They bad brought him home one
day. that loyal and stout hearted pa
triot. Jacob Van Brunt, with bis vision
gone forever. A Hessian's bullet bad
blinded blm, and a comrade walked
band In hand with him and warned
him of obstructions In the road.
One night months later, as the blind
man slept, there was a gentle tapping
at his window, and as he opened the
sash and asked who was there a pa
triot sergeant replied:
"Hist. Jacob. I have been with oxen
and wagon for muskets, powder and
lead. I have had a long pull of it. and
the oxen can go no farther, aud there
Is a Hessian picket on the road to the
6outh. We must hide the munitions
and come for them again."
Ten minutes later the blind drummer
and his three daughters were assisting
the soldiers to unload the wagon and
hide Its contents in the dark and emp
ty cellar of the barn. In all haste and
yet with due caution the work was
speedily finished and the vehicle driven
back over the road, and by and by

Aud when the muskets had been oil
ed and the lead cast into bullets which
gleamed bright as silver there was a
drill on the bare floor of the old barn.
With drum at his side, but the sticks
beating softly, and with Uuth. Mary
and Esther In line before him, the blind
man whisperingly commanded:
"Afention, company! Right face!
Left face! Order arms! Shoulder
arms! Ready aim recover! R-r-r-r!
And there came a November day
when the snowflakes fluttered down
now and then, and the skies were dark
with winter's warning, and the gale
whipped the dying leaves off the apple
and pear trees and tossed their branch
) es about in wild disorder. The blind
. drummer was nodding in sleep In his
j chair, and his daughters were in the
field searching for potato hills which
might have escaped the raiders. Of a
sudden the man roused up and peered
into vacancy with his sightless eyes
and listened with beating heart.
The daughters found him standing
?rect, with drum at his side and sticks
in his hand, as they came running in.
",Aye, they are coming, the enemy."

to speak. "They have heard of the

you can carry, and you. Esther. bad me
to the lane and stone wall. Forward

"Attention, company!" cried the drum

"Load each and every musket. Let

you fire. Tell me. Esther, what do they
"They bar halted, father, and ap

Steady, girls steady! When they are
even with the wild cherry tree, fire at
them to kilL Tell me. Esther, tell me"
Bang! bang! bang! roared the three
muskets, and with pulses jumping the
blind man grasped his sticks and made
the drum rattle till the half doxen
horses down in the road reared up and
plunged and whinnied at the sounds.
Fresh muskets! Fire again! Tell
me. Esther, tell me If any of them are

Take away sound refreshing sleep and you rob as
tute of its most necessary requirements- r eeding and
building up time; that's why so many people find
their standard of strength waning when they cannot
sleep well. One symptom after another creeps in and
serious ailments tollow; that is what makes so many
feel and look older than thev are. The perfecting of
Dr. A. W. Chase's Nerve Pills is a revelation to this
kind. Mrs J. Cully of icjj east Mam street. Rich
mond. Ind says: ''for a long time 1 have been a
sufferer from severe nervousness that I could not
sleep at night. I got a box of lr. A.W Chase's Nerve
Pills at A O Luken ii Co 's drug tore, and after
taking part of a box 1 found my nerves steadied, and
as a result I slept better th n 1 l ad for months. I
consider these pills a splendid medicine for anyone
anected with nervousness and its attending ills."

"Thtre is a lot that is huniaa about
these little anis." writes Harvey Sutii
erlaiid in Ainsiee's. "TLey like to play
and cut up. They make believe to fight,
and when they wrestle in fua they roll
all around like schoolboys. They wash
and brush each other and stretch ous
under the process as much as to say.
'My. that feels goodT When they sleet-,
they often lie on their sides and somt
tinies squat down on their abdomen
and the last pair cf legs for all the
world like a man taking a nap. When
they wake up. they gape and stretch
themselves and all but say, IIo. hum.
They always wash themselves aud
comb their hair as soon as they get up.
"TLey are like us ia keeping pets
altoutthe house. Andrecounted5S4 spe
cies of Insects, nearly all of them bee
tles, that are habitually to le found in
ants nests. They must be there with
their consent, for au interloper Is in-j
stantly killed. Some of them are milk
cattle, like the aphides, such as cater- j
pillars that give sirup and the little
blind beetle elaviger, which secretes
honey from a tnft at the base of its
rlngs. If one of these clavigers Is put
Into the nest of strange ants they fall
upon it and slaughter It at once. Some
kinds of wood lice are kept as scaven
gers, and the silverfish or brlstletail
and the larva of the elater leetle are
handy to have arornd to do the heavy
digging under tle supervision of the
workers. Many of these domesticated
animals are unable to feed themselves.
Lesjes saw some ants eating sugar. A
lomecbusa of their nest came up and
nuzzled them until they fed it. After
ward it climbed up on the lump of sug
ar, but did not seem to know how to
get the good of it for Itself. But also
there are pets about which are as use
less as a pug dog, if another such a
thing In the universe can be Imagined.
The little Stenam ma westwoodii pranks
about in the bills of Formica rufa and
Formica pratensis. It runs along with
them, jumps on their backs and takes
a ride, and If for any reason the nest
is removed it goes along.
"Then there is another little ant in
these nests that Is by no means a pet.
It digs its galleries In the partitions so
small that the big ants cannot get in
to kill them. Every once In awhile a
Saleuopsis fugax darts out. snatches
up a baby and runs with it into its
den, where it eats It up. It is as if we
had cannibal dwarfs lurking In the
walls jmd now and then carrying off
one of) the children to be devoidt'd at
horrid banquets behind the plastering.
"Bui if we begin calling hard names
we mKUt.as well keep It up and admit

and Tat they do not have for dinner
todayJhey fatten for tomorrow. It U
6uppojved that in this way they got lntc
the habit of keeping slaves. The young
captive ants came out of their cocoors
and, being naturally Industrious, they
bustled about and gave the babies
their nimmy nimmy when they cried
for It, swept the floor and carried in
the coal until the approving workers
of the captors began to talk to each
other like this: That fusca is a handy
little thing about the house. Seems a
kind of pity to kill her when we've got
so much fresh meat on hand and right
in the busy season, when help is hard
to get. She's so good to the children
too. Let's keep her awhile. What do
you say? And then when it was de
cided to put off butchering day they
went to the fusca and said: 'Fusca.
we've concluded not to kill you for a
spell yet. You can stay around and
do up the work, but mind, if there are
any complaints about you or the chil
dren are neglected or yon give any of
your back talk well, there'll be fresh
meat for supper. Do you understand?
"And the fusca dropped a courtesy
and made answer: 'l'aiss, missy. Tank
yo", missy. Ah'll do de bes' ah kin.'
It is almost needless to say that F.
fusca is a black ant.
"F. sanguineas can do their own
work and often do not keep slaves at
all, but they are little thought of in ant
circles. The real nobility and gentry
are Polyergus rufescens and Polyergus
lucidus. Work? They work? No, in
deed! You don't see them demeaning
themselves building and minding chil
dren, collecting food or even feeding
themselves, if you please. When the
nest is changed, they do not set root to
the ground. They are carried by
slaves. Tbey have always been accus
tomed to having help about the house
But thev can fight. Their mandibles
are fit only to crush other ants heads.
"Ants have cemeteries, and It Is char
acteristic of them that the slaves are
not buried with their masters, but In
another place, over by the back fence
among the ragweeds and burdocks.
