But we both shook hands In friend, ship, as hearty as • could be, Though he had mareKed with Sherman, and I had marched with Lee, We walked across the battlefield where once the bullets flew, And the green and bending grasses felt the fall of Crimson dew; And we talked the whole thing over, where the flag was waving free: How he had marched with Sherman, and I had served with Lee. The drums had ceased their beating, we saw no sabres shine; The hair about his forehead fell as snowy white as mine, And voices seemed to call UB o'er the far, eternal sea, Where the men who , marched with Sherman are In camp with those of Lee. We parted; eyes grew misty, for we knew that nevermore We'd meet until the roll call on the other peaceful shore; But both shook hands In friendship, as hearty as could be, Though he had marched with Sherman, and I had fought with Lee. —Frank L.

Twelve of these prisoners we-*"} lined up and shot without provocation by the Confederate officers. Upon hearing of this act the commander of the Federal regiment drafted twelve prisoners to be shot In retaliation. As the line was being formed a young man named William Lear stepped forward and asked permission to take tho place of one of the condemned men, who was his friend. The request was granted and Lear was given the place of bis friend. Marvelous, cures. Tre Vitcaset. BenatoL>r.K'.ln«.931ArcUBt.

At 10 o'clock in the forenoon the valley suddenly narrowed until we had no choice but to take the path leading between two flr-crpwned ridges. We had sighted the Indians the day before, but the night had passed without an alarm and the morning had slipped along without sight of a warrior. Had the savages figured it out that the fifty ot us guarding the ten wagons of clothing and provisions were too strong for them, and that our keeping so well closed up and on the alert made the capture of stragglers Impossible? "Halt!" came the word from the head of the column, and two men were sent ahead to spy out the lay of the land. They found the path only wide enough for the wagons leading downwards and away until it crossed a creek and was lost in the gloom" beyond. Not a bird sang from the branches—not a rabbit skurried away In alarm. There was the silence of death along the path. Foot by foot, with ears bent forward and nostrils dilating, the horses of the scouts moved on, and their riders had the vigilance of men whose lives might be snuffed out at any moment. No danger along the path—no danger lurking at the crossing of the creek. So the scouts reported as they returned to the column, and tbe captain had just opened his lips to give the order to march when a wolf came running up the path and dashed through the column. There was fire in his eyes, but yet his tail was down. "Skeeredl" whispered, an old veteran, "and by Injuns at that! That wolf has bin turned out of his lair by'the reds!" "An ambush down thar to wipe us out!" whispered a second. The captain shaded his eyes with his hand and peered down the path for a moment. Then be quietly said: "Turn the wagons about and keep to the east till we strike another path! Don't hurry—don't shout! Corporal French, strike up 'Dixie Land' and you boys all join in the chorus!" In five minutes we were out of the •nouth of tbe gorge and marching away to the east on the level plain again, and as we marshed every trooper sang tbe chorus of the lively song at the top of his voice. "What Is It? What did the captain see down there?" -was asked from man to man. The captain saw nothing. He was Roar of tlio Cannon. More than twenty years ago we heard a preacher in a sermon declare that since the opening of this century the cannon hod never ceased to roar. That is, there had never been a time during the century when there had not been war somewhere. He said it was a wrong Idea to call this the century of peace. We have watched events since that time and have never seen a time when there was universal peace. War rages somewhere, and when one war is brought to a close another flames out. These are not always great wars, but they are wars all the same. To-day there is war in Abyssinia, Central America, and what may be designated as wars in Central Asia and Farmosa. To-morrow the panorama will change: some of the old .scenes will disappear and new onea will burst on the vision. In this way history Is made. It is doubtful if there ever was a tlmt when the changes were so rapid as al the present time. The increased facilities for intercourse and the perfect means of transportation accelerate both thought and action. As an illustration of this we point to the invasion ol the Transvaal.

A few days only elapsed between Its beginning and end. No such thing could have taken place fifty years ago. We have no way of judging of the future but by the past, was the saying ol an American orator, but in the light of modern events the judgment must be by the very recent past. Judging by that past there is little probability that the time Is near when the roar of tbe cannon will cease to be beard. A Good Hciison.

At one of the engagements In Tennessee a Confederate captain was detailet to support a battery. The Federal troops made a fierce assault and carried off one of the guns. The officer was furious over the loss of tho gun and swore that his men should charge and recapture it. One of the privates who now lives near this place, said "Look here, captain, if the confederate government must have a gun, I propose we chip In and buy one." A hungry Confederate by tbe nam of Johnston walked Into a farmhouse while the family were seated at the supper table. The farmer had been so much troubled with soldiers that he concluded not to invite the man to partake of the meal with him, but to make conversation said to tbe Confederate: "What is your name?" "Take-a-bite," replied the soldier. "What," repeated the farmer, "Take- a-hlte?" "Thanks," said the soldier, "as you insist, I believe I will eat something," and sat down at tbe table.
