The glory of a Jqm uoontide WM
over the land. The little towa
of Harrisonbnrg. in the hetai
of the Shenandoah Yalley, lav
hatlied in sunshine. (Jreat hranches
of the beautiful trees shaded the side
walks and iu part the horsemen in
the streets. Citi/.ens seemed to be
urged by some unscen dangvr. Sev
eral groups of soldiers rode rapidly
forward and dL<mounted at a large
white house that etood at tlie end of
a long street, where mueh tnerry
uoise and chatter were aoon heard,
mingled with the clatter of dishes as
the soldiers were qnicklj served with
all the rations aSouthern housekeep
er could command at suoh ihort no
tice and the havoc that contenditig
aruiirs had left.
The Federal army was advaticing,
while Jmuob Iiad been orJered to
join Lee over the mountain andtl at
ittn totdkf Iiad already advaneed
several mil. .-?, with Ashby's eavalrv
prota ttttg bii rear and makiftg !?><??
tnont eautious in liis advauce.
Tom, Tetnple, Campbell, Col. Hall
and Capt. Grinisley had stopprd to
say good-byc at the "white houee."
The venerable "I'ncle DoOfW and
hiswife were wcll-known I'nionists,
but also well-known as friends of
soldiers of both artnies, and 6MWO
ially to Maryland and Yirginia boys.
'I'he soldiers did uot take tim to
utibuckle eabers or pistols, but talk
ed to the prctty cousiDJ and sweet
hearts with watchful eyes upon their
horses, which were impatiently paw
:ng, as if tlny knew it was tiiuc to
join the eoinpany rapidly passlng.
As 1'ncle Pouglas ItOOd in the
porch a noble-lookiug otlieer upon a
large white horse stopped a inonient
and said: " llow do you do to-dav,
Col. Grey? Will you tell the young
tnen that the enemy is advancing,
and to n-join their eoniniand at
OMtf" 111.-3 voice was as gentle M a
womau's, but as elear as a silver bell.
Col. Gray answeivd. '?(.\ rtainlv,
Cen. Ashbv!" and, turning, rcpwtld
the order to a young girl on the
porch who was saying a fiw last
words to thrce or four young eaval
ryinen gathered around her, aud Um
order was instantly* obeyed. The
handsonie young eaptain bent to
whisper one parting word, the gay
high privateheld one instant the lit?
tle hand that trembled in his, there
was a spirited sutnmona froni tlu
luncheon table, packages were hastily
thrust into haversaeks, ealurs elank
ed and the group mounted (piieklv,
Aahby paused to accept the glass
of rieh milk Nellie brought to hun.
As he returned the glass to her, she
standing near to say a fareweil word
to the chieftaiu they all loved?their
Chevalier, "wilhout fear and without
reproach"?he bent till tho lotlf os
trich plunie touched his saddle bow
and said,so softly, that onlv she and
the young eaptain who ttood uear
hercould hear: *'l raapcot that fel
low of trying toget thcongb thelinea
to obtain information a little niore
frt(|uent!y than is lifficiirj, and if
the YanKeee catch n>y ht-st seout, I
8hall know who is to blatne." Nellie
blushed d*t-ply, and Capt. llilary
laught-d gayiy a*-, onee tnore pivasing
the girl's little hand, he mounted
his gallatit stivd atul M>t rt-aiy to
ride with his chieftaiu,
A>hhy wus an idol with his meu,
and he looked cvtrv ineh the genUe*
nian mid ^obiit-r that he was. lle
sat his horsi- if Iu* weN a part of it.
His broad hat lb?4ed a Dobk white
forelu-ail, his ilark ejfi glowcd with
untatnable npiri aind th? long black
beard that ft iI down to his breast
gave added tlignity to his appear
auce. BfSVt as a lion antl getit'.e as
a wotnan, he was lecklees in battle,
but as courteous at:d tnagnanimous
to prisoners a* wus the Hlack IVince
of an older liaie, His inen would
havegone tbrongb liie goided l?y the
Ha8h of his a?ber.
When about starting he turned in
his eaddle and looked along the long,
broad street and said quietly: "Look!
there is the head of the enemy's col
umn. RScm at a ^uick trot, four
abreast. We are leading to M atu
bush, they suspect, and will notfol
low too closely. As soon as t?\er the
hill, gallop to the command.
On the green hill above the town
a picket sat his horse, the whole lig
ure like a statue of perfect niold out^
lined agauist the blue sky. Slowly
itnow moved, gradually failmg be
hind the hill, and with agtvat clatter
?the liucktailo, a fine rennsylvania
regmient that had chosen as their
*-iul)l*in the btick t;iil, and with it
deeoraGd their iiats? tliuntlered
tlown the street.
Already accustouied to the (ptick
changes of the panorama of war, the
gay young girls fi lt no tenor for
their soldier friends and their gallant
leafar. They watched with keen in
K-rest from behind the curtaina as
tuetine-looking Hucktaild dashed by,
langhing aecretly, for they' fancied
aa amhuab in the green meadow be
yond, where their frienda, the boya
in gray, would win a victory.
Booo th. rattle of musketry was
heard; then riderle88 hor8ea daahed
j back and liniping atraggler8 in blue
went slowly by to the improviaed
hospital in the deaerted schoolhouse.
Some atopped at the white house
door and wert refreshed with butter
mi!k by Col. Gray aa he auxionsly
asked news of the fight. A party of
surgcuiis and hospital attendants re
quested refreshments and he cour
teouslv nsked them to stay for sup
per. "Grandma," assisted by her
servauts, ministered to them, bnt the
girls would not 8ee them. Thev
told <>f the tight; how they had tried
time and again to advance, bnt had
been obligrd to retire; that Col. Per
ey Wvii.lhani wascaptured aftergal
lant Jighting and that the leader of
the ltebel cavalry had been killed.
This langnage waa nsed: "Mere men
conld not resist them. We can
stand as mnch as most men, but de
mona were too inuch for ns. We had
to back down this time anyhow."
Col. Gray listened with vrrave at
tention. Althongh an earnest I'nioii
nian, Gen. Ashhy was his friend
and he said: ''The report of AshbyTs
death followi everv skinnish." Maj.
Kankin replied courteously; "I fear
you will lind it true this time, Col.
(I raj, for at every house we passed
this afternoon we heard weeping.
When the Kederal oflicers had gone
the ^irls rnshed in to ask what sto
ries "the horrid old Vankeea had
told." Wbea the sad newa was an
nounced they refused to believe it;
thev wonld notadmit that their hero
Ashby was killed, but they could on
Ij wait in their anxiety. "Cupid
would soon come," and they would
"know all." Cupid, a tail negro
mun. was the body guard of Capt
llilary and his brother. He had
etrtd for them since their babyhood.
He had taught them to ride, hunt
and ewiin and when Charlea entered
the arniy a.s eaptain Cupid went too,
as his eook.
Night came, but they could not
tletp, i'iling pillowa upon thefloor
they gathertd around "Grandma,"
who tried to aoothe the frightened
girls, while "I'ncle Douglas" praved
that these awful times might soon
Oltee and his beloved country once
m.nv bi at peace. They aat in dark
Ittl they arouse the suspicioua
of the yankee aentinel, whose tread
conld be heard aa he paced to and
fro on the street below.
A tap at the back door was an
?wered by Uticle Douglas, and in a
nioiuent Capt. llilary held his aister
in hia arma. "Thank God!" she
whispered. "O my boy! is Temple
safe? Is Cupid with you?
"Ves, yes, dear; we are all right,
but nearly starved."
The girls gathered eagerly around
their daring \i*itor, while Cupid,
stationed near the door io guard
againat aurpriata, was at once aup
plied with piep, uheeae and biacuit
The young people ipokt in whis

it cast atrange shadowj.; and as one
ray fell upou the blackened face of
the young eaptain the girls laughed
hysterically. Nellie whiapered: l(.0
Charlie, that is so dangeroua! You
might be caught and they would call
you a spy."
"O, no feai! We are two runaway
tUfet. Don't look so scared, little
girl. You ought to he*r Cupid bosa
the yankees. They alwaya let him
pasa with any 'brudder' he may have
along. Bot we must be gone in an
hour," oontinued Captain llilary aa
he ate the lunch brought from
some hidden recesa.
"Charles," aaid Nellie, "you must
tell us somethiug. You are not like
yourself. Gay words don'tdeceive us.
Something is wrong. Is it?it isnU
"I thought I could tell Uncle
Douglas fnst," he answered "and. let
him tell yow all afterwarda. Itwasu't
very biave in nie, waa it?" And
then.with a voice that all hiaaoldier's
pride could hardly steady, he told
them of the gallant death of their
paladin. "You must listen quietly
and be very brave," he aaid; "walls
have ears." If you ory out they
will 8uspecr you; and even if we es
cape they will burn your house if
they think you have harbored ua.
They are rather aore over this even
ing'a tlght anyway. Ashby was
killed while leading a waveriug reg
inient to victory. We did not dare at
lirst to let the men know the leader
they thought invincible waa dead,
so we covered his face at once.
But they need not have been afraid.

avenged hia death, but a thousand

The Democratic National Conven

plank in sympathy with the brave
burghers and wish M them well.
When the Deinocrata took this action,
Mr. Davis Btepped upon the i)lalforin
and madea speech which shows that
Mr. Bryan is not the only orator on
earth. Tlieapeaker had his audience
with him,he waspassionately enthusi
astic over hia theme, and he made the
best of theaituation. The speech was
not long; and as an example of
foren8ic eloquence of the "spell
binding" order it is well worth
"Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of
the Convention?I appreciate very
highly the honorconferred on me in
invitingme toaay a few worda at this
time, and I ahall detain you but a few
moments. I have been honored by
another great party than this in the
paat. I have served that party and
have rendered services for all that I
received,and the account is balanced
now. (Great applause and chY.-r?. ?
Life, hunian life, is but a narrow one
between Iwo great unknown eterni
ties, and life is too short for a man to
aacrifice priuciples for mouey or for
public oflice. (Kulhusiastic applause
and cheers.) I have never yet ln-ard
a platfonn that waa so intcneill
Americati as that read here in this
convention. (Continued applause and
cheering.) Old conditions have peee

and gone?many of them?and new
queatione are t;ow beforc the Aineii
can people. I care not a anap of niv

I care uothing for oflice, becau8e 1

any you can give me, (Great applause
and cheers ^ and the tnan or news
paper that inakes the stafcinent that
I was forced to leave the Adminis

maliciously falsilies. I lovo liberty,
I love equality of rightd and 1 love
justice, aud when the party that I
belonged to waa too cowardly to take
a stand for liberty and against British
ariatocracy and mot.archy, 1 left it
and left it for good. (WiM and en

"ln every part of Kurope and
Africa the charge is made by the
British presaand the British oflicials
that there is a secret alliance between
this couutry and Great Britain, to
the effect that in case of any fotvign
nation attempting to intervene in
behalf of the poor Boers the great
Bepublic will stand by Great Bntain
with ita arniy and navy. (Cries of
"Not No!") I have yet to hear the
Adminiatration deny the report. ln
every address I have made since my
unfortunate viait to the Transvaal,
I have defended the \dministration
butlaaynow that 1 will never defend
it again,because it has not taken the
chance at ita National Convention to
tell the Anieriean people that weare
for liberty and lepubliean fovuia of

"I aywpathi^e with people atrng

for liberty in Armenia, I sympathized
with them as they struggled for lib?
erty in Greece and when the war broke
out with Spain we aaid then that
it waa a war not for conqneat, not
for territory, but for carrying liberty
to a people who were crying for help
at our feet. (Loud applause.) And
the boys marched up from the Xorth
land whose fathers once marched in
tattered blue with the song their
fathers loved, 'My Countrv, 'Tis of
Thee.' And the boys came from the
Southland whoae fathers once
marched in ragged gray to the music
of "Way Down South in Dixie.'
(Applause.) They followed the men
who atonceledthe Northern and
Southern armies down to Cuba and
into other lands and ialands of the
sea. They marched under one llag
in behalf of one country to the music
of one aplendid melody aa they felt
in their hearta the music that had

Miss Sniith was wellknowi, in

In Washington she was familiailv

She no longer aecepted invitations to
social functions and her cheeks, ouce

red with weeping.
To try to divert her mind the iu?

a iVnnsylvania avenue shop in
Washington, where they had been ta

No one knows to this day exactlv

Washington. It was urged upon
her that Washington had ahvady
