( Parorite Camp Story Through
WJiiah Gcacraia -Irr CriticianU
Unlike other liussian soldiers, the
Cossacks are very Isiteliiaent iu" inUitar.v
matters and do not hesitate to
criticise their generals freely among
themselves. They hnre bitter tongues
and a genius for satire. There is a favorite
story which has been told la
Cossack camps for generations. It is
handed down from father to son. the
names .being changed to fit the military
commanders of the (lay. Freely
translated, it runs something like this:
The war god of Ilussia was asleep
in heaven one day when lie was awakened
by the confused clamor of two
hosts in battle on the earth beneath.
He shouted to the Angel Gabriel:
"Look out and see "what my Cos
sacks .-ire qchii;.
"They aro fighting the Turks, and
Prince Potemkiu is leading: them."
"Oh. that's nil right." said the war
god. "He's a good man."
So the deity went asleep again, only
to be awakened by another turmoil.
"What's that?" he asked sleepily.
"They are lighting the Turks again
under Suwarotv."
"He's a fine fellow. They'll do all
And so the story goes on interminably
around the eamufire. each man
add? the name of, his favorite command-.
r until at last one of them
makes the Angel Gabriel mention the
name of some general who happens to
be regarded by the Cossacks as a duffer.
Then the next man makes the
war god reply in accents of great
"Oil. my beloved Cossacks! They
must be perishing tinder that man! It
is time I interfered. Hasten. Gabriel,
aud bring me my long hoots, for 1
must go down at once and save them."

No one really knows how Inrge u turtle
may i?ro\v, but certainly there tioei;
not appear to be much if any exatrfrer
atiou attached to she statements of
Pliny and" Strabo, who, describing the
cbelonopliagi of the Rod sea] say that
they utilized the .shells of the turtles
they had eaten as roofs to thoir huts
aiul boats for their feeble voyages.
Strange to say. the handsomest turtle.
the ha vvk's bill variety (Chelone inibrieata'i.
furnishes the worst flesh, being
so strongly flavored with musk as
to be almost uneatable. This peculiarity
would seem to point to a diet of
sijtiid since these mollusea are exceedingly
musky. Rut it may not be out of
place to remark here that turtle flesh,
even of the best sorts, is not nice. As
Sam Welter's pieman hoarsely whispered,
"It's the seasoning as does it."
A diet of turtle steaks or of hashed
turtle or of turtle soup, nu nature!,
would soon sicken any 0110 but a savage.
For sixpence or its equivalent in
most of the West India island towns
one can get a heaped plate of turtle
steak with bread or jams or sweet potatoes
ad lib. But I never knew even
a hungry sailor who wanted more than
one meal a week of it, "for all its cheapness.
The fact is that in the cult of
turtle soup vre are following (a long
way off, it is true) tbe example set by
the Chinese, -vho love gelatinous soups
and pay fabulous prices for tbe nests
of the sea swallows, tbe bolothuria, or
sea slug, and the sharks* fins because
of their gelatinous qualities. ? Frank

(iueor Urnnkeu Manias.
An English sheriff who died some
years since kept a record of tbe curious
cases of drunkenness that came
under his observation. Several habitual
cases had developed odd manias.
One woman who had been arrested 107
times for drunkenness in twenty-eight
years, had a mania for breaking windows
when she was intoxicated. An
old soldier, suffering from a wound in
the head, always stole Bibles when he
was tipsy. Another man stole nothing
but spades, while'one woman's fancy
ran to shawls and another's to shoes.
A. man named Grubb was imprisoned
seven times for stealin.tr tubs, although
there was nothing in his lino .of life to
make tabs pnrtlerdnrly desirable t >

A locomotive engineer on im eastern
railroad said one day to his two firemeii,
"Suppose yon fellows work as if
yon, and not the company, were paying
the coal bills." During six months,
merely by careful firing, the men
caused a saving in coal, over the average
consumption of the engine, equal
to almost four times the amount of
wages pnid the ineii for that period.
The engine was tiro same: the men
worked differently.'?World's Work.

"The methods of fighting duels among
. the Indians," said au old. frontiersman,
"were varied, each tribe having Its own
peculiar custom. Some of the tribes
learned to fight according to the code
of the white man, however, among
these the Choctaws or Cherokecs.
which reminds me of the famous duel
in July of 1SS3. when the celebrated
Choctaw chief. Carpenter, fought near
the Pine Creek Indian agency with a
white man named Price. Chief CarI
penter was a splendid type of Indian,
j tali and straight and eouiely. and he
i had been tyell educated anu hud natru!
ml talents and natural Instincts that
put him head, ami shoulders over ids
Iudian associates.
"As usual, this trouble was started
by a disagreement over some trivial
matter, which caused a dispute and
ended in the white man calling his
rod brother a liar. Throughout the
trouble the big. Indian had roumiued
perfectly calm, although considerably
angered, and as the insult fell ho gazed
coldly into the eyes of Price and said:
" * Your blood shall wash out that
" 'Whenever you're ready, say the
; word,' cried Price. 'You can do your
washing right hero and now If you
please/ '
" '* '.Not now, sir. but tomorrow morning,
when the sun peeps over the top
of that wild plum tree, you must be
here and without Tail/
I "The report of the due] spread far
i and wide, and at ati hour eoiisiderably
; before sunrise a largo crowd had gatlij
creel - oh the dueling .ground to witness;
; the encounter. Price was the .first on
| the field, and for a time it looked as if
| there would lye no Carpenter. But,
} true to his Indian blood. the chief d;fiI
dai.ued coming too soon at the appoint
j cu place as inucU as lie -would have
! feared; coming too late, and -it. wars just
j as the first rays of .the sua stole over
the soft green of the tree that the rod ,
: man stood in place. N'ot a word war
j spoken by either .num.. Both-'drew their i
: pistols, and, raising the weapons, tliey j
j tired: almost sinm I taheousty. CurpeaV j

j cheeked a tendoncy to .spin round, and. I
staggering, 11 red as the crack of his opponent's
pistol sounded for the second
time. This time Pricejumped Uigli in
the air and landed on his face stone
"With a wild shout the crowd pressed
forward to surround the lucky chief.
| but before hid could reach him he fell
J senseless. Price had been shot through
| the heart, clean as a whistle, a remark
| able shot considering the condition of
I the Indian when he made it, and a
j shot Carpenter c-ordd have made in
the first place without a doubt had Lbeen
as determined to kill as Trio
proved himself when his bullet buried
! itself in the Indian's breast.'*

For years . some of the names of j
our many heroes, dead and living,
have been retained by their descend- (
ants on the long roll of the army, and (
from the make-up of it to-day the r
fact may be perpetuated. One of the ,.
ranking general officers in the ser- ..
vice said the other day that the mere J
relation of these names In the service

In nearly every arm of the service (
in nearly every regiment of cavalry
or Infantry one may see a name (i
which has helped to make American '
history brilliant. That history re- ,j
posits itself remains to be soon, but ^
there Is no dor.it that all of thesesons
stand ready to repeat deeds of g
valor as glorious as those of their fa- ^
minis fathers.
Perhaps the most prominent, o? ^
these sons is Frederick Dent Grant., f
now a brigadier general arid cocimanding
the his Department of the '
1 -akes, with headquarters at Chicago.' "
'Fred" Grant, as lie is familiarly
known, was born in Missouri, his
father being; stationed at St. bouts in
1S50, just after his return from gal- ^
lant service on the Mexican bonier, (
especially at. Chapultepec. Tito, pres- a

Shorninn from March 17. 187:;, to ?
June 1. 1RS1. In October of that
year he resigned from the regular _
service. t
The outbreak of life war with fi
Spain found him colonel of the Fourteenth
New. York infantry, and this _
evidently was the stepping-stone for
his re-entry into the regular army, .
for twenty-five days afterward he to j
appointed a brigadier general of volunteers,
which commission he held
until he again entered the permanent *,
establishment, in February, 1901. Ir. j
a few months he will have reached
the grade of major general, and it ir. .

his compulsory retirement, In
