How He Got His Promotion Bv F. A. MITCHEL "I must set a message through to General N.," said General B. of the Japanese army to his staff during the ·vrar between Uussia and Japan. "Can no one of you suggest some device by ·which 1 may do so - ? -T'have seat five couriers, and every one of them has been shot." ' " x "Had we a balloon, general," said ·5 one, "we might succeed." 'A balloon would be riddled," replied tne genera!. '·Has any one tried to so through in · the night:" asked another. \ · "Yes, and failed. It is more diflBculc to pass at iiigist than la the day time. In addition to running the risk of getting shot, n courier would almost surely be lost in tlie darkness." "I will tarry your message, general," said Lieutenant Kataura, a five foot youngster weighing some ninety pounds. "By what mesas*:** "Horse." "Eorsel Most of our couriers have tried to get throt:g!i :n. that Tray." "They have not ":nwn now to be carried through mi *'!ieniy*s camp by a | horse. I SKI an esju».-ir!an-" j "And Uovr will Y..U r!«.le":" ] "la :i way to avoid the observation j of the enemy."' j -Wei!, yon may go inside the horse ii you can get my Kie?--;tge through." "I have not yc-t decided just bow I Trill ride. You know that the American Ia«l«!KS rule on one side of the horse, holding on by one hand and by one foot I f I '-ould keep my c-nc-niy on my Sank this plan cii^hc serve, bur I i-3. liable to be sisot at from both sides, { «ive me y^ur message, general, and ·when vou see me scare you will know all aboac it. I have great hopes of sac- cess."' ""When will you start?" '·Tomorrow morning just before" reveille- it wl*! be after the hour when night attacks are ezpected and when the men ercepc the guards are asleep." The genera* gave orders that he should bo caliefl in tirae to see his aid start. In the inorning when he went oat before his tc::t he saw a horse standing there -with no rider. But under the horses belly was little Kamura. face downward, strapped to the animal with bttnds that cenled by the horse's his aid success, waited for tlie start. Oil Kaiuuru'^ heels were spurs with sharp rowels, and'he was free to kick with the lower .part of his legs. A slight touch started the horse, and he made off. guided by the man under him. for the enemy's lines- lie had chosea an opportune time The guards alone "vrere awake. Ka- xiiura rode between tvro of them into the camp. Seeing a riderless horse coming, both these men ran aside to catch him, but by Kamura's skillful management and a liberal supply of spur the horse eluded them. So far so good. Kamura guided the animal dowa a road with tents on, either side. Here and there a man up and out before reveille saw a rider- less horse corning through the camp, i and some of those who were near tried! | to catch him. Bat it is not easy to i caicb a horse that does not wish to 1 be caanhr. and when he has a guide i provided with spurs it is much more i ilitSetili. Kaajsira ran ^the gaatlet to ! il:3 sentry line c-c the opposite side of the cauip, where more efforts were ·c::de to catch hi;y. A cavalryman :rave chase, but the _-oarir had the ·K-«i-st horse that could tc- fovad :a the Japanese army, asul OH his heels were the sharpest spurs. He distanced his pursuer. :t5id wh«; o:iie ti::;e later be rode up iv the Jap::u-^e lines the horse's Hanks were tlrippiuir blood. The Japanese Were as surprised as the Ilassiaus. They .-au^Ut a wild horse «£!«! were congratulating, se'ves 0:1 ib-.-ir "trize when a s THE GRANGE Conducted by J. W. 0ARSOW. ChaUbim. N. Y.. Editor cf 'Jvs yew fork. State GRANGE REPRESENTATION.

At a 'ectnrer's conference not long ago the Question was asked, "What is your grange do:ag in the line of community servlcer" Of the uozea or more granges represented sot one could rei-ort doiiig c-r having done any distinctive service for the community where located. Several said there did :»yr s^ai :o be auythlag ibey cou'd Uo. and others had eaoujrtt to ao m fceepinsc themselves in good running condition. But surely the grange that conJiues ali its efforts to improving its members" condition, irrespective of others outside its gates, is not fulfilling its entire mission. The grange that serves^ its community,best serves itself best, and the good deed done for other* reacts upon it for Us own good- Ask those who have performed some altruistic service for their if this is uot so. Stock raisers of "Wisconsin are i warce-d against allowing their- young cattle to ru:i in pastures where, they will have access to acorns. The eating of these is assigned as the cause of a number of cases of poisoning that ftave been reported to the state veterinarian. In case of acora poisoning a half pint of 1'nseed oil with strong coffee is re-ouiHiended, and to this ar iue^tcd fiiar a pint of nolasses be adCesl.
