A Telegrapher's Ruse.
Dr. J. Emmet O'Brien contributes a
paper to the September Century entitled
"Telegraphing in Battle," from which
is quoted: On one occasion an operator
started out from Fairfax Station
on a hand car propelled by three con
trabands to attempt to restore the line
so that Pope's operators could communi
cate his whereabouts. Finding the line
cut bevond Pohick Bridge, he spliced
it and got signals from both directions.
While so engaged a party of guerrillas
emerged from the woods t» the track
and surrounded him. Bidding the
negroes stand fast he dictated a swift
message over the line, which was being
repeated back to him and copied as
the Confederate leader leaned over
his shoulder and read the significant
words.- 'Buford has sent back a regiment
of cavalry to meet the one from here
and guard the line. It you are molested
we will hang every citizen on the route.
The instrument ceased ticking as the
operator hrmly replied, '. —.—' (O. K.).
A painful pause ensued. The Con
federate might have suspected a ruse if
at the moment agleam of sabers had not
shown in the direction of Fairfax Court
House. Hastily starting for the woods,
the leader exclaimed. 'Come boys these
yere ain't our niggers' and they disap
peared, while the hand car. as if driven
by forty contraband power, sped rapidly
rearward. Pope's wires were not well
guarded at any time."

—Peoples Press: On Wednesday even
ing H. Blrkett, Esq., was presented with
a beautiful ebony gold headed cane by
his numerous friends in Owatonna. It
was given him as a token of their respect
and esteem. After the presentation the
friends sat down to a good supper after
which several gentlemen made com
plimentary remarks concerning Mr. Bir
kett as one of our most public spirited
citizens, also expressing sorrow because
he expects shortly to move to Austin.
A very pleasant social time was enjoyed
by all present. The following are the
concluding words of Judge Chad wick's
presentation speech: "W. M. The Judg
ment now pronounced on you is that
you take this cane and from love and
fond recollection you be compeled to
keep it the remainder of your days. We
give it not for its intrinsic worth or value
but that the giying may be laid up in the
records and archives of your heart as a
memento of our regard for you. Take
it, may it be long ere you feel the physi
cal need of it, but as often as you lean
upon -it remember that it represents the
feeling and opinion we have long had of
you, as a strong am^ willing support of
this Lodge and of the beautiful principles
of Masonry, and may success attend you
and yours in your new field of labor."

Ayer's Pills. Travelers by land or

derangements of the stomach and bowels
which, if neglected, lead to serious and
often fatal consequences. The most sure
means of correcting these evils is the use
of Ayer's Cathartic Pills. The pru

For eight years I was afflicted with
constipation, which at last became so
bad that the doctors could do no more
for me. Then I began to take Ayer's
Pills, and soon the bowels recovered
their natural and regular action, so that

"I regard Ayer's Pills as one of the
most reliable geueral remedies of our
times. They have been in use in my

remedy for colds and light fevers."—
W. R. Woodson, Fort Worth, Texas.
For several years I have relied more
upon Ayer's Pills than upon anything
else in the medicine chest, to regulate
my bowels and those of the ship's crew.
These Pills are not severe in their ac

have used them with good effect for
the cure of rheumatism, kidney trou
