I A Story of the Civil War. 4t
♦ i
"Stoi>, l»ai>i>le. We must look to
Tbe sceuc was a green stretch of
euiumer lawn In front of n flue old
Virginia farmhouse; the speaker a
•light, bright faced girl, gracefully
mounted on a small, gray pony.
The sun was dropping out of sight
behind the green hills, and far away
down the silver bcud of the Aecoceek
came the tramp of retreating troops,
with now and then the muffled roll of
a drum or the shrill bray of a bugle.
Old Virginia, the queen mother of the
6unuy south, was overrun with soldiers,
devastated by fire and sword, shaken
to her very foundations by the thun
ders of the civil war.
Colonel Moreton was far away from
his pleasant home In the front ranks
of death and danger; but Irene, bis
only child, still braved the terrors of
invasion and remained nt the farm
house with her invalid mother and a
few faithful old servants.
Cantering across the grounds an hour
after tbe retreat of the invading troops,
something attracted the young lady's
notice—a prostrate figure under the
shade of the great Cottonwood treo.
"Stop, Dapple. Wo must look to
Dapple stopped, and Miss Irene
leaped lightly from her saddle, und,
throwing the silken reins over the
pony's neck, she went tripping across
the grounds to the spot where the
figure lay.
It was a tall, soldierly figure, clad In
army blue, with a pale, worn face and
an abundance of curling chestnut hair.
Colonel Moreton's daughter looked
down upon the senseless soldier with
all her woman's divine compassion
stirring within her bosom.
"Poor fellow 1" sho murmured, laying
her soft hand upon his brow. "I wish
I could help hiin."
The soft voice and the softer touch
called back the veteran's wandering
senses. He opened his eyes and looked
up In the young lady's face. Great,
luminous, handsome eyes they were,
that somehow reminded Irene of her
brother Tom's eyes, and Tom was
down In the trenches In front of Itlch
mond. The compassion In her heart
stirred afresh. She smoothed back the
tangled curls from the soldier's brow.
"My poor fellow!" she said. "Can 1
do anything for you?"
lie struggled up to his albow, with a
stifled groan.
"My horse threw me," bo explained,
"and they left me behind. I think 1
must have fainted from the pain. I
thank you very much, but I can't see
how you can help me. I suppose I must
lie here till they take me prisoner, and
I'd almost as soon be shot."
Irene smiled—a smile that lighted her
dark, bright face Into positive beauty.
"1 am In the enemy's country," she
said, "but If you will trust me I think I
can help you, at least I will see that
you are refreshed and made comfort
She put her hand to her bosom, and
drawing forth a tiny whistle she put It
to her lips and blew a sharp little blast.
Dapple pricked up his gray ears und
came cantering to her side, followed
Instantly by a colored manservant.
"You see," smiled Miss Irene, flush
ing a beaming glance on the soldier,
"I hold my reserve forces at a
moment's warning. Here, James, help
this gentleman to the horse and then
ride for Dr. Werter to dress his limb."
James obeyed without a word, and by
the time the sun was fairly out of sight
the Union soldier, refreshed and made
comfortable, lay asleep In the best
chamber of the pleasant old southern
Meanwhile, on the long veranda, Irene
kept watch, her slight, willowy llgure
wrapped In a scurlet mantle, her flossy,
raven tresses floating on the winds.
Ity and by, as the midnight stars
came out and glittered overhead, above
the dreamy How of the river, above the
murmur and rustle of the forest leaves,
arose the clash and clang, the roar and
tramp, of advancing troops.
Irene's dark face flushed and her lus
trous eyes dilated. She crossed the
veranda with a swift step and tapped
lightly at the door of her guest's cham
"They are coming," she whispered.
"They will lake you prisoner If you re
main. You must go."*
The soldier started to his feet and
made his way out,but he reeled against
the doorpowt, faint and gasping for
"I can't walk!" lie cried. "There's no
hope of escape!"
But Irene held out her lithe, young
"Yes, there Is," she said cheerfully.
"Lean on me. I can help you down,
Mid you shall ride Dapple. He knows
the river road, and you will overtake
your comrades by dawn. Hurry; thero
Is no time to lose!"
The soldier leaned upon the brave,
helpful young ann ninl succeeded In
reaching the lawn below.
"Diipple," the young girl called In her
clear, silver not< s. "come here!"
In a breath Dapple was at her side.
The KIII stood and looked at the gen
tle creature and then threw her arms
nround Ills licek.
"Oh, Dapple, pretty Dapple," she sob
bed, "It break i my heart to part from
you! <ioodliy. 1 >upp! •!"
In the next bren I HIIC stood erect,
her eyes (lashing through a mist of
"Come, sir," slie said, "allow me to
help you to mount. Dapple, take this
gentleman down the river road and at
your utmost speed."
Dapple uttered a sagacious whinny,
but the soldier hesitated.
"Why don't you mount, sir?" cried
the Klrl Impatiently. "Will you remain
here and ruin both yourself and me?"
lie vaulted into the saddle without ll
"Away, I tipple, like the wind!" cried
Irene, mid the little mountain pony
shot oIT like an arrow.
The war was over, and once more
over the blasted and desolate homes ot
Virginia peace and freedom reigned.
Captain Uutherford made it his busi
ness to go back to the Potomac hills
and to Colonel Moreton's farmhouse
the moment he was discharged from
seri Ice. But where the stately old
homestead stood he found nothing but
a mass of ruins, and of Dapple's mis

From the forest shadows near at

came ambling forth. Madam I.enoir's
companion, advancing with the claret
cup In her slim white hand, uttered a
sharp little cry and wasted all the
luscious liquor on the rustling leaves
at her feet.
"Oh, Dapple, Dapple!" she cried.
Dapple heard the sweet voice and
knew it in an instaut. He broke Into
a Joyous neigh and shot like an arrow
for the young lady's side. She caught
his shaggy head and held It close to
her bosom, sobbing like the silly child
she was.
"Oh, Dapple, my pretty Dapple, have

Elm Leavrd Qoldenrod.
It Is well known that when a plant
grows In shady places It Is likely to
have a greater leaf area than when It
grows In the open sunshine. It must
have a larger surface to collect the
light when the latter is comparatively
dim. Now, moM of the goldenrods live
In the open fields, having rather nar
row leaves, but the exquisite elm leaved
goldcnrod lives in woods and copses,
where the shadows are thick and di
rect sunshine Is a fleeting thing. And
so we find that this species has the
broad, thin leaves of a shade plant—
leaves with well developed stems, but
otherwise so similar to those of the
elm tree ns to give this goldenrod Its
distinctive name. But It gives a touch
of color to the somber shades of the
woods that we would not willingly do
without.—Woman's Home Companion.

A Cheap Contrivance For Handling
Darrein and Sacks of Proilnce.
A simple and cheaply constructed
boom derrick arranged as Illustrated
will be found of much service by a
great many farmers, and the time and
labor that will be saved by its use will
more than equal that required to make
It, says an Ohio Farmer writer. When
boxes, barrels or sacks of produce are
stored In a basement, one man without
some mechanical assistance of this
kind will lie unable to lift them from
the cellar way and load on a wagon
conveniently, and even If several men
engage In the work they cannot remove
and load the articles as easily and
speedily without the derrick as they
can by its help. A derrick made in the
same way and supported as best suits
the case on hand will often be useful
for ot'. er purposes, such us getting out
! stone, londiti'.' ice, < te.
For the derrick post use a piece of
stout timber not less thau 4 by 4 Inches
square, or a round pole If preferable.
IQic length of this poie will be govern
ed somewhat by the leugth of the boom
and by the situation of the derrick.
For the boom use a round or square
piece of lluht but stroug wood 10 to 15
feet long. Insert a heavy Iron pin in
the top and the foot of the post and
put ou Iron bands. Illnge one end of
the Istom with iron straps and bolt it
to the post about five feet from the bot
tom, and on the other end put a band
with eyes or hoops, as Is shown In the
partial illustration of the derrick.
If the post is round instead of square,
as pictured, the boom may be attached

A Inrge production of wheat nnd a
corn crop cut by drought In many si>c
tlons bring up the question of feeding
wheat In place of corn. J. T. Wlllurd of
the Kansas station tlnds from a study
(>f experiments and standard statistics
on the subject tlmt wheat and corn fed
In the form of meal are of equal value
for fci-dlng.
In feeding wheat satisfactorily a
number of considerations must be kept
In view. The kernels being much small
er than those of ecu there Is much
more danger of their escaping mastica
tion and passing out undigested. Many
farmers who regarded It as unprofita
ble to feed wheat whole found on
crushing or Kt'liidlug It that all difficul
ty disappeared. It Is especially neces
sary when fed to sfis-rs or milk cows.
In utilmitls with smaller mouths there
Is less waste than with cattle, und some
have observed u positive advantage
with sheep In feeding It whole. This
was due, however, to the greater con
sumption of whole grain than ground.
(Sround wheat has an Important dis
advantage In feeding In that It Is apt
to form u gummy mass, which adheres
'u the teeth, milking It dilllcult nnd dl'j
H-revtible to handle by the animal. This
f:i;ilt hr.s brou the source of some of
the iK)t>r results In f«-ftlliiK It and is best
obvlattd by feeding It mixed with some
other Brain, us coru. oats or Kaiiir com.
Aniiunls fed upon a mixture are also
less liable to become cloyed than when
fed ou wheat alone.
Iu discussing the feeding value of
wheat the grain only has thus far been
In mind. In this year of extreme scar
city of roughage It may not be amiss to
Inject a word of suggestion that wheat
Straw is much better than nothing and
that In all probability the farmers of
the wheat belt can contribute to the
needs of their less fortunate fellow citi
zens and add to their own profits by
preserving, baling and marketing their
straw Instead of burning It as usual.
A Fornfff Plant !S"ow In the Fof®»
Itronnd For Fall Sowing.
n.'..ry vetch Is so much in the agri
cultural foreground Just now that the
accompanying sketch may not come
amiss to those who have not seen the
plant. It Is a perennial or biennial
from western Asia and has given such
I Tib
flue promise lu various parts of the
United Sttaes as to elicit much ap
proval. The seed Is generally sown In
drills,- with some kind of grain to hold
It upright.
It Is recommended to sow In fall—Au
gust to middle of September—for winter
and spring forage. If sown with rye and
successfully grown. It will give excel
lent feed at a time when there Is usual
ly a shortage. Wheat and vetch also
furnish good green fodder in spring.
The Chinch nun.
The Ohio experiment station is re
ceiving letters Indicating an extensive
outbreak of chinch bugs in certain
parts of the state. The following rem
edy, the formula of Professor Forbes
of Illinois, Is therefore offered:
"Dissolve one-half pound hard or soft
soap In one gallon of water and heat to
the boiling point. Ilemove from the
stove and add two gallons of coal oil,
churning the mixture with a good force
pump for 15 minutes. When the emul
sion Is formed, It will look like butter
"To each quart of this emulsion add
15 quarts of water and apply to the
corn In a spray, preferably before 10
a. in. or after 3 p. m. The bugs should
be washed off so that they will float in
the emulsion at the base of the plant.
A teacupful to a hill is generally sulH
cient, but the quantity must vary with
the number of bugs infesting the corn."
The progress of these bugs through
a field may be obstructed by making a
shallow, V shaped trench with the cor
ner of a hoc and filling It with coal tar,
the tar to be renewed In two or three
days. They may also be destroyed by
plowing them under and harrowing
tml rolling.

Preparing For * Journey.
Jerome K. Jerome recalled, with
reverence, a habit of his methodical
uncle who, before packing for a Jour
ney, always "made a list." This was
the system which he followed, gather
ed from his uncle's own Hps:
Take a piece of pat>er and put down
on It everything you can possibly re
quire. Then go over It aud see that It
contains nothing you can possibly do
Imagine yourself In bed. What have
you got on? Very well; put It down,
together with a change. You get up.
What do you do? Wash yourself.
What do you wash yourself with?
Po»p. Put down soap. Qo on till you
have finished. Then take your clothes.
Begin at your feet. What do you wear
or. your feet? Hoots, shoes, socks. Put
them down. Work up till you get to
your head. What do you want besides
clothes? Put down everything.
This is the plan the old gentleman al
ways pursued. The list made, he would
go over It carefully to see that he had
forgotten nothing. Then he would go
over It again and strike out everything
It was possible to dispense with. Then
he would lose the list.
The llnckßlltler.
''Many years ago," says the Provi
dence Journal, "In a village not 20
miles from Providence n revival was In

tinguishable twin brothers who had

It Is Ills TnrkUh Bath, So to Sp?nli«
•ml It la to Him a. Rite, Both Ph;i<
leal and Spiritual - Making Medi
cine to l!ie Great Spirit,
Few, If any, of the writers on th<J
habits, folklore and history of tho
American Indian have devoted any
space to the red man's Turkish bath,
an Institution homemade, to be sure,
but a recognised necessity in everjj
camp and a feature of the daily life of
the Inliau. On the contrary, com*
mentators have conveyed the impres
sion that habits of cleanliness are for
eign to the Indian and that he has an
Inboru aversion to water except foe
culinary purposes.
By the avidity and frequency with'
which the Indian Indulges in his home
made Turkish bath he proves the fal
lacy of this belief aud shows that he,
as well us his white brother, can live
up to the precept "Cleanliness is next
to godliness." only In the practice the
Indian puts cleanliness first
The term Turkish bath Is unknown
to the Imliuu. lie calls that method of
ablution a "medicine sweat." It is to
him a rite both physical and spiritual,
for he cleanses his person and then
"makes medicine" to his Oreat Spirit.
That the rite Is religiously observed
was showu by a band of Brule Sioux
Ituli&ns, who made a Journey across
the continent to the east and went into
encampment In, to them, a strange
On their arrival, even before they
raised their tepee poles, they erected a
"medicine sweat" tent. The framework
of this tent is of hoop poles so trained
that it Is about nine feet In diameter,
four feet high, flat topped and almost
circular lu form.
Just within the framework there is a
bedding of straw about two feet wide,
aud In the center of the tent there is a
whole lu the ground about three feet In
diameter and three feet deep. There
are no steam vents or pipes, no marble
slabs, no rubbers and no sheets. When
the Indian Is ready for his "medicine
sweat" a number of stones or rocka
are heated to almost white heat and
dumped Into the hole In the ground.
Then the red men, 20 or 25 of them, ia
a costume even scantier than Adam's
after the fall, range themselves upon
the straw. They sit mummy fashion,
their chins on their knees and their
arms around their shins, packed so
close together that even if they would
they could not move.
When they are all ready, blankets,
skins and canvas are thrown over the
framework until the tent Is almost air
tight, two or three buckets of water
are passed in and thrown upon the hot
stones and the "medicine sweat" be
gins. The moment the steam begins to
rise the Indians begin a chant, which'
Is kept up without Interruption until
the sweat is over. Packed together,
enveloped In steam so thick that none
can see his neighbor, the Indians sit,
singing and perspiring for an hour or
more. Not an Indian moves. He
neither can nor wants to.
At u signal from the chief or the
medicine man a section of the tent ia
torn away, and with a heave and a
whoop all the bucks make pellmell for
the water. A run and a Jump, and In
they go. It Is Just as much sport for
the oldest warrior as for the boy who
has not yet wou his war bonnet. Onco
more on land, the Indian, having per
formed a duty he owes to himself and
his neighbor, Is ready to "makp medi
cine." This Is always done after tho
"medicine sweat"—in fact It Is part
and parcel of the ceremony, for It la
regarded as a ceremony.
The Indian, clean in person and at
this moment, before his communion
with the God of his fathers, supposed
to be equally clean of mind and guile
less of soul, now proceeds to the high
est point of land In the vicinity of the
cump, thus getting as near to the
Great Spirit as It is possible to do while
on earth. Ou the way he gathers up a
little soil, a stray leaf, some old tobacco
quids, a dead fly or bug or two—in fact
anything which may be deemed refuse,
for he Is about to convey to the Great
Spirit that he has cleansed his person
aud that all things unclean have gone
from him.
These things that he has gathered be
places lu u piece of white cloth, which
In turn Is fastened to the end of a long
stick. The other end of the stick Is
thrust Into the ground at the top of the
hill or knoll, and the good Indian has
made medicine. Two days seldom pass
without the repetition of this cere
mouy. It never varies. The scene may
change, the Indi. i may wander to new
lands or be driven to them, but where
he Is there also is his "medicine sweat"
tent and there he "makes medicine."—
