The common soldier loved Jackson. It was not for any jolly comradeship, not for any fascinating magnetism of peisonal charm or heroic enthusiasm. He was a hard taskmaster, exacting and severe. \\ hilst his soldiers struggled painfully towards Romney in the teeth of the winter storm his lips were never opened save fur sharp rebuke or peremptory order." But the men had confidence in him. He had got them out of many a diilicuity and something in his manner told them that he would get them out of any dilli culty. The sight of his old uniform and scrawny sorrel horse stirred all their nerves and made them march and light as they could not have done for another man. And then they knew that though he was harsh, he was just. He expected great things of them, but he would do great things for them. He would slaughter them mercilessly to win a victory: but when it was won, he would give them the glory, under OJod and would cherish the survivors with a parent's tender ness. \\ e do not regard hi,r> as a severe disciplinarian/' writes one of them, "as a politician, as a man seek ing popularity but as a christian, a brave man who appreciates the condi tion of a common soldier, as a fatherly protector, as one who endures all hard ship iQ common with his followers; who never commands ? others to face danger without putting himself in the van- [Gamaliel Bradford, jr., in the Atlantic.

Mrs. Beattie's Clothing Spotted with Dust and Dirt. The Pool of Blood and Hairpin. Richmond, Va., Aug. 5.?Detective Flynn, acting in behalf of the prosecu tion. today secured statnients from a utimber of new witnesses in the Beat tie case which the commonwealth at torneys assert bears out thoii contcu tiou that Mrs. Henry Clay Beattic was murdored on the road, and after a desperate struggle with her assailant. Henry Clay Beattic, jr., who is held by the coroner's jury for his wife's murder, testified that she was killed while fitting beside him in their au tomobile. The prosecution discovered that a pool of blood and a hairpin, believed to have been in.Mrs. Beattie's hair when she was shot, were found some distance from the place where Beattic. declared the murder occurred.

London, Aug. fi.?That Dr. Von Bethman-Hollweg, imperial German chancellor, and Herr Von Kinderlen Waechter, the German foreigner secre tary, will tender their resignation to Em peror William as a result of the agree ment, in principle, between Germany, , :ind France in the Morrocan dispute, is, the belief here today. It is persistently j stated in semi-official circles tbnt the Emperor overruled I be aggie?si\C policy of lb.- chancellor and foreign secretary and ordered them to rrc?*de from tbe?r original demands. Wbile the reported agreement yes terilay between France and (Sermauy, clears the way for an amicable >n ttle ment ultimately, it is declared in Lon don that the situation is still fraught with possibilities of further complica tion and prolonged negotiations before the d? tails can be finally woikedout. So far as can be learned, Germany modified its demands fur a portion of the Franch Congo territory as "com pensation." sufficiently lo make it possible, for France to grant them, without prejudicing other foreign in terests. But the agreement regarding Ger many's economic interests in Morocco, has jet to be considered, it is said, and as this mattei also concerns England, negotiations may still be complicated with definite questions.
