The summer of 1884 brought the sad
intelligence to Jndge Reynolds that hia
a goidier in the federal army, had
fallen in an affray with guerrillas near
Memphis. Harry Reynolds' captain
wrote to the judge that Harry had
been buried in a Tillage cemetery a

carved, had been placed at his head.

The tide of war flowed here and there

women of the south were engaged in

the absence of so many of the male

was ever near, and they, in many cases.
became inured to the bloody scenes of
those times. Xo sympathy could be
wasted upon even their own dead, and
of course they had little to spare for
the northern troops.
In the town of Barrett, Tenn., where
the remains of Harry Reynolds lay, the
ladies were especially vindictive against
the federal troops. Capt. Leslie had
buried Harry in the village graveyard,
because he wanted to leave a well de
fined clew to his resting place, by
which his friend. Judge Reynolds,
might find the grave of his son. The
act was bitterly rcsrnted by some of
the ladies of the place, and a few even
talked of removing the body. One of

were touched by these tender words of
little Cora Wallace. She saw her ad
vantage, and continued:
"I think you might let me take care
of Ilarrv Revnolds grave. I was
standing by when they put him in the
coffin. He was an awful pretty man.
Not the same kind of pretty that my
brother Charley was. His hair was
light, but it clung to his forehead in
the sweetest curls. Brother was dark,
ami I used to play with the coal-black
hair on his head as it clustered about
his temples. We think the northerners
are wrong, but I suppose they think we
are wrong. Anyway, this poor Yankee
soldier and brother Charley cannot do
anv harm to either side. Lets treat
the Yankee right, and maybe some one
will treat Charley right."
One of the visitors here said:
"Cora is right. Mrs. Wallace. We
cannot afford to carry our resentment
into the graves of our enemies. Let
us remcmlier that once we were Chris

when we can again be such; and let us
not do too much now, that we may re

I'nder the mellowing influences of
talk like this, Mrs. Wallace softened,
and her little daughter asked:

HOW PHRASES ORIGINATED.
Carlooa Expressions That Have Beeom
The origin of the phrase, "I can't see
it," is traced to Lord Nelson, who at
the battle of Copenhagen was told that
a signal was given to cease firing and
the direction pointed out to him. Seiz
ing a telescope he applied it to his blind
eye and exclaimed: "I can't see it"
"Hauling over the coals dates six or
seven centuries back, when feudal

"Corporations have no souls" is a
much older expression than most peo

legal writers of the age. He says in
one of his treatises: "Corporations can
not commit trespass, nor lie outlawed,
nor excommunicated, for they have no
The phrase 'I acknowledge the
corn' originated with a slave. He was
charged with stealing corn found in his
possession. Having a sack with him he
was also charged with stealing that.
His reply was: "Xo, sar; I 'knowledge

among the class of characters called
Jakeys in the local drama. One of
them bring on a committee appointed
to procure a new fire engine was asked
what color the company desired the ap

"Drowning the miller" originated
from the following fact: If the mill
stream below the mill is dammed or
stopped the water is pounded back and
the mill becomes what the millers call
"tailed." There is too mnch water, the
mill will not work and the miller is
said to be "drowned out" Hence when

THE CIRCUS IN
Aa American limitation Which
Crude entertainment as it is, the cir
cus is gradually replacing in Mexico the
wanton brutality of the bull fight. In
many of the states the bull fight is pro
hibited by law, and in Mexico City and
the largest state capitals the revolting
exhibitions are becoming more and
more infrequent. The reputation of
the circus, meanwhile, is steadi
ly increasing. It is the most
popular American institution in
Mexico. There may be a deep
rooted dislike of the invading host of
American railway operatives, mining
engineers, contractors, speculators and
tramps, but the prejudice does not ex
tend to the American clown who can
crack jokes in tolerable Spanish. Let
him be careful to avoid wounding na
tional susceptibilities and he will be the
most popular American in Mexico, but
if he once gives occasion for offense he
will be hissed whenever he reappears
in the town and never forgotten. Mex
icans have tenacious memories when
their dignity is compromised. They
love those who flatter them. They re
sent unnecessary and wanton affronts.

You can take your choice.
All chronic diseases and de

Pierce's Favorite Prescription.
It restores the female func
