Co.) MISS XKKUE'S golden youth had 1 on y ago nu'rgod into the hiher jut It until she hud long passed life's of middle age. In fact, it lind neer held lie bloom and sunshine of most maidens, so bhe had trod an unloved meridian. When tlie Widow llohan married for the third time, Jliss Xeelie reflected ut length upon the unjust distribution of marital felicities and soliloquized audibly concerning the forwardness of Bome women. "Xot that I'd care about changin' my way of livin' now " she n&biircd l'liineas, the black cat, who re ceived all her eominunientioits with feline reserve, "but I really would like to know for once in my life how it would bcem to have some man say eoothrn' things to me with intentions." She was in this receptive frame of mind one winter evening ns she sat toasting her feet preparatory to re tiring. The clock wnsit ound, the doors were lucked and the soap-stone was vanning itself at the fender. Miss Tfeelic sat swinging to and fro in her BHE WAS IN THIS ItKCEPTIVE FRAME OF MIND. little rocking chair with her gray flan nel dressing-gown wrapped cosily about her, and her eyes iixed upon the glowing coals. Suddenly she felt that ehe was no longer alone nnil turning with a little npprehenslve sliiicr she saw the door from the hull slowly Fwing inward. A tall person, complete ly enveloped in some dark wrap, entered and paused iih though expect ing n greeting. "Do not needlessly nlarm yourself, dear niadnm; I have not come to harm you, but simply to visltyou as a friend; one, in fact, bent upon the most deli cate embtibsy." "Why, you're a man!" gasped Miss Keelie, recovering from her seiul-par-nly.sls with a conversational jerk, de lighted ut the possibilities of the oc casion, "I have that honor, madlim," re sponded the apparition with a Clies terfleldlan bow, "but do not mistake me for one in the flesh. This is my list nil body and even now my Kiirmu lingers without yon doorway." The significance of this nddrei-.s, couched iib it was, failed to penetrate Mirh Neelie's perceptions. "Oil, do call your Kurma right in. It is dri'iidful cold in the entry. It can lie right here on the rug; 1'hlnens won't, mind, he's real peaceable for a cat." The spirit looked slightly pained ami Tcplied with an air of wounded dig nify: "My good lady, I am not speaking of fin animal, but a disembodied intelli gence. When in the IxhiiIh of the flesh" 1 was a person of advanced thought! One of the very few who, perceiving the injustice of mundane conditions, citiglit to secure equality in all things for all classes. It was not, however, jiuli) yft(T the disintegration of my A Posthumous I I Lover J H By FRANCES MARION EDDY H ! ' I - , - , y ($MJ, iff I iilfSiPsgpiF' morUl nhell that tlie higher phase tho equalization of the affections presented Itself to my no longer ob scured mental vision. One of the most pnthe'ic vlghts to a sympathetic spir itualized intelligence," continued her guest with polished monotony of tone, "is the observation of some worthy, capable femnla soul passing through life unlow'd and nnwoocd." Willi Neelle Milfl'cd with embarrass ment at this obvious personality, but without wailing for a reply from her the .peakor continued earnestly: "When we are in this nbslrnct state yvc perceive charms where once we would have M'cn none. Inspired bj motives too lofty to be tinderstood by one whose idens arc still In a chrysalis of clay, 1 have arrogated to myself the right, nay more, the obligation to ameliorate this deplorable state of af fairs." "Klegnnt language!" was Miss Xee lie's mental comment. "Shouldn't wonder if he'd been an exhortcr or a campaigner in his day." Then, aloud: "If It wouldn't be presumin', sir, would you mind tellhi' me what your business was when you went around like other folks?" "A perfectly natural question, madam, considering the circumstances and your sex. When in the bondage of the flesh I canvassed the country set ting forth the virtues of a certain In ternal remedy known as 'The Helper to Happy Homes;' good for all nerv ous affections, palpitation of the heart, blind staggers and asthma. Unex celled for the cure of chilblains and wonder-working in eases of earache! Lady, is your little child restless at nights and fretful, take a tcaspoonful of this great specific" then recalling himself as Miss Xeelie punctuated his speech with a faint gurgle of maidenly disclaim at so unseemly n suggestion, "pardon me, madam! Your polite and delTerential attention, united with the fact that only for a brief time I have been ttntrnmmeled by the gross ness of my earthly environment, caused me to suiter a temporary illusion and for the nonce I believed myself again in tlie flesh urging the merits of a most worthy cause, instead, I find myself nlone and n't night with one whom 1 recognize as an allinity- and whose yearning heart even jiow cries out to mo for sympathy and consolation." Miss Xeelie, like many others, pos sessed that singular rectitude of char acter which is more the result of lack of opportunity than any c&pccial in herent moral integrity. This delight ful temporizing with the unusual and impeachable was as rain in the barren desert of her experience. The oft-hoped for and long-deferred was here at last! She wished that the erstwhile Widow Hoban could be wit ness of her triumph, although she shud dered to think of what might be th results of that rotund lady's florid volubility if all the facts were made known. In the meantime her guest had drawn nearer and now sat at theoppo site side of the hearth eyeing her with spectral ardor. Miss Xeelie bridled her gray flannel shoulders with rosy co quetry and impiously thanked lie guardian angel for the delay in put ting'tip her hair in erimping-pins. It could hardly be hoped that even so im material a suitor as hers would be en tirely obvious to such unbecoming externals as crimpers. At last she found voice again. "I believe, sir, that your intentions are perfectly honorable, but how can a live woman and a and a Hell, you, get married? I don't for the life oj mo see!" This last rather explosively, as she felt that any allusion to her lover's unsubstantiality was tactless, not 'o say positixely indelicate. "Cornelia," the ghost replied, "you wilfully misunderstand my meaning, My soul turned and looked upon yours and instantly knew its correlative Such worthy traits of character, such noble and beautifiil mental character istics as you possess cannot be over shadowed by external appearances or dimmed by any eccentricities ot speech! Physical 'attributes have no charm for us of the spiritualized vision; they are looked upon as mere carnal appendages of n fettered, intel ligence. As to marriage! In this re lationship, which I now seek to estab lish wiJh you, such material ties nre considered folly and weakness. Xo higher bond can be urged, no moro holy union instituted, than the recog nition of spirit for spirit, even thqugh one be hampered by the bondage to flesh. Cornelia, my soul-liride, my hitherto unloved! T see you yielding to the force of my rensonhig and to your own inclinations. Permit me to console you with the nssurances of my deathless devotion and press upon your lips the nuptial kiss." So saying, the specter arose and stretching out his transparent hands, sought ,n draw Miss Xeelie to his ca daverous breast when, with one great cry of terror and revulsi'on of feeling, she rose to her feet nnil looked wildly nbout the room. The log had broken into henutiful glowing coals; the wind moaned down the chimney like a lost and thwarted spirit; IMilneas lay upon the rug, n demi-circle of contentment. "I must have dozed," said Miss Neellr. Story ToliI Iiy Menu. M.

After the battle with Fremont at Cross Keys, Vn., and tho complete routing of Gon. Shelds' army nt Port Republic the morning following, wo rested for a few days in Brown's Cote. From thenco we proceeded to Staunton, Va., where wo had been promised a few days' rest by Gen. Stonewall Jackson, says a letter to tho Washington Post. Wo arrived there Saturday and wero happily arranging for our comfort when wo received orders to proceed to the rcenforccments of Lee at Richmond, as quietly and rapidly as possible. Our guns (of the Baltimore Battery, Maryland, lino) were placed on tho freight cars, and our men mounted on tho horses proceeded in tho direction of Richmond, as directed. We finally ar rived near Richmond on the Mcchanics villo road, in the rear of McClclian's army. It was there I witnessed a council of war between live of our generals, all mounted, with maps on tho pommels of their saddles, namely Gens. Lee, Jack son, Longstreot, Magruder and Pickett. About dusk ,wo approached so close to the enemy's lino that we fired four shells into their midst. -Darkness coming on, wo ceased firing and lay about our guns all night. The next morning early we took a de tour to the left, and about 0 o'clock we planted our battery in a skirt of woods where we had a plain view of the federal forces. Gen. Bradley T. Johnson, com mander of the "Maryland Line," with tho Maryland regimentof Infantry, were in our rear as support. "We were soon ordered to open fire. While seated on my horse taking note of the premature explosion of some of our shells (caused by the inferior quality of iron they were made of, which allowed tho flash from the gun to penetrate them), a soldier mounted on a magnifi cent horse rode up to me and exclaimed, "Stop this firing!" I looked at him and replied, "I guess not." Our horses were rubbing their heads together, and I stroked the beautiful horse's mane. The rider was in his shirt sleeves. So was I. His shirt was flannel, like my own. His trappings were federal. So were mine, from tho horse out For that reason I had no suspicion of who he was. When the guns had fired an other volley he yelled out at me, "I tell you to stop firing. You are firing at our own men!" I replied: "If you have any orders to give, there's Gen. Johnson be low there, give them to him!" He im mediately rode over to the general, his fine horse stretching himself out as he and the general conversed. While observing them and expecting orders I heard the general exclaim: "Well, who are you, anyhow?" With "STOP THAT FIRING !" that the soldier wheeled around, struck spurs to his horso and simply Hew- across the fields to the federal lines. The remarkable part of the incident was that no one on tlTo general's staff or In, tho regiment or myself had tho presence of mind to shoot at him. It was a federal officer, and probably tho first to convey the news to his army of "Jackson In tho rear." It was a remarkablo escape on his part. He could not have dono such a thing premedltatedly, knowing that he was within tho enemy's lines. His in nocent ignorance is what Bared him, so there seoms to boProvldenco that con trols under such conditions. I would certainly liko to meet him, and break a bottlo with him, as ho had my forced congratulations then, and ho has had my heartfelt congratulations since. That engagement was tho opening of the "soven-days' fight below RI6h mond." He Wn lloftltlith. At ono of tho rounious of tho Fifth Wisconsin, T.' C. Ryan of Company G told a story to illustrate tho character of the privato soldier. On a night march Just beforo tho evacuation of Yorktown, the darkness was almost Impenetrable, and thq mud was, In places, kueo deop. Tho men splashed along tho road covered with water. Stewart J. Fay was marching at tho side of Ryan when tho man in front of him stopped in a hole and fell down. Fay fell forward on top of him and the man began to swear, calling Fay all sorts of names for his carelessness. Instead of gottlng apgry, Fay ropllod: "You blamed hog, you don't want all of tho hole yourself, do you?" Chicago later Ocean. &4feiSr - A STRANGE BELL WETHER. Tenncftftoc Pntrlitt'a Clever lime fox UettlnK Tlirotijrli c Con federate I.lucx. A majority of tho mountain men of cast Tennessee were not only true and unswerving in their loyalty to thounidn, but nine out of ten of tho men ablo to hear arms traveled at night through hills and defiles of that rugged land till they reached tho union camps, where they at once donned tho blue and turned their faces back to their own homes. Thcso bravo men frequently had to disguise, themselves as well as to con ceal their purpose, whilo within tho lines of the enemy. At Camp Dick Robinson, in central Kentucky, early In '02, ono of thcso cast Tcnnessecans was pointed out to mo ns a very remarkable char acter. This man's name was Wiggins. He was a little below tho average height. His nose had been broken, and his hair was gray and his beard long and grizzled. My friend called Wiggins over, nnd af,ter Introducing us, he said: "See here, Wlggy, I want you to tell the captain how you got through tho enemy's lines at Cumberland Gap with your friends." "Wo'el," laughed Wiggins, '"tain't much of a story, but it sarved to fool "WA'AL, I BEGAN TO BAA." 'em, and that's purty hard to do with them fellers down our way." "But how was it done?" I asked, for there was that about tho battered face, kindly eyes and firm mouth that inter ested me greatly. "Wa'al, you see, this is how It was," said Wiggins, as he slipped a quid of tobacco from his mouth into his hand, with an economical view to future use: "There was a right smart squad of we uns, just 43, and we struck the enemy's picket, onexpected like, 'bout an hour after midnight. The confeds heard us, and one of 'em hollered out, 'Hallo! what goes thar?' Afore any of our folks could answer, I whispered to 'em, 'Hold hard! I've come prepared for this. We must play sheep. All of you drop down on all four, and let me do the baaing and play bell-wether. Wa'al, I- had a sheep bell along, and as soon as the boys saw what I was up to they fell into the dodge at once. "'Who goes thar? a feller hollered again. Wa'al, I began to baa and to ring that ar bell In a way that'd a done a wether's heart good to hear and a stole lambs from their own mother. " 'Only sheep,' I heard some one say, as we got up from all four and scooted up the hill. "That's all there is of it, -stranger, only the ole bell and my baaing helped us through more than once. But I don't intend to try it at night nigh whar the Yankee hoys is, for I understan' they're powerful fond of muttin." And having said this, Wiggins rang an Imaginary bell, and went down the camp baaing in a way that showed his powers of imitation were as great as his cour age was cool and his wit sharp. This man proved to be an excellent soldier. He rose to the rank of captain, but the name to which he did not object "the old bell-wether" stuck to him till the eniUof the war. KEPT USE BATTLE FLAG. Confederate Soldier Who Wouldn't Surrender It I2vci) to t'om- muiidiiiKr Olllcer. Lewis S. Trultt died a few weeks ago in Abbeville, S. C. He was a member of tho Nineteenth South Carolina regi ment, and was conspicuous for his brav ery in the battles around Atlanta, says the Columbia Star of recent date. In ono of these battles he was the sev enth man to take up the flag, six having been killed or wounded within a short while, and he advanced the standard to the top of the enemy's earthworks In tha face of a galling artillery fire. It was at one time during the progress of thiB battle that the confederate lines wero badly broken, and Gen. Stephen D. Lee, riding up to Truitt, demanded the colors, but Trultt refused to surrender them. Gen. Leo said to him: "Do you know who I am?" The reply was: "Yes, I know you are Gen. Lee, but It Is my duty to carry tho flag, and I will carry It wherever you order, but you cannot take It." Gen. Leo passed on to another regi ment and upon demanding the colors thoy wero delivered to him. Soveral years ago, while Gen. Leo was visiting this place, Mr, Trultt called on him, and the Incident just related being mentioned Gon. Leo asked him: "Were you the man who gave mo tho flag or tho or-o who did nt?" Th'o answer being in the negative, Gen. Lee replied: "Would to God there had been 10,000 moro there just like you, and u different story would havo been told of thoso fearful battles." .Indued Accordingly.
