Can they get hrjv in time/ We must hold this knoll; it is tho key point of this part of the battle, and see, tho enemy is advancing for a grand assault. Quickl order up another regiment to support the battery when it g>:t» here. Thero it cornea, flashing at intervals through smoke and dust like a meteor. A long train of guns and calfsous- 1 - stx, eight guns, and nix, eight caissons, and Bbc, eight horses to each gun and caisson. With a tremendous rai'ket, they dash faU speed across fields, never turning to right OF left, heading straight for this knoll Drirara all lashing their burses into a fury of foam; officers pointing with their swords, and 03 the gun chests sit the brave cannoneers, cool and indifferent outwardly, but knowing full well inwardly that in a few minutes more many of them will bite tho dust. They hold on to the chest handles for life, for as a wheel strikes a log, the carriages jump two feet la the air t Now they turn slightly with the greatest rapidity to avoid that huge bowlder, they cross ditches, overturn hedge* and fences, all the horses galloping In a clond of dust Ha I one horse, ling fallen—yes, struck by a bullet. The men jump down from the carriage, the battery goes on—in a moment the traces are cut, and tho poor horso loft to die. The carriage, drawn now by five horse*, hurries to rejoin the battery. There, they all go down a hollow, and disappear from view for a moment—the next instant they are up again. Bee I the captain gives a Bign. What a ubangel As if instantly turned to marblo every horse and carriage stops dead short. Then for five secxmds what inextricable coa- fuslonl Horses, men, guns and caliSons together in a horrible jumble—then all is clear again. There back in the hollow, sheltered are the caissons—a little below the bill stands the line of limbers, and here on the crest are the guns. What a metamorphosis I The statuellke cannoneers ore now full of life and excitement! Now a cloud of white eraoke and red flame suddenly shoot* out of the black mouth nearest, a terrible boom rings out, then another and another. Boom I boom I boom I the great mouths yell with horrible delight, and at each boom goes down a wide swath of men in the advancing col-' umn. Boom! boom! boom! they roar In" Joyful glee, and yot at each boom they recoil In horror at their own power. Beyond the enemies' lines, away oft* iu the distance, trees split and fall, and houses collapse at some unseen mysterious power. Everything gives way before the terrible storm of irou missiles thrown out at each boom! boom! boom I The enemy for nn Instant holt, and then reform, on again and charge up the hillside. Will nothing stop tt em! No, they are determined to have tho battery that causes such terrible destruction in their runks, and though with each discharge wide lanes are ojiened in them, they do not falter. The brave can- noneers are falling fast. Quick! "Limber, reorl" Bounds the bugle, while tho long supporting line of infantry rises from the lioli low, and pours volley after volley into the determined foe. Ha! he halts—he is checked I No, that is only temporary disorder. " See, there he comes again, with a yelll Oh! how terrible! Quickl spike the guns! Hand to hand they flght Seo, even as that officer's sword is upraised, the bullet strikes him, and he reels from off his horse. Down goes the horse, kicking and screaming in death agony, lion fighting with baybneU, dubbed muskets, fire their guns la each other's faces, blow off heads of men close by. Blood I Blood! Blood! What is that? Thank Godl The joyful yell in our rear is from a re-enforcement arrived just in time. The enemy sees it, he gives way, there he goes—what Is left of him. That is right; pour volley after volley into him, rush after him; do not leave anyone alive. The guns are safe, but what n scene! There are piles of dead and wounded together. Pools of blood on the ground,'and everything marked with blood. Flies are already settling on the dead. What terrible groans and moans, and praj-era for water. Broken musket*, torn clothes revealing white skin stained with red blood, canteens, haversacks, guidons; cooking tins, connister cartridges, broken wheels, dead horses and men, all together- Look at that moss I Horses with entrails scattered about; human legs and. arms without bodies; bodies with jagged splinters and bones protruding through the flesh. That man's face is already swollen and this one's is turned block. Oh! the despair, the hatred or courage depicted on their countenances! And the strange positions they take—eyes protruding from sockets and tongues from mouths. Oh! it is terrible. One can but shudder and sicken, turn faint and giddy. Yet it is war—the science that brings out the noblest as well as tho worst passions of men, and that is the great civilizer of tho world.— William R Hamilton, U. 8. A., in Outing.

'An observant friend who hod been examining a collection of faces representing a large number of the public men in the United States, made the following general; conclusions In regard to national types in' the cutting of the beard, which contain more than a grain of truth. "The simple mustache, with the rest of the face clean shaven, U the prevailing American typa," he said. "The old time Yankee chin whisker, like that of tho traditional Uncle Sam, is no longer the national cut. In the name way tha old French type ot the imperial, or heavy mustache and long goatee, has given way in France to the present type of a close cut full beard trimmed to double points on the chin. The. German and Russian national tjjpes are hoary full beards parted at the middle ot the chin. The English type Is a small, ' abort cropped mustache, with small square side growths. The general south Europ«au type of Spain or Italy Is either an entirely clean shaven face or else a very small mustache and goatee crowded close about the month. — Boston Advertiser.

A Corean IB always ready to eat; he attacks whatever he meets with, 'and rarely says "enough." Even between meals he wih help himself to any edible that Is offered. The ordinary portion of a laborer : is about a quart of rice, which, when' cooked, makes a good bu&. This, bow- ever, is no serious hindrance to his devouring double or .treble the quantity when he can get it. Eating matches ore common. When an ox is slaughtered and the beef is served up, a heaping bowl ot the steaming mess does not alarm any guest. Dog meat is a common article of food, and the canine sirloins, served, up In great trenchers, are laid before the guests, each one having bis own small table to himself. When fruits, such as peaches and small melons, are served, they are devoured without peeling^ Twenty or thirty peaches is considered an ordinary allowance, whl h rap- Idly disappears. Such a prodigality in victuals is, however, not common, and for one feastShere are many fasti ngK. The Coreans are neither fastidious In their eating, nor: painstaking in their cooking.
