A acore of aklrmishera were ordered down In front of the regiment to feel the strength of the enemy in the fringe of bushes along a creek. Ambrose uavis wat one of us. He was a man of 30 a plain, eyery day man who had laid down the tools of a mechanic to take up the musket of a soldier. He was not sriren to enthusiasm, but he was an obe dient soldier and the best shot In the company. As we clambered orer the fence and took "open order- on toe broad field which dipped down to the creek, the enemy In the fringe baa dead rest on erery man. War with them also meant kill. To kill one of half a million men means little, and yet It means kill. Z1d! Ping! Zip! It was not firing by file it was not firing by Tolleys Into a battle line half hidden In the smoke, but every bullet that came pinging was meant for an Individual soldier. We crouched down and ran forward. We ale-zaireed to rleut and left We took the shelter of every knoll, brush and stump. The enemy bad to develop his strength to check us. In front ot Davis was an opening in the fringe a spot where a farm road crossed the creek. The enemy to the right and left of this road was using the bank of the stream as a breastwork and we were firing a good deal at random. An officer suddenly appeared in the center of this opening, and raising a pair of glasses to his eyes he took a cool survey or tne regiment far back of us on the bill. He was within pistol shot of Davis and be must have known It, and yet he stood there as cool and calm as you please to take his chance. It was sheer bravado. Four of our twenty naa been killed, and the enemy was seek lng the lives of the rest. I was to the right of Davis and could bare almost hit the officer with a stone; the man on his left had just as fair a target He was not our "game," however he belonged to Davis. We saw our com rade thrust forward a barrel of his musket and bring his eye down to the Dar'l 1 la alghts. Then we watched the officer to I . ,.A !.,. ,hnr ,,n Ma Hanrla mil fall see him throw up bis hands and fall Thirty seconds passed away, and we glanced back at Davis. He had lifted of the heavy siege-guns to be pat In poltioa, a major and a private were kill ed by a sharpshooter who was located In a tree top. He could be plainly made out, but the range was too far for our army muskets. A Berdan rifle was sent for, and when it arrived our captain put It Into the hands of Corporal Davis and said: "You are by long odds the best shot In our company. With a dead-rest over that log you can tumble that man out ot bis tree." Davis hung back and turned pale. Just then a brigadier rode uo to give an order, and his horse had scarcely come to a halt when a bnllet from the sharpshooter passed through the gen eral's bat. He was not only a bit startled, but Inclined to reprimand that the fellow had not been disposed of. When he saw the heavy rifle In the hands of the pale-faced and hesitating corporal he shouted out: "Hurry up, man. and tumble him out of that before he can reload' If yon bring htm down I'll ask your captain to make a sergeant of you five minutes later!" Davis advanced to a atump a few feet away and knelt down and sighted his rifle across It We who knew his marksmanship felt sure that his bullet would speed true. He took a long aim, and we were holding our breath to hear the report of the rifle, when he drew back, rose up and said: "I I can't shoot that man!" The words were hardly out of his mouth when the man In the tree fired again, and his bullet struck down a lieutenant within five feet ot the briga dier. "You idiot, but why don't you shoot V shouted the Indignant general, as he stepped forward. "It is cold blood, sir cold blood r whispered Davis, who trembled In ev ery limb, and was as pale-faced as a dead man. "You poltroon, you coward!" raged the general "Here, you man cut the stripes from his sleeves, and you, cap tain, see that he Is reduced to the ranks on the company roll! He ought to be court-martialed and driven out ot the army In disgrace!" A soldier stepped forward and with his oocket-knife cut the chevrons from the porporal's sleeves, and foor uavis slunk away In disgrace. Here was a strange thing. A soldier who did not hesitate to put himself In a position to be killed could not be induced to fire unon the enemy. His soldierly quali ties were such that he had been taken out of the ranks, and yet he refused to carry out a soldier's first duty to kill. We could not call him a coward- no man Is a coward who will face death but we called him strange and won dered what was back of It all. The men of the company fell away from him, and In a few days he stood almost alone. When we followed up the ene my after Yorktown there was some heavy skirmishing with the rear guard. Ambrose Davis was with the company, and upon one occasion, when the hun dred charged and captured a gun, he battle begaa to dk away. Oa oar front we had only dead and wounded mes, as far as we eoild see. and an firing bad ceased, when a man suddenly root op from the ground about s pistol shot away a ad stood staring at ns. A thou sand men shouted at htm to come and surrender, bat af er a moment he turn ed hit back and kegs a moving away. I do not know why any of the hundred! ot men who had him In range did not fire, but they did to, ftoiue were evea cheering the man, when an officer of Artillery Jumped down among ms and shouted: "Shoot him shoot him why don't some of you bring him dowaT' His words were heard by fifty men. but not gun wat raised. The officet was storming at ua when Dsvis sud denly lifted bis musket and fired, and the retreating man flung up bis arms, whirled about and sank down. Curses and groans followed, and Davis threw down bis gun and hid his face In bit hands and sobbed. "A splendid shot!" cried the officer, "and If I were your captain you would be a corporal to-morrow I" Davia had done a strange thing. We looked at htm and wondered over It The heat ot the battle was yet strong upon us. but the killing of the man seemed little abort of cold blooded mur der.

Max O'Rell considers that French women make better wives for poor or straggling men than do tho womeu of other nationalities. Their ambition and keen sense, ho says, are great helps to a man's efforts, and they Lever allow themselves to weary in their endeavors to be cheery and charming. Mr. O'Rell says that the women are naturally ex ceedingly energetio and endowed with that vivacity which is so great s sup port to their own spirits, and that this enables them to impart animation and courage to others. Other writers have noticed this pe culiarity of temperament in French women, It has beeu said that Americans have it to a certain degree, that degree which compels s constant activity, bat that lack ot true balance makes woman ly energy in the western continent fitful and uncertain, while the Gallio women will be found of more equable natures.

My heart came crowding inio my throat as I watched and as the sec onds passed, and at length I heard the man on Davis' left shouting at him: "Shoot! Shoot! Why the derll don't you drop that officer!" I turned to look at Davis, and as I did so he slewed the muzzle of his gun to the right and fired Into the bushes. A few seconds later the officer lowered his glasses, and swinging them In his hand and Derhaps numming a tune. he slowly disappeared Into the bushes, Later In the day. when Davis' singular action had been reported, the captain said to him: "Davis, I can't believe you are a cow ard, because you went down on the skirmish line to be shot at, but when you bad an enemy fairly under your gun, and an officer at that, why dldn you bring him down?" "I was going 10. sir, but I I couldn't." was the reply. "But they were shooting at you to kill." "Yes, I know."

"You may talk about the wonderful discoveries of gotiLJu the Klondike re gion," said a lawyer s few days ago, "but oue of the richest gold finds of the year occurred right here lu Wash ington. I will not mention names, but the gentleman referred to was known all over tbe couatry before he died as one of the wealthiest pension agents and publishers of the present day. "A short time after the cnptaln (I wlU call hliu 'captain' throughout the story) died, bis executors were engaged In making an examination ot his effects. Ills will had beeu carefully drawn and all of his real and personal property was supposed to be distributed among bis relatives and friends, according to his last wishes. One day lu clearing out the safe in the building which still bears the captain's name an old chest was discovered lu one of the dark corners of the vault It had been there for years, and was supposed to contain only some plates snd drawings of wsr pictures, used In connection with a book of war stories. The executors had passed the old chest by without exam ining Its contents, supposing, of course, that It contained nothing but tbe plates snd drawings, as Indicated by tbe marking on the outside. One of the clerks engaged In the work had curt- slty enough to take a peep Into the chest When the loose drawings were removed s sight met his gaze that fairly took his breath sway. There, nestling among the sheets of war pictures, and at the bottom of the chest, was an Im mense pile of gold coin, which, when counted, amounted to something over $50,000. "There were gold pieces ot every de nomination, from SI to 20. The dis covery was so unexpected that the ex ecutors were at a loss for some time to account for the pile of treasure. The latest will was carefully scrutinized, but nothing In It could be found rela tive to the unlooked-for gold deposit Various theories were advanced to ex plain tbe accumulation of coin, snd It was finally concluded that the captain had followed the example ot other cau tious capitalists during the last raid on the treasury gold reserve, and hoarded the amount found In the chest. Ths coin looked as though it might have been dropped into the chest carelessly, for the various denominations and dates were In happy confusion. The execu tors were unable to account for the omission of the gold pile In the will, for although the captain was a great spender, he usually kept a clear ac count of his securities.

When Napoleon Bonaparte first set tbe five franc piece In circulation the conserva tive mind -oX the French revolted against the numismatic revolution, and It was very difficult to Induce a French man to receive or proffer the new coin. Hence, according to the story, Napo leon gave It to be understood that he had ordered a check for 100,000 francs, written upon asbestos paper, to be con- cealed in one ot the new silver pieces.
