A Battery In Hot Action-
DESCRIPTION OK A BATTLEFIELD SCENE.
NOT AS .HISTORIANS TELL OF, IT,
BUT AS KK1I1TINO MEN
KNOWN IT TO BE.
Ono who has fouaht on manv a
battlo-fiold writes tho following thrill
ins description of tho work of a bat
tery of six guns:
JJid you overy bco a battery laico po
It hasn't tho thrill of a cavalry
charge, nor the grimncss of a lino of
bayonets moving slowly and determin
edly on, but there U a peculiar exuito
mcnt about it that makes old veterans
rise in their saddles and cheer.
Wu have, been fighting at the odgo
of the wood-!. Kyery oartridgo box
has been emptied once or more, and
ono-fourlh of ,ho . .brigade has melted
away in dead and wounded and miss
ing. Not a cheer is hoard in tho
whole Oriando. Wo know that wo aro
being driven foot by foot, and that
whon wo break onco more the lino will
go to pieces and tho, enemy will pour
through The gap.
Hero comes help!
Down the crowded highway gallops
a battery, withdrawn from somo other
position to savo ours. The field fence
is scattered, .whilo .you could count
thirty, and tho guns rushed for the
hills behind us. Uix horses to a piece
three riders to each gun. Over dry
ditches where a iarnier would not
drive a wagon, through clumps of
bushes, over logs a foot thick, overy
horse on tho gallop, every rider lash
mg bij team and yelling the sight
behind us making us forget tho foo in
front. Tho guns jump two feet high
as the heavy wheels suiko rook or log
but not a, horso slackens his pace, not
8 cannoneer loses his seat. Six cutis.
six caissons, sixty horses, eighty mn,
race for the brow of the hill as it ho
who Bhould reach it first would bo
A moment ago tho battery
was a confused mob. Wo look again
and tho six guns ore in position, the
detached horses hutrying away, the
ammunition chests open, and along our
lino runs the command:
"Give them ono more volley and
fall back to Bupport tho guns." Wo
havo scarcoly oboyed when boom!
booinl openB the battery, and jets of
fire jump down and scoroh tho green
trees under which wo fought and des
paired. Tho shattered old brigado has si
chance to oratho for tho first timo in
three hours as we form a line and lie
down. What grim, cool fellows thosn
cannoneers nro. Everv man is a per
fect machine. Bullets splash dust in
their faoes, but they do not wince,
bullets sing over and around; they d
not dodge. There goes ono to the
earth, shot through the head as he
sponged his gun. That maohinery
loses just ono beat, missis just ono cog
in tho wheels and then works away
again as bafore.
Every gun is using short fuso shell.
The ground shakes and trembles, the
roar shuts out all sounds from a line
three miles long, and tho shells go
shrieking into the swamp to cut trees
short off, to mow great gaps in tho
bushes, hunt out and shatter and
mangle men until their corpses oannot
be recognized as human. You would
think a tornado was bowline throucrh
the forest, followed by billows of fire,
and yet men livethroughtt ayel press
torward to capture the battery. Wo
o n hear tbeir shouts as tbev form tho
Now the shells aro changed for grape
and cannister, and guns are fired so
fast that all reports blend into one
mighty roar. The shriek of a shell is
tho wickedest sound in tho war, but
nothing makes flesh crawl like the
demoniacal singing, purring, whistling
grape shot, and the serpect-liko biss of
Men's legs and hoads aro torn from
bodies and bodies cut in two. A ro-ind
shot or shell takes two men out of the
rank as it crashes through. Grape and
canister mow a swath and pile tho
dead on top of eaoh other.
Through the sm'iko we boo a swarm of
men. It is not a battlo Hne,hut a mob
of men desperate enough to batho thoir
bayonets in tho flame of tho guns.
Tho guns leap from the ground, almost,
as thny aro depressed on the foe, and
shrieks and screams and shouts blend
into one awful and steady cry. Twen
ty men out of the battery iiro down,
aud ilia firing is iuteirupted. Tno foe
accept it as a sign of wavering and
como rushing on. They are not ton
feet away when tho guns give them
ihH last shot. That dischargo pioks
living men off their feet and throws
them into tho swamp, a blackened,

a chance. Givo them a good start,
aud let them have all the profit, and
see if they don't beat you .making
money. Profit in Poultry, says Jas.
Rankin, iu the Homestead: I have 1G
cows in my barn; neighbors call them
good ones. . iho milk is sold in tno
neighboring village at remunerative
prices. It requires tho labor oi two
men and one team, to milk, care lor
those cows aud deliver the milk.
I havo threo hundred and fifty Pul
lets in my yard. And with but a little
of tho labor and capital employed,
those Pullets last winter made more
than double tho clear money ray cows
did. Toko another instance: Two
young met are running a Poultry and
Dairy farm conjointly. The ono is
au invalid and keeps one thousand
lions. The care of wlnoh occupies
about one half of his time. Tho other
keeps thirty cows, from which ho
makes butter of so good a quality, that
it readily commands from 8 to 10
ceuts mora than staudard prici. This
man raises tho usual farm crops, reads
the papers carefully, knows something
about labor and its applications, and
runs his gang of 4 or 5 men with an
oyo to business. Yet tho invalid
brother, with liss than one tentn ot
the labor and capital employod clears
double the money from his 1.000 ho. is.
than his brother does from tho whole
farm. Geo. A. Preston, of Buigbarap-
tou N. Y. eays: Tho 1st and 2nd year
ho kept poultry that he sold fods and
eggs to tho amount ol !j2,00(J. lio
savs after ho counted over the fignres
twice to bo suro that ho was oorreoi,
ho put on his bat and walked out to
the hen house, stuok his bands down
nto his pookets and whistled "Hail
Columbia" because his enterprise was
a success. And he sayx his salo-t havo
been gradually increasing and the first
eleven months of 1887 his bouks show
ed the vast amount of sixty-ono hun
drod dollars. Ho says he had lots of
fun in tho business and his friends
made lots of fun of it. Thoy called
him the hen man, and young feather
legs. Some people say Oh! tho cluck
eti business is good enough for the
bovs. but we men upoi whom rests
tho fate of the nation, must sit around
tho grocery, talk politics, and spit ou

cattle dealors who boast of making 50

it is a poor manager who can not

Millville that there is danger of over
stocking tho raarkot. Well my friend
just let me ask you, if there is danger
of overstocking tho market, why w it
necessary for us to import m manv
eggs as wo do to supply tho demand!
Why is v that wo buy three mill
ion dollars worth oi eggs from
Germany annually. And why is it
that Uauada cackled over sendinc us
three million dozen eggs last year. I
can tell you it is because tho American
hen has never produced enough eggs
to supply tho demand, aud until she
does you need not worry about the
market. I wish to maku one point
clear. Too many men pet one kind of
stock aud abuse another. You should
mako this n rule, if you havo too much
stock, or moro than you can take oaro

lhal many may profit from it. In the
first place let mo ask, how many know
what an egu is composed ot. It seems
nooessary to kuow this beforo we oan

an egg obemioally speaking is com
posed of or consists chiefly of carbon
ate of lime and a very small part of
phosphate of lime. Tho whito is
composed of eighty parts of water fif
teen and one half parts ot albumen and
four nud ono hall parts mucus. The
yolk consists of water, oil, albumen

Elon G. Billings, of this city, is creat

Miss Billings is a tall slim branetto,

fact that until rcceutly very lew nave

one of her "spirit" performances.
Tho young lady takes her seat at
tho piano, and, after a fow norycua
movements of her head, passes inti au
unconscious, or, as sho says, tranco

sings with great easo aud jskiII.
she has no knowl'xigo ot musio

taught her upon tho piano, and even
hero her skill is by no means aoovo

of age, yot her playing while in the

Sho also plays in a masterly manner
while under the power of tho "spirits;"
upon the guitar, flute, cornet, violin
and harp, although bIio has never re
ceived instruction on any of them.
She says she ib controlled and di

scholar who has ocen dead several cen

Mrs. Utilities told a correspondent
that about nine years ago the family

by spirits. Ono night they were call

piniuaiisis when iiUla went into tno
itting room and began playing on the
piano, the room was entirely aaric.
Thoy heard her playing familiar songs,
but after a time the music was of such
an oid- r and so strange that they went
m and lighted tho gas to soe who was
playing. She says that her daughter
sat there with her hair hanging over
her eyes playing tike mad. Sho ran
to thu piano and shook Lula, who
gave a scream and fainting fell to tho
floor. From that time she has contin

Airs. Billings says that when Emma
Abbot was stopping here sho sat in
tho window of tho hotel and listened
in amazement to Lulu's singing. She

Mrs. iiillincs says her daughter

The Prohibition Amendment.
Advices from Harrisburg leave little
room for doubt that both branches of
the Legislature will again adopt tho
Prohibition amendment to tho Consti
tution, and provide for its submission
to a voto of tho people at a sptuial
election to be held in the caily part ot
In order to submit the Prohibition
amendment to the peoplo this year, it
will bo necessary lor both brandies of
tho Legislature to again pass tho pro
posed amendment without any change
whatever, and to d -claro by law when
it shall bo admitted to tho people. Tho
text of tho nmendiu ut must bo adver
tised iu full in every county of the
Stato for throe months prior to the
election; and it may bo submitted to
the people either at a special election
in May or Junc.or say in September or
Uctobei alter harvest time, or at tho
regular November election, as the Le
gislature shall decide.
Xhu special friouds of tho Pro
hibition amendment are importunate
in tho domand for a special election to
deo do tho issue, nud their wishes aro
likely to prevail. They argue that
oven at an unimportant ceneral elec
tion there would be morn or less politi
cal entanglements, and thoy want an
election at which ttio people will hayo
no other question to consider or act
upon than that of Prohibition. A
majority of the votes cast at suoh elec
tion will adopt or n ject the proposed
rroiiiMiiuui amendment. If adopttd,
an extra session of tho Legislature
would bo a necessity to enact laws for
the enforcement of the new Constitu
tional provision. If rejected, no now
Prohibition amondineut, or any other
amondment, could be proposed for hvo
iho proposed amendment is a radi
cal prohibitory measure. It absolutely
prohibits tho manufacture or sale o'f
all intoxicating liquors as a boverage,
wnion uioludi a beer and wines of all
grades, and directs tho Legislature to
provide by law for the punishment of
thoso who shall disregard its mandate.
If adopted by the peoplo, all mannfao

liquors, beer or wines as a beverage,
would summarily oeaso upon tho offi
