A GOOD STORY, One of the good results of the war with Spain and the conflicts which foliowe<l In the Philippines and in jbhina. was the multitude of fine Btbrie? jit brought us of the daring ajid courage and' fortitude arid ready resources of the soldiers of America. A new;,one of.-these stones has but recently been iSublished, and it illustrate well' the splendid audacity of tie average American volunteer. ^ It" appears that a short time after the klH^ had entered Pekin a mule Btrayea away from the American quar- ,terma^ter and Private'^Jmile Gener- eaiiii; bf the Ninth Infantry, was sent iCWLt"^ hunt him. J^rocieedlng upon tite" djuty Private Genereaux left .the .beateii trail between Pekiii and the sea coast and Bet out across Country looking for that mule. j • had crojssed about five miles or mpre of fleld^, when, on rounding the crest of a low-lylngjilll. h,e four^l hlm- ;Belf fronting: a NCWnese! village of some 6,000 InbabHants. j The whole la>Y>ut.w^B surrounded by a stdno wall of' the regulation Phlnese forbidding ABpOCtj ! •] • !rhin |clQg only pf thq ;nulc, Geher- fi^iiz.pushed through the gate and, up io 'iha mandarin's house, in the t^iid-. lUe ^pf 'th <9 .This was' a lowj him brick wall. From its eaves flew the ycllpw dragon banner. For the moment he forgot the mule as he rushed forward to uer.r it down. There wa."? a crov.-d of jChinese in the streets. For a reason which he did not understand ur.til later, they kept their hands off liim as ho took his army revolver in bis right hand and with his left tore ilown the yc-ilow Hag. He descended to the little yard be- fnre the residence, and there, roounlod bc.iidc the gnfo. V ;as a machine gun aurroiir.dnd with boxc^' of ready ammunition. Near by were several rifl-ns nnd sv.-ords. .\;'>-ari;i." ii-'t Ir) nnfiro tlic gun, tJi"" V:i:i'.<ct; ."^oldi'T wn!l;(Nl oul.c.ii'o th'' wall t') a Iior.-;o wliirli sKi .jd fi-itcncd a little Chinese cart. Ti'f -n ho (icUboratcly took the hnrse's head., led the rig to the gun nnd bf>pan to load if Into the wagon. On top of that ho threw four boxes of ammunltidn. the captured standard two Winchester rifles, one SprlngfieM a Mauser and a Chinese bu.^le. And all before the watching Chinese could catch their breath. But, as he swung into the cart they recovered and rushed him. He had only six cartridges and those in the chambers of.his revolver, "and I sdving them until the fighting com menced," says Genereaux.' But nearby lay a hardwood club as big as a man's arm. He seized that, vaulted into the cart, tOvOk the reins, dealt the horse a blow and broke through the astonished Chinese, beating them right and left away from the horse's head Outside thie wall of the mandarin's house he met a horde of Chinese. He set up the American yell and swung his club as a lumberman ^wings an ax. With e^ch blow a, Chinese went down.stunned. He thinks 1 now that his yel§ saved his life. The Chinese thought that he w<is shouting to some one outside the Wall, and so hesitated to shoot. His enemies massed at the gate; but: the horse, maddlined by blows, plunged through and over them and dowp the well-kept roadway.: And then the Chinese saw their mis talce—saw that there was no supporting force outside, only ono American soldier, who bad beaten them all. They rushed to their rifles, and the next moment Genereaux, beating his horse down the road, heard the "slzz" of bullets about his ears. But ho had a big.start already; aud bis good luck and poor Chinese shooting, brought him through untouched. A half-mile down the road'he stoppW to wave his army hat to his baffled enemies. He had not used even one of his six shots. It was late in the afternoon v,-hen Private Genereaux and his confiscated assortment of articles of war reached the lines of the Tenth- Royal Bengal Lancers, and the dare-devil soldier immediately reported to the your..^ Enn;Ii3h lieutenant commanding the post. V.'hon he told his story that p.r- ficcr l.')0!:oJ at him in silent amazement for a scc.-;:;d and thoa chouied out: "Sr.y, r.rc there any more at ho?ho !ii;p yn;:?" and ho added. "If you v.-cro in our -s-rrvirc : r/.;'d en;l as a major I'Tonc-ral or a dead rlan." "Yc^?-. pir." .".aid nnnorr.iiix. !>aliilir.:.:.

T!io Lancers had boon asked to report if they saw anything of the missing private from the Ninth. They reported that they had found not only the private, but a machine gun, .t wagonload of ammunition and sundry properties of the enemy,' all captured by him. With it, they reported the matter to the credit of Private Genereaux. Back came the order from Chaffee: "Send on man and gim." It was a long story, but the short of it Is that when asked to name his reward Private Genereaux .said he would "kind of like to have the old gun." And so Gen. Chaffee cut yards of red tape and Emil Genereaux, private, will hand down to his posterity a Gardner rapid fire gun, capaiile of firing 200 shots .1 minute, which he took single handed out of a waljcd city', guarded by five thousand men A New Road Grader. the dirt from the plow is carric^d tea; j-oad might te made at trifling ex- r„„- fi,„* K„ ,..„..fjg feet ponse that would bear Ioa,ds the year feet away, so that by startia article represents a new road machine,can be deposited in the m which has recently been mycnted and and by coniiaains on eac h su.'c thd?: four horses.
