Tlie following short story will pcrhnpn
bolter llliiflrftio my meaning : In tho
fall of 18 I was stationed at a wot
cm post garrisoned by cavalry and in
fantry. At tho liino t was acting post
sorgoant major, and my tlutloi requir
ed mo to verify tho descriptive and
transfer rolls of every recruit forword
cd to' our camp. In this way I beenma
personally acquainted with ovory man
in tho pott and his anteoedoats. I had
been somo eight months in tho per
formance of this duty when a chap,
whoso real namo I shall not montlon,
but who was at oncn nicknamed by the
soldiers "Calamity," arrived from tho
West Point cavalry dctachmont and
was assigned to duty with troop of
Calamity was a modest appearing
young fellow, whb" ha'd'evidohtly Been
better days, and who to my mind had
unmistakably missod his vocation in
becoming a soldior. Tho first sergeant
of K troop was a deserter from a Prus
sian .Uhlan regiment, and among tho
soldiers of "ouin'' wss known aSi"Lim
burger." Ho was a fino appealing
man and a falily well drilled soldier.
Owing, howovor, to his overbearing
manner to enlisted men generally, he
was regarded as a downright nuisanco
in tho damp. No less than sixty' men
had deserted from his troop alone dur
ing tho yoar,- and su?l w.w hjs reputa
tion as a tyrant rl tbo.St Louis depot

Wero to join his command jumped

of tho Btopping places on their way
TIED UP UYTHK TltUMBS.
Calamity had been just; two days in
camp when ho incurred the ill will qf
Limbdrger by .objecting to. clean out
the "lattor's spittoon. Thoro is no, law
or regulation 'in tho array .sa'nctibninii
tbo employment as, a Bervaht df any
enlisted man save in tho ease of an of
ficer, tho latter usually paying for such
services. A rorj-comraissioried officer
under wo circumstances is allowed' a
Tbo sergeant 'was iurlous over the
refusal of Calamity to obey his unlaw
ful order1, .and without, furtner ado di
rected that Calamity bb tied up by tliq
thumbs. In thoso days tho first
sergeant and the aergcapta qf tbo
guard oojijd dq prptty mucbi toov
pleased wjth privates .who disobdyed
their orders oif who were in any way
insubordinate. SabK punishments as
tying np by tho tbnrabe, buckihg and
gagging, carrying and standing on a
barrel were then recogmzod in tbo
army and infliotod by subalterns at
Thore is no'torturo evor invented by
man, lAat can. surpass injCruelty, t,hat of
suspension by, tho thumbs. Calamity,
after being soiled by a corporal, was
ordered to mount a1 box; his' thumbs
were crossed and Bccuroly lasbod wh
a stout cord. The, end of. tho latter
was then thrown over a beam and ho
was hoisted up until his body rested
upon his tip toes. The ropo being
now Bocurea to a ring bolt in tho wall
the box was kicked from beneath the
poor wretch and his form dangled in
mid air slowly revolving with tho
twist of the.' rope,- .his cntiro weight
resting on his thumbs. ( For some
moments Calamity remaino'd perfectly
quiet when suddenly he gavo vent to
a' most despairing, yell. His unearthly
Bhrieks could now bo plainly hoard at
tho distance of a mile..
Of a sudden the shrieks became
fainter, and when tho .sergeant of tho
guard and officer of thoi day reached
tho guard house it was found that tho
prisoner had swooned. The body was
immediately cut down, the uirgeon
hurriedly sent for and the man order
ed to the hospital. Not ono word of
disapproval of Limburger's action in
this affair was uttered by his troop
commander, who dismissed tho matter
when reported to him by savagely re
marking that lit would bo a fino, lessdn
in discipline for tbo beggar, meaning
THE WORM TURNS.,
After his recovery he mado a bravo
effort to spruce up and soon became a
fairly expert horseman nnd quite pro
ficient in drill. Ho admitted to , mo
that ho really liked soldering, and if
permitted meant to thereafter make
tho army his home. In f.hts J enoour

the latter was too pig headed to under

ment was ordered into tho field against
Indians. Tho night before leayiug
camp every man was supplied with a
revolver and thirty rounds of cartrid
ges. The company- proporty was hast
ily' paokod in boxes and every man ex
erted himself to tho uttnott in big ef
forts to insure our speedy departure
on tho morrow. Calamity had been
selected by Limbuiger to do tbo dirty
work in tlie ordcrlv room, tno former
unoompliiiniiigly acting as ho was told.
Just before UUod aquffiirig nbBe was
heard in the first sergeant's room, ac

the rapid disohargo of two revolver

his hiother man as long as ho lived.
Tho agony in hanging occurs beforo
death and not at death, in some di
seases tho moribund condition lasts for
hours, and in cases like this, where
thcro is no hopo for recovery, death's
door is opened and the patient passes
away as qniftly as if going asleep.

In nearly all respects, except as to
their fiscal politics. If nnytb.iig, thu
conditions havo been moro favorable
to Victoria than to South Waits. Yqt
what is thu rcsultt Victoria, wfio
when sho was a fno trado cot.my was
in everything which indicttoj material
progress ahead of New South Wales,
lias been steadily falling behind in tho
race since sho adopted protection. In
18G61 tho Victoria revenuo' was one" mil
lion moro ; in 18HS it was one million less
than that of New South Wales ; last
year tho imports into Victoria only ex
ceeded thoso into New South Wnles
by ono million. In 1806 tho exports
from Victoria were valued at three
millions more than thnso from Now
South Wales j last year they were
seven millions less. In 18(1(5 under
Ifreo trado Victoria hid already a1 con
s'ulorablo manufacturing industry,
iwheroas Now South1 Wales could 'hard-
,ly bo spoken of as a manufacturing
colony. Yet in 1887 JSew South
'Wales employed in her manufacturing
jinduBtrii s 45,873 hands out of a popu
lation of a million, with a machinery
of 20,152 horse, power, while Victoria
employed 45,773, with a machinery of
21,018 horse-power, showing a surplus
in favor of Now South Wales small
it is true, but' Btill a surplus. In only,
bno respect has Victoria advanced
moro rapidly than Now South Wales
namely in agriculture. Iu this re
spect sho has increased the lead over
New South Wales, which sho possess
ed in 18G6. She lias increased her
cultivation five fold, while Now South
Wales has increased hors barely, three
fold. But in tho face of the' protract
ed drought iu tho latter colony and
the superior adaptability of Victorian
soil to agriculture, increase in tuts re
spect cannot outweigh, tho testimonials
6f deolino given by other facts. It is
impossible, indeed, to resist tho conclu
sion that thu' progress of one colony'
