Southern Cross of Honor.
It was stated in tho Herald a low days
since that tho ladies of Laurons Chapter
Daughters of the Confederacy, would
furnish blank forms of application, or
Certificates of Eligibility, for Southern
Cross of Honor to bt presente-l to Con
federate Veterans. A number of these
blank forms havo been received, and more
will be received soon.
As was previously stated, it seems
necessary that Veterans applying for the
Southern Cross of Honor belong to some
Camp, as eaoh application must be ap
proved by officers of Camps, and also ap
proved by tho President of tho local
Veterans desirous of applying for a
Cross of Honor, and arc members of some
Camp, may find blank forms for tho pur
pose at tho Offioo of the Probate Judge,
or tho Herald Office.
Tho Crosses will coat the Veterans
nothing, the ladies of tho Chapter donat
ing them out of their own funds, But
e& di Vetoran recoiving a Cross is request
ed to havo his name engraved upon the
pin bar, and if not able to have this done,
tho Chapter will bear tho expense!
Tho blank forms of application?or
"Certificates of Eligibility," as they are
called?must bo filled out as follows:
1. Placo of present residence, member
of Camp No.??
2. Date of entering service, Company,
Regiment, Brigade, and when discharged
from service, aud rank held at time of
disohargo, signing name.

A Story of OrvmWen.
Cervantes once gave a proof that his
generosity was fully equal to his gen-,
lus. In tho early part of his life he was
for some time a slave in Algiers, and
there he devised a plan to free himself
and thirteen of his fellow sufferers.
One of them traitorously revealed tho
design, nnd they wero all brought be
fore the doy of Algiers, who promised
them their lives on condition that they
revealed tho contriver of the plot.
'T was that person," at once cried
Cervantes. "Save my companions and
let me perish alone."
The doy, struck by his Intrepidity,
opared his life, allowed him to be ran
somed nnd permitted him to go home.

THE BALKY HORSE.
A Little Trick Ti.ni, It in Said, Will
Start Him IdTery Time.
For the benefit of tboso who bavs
been caused a great deal of anxiety by
s balky borse, lost trains as well as
tempera ami sometimes even ruined
the borso, the noxt tlnio they havo the
experience to run across a balky horse,
no matter bow bad he Is, let me tell
you bow to start him ulucty-ulne times
out of a hundred.
Of course it muy fail one time In a
hundred. When a horso balks, no mat
ter how badly he sulks or how ugly he
is, do not beat him. Don't throw sand
lu his ears, don't use a rope on his
fore legs or oven burn straw under
him. Quietly go and pat him on the
head a moment. Take a hammer or
even pick up a stone In the street,
tell the driver to sit still, take his lines,
hold thorn quietly while you lift up
either front foot, give each nail a light
tap aud u good smart tap on the frog,
drop the foot quickly and then chirp
to him to go. In ninety-nine cases out
of a hundred the horse will go right on
about Iiis business, but the driver
must keep his lines tuut und not pull
or Jerk him back.
If I have tried this once, I havo tried
it 500 times, and every time I have
cuggested It people have laughed and
even bet $5 and bottles of .wine that X
could not do it. So far I have won ev
ery bet. This may mnko yon smile, but
a horse has more common sense than
most people are willing to glvo him
credit for. The secret of this little trick
is simply diversion. I am a Arm believ
er that with kindness and proper treat
ment a horse can be driven with a
string.?Horse Shoers' Journal.
The Iilttle Finger Umil.
Forty years ago in certain parts be
the United Stntes it was the custom to
giow long nails. I well remomber
some of tho swells and puffers who
devoted more attention to their little
finger nulls than they did to their
teeth, and often have I seen the fifth
digit with a claw on it an Inch and a
quarter In length. The nail was car
ried iu a stall, and on occasion was
split after tho manner of a steel or
quill pen, so that its wearer could sign
his name to a check with it, says a
writer in the New York Press. The
trimming of nails today is an art
which gives employment to many pret
ty women who stylo themselves mani
cures. Nearly every first class, up to
dato barber shop has its manioure,
who delights tho man needing a shave
or hair cut with an innocent flirtation.
She dresses garishly and has a strut on
her that would arouse the envy of a
saddle astride fox chaseress.
Where Women Propoie,
In the Ukraine, Russia, the woman
docs all the courting. When she falls
in love with a man, she goes to lps
houso and informs him of the state of
her feelings. If he reciprocates, all is
well, and the formal marriage is duly
arranged. If, however, he Is unwill
ing, she remains there, hoping to coax
him to a better mind. The poor fellow
cannot treat her with tho least dis
courtesy, nor has he tho consolation of
being nblc to turn 'her out, as her
friends In such n case would feel bound
to avenge the insult. His remedy,
therefore, if determined not to marry
her, Is to leave his home and stay away
as long as she Is in it. A similar prac
tice to that In the Ukraine exists among
the Zun! tribe of Indians. The woman
does all the courting and also controls
the situation after marriage. To her
belong all the children, nud descent,
including inheritance, Is also on her
Unlane Venice. ?
Venice is unique and nlwoys os long
as she exists will bo unique. The city
ts built on 117 islands connected by be
tween 850 and 400 brklgcs. There are
streets, all very narrow except in tho
neighborhood of St. Mark's, but the
gondola is tho universal means of
transportation. When you leave the
station, you find tho salt waves of the
Grand canal lapping against the mar
bio steps and gondolas drawn up
againBt them liko cabs and buses. If
you wish to keep nil the Illusions you
havo cherished about Venice, enter It at
sunset, at the full of the moon?on San
Marco's night if the calendar permits?
and depart before daybreak. Then you
will retain In your mind a picture of
tho Venice of song, story and tradition

The king of England who could not

In the battle of Bosworlh Field, 1485,
a king was killed (Richard III.) and n
king was crowned (Henry VII.).
The motto, "Dleu et Mon Droit," was
first assumed by Edward III. of Eng- I
land when he took the title of king of
"Tour majesty" as a royal title was
assumed In England in 1527 by Henry
VIII. Tho title before that was "your
grace" or "your highness" for the king
William IV. was st the timo when he
succeeded to the throne the first Wil
liam of Hanover, the second William
of Ireland and the third William of
Honry VUI. was.the first,to,assume
the title of king of Ireland The title
king of Great Britain was assumed by
James .VI. of Scotland when he became
James I. of England".
Richard I. was tho first to call him
self kingOf England. Every king from
William to Henry it. called himself
king of tfceJBngliah. The title i,was as
sumed by Egbert, the first king of
England, fh 828.
King of France was a title borno by
the monorchs of England for 432 years,
and when Elisabeth became queen of
England she va#elso*"kiug of France,"
asserting that If she could not bo n
queen she wooJd be king.
Once upon a time there was a spend
thrift Who made his father very un
happy through his profligate habits.
"My son," sold the parent, "you
spend every penny that you get, and
it must cease. Remember that the
pennies make shillings and the shil
lings make pounds. If you do not
change your habits of always spend
ing to habltB of Judicious saving, I will
not spare the rod."
The admonition had no good effect on
the youth, and he continued to spend
the pennies before they could accu
mulate into shillings.
His father spoke no more about the
matter, but he applied the rod most
vigorously,to him until he howled iwtth

Instinct of Horses In War.
Arabian horses manifest remarkable
courage in battle. It is said that when
a horse of this breed finds himself
wounded' and perceives that he will
not be able to bear his rider much
longer he quickly retires from the con
flict, bearing his master to a place of
safety while he has still sufficient
strength. But, on the other band, if
the rider la, wounded and falls to the
ground the faithful animal remains
beside him, unmindful of danger,

Napoleon end Ills Belief.
Napoleon, mnn of iron though he
was, gave great credence to the tales
of the suDcrnatural nnd was very su
perstitious, ifc placed great faith in
an amulet charm which he always car
ried about with him. Another of bis
superstitions was to ham tho famous
atr, "Marlborough s?en va-f-en guerre,"
whenever he mounted his charge for
battle. Strangely enough, at the hour
of bis great conflict M. de Las Oases
tells us that the dying man bummed
the old air. The Empress Josephine

all the more because the predictions
made to her In her Creole childhood
