"Seven women are still drawing pensions as the widows of men who saw active service in the War of the Revo- Jtatjon, women whose husbands served "Tinder Washirigtdn more t£io 120 y'eajs ago," writes Clifford Howard in the February "Ladje^' Home Journal." ""^'eldest of these surviving widows e Jtevo^lojj-te living at Los^Aniles, Cal. She. Is Mrs. Lovey Aldrich, ; the : ninety-eighth year of hjjr ag?. Her husband was I*rivaTe' Caleb A|drlch, .who was born in the year \ . 1763, and served as a soldier boy in the New •> England campaigns of. the war. Jfrs. Nancy Jones, of Jonesborough, Tenn., whose husband was Darling Jones, a private in one of the North .Carolina'regiments, is the youngest of tiie 'Revolutionary widows, being now about eighty-three years of age. The other five are Nancy Cloud, who is llv-i ing at Chum, Va., and Is the widow of .Sergeant William Cloud, of Captain Christian's Virginia line; Esther S. Da- inon, of Plymouth Union, Vt, whose husband was Private Noah Damon, of Massachusetts; Mary Snead, living at Parksley, Va., widow of Private Bow- doln Snead; Nancy A. Weathermon, •who liven at Elk Mills, Tenn., and ••whose first husband was Robert Glas- coc'k, a.flfer. in one of the Virginia • regiments, and Rebecca Mayo, living at Newborn, Va., widow of Stephen Mayo, a soldier from Virginia. That these women .can be the widows of "Revolutionary soldiers is readily understood hi view of the fact that their -•husbands were well on in years when ... .they, married.

Esther" Sumtier married Noah Damon In the year 1835—fifty-two years after . the close of the war—she was but twenty-one, while he was seventy-six. The last Revolutionary widow pensioner who had married prior to the close of : the war, and had therefore actually lived during Revolutionary times, was Nancy . Serena, widow of Daniel F. Bakeman. She died about twenty-seven years ago, only a year or two after her husband, who was the last of the Revolutionary soldiers on the pension .roll." , n« Turned on th* G*«. Mrs. Pickett, the widow of Gen. Pickett, hero_.j3f< the 'desperate rebel charge at Gettysburg, relates' an anecdote of an old .mammy whom she discovered at Fredericksburg and who veritably believeo that she was Washington's first nurse, says the New York Mall and Express. Here is her story: "She was an old woman in a linsey- woolsey petticoat and a bright tvirban, and we found her in one of our jaunts around the city, and took a kodak picture of her. One of the company asked her in fun if she remembered Washington— sou see, she was very old. "'Deed an' deedy I do, miss,' she answered glibly. " 'Perhaps you were one of his nurses, mammy." " 'Dat am jess so, missy — I nursed him when he was a leetle mite >er baby.' "^~ . " 'Oh, then, yoti must have known about the cherry tree?" . "But she did not, and it was explained to her and she listened with much interest. , " 'Ise don know nothin' 'bout no cherry tree, missy, but I 'members 'zactly wheji his maw found him in her' room an' de gas a-burnln', 'cause he done turn it on.'

The remains were dressed in the uniform Capt. McGiffln wore in the Chinese navy. The casket was draped with. an. American flag. A letter written to Dr. Graeme Hammond by Capt. McGiffln, who killed himself in the Post-Graduate hospital, is now made public. The letter says: "I am tired of it all and am going to end matters. I wish, however, to absolve the hospital authorities from "all blame, for never has a man been more carefully .-watched and more tenderly cared for. . ' , "I have no friends to speak 'of. All my dearest friends were Chinese and were killed during the war of 1894-95. I am entirely sane and know- just what I am doing.

Horace Porter tells the following anecdote in .his "Campaigning with Grant" in the Century: During the ten days of battle through which we had just passed very little relief, physical or mental, had been obtained, but there was one staff officer, a Col. B , .who often came 'as bearer of messages to our headquarters, who always managed to console himself with novel-reading, and_ hia ; peculiarity in this respect became a standing joke among those who knew him. He went about with saddle bags stuffed full of thrilling romances, and was seen several times sitting on his horse, under a brisk fire, poring over the last pages of an absorbing volume to reach the denouement of the plot and evincing a greater curiosity to find how the hero and the heroine were going to be extricated from the entangled dilemma Into which they had been plunged by the unsympathetic autb'or than to learn the result of the surrounding battle. One of his peculiarities was that he took it, for granted that all- the people he met were perfectly familiar with UlB line of literature, and he talked about nothing but the merits of the latest novel. For the laet week he 'had been devouring Victor Hugo's "Lea Iflaerables." It was an English translation, for the officer had no knowledge of French. As he was passing a house i» reaa 1 of til* '"angle" he 8f,w a young . ia4y seated ott t&e porch, and, slopping bw*M to tier with all the * Cfr«*ter8&W and endeavored The envelope was marked: "Important: To Be Opened Immediately After My Exit." . .. • • 'Among tne captain's effects was found a diary, upon, the fly-leaf ;; of which he had made an entry on Christmas day, which was that he had determined to end his life at the first favorable opportunity. Hatching: n.ntl Roaring: ot The hatching and rearing of chickens may now engage our attention tor a -while. I have spoken on this Bub- Ject before, but I -wish to say something that Js especially suitable for farmer poultry-keepers, writes D. I/. Orr In New York Farmer. The subject of batching and rearing la one that Is certainly very important as the quality of the stock depends upon It, and I think the majority of farmers are lacking 1m the knowledge or else careless. In many places this is usually left to the women of the house, and where they are intelligent and anxious to make their poultry pay no one could be more suitable. In many places the farm hand has this part of the work to' do after all his other work is done, and In that case the poultry gets no care at all. There is no valid reason why every farmer should not himself know how to manage his -poultry as well as hla other stock, and then he can have, personal supervision over it and see that it Is properly and thoroughly done. Hatching on a farm Is usually done in a very loose manner. One. or two hundred hens are allowed to run with about half a dozen cocks and when hatching season begins eggs are taken without any choice and set until a suf- flcent number of chickens are hatched. The result Is: Many eggs unfertile, many chicks die on account of weak germs, and of those raised many amount to nothing, owing to the management. Often is the cane that they are hatched out so late they do not lay before spring. I have previously suggested there should be a selection made of the pullets and hens that are known as good layers during the winter, and these should be mated with pure-bred, not necessarily prize winners. The Leghorns, _Minocras, :or_ Wyandottes are' very good varieties to get. If table fowls are what you want, get a good male of breeds such as Plymouth Rocks, Wyandottes, Langshans, Dorkings. These are also yery good for laying stock. In selecllng heps It Is not always the biggest hen that la best adapted for table purposes. Qet the plump, good-breasted, fine-boned hen. Having made the selection for egg or table purposes, each cock should be pennejj up •^yUh abouj eight or ten hens. Thig ghoula have been done before, but It is not too late yet. The smaller or more active cocks, such as tieghorns or Minorcas, may have 12 hens, jthe larger cocks, eight As plenty. It ia better to mate cockerels wjjh &«u|, and cocks with pullets. I have found that this will give better results. This breeding-stock should have a place by Itself, with runs for exercise. Poultry netting can be had now for $4 a roll of two-Inch mesh, six feet high, and it •will pay to invest in a few rolls. These separated and mated should be kept this way till the breeding season is over. Hatching should commence in February and be over about May 1st. It is not profitable to hatch them, out ip June or July> as they "would cost more than they are worth. The breeding pens may be broken up in May, and all the fowls run together on the farm. This will make them str-ong and healthy; the: few months, of confinement will not hurt them. (Jive the breeding hens a good run on grass, if you can; this will make the eggs more fertile. Many think the Bitting hen is best left to herself, to make her own nest as when they lay away or steal their nest and hatch their own eggs they usually come off •with: a fine ..brood of chickens. But this is not always the safest plan, especially If a large number of chickens is needed. It is best .to supply the Ih'e'ns with nests In an old barn or out-, house, away from the other fowls, thereby not being molested. Aluuey for the 3d and 3d Iowa Itegl- inouts. The Second and Third Iowa Infantry originally numbered about 2,000 men, and there are. 'several hundred who have never been reimbursed for the gray uniforms they were compelled by the government to discard. This money, amounting to J14.25 each, is still due them or their surviving relatives, and is' to be had for the asking. The story of how the Second and Third Infantry went to battle decked put in gray uniforms and when they got to the front were compelled to doff them and buy blue uniforms, _ because the Confederates had adopted gray as their color, is well known. There lies in the treasury of Iowa $2,500, which has been set aside for the survivors of these regiments, of which few of them seem to be aware. Only 31 applications have come In thus far. • He Was KegponKlble for the Silver. In pne of the most splendid .of the New York hotels, lately, a distin 1 - guished gentleman, formerly a member of the cabinet, preferring not to eat at the public table, had his meals served in his own parlor, with all the elegance for which the estaWishment is noted. Being somewhat .annoyed by the conduct of the servant who waited on him, he desired 'him, one day at dinner, to retire.'. The servant bowed, and took his stand directly behind the gentleman's chair. Supposing him gone, it waa with some impatience that, a few ;minutes after, the gentleman gaw him utep forward to remove the soup. "Fellow," said he, ''leave the room! I wish to be alyne. M "Bxcuge me, " said the waiter, drawing himself up; "imt I aia resjjOQBible tar tbe iu Eggs. There are styles in eggs Just as there are in garments. The fashionable in New York Is that which bears the label of Long Island. An egg dealer there is, however, responsible for the statement that if all the hens on Long Island should lay liberally every day for a month the total product would not' equal the number of alleged Long Island eggs that are sold every weekday In New York. "You see," said the dealer, in explaining the popular preference for eggs that come from the other side of the East river, "people have got It into their heads that, long Island belns no near, the eggs are fresher. So we have to humor 'em. Most ail the dealers buy some Long Island eggs and mix 'em with state eggs and eell 'em for Long Island. Tbe fact Is that eggs shipped from central or eastern New York or Jersey get here about as soon as the Long Island eggs, but people 'don't think about that. They've got hold of the name 'Long Island,' and that's the go, and we sell them, for 2 or 3 cents higher than if we labeled them state eggs." Fashion also favors eggs that are laid by white Leg- born hens, because, like the bens, they are white and handsome. They are by no means the best eggs, dealers say. The dark ones that the Plymouth Rocks, for instance, furnish are heavier, richer and better. "Boston people like Plymouth Rock eggs," said the dealer. "They're close buyere, you know, and don't want anybody to tell 'em how to get the worth of their mpney. 1 The New York folks go in more for looks and a name."

Prtxtftl^nf <*t » Tn-Tricra* C'nnt-nntfori. The foltowing is pwt of thA synopsis printed by the Milton (Wis. ) .Tonraal of an exeellrafe address by President Whlt- forr* of Milton «sollega before the farmers' convention at a recent meeting at Milton. It contains some very Itioid statements of money and of the Jpower of governments to fix valne: First— Two Separate and distinct val- nes are assigned to money^ one being the intrinsic or market valne.dt the article used; the other the legal or face value, indicated by the stamp or device pressed npon the article. ' ; In some 77611 known instances what is popularly called money has only one of these values. • . Second. — The common practice of tribes and nations in selecting such articles or commodities for money Is to adopt two kinds or grades of them, one^ having greater market valne according to its weight, for use in the larger exchanges in trade; the other having lesser valne, for the smaller exchanges. This practice furnishes the first essential condition for a 'system of bimetallism. . Third.— Only that money is basio and •widely and permanently used •which is made of precious metals, very generally gold and silver. Other and perishable commodities are finally abandoned or held redeemable in these metals. Fourth.— -The market value of these metals, not their face value, constitutes the original and continuous quality by reason of which they are almost tuiivor- sally accepted as basio or primary money. Government or custom can odd a quality, not inherent, but temporary, to such metals and other articles used as a medium of exchange. But the real measure thus declared to be effective and lasting must bo the one established by the' laws of trade, not by the edicts of government Fifth. — Government itself cannot fix or control the market value or price of any metal or other commodity, whether used as znonoy or in the practical arts. "Sfrilrcnnnotnnake-fiat-monoyand corn* pel the people .to circulate it a great length of time as money of any sort. Sixth.' — Any coins or other money whose market value is less than their face value always soon expel from circulation all coins or other money whose market value is greater according to their weight, unless tho former are redeemable in the latter. Whenever a coin shows even ^a /slight inferiority of its market value to its face valne, it tends at once to crowd out of use even a coin whose two values are equivalent. Seventh.— Gold has been adopted by the principal ciyiliz<jd natipng as pri- .mary money or the standard of values because of its' greater market valua. its less •vroight for a given flWU of* money and its leant) fluctuation in market value of any of the precious metals. Eighth.— -Coins like silver, whose market value is less than their face value, can bo kept circulating at the samo time with gold coins even in somewhat largo amounts only by being redeemable in the same denominations with the gold. Tho some is true of , paper money, which has no' appreciable market value. Weyler*s Paper Promlgea. Our "Greenbackers" should rejoice over the fact that another paper money experiment is being tried. ' 'If greenbacks put down the rebellion in the United States, why shouldn't they prove effective weapons against Cuban rebels?" — reasons General Weyler, who is flooding the coast towns of Cuba with artistically .engraved promises to pay on one side of a piece of paper and a picture of a well developed tobacco plant oil the other side. The experiment is bound to be BUC- cessfpl, for the notes are made legal tender in the- worst way. — Any-shop keeper who refuses to accept these promises for their face valne is subject to instant imprisonment iu jails where. confinement means /almost certain death. Of course under the circumstances the notes are accepted. \Veyler, however, forgot to decree that prices should not ' be raised, and the Cuban shopkeepers are mean enough to try to defeat the experiment by raising prices. So far they have only doubled prices, but each one is trying to .see how highhe can put prices, and the end is not in sight. Como to think of it, high prices, constantly growing higher, have defeated all post experiments with paper money. Perhaps Weyler, by* correcting this little defect, may yet demonstrate that Green- backers arp right 'and that cheap money, by proper legislation, can be made just as good as money made from costly metals. What a boon plen'" of money would be to mankind! Sue da to Weyler's experiment and death to the traitor who tries to prevent its Buooesa by raising prices or by refusing to accept Wey-. ler's handsome promises 1 Two Republican Suggestion* to Confront, The retirement from circulation of United States notes is a step to be token in our progress-toward a safe and stable currency which should be accepted as the policy and duty of the government and the interest and security of tbe people. — President E. B. Hayes in His Au- uual Message to Congress Deo. 6, 1880, The several forms of our paper money offer, in my judgment, a constant embarrassment to the, government and to a safe balance iu the treasury.
