Farmer Brown's Boy, hating exam

and the nest in which he had found
them In the middle of a mound of rot
ted leaves, began to think that he
should repair the mischief he had done.
But this he couldn't very well do. He

Mrs. Starnose saw' to it that the ba
bies were comfortable; then she hurried
along that tunnel out of the mound
down into the ground. It wasn't a
straight tunnel; there had been big roots
and rocks in the way. The tunnel
twisted and turned over or under the
roots and around the rocks. Finally
Mrs. Starnose stopped. She thought a
few minutes. Then she began to dig a
branch tunnel. My. how she did work!
.Once in a while she stopped and went
back to see that the babies were quite
all right. Then she returned to her
work again. Her tunnel was so deep in

he wasn’t very proud of it. He hoped
that Mrs. Starnose would clear the tun
nel out and make it all right again.
Now, Mrs. Starnose had been suffer
ing as only a mother can suffer w'ho
fears that something dreadful is hap
pening to her children. She hadn't
been far away. In fact, she had been
only a little way down the tunnel that
led from the mound of leaves into the
ground. As soon as she knew’ by the
sound of his footsteps that Farmer
Brown's Boy had gone away, Mrs. Star
nose started back for her babies. She
found the tunnel leading to that snug
little home quite ruined. How she did
dig! She couldn't dig fast enough.
•Oh, dear!” she kept saying to herself.
"Oh, depr! What shall I do if anything
has happened to those babies? I am
afraid something has happened. I am
afraid something dreadful has hap
It didn't take her very long, for the
digging was easy. Perhaps you can
guess how anxiously she entered that
precious nest. Such a relief it w r as
when she found all of the babies there
and quite unharmed. She felt them all
over with those funny little fingers on
the end of her nose. Yes, sir. she felt
them all over. One of them had been
picked up by Farmer Brown s Boy. She
got the man smell and she didn't like
it. So she felt this one all over more
carefully than she did the others. De
spite the man smell, the baby seemed to
be all right. She nursed them and then
she had a very important matter to de
cide. What should she do?
Should she keep them in that nice
home in the leaf pile? Or should she
find a new home for them somewhere?
It was that man smell that she could
still get on one of the babies —the smell
of Farmer Brown’s Boy—that decided

self. “No. sir. 1 cah’t stay here. I would
never have a minute of peace. I would
always be expecting that terrible crea
ture to return. Every time I went out
to get something to eat I would be wor
ried almost to death, fearing that some
thing would happen to the babies while

on the surface. Above ground there was
nothing at all to show that there was a
tunnel beneath. By and by she came to
some roots. They were big, old roots—
dead roots. Then Mrs. Starnose began
to dig up.
Presently she had a nice little room.
It was under an old dead stump. Yes,
sir, that’s where it was! As soon as she
had her little bed room big enough, she
hurried out and brought in material for
a nest, and when this suited her she
went afteT those babies and moved them
all into their new home.

June 12, 1864 —With 250 wounded
Union soldiers, nearly all serious cases,
the steamer John Brooks arrived here
today from the White House, Va., near
the scene of recent fighting between
the armies of Gen. Grant and Gen.
Lee. Seven men died on the trip up
I the river.
Lieut. Col. C. H. Corning of the 14th
I New York Artillery, who is wounded.
1 and Lieut. Col. W. C. Banta of the 7th
Indiana Infantry, who is ill. are among
the soldier patients who arrived here on
the steamer.
This party of wounded, the physicians
on board declare, required their con
stant attention and that of the Army
nurses on the steamer. Assistant
Surgeon Woodbury and his assistants
and Drs. Gallagher and Ure were kept
busy every minute of the trip chang
ing dressings and otherwise caring for
the w'ounded and ill soldiers.
Secretary of War Stanton today re
ceived a dispatch from Gen. Hunter,
dated 6 am., June 8. at Staunton, Va.,
reporting that the Union troops in that
section had met the Confederates at
Piedmont, killing Gen. William E. Jones,
their commanding officer, and “totally
routing them after a battle of 10 hours’
A dispatch from Gen. Grant’s head
quarters, dated 4 o’clock this afternoon,
says the Confederate Cavalry yesterday
made a dash into Gen. Wilson's Union
lines near Tenny House. This morning
Wilson sent out a body of troops to
locate the Confederates. They came
upon Fields Confederate Division of
Infantry about one mile west of Beth
saida Church and immediately retired,
having “accomplished the purpose of
; the reconnoissance.”
The Union troops in this latter move
ment brought back four or five prison
ers. They had 16 Union soldiers killed
and wounded, and are believed to have
killed and wounded a number of Con
federates in the skirmishing that took

“Measuring the Home."
One mother says:
One rainy day I gave our children a
yard stick, tape measure and foot rule
and allowed them to measure every
thing about the rooms, putting down
the measurements on paper in a neat,
orderly fashion. This provided an en
joyable pastime and a very instructive
one. While the game was in progress
I took the tape measure and listed
each child's measurements for head,
neck, length and so forth. This I kept
for later use when I was doing their
