! CAPTURE OF DAVIS. i f«UE STORY OF THE TAKING OF THE ; PRESIDENT OF THE CONFEDERACY. THE UPPBK DBS MOINES: ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, JANtJABY 19, 189& Fourth Michigan Cavalry His Cap. tors—Those With the Ex-President at the time—Exaggerated Stories of His Disguise. . Our cavalry corps went into camp in and afound Macon, and in the early part of May it was learned that Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederate states, was fleeing for Texas to join General Kirby Smith, there to try and re-establish the Confederacy. Orders •Were at once issued by General Wilson for his capture. The First Wisconsin cavalry was ordered out on the north or east bank of the Ocmulgee river, and Colonel Minty ordered out his old regiment, the Fourth Michigan cavalry, down the south or west side of the same river, with instructions to intercept and capture Mr. Davis and the party with him. Colonel (since General) 'Minty, well known in this city, now a railroad official in the west, was one of the finest and most efficient officers in the late war. His command, with Wilder's, in the foremost front, opened the battle on the noted and bloody field of Chickamauga. At Abbeyville, 70 miles south of Macon, it was learned that Davis' fleeing .party had here crossed the ferry over the Oomulgee and were moving southward toward Irwinsville, Ga., 80 milea below and 100 miles south of Macon. Lieutenant Colonel B. D. Pritchard, in command of the Fourth Michigan cavalry, marched the regiment rapidly down the river road, and after a 80 mile ride reached Irwinsville late in the night and learned that he had got in advance of the Davis party. Early on the morning of the 10th of May he charged into the camp of the "fleeing Confederacy," and Mr. Davis never joined Kirby Smith in Texas. Many false and nonsensical stories have been related about this capture and different regiments given its credit. Now these are the facts: Jefferson Davis was captured by the Fourth Michigan cavalry in the early morning of May 10, 1865, at Irwins- ville in southern Georgia. With him were Mr. John H. Reagan of Texas, his postmaster general; Captain Moody of Mississippi, an old neighbor of the Davis family; Governor Lubbock of Texas and Colonels Harrison and Johnson of his staff; Mrs. Davis and her four children—Maggie, some 10 years old; Jeff, about 8; Willie, 5, and a girl baby—a brother and sister of Mrs. Davis, a white and one colored servant woman, a small force of cavalry, a fow others and a small train of horses, mules, wagons and ambulances. Among the horses were a span of carriage horses presented to Mrs. Davis by the citizens of Richmond during the heyday of the Confederacy; also a splendid saddle horse, the pride of the ex-president himself. On the llth of May, the next day after the capture, and while on our way back to Macon, as officer of the .guard over the distinguished prisoners, I rode by the side of Mr. Reagan, later a senator from Texas. I found him a very fine gentleman. During that day's march a courier from Macon notified us in printed slips of the $100,000 reward offered for Mr. Davis' capture, and which notice connected Davis with the assassination of President Lincoln. When Mr. Reagan read the notice, he earnestly protested that Mr. Davis had no connection whatever with that sorrowful affair. History has shown that he had none. Besides the suit of men's clothing worn by Mr. Davis he had on when captured Mrs. Davis' large waterproof dress or robe, thrown over his own fine gray suit, and a blanket shawl thrown over his head and shoulders. This shawl and robe were finally deposited in the archives of the war department at Washington by order of Secretary Stanton. The story of the "hoopskirt, sunbonnet and calico wrapper" had no real existence and was started in the fertile brains of the reporters and in the illustrated papers of that day. That was a perilous moment for Mr. Davia He had the right to try to escape in any disguise he could use. There were many interesting incidents connected with this capture, but I have not the time now to relate them. Of the children of this noted couple Maggie grew up, married and is now living in Colorado. One of the boys died early. One grew to manhood, married and died With yellow'fever near Memphis since the war, and that "girl baby" grew up to' womanhood and is now a talented and beautiful young lady and known as " Winnie, the daughter of the Oonfeder- My mind reverts to those days of the war, and I often think of that scene and the march back from Irwinsville, through the somber pine woods, swamps and plantations of southern Georgia. Therein the ambulance with his wife and baby was Jefferson Davis, a prisoner of war.

" 'Tain't BO easy to w«mo; answered the boy, hardl great the troth he had hit oago post. ._ Two Friends. The late Mr. H. C. Bunner, the editor of Puck, and Lawrence Button were the closest of friends. IHiey began, says Mr. Hntton, in his sad reminiscence of his dead friend, published in The Bookman, in that often desirable fashion, "with a little aversion." Each avoided even an introduction to the other until fate actually threw them together, not to be parted more. Their mutual "good times" were dear at the moment and "pleasant, too, to think on." There was much "excellent fooling" there, and when Button was married it but added a third desirable member to the company. The marriage itself shows on what terms of happy nonsense they lived. Mr. Button says: He and Mr. Telford and I spent together at the Westmoreland and in Bunner's rooms the last evening of my single life. Be had heard that luck would be insured if the groom, on the occasion of his marriage, would wear ' 'something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue." He urged, therefore, my appearance next day in a pair of socks procured especially by him for me. One was absolutely unworn, the other had seen service and was darned, but they were both blue. And I must borrow them. Mr. Telford, I remember, lent me a necktie for the same purpose, and both of those dear boys were married, when their time came, in something blue that was borrowed from me. When Bnnner was married, we sent his wife a traveling clock as a wedding gift, to which I attached a card bearing these lines: For old time's sake Will you and H. C. B. At this time take The time from mine and tnot Time is, time was. Let time be old or new, The times for us Are high old times with you. To this the lady responded: I lack the time, in spite of time from you, To write the heartfelt thanks I feel are due. But every passing hour while time endures Shall speak to me and mine of you and yours. RULES FOR CANDY MAKING. Mrs. Borer T«1U How Confections May toe Made at Home. Mrs. S. T. Borer tells how to make candies at home in The Ladies' Home Journal and gives the following rules, which insure tho success of the work: "Never stir the sugar and water after the sugar has dissolved. Wipe down constantly the granules forming on the side of the saucepan. Do not shake or move the saucepan while the simp is boiling. As soon as the sugar begins to boil watch it carefully, having in your hand a bowl of ice water, so that you may try the sirup almost constantly. Have everything in readiness before beginning. If the sugar grains, use it for old fashioned cream candy or sugar taffy. It cannot be used for fondant Use only the best granulated sugar for boiling and confectioners' XXX for kneading. If your fondant grains without apparent cause, you may have boiled it a little too long. A few drops of lemon juice or a little cream of tartar will prevent this. Fondant is the soft mixture which forms both the inside of the French candies and the material in which they are dipped, and it is to obtain this that the sugar is boiled. "After the sugar has reached the 'soft ball,' a semihard condition, it must be poured carefully into a large meat plate or on a marble slab. Do not scrape the saucepan or yon will granulate the sirup. Make your fondant one day and make it up into candy the nest. Never melt fondant by placing the saucepan immediately on tho stove. Prevent the danger of scorching by standing the pan containing it in a basin of water. If the melted fondant is too thick, add water most cautiously, a drop at a time. A half teaspoonful more than is necessary will ruin the whole. To cool candy place it in a cool, dry place. To keep candy put it between layers of waxed paper in tin boxes. If the day is bright and clear, the sugar loses its stickiness quickly, therefore select a fine day for your candy making." - HORSES IN HISTORY. SOME OF THE NOBLE STEEDS THAT HAVE ACHIEVED FAME. The Pour Footed Friend Tot Whom ft City "Was Named— Roman Horses That Lived tike Princes— Charger* Who Won Amid the Carnaee of War. One of the Rarest Books. Among the books of a comparatively recent date, if the seventeenth century can be described as such, is, as the Elzevir collector well knows, the famous "Patissier Francois," a small duodecimo printed by Louys and Daniel Elzevir at Amsterdam in 1655. A faulty and poor reimpression of a work of little value issued in Paris two years previously, this book has become the most sought after of all he Elzevir works, just because it is wrongly thought to be the scarcest. It has fetched prices reaching in France as high as 4,600 francs. Tho reason for the supposed rarity is of course that, instead of being placed on its first appearance on the shelves of the curious or the studious, the little volume was thumbed to pieces by the greasy hands of cooks and kitchen maids. Genuine enthusiasts in the printer's art have hoped to see the price diminished in presence of the revelations lately furnished concerning it. Its market value, however, shows no signs of diminution, and that one copy, sold in England during the last seven or eight years, fetched at Sotheby's on June 10, 1895, the sale being that of the Earl of Orford, the preposterous price of £100. —Gentleman's Magazine. NAMES WE MISSED. Out Must Conquer If They Want Shelter. The German soldier, says the London News, carries his own house on his back —that is to say, his share of a shelter tent. The stout pieces of waterproof sheeting are joined together so as to form three sides of a square, and the men are saved from the worst in wind and rain. The idea of the shelter tent in sections is no new one. The French had it many years ago in their tente d'abri. It has many advantages. It reduces the baggage of the army, and it enables the soldier to go into lodgings at once on reaching the scene of the bivouac. Troops often suffer miserable discomfort in waiting for hours for their heavy tents. The Germans have no faith in these cumbrous contrivances. They have often sent whole armies into the field without any sort of shelter. Their theory is that if the men win a battle they will find all they want in the towns and villages, and that if they lose it they will have no time to pitch tents. The shelter tent seems a compromise between these views. Some of tho Titles Intended For Geographical Divisions. It was intended that Maryland should be called Crescentia, but Charles I changed it to Terra Mariac, in honor of his wife, and we made it Mary's Laud; hence Maryland (home pronunciation, Merrylon). William Peun wanted to call his state New Wales, but afterward decided upon Sylvauia, to which the king prefixed the word Peun. In 1784 an ordinance was drawn up as follows: "The territory northward of the forty- fifth degree—that is to say, of the completion of the forty-fifth degree from the equator and extending to the Lake of the Woods—shall be called Sylvania." See what we missed! The territory under the forty-fifth arid forty- fourth degrees which lies westward of Lake Michigan was to be called Michi- gania, while that to the eastward, within the peninsula formed by the lakes and waters of Michigan, Huron, St. Glair and Erie, was to be called Chersonesus. Heaven forbade. Of tho territory lying under the forty- third and forty-second degrees, that to the westward, called Assenisipia; that to the eastward, in which are the sources of the Muskingum, the two Miamis of tho Ohio, the Wabash, the Illinois, the Miamis of the lake, and the Saudusky rivers, was to bo called Mesopotamia. The country through which the Illinois river runs was to bo called Illiuoia; the next joining to the eastward, Saratoga, and that between the last and Pennsylvania, extending from tho Ohio to Lake Erie, Washington. All that region adjacent to which are the confluences of the Wabash, Shawnee, Tanisee, Ohio, Illinois, Mississippi and Missouri rivers, was to be called Polytamia, and that farther up the Ohio, Pelisipia. Verily, a watchful Providence seems to have guarded us from these afflictions.—New York Press. „ them, Man's Bitterest Enemy. "Sin is always man's bitterest enemy," writes Dwight L. Moody in "Mr Moody's Bible Class" in the Ladies' Home Journal. "It separates him from his Maker. It separates him from his fellow beings. No position is too high for sin to debase; no place so hallowed but it seeks to corrupt; no home so sacred but it seeks to destroy. Sin, like holiness, is a mighty leveler, says a distinguished divine. And what may be the cause of the thousands of suicides which have occurred during the past year if it is not a loathing of self? It is sin, then, which makes a man loathe himself. It is sin which makes man s life become a burden from which he so often seeks to free himself by his own hand." ___________ Origin of the Sidesaddle. The use of the side saddle for women riders is traced to the time of Anne of Bohemia, eldest daughter of the emperor of Germany, who married Richard IT of England. Previous to this date all English women bestrode their horses in manly fashion, but on account of a deformity this German bride was to use a side saddle, and the custom general.--.Pittsburg Dispatch. He Knew. "Before permitting you to pass to the front," said tho officer in charge of the telegraphy to the war correspondent, "I desire to know whether you are qualified to report our actions in the field." The war correspondent bowed and awaited the pleasure of the great man. "In the first place," continued the soldier, "I should like a definition of the phrase, 'fiendish atrocity."' The correspondent smiled as if he considered the question altogether too easy. "Fiendish atrocities," he said, "are murders committed by the other side." "Correct," returned the officer. "Now, what is 'just vengeance?' " "Just vengeance," answered the correspondent, "is the term used to designate murders committed by our side. "Correct again," returned the officer. "I will give you an order that will take you through all the lines."—Strand Magazine. Animal Worship. Swine were adored in Crete, weasels at Thebes, rats and mice in Troas, porcupines in Persia, tho lapwing in Ne\» Mexico, bulls in Benares, serpents in Greece and many of the African countries. The Hindoos never molest snakes. They call them fathers, brothers, friends and other endearing names. On the coast of Guinea a hog happening to kill a snake, the king gave orders that all the swine should be destroyed.

Timuiins — I have never been able to make up my mind whether I am a genius or not. Simmons— It is easily tested. Just act like a hog when you are in society, and if you are a genius people wil) admire you for it-T^Indianapolis Journal- It is hard to say with any near approach to accuracy how long the horse has been a domesticated animal. We can only say that he has been so from time immemorial — that is, from the earliest times of which we have any records. The Assyrian sculptures — and they are about the most ancient of which we know anything, for some of them. are estimated to date from 4200 B. C.— contain more representations of caparisoned horses than even men. Still, we do not get any examples of favorite horses until a long time after this. Even the first examples, indeed, are only legendary, for, though there is no doubt that Hector of Troy existed, it is not improbable that Homer invented the names of his three favorite horses, Poderge, the cream colored Galathe and the fiery Ethon. But the horse of Alexander the Great, Bucephalus, is an individual as historically real as his master. This famous horse was, says Plutarch, offered to Philip for 13 talents (about £3,518), but he displayed so much vi- cionsness that Alexander's father was about to send him away when the young prince offered to tamo him. Ho agreed, in the event of failure, to forfeit tho price of the horse and began by turning his head to the sun, as ho observed that the horse was frightened at his own shadow. In the end he completely tamed him — so completely, indeed, that Bucephalus, though he would permit nobody except Alexander to mount him, always knelt down for that purpose to his master. He died at tho age of 80, and his master built as Ms mausoleum the city of Bucephala. Readers of Macaulay will remember the famous black Auster, the horse of Merminins, and the dark gray charger of Maniilius, whose sudden appearance in the city of Tusculum without his master brought the news of tho defeat of the allies at Lake Regillus. Connected with that battle, too, were the horses of the great "twin brethren," Castor and Pollux, coal black, with white legs and tails. But those are legendary. Not so, however, the well known horse of Caligula, Incitatus. This animal had a stable of marble; his stall was of ivory, his clothing of purple and his halters stiff with gems. He had a set of golden plates and was presented with a palace, furniture and slaves complete, in order that guests invited in his name should be properly entertained. His diet was the most costly that could be imagined, the finest grapes that Asia could provide being reserved for him. Verns, another Roman emperor about a century later, treated his horse almost as extravagantly. He fed him with raisins and almonds with his own hands, and when he died erected a statue of gold to him, while all the dignitaries of the empire attend ed the funeral. As we come to later times, so we get more examples of favorite horses. William the Conqueror had one which he rode at the battle of Hastings, about which almost everything seems to be known except his nanio. He was of huge size and was a present from King Alfonso of Spain — "such a gift as a prince might give and a prince receive. " This gallant horse, however, did not survive the battle, for Gyrth, Harold's butcher, "clove him with a bill, and he died." Richard I's horse was called Maleck, and was jet black. He bore his master through the holy war and arrived in England before him. In fact, he survived the king several years. The second Richard, too, had a favorite horse, called Roan Barbary, which was supposed to be the finest horse in Europe at that time, and it was on Roan Barbary that tho young king was mounted when the incident wherein Wat Tyler was stabbed by the mayor of Walworth took place. About a century later we get the Wars of the Roses, and in the many battles of that civil disturbance a couple of horses played important parts. These belonged to the great Earl of Warwick, the kingmaker. His first was Maleck, a beautiful gray, which he rode at the battle of Towton. It was this horse whose death turned the fortunes of the battle, for Warwick, seeing that his men were giving ground, deliberately sprang from his favorite horse and killed him. Then his men knew that the kingmaker was prepared to conquer, but not to fly. They rallied and finally won the battle. There were two horses belonging to highwaymen which were famous in their time. One of them belonged to the celebrated knight of the road, Paul Clifford. He was called Robin and was Irish. In color iron gray, he was reputed by judges pf horseflesh — and there were some who were quite as competent to give an opinion, if not more go, as any of the present day — to be absolutely without blemish and to be second to none. Another famous horse, or rather mare, was Black Bess. Her owner, Dick Turpin, or, to give him his correct name, Nicks, committed a robbery in London at 4 o'clock in the morning, and, fearing discovery, made for Gravesend, ferried across the river and appeared at the bowling green in York the same evening, having accomplished his ride of 800 miles in 16 hours on one horse. At least so says the legend, and this is certain— that on his trial he was acquitted, the jury considering it impossible that he could have got to York in the time, — London Standard. _ «CUa«M» Cheap lAbof* to Aanert*. Of late yea*s there has been a constant cry against "Chinese cheap labor." Whatever may have been th« price put upon Chinese labor when tbi great railways of the west were built bfj these people, today it is evident to all who have studied the question that there is no such thing as "Chinete cheap labor." Chinese laundries charge higher rates than domestic laundries. Chinese lanndtymen command highal prices than laundresses of other nation* ftlities. A Chinaman earns ordinarilj from $8 to $10 a week and his board and lodging. The white or colored lann- dress makes from $4 to $10 a week without board or lodging. The Chinaman works from 8 o'clock in the morning until 1 or 2 o'clock at night Sometimes he washes, sometimes he starches, sometimes he irons, but he is always at it, not tireless, but persevering in spite of weariness and exhaustion. Other laborers clamor for a working day of eight hours. The Chinaman patientlj works 17, takes care of his relatives in China, looks after his own poor in America and pays his bills as he goes along. In the Chinese store $10 per week U the lowest sum paid for a man of al\ work. In » Chinese restaurant the lowest wage paid to a kitchen boy is $25 per month and board. Chinese cooks will not go to American families for less than $40 per month, and they rarely ever stay for that sum. This, then, is Chinese cheap labor—a cheap labor of which ordinary people cannot avaU themselves.—"The Chinese of New York," by Helen F. Clark, in Century. Read what is said of it by those who have tried it. That is the proof. Two Big Oaks, the Sisters. On the banks of Cooper's creek, about four miles from Oarnden, N. J., two very largo white oaks stood. The property was once owned by Mr. Kay, who named them for his two daughters. These trees survived the family so long that the writer was unable to learn thu names given them, nnd the trees seem to bo the only memorial of the family. One was prostrated by a strong wind about two years ago. Tho one still standing measures 20 feet in circumference, in height about 75 feet, and the branches extend from the trunk about 85 feet each way. Tho fallen one was 17 feet in circumference, and 216 fence- posts were cut from the branches. Wo think tho practice of planting and naming trees as memorials an estimable one, and a tablet giving the date of planting should bo attached.—Rodolfus Bingham, Camdon, N. J. The attaching of the names of friends to trees is a pleasant practice. This can be done either by planting a tree especially for the person or by associating tho name with one already growing. The Herne of Shakespeare did not plant the oak, but Herne'a oak is just as famous as if it had been planted for him or by him. It is to be regretted that the I wish to announce to the public that I will furnish the medicine and doctor your hogs free of charge if I do not save 50 per cent, or over; but in this case I must have notice within 12 hours of tho time the first hog gets sick, as the disease only lasts about SO hours till the hog is past redemption. Or I will sell my medicine on a perfect guarantee if you feed my remedy before the hogs come down; if the hogs die I will refund the money, or you may place the money in any bank in Algona till you try my remedy. I know, if the hogs are healthy when you begin with it, they never will contract any contagious disease. Sutt's Hog Cholera Preventative is not a cure-all, but a preventer, so don't wait till the hogs are dead before you commence using it. It costs you nothing to try it. One small pig will pay for enough to feed all the rest, and if the rest die that one would also. And then I refund your money and you are ahead the price of one pig, anyway. I have cured lots of sick hogs and can cure at least 50 per cent, myself; but I doubt very much that you do that well if your hogs were all sick at once, as some have fever while others have chills, and a hog must not be doctored the same for fever as for CHILLS; and a word of notice—Sutt's Hog Cholera Preventative will rid the hogs and especially small pigs of worms, which are the most destructive, for as soon as the hog gets sick and quits eating, the stomach name of the lady who was associated with this grand old oak cannot now be given. Certainly it would add materially to its interest. A white oak is a pleasure in itself.— Meehan's Monthly. the matter?" me, pa*d,'< said the va- just went in there and asked Most of the men in the islands ot southwest Japan lead lives of idleness and are cheerfully supported by the women.

There is in Lowell a boy, differing in no respect from his companions, who has this power in a marked degree. Every stray dog or cat in the neighborhood knows him and loves to bo in his company. A vicious horse which the stableman can with difficulty handle will stand like a lamb while he harnesses and unharnesses him. The doves fly around him, and in the .woods the wild birds apparently regard him as a friend and ally. The most remarkable exhibition of his power, which has long been known and commented on by his friends, was given the other day. A large and vicious rat was captured in the stable in one of those traps which permit of easy ingress and no egress. The men who were looking at the animal were afraid to go near the trap, the animal showed such terror, but the boy, when he beheld the imprisoned creature, fearlessly put out his finger and stroked its head, the rat manifesting as much pleasure as would a cat or dog.—London Star. Slipped In His English. Many funny stories are told about the famous maestro, Signer Arditti, and his efforts at expression in the not too familiar English tongue. The best, perhaps, relates his impromptu speech some years ago at the promenade concert, when Mile, de Lido had been detained by a railway breakdown, and, having no time to put on evening attire, she sat for the moment in a private box while the conductor begged the indulgence of the audience, who naturally would have been astonished to see her in traveling costume. Signor Arditti boldly took the plunge. ' 'Ladies and gentlemen," he said, "Mile, de Lido is undressed in a box. But she will sing if youweesh." And the wicked prome- naders laughingly shouted an immediate affirmative.—London Tit-Bits. One Better.
