The softly blowing evening breeze
Came softly algbting through Uie trees;
All nature, silent as tbe grave,

The. 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.

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

. 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.

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

could master well was, "The Johnnie

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 : '

long the material will cost about one

carpenter for three dollars, if the legs
are plain. Turned legs will make the
table look better and also increase the i

a bed-room of their sitting-room, so
that the dining-room . must also serve

As soon as the table is wheeled from

If one can wash dishes .without spat

folded and laid in the bottom, can be
set on the end of the table, with tow

sit down with the pan on her lap
and her feet on a footstool. One can
not wash dishes as rapidly as on . a

when ' a woman . does - not care

"' ' 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

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
