" ' It hasn't the thrill of a caval ry charge, nor the grimncss of a line of bayonets moving slow ly and determinedly on,but there is a neculiar excitement about it that makes old veterans rise in their saddles and cheer. AVe have been fighting at the edjre of the woods. Every cart ridge-box has been emptied once and more, and a fourth of the brigade has melted away in dead and wounded and missing. !Not a cheer is heard in the whole brigade. "We know that we are being driven foot by foot, and that when we break back once more the line will ffo to pieces and the enemy will pour through the gap. Here comes help! Down the crowded highway callops a battery, withdrawn from some other position to save ours.

The shattered old brisrade has a chance to breathe for the first time in three hours as we form a ine of battle behind the guns and lie down. "What grim, cool ellows those cannoneers are I Every man is a perfect machine. Bullets plash dust into their fa ces, but they do not wince. Bul- ets sine over and around them, but thev do not dodsre. There goes one to the earth, shot thro' the head as he sponges his gun. The machinery loses just one beat misses fust one cog m tne wheel and then works away again as before. Every gun is using short-fuse shell. The ground shakes and MICH. tiuuiiu wwnvo uu trembles the roar shuts out all sounds from a battle-line three miles long, and the shells go a shrieking into the swamp to cut trees short off to mow frrcat gaps in the bushes to hunt out and shatter and mangle men un til their corpses cannot be recog nized as human. xou would think a tornado was howling through the forest, followed by billow of fire, and yet men live m m 1 through it ay el press lorward to capture the battery 1 "We can almost hear their shouts as they form lor the rush.

Through the smoke we see a swarm of men. It is not a bat tle line, but a mob of men des perate enough to bathe their bay onets in the flame . of the guns. The guns leap from the ground, almost as thev are depressed on the foe, and shrieks and screams and shouts blend into one awful and steady cry. Twenty men out on the battery are down, and the firinar is interrupted. The foe accepts it as a sign of wa vering and come rusmng on. They are not ten feet away when the guns give them a last shot. That discharge picks lviner men on their leet and throws them into the swamp, a blackened, bloody mass. Up now, as the enemy are a- mong the gunsl There is a si- lence of ten seconds, and then he flash and roar of more than three thousand muskets, and a rush forward with bayonets. For what? Neither on the right, nor left, nor in front of us a living foci There arc corpses around us which have been struck by three, four and even six bullets, and no where on this acre of ground is a wounded man I The wheels ot the guns can not move until the blockade of dead is removed. Men can not pass from caisson to gun without climbing over winrows of dead. Every gun and wheel is smeared with blood every - a. a foot of grass has its horrible stain. Historians write of the elory of war. Burial parties saw mur der where historians saw glory. Fanning Under the Sea. The fact is not generally known that within three hours' ride of Boston a large and profi table business has been carried on since 1848 along the seashore, and which is nothing more or less than "farming under the " Everywhere upon the coasts of eastern New England A may be found, ten feet below the water mark, the lichen known ' .1 .T lf) t ' as carrageen tne "irisn iuoss of commerce. It may be torn from the sunken rocks any where, and vet the little seaport of Sci- tuate is almost the only place in the country where it is gathered and cured. This villace is the great center of the moss busi ness m the country, and the en tire Union draws its supplies from these beaches. Long rakes are used in tilling this marine farm, and it does not take long to fill the many dfles that await the lichen, torn from its salty, rock bed. The husbands and fathers gather the moss from the . ' ii i sea, and the wives and daugnt ers prepare it for the market. Soak it in water and it will melt away to a jelly. Boil it in milk and a delicious white and creamy blancmange is the result. The annual product is from ten to fifteen thousand barrels, and it brings $50,000 into the town, fu r. which sum is shared by one hun dred and fiftv families.

A few weeks aero a respecta ble old peasant farmer in Rou melia. smitten by the charms of a young gypsy girl belonging to a tribe that had squatted in the neighborhood of his farm, induc ed the maiden to listen to his - - -,,, txJ addresses, and finally obtained her consent to become his wife.

"George Eliot married again?" Xo, not again; married at last. An exchange says: "The best nl.iva have the. most villillUS ill them." Then why doesn't some body dramatize the Kepublican party? The burglar alann is a great invention. It always warns the! burglar in season for him to get out of the way before anybody can shoot. "He was in the Legislature one year, I believe; but I wouldn't say anything about that. Otherwise his life was free from blot." Johnny lost his knife. After searching through his one pock et without success, he exclaimed : "Oh, dear! I wish I had another pocket; it might be in that." ""What is Needed in the Nur sery?" is the title of a long arti cle at hand, but which we have not room to print. The gist of it is that what is needed in the nursery is more mother and less nurse. "Don't you wish you was a bir man?" said one little urchin o another. "K'rect I do. I m iust dyin' to be big enuffto git shaved an' have one ot 'era bar bers powder me all over and squirt cologne juice at me," was he reply. AVhv is it that when one man calls another a liar and scoundrel he insulted man almost invaria bly asks, ""What do you mean, sir?" It would seem that such alienage would not require a map and diagram to bkiku it clear. Thief before the severe judge: iVhat a disgrace!

An Indiana cirl sat waiting at the window to go with her lover to an ice cream parlor, when a bolt of lightning killed her in an instant.

A correspondent of the Cau- onsburg Herald said recently in the course ot an article describ ing a small stream in Colorado: "An artistic little bride spans the creek just below our moun tain home." Perhaps the intel ligent compositor had just got married, and was thinking moro of brides than br.dgcs.

VOL, XXVII NO. ia Conducted by , THE GOOD TEMfliRS OF EULDEItKY. PROHIBITION" IX MAIXE. BT GOV. Dl 10 LET. 3. Prohibition has stopped effectually the manufacture of distilled and fermented liquors in Maine. In 183G, when -our population was less than two thirds of what it is to-day, there were thirteen distilleries in tnis State, which manufactured over two callons of rum to each in habitant, nearly all of which was consumed in this State. To-day there is not a single dis tillery or brewery in Maine. 4th. Prohibition has well nigh stopped the traffic in in toxicating liquors in the rural dis tricts of Maine. Forty-five years ago all the country stores sold intoxicating liquors as freely as molasses or calico. For exam ple, the town of Durham, with less than 1,500 inhabitants, had in 1832, seven licensed grog shops. To-day there is not a drop of liquor sold in town. Keadfield had in lodli, seven o- nen bars, at which were sold J,- 300 gallons of spirits annually. .Now none is sold to oe usca as a beverage. Minto (then in ducing Auburn) with a popu lation of 2,903 in 1S33, had thirteen grogshops. Nowthcse towns, with a population of.10,- 000, have not a single place where liquor is known to be sold as a beverage. 5th. Fifty years ago, even in our rural districts, nearly ev ery male drank liquor. Liquors were kept in most ot the houses to treat callers. Nobody thought of having company or a raising without having a supply ot ar dent spirits. At-musters and other public gatherings, drunk enness and drunken affrays were common. Now three-fourths of the males in the rural districts are total abstincnts, and the practice of keeping liquor in the house to treat callers has practically ceased. . It would be an unpardonable offense to furnish spirits to a public meet ing. At large public gatherings, cases of intoxication are sur prisingly few, and drunken al tercations rare. This improve ment is strikingly shown by statistics. In 1833, Secretary Pond, ot the Maine Temperance Association, reported that in the town of Alfred, there were io men and 3 women, accustomed to get beastly drunk; in Ken- uebunk. 90 notorious drunk- ards; in Topsham, population 1.5GMr. -10 drunkards; in New Gloucester, 40; Farmington,80; Wayne, oU. liecent reports from these towns show that the present number of notorious drunkards in these and other towns is one-eighth, and many towns 6ay notone-icimioi wnai it was forty years ago. Tho re port also shows a marked im provement in the condition of the people. 0. In the cities and large vil- lages,representing less than one fourth of Maine, the improve ment is less marked than in the rural districts, although unde niably real, even there. There arc three reasons for this less marked improvementthe great er facilities that vice has to hide itself in a crowded population the concentration there ot a tor eign population which has come into this State within the last thirtv years find the resort to the city of tho drinking men still left the in rural regions, for supplies ot liquor. It the cities i had simply held their own un der these circumstances,it would be a great gain. ' But they have done more than this. As a rule there are no open dramshops c ven here. Occasionally, through the failure to elect both city of ficials and county sheriff friend ly to prohibition, th law will be neglected, and open dram shops will appear here and there. This is the case at the present time in two or three cities. I3t:t generally speaking even in the cities, intoxicating liquors are to bo found only by those who know the signs and pass-words of the liquor traternity ana then mainly in cases kept by foreigners. The open uram rirm temnts no one. 'In the CltlCS 01 l-iCWlsiuu uuu iiuuuni, tvith a nouulation of 30,000, there is uot a single open dram- cVinn. nnd no hotel has even a U t aV I - J secret bar. In the larger cities there, nru many cases of drunk enncss.but three-fourths of them arc ol foreigners, who resort to the most desperate expedients to obtain a supply of honor. As eon firmed inebriates in the rural districts arc obliged to resort to the cities to obtaiu their pota tions, it frequently happens that the police reports of a city like Portland show nearly all the. cases of drunkenness for a pop ulous country. 7th. The charge is frequent ly made that, so far an the cities are concerned, the traffic has been simply driven out of sight. Even if nothing more has been gained, it is something lo ban ish the temptations of the dram shop where only , those seeking them will find them. It is also occasionally alleged that club rooms, more daiigerous than dramshops, have take the place' of the latter. After careful inquiry I cany not learn that club rooms exist outside of two cities in Maine, and even there not so extensive ly as in many cities of similar, size in license States. Setting aside the large foreign popula tion in our cities, I am satisfied that the improvement in tho drinking habits of the remain der is marked. This is especk ally so with the bone and mus- cle of the native population. 8th. It is difficult to obtain' reliable statistics as to the extent to which the 6urreptitiou3 sale r l: :n .1 . ui iiquurs is sun uarrteu on in Maine. Some of the enemies of prohibition claim that a mill ion and a ouarter dollars' worth of liquors are sold here annual ly. Hut allowing even this,and we have 2 per inhabitant now, against $25 per inhabitant forty ' af years ago, and S1G per inhabit- ant the average of the Union to day. Ibis shows that not moro han one-tenth as much liquor. proportionally, is consumed in Maine as there was forty years ago, and not more than oue eighth a3 much as in the coun try at large to-day. Un this point the revenue col lected by the United States from the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquors in Maine, , in comparison with that collect ed in license States sheds some hghf. Prohibitory Maiae has about the same population as i -"- -w . license iMew Jersey, yet the li quor tax in the former State is A. - " only three cents per inhabitant, while in the latter State it is $2.40, and in the country at large $1.83. In reply to the as sertion that tobacco and opium eating are taking the place of liquor drinking in Maine, I may mention that the tobacco tax paid by Maine, is only 17 cents per inhabitant, while the aver age for the country is 1 per inhabitant, and that opium eat ing is lar less prevalent here than in other eastern States. Important to Bathers. Avoid bathing within two hours after a meal. Avoid bath ing when exhausted by fatigue or from any other cause. Avoid bathing when the body is cool ing after perspiration; but bathe when the body is warm, provid ed no time is lost getting into the water. Avoid cooling the body by sitting or standing nak ed on the shore or in boats after haying been in the water. Avoid remaining too long in the water, leave the water immediately if there is the slightest feeling of chilliness. Avoid bathing alto gether in the open air, it" after having been a short time in the water, there is a sense of chilli ness with numbness of the hands and feet. The vigorous and strong may bathe early in the morning on an empty stomach. 'Hie young, and those that are weak had better bathe three hours after a meal; the best time for such is from two to three hours after breakfast. Those who are subject to attacks of giddiness and faintness, .aiid those who suffer from palpita tion and other sense of discom fort at the heart, should not bathe without first consulting their medical adviser. "Mean People in This Town." One of those rough-clad, big hearted miners who come into Santa Fe occasionally to lay in a supply of grub, stepped into the 1 ost-oJlice yesterday after noon, and seeing in the window three letters held for postage. licked one up, and, looking at the address, said in a tone of great astonishment: "Why, thin letter is for a ludy in Denverl" a. omit liiu blVI k UUU b you sec it hasn't any postage paid? In a tone of utter con tempt frr the man who would not forward a letter to a woman, paid or unpaid, the miner said: 4fitra rrw c om r c- n m na H TV was done; he carefully nut stamps on all letters in the win dow, putting two on that of the feminine gender to make sure that it would go all right, and stalked out of the office with tho concluding remark hurled at tho head of the astonished Pin Pinito: "Strikes me there's woniu d d mean people in this tow.;!"
