On a mound or series or mounds,
ilslng out of the plains about half way
between Chattanooga and Missionary
nidge Is the "National .Military Ceme

"cities of the dead" In this cotinlrv.
Hero over thirteen thousand of our
I'nluu soldiers sleep under the wntch
ful care or the nation they died to save.
The exact number or Interments are
13.09S or which 1.9GD are classed as "un

Dead," at the superintendent's ofllce,
19S sons of l'eiui" lie here, each grave
being appropriately marked. The cem
etery contains seventy-five acres, en
closed by a substantial six fool gran
ite wall, while a green hedge planted
Just within, and a few feet distant
from the wall, .relieves the rugged
character of the masonry and sug
gests not the city, but the "garden of
the dead." The grounds beautiful
naturally, are kept In perfect ordi .'
and delights the eye. while It touches
the bcart of the visitor. The magnill

the charming drives through the
grounds, the quiet beauty of the spot
Itself and the historical associations
connected with It all tend to make our
visit to this spot one of the most en
joyable feasts which Chattanooga,
with all her wealth of scenery can fur

Three Polish Children Die Suddenly
nud Physicians Are Puzzled.
Coioner Is Investigating.
The death of the three small children
or Mr. and Mrs. Michael Vnrkii, I'o
Innders residing on Scott street, Oly
pluinl, from unknown causes, has
caused no little excitement In the bor
ough and has. started an Investiga
tion by Coroner J. ,F. S.tltry.
The oldest child, aged 7 years, was
taken 111 on Sunday last nud Dr.
ICranz, who was 'summoned, was un
able to diagnose the case. The little
girl died on Thursday afternoon and
on Thmsdny night two of the other
diildreii, a girl aged ." years, and a
boy aged .'1 years, were taken sick.
Tlte-e two died yesteiday morning.
Dr. K runs', was at a loss to know the
cause of death and refused to issue a
certificate of death. He notified Cor
onoer Sultry yesterday afternoon and
the latter went up to Olyphant last
night. He performed an autopsy on
the body of the oldest child at Propoko
vltch's undertaking establishment, as
sisted by Drs. Van Sickle and KraiiK.
The medical men were unable lo find
any pathological indications of any
known disease and were forced to ar
ilve at the conclusion that the child
must huve taken something poisonous
into the stomach. The coroner re
moved the stomach and will have an
analysis of Its contents made.
He Imp.inncled a jury and will con
duct an inquest as toon as this analy
sis Is completed.
