Kicking open the front door they mounted to a room used for a telegraph office, where they found a clicking key, but no parson present. A woman's hat hung on a peg, a sniull pair of feminine rubbers were on the floor, and an umbrella with a mother of-pearl handle stood in a corner. A kerosene lamp was burning on the ta ble to which the electric key was fixed. “Tills office Is evidently run by a woman," said the major* commanding. “Come, sergeant, sit down there and get to work." A sergeant stepped to the table and the major rend to him n message to be sent to General J. E. B. Stuart, as fol lows : "\Ve have destroyed the bridge ns or dered. and there Is no retreat for that force of the enemy encamped on the other side. But the destroyed bridge is only Hie miles In their rear, and If they learn that It Is down they may slip away by another route. It may he well, therefore, to move upon them as soon ns possible." "I’ut that in cipher," said the gen eral, "and send it at once." A reply to the message was received, stating (hat two divisions would move simultaneously from different points on the federal force and n third would occupy the position of the wrecked bridge. All would move together by sunrise. The major was Instructed to remain where he was till ordered away, and he sure to hold the telegraph con nections. The men bivouacked In the yard stir rounding the house, while the officers awakened I lie occupants and secured sleeping rooms. The major, to make sure that no message of warning for the enemy should he sent, remained In the telegraph office. He had been on duty for several days, with but a few hours' sleep. There was a lounge In the room, very bulky and with a soft cushion. The major locked the door and threw him self ou the lounge. He was so tired that lie found It difficult to go to sleep. The key on the table kept clicking with the usual words passing over the wire, for the messages that had been sent from that office having been In cipher those controlling the line could not know that the station was In the hands of the Confederates. But what bothered the major was a clicking which seemed to be within the lounge on which he lay. It appeared to be an echo from the key on the table, for when the*key clicked the lounge seemed to click. But the major was so lost to consciousness that It would have taken the report of a cannon to arouse liim. He was awakened at seven o'clock In die morning by one of Ids Junior offi- •ers knocking at Ills door. Arous ng himself, he got up and. after .a hearty break fast called for the sergeant who had sent the mes sage for him. In order to he pre pared to receive the announce ment of the cap ture of the fed eral force which was to be sur rounded. The sergeant called up general head quarters and was Informed that no news hod yet been received from the Confederate forces which had gone to make the capture. The ma jor was Instruct ed to hold the station until or dered away. At nine o'clock n clatter of horses' hoofs “Put That in C I p h e r," Said the General, "and Send It at Once." was heard simultaneously on oil the roads lending Into town. The ma jor sprang to the window and saw fed eral cavalrymen galloping from every direction toward a common center, that center being the telegraph office. There were hundreds of them while he hat! but fifty men. There was nothing to do but await enpture. In a few minutes a force had sur rounded the Confederates In the yard and an officer, throwing hlrnself from his horse, mounted the stairs In the house, followed by two orderlies. Throwing open the door the orderlies covered the major, who. having no Itlea of resisting such a force, surrendered. ELBERT COUNTY TRIBUNE: ELBERT COUNTY BANNER "Captain," said he to the officer who had raptured him. "will you be good enough to explain how you knew we were here?" “Certainly. Your telegram to Gen eral Stuart was repeated to our gen eral commanding the force you Intend ed to cupture. We lost no time In get ting on the other side of the river and. being advised of the movement of your troops, a superior force was sent to cut off that division which was to have got In our rear. This force of yours hup been captured." The major stood with eyes wide open. "You say our dispatch was repeated to you from this office?" "It was." “I sent It In cipher." “We got It In pluin English.” "How could you have done that?" At this point the top of the lounge on which the officer had rested was llfoed and under It the fuce of a young girl was visible. “I can explain the matter," said a soft voice. "This office being In an ex posed position, I had this lounge made for me on purpose. In case I should need a hiding place. I've got an elec tric key In here with me. connected with the main line by a concealed wire running from under the lounge. Wives I heard the Confederates coming 1 opened the lounge and got In. I heard the major tell his man the message be- fore It was put In cipher. So I was enabled to trans mit It In plain language. I knew the major was on tiie lounge, go I only used my key when the one on the table win* clicking. That’s all there Is to It; It's not much of a story." “Not much of a story!" ex claimed the fed eral captain. “Well, that's a good one! Only changed capture of our men Into enpture of John nies " "A Y n n k e e trick !" cried the major. “You’re not a Southern girl, are you?" “No, I'm from Conn e c t I c u t. I was brought down here with the Union army to net ns oper ator.” “To Kill you7 No; to Marry You If You’ll Have Me." "I knew you were from New England. They are very cute up there." replied the major, “(live me your name and address at home. When this war Is over Bin going to hunt you up." "To kill me for this?" asked the girl, playfully. "To kill you? No; to marry yon If you'll have me. Any girl who can play as smart a trirk as that Is worth going to Connecticut for. and doing a big Job of courting to win." The major was marched away. But he kept his word. After the war he sought the girl and married her. (Copyright. 19 3*). Western Ntsaptptr Union.) DAY BELONGS TO THE NATION Since 1868 the Ceremony of Decorat ing the Graves of the Heroes Has Been Observed. Memorial day. or Decoration day, as it was at first called, is said to have really originated with some southern women. In Columbus, Miss., soon after the Civil war. In caring for the graves of their loved ones who had fallen only a few months before, they strewed flowers not only on the graves of th<* Confederate soldiers, hut also on those of northern soldiers-who had fallen In the same battles. Three years after the war Gen. John A. Logan, commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, issued an order In which he named May 30. 1808. "for the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorat ing the graves of comrades who died In defense of their country, and whose bodies lies In almost every city, village or hamlet churchyard In the land." The day Is now a legal holiday In practically nil states of the Union, alUiough all of them do not celebrate May 30. the date being ear lier In some parts of the South. In the South there is also n separate me morial for the soldiers of the "Lost Cause." and this Is called "Confederate Memorial day." In Louisiana It Is celebrated on the birthday of Jeffer son Davis (June 8). who was the first and only president of the short-lived Confederacy. Our Nation’s Heroes.

The Philistine oppression had be come so terrible that the king had only about 600 men. and they were completely disarmed, except that Saul and Jonathan had each a sword and spear. Lest the Israelites should make unto themselves sword* and spears the Philistines took from them their smiths; they only left them a file to sharpen their Instruments of hus bandry. Tills left them under the ne cessity of going to the Philistines to have their tools sharpened. Saul him self was in hiding. Because he hnd presumptuously Intruded Into the priest’s office God rejected him. While In this desperate condition God moved Jonathan to go against the Philistines. 11. Description of the Passageway Between Israel and the Philistines (vv. 4. 5). Over against the way which Jona than and his arinorbenrer had to trav erse. on either aide lay sharp rocks called Bozez and Seneh. The opposing camps were probably three miles apart. It required great effort to scale the cliff. The feat of Jonuthnn and his armorbearer was one of the most daring ever attempted. 111. Jonathan's Resolution to Go Against the Philistines (vv. 6-10.) 1. .Jonathan's summons to the young man (v. 6). Here the thought of verse one Is resumed, verses two to five be ing parenthetical. Jonathan did not doubt hut thnt the Lord was leading him. He recognized his covenant re lationship with God. and therefore his claim upon him as against the uiiclr cutnclsed Philistines, asserting that “there Is no restraint to the Lord to save by many or by few." God is all powerful, so with him numbers cut no figure. Whatever be wills for us he can do. One with God Is a majority. (Deut. .32:30). 2. The noble resjwnse of bla armor bearer (v. 7). He was uctunted by the same faith and courage ns Jonathan and entered heartily Into the under taking. When two agree together as touching anything In the name of Christ It shall be done (Matt. 18:19, 20). 3. Watching for the will of God (yy. 8-10). Doubtless the same Spirit who had moved Jonathan to go had In structed him to watch for the Divine leading. The sign that God would de liver the Philistines Into their hands was the Invitation for Jonathan and Ids companion to come up to the Phil istines. They did not go forward until the sign of divine lending was given. IV. Jonathan’s Marvelous Victory (vv. 11-16). Being assured of the divine leading, Jonathan with his armorbearer sprang forward saying that the Lord hnd de livered the enemy Into the hands of Israel. He did not say "Into onr hands." but "into the hands of Israel." lids Is a fine touch of humility; It shows thnt It wns zeal for God, uot selfish ambition that Impelled him to go forth. God Interposed by n great earthquake. causing consternation among the Philistines, moving them to destroy each other. V. Saul's Foolish Behavior (vv. 17-40). 1. His earnnl zeal (vv. 17-23). After the Lord had given the victory at the hands of Jonathan. Saul called for the ark of God to be brought, after which he went forth In pursuit of the enemy who had already been routed. 2. His foolish obligation Imposed (vv. 24-80) It was that a curse would he upon any one of his soldiers who should stop to eat on that day. Fast ing Is proper at times, but It was the height of folly to demand strenuous service of his soldiers without the necessary nourishment. 3. Ills determination to kill Jona than. Jonathan not huving heard this rash <aith. partook of the honey as he passed through the woods and was greatly refreshed. When this was re ported to Saul he was about to take the life of hla own son. who had so gloriously wrought In the deliverance of his people. Evidence of Things Unseen.

Furnace Creek Ranch, in Eastern Cal ifornia, Probably the Most Isolated Farm In the World—Many Feet Below Sea Level. Probably the most Isolated farm In the world Is situated In a certain spot In eastern California, near the bottom of the I'nltt‘d States, where some min ing men have fitted out a ranch of some 65 acres. The plnce Is knmvn >s Furnace Creek ranch, and It has been made possible by Irrigation, the water being piped from springs in the Funeral tnountulns. FM ward Hogg, In describing the ranch, says that It “Is situated 178 feet below sen level on the floor of the greatest depression on the face of the western hemisphere, within pis tol shot of and only about 100 feet higher than the greatest depth of Death valley. Yet. In spite of Its pe culiar location, the ranch Is within the shadow of Mount Whitney, whose eternal snows tower Into the heavens to a height of nearly three miles, the highest point of land In the conti nental limits of the nation, “Furthermore. Furnace Creek ranch Is probably the only farm In the world where weeds are unknown. As It Is entirely artificial and surrounded by a desert harrier, the seeds of noxious weeds have had no way of getting there, and unless they he Imported by man, the ranch will undoubtedly al wuys remain free from them. “Obviously the Introduction of an abundant water supply wns the prime requisite to make the ranch possible. This !s obtained from two large springs far back In the Funeral moun tains, which pour their streams upon the burned-out Death valley soil through two great aqueducts, one of steel and one of masonry. Pnrt of the water Is diverted along the route to freshen n heavy growth of willows planted to give shade to the water course. But In spite of this, the loss of water from evaporation Is very great, and In summer the water emerges from the aqueduct at temper atures up to 110 degrees. Men and live stock, of course, cannot drink It so hot. Cooling Is therefore effected by means of large evaporation ‘ollns,’ and the drinking water Is quickly re duced to 70 degrees In the hottest weather. “The humidity of Death valley’s at mosphere varies like thnt of other places, but according to analyses made by the United States weather bureau. Its air Is the driest known. Its aver age moisture content Is less than .01 per cent. Water thus becomes ns vol atile as gasoline nnd evaporating cool ing Is accomplished with great rapid ity. It Is tills speedy evaporation thnt has largely made Furnace Creek ranch possible. The rnnch Is primarily a hay farm, the principal crop being al falfa. which Is fed to cattle nnd hogs. After being dressed, the meat Is sent to mining camps. The live stock coaid not live through the scorching summer If It were not for the cooling influence of shower baths with which their corrals are equipped. The cat tle. horses and mules are further pro tected from the blistering winds by having the sides of their pens covered with sheet metal. "White tnen cannot live long In the withering heat. Consequently all the work about the ranch Is done by In dians of the Piute and Shoshone tribes, under the direction of an edu cated foreman. The average life of a white man In Death valley is very short. Three white foremen employed on the ranch lasted two summers each and perished during the third. Two others went Insane and attempted to flee out of the valley on foot. Neither of them lived to get out of the maze of Funeral mountain canyons. "The Stygian temperature of Death valley lasts for about five months of the year, usually from May 1 until Oc tober; the other months are cool and pleasant. Rain Is virtually unknown. Consequently the Irrigation of Funeral creek ranch is continuous." Thrifty? Yes. The other day an Indianapolis law yer took one of his women clients out to lunch. He. being discreet, decided to say nothing about the event to Ids wife. But the tattling friend who al ways learns of such affulrs told wlfej Instead, nnd that evening he wns duly scobb-d for this misdemeanor. "But you sometimes go out to lunch with men who are our friends." pro tested her husband, "and I don’t ob ject. Now. what Is the diff**r«fnce be tween your coming and my going In this way?" “Why, the difference Is In the bill," smiled the wife. "One way you snv« It and the other you [my It." Needed Her Help. Will R is a high school pupil who knew very little of children un til Ids married sister and her three year-old son come home to visit the other day. Now the variety of the three-year-old’s language amazed Ids uncle. He said. “Bow-wow" for dog, “bye-bye” for automobile, "mew-mew” for cut. and even "lu-la" for the vte troln. The other evening Will came Info Hie house. "Say. sis." he culled up stairs to his sister, "you’ll have to give me some help.
