lowing the telegraph line.
111 I stopped before a house where the
* wire* entered a window on the
second story. 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

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

the announce

was to be sur

sergeant called
up general head

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.
"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

"I knew you were from New England.

the major, “(live me your name and

"To kill me for this?" asked the girl,
"To kill you? No; to marry yon If
you'll have me. Any girl who can play

The major was marched away. But
he kept his word. After the war he
sought the girl and married her.

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

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,
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.
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

rash <aith. partook of the honey as he
passed through the woods and was
greatly refreshed. When this was re

Irrigation Makes Garden Spot of
Death Valley.
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
“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.
