Novel Cattle-Feed lug A special disjiatcli from Chicago to the Philadelphia ledger reads as follows “‘lt will revolutionize the busi ness of feeding cattle and make meat cheaper ami bettor than ever be fore, besides saving millions of dol lars to stock men,' said an attorney who is interested in the invention of John Hammer for the economical feeding and fattening of cattle. 'The invention is not a theoreli eal stage,' he continued, ‘but has been given practical tests which prove that it will do all that is claim ed for it make a bushel of corn go us far as two bushels now go in the fattening of stock.' “Hummer's device consists of a large galvanized iron ease, with drawers, to serve as receptacles for shelled corn, each drawer having a capacity of half a bushel. On tin* top and on four sides of the ease Is placed common moss, such as may bo gathered in the woods 1 lie moss is three inches thick, and is compressed so as to form a huge s|K)tige for the retention of vva j ter. It is thoroughly damiM iicd. and in this moist atmosphere the corn begins to sprout almost imme diately. In four days the hard grain is converted into a mass of tender sprouts, fed by the softened pulp. ' It. is then ready for feeding to live stock or poultry. The claims made for lliis process are: ‘‘lt increases the weight by the growth of the grain up to lot) per cent; raiders the grain wholly di gestable and nutritive; brings to the grain by chemical changes val-) liable food elements not otherwise obtained; aids digestion of other! foods with which the grown grain comes in contact: supplies the best tonic that can be given to animals, converts corn, the great stock-feed ing material, into the ideal food for poultry and all young growing stock, and supplies at all seasons of the year a food to all animals which is the equivalent of the nutritious pastures of summer.” Wliut TJiey Haiti. 1 Penelope Charley called last night. !

A kinsman of mine, who fought on the losing side in the late war, gave me those pleasant anecdotes of Rob ert E. Leo, says a man in the St. Louis Pott- Pitpulch: “I was adjutant of a cavalry reg iment which took part in the West .Virginia campaign of Lee in 1861. One day my colonel invited me to accompany him to headquarters, which 1 was very glad to do, hoping to hear something of my family in Richmond, whom the general—re cently in that city—knew well. We found him sitting at the door of his tent which was pitched at the top of a rather steep bill. He gave us a cordial welcome and to me the home news I desired. While the conversation was in progress an or derly came galloping Up the hill, and dismounting, handed the gen oral a dispatch. He held it in his hand without breaking the seal, and said to the soldier: “You have rid den your horse hard and he is very much distressed; unbuckle the girths and let him breathe,” Another and more striking illus tration of this tenderness of heart in the great commander occurred at Petersburgduring the closing weeks of the seige. General lahj’s head quarters was in a private house be yond the reach, it was thought, of the Federal artillery. One morning lie was standing, with several mem bers of his staff, under a large tree, when a heavy shell landed not far distant. "Gentlemen," he said, "the enemy have evidently got in range and we had better retire." Of course, nolzody would retire un til the chief set the example. The next moment another shell crashed through the tree above their heads, and all followed his advice except himself. He slopped and for what do you supiKise 7 The shells had knocked down a uesl full of young birds, and when the retreating offi cers looked hack they saw General pick up the nest and place h care fully on one of the lower brunches of the tree, /ttirr- Ortin .
