Zl was on the first and second days of September, 1864, General Hardee of the southern forces, was sent to Jones boro from Atlanta with 22,000 men to bead off a formidable flunk movement of the enemy which had for its purposo to cut off southern communication and thereby comp the evacuation of the city of Atlanta. The flank movement consisted of 40,000 or 4o,000 men and was commanded chiefly by Major Gen eral John M. Schofield, together with General Sedgwick, who was also a corps commander, anil coiisisted of the best fighters of tho Federal army. As the two armies confronted each other two miles to the north 'and north west of Jonesboro, it so happened that the little house and farm of a poor old widow was just between the two lines of battle when tho conflict opened, and having nowhere to go she was neces sarily caught between the fire of the two commanding liues of battle, which were at comparatively close range and doing fierce and deadly work. The house and home of this old lady was soon convert ed into a federal hospital, and with the varying fortunes sue was alternately within tho lines cf each contending army, when not between them on dis puted ground. So tho battle raged all day, and the wounded and dying of both armies were carried to the humble shel ter of this old lady until her yard and premises were literally strewn with the dead and dying of both armies. During the whole of this eventful day this good and brave woman, exposed as she was to tlia incessant showers of shot and shell from both sides, moved fear lessly about among tho wounded and dying of both sides alike, and without making the slightest distinction. Final ly night closed the scene with General Scholield's army corps in possession of the ground, and when tho morning dawned it found this grand old lady still at her post of dcty, knowing, too, as she did, the fortunes, or rather misfor tunes, of war had stripped her of tho last vestige of property she had except her little tract of laud which had been laid waste. Kow it was that General John M. Schofleld, having known of her suffering and destitute condition, sent her under escort and arms a large wagon load of provisions and supplies, and caused his adjutant general to write her a long and touching letter of thanks, and wound up the letter with a special request that she keep it till tho war was over and presrat it to the United States government and they would repay all her losses. She kept the letter and scon after the southern claims commission was estab lished Ehe brought it to the writer, who presented her claim in duo form, and she was awarded about $000 all she claimed, bnt not being all she lost. That letter is now on file with other proofs of the exact truth cf this statement with tho files of the southern claims commis sion at Washington. Her name was Allie McPeek and she died several years ago. Atlanta Con stitution. PRIVATE TELEPHONES. New fork Mlllionairea Call Numbers Are Kot Public Property. There are some very aristocratic tele phone owners in the city, but a study of the telephone directory sunplied for the use cf the general public -es not reveal this fact. This is done purposely. It is nonse getting mad if, when you ask for Mr. Croesus Vanderbiltrs telephone number the girl at the other end asks if you don't know it. When you say that you don't know it or try to fool her and say you did have it, but lost the memo randum, she will answer back, "We cannot give you Mr. Croesus Vander bilt's house unless you know the num ber." The fact of it is the girl would be breaking strict rules of the company if she gave this information. There are a good many millionaires and prominent society families who have telephones in their residences, but they are for private use. Only the friends of the head of the house and a few other persons know the number. The mistress of the mansion leaves tho numWerwith her friends, and in exchange receives their numbers. She also leaves her number with" the head of the hospital where she happens to be on the managing committee. This exclusive system is adopted in order that outsiders cannot annoy Mr. Millionaire by ringing him np on the telephone. The men who have tele phones put into their palaces do so with the proviso that their names and tele phone numbers shall not appear in the directory. New tork World. Miss Tanderbilt's Be tort. An amusing story about Miss Ger trude Vandcrbilt is told by one of her school friends. It happened several years ago, when Miss Vanderbilt was in short drei-ses, and the desirability of standing well with prominent people had not yet crossed the minds of her schoolmates. The dispute started over the monthly report book. Miss Vauderbilt's marks were higher than any of the other chil dren's in the group. . "I don't care," exclaimed one of them, "the teachers favor you 'cause you re rich, bnt my father says your grandfather used to sell matches. There didn't be:" And Miss Vanderbilt, who was pos sessed of rare dignity, held up ber curly hea) a trifle higher and answered quietly: "I really don't know. But if he did I'm sure they were good matches." ew l urk Herald. Xn Bomaa Helmet. The Roman helmet of the average size weighed about two pounds and was thickly lined with felt, so that a severe blow could be borne without serious in convenience. These helmets were Intol erably hot, however, and were never worn during the march or at any time save on parade, sentry or guard duty, or in the immediate presence the enemy. ' .- " oriels or Dr. Forestier of Aix-lcs-Bains has an interesting paper in Le Progres Medic al on "The Origin and Terminology cf Massage. " The physician of l Hospice Evangelique is of opinion that the method of treatment now known as massage was first introduced into Eu rope by some cf the returning members of Bonaparte's Egyptian expedition of 199, and relies for his information upon a book entlitled "Des Eaux Ther- malcs d Aix en Savoie," published at Chambery iu 1808. Dr. Daqum, the author of the work in question, after a passage apropos of the douche, speaks of the manipulations and frictions which were observed bv Captain Wallis among the aborigines of Otaheite, and then proceeds as follows : "Those who followed the Emperor Na poleon in Egypt inform us that this method was also in existence among the people of that country, and that it was employed after the bath. The name of massement has been given to it, and it is administered to the person whom they want to masser by rubbing successively the entire surface of his body. According to this account I think that this operation, which strikes me as a very salutary procedure, might with great advantage be put in practice after their bath or douche upon those who xnako use of our thermal waters." London Lancet. Curiosities of the Sewing; Needle. Sewing needles of bone, stone, class and bronze antedate all historic records, but those of iron, brass and steel are comparatively modern. Bone and glass needles have been found in Egyptian tombs that are known to bo over 4,000 years old, and similar domestic instru ments of bronze and copper have been found in the mounds and burial caves of Europe and America which are be lieved to to much older than those found with the Nile mummies. The needlo first appeared in its present form in European countries in the year 1410, but the art cf making them was kept a secret for upward of 150 years after the date last given. In the year 1G80 they were first made in the American colo nies, but at what point is a mooted question among the historians. At present there are no needle fac tories ia America, except those which make sewing machine needles, it being considered much cheaper and more eco nomical to import them from the great Redditch and other English needlo fac tories than to make them at home. Our great National Needle company at hpnugheld, Mass., makes about 30,- 000,000 machine needles every year, and tho great Redditch (English) company makes three times that many, or 80, 000,000, of the hand variety annually. St. Louis Republic. Cost of French Opera Boxes. When the old Marquis do Casa Riera, who had formany years the great Entre CoiouuLS bos oa the right side for winch he paid, if I remember rightlv, 1,200 a year, and which, though he was blind, he filled every night with pretty women died some 15 years ago. tnero was a hot nutter of excitement in the Paris of the opera as to what wonld become of the succession to the box. After a palpitating struggle of influ ences, efforts and diplomacy, equal in emotion to the contest between Ulysses and the Telamonian Ajax for the armor of Achilles, the nephew and heir of the old marquis managed (o keep the box for one night a week ho could not ob tain more and it was won for each of the other nights by persons cf the high est place, who had been longing for it impatiently for years. An ordinary box for one night a week costs from 240 to 320 a year, according to its size and situation. Tho combat for boxes is un ceasing. It is one of the features of the rich life of Paris, and to those who know the people and the circumstances the combat is diverting to watch. Blackwood's Magazine. m Monilay Is Washday. I don't see why it isn't just as well to hang out the family wash on Wednesday as upon Monday: Yet I have known wo men who wouldn't have a flat unless they could wash on Monday. As five floors of two families each can't dry in the back' yard and on the roof on the same day, and the Monday prejudice is very strong, landlords have bad to erect huge telegraph poles in the-rear of flat houses, from which pole lines are oper ated on a level of each floor. This sys tem also affords Ihe additional pleasure of a near view of the number and char acter of your neighbors' family w;ash. There must bo some substantial re'ason for a woman doing just as her neighbors do and what all women in the civilized world do and have been doing for hun dreds of years. New York Herald. The Luxurious Remans. The Romans had no Cower shows. There were "bread and circuses," but not bread and flowers. The luxurious Roman used roses in enormous quanti ties at his banquets. It was a fine joke to have roses fall from above on guests, reclining at their tables, and the flowers in such quantities" as to smother them. A writer in The Quarterly recalls a pic tureof Alma Tadema's "The Rose Feast of Elagabalus," which shows the super abundance of roses. To spend on a ban quet in roses 4,000,000 sesterces, equiv alent to about f 160,000, is recorded by Suetonius, but possibly Suetonius exag gerates. Mast B So. "What do you think of this previous existence theory?'" "I know it to be supported by facts. For instance, I know a woman only 27 years old who often thoughtlessly tells about things that happened 35 years ago. "Indianapolis Journal. Wedding Presents.

Eccentricities That Fasten Tin mai l i na aw Men With the Firmness of Habit, The late Senator Reagan of Texas used to do his thinking with a short string on his fingers, and this string he wound up and twisted and untied and tied again mechanically as he followed the debate. Senator Vest always chews a quill toothpick. Carlisle used to tear paper into bits and drop the pieces one by one on the floor. The latter is a to bacco chewer and sputters when he talks, making it uncomfortable for the interviewer. Max Freeman, the expert stage man ager, pulls you by the coat lapel and then pushes you away with his thumb in the most embarrassing manner. He will suddenly pull you, and then, s if he feared you are likely to tread on him, push you away from him quite as unex pectedly. Jim Thompson, who aspires to be the bast dressed man in town, and comes pretty close to it, has been trying to raise a mustache, but his habit of fin gering one side of it wears that section out, and then the whole must be shaved off and he has to begin over again. A gentleman comes down through Herald square every day who may bo seen glancing at his left shoulder and flecking at it with his right hand. There isn't anything there not even the nap cf his coat, which he has thus worn away. Yet he will keep pecking at it about twice a minute. Another man of my acquaintance is always glancing from one shoulder to the other, as if to see if they are yet really there. A popular Pittsburger on tho square sounds your lungs with his forefinger while he talks to you tapping away like a woodpecker on a hollow limb. Another from tho same burg a good story teller always emphasizes bis sto ries with liberal punches in your ribs. New Y'ork Horald. Wrct She Would Do, "Johnnie, dear," said his mother, who was trying to inculcate a lesson in industry, "what do you suppose mamma would do for you if yon should come to her some day and tell her that you loved your studies?" "r.iot ii ing a falsehood," said dear little John nie, with the frankness of youth. Pitts- Free Pills. Send your address to II. E.
