General Stuart conceived the Idea of
flanking the right wing of the Federal
army. In carrying out this plan he com
pletely encircled the army of General Mc
Clellan. On the afternoon of June 12 he
left camp, ostensibly to go to northern Vir
ginia, but really on his flanking move
ment. The next day he descended upon
Tanstall's station and cut tbe teletpnoh
wire in order to interrupt Federal com
munication. While this was in progress a
small body of Federal cavalry appeared,
but perceiving the approach of the main
Confedrrate force retreated. The Con
federates charged the station and captured
a company of infantry. They then felled
trees and placed them on the track with
other obstructions. This was scarcely done
when a train came thunderiug down from
the direction of Richmond loaded with
Then it was that the engineer proved
himself the possessor of a cool head and a
stout heart. Seeing the obstructions on
the track and a large force of Confederate
cavalry be suspected danger, and disre
garding the flying bullets that whistled
about his head he put on a full head of
steam. The engine struck the obstruc
tions, knocked them out of the way, and
passed on without accident, thus saving
frovn capture and consignment to prisons a
train load of Union soldiers. The Confed
erates threw a close fire into the passing
train, killing and wounding a number of
the troops. Washington Star.
Suspended Animation. -"It
has been frequently said that trnth
is stranger than Action," remarked Dr.
Henry Powderly to a littla.party that were
discussing Washington rnring's romantic
story of "Rip Van Winkle" in the Lindell
rotunda. "I often think that I would like
to go to aleep and wake np in the full en
joyment of my faculties a century later
say about the Tear 2000. I believe that this
will be successfully done. Cases of sus
pended animation for considerable periods
of time frequently occur. I have myself
pronounced people dead who are now in
the full enjoyment of vigorous life, I have
no doubt that thousands of people have
been entombed alive after having been ex
amined by reputable and careful physi
cians. If the life force may be so com
pletely suspended for a day or two and
then resumed, why may it not be taken np
again after the lapse of a century or more?
"Irving makes Rip Van Winkle age dur
ing his twenty years' nap. That is, I think,
wrong. Should the life force be so com
pletely suspended that a man would not
require food there would he little or no
waste, and he would wake up as youthful
and vigorous as when he dozed off. I be
lieve that it will yet be possible for a man,
by takiug century naps, to enjoy a few
years of life during every century for 1,000
years or more. I can see no good reason
for believing that the Nineteenth century
has witnessed the high tide of scientific
achievement." St. Louis Globe-Democrnt.

Baby Jack's Theology. "
The doctrine of original sin is a difficult
ne to controvert, taking the world at large
Into consideration, but it is one which Baby
Jack, aged twenty-three months, steadily
and sturdily refuses to admit into his
theology. He says, "Now I lay me," with
the utmost fervor and in a language of his
own, which only the audacity of a mother
would claim to mean anything. He asks
"Dod" to "b'ess" every one of his relatives
to the forty-fourth degree, not forgetting
his pet cat and "IIoo-Polly," the unclean
rag doll, but when mamma prompts,
"Please make Jack a good boy," Master
Jack says "Das" in a response as earnest
as that of any good Methodist brother.
"Das" means "yes," and Jack thinks he
is a good boy, and no moral suasion can
induce him to suggest to Providence that
ther is the slightest necessity for making

This is toe general verdict
with all who ns thn Laxative
Gam Drops. It is well- known
that many diseases, especially
fevers and nervous troubles, be
bin with indigestion. Whwn
the stomach and bowels are
cIo?gel with material that
ought to pass off, th absor
bents make an effort to remove
it. The result is that, much of
it is taken into the blood and
the whole source of the Hf ur
rent is thus poisoned. Th Lax
ative Gam Drops restore the
proper acrron to the digestive
organs and thus enable the sys
tem to throw off this waste ma
terial. When this is done thu
system soon recovers its normal
tone. The chief benefit of thse
gum drops is that they can be
taken without any lee mg of
medicine tor there is no bad
taste about them, nor do they
cause giiping. In fact many
people aie restored to heilth by
