Mother Biekerdyke Real Angel of Mercy to the Wounded Soldiers of the Armies of Both the North and South. OULD you like to hear more about Mother Biekerdyke, now thnt you know she wns "the soldiers' friend" during "Thnt homely figure, clad in calico, wrapped in a shawl, and surmounted with a Shaker bon net," was beloved by the whole Union army. The soldiers saluted Mother Biekerdyke ns she passed by, and she wns especially honored and respected by General Sherman, who. In return, was her Ideal of all that a man and soldier should be. Here are some stories told by those who knew her: At Chattanooga Mother Biekerdyke had a field hospital where, over huge log fires In the open air, with the help of convalescent soldiers, she mnde great kettles of soup, tea, coffee and gruel, and cooked beef and mutton, and baked bread. Often the flying sparks set her dress afire, and the soldiers who were helping her would run "to put her out," ns she laughingly expressed It. "The boys were all the time putting me out," she said, "and a dozen of 'em were grabbing me whenever I was cooking by the log fires, for the fire would snap and my clothes would catch." Now, it hap pened that Mother Biekerdyke, clad In spurk-hurnt garments—all that she had—visited Chicago to procure sup plies for her "boys." The ladies of the sanitary commission, seeing the condition that she was In, presented her with a box of clothes for her own use. But they did not know Mother Biekerdyke! Did she keep those clothes^ when her "boys" were starv ing? No! As soon as she reached the South she traded those good garments for eggs, milk, honey, fruit and but ter. But not quite all the garments, for among them were two night dresses, very elegant, and embroid ered and helaced and befrilled. These she kept for herself, as they had been sent to her by friends. But as she was returning with her load of good things to eat, she came to a shanty In which were two soldiers Just re leased from a hospital. Their wounds were open and undressed. They were starving, weak, and completely dis couraged, and their shirts were dirty and ragged. Mother Biekerdyke Im mediately washed tlielr wounds and. w the Civil war? 1] Over Huge Log Fires In the Open Air, With the Aid of Convalescent Sol diere She Made Great Kettle* of Soup. tearing off the hems of those pre cious nightgowns, dressed and ban daged the wounds. But the men's shirts were too torn and full of ver min to put on again. "Here, boys," she said, "put on the upper parts of these ulghtgowns. They're Just the thing! M; aakes! but this Is lucky!" The boys, naturally, protested loudly against having to meet their north ern friend* In ruffles and lace, but Mother Biekerdyke would not listen to them. As they were weak from sickness and hunger they had to sur render. and were *o«n meekly arrayed In embroidered lawn, above which their unshaven faces grinned sheep ishly. But on reaching the North they refused to purt with the nightdresses. And hut a few years since one of the garments, marked with Mother Bicker dyke's name, was kept by a Wiscon sin family as a war souvenir. They may have It still. General Grant was another of Mother Bickerdyke's Ideal soldiers. She would never listen to a word In Ills disfavor, and the general liked well her bluff honesty and her fear less devotion to the wounded soldiers. Mother Biekerdyke at one time had charge of a hospital boat that con veyed the wounded from the battle of Donelson to the hospital. When the surgeons brought the wounded on board they found comfortable beds ready, and tea, coffee, soup, gruel, and other foods waiting In grent quanti ties, and Mother Biekerdyke, strong and 'sympathetic, ready to help In ev ery emergency. "I never saw any body like her," said n surgeon who wns with her on that boat. "Theve was really nothing for ns surgeons to do but dress wounds and administer medicines. She drew out clean shirts or drawers from some corner when ever they were needed. Nourishment was ready for every man as soon ns he was brought on board. Every one was sponged from blood and frozen mire of the battlefield, as far as his condition allowed. * * * Incessant cries of 'Mother! Mother! Mother!* rang through the boat. * * * And to every man she turned with a heav enly tenderness, as If he were Indeed her son. She moved about with a de cisive air, and gave directions ln such decided, clarion tones as to insure prompt obedience. * * * To every surgeon who was superior she held herself subordinate, and wns as good at obeying as at commanding." But it was not only to her "boys in bine" that Mother Biekerdyke gave her tenderest care. Whenever a wounded "boy In gray" was picked up on the battlefield and brought Into her hospital, she looked after him and comforted him ns though he, too, were her own son. And today veterans of both North and South who remember her faithful, loving service honor the name of "the soldiers' friend." The Old Flag Off with your hat as the flag goes by.

He was a new little boy at the or phanage and was much Impressed by all the scrubbing and cleaning he saw done there, more so because he had come from a home in which disorder and dirt had held sway. He could not understand it; more than that, it irritated him, and when he got the job of scrubbing the dining-room steps he was almost ready to leave. But Just then came a new excite ment to the home. The board was coming to make its annual tour of In spection, and the cleaning was dou bled.
