Tho followluj very interesting war rcmluisconco hits bcon frequently re cited by General John C. Underwood of Kentucky, nt present tho superin tendent mid secretary of tho Confed erate Momoilnl Assochitlon, with hcadqtiaiters in Nashville, Tonn. As near as I can recollect, his statements were about as follows: When a boy in my teens, like most others of all iieiiods, T dearly loved a circus; nnd, as my fathui ot licit tho "show lot" iu a Southern Keutuekj' town, his children always had tho cov eted tickets whenever a circus or mo nagorio visited tho place. After such visitations tho show fever was ram pant with all tho boys, mid, upou one occasion, culminated in tho organiza tion of a circus, with myfiulf ns ring master aud 'Jim' liurnam, now a dis tinguished lawyer and orator residing at Faycttoville, Tonn., as clown, the other boys of our sot filling various positions. During ono of our momor ablo performances in Mrs. Duuavon's old blacksmith tbop, at Bowling Green, Ky., somo ouo informed mo that boys wero crawling in under tho wealhcrbonrding, which had bceu knocked off by tho billy goats In their attempt to find cover. Untitling to tho placn of disturbance I found sov oral boys trying to work their way into tho 'show1 as stated, mid tho re sult of my interference was a desper ate fight willi Fayette Grcou. which resulted in a drawn battle, for, after weariug ourselves out iu nn hour's oncounler, we ero separated and the show broko up for that day. As a result from such fistic oncounters noit her Green nor myself spoke there after. 1 wont to college, and ho was educated in tho schools at home, but during vacations the ono who saw tho other first ircnerullr i.wcit oniiiv opposito sido of tho street tho contest was too near equal to bo renewed. Tho civil war of tho COs found Green an advoeato of tho Union, and I espoused (ho causa of tho South; and wo accordingly became attached to tho opposing forces so much as foun dation for & war story. "Passing to tho period when Gen oral liuol was retreating from Tennes see to intercept General Bragg of Kentucky, tho summer of 18G2, I crossed tho Cumbeilaiid Mountain and went via Deschoid, oil the McMinnvillo road, to sco my sister, tho wlfo of Major A. M. Rutlcdgo of General Polk's staff, who was residing on their plantation, about ten miles from Defehcrd. "I unexpectedly discovered Federal troop at Dcschcrd, but at tho same tlmo ascertained tiiat Buel was re treating in considerable disorder; aud, consequently, hail liltlo difficulty iu avoiding his pickets in reaching tho McMinnvillo road. After I struck tint road a inllo or mora tiom tho station I folt safo, and was riding along quietly, thluklng of my sister, her children aud tho 'old folks at homo' in .Kentucky. I reckon I had traveled sotno thrco or four miles anil was where the road was inclosed by a high staked and ridcred rail fence; and, after I had got woll into tho lauo,' as it were, what was my astonishment to sco approach ing mo around a curvo in I lie road n Federal wagon train, escorted by a detachment of United. States cavalry. "I immediately looked for chaiico ami means,, of escape, but Uio fences being entirely too high to attempt It) jump either, it was not possible to roach tho foothills of the Cumberland range, aud "liiy alternatives wore to tint, and run or riicci the military de tachment boldly. I had no sooner decided lo ndojit lio latter plan than I thought of the Kentuokf gray hunt, inff," shirt I wns wearing, at tho tlmo used in somo dogrodfcby Confederate?, and, having nu oltP black citizen's overcoat behind niyjsatd!e.4l,)tbonob hand and without turning unbuckled tho straps tliitt pulling it' IIP,' held tho coat, and inittonctl -il across my . -i . . breast so that It hung loosely over loosely my shoulders, concoalliig jlio uniform and hid tho leather pistol, holstcis strapped to my waist, and at iho tamo time I held my hildlo hand over tho bright buckle of my Confederate belt, yiiou I got near enough to iccogulo tho'fnttuics of tho soldiers .wham,i,wisjueotinsJiJj)OM-pd, the ,toseoP" replM tho bookkoepiui 'I he!

I Immediately felt tho possibility of being considered a spy. because of con cealing the gray uuiform with citlzon's overcoat, and I would not Iiavo given tho snap of my linger for my life; but, whilo imagining that I would iu a few minutes grace ouo of tho trees near by, I dctoi mined if I had to go to tho bar of justice that day I would send my enemy to tho other world beforo I wont, mid I undoubtedly showed tho fire I felt within. I mot and never took my eyes off my supposed tnomy, buVwhon I rodo up along by him, al though ho looked straight forward be tween tho care of ids liorso aud avoid ed open recognition, T intuitively felt that ho know" mo; nnd, upou reaching Ills side, ho said iu an uudortono tho llrst words spoken to me for fifteen years: N,A11 right, John!' Ho was a Federal soldier, I a Confederate, aud ho knew it. I was a possible spy (though not ono), becauso I could not havo proved otherwise had I been ar rested and tried by a drumhead court martial, for when au enemy is on re treat there is no great deal of investi gation made as to whether a suspected prisouer is a spy or not. Any way, I, fully realized my situation, and shall over regai d my nou-idontification by my supposed peisoual enemy as a real act truest friendship iu life.

An effort will bo mado during tho approaching session of Congress to in duce that body to enact what may bo called a home rulo law for Arizona Under tho proposed law tho peoplo of that territory, without having nny other representation in Congress than thoy now possess, would, bo permitted to elect their governor aud other terri torial officers. A bill for a law of this kind was in troduced in behalf of Utah just before that state was admitted, and It prob ably would havo bceu passed if the enabling act li;td not taken its place. Tho people of Arizona feel that while statehood may bo far in the futuro for them, tliey should bo permitted to govern themselves iu tho way proposed at that time for Utah, and which would give thorn many of the advaut- ages of statehood, vet without rep resentation in Congress other than that which they now have through their delcgato. There seems to bo no ground what over to object to such a law except on the pal t of politicians whomay think thoy would havo a belter chanco of appointment bv the president th.au of election by tho people.' Eastern peoplo surely cannot object. It does away wllli their chief ground of opposition to tho admission of new slates in tho Far West, which Is that admission would lucreaso tho sticngth of tho West, and particularly of the free coinage clement, in Congress. Ticro would bo no such lnerenso Iu this case There would bo no sfiuators and no representatives. Tho territory would havo no vole iu Concrcss. It couh not lutcrforo'iu matters of nation ,",. ... i.

The list of "dou'ts" printed below will, it is hoped, be found paiticularly fitting at this season of tho year. For the benefit of thoso who are seeking information as to what is and what is not proper at table, it-may bo stated with considerable contidenco that the maxims herewith attached and made a part of the exhibit may b followed as tigidly as circumstances will permit. Here they are: Don't cat solid food from a spoon. Uso your knife. Don't pick your teeth with your fork. It injures tho silver plating. Don't drink out of the finger-bowl. You dou't know who washed his hands in it last. Don't be in too big a hurry to reach the desert. Givo tho ice cream a chance to freeze. Dou't drink too much wine. Re fined people always 6top short of actual inebiicty., Dou't gobble, even over the turkey. It can't hear you and In all probabil ity, wouldn't recognize your voice if it could. Don't swear, even if tho butter has a blase taste. It is admitted that the temptation lo do so is great, but it: "must be firmly overcome. This ap plies especially to tho ladies Don't take your soup plate in both inLBjiuli.aiioiijnn nf.ils contents as you aro unable to dip np with your spoon. If you havent had enough, ask the hostess to "fill 'cm up agaiu." Don't try to carve the fowl unless you have had provious experience and know that you know what you are about to undertake. Even then it is always advisable to offer up a silent prayer for success. Don't lay your napkin across your lap, as is tho custom of so niauy dlucrs-oul. Tuck it firmly in around your collar and let it hang down over your waistcoat. Laundry bills are ex pensive. Don't knock over your dish of hot tea into your neighbor's lap. I, will make him warm, but he will endeavor to hide his feelings by appearing cold toward you for the remaining courses. This statement is somowhat paradoxi cal, but it's strictly true. And, finally, Dou't get mad aud write long letters to the editor because he tries to tell you a fow thlugs that may not have occurred to you. Ucnicinber tho final disposition of by far tho larger part of the communications dovolves upon the janitor, and bo's already tho hardest worked man in tho building. An Editor's Idea.

A sleeping-car passenger on a train ruuulug Into Portland, Ore., strolled into a smoking car and took aseat just in front of a squaw.

She naturally presumed that the conductor's author-' ity to be all sufficient, and forthwith acted on his suggestion with native vigor The man's hat was knocked down over his eye and all but ruined, and the cigar went spinning galley west.
