who lived forty days on sips of water ,
which cost nothing. Their shot at
fame , measured by his standard , Is
like a little boy's arrow-flight at the
1,000-yard butts of Creedmore. The
well-nourished idle are improved phys
ically by a little starvation , yet it i
doubtful whether they would stand
11 even the eleven-cent regimen for for
ty days. But some of them , and som <
professors and chemists and experi
menters , since the days of Edwar-
Atkinson , have been demonstrating t
the poor man that life can be lived
for a day on next to nothing , just to
show him that he is a most extrava
gant person. The tendency of wages ,
wherever there is one workman more
than there are places , is to the low
est rate at which that man will con
sent to work. That tendency is beaten
back again and again by the unions ,
but It is ever present , and any low
ering of the average standard of liv
ing in any trade would give it a dan
gerous impulse. The one wretch iu
any calling who lives in miserly fash
ion will save beyond his fellows who
live rightly , ft is true ; but if his fare
and fashion became adopted by all ,
down would go wages in spite of the
unions , until , perhaps , it would be im
possible even for this Daniel Dancer to
add a penny to his pile. Luckily good
health of body and mind makes the
toiler demand the best meat and fresh
vegetables , good clothes for himself
and his family , and books and a mu
sical instrument in the house. And
while he's well fed and clothed and
housed his work will be better and
its product more. Vigorous and red-
blooded , he will demand his share of
this increase from time to time , and
get it , and better still will be his feed
ing , his raiment and his surroundings.
Silly folk , important enemies of prog
ress , are they.who would induce the
workingman to forswear his constant
cornetl beef and cabbage for the thin
and pale phantom of aliment that

The unusually heavy losses resulting
from the forest fires In the Adirondack
egion this year can hardly fail to re
vive public interest iu the necessity for
better forest control and a more gen
eral education of the people in for
estry" As a result of the drought
which prevailed throughout April and
May thousands o acres of the bes ;
of the Adirondack reserves were burn
ed and many summer homes and re
sorts were FwepT away. While th (
esson was a very costly one , runniuj
ip into the millions , the country doubt
ess stood in need of it. History shows
what is confirmed by science , that :
arge area of forest land is essentia
: o civilization. A treeless country
means a barren cotmtry , and a barren
ountry never attracts a progressive
people. It is certain to be inhabited
by the vagrant and non-producing
classes. There must be forests and
patches of woodland to retain mois
ture , to prevent droughts and to create
a soil for future agriculture. In Eu-
r * tritsf - * J * * * S > - * * * . ; "
rope of course , where the necessity
feT forest preservation Is more univer
sally recognized , an effort is made to
keep the proportion of woodland at
about one-fourth of the area of the
country , which is regarded as the cor
rect proportion to sustain the activities
of civilization and the welfare of the
people. Not only large forests , but
scattered woodlands must be preserv
ed. The hitter not only tend to check
evaporation and hold bodies of mois
ture for slow percolation Into springs ,
brooks and small rivers , to be fed
slowly to the surrounding country , but
they break the force of the wind , de
creasing the probability of hurricanes
and cyclones. The West has suffered
much more than the East from forest
fires , for the reason that the Western
forests are made up largely of resinous
woods. The West therefore should co
operate with the East in bringing
about more adequate systems of for
est control. Forest fires will not wait
for special sessions of State Legisla
tures , The force of forest wardens
in the timber States should be greatly
increased. There should be State and
Federal co-operation in the establish
ment of forestry schools all over the
country , such as exist in Austria , Eng
land , France , Italy , China and Japan.
This will cost the States a larger out
lay for forest preservation , but it
would be trifling compared to the mil
lions that have recently been swept
away in the Adirondack region.

"I remember Crook with his short
beard , but I remember him better with
the long , full beard he wore in the
70s and 80s. I was with him at the
battle of the Rosebud , June 17 , 1870 ,
ind remember on that day ho wore
his beard in two braids , one hanging
down on either side of his face like
the braids of a girl's hair. This did
not give him a grotesque appearance
but contributed in some way to em
phasize his unique individuality. It
did not suggest femininity or eccentric
ity , but rather a rugged sort of
independence and a dignified aloftness
that had marked influence over our
officers and men.
"He was the center of a notable
group that day and was the coolest
man on the field. His chief of staff ,
Major Nickersou , wore a long black
bnard and was a more picturesque

Anson Mills , commanding a third ,
proceeded to carry out their orders.
"Mills swept toward the other flank ,
went up a ravine , and burst suddenly
on the Indians , breaking their line.
To strengthen Mills for this attack.
Crook sent with him nearly all the
cavalry on escort duty , and taking
advantage of this , the Indians near
pressed in between the General and the
battalion operating under Mills. The
latter , however , divined the purpose
of the Indians , and sent one of his
companies to cut off the raiders , and
Crook himself , moved quickly up to the
battalion in motion. The result was
defeat for the Indians and a victory
for the quiet soldier who wore his
beard in I/raids , "
"Some men , " said the Captain , "re
member the incidents of battle and for

Others remember the anecdotes and
forget the battle Incidents , but Judge
I. 8. Anderson of the Fifth Wisconsin
remembers Incidents and anecdotes.
Some of the stories , at our regimental
reunions , are worth repeating. Speak
ing of General Hancock , remind d
him of Hugh O'NIel , of ready wit.
Hugh was coming into camp with hav
ersack and arms full , of sweet pota
toes and garden vegetables , and. in
sneaking past Hancock's headquarters ,
was confronted by Hancock himself.
"The General asked Hugh where he
jot the vegetables , and pressed the
question ivi such away that Hutrh
became rattled , and , In answer to the ,
peremptory 'Where did you get them.

permitted to go his way.

The First Bull Run Battle.
The first great battle of the war ,

time the news of so serious a reverse

elation to the people of the South.
But looking back at it from this dis

funny incidents ot which the famous
battle was so prolific.

DESERTIONS FROM THE NAVY.
Number is Very Small anil lln De
creased in Recent Years.
"The percentage of desertions in our
navy is not greater than 16 per cent
It is not true that they are whole
sale desertions from the United States
navy. There are desertions , of course ,
but , judging by recent reports , the
matter has been largely overdrawn
and exaggerated. The actual percent
age of desertions from the navy Is
not as great now as it was in IdOl ,
1S92 and 1893. Statistics show tlisit
desertions were heaviest in those three
years. It was never known why. "
This is the statement of Surgeon
Andrew M. Moore , United States navy ,
in the New Orleans Picayune.
"The recruiting service , " continued
Dr. Moore , "is now better systematiz
ed , better conducted and with better
results than it ever was before.
About S7/j per cent of the recruits
are American-born young meu , which
is most satisfactory , because for many
years a large percentage of the naval
recruits were of foreign birth. The
recruiting office in Chicago , which \ \ as
established iu 1897 , has 110 trouble
in securing all the recruits needed. Up
to the la t Congress the navy required
only 28,000 enlisted men and 7,500 ma
rines. The last Congress increased
the enlistment 3,000. Altogether , our
navy at its full strength numbers 3S.-
500 enlisted men of the various grades ,
( including marines.
"Many good recruits come from the
interior. They are usually procured by
writing letters to postmasters for the
names of young men the postmaster
thinks would like to see naval service.
When replies are received from these
letters others of the same sort are
mailed to the addresses furnished , and ,
in turn , other letters are sent out to
"Not only are the lists kept con
stantly full , but we are steadily rais
ing the standard of enlistment. I
think the percentage of desertion from
the United States navy Is much great
er than from foreign navies , whieli is
probably due to the fact that in our
sen-ice better opportunities are offered
to ambitious young men. The enlist
ed men of the navy see a great deal
of the world , and. American young
men , being quick to s-ej advantages , have
greater temptations to desert than iu
European navies , for in any of those
he would have few places to go in
which he could better himself. Our
men are better fed and better cared for
than in any foreign navy. We have
not so large a navy. England Las
probably 125,000 enlisted men , but we
'lo not need so great a navy. "

years an inveterate coffee drinker and
it is absolutely true that I had so completely -
pletely saturated myself with this drujf
that my complexion toward the last be
came perfectly yellow and every nerve
and fiber in me was affected by the
drugs in coffee.
"For days at a time I had been com
pelled to keep to my bed on account of
hervous headache and stomach trouble
and medicines did not give me any relief. ,
I had never consulted a physician in regard - f
gard to my headaches and terrible complexion - *

of them after I commenced the use of' '
Postam , which became known to me !

were all gone and my complexion had-
cleared wonderfully , then I knew that
my troubles had been caused by coffee
and had been cured when I left off cof
fee and drank Postum in its place. "
