mont, Indlanu Infantrv, wan attache.-! ;
to the Third Brigade of Sherman's >11- j
vision of the Army of Memphis. Karl/ '
on the morning of the "Gth day of that ;
month the brigade broke camp and i
moved In the direction of Holly
Springs, Miss. On the third day 011 j
from Memphis, companion E and (.1, j
under command of Major Berkey, w'err;.
sent out considerably in advance of th,?
command, an a sklrmlfh ,line. . About j
noon, when seventeen miles or so from
Holly Sprlngn, Colonel Fowler, then
commanding th? Ninety-ninth, rode
forward and overtook the two skirmish
companies as they wore climbing to
the top of quite a high hill, and told th:<
men they were then In the enemy's
country, and that they must keep a
sharp lookout for dancer. Deploying
to the right, the men waited Cor a bat:!
tery of artillery to come up, which wan !
placed In position on the hill. Far away j
to the south, on the opposite side ot o
beautiful valley, signs of the foe wore j
to be seen. I
After resting some time, and the en- I
emy not coming out to nice, us, we [
were ordered forward The command j
had moved perhaps three or four j
miles, when a rebel cavalryman was
surprised and captured. That night I
the brigade went Into camp on tl.?* i
banks of a small stream which ran ;
near thlclc woods, somewhat resemb- ;
ling those northwest of Bennselatr. |
Saturday morning we wore told io j
make ourselves as comfortable as poa- j
slble, for the command would not be !
ordered to move that day. It was not j
Jonj? before the boys l^gan to manifest j
a' strong desire to leave camp and for- j
age upon the enemy for "shoulder-strop j
rations"?light bread, butter, honey, j
etc. Quite a number went out, and
tl,nm Tnhn Wnrnor whn .
listed from Rennsalaer. Warner bor- j
rowed a revolver of Captain Ash. and j
went out alone. Over hills, through tho |
woods and across open fields ho went
without thinking of danger.
About three miles from camp "Warmer
came upon a lad who was gathering
hickory nuts, and called to ljim.
The boy looked up and asked; "Ave
you a soldier?"
Warner answered "Yes."
The boy asked: "Ain't you afraid
the Yankees will get you?"
"Are there any about here?"' asked
"Why, yes," replied the boy. ".Mr.
Smith says there are " 000 of 'em just
over the hill, about three miles from
here. They took one of cur men yester- j
day and shot him three t lines.''
Warner answered that he was the
cavalryman the Yankees had captured ;
the day before. "They shot at me thr^r*
ilmes, but did not kill ir e, nor did they
get my horse."
"Oh, no," said the boy, "he ran to Mr.
Warner turned Interiegatlvely to a
house near by, when the boy said:
"Grandmother, Elizabeth and Jane live
"Are any men at home?"
"No, sir; they have all Gone to war."
. Warner and the boy then went to the
house, where the hoy Introduced him to
the old lady and the girls as "the cavalryman
the Yankees took yesterday;
they did not kill him, as we thought."
Grandma fixed her eyes on Warner a
moment, arose from her chair, and, advancing
to him, threw her arms about
his neck, piously exclaiming: "Bless
the Lord! The lost Is found! The dead
Is olive! We thought the cruel Yankees
had killed you! May the Lord
bless you!"
While grandma was talking, an.i
Warner repressing his emotions as well j
as he could, the two young women stood i
by, silent nnd wondering spectators of
the Interesting tableau.
Grandma asked Warner if he was not
hungry, and, of course, received an affirmative
reply. They soon prepared a
goou ainper rnr nim, una, while lie wns I
eating grandma sent the boy down the
road to watch, that the Yankees might
not surprise and recapture him. While
her guest sat at the table grandma
plied him with numberless questions;
but Warner, having conversed with the
rebel prisoner, was prepared to give
satisfactory answers that often
brought smiles to the fees of the 11ctening
women. Meantime. Warner i
was asking questions, too. He lamed |
from the women that quite a large !
number of rebel cavalrymen wore quar- j
tered upon the wealthier people in thft |
neighborhood, and thai seven or eight |
of his Interesting friends were only j
three-quarters of a inij. away, at t.'M
house of a Mr. Vannusj*. At this turn,
two of Air. Vanncss' boys came in, and. j
though but young lads, they evinced
great pleasure when told c?f the stranger's
escape from the dreaded Yankee*. |

"Why, 1 uin one of those Yankees
whom you so dread and despise,"
"What, you a Yankee?"
"Yes, I am a Yankee soldier,"
Thtj. two fright oned! girjs darted?
through the door and sped Into a clump J
of bushes near the house, Warner saw !
ir?^m peering out to ar.c what awltd
deed he was about to commit. The two
boys ran across the J'.elds for homo,
cach with hat in hand, afraid io look
behind them. Warner thought it was
time for him to run, ton, but tarried to
tulk a little more with grandmother, lie
gave back the socks and money, but
kept the, biscuits and honey. He lingered
fully half an hour, and then
started back toward camp.
He had not proceeded more than a
quarter of a mile before the clatter of
horses''feat was heard approaching.
Looking back, he saw six men In gray
uniform, armed, mounted on horsnbaok,
coming rapidly toward him. He leaped
a fijnee and ran for the shelter oi a
wood* thickly set with underbrush.
Three shots were fired at him by his
pursuers, but without effect. Hp sprang
behind a tree as quickly as possible,
and. while one of the horsemen, who
hud dismounted, was climbing t!i<
fence, Warner shot him In the arm
above the elbow, which caused him to
drop hlr. carbine, one of Smith's sellloading
eintcen-shooters. The other
men leaped the fence with thiir horses,
which were spurred to such a speed
that they ran way past the tree behind |
which Warner had taken refuge before |
they could be halted. This Rave him
time to run and pick up the carbine
that the wounded rebel had dropped.
Taking shelter, agdln, ho saw one of the
squad riding toward him upon a splendid
gray charger. He fired, and the
ball struck his assailant In the left
shoulder. Tha man fell from his lior?c,
which got away and ran down to our
picket line, where It was caught and
turned over to Lieutenant Colonel R.
F. Dellart, who afterward rode hlin
many a mile. Warner fired again, his
shot striking another horse in the
neck, and causing him to throw his rider.
This loft only thr?e men on horseback
and unhurt. They turned to look
after thair woundud comrades and
hold a consultation. Th?s gave Warner
an opportunity to plunge deeper Into
the wood and thick underbrush. Bix
shots were fired at him us he tan, but
passed harmlessly above his head. Coming
through the wood on the opposite
side, he saw the men had headed him
off. and were diamounted ready to receive
him as he mergen. Dodging behind
a tree, he got into a position to defend
himself, and called out to them: "I
won't tire if you won't." They consent,
ed to the armistice, and at onc% negotiations
were commenced relative to a
surrenuer. several propositions wer#
made by each party. They demanded
that Warner should lay down his army
and surrender unconditionally. IT^
would not do this, but snld he would
submit to be captured If they would allow
him to keep his arms. They, agreed
to retain bis revolver if he would surrender
the curblnc. To thin Warner
consented, and. throwing the weapon
toward them, said: "Honor bright?"
They answered: "Yes."
They then went together back to the
house where the boy lived who had told
Warner where the Yankees were camped.
and here found ths two wounded
men being cared for by four others. One
: of the wounded men proved to b? a rob
1 el surgeon. It was the one who bud
ridden the fine horse and was shot in
; the shoulder.
j Ah Warner stepped Into the room the
surgeon looked at him with a vicious,
scowl and asked: "Ait you tin? man

! "Well, d?n you, ho\v would you Mice

belt and cocklngit, Warner continued:
"You have tried me one round, now If
any of you want to try another with
me, this Is your time."
"Do all you Yankee# fight this way?"
asked the surgeon,
"Pretty much the same, sir,"
Then a conversation ensued between
the surgeon, who appeared to command
the squad, and Warner, concerning
what they proposed to do with him.
Warner acknowledged himself to he
their prisoner, but there were no conditions
upon which he might be released.
"Doctor," said he, "If you will let'me
fight It out, I will meet your men In
any manner you say?with carbine, revolver,
Unite,' or flat and skull."
The surgeon replied tnnt there was
but ono way, and that was to submit to
be taken to Jackson or Vlcksburg arid
be regularly paroled. .
When this course was decided upon
the surgeon and the other wounded tm*n
were placed In a carriage and escorted
to some place for treatment. Warner
was started out on foot between two
mounted men for Tulahome, a small
village about fourteen miles dlstafr*.
Two other men walked with them a
short distance from the house. When
these were about to return, one of the
mounted suards turned, and addressing
ono of them, said: "Here, uncle you
take this and keep It until I come
back." ut the same time giving Into Uls
hand a. roll of bank bills and a lot of
gold coin; then added: "I captured It
from a Yank."
As they proceeded on their way
Warner observed that his escort were
each armed with a sabre and carbine.
The carbines were carried muzzte
downward, resting In a shoe attached
to the saddle, and tile men rested onhand
on the butt of the stock. He noticed
that the man who was riding1 on
the left hand side of hi in was careless;
and would let his hand drop from his
carbine. Watching: his opportunity.
Warner wrenched the earnlne from Its
sling, cocked it, and bringing it to cover
the guard at his right side, he exclaimed:
"Drop your gun, or I'll put a ball
through you!"
Tho men stared at each other Jn
amazement. Tho prisoner had suddenly
became captor. The man addressed
said: "Don't shoot."
"Then drop your carbine."
He obeyed, and Warner commanded,
"Forward, march."
The men rode about 'en pares ahei'd
in a walk, then, throwing themselves
forward upon the necks of the.'r horses,
they clapped spurs to them und started
off at full speed.
Warner ilred after thtm without effect,
then, turning back, he picked up
the other carbine ami started in the direction
of the camp. Arriving at the
house which the party had left only a
short time before, he overtook the other
two men at the gate.
One of them asked him: "Where are
the cavalrymen?"
"I have killed them both, and now
you hand over that package of money."
The man obeyed without a word, an.I
Warner was allowed to proceed unmo
lested. Reaching a strip of wood, and
being much worn from Ills tramp and
the excitement of the thrilling adventures
he had met, he penetrated to a
retired spot beyond danger of discovery,
lay down upon the dry leaves to
rest, and proceeded to count his treasure.
The package contained J20 gold
pieces and a few bank 1:Ills, and footed
up to the value of 52,002.
It was now late In the afternoon. The
gold and cavbines were a heavy load.
Concealing the carbines under a log,
with the Intention of returning for
them next day, he resumed his march
catnpward. Next morning at 7 o'clock
the brigade was ordered to break camp.
John Warner never had an opportunity
to return for his. carbines, and was
obliged to console himself as best he
might with the possession of his gold.,

The Gentile Woman's Faitli.
" Joshb had a triple motive for this
journey. Th'ore was an ill-advised popular
movement to proclaim him king.
Again. his preaching had attracted the
attention of Herod'Antlpas, John Baptist's
murderer. Finally, Jesus had Irrevocably
broken with the Pharisees,
and they were planning his death. * *
11(?st and refreshment were to be found
In the'locallty Jesus visited. Two of nature's
grandest features were there lit
juxtaposition?the sea and the mountain.
* Ills retirement was only partially
successful, tyowever. for it significantly
said, "He could not he hid." and
a heathen woman was the first to entreat
his offices. This Syrophoenician
is the personification of parental solicitude.
In her pathetic appeal she
makes her daughter's malady her own.
" ? It Is a mistaken interpretation
which affirms that the unusual conduct
of Jesus towards this suppliant was Intended
to test her faith and exhibit her
persistence. It undoubtedly had that
effect, but this was Incidental, not the
main purpose of delay. His saying to
his disciples explains hls?apparently unsympathetic
bearing: "I am not sent
but unto the lost sheep of the house of
Israel." Forty times Jesus declares

minutest directions of his Infinite Sender.
God's-' 'plan" for his Son confined
his ministry to the Hotorcw people. He
was to be a, "minister to the circumcision.".
He ,himself restricted the commission
of the apostles to the Jews until
his resurrection. The purpose wus
to form n h'ea'Hh-stone out of th? He-,
brew nation, on 'which a tire might l>e
kindled, to whoso warmth a/id cheer all
the nations of earth might be invited.
* To this "plan" Jesus faithfully adhered.
lie never crossed the boundary
of the Holy I>and, never worked a miracle
on a Gentile. * * * He who had limlter
his disciples' commission to the Hebrews
could not now beyond them
to work a miracle for this heathen, unless.
to the complete confusion of the
disciples, she could lie shown to he an
exception. Hence, his silence, his discouraging
announcement, "Am not
sent." and Anally 'thoijp trying words in
which he used the common discourteous
epithet which Jews applied to Gentiles.
* The suffering woman endured the
ordeal. She proved herself a daughter
of Abraham by her faith, and as such
worthy of having the thing which she
asked done for her.

The metal waste of machine shops is
utilized by E. Appart, of Jumet, Belglum,
by cleaning from impurities and
then pressing into moulds and raising I
to the welding" temperature by a powerful
electric current. When hot, the
metal is compressed by means of a die.
The roughly shaped product enn 'b<? lln- '
ished in the usual way, and'if the jmn&s |
of different metals are used very decorative
effects are produced. A similar
plan has been proposed for using the
waste mixture of glass powder and
abrasives that collects in English glus3
grinding works. The glass binds the
particles of sand together when scmllusod
at a bright red heat, and a hard,
tough block is formed. Greater attractiveness
may be given by adding powdered
vitreous enamels or metal filings.
Prompt cures in certain forms of disease
are reported by Dr. D. A. Kcssler
from the use of an incandescent lamp
of 1C to 100 candle power. The lamp Is
provided with n parabolic reflector of
proper focus, and connected to a bat
tery or to a street current supply. The
treatment Is applied in one or two sittings
daily, according to the severity of
the pain. The light and heat rays combined
very quickly relieve pain, cause
hemorrhagic effusions (black and blue
marks) to be rapidly absorbed, reduce
the time of treatment of ec*emn and
have no equal in cases of acute rheumatism.
The appearance of perspiration
is a signal to close the sitting. Care is
taken to avoid exposure to cold of the
treated part.
Coal slack has been brought to the
consideration of the Sydney water
board through the conclusions of Prof.
Bostock Hill. This expert has found
coal to be superior to coke or ballast In
purifying sewage, as it has at once a
chemical action, and Its purifying power
Is marked from the first day of Its
use, although still better results follow
after two or three months.
Acetylene Is rapidly decomposed Into
Its elements, carbon and hydrogen and
the finely-divided and absolutely pure
carbon liberated Is superior to the best
lamp-black. A French engineer, M.
llabon, therefore suggests the usii of
the unsaleable quality of calcium carbide.
that is always a waste product of
carbide' factories, for acetylene black.
The manufacture consists In forcing the
acetylene from this low-grade carbide
into an explosion vessel filled with hydrogen,
until a pressure of about seventy-live
pounds Isobtn'ncd, and then exploding
the mixture by raising a platinum
wire within the vessel to a white
heat. The uressure reached durlnir the
explosion Is prevented by the dilution |
with hydrogen from exceeding 3.0
pounds per square foot. Each cubic I
foot of acetylene yields one ounce of j
acctylene black, and one cubic foot of
pure hydrogen, and the latter may find
ready sale.
Ice is sometimes formed in India,
when the air is at 15 or twenty degree:;
above freezing, by exposing water at
night In earthenware pans, resting on
rice straw, In little hollows in the
ground. An ice industry depending on
the same principle? has been discovered
,by O. 31. Howard, at an elevation of
S.000 or 9,000 feet, in a valley of Oaxaca,
Mexico. A large number of shallow
wooden troughs are filled with water,
and during winter nights become covered
with a thin sheet?never exceeding
an eighth of an Inch In thickness?of
ice, which is collected and burled in
considerable masses in the earth. In
these pits the iee consolidates, being
then cut when needed and carried to the
towns on mules.
Among some remarkable lunar photographs
made by Messrs. Loewy nnd
Pulseaux, of the University of Paris, Is

of the moon, the direction of

Exploration of the depths of the Black
Sea during the last ten years has
brought to light a unique condition. Sir
John Murray states that the greatest
depth found is; 1,'JOO fathoms, and that
a fresh-water surface current Hows outward
through the Bosphorus and the
Dardanelles into the Mediterranean,
while a salt current Is steadily flowing
inward. The density of the salt water
of this undercurrent prevents vertical
circulation. The greater depths are
consequently quite stagnant, and they
are so impregnated with sulphuretted
hydrogen that no life Is possible beyond
100 fathoms. Water from a depth of
300 fathoms smells just like rotten eggs.
Thus the bottom deposits, unlike those
of the open oceans, are barren of life,
and they show the further extraordinary
difference, unknown elsewhere, of
an nounuu.ni chemical precipitate of
carbonate of lime.

The eruption began with an explosion,
nla.sses of ash-laden steam being ejected.
The electricity resulted from friction
of the coarse ashes in the steam,

were due to the burning of vaporized

Humboldt. The first stone was found
in 1S2'.?, and between 1830 and 1S3S nearly

from one-fourth to three-fourths of a
carat. Small diamonds have been
found ocasionally since, although no
