BEAJb ESTATE TKAJiSFEttH*. Pretty, Dainty Hud Convenient Toilet Table. As pretty and dainty a toilet table as any woman could wish and one that would delight the heart of a young girl is shown in the accompanying illustration. First .select an ordinary kitchen table of medium size. Half way up tht> A TOILET TABLE. legs have a shelf fitted, which will be found to be an excellent place to store out of the sight the various odds and ends of a girl's toilet. The floor space beneath will serve as a closet for shoes, slippers and the like. First cover the top of the table with eilesia of any'color desired. Make a scant frill of the same, reaching to the floor, and tack to the edge of table top. On this huve a very full ruffle of dptted swiss, finished :it the bottom with a wide heru. For the top of table make a cover the exact size of white linen lawn embroidered in duinty blossoms and finish with full frill of lace. The flowers should be selected with regard to the color chosen for lining. If yellow is used, buttercups, small single roses or daffodils would be desirable; if blue, forgetmenots, blue gentians or bachelor's buttons. Make n long narrow cushion, known as a yard cushion, carrying out the same desigu as the cover and edge with very full am pie ruffle of lace. Finish at the corners with many loops of baby ribbon the shade of the flowers embroidered on the linen. For the top take a Japanese parasol and cut it directly iu half. This will form a sort of cnp from •which to haug the curtains. From the top of table to the point where the parasol is to hang stretch and tack to the wall silesia the same color as is used to cover the table. Over this put dotted Swiss laid iu plaits or gathered top and bottom and secure to the wall with small gimp tacks. Haug upon this a mirror with white euamel frame or gils if desired at the height required. Make curtains of the dotted swiss and edge with either a full frill or cotton ball edging. Hang these to the parasol by means of little picture rings screwed into each stick aud iiooks secured to the curtains. Lay plaits in the curtains when each hook is secured, so that it vrill not sag between the points whert it is attached. Tie the curtains back with satin ribbon of the f»me shade as the Using, and the toilet table will be complete. Of course other materials than swiss maybe used, "tambour muslin, fish net, white and gold oriental crapes will all prove satisfactory.- Th« table is rery easy of construction and is dainty and decorative enough to be an acceptable addition to any young lady's room. M.VKY EABLK. .1 BRAVE BOY LEADER ROMANTIC SOLDIER CAREER OF COL. ARTHUR M'ARTHUR OF MILWAUKEE. Appointed Adjutant of the Twenty-fourth Wisconsin at Seventeen— The Soldiers Guyed Him «t First, Then Tolerated Him and Finally Idolized Him a* a Hero. [Copyright. 138. by American Press Association. Book rights reserved.] OYS were not popular as colonels in the civil •war. That is not saying that the boys who became colonels were not. popular with-the men they led. The fact that they became 1 e a d ers proves that they had the stuff in them to fill the bill. Soldiers •were not particular as to the length, of a colonel's beard or about anything else except the quality of leadership. Hence if a boy got into the. saddle with a sil-, ver decoration on his shoulders the more honor to him. In writing thus I have in. mind only the fighting colonels and fighting regiments and fighting soldiers. There is a notion abroad that for hundreds and hundreds-of regiments and hundreds of thousands of soldiers the going to war was only a junketing affair, that they never saw a Confederate, or if they did ran away at the first view. Such colonels and regiments and soldiers are never exploited in the articles signed as below. To my mind a regiment, when considering Federals, is a body of men which stood, like a rock at Malvern Hill or Stone River or Gettysburg or Chickamauga or Franklin, or which stormed the lines at Antietam and Fredericksbnrg, at Mission Ridge and Kenesaw, at Spottsylvania and Petersburg.- • •""•.' Naturally, then, if I take a boy colonel or any other kind of a colonel for a theme, I shall go'to a very hot place to find him. Therein lies, the key to there-mark that boy colonels were not popular. It required a marvel of a man to be the colonel of a fighting regiment- that is to say, a staying colonel, and staying qualities are.implied in what I have said of my chosen types of soldiers. A fighting colonel must be an ideal master of men, not a mere driver, but a master in the sense of leadership, one to draw his men to him and make them as so many members of his own body obedient to the very impulses of his brain. Now, there were a handful only of boy colonels of that stamp. There were two besides Colonel Arthur McArthur in the very field where he won and kept his unique position, one of them in the same brigade. Colonel Silas Miller of the Thirty-sixth Illinois started as a private and at 22 was commanding the regiment. Before he was 25 he fell at the head of his regiment, storming the slopes of Kenesaw. Colonel J. B. Forman of the. Fifteenth Kentucky was only 21 years of age when he was killed at the head of his regiment at Stone River. He won the silver eagle by an act of gallantry at Perryville two months before. A veteran of the Twenty-fourth Wisconsin recently gave the war story teller of The Times-Herald some points in the career of Colonel McArthnr which show that a boy was handicapped in many ways in his race for a. colonelcy. Said he: " When the governor made him our adjutant in 1862, he was only 17 and small for bis age. His voice had not fully changed. It sounded like the crowing of a young rooster in its-first efforts. We made all sorts of fun of 'biro, and felt that we had been imposed upon by the governor. We wanted a man, not a stripling, for adjutant, an office almost as important as that of a colonel. "Yon ought to have heard the boy. on dress parade. His chicken voice didn't reach half way down the line when ho piped out, 'To the rear; open order; march I* and when he minced to the center of the regiment, moved out in front and said, 'First sergeant to the front and center, march!' there was a broad grin on the faces of a thousand men and a scowl on that of the colonel. The first colonel had seen service and wanted a competent man for adjutant. The night after the first dress parade he said, 'I shall write to the'governor to send me a wooden man for adjutant.' The boy heard of some,of the colonel's comments, and he could see that the men were guying him'. It cut Mm to the quick. " 'I'll show them that I can fight anyway. Then maybe they'll come to like me better,' said the boy as he brushed away something damp from his soft cheek." Another story from the same lips brings out the qualities this boy had for winning the love of his men. At Kenesaw the veteran -who tells the story vras badly wounded and left behind when the Twenty-fourth was ordered back after the repulse. Young McAr- thnr was in command, and when he learned that Sergeant Dunn was among the missing in battle he sent a file of men to the front again to search for him. Said he, "If he is wounded and alive, see that he is given in charge of the surgeon at once; if dead, bring his body in, and i: shall be sent home." The thought was the impulsive one of a bov, but the act was that of a firm juid ready commander. ,, McArthur won his eagle. He was no accidental colonel. At the first great battle of the regiment, Stone River, the colonel and lieutenant colonel were both absent, and : 'the command of the Twenty-fourth devolved upon the major and the boy adjutant. Tj»e regiment •was in Sheridan's division, where it served all through the war. At Stone River the three brigade commanders of the division were shot down early in thefightacd theregiments left tothem- selves. It was a terrible struggle, too well known to be repeated here. The Twenty-fourth came out with 300 -men in the ranks, having lest almost at " Pure and Sure." Manuftcttlred originally bv Cleveland Brothel's, Altany, N.

He was not guyed any more, and after the next battle, bloody Chickamauga, the regiment looked up to him as a feature it couldn't do without and remain the same. Then at; the battle of Mission Ridge he capped it all by a deed of-personal heroism and presence of mind only to he expected of a true soldier. The Twenty-fourth, under Sheridan's lead, started on the signal to go up the slope 'at double quick, for the emergency called for rapid action on the line. They carried the first of the enemy's defenses, arid after a short breathing spell orders came to go ahead. It was up hill work in the double sense, for the men bad to fight for right of way and struggle up the steep and rugged hillside under fire. Finally the color bearer dropped down from physical exhaustion while the line •was strung out, wavering as to which course to take to avoid the enemy's fire and the obstructions in the path. McArthur, still adjutant, was at the front,' and seizing the flag in the hands of the prostrate beaier unfurled it and rushed forward, the actual leader of the whole line. For the deed at Mission Ridge the fcoy adju'taut was promoted to,the rank of major, a field officer's position, two grades below that of colonel. A major commands a 'battalion ol the regiment when in action, and often when the regiment is small there aro but two field officers, and themajor is second iu command. The Twenty-fourth had become so depleted that there .were.^but two field officers after Missioa Ridge. During the'Atlanta'campaign it was led by ,,a lieutenant colonel, and at fife storm- aiog of Kenesaw that office was ; held by young McArthur. He was not yet 19 years old, for only 1^4 years had passed since he piped his feeble war notes at battalion dress parades. McArthur's soldierly action at Kenesaw has been noticed in the story of .Sergeant Dunn, and that is only little of what, might he said ol the boy leader Bind his gallant command in that battle. It fought; iu the brigade of Colonel Op- (lycke, side by Bide with the Thirty-sixth Illinois,'which brave young Miller led until he was shot down with' a mortal wound? And McArthur got himself in the path of the bullets, according to The Times-Herald's reminiscences by Sergeant Dunn. /'But for a bundle of letters and documents," said the sergeant, ."I guesa the-little colonelwould have given some one else a chance to command the'Twen- ty-fourth. A bullet struck him over the heart: In the bundle of letters and papers was his commission as lieutenant colonel, received a few days before. The commission was marked by the bullet that was steering for the boy's heart." But she span of charmed life was to eud for the boy, at last and did end at the battle of'-Franklin, Nov..30, 1864, lantfy aad wen led by the coy euiciiu. Arthur McArthur." It was a case of much glory on young shoulders, bni; there was no getting out of it, with that bleeding form and pale face 'as mute witnesses, that all had been earned in man's noblest work most nobly done. Colonel McArthur recovered in time to take the regiment home to Milwaukee, where he presented to the governor all that was left of Milwaukee's pride— a stripping, boy leader, two tattered flags mid a couple of hundred or so of battle scarred and battle grimed veterans. GEOKSE L. KHMER. NOT USING THE STOVEPIPE. A Case of Literal Observance of a Fire Inspector's Instruction*. A day or two ago Fire Inspector Sharp entered a shoe shop in a Broad street basement for the purpose of making an inspection. The owner of the shop is aii old negro man who has known Inspector Sharp for many years, and he was highly delighted at the honor bestowed upon him. When he was informed that the stovepipe was in such a fix that it might set the building on fire and was told not -to use it any longer, be entered no protest and said: "No, sah, Marse Sharp; she sho gwinter come clown dis.day!" A few lines on Inspector Sharp's notebook told of the condemnation of the flue, and he went on his way, giving' no further thought to this particular case. A short while afterward a man passing along the street stopped in front of the building uuder which .the shop is located 1 : He smelled something burning, but passed on, thinking it was smoke from a locomotive. Then another man stopped. He saw smoke coming through the sidewalk grating. He pointed it out to another, and then a crowd gathered. The smoke increased and was seen issuing from the building above the sidewalk. Some one suggested sending an alarm. Others opposed this, and a compromise was arranged by which Assistant Chief Cummings was telephoned for and the crowd made a committee of the whole to investigate the cause of the smoke. They walked down the steps of the shoeshop, and when they opened the 1 door they were" almost blinded by the dense smoke. Iu the middle of the floor sat the shoemaker hard at work. In front of him was the ill fated stove. A •hot fire was roaring in it, and from all sides black smoke was issuing. There was no stovepipe to convey the smoke to the flue. The pipe was lying iu a corner and was bent and broken. "Great Scott, old man!" exclaimed a comrnitteernan. " Why don't you put your stovepipe tip and let the smoke out? Here, give me a lift, and I will help:you with it." He started toward ' pipe, hut the old negro jumped iu , ) Led : by'Colonel McArthur the Twenty-1 f ront O f hj ni) exclaiming: fourth was one of the seven/regiments which made "history that dky on Carter's hill in tbitfamons charge of, Opdycke's brigade. That, too, ; • is a well known story,imt one to bear -recalling. The' main line; of breastworks iu front of Carter's hilL.was breached, by a des- psa-ate and overwhelming charge of Cle- hurne's Teunesseeaus. Opdycke's brigade lay ia reserve behind the breach. The men had been in action out at the front for 36 hours and were resting and taking coffee when the Confederates burst through the line iu front. At the quick command of Opdycke. "First COLONEL ARTHUR M'ABTHTB. brigade, fall in, double quick, charge!" the regiments in three lines as they lay at rest hurled themselves headlong upon the exulting enemy. All told they numbered but -', 000. Forging their -way to the front by dint of bayonet thrusts and blows from clubbed muskets they cleared a path to the works and retook eight cannon, which they turned on the enemy. The works-were held and the day was saved. Out of seven regimental leaders fire were shot down, 34cArtbur among them, and one of the first to go. The second in command, Major Philbrook, was killed. McArthur survived his wound. It was the last parade of the regiment on the battlefield with the boy in evidence, and this was what General ^Stanley, the corps commander, said of 'the .performance: "I will not say absolutely that the Twenty-fourth Wisconsin saved the battle of Franklin, but I can te*stifyfrom the evidence of my own eyes that it had a great deal to do with sa\aG£Otv.~ In this t *t it_w»8.g&I- Don't tech dat pipe!

He told me ter tal. > dat pipe down," au down she come." "But look at that smoke, old man. You will smoke everybody in the building out, aud they'll have you arrested," was urged. "Don't you know you can't burn a fire this way. Be sensible and put up the pipe." "No, siree. Allde perlice in town au Chief Manly ter boot can't make iue put dat pipe up. Don't you know Marse Sharp?

At this juncture At-sistanc Chief' Cummings and Inspector Sharp arrived on the scene and explained to the old man that he must not use his stove uii- ril the flue was mended. "Now, Marse Sharp," explained the negro, "you knows : you never said nuthin 'bout no stove, an pipe don't mean stove."—Atlanta Constitution.
