ouly a little mito of a girl, just oit;ht years old,
when it nil liiipponed. 1 didn't know what it
was all about, but I knew thoro had boon a
great oscituniont in town for sotuo tiino.
There had boon something they called a con
volition hold in the old academy, and my
fathor made a speech. 1 hoard him. But ho
was always making speeches, being ft lawyer,
so that didn't make as much impression on my
mind as the fact that thorc sinco had boon a
groat parading through the streets or onr
town boys, dressed in gray coats and
pants with stripes on them, with a fife aud
drum at their head. Thoy called thnmsolvos
the ' Home Guard." And once a regiment or
real soldiorahad passed through tho town, yoll
ing and screaming for JofT Davis and s"tnK
their guns in tho air. Thoy wore called the
"Now Orleaus Tigers." They looked Iiko it.
Our school was brokon up, for our teachers
wore Northern ladies, and had to leave. How
I would like to know what has become or
Misses Hutlic aud Emma Gimp.
So I liad uolliing to do those days but play
and amuse my little two-ycarsold brother. I
was doing this now, sitting on tho lower stop or
the broad flight that led up to tho veranda,
whore the n-st of tho folks wore sitting. Papa
was residing n paper and smoking. Mamma,
looking vory pnlo and sad, was trying to sew,
but it was almost too dark. Bister was read
ing, and " Bud " was trying to teach his dog to
"lio down and die," which ho didn't want to
do at all. Suddenly wo all heard tho
tramp op soLDinns' fret
coming np tho street. Thoy had only been
soldiers a few days, so they didn't keep as per
fect time as I heard them afterward, but all
the same they callod thomsolvcs soldiers. Then
thoy halted tit our gato, and with a clash and
clatter brought their guns down ou tho brick
walk. Mv liourL almost iiininod out of my
mouth, and tho baby did jumpout of my arms.
1 loft him sitting thoro aud slipped down tho
walk bohiud my fathor as lio wont to moot
them. I was dreadfully scared, but I wanted
to sec what thoy wero going to do with my
" Well, boys, what do you want?" ho asked
With a torriblo oath one of them answered :
" Wo want jtou, sir," nud raised his gun as if to
Bhoot " What's to keep mo from blowiug your
heart out tioir t " ho asked so fiorcoly that I al
But papa was as calm and cool as if in tho
"Nothing in tho world, John, if you want
to do it," he said quietly. "But just tell me
what I have douo? I held you on my knee
when you wore a little boy. Surely, you wont
deny me the privilege of knowing what I am
to be bhot for ? "
John hung his head a little at this, and an
othor for they seemed to have no leader
took his place.
"Didn't you vote against secession tho other
day in the convention? "
' Didu't you make a speech against it ? "
"Woll, is nol that enough? Wo want no
Lincolnitos about here."
"Woll, boys," papa said, "I have had to
plead guilty to your charges, and if you think
that is onoiigh to shoot mo for, why I will havo
to dio. But you will surely givo mo time to
WIPE ANT) CHILDREN GOOD-BY?"
These boys wore not yot wholly hardened,
and ouo who had not spoken hoforo, now said :
" Woll, Col. F , I'll toll you whatwo'lldo.
"We'll givo you till to-morrow to got away from
horo or take tho oath and join our army. If
you.' are still here, and still a Liucoluite, you
may know what to oxpect."
"Vory well, Will," ho said, "I am thankful
for that much quartor. Still, you know how
impossible it will bo to got away from here,
with ovory rond guarded, and I know how im-
Sossiblo it will bo for mo to joiu your army.

when tho kitchen door rudely opened aud in
a ma GnonGiA soldier.
Ho looked at hor in amazement.
" Why, doyou smoke, bis; oris there is a man
" I 6inoko, of course," sho answered saucily,
aud to prove it placed tho pipe in her mouth.
lio rushed out aftor.two or three of his com
rades to see the sight, saying, "By jinks I'vo
soed tbcjilaguoy ok women in Gcorgy a-smokin ,
but I novor saw as leollo a gal as that a-niakhi'
tho smoke bile."
So sho had to smoke that pipe; and if sho
wasu't the sickost girl 1 Wc laughed, but papa
said sho was a little heroine.
At last tbo summons came. The guido and
tho men wore ready and so was papa; but oh,
avo would almost rather havo had him stay in
tho garret than start on that dangerous trip. I
was awakonod at midnight by his kiss and a
burning tear on my check. Then he was gone,
aud tho "30 days in a garrot" wereover.

Tho special officors sworn by tho Major demon

tho floor very gently and wcut in the house.
And lot me toll you that was the last time I
saw my pupa for many a day. Ho just went
iuto that house and melted away, it seemed to

Then mamma took meinliorrooai and talked
to me so earnestly about not saying anything
of it to anybody. Just as if 1 would! I felt
hurl at mamma a good while about that.
You see it was this way. Our house was two
stories high, hut a wing had boon built for a
dining room and kitchen, which was only ono
etory high, with a loft or garret. This garrot
came up oven with one of tho windows of tho
second story of the main building. Tho lowor
part of this window had been taken out and
replaced with a sliding door opening into tho
garret, which, when closed, lookod oxactly like
the rest of the wall, that boiug ceiled.
And this garrot was where my father lay
concealed for ho many woary days. I say " lay "
literally, for it was not high onough for him to
Klund upright, nud of a night mamma would

man, weighing ovor 200 pounds, and his position
whs certainly a hard ono. Oh, how often ho
fretted unA declared ho would not lie thoro
"like a nit in a oge,but go out and die like a
man." Then mamma would remind him of
his trial: wife and hulploK little children.
You sue, the only way of osoapQ to tho Union

night through tho Oumborland Mountains, and
this could only bo mado with a guide. The

"wmnsh it," And they did, from top to bottom,

with Compound Oxygon.
"I will toll you what I know about it," ho
replied. " Whou living in West Chester I suf

case of a young man who worked for us. Ho
had consumption aud hemorrhage after hemor

body ought to know the value of this romedy.

" Woll, thoro is a satisfactory moral effect
about taking medicine under tho direct super

It is a pleasant recreation, if I have a cold iu

" On the contrary. The heart is strengthened

March 20. Gen., 32 : 0-12, i 1-30.
One reading theso notes should first carefully
study the paragraph from tho Holy Scriptures &3
Subject: Jacob at Peniel.
In our last lesson wo studied tho account of
Jacob's first experience at Rethcl. (23 : 10-22.)
We learned of his dream, stono pillow, ladder,
tho Angels. Ho was on way to Padan-aram,
really to escape Esau's wrath, but professedly
for tho purpose of securing a wifo from among
tho relatives of Abraham. The dato was 2221
A. M. Jacob, leaving Bethel, passed on to
Mesopotamia. Ho soou fell iu with the familiea
of Haran and Laban. (29:1, 4, 5.) At length
Leah, Rachel, Zilpah and Bilhah becomo his
wives. (Ciiap. 29.) Leah wan mother of Eou
ben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar and Zebu
lun. (29:32-35; 30:17-20.) Bilhah was mother
of Dan and Naphtali. (30:5-8.) Zilpah was
mother of Gad and Ashcr. (Va. 10-13.) Eachel
begat Joseph. (Vs. 22. 23, 21.) Thu3 we fiud
Jacob with 11 sons, all born in Mesopotamia.
Years havo passed, and it is no wonder ho be
gan to think of I113 father and his old home in
Canaan, and quito decided to tako his family
and property and return. Laban, however,
mado him liberal oflera if ho would remain in
Padan-aram, and Jacob accepted tho proposi
tion. Abraham's grandson prospered very
greatly, surpassing in wcaUh oven Laban. Tho
consequences wero jealousy and trouble. Then
God appeared to Jacob and directed him to go
back to Canaan, and tho family of tho patriarch
fell in with tho plan. Knowing Laban would
oppose tho separation, Jacob saw ho must set
out quietly, and so cscapo resistance and delay.
After a timo Jacob's exodus was detected, and
Laban gathered somo forces and resolved to
ovcrtako tho fugitives. Ho caught up to them
aftor a timo and demanded from Jacob his rea
son for leaving without taking a formal de
parture, giving him an opportunity to bid
good-by to his daughters and grandchildren.
It was evident Jacob would not return. Then
tho two entered into certain treaties and stipu
lations. Tho spot where tho interview took
placo was named Jegar-sahadutha, or Galecd,
or Mizpcb. At length Laban's party and Ja
cob's separated, Laban returning to Mesopota
mia nud Jacob passing on toward his homo in
Conscious ho is in the land of Canaan, re
membering tho anger of Esau, ho begins to bo
apprehensive. To prcparo the way and to gain
somo idea of Esau's feelings toward him, ho
sends a number of his company to Edom to in
form his brother ho is coming. To make it
moro sure ho would be received kindly, ho in
structs tho messengers to tell Esau how pros
perous Jacob has been, how rich ho is, what a
largo body of servants he has, etc As soon as
Esau hears Jacob is on way back he sets out to
meet him with 400 men. This fact gives Jacob
great fear. Ho resolves to put on tho most
fiworablo appearance and try, if possible, to
win tho heart of Esau. First of all he wants
to impress his brother with a senso of tho great
success which had attended him in Padan
aram. Ho thinks wealth will attract the mind
and engage tho heart of Esau. Had Jacob return
ed a cringiug pauper, tho caso would havo been
very different. Jacob was to becomo no charge
to Esau. A dignified equipage, nnumerou3 rete
ll ue. a good financial status, all these arc rather
to be sought and recognized than opposed.
Jacob is far-seeing enough to utilize his knowl
edgo of human nature. When ono can mako a
mere gift of that which comes to band, (32: 13,)
nud tho present can consist of 5S0 valuablo
animals, (Vs. 11, 15,) tho owner must bo wealthy
indeed. Having done all this to gam tho
favor of Iiis brother, Jacob feels still the need
of divino assistance, and so betakes himself to
prayer. It was privato prayer. (V. 24.)
Wo fixed tho dato of Jacob's departure 2224
A. M. From 31:33, 41 wo find ho was with
Laban as an cmployo for 20 years. Then it is
evident ho was a scparato and independent
owner for somo time in Mesopotamia. We
genorally fix tho duration of Jacob's stay in
Padan-aram at 40 yeara. Tho date of tho pres
ent lesson would thcu bo 225-1 A. M., or 1710 B.
C. Isaac was 15G years old : Jacob and Esau

Tho Jabbok (V. 22) was a stream about 50
miles long, emptying from tho East into tho

from tho Jordan. Tho namo Pcniel means
" the face of God," a namo given to tho placo
by Jacob in memory of his experience with tho
Tho lesson is ono of tho night scenes of tho
Bible. Jacob prayed all night. There was a
visiblo presenco of Jehovah, a temporary ma
terializing of Deity. Our study is a report of
a kind of oucouutor between an incarnation of
God and Jacob.
Wo have in verses 9-12 tho first prayer re
corded in tho Bible. As such it is a good model.
Proper ascriptions are given to Deity. The
petitioner is humble. References aro mado to
God's promises a3 bases of tho prayer. (23: 13
15.) Thanks aro rendered for blessings already
received. Works aro joined to faith. (St.
James, 2:17.) Jacob did what ho could and
sought God to supplement. Faith is apparent
The petitioner was persistent. (Hos., 12 : 3, 4 ;
St. Luke, 11 : 5-10.) Tho favor besought in his
prayer was a proper oue to ask of God, to wit,
help in timo of emergency. It is alway3 guar
antee of success in prayer when ono seeks aid
in the line of any of God's commands. Hence,
Jacob refers to tho direction given him of God.
at Padan-aram. God had told Jacob to return
to Canaan. (V. 9. Comparo 31:3, 13.) It must
have seemed hazardous to Jacob to go back and
face his brother. It is always safe, howover, to
oboy God. Then, tho promise of God that
Jacob's seed should be numerous as tho grains
of sand on the sea shores could not prove truo
if Esau wore suffered to slay Jacob, his sons,
wives, daughters. Wc sco many facte which
served to stimulate the patriarch to pray.
Abraham was Jacob's grandfather, and Isaac
his father. (V. 9.) About all Jacob had when
ho passed over tho Jordan on way to Padan
aram was his staff, but in tho intervening years
he had been greatly prospered. (Job, 8:7.)
It is clear Jacob camo into actual, physical
struggle with a body representing, incarnating,
Deity. Jacob was iu great need and dared not
permit the departuro of tho Being on whose
proiniso aud help hung his safety and success.
In tho contest Jacob's thigh became disjointed.
Ho never fully recovered, and needed aid of
staff. The event was very impressive It was
important for Jacob's sake, and for tbo good of
tho Church, that tho events of that night
should becomo historic and kept in mind.
Not only was tho night mado memorable to
Jacob by his physical deformity, but also by
tho change of his name. (V. 23; 35:10; 2 Ki.,
17:31.) Tho word Jacob means a supplanter,
deceiver. It was woll applied to him as being
a shrewd, crafty person. This feature is marked
in him. But having shown such faith in God,
such determination to securo divine favor and
help, such distrust iu his own powers, such re
fusal to be denied, it was fitting his namo moro
correspond with his new clraractor. So ho is
named Israol, which word means a Princo of
God, ouo having power with God. (II03., 12: 3,
4.) His prayer was answered, no wa3 assured
help for tho coining arrival of Esau.
Jacob had power with God, but that was not
cured the blessing for which you plead. Wres
tle in praypr. Ono can havo religious fervor
in such excess of bodily-strength tho spirit
can so prevail over tho material that, by hi3
devotions ho may actually tiro the physical..
This might be warranted in such a crisis as
Jacob's. Never want when supply can be
gained by prayer.
THE DEPENDENT BILL.
A Splendid Defense or This 3Iea.Huro of Justice.
Several Mugwump papers, notably the New
York Etening Post, have made a series of savago
attacks upon the measure known as tho " De
pendent Pension Bill," which has passed both
branches of Congress and is now in the hands
of the President. It ia a fact certainly well
known to all thoso who wore in tho service
during tho late war that many men who wero
not disabled in the lino of duty returned to
their homes with tho germs of disease rooted
in their systems. Take, for instance, a cam
paign like that which ended in the surrender
of Lee at Appomattox a campaign which em
braced 12 day3 of the severest effort, nnd of
constant exposure, without food, days in which
there wero no hours of rest, and during sev
eral of which men wero wot to the skin, sleep
ing, when they had opportunity, on tho damp
ground, in wet clothing, and often without a
covering, in the chill March and early April
air 13 it not probable that thousands of men
had their constitutions so weakened by this
exposure and privation that, while thoy went
out of tho army sir weeks later apparently
sound men, tho seeds of insidious disease were
sown in the system, which appeared soon after
in the form of rheumatism and the kindred
ailment3 which always show themselves in
bodies in which the mainspring of action and
vigor ha3 been weakened by being overstrung?
And yet these mon, who aro as much invalids
by tho service as if they had been wounded,
cannot get pensions under tho existing laws.
Many of tho men in tho service at the close of
the war were over 40 years of age and not a fow
over 45. These men aro now nearing 65 30
old that if they escaped sorious injury thoy aro
unablo to earn their bread by daily toil. Shall
such men, who havo faithfully served their
country, and who are now theohject3 of public
and privato charity through no misconduct on
their part, be sent to poorhouses with tho con
sent of a rich Nation of 60,000,000 of people,
which to-day would not be a Nation but for the
efforts, tho privation3 and tho sacrifices of theso
men and thoir comrades? Any man who was
in tho army and now has any oxtended ac
quaintance with thoso who wero In tho same
organization can recall a number of men who
were good soldiers, but who are now poverty-
stricken becauso they aro unablo to labor a3
other men are by reason of prematura infirmi
ties, duo to hardships while in the service.
Massachusetts, remembering the pledges of
tho great-hearted Andrew, has cared
for theso broken-down men or tho
widows of those who have died without pen
sion, paying annually out of tho treasury of
tho Commonwealth nearly $375,000 for their
assistance. The Grand Army of tho Republic
has ascertaiued that 7,000 ex-soldi ers aro in the
poorhou3cs of the country, and 33 many moro
aro depending upon private charity. Tho best
and most influential men in that organization
beliovo that this ought not to be; and tho Na
tional Encampment, at tho head of which is
Gen. Lncius Fairchild, a man who is respected
throughout tho country for hi3 high character
and patriotism, has mado a strenuous effort to
securo tho pas3ago of tho bill which 13 now in
the hands of the President. Thoy are neither
greedy claim agent3 nor self-seekers, but the
intelligent representatives ot an organization
to whose roll-call 300,000 ex-soldiers respond.
In tho name of that notable and historic rem
nant, thoy ask that deserving cx-soldicra bo
relieved from the ignominy of pauperism. To
thi3 demand a class of newspapers declare that
these men would open the door to great fraud3,
and dilate upon a story of soldiers of tho Eevo
lution who, under a similar law, put their
property out of thoir hands in order to avail,
themselves of a small stipend of $S0 or $90 a
year, and that many who wero not soldiers got
tho pension. Fortunately, the records of tho
soldieraof the late war aro full, so that no such
imposition can bo practiced now, if it ovor was.
Moreover, tho 10,000 Grand Array Posts scat
tered throughout the country will zealously
guard against the pensioning of unworthy per
sons under the pending bill.
Tho extreme bitterness with which some of
the papers havo attacked this measure aud its
supporters i3 astouyhing. The New York Post,
for instance, alludes to them and those who will
seek its benefits as Hessians and plunderers.
Fortunately tho American peoplo aro not af
flicted with Anglomania and remember with
gratitude the soldiers of the lato war. Congress
has made haste to vote liberal, not to say lavish,
pensions to tho widows of high officers who
were not in special need and ha3 received the
cordial approval of the country why should it
neglect the actually needy in tho rank and file?
Much ha3 been said about the cost of the De
pendent Bill. The outside estimates do not put
the annual cost at over four or five millions and
the total expense at not over forty millions at
