RAIN OF BULLETS.
A Terrible Scene at the Battle 3 of Spottsylvania, The Pierce Straggle at the "Bloody ? Angle." w To koep up the supply of ammunition ^ pnck-mule3 were brought into use, each animal carrying 3,000 round-?, says a Writer in the Century, describing tho n .3ght at tho "bloody angle" at the bat- * tie of Spottsylvania. Tho boxc3 were dropped close behind tho troops en- ^ gaged, where they were quickly opened E by the officers or file-closers, who served tho ammunition to the men. The c writer fired 400 rounds of ammunition, c ^ and many others as many or more. In J this manner a continuous and rapid fire c maintained, to which tho enemy l^^vd with vigor for awhile. ( gas that wo were not to be driven i confederates began to use j ^K^^^^^Hwiscretion, exposing themselves \ SB using the loop-holes in their fire through, and at times - - I&hc muzzles of their ritles on uio i K1, seizing the trigger and ah the stock, and elevating H with one hand sufficiently to Kh. During the day one of our ies took position behind us, sendell after shell close over our heads ]ode inside the Confederate works. In like manner Coehorn mortars 800 yards in our rear sent their shells with admirable precision gracefully curving over us. Sometimes the enemy's fire would slacken, and the moments would become so monotonous that something had to be dono to stir them up. Then some resolute fellow would seize a fencerail or piece of abatis, and, creeping close to tho breastwork, thrust it over I among the enemy, and then drop on the ground to avoid the volley that was sure to follow. A daring lieutenant in one rmr left companies leaped upon the breastworks, took a rifle that was handed to him, and discharged it among the foe. In like manner he discharged another, and was in the act of firing a third shot when his cap flew up in the air and his body pitched h[f"dlft'yT among the enemy. ncartenCa L'onTeaeratcs raised pieces of shelter tents above the works as a flag of truce; upon our slacking fire and calling to thorn to come in they would immediately jump the breastworks and surrender. One party of 20 or 30 thus sig-aificd their willingness to submit, but owing to the fact that their comrades occasionally took advantage of the cessation to get a volley into us, it was some time before we concluded to givo them a chance. With levelled pieces we called to them to come in. Springing upon the breastworks in a body they stood for While we with our fingers pressing the triggers shouted to them to jump, their troops massed in the rear poured a volley into them, killing or wounding all but a few who dropped with the rest and crawled in under our pieces, while we instantly began firing. The battle, which during the morning roged with more or less violence on the tight and left of this position, gradually slackened, and attention was concentrated upon the angle. So continuous and heavy was our fire that the head logs of the breastwork were cut and torn until thev resembled hickorv iMdM'." st'veuf large uaa trcea; wmuTi grew just in the rear of the works,, were completely gnawed off by our Nrging fire, and about 3 o'clock in t. i day fell among the enemy with a loud crash. Strategic Rat Killing. <4To attempt to catch rats by traps or by poisoning them suddenlv will fail." ? * 1 said an old ratcatcher recently to a reporter for the Mail and Express. "Old rats know too much, and can be caught only by kindness. To destroy them, give them a good meal every day. Do not put any poison in tho food, but simply prepare a dish for them daily, as a free lunch, composed of corn meal, moistened with milk, into which one egg with a little salt to season has been beaten. At first they may not touch it, ^)vnt keep it before them, making it fresht everyday. They willsoontrya little, aud if not injurious their suspicions will be a'layed. In a week or ten davs tliev v v will expect it and every rat on the place will be at tho appointed spot, for the 1 treat. Give plenty of it so as to induce l all the rats in the neighborhood to join id. Do not be in a hurry to poison them. 1 If they eat all the food give them a < larger portion next time. As soon as i they have thrown off all suspicion get < some phosphorus paste or other rat [ poison, mix it with the food and bo sure to give them enough and something to spare so as to induce all to eat. They will either be killed or become so sus- * picious of all food that not a rat will re- 11 main. 6 Petrified Clams. ii .fetnlJca clams liavc been found in the v South Catalina mountains, in Arizona, a at a height of nearly 10,000 feet above g the level of the sea.

Tho animal then dies of ^ iffocation. There arp several ways of licving the animal. A piece of wood lout one and one-half inches in diain- ^ ;er may be put across the mouth in tho sc mnner of a bit, and tied to the horns; 1,1 lis helps the animal to diBchargo the $ umulated gas. If this is not effective . is best to open the stomach and let b ut the gas.

The great ben?.^/derived by ants from plant-lise have long been known. , Many species of ants obtain a considerable proportion of their subsistence from nphids and allied insects, honey-dew t constituting the chief part of their food. In a circular received from the Depart- . ment of Entomology, Cornell UniversiT"'?* ? mmmnntino rtn X"rU4C33Ui VUU40fcvm,?j Q the above, says the way the plant-life nrtfi 3 by this association is only Tho slight amount of protection afforded by the ants in occasionally driving insectivorous insects away from ' colonics of aphids can hardly be sufficient 1 to account for the development of the apparatus for excreting honey-dew. The fact, now well known, that certain ants collect and prcservo in their nests tho Eggs of aphids during the winter, indicates that there are more important relations between-the two groups of insects than appear at first sight. And this is ( confirmed by the recent discovery by Professor Forbes that tho corn plant 1 ouse is strictly dependent on an ant. < rhis ant in the early spring mines along r ,.?w 2"<uvikm ivuto ui uio uurijj CQIiGCIS ^ he wingless lice that havo hibernated c n the earth and conveys them into its :urrows and there watches and protects ? hem.
