BEAW SCOTS IN BT)IA CHARGE OF THE GALLANT HEKOES AT DARGAI RIDGE. After the Native Column Had It*eii Cnt , to Flew* and the Knclinh R*puUe<l the [" Gordon Hlplil:«ocleni Curried the Hdlclit.

Book rights rL-servra.] GOTLAND'S heroes are not, like the men of ;. another fighting jiraoe, open to tho charge of doing brave battle for all countries hut their own, yet for the sake of the glorious traditions handed down from the fields trodden by a Bruce, a Wallace, a Marmion, •we may wish that the valor displayed by the highlanders in India the other day might make for the glory of old Scotia aad none other. It was an Irish brigade that saved France mt Fontenoy, and Englishmen alone rode with tho Six Hundred into the jaws of death at Balaklava. Tho charge of the highlanders at Dargai ridge will pass into histoiy as a parallel for those two brilliant exploits. Judging frora the good account |;iven of the Gordon highlanders in past wars, •where, as in the Spanish peninsula, they made good their watchword of "steadfast," and in the Indian mutiny •won the synonym "Tigers," America IB to bo congratulated that her sons have never met this kilted clan. The regiment was organized after the close of the Bevolution. There was a Scottish iband at New Orleans, also called highlanders, veterans of the Spanish peninsula, too, and perhaps if Pakenham's entire army had emulated the valor of those brave fellows in charging the cotton bale line when it looked like a, furnace of fire there would be a different story to toll of the last battle of tho war of 1812. As for tho stirring affair at Dargai ridge it did not come about in a chance collision on tho frontier. The British are in force in Afridland in strength of 80,000 troops, with more in reserve, and the Afrids opposing them can mns- ter 75,000 well armed fighting men. But this is not all that makes the up hill •work for Johnny Bull. The whole of Afridland is one stupendous natural fortification. Bidge follows ridge iu quick succession, while tho intervals are broken and impassable for an army. The affair at Dargai ridge was an incident in th" advance of General Lock hart's column toward Sampaghi pass, •which is 7,000 feet above the level. Not only is tho passi by nature a difficult one, ^ .1. Afrids have strengthened it •with earth and stone fortifications. It was the comparatively insignificant pass of Chagm through Dargai ridge •which bronghi; on the encounter where the highlander.s won glory. A column attempted to move through the pass when the Afrids, who had once abandoned the heights of Dargai ridge, on either side rushed to defend it. For three hoars thoy stood the bombardment from the three British batteries and •were not shakcin. Then two British reg- inisnts and one of loyal natives went forward to <r:irn the position. The Afrids opened & terrible long range fire especially upon, the natives—Gurkas— as these brave fellows entered a zigzag path under the cliff. Firing also at long range the highlanders pushed through in support of tlie front line. The Afrids commanded the entire field and swep:; it with u rain of bullets which no coiuran could survive. As the Gurkiis climbed the base of the ridge a column of the enemy swung from the mountain around one flank. Three companies of the Gurkas kept moving forwiird in spite of terrible losses, and th'ii remainder of the regiment turned ::o meet the flank attack. A regiment of Britons attempted to su| port the three companies of Gurkas who all who abould dare follow their footsteps must share the same fate. This momentarj' paralysis of action was brought to an end by an electrifying spectacle at the front. A dark object was seen to tear itself away, as it were, from a ledge of rock and move backward toward the British lines. Soon it evolved into the form of a man running and leaping in a zigzag course along the pathway strewn with bodies and over which the bullets again began to pour from Africi rifles on the hillside. It was the white commander of the Gurkas, Captain John Graham Robinson, who for a second time faced death in crossing that terrible zone. When he rushfcd up to the astounded general, his salute and explanation were as abrupt and naive as could be expected from a gallant fellow who had lived through a thousand close sbaves the past three hours. Said he: "I have come back to take others across. There are not enough over there to do any good." Orders were given first to the remainder of the Gnrkas and then to tbe two white regiments iu front to cross to succor the gallant oatposc. Then Captain Robinson started back to his command. He soon fell under a wound, from which he died. The advjince of the Gurka reserve was a. signal for another outburst of battle. The Afrids on the ridge again swept the interval with bullets. The Gurkas recoiled, as did also the Derbyshire and Dorsetshire regiments, which attempted to follow. The front ranks of these commands fell to a man the moment they started forward. Last came the run of the Gordon highlanders, who had faced the fire at long range and lost many officers and men, but had not been in tbe fray as much as their comrades. Tbe Scotchmen marched boldly to the edge of the depression which was just out of Afrid range, and while halted there for better formation saw before them the frowning ridge and defiant Afrid banners; at the base an indistinct mass of color, showing where the survivors of Captain Robinson's band still clung to their posts; between'a shallow valley strewn with dead Gnrkas and those of the Eng- COLONKl, HKSKT H. MATH1AS. [Leader of Iho Gordon highlanders.] , tad crossed the fire zone, leaving half tbeii number dead along the path. The kead of this column was swept away four or flT6 tiriea by the Afrid volleys, and then the attack came to » halt of ittelf. The tiiree companies of Gnrkas were lying along the bloody track or against the b»» of the rUlge.

The halt there was of tho briefest, and as tho line stepped up to the mark Colonel Matbias said: "Men of the Gordon highlanders, our general says that position must be taken at all hazards. The Gordon highlanders will take i'C." Then ho shouted "Forward!" and the rush was like the rush of Napoleon and Lanneis with tbe grenadiers at the bridge of Lodi. The belt of danger was narrow for tho moment, and, dashing across that, there was no stopping the highlanders before they got under shelter of the foot ridge where the Gnrkas' advance lay. "While the highlanders stood in line for n moment the Afrids trained their rifles across the field, intending to sweep its farther edge the moment the line should march with British stolidity into the fire zone, tut the kilted northmen, cheered by the shrill pipes, were too quick for the savages. Many fell on the way as it was, and the dead of those gone before were stumbled over and trampled upon, but the line never halted or looked back, not even on reaching Captain Robinson's lodgment under the cliff, and behind them came the rest of the Gurkas and the British commands that had fared unluckily all the day. The rush of the highlanders and their marvelous immunity from death frightened the superstitious Afrids, and when Colonel Mathias ordered his men at the base of the ridge to press on without a halt, the wounded and prostrate piper si;ill playing the "Cock of the North" to cheer them on, the enemy, without attempting to resist, fled over the ridge and down the slope on the other side. Tho loss of the Highlanders was comparatively slight, but the few victims were shining marks. Colonel ilatlras was wounded. He had seen 27 years of service in the campaigns in India and Africa. His first honors were won at the storming of Malakand pass in 1SSID. Major Jennings-Bramley was killed when the hiphlanders first advanced rn the support of the Gurkas who led off la the attack. He had served in the army IS years. Lieutenant Alexander Lament was tie youngest victim of (he fight. He had joined the higblanda-s three years ago and was 25 years old when killed leading his company in lie grand charge. Lament belonged to a noted soldier family and was the si:.th of that name and line who have fallen In England's battles during the century. The leader of the reserve ccmpanics of Gnrkas, whom the highlanders so gallantly supported, Major Charles Bellew Judge, was also killed. His grandfather, Major Judge, was killed in jU:- ghanistan in 1840. GEOEGEL. "What's tthe matter?" "Mr*.

Effect of the Club XJpon Business and Beligrtoua Life — A Warninu to the Younc* [Copyright, 1S9S, by American Press Association.] WASHINGTON, Jan. 9.—This discourse of Dr. Talmage will be helpful to those •who want to find places with healthful and improving surroundings and to avoid places deletions. His test is II Samuel ii, 14, "L^ the young men now arise and play before ns." There are two armies encamped by the pool of Gibeon. The time hangs heavily on their hands. One army proposes a game of sword fencing. Nothing conld be more healthful and innocent. The other army accepts the challenge. Twelve men against 12 men, the sport opens. But something went adversely. Perhaps one of the swordsmen got ua unlucky clip or in some way had his ire aroused, and that which opened in sportfulness ended in violence, each one taking his contestant by the hair and then with the sword thrusting him in the side, so that that which opened in innocent fun ended in the massacre of all the 24 sportsmen. Was there owr a better illustration of what was true then and is true now, that that which is innocent may be made destructive? At this season of the year the clubhouses of our towns and cities are in full play. I have found out that there is a legitimate and an illegitimate use of the clubhouse. In the one case it may liecome a healthful recreation, liko the contest of the 24 men in the text when they began their play; in the other case it becomes the massacre of body, mind and sonl, as in the case of these contestants of the text when they had gone too far with their sport. All intelligent ages have had their gatherings for political, social, artistic, literary purposes—gatherings characterized by the blunt old Anglo-Saxon designation of "club." Famous Clubs. If you have read history, you know that there was a King's Head club, a Ben Jonson clnb, a Brothers' club, to which Swift and Bolinghroke belonged; a Literary club, which Burke and Goldsmith and Johnson and Boswell made immortal; a Jacobin club, a Benjamin Franklin Junto club—some of these to indicate justice, some to favor the arts, some to promote good manners, some to despoil the habits, some to destroy tho soul. If one will write au honest history of tho clubs of England, Ireland, Scotland, France and the United States for the last 100 years, he will write the history of the world. The club was an institution born on English soil, but it has thrived well in American atmosphere. Who shall tell how many belong to that kind of club where men put purses together and open house, apportioning the expense of caterer and servants and room and having a sort of domestic establishment—a style of clubhouse which in my opinion is far better than the ordinary hotel or boarding house? But my object now is to speak of clubhouses of a different sort, such as the Cosmos or Chevy Chase or Lincoln club of this capital, or the Union Leagues of many cities, the United Service c5ub of London, the Lotos of New York, where journalists, dramatists, sculptors, painters and artists from all branches gather together to discuss newspapers, theaters and elaborate art; like the Americus, which camps out in summer time, dimpling the pool with its hook and arousing the forest with its stag hunt; like the Century club, which has its large group of venerable lawyers and poets; like the Army and Navy club, where those who engaged in warlike service once on the land or the sea now come together to talk over the days of carnage; like the New York Yacht club, with its floating palaces of beauty upholstered with velvet and paneled •with ebony, having all the advantages of electric bell and of gaslight and of king's pantry, one pleasure boat costing $3,000, another § 15,000, another $80,000, another $65,000, the fleet of pleasure boats belonging to the clnb having cost over 82,000,000-: J it^ the American .lackey club, to which belong men who have a passionate fondness for horses, fine horses, as had Job when, in the Scriptures, he gives us a sketch of that king of beasts, the arch of its neck, the nervousness of its foot, the majesty of its gait, the whirlwind of its power, crying out: "Hast thon clothed his neck with thunder? The glory of his nostrils is terrible. He paw- eth in the valley and rejoiceth in his strength. He saith among the trumpets 'Ha, ha!' and he smelieth the battle afar off, the thunder of the captains and the shouting;" like the Travelers' club, the Blossom club, the Palette club, the Commercial club, the Liberal club, the Stable Gang club, the Amateur Boat club, the gambling clubs, the -iviiie clubs, the clubs of all sizes, the clu'bs of all morals, clubs as; good as good can be and clubs as bad as bad can be—clubs innumerable. During the day they are comparatively lazy places. Here and there an aged man reading a newspaper or an employee dusting a sofa or a clerk writing up the accounts, but when the curtain of the night falls on the natural day then the curtain of the clubhouse hoists for the entertainment. Lei us hasten up now the marble stairs. What an imperial hallway! See, here are parlors on the side wirii the upholstery of the Kremlin and the Tuileries and here are dining halls that challenge yon to mention any luxury that they cannot afford, and here are galleries with sculpture and paintings and lithographs and drawings from the best of artists, Crop- gey and Biergadt and Church and Hart and Gifford—pictures for every mood, •whether you are impassioned or placid; ship-wreck or sunlight over the sea, Sheridan's ride or lihe noonday party of the farmers under the trees, foaming deer pursued bjr tho hounds in the Adi- rondacks or the sheep on the lawn. On this side there are reading rooms where you find all newspapers and magazines. On that side there is a library where yon find all books, from .bermenentics to KK fairy tale. Coming in and out there are gentlemen, some of whom stay ten minutes, other stay many hours. Some of these are from luxurious homes, and they have excused themselves for awhile from the domestic circle that they may stijoy the larger sociability of the club- bouse. These are from dismembered households, and they have a plain lodging somewhere, but they come to this iluhroom to have their chief enjoyment. Oue blackball amid ten votes will defeat a man's becoming a member. For rowdyism, for drunkenness, for gambling, for any kind of misdemeanor, a nieaTber is dropped out. Brilliant club- bouse from top to bottom—the chandeliers, the plate, the furniture, the companionship, the literature, the social prestige, a complete enchantment. Bad Clubs, But the evening is passing on, and so we hasten through the hail and down the seeps and into the street, and from block to block until we come to another style of clubhouse. Opening the door, we find the fumes of strong drink and tobacco something almost intolerable. These young men at this table, it is easy to understand what they are at, from tbe flushed cheek, the intent look, the almost angry way of tossing the dice or of moving the "chips." They are gambling. At another table are men who are telling vile stories. They are three- fourths intoxicated, and between 12 and 1 o'clock they will go staggering, hooting, swearing, shouting on their way home. That is an only son. On him all kindness, all care, all culture has been bestowed. He is paying his parents in this way for their kindness. That is a young married man who, only a few months ago, at the altar, made promises of kindness and fidelity, every one of which he has broken. Walk through and see for yourself. Here are all the implements of dissipation and of quick death. As the hours of the night go away the conversation becomes imbecile and more debasing. Now it is time to shut up. Those who are able to stand will get out on the pavement and balance themselves against the lamppost or against the railings of the fence. The young man who is not able to stand will have a bed improvised for him in the clubhouse, or two uot quite so overcome with liquor will conduct him to his father's house, and they will ring tbe doorbell, and the door will open, and the two imbecile escorts will introduce into the hallway the ghastliest and most hellish spectacle that ever enters a front door—a drunken sou. If the dissipating clubhouses of this country would make a contract with the inferno to provide it 10,000 men a year and for 20 years on the condition that no more should be asked of them, the clubhouses could afford to make that contract, for they would save homesteads, save fortunes, save bodies, minds and souls. The 10,000 men who would be sacrificed by that contract, would be but a small part of the multitude sacrificed without tbe contract. But I make a vast difference between clubs. I have belonged to four clubs—a theological club, a ball club arid two literary clubs. 1 got from them physical rejuvenation and moral health. What shall be the principle? If God will help me, I will lay down three principles by which you may judge whether the club where you are a member or the club to which 3 r ou have been invited is a legitimate or aa illegitimate clubhouse. Club Influence. First of all I want you to test the club by its influences on home, if you have a home. I have been told by a prominent gentleman in club life that three-fourths of the members of the great clubs of these cities are married men. That wife soon loses her influence over her husband who nervously and foolishly looks upon all evening absence as an assault on domesticity. How are the great enterprises of art and literature and beneficence and public weal to be carried on if every man is to have his world bounded on one side by his front doorstep and on the other side by his back window, knowing nothing higher than his own attic or nothing lower than his own cellar? That wife who becomes jealous of her husband's attention to art or literature or religion or charity is breaking her own scepter of conjugal power, I know an instance where a wife thought that her husband was giving too many nights to Christian service, to charitable service, to prayer meetings and to religious convocation. She systematically decoyed him away until now he attends no church and is on a rapid way to destruction, his morals gone, his money gone and, I fear, his soul gone. Let any Christian -wife rejoice when her husband •consecrates evenings to the service of Gcd or to churity or to art or to anything elevr-ited, but let not nien sacrifice home life r<> club life. I caa point out to you a great, many uaraes of men who ;are guilty of this sacrilege. They are as .genial as angels at the clubhouse and as •Qsly as sin at licme. They are generous <on all subjects of wine suppers, yachts ;smd fast horses, but they are stiugy about the wife's dre.-:s and the children's uhoes. That man has made that which might be a healthful recreation a usurper of his affections, and he has married il;, and he is guilty of moral bigamy. Under this process the wife, whatever her features, becomes uninteresting and homely. He becomes critical of her, does nos like the dress, does not like the way she arranges her hair, is 'unazed that he ever was so unromanric •AS to offer her hand and heart. She is ill-ways wimting money, money, when ishe ought 1:0 be discussing eclipses and Dexter and Derby day and English idrags with six horses, all answering the •puli of one "ribbon." I tell you there are thousands of ibonses in the cities being clubbed to iJeath. Tibere are clubhouses where membership always involves domestic iihipwreck Tell me that a man has a certain dub, tell ma nothing Bcrwatiout Dim rort-en years, write his history if he be still alive. Tbe roan is a wine guzzler, his wife broken hearted or prematurely old, his fortune gone or reduced and his home a mere name in a directory. Here are six secular nights in the week. "What shall I do with them?" says the father and the husband. "I will give four of those nights to the improvement and entertainment of my family, either at home or in good neighborhood. I will devote one to charitable institutions. I will devote one to the club." I congratulate yon. Here is a man who says: "1 will make a different division of the six nights. I will take three for the club and three for other purposes." I tremble. Here is a man who says, "Out of the six secular nights of the week I will devote five to the clubhouse and one to the home, which night I will spend in scowling like a March squall, wishing I was out spending it as I had spent the other five." That man's obituary is written. Not one out of 10,000 that ever gets so far on the wrong road ever stops. Gradually his health will fail through late hours and through too much stimulus. He will be first rate prey for erysipelas and rheumatism of the heart;. The doctor coming in will at a glance see it is not only present disease he must fight, but years of fast living. The clergyman, for the sake of the feelings of the family, on the funeral day will only talk in religions generalises. The men who got his yacht in the eternal rapids will not be at the obsequies. They will send flowers to the coffin lid and send their wives to utter words of sympathy, but they will have engagements elsewhere. They never come. Bring me mallet and chisel, and I will cut on the tombstone that man's epitaph, "Blessed are the dead who die :in tbe Lord." "No, "yon say, "that would not be appropriate." "Let me die the death of the righteous and let my last end be like his." "No," you say, "that would not be appropriate." Then give me the mallet and the chisel, and I will cut an honest epitaph, "Here lies the victim of a dissipating clubhouse." I think that damage is often done by the scions of some aristocratic family who belong to one of these dissipating clubhouses. People coming up from humbler classes fee), it an honor to belong to the same club, forgetting the fact that many of the sous and grandsons of the large commercial establishments of the last generation are now as to mind imbecile, as to body diseased, as to morals rotten. They would have got through their property long ago if they had had full possession of it, but the wily ancestors, who earned the money by hard knocks, foresaw how it was to be, and they tied up everything in the will. Now, there is nothing of that unworthy descendant but bis grandfather's name and roast beef rotundity. And yet how many steamers there are which i'eel honored to lash fast that worm eaten tug, though ic drags them straight into the breakers. The Club In Busmen*. Another test by which you can find whether your club is legitimate or illegitimate—the effect it has on your secular occupation. I canuudiirstand how through such an institution a man can reach commercial successes. I know some men have formed their best business relations through such a channel. If the club .bas advantaged you iu au honorable calling, it is a legitimate club. But has your credit failed? Are bargain makers more cautious bow the3' trust you with a bill of goods? Have the men whose names were down in the commercial agency A1 before they entered the club been going down ever since in commercial standing? Then look out! You and I every day know of commercial establishments going to ruin through the social excesses of one or two members, their fortunes beaten, to death with ball players' bat, or cut amidships fay the front prow of the regatta, or going down under the swift hoofs of tbe fast horses, or drowned in large potations of cognac or monongahela. Their clubhouse was the "Loch Earn." Their business bouse was the "Ville dn Havre." They struck, and the "Ville da Havre" \rent under. A third test by which yon may know whether the club to which you belong or the club to whose membership you are invited is a legitimate club or an illegitimate club is this: What is its effect on your sense of moral and religious obligation? Now, if 1 should take the names of all tbe people in any audience and put them on a roll and then I should lay that roll back of tbe organ, and JOO years from now some one should take that roll and call it from A to Z, there would not one of you answer. 1 say that any association that makes me forget that fact is a bad association. Now, to many of the cities there are two routes, and you can take the Pennsylvania railroad or the Baltimore and Ohio; but suppose that I hear that on one route the track is torn up and the bridges are torn down and the switches are unlocked?. It will not take me a great while to decide which road to take. Now, here are two roads into the future, the Christian and the un-Christian, the safe and the unsafe. An institution or any association that confuses my idea in regard to that fact is a bad institution and a bad association. I had prayers before 1 joined the club. Did I have than after? I attended the house of God before I connected myself with the club. Sines that union vrith the club do I absent myself from religious influences? Which would yon rather have in. your hand when you come to die, a pack of cards or a Bible? Which would you rather have pressed to your lips in the closing moment, the cnp of Bslshazza- itsan wassail or the chalice of Christian communion? Who would yon rather hare for your pallbearers, the elders of a Christian church or tha companions whose conversation was full of slang and innuendo? Wno would you rather have for your eternal companions, those men -who spend their evenings betting, giunbling, swearing, caroming and telling file stories or your little child, that bight girl whom tbe Lord took?
