The Beeiment' First Adventure Was a Test of Horseflesh After That It Carved Ite Way Across Virginia Several Times. "Grimes" Davis Death. ICopyright, 1S95, by American Press Association. Book rights reserved. UBING the spring and early summer of 1862 a body of men known as the Eighth New York cavalry was hanging around the camps on the Potomac, now at Washington, again at Harper's Ferry and for a brief time at Winchester, waiting for something to turn up. Not that they could not find employment, but the kind of fered was not to their liking. They had enlisted in 1861 for cavalry service, but the government had failed to pnt them on horseback. . It had armed them with sabers, and these they clung to as a badge of distinction and an earnest of the future. During the winter months and between the hours of lalxir on the fortifications the men practiced handling the savage weapons until they became expert. In that way if in no other they hoped to win the favor of the. authorities. Finally, in July, the horses came and with them a leader worthy of a regiment ambitious to carve a name with the sword. An officer of the Fifth United States cavalry, Benjamin F. Davis, was appointed coloneL Davis had served in the roughest cavalry school in the world, on the plains of New Mexico, against the Apaches. He was a southerner by birth and stuck to the flag from principle; hence there would be no child's play about the warfare he would wage upon his old friends. For a man in such a case there is nothing to do but win or die in trying. Davis had good stuff to work on in the Eighth New York The men were villagers from the agricultural counties of the northwestern part of the state. Bred to life on the farm they had grown weary of the monotonous routine and longed for new Worlds to conquer. The war and Davis gave them a chance. Among the cadets at West Point and in the regular army Davis had been known as "Grimes." With their new colonel, their fresh horses, splendid bays and blacks matched in companies, and their sabers bright, the New Yorkers set out again for Harper's Ferry ready for battle. After skirmishing with the enemy on the Virginia shore they were ordered one day to pitch their tents inside the lines of the post, and the next that they knew the place was surrounded by Stonewall Jackson, and the commandant, Colonel Dixon S. Miles, refused to fight or to evacuate. Fighting mad before, the boys patted their good steeds upon their sleek flanks and murmured, "What are we here for but to strike or gallop away ready to strike some other day?" Davis and a brother officer of the same name, colonel of the Twelfth Illinois, laid their heads together and devised a scheme to put tbeir horseflesh to good use and save their men from the clutches of Stonewall. After a volume of talk, interspersed with hot words, Miles gave the order for the cavalry to move out. It started at dark on the evening of Sept 14, about 12 hours before Miles surrendered the place without a blow. The attempt to escape from Harper's Ferry at that hour was a bold one. The Confederates lined the Virginia and Maryland shores north and south. Jackson meant to end the business next day, for he had other work on hand. The way out, if any, would be across Maryland, but the main army of Lee was at that moment stretching its lines parallel with the river from South Mountain to Sbarpsburg, really constituting a second line to be passed. No one in Harper's Ferry could tell where the nearest Union troops were to be met with, so it was taking a plunge in the dark. And the darkness it was that made the plunge successf uL The column crossed the Potomac on a pontoon bridge, riding in twos with the Davises at the head of the leading files. Once on the Maryland shore the horses were spurred to a gallop and off went the cavalcade a la Gilpin. Striking the Sharpsburg road, the horsemen dashed ahead in the darkness, riding parallel to the line of Longstreet's Confederate corps, which, pivoted on the river at Harper's Ferry, was shutting to, like a gate. At times the bivouac fires of the enemy glowed by the roadside, and more than once the riders galloped between the pickets and the sleeping camps. At the end of a few miles the head of column struck a barricade in the road, but brushed it away in a twinkling, cutting down some of its guard and carrying others along as prisoners. Farther along a Confederate train of 100 wagons was encountered, moving under a cavalry escort. By assuming a disguise "Grimes" Davis tricked the head teamster into turning off the road, and all the others followed suit. Calling up his own troopers, he placed them in charge of the train and started it on the road to Pennsylvania. Meanwhile the Twelfth Illinois amused the train escort until the prize was out of reach, then galloped on after it. The wagons contained ammunition and some stowaway freight in the shape of stragglers who had crawled into them to ride. Davis' orders to his men were to burn every wagon that broke down and lose no time over it. Several broke down and were fired, with frightful consequences, un til the stowaways took alarm. One of the first victims was a New York cavalryman. His determination to get out of the wilderness that night led to experiences that would bring a blush of jealousy to the cheek of Baron Mun-, chausen. They are vouched for by his captain. While climbing up Maryland heights in the darkness Private Louck of Company I lost his horse by a misstep, both steed and rider rolling down an embankment. Louck was badly bruised, and his comrades told him to go to a farmhouse and surrender to the first chance. About an hour later the galloping riders floundered through a mudhole, where many of the horses tripped or fell from exhaustion. Among those who emerged, covered with mud, was Louck. He had found a led horse in the column and rode on after hia company. In crossing a creek there was another catastrophe, and several horses took a bath with their riders on their backs. Louck came out of the tangle i washed clean, bftt again minus MTJNYON'S Rheumatism Cure never fails to relieve in three hours and cure in tbree davs. MUXYOS'S Dyspepsia Cure is guaranteed to correct constipation and cure ail forms of indigestion and stomach trouble.

The first wagon that was fired contained shells, and speedily a mass of debris was hurled out at the rear end. Louck was picked up shorn cf his hair, whiskers and eyebrows, and his comrades took him to a house and left him, as they supposed, on the verge of death". When the column arrived at Greencastle, SO miles from Harper's Ferry, Louck crawled into the bivouac. "Captain," said he, "I was killed once touight by being thrown Over a mountain, drowned twice, blown up and killed, but here I am. " Davis was promoted to lead a brigade as a reward for his daring exploit. He had as yet never brought his men under fire or to cross sabers with the enemy, but they continued under his command, and a chance soon came to try their fighting powers. On the march to Fredericksburg in November, 1863, the bri gade skirmished all along the gaps of the Blue Ridge with Stuart's best troopers. At Barber's Crossroads, on the 5tb, Stuart's rear guard, under Rosser and Hampton, deployed lines and planted cannon to dispute the road. Davis kept the Eighth New York around him, and dismounting one squadron behind a stone wall led the rest to within 80 or 40 rods of a battery, drawing its fire and testing the coolness of his men. They stood it well, but confessed that they would rather charge the cannon and be done with it. They might have had their wish but for the First North Carolina cavalry. The Carolinians took the initiative and charged in column of squadrons. Davis led his horsemen back as though retreating and let his dismounted men use their carbines upon the enemy. Taken by surprise, the Carolinians drew back, and at that moment Davis brought the Eighth around a hill on a curve and dashed into the mass of WORK THEY ENLISTED FOR. the enemy. Then it was cut and slash on both side3. The columns being under headway, the opposing files closed together like the fingers of hands when' interlaced. It was the hour for sabers, and fiercely the boys wielded them. The days for cavalry fighting in the eastern army had not yet arrived, but when they did the Eighth was ready. Davis led it in person in the encounter deservedly called the first real cavalry-battle of the -war. It was at Beverly Ford and Brandy Station, June 9, 18C3. At dawn that day Davis took the Eighth across the Rappahannock at Beverly Ford. A strong picket of the Sixth Virginia cavalry met the column at a point where one man should equal ten. Tlie narrow road passed through a swamp and was ditched on both sides, so that only four horsemen could pass abreast. The picket was driven back to a strip oif woods where lay supporting squadrons that rapidly moved down upon the head of Davis' column, Davis rode in front, and the enemy was checked without a close collision. A lieutenant of the Sixth Virginia lingered behind his retreating comrades, and seeing Davis alone dashed down the road upon him. The lieutenant carried a revolver, but only one barrel was loaded, and he saved his fire until he closed in within reach of Davis' saber. Parrying a blow iTom that, he shot Davis dead. Virgiians and New Yorkers then rushed together and fought like tigers. A Virginian who came to the aid of the lieutenant was killed beside the body of Davis, and their bleeding forms led to a struggle for vengeance. From a handful the enraged combatants increased to squadrons , then to regiments and brigades, both the blue and the gray winning and losing the ground many times. The Eighth lost 17 killed outright and 20 wounded. The Eighth rode in Buford's division, and after a battle at every gap of the Blue Ridge with Stuart got into the opening skirmish at Gettysburg. From that time on there was no rest for the fetrong right arms of the New Yorkers. They fought 15 battles between July and December, 1863. Wilson becamo their division leader in the campaign of the Wilderness and afterward Custer. That was the year for raids and saber fights. Twenty -one battles are inscribed on the flag for 1864, among them Yellow Tavern, whero Stuart was killed, and Hawes Shop, a bloody affair like Beverly Ford. With Wilson the New Yorkers rode 100 miles into the enemy's i VNLY pure grape cream of tartar is I used in Royal Baking Powder. Un- -like other powders, Royal leaves no acid g or alkali in the food. J lines at Petersburg and fought four pitched battles in seven days ; then to the valley with Sheridan and Custer; nine battles, including Gedar Creek and Winchester in the valley, and then the raid through to Petersburg. At Five Forks the New Yorkers made their last grand charge. They put their horses to the breastworks like racers at a hurdle. The color bearer was shot dead, closing the roll of honor of an even 100 killed in battU on 40 bloody fields. George L. Kilmer. THE BONNIE BLUE FLAG'S" ORIGIN. It Was the Work of an Irish Comedian and Mrs. Chambers-Ketchnm. Mrs. Annie Chambers-Ketchum, the author of the generally accepted words of k The Bonnie Blue Flag, " one of the favorite war songs of the Southern Confederacy, is still living in New York, where she is beloved and honored by a large circle of southern friends. The 6tory of the origin of the famous song is a very interesting one. As in the case of "The Star Spangled Banner" and " Amesica" the tune is a borrowed one. It was composed about a century ago, and words entitled "The Irish Jaunting Car," a vehicle run by one Larry Doolan, "a native of the sile," were sung to it for many years. At the beginning of the civil war an Irish comedian named, Harry McCarthy sang the song in some convivial resort in the south and at the request of one of his audience composed war verses for the tune and called the effort "The Bonnie Blue Flag." Bandmaster Woll of the Louisiana Tigers arranged the song for his band, and it was soon very popular in the southern army. The lines were very crude, however, and to MRS. ANNIE CHAMBERS-KETCHUM. i863 Sir Henry Percy Anderson of the British legation while on a visit to Memphis met Mrs. Annie Chambers-Kotcbum, who had considerable local reputation as a poet, and persuaded hor to rewrite the words of the song and give them a finish and polish that thoy lacked. She did so, and her version speedily took the place of the old one in the southern camps. When the Federal authorities learned of this fact, Mrs. Ketchum was given the alternative of taking the oath of allegiance or leaving Memphis. As her husband was fighting in the Confederate army she decided to leave Memphis. Mrs. Ketchum 's father was Major Benjamin Stuart Chambers, an English soldier, who located in Kentucky and was appointed receiver of public moneys for Arkansas bv President Jackson in 1883 At the ageot 18 Annie married her cousin, but was soon left a widow with two small children. She did notable work as an educator in the Memphis public schools and in 1858 married Leonidas Ketchum, who was fatally wounded at Shiloh. lu 1867 the death of her 16-year-old boy from Asiatic cholera was a terrible blow to her, and she lived abroad for years. She hag lectured, written several novels and is the author of a very meritorious book on botany. She has become a Roman Catholic and a Dominican, and her religious name is Sister Amabilis. How He Uave ITp Cigarettes. "Did I ever tell you how I managed to euro myself of the cigarette habit?" asked a cholly the other day. I told him he had never explained the mystery to me, and that I had spent many sleepless nights in consequence. "Now you are joking," ho said, with his neat little lisp, "but really, on the extremely deceased, I have stopped it entirely, and it was tho easiest thing in the world. I used to smoke fi?m four to five packages a day and sometimes more. One day I made up my mind that I would quit. I do not mean that I would quit smoking, but I meant that I would stop buying them. I smoked those of my friends. Final! it became a bore to mv friends to have me always asking for cigarettes, and they sometimes said they didn't have them. Thus my charity Bmokes gradually became quite seldom. Finally there was not a young fellow who knew me who would give me a cigarette. By that time I had about got rid of the habit. One day I felt like I would enjoy one, and I bought a package before I thought, lit one, and it actually tasted so badly that I threw it and the package away. Since then 1 have never smoked. I do not use tobacco m any form. You may give this recipe to vour friends if you desire. It cured me and did the job quickly and eff ective-lv. ' Louisville Commercial. . A Good Keason.

The hew amateur single scull champion of America is W. S. McDowell of Chicago, who captured the honor at the recent regatta of the National Association of Amateur Oarsmen in Saratoga. McDowell defeated J. A. Bumohr, the famous oarsman ot the Toronto Rowing club of Toronto. McDowell came to America from the north of Ireland eight years ago. - He had rowed m his native land to some extent, and soon utter making Chicago his home applied to Secretary Essig for membership In the Iroquois Boat club and soon became a mem- w. s. m'dowell. ber. In 1888 McDowell entered the junior single scull race at Grand Rapids in the northwestern regatta, and though he showed faster than any of his six competitors he lost the race by bad steering. In 1889 McDowell visited Pullman and rowed with John Corbett, then the American champion. Here he recoived the first thorough instruction, which stood by him in later years. This same year McDowell won the senior single at Grand Rapids and then visited Pullman, whert the National and Mississippi Valley associations were holding a joint regatta. He won the Mississippi senior singles and also won his heat in the National's event, but was defeated in the final by Dennis Donahoe, who also defeated Corbett. In 1890 McDowell won the Chioago navy senior single and rowed as No. 5 in tho famous Iroquois barge crew of that year, which repeatedly beat all competitors. For three years McDowell did little or nothing. In 1892 he rowed as a representative of the Farragut club in the People's regatta In Philadelphia and also in the National association's regatta. He was beaten. The year 1893 found McDowell back with the Iroquois club again, and he won the senior singles in the international regatta at Lake Geneva. He lest the "free for all" after having won two heats. The same year in Detroit, in the national regatta, he won a heat and lost the final. McDowell rowed last year for the Delaware club, but was not successful. This year, for the same club, he won the People's regatta July 4 in Philadelphia, and by his victory at Saratoga seoured the championship of the United States, which in 1894 was captured by Ferdinand Koenig of Louis, in 1893 and 1893 by John J. Rjm of Toronto, and in 1891 by William Caffrey of Lawrence, Mass. According to the Chicago Tribune, it is the height of McDowell's desire to compete at Henley. He is nervy and will go against anything and is not in the least downcast by defeat. WYLLIE, THE HERD LADDIE. Scotland's Great Checker Player Still Expert at the Age of Seventy-six. Sixty years a champion is the remark able record ol James Wyllie, the most famous checker player in the world. Wyllie was champion of the town of Kilmarnock, Scotland, when but 15 years of age, and by virtue of his marvelous " record against tlie best james wyixib. players all over the world, for half a century he may quite reasonably be called the greatest player on earth. Wyllie is now 76 years old and very deaf, but his sight is still keen, and he is yet able to defeat nearly every man he meets. "I'm too auld for draughts," he says sadly, but he usually manages to win whenever the stakes are worth securing, Wyllie was born in the Pierce Hill barracks, near Edinburgh, in 1820, and at the time of his birth his father was a sergeant major in the Scots Guards. As a mere lad Wyllie was apprenticed to a Kilmarnock weaver, but his remarkable skill as a checker player made him famous and induced him to abandon learning the weaver's trade. A drover named Porteus whom young Wyllie had beaten took Wyllie to Edinburgh and surprised the natives. Porteus began a game with a local player of reputation named Bertram and then found an excuse to drop out of the contest. "Let my herd laddie play for me," he said. Bertram consented, and to bin amazement the herd laddie won Cf games out of 60, and Bertram only succeeded in securing a single draw. The story of this achievement gave Wyllie great local fame, which was increased when he defeated Professor Andrew An derson and Robert Martins, two great Scotch players. Wyllie then became a watch peddler and traveled about Scotland selling timepieces as a regular business and playing checkers for money against all comers. "A shullen a game" was hid price no matter who played against him, and when he first visited America in 1873 he charged his opponents 2" cents a ganie. During this tour he played over 11,000 games, losing less than 50. In 1881 he again visited America and won 17,654 out of 19,517 games, drew 1,754 and lost only 109. In match games he defeated C. F. Barker, the celebrated Boston expert, but was beaten by Clarence A. Freeman, the Providence expert, who is of Indian descent, and the late R. D. Yates of Brooklyn. Wyllie also played throughout England and Australia and has made a great deal of money as the result of his skill. Wyllie claimed to bo the champion of the world until about a year ago, when he was beaten by a young Scotch expert, James Ferrie. Human Nature.
