HILE General Howe, with his
British ariny, held possession
6f 'Philadelphia, and General
Washington, with the few half-starved
troops under his immediate command,
was encamped -at a place called White
Marsh, a few miles distant from the
city, an Incident occurred, which,
though seemingly trifling in itself, may
have had an important bearing upon
the destiny of the whole country.
Lieutenant ColoneV Craig, command
ing a detachment of light horse, was
ordered to approach the enemy's lines,
and hover near them, in the capacity
of videttes, to pick up any Intelligence
that might be of -value to the army.
While engaged in this Important duty
one cold, raw dajr in December, an or
derly called his attention to a woman
who was coming up the road.
The officer -watched her as she as
cended the Trill, and when he perceived,
by her stopping and looking frightened,
that she had discovered his, command,
he rode forward and called out, in re
assuring tone:
"Advance, madam you have nothing
to fear from true soldiers!"
The lady, who was well wrapped up
in plain, warm garments, with a hood
that quite concealed her features at a
short distance, now came forward,
without hesitation, to meet the colonel,
as if satisfied from his language and
appearance she had nothing to fear.
When near enough for him to distin
guish the features that were turned full
upon him; heexclaimed, In a tone of
"Mrs. Darrah, as I live! Whj, what
on earth can have brought -y0u, all
alone and unprotected, into this' dan
gerous locality?" -
"Thee knows, friend," she "replied, in
the Quaker style, "I have a son in the
American army who is, like thyself,
an officer under George Washington
and a mother's heart yearns toward her
offspring, even though he has depart
ed from thfr ways of his fathers."
"You were going then to seek him?"
"I was; but perhaps thee would carry
a message for me, and let me turn back
to the city?" said the lady, but still
with a cautious, hesitating air.
"It will afford me great pleasure to
oblige Lydla Darrah in any way!"
bowed the gallant colonel.
"Thank thee, friend thee Is very
kind. If thee will dismount then and
walk with me a little way I think I
will tell thee what I have to.say, which
is a secret I would notllke to have any I
other persons hear." '
The colonel assented, and, riding back
to his men, gave his" horse in charge of
one of them and ordered them to. keep j
in sight of him; but not to approach
near enough to overhear an ordinary
conversation. He then returned to the
lady and they began their walk down
the road, in anopposlte direction to that '
which she had come. For a short time
she maintained a deep silence, with her
face averted, and, as the officer fan
clod, with her whole frame trembling
with secret emotion.
"Friend Craig," Bhe at length began, '
with something like a sigh, and speak
ing in the rapid, earnest manner of one
communicating somo startling fact,
"thee must hasten at once to George
Washington and tell him thee has cer
tain information that, on to-morrow
night, a large body of British soldiers
will secretly march out of the city for
the purpose of surprising and captur
ing him and all of his men. Not to
mystify thee, friend, and that thee may
attach all due importance to this Infor
mation, 1 will now Inform thee that I,
Lydla Darrah, overheard an order read
between two high officers to the effect
of what I have stated. Thee must also
know that the man called General
Howe has come to abide In the house
opposite my husband's, and that for
some reason, to us unknown, two men,
one of whdm Is supposed to be called
the adjutant general, have come over
to William Darrah's Beveral times, and
held private conferences In one of the
back rooms of our dwelling. Last night
these two men came again and one of
them told me he wanted all my family
to go to bed early, and that when they
should get ready to leave, which might
be late, they would call me to let them
"Well, Friend Craig, I sent the whole
family early to bed, as requested to do,
but I myself felt very anxious to know
what was going on of so much Import
ance, and so I did what I never did be
foretook off my shoes, walked on tip
too to the door of the room where these
men were, put my ear to the key-hole,
and listened, and heard what I have in
formed thee of."
"God bless you, Lydla Darrah, for a
noble woman!" said the colonel, with
excited warmth; "perhaps you have
saved our country who knows? For
had this plan succeeded, which we will
now defeat, and "General Washington
been taken prisoner, I much fear our
cause would have been hopeless."
"I will make haste to finish my story,
for thee muBt ride fast to George Wash
ington. After hearing what I have
said, I stole back to my room, trembling
it the importance of what I had heard.
When the men, soon after, knocked on
my door for me to get up and let them
out, I pretended to be asleep, and they
had to knock three times. Then I came
out, rubbing my eyes, and saw them
off. But I slept none that night, for
thinking what I ought to do; and I did
uot dare to tell my husband for fear the
secret might get out I wanted to get
the information to George Washington,
and save a great many lives, but for
some time I could not see my way clear
to do it At last it occurred to me that
r might go to Frankford for some flour,
If the man Howe would give me a pass
out of town. I went over to him and he
rave It Thei I told William and my
family, that I would go alone to Frank
ford for the flour, which greatly sur
prised them and caused much remon
strance. But I did; go alone, and thee
sees, friend, how' much I have since
strayed from the' mill."
In due time Lydla Darrah returned
home with her flour, secretly trembling
at all she had done, and the fear of dis
covery. The night following . she lay
awake and heard the heavy, solemn
tramp, tramp, tramp, of the British
troops, as they marched past her win
dow. and on out of thecltyto. surprise,
defeat and capture the army for whose
success she had -not only often prayed,
but had so lately periled more than life.
When, a few days after, these same
troops returned, Lydia Darrah dared
not ask the question she was the most
anxious to have answered, lest her emo
tions might betray her. Soon after the
adjutant general called upon her and
"Madam, will you do me the favor to
enter my room, that I may ask you a
few Important questions?"
Lydia Darrah, believing her secret
discovered, either by chance or betray
al, turned deadly pale, and almost
fainted with terror; but fortunately the
officer took no notice of her emotions,
and soon recovering herself she deter
mined to boldly brave out the worst,
She therefore went to his apartment
with a firm step, nor showed any signs
of trembling when she saw, him, Jock
tho door. I - . -
"Now, madam," he said, with stern
and stately dignity, as he handed her a
seat and took another facing lier, "I beg
you will answer nie truly, as If your
life were at stake! : Who was the last
person up of your family on the last
night I was closeted in this room with
a brother officer?"
"Myself," was the firm and. quiet re
ply of Lydla Darrah.
4,Are you certain, madam?"
"Quite for thee requested me to send
all the family to .bed by 8 oclock, and
I 'did1 so, myself going last" r
"You would be willing to swear to
this, madam?"
"We Friends never swear," returned
the other with- dignity; J'buVthee has
my word for the fact."
"Well," returned the officer, with an
air of chagrin, "I do not understand it
You, I know, were asleep, for I my
self knocked three times at your door
before I could rouse you. We that
night laid a plan to attack and capture
General Washington and his army; but
by some means, unknown to me, lie got
news of our design, and has frustrated
our purpose. When we arrived before
his camp we found all his cannon
mounted, and his whole command pre
pared to give us battle; and disappoint
ed and chagrined, we have all marched
back like a parcel of fools! That Is all,
madam!" concluded the officer, rising,
unlocking the door, and bowing out the
mistress of the dwelling.
Lydia Darrah retired with feelings of
relief better imagined than described.

New York Ledger.
There I3 a Scientific Reason for the
Vecetable'a Pungent Odor.
It is interesting to make inquiry into
the cause of this unfortunate quality of
the onion. It is simply due. to the
presence in some quantity of another
mineral matter in the bulb sulphur.
It is this sulphur that gives the onion
Its germ-kllllng property and makes the
bulb so very useful a medicinal agent
at all times, but especially hi the
spring, which used to be and still Is
in many places the season for taking
brimstone and treacle In old-fashioned
houses, before sulphur tablets came
Into vogue. Now sulphur, when united
to hydrogen, one of the gases of water,
forms sulphureted hydrogen, and. then
becomes a foul-smelling, well nigh a
fetid, compound. The onion, being so
juicy, has a very large percentage -of
water In Its tissues, and this, combin
ing with the sulphur, forms the strong
ly scented and offensive substance
called sulphuret of allyle, which is
found in all the alliums. This sulphuret
of allyle mlncles more especially with
the volatile or aromatic oil of the onion.
JLt Is Identical with the malodorant
principle found in asafoetlda, which is
almost the symbol of all smells that are
nasty. 7; "
The Jiorseradlsh, so much liked with
roast beef for Its keen and biting prop
erty, and the ordinary mustard of our
tables both owe their strongly stimula
tive properties to this same sulphuret
of allyle, which gives them heat and
acridity, but not an offensive smell,
owing to the different arrangement of
the atoms of their volatile oils.
This brings us to a most curious fact
in nature, that most strangely, yet
most certainly, constructs all vegetable
volatile oils in exactly the same way
composes them all whether they are the
aromatic essences of cloves, oranges,
lemons, cinnamon, etc., of exactly the
same proportions, which are 884 of
carbon to 11 of hydrogen, and obtains
all the vast seeming diversities that
our nostrils detect in their scent simply
by a different arrangement of the
atoms in each vegetable oil. Rural
Stones In Codfish.
Among the curious things connected
with the codfish is the frequency of
large stones being found in the stom.
arch. These are of various sizes; some
times in a large fish weighing many
pounds. It is a popular belief among
fishermen .that these are taken just
before a storm for the purpose of an
choring themselves during the expect
ed swells of the sea. This supposition
is corroborated by- the fact that all the
fish taken before a storm agree in this
peculiarity, whereas at ordinary times
nothing of the kind can be detected.

Talco His Balls of Grass Out to Sea
and Eat "While Swimming;.
With my gastronomic taste I natural
ly was very curious to know Just what

none is caught about here, but was
Invited to a sea turtle hunt. Let the
reader imagine a turtle weighing all
the way from 1,200 to 1,500 pounds,
and not long ago one was turned over
on the beach near Miami that weighed
more than 1.G00 pounds. Of course 1
am giving the largest weight, for th
average weight of those caught along
the coast Is about 500 pounds. After
they are caught, the turtles are kept for
a long time, their captors feeding them
on cabbage, lettuce, turnips, carrots
and sea grasses.
The study of this monster shellfish Is
a most Interesting one. In order to get
rid of the parasites that cling to their
shells they often enter fresh streams to
enjoy a bath, but they are extremely
timid " and take fright at the least
noise. The hunter knows, however,
that the turtle feeds In brackish
streams where the tide falls rather low
and where the turtle grass grows In
greatest profusion. The turtles cut
great quantities of this grass and then
roll It into a ball, cementing It as they
roll It with the clay In which the grass
grows, and In this way, when they
have managed to amass a goodly sup
ply of provisions, they wait for high
tide and float away, seaward, feeding
as they float.
The professional hunters are quick to
detect these balls, and just the mo
ment they do so they set their seines

Public Speakers Have a War of Talklac
at One Person in the Crowd.
"I have noticed a rather singular
thing about public speakers," said a
gentleman who had attended one of the
big meetings in New Orleans, "and I
have had occasion to observe the pecu
liarity several times in my life. In
some instances the observation has
been attended with some embarrass
ment Several days ago I attended a
meeting in this city. I was seated well
up to the front, and In fact within a
few yards of where the speakers stood.
One of the speakers apparently deliv
ered his whole address to me. If he
paid a particle of attention to any other
person in the hall I could not notice it.
He spoke with "great animation, and he
kept his eye on me. He literally bom
barded me with his thundering philip
pics, and whenever he shrieked his way
up the scale to a point he would hurl
It down with vehemence, pointed his
finger at me in derision, yelled at me,
made faces at me, and stared at me in
the most fiendish way Imaginable. It
was a .trifle embarrassing, but I man
aged to stand it because I had observed
the same peculiarity in public speakers
before. I have never heard a public
speaker say as much, but I believe they
always pick out some object, probably
some person, and during the greater
portion of the time they are speaking
their attention will be turned to this
object, and it probably aids them in the
matter of mental concentration. It
probably shuts out the side views
which tend to break the evenness and
continuity of the speech. This prob
ably is why some of the early orators
back in tho days of Cicero and Demos
thenes are credited with having Ad
dressed their remarks to stumps and
other Inanimate objects. By focusing
and riveting the eye on an unchange
able object the mind concentrates more
quickly and the speaker is able to pur
sue his subject with greater coherence.
But my own experience In these mat
ters brings back an Incident at one of
bam Jones big meetings eteht or tpn
years ago, when he had reached the
high tide of ills evangelical renntntinn.
A young friend of mine took a young
lady around to hear Sam Jones, and the
cnurcn was jammed to the door, ns wns
usual then at meetings held by the
evangelist They sat prettv close im tn
the pulpit Sam Jones had on his war
paint, and he picked out mv friend nn.
parently. 'You flop-eared hound,' he
said, shaking his finger at my friend;
you reonosed whelp! you blenr-evpr!
sot you drag yourself around in the
gutters of infamy and wallow around
in rum-shops, and then he continued,
leaning over the pulpit toward my
my friend, 'you have the nerve to call
on one of the sweetest and purest little
women in town and come sneaking In
to this church with her.' My friend's
face was the color of red flannel, and
the young lady was as mad as a hor
net She had never heard Sam Jones
before, and she not only believed the
evangelist was talking to my friend,
but she believed all that he said. My
friend told me afterward that the
young lady frequently referred to It
during their friendly spats, and yet It
was nothing more than another Illus
tration of the peculiarity displayed by
public speakers; but It shows, too, that
the matter of playing in the role of the
stump for Demosthenes is not the most
pleasing thing in the world." New Or

Once, at a performance of some play,

Silence followed the remark.
At times something more forcible Is
needed. A certain lady had, one day,
been rudely treated by a minor railway

quite at a loss for words; but she had
a saving sense of humor, and turned tc

Some amusing instances of trans
lators misunderstandings are mention
ed by the London Daily News. An
Italian paper not long ago turned Mr.
Rudyard Kipling's "Absen'tminded Beg
gar" Into a "Distracted Mendicant."
A footnote to the same version explain
ed "son of a Lambeth publican" as a
reference to Mr. Kruger! The trans
lator who explains is.ofteu lost
Another Italian editor who translat
ed a passage from an English paper
about a man who had killed his wife
with a poker added an ingenuous foot
note to say, "Wo do not know with cer
tainty whether this thing 'pokero be a
domestic or surgical instrument."
In the French version of one of
Scott's novels a Welsh rabbit has to be
dealt with. The translator, never hav
ing met with that article of food, nat
urally turned it into "un lapin de
Galles." Unfortunately he had some
doubt whether his countrymen would
understand this and added a lengthy
footnote describing how the peculiarly
delicious flavor of the rabbits of Wales
created a largo demand for tbem in
Scotland, whither they were exported

The IVliJte Shark.
The shark of sharks, the real "man
eater" and the one most dreaded, is
the white shark. This variety reaches
a length of 35 feet and a wefght of
2,000 pounds. Its head Is long and
flat, and the snout far overhangs the
mouth. Its six rows of teeth are sharp
as lancets and notched like saws". Its
mouth is very large, so that one has
been known to cut a man's body com
pletely in two at a single snap of its
cruel Jaws and another to swallow one
at a gulp. Near Calcutta one of these
sharks was seen to swallow a bullock's
head, horns and ail.
From the stomach of another a bull's
hide was taken entire, and the. sailor
who made the discovery insisted that
the bull had been swallowed whole'
and all except the hide had been di
gested. From the stomach of another
was taken a lady's workbox, filled with
the usual contents, scissors and all. It
Is commonly the white shark which
follows the vessel at sea day after day
and week after week.

Potash produces inflammation of the stomach

often chronic diarrhoea follow its use.

Contagious Blood Poison you must take these minerals for two years or longer;
first, a course of Mercury, and when your teeth get so sensitive and sore that you
can't eat, and the giuns have a spongy; unnatural appearance, you are told to stop
and a change to Potash is made. When the stomach rebels you are put on Mercury
again, and so on ad infinitum, or until the system becomes so thoroughly saturated
with these poisonous drugs that the most disgusting sores break out on the body,
the bones become diseased, and the muscles and joints are racked with the inbst'
torturing' pains. Mercury and Potash drive the eruptions and blotches from the
skin, but the virus remains in the blood and the reappearance of the old symptoms
and' the occasional sore mouth show that the poison is still active, and you can
never hope to completely eradicate it by this method of treatment.

ly which has made his life now-a very
happy one. In telling a reporter what
he went through, he said:
"I had "been suffering with stomach
trouble for about two years. . Every,
day about ten o'clock in the morning
and three o'clock in the afternoon I
became faint and felt so bad "that if
I did not sit downrl would fall. That
sensation usually" lasted for about an
hour, and when noon came I had no
appetite for lunch. ...

try them. 1 felt, relief from the first
