Many your ago, when tho great Von
Moltke, the renowned iimrslml of the invin
cible. Prussian armies, declared that our
civil war didn't interest him bccaimo ho
was not "concerned In tho fighting of
mobs," and othor talk of tho kind was
heralded across the water, it seemed thnt
thero might bo something In It. Ameriou
could boast of neither a Marathon noru
Waterloo, neither u Hannibal nor n Nnpo
loon. But tho war annalist is driving that
inexcusablo modesty out of our heads.

tory is not yet fixed. So it is yet too early
to declure how much hunt? upon tho ia-t-ues
at Antietam and Gettysburg, on Sht
loh and Chickaruaue;a, on Naahvillo and
SI urfecsboro. But one species of glory we
may claim In consoqnencoof tho civil war
nud challcngo tho world's verdict upon It,
for tho test of the battleileld proved It
again and again, and that Is that the mar
tial heroes of tho past, whether the Spar
tan braves, tho warriors from beyond tho
Ithino or Napoleon's invlnelbles, recruited
some goodly company to sharo their eter
nal bivouacs from tho ranks of these saino
American volunteers whom European mar
tinets lightly classed as a mob. And ora
tors and poets, those ready panegyrists of
physical bravery, shall find In our Spartan
bands, our Swiss guards, our Light Bri
gades, our Tamerlunes and l'lumed
Knights, our modern Hales and Jaspers
nnd Marions and Waynes, fresh subjects
w ith which to eniliclliidi tho grand old
themes. Custer, nt tho head of 100 sabers,
charging full upon a brigade of Hamp
ton's troopers at Gettysburg, his golden
locks streaming behind as tho nriflamb
of battle, was but another Navarro at Ivry,
and tho raiding khans of tho orient, those
untamed Isbiuacls moving to conquest for
booty and glory, never displayed greater
daring than Forrest when, In broad day
light, with scarcely moro than a body
guard billowing, he rodo into tho clrclo of
10,000 enemies along thu open streets of a
city straight to headquarters of tho op
posing army to capture its commander, or
when for days and even months ho played
hide and sock In territory bristling with
hostile camps and fortified posts, recruit
ing and marching out new battalions.
A Manuiou, a Iiolund, a Winkelricd
have- wo yet to produce, but tho poet of
the future shall sing of our dashing Kear
jiy, our noblo JJcPheraon, our fiery A. P.
Hill, each borne by his Impetuous valor
far Into the enemy's embattled ranks, thero
to full n single, shining target for a myr
iad of foes. There, too, IsourGrocne.the sil
ver haired veteran of sixty odd years, hold
ing off for ono whole night with a baro
skirmish line on Culp's Hill at Gettysburg
the assaults of an entire Confederate divi
sion. There Is Cleburne at Franklin,
charging at tho head of regiment after
regiment and brlgndo after brigade, car
rying numberless redoubts and lino upon
line of ramparts, but leaving tho glory to
others while he rushed off to win new vic
tories and to full at lost close to tho guns
of the enemy's unconquerable stronghold.
And thero Is Lytlo, Chlckainauga's richest
sacrifice, In a crisis of tho buttle shouting
to tho hanilful within hearing, tho last of
Ids once noble brigade: "Gentlemen, wo
can dio but once. Now is our timo. It

his lifcblood. A fourth bullet reached his
heart, and ho fell dead from tho saddle.

but not so with that story of tho bold dash
for tho colors on Cemetery Hldgo when tho

bodies until ono by one tho pieces wero
hauled away and' left 110 dead comrades
stretched in irregular rows around tho
wheel ruts and trull prints on tho spot
whero tho guns hr.d stood.
It is plain that only when foemen of
equal mnttlo sustain tho combat can such
heroism bo born, and so wo read how Gor
don's Alabamians at Fair Oaks, when
caught In the angle between two lines in
tho same manner as Duryee's men at Ma
nassas, stood their ground In spito of or
ders to retreat until whole companies had
been annihilated and the roster of officers
completely wiped out.
Closer still may tho rivulry between
northern brawn and southern blood bo
traced in tho careers of individual com
mands. Two such 1 shall refer to in on
Tho heaviest losers nt Gettysburg wero
two opposing regiments tho Twenty
fourth Michigan and tho Twenty-sixth
North Carolina. They met on tho first
day almost man for man, and in tho des
perate dueling of Mel'herson's woods bat
tled until nothing remained of either ex
cept their Qngs and two pitiful squads of
men. Michigan lost !5!7 out of 4!)(i and
North Carolina OSS out of HM, yet tho
remnunt of tho latter joined Pickett's
charge on tho third day, retiring with SO
men in line, while tho Michigan fragment
turned out in tho repulse of Ewell's bat
talions on the ot her front of Cemetery Hill.
For deeds lest ghastly and which charm
by their more pleasing features of personal
valor we turn to tho lake raider Bealland
his daring and all but successful plan to un
loose the prison liolts at Johnson's island
and ultimately conquer tho lakes and
northern border for the Confederacy; to
Andrews and his "-2 111 starred Ohio com
rades, penetrating the Georgia wilderness
und seizing from the enemy n locomotive
and train to blockade the railway against
Confederate ro - enforcements passing
through to western battlefields; to the
seven southern tars who volunteered to go
down In tho submarine torpedo boat ut
Charleston al ter five crews had been smoth

the same fate yet justifying their valor by
carrying thu L nion ironclad llousutonio
to the bottom with them; to Major Kce
nan, fighting to gain time at Chiinccllors
ville and driving the leading squadron of
his column of troopers Into tho enemy's
solid square to be rut down to the last
man, leader and all, by pistol shot and
saber blow; to Stuart, encircling the Union
armies with his raiders, and to Kilput
rick's band outmatching- that by riding
100 miles through Lee's armed camps and
charging the liiehmond fortifications on
horseback; to Leo's bravo boy colonel,
Willie J'egrain, handling his cannon on
tho front lino with thu sauciness of an
urchin sporting a popgun; to Corse, In
Allatoona Pass, signaling now to his su
perior, "I am short u check bone nnd un

his chivalous antagonist, l'Vo aro pre

of blood indefinitely;" to Colonel Mulli

tho Union forts in Tennessee in tho guiso
of loyal engineer Inspectors and as calm

Likewise fresh glories havo our gallant
tars added to tho daring deeds of tho sea.
Not to dwell upon tho ofttold tales, as of
Farrngut lashed In tho rigging that ho
might see over the clouds of battle smoke;
of VVordeu, blinded in notion, yet fighting

Of exploits like these so briefly sketch
ed, for tho scores that havo become cele
brated hundreds are scarcely known.
From tho stories of t he campaigns of tho
!)00 fighting regiments, eaeli of them, u
stirring war drama might be evolved. In
70 of those regiments moro soldiers fell
fighting in Iviltlo by from 10 to iil) per
cent than In tho crack Gorman regimenl.i
in the Franco-Prussian war with its
bloody Gravelotto und Mars la Tour. Fa
mous brigades uro fully represented in
these lighting battalions, a fact which
proves that their unique distinction was
not occidental in origin, but was earned
where the bullets Uew like hail. If it
takes a man's weight In lead to kill one in
battle, then between 30 nnd 40 tons of
missiles fly past tho mark when 100 nro
struck dead out of a body of 400.
Tho regiment leading all the northern
army in buttlo losses ot Gettysburg, tho
Twenty-fourth Michigan, numod above,
fought there, and throughout its servico
in the company of four crack regiments,
tho five constituting the "Iron Brigade."
The bravest of tho live, tho Second W Is-
eonsin, weatherod 15 desperate battles, and
In proportion to tho number carrying
muskets In its ranks lost moro men killed
by the enemy's firo than uny other regi
ment which woro tho blue.
Tho Confederacy nlso had its iron bri
gades, but not under thnt nnnio. Gregg
and McGowan's South Carolina brigado
and tho "Orphan brigado" of Kentucky
fought under tho suvngo motto of tho Oid
Guard of France, which "dies, but' never
surrenders." Orr's South Carolina rifles
led oil the clans of the south In piling up
battle losses and contributed to tho roll of
honor 29 ofllcorB nud U05 soldiers killed,
besides over 700 wounded. Ono of Its
companion regiments, tho First Palmetto,
left am dead on tho fields of Virginia and
Maryland, and tho brigade vies with tho
Kentucky "Orphans" for tho proud dis
tinction of having given tho heaviest dolo
In blood to the lost causo. Tho "Or
phans" wero exiled eons of that land of
splendid flghteTs, nnd out of 6,000 who
crossed tho border in 1801 Union bullets
spared loss than 200 to report for surren
der In 1H05. Tho South Carolinians In
tho five reglmsnts under tho leadership of
I Gregg and McGpwun piled UP the enor
mous roll of l,.ir.o kiiicd in ncllcn. That
means f,000kllledand wounded, equal the
lighting strength of two brigades.'
The "Iron brigado" and tho First Ver
mont brigado also stand in uniquo rivalry
with respect to losses. Tho Green moun
tain boys scored tho highest deulh list by
actual count nnd the western men tho
highest in proportion to original stn ngfh.
Tho Vermonters hi.d their elite rcgiim ut,
tho Fifth, omposed of men who didn't
know how to retreat, und this again its
elite company. In ono of tho peninsula
buttles this company (F.) foced the storm
of canister in front of Kemper's Virginia
battery until only seven men remained
out of DO combatants. Tho dead, to tho
number of 25, lay on tho ground in regu
lar battle order, us if sleeping on their
arms, nnd six members of ono family
touched elbows in those prostrate files,
whilo a seventh was borne uway wounded.
And that gallant race which fights so well
for all causes but its own won fresh honor
by upholding In America the glorious tra
ditions of Fontenoy, for the green ban
ners of our Irish brigado were consecrated
by tho blood of a thousand sons of old
Krin who fell around them never to riso
nnd of 3,000 spared to prove tho talo
by showing their scars of war. Three of
these Irish regiments, fitly named after the
three most noted Irish commands in the
wars of Kiirope tho Sixty-third, Sixty
ninth and Eighty-eighth New York be
camo so reduced by flghtng that tho 10
companies In each wero consolidated into
two during tho lust year of the war.
But with few exceptions, nearly nil of
which have been named, tho IIU0 fighting
regiments stood alone, uninspired by raco
rivalry or other form of esprit do corps
than that which ever stirs tho soul of tho

One should servo tho guns with tho can
noneers of Slocomb's New Orleans artil

help them hurl 6,000 charges of shot and
shell Into thu enemy's ranks, lucky not to
be among the 43 killed or UK) wounded in
that slender crew of a four gun battery, or
"plungo Into tho thick of the fight" with
tho Tennesseeuns ot the First (Confeder
ate) regiment from Shiloh to Atlanta, not
counting a buttle a battle unless they made
a bayonet chargo upon bluzing cannon;
then with tho First South Carolina und
tho Eighty-third Pennsylvania take up
their uniquo threo years' duel and fight
over tho bloody course from Gaines Mill
to Five Forks, tullying the dead almost
man for man in each battle until quite
800 a side had been slain. Yes, ono should

KINDERGARTENS FOR PARENTS.
A. riaco V;inrrd Where They Kay Learn
tho lla Jiniriits of Common Sense,
Among the numerous educational Insti
tutions of which this country, mid indeed
tho world, are In need, is a grownup kin
dergarten to which parents may bo sent
to learn t lie rudiments of common son60
and tho simple laws of causo and effect
that, It would seem, must naturally be pat
ent to tho meanest Intelligence. If tho
father is selfish and fault finding nt home,
he bus no right to expect his sons, with
his example constantly before them, to be
helpful nnd good humored. If tho mother
practices deceit and equivocation, sho
should not condemn her daughters for not
being truthful and sincere. Why lihould
a man who reads aloud and discusses In
the presence of his boys thu police news
nnd reports of the details of murders and
executions punish tliPni for devouring
dime novels or other sensational fiction?
Why should a woman who customarily
adopts a scolding und complaining tone
reproach her girls for not being cheerful
Parents have no right to expect a spon
taneous development of goodness in n
child. If, with nil their advantages of
nge, experience and mastery of tho situa
tion they habitually do tilings they ought
not to do, how is tho child, ignorant, de
pendent and with their conduct ns its con
stant model, to habitually do right? The
peevish voice, the deceitful word, tho self
ish net, tho ungoverned temper, ore on al
most irresistible influence beside which
mero commands und penalties are futile.
Children have a keen sense of injustice,
and when they are punished for a fault
that their parents commit with impunity
tho good and suflieieiit reason given for
tho hitter's exemption from tho general
law "I am your father," or "I am your
mother," does not seem n good und suffi
cient reason to tho victims of urbitrnry
homo legislation, or even to the unpreju
diced observer. Mero parenthood does
not imply infallibility. There is, unfortu
nately, no natural law which precludes
persons entirely unlit for the responsibil
ity from having children und misgovern

daughters to bo gentle, generous, truthful
and broad minded, live up to thnt standard

A Kcuicily Tor Uai y f the Troscnt Day

from an F.uglish article on tho subject

life. It Is o remedy against many of the
diseases prevalent at, thu present time.
All who desire strength, health and beauty
should lake plenty cf outdoor exercise in
addition to tho homo or ryinnusiiini exer
cises. Outdoor exercises help to tho de
velopment, of the respiratory organs.
Gymnastics should be directed toward
promoting the healthy activity of tho or
pins that make blood, to correcting de
tects and to tho perfection of tho human
figure. The must helpful movements; uro
also the mo t beautiful. The Greeks cul
tivated 'lie hotly as no ether nn! km litis
done, witli this result. In training ono
should begin slowly and buildup tho weak
parts Hist; (lien mercise should be taken
so ns to bring nearly all the muscles into
action at tho same time. This stimulates
thu action of tho heart and lungs, besides
Increasing the circulation and respiration.
Many muscles of the body, from lack of
use, wastct away. The technical term for
this wasting Is til rophy, nud to avoid it
every muscle In the body should be exer
cised regularly. Light, quick exe's'lso is
the best. Heavy dumbbell,! or pulley
weights should not be used. Ono hour's
Vigorous exercise daily is ail chat is Heeded
and should always be followed by a tepid
bath. Avoid everything that throws ex-,

HOW TO LIVE.
Flat Chests ami Thoso 'cj Ilottows In the
It Is c.:-y to ninko rules for a healthful
manner of living, but such rules nro diffi
cult to keep for any length of timo and
sometimes take much comfort out of life.
Thoso uro good rules to follow: 1. Avoid
nil excess; excess is man's greatest onemy.
2. Do not change any habit too suddenly,
for habit, is second nature. 8. Preserve
un even nnd tranquil mind. It is the best
guarantee of long lii'o und perfect health.
4. Seek und enjoy puro and temporato air.
It invigorates both body and mind. 0.
Select with the greatest care tho most suit
able food. li. Always preserve n proper pro
portion between tho food eaten and tho
exert ise taken. 7. If you would keep well,
bo sparing with medicine. After these
rules for health, just, a word on a matter of
beauty a word of worth to thoso who
.i. i -
want it. Have you ugly llttlo hollows in
your neck nnd a flat chest? Hero is an
admirable exercise taught to women who
aro so afflicted, which, if followed persist
ently, will develop the chest muscles and
fill out alt those telltale hollows In tho
neck: Advance one foot, ns In a long step,
und stand Willi the weight on It, extend
ing tho arms parallel to ench other in
front until they ore in lino with tho
shoulders, energize theim and closo tho
hands us if each wero firmly grasping n
rope, keeping tbo eyes steadily fixed on
some point about two feet alwivo the level.
Inhale sluwl.v, and with great energy pull
tho extended arms down and well back
Ward; at tho same time bend tho torso for
ward, but do not transfer tho weight of
tho body. Tim head bends backward in
opposif ion to the tor.,o. Hold the position
fur a moment, then withdraw all unneces
sary nerve force from tho muscles and ex
halo as tho body returns to tho origiuul
Tho sketch shows i tailor mndo capo of
tan colored cloth. It is trimmed with a,
stitched decoration, m:d tho standing col

It Is tho Duty of Rational Unman Beings
to Tlo lleiplul.
Three-quarters of thondvico about homo
decoration in unpractical and leads tho un
wary housewife astray, but there are somo
Improvements that it is possible to under
take and carry through successfully. For
Instance, patience, cr.ro nnd several cans
of enamel paint will convert n shabby set
of dce.l bedroom furniture into something
worth having. Tho enamel may bo put
on over tho original paint, the furnlturo
being first thoroughly washid with snap
and water. Three coats at least nro re
quired, and four ore desirable. Theonamel
bought (it un art dealer's is far moro ex-
'I V 1r ,
little (ii::i. S (SOWN,
pensive Ihe.n that obtained nt n regular
paintshop mid is of a less serviceable
quality. Tho qui !; drying sort will allow
all threo coats to bu applied on the same
day if necessary. If new handles nro
bought for the bureau drawers, the reju
venation will ha still mure thorough nnd
Kna'ael Is nut s uitable fur (lie woodwork
of it no:n, but if it Is desirable to havo the
woodwork anil furniture alike in color
quick drying paint is also sold in largo
cans ready for use. This simplifies Ore
niiiuteur decorator's work very niuo', and
Is u great convenience to hnusuHitls who
ore not within easy reach of it professional
painter, espci ially as workmen, even when
binding!)- engaged, havo a universal habit
of postponing their visits f rout day to day,
and so keepingthelrciuployersiu suspenso
F.very woman should haven collection of
light tools suited to her size nnd strength
tintl know how to use them, for moments
often urho when five minutes' intelligent
employment of o saw or a piano would
rlear away some obstacle from tho homo
decorator's path, that without that help
iiist keep her nt a standstill until she can
secure a man's assistance. It Is tho duty
of overy rational human being to be self
helpful, nnd not to find it necessary to rely
upon somebody else whenover an emer
gency arises. In tho Industrial schools of
tho future It Is to bo hoped that boys ns
well as glr!s will lie taught to sew and
girls as well as buys bo taught to hondlo
tools and understand machinery.
An illustration is given of a child's
frock mndo of red wool. Tho front is ar

to a herald's tabard, whilo tho full book is
confined by a belt, A squaro yoko of gul
