Stuart's oldness in what followed may have en a desire to hare a laugh at the pense of his father-in-law. He se cted for tbe expedition 1,200 picked pen, among them a large detachment bta own regiment, the First Vir ata cavalry, under Colonel Fitzhugh ee. Jack Mosby, who afterward be fiine noted as a partisan leader, was le of that band, a private soldier. Hi# column was composed of the lath Virginia, commanded by Colo W. H.

Gathering his scattered troops, Koyall made a stand at a crossroads. Fitzhugh Lee to the Front. General Stuart at once ordered Colo nel W. II. F. Lee, commanding the regiment leading the column, to throw forward a squadron to meet the en emy. Colonel Lee directed Captaiu Swann, chief of the leading squadron Of his regiment, to charge with the saber. Swann moved off at a trot, and, turning a corner of Ihe read, saw the enemy's squadron about -00 yards iu front of him. The order to charge was given, and the men dashed forward in tine style. The onset was so sudden that the Federals broke and scattered 111 confusion. Captain Latane. commanding a squadron of the Ninth Virginia, was directed to move forward trail cleat the road. lie moved up the lii at a trot and when in sight of the enemy in the road gave the command to charge, and with a yell the men rushed for ward. At the top of the hill, simulta neously with Lataue's order to charge, a company of Federal cavalry deploy ed as skirmishers in the woods on the right of the road were stampeded and rushed back into the woods to make pood their retreat to their friends. The head of Latane's squadron, I hen just fairly up the hill, was in the line of their retreat and was separated from the rest of the squadron, cut off by the rush of the Federals and borne along with them up the road toward the enemy. Duel to the Death on Horseback. in column of fours with drawn sa bers the cavaliers dashed ahead. Cap tain Latane rode in front of tbe first company. Royall's men formed on both sides of the road and across it. They used their revolvers, firing vol leys, but at a range which was only a waste of bullets. Captain Latane rushed at Captain Ro.vall with bis sa ber, and these two leaders fought a duel in the middle of the road, saber against pistol. Royall was slashed sev eral times, yet be finally shot Latane dead. Latane's followers attacked Royall, but he escaped with his life. The Federal regulars at once rallied. Stuart, with Fltz Lee's whole com mand, charged and routed them twice, finally been driving them beyond their main camp. General Lee's instructions bad carried out, for Stuart knew that only a cavalry mask formed the right of M( Ciellau's army. Instead of turn ing lii.ek to report, however, Stuart se lected three of the ablest guides for that region, among them .lack Mosby, "I'd Started upon hi- ruinous ,-jtie around the Army of the Potomac.

The raiders passed toward the rear of the Federal army and crossed the railroad wh.eh carried its supplies to tiie tront. ,\ station ami a moving train were attaiked. Hut the grand depot ol supplies at White House land lug. on the ramunkey river, only four miles from the trak of the raiders, was not touched. There were only (100 soldiers guard ing the stiies. half as many as rode wish Stuart. Had he destroyed the depot the siege against Richmond would have come to disaster, nations for McClellan's army for weeks ahead were piled up at the White House at the mercy of ihe raiders' torch. Rut Stuart knew that his enemies were alert and that he must not bring on a battle, so he galloped off into uuoccu pied country toward the James, mak ing a complete circuit of the Federal position. A Battle Against Orders. Throughout the war there was strong desire in the north to capture or punish the city of Charleston, which was looked upon as the cradle of the Ce-Moderncy, and also to close its har bor to blockade runners. The lowlands on ,lames island that stretch out ten or twelve miles south of the harbor are cut by many winding rivers and in lets and broken frequently by swamps. At a point a little more than four miles south of the city lay the little village of Secessionville, which was used as a summer resort by a few planters. It stood on elevated ground and bordered on a deep creelt on the one side and shallow one on the other. Across the neck of land be tween the two, on June 10, 18112, stood a newly built earthwork about 200 yards long, known as Battery Lamar, after ils commander. Colonel T. C. Lamar. There were similar works at other points in the region between Se cessionville and the southern shore ot the harbor. On the shore stood old Fort Johnson It was on a point opposite Fort Sumter and in range id' I lie channel. This work General David Hunter, who com manded the Federal department the south, planned to attack early in June, lie had landed troops two miles south of Secessionville lor this purpose. In ex peetation of receiving additional troops he left Secossionvilie on June 11 to re turn to his headquarters at Port Royal after giving orders that Fort Johnson should not be attacked until the prom ised re-enfor-cements came up. Desperate Night Attack. General U. W. Benhani command)'d the troops at Secessionville, having for subordinates General H. G. Wright. General J. J. Stevens and Colonel Wil liams. P.enham called a council of war tbe night of June 15 and gave orders that Stevens' division should attae': Battery Lamar at daylight the 17th. Wright, Stevens and Williams protest ed, but Benham was linn, and at 4 a. ni. Stevens' men pushed forward, cap tured the Confederate picket and ap proached the Confederate works through an open field. But the enemy were not surprised, and a heavy tire of musketry and artillery was open ed upon them almost from the first It was found that the front of 200 yards presented by the works was too narrow for the proper deployment of much more than a regiment, and the assailants suffered accordingly. There was also a line of abatis to be broken through, and a deep ditch, and yet a portion of the assaulting forces actu ally reached the parapet- Tbe Eighth Michigan, which was in the advance, lost ib2 men out of ri.'i-l, including twelve of its twenty two officers. Colonel William M. Kenton, who commanded this regiment, stated in his report: "The order not to fire, but use the bayonet, was obeyed, and Hit advance companies reached the para pet of works at the angle on our right and front, engaging the enemy at the point of the bayonet Dtping our ad vance tbe enemy opened upon our lines an exceedingly destructive fire of grape, canister and musketry, and yet the regiment pushed on as veterans, divided only to the right and left by a sweeping turrent from the enemy's main gun in front The enemy's tire proved so galling and destructive that our men on the parapet were obliged lo retire under its cover. The field was furrowed across with cotton ridges, and many of the men lay there, load Ing and firing as deliberately as though on their bunting grounds at home." Even had the.v been able to carry the work they could not have held it long. for its whole interior was commanded by elaborate ritie pits in the rear. He sides, the Confederates were promptly re-enforced When it became evident that no success was possible General Stevens withdrew his command to his original camp. The Federal loss in tbis action was G83 men out of about 3,500 actually engaged. The Confed erates. who were commanded by (Jen eral N. G. Evans, lost about 200 in all 1 The Confederates believed that Ben ham might have succeeded had bin troops been more tenacious. Benliam himself tried to put the blame on his generals, saying that they did not obej his orders. However, General Huutei promptly sent his chief of staff, Colo nel Charles G. Balpine, to the scene and Benhaui was removed from com mand. He was also ordered to report to Hunter at I'ort Royal "under ar rest" for disobedience of orders.

Angell tells in Ills reminiscences the following enjoyable stor.v of tils college (lavs at Brown liul rersily muter tliu presidency of Dr. I Way In nil: The doctor's son, (Ionian Lincola Wayliuut, one of my classmates, inher ited from his father a very keen wit The passages between fattier nnil SOB were often entertaining to the class. One day, when we were considering & chapter in I lie father's textbook oa moral philosophy, Lincolu rose witliim expression of great solemnity and re spect and said: "Kir, 1 would like to propound a question." "Well, sir, what Is it?" was the re- pi.v. "Well, sir," said the son, "In the learned authors work which we are now perusing I observe the following remark," and then he quoted. The class saw that fun was nt hand mill began to laugh. "Well, what of itV" asked tlie father, with a merry twinkle in his eye. "Why," continued the son. "in an other work of the same learned author, entitled 'On the Limitation of Human Kesponsibility,' I titid the following passage." He quoted again. Clearly the tw® passages were irreconcilable. The boy» were delighted to see that tho doctor was in a trap and broke into loud laughter. "Well, what of It?" nsked the doctor, and his eyes twinkled still more mer rily. "Why," said Ihe son, with tho ut most gravity, "it has occurred to m« that I should like to know how til* learned author reconciles the two state ments." "Oh," said the father, "that Is sim ple enough. It only shows that sine* lie wrote the tirst book tho learned au thor has learned something." BOUGHT HOUSES ON FIRE. Queer Trade That Enriched Cato and Crassus In Ancient Rome, One of tho strangest businesses Im ancient Rome is mentioned by Juvenal in his "Satires," and we hear of it ills® from historians. It consisted of buy ing houses on lire. The speculator hurried to the scene attended by slaves carrying bags ol money and others carrying tools. Judged the chances of salvage and mado a bid to the distracted houso owners, who were glad to accept any thing as a rule. The bargain struck In all haste this earliest of tire assurers set his slaves to work and secured what he could. Sometimes even he put out the flames and so mado a coup. It was a business for capitalists, but the poorest who speculated In a small way could hardly lose if he had pres ence of mind enough to grasp th«i chances. Thus Cato the elder and, above all. Crassus laid the foundations of their wealth. Tho latter had a passion for such gambling. lie gradually collected a force of carpenters, masons and such artificers slaves, of course which reached 500 men. Not only did he buy houses oil tire, but also, enlarging upon the common practice, he made a bid for those adjoining which stood in dan ger. Ills proposals wero commonly welcome, so helpless wero the people and so great the peril. IJy this mean# Crassus became tho greatest owner of bouse property in Rome. Rudest Man of Hi* Age. John Hunter, the famous British sur geon, anatomist, physiologist and med ical writer, who died in 1793, was one of tho rudest men of his age. He re turned home late one evening from his round of professional calls and found his wife entertaining a few friend*. Grimly he walked into the center of the room, stopped and looked around. "I knew nothing of tills kick up," he said, "and 1 ought to have been Ill formed. As I have returned home for the purpose of studying. I present company will retire They retired. hope th* at once." Scotch Rivalry. Glasgow and Kdinburgli are, In the "popular" mind, regarded as rivals eternally criticising each other— Glas gow's sneering al Edinburgh's "gen teel pride" and Kdinburgli sneering at Glasgow's "commercial taint" and her smoky, sunless atmosphere. I'rinces street is regarded by many traveled people as the IInest street in the world, but it was a Glasgow man who called! it "only hour a street," because the buildings are all on one side. Athenaeum. -London Fools the Snakes. The Bengal grosbeak builds a nest shaped like a bottle and always so-j lects for Its support a long, lithe limb overhanging a stream of water. The entrance Is beneath, and, from the sit uation and peculiar shape, it Is abso lutely Impossible for a snake to gain admission lo the nest. One naturaiiat records seeing fourteen attempts on the part of serpents to get at the nest, but the hungry snakes always fell off Into the water.
