Of those who nobly died for nought,

And lay it gently at the head
Of tomb of Lee, whose spirit free

Of them who nobly died in vain.

Oh! forget not thy noble slain:
But lift a shaft of stately craft
To them who nobly died in vain.
Then. mothers dear and sisters faii.
Rouse ve now to this work of love:
And point that shaft of stately craft
Proudly towards the heavens above.
THE BLACKWOOD VASE.
The Hearing in Augusta.-The Prisoner is Dis
charged but Re-arrested.
The proceedings on the writ of habeas
corpus in the case of F. A. Blackwood, of
Aiken, who was kidnapped by Stone and
McNally, came oil before Judge Roney in
Augusta Wednesday. The most impoi tant
paper submitted by the petitioner was the
affidavit of his wile, 3rs. Susam E. Black
wood. She swears, in substance, that
Stone and 3IcNally went to her house on
the night of the 9th of 31arch and asked
for a glass of water, and when it was
handed them by her husband he was seized
violently by the arm by M3cNally, while
Stone pointed a pistol at him and hand
cuffed him. When he asked for what he
was arrested they refused to prodyce any
authority, and simply stated that "they were
authority themselves." That both men
acted in a rude, boisterous and threatening
manner. After arresting him they searched
the house, and besides taking $60 in money
they took one silver watch, one razor, one
pistol and one set of knives and forks,
none of which have been returned. Be
fore they left the house ' .wood en
treated them not to leave his wife penniless
and alone, when they refunded her 415.
That before her husband was taker away
,by the persons above named, as their pris
oner was in irons, he remonstrated with
them, and remarked to them that if they
had given him their authority when they
first arrested him and had not placed him
in handcuffs, he might have cheerfully
gone with them.
Blackwood was then put on the stand,
andhe testified as follows:
"I have been living in Aiken county
since last August. On the night of the 9th
-March Stone and M1cNally eome to my
house, asked for a glass of water, and when
I gave it to them, Stone leveled a pistol at
my head, handcuffed me, took mec into the
house, searched it, and took almost every
thing I had, such as money and silverware.
Mc~taily wanted to take somne jewelry, but
Stone told him it was my wife's, and lie
left it. They then brought me to Augusta,
not taking the handcuffs off till we crossed
the river. On the 16th. seven days after
my arrest, Deputy SheriU Campbell cilme
to the jail and served a warrant, and en
coming from the jail to-day. a few minutes
after 3 o'clock, he served another warrant
on me, a bench warrant. When arrested,
I told them I did not want to come, but if
they had authority to bring me I should
have to come. On the way to WXilhiston
we met Mr. Gunter. lie asked me if I was
going to leave the country. I told him I
did not want to, but these men had me
handcuffed and I could not help it."
Stone was next put on the stand, and he
stated that he did not know it was unlaw
ful to arrest Biackwood as he did; that
such mode of arrest was comimonl: that he
did not draw his pistolt and that Black
wood came alongr voluntariiy.
McNally swore that Blackwood came of
on his own free will and accordl, and rela
ted the story of how a forged note was
passed on him as published.
Mr. Hyams, of the Augusta Ec-ening
News, swore that on the morning that
Blackwood reached Aug~usta he said to him
he did not object to coming to Augusta.
Chief Twiggs and Lieut. Hood swore
that Stone tol them in the presence of
Blackwood thet he made no objection to
coming and Blackwcod said nothing.
The case was argued by 3Iajor Gary for
South CarolIna and by Solicitor Wright
for Georgia. The Court then adjourned
After hearing further argument on
Thursday Judge R~oncy renidered his
decision. After statingt his views of the
comity between States. he said:
"The highest aim of a government is to
protect its citizens. No person shall be de
prived of life or liberty, except by due
process of leaw. The question ar ises, shall
a citizen of one State set aside the laws of
extradition and go in'~o another State andi
arrest a citizen a ithout due processof law?
"If the Courts of Geor ia" or any other
State recognize this. it. woud set at naut
the provisions of the (ConItitution. If a
criminal goes into an'other Stte, the way
to get him is by a reqisition.
'-Then the qtuestion is broughit up as to
whether or not the arrest of Bla:ckwood was
according to law! y Was he deprivedl of his
,liberty by due process~ of law' If so. heC
should not be remanhed: btt not so, he
"The facts, as (jeltedb the testionniy,
are that when Blaickwood wans arrmested it is
conceded that at that time' Stone ad 3Mc
Nally were not armedl by due process of
law. The question is whtecr or -'ot Black

who had first noticed the man's mo
The others looked.
"Pull out," caustically responded the
one who wore a plug hat. "Guess you
don't know much about railroading.
Those motions mean to back up."
Before the other could frame an an
swer sufficiently ironical to suit his
friend's evident lack of mental strength,
the man with the checked suit spoke
"Well, if you fellows don't make mc
tired! That signal means that he wants
to cut the crossing, and for the engineer
to go ahead a little way."
"Jim," patronizingly observed the
man who hadn't yet spoken; "you're a
first-class canvasser, but when you get
into a subject like this you're away off
Pullout! Back up! Cut crossing! 0,
pshaw! It's as plain as daylight that
the play is for the engineer to kick the
train over into the next track."
"May be you fellows think I ain't got
scarcely any sense?" inquiringly re
marked the plug hat man. "I say he
wants to have the train backed up,"
"And if any one wants to tell me I'm
a wall-eyed idiot, he needn't insinuate;
I'm right here," the first man wno had
spoken said warmly as he glowered on
the others. "I say those signals mean
to pull out."
"And maybe some one wants to tell
me I'm a liar when I say they mean
cut the crossing." hotly retorted the
check suit man.
The flagman, attracted by the excited
remarks, sauntered up, and on catching
sight of him all four appealed to him to
referee the question. He looked up in
the direction of the gesticulating man,
and as an expression of disgust man
tled his features he remarked:
"Him! W'y that darned fool's just a
flirtin' with one of the chambermaids in
the St. James. He- "
But they heard no more. Each moved
off in a different direction, and from
that hour were sworn enemies.-ail
The Ney Mystery.
The recent exhumation of the remains
of P. S. Ney, at Third Creek Church, in
Rowan county, N. C., shed no light upon
the mystery of the eccentric man who
many have long supposed was the verit
able Marshal Ney of France. So much
of the skull had passed into dust that it
could not be ascertained whether or not
it had been trephined. Unavailing
search was made in the grave for the
silver plate and for the bullets which it
was thought by many would be found.
A large number of persons were pres
ent, and the exhumation was conducted
by eight well known physicians, who
made the following report:
The undersigned physicians wish to
state that according to previous notice
we did to-day cause to be exhumed the
remains of P. S. Ney, in the presence of
a great number of witnesses, some of
them from Washington City, Raleigh
and other parts of the country. We
found some of the bones only and these
in a state of such decay that we cannot
state positively whether the skull had
even been trephined or not. We made
diligent search for bullets said to have
been lodged in the body but found none.
We succeeded so far however, as to
ascertain that the skeleton was about 5
feet 10 inches long and the skull around
about the eyes about 24 inches in cir

Unveiling an Indian Idol.
A rock which the Sioux Indians near
Fort Yates, D. T., have worshiped for
generations as the petrified form of a
young squaw, was formally unveiled the
other day and dedicated to peace and
plenty. It appears that the white set
ters in the vicinity have long supposed
that this specimen of nature's art work
exerted a restraining infiuence on the
Indians, but of late the rock has been
removed from its original resiing place
and it was feared that with its removal
its charm had disappeared. So the sug
gestion was made to Sitting Eull that the
statue be placed upon a permanent
pedestal and unveiled with appropriate
ceremonies. This pleased the' chieftain
and 5,000 Indians assembled to take part4
in the strange medley of Christian and
pagan rites by which the unveiling was
-The 3Mexican eartliquake seems not
to have been without its compensations.
It is stated that the seismic disturbane
has led to the discovery of both gold and
water in the district affeted, two articles
that are very much needed. Thte aver
age 3Mexican, judging by his personal
appearance, is not as familiar with the
use of water, either in the way of inter
nal applications, as he should be. As toC
gold, he is about on a par with tl'e rest
f mankind-he doesn't walk lop-sided
from carrying too :nuch of it in hisC
pocket. But if one eau-thouake has made
water plenty in a Mlexican district where C
water was unknown before, it may re
quire another earthquake to induce the~
nhabitants to use enough of it to do
hem any good.

everything known for that disease, but
nothing did me any good, and have had
some of the finest physicians of the
