Some matters touch ing Benedict Arnold, which were perhaps well epough known a century ago, but which have lapsed into forgetfulness, were found not long ago by a "revolutionary daughter" who for cer tain reasons was trying to find something to lighten Benedict's black history. When it is once said with truth that a man is a traitor to his 'country the damnation is deep enough to keep his contemporaries and a follow ing generation or two from any attempt to find anything that might redeem the traitor's soul from utter blackness. Benedict Arnold's name is blotted out of the revolutionary roll of honor on the walls of the chapel at West Point. On some monuments and on many a page of history Ar nold's name appears, but nowhere may it be seen separated from the title "traitor." The English, who were to have profited by Arnold's treason, hated the traitor after he had joined their ranks. British officers would hold no fellowship with him and his memory is exe crated in England to-day. The British loyalists who left the colonies at the outbreak of the revo lutionary war and went their way into New Brunswick showed Arnold when he afterward went to dwell among them that they held him in nothing short of loathing. Arnold has been lik ened unto Ner~oand Nero has gained by the com parison. Nero merely fiddled as Rome went up in flames, while Arnold is pictured as smiling exultantly at the burning under his orders of his 'birthpiace and at the subsequent putting of many of the surrendered Americans to the sword. It is told that when New London and Groton were a'ttacked and bfurned-l Arnold, commanding the attaking forces, haid o word of reproof for the omier rw , upo% irecei iungthew swerd of Col. rd * e t o de r in or onffset to aruuiu a treatment or tue unDucKy Americans who met his forces along the banks of the Connecticut Thames. Gen. Arnold had met Gen. Warren in the early spring of 1775 and had formed a strong personal liking for him. When Warren was killed it was found that he had left no means for the support and education of his four chitlren. Arnold be came deeply interested in the matter and brought the children's condition to the attention of the continental congress, which promised to do some thing for the little ones, but dilly-dallied over the matter. Arnold had an idea that the congress might not act quickly and so he wrote a letter of tender solicitude to Mercy Schollay, who was caring for the Warren children, their mother hav ing died some time before. In this letter Arnold, nearly impoverished himself, sent an order for. $500 with instructions that he should be drawn upon for more as soon as it was needed. This contribution of the traitor saved Elizabeth, Jo seph, Mary and Richard Warren from destitu tion. Arnold was not satisfied with this, but he wrote spurring letters to Sam Adams and John Hancock, of the committee which had the pro posed congressional appropriation in hand. Then he sent home some money and said: "Send Rich ard, who is now old enough to the best school that can be found, clothe him handsomely, give him all that he needs and call upon me for any future expense." How much food for th ught may be found in one of the letters of Be edict Arnold, traitor, written to Miss Schollay rust before his treason. He had sent more money and had congratulated the children on the pror~ect that the money from congress would be .peedily forthComing.

On one of the slabs occupying a place between two honored names there appears a black blot. Above and below it show the tips of gold letters. Enough of the lettering is visible to let the ob server know after a moment's study that which it is intended in the main to conceal. A black block of marble set in transversely across the golden capitals blots out forever from the roll of honor the name of Benedict Arnold, traitor. Touching on the treason of Benedict Arnold, there is a little-known story which had for the scene of its action the four years of the war of secession. In response to the first call of Abra ham Lincoln for troops a young man appeared at a Detroit recruiting office and enlisted. He went to the front and in the course of six months was made a commissioned officer. He was of a retiring disposition, always courteous to his fellow officers and just to his men, but he sought no close friend. ships. He was noted throughout the comimand as a man whose devotion to duty amounted to a pas sion. He once sought and secured a change in command in order to have a more frequent hand in the heavy fighting. This soldier rose to the rank of a major. He was offered at one time a colonelcy. He declined. He fought in every battle of the later Richmond campaign and was in at the end at Appomattox. The major headed his battallion in the great pa rade of the returning victors up Pennsylvania ave nue. Then there came tle final mustering out of the troops. Less than a month afterward the colonel of a fighting regiment received, a letter bearing a Toronto postmark: "I served all through the war under an assumed name. I trust that I did my full duty. I wish you to know that I did what J did in ord r that I might in some way ,i:ake atohement for the deed of one of my family.
