An Incident in the Cars
A correspondent of a Western a-
p?r rolates tue following incident,
whic'a'he witnessed iu the cars; 'On
one seat was a pale soldier, lean and
weak, returning, as it proved, from
servico in Arkan3H9, to bo nursed by
his mother, near I ittsburg, whoso on
v son he was. At Wellsville moat
of the passengers got out for refresh
incuts. Some passengers carriei
food afjug and ate it in the cars, but
none offered any to the soldier, who
top weak to walk or not having mon
ey to spare, sat si ill, silent Rt.d alono
As tie train was about Btartiii" two
middle aged ladies c;imo in, and
opening a basket, began to eat a
bountiln! lunch. From their!convcr-
sation tliey appeared to l:e from New
Eualind. f hey were richly druesed,
and judging them to be aridtocruts,
tho writer was not favorbly impressed
with them. After a little while one
of tiiem, o usting her eye forward, saw
the soldier. She stopped etiiig, and
whispering a moment to her coinpau
ion, who nodded assent, she went lor
ward and contforsod pleaSontly with
the soldier, and returned for her m
ket from which she-supplied him !ih-
ernlly with the best it contained. Af
ter eating all lie desired, she wrapped
n apaperaud save him enough to last
him home. After eating enough her
self, 6he sat down by his aide and
talked pleasently with him most of
the way to Pittsburg. The writer
conceived there were few dry cys
among those who saw what passed.
Was not that woman one of the true
aristocracy? Whether the needoJ,
food or tho kinil manner and conver
sation of tho lady was tlio most re
freshing to the long time hopeleen
patriot, or whethur both were not
equally ho, we leave to the reader to
ecide. . '
