TIIKKEPUBUUAN, ALOOMA, 1O\VA, WEDNESDAY JUNE 17, 1806. WAR REMINISCENCES. YOUNd CORPORAL JIM. 'Twas down Ih the valley In sixty-four, Just one year ere the war was o'er, That young Jlrft joined us, gallant and gay As a full-fledged private In old Troop K. His eyes were as big and as bright as a girl's, And close to his head crept his short tawny curls, And his figure was graceful and lithe and slim, An d. willow that grows near the river's brim. lie was only a lad, not beyond eighteen, .But the things that he knew and sights ho had seen Were marvelous even to soldiers old, And though gentle in nature his spirit was bold, So they made him a corporal so gallant and gay, And he carried the guidon in old Troop K. 'Twas a close June morning, the east Just gray With the faintest glimmer of breaking day; The trumpets were sounding the reveille, When off to the north, like a surging sea Came the rattle of muskets, the rolling of drums, And to arms sang the trumpets, to arms, the foe comes! 'Twas the prettiest fight, sir, you ever did see, Though from where we lay low in reserve with Troop B It seemed that the Johnnies were having their way, Till the general sent word for a charge by Troop K. "Prepare to mount.mount!" just as coolaa ' at drill. "Trot," "Gallop," then "Charge!" and wd rode for the hill. At the very first volley both officers dropped. For a moment we wavered, we almost were stopped, When just like a flash to the front young Jim popped, Waved the guidon on high while we all held our breath, And then like a hero rode straight to his death. Did we carry the place? Just you read the report That Phil Sheridan made, to the point, sharp and short; "While the troops all fought well, the event of the day Was the taking of Mound Hill by galloping K." And Jim, yes, we found him quite close to the hill, Shot clean through the head, sir, all qulel and still. Fast clasping the guidon he lay on the sod, His young bonny face turned straight up to his God. We burled him close to the spot where he fell From that death-dealing shower of bullets and shell We gave him a headstone, the best that we could, Not much 'twas to look at, of unpainted wood, But one fellow, a poet, wrote this on the board: "Corp'l Jim, who died game in his boots and the Lord." —Thomas H. Wilson, in N. Y. Sun. HURRAHED FOR LOGAN. An Incident That Occurred at the Sacking of Columbia. In yoxir issue oil February 20, 1896,1 read of Gen. Howard's account of the sacking 1 of Columbia, S. C., on the night of February 17, 1805, •...Thfyscenes de- ascribed rose vividly in my memory. I will relate an incident that 1 witnessed about 11 o'clock p. m..on that, night. On the raid through the Carolinas J •commanded a battalion of detached cavalry under Gen. Beckwith, chief commissary of subsistence. As soon as the pontoons were laid over Brpad river I "CLEAR THE TRACK!" crossed with CO of iny men, and I believe we were the first mounted troops in the city. About. 11 o'clock p. m., when the fire was raging and entirely beyond control, I arid about six of my men sat on our horess at the end of one of the business streets. The smoke utterly filled the street, and it seemed impossible for anyone to live between the burning buildings. Gens. Logan and Blair, with staff officers and escort, were there also, discussing the situation. Logan turned to Blair and said: "General, these men who are doing 1 this work belong to the Seventeenth corps. You had better take care of them." Blair did not reply, but pulled his slouch hat down over his left eye and leaned forward in his saddle. At this momen^ the attention of all was attracted to'ft cry coming from the smoky street: ,, . '; "Clear the track! Clear the trnclf!" Soon there cajne out of the smoke an old chaise with the top thrown back, a lean, gaunt mule in the shafts, a soldier on his back, and in the chaise three of his comrades. All bad on extra high plug hats, white, and each, carried a tin vessel filled with whisky. The outfit pulled up to within 40 feet of the two generals. But it was some time before the men could get the smoke out of their t-yes. They realized that they were in close proximity to their commanding officer. One of the soldiers staggered to his feet and shouted: **We belong to the Fifteenth corps. Hurrah for Gen, Log-an!" Gen. Blair turned aud looked at Logan, who in turn rode away, followed by staff and escort. It is almost needless to say those soldiers were not p u »- jslied.—Maj. II. M. Kendcrdjne, in Nft- Tribjjne, THE YOUNGEST VETERAN. FnlrlKinkfl, of Situ Clulmfl the Distinction. Joseph Fairbanks, who served a« ;i private In the federal army from July 1, 1801. to June 23. 1805. and has boon a resident of San Francisco most of the. time sinci; then, claims to be the, youngest veteran of the civil \vnr who carried n musket in that great contest between the north and youth. "I see that John K. Watson claims to be tfle youngest veteran of the \vnr." he said. "He isn't, though, and I can prove it. He didn't enlist till 1801. Why, niiin nlive, I'd been fighting three years then and had been in over ~M battles nnd was still about the same age as he." Then Mr. Fairbanks told of his experiences. He was a newsboy at Albany, N. Y., and a fa.vorite among the officers of the cnmp near that city. They gave him many privileges not accorded other youngsters. "On,e day William. King, captain of company No. 1 of the Thirty-fourth New York infantry, asked me why 1 didn't go fo-r a soldier. I had got the army fever and it was jnst what 1 wanted. So I said: 'But am 1 big enough ?' "Ho looked at me and called n soldier and told him to give me his gun. Then I put it a.t charge and the soldier pressed against the bayonet with his chest till it hurt him, but he couJcln't push me back, so Cnpt. King said I'd do and I enlisted. That was July 1, 1801. I was then 12 years 1 month and 8 days old, but I was big for my nge and strong." Young Fairbanks was at once sent to Washington and joined the nrmy of the Potomac, wherft. he at first followed the fortunes of Gen. McClellan nnd saw most of the awful fighting in Virginia and Pennsylvania. To substantiate his claims he hus the testimony of K. H. Webber, of 2225 Larkin street, who has been a letter carrier in this city for many yiears. Webber was then a young man of 20, and in the long marches through Virginia swamps he often carried his boy-comrade's gun and blanket as well as his own. When Fairbank's term of service expired he enlisted for three years in company K of the Seventh New York Jieavy artillery. He was ordered to Fort Eeno, just back of Washington, but was employeYl by Grant in the infantry and was at Fort McIIenry, in Maryland, when mustered out of tlie service with an honorable discharge. It was not till long- after the war that he suffered materially from the wounds he received in the service. Latterly he has been unable to leave his bed, and has been reduced to absolute want, his pension of $11 a month, increased by what his oldest boy makes selling- papers, being- the sole support of a large family. He is too proud to ask hefp, but has from time to time received assistance from old comrades, who have sent food and clothing and money to his home sit 50 l /o Norfolk street, ire is a comrade of Lincoln post No. 1. G. A. R. — Sn;i Francisco Call. ____ A STORY OF RO3ECRANS. He Was Present When He Was ttelng Sworn At. "The thing's a person bears while traveling incognito," said an army ofli- cer, "are not always vory complimentary to himself." "Has anything- of that kind been occurring in your experience?" asked the Star man. "No; I wouldn't tell the story if that were the case, but this IB on some one else. The incident of which I am re- 'vou FOOLS!" minded occurred during the late unpleasantness. The army of the Cumberland was making- a march in a driving rainstorm — the infantry foot deep in mud, the cavalry mud-bespattered, the wagons and artillery frequently stalled. Several officers were riding 1 along the road when they saw a cannon almost helplessly imbedded in the all-pervading mud of a cornfield. At the suggestion of the leader they left their mounts and, wading over to the group working to extricate this impler ment of war, lent their assistance. The imeu were cursing the weather, the mjid, the horses, the gun, and more particularly an,d witli greater freedom, Gen. Rosecrans,, who, they said, £ad go| them into all the trouble. In the lattej? particular they were all very fluent, with the exception of one trooper who was pushing at the wheel with one of the officers who was working hardest. While the others were doing brilliant work in the way of reviling the general, he remained silent. Finally the gini was extricated from its earthy bed, aud the unrecognized officers departed. Then the silent soldier spoke: "Don't you know, you blame fools." he said, "that Gen. JJoseerans w,as push ing- that wheel with me?" "This story," concluded the officer, "was related tp me by Gen. Kosecrans, who appeared to enjoy the joke at his ."— Washington Star. —"Go to the dickens" is a popular abbreviation and corruption of " £ 4eyjlkjng," or little PAID o.>i£ i\\ A fi!vj£. Not Legal Tomlor In Amonnts at More Tluin 'fwetityt'lve Cents. riH-rt' is a postimisu-r in u little town not far distiint. who is noted for the amount of authority he is inclined to in trivial mutters. A short time says the Mount Morris (Mich.) Union. H business ninn of the place, appeared before the stamp window of the office and demanded 300 one-cent stumps, for which he laid down an equal number of pennies. Here was a good clinncc for the authoritative gentleman, dnd with a view of teaching his importance, he picked 25 pennies from the heap, handed out. 25 stamps and shoved the rest of the money to the wptild-be buyer with the remark that pennies were not legal tender t.hcre in amounts of more than 25 cents. Expostulation was in vain, the postmaster cited the law in the case and that seemed to settle it. With a malicious gleam in his eye the buyer sweptthe remaining pennies into his poejcet and mildly inquired: "I suppose I can get a one-cent stamp here for a penny, can't I?" "Certainly," said the man at the window. "Then give me a one-cent stamp," said the other laying- clown the money. It was handed to him, and he demanded another and another after that. Several people had come in in tho meantime, nnd were impatiently waiting their turn nt the window, but the obdurate buyer kept on gravely buying 1 one-cent stamps on the installment plan. Seeing 1 determination in the face of the other, the postmaster oftered to arbitrate, but it was of no avail. He continued to buy as long as his money lasted, and triumphantly departed amidst the approving smiles of the crowd. AFTER THE ARMADA. The Combination of Trade uncl Private War Under Elizabeth. The defeat of the Armada inspired England with energy and hope. Our people, says Blackwood's Magazine, became busy traders. Flemish traders had been ruined by war, Flemish refugees haa flocked into England, and Antwerp, the great port for new world commerce, had been sacked and taken. England succeeded to the trade of which the Dutch had been deprived. Beyond the ocean lay a vast world of wealth, of which Spain, united with Portugal, claimed the monopoly, thereby excluding English commerce from the. larger half of the planet. Systematic vio- lence—tha-t is, the combination of trade with private war—was the only mode in which this mouopoly could be attacked. Elizabeth connived at this covert maritime war both before and ufte.r the Armada, and the struggles between English traders and monopolists were far too numerous and important to admit of peace between the two governments. It was this spirit of commercial adventure, whether it be called piracy or a heroic attempt to rescue the new world from the inquisition and give it back to thc> free use of the human race, which was the first step in the development of three colossal growths— British trade, British empire, the British navy. CAVALRY HORSES. Army Boards' Rigid inspection Discourages South Dakota Dreetlcrs. John D. Hale, of Tilford, one of the most prominent stockmen in South Dakota, some months ago received the contract for furnishing the Eighth cavalry at Fort Meade with some 70 or SO horses. Notwithstanding that he visit- .ecl practically every prominent horse ranch in western South Dakota, eastern Wyoming and southeastern Montana in the eiVort to secure horses that would pass the rigid inspection, every horse so far turned in for inspection has been rejected. The horses were t'he very best that could be procured, experience having shown them to be the hardiest animals to be found in the United States. Some of the -horses could not be purchased on the range or in the markets of Chicago and New York for $250 each. Mr. Hale says he offered one man $300 for a team of handsome grays, provided they passed the inspection. The animals were submitted, but, while, the board admitted that they were a fine- looking pair, they were declared not suitable for cavalry. Horse raisers are discouraged at the result and say that any board that holds strictly to the requirements of the government in the selection of cavalry horses would not be able to get enough horses in the whole United States to mount one cavalry regiment. The Chinese Flag. The flag of China is one of the gayest among ensigns. The body of the flag is a pale yellow. In the upper left hand corner is a small red sun. Looking intently at the sun is a fierce Chinese dragon. The dragon's belly is a brilliant red and white. His green back is covered with stiff knobs. He is standing on his two bind paws and the left forefoot. His feet are five-toed and slightly booked. His long, five-forked tail stretches away in the rear. The djagpn's peek is arcjied • back, His mouth is wide open and he looks as if be were about, to. tyy to s,wajjp\v the red sun. . « 'of Den mark, Out of 226,000 farms in Denmark only 1,900 are over 250 acres in extent ami most of them are worked by their owners. By their great technical knowledge of ithear husjness and the gradual change from gTQwing grain to brewing cattle and dairy farming the Danish farmers have suffered less from transatlantic competition, than those of any European country.

English Children I,ihc to Play It tfl the Days of Early Spring. Tip and run is a game our English cousins are just learning—both boys and girls. It resembles cricket, so some one says, as a caricature resembles its original. It is a game to play early in tho. spring-, before cricket or tennis ca.n be thought of, and it has this advantage over golf, that it can be played on lawns or garden plots without damage to the turf. Tip and run involves much exercise of a rather severe kind. This is the manner of it: The fair guardian of the wicket, armed with a bat or even a racket, takes her stand, and as soon as she has hit the bowler's ball, is bound to run as fast as she can between the wickets, as failure to hit or to run involves discomfiture and an immediate successor at the bat. The score mounts up rapidly, as an expert batswoman hits each time and flies to and fro like a ball herself, until she can be dislodged by three successive failures to hit her ball. The other players field out, with a success generally less than more. Bowling usually taxes the skill of fair players more than batting. They do not, as a rule, bowl with the mechanical skill which marks the masculine player. Eleven is the proper number for each team to tip and run; when men are permitted to reinforce the eleven, they play left-handed or bat with broomsticks. But, even thus handicapped, they often seem to be more than a match for their fair antagonists, though there be elevens, and there are those, who can well hold their own tipon the level green, and are afraid of no man's prowess and understand all the intricacies of the game. The maiden possessed of Atalanta's speed and grace will doubtless prove the prize player at tip and run, but every girl who indulges in the game will find herself the better and the rosier for the fresh air, sunshine and exercise it gives her.—Chicago Inter Ocean. THE ALPINE VULTURE. Bird That Has a Decided, Preference for II u mini 1'rey. . In the canton of Ural a woman was living in 1S54 who had been carried off by u lammergeier, or Alpine vulture, when a baby. At Hundwcl, in the canton of Appenzell, a chile! was carried off in sight of parents. On the Silberalp a vulture attaoked a little boy who was watching sheep, seated on a rock, and Lad time to knock him over the edge of the cliff before the shepherds coulil drive the bird away. At Murren, above the valley of Lnuterbrunnen, a vulture carried an infant to an inaccessible rock opposite the village and devoured it. But th« most striking instance of tlie child-devouring tendency of these birds occurred in the Bernese Oberland. A child three years old, called Anne Zurbuchen, was taken up to the high Alp at hay-making time and left asleep •while the father fetched a load of hay. He returned to find the child gone. At the same time another peasant, called Henri Michel, was coming up the mountain by a rough path when he heard a child cry. At the same time he saw a lammergeier raise and sail away. Tfunniiig- up to the place he found the little girl, unhurt except for wounds in the arm and left hand, where the bird had clutched her. She had lost her socks, shoes and cap while being- transported by the bird, the distance traversed being- about 350 yards. Tlio facts were all entered in the parish archives of the village of Hak,eren, and the girl, who lived to be an old woman, was. always known as "Geier-Anni."— London Spectator. INSTRUCTIVE PASTIME. How an Oak Trao May Bo Grown lu a Tumbler of Water. An oak tree has n. very humble beginning. When it first sprouts from the acorn it has a fragile green stem and looks something- like a young'pea plant. To examine it at this stage of its existence one cay scarcely imagine that some day it may become a huge oak. Any boy or girl con sprout an oak tree in a tumbler without much difficulty. Take an acorn and run a threaded needle very carefully a little way undey the shell on one side, draw the thread through and suspend the acorn BO that it j| partly submerged in,the water of a, tujpbjer, as; shqw.n in tlie cyt, ^eep in a =vyorin place, an'd' befpte long-the oajf tree will sprout, sending a tender stem upward and a root downward.—Chicago Jtecord. Why Be |s Careful with Cents, A gentleman standing in a hotel lob- byj while taking a match safe from his pocket, accidentally dropped a cent on the floor. He picked it up carefully, anil as he did so said: "I have only lately realized the value of a cent. J have a small account with a trust couir pan.y, and the other day I received, my book, with interest computed at $13.90. I worked at the figures quite awhil-?, and .found that the exact amount was $13,,99%. Then I argued with the secretary that it ought to be $14, but he ould not consent to the increase. So I came to the conclusion that it a company with, a capital of $1,000,000 can fig-qre ojj half cents I ought to be careful "TIP IT." Pustlrtie I'djpnlar Among Lancashire Gamblers. Among the strange sports of Lancashire is a game known variously as "coddam" or "tip it." As the Lancashire man of sporting tendency must have a wager on everything that engages his attention, a lot of money changes hands on this game, generally in a small way, but quite frequently in substantial sums. Iiftleed, says London Answers, there is a recognized champion player of "tip it," who is open to back himself for £ 25 to "lick creation." And this is how it is played: The rival players take a button, or some small article, and sib on opposite sides of a table. The beginner puts his hands under the table, and, taking the button in one of them, raises his closed fists into view, and the business of the other is to say in which hand the button is held. The button changes sides as it is found, and the game goes on until the points are reached. It is often played with two or four a side, and the champion will meet a dozen at a time, and discover the hand holding the button by n sort of instinct. The position of the thumbs <':cides whether the game is "coddam" L !• "tip it." On this trivial pastime hundreds of pounds change hands every year in some parts of Lancashire. THE SYRIAN ARABS. Styles Set by tho Patriarchs Still In Vogne In tho East. The Syrian Arats have changed their style of dress less than any other nationality. At any rate there is no record of its having- changed during- the period covered by human history, either as regards male or femnle dres-H or adornment. Saving only for his firearms, there is no reason to believe that the Bodouin of the desert does not clothe and adorn himself exactly as he did in the days of the Patriarchs, and the women wear their ornaments in the nineteenth century o-f the same shape and in the same style as Sarah and Rebecca did. Among articles of western costume, the two oldest are probably the Highland kilt and the smock-frock of the west country English laborer. It is not probable that e.ither of them has altered much for 1,000 years. The smock-frock was the peasant dress in early Saxon times, and the kilt would seem to be a development of the kirtle or fringed girdle, which was probably the earliest garment worn by man.

There the sport is a national pastime, and a good pigeon frequently wins for its owner large sums of money, the prizes being considerable, to which heavy pools nre nrlrled. A Vicarious Dose.
