Cedar Creek Fight. Serg't Forbes, Co. D, 175th N. Y., was in command ot the , guard of the Nineteenth Corps ammunition train at . ' Cedar Creek, and was in rather a tight place for a time in the morning, for he says: "The mules were quickly . harnessed and hitched in, and none too soon, for the orders had hardly come to move to the rear when the rebels came swarming up to and over the light breastworks of our front, Our artillery was worked for all it was . worth, and in such close quarters that I saw a gunner knock a rebel down with his sponge-staff before he was .. driren from his gun. All this time , the fighting was very heavy all around us by the Nineteenth as well as the Sixth Corps. After pulling out of camp we had a ravine to cross, and the enemy was close upon us. I be lieved then, and de yet, that the train would have been captured had it not been for a battery of brass guns that gained position on an elevation and put in a heavy fire of canister over our ; heads. We escaped, however, with the loss of only one wagon, which was blown up." The position the train took was just In the rear of : the new line, where he witnessed what he de clares to hare "fceen the grandest charge and rout of the enemy that he saw in three years service. Mwm orocKeu, coin in. x., says at Cedar Creek the Confederates came very near the lines of the Sixth' Corps in the thick fog of the early morning. The writer's regiment was in the Sec ond Brigade, .First Division, and fought the rebels until they fell back, but they were soon after flanked and fell back in some confusion, reform ing beyond the reach ot their fire, Gen. Wright gave them full credit for driving back the Confederates, but said that CoL McKenzie, the gal lant commander ot the 2d Conn. II. A., 'commanded the brigade, when it was commanded by CoL Hamlin, ' of the 56th N. Y. McKenzie was a WeBt Pointer, but Hamlin was not. ., The writer saw Hamlin's horse fall under him, and Hamlin wounded by the fire of the flanked rebels. After Hamlin was disabled McKenzie took command ot the brigade, but most of the hard fighting had been done for the day. The 65th lost one-third of their num ber. . . : r .;. ' S. 'G. .Norton 'says that a detach , ment ot 24 men of the 17th Pa. Cav., . under Ma. W. II. Spera, comprised the escort of Sheridan. This escort . was with the General throughout the fight at Cedar Creek. -; ', ,. A Prison BUI of Fare. : The ration for the earlier months ' consisted of about four ounces of meat - and a section of corn-bread four inches square by three inches thick. The bread,' of unbolted ' meal, was ' baked very hard to the depth of one- half loch, while tbe center was raw. The bread would often be as full of flies as a plum pudding is of fruit Al a large portion of our, number drew rations after dark, the' ingredi ents were not wasted. During the , latter .' months yams, rice, . or peas were issued in Ijeu of meat, and meal of grits instead of bread., We had no vessels to receive these, and the teaming rice was shoveled from the wagon-box into blankets; or a man ( would take off his trousers, knot one of the legs, and thus receive the por tion for hfk mess. The same method was ' used in the distribution of the - yams had peaae, except sometimes the. receptacle was a piece of undercloth ing. Century ' ' ; The Little Mfer. -'.' ' . It was in the winter of , 1864, while the federal army, was in camp near tha nit nf Richmond, that two fTnlnrt boys, whom I will call Gay and Shaft, (as their names have been forgotten) for a little sport, engaged in a tussle. Ghaft had a fit in his hand when the unexpected Otf clinched hfca. To t;A.Ur Lis condition for his scude, C" t:::;atheCfaintheftlf to get ill c Mi, for the time,: whereupon a C"': ty the name of. Hiaiiich ftrrrt:"m;j tzi l--zi up. ana aftsr Gay bxi concluded that Shaft wu the man that could scufie a little better than himself,, he quit. . Mr. Minnloh stepped forward and offered the fits to Shaft. But instead of tak ing it. Shaft remarked: ,.: 'I do not care for it; you may keep It" ' . ;.; - This he did, and soon after sent it home to his nlne-jrear-old son. , For six long weeks was this little boy try ing to play snatches of national airs which perhaps he , had ' heard some regimental corps play as they were off for the front. " - By the time the six weeks were up he had learned to play fairly well that familiar and popular air, 'Yankee Doodle.'' - " Upon Mr. Mlnnlch's return home at tbe close of the war; his little lad was able to show his father, upon tbe fife that he had sent him, the pluck of a Yankee youth who bad Be out to win. Among many pieces that he could master well was, "The Johnnie I left Behind Me," which filled Mr. Mlnnlch's heart with joy. The hoy has since grown up and at the last annual encampment of the r 2d Regt., Div. Ohio. 8. of V. held at Wauseon, O.. was elected by acclamation as col onel of the i said regiment, and is known as Col. Frank J. Minnloh. He will cut quite a figure In the coming State encampment, which is to be held in Toledo, next June. He will have this ' same identical fife "with him, which he always plays on all occasions of this kind. He has since the war played the requiem march at the burial of many an old veteran. ' V A riTe-to-Ooe Struggle. . I have been -reading some very in teresting literature brought out dur ing the late Confederate reunion at Chattanooga.' I An alleged statistical article appears, with the. purpose of showing that the relative strength of the two sides in our late struggle was between five and ten to( one in favor ot the federals. This ' is ..a decayed chestnut. ' I cannot see, in the light of common sense, how this immense disparity can be claimed. " " v ' lor instance, the greatest dispro portion was stated as at Spottsylvania and the Wilderness, where the writer places the number of federal force engaged at 150,000, and the confed erates at 45,000. Now, if he is cor fleet, this is much less than five to one. But did Gen. Grant have 150,000 men at these battles P : r At the seven days' fight before Rich mond the federals are given 100.000 men, the confederates 75,000. These figures are probably near being right, but tbe disparity is nowhere near five to one. ".' -.'' ; l- At the second battle of Manassas the force of the' federals is placed at 60,000; their opponents at 46,000. I thought this battle was fought by Gen. Pope , without the aid of McClellan's troops, in which case the rebels must have , decidedly outnumbered ; our troops. , : ' '., - ' ' ' According to this alleged statisti cian, our forces at the battle of Frank lin numbered 60,000. Did Gen. Soho field have even one-third ot this num ber engaged? In two battles Stone River and Chickamanga - a . preponderance in forces is actually given to the confed erates. But how does this carry out the five to-one textP ' . . One thing more In elucidation of history. In a eulogy of the rebel Gen. Forrest by his chief of staff,. Maj. D. C. Kelly, it is stated that he followed Col. Speight with greatly inferior forces, harassed him with incessant attacks day and night, until the fed eral troops finally demanded to be al lowed to surrender, which, when done, 1,700 men laid down their arms toSOO.

'; ." :" Mothers aud Daughter. ; : It all that mothers are to them came home to the perceptions of daughters at an earlier period, they would be more anxious than they generally seem to be to spare those mothers and prolong their- days, and save them from much of the exertion and anxiety that are likely to shorten their lives, and that It only from merely selfish reasons. .How many daughters are there who, if it lies between them to do it, do not let theirmothers rise in the morning and make the fire and prepare the breakfast; who, in the Interim be tween cooks, do not let the whole bur den of carw and the chief endeavor of work come upon the mother; who do not let the mother get up in the night and attend to the calls of sudden ill ness; who, if it is necessary to watch with the sick, do not hold themselves excused, and the duty to be a mater nal one; who do not feel it their privi lege to be ready for callers aud com- fiany while tbe mother is still in work ng dishabille; who are not in tbe habit ot taking the most comfortable chair; and who, in the matter of provision of toilet, do ' not think almost anything will do for mother, but they them selves muaj be fresh and fine and in the fashlonP How; many daughters are there who, when pleasure-taking comes in question, do not feel, even if perhaps unconsciously, that the mother has had her day and ought to be con tented, and they should be the ones to go and take the enjoyment? : . - It would seem as if the mere senti ment of self-preservation would teach daughters a better line of conduct. It is the mother making the central spot of the house usually that makes home possible. It is the mother from whom the greater part ot the happiness of the home proceeds. If she dies, the home disintegrates, or it is not un usual that another ,comes to take her place sometimes a foreign element before whom the old union and happi ness may possibly fly. To preserve this home and this happiness,; one would imagine, should be the first ef fort of the daughter, that she should, out of regard for her own comfort and gratification, as well as for that of others, seek every means to make life easy to the mother, to insure her life and length of days. Never again will any daughter have such a friend as this mother; no fond , adorer's eyes will ever follow ber with the same everyday love as this mother's eyes do. nor will any give her the sympathy she does. It is wild folly on the daughter's part that lets the mother waste her strength. Instead of seeking by every means possible- to save and increase it; for while a good mother is with her family they are entertain' ing an angel, whether unawares or not. Harper $ Bazar, Ber Flr Experience, . This is what Mrs. Gen. Grant says of her first dinner-giving: "Imagine my husband's inviting four or five of tho officers to dine with us at our first dinner! Of course he had to withdraw the invitation, for how did I know that Hannah under- stood cooking? He was amused at my real dismay. 'I thought everybody knew how to cook I do,' he said, "and many a savory mess I have helped to make at West Point. I have roasted apples. and sometimes even ventured on roast ing a fowl.' "When I Inquired when and how, he told me, . with boyish pleasure; The potatoes, beef, etc, we fellows brought from the , mess-hall (now Grant Hall) in our caps. The apples were usually the result of a foraging party to old Klngsley's garden.1.. " 'And the fowl, Ulysses, where'did they come from?' I asked.. " Oh, usually from Col. Delflold's coops.' . "At my expression of horror at this really dreadful admission, he said: Do not be alarmed; I was not adroit enough to be of these parties, but I did both help cook and eat those won derfut Buppers.' " "So of course he thought anyone could cook. , Hannah proved, to my great satisfaction, a household treas ure. . . :. i- ,: . Tbe officers were asked to come the next day, when I had much pleas ure, though I felt some responsibility in arranging the appointments of my . pretty table, seeing that all were prop erly placed, ' and remembering with loving pride the well-served table ot my father s house. . Well, the officers came, and to my smiling welcome they said: Then we can stay to-day, can we? Everything is right, is HP And Hannah really knows how to cook, does sber , "Only imagine, the lieutenant had told all these men that they could not come to dinner because Mrs. Grant was not sure that Hannah knew any thing about cooking, and would like to have a trial dinner first. How they all loved to tease me ever after when he would ask any of them to dine with us! They would timidly peep in at the door, and ask. 'Is it' all rightr or Shall we come next timer : ' ' y W A Kit,,, iMatag Tabled ; ' , Several year o there appeared In print a description of a tmtli UfcU ci castors, to be wheeled frci tls klU! en to the diniai room.

The food can be taken from the range, brought . from pantry and cellar, and placed upon the table be fore It is wheeled into the dining- room.

If one can wash dishes .without spat tering, a dripping-pan, with a towel folded and laid in the bottom, can be set on the end of the table, with tow els at band. Then let the dish-washer sit down with the pan on her lap and her feet on a footstool.

" ; v "' ' Enjoyment at Home. .'Don't shut up your house, lest the sun should fade your carpets, and your hearts, lest a merry laugh should shake down some df the musty old cob webs there. If you want to ruin your sons, . let them thlnlc that all mirth and social enjoyments must be left on the threshold without, - when they come home at night. When once a home Is regarded . as only a place to eat, drink and sleep in, the work is begun that ends in reckless degrada tion. Young people must have fun and relaxation somewhere; if they don't hare it at their own hearthstone It will be sought at other and perhaps at less profitable places. Therefore, let the fire burn brightly at night, and make the homestead delightful with all those ' little arts that parents so perfectly understand. Don't ' repress the buoyant spirit of your children; half an hour of merriment around the lamp and firelight ot a home blots out many a care and annoyance during the day . and the best safeguard they can take with them into the world is the unseen influence of a bright little domestic circle. ' Put home first and foremost, for there will come a time when the home circle will be broken, when you will "long for the touch of a vanished hand and the sound of voice (hat is still,"' and when your greatest pleasure will be In . remem bering that you did all in your power to put a song under every burden to make each, other happy, :J , i'!: : VOum. - ' ' Why will so many of our young peo plethe : girls especially persist in chewing gum in publla places, attract ing attention and making their natur ally pretty faces ugly In their contor tions?

'Ml THE CLUMSY RATTLE8N AKE. He Elsies Mack Ofteaer Taaa Es Ells Wats St '. ;. Werk. ; Rattlesnakes are more poisonous in print than in their native wilds. The southwestern plains abound in these . dingy reptiles and I had ample oppor- j tunlty to judge of their character and performances, both of whioh fall below report' t The rattlesnake has a short flat wide. bead. Besides the red and j forked tongue, of which he makes dis play when bullied, his mouth Is up- bolstered with two fangs which are In the , upper jaw and correspond in position to the eye-teeth of mankind, j tThese fangs in a serpent of common size are about tb roe-fifths of: an inch long and have a slight curve like a scimitar and hook inward. They are white in color, of the diameter of ft needle and hollow from root to point Their root or seat is in a' sao contain ing the poison, which Is loosened and flows through the tube-like fang as a result of the muscular exertion of striking. It does not flow but spurts and two tiny jets of poison Intended for the victim distill into the air every time the rattlesnake , strikes and misses. This last he does about four times out of five, for his snakeship is as clumsy and Inaccurate as a woman with a rook. 1 have seen one miss a full grown merino sheep three times in succession. In serpents as in alli gators the upper, not the lower, jaw Is the one that moves to open the mouth. The fangs working on a sort of hinge are closed like the blade of a knife when the mouth is closed and are presented for business by the action of throwing back the upper jaw. The mere act of opening the jaw always discloses the fangs without any separate effort on the part of the serpent and when the mouth is closed again two fleshy envelopes 'or scab bards cover them from doing or re ceiving harm. This' is necessary,' as a rattlesnake's poison is just as bad forlilmsetf as for anyone else. These fangs have .all the limber pliability ot the finest steel and can be bent or put In any posture by a little force, but will at once spring into shupe on being relieved. , .1 '.' As to the deadly character of his reptile-ship I can only say that I have seen numberless horses, steers and sheep which were bitten by rattlers, always in the nose and head, and never one died. They were sick from a day to a month and their heads would become swollen and the candi dates would mope about the prairie in a dejected way, but they came, around all right as a finale. I never knew a man to die, although I have known some few to get stung. Whisky la a copious way as an Internal, and a poultice of pounded onions and salt as sn outward application, were all that was needed. I have known some topers, who knew there was whisky In the wagons, to go about looking for the bite of a rattlesnake as eagerly as some anglers seek bass, just for the glorious drunk that was sequential to it Such persons, however, are not common. : ' Some few people like snakes as pets. They will remove a rattler's fangs by breaking them off with a silk handker chief, and so : make the gentleman harmless. .' To those who mar here after perform this feat as a primary step towards becoming intimate with the rattle snake, 1 wish to say a word of warning. These fangs are of a similar growth to the finger nails of humanity, and, when torn out readily replace themselves with a aew growth. Your pet will be ready to do business on the old lines in six weeks after you have pulled his teeth; so oware. Al Lewis, in K. C. Star. One of Wattersen's Stories. :.
