Washington Letter in New York Tribune.
The i-ontrovcrsy over the question how the
re-U-1 cavalry lender, John Morgan, dieil,
continue Ui rage in tho Kentucky news
papers. In a recent contribution to Tho
Louisville Courier-Journal, Capt. John J.
McAfeo, formerly of Morgan's commaiid,
tell.i how Morgan, "painfully wounded as he
wan, breathing and suffering; with the eriin
boii btreuui trii-kliug from his wounds," wiw
thrown across a horse and borno through tho
trMt3 of Greenville, "with hin blanc-ln.-d
face turned to the light, running his
linger through Ids hair, whilo hU
eye were lifted in their speechless agony to
heaven." Cat. McAfee does not assert that
ho witnessl thi scene, for he made hbi first
a:urance the next foreno.u, bearing a ting
of trure to obtain Morgan's remains, which
were delivered to him. All other accounts
agree that Morgan was shot dead in his
'jirit. McAfee falls into another error, how
ever, in whic h he has tho company of nil who
liavo written on the Coufodernte .side. Ho
tells the !l story that it was youns Mrs.
u illiums wiio 'lietravetl ' Mortran. In a
quiet street of AVasliington and in a very
UKKl t-t hoaso lives Mrs. Sarah Ii Thompson,
formerly of Greenville. Tenn. Ton Tribuno
correspondent this evening Mrs. Thomison
toM tho following story:
"I um tho woman who sent to tho Union
forces underCJeu. Gilleiutho intelligence that
Morgan and his command were in Greenville,
I was a widow then, niy husluiuil, who was
a Union soldier, haviug been imirdered by
Morgan's men sometime before, while he was
a prisoner in their hands. I was living then
at Main and llailroad streets, in Greenville.
One afternoon I was busy linking light bread
and making tomato butter, when John Mor
gau and his men rodo into town. He dis
mounted at my door, camo to the tiorch, sat
down and mado himself at home. He tilted
buck his t-huir and sat there an hour or more,
smokiujr his niiie and talking to me in his
MAKING SPORT OF A WOMAN.
''He knew I was a Union woman and he
tantalized me by telling me what great things
he ttas going to do and advising me to hunt
up a husband on the rebel side. Among
other thins he said be was goinj; to take
Knoxville and hold it. I told him he would
strike a snag before he ever got to Knoxville.
After a while he went over to Mrs. Williams'
house, which stood on a cross street, her yard,
in which were many grape vines, adjoining
mine. As soon as he had gone I walked over
to a little frame house, which was occupied
by some colored people and which overlooked
the premises of Mrs. Williams. A colored
woman lived there who had done some work
for me. I said to her: 'Milly, if you will
watch Morgan until I come bock I will give
you this,' and I handed her a five-dollar note.
She promised, and I weut back home and
got my bonnet and started out Main street.
I had not gone far before I met a man whom
I had known from childhood, and I asked
him to pass me through the pickets so I could
go and tind my cow. He went to the picket
post with tuc and ordered the guard to pass
me out and back, and then he pointed to some
cattle on a hill and asked if mine was not
among them. I told hirn my cow was a red
mully cow and walked on. When I got near
the top of the hill I threw a stick at the cow,
and she started down the other side
and I followed. As soon as I got out
of sight of the guard, I went into Davis
cornfield and through it to his house. I told
Mrs. Davis I wanted a horse, and she let mo
have one. 1 rode off through the fields in the
direction of Bull's gap, where the Union
forces lay. After riding some miles I found
a boy, Wilcox by name, and sent him on
with the news to Gen. Gillem. I was told
afterward that he would not believe the boy,
but some of his officers declared that they
were going after Morgan, anyhow; so the
general concluded to try it. I came back to
Greenville with our troops. The advance
dashed into town and searched Mrs. Williams's
house withoub finding Morgan. When we
came up they were mad, and declared tliat
they had been fooled again; but as soon as
Milly saw me she cried out that Morgan was
in the yard, hiding among the vines. I told
the men that if they would tear down the
fence and charge I would insure them Mor
KILLED WHILE FIKIXG HIS PISTOL.
"Just then he was discovered. Ho had a
revolver and fired on our men, and they fired
on him. Then he was killed and his body
taken by a man on horseback aud carried off.
By that time Morgan's men were throwing
cannon balls down at us from the artillery
they had on the college green. Our men re
treated out of the town, and I went back to
my own house. The relels came down there
and made mo a prisoner in my own house and
set two men to guard me. They told me
they would hang me the next day from the
same limb from which Fry, one of our men,
had leen hanged. They did not have much
time to threaten me, however, for our men
charged back into tho town and held it. One
of my guards was shot through the feet and
both were captured.
IDENTIFYING MORGAN'S BODY.
"After awhile an ambulance came along
with Morgan's body. Gen. Gillem stopped
the ambulance, rode up to my door and asked
me if I knew MorgaiL I told him that I did;
that my husband and I had played cards
with him at Glasgow, Ky., five years before
and cuchral him. 'And now,' I added, 'I
have helped to euchre him again.' I identi
fied the body, and it was then taken to Mrs.
William's house and prepared for burial. 1
went with our troops to Bull's gap when they
returned that afternoon."
Mrs. Thompson is now employed in the
treasury department and has in her posses
sion letters from Andrew Johnson and oth
ers, testifying to the services which she
rendered to the Union cause during the war.
Xo Cause for Congratulation.
While northern critics are not justified in
representing that Kentuckians are the sworn
enemies of common schools, there is deficiency
enough to make them ashamed of themselves.
The school accommodations do not cover the
field; 23 per cent, of the population 10 years
of age and upward can not read, and 29 per
cent, of that population can not write. It is
true that Kentucky is surpassed in illiteracy
by Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana,
Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina,
South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Vir
ginia, but that fact is no cause for cougratu-
Carious Coincidence lu Creed. .

In the National museum in Tokio have been
placed some old paintings of the Virgin Mary
and the infant Christ, after the style of the
orthodox conception of the old masters who
painted for the Reman Catholic church.
Thesa were probably brought from Spain
Portugal by the Jesuit priests who penetrated
Jaoan. Thev are now used, however, to
glorify one of the gods of Japan, who was
not only miraculously conceived, but was
born in a manger, according to Japanese be
lief. It is related that he suffered all thejialus
and penalties meted out to the reprobate
wicked in the deepest dungeon in the prison
house of King Yemmas, in Iigoko, or the hell
of the Buddhists. The name of this self-sac-crificing
god is Yata-No-Iizo. How many
centuries he has been in torture is a matter
of conjecture only, as the period of his incar
ceration is not stated. It seems mat. in me
olden times visitors were aUowea toenusr

rOuTHFUL CIGARETTE SMOKEBS.
A nlMnre Acalaiit Whleh Hrokfrs
and Other Have rrotested In
New York Sun.
'We suffer more from the Intolerable nul
nance of c igarette smoking than any other
bminerfs inon," said a Broad street broker
yesterday, "because there are so many boys
and young men, measengem. runners, aud
clerk, constantly eddying in and out of tho
office. Few people know how general the
liabit of smoking cheap paper cigarettes has
locome, and fewer still know how disagree
able and obnoxious it is to men who sit in
their ofllcus and receive the smoke in their
faces all day loug.n
Scattered about tho walls on all sidrs of tho
oflii-M were igiw: "No cigarette smoking
herel" "Leave your cigaretUss with tho
janitorf "Put out that cigarette!" "No
smoking of cigarettes!" Some of the signs
were new aud bright, while others were dim
and duty. In spite of them every third or
fourth boy of tho stream that '-constantly
jessed in through the swinging doors puffed
a acr cigarette.
"They are used to the signs now," said tho
broker, with a surly frowa toward the care
less offenders, "arid don't pay any atu-ntion
to them. Nearly all the olliees in this district
have made uu effort to stop tho vice. Both
my iMirtiKT and myself smoke cigars you
) I'm smoking now but we can't stand the
rigarette niiLsanci?. If the loys smoked to
n ceo it would bo all right, but tho inft-rtiiil
Mixture of aweil, burned straw, old ni3
and gatta percha, with which common cigar
ettes are filled, makes thu smoke disagri'e:i!!o
to thu last degree."
-Do you think tho liabit is still spread
"It increases every day. Wo logan a ciu-
sad'! against it live years ago or more, and
we were joined by every broker's office of
importance in New York, but tho smokers
increase constantly, i ou sae, the cigarettes
are now sold as cheap & M cents a pack
age, there luing twenty in a package. This
price is within the means of every boy, and,
us it is the fas'iiiou to smoke, tho youngsters
all fall in line."
There are u number of business men who
make it a rule never to employ cigarette
smokers. The rules in the messenger service
stations ai-e also very severe.
"If you start a lioy out," said the manager
of a station near the Fifth Avenue hotel,
"with a message in one hand and twenty
cigarettes in the other, the message will never
get to its destination before at least half the
cigarettes are smoked. So wo make stringent
rules concerning smoking, and punish the
boys if they break them. I can pick out a
cigarette-smoking boy any time. The habit
makes them pallid, lazy and impudent."
Home ofk.d Bautllne." of '-lllood
and Thunder" Xovel Notoriety.
The wildwood home of Col. . Z. C. Jud
son, better known as "Ned Buntline," in the
Adirondacks is one of the attractions of that
famous region. The house, if it may be dig
nified by that name, is constructed of logs
in the most primitive style, and contains but
two rooms. It stands near Eagle Lake at tho
foot of Blue Mountain. As far back as 1S3G
"Ned Buntline" invaded the wilderness and
built his little log cabin in- the heart of the
woods. At that time he was a slave to in
temperance, aud recognized the fact that his
safety lay in flight from the busy haunts of
men. He succeeded in clearing a little farm,
and when the cabin attained the appearance
of a home he presented it with a mistress in
the form of a young and handsome wife.
The furniture was of the simplest description,
and the pair were dependent upon their labor
for the necessaries of life, but notwithstand
ing these drawbacks they lived happily, and
"Ned Buntline" produced volume after vol
ume of thrilling backwoods stories.
The war of the rebellion called tho author
from his wildwood haunt, and he did not re
turn until long and arduous service had ele
vated him to the rank of colonel. ' In the
meantime his wife and only child died, and
they were laid to rest near the cabin. Four
cedar trees mark their lonely graves. "Ned
Buntline" is now lecturing on temperance
down among the Catskill mountains, and the
Adirondack homo has passed into the hands
of strangers. It has many visitors each 5"ear,
who look upon the graves beneath the cedars
and try to imagine the sort of life the little
family led. The thought of tho bravo wife
who willingly abandoned homo aud friends
to help her husband in his battle against his
appetite is invariably a source of sadness.
A Diamond City.
B ofiton Saturday Evening Gazette.
Saratoga is a city of diamonds. Never be
fore have so many of these gems been dis
played here. In tho glare and glitter of dia
monds that bedeck the fingers, wrists and
ears of the wife and daughters of Crcesus,3'ou
at last stare about for the relief of a hand
that does not suggest the display in the win
dow of a jeweler's shop. Such a variation is
to be found now and then, and the effect is
really refreshing. The tapering white hand
of my raving beauty was unadorned of gems.
But such instances are few and far between,
and hands as a-rule are plethoric in dia
monds. Like the hotels.the fingers are crowded
until accommodations for more rings are lack
ing. They overflow even to the forefingers,
usually sacred to the one little treasure of a
yellow diamond pertaining to tho pensive
shop girl or tho bucolic belle. It is a circum
stance worthy of remark that the largest dia
monds are invariably worn in the ears of the
oldest dowagers. A pair of solitaires with
the superfices of a nickel 5-cent piece glitter
and blaze up and down the piazzas of tho
hotel in close proximity to the frizzy wig of
youthful hue, the delicately rouged cheeks
ami the pencilled eyebrows of the most ma
ture woman in the house. Beyond a certain
size a diamond loses all air of refinement, be
comes ineffably vulgar, and seems to impart
an air of vulgarity to its wearer. These
gems may be seen in their greatest profusion
during the morning concert, where they flash
with an almost aggressive splendor. Those
who profess to know insist that beads are
nodded and hands keep time to Lothian's
music simply to give life and effect to tho
A Hhort Love Story.
Mitchell (Minn.) Republican.
Dr. Wellman if ports the cutest and yweet
est little love story we have from real life.
As he was waiting at Parker, Dak., for the
train, a country lass came in with her fellow
in the farm wagon, locked in even other's
arms. The young man lived in Iowa and was
an the eve of starting home. The train was
ready, and on to the platform wen his carpet-bag.
Another embrace and the train
pulled out. The lover swuug on and the
lassie waved him kisses.
The train, going down grade, gained rapid
speed; the boy waved his handkerchief, but
his heart was in bis mouth. Off went the
old satchel; off followed the lover, with his
heels in the air. Over and over went he, and
at last lit in a mud-hole, rolled like a ball
against the soft clay bank, and finally got on

Conquered Indian Stolidity.
Denver Tribune. f
At Denver recently the proud natures of a
number of Ute Indians prevented them from
making any great expressions of surprise at
what they saw. They simply stood aud
looked about, only the looks of wonderment
in their eyes betrayizuj their thoughts. Oc
casionally they commenced, in the Ute lan
guage, upon something that especially at
tracted their attention. Only once were they
unable to suppress their true feelings. That
was when the horses at the centi-al fire station
were hitched and started in something les
than four seconds. They could not ropre-w
their delight at what they taw, aud foi i
time tito chatter, ail ia Ute, was tariilic.

In twenty years the sparrow in America
has increased so that it is now difficult to
find a section of the country from Boston to
San Francisco which has not its chirping,
saucy sparrow, fighting in the roadwoy or
making a meal from the droppings in the
street. They are not migratory, but remain
the year through wherever they may be,
whether in the gulf states or Canada. Every
where he is the samo, and everywhere he has
bitter enemies and most ardent friends. It
is claimed that he is and is not a fruit eater;
that he does and does not drive away native
birds; that he is and is not an insectivorous
bird, and each of those directly opposite con
clusions Is supported by any quantity of ob
servations. Sparrows by the hundred have
been dissected in all seasons, and their maws
found filled with grain or insects, as the op
erator was a sparrow-phobo or a sparrow
phile. Dr. T. M. Brewer, tho Boston naturalist,
has been the great sparrow advocate. Ills
death left the birds without any prominent
defender, while Dr. Elliot Cones, of t;.ie
Smithsonian institution, has been tho leader
of those who ore writing down the sparrow.
Many of tho states have outlawed the little
bird, and exposed him to slaughter by who
ever may care for the work.
The charges against the birds, bri .'fly stated,
are that they perform very inefficiently tha
work they were imported to do; they attack,
dispossess, drive away and sometimes actu
ally kill various nativo birds v, l-.itrh are muh
more Insectivorous than tl:e:.'i:;o!vs, mil
which might do better service if equally en
couraged; they comuiib depr li-ns in the
kitchen garden, the orcha;- , r.r. I tho :rain
field; they are personally cl:i-xi and un
pleasant to many persons, nil thc-y have at
present no natural cuemle-J uinl no check
upon their limitless iuci-eas?.
C. V. Rile3', the entomo!ogi:-.i, g.nvd his tes
timony against the sparrow, an.l r.- .ently Dr.
Cones has declared that the rcpiv-.siou of the
bird is a matter of iiation:;l iinpo-.tance, for
they are crowding out into lis-.? ici- iin li?; Is
and threaten to have a imter!;il efi':vt upon
the crop reports. The lat:;rh vr of Audubon,
the naturalist, also wrote le-tiiM- CaAt tuey

Mr. Robertson" Journey in America.
Mr. Cephas F. Robertson recently came to
this country from England. He carried
eleven hat boxes and a valet and was full of
brandy and soda and enthusiasm. Three
days after he arrived in New York he met an
old friend in the usual way on the bowery.
The meeting cost Mr. Robertson fl,100. He
left the following day for Chicago. The
morning of his arrival in that porcine city be
met another old friend who obtained from
him a loon of $C40 on $1.95 worth of glass
diamonds and a certified check on a Cana
dian bank which failed two years ago. Mr.
Robertson then undertook to do St. Louis,
and it cost him $20 to have a lawyer explain
to a judge why one glass of pale sherry,
which he had taken with a cas
ual acquaintance, should have so
muddled bis brain and tangled
up his legs that he lost his watch and his
reputation for sobriety on the public street at
11 a. m. Mr. Robertson got into Louisville
just in time for the most exciting horse rac
of the season, and was fortunate enoagh tc
secure a ''pointer" from a too confiding
friend, which enabled him to lose $2,700 in
five minutes on what is called . in that da
praved region a "whipsaw." He then drifted
into Texas, arid got into a friendly argument
with a cowboy and into the surgical ward of
a hospital on the same day. Flying to New
Orleans, he went down with the "breakbone'"
fever, and then spent $2,900 trying to win
the capita! prize in the lottery. He will now
return to England, and will write a . boo!:
which will convey accurate impressions of
t.'ii i-nimrrv to the British public.
