EVXER YTLIURSDAY AT

The Confederate Dead.
BY COL. THEODORE O'HARA.
[The following lines are unsurpassed
any}.hing of their kind in the English
language. They are touching, beau
tiful, eloquent and grand. One of the
stanzas now adorns a monument in a
Boston cemetery-yes, even in culti
vated, conceited Boston, where they
boast of their Longfellows, and Hol
mes', and look with contempt upon all
American literature that does not have
its birth in Massachusetts. The au

A., is now dead. He was on General

The brave and daring few ;
On Fame's eternal camping ground
Their silent tents are spread,
And Iory guards with solemn round
The bivouac of une ar..
No answer to the foe's advance
Now swells upon the wind ;
No troubled thought at midnigh
Of loved ones left behind ;
No vision of the morrow's strife
The warrior's dreani alarms
No braying horn nor screaming fife
At dawn shall call to arms.
Their shivered swords are red with rust
Their plumed heads are bowed,
Their hauhty banner, trailed in dust,
Is now their martial shroud ;
And plenteous funeral tears hav<
Their red stains from each brow,
And their proud forms in battle gushed
Are free from anglish now.
The neighing steed, the flashing bladi
The trumpet's stirring blast,
The charge, the dreadful cannonade,
The din and shout are past ;
Not war's wild note, nor glory's peal
Shall fill with fierce delight,
Those breasts that never more shal
The rapture of the fight.
Like the dread northern hurricane
= That sweeps his broad plateau,
Flushed with the triumph yet to gain
Came down the serried foe ;
Our heroes felt the shock and leapt
To meet them on the plain ;
And long the pitying sky hath wept
Above our gallant slain.
Sons of the consecrated ground,
Ye must not slumber there,
Where stranger steps and tongues re
Along the endless air ;
Your own proud land's heroic soil
> Shall be your fitter grave ;
She claims from war his richest spoil,
The ashes of her brave.
So'neath their parent's turf they rest
Far from the gory field ;
Borne to a Spartan niother's breast,
On many a bloody shield ;
The sunshine of their native sky
Smiles sadly on them here,
And kindred hearts and eyes watch b)
The hero's sepulchre.
Rest on embalmed and sainted dead
Dear as the bloody brave ;
No impious footsteps here shall treat
The herbage of your grave ;
N~or shall your glory be forgot
Where valor proudly sleeps.
Yon marble minstrel's voiceless tone
In deathless song shall tell,
W~hen many a vanquished age hat!
The story how you fell ;
Nor wvreek, nor change, nor winter'i
No tim'remorseless dom

That gilds your glorious tomb.

No honor for him in braid or in bar,

Only a private ! one more here slain
On the field lies silent and chill!
And ini the far South a wife prays il

He will need no tablet nor stone ;
For the mosses and vines o'er his grav

A Railroad Story with a Moral.
It was a stride forward when Colonel
Talcott was set over the Danville. He
has the instincts of a gentleman. An
experience of one or two years ago with
some of the dethroned officials discov
ered to me that their genius did not
outcrop in civil behavior "usual among
gentlemen." The thing that turns a
decent stomach is to come in contact
with a hog with the epaulets of au
thority. As soon as I find myself in
his sty, I climb out, wash with carbolic
soap, and count myself "unclean until
the evening," as the Levitical law en
joins. I saw Talcott lately in behalf
of a Methodist charity work. He did
not grant the request, but his fine,
bearing, like a scented salve, healed the
disappointment in an hour. It is re
corded of John Churchill, Duke of
Marlborough, that men with wishes
ungratified left him in better humor
than they did the presence of dignita
ries who had consented to their desires
for positions and emoluments. So

. hose rare powers raised him from a
clerk to the control of a transcontinen
tal line-Mr. C. W. Smith. He left
Richmond half a decade ago for the
Vice-Presidency of the Southern Pa
cific Railroad. I keep one of his visit
ing cards with a pencil order on it to
stop his fastest train at a certain ob
scured depot if a severe necessity called
me there. With obliging words he
handed me the pasteboard slip with
the sufficient words on it, saying he
knew I would use it only in an ex
igency. I never stopped his quick
engines, but his friendly offices bore
fruit. Not long afterwards I was on
one of his rapid trains, when, by neg
lect of an employee, it collided at mid
night with a heavy engine. I was
knocked senseless for a minute. A
bone in my face was fractured. My
head looked like it had come out of
a "mill' with Sullivan. My limbs
were tattooed in blue bruises. I'bled
much, and a reporter published me as
used up. The thirst for knowledge got
the better of my bad wounds. I hob
bled to the smashed engines and heard
from first hands the story of the wreck.

This is About Eggs.
[N. Y. Sun.]
A man busily engaged in holding
eggs up before a candle attracted the
attention of a reporter in Thbird avenue,
near Forty-seventh street, the other
evening. An interview was the result,
and here it is :
"WVhat are you doing ?"
"Candling eggs. You see, I pick up
each egg and hold it before the candle.
The light shines through it. I can see
at a glance whether it is cracked or
speckled or spoiled. If it is cracked, I
set it aside to be sold at a low price.
Bakers and confectioners and some
prudent fa,nilies buy cracked eggs, and
they are as good as any eggs not
cracked, but they must be used within
"Is that not an old-fashioned way of
Yts ; but experience proves i1 to be
the best, and it is quick. An expert
can handle 30,000 eggs a day. it has
been tried to test eggs by water. A
good egg will sink and a bad egg will
foat, but you cannot find out a speckled
egg that way."
"What makes speckled eggs ?"
"Lying in one positiori. An egg
shold not be left many days in one
position. If an egg is turned every
day it will-keep a long time. An ex
periment was once tried by D. H. Den.
nis, president of the Dutches County
Creamery, as to how long an egg can
be kept good. He kept one on his
his desk nine months, and turned it
every day, and kept it good."
"How long are the best eggs kept
bofore they get upon the tables. of the
best hotels ?"
"It takes about four days, because
they are bought in bulk in the country,
and must be carefully assorted before
being placed on the market."
"Bow are imported eggs kept fronm
'spoiling on a voyage.?"
r".They are carefully watched and
turned. They come in cases easy tc
handle, and an expert soon learns tc
handle them quickly. It adds aboul
a quarter of a cent a dozen to the cost,
but we can pay that and the freight,
Sand yet sell the eggs that come fromt
SFrance and Germany cheaper than we
can sell Western eggs, and some thinki
they are better. We can get them herE
in about twelve days from France.
England also gets many eggs fromi
Germany and France."

Qualificationa for Marrying.
It may seem out of place to put the
following "Advice to Young Men," by
Bob Burdette, on the fourth page, but s<
it ought to be a family affair to look
after the qualifications above referred t4
to, and if the wife-hunting young man
will not read it because it is in the u
"Home Circle" department, the girls c
will do well to read it and remember
what part of it applies to the great
expectations about their efficiency in s1
all departments of house hold labor. J
here is what lie says: d
"You say you demand a domestic, e
useful woman as your wife. If that is
so, marry Nora Mulligan, your laun- s
dress daughter. She wears cow-hide f

son, that nine-tenths of the girls who
play the piano and sing so charmingly,
whom you in your limited knowledge
set down as mere butterflies of fashion,
are better fitted for wives than you are
for a husband. If you want to marry a
first-class cook and experienced house

hands, a face like the sunlight, and her
love will teach her all these things, my

[New York Herald.]
In Washington's time women had
scarcely any rights or opportunities out
of the domestic circle.
A married woman was a legal non
entity. The husband was the legal
guardian of the wife, or rather he pos
sessed all the rights of both. In law the
twain were one, and that one was the
To-day a wife is in many respects a
distinct, independent being in law.
She may acquire, hold, convey and will
property. She may engage in business,
carry on trade, made contracts. She
may sue and be sued, may enforce her
rights and defend them.
Both married and unmarried women
have acquired political rights. In cer
tain Territories a suffrage equal to that
enjoyed by men has been conferred on
them. In some States they may vote
for certain officers and hold certain
offices. Everywhere there is a growing
tendency to enlarge the political rights
of all women as there is to enlarge the
civil rights of married women.
Still more striking has been the open
ing of a vast and varied sphere for the
occupation of women. In literature
they have come to the front in lqrge
numbers. In trade and industries count
less thousands are employed. They are
found in office and store, in shop and
factory. A large proportion of the sex
have ceased to be dependents. They
have become wage earners and self
supporters. They are respected and
honored for battling with the necessi
ties of life and earning their own liveli

UNIoN, April 29.-On last Saturday
afternoon, near Sautuc, thirteen cars
of the regular freight train were ditched.
The engine had to go to Spartanburg
after hands and implements to clear the
track. This road is in a miserable con

are needed very badly, and it is never
