THE POISONED HAMS. A Wnr Iiiclilpnt nf rnrtlrulnr Interest to l.ntly lleiulerii. "Now, mlstla, ain't wo (rvvlno sen' Marso Knn no liox din Chrla'inas. It p'lntcdly do seem too bad to dlsanp'lnt do clillel" Wo vvoro nil "clilllun" to mammy, and nvcn though my soldlor-brothor now lioro tlie tltlo ot Maor, slio could novor forget tliat a llttlo moro than twenty yean before bo bad laid bis curly bead on her breast, well knowing tboro was jio moro faithful repository for Ills child ish woes. Tears camo Into rSy mother's eyes as fcho thought of tho soldlci-boy who would bavo to bo disappointed, so far as sbo could sco. It was tho Christmas of 1S(!4, when tho people within tho Con federate lines wero almost at tho last extremity of their need. "0 mammy 1" sbo bald, "What bavo wo for a box? Not a turkey nor a chicken, except old Speck, did tho last raldors leau usl 1 sunt to tho villago jester day to get somo eggs, but tho last had been sold at fifteen dollars a dozen. You know last Christmas wo sent tho last coffee, and unless you or Chloe could (to to mako It for him, liamlolph would never bavo It fit to drink, out of tho ryo and ocbro wo use." "Why, mlstls, Is you dono forglt tho plzened bams?" Theso "plzened" bams aro worthy of a placo in history. When It was report ed that tho raldors wero coming, my mother determined to save, if possible, tho few hams wo bad left. Taking mammy and faithful Iten Into her confi dence, sbo proceeded with austentatlous secrecy to tho smoko-bouse, well know ing that tho eyo of a young negro wasat each chink, trying to Und out what "ole mis' was doln' so secrot in tho smoke house." Tho next day tho Tederal soldiers came. Whllo some looked after the live fitoek. others proceeded to tho smoke house, for Virginia hams always had a high reputation. The looks ot the llt tlo negroes told a story of mystery of some sort, which excited tho suspicions of thou soldiers, which wero confirmed when they discovered a lino white pow ler over tho meat. Seizing one black boy by the collar, a Poldier demanded the secret. Tso skeered to tell you." sobbed the boy, while his teeth chattered, "ca'se mammy caught us pcopln', and said ef we told sbo gwlne bus' our bead open." Hut as the danger of a "bus' open head" seemed nun o imminent from tho soldier than from mammy, tho confes s on was finally extracted that "Mo and Dick seed old mis' sneakln' long to do smoke-bouse, and she shot do do' so still like, dat wo peeped in, an' den she was pultin' dat wblto stun" on do meat, an' I ncb Hen said as how 'ef de Yankees eat dat meat dey won't nebber eat nuilln' mo'.'" .lust then a slip of paper labeled "strychnine" was dUcoveied In u corner. So our ptoclotis hams wcie saved by a harmless shower of Hour and a piece ot white paper. With a bam to start with no Confed erate would despair of a box. So Chloo proceeded to make halt a bushel of ginger-snaps, which with "goobers" (pea nuts) constituted tho Confederal con fectionery. I turn now to my "Confed eral!) Reelpe-llook," and seo bow tboso snaps were made: One-Lull incut, one half flour, sorghum, pot-n-.li lnstciul ot sod i (a ilnrfe ponder got Horn lilckoiy nslics by porno homely chemical pro rem, fcunlcn raicd pepper, and n iittlo horse- rauish for punju'iicj." Wo bod peacli preserves, madowltb (he inevitable sorghum, ot course; but us there was not a jar to bo bad, wo bad nluiost despaired of being ablo to send any. .Mammy solved tho problem bv Jin dui'ing some gourds, well-sweetened and dried. These wero filled with the precious sweet, and then tho plug leplaeeil over tho bolo "and secured with paper and panto. Soinn of tho field bunds brought in two young possums, for Mmson said if "Marse Han dono got to bo a major, I knows be alnt forglt to lovo possum." I proposed to sacrifice "Speckle," the only ben I had loft, but Chloe protested I hat "dat old ben bad so much sensoshe inusu't bo kilt, oven for Marso Itan." When the raiders camo the good old i ooli bad stulfed tho hen into an empty I ox in tho kitchen. There tho wise bud staid without making a sound for tblily-slx hours, wondering, no doubt, w hat made the night so long. When sbo was released sbo found herself "mon i roll of all sbo surveyed." IJvory other domestic animal on tho placo had gone Urn way ot all flesh. Hut though tboro was no poultry for it, tho preparation of tho Christmas box went on. In mio corner was nut a llttlo bag of cloudy-looking salt. Randolph bad said In bis last letter that if tboro were alwajs salt, tho com-pono or hard-pan-bed corn would not bo so bad. This salt was a triumph of Confeder ate ingenuity. All tho largo moat-bouses bud a floor of earth, over whichhad been fined and hung the meat used on tho plantation for generations. Those dirt floors wero dug up and tho earth boiled in 1 argo kettles until all the salt was ex tracted. Soveral wagon-loads of dirt produced a few quarts of tho precious powder. Our box was filled at last with ono thing and anothor, and bcemcd to our poor confederate eyes very complete when tho chinks had been stuffed with sweot-potatoos and bome-knlt gloves anil stockings. Tho box was done, but tboro worn no nails with which to fasten it. Tho blacksmith had said, a fovv days boforo, that ho had no moro iron. Hut Hen brought from his stores sonic old borso- hboes. Armed with theso Iinysolf went to seo tho nails beaten out by tho smith since wo dared not trust that precious iron nut or our sight, When "Han's" next letter told us how that bard-won box bad given him and lils brother officers tho first good meal they had onjoyed for weeks, many tears weio shed. Old mammy could hardly stand under tho caresses that wero lav ished on her, as tho prlino movor of tho work. Hut for hor suggestion of tho "plzonod hams," it would novcr bavo been. Clara M. Lynn, In Youth's Com' panlon. It is stated that tho daughtor of Oon- rial I.jon Is living in Colorado in needy circumstances.

A lottor from Cussvllle, Mo., to ths St, Louis (Hobo-Democrat tolls this: Great Interest Is manifested bore ovor a roAiiarkablo clrcumstanco which ha just como to light. It happoncd on Off Davis, near lluzzard 1'oost. When old man Clayback camo out of tho lato war ho was a physical wreck, but llko many othors of tho Stato militia was too Inde pendent to ask for n pension, oven If ho could bavo secured one, and mado bis living In tho best way ho could until his six boys and seven girls got old enough" to help him. About live years ago tho old man bo gan to get very bad vvltji rhoumatlsm, as ho thought, and, nlthough ho used tho entlro crop of spicewood berries which grew on tho creek, ho continued to got worse. Two years ago he got so stiff as to bo confined to his house, and called In a physician, who, after carefully diag nosing tho case, gavo as bis opinion that instead of rheumatism ailing tho man It was a true caso of ossification. Tho dlscaso continued, comploto ossi fication took place, and tho old man died. How to carry out tho wlshos ot tho deceased, who bad expressed a de sire to bo cremated, at first troubled the bereaved family, until they learned that Stephen Symphony was burning lime in bis kiln, which had been fired throo days and was reaching a wblto beat Desir ing to save tho ashes they procured a largo ovaporatlng pan belonging to a molasses mill. Placing tho remains in this, they carefully shoved tho wbolo into tho kiln, which was an opon one on top, and, being built in tho sldo of the hill, was easily accessible. Tho sorrowing family gathered around, expecting tho rapid incineration and dis integration of tho departed. In a fovv minutes tho winding sheet was gono and tho naked body was exposed to tho in-' tenso beat, From the ears, nostrils and mouth camo jets of steam, broken at first, then solid, nnd in an hour bad ceased, but no change was perceivable In tlm silent form. More wood was fed to the glowing furnace to make the vigil of tho bereaved briefer, but still no hange. More wood was pitched In, and hotter still the fire raged. Hour after hour passed, and from a glowing red to an opaque white tho body turned, while on tho countenanco seemed to lest an expression of Infinite peace and satisfaction. So threo days wore away, and the fire must bo drawn or the limo spoiled. Twenty-four hours later, by means of grappling hoops, the pan and body were raised, and, to the surpriso of overy one, the body was still Intact and glowing. A greater and moro pleasant surprise, however, awaited the family, for when tho body becamo cold it was ascertained, that tho intenso heat acting upon the ossified body bad changed It to perfect marble a llttlo lighter In color than tho natural body, but retaining its natural sbape.cxcept on tho back, which is a little flattened. The only defects aro where there was a bullet wound and In the left foot, which is broken in two. In 1870 Mr. Clayback cut his foot very severely, splitting it between the. second and third toes, and, follow ing this wound a rup ture appeared, which caused tho loss as above stated. Where a small blood ves sel had burst in his leg thcro appeared a delicate tracing of tho circulation. Tho family aro having a pedestal cut out ot native limestone, nnd will mount tho "statue," but at present they aro using a black gum block for tho pur pose. AUBREY'S FAMOUS" RIDE. A lent That Has IVvv I'nrallrN In Knilnr nnri' ami Ilruvery. "The greatest physical achievement over accomplished in this country," said .lohn K. (traham to a DenverNews man, "was the ride of I". X. Aubrey from tho plaza of Santa l'e, N. M., to the public square at Independence, Mo., a dlstanco of nearly eight hundred miles, through a country inhabited by warllko Indians, a largo part of which was then a sandy desert." Helng urged to givo an account of tho great lido tlrabam proceeded: "It was about tho year 1M1 that Atihrny gavo bis wonderful test of human enduranco bo foro which all other attempts of tho kind palo Into insignificance. He was a short, heavy-sot man thirty-eight years of age, in the prlino of manhood and stiength. His business for ten years as a Santa Fo trader had mado him per fectly familiar with the trail and all tho stopping places. He was a perfect horse man, and although there wero great riders in tboso days none of them cared to dispute the palm with Aubrey. On a wager of ?1,000 ho undertook to rldn alonn from Santa I'o to Independence insido of six days. It was thlrty-nlno yoars ago that bo undertook tho terrlblo feat It was to bo tho supremo feat ot Ills life, and ho sent a half-dozen of tho swiftest horses ahead to bo statlonod at dlfforont points for uso in tho rido. Ho loft San ta I'O in a sweeping gallop, and that was tho pace ho kept up during nearly overy hour of tho tlnio until ho foil fainting from his foam-covcrcd borso In tho squaro at Independence. No man could Iteep with tho rider, and ho would have killed ovory borso In tho West rather than bavo failed in tho undertaking. It took him just fivo days and nlnotoon hours to perform tho feat, and It cost tho lives of soveral of tho best horses. After bolng carried Into a room at tho old hotel at Independence Aubroy fay for forty-eight hours In a dead stupor before bo camo to his senses. Ha would novcr bavo recovered from thoshock had It not bcon for his wonderful constltu tion. Tho feat was unanimous!? ro gurded as tho greatest exhibition of strength and enduranco over known on tho plains." "What became of Aubroy afterward?' was asked. "Aftor his rido ho becamo tho lion of tho west, and was dined and feted ut St. Louis as though ho had been a conquer ing hero. Ho finally mot his (loath at tlio hand of a friend. Ono day W 1854, in an altercation with Major Itichardll, Wcigbtman, tho great rider wasstabbed to tho heart and dropped dead In a Snnta To saloon, Ho was burled In an un known grave, and all that Is remember ed of Aubrey is his remarkablo ride. Wolghtman was tried upon tho chargo oi muruor, but was acquitted, and. Join' Ing tlio Confederate army, was shot at Wilson'sCrcok whllo leading hlsbrigade inio uauie." FARM AND GARDEN. DAIRY MISTAKES. Bom Tiling That Dairymen Ought Not to Do. Tho disheartening prlcos of 189D for tiuttor nnd ohooso will very llkoly bavo a demoralizing olTect upon farm ers engaged In this branoh of farming. Lot mo urgo yon all, says a writer In tho Ohio Farmor, not to show tho whit fcathor for a momorit or loso your grip at all. It will bo a bettor business In tho near future. Now Is tho ttmo to rovlow tho work and soo whoro mis takos havo boon mado. I will point you to ono or more things to consider. I think It is vory bad policy to lot a veal calf suck a dairy cow flvo or six weeks and havo all tho milk in April or May, to mako a throo to four dollar veal carcass. You might just as woll mako from sovonty-flvo cents to ono dol lar per wcok of tiuttor from tho same milk' and feed tho skim milk to tho calf, slightly warmed, and whonolght to ton woeks old It will thon bring moro money than tho veal calf doos at from four to six weeks old, and you como out from flvo to eight dollars per head hotter, for tho reason that cows will glvo moro milk right along If the calves aro novor allowed to suck thorn at all aftor thomllk Is good. This advantage, togothor with tho OX' tra buttor made, will amount to full) that sum. Farmers that send milk tc cbeeso factories aro tlio most apt tc commit this blunder. It butter com mands tho very low prlco It doos to-daj olght conts per pound and I am buy ing hundreds ot pounds of It from mer chants at that prlco this week It Is fai bettor for tho farmer to buy somo good, largo, clean, pork barrels and fill there with a good strong brlno about ono third full, and as fast as they mako the butter not let It bo exposed to the all at all, but mako it Into rolls and wrar. it In thin, cheap cotton cloth, so the rolls will not stick together and pul them Into this brlno and keep a fol lower with stono weights on to press It down under tho brlno all the time, and your butter will keup In tho best condition from early spring to winter. Packing In crooks or wooden tubs car novor bo mado to do as well as tho above plan. You can then hold your buttoi safely until tho hot weather prices aro over and get morn money for it later on. If it Is over mado fit to eat It will bo good for many months. Theso bar rels should bo placed in somo good, cool placo and as freo as posslblo from any unnecessary stinks. Tho buttor will not absorb any too much salt from the brine. This reform is possible for overy family to observe, and especially where they keep only ono or two cows; If they will manage tlio business as above stated they can keep up their own sup ply of butter and not fool forced to soil cheap In hot weather and pay dear foj It In winter months. (Joplicr Trap. Mr. F. L. Washburn, tho entomolo gist of the Oregon experiment station, writes to tho llural Now Yorkor that tho trapshownhorevvitli hasproved vyry successful In catching gophors in California. In tho last bulletin Issued from the Oregon station a good deal is said about killing gophers. Tho pic ture needs no explanation. Tho trap is sot at tho bottom ot tho gopher's hole. It Is doubtful If ho knows "what struck him" after tho trap springs. Anothci method is to sink five-gallon oil cans about one hundred feet apart In a ditch a. spado wide and about sixteen inches ON THE SKIRMISH LINE. Tin: Codar Creok battlo-ground, In Virginia, has been bought by tho G. A. It. Tun (Irand Army will placo a statue of General Grant In tho statuary hall ot the old llouso ot Representatives at Washington. Ten thousand dollars ha been collected for Hint purpose a aurirnit thai-. deop, which is dug around tho land u bo protected. Thoditch must of course, bo wider than tho cans. Gophers travel at night, and, on trying to como into tho lnclosurc, tumblo Into tho ditch and run along until thoy drop into tho cans. A "smokor," or "sulphur gun" is some times used. This Is a sort of rude pump mado of two pieces of stovepipe, for forcing tho fumes of sulphur into the gopher's hole, lllsulphldo ot carbon Is also used. A pleco of cotton half tho sizoof ono's fist Is saturated with tho liquid and thrust Into tho burrow as far as possible, tho opening being care fully stopped. This should bo dono when tho ground is damp. Wo aro also told of an ingenious trap for catching jack rabbits. A pieco ot ground about fifteen feet squaro in a locality lnfostod by rabbits, is surrounded by a board fenco high enough to prevent tholr jumping ovor. On ono sldo a plank runs from tho ground, with an oasy slope, to tho top of tho pen, and pro jects a foot over tho lnclosurc. Above tho projecting end, nnd just far enough In front of it to cause tho animal to reach, loso his balance, and fall Into tha pen, is hung somo tempting halt A llttlo bait is scattered along outsldo tho pon and along tho plank to attract tho rabbits. Filling Up Null Hotel. Tho following mothod of filling up lall holes in wood is not only simple, but said to bo effectual. Take lino saw dust and mix Into a thick paste with gluo, pound it into tho holo, and when dry It will mako tho wood as good as now. l'rank Christian, Jr., In Stove and Hardware says ho has followed this plan for thirty yoars with unvary ing succoss In repairing hollows, which Is tho most sovoro tost known. Often by frequent attachment ot now loathor to old bellows framos, tho wood be comes so perforated that tboro Is no spaco to drive tho nails, and ovon if thcro was, tho remaining holes would allow tho air to escape. Gluo and saw dust pasta do tho work, whllo load, putty and othor remedies otton fall. An otherwlso unsightly old stump, It sawed off rather low, says a contempo rary, may bo transformed Into somo thing qulto pretty by placing on- it a box rilled with ourth nnd planted with ferns and Tradoscantla or almost any trailing vine. If something brilliant Is wanted fill tho box with scarlet gera niums and let nasturtiums trail over tho edgo. Tho box can bo painted groon or bo covered with bark tacked on to rep resent a rustic nasirot. One of tho ponaltlos a great man must endure la having ovory thing, from ba' bles-and short-horns to now potatoes, named after him.
