It was at this critical porlod or my cscapo which, when detailed to tho public in my lectures through out tho western States caused un usual commonts by tho press. Somo maintained that it would ho Impos sible for a person In my exhausted condition at that tlmo, consequent on my long 'imprisonment, to pass through tho trying ordeal to which 1 was subjected toy this homo guard who completed my capture at tho time I knocked on tho bottom of that kitchen door, asking for food, then In the last stage of starvation. But tho comrades of tho Grand Army stood by me, and believed. They knew that such atrocities as partici pated upon mo when recaptured (which at this late date, to relate would causo unnecessary contro versy and add but a little to the Interest of 'my story) was common with theso men when upon tho trail of an escaped prisoner of war. I wish my readers to understand I do not charge these persecutions to tho regular enlisted soldier who did his lighting at tho front, wlf,ero you found tho man of courage, but to tho homo guard human vampires dressed In the cloth of the Southern soldier, to which they wero no more entitled than Old Nick would bo to tho sacred robes of Heaven. These scavengers for blood, men who wero void of honor when tho demon of their nature was temporarily van quished and tho spirit of goodness illuminated their soul; men capable to dark deeds who repellod the least suspicion of a thought that tended towards mercy. These wero tho peo ple that trailed and hounded the prisoner of wnr that would daro to break away, and mako an effort for liberty. It was theso vicious agencies that deterred many from making an ef fort to get away from theso pens of pestilence and vermin, knowing from others' experience, who had tried and failed, that there was a slight chance to succeed, but a stronger one to lose one's life. The swamps and tho val leys were often whitened with their bleaching bones. In all due fairness to tho Southern soldier to maintain their escape, the men who fought val iantly at tho front, I must draw tho line and separate them from these merciless whelps that wero placed over prisoners of war, or that hung upon the outskirts of a prison ready to hunt them down. When the Southern Confederacy called its roll of men heartless and merciless and placed them in charge, they could not have selected a more fiendish set had the gates of Hell been opened to them, but all this was sanctioned by a few not all. Six hundred and thirty-five days in their different prisons gave me a thorough knowledge of the class that were upholding their cause. There were scenes and occurrences in my prison life that wero I to tell you of ten minutes' happenings each day, In the way I see them, would discount fiction and qualify you to judge as to their character as soldiers. Oh, you who heard not of this woe, Listen till you hear tho tale. It caused tho man of strength to shrink, it turned tho warrior nale. It made tho youthful hair turn gray, it changed tho youth to old, It mado a skeleton form of some, Whllo thousands it turn cold. It wns qulto an uncertainty to mo mat 1 would over reach Columbia when I overhenrd I Was to bo re taken. Several times they would stop and nrguo tho easiest and most diabolical way to dispose of me Passing through Newberry It seemed to bo tho delight of my captors to completo my torture, they practising tho extent of tholr Ingenuity whllo standing at a well at the outskirts of tho town, refreshing 'themselves but not a drop for tho poor, miser able Yankee. (Readers, I shall draw tho screen again.) One of them started In ndvanco as wo left tho well to procure tho ropo and the crowd. After my first night's exper ience witu them, I did not doubt the cruelties the were capable of, and I think thoy would have carried out their Intentions had tho patrol not been waiting for mo nr some others to take them to Columbia. My heart was gladdened In a mensuro to get out of their hnnds. Tho patrol wero not such had fellows. Yet at that time with prison again staring mo In tho face, I was indifferent as to what they did. My poor suffering body was too far gono to care. Death would have 'been a relief. And when my sentence at tho Col umbia Jail was announced to remain upon the stair steps 24 hours with out food a guard at the top and one at the foot with instructions to run a bayonette through me if I went up or came down. I cnsldered It very magnanimous to what I ex pected and consoled myself with this pleasant surprise. I was soon returned to tho prison from whence I had escaped, and many wero the questions from .my comrades. One especially, how It felt to ho free, and what yore the cnanccs for success. The winter of 'C4 passed, leaving In its prison record a sorrowing tale of woe and want, and death, which I hope never to see chronicled. It is February, 1SG5. There is a new lot of guards on hand. Some thing new Is stirring the prison au thorities. The guards are preparing to leave. 'Where now are they going to take us? Can It be worse? On our way to Charlotte, Captain Wilson, 22 Mass., Boston; Captain D. B. Meany, 12th Penn. Cavalry, 60G Chestnut St.. Philadelphia, Pa.; Durbrow, 81st Ohio; Lieut. Hagen back, Easton, Pa.; Capt. J. F. Robin son, Telurold, Col., of my own regi ment, got our heads together. I am encouraging them. Yes, they are nearly willing to try Liberty. Oh, how sweet tho sound. Look back upon tho dark past. Will you go? My very soul Is aflame with the thought. I have tried It, come with me. There is a possibility of our reaching the union lines in Tennes see. Oh come! Do not stay and dlo. Make an effort. Only a few hundred miles. I appeal to you, my comrades. Liberty! Oh, how sweet! Come! (To be Continued.) MRS. FURMAN FOUND GUIITY. Bcntcnco Suspended nnd Sho Returns to Her Homo nt Mlddlctown. Mrs. Ellen E. Furman, who waa Indicted for forgory In tho second do greo, wns found guilty by tho Jury at Goshen last Monday with a ro commondatlon for, mercy. It will bo romombered that Mrs. I'lirmnn was tho mother of tho boy whoso body Is supposed to havo been tho one found In tho car of hot cin ders, It being olalmod that ho waa murdered and tho body put In tho car by his brothers, although tho brothers wero acquitted by tho grand Jury, their caso novor coming to trial. Tho chargo is that Mrs. Furman forged tho namo of her son, Theo dore, to his pay check from tho O. & W. railroad and collected tho amount duo thereon, about $12.

Howitt Says His System Will Drive Trains Long Distances. Teter Cooper Hewitt of New York, grandson of Peter Cooper, Inventor of the electric lamp that bears his name, nfter several years' work hns invented a vacuum transformer by which It is possible to change an alternating elec trical current into a direct current, by which trains can be operated entirely by electricity with tho tiower station. 200 miles apart. Tho inventor snys that with this di rect current trains can be operated be tween New York nnd Chicniro with only three or four Intervening power Btatlous. while It will be possible to operate them across the coutlnent. Tiie invention has been tested by the Westinghouse couinnnv In Pittsburgh. and these le-.ts. It Is said, give every Inrllpntfnn nf nnnninnMelilnn nil (lint Mr. Hewitt expects, fie has named tne current the "negative reluctance." 1th this new current, he savs. tralnn will be able to make a speed of 100 miles an hour, and Its perfection muy mean the eventual electrification of every railroad in tho United Stntps. On a line from New York to New Or leans probably not more than half c dozen power stations would be needed, while to San Francisco probably not more than fifteen power plants would be required. Mr. Hewitt said he believed his in vention would revolutionize railroad ing in this country when it is fully de veloped. Missing.
