THE VERMONT PHOENIX, BRATTLEBORO, FRIDAY, JANUARY 19, 1894.
MISCELLANY. StllllCUIlll .InoU-on. hntitherii Itrniliilict'iicr of the I'moi-lle CoiifVilri-Jitr Lender. One bright Sunday morning In the spring of 1801 1 wont down to the Virginia mill taiy Institute at Lexington to sec the cadet corn oil for lttchmond. As thoy took thoir battery of four gum, Jackson was In command. "lie seemed a new man while attending to the details of the march, his tone of voice being louder and his dark eye Hashing with an unwonted light. One of my classmates remarked: "The major seems to enjoy tills thing." The dormant martial spirit in his nature was then awak ening, and he seemed to "snun the battle from afar.'' When all things were ready for tho departure he requested one of the clergymen of the town to ask God's protection and blessing ere the march began. Our company of students from Wash ington college was assigned to Jack son's brigade, and we saw much of him as our general. On the field of Ma nassas, when our regiment, the Fourth Virginia Infantry, under a fearful Are, was supporting a line of artillery, Jackson rode calmly up and down our front, watching the progress of the battle. Now and then he would cry out "All's well!" I also heard him say, "To-night we will drive them across the I'otomac." A bullet gave him a flesh wound on his wrist: but bind ing his handkerchief around the bleeding member he continued his observations amid the storm of bullets and shells. His countenance was all aglow with ani mation, and no wonder llee pointed to him and gave him the sobriquet of "Stonewall." The tide of battle surged to and fro. Our line on the left was befnc pressed back, and then I heard Jackson's voice ring out above the rattle of musketry and the roar of cannon, "Prepare to use the bayonet." Next came the orders, "Forward!" "Charge!" The line of steel swept for ward; soon the field was won, and the name of Jackson was immortal. On the winter expedition to ltomney, in Kortheru Virginia, he showed the invinci ble will of the great Napoleon. Had roads, snow and ice cheeked not his march, but pressing on with a speed unequaled in the war, he surprised and drove the enemy across the I'otomac. Coining tip to a cais son whose liorp were unable to move il across a stretch of broken, icy road, lie dis mounted and, putting his shoulder to a wheel, some of bis stall doing likewise, the piece of artillery soon moved on. j On another occasion, hearing a dandy looking lieutenant, in charge of a detach ment sent to tear up some railroad, speak ing very roughly to the men engaged in the work, the general took a crowbar and pried away for a few minutes. Then, handing the tool to the military dude, he said: "That is the way to do it, sir. Suppose you try It." We were aumed at his strategy at dam No. G, on the Chesapeake and Ohio canal, in the fall of 1801. With his own brigade, a batter' of tour guns, a squadron of cav alry, and two pontoon boats, he was threat ening the canal at this point on the upper Potomac. The enemy, with a much larg er force, was watching his movements from the Maryland side. One day he marched his combined forces in a small cir cle for about eight hours, the onlv part of this curved line visible to the enemy being a distance of a quarter of a mile between two bodies of woodland. In this open space there could l seen, from the oppo site hills, infantry, cavalry, and artillery in an endless line, passing all day. In the evening the scene over the river was livelv. Couriers dashed hither and thither, tents -were struck, trains were moving, and troops were massing. The despatch to Washington was that Jackson was about to cross the iiver with .")0,000 men, and .march on the capital. One of our boys remarked, "Old Jack ought to be ashamed of himself to fool those fellows so." As a result the enemy kept at a respect ful distance, and he damaged the canal. On the morning after the battle of Cold Harbor, near Itichmond, some prisoners were standing near our company when . Jackson came galloping down the line. A federal soldier asked the cause of the cheering, and was told that Jackson was coming. In an excited manner he said, "For God's sake, gentlemen, stand back and let me see him." We gave him the opportunity, and as the great chieftain and his staff swept by, and the welkin rang with the cheer3 of his old brigade, the gal lant Federal, too, raised his cap. Whenever Jackson, now a division gen eral, passed along the lines, the cheers, like a mighty wave, would roll mile after mile, i tie enthusiasm of the men knew no bounds, as, on "Old Sorrel," with hat in hand, he would dash by. It was a com mon saying when cheering was heard, "It is either 'Old Jack,' or a rabbit;" as when the latter would attempt to break through the line on the march, the shouting of the troops would often paralyze the little ani mal with fright. The morning after the battle of Malvern Hill Jackson was pass ing the field hospital of his old brigade. A brave boy, mortally wounded, was lying by the roadside. Although his ear was growing dull to earthly sounds he caught the words, "Jackson is coming," and with all the strength of his dying body he arose on his elbow, waved his hand, and in feeble voice said, "Hurrah for Jackson!" It was his last cheer, for tho blood gush ing aucw from his breast, he fell back and it wa3 all over. Is it strange that such men, under such a leader, trod so often in the path of victory.'

The empress of Japan being that sweet est of all sweet creatures, a womanly wom anhas upon many occasions "openly ovinced her deep interest in the Wee Ones of Japan, giving freely to all institutions that oxlst to benefit them in any way, even practicing all sorts of touching little econ omies that she may be able to swell her contributions to certain charities that most interest her. The couduct of this ideal woman upon a certain sad occasion her devoted subjects are never weary of describing. Prince Iwakura, a fearless Japanese leader in the momentous days of the crisis from which the lovely archipelago is still trembling in its subsidence to what seems assured sta ollity lay dying in his yashiki. The em press announced her intention of paying Iwakura a visit In person. The poor prince, weak, and, as I have said, about to die, was thrown into a dangerous state of ex citement upon receiving the news, but he managed to borrow from some hidden ner vous force sufficient strength to grasp his writing-box and brushes and to paint her an urgent but most respectful request not to think of coming to him. He forced up on her as excuse for declining so great an honor the fact of his rapidly approaching death, and his consequent inability to ac knowledge her visit with even a sixteenth part of the homage it demanded. He begged her to deign to kindly consider how ill he must be when it remained an Impossibility to throw off the malady even for her enter tainment. In reply, winged with speed, came a dear little missive whose Import was as follows : "I come not as your empress, but as the daughter of your fond well-wisher and co- aujuior, ana as your own anxious friend.' ijiiior. ana as your own anxious friend." empress arrived, and remained beside her grateful subject until his final summons. Some years ago, when the imperial palace was burned, the unselfish empress, amid all the excitement and discomfort she was for the nonce called tiKn to endure In a hasty flight toa coinfoitlessold yashiki, thinking first of her subjecs' natural concern for her comfort, sat down and wrote them a dainty little rhyme, which proclaimed as erroneous the report that she had changed her residence, it coyly asserted that her home had always been" in the hearts of her people, and that she sincerely hoped that neither by flame nor by cold could she be driven from that dear abode. llnrn r'n Hutu r. Tlic I'nuprr Moiifipnll1 It happened In a tiny Yorkshire village a peaceful, respectable spot, where folks found life a bit slow. One day, however, a new curate arrived, and that woke things up considerably. He was a nice young man, and, having a large private income of his own, was altogether a most desirable ' catch. Every unmarried female In the place went for him with one accord. Hut orditiarj feminine blandishments appeared to have no effect upon him. He was a se riously inclined young man, and once, in the course of a casual conversation upon the subject of love, he was heard to say that he himself should never be attracted by mere beauty and charm. What would appeal to him, he said, would be a woman's goodness her charity and kindliness to the poor. Well, that set the petticoats all think ing. They saw that in studying fashion plates and practicing expressions they had been going upon the wrong tack. The card for them to plav was "the poor." Hut here a serious difficulty arose. There was only one poor person in the whole palish. a cantankerous old fellow who lived in a tumble-down cottage at the back of the church, and fifteen able-bodied women ! (eleven girls, three old maid and a wid- 1 off) wanted to be good to him. Miss Siiu uioiuU, one of the old maids, got hold of ' him first, and commenced feeding him ' twice a day with beef-tea: and then the j widow boarded him with port wine and ' oysters, hater in the week others of the 1 party drifted in upon hlin, and wanted to cram him with jelly and chickens. The old man couldn't understand it. He was accustomed to a small sack of coals now and then, accompanied by a long lecture on his sins, and an occasional bottle of dandelion tea. This sudden spurt on the part of Providence puzzled him. He said nothing, however, but contrived to take in as much of everything as he could hold. At the end of a month he was too fat to I get through his own back-door. 1 a step forward rather than an occasion for The competition among the women-folk j regret or fear. It is hoped that dairymen grew keener every day, and at last the old will take no hasty or unwise action in conse man began to give himself airs, and to ouence of the discovery of this disease in make the place hard for them. He made them clean his cottage out, and cook his meals, and when he was tired of having them about the house, be set them to work in the garden. They grumbled a good deal; and there was a talk at one time of a sort of a strike, but what could they do-.' He was the only pauper for miles round, ! and knew It. He had the monopoly, and, i like all monopolists, he abused his position. He made them run errands. He sent them out to buy his "baccy," at their own ex pense. On one occasion he sent Miss Sim- monds out with a jug to get his supper 1 beer. She indignantly refused at tirst, but he told her that If she gave him any of her stuck-up airs out she would go and never come into his house again. If she wouldn't do it, there were plenty of others who i would. She knew it and went. They have been In the habit of reading to him good books with an elevating ten dency. Hut now he put his foot down upon that sort of thing. He said he didn't want Sunday-school rubbish at his time of life. What he liked was something spicy. And he made them read him French novels and seafaring tales containing realistic lan guage. And they didn't have to skip anything either, or he'd know the rea son why. He said he liked music, so a few of them clubbed together and bought him a harmonium. Their idea was that they would sing hymns and play high-class melodies, but it wasn't his. His idea was "Keeping up the old girl's birthday" and v .1, nw,,c 1 that's what thev ! thats what thej sue wniKeil the other and skirt dance, and sang. To what lengths his tyranny would have gone it is diffcult to say, had not an event happened that brought his power to a pre mature collapse. This was the curate's sudden aud somewhat unexpected mar riage with a very beautiful burlesque act ress who had lately been performing in a neighboring town. " He gave up the church on his engagement, in consequence of his fiancee's objection to becoming a minis ter's wife. She said she should never "tumble to" the district visiting. With the curate's wedding the old pauper's brief career of prosperity ended. They packed him off to the workhouse after that, and made him break stones. "A'orc JVofr'' ' Jtrnme K. Jerome.

"Is Mr. 1' in?" said the gentleman. I "He's just gone out, sir." ! "Is Mrs. I' at home-.'" I "N'o sir; she went out with master." I "Dear me, how unfortunate. I wanted ' particularly to see one of them. Can I leave a note?" "Oh, yes, sir, Copie in, please," replied the girl, ushering the visitor into the din iug-room. But instead of leaving him alone, she rang for another servant, whom she desired to briug writing materials. The gentleman wrote his note, inclosed in an envelope, addressed It and left it on the table. This being done he departed with a pro fusion of thanks to the maid, who escorted him to the door. On returning home Mr. P found the note awaiting him. It ran thus : "Tour servant is no fool!" This compliment was fully justified by a paragraph in the next day's paper, giving an account of the plunder of a neighboring mauslon by a slmlllar visitor. According to a local paper a farmer liv ing in Fulton county, X. y., helped steal his own hog the other night. He was awakened from sleep In the middle of the uight, and asked hy two men to assist thcra in loading a hog which had tumbled out of the crate in their wagon. He willingly gave thqm a helping hand, and then re turned to quiet slumbers. The next morn- 1 iug lie Hem 10 leeu ins porker, but there upon him that he had hclned i7w lTu was no porner to teed.

The use of the new tuberculin test (by Inoculation with a prepared lymph) lias re vealed the presence of tuberculosis in the herd of cows at the state experiment sta tion farm at llurltligton, i.nd three of the animals a Holstelu, a Jersey, and a grade Ayrshire wore killed last Friday. The state cattle commissioners and other offi cials and many interested dairymen were present at the post mortem examination. In two of the animals the disease was far advanced and was perfectly evident, even to those not posted on Its symptoms. In these cases the tuberculosis adhered to the ribs, lungs and udders. In the other cow presence of the disease was only detected In the lymphatics. Prof. Hills says that no butcher could perceive the disease In such a caso and tl e beef would have been sold anywhere as stmnd, healthy meat. The carcasses of the cattle were removed to a wood lot about two miles from the city and there burned. Thirteen other members of the herd are Infected and will be killed. The remaining eight cows are believed to be sound. Prof. Hills regards the condition of this herd as emphasizing the need of cattle inspectors In this state such as are appointed in Massachusetts and New York, to prevent the sale and use of beef, milk and butter made from In fected cows. Ittlllrtlll frmtl the Cattle Cnmiillaaloners. I'he board of cattle commissioners have i issued a bulletin on the subject, in which they say It Is impossible to determine the source of the disease, aiu it Is believed to have existed in the herd unsuspected for some time. The animals were apparently in perfect health and gave no outward sign of the ailment. The managers of the sta tion are commended for their prompt ac tion. There is no reason to suppose that the disease is widespread in the state, and dairymen are cautioned against undue alarm. Careful investigation leads to the conclusion that the disease has existed for a long time among the cattle in all por 1 tlotis of the country, and other states have I had to meet and deal witli it in the past. There is no reason to suppose that tuber culosis is more prevalent today than for years past, only we have at this time, I through the discovery of the artion of tu ' berculln on infected animals, a means of i detecting this disease, anil, consequently, a means of purifving our herds, which is our state, but that they will surround their animals with the best conditions of health possible and watch carefully any indica tion of the disease In their limb, and take means to free themselves from it when once discovered.

Live Pruriently, iintl Don't Scnre Your self to Heath nlintit the rli, or Any thing ISlse. i From the Philadelphia Ledger While the influenza is epidemic It be hooves every one to protect his health against It, lest he should bo one of tho un fortunates to contract the disease ot, still more unfortunately, be unable, If attacked, to resist its assault on his bodily strength. The laws of hygiene always and at all times should be obeyed, but especially so when a dangerous and insidious disease is known to be prevalent In a community. Inlluenza threatens death chiefly by the profound depression which It causes in all the vital forces. If these are already at a low ebi, either through the effect of dis ease or through neglect of the ordinary rules of health, the danger of a fatal termi nation is greatly increased. Victims of consumption and heart disease are always cruelly handled when they contract influ enza ailll the SattinUtrilo nf elltTnrnra frn other chronic diseases. Hut the man who, though free from constitutional disease of any kind, has led an irregular life, has neg lected or abused his digestion, who has al lowed business worries or anxiety to harass him unduly, is not less, but more, In peril than his seemingly weaker brother. These are the men in whom pneumonia, often rapidly fatal, develops; who collapse with out warning or whose mental power weak ness or is destroyed after an attack of the gup. , It is not always possible, especially in I these times of business depression, to" re lease the mind altogether from strain, but It is always possible to relieve the strain by seeking healthful amusements and di version, or by resolutely leaving business behind when evening comes, and forcing one's self to other thoughts and duties than those which have engrossed the day time. The stomach should never be neg- i lected, but especially now, when it mav, 1 at any time, be called upon to sustain a"n : extra strain, healthful, nutritious food, taken at regular intervals and in sufficient I but not too great quantity, should bo made I a regular rule of life. Out-door exercise is almost equally Important, but especially . iui uiose occupation is conimillg.

At the first sign of an attack of the grip the patient should take to his bed and send for a physician. Influenza is a mighty agent for the extin guishment of the unfit, and nature looks on all who violate the laws of health as unlit to live, regardless of the great value which they, or others, or the world at large, may place upon their lives.
