undue promi
nence. THE "RAG OF TREASON."

New Yoi:k Nov. 27 "But, in doing
honor to the people of the south, they
should not confront us with that stinking
rag of treason." These were the words of
General Palmer, commander-in-chief of
the Grand Army of the Republic, in the
course of his remarks at an early hour
yesterday morning at the banquet given
in his honor and also in honor of General
Charles II. Freeman, the state depatt
ment commander of the G. A. R., in the
Clarendon hotel, Brooklyn.
Honor to the Southern Vet
General Palmer said: "There's is no
class of men on God's earth that, are half
so appreciated for their gallantry and
valor, or that so reflected credit on Amer
ican valor, and w hom we are so willing
to forgive, as the soldiers of the south.
But we cannot forget the loss of hundred
of millions of money and of the lives of
hundreds of thousands of men who are
now lying iu their graves because of the
ltut None to the Southern Emblem.
"In doing honor to the people of t he
south they should not confront us with
that stinking old rag of treason. I re
lieve that the men who were in the strug
gle at the front want no more fighting,
but when we listen to the young scions,
who say that they will avenge the cause
of their fathers, is too niurh to bear in
silence. Loyalty to the stars and strifes
will ever nerve us in the cause of the

He did not husk miu Ii corn, ns his linv

to the farmer's daughter, aud so often did
he see and tlcmand a forfeit from the rosy
lips of his charmer, that he aroused the
jealousy of a stalwart youug f.irnier to
whom Bessie was engaged, and within
two days after the iiuskiug he was soundly
thrashed by the outraged lover, assisted
by Miss Hnuna's brother. Then he was
told to leave the town or his anatomy
