By the Sea.
Mj bln*-*yad pet with goldan kli Is
sitting on my knee,
And gazes eagerly afar,
Across the bench, beyond the bar,
Where rolls the restless s??.
She jmts her little hand in mine.
And laughs with childish gieo.
To see the foaming billows splash,
As on the shore .they fiercely dash,
And glide back silently.
lint while she laughs so merrily.
My heart is far away;
And. as 1 look upon the shore.
Where loud mid long the brtukera roar.
My siid son 1 seems to say:*
The sea is like u Uuumn lit<*:
It breaks upon the shore
Of time, with a resistless might.
And. when the goal is just in sight.
Dies?to return no more.
And all along the shore of time.
Full many a wreck doth lie:
The pangs of mam a mad carouse.
Of blasted hope* and broken vows,
< >i' happy days gone by.
Vet. while I muse in mournful mood,
And gaze upou the sea.
My blue-eyed pet with golden hair,
Whose heart has never known a eaie.
Whose voice is musio in the nir.
Still sits upon my knee.
)Ier head is resting on my bresist ?
II?*r eyes in slu.nher deep;
The same rough sea whose breakers roar,
And madly, fiercely lash the shore,
lias lulled my child to sleep.

Then* \v:is great commotion in the old
Hackledown farmhouse : not because
court was sitting in the county town
close by. but'because file honorable Jeduthan
Haekledown, the learned judge of
that court, who walked with a goldheaded
cane, and sat in monstrous dignity
all tlie week, had sent word he was coming
to make a visit! He wanted to see it
the haymows smelt as sweet, and the
pumpkin pies tasted as good as they did
when he was a boy on the old place!
" tioodness' alive!" ejaculated Mrs.
Haekledown, "of course they won't! And
if he comes expecting it, he'll be disappointed,
and I shall feel as uncomfortable
#as a hen with a brood of ducks! Of
course, I'm proud to have Uncle .Teduth
come; but think of the things he's seen
since ever he lived on the old fann! Do
send Medad right* out to-kill some pullets,
Mr. Ilackledown, and tell Mink to
carry some good stout wood up into the
best chamber quick! He'll be here liefore
we know it."
Hut there \v;ls no one lucky enough not
to know it long. Every one. old or
young, was sent flying in some direction;
every kettle and baking pan-was brewing
such goodies as only Mrs. Hackledown
knew how to make, and she herself attended
to shaking ui> the mountainous
feather bed in "Uncle Jeduth's room,"
and getting her sheets from the lavenderscented
pile. -"
I believe I do feel like the old hen,"
she said, half laughing, as she sat down
to the tea table at last. " I don't know
whether I'm most proud or most worried;
that's the truth."
"Uncle Jeduthan is a larned man!
They say all the lawydrs fake his advice
on knotty p'nts," saici Mr. Ilackledown,
solemnly rolling his eyes round the table,
and resting them at last on Mink, whose
sleeves were still chippy from the armfuls
of wood he had been carrying up
stairs. " And that isn't all, either.
They say he knows everything, pretty
Mink almost shivered in his shoes.
His friendless life in the New York
streets, before a charitable society picked
him up and sent him to Paradise with
the Ilaekledown?. had given him a horror
of judges. Besides that, this one
seemed equal to -forty of ordinary
measure. So monstrous learned, rich
and grand; where could Mink hide his
diminished tow-white head from his
He did not have long to decide, for
bright and early n?xt morning a twohorse
carriage drove into the back yard,
the driver got down, and with Mr.
Ilackledown's and Mrs. Ilackledown's
flustered assistance, got the carriage-door
open and the judge, ^old-headed cane
and all, landed on flirt horseblock.
' Well, well, well!" Mink heard him
say, as he peeped breathlessly through
the grapevine, and then Mr. and Mrs.
iiacKieuown nroKe in, una tuey an disappeared
iuto tht house.
" I aim goiif in 10 dinner,*1 muttered
Mink to himself. " I've got a doughnut
in my pocket now. and 'twill lie dark by
supper-time !*'
lint Mrs. llackledown \yas too sharpeyed
for that, and Mink was summoned,
and his face scruboed and "shining, as the
last ?li^h went smoking on thetHble.
Mink?" repeated Uncle .ledutlian,
inquiringly, as Mrs. Hackledown went
through the form of an introduction.
Where ilid he get such a name as
" Oh." said Mrs. Hackledown, apologetically,
44 T ought to have said Doniinii
iis. They hadaioolish way of calling
him 'White Rabbit' where he came from,
and I had to lind a name for him &s* best
I might. There, go and -sit down.
Mink." ?
The.juflge's broad red fa^e shone back
again into Mink's with clear good nature,
and then lie squeezed his portly sides into
the great armchair they had placed for
him. and dinner began. But Mink never
knew whether he ate potatoes or ch^ken
ptew, as the judge went on with st<*ies,
reminiscences of old days, and accounts
of wondrous things in the world, until,
for the tirst time in Mrs. Hackledown's
housekeeping life, Mr. Hackledown had
to signal to her that it was time for the
pumpkin pie.
The great nrmsful of wood lay neglected,
for tlie cold had vanished, and the
sofi. haze of Indian summer gathered
round and melted everything and everybody
into a luxurious sense of comfort.
" Can'tl get out to the old back porch ?"
said Uncle Jeduth, when stories and ceremonies
were ended at last. " I should
like to take my after-dinner nap there, as
I used to when I was a boy."
" Stirhiinsaid Mr. Ilackledown. and
Mrs. Ilackledown bustled into the parlor
for the big straw " rock chair," and Uncle
Jeduthan settled comfortably into it,
threw an enormous silk handkerchief
over his face, and silence reigned. Pumpkin
pie had conquered learning, wisdom,
and authority of the law. "Thejudge
grew drowsy, he slept, he snored!
At that instant a stealthy step crept toward
the porch, and two shining eves
blinked at the judge through the vine
leaves at the end of it. They were Mink's
favorite hiding-place on lazy afternoons;
why shouldn't he enjoy it to- day ? The
judge was past seeing and hearing, that
was sure.
44 They say h? knows everything," said
Mink to himself, gazing at the handkerchief
under which the judge's wondrous
brain miwt lie. 44 IIow did he ever fetch
it? Wisht I knowed. Wisht I knowed
how they spell .Jedutli, too!"
Mink went mentally over a column in
his speller. 44truth." 44ruth." "booth;"
it was of no use, hut anyhow, the judge
used to drive the cows to the Hackledowri
pasture once; and look at him today
! Mink had great aspirations, especially
after 44 knowing things," but wonder
got them all in a jog this time.
441)on't care, anyhow," he was just
ready to say" in despair, when uo crept
another stealthy step. Didn't old Tan,
the tortoise-shell, know where to find
Mink, and the game that two could play
at on such afternoons?
44(?uy!" exclaimed Mink, under his
breath, and the game began. One swoop
of Mink's right hand caught a fly. and
his left set Tab on her hind legs. 44*Now!
' Open your mouth and shut your eyes,
ami I'll give you something to make you
wise!' One, two, thret!"
Down came Tab's eyes, open came her
mouth, and in went me ny. it was a
game that never wore out. and the judge
and all perplexing questions were forfotton.
' Flies were getting scarce, but
link had the ninth one just going, when
a stentorian voice called suddenly:
Bless us and save us! The jjklge had
come to life again! With one wild spring
Tab flew away, and with his tow hair
ready to stand on end, Mink crept out oi
the vine to face his honor.
" J)ominicus," said thejudge, giving the
handkerchief a sleepy pull from off his
face, " what's that you're saying?"
Mink tremblingly repeated.
"Well, now, 1 can teach you a game
worth two of that. Listen tome! and
thejudge struggled up in his chair, and
got himself fairly awake. "Open your
outh, and your ears, and your eye6, and
! I'll promise you something to make you '
wise." 1
Mink's mouth and eyes were certainly ' i
open, whatever his ears might be, ana J
the judge went on. " I)o you Know what 13
that means? Well-, now, let me tell you. 1
That's been my rule for life, and that's 11
the reason I'm not living here on the old i
farm, good as it is, and holding the j I
. plow while you drive the steers. It | '
means, whenever you are with anybody ;
, that will answer questions, ask 'em J
about the things they know best. A
lawyer knows some things that a doctor 1
, doesn't: a doctor knows something a ]
, blacksmith doesn't, and a blacksmith s
' i i i i !a.1 r i
Knows a goou ueai unit iiriuu-i ui mnu i j
ever hoard of.Ask 'em! Ask 'cm! When j 1
you don't happen to meet anybody that's ' t
, alive, ask the dead ones. Did you ever i J
hear of Noah Webster?"
Mink shook his bewildered head. j *
' Well, lie's dead, but he's an excellent i *
fellow to know ; he'll answer you forever, j
If you can't afford him life-size, cot a : j
small one and keep him in your poeket." ' !
The judge leaned back and fumbled j
into his own, and Mink gazed, expecting 1
to see a ghost of Noah appear.
Xo! Out came something white, but (
, too new and too solid for a ghost. A
shining, fresh half dollar. * 1
"There, take that to the bookstore and
tell old Hibliothc i to give you a Noah A
that will go into your yocket easy. And
; mind he comes out esisy too. Keep ask- j 1
inghim! Keep asking him! That's the j
i way." _ ; y
' Indian summer melted away and solid j
winter settled into its place, but by the j1
time Medad reported the snow " twelve ,

" Don't see what in natur' has come | t

I thoughtfully after Mink as he disappeared j
'with the mi'k-pail one morning. "He's
I the mastered hand to ask questions, all ^
' of a sudden; there's nobody hut catches ?
| it. What do vou think I heard him ask- i j
) ing the tin peddler this morning? Why, <]
j lie was asking him what they put into ^
I tin besides antimony to make britannia f
of it!"
" Antimony!" exclaimed Mrs. Hackle- c
down, with a glance at her bottle on the t
- helf. "is the boy crazy?" but at that j
instant the new doctor's sleigh whirled j
into the yard. q
The doctor had a call on a road he had t
never investigated, and the snow was
de<*p; could he obtain a pilot? j
" Send Mink," suggested Medad. " I'll j
do the milking, and he^ can find out all
about antimony," and in three minutes j
more the sleigh whirled out of the yard
again, with the tip of Mink's nose just r
visible above the folds of the buffalo e
robe, and a. busvthinkinggoinjon under \
his big cap, with ear-tabs of Mrs. Hack- j
down's own knitting. r

at hist the doctor looked suddenly down 1
at Mink's nose. "All right down there? t
is it pretty cold?1' he asked.
\ es, sir." answered Mink, hesitating- t
ly. "Only"? 1
"Only what?"
" If you would be so kind as to tell me t
what a tourniquet is?" c
"A tourniquet!" ? and the doctor's '
laugh rang out over the snowy hills? i'
" what ever put that into your head* A 1
tourniquet, my boy. is an instrument we
use to stop the flow of blood from %
Vounds, if we're going to cut ofl' a man's *
leg, for instance." *
"The arteries, you know." and the
doctor began to warm up, " the arteries '
carry the blood from the heart down- 1
ward to the extremities; the veins only c
bring it back; so when we don't want a
man to bleed to death, we put on the j1
tourniquet above the wound. It clasps J
round the leg or the arm, and by turn- *
ing a screw, we give it such a grip that
the arteries come to a dead halt, and *
what little veins lose below, nmounts to
nothing. Clear.is daylight, eh?" l'
Mink nodded, and his eyes snapped ?
under the rim of his big cap. 1
" And on a pinch, you can make one -?
yourself," the doctor went on. " If you
meet a wild Indian and he gives you a
stab in your knee that you're afraid is
?oin<* to run you dry, just take your
handkerchief and tie it looselyjust above. .
Then cut *i small round stick from the J
first tree, slip it through the handker- :
chief, give it a few round turns, and vou I
b.ive a tourniouet of vour own. Under

Mink nodded again, and pointed to a
wentherbeaten little hon.se just in siidit. v

there's the house."

44 Jerusalem!" exclaimed Mcdad,44 isn't j
this just the weather to go Maying!" j
44 Oh. isn't it!" echoed an ecstatic voice t
beside him, ami a pair of eyes as blue as j
violets looked up into his. They belong- j
ed to his cousin, Lucy Hackledown. and (
had been almost too much for Medad (
during the three weeks *he had been vis- (
iting the farm.
There was only on'? thii% that saved r
him. Nettie Newman, whose seat had r

thought there Avasn't another such pair s
in the world. But now, blue or brown, 1
brown or blue,-which was it? If he only i
could get them both oft' on a May party 1
together, he was sure he might lincl out. '
and put an end to it. 1
"Mother," l?e said. " can you pet up j
doughnuts and cold chicken enough for a i
lot of us to go Maying to-morrow ?" t
It was all settled; the big two-horse t
wagon was "hitched up" bright and s
early next morning, Tom Newman's l
light buggy following behind, and room i
made miraculously for everybody, Mink s
included, of course. All was ready at >
last, even to Medad's special pride, a r
monstrous holiday* handkerchief, which <
paraded a red-plaided corner out of his 1
breast-pocket, and a new reel of small t
rope that he threw into the wagon at tiie s
last moment. "Girls are always want- >
ing to tie wreaths, or some such non- <
sense. "(Jet up, Dick!" he said, and
they were off. 1

enough, no one felt like going home. ?
" What was to he done!" t
" I^t's niteh quoits,' said Medad. " It's I

and blue corners through his fingers until r

a contemptuous challenge in his tone, t

" Mode," exclaimed Nettie, springing i
forward and laying her hand on his arm,
44 don't let Tom make a fool of you! s
Don't mind him. Nobody in his senses <
would try going down there for anything
less than a case of life and death," ' t
Medad gave her one look; the eyes J
were more irresistible than ever, but lie
never would be dared, lie shook off her f
hand with a laugh, and sprang to the 1
ed^e of the cliff.
It was almost perpendicular, the ravine -1
seeming like a cleft in a solid wall of rock, <
at the bottom of which lay a tiny brook, i
and just width enough for a narrow wagon-track
to squeeze beside it. The wall on 1
each side was a ragged mass of clear rock, 1
with nothing .to break its sixty feet of 1
surface except its own rough spurs projecting
here and there, and the dwarfed i

But over the edge went Mcdad with a
swing, his hands grasping the topmost i
; pine hush, and his feet feeling out for the 5
nearest spur of rock. The blue eyes ]
looked appealingly into the brown, and 1
the brown turned to Tom with an indignant
flash. ]
"Aren't you ashamed, Tom?" and I
Tom stepped to the edge of the bank s
"Come, Mede, that's enough; you'd j
better come back," he said. But Mede's
blood was up; nis feet felt a ridge of
rock under them, and cautiously letting i
go of the bush, he reached down ana i

Consideration of the army appropriation bill
wus resumed. Mr. Tucker submitted an amendment
to repeal section 1,218 of the revised
statutes. This is the section which prohibits
the appointment to the army of any person
who served in any capacity in the military,
i naval or civil service of tht Confederate States.
Mr. Conger raised a point of order against the
1 amendment on the ground that it was new legi
Islation and not germane to the bill. He aiter,
ward withdrew the point of order, but it was
renewed by Mr. Sparks, and sustained by the
chu'r. The consideration of the bill having
been concluded, with tho exception ol section
six, repealing the statutes allowing the military
to preserve the peace at the polls, that section
was read. Mr. Conger rose to a point ol
order that the se|tiou changed existing law
; and did not retrench expenditures. After a
prolonged discussion the House adjourned.
Among the measures ottered in the Senate
1 j were bills by Mr. Grover extending the time
i for the construction and equipment ol the

i that purpose, the Senate adjourned.
Mr. Gordon having appeared for the first time

i bill making an appropriation of ^200,000 for
the construction of a steel vessel, to be used
for the disinfection of vessels nnd cargoes coming
from ports supposed to be inlected with
yellow fever or other contagious diseases. Mr.
Harris offered a substitute to meet the objection
of Senators to the general bill, authorizing the
secretary of the treasury to contruct for the
purchase or construction of a vessel provided
| with refrigerating upparutus for the purpose
named, or arrange with the navy department
for the use of a vessel. If the construction of
a vessel shall be recommended by the national
board of health, the work shall be done under

and then adjournment.
Mr. Sparks introduced the army appropriation
bill, lie explained that it was substantiid1
ly the bill that had passed thelIou.se in the last
1 session of the last Congress, with the provisions
' in regard to tho reorganization of the army
stricken out. It was also substantially the bill
which had been passed by the Senate, with the
provision inserted repealling the two statutes
allowing the use of troops at the polls. It was
' really the bill which had been informally
1 agreed upon in the conlerence committee, excepting
that portion repealing tho statutes in
regard to the use of trooDs at the noils. The,
House then went into committee of the whole.
i Tho bill was read in full. It appropriates
? 25,797,300. It limits the number of enlisted
men to 25,000, including Indian scouts and
hospital stewards. It contains the clause authorizing
railroad companies to do a general
telegraph business. It amends section
2,002 of the revised statutes so as to prohibit the
presence of troops at the place where any general
or special election is held, "unless it be
necessary to repel the armed enemies of the
United States." It also amends section 5,528
in the same sense, making it a penal offense
for any officer in the civil, military or naval
i service to order or nave troops at any pmcc
where a general or special election is held.
After disposing of nearly all the ordinary provisions
ol" the oill and voting down an amendment
to reduce the army to 15,000 men, the
House adjourned.
Debate was continued on the clauso in the
army appropriation bill forbidding the presence
of troons at the polls. Mr. Conger's point of
order uuit?he clauso was now legislation and
not in the interest of retrenchment, was overruled
by the chairman. Mr. Conger appealed
from the decision, but the House sustained the
ruling by a vote of 125 to 107. General Garfleld
then took the floor and presented the
Republican case in a long speech. Messrs,
Stephens and McMahon were the principal
speakers on the Democratic side. Adjourned.
Mr. Atkins reported the legislative appropriation
bill. It appropriates between $15,000,000
and $16,000,000. Under the judicial head
it contains a provision repealing the last clause
of section 800 of the revised statutes, which
applies to the State of Pennsylvania, and sec'
tions 801, 820 and 821 of the revised statutes,
and providing that all jurors, grand and petit,
shall be publicly drawn from a box containing
the names of not less than 300 persons possess
ing the necessary qualifications, which names
I shall have been placed therein by the clerk of i
the court and a commissioner, to be appointed
by the judge, which commissioner shall be a
well-known member of the principal political
party opposing that to which the clerk ahaM I

and 2,020, and all the succeeding sections down \
to and including 2,027, and also section 5,522. c
It also strikes out of section 2,019 the words t
" for the pin-pose of engaging in the work of t

of it as relates to the pay of supervisors of :
elections. It repeals all other sections and *
laws authorizing the appointment ofchict su- a
pervisors of elections and special or deputy A
marshals of elections. The bill was ordered v
printed, and referred to the committee 01 the
whole .... In committee of the whole consid- s
cmtion of the army appropriation bill was re- 1
sumed. Tho discussion of tho clause forbidding ]
tho military at the polk was participated in by jMessrs.
Muldrow, Chalmers and Hurd on the ^
Democratic side, and by Messrs. Jielford, Con- ^
ger and Frye on tlie Republican. Adjourned.
An effort was made by Mr. Sparks to have a
time fixed for closing the debate on the army 2
appropriation bill. Suggestions were made to
have a night Bession, to restrict speeches to '
fifteen minutes each, and to close the debate 1
tho next day. Objections was made to all J
these propositions, Mr. Conger stating that 4
a number of gentlemen on both sides.hatl given j
notice of their desire to speak; also that many j
had prepared speeches, and would not like to s
be restricted to illteen minutes; and also, that j
few members would be present at the night ?
session. On both sides it was declared that
there was no desire to shut off debate; and *
tho speaker gave it as his experience that an
unlimited debate was the shortest debate.
Finally, on motion of Mr. Dunnell, all general ]
debate was ordered closed on the following (
Friday, leaving the flve-minutc debate still l

The Fitz-John Porter Case. <
The oflicial report of the board of in- ]
quiry in the Fitz-John Porter case lias <
been approved by the President and 1
the Secretary of War, and the general "
will now be restored to his old rank and 1
position in the army. The report of the 1
board, which consisted of Generals j
Scholield, Terry and Getty, gives a nar- '
rative of the events which gave rise to j
the charges against General Porter,
omitting unessential details and limiting
themselves to a plain statement of es- (
sential facts established by positive i
pro.of. Concerning the charge or which ]
General Porter was found guilty?not i
having moved his command on the
night of August 27, 18C2, in obedience to
an order from General Pope?the board ,
report that it was a manifest physical
impossibility to march over that road ,
that night: that nothing would have
been gained by the attempt, and that it 1
would have been wiser if General Porter i
had delayed the attempt still longer
than he did; that he exercised
the very ordinary discretion of a
corps commander, and that it was
his plain duty to so exercise it. i
The report closes as follows: "General
Porter was, in effect, condemned for not '
having taken any part in his own ]
battle. Such was the error upon which I
General Porter w:is pronounced guilty I
, of the most shameful crime known
among soldiers. We believe not one
among all the gallant soldiers on that
bloody field was less deserving of such
condemnation than he. The evidence of
bad animus in Porter's case ceases to be
material in view of the evidence of his
soldierly and faithful conduct. But it
is our duty to say that the indiscreet and
unkind terms in which General Porter
expressed his distrust of the capacity of
his superior commander (General Pope)
pntinnt- hn defended, and to that indis
crction was clue in very great measure
the misrepresentation of both his motives
and his conduct and his consequent
condemnation. Having thus given the
reasons for our conclusions, we have the
honor to report, in accordance with the
President's order, that in our opinion
justice requires at his hands such action
as may be necessary to annul and set
aside the findings and sentence of the
court-martial in the o.-ise of Mr\jor-General
Fitz-John Porter and to restore him
to the position of which that sentence
deprived him, such restoration to take
effect from the date of his dismissal from
the service."
The Story of a Young English Officer'*
Tin * ! *? nf Tsnnrlnln.
The following letter from II. SmithDoriiui,
a young English officer, gives a
graphic account of his escape during the
massacre of British troops in South
At about half-past one the Zulus were
seen coming over the hills in thousands. <
They were in most perfect order, and
seemed to be in about twenty rows o 1
skirmishers one behind the other. They
were in a semicircle round our two
flanks and in front of us, and must have
covered several miles of ground. Nobody
knows how many there were of
them, but the general idea is at least ,
20,000. Well, to cut the account short
in half an hour they were right up to the
camp. I was out with the front com- i
panies of the Twenty-fourth, handing
them spare ammunition. Bullets were i
flying all over the place, but I never 1
seemed to notice them. The Zulus near- 1
ly all had firearms of some kind and lots '
of ammunition. Before we knew where
we were they came right into the camp,
assegain<* everybody right and left, j
i'.YPryOOClY Ull'n WHO imu u nurse lumm
to lly. The enemy were going at a kind
of very fast half-walk and hall-run.
On looking round we saw that we were
completely surrounded and the road to
ltorke's Drift was cut off. The place
where they seemed thinnest was where
'we all made for. Everybody went pellmell
over ground covered with huge
bowlders and rocks till we got to a deep
sprint or gully. IIow the horses got
over I have no idea. I was riding a
broken-kneed old crock which did not
belong to me, and which I expected to go 1
on its liead every minute. We had to go
bang through them at the sprint. Lots :
of our men were killed there. I had lots '
of marvelous escapes, and was firing 1
away at them with my revolver as I gal- !
loped aloi}g. TJie ground there down to !
the river was so broken that the Zulus
went as fiist as the horses, and kept killing
all the way. There were very few ;
white men; they were nearly all mount- <
ed natives of ours flying. This lasted !
till we came to a kind of precipice down j
to the river Buffalo. I jumped off and
led my horse down. ]
There was a poor fellow of the mount- ,
cd infantry (ft* private) struck through
the sirm, who said as I passed that if I i
could bind up his arm and stop the 1
bleeding lie would be all right. T accordingly
took my handkerchief anil tied <
up his arm. Just as I had done it,
Major Smith, of the artillery, came down !
by me, wounded, saying: "For God's i
sake get on, man; the Zulus are on the 1
top of us." I had done all I could for J
the wounded man, and so turned to i
jump on my horse. Just as I was doing '
so tlie horse went with a bound to the
bottom of the precipice, being struck
with an sissegai. I gave up all hope, as (
the Zulus were all round mp,finishing off
the wounded, the man I had helped and j
Miijor Smith among the number. However,
with the strong hope that every- i
body clings to that some accident would 1
turn up, I rushed off on foot and plunged ]
into the river, which was little better (
than a roaring torrent. I was being <
carried down the stream at a tremen- J
dous pace, when a loose horse came by i
me, and I got hold of his tail, and he
landed me safely on the ot^er bank; J
but I was too tired to stick to him and c
get on his back. I got up again and <
rushed on, and was several times knock- 1
ed over by our mounted natives, who
would not gdl out of ray way, then up a ?
tremendous hill, with my wet clothes i
and boots luu 01 waier. About
twenty Zulus got over the {
water and followed us up the hill, but, I i
am thankful to say, they had not their *
firearms. Crossing.the river, however,
the Zulus on the opposite side kept firing
at us as we went up the hill, and killed J
several of the natives round me. I was t
the only white man to be seen until I T
came to one who had been kicked by hjs Z
horse and could not mount. I put him J
on his horse and lent him my knife. lie 1
said lie would' catch me a horse. Di- u
rectly he w:is up he went clean away. ?'
A few Zulus followed us lor about three ;
miles across the river, but they had no ;
guns, and I had a revolver, which I kept j
letting them know. Also the mounted j
natives stopped a little and kept firing
at them. They did not come in ciose,
and finally stopped altogether. Well, to
cut it short, I struggled into Helpma- J
kaar, about twenty miles off, at night- *
fall, to iincl a few men who had escaped, I I
about ten or twenty, with others who | I
had been intrenched in a wagonla ager. j ?

A Distinguished Foreigner*
About a year ago .^Messrs. Charles Dl
teiche and brother brought five chimlanzees
to the New York aquarium, of |
riiich only one remains. Recently, an- ^
itlier arrived from Central Africa, and and
here was much curiosity to see how the Pr?i
wo creatures would act at their first ?
oeeting. S1,
When the stranger was put in the *isc
age, "Tommy," the old inhabitant,
ooked at him for a moment with some aii
lttie distrust, tnen ne approacnea nearer, || \
md after a little hesitation threw one
irm over his shoulder in a manner that
vas almost human. th
They looked in each other's eyes with
erious faces, and then, clasping their ratei
ong arms about each other, embraced.
["lien they separated, and " Tommy " ex- mc
ended his hand, which the newcomer
ook and shook. Then "Tommy" offered |
he courtesies of his cage to the new- ||V
:omer, gave him a part of his blanket
md the remains of his dinner. cius
When the new arrival was given his
irst bath, he objected strongly, and oi<i
'ought against soap and water and brush { ft?
inrfcomb like an obstinate child, while 2h.
'Tommy" looked on in apparent glee.
\t ten o'clock at nigrht, the new cnirn- ra
mnzee was wrapped up in his blanket, 11
ileening soundly, and "Tommy," with
lis olanket pulled up over his shoulders,
sat a few feet away, watching him with j'
jreat solicitude. Sj_

A Word to Doubter*.
There is a good old English maxim that p
teaches us to " believe every man honest until we
know him to be a villain." American cus- 1
torn seems to have reversed this law, and ap- fi
pears to make every man a villain until he has I
proved himself an honest man. As with peo- 1'
pie, so with things. Every article placed in ?
our markets can lay claim to popular favor u
upon intrinsic merit and value alone. Con- '?r>
tinued popularity, therefore, is proof positive
of intrinsic excellence. Dr. Pierce's Family
Remedies are far more popular to-day than jpj
ever before. The people have tested them and f]
know them to be genuine remedies for the diseases
they are recommended to cure. The
Golden Medical Discovery and Purgative Pel- Hi
lets are the best alterative, tonic and cathartic J*
remedies that can be used in chronic'diseases be
of the stomach and liver. The world-wide At
popularity ot the Favorite Prescription, ns a
never-failing remedy for female disease*, would i?<
have alone secured to its discoverer the fame
he has so richly won. Dr. Sage's Catarrh ? .
Remedy, of which Dr. Pierce is also proprietor,
is recommended by those who have tested its
virtues as a safe and reliable remedy for catarrh
in its worst forms.

A WOTld-Wlde-Reputation. *
Dr. R. V. Pierce, having acquired a reputation
in the treatment of chronic diseases result- E(
ing in professional business far exceeding his jg
individual ability to conduct, some years ogo
induced Several medical gentlemen to associate
themselves with him, us the laculty of the ?
World's dispensary, the consulting department
of which has since been mefged with the Invalids'
hotel. The organization has now been at
completed and incorporated under statute "i1
enacted by tlio legislature of the State of lNre\v ,irs
York, under the name and style of the "World's xnf
Dispensary Medical Association." f(,r
Wo clip tbe following from the Buffalo j
Express: f
A branch of the " World's Dispensary Medisnl
Association " is to be established in London, ^
Eng., a step which the continually increasing j>oi
European busiuess ot the Dispensary has been
found to wan-ant, and next week Dr. B. T.
Bedortha will sail for the great metropolis
named, to superintend the organization of the
new institution. This gentleman lias been for
some four years associated with Dr. Pierce In
11 position of responsibility, and is well qualified n
for the duty now entrusted to him. Hereto- t
lore the foreign business of the World's Dispensary
has been transacted through the *m
tgency of prominent druggists, but it has as- r
mined such proportions us to require more di- p
rect care. Dr. Bedortha will no doubt success- th>fully
carry out his mission, being a gentleman a I
