Sorter written oy. Prof. John XeLon, of. Lexington. Ivy., ;and published In the (Now- York Sun, may be noted. Prof. Notion s a private in Compai.f C, First .Kentcky Volunteer?, Col. John B. Cas Tleci&n. He is a graduate of the TJnl veesaty of Ylrgriiila, and later assistant iprofcsjr of Greek in the Unh-ersity of Texas. "Writing to his brother. Prof. ' J. Poyntz Xelstm, he says: "Into what absolute Insignificance the Individual lapses when he dons the unl sform f our country! As far as I can analyze it, a soldier must ruiiy realize i that wften he takes the oath he is In no sens' h s own. but another's his coun try's. liom he must serve regardless of anything that -may befall &Im. The Ego of life is buried. Then, as a consequence. 2e arrives at the knowledge that he Js only a part, aflt a thinking part, of a vast machine, about -which there is only one oneern that be properly performs tsh- work aSotted, and that there be a counterpart of this piece to take Its place rsvOieu warn out -or broken. "Fjay 1 had my lirst test of what is known as fatigue duty, consisting of sweeping up the rear of the company i atieet p.cklng up paper, burning trash, i etc. Pour of us were engaged in the i fwork, and. though I da not say it, we did a 'gel job. Of suon Is soldier life. 6torday morning we jjot an awful else, conducted a sham battle. Wo got I up at i o'clock and started shortly after 5. we tneugnt we were only to have a brigade drill, but we were woefully mis taken. We marched, countermarched and then marched some more and same more. At last we went at double quick down a steep slope, wheeled a short dis tance and dropped flat, only for a few minutes, when up -we got and dashed for a gravel pit, where down we went, had a pretty fair rest; started up again, back tip the steep slope, down a gradual de cline, when we formed in a skirmish line our battalion. We knew the other two battelipn were ahead, our regiment forming the extreme left of the brigade and Company C the extremest left. We lay down some more and then we got up In a hurry, and how we double-quicked It! Oh. those old muscles, bones and lungs, and that gun that weighed a ton. and that infernal Snodgrass Hill looming up half a mile ahead, which we all felt "was the objective place for us, or else some place beyond! "Oh we went, then falling flat literally. legs inclined to the left, good firing posi tion; some more dishing". We had got them in. the timber. Drop again; forward, and on we go; a roadway Is reached with a good embankment in front; down on the gravel and hug ft. And then, my lord, wt have juffi reached the most Interesting or damnable part of Snodgrass Hill about 45 degrees inclination and rushed up. I'M be hanged If I didn't think I was gone entirely. I got up to the top some how, stayed with the line, where we drop ped htlil some more. I have heard artis tic culng. but the most marked origi nality wa developed in creating impreca tions on Gen. Grant that I have yet had the fortune to listen to. "But this was not all. "Forward is giv en, and down hill we go and then up. My legs and back felt like a man with inflam matory rheumatism and the victory was won. We soon commenced our ma-ch back, and we imagined we wore on our direct way home. But at one point we saw the old man wheel to the left with his stafl. jump a ditch and start for a hill where were the colors and a man (Gen. Grant) sitting on a cannon. This meant to pass in review, not as we supposed In company formation,, but some as skir mishers and others as supports. We got to camp at 10 o'clock. Right smart exer cise. Five of our men dropped out. Two of them liad no business going. The oth ers were lacking in sand. "Last Ttight after dress -parade we had a very ip-etty regimental drill, after which, to our surprise. we were lined up in a right angle, and Col. Belknap with the band led us In singing "Old Kentucky Hi me. 'Dixie,' "My Country.' etc. You should have heard the boys yell when Col. Belknap called for three cheers for th" old Commonwealth, the -complement 'to which was given toy Major Gray of our battaSon, who shouted 'What's the mat ter with Kentucky?' The answer in words and volume was strictly correct. lAt this stage the men and officers of an Indiana battery Tusmed on the field, and as we matched by in column of fours lth--y herd us to the echo. We forgot all about the morning's trying work, and we came through the battery camp with a swing that would have done your heart STjod. "This was a genuinely bright ray of sunshine in our life and served a splen did purpose. The shades are sometimes very dark, but we have lights, too, and Tvery bright ones. I am In fine spirits, .trjng to do what I can. I on'y ask for physical health to endure till Teal service Is to be met. when I trust this will be supplemented by strength to continue steadfast to the end. The letters are a grat comfort. I constantly think of you, -especially when those muscles, banes, etc.. ache. A tremendous reserve force, (believe me. inexhaustible, heaven grant" Private Nelson is a great grandson of Gov. Thomas Nelson of Revolutionary lame nd one of the signers of the De claration of Independence. He Is a first cousin of Thomas Nelson Page, the au thor. He was one of the first men In 3xlngton to signify his willingness to enlist after war was declared -w-th Spain. The Tax on IJeedx. In regard to deeds on burial lots, the Commissioner of Internal Revenue has rendered his decision that those deeds which give perm'ss'on to erect monuments or to bury on the lot do not require a revenue stamp. He has also given de cisions as follows: That the tax Is to be apportioned to the true value of the prop erty transferred in deeds of conveyance; that on deeds conveying a specified frac tional Interest In undivided property, the tax should be computed upon the actual value of the Interest conveyed also, that a stamp must be affixed to every deed of conveyance in which the property con cerned exceeds $100 In value.

The Volume of IlimiiieHH Wan Re- juarlcultlc for the Day. New York, Aug. 6. The volume of business today was remarkably heavy for a mid-Summer holiday, and the market showed all the characteristics which are. usually present at periods of great speculative activity. There were transactions of 100 shares and over in no less than 101 different stocks, the interest in the market being unusu ally widely diversified. Furthermore, as might be expected, the dealings in dicated a very considerable increase in general outside interest and commis sion houses were indeed more largely supplied with orders than at any time within manj' weeks. ( Although the general London market was somewhat unsettled, the Ameri can divsion and Spanish 4 per cent's advanced smartly on the status q peace negot'at'ons. At the opening, there was moderate buying in the market for foreign ac count, but toward the close the arbit rage houses reversed their position and were fairly heavy sellers of various stocks. The present local speculative senti ment was such, however, that very little attention was paid to either cir cumstances. There were vry few ex ceptions to the general course of prices. The Granger shares were again the leaders of the market in point of strength and activity. The market closed very firm, with the active stocks showing no mqre than factional recessions from the highest figures of the day. The bank statement today showed a decrease in surplus of 52,011,475. Actual cash holdings increased $1,833,000, but deposits were 515,371.000 larger than they were last week, chiefly on account of an increase in loans of $12,733,000. The change in this item of the state ment was principally due to the shift ing into the bonds of payments made aga'nst the new war loan. The Treas ury accepted as surety paid up no tices of allotments in lieu of the bonds themselves. As compared with the final prices of last Saturday, the entire list is higher. New Yorlc StoeU Market.

Hubber pfd i iU fJJK VJH The whole tone of the stock market has changed during the past week. Tae early days of the week ended a two months" dull season. Prices were at a standstill, and there was no Investment bu ing. Ths ent re spe.ula. ive class seem ed to have deserted the field. Before the end of-Wie Aveek there vas strength . nil aggressive buying all over the list. The investment buyers, who indicate the real stability of a market, had begun to make large orders. Prices (had begun to go up and 4.here was the very clear evidence that a marked change of sentiment had occurred in t.ie street. It is easy to read the reason of tire change. The street is convinced tliat peace is assured now within a few days and is equally certain that peace means -high prices. The hesi tancy of Spain is warehed, but It Is felt that her po!&? of delay cannot iong keep back psace. and at the American terms. There has not been such a -total lack of bears in the street for some time. No body wishes to sell, and there is a very large class of people anxious to buy for Investment and speculation. The result is woll nigh assured to bo a great bull movement. The prediction of many E$ that prices will go up fifteen points. This situation is different from any re cent bull movement In t'hat prices are al ready very high compared with those of recent years. It is very seldom that there Is a now large advance from an av erage very high price. TCiis fact has given some skeptical traders and invest ors some misgivings, and a few even have made the deduction that the bull move ment is a figment of the Imagination of over-confident speculators. The indica tions are too entirely clear, however. Twenty railroads now average 7.33 higher than the high water mark last Septem ber. The industrials do not make mute such a good showing, but they, too, are higher now than at any time in recent years. The almost universal prediction is that the grangers will be the leaders In the advance. If this Is to be so, the grangers will more than any other class begin the advance from a high point. A compari son of the tale of Burlington. St. Paul and the others with those of last year's high price makes a very' remarkable showing. There is every reason to be lieve the predictions of the friends of these roads, however. Their prospects are exceptional. Their e'arnings will al most certainly be magnificent during the coming montlu. St. Paul Is generally regarded as the lowest-priced of the lot. It is 10 points bctilnd Burlington. It Is to be supposed that, as the advance in this stock comes London will buy again. London's hold Irs now are :he smallest in recent years. Burlington, despite Its already record-breaking prices. Is still a great favorite, however. There is talk of 120 among the friends of the road. The street Is waiting for the return of Mr. Gould from Europe with much in terest and expectancy. Perhaps the street is over-sanguine as to the impor tance of this event. Prominent finan cial people have returned from Europe before now. and the street has waited with bated breath for things to happen with no result. The present predictions are that the Gould stocks will show considerable acvlvlty at higher prices, and that Mar.uattan will be equipped with electricity immediately after Mr. Gould reaches this side, The price of Spanish fours yesterday in London was 42 and a fraction, the highest vet. The earnings of the Mobile and Ohio for the year ending Juno 30 increased $16,000. The surplus Increased $30,000. The net increase In the earnings of Pacific Mall for the month of June was $12,000. There is much talk of Rubber common going on the dividend list this Autumn. The prospects of the company are excellent. THE WHEAT MABKET. DlNiippoIntliigly Small Receipts AVcre the "WocIc'm Motive. Chicago, Aug. 0. Wheat at one time was 1 5-Sc. over Friday for September. There has been but one important motive all the week disappointingly small re ceipts. Exporters at the seaboard have been putting pressure upon shippers here, and shippers here have been putting pres sure upon cash wheat handlers west of here. The wheat crop has not been mov ing as it was expected. The result has been extraordinary premiums for the cash. There was just as urgent a cash de mand today as earlier in the week, with the No. 2 red bringing 4c. over September and the No. 2 hard 3 l-2c. over. At the close elevator people were sellers. At primary points there were 323.0C0, compared with 2SC.O0O last year. Minneso ta and Dakota showed a good deal of rain. Although Kansas's report made its corn condition only 59, against 83 last month, the market was weak. So far as the news was concerned, the position eeemed bullish, but the market acted as If over-bought. The Government r6port Wednesday will probably drop the condition about five points, but that would indicate a yield of 3.300.000.000. Clearances were 514.000 bushels.
