Hi i ,
You miy tnlk abrjut tlio pathos
Jn th hnrd,Oilps ot tlio war,
You may talk about tho glory
Ot the causerlhat you (ought fur
Uut there's nothing to palhctlo
As the' lesson wo rccche
From tho quiet, Mlo flapping
01 the useless emptr slccvo
You may talk about tho marches,
Tho Scnnt rations ami "hard tack;"
Of "the last drop In the canteen,"
And "the empty haversack,"
There's nothing so convincing In
Ths Impressions thai you leave
As the mute and speechless record
"Of tho useless empty slccvo.
You may speak of Southern prisons,
Hut their horrors could not last;
Of the roar and din ot tattle.
And thank God that, too, has past,
nut wo see a grim reminder,
Every morn and noon and evo.
In the living, speaking presence
Ot the useless empty sleeve.
Soldiers deck the graves of comrudos
With tho laurol that they won.
Poets sing ot g.tllant heroes,
And otdeeds ot great renowns
Hut there's naught in poets' anthems
Or the chnplcts that they weave
That can heat tho touching story
Of tho usoless empty sleeve.

by Congre.snmii Ontes.
Conprcssman Ontes, of Alabama,
tvrltri to Gonoral Alphom Haltor, of
Louisville, Ky.i ivlottor containing somo
IntcrottlnR personal reminiscences of
Ntimewall Jackson. Ho says: I first
saw liltn tho full ot IStil, in front nf
Manasias, boon aftor ho was sent with
his dlWslon to tho valley of Virginia. I
next saw him early in tho spring of '02,
when Hwcll's division loft tho Rappa
hannock and joined Jackson In tho upper
valley of tho Shenandoah. His achieve
ments I need lint relato. He looked
awkward on horseback, becauso ho rode
with short stirrups; but on foot ho was
full six feet high, squaro shouldered,
slightly round, would havo neighed
about 1T0 pounds; had a full, brown
braid, .straight nose, high forehead,
black hair, thin, nearly to baldness on
tho top, with dark groy oyos, full ot
strength and depth of expression. They
sremrd to look through a man and dis
cern his Ihouchts at a clance. On foot-
he was really a handsome man; I thought '
him remarkably so. Ills voice waseflom
inate und cracked llko an old woman's.
1'or Instance, bo woi)ld say: "I can't ex
cuse you, sir, can't excuso you." Ho al
ways spoke politely, but firmly and to
the point. At tho closo of tho valley
campaign, in June, "02, ho assembled a
general court martial and appointed
me Judge Advocato of It. This brought
me in personal contact with him, and I
bad the advanlago of personal inter
views with him on two occasions. He
decided ery quickly on evory question,
tnid tho reasons for it, and did not seem
impatient, but a good listener and as
soon as the point was fully presented ho
would deeldo the matter calmly, but
with such determination and repotltion
ns at once struck the petitioner with tho
Idea of Its finality; and from It thoro
was no appeal. He rofused a request, it
t all, polltoly, but very quickly and
with such impresslvcness that no man
eer had the temerity to ask him to
overrule bis derision; a look camo from
bis penetrating eyes which showed you
unmistakably that tho answer camo
from ills very soul and was irreversible.
During tho sluing of this court martial
for two or three days, which was all tho
time it ever had, I walked out in tho
woods ono day, and not dreaming that
ho was near, 1 heard a man and turned
to look, and about forty steps distant
was (leneral Jnckson on his knees, alono
and praying aloud.
When ho marched his corps around
I'ope's left wing in August '02. at llrls-
low station I had my third conversation
wilh him which was about removing tho
wreck of cars on tho road. After ex
plaining to him tho Impossibility ot
doing it, bo replied, "Havo you tried
sir.-' I responded, "I havo and it is im
possible to rorpovo tho wreck unless I
had tho proper tools to work with." Ho
said, "Then sot It on flro and march In
tho direction of Manassas Junction
along tlio railroad, whero you will join
your brigade." It was then aftor 8 o'
clock at night and we had marched sixty
mill's in the two preceding days upon
bait rations, green corn and half rlpo
npjiles. It was four miles further to
Manassas; but wo reached tbo brlgado
in the lino of battle and participated In
the capture of the placo that night.
Two days after this he had his corps
tn lino on the old huttlo-field, In tho
shape of a half moon, with tho concavo
side parallel with tho piko, along which
tho enemy came. When they were
squarely in his front, 00,000 strong,
while he had but 20,000 and Longstrcot
twenty miles away, ho pointed his finger
at them and quick ns thought, said to his
Lieutenant, who was near him: "Ewcll,
advance!" and dashed oil on his horso In
tho direction of A. I'. Hill's division.
During the batllo of the next day, whon
Company A. Fifteenth Alabama, had
killed a Federal Major, who, leading his
regiment, tried to cbargo his horse into
their ranks, (iencral Jackson came up to
that spot, and when hu heard tho Captain
rebuke his men, saying: "You should
havo captured hlni, ho was too bravo a
linn to have been killed," tho great
Jackson reversed what "Old Hickory"
said in robuko of bis men for proposing
to kill Hill Weatherford, by saying:
"No, Captain, your men aro right; kill
tho bravo ones, thoy lead on tho others."
Ono day when wo were on tho inarch
. going to Maryland ho was riding from
the rear forward and passed a regiment
from which the men were straggling
and depredating on tho orchards, horodo
nlongsldc tho Major In command and ad
dressing him very- politely Inquired:
"Major, aro you In command of this
leglment?" Tho rcsponso camo with a
low bow, "Yes, (leneral." "Well, Ma
jor.do you know tho position of anoflleor
in nrrest?" "I think I do, General."
"Well, just take that position, Major."
Ho stuck spurs to his horso and wont
thiough the woods In a swift gallop, tho
men nlong tho lino whooping and yell
In;;, which thoy Invariably did whonovor
ho appeared. In momory of tho glory of
ins ticmevemonts.
No ono could estimate bis doptbs; and
ho always appoarod to his own mon and
tbo cnomy at times and places when
they least expected him. Ho was a
combination of Cromwell and Napoleon,
und bad bo over boon an army or de
partment commander thoro Is no tolling
what bo would havo accomplished. Tho
"boys" called him "Old Stonewall," but
In fact ho was only thlrty-nlno years old
t;t his death.

The Touching Mill story of ft Poor Hat
tie. Field Waif,
Wo had boon skirmishing with
Stuart's cavalry, and at a bend In tho
road wo had shelled them vigorously
with our light artillery. As wo passed
this bend, stilt following tho enemy, wo
found four dead mon, threo or four dead
horses, and a boy about ton yoars old
sitting on a stone, so whltcfacod and
scared that ho could not speak a Word.
Wo spoke kindly to him, and tried to
comfort him, and finally ho bogan to
cry. Wlton wo asked for his namo ho
gavo It ns "Jimmy." "Jimmy what?"
Hu was crying so that wo could not niako
It out. Then somo ono suggested that
It must bo "Jimmy Tenr-lrop," and tho
namo at onco became his.
Tbo soldier of tho civil war was a
curious being. Wlillo tho bent ot bat
tlo was in his blood his heart would
grow soft at sight of a poor rabbit fright
ened from cover by tho awful din. Wo
had not a second look for tho dead lying
there, but half a dozen troopers anglod
ns to who should bo guardian of that boy.
Ho was a legltlmalo capture ono of tho
spoils ot war. As a compromlso ho was
sent to tho wagon-mastor for tho tlino
In tlmo "Jimmy Tear-Drop" told us
that his mother was dead. Ills father
lived on tho road by which wo had
marched, and as .Stuart fell back ho took
his boy by tho hand and (ell back with
tho soldiers. In tho confusion fathor
and son had becomo separated, and they
wero never to meet again. Our camp was
thirty miles away, and tho boy wont
thoro with us, and onco within our lines
tbo father, even If alive, had little
chanco to hoar of him.
livery company of soldiers had Its pet,
If not a dog, or cat or goat, then some
thing clso oven a 'possum or raccoon.
It was lato In tho fall when wo captured
Jimmy Tear-Drop, and by spring bo was
known to most all the men In the bri
gade. Ho was a quiet llttlo chap, seem
ing to havo a great sorrow In his heart,
nnd it wns only when ho hoard us talk
ing about tho end ot tbo war, and how
he intended to find bis fathor and bring
about a re-unlon, that he laughed and
seemed boy-like. The ofllcers tried to
tend him away, but wo kept him bid
den and treasured him as If bo had been
a gold nugffot. Our tailor mado him
clothes, and wo foragod him a pair of
shoes, and when wo got him rigged out
wo all felt proud of Mm. I don't think
Jimmy Tear-Drop learned any wicked
ness from us. Wo taught blm to dance,
and bo could sing a song or two, but tho
boys wero careful of their hard words
whon ho was near, and no ono would
teach him any thing about cards. On
tho contrary, "Old Jack," our company
teamster, got somo books and taught
him his A, It, C's, and called us In to
hear Mm spell "dog" and "hen" nnd
"hat" and other easy words.
Woll, tho spring came, and ono day
our wholo army corps moved. Jimmy
went along with tho wagon train, and at
a certain point on ono of tho highways
tho onemy mado a uash and cut oft a
portion of tho train. Wo got It back
attor a sharp fight, nnd when wo camo
to look around wo found about twenty
dead and wounded mon. If thoro had
been nothing moro wo should havo
wheeled Into lino and jested over It. A
soldier takes his chances, you seo. If
ho wins ho gets no credit. It ho falls
there is always oarth onougb to hldohls
body from sight.
Wo wero getting ready to movo on
when there was an excitement among
tho wagons, and wo pushod Into tho
train to find "Old Jack" bonding over
something lying on a blanket on tho
grass. Ho was crying llko a woman,
and somo ot our boys wero brushing
tears from thnir eyes and others hotly
vowing vengeance That something on
tho blanket was our boy our Jimmy
Tear-Drop. A stray bullet had whis
tled through tho cover of tho wagon and
ended his life as quickly as you could
blow out the flamu of a candlo. And as
bo lay thoro on his back, whlto-faccd
and deal and bis eyes half closed, wo
saw through our own tears a great tear
on his cheek a ptarl glistening In tho
southern sunshine which streamed down
through tho snioko yet hanging about
tbo tree-tops. Then In our soro hearts
wo felt that wo had rightly named him
Jimmy Tear-Drop, and that tho hand of
Uod was in it. Detroit Freo Press.
