That nerve destroying malady, when once It takes firm foot, subverts every function, exhausts the physical energies, impoverishes the blood and clouds the mental faculties.

But warnings nnd reproofs wen: ot nonva.il, and t.lio old soldier wus finally eourt- nui.r1inli.Tl, The- pvnoral charge was "conduct unbecoming an officer a.iul a gentk'mau," and the specifications iiartictilari/.ed the times ;ind o<:c::;sions when the veteran had od'endc-d beeause of his weak- Boss -in that one particular. He was neve.r iiuuitsud of disobedience of. orders, or ol'.sni.y other br»neh of discipline. En!., as he grew older, the habit grew stronger until he was apparently unable to control his appetite, and so he was court-martialed. His defense was well conducted, but he was convicted on every count, and the findings of the court-martial wen: approved by his immediate superior and forwarded .to Washington, where the senior general of the iirmy approved them; and the secretary o£ war forwarded the entire case to the white house for the. approval of President Jackson. \Vhen the papers were returned to the war d.epartmeju, witli the emphatic disnppTOv.il of the president, there Was consternation in army circles, and the secretary of war went, to tlie white house to protest, lie said: "Mr. President, 1 realise that no one has a. rig-lit TO C|iiest.ion your notion in nny ease, for, under the constitution, you are tlvi commander in chief of the army and navy. But, after I hail carefully examined the case of Col.

DAVID STANLEY, partment, including your secretary of war. I would like to know, -if you do •rot object, what- reasons you bad for such action in this case," : Gen. Jackson replied: "Of course, Jlr., Secretary, you have no rigiht. to question zny action in any case. But-as you hav« respectfully asked for my reason, I will 'g-ive it to you. The hubitof strong drink comes to nearly every man who serves his country in actual warfare. Those who. escape are exceptions to the rule. I am an old soldier myself, and ,-vm inclined .to look with great leniency upon the .weaknesses of men whom I have known as soldiers in actual field servicu: Old Col. Blank served undcY me in the Seminole war and was with me at New Oilcans. .1 ea-w him render service of svch merit that his country ought never to disgrace or degrade him. Con- 'eequently, so long as. I am president, "I shall .emphatically disapprove any ef- ifort which may be made to dismiss him or any other good, soldier from the army in disgrace. In fact, I believe tha.t a man who has risked his life repeatedly, end rendered .gallant service where bullets and cannon balls were, flying, has earned a right to get as drunk as he pleases. I will relieve Col. Blank of 3uty, and have him placed on waiting orders." Andrew Jackson was an extreme man. He hated his enemies, and he hated thu enemies of his country. He. loved his friends, and he loved all of- .his" old 'soldiers. He would defend them, even when they were wrong 1 . That in ' o say, he would protect them, and make all (charitable allowances for them. It was fie intensity of hisradiaal nature which led him to say uhat a gallant soldier on 'the battlefield earned the right to get drunk. Very few would agree with him in this day and age, when the temper- nnce sentiment is overspreading the; Hand. • ' | In those days pensions were not liberally bestowed, and the old soldiers, in times of peace; were ke.pt on the pay. roll and-cared for as though on actual, duty"./.Nowadays things are different. 'Disabled 'soldiers receive pensions, and 'old soldiers who 'are- unable, to -care. lor themsfclveB are given food, shelter and raiment in, the soldiers' homes. The-deserving officers of the regular army are placed on th'e, retired'list, and; have, ample,incomes from the government to .support them. •'.;,-, . No king 1 , prince or'potentate has. a better home even in his prime than the old soldiers ot the regular army have Jo the national soldiers' home on the nei&hte' north of the national.capital. ,The home IB situated in'-*,pork nearly two alien »qv>art, and'/the ground* are <•." tin; middle ages; and the home itself i.i a perfect palace for the old cnrn- iia'.Lj-ners. Visitors to llii.s eity always drive there ami their trip through the parl; is always one of their most pleas- nut raeuories of their sojourn here. The veterans lounge about the park with Micir pipes, cigars or plugs of tobacco in evidence, and they have practically nothing to do but. eat, sleep and tnke life e:usy until the close of their careers. They have a library, a chapel, nnd a cnnteen. The electric cars now run right to the gntes of the home, and they do not have to tramp aJong the dusty roads when they come to town. On pension day, when the quarterly pensions are paid to the veterans, th«y tome to town and many of. them indulge too freely in liquor and are tnkcn to station houses and locked up over night. The police court judge re- SOLDIERS 1 HOME THEATER, tently dismissed a couple of cases of this kind, saying: "Tbe police of this city know that these old soldiers arc not vagabonds. They-have a home, and all of tbe policemen know where it is. Any well-dressed department clerk taken in au intoxicated condition will be sent to his home in a cab. Hereafter I wish that when these old soldiers fall by the.wayside the policeman discovering them would call an ambulance and send them to their home.'' That is good common sense, and emanaites from a spirit of charitableness somewhatlike the spirit which animated Andrew Jackson, when, he stood between his old comrade and dismissal from the army. - There is no reason why these old soldiers who have this weakness should be locked up add dragged before a police court,, when our dudes and lordlings a.re tenderly cared for. Evc.ryth.ing 1 that can be done is being- done to add to the attractions of the soldiers' home, and now they are to have a theater for the purpose of keep- ins 1 them home and amusing them at nig-M, The building is of marble exterior and is almost, completed. It is next 10 the library building, and opposite 'to Scott hall, a building named after Gen. WinfieJd Scott, the founder of the home. The new theater will be spacious enough for the purpose indicated. It is 325 feet long- from front door to rear o-f stage, and is 67 feet wide. The foun- datiohs are of granite surmounted by roughly finished sandstone, and the entire building faced with Vermont white marble from Senator Proctor's quarries. The main entrance is to be an ornamental archway and pprtico of Cuia.na mnrble. , ' . The stage is to.be GO feet wide and 25 deep, with a proscenium opening of :<2 feet, allowing plenty of room, in i-li<; .winjrs for st;i£e app;:ra.lus. 'Inasmuch as the stage is-the. n-.ost important feature of'any playhouse, it will be observed tha.t the architect has devoted an unusual amount of space to this feature of the new theater. On the right bond side of the proscenium on ihe stage, an electric light, switchboard is to be placed, and, an. operator nt this, point will have charge of all the lights in the house, as well a* 011 the s!-cfe*e. Handsome scenery of ttie "iip-to-dale" variety is being prepared, and everv- thinpr correlative done to make this theater for the>oId.soMiCLrs.one of the finest and most-complete in the country. Six dressing-rooms ore being 1 comfortably fitted up for the convenience of the actors, and they are all beneath the stage. Stairways..from the rear entrance, and also from the auditorium, lead to these dressing-rooms, so that they arc quite accessible. . The old soldiers are not to have the privilege of hearing the greatest actors and actresses; at least not this year. They do not go to theaters to criticise or analyze the play, but to be entertained. ' Consequently, they will not demand the finest elocutionary efforts. Under the directions of Gen. David Stanley, who has charge of the soldiers' tucme, somo of the leading amateurs of VVa«hing-ton, young- men and women, w.ho intend to make,a profession,of the :, have'organized what .is known the "Soldiers' Home Dramatic company," ond they arc rehearsing new plays all the time, for the purpose of giving 1 the old soldiers plenty of entertainment next fall and winter. We [lave several amateur dramatic companies in Washington, nearly all of them jeing- composed of high-school graduates. They are intelligent, ambitious, energetic', and capable. ' The old soldiers will witness some superior performances. There will be a. gocd orchestra for the pew theater, and it will not cost anything. The regular soldiers home band,'; which gives such excellent open aJr concerts during the summer, evenings that hundreds of people go from this cityto hear them will form on orchestra,.and the performers on the stringed instru.- 'menta are noiwi'inakingl.preparatians, :for their practice with, the cornetiato nnd other members '• of ; ihe^prop6»ed , orchestra.,, Altogether this new.theater : 1« to',,bc'acreditable. affair, and wHl add much to the enjoyment of the veterans who have served.tb«r.cpuntry,,and-who »re noWjaJustbgi-pft o&tbc: stage-of life, after navinofactedrwell their port*.
