LLwjfl WjiPiirNOTOX, April 10. ''Bucking for or- Bgib' derly'1 Is a struggle that takes place nt every HPF military post in America every day In the year HHfc, at irunrd mount. It Is a struggle that Inspire) Da the bosoms of tho enlisted men with ambition, B-Bw' enry or rago, according to the contest' out Hvff; come, nnd At tho Isolated posts It gives tho ttScj men something to live (or between pay days. Mvj? There Is not a company, troop or battery In tho WcR United Slates army that has not Its regular fK& complement of regular, persistent onlerly aW-ifc' buckcrs, anil ovcry man In ov cry outfit nurse. .fl& deep In bis soul, tho bopo that ho himself mar at Vive some tlmo reach the onlerlr bucking class. tfljj Bucking for onlerlr Is tho strlfo among the B-oHL men detailed for guard duty to bo chosen order- BgSir-! ly for tho commanding ofllccr by the Adjutant BlBfwg at guanl mount. Out of every guard mounted llrM) n man Is selected by tho Adjutant to report to arBffii tho "beak" or tho "old man" tho commanding EH1& ofllcer of tho post for messenger duty. It re- ftMs? quires no knowlcdgo of army llfo to percelvo lw how comparatively jojous this assignment Is. BBS- '"'o commanding odlccr's orderly does not have KwX to " hump his post" for Ight solid hours out of K'KmT n0 twenty-four during which tho guard tour $ lasts. Ho Is not subjected to Iho misery of BHhi being gruffly owakened at 2 o'clock on a Byf. wet or snowy morning by an unsympn- PH;m'' thctlc corporal of tho guard, to bo escorted Hit to a distant, shadowy, cheerless guard HPz post, there to pack his rifle or carblno for k& two hours and to think Inexpressible things, K?Mr "nl" ',0 ln turn rcllovcel by another equally Hnftf nnfortunato sentry. Tho commanding ofllrer's Ew '" orderly docs not get jolted out of n sound sleep Ht-tii 'n tl,e middle of tho night to grab his gloves, Mffs, belt, nnd gun In order to "turn out for tho oQlcer K'i of tho day "iu front of tho gunrdhouse. Tho BtjiJi' commanding officer's orderly Is never glowered Hi niMiii by tho reproachful Btars or the rcmorse- Hfe, nrousing moon during his guanl tour, unless he BeS) elects to tuko tho night air of his own free will. Wk? It Ishlsprlvilogotopass tho night of his guard Hwjj '""r '" '''" comfortable bunk In his comfortable Hra' quarters. In which respect bo Is a heap better off HS than the ofllcer of tha guard or tho officer of tho BKvS;' day, neither of whom bos much sleep when ho R Is on guard duty. KfS;;. At nearly nil American posts guard mount IWp.VS . takes place at 0 o'clock ln the morning, Iin MJkS'i mcdlntcly after tho guard has been mounted and Hef-v marched off to tho guardhouso, tho fortunate Bjfc man who has been picked out for commanding Hsiff officer's orderly reports at this officer's offlce, IBpJF nnd embarks on his period of heavy sitting Hj& nround. He Is perhaps sent on two or tlireo Kjif errands around tho garrison during tbo day. Bi;-y When the commanding officer takes a walk tho BKy&,N orderly follows him at a distance of about Kvjr twenty feet At about 11 o'clock in tho mom- BM; t 'n,f' "ken a0 bcfore-luncheon office business Bp$ has boon dlsposod of, the commanding ofllcer dls- BmC misses his orderly to the barracks. There tho Hbt&&c onlerlr lolls around on his bunk far an hour or I H so before and after dinner, and at about 2 o'clock $ ho reports nt tho olUce again. By o'clock ho Is BK. again dismissed to the quarters, where he takes IMvSiV off his belt, and his guard tour Is over. Mean- MBjJj tlmolhe men who mounted guard with him are IBlS. soaring out their shoes on their posts, and will HJS contiuuo to do so until their guard is reliov ed, Hf'W' v tho next morning. bK'VC. "rit0 llKhtncss of tho duty Is not tha only ad- Hk vnntago of tho orderly aulgnment. For forty? bES: clgnl liours after the guard to which tho com- BvS muudlng officer's orderly belongs is relloveil, WHaSi tho orderly is absolutely bis own master. Ills Hay-ia- time is his own. Ho docs not hae to stand a A call, not oven morning reveille. Ho can go any- Jj'M. w here ho cbooncs without a pass, as long as ho Wm& turns ip ready for duty at tho end of the two Kfc. da)s. Meantime tho other men of his guard Itji'"; tour undergo their "old guard fatigue," whleh (It-U - means that tho day otter they come oil guard IT'S tno dou their brown canvas fatigue suits at frt;v, fatlguo call ln the early morning and begin a fits- round of suih little chorea as following around UJi the Blop cart, chopping a cord or so of kindling H?'!?' vood, shovelling a few tons of coal, mowing tho MPJT parade ground grass, flushing the post sewers, Jfer- r other tasks of an equally diverting character. KE&. It will thus be seen that it is worth while for a aVsvi ' private soldier In the United States army to buck Wtmig' for commanding officer's orderly. KImv There is no favoritism shown in the Adjutant's bErv daily dishing out of this guard-mount goody. U Tho guard regulation prescribes that tho "man Hffi of the most soldierly bearing " shall be sclcitcd "jH; for commanding officer's orderly. In practice, WM:- however, the regulation has gradually been Hr; ground down to the picking of the "cleanest" KfcJ man for this duty. Now, all soldiers of the bbtv3n ' American army are clean; they hovo to be, willy HtA-M nllly. Ilut tho term "cleanost" InthiBrespoct H4, doesnotrcfor to tho matter of personal clcanll- BiS'!- ness. It bears upon the shine of the soldier's B& accoutrements, the tit of his uniform, his manner wi of handling himself at guard mount, and often. lw' at a close pinch, upon his drilling ability. KSI It Is practically Impossible for a recruit to D tSr' Cain tbo ordorly prize, for tho reason that tho ;;,V recruit has to mount guard in bis Government 3.M . straight uniform and accoutrements. He has no II SJH- inouoy to buy tailor-made uniforms, and ho has II JSij not acquired tho trick of working up a kit, which St it takes a long while to master. So ln compot lr nfffc. lng for orderly at guird mount with tho old I SSIm timers ho would bo nowhere. But tho recruit Il ra' rarely makes an attempt to enter tho orderly It &$ bucking lists. Ho bides his time until he has t OT picked up thobkill. and the money to back up n i,i4 his skill. Tho skill conies ln in working up of a D S kit. A soldier's kit Is his gun and belt. When ho H stj' joins his outfit, thise aro served out to him m by his first sergeant. Both the gun and belt, K with baonot attachment, as thus Issued to the H IM, recruit, gcnerully require a long course of elabo- Slgr rato and sclcntllio working up before they aro f' fit to bo classed nB "orderly kits "or accoutro- 5A Dicntsofa sort to entitle tho wearer to bopo for H Llt tho orderly aasignment of guard mount.

Lined up fur imipcitlun, tlio K& Jiioiubursof tbo guurd undergo tho Ijux-ciid mmS Adjuiuiit's Inspectiou.

In this Orst In si cctlon his oye picks out the men who have, on the very faco of It, mado their appeonuica for the primary purpose of capturing the orderly liertU. These bo goes over carefully After the preliminary inspection and sifts them out. Tho littlo finger of the left-hand glovo of one of them Is not so white as anow, and tbo wearer Is out of the running. There is a particle of dust ln the hank ot another's bayonet. Ue Is a dead one. Thus tho Adjutant assorts tho orderly charac ters and weighs them. Then, amid the quiet, intense excitement of tho men who are looking on, nnd whoso money Is on the men of their out fits, ho walks up to the fnrtunato soldier, says simply, "Commanding officer's orderly," and It Is all over. Tho soldiers whose men have not won go back to the barracks and spend tho morning swearing tbat the AdJutAnt Is partial, especially It tbo Adjutant happens to belong to a different arm of the sort lco from their on n. It often happens, however, that thrco or four men buckingor orderly aro so absolutely lit and i nearly allko In tbelr perfection that tho Ad jutant finds it impossible to pick out tbo orderly from an exterior Inspection. The first thing that an Adjutant usually does under these cir cumstances Is to openono button of tho soldier blouse In order to ascertain If all of them liao on regulation blue shirts. Ho Is pretty likely to find that at least one of tho mon has nothing underneath his blouso but his undershirt, hav ing loft oft tho flannel shirt of bluo because his blouse did not fit well aver It The omission puts hi in out of tho raco. Tho rout of tho men being found all right as re gards the blue shirt, the Adjutant commonly examines tho remaining men to see If they bao on Uo eminent straight socks. Those that aro wearing socks of their own private purchasing nre out of it. The thing might by this tlmo be narrowed down to two men who nreln every Dosslblo respect perfect and equally good for commanding officer's orderly. Thcso two tho Adjutant will drill. Ho will glvo them tho manual of arms all straight and correct for about five minutes, both mon going through tho movements with skill and precision. Then, buddcnly, tho Adjutant will gle a trick com mand a romminil that Is wrong, which In drill ing the soldier Is not supKsed to obey. For in stance, ho will command tho men to roiuoto nn "order arms" which in tho army manual Is incorrect. Almost invariably, how. ' cr, ono of tbo men, for a single second off bis guard, will mako tho slightest move ment toward obejing tho command before bo recollects that It Is wrong. Ho is lot. Tho Adjutants cyo has caught tho slight movement, nnd after his game fight the man who has made It loses, and victory coos with his opponent with the cooler head. When, as occasionally happens, tho selection cannot bo mado ov en by the weeding process of drllllng.tbo Adjutant In desiwratlon produces a eopv of tbo guanl manual, and, with a penknife, tho men cut tho pages for the highest letter, and tho winner gets I ho order lj assignment. V hen u soldier makes an unsuccessful try for onlerly It is fuelil that bo was "run oil" by tho victor. There Is one man In the United States arm) who has been soldiering for nearly fifteen years, and has tho distinction of having never liecn run olT in an onlerly battle, and who uover mounted guard without winning tho selection for orderly. This man is an Irishman, now a corporalin tho Hfth Artlllcr). Ho has been a sergeant many times, but, ilko Mulvancy, his canteen nibbllngsnlnays causexl him tobo"ro Jooced. The cry first tlmo this nun wont on guanl In tho army ho won tbo ordorly prise, and during all the years tbat ho was a private ho never failed to win it. It was sim ply impossible to bent him, so per fectly did ho get himself up. and his success as an orderly character made him famous throughout tho army. Whenever he was trans ferred to u now post all of tho orderly buckeraof the post would Immediately put away their or derly kits nnd retire. They knew they would stand no chauco with tho-nevvbucker in tho post, ior three years tills man was stationed at the Presidio of San Francisco, one of the largest posts ln tho country, and during that period not a slnglo man of tho orderly buckcrs who had been buttling for tho priio among themselves before his arrival, mado nny effort to go up against him, so that ho did not walk bis post onco while stationed In California. "JUIXKT Ji,VK" OF OU10AQO. Peculiarities or tha Aenly Elected Alderman trvm Uathhoiue John's I) art. From the ChUxxgo Tint t-Ue raid. The newly elected Alderman from tho First ward in Chicago Is Michael Kenna, but he is known all over the city as "Hluky Dink." Ho got that name years ago when ho was belling newspapers and shining shoes on tho streets. It will stay with him until he dies, notwithstand ing' his triumph at the polls last Tuesday. Whilo eomo of his admiring constituents may address him as Alderman Konna, and tho etiquette of the Council chamber may forbid familiarity, ho will continuo through llfo as " Hinky Dink," or " Illnk," or " II. Dink," or " Dinky" Kenna, the littlo man from tho First ward. There are several stories as to how he came by his own peculiar name. Probably the most cor rect explanation, and certainly tho one entitled to the roost credence, is furnished by "Hinky Dink" himself. He snj a tho namo was given to him years ago when, with a lot of other news boys and "shiners," ho used to go swimming ln tbo lake at tho foot of Van Buren Btrcot. Ho doesn't remember who tho boy was that named him eo effectively nor wh) ho was thus distin guished. "Most of tho boys I ran with in thoso days had nicknames." snid the First ward sUtusuian, "and mine eamu to mo botoro I realized what they were calling me. Wo wero in awimmlng every warm day. and I can only remember that It was during those days somebody started call ing mo ' Hinky Dink.' I don't know why. One of tho boys was called ' Kcelover' on account of his peculiar stylo of diving. I'voread all kinds of stories about how I was nicknamed, but they Were all wrong." Politics Is u pamo that "Hinky Dink" knows more about than man) men who have higher reputations in that line. Ho has liccnplavlng nt it ov er slncu ho w as a Imj , and thinks there Is no better fun. Ho is a lighter before whom some of tho shrewdest Republicans and Democrats in tho city have gono down. Ho la conceded by friend and foe alike to Iiavoagenlusfororganl ration, and tho fact that ho was elected bv a plurality of over 2,500 proves something, oven in tho Fiistward. Tom McXally aided In giv ing him his start ln politics, something llko twenty 3 ears ago. Ho wasn't old enough to voto when ho becamo prominent in bis ward. Ho lias been a delcguto to every Democratic city convention for ten j ears, and has been a member of tbo Central Commit tee for tbo past live years. Now-ho is an Alder man. W hen Aldcrnnn Kenna takes his Boat In tbo Council chamber for tho Drbt tlmo he will undoubtedly disappoint many of thoso present on that momentous occasion. His reputation as a leader In the rough-jnd-luuiblo polities of his ward has sen eel tocrealosouio tery strange im preasloua among tho citizens of Chicago con cerning bis personal appearance. Tho roal " Hinky Dink" U nothing whatever like the imnglnarj. A more inotfeusivo person ality can acarcelr bo found in Chicago, Iio is as modest and retiring as a country purson. Ho will nt tract the least attention of any member of tho City Council by his appearance. Ho Isn't big enough to half (111 an Aldermau'a chair, and could hide behind tho dusk which tho city has waiting fur him. Ho really stands a chauce of being overlooked by Mavor Harrison somo night.

All eastern Ken tucky has been excited for the lost four week over a scries of w Udcat fights In this town. About n year ago wildcat fighting was inaugu rated at Dowen, a station on the Loxlngton and Eastern road ten miles north of here. A wildcat had been caught there and had whipped a number of dogs, whon Sam Med raw, a half-wittod fellow, offered to fight tbo cat without gloves. At the last moment tho owners of the cat refused to allow Mcdraw to Oght tho animal for fonr tho cat might kill or badly Injure him and they would bo prosecuted. Several of the young mon of Stanton took a deep Interest In these cat fights, and whan they heard about a month ago that John Logan hod caught a wildcat on Bald Knob Mountain, Just back of Stanton, Robert Blackburn, Albert Welsh, Sheriff of Powell county; G.M. Derrlckson, his deputy; Thomas Boone, nnd O. C. Law combined to buy the bruto. Sheriff Welsh nnd Bob Blackburn climbed tho mountain nnd negotiated tho purchase of tho cat for ?3. They brought him here the day McICInley was Inaugurated and put him ln a cago of two-lnchoiksl.it?. Tho first light took place on Saturday, March 0. Tho cago Is within a stono's throw ot the new Powell county Court House, and about thirty persons assembled to sco tho fight. Logan Falkner began tbo fighting by putting his half shephenl dog into tho cage. Tho cat snarled at him a few times nnd jumped on the dog's head, cutting tho scalp In n doren places with his sharp claws. The dog ran toward tho door and yelled lustily. Ho refusal to attack tbo cat and ho was let out, Charley Pcttlt, who saw how easily Falkner's dog was whipped, declared that his big hound, which hasnn cnvlible reputation ns n coon hunter, could whip tho cat. Sheriff Welsh, who was master of ceremonies, told him to bring on his coon don. When placed In tbo cage, tho hound attacked tho cat, but the cat gathered himself for n powerful spring nnd landed tin tho hound's head with all four feet. His powerful 1 laws mido ribbons of tho dog's scalp, and, yelping in agony, the hound gavo up tho light and rushed tow anl tho door. The syndicate let thocat rest on Sunday, but nn Mnndav P. 71. Hanlwlck Inolsted that Ms lnrgo hound could whip anv cat that wore hnlr.

Thoratscemed torenlizetbatthero was no more fight in the dog, nnd walked up ix-ldo the (lco and looked st him In a pltylntrmnnnor. The next day a cur helona-lnc to II. Scholl was nut Intothxcaire.

Tlio hound tried to rcaihhlm with his toeth, but the cnt was too ogllo. nnd the do? finally gave up the fiVht nnd wan let out. I.Ike his pred ecessor, ho tueked his tnll between his less and ran home, not heeding tho call of bis master. Thonext fight occurred nn the 12th, when C. B.

John Ttstton said he would bet his shephenl would fight tho cat. and it was not long before ho whs on tho ground. As soon ns tbo dog was put In tho cage ho put his piws over his eyes and be gan howllnir. Then ho ran Into a comer, and kieping his face covered with his pawi, con tinued to howl. Tho cnt growled ferociously, but as tho dog showed bo much rowanlle ho did not nttnik him. and Hilton look him out. As did tho other whipped doe, this ono made a direct lino forborne, two mllesnwny.and when George Combs trle-d to stop him ho ran between his legs and knocked him down. ITp to this time the owners of the cat had taken up collections from tho spectators it cceh fight to defray the cojt of tho cat and tho cacc, but as the crowds wore to Inrgonnd tho collections so small, thev determined to ndver tleo n bli; fight. Accordingly It waa given out that Charley Illcc's mongrel bulldog, which hnd mnde 11 record of four coons In ono nlcht after swimming Hed Illver with one of the coons, and his half brnthor, belonging to Tom Omilny, would tight tho B)ndIcato cat on Saturday, March 13. A lnrgo cniwd gathered to see Iho Fport, and tho ndmloslnn feo wis cheerfully paid by more than one hundred persons. There was a great denl of betting on the event, tbo odiis being from two to thr"o to ono on tho cat. Each of the dogs wolghod about eighty pounds, and as tho cat weighs only twenty-seven pounds It looked to nn outsider nslf the cat's backers wore glv lng file odds. Chnrlcy Mice's dog, which ho calls Morgnn, was let Into thn cago first. Tho rot was ovelng him closely, and when tho dog was within four feet of his corner he sprang on his howl, lundlngwlth all four feet, knocking tho dog dow n nnd cutting his head and faco bull). Morgan rushed nt him again nnd tho cut repoitod tho doso, climbing on top of tho cngauftcr bo had cut the dog'a faco Into a jelly. Tlio blood nearly blinded Morgan, but ho mado n Jump for tho cat as ho was hingingtothocage. The cat Jumped down on his hack anil, after cut ting tho dog severely. Jumped buck to tho top of thocnge. Bv this tlmo Morgnn was licglnnlngto tire, but ho kept Uirklngat tbeent and rushing at him nt every opportunity. For flftoon min utes tho bnttlo waB kept ud. but Morgan became bo weak from the loss of blood that Ida owner decided to give up tho fight nnd ho was taken out. His henutiful white coat was covered with blood and for several dnva It wasthouglit that bo would losoonecyo. The cat wns also badly winded and seemed so tired that ItAOwnvn de cided It would bo unfair to tbo bettora 10 allow Conle)'d big dog to attack thn rat after Rice's dog liinl worried him down. Then the specta tors set up u howl, sa) lng they had not received their monoy's worth, and ns tlmo or four tough customers who hud drunk freed) of monnshlno whiskey threatened to do somu shooting the ivndleuto returned tho gnto receipts and do elarcd all beta off.

Tho tlrst bout, between Charley Johnson of rrovidenco and Moso Corlan of tils city, both colored, was exciting. The limit was ten rounds at Hill pounds. Corbln, who is quite clever, avoided several vicious right hand swings and returned with a number of straight jabs In the ttrst round. In tho second nnd third rounds Johnon tried hurricane tac tics, but was so erratic that he fell all over him self. One of Johnson's swings caught Corbin on Iho jaw in tbe third, and Mose went down In a heap. Ho rose as nine seconds wero counted and managed to !t the round out. Corbin was lifter Johnson in the fourth and pummelled him for keeps. A left-hand punch in the stomach doubled Johnson up, and he fell to the boards.

He jabbed and countered stilly and had Costen's face nearly red when the mill ended. McClane knocked Coaten down five times in the lost round and tho referee Inter fere d and gave the light to McClane. The final bout was tho best exhibition ot the night. It was also for ten rounds at 112 pounds. Tbe principals wero Tommy Tully, Now West Side A. C.. and young Hroneld. Ramblers A. C. Sammy Kcll) was ono of Tully s seconds. 1 he boys pegged away for dear life and showed exceptionally good judgment ondj hitting powers.

Sciontiflo Facts of Vital Inter. oat to Everybody. Forty out of every hundred pooplo who d' of disease loso their lives by somo form of throvl or lanr complaint. This frightful sacrifice of precious human life before the middlo of its average duration li reached Is wholly unnecessary and results from Ignoranco, neglect and malpractice. Throat and lung diseases constitute such a small part of the whole sickness that they could not possibly cause Forty Per Cnt. of the grorn mortality wero they rightly understood by gen eral physicians. It is because their usual treatmont Is not gov erned by those principles which have bio in v axioms of medical science ln tho successful trc j-. meat of Inflamed and ulcerated organs ln other parts of the body. It 1 because all their early and most curab'.s stages are wholly wasted ln vain attempts to reach tho lungs through tho stomach an I ga cral system. Instead of attacking the dlass la the lungs whilo it is yet mild and could be cu'Jj removed by direct medication. Mtxlieal Science Rc'jutre the Hirer! AppU. cation of EemedtcB to Alt Inflamed, Ctcer afnfand Oerm Infected Part; and ho curt can result without It. All throat and lung complaints tvjln aid have their seat ln the lining membranes of the tubes, air passages and cells of the tbroit Mil lungs. They are purely local diseases and caa only be removed by the Htrect Application of Healing Remedies to the Internal Surfuctt of Ttioee Organ. By inhaling medicine ln a volatile state wi carry them through every air passage, tube anl cell of the breathing organs, and produce hiU j rect healing action on the very seat of all ms cases. If the physician knows what to lnbs and has experience in its ttrength and prefer adaptation to the various stages and fern., of lung disease his patient has a fair chance of cure but without local treatment and lit. knowledge to rightly apply it, no chance what ever. Inhalation It the Only Way Thetc IHt caies Exer Hate Been or Can Potelbly Re Reached, their seat being In tho Internal llclrg of the breathing organs, which can only b pene trated by medicated air, gas or the most drJ cate vapors. If we do not treat them by n.l- ' CAtcd inhalations, we Ho .Vol Treat the X1 eaicd Parte at All, and cannot possibly expect to restore them to health. Inhalation is, therefore, the only comtnoa sense treatment for any form of Bronchial or Pulmonary Disease and the only possible means of bringing specific germicides to act upon aad expel tbe germs of consumption from the lungs. In the light of our present knowledge of uiercv ujsc-sccs, vu uui uruauuus, A11UI4, and Pulmonary Catarrh through the stomach is to conduct them by the most direct rood into consumption. Whoever misleads the people Into believing they con be cured by such treat ment deceives them to their own death and ought to be held criminally answerable. It medicating the general system would cure local diseases, why do physicians all over the world insist on tho necessity of local treatment for the aye, the ear, the womb, and every other organ that can be reached by local remedies I It. Is because they know they coald not cure thes in an) ushcj Ho.:, li tnweaiii, !h!r rctunt treatment of all female disoarcs would be an outrage against modesty and decency. Nothing justifies it but the necessity of applying rem edies directly to all inflamed or ulcerated parts, whether it be the womb, the eye. or the lungs. I often wonder why those doctors who dclada their patients having Bronchitis and other lung complaints into trusting their stomach medica tion and hypodermic nostrums do not try lo cure the itch by putting tulphur ointment into the stomach, or wrestle with sscaradies in thn howehs by hypodermic injections of vermlfcget bulphur and vermifuge are certain remedies for these diseases when locally applied, but woead x-ot cure in any other wa).

PneuuouU and A!hma begin, oau the Failure of all general treatment by tbe stomach to Cure Ihec Im the Ittal Cause of CfHeuiitptton. I have before me the records of over 5,000 cases of lung disease, w hlch baie come nicer my care during the past six ye-iv. Ninety-seven (erceut. of them date the txvtnning uf their ung sickness to attacks of cold or gnppe. which resulted in conge-stnu of the lungs and left -soreness of the chest, or an irritation ot tc ' throat or somo cough which they did not at i c time think serious, but through bad tnatuar- B and neglect it wentun una brought them tue 1 sumption.
