In thefaee of Shernmn's march tothe

Stuart he hoooine oroior earalrj gen

He was woimded three tinies slight

missiles The painful wcund was
received in M eiigHgenient oapp
Nashville, Tenn., after Bragg's re

this ot'casiou Qenoral Whecler's horse
was torn to pieces hy an exploding
shell, his aid was killed brside him
and hioaoolf wounded, but he mount
ed another horse, secured auother aid
and continued the light.
The Confederate Congrcss gave
General Wheeler a vote of tbanks
for successful military operations
and for his defense of the city of
Aiken. The State of South Caro
lina conferred a similar honor.
When the end came Oenerai
Wheeler found hiinself practically a
wanderer. He iirst came into politi
cal prominence early in the 80's,
when he waselected to Cougress from
the Kighth District,of Alabama. He
has been re-clected to each suoceed
ing Congress, save the Forty-eighth,
and was returned a meinher of the
present bodv bt the unanimous vote
of the district.
The Ules of the WOR department show
that every time during the last thiity
years that there hpj oaoo the slight
est chance of war, Oeneral Wlneler
filed a tender of his services to the
?mt nt. This was done at a
time arhea the luw prohibited his be
ing OOaaBfiOaiBaod and he would have
beea t-ompelled to serve iu the ranks.
When there was no longer any
doubt that there v.onld be a light
with Spain, the veteran was like the
old war horse which scents the battle
He was comniissioned Major-tJen
eral of \'olunteera on May 1th, and
with the appointment President Mc
Kinley plaeed in his charge the cav
alry division of the army then form
hlg t'or Uaba. The stories told of
him as the resultof the Cuban cam
paign would till. a book. He was
oa tntngly everywhere and he carried
his sixty-two years in a way that pro
voked the admiration of veteran
compaigners. In the charge it was
always, "Come on!"
At the battle of San Juan !ie was
the senior oflicer in immediate com
mand on the (ield, and was senior
flawaaber of thecommission which r.c
gotitited the surrender of Santiago
and ^:?,000 Spanish soldiers.
When the army came back from
Cuba Qeaeral Wheeler was assigned
to the command of the camps at
Montauk 1'oint, and it was here that
he experieuced one of the great sor
rows of hi8 life, for his youngest son,
Thomas, who was a cadet on the
cruiser Columbia, was drowned ou
the beach. The loss of his boy aged
the father ten years iu appearance,
but he retttrned to Washington when
Qbbbbj Wikoff was broken up and
eagerly sought service in the Philip
pines. In August of last year he
was given command of the First
Brigade, Secood Division, Fdght
Army Corps in the Thilippines.
One of General Wheeler's most
cherished possessions is the sword
which was given him last year by
the GhTOOd Army veterans of Boston.
He was the firot cotfederate veteran
to be invited by a nortbern G. A. R.

THE MODKKN EIMTOR.
The difference between journalism,
past and present, is this: The old
time journal was employed by the
editor as a means of exploiting his
own personal views, as a means of
keeping his personal ity before the
publie. The modern editor employs
his talents to exploit his newspaper,
keeping himself in the backgrouud,
and as much as possible from the
But the personality of the editor
is no less a fact and is no less
stamped upon every department of
the newspaper in this day and gen
eration. The model newspaper is by
no means an impersonal affair. In
order to have weight and inlluenceit
must have character, and in order to
have character there must be a man
of character at its head to determine
its editorial policy aud the character
and quality of its news.

SOMETHING ABOUT BOYS.
1'i'o "Jokir" Iniiii "i'olly."l
Wa will now take under eoneidera
tion three specimens of our bOfO.
First, the bashful boy. He is a
poor unfortunate fellow who never
knows if he should cross his feet m
his lap, put his hojftdl on the lloor
or hold thOBB at an impossible angle
to eaeh other; he never dares vcnUire
to 8it on more than oue-third of his
chair, and his franticefforts to niain
tain his cqtiilibriuni while thus partly
hOiODCed keeps all OOOI him in a
state of laughter. If a word be
addressed to him, he blushesfurious
ly, and altogether shows such con
fusion as to BBOke the speaker's con
science prick him for cruelty to
aninials. But, to his honor be it
said, the bashful boy is usuallygood
natured, kind-hearted and In
ofteu a favorite, and only oarea it to
his extreme sensitiveuess that he
thinks every one around him is study
injj him as an DOJCOOWfl quantitv,
when, if he but kne*v it, no one is
thinking of him unless he has done
BOOaa nnusual freak. Butwoetothe
bashful swain who stirts upon a
"courtingspree"; the timid advances,
the half-choked utterances and
stolen glances bestowed upon the
maiden of his choice are all noted
and commented upon. And of
ten is he "too backward in
coming forward," as the Irish
say, for the girl who waits for
the expected p'roposal from him will
have to be as patient as dob, exercis
ing the wisdom of serpents with the
harmlessness of doves, for fear of
frightcning him off; one case which
came uiider my own observation will
somewhat serve to show how a girl
will have to endure the uncertainty
of years. periiaps, if she waits for her
bashful lover. A young man, a friend
of this writer, had been pojiof his
attentions to a young lady for three
years and rumor said that wedding
bclls were to ring iu the verv
near future: some asked him if the
report were true, and his r.-ply w.i<
that he had OOtOf inentioned thesub
ject of marnag'.' to her, but it was
his expectation to do so. Boys, don't
be too bashful?your girFs patience
may OJOjbj out.
Second, let us consider the
tiresome young man; there are
really two kinds, the one who talks
too much and the one who
wou't talk at all, but of these two
evils the lirst, though dreadful, is to
be preferred. The mighty"Ego" takes
first runk and precedence of all else.
But yet is he to be prefered to the
sileut young man, who though you
may talk yourself deaf, dumb and
blind maintains the sanie obstinate
eilence, aud when you have conversed
on every subject you know, you
receive only the monosyllabic
answers, "yes" or "no," so, of cource,
you iiually give up in despair and
resign yourself to fate. He makes
one remark, his only one, and that
one on the single subject you have
not thought to menttonjyou feel that
if you are forced to talk to him live
minutes louger there will have to be
a lunacy blank filled out against you,
so you beat an ignominious retreat
and send the worst little brother you
have to entertaiu? him. Little bov, if
the rats have stoleu your tongue,
don't you go to see the girls; you just
atay at home till it grows again;
those girls don't want you; if they
have to talk to you they abuse you,
and if they can get out of talkiug to
you, they ridicule you, so take my
advice aud let them alone.
But then we have the nice young
man; I am not going to say we have
no nice young men, and for one, Iam
thankful tosay that we have, though
not enough by any means. We have
boys to-day8, who, though they have
their faults, are trust-worthy, honest,
industrious and brave boys on whom
our nation's honor may some day
safely rest; boys to whom a woman
may turn for help in her hour of
peril with the assurance that her
trust is not misplaeed; young men
who place their own high standard
of honor and duty above all else,
living up to their own convictions of
right and not heedinc the sneers and
criticisms of meaner souls beneath
them. Such a man it is an honor to
a woman to love. But never, pever
do we rind a man like this ready to
hurl his merciless ahafts of criticism
at the wcaker sex to whom mother,
sister and wife belong, but rather
would hedefend her vveakness by his
own strength, admittiag her faults
and excusing them by his own; ad
mitting her virtues and encouraging
her to higher aitns; reposing his
honor in her keeping, with the full
assurance she is worthy of the trust;
giving her the highest position (iod
hasgivenhim thepower togive?that
of his trusted wife and mother of
his children. A n.an like this BBekea
a woman almost an angel, and I
repeat; never do we had him ready to
decry a woman because she is a
woman. A man who cannot distin
guish a good woman from a bad one
is to be pilied and it is a suitable
punishment for him that he remain
forever incapable of so doing, living
his life without the knowledge that
there are good women and men
capable of making her so.
