'JW H, - fS. - There is no difficulty in making up these regiments. From all the various re oruiting stations established in the United States comes the reassuring report that the only difficulty is that of selection. Among the applicants there is of course a certain contingent from that large, floating mass of waifs and strays who have not yet reached the stage of trampdom, but who live as best they can, with no settled home or calling. Ho it requires nice judgment to pick out the right ones from the mass. 'Then, there are tramps open and self-confessed, or if not actually con fessed 1 y word of mouth, self-evident. When the evidence takes the form of an over fragrance of breath or an over rosiness of nose they are promptly dismissed. Stalwart and vigorous as many of them are in appearance, alcoholism is sternly barred by the army regulations. Permanent and professional tramphood would in it self he an insuperable obstacle, but tramphood that is only a recent ac cident in an otherwise orderly life may be overlooked if the applicant §H M3 .; i“ •;(**ir h $ h%\ .i 'WtIIMW i WOULD BE RECRUITS QUIZZING THE COR- i PORAL. has excellent qualifications in other respects. Then there is the large army of the unemployed who have no vagrant , habits save those entailed in the i dreary pursuit of work. These are ! what "the French call consents de j faim—conscripts of hunger. Though they are nominally volunteers, they are driven into enlisting by that hard est form of compulsion—starvation. For one that wants to fight, ninety nine simply want bread. But if they have been earnest and willing and honest in their search for bread, if they have always purchased it by the sweat of their brows, and if they have the mental, moral and physical quali fications for fighting Uncle Sam will not deny them the bread which they are more willing to purchase with their blood. But not even these form the best j material which Uncle Sam has thrust • upon him for selection.

The hardy backwoodsmen of New .England, the daredevil cowboys of the Western plains, the stalwart farm hands in the great agricultural dis tricts all over the United States— these with a little training develop Into the finest soldiers in all the world. There are three recruiting stations in New York. I have stood in al! three of these places and watched the crowd of applicants streaming in, a panoramic study of human nature in its highest and its lowest forms, of j alert and splendid youth, of depressed, | disappointed and degraded maturity, j lu all of these stations the method is j the same. | A sergeant sits at the desk in the ! room into which the applicant is ushered. He is patient, but shrewd; kindly, hut firm willed. He does not balk at any uncouth ness in manner or speech. He is not offended, even by the j freshness of the lad who bluntly de clares, “Say, captain,! wanttoeuhst,” or even the unconscious rudeness of , the tough who inquires, “Be you the | bloke who wants soldiers?” He recognizes that they are not yet soldiers, hut if they have soldierly timber in them they may yet be pol lished to the point of proper soldierly deportment. One thing he is on the I : //y'' i |! i if \ 'sios. | ' RECRUITS WAITING TO RE SENT TO THEIR POST. alert for at the start. This is untruth fulness. Lies about the age are most usual. The age limit is from eighteen to thirty-five. But boys under eight een must have permission from parent or guardian, duly sworn to and at tested by a notary public. If a boy of obviously not more than eighteen or nineteen declares that he is over twen ty-one the chances are that he is on the lookout for a long truancy from home. But if the sergeant was satisfied that the applicant was .neither too young nor too old for service he must be examined as to other points of qualification. The requirements exact that if he b a candidate for the regu lar army he must boa native born or naturalized citizen, able to speak English and to read and write; if for the volunteers it is not necessary that he should be naturalized or know how to read and write, but ho must speak English. These points are easily passed upon. It is most difficult to determine whether his habits are orderly, bis character good, if be is out of work, whether it is his own fault that he is so, and whether he is unmarried. No married man is accepted. The shrewd ness of the officer must supplement the answers he receives, and must further be called into play to deter mine at a cursory glance whether his physical characteristics are sufficient ly near the mark to make it worth while submitting him to the necessary examination by the army surgeon. If he succeed in passing the ser geant, this examination is the next step before his final acceptance. Every morning beginning at half-past eight the applicants who have passed the preliminary examination are mustered before the surgeon. ■* Tests are made of the heart, the Inn-gs, the eyes, the teeth, the bearing. The body is stripped and the individual is made to go through calistbenic exercises. It is a curious fact that more people fail through defects of the teeth and of the eyes than any others. Uncle Sam requires a good digestion and good eyesight. The applicant must have at least two sound pair of molars, each directly above the other, so that they ' can properly perform the function of masticating the food. The eyes must be at least three quarters of the normal. Printed test cards are place 1 ! at a distanceof twenh feet, and the man is made to read let ters of varying sizes. Many learn here for the first time, to their dismay that their eyesight is defective. It is really pitifal to hear *be ex cuses, perfectly honest to themselves, which they make for what they deem to be a mere temporary lapse. They had been anxious; they had been ner vous; they had not happened to sleep well the night before. “Give me another trial,” pleaded t man, who bore every other appearance luj&m i % ,##s; X-WPPtii ha W 4 > 4 the major administers the oath. jof robust health. “I’ll be all right to ! morrow.” But the fiat had gone out. It could not be recalled. He went out angrily, I rubbing his eyelids, as though they were rebellious children who had wil fully brought their parent to shame. To all the men, indeed, who fail in the final test, just when acceptance seems iu sight, rejection is a crushing blow. They who survive are propor tionately jubilant. To each of these I is given a meal ticket and a comforta i b!e cot in a room back of the recruit ! ing office which he makes his bead : quarters until he is sent ofi' to camp I for the training which will turn a mem -1 ber of the awkward squad into a sol | dier.

George Mathis, a farmer living near Red Jacket's Mound on the Naples Road, Geneva, X. Y.. has a three* old-daughter and a large Maltese tom cat. The child was iu the garden playing rritlx the cat, its almost con stant companion. She saw a rattle snake, about four feet along, down the path. She started toward it to play with it. The cat looked after her and saw the snake. As the child ap proached, the rattler threw itself into a coil, sounded the alarm and pre pared to strike. When the child came almost within striking distance, a streak of gray flashed through th> air, struck the snake’s tail and bounded to one side. The rattler turned to attack the cat, which backed up, yowled and spit. The child ran screaming toward the house. Mr. Mathias, who was close at hand heard the scream, picked up a club and ran into the garden. He saw the snake strike at the cat and the latter dodge the blow. Before the snake could recover itself the cat rushed at the snake, but failed to secure a hold. It bounded out of danger while the snake recoiled. Mr. Mathias approached and the snake turned its head. The cat rushed again, caught the snake just behind the head and held on. The rattler twisted, wriggled, writhed and rolled over. It threw the cat off its feet two or three times, but could not loosen its hold. In a few minutes the rat tler straightened out and lay still ex cept for a jerky movement in its tail. It was dead. The cat has been a snake killer since it was a kitten. Mr. Mathias says he would not take §IOOO for it.— New York Sun. Saved the Vase. The little son of a Manchester gen tleman, in mischievously playing with a vase, managed after several attempts to get his hand through the narrow neck, and was then unable to extri cate it. For half an hour or more the whole family and one or two friends did their best to withdraw the fist of the luckless young offender, but in vain. It was a very valuable vase, and the father was loath to break it, but the existing state of affairs could not continue forever. At length, after a final attempt ito draw forth the hand of the victim,\ the father gave up his efforts in despfeir, but tried a last suggestion. “Open your haml!f he commanded the tearful young capAive, “and then draw it forth.” “I can’t open it, father,” declared the boy. “Can’t?" demanded the father. “Why!" “I’ve got my penny ia . m y hand,” came the astounding reply. “Why, you young rascal, 'thun dered his father, “drop it attmlfe!” The penny rattled in the G f the vase and out came the bant? -1 -pit- She Dreeil as a Mrs. Mary East is said y?\havo : been the pioneer -woman in to hold some of the offices as to whit woman’s eligibility is now in dispute,, but she was elected because she guised herself as a man.

Hennessey, Ok., correspondence cf the Philadelphia Times: The cyclone, which earlier in the week swept through Wisconsin and Nebraska, wrecking towns and killing hundreds, reached Hennessey Thursday morning just before 10 o’clock, and that the town is still standing and compara tively uninjured is due solely to the nventive genius of one of the citizens of this place, Capt. John R. Hoades, i retired sea captain, who, though hith ■•Fo generally regarded as a visionary crank, is now hailed as thb savior of the hundreds of lives that but for his unique scheme would unquestionably have been lest. Mr. Hoades* echcme consisted In posting a large 15-inch smooth-bore Parrot cannon, purchased by popular subscription from the condemned stock at the New Orleans arsenal, on the four sides cf the town, each gun un der the care of a watcuiul attendant luring the cyclone season. The can non were designed to be fired into the face of an approaching hurricane, in the hope cf breaking its force. Y/hen the news reached here that a tornado was sweeping southward over the prairies east of the Rockies, it was feared that when it reached the Cinna mon river it would swerve from its track and follow the course of the stream, as was done by the hurricane that killed seven people here in the autumn of 1597, a sharp bend in the stream then throwing the storm over the peninsula upon which Hennessey is situated. The cannon to the west, where the town is partly protected by the Wichi ta mountains, was accordingly with drawn and placed on the northern border as an additional protection. Un fortunately, however, on the approach of the tunnel shaped cloud the western gun was fired a couple of seconds too soon, swinging the storm toward the east, so that the shot from the other gun did not take full effect. The com bined effort so changed tho torua.do’s course, however, that only the ex treme eastern edge cf the town was touched, but here the one house fully in Its path was completely demolished and the cannon which guarded that end of the peninsula was blown from Its carriage, carried fully 500 feet and hurled in a sand bank. The attend ant at the gun. the inhabitants o? the solitary dwelling demolished were warned in time to escape with their lives. In speaking of the marvelous success of his plan for fighting tornadoes. Capt. Hoades, the originator of the scheme, said: “I can hardly claim to have Invented the plan, for I have twice seen water spouts broken by the same method while following my former avocation on the sea. Indeed, it was this that first suggested the scheme to me.” “After tho cyclone of 1597 I suggest ed that Hennessey, which is directly in the path of the south bound torna does, adopt this apparently strange plan of protection. It is only fair to state that at first I was the laughing stock of the town, and it was only by persistent argument that I finally in erested Mr. Thomas, of the Chicasan coal company, in my plan. Backed by so influential a citizen, we finally gathered together enough money by popular subscription to purchase four out of date guns that saw service around New Orleans during the civil war, and mounted them in the places selected. The most singular feature of the whole matter is that the one dwell ing destroyed by today’s storm was occupied by the most persistent doubt er in the town. “An effort will now be shortly made," Capt. Hoades concluded, “to similarly equip ail cities in the tornado belt, the late experience of Wisconsin and Ne braska towms having clearing proved that the hurricane cellars hitherto re lied on are nothing but death traps in which their occupants are crushed be neath fallen walls or burned in the fires which so frequently follow the storms.” A town meeting will be held tonight to do honor to the aged preserver of the town, and the mayor of Hennessey has declared his intention of resigning his post in favor of Capt. Hoades, a suggestion that finds much favor among those who owe their ilvss to the captain’s foresight- It was stated soma time ago that Queen Victoria contemplates altering the routine of the court, which would in the future go to Ostorne from Wind sor at Whitsuntide, return to Wind sor for July, and then proceed to Bal moral until the middle of November, the result being that there would be only one annual journey for her maj esty to Scotland and back. The change will not be carried out this year, in consequence of the Intended visit cf the German emperor to Cowes, as her majesty must be in residence at Os borne while her grandson is staying In the Solent.

How a Manufacturer Secured a "Dry” Town In Indiana. A manufacturer at Three Oaks. I ml., has just inaugurate i a temperance re form in that town that is at once novel and apparently practicable, says the Cleveland Leader. This man, who has several hundred employes, recently of fered to pay into the village treasury annually an amount equal to the. li cense fees derived from the saloons if the authorities would abolish the sa loons and make the town "dry.” If the offer was refused he threatened to remove his factory to another town. The proposition was submitted to the council and it in turn referred the mat ter to the people at a special election. The result was an overwhelming vic tory for temperance. The saloons will be closed, the village treasury will re ceive the annual payment promised, and the factory will not be removed. Of course It is not difficult to tinder stand why this manufacturer desired the closilag of the saloons. He prob ably realized that he could get better work from his employes If they were always sober, and will doubtless dis cover that the money paid for the closing of the saloons is well invested. If the origin of golf dates as far tack as some authorities claim, the game is not such a recent importation as most people seem to think. Curl ously enough, the earliest reference to golf in America is found, as it Is In Scotland, in by-laws prohibiting it as being a public nuisance. It certainly must have been played in New York state 240 years ago. for in hunting back among the old ordinances of the New Netherlands colony, Josiah Newman of New York city has discovered the fol lowing reference, which seams to place the origin of the game here beyond question as early as 1609. It is a rather remarkable passage, and is given here in full: "The W. commissary and com missaries of Fort Orange and village of Beverwyck, having heard divers complaints the burghers of this place, against playing at golf along the streets, which causes great damage to the windows of the houses and exposes people to the danger of being wound ed, and is contrary to the freedom of the public streets; therefore their wor ships, wishing to prevent the same, for bid all persons playing golf on the streets, on pain of forfeiting fl. 25 for each person who shall be found doing so.” This certainly disposes of the claim of the Montreal Golf club to being the first to introduce golf in America.
