IB9» BY AMERICAN PRtSS ASSOCIATION. CHAPTER I. The day and date is the 21st of July, 1861. The scene is the battleground of first Bull Run, a field made memorable forever. Prom daybreak to high noon the Federal army under McDowell has been moving down on ,the Confederate position selected weeks ago by the generals old in the strategy of -war. On the flanks brigades have grappled in the open fields, regiments have dashed at each other in the forests and thickets. Here a little ground has been gained, there a little lost. It has been the skirmishing •which precedes every battle, locating the enemy, testing his readiness, drawing hie strength and uncovering his designs. The hour is high noon. The Confederate front has been pressed back, the /left wing shattered. Men looking down •on the battlefield from the hills of Centerville have every movement in plain view. At 12 o'clock the battle is won for the Federals. Bee, Baretow and Evans, who have held the Confederate center, have been beaten back by Burnside, Sykes and Porter. They give way slowly and grudgingly, fighting as they break back, and they are trying to rally, when there is a clatter of bayonets being fixed to muskets, and a thousand men rush forward at the double quick. It is the New York Twenty-seventh, and Colonel Sloe u in leads it, the first bayonet charge of the war—"Forward! Forward!" And the wedge drives into the •Confederate center and rolls the frag- jments right and left. ,| The cheering is beard a mile away above the noise of battle. The Federal center moves forward to pursue the shattered enemy, dud couriers ride away with the news, "We have pierced the Confederate center and won the dayl" Behind the flying Confederates is a plateau of 300 acres, comprising two or three farms. There are two or three farmhouses, orchards, meadows, thickets of pine, barren fields. Here is Stonewall Jackson with 5,000 men in reserve. The fragments of brigades, regiments and companies are burled back to the slopes of this plateau to be rallied and reformed behind the reserves. Couriers ride away to Beauregard to ask for more artillery, infantry and cavalry, and while the Federals pause to replenish their cartridge boxes and gird up their loins for a last struggle 6,000 fresh •Confederates are hurrying forward to the plateau. Noon becomes 1 o'clock. The, skirmishers are at work all along tho front of the plateau, but there IB DO fighting. Another hour slips away. The Federals have waited too long. At noon they could have carried the position witb a ruin. At 1 o'clock they would have met with' stubborn rjBiftance, but victory Would have perched on their banners. Now as the Federals are ready to move the Confederate 6,000 have become 10,000, and their 10 pieces of artillery have become 20. , A majority of the troops are fresh and their nerves unshaken, and all are ready for the grapple. Thirteen thousand Federals move against the plateau at different points almost as one man, and the battle opens witb a great crash. Under General 'Jackson's immediate orders are five or •ix regiments. On the right of his line it a Virginia regiment. On th» tight of that regiment is a company front the Shenandoah valley. They have not been in action yet. As the Federals move np to the attack Rickett 1 * Federal battery, supported by a Minnesota rogi- "Ualt, men, haltl Thote who are not ' coward* will follow me/" inent, are in front of Jackson's men.

I It w»e too luto to rally the compui- 80 a whpje, It WHS breaking buck < the reserve, he«4vd by Ua two nnts, but ot the call to" rally about 80 of the men turned and raised a cheer and followed the flag. The sight of the flag and the echo of the cheers put heart Into the beaten regiment. Something like order came out of confusion, and a moment later two-thirds of the regiment were fighting over the guns. Tho other regiments of the brigade moved np, and they came just in time. The First Michigan and Fourteenth New York were charging up to support the Minnesota men and save the guns. And now for the apace of a quarter of an hour 6,000 men fought with bayonet, with clubbed muskets, with whatever weapon they could wound or kill, it was the fight of a mob. It was a mob which want circling round and round the battery long ago disabled by the killing of all its horses. The Thirty- eighth New York, followed by a portion of the Fire Zouaves, went forward yelling and cheering, but they came too late to save all the guns. The Confederate* held the ground and retained three of the pieces. As Jackson rides forward the company from the Shenandoah valley is dragging one of the captured gnns to the rear. '.'Who commands this company?" asked the general, looking in vain for a commissioned officer. The men halted and stared at him, but no one replied. "Where is your captain? Where are your lieutenants?' 1 he demanded. "Can't tell yo', general," answered a private who was bareheaded and coatless, "but the boss we are workin under jest now is that ar' Yankee with the flag!" Jackson was about to speak further when an aid delivered an order, and he rode hurriedly away. There is no more fighting on this front. To the right and left the Federals charge again and again, but always to be beaten back. Did they number twice as many they could not dislodge the Confederates from the plateau. Nature made it for the key of a battlefield. ' It is 8 o'clock, and the fight still rages fiercely. It is 4 o'clock, and the Federals are still battering at the slopes of the plateau. Half an hour later the volleys of musketry suddenly increase in volume, the artillery redoubles its fire, there is wild cheering all along the Confederate front. , Johnston's troops have come up from the valley. He throws them into the battle, and the Federals are driven back. The Confederates push forward in pursuit, and the troopi who were giving way slowly and retiring in good order suddenly become panic stricken. An army panic is like onto nothing else in its foolishness, in its madness, in that feeling of terror which makes servile cowardi of brave men for a few hours. In 80 minutes from the first wild shouts of alarm the highways leading back to Centerville were choked With the shattered, disorganized and fleeing Federal commands. Here and there feeble attempts were made to check the terrified mob, but each effort only increaiad the panic. What wen they fleeing from) Death? If so, almost every man of them had faced death for faoura that d«y without flinching. They faced it now, as terrified men discharged their musket* and threw them into the ditches, ai remnants of cavalry command! daihed into the mass, as fleldpiecei and limber! and caissons, drawn by bone* which wemad to have caught the spirit of terror, turned in from the field! at a mad gallop and rode down every obstruction, Men flee like shadows from a plague, but they know from what they flet. Bushing into the highway!, fighting each other ai they struggled to reach tho van, stumbling, falling, a chill of fear upon every heart, the army which had fought io well and long itreuned into the hamlet of Centerville. Th«r« was no puriuit. There waiu't a brigade in the Confederate army in condition to pursue, nor was the extent of the Federal disaster known to Confederate officers. Here wai a strong politico, and hero it was that troop! who had not been in action were formed acres* the highway leading to Washington tp check the panic stricken thousands. Mounted officer* rode into the mob and ihoutod commands and appeals. The panting fugitives paused for a moment, but it wan not to Hiten, not to obey, not to feel aibaroed of their iUly f«*r*. It was to draw a long breath and then dash at Hit) wall of glistening bayonet!. The wall menaced theiu, the bayonet* pointed ut. their breasts, but with on« mighty surge the living wave dissolved th» wall, hurled it down, flung the fragments to right and left, and the stream of humanity poured on over the bill! and flowod tho faster for it* temporary check. It could not be checked again until it rouuhod the Potomac, north raised regiments the tooth pat brigades into camp and planned a campaign. While the north Waited the eolith potscssed itself of fort after fort. The streets of every city echoed the tread of marching men) every village was aroused by the music of the fife and drum. That generation knew nothing of war. Men fcoked upon the waving flags and rippling banners, the marching volunteers and the holiday attire and said to each ether: l "Then this is war? Men Who have written of war have deceived as. There is no suffering, no wounded, no dead. Let us also join in the march." But historians had not deceived them. They were deceiving themselves. The beginning of war is merriment and feast. The end is marked by thousands of marble headstones bearing the single Word "Unknown"—those and crape and tears and desolation. It is 4 o'clock in the afternoon of one of those never to be forgotten spring days of 1861, remembered now. only by gray haired men and women. The scene is the ancient town of Winchester, in the beautiful Shenandoah valley, the garden spot of the Old Dominion. Under cover of a wooden awning sheltering the front of the old store and postofflce two men are teated at a table borrowed somewhere for the occasion. One of them wears the uniform of a militia captain; the other ia in citizen's dress and has a list of names on a paper before him. Hear what the captain is saying to the men crowding np until they stand six or eight deep before him. "We want 60 more men to fill up this company. Within a week we shall be ordered to the front. We want only young men and good men. Now, then, yon all who want to go to war and eee some fun put your names down on this paper. Yon, there, Steve Bray ton, step op and sign!" "How long shall we an* bo gone, captain?" 'I reckon on CO days." 'Then I'll put down." •And I!" 'And I!" 'Say, captain," called a yonng farmer from the rear rank of the crowd, "can't yo' make the time 80 days? The old man's feelin porely this spring, and CHAPTER II. iiet UB go buck u few weeks and connect tho chain of oventn.

I'd; like to go along with yo' all, but I can't spare over 80 day*. Make it 80 days, and I'll put down." "I don't like to Bay 80," replied the captain as he stood up to look over the crowd. "Yonsee, we'vegottogetthere, wherever it is, and then we've got to have 'a fight or two and march around, and I should reckon on 60 days anyhow. Better com* along. You never did have no inch chance to see fun in all your life before." " Waal, I reckon 10 or 90 day* won't make no great difference anyhow," said the man. And be pushed forward to add bis name to the list. Directly opposite two men sat, looking out of a Mcond story window. They were in the law office of Justin William*, a lifelong citiien of the town and a lawyer of repute. He was a man of 85, but carried hi* age lightly, The oth«r w« a young man of 84, well built and having, a plain but kindly fact. He was Royal Kcnton of Rhode Island, a graduate of law at a prominent university and the junior partner of the law firm of William* & Kenton. They were uncle and nephew, Kenton had oome down about 18 mouth* before. Ai the relative and partner of a prominent citizen he waa treated with cour- teijr. A* a Yankee, freah from Yankee- land, hewai a subject of criticiim, and then waa little heart in the hospitality accorded him. There could not have been. He represented principle! antagonistic to the south. There waa no neutral gronnd in those day*. A man represented not himself, but hi* Motion of country. The opinions of hi* section were considered to be his. A southerner at the north would have been looked upon through the *awe eye* and held responsible to the eaiuo extent. Men liked him u a man, but they detested him a* a Yankee. "Well, I am sorry this trouble ha* fallen upon the country," «aid the old lawyer a* they watched the crowd opposite. "1 have long felt that it must come sooner or later, but 1 hoped it would not be in my day. Nothing can now prevent war." "But everybody appear* to think it will end almost a* toon a* begun," replied Kenton. "They do not stop to reflect," laid the lawyer a* hi* face assumed » more teriou! look. "I am a southerner, and I believe the *outh ha* been fully juiti- fied In her course, but our people are foolinhly underestimating tho strength and temper of the north. They will not lot UB go bocauw we bJuit«r and threaten. If the south secure* u separation, it will have to be won on tho field of battle. It wa! to be, uud it ha* come, but it 1* to be deplored." "If war come*, buuiuesi will have to go," observed Keuton an he looked nbout tho office. "War in horo, and our business hue itlreudy n«d," replied Williams. "Uur- tlul law will *oou bt> proclaimed, and there will be no more une for judged furor* and attorney*. 1 huvo wanted to isk you. for wvurul days what course i-cm moult to unroiie. if it was to be u war of 60 duy», nix months, or ey«« » } ear, we might make certain plans, but it is to be a long and bloody struggle, and this very valley will be a battleground. We may as well close our office today as a mouth hence. Amid euch excitement as this there can be no call for our services," "I APJ a northern man, "said Kenton after a moment's thought. "Yes, they cull yon a Yankee." "I hate cared nothing for politics. There is a great principle herein involved, but our greatest statesmen are divided over it. The south seeks independence from a federation which has become unbearable. The north, or at least a goodly portion of It, denies the right of secession. This coming war is the consequence. I stand on neutral ground." "Yon are neutral today, but you cannot be 80 days hence," said the old lawyer as a troubled look came into his face. "Do you find any neutral men in that crowd down there? Have you heard any neutral talk among our people? It may not be 10 days before you will be put to the test." "What test?" "Of your allegiance to one side or the other. Every young man in our town is hastening to volunteer. I am too old to be taken now, but later on I. may be forced into the ranks. It will be a war in which the south will need her last man. I am not pledged to a southern confederacy, but I am pledged to Virginia. I go with my state. You have come down to cast your lot with us. It is for you to answer whether you are for or against your adopted state. Think it over. If you wish to go north, the routes are still open., If yon wish to remain, you will be asked why you don't volunteer. I do not seek to influence yon. Be guided by your own conscience. Tomorrow we will settle all business matters between us. It may be years before there is any further call for our legal talents in this or any other Virginia town. Military law will BOOU override everything." The old lawyer rose np and passed down stairs on his way home without further remark, leaving Royal Kenton in a brown study, which was interrupted. 10 minutes later by wild cheering on the street. He went down to ascertain the cause, and a man who had just volunteered swung his hat and replied: "Hooray! We uus is .gwine to send fellers right on to captur* Washington and ole Abe Lincoln!" [TO BE CONTINUED.] I FIGHT ON GRAND CHIEF RAMSAY. Considerable Feeling Among the Members Agalnat Carl .Smith of Omaha. DESVKB, May 22.—The ninth annual convention of the Order of Railway Telegraphers of America convened in the Oxford Monday with several hundred delegates present, one-third of whom were ladies. There is considerable feeling among the members against Carl Smith of Omaha for the fight he is making against Grand Cb>f Ramsay, who revoked the charter of the Omaha division a year ago for alleged violation of the constitution. On this account a fight is being made against Ramsay's re-election. The candidates mentioned for grand chief are: Ramsay, Thomas McMahon of Buffalo, A. L. Taylor of Cleveland, A. J. Applegate of Wichita, J. Weatherbee of Vinton, F. E. Gilti- land of Omaha, N. W. Sellers of El Paso. A. D. Thurston, grand editor, will re- *ign to enter the legal profession. It is proposed to create the office of assistant chief. T. M. Pierson of Indianapolis and J. Budd of Colorado are mentioned for the new office. Mayor Van Home welcomed the delegates to Denver. Chief Ramsay responded on behalf of the order. W.P. Daniels, mayor of Cedar Rapids, la., grand secretary of the Order of Railway Conductors, invited the order to hold ita next convention at Cedar Rapid*. ASPARAGUS FOR PROFIT.

If your market price is equally remunerative .for shoots green their entire length, then allow them to grow six or eight inches high and cut at tho ground surface, using n sharp kiiifo for the purpose. In the opinion of some consumers asparagus is more tender and better flavored -when used in this condition than when more of less blanched.' However, the grower must cater to his customers' tastes. Where blanched shoots arc desired, Ohio Farmer advises placing four or five inches of short litter over the rows early iu the spring, innk- WAtBR 8TORAQE FOR THE PUAfN& A SIMPLY CONSTRUCTED BUNCHER. ing sufficiently compact tp exclude light and nir, and nssoouas tho shoots appear through this break tkoin off at the. bottom, of the litter. . ' As the cutting proceeds no thin or misshapen shoots must be left standing, whether for use or not. Any seedKng plants that may spring up must persistently be pulled out to prevent the ground from getting matted with small roots. By not allowing any foliage to grow the larvae of the asparagus beetle have no chance even to exist. These beetles are quite small, but their presence can readily be detected by their activity on tho shoots and the many jet block nits attached. Do not try to cut longer than two mouths at tho furthest. If tho, cutting season is extended, tho following yearls crop is more or less injured, as the plant ia not allowed time to recuperate and lay up stores for the next year's crop. It will be well to sort out the shoots and have them as nearly as possible of a uniform length, making them up in bunches of either' one or twa pounds. If the tops are placed even, it is a simple matter to even the bottoms by cutting. Rubber bands are in every way supe • rior aud should always be used in pref- 'erence to string for'tying the bunches.. They can be hud. at very low rates, and- the time saved in tying as compared with string will more than cover the cost of purchase, not to mention the ifrigttttom that CwfffWIftee A** tlflclnV fAkcit, IteHorvolfH, J)iunrr«*<l Pomli. A Kaunas authority 011 the subject of irrigation* tor tho plains has the following to say ia. the columns of The litigation Farmer : Our prater supplies are of four kinds. The waters running in tho. rivers and streams, the underflow waters of the Valleys, tho sheet waters iu' the plains grit, and lastly tho storm or surplus waters. It will be readily seen that we have an abundance of water to irrigate much of tho plains, but \ve must erect a system of storage by which theso waters may be captured and held for distribution when needed. Not a drop of water should be allowed to rnii eastward into the rain belts from the semiorid strip. The storm waters and- the perennial waters of the streams that are continually escaping should be captured and held in lakes aud reservoirs, and this water should be augmented by tho ground waters, which will have to be elevated to the surface iu various ways. There is plenty of room for lakes on the great plains. Those lakes will have to be located whore they can receive and distribute the most water to the best advantage. This problem will have to be solved by the irrigation engineer. Two , kinds of lakes will be constructed — those , with artificial basins and those with natural basins. There are very' mauy natural basins upon the plains. They are of all sizes and shapes. All these basins should bo speedily filled with water, either by pumping or turning, streams into them. Then we should construct dams across all the creeks and running streams and draws. We would thus have a vast chain of lakes and ponds. Besides these we will have to build artificial basius upou the broad upland plateaus and in the wide valleys of the larger rivers. These basins will be constructed by throwing up dikes or levees aud thus inclosing wide areas to be filled with water by large pumping plants, supplemented by running water from the streams aud melting snows and from storm waters. The direct benefits. to be derived from such a vast system of lakes and ponds, both and small,, upon the climate of the plains will be: very much greater than could have> been dreamed of by those who were instrumental in securing, the timber culture law. A large area in the plains region should be covered by water, and', the state should assist by legislation and- the creation of a state board of engineers.. One Advantage of Sllon. One advantage not to be overlooked' is that in no other way can the corn crop be so economically harvested and both grain and stalks so well prepared, almost regardless of the vicissitudes of". weather, as in placing it when at its-maximum food value promptly iu silo, where, until consumed, it requires no> further care and no further expense. Switchmen to Meet IltoanJally. EVANSVILLE, Ind., Moy 82.—The Switchmen's association are busy amending the constitution and bylaws. One of the changes effected provide* for biennial sessions, instead of annual sessions. Another provides that the grand master, vice grand master and grand secretary and treasurer shall be elected for two years, and that the board of trustees shall consist of three member*, two of whom shall be elected for two years and on* for four yean. Another important change provides for the removal of the headquarters and offices from Chicago to Evansville. Thi* motion was carried by a vote of 86 to 35. Mu»t Employ Only American*. NEW YOUK, May us),—The trades union of New York are determined to insist on the strict enforcement of the new law providing vlmt only American citizens shall bo employed iu all state and municipal departments and on all public works, whether executed by contract 01 otherwise.

Asparagus can bo kept perfectly fresh, and good for several days by placing in a cool room and immersing the bottoms of the shoots in an inch or two of water. For ehippiug short distances it will be-more convenient to use trays, but for long distances boxes a little decper/than. the length of the bunches will be necessary.
