Swinging along 120 steps to the
minute, the column moved through
the picnic grove and across the face
of the hill on which brigade hend
(juarters are situated and then
'straight as a die towards reservoir
hill, where the tents of the Ninth
and Thirteenth are pitched. The
camp site is an ideal one and is
identically the same as two years
ago. Broad spreading chestnut
trees are scattered through the camp
and the shade furnished by them
will no doubt be gratefully sought!
before the week ends.
Company A, Engineers, is located
near brigade headquarters, having
the really choice location of the
ground, their camp being handy to
the picnic and camp meeting grove,
while the site occupied by the Thir
teenth Is fully a half-mile from these
centers of Interest.
Immediately upon arrival, the
work of llxing up quarters was taken
in hand and by the time morning

Evening parade at 5:30 o'clock
was the only event of the day, the
men being allowed to spend the
time as they saw lit. There was no
band concert owing to the fact that
the band did not accompany the
command to camp, having an engage

on being tested. The slender staff

young prince, the desire of his fath

and hailed as the "King of Rome."
in January, 1S14, Napoleon em
braced his wife and child for the
last time, and this really ended the
reign of the little king "who never
saw his kingdom." He was reared
n the Austrian court under the
name of the Duke of Rclchstadt and
grow to be a handsome young fellow
and quite a brilliant scholar. He
had one short year of military life
and then contracted pulmonary dis
ease, from which he died in his

the memory of his father and al

death, July 22, in his own rooms.

When is the Time to Advertise'
Some merchants have become pos
sessed of the idea that the summer
months are a poor time to advertise,
on account ot' so many people being
out of town. Nothing is farther
from the truth. While a large sec
tion of our people take vacations,
the number of people who go away
for more than two or three weeks is
comparatively small. The great
majority of mechanics and business
men do not get over two weeks' va
cation, and really the number of
stay at homes is still greater, and
the merchant who tells about his
bnrgains will find plenty of people
listening. .Most people have to
make many purchases in the midst
of summer to complete their equip
ment for even two weeks' vacation.
The merchant who keeps his regu
lar space full will get this business.

An Oregon editor once got a big ad
vertisement from a place which sold
nothing but oysters. The place had
just opened, nnd, while the proprietor
was willing to advertise, he didn't have
the cash to spend, so the newspaper
man took n card which entitled him
to $10 worth of oysters. "A few days
later a tramp printer strolled into tho
Gazette office and -wanted a job," re
lates tho editor. "I had nothing to
offer him, but told tho man he might

gave him tho meal ticket on the oys

and entered the service of the govern

He lias letters now from Andrew Jack

bureau at tho time, nnd little was
thought of It. Captain Cooke's ap

who was appointed July 1, 1802. Cooke
went Into the service in 1801, serving

The Jefferson Bible.
A few years ago congress authorized
the publication of a facsimile of Thom
as Jefferson's Bible. Jcll'ersou had
this Bible in the form of a scrap book
In which tho life of the Saviour was set
out from tho Scriptures In chronolog
ical order with especial emphasis as
to the philosophy of life lie enunciated
in his sayings. Tills material was sot
down In parallel columns in the Greek,
Latin and English texts. After the
Drder of congress was carried out the
publishers were given leave to print
iddltional copies, which were put on
Hie market at $2.50 a volume. Recent
ly there has been an overproduction,
and the price is now quoted at $1.23.
A few days ago a constituent of Rep
resentative Walter Brownlow of Ten
nessee heard about the decrease in the
price and rushed in to tell the con
gressman, who had more requests for
tho Bible than he could fill.
"It's going for !?1.25," said the caller.
"Well, what of it?" replied Brownlow.
"I can buy a whole Bible for 25 cents."

Through all of tho clad afternoon,

And cling to his gaudy balloon.
The last acrobat's been applauded
And Bhullled his way from the mat,
Tho last bareback rider's been lauded,
The clown, with his sugar loaf hat,
Has gono with his powder and spangles,
Tho diver has niado his last leap,
And hero In my arms are brown tangles
Of curls and a boy fast asleep.
One sticky hand rests on my shoulder,

Will fade like tlio glad afternoon.

With eouI stirring airs by the band
Till naught of the glnd marvel lingers

" Roman Nomenclature..
The noble Romans were peculiar
in their system f nomenclature. They
had the praenomcn, the nomen and
the cognomen. The first of theso
distinguished the individual and was
equivalent to our Christian or baptis
mal name. It was usually Indicated
by a single letter, as A. for Aulus. or
by two letterj, as Ap. for Applus, or
three, as Ser. for Servius. The nomen
was distinctive of the gens or clan,
and has no corresponding appella
tive among us. The cognomen was
placed last, and designated the fnml
liao, precisely answering to our t-ur-name.
Sometimes a fourth name -vas
added, the agnomen, In consequence
of a renowned action, some conspicu
ous event of life or feature of charac
ter. Sclplo, In addition to his regular
names, was styled Afrlcanus after his
conquest of Carthago. The name
Germanicus was assumed by those'
who distinguished themselves in the
wars with tho Germans.
Chief Protucer of Insanity.
Dr. rederlcl Peterson, of New
York City, in an address beforo the
New York Conference of Charities
and Correction, declared "Alcohol Is
the chief poison factor in the produc
tion of insanity. Twenty per cent, of
all the insane in the United States
owe their condition to alcoholic pois
on." Dr. McDonald calculates that
one insane person is an approximate
loss to tho state of MOO per year,
hence the actual loss to the Unltod
States is $12,000,000 per year.
An Awful Revelation.
In Chicago, in ono dny, 1,408 per
sons were Imprisoned for drunkenness
Of theso there wero forty-one cases of
delirium tremens. It is reported that
a physician connected with the prison
secured somo of tho liquor. Ho pour
