i my recent journey round the world
I found at Lucknow, India, the remains
of the most merciless besiegement of
the ages, and I proceed to tell you that
:ory for four great reasons-to show
you what a horrid thing war is and to
dagou.U advocates for peace,to show
you what ,enuine Christian character

tion on Christian courrag(-. and to show
you how splendidly good people die.
As our train glided into the dimly
lighted station I asked the guard, "Is
this Lucknow?" and be answered,
"Lucknow," at the pronunciation of
which proper name strong emotions
rushed through body, mind and souL
The word is a synonym of suffering,
ct cruelty, of heroism, of horror such as
i; suggested by hardly any other word.
We have for 35 years been reading of
the agonies there endured and the dar
ing deeds there witnessed. It was my
great desire tc have some one who had
witnessed the scenes transacted in Luck
now in 1857 conduct us over the place.
We found just the man. He was a young
soldier at the time the greatest mutiny
of the ages broke out, and he was put
with others inside the residency, which
_was a cluster of buildings making a
gortress in which th-~ representatives of
ie English - gJvernment lived and
which 'wdst be the scene of an endur
ance and a bombardment the story of
which poetry and painting and history
and secular and sacred eloquence have
bceen trying to depict. Our escort not
only had a good memory of what had
happened, but had talent enough to re
hearse the tragedy.
In the early part of 1857 all over In
dia the natives were ready to break out
in rebellion against all foreigners and
especially against the civil and mili
tary representatives of the English gov
A half dozen causes are mentioned
for the feeling of discontent and insur
rection that was evidenced throughout
Inia. The most of these causes were
mere pretexts. Greased cartridges were
no doubt an exasperation. The grease
ordered by the English government to be
used on these cartrdges was taken from
cows or pigs, and grease to the Hindoos
is unclean, and to bite these cartridges
at the loading of the guns would be an
cffense to the Hindoo's religion. The
leadcrs of the Hindoos said that these
greased cartridges were only part of an
attempt by the English government to
--ua-ie the natives give up their religion;
hence unbounded indignation was
An"other cause of the mutiny was that
another large province of India had:
been annexed to the British empire,
and thousands of offiials in the employ
of the king of that province were thrown
out of position, and they were all ready
for trouble making.
Anoth~er cause was said to be the bad
*government exercised by some English
officials in India.
Th'e''T simple fact was that the natives
of India were a conquered race, and the
English wereEe conquerors. For 100
years the British scepter had been wav
ed over India, and the Indians wanted
to break that scepter. There never had
been any love or symi athy between the
natives of India an.. the Europeans.
There is none now.
Before the time of t.ie great mutiny
the English governmenit risked much
power in the hands of the' natives. Too
-many of them man red the forts. Too
- many of them wero in gcvernmental
employ. And now the time had come
for a wide outbreak. The natives had
persuad3ed themselves that they could
send the English government flying,
and to accomplish it dagger and sword
and firearms and mutilation and slaugh
-ter must do +heir worst
Horrors of the Siege.
It was evident in Lucknow that the
natives were about to rise and put to
death all the Europeans they could lay
their hands on, and into the residency
the Christian population of Lucknow
hastened for defense from the tigers in
human form which were growling for
their victims. The occupants of the re.si
dency, or fort, were-military and non
combatants, men, women and children
-in number about 1,692.
I suggest in one sentence some of the

fellows could not recover from the loss
of blood. They all died. Amputations
were performed without chloroform.
All the anesthetics were exhausted. A
fracture that in other climates and un
der other circumstances would have
come to easy convalescence here proved
fatal. Yonder was Dr. Fayrer's house,
who was surgeon of the place and is
now Queen Victoria's doctor. This up
per room was the officers' room, and
there Sir Henry Lawrence, our dear
commander, was wounded. While he
sat there a shell struck the room, and
some one suggested that he had better
leave the room, but he smiled and said,
'Lightning never strikes twice in the
same place.' Hardly had he said this
when another shell tore off his thigh,
and he was carried dying into Dr. Fay
rer's house on the other side of the road.
Sir Henry Lawrence had been in poor
health for a long time before the mu
tiny. He had been in the Indian service
for years, and he had started for Eng
land to recover his health, but getting
as far as Bombay the English govern
ment requested him to remain at least
awhile, for -he could not be spared in
such dangerous times. He came here to
Lucknow, and foreseeing the siege of
this residency had filled many of tLe
rooms with grain, without which the
residency would have been obliged to
surrender. There were also taken by
h-m into this residency rice and sugar
and charcoal and fodder for the oxen
and hay for the horses. But now, at
the time when all the people were look
ing to him for wisdom and courage,
Sir Henry is dying.'"
Our escort describes the scene, unique,
tender, beautiful and overpowering, and
while I stood on the very spot where
the sighs and groans of the besieged
and lacerated and broken hearted met
the whiz of bullets, and the demoniac
hiss of bursting shell, and the roar of
batteries, my escort gave me the partic
Tried to Do His Duty.
"As soon as Sir Henry was told that
he had not many hours to live he asked
the chaplain to administer to him the
holy communion. He felt particularly
anxious for the safety of the women in
the residency, who, at any moment,
might be subjected to the savages who
howled around the residency, their
breaking in only a matter of time un
less re-enforcements should come. He
would frequently say to those who sur
rounded his death couch: 'Save the la
dies. God help the poor women and
children!' He gave directions for the
desperate defense of the place. He ask
ed forgiveness of all those whom he
might unintentionally have neglected or
offended. Be left a message for all his
friends. He forgot not to give direction
for the care of his favorite horse. He
charged the officers, saying: 'By no
means surrender. Make no treaty or
compromise with the desperadoes. Die
fighting.' He took eharge of the asylum
he had established for the children of
soldiers. He gave directions for his bur
ial, saying: 'No nonsense, no fuss. Let
me be buried with the men.' He dic
tated his own epitaph, which I read
above his tomb: 'Here lies Henry Law
rence, who tried to do his duty. May
the Lord have mercy on his soul.' He
said: 'I would like to have a passage of
Scripture added to the words on my
grave, such as, "To the Lord our God be
long mercies and forgivenesses, though
we have rebelled against him." Isn't
it from Daniel?' So as brave a man as
England or India ever saw expired. The
soldiers lifted the cover from his face
and kissed him before they carried him
out. The chaplain offered a prayer.
Then they removed the great hero amid
the rattling hail of the guns and put
him down among other soldiers buried'

"There," said our escort, "Bob the

Bob the Nailer went with it." I said
to him, "Had you made up your minds
what you and the other sufferers would
do in case the fiends actually broke in?"
"Oh, yes!" said my escort. "We had

from the mercy of Go<d that we were

ourselves to get into the hands of ~ those
desperadoes. You must remember that

crowded until the whole floor was full.

I know the exact number, for I counted
their names on the roll. As one of the
ladies wrote in her diary-speaking of
these women she said, "They lay upon
the floor fitting into each other like bits
in a puzzle." Wives had obtained from
their husbands the promise that the hus
bands would shoot them rather than let
them fall into the hands of these desper
adoes. The women within the resi
dency were kept on the smallest allow
ance that would maintain life. No op
portunity of privacy. The death angel
and the birth angel touched wings as
they passed. Flies, mosquitoes, vermin
in full possession of the place, and these
women in momentary expectation that'
the enraged -savages would rush upon
them, in a violence of which club and
sword and torch and throat cutting
would be the milder forms.
Our escort told us again and again of
the bravery of these women. They did
not despair. They encouraged the sol
diery. They waited on the wounded and
dying in the hospital. They gave up
their-stockings for holders of the grape
shot. They solaced each other when
their children died. When a husband
or father fell, such prayers of sympathy
were offered as only women can offer.
They endured without complaint. They

The Guns of Belief.
Our escort told us that again and
again news had come that Havelock and
Outram were on the way to fetch these
besieged ones out of their wretchedness.
They bad received a letter from Havelock
rolled up in a quill aAd carried in the
mouth of a disguised messenger, a letter
telling them he was on the way, but the
next news was that Havelock had been
compelled to retreat. It was constant
vacillation between hope and despair.
But one day they heard the guns of re
lief sounding nearer and nearer. Yet all
the houses of Lucknow were fortresses
filled with armed miscreants, and every
step of Havelock and his army was con
tested-firing from housetops, firing
from windows, firing from doorways.
I asked our friend if he thought that
the world famous story of a Scotch lass
in her delirium hearing the Scotch bag
pipes advancing with the Scotch regi
ment was a true story. He said he did
not know but that is was true. Without
this man's telling me I knew from my
own observation that delirium some
times quickens some of the faculties,
and I rather think the Scotch lass in her
delirium was the first to hear the bag
pipes. I decline to believe that class of
people who would like to kill all the
poetry of the world and banish all the
fine sentiment. They tell us that Whit
tier's poem about Barbara Freitchie was
founded on a delusion, and that Long
fellow'spoems immortalized things that
never occurre. The Scotch lass did
hear the slogar- I almost heard it my
self as I stood inside the residency while
my escort told of the coming on of the
Seventy-eighth highland regiment.
"Were you present when Havelock
came in?" I asked, for I could suppress
the question no longer. His answer
"I was not at the moment present, but
with some other young fellows I saw
soldiers dancing while two highland
pipers played, and I said, 'What is all
this excitement?' Then we came up and
saw that Havelock was in, and Outram
was in, and the regiments were pouring
"Show us where they came in," I ex
claimed, for I knew that they did not
enter through the gate of the residency,
that being banked up inside to keep the
murderers out. "Here it is, " answered,
my escort. "Here it is-the embrasure
through which they came."
We walked up tothe spot. It is nowl
a broken down pile of bricks a dozen
yards from the gate. Long grass now,
but then a blood spattered, bullet scar

was 87 years ago, I saw them come in

"What then happened?" I said tomy

story of how many of the advancing ar

have tearful effect, and the story of suf

fort, and the announcement to children
that they were fatherless, and to wives
that they were widows, submerged the
shouts of joy with wailing of agony.
"But were you not embarrassed by
the arrival of Havelock and 1, 400 men
who brought no food with them?" He
answered: "Of course we were put on
smaller rations immediately in order
that they might share with us, but we
knew that the coming of this re-enforce

hands into the scars of the shattered

dead soldiers await the coming of the

could endure no more. My nerves were
all a-tremble, and my emotions were
wrung out, and I said, "Let us go." I
had seen the residency at Lucknow the
day before with a belove~d missionary,
and he told me many inter%sting facts
concerning the besiegement of that
place, but this morning I had seen it in
cmpany with one who in that awful
1857 of the Indian mutiny with his own
fire had fought the besiegers, and with
his own ear had heard the yell of the
miscreants as they tried to storm the
'walls, and with his own eyes had wt

Havelock was sick unto death. He had
received the message of congratulation
from Queen Victoria over his triumphs
and had been knighted, and such a re
ception as England never gave to any
man since Wellington came back from
Waterloo awaited his return. But he
will never again see his native land.
He has led his last army and planned the
last battle. Yet he is to gain another
victory. He declared it when in his last
hours he said to General Outram:- "I
die happy and contented. I have for 40
years so ruled my life that when death
came I might face it without fear. To
die is gain." Indeed this was no new
sentimentality with him. He once stated
that in boyhood with four companions
he was accustomed to seek the "seclu
sion of one of the dormitories for pur
poses of devotion, though certain in
those days of being branded as Metho
dists and canting hypocrites." He had
in early life been immersed in a Baptist
church. He acknowledged God in every
vitory and says in one of his dispatches
that he owes it "to the power of the En
feld rifle in British hands, to British
pluck and to the blessing of Almighty
God on a most righteous cause." He
was accustomed to spend two hours ev
ery morning in prayer and Bible read
ing, and if the army was to march at 8
o'clock he arose for purposes of religious
devotion at 6 o'clock, and if the army
was to march at 6 o'clock he arose at 4.
Sir Henry Havelock, the son in
whose arms the father died, when I
came through London invited three of
the heroes of Lucknow to meet me at
his table and told me concerning his
father some most inspiring and Chris
tian things. He said: "My father knew
at what fear was. He would say to me
in the morning as he came out of his
tent, 'Harry, have you read the book?'
'Yes.' 'Have you said your prayers?'
'Yes.' 'Have you had your breakfast?'
'Yes.' 'Come, then, and let us mount
and go out to be shot at and die like
gentlemen.' '.' The three other heroes
of Lucknow at that table told of Gen
eral flavelock other things just as stir
ring. What a speech that was Havelock
made to his soldiers as he started for
Cawnpur, India: "Over 200 of our race
are still alive in Cawnpur. With God's
help we will save them from .death. I
am trying you severely, my men, but I
know what you are made of." The en

A plain monument marks Havelock's
grave, but the epitaph is as beautiful
and comprehensive as anything I have
ver gseen, and I copied it then and
here, and it is as follows: "Here rest
the mortal remains of Henry Havelock,
major general in the British army and
Knight Commander of the Bath, who
died at Dilkoosha Lucknow of dysentry

paign in which he achieved immortal
fame, on the 24th of November, 1857.
He was born on the 5th of April, 1795,
at Bishops, Wermouth county, Durham,
England. Entered the army 1815.
Came to India 1823 and served there
with little interruption till his death.
He bore an honorable part in the wars

his life to show that the profession of a

man's tomb. His widow reared the
tombstone. Do you say, "Let him- sleep
in the region where he did his grandest
deeds?" The same reason would have

Vicksburg, and Stonewall Jackson far
away from his beloved Lexington, Va.
Take him home, 0 England! The res

not hear the roll of the organ when it
sounds through the venerable abbey the
national anthem. But it would hear the
same trumpet that brings up from
among those sacred walls the form of
Outram, his fellow hero in the over
throw of the Indian mutiny. Let par
liament make appropriation from the
national treasury, and some great war
ship under some favorite admiral sail
across Mediterranean and Arabian seas,
and wait at Bombay harbor for the
coming of this conqueror of conquerors,
and then, saluted by the shipping of all
free nations, let him pass on and pass
up and come under the arches of the
abbey and along the aisles where have
been carried the mightiest dead of
Some audiences and some readers are
so slow of. thought and so stupid that
they need an application made of every
subject. But the people who get this
sermon have made the application for
themselves already. I challenge you-to
say whether or not I have kept my
promise when in the opening of this dis
course I said I would show you four
things-what an awful affair war is,
what genuine Christian character is un
der bombardment, what is the coronation
of Christian courage and how splendid

A Wooden-Legged Cow.
[Harper's Young People.]
A Pennsylvania cow rejoices in tb
distinction of a wooden leg. Havin
lost one of her four supporters tbroug
a rafiroad train wbich cut it off belo
the knee, a veterinary surgeon took tb
wounded auiual in hand, and throug
his skill and care her life was saved. .
cabinet maker completed thE good wor
by manufacturing a wooden leg th
seemed to answer every purpose: an(
when the stump of the leg healed, tb
artifi::ial substitute was successfull
strapped on. At first the cow persiste
in hopping along on three legs, an
holding the injured one up from tb
ground; but berore long she grew tire
of this, and cautiously tried the woode
one. At last scounts she was doic
very well with it, although goir
about with a decided' limp; and she h2
the proud distinction of being the on
cow in the world with a wooden leg.
