War's Night Before , Christmas.
It was the night before Christmas
1864. Our brigade had been in camp
along the Rapidan for a fortnight, and
everybody thought the campaign had
closed. Winter/ quarters, had been
erected, cold 'weather had come, and
those who had fought and marched the
long summer through congratulated
themselves on a season ,of quiet and
The picket-lines were about half a
mile apart, and the Confederates be
yond were settling down in winter (par
ter& It was Stonewall Jackson's old
brigade in front of us, backed by that
of Welker and flanked by other Con-
federate troop& For a week there' bad
been no firing by the , pickets. War'a
cold-blooded murders had been replac
ed by a spirit of peace, and the men
who bad felt the tiger's thirst for blood
now asked nothing 'more than to rest
Such was the situation, when, just
as the gloom of the night before Christ
mas settled dovn over friend and foe,
my company was ordered out under
arms. It afterwards appeared that in
formation bad been 'received to the
effect that Gens. Lee and , Johnston
were at a farm Lionae just within the
Confederate lines, and onr'mission was
to capture them. Therefore, in the
gloom of the winter evening, with dark
banks of clouds racing across the
heavens, and snow squalls skurrying
down upon us at intervals, we mounted
and set off at a trot for a ford seven or
eight miles above the camp. The -lower
one we knew to be heavily guarded;
the upper one we hoped woild be open.
And soit waii. The cold, swift river,
already covered with floating ice, was
guard . enough, the Confederates
thought. The water was breast high
to the .poor horses, and moat of them
shivered like a man with Oie ague as
they reached the otipositn Oore. It
was only mercy to them to L lndulge in
an hour's gallop.
Afar.off we saw the: lights of a farm
house—not one light, but evefy window
towards us was illuminate} , proving
that even in the shadow of the war's
ghastly horrors some one was remem
bering that Christmas would come with
the morrow. That house was our ob
jective point. The highway led straight
pastthe door, and a Ridden dash must
surprise all who had gathered there.
I knew what our men were thinking
of as they formed in column a quarter
of a mile away from the charge.
Every father's thoughts went back to
wife and children and Santa Clans and
little stockings hanging up for presents,
and I believe every man truly hoped
that we might not fire a gun or shed ( a
drop of blood on this night which be
longed to peace instead of war.
As the word was given 'we swept fbr
. ward at a canter, and in three minutes 1
• encircled the house. I was one of the
dozen troopers ordered', to diemotint
and 'dash to secure the prisoners, and
was second inside. This; was the sight
we saw as we poured into the big room:
A gray-beaded grandfather anegrand
- mother, a soldier with his arm in a
sling, a wife and mother, a half-grown
_ daughter, -- and three or four men and
women who must have been neighbors.
There was an open Bible on the gratid
father's lap, three little stockings hung
- beside the chimney, and in the' room
beyond was the table et which all were
about to sit down as we entered.
It seemed a full minute before any
one moved. We had surprised them,
. and in tarn had been surprised. - Our
informtition had been false, and we bad
made a ride of a dozen miles to burst in
on a scene of peace. We were still
standing there, speechless:with surprise,
when there came a suddenpopl popl
pop! of musketry, -followed by shouts,
order and a clash of steel. I bad no
sooner mounted my Wage than I saw
that we were surrounded• by- infantry.
We charged straight at the mass in the
road before Mt - , but were driven back.
Then, we charged by the road and ran
upon a battery of three pieces. As we
were forced back the fight. whirled.
There were a dozen to one, and though
we charged agaiii and again, ten min
utes put an end to the fight. Of eigh
ty-five men who had left camp ten had
broken through, fourteen were -prison
ers, and the remainder lay dead on • the
trampled snow, along with .a score of
The stark corpses of men—the agon
ized groans off wounded horses—the
snow melting with warm 'streams of
blood—that was vat's chances.
I looked into the house through a
shattered window. The grandfather lay
stark and stiff on the floor, his blood
stained the Bible as it poured out,. The
grandmother was lying at his feet, her
white hair matted with blood, and her
eyes wet o closed in death es I looked at
her. The soldier and his wife were un
hurt, but they had better- been dead.
The three stockings hone as before,
butone byone they had brought out the
curly heads ,who bad hung them there.
and they three corpses! Bullets
meant for enemies had sought out these
little innocents as they slept and dream
ed of heaven, and men who had gazed
upon a thousand detid unmoved, shed
tears as the little bodies were laid on
the floor just under the stockings Santa
Claus was to fill and ibring joy to their
hearts. It was midnight now. Christ
mas had dawned upon white hairs stain
ed with blond—childish „hearts stilled
by murder—men groaning in anguish—
women with breaking bearts--God's
mantle of purity blotched and drabbl4
and crimsoned, until the' winter moon
crept behind the darker clouds to Nile
the spot with shadows. —.3f; Qaad.
GOATS ON 2111 —The most
striking feature of the dairy ranch of F.
S. Clough, in San Mateo Canon, is the
new dairy-house which Mr. Clough re
cently completed at a cost of fifteen
hundred dollars. It is eighteen by
thirty-six in ground dimensions, finished
externally in rustic style, and inside is
as trim and cleanly as the thrifty house-
witeie !beet room.' The butter-room,
an _ apartment
by fifteen feet in
dimensions, is as inviting ass parlur.
The apparatus - for handling the milk
and ;inking the butter is complete in
every detail. and is designed throkigh
out for the saving of labor. The churn
holds fifty-two gallows of , cream, and
turns out from one. hundred to
hundred and twenty pounds of butter
at each churning. It is worked by goat
power, the appliances being a treading
wheel eighteen feet in diaineter, which
connects with and operatesn shaft rim
ning into the dairy-house, and this in
turn connecting with bog-wheels work
ing the dashers. Mr: Clough says that
the goats In operating the Wheel indulge
their natural propensities for climbing,
and they apply themselves 'to the work
with great gusto. The herd consists of
- some eight or ten animals. ranging from
the grandmother and old 'Billy' with,
the whiskers, dowti to the youngling
not over a foot high... When released
!tom their pens they one and 01, great
and small, run bleating for the wheel,
and the only trouble to contend with
thereafter is the excess of power , which
they are apt to give it in the course r of
their frolicsome gambols. •

Obserrr says: A good joke is being told
just now on an old resident, living not
a kindred miles from Sarnia.
F--z--came to town and went to one of
oar leading hotehi to dinner. A new
feature had been introdueed into the
lintel since the colonel's last visit, in
the shape of a yaiter in fall dress, swal
low tail coat, etc. The colonel came in
and seated himself at a table,_ and' the
waiter came up and said,—:
•What will you have, sir ?'
The colonel, who is a little deaf,'shook
him cordially by the hand, and rising,
,‘Really, you have the advantage of
me, sir, er-er, where was it I met you
before ? Toronto ?'
Then leading him to a window, and
turning him so that the light fall ua his
face, again remarked that 'the :lounte
nance was familiar, but really he could
not place him,' etc. The waiter replied,
of course, and repeated the remark,—
'What will , c)u have, sir ?'
The colonel thanked him.
'Really I never take anything before
diuner,', he said, and returning - to his
seat he asked the waiter to be seated.
The waiter, of course. excused him
self, and sent a pretty dining-room girl
to wait on the Colonel. The colonel
went home and is still wondering who
his distinguished friend was.:
Onions OF SISTERS OF CRARITE.—In
the year 1617, when Vincent was one
day gOing up the pulpit , at Chatillon, a
lady who had come to hear him preicti
detained him for:- a moment, with the
request to make mention in his sermon_
of a poor family living about half
league from Chatillon, where there was
much sickness and and great need of
help. Vincent was asked to recommend
this family to the charity of the congret
gation. This he did with such effee
"that several . of the people set out on
leaving the church to visit the - poor fam
ily, and took with them bread, meat,
and other things for their relief. After
vespers; Vincent went also to visit them,
and was surprised to meet so many of
the people comiag back: His practical
eye at once perceived that the matter
had been carried ,to excess.- The poor
people had received ' far mere than they
could use. Many of the provisions would
be spoiled before they-could be availed
of, and the family for whose benefit
these offerings Were intended would be
es badly old as before. Vincent began
to think that systm and organization
were needed. He 'Lamed a parochial
association, which he called the confra
ternity of Charity; and out of this little
streamlet:of good works at Chatillon
grew a vast organization for the benefit
of the poor.
GlMEOn:cos.—Few persons outside
of England, where coursing is one 01 the
naional sports,' have auy idea of the
value of greyhounds. At a recent sale
ten dogs brought seven hundred and

the new preservative, wilt not preserve for ail time in a perfect:, fresh ancipatatable condition.
The value of OZONE as inatural preserver has been known to our abler Chemists for years, but
until now no means of producing it in a practical, inexpensive, and simple manner have been
discovered."., • ...
'Microscopic observations prcive that decay is due to septic matter, or minute germs that demob*
and feed upon animal sad vegetable structures. OZONE, applied by the. Prentiss method, seises
and destroys these germs it once, and thus preserves. At our offices in Cincinnati can be seen
almost every article that can be thought of preserved by this process and every visitor Is wel
come to comein, taste, smell, take away with lim, and test in every way the merits of OZONE as
