Cuptnre auJ Recapture.
A veteran of the Thirty -sixth Illinois
volunteers furnishes tliis:
After we had flanked Johnston's army
from Dallas, it was, contrary to tho usual
custom, tho fortune of tho First brigade
Sheridan's old division to bo left be
hind the army a few days, as a puard for
an ambulance train. One day two of
our men oneof them Jack Tyrrell, com
missary of our brigade went to take a
bath beyond and in sight of our picket
line, in a small bayou, which temerity
was observed by some of Ferguson's cav
alry hovering in the vicinity, who de
tached two men armed with sabers and
carbines to bring them in. Doing with
out arms they were surprised, and start
ed off in deshabille, in the very face of
the pickets, who dared not fire for
fear. of injuring the prisoners. Each
relel Rtarted in a dilferent direc
tion with his charge. After going a
short distance Tyrrell dodged to one side,
exposing his captor to our pickets, who
gave him a volley, but missed, ou which
the Johnny, out of spite, returned the
shot: when Tyrrell, taking advantage of
his empty carbine, sprang and caught
him by his abundant whiskers and
dragged him from hi3 horse. Here a
short struggle ensued, in which the Con
federate had to give way to northern
muscle, although they were both good
types of their countries, and Johnny,
minus his gun and saler, was marched
to the picket lines by his escort, who
guided him by walking ln-hind him with
one hand in each side of his whiskers. It
is useless to say that he was received by
the picket s with considerable merriment.
Theother Confederate, on seeing his com
rade's fate, and hearing the whir of a
few random shots, fled, and left his
charge to come back at his wilL
Do Liquors Produce Fat?
Liquids make fat. There is no doubt
of this in my mind, though I am fully
cognizant of the fact that a good runny
people will deny it. Thecharacter of the
liquids has a good deal to do with it, but
the practice of drinking invariably leads
to unwieldy bulk. In Spain, where men
drink little, a fat man is unknown. In
Paris, where men contmt themselves
with sipping thimblcsful of absinthe or
small cups of black coffee, the French are
thin to a remarkable degree. Tho wom
en, on tho other hand, drink great quan
tities of champagne, Durgundy and lat
terly beer, and they are as a result prone
to stoutness. In England men drink ale
and beer, and they are a thick necked,
pudgy and heavy race as a rule. I had
observed all this many times, and when
I went to Germany, where I knew the
consumption of beer was very great, 1
had prepared to find fat men in abund
ance. I was not disappointed. There
would seem to bo absolutely no end of
big, corpuient and unwieldy men in Ger
many. Wliile in the army they are sum
and pplendid looking warriors, but two
months after they leavo tho ranks they
become heavy, puffy and beefy to the
last degree. This is even so in the ranks
amomjthe other soldiers, and the cav-

In Ilayti tho people are divided into
three classes tho blacks, the colored and
the whites. Tho blacks arc, of course,
tho most numerous, and they are also
the most ignorant. Tho colored are those
who have mixed blood in them and form
the intelligent portion of the inhabitants.
They are largely in the minority, but
they are the only class competent I j con
duct tho government. The whiles are
those white men who go down thero as
merchants. Many of these marry the
colored girls, and then, of course, Le-
I come more thoroughly identified with
tho best interests of the government. The
people generally, particularly the colored
portion, have a curious mixture c.f traits.
The negroe3 as a race are impressionable
and excitable. They have these quali
ties, and in addition the mercurial tem
perament of the French, for nearly all
are sent to Paris to complete their educa
tion. This combination makes i hem dif
ficult to govern, for there is :i natural
jealousy between the blacks an-.l the col
ored, and so affairs are generally more
or less unsettled. Washington Star.
Don't Mention the Kriers.
It is not only a wise and happ7 thing
to make the best of life, and always look
on the bright 6ide, for one's own ske,
but it is a blessing to others. Fancy a
man forever telling his family how much
they cost him! A little 6ermon on this
subject was unconsciously preached by a
child one day last fall:
A man met a little fellow or the road
carrying a basket of blackberries, and
saidto liim: "Sammy, where did you get
such nice berries?"
"Over there, sir, in the briers."
"Won't your mother be glad to see you
come home with a basketful of such
nice, ripe fruit?"
"Yes, sir," said Sammy, "she always
seems mighty glad when I hold up the
berries, and I don't tell her anything
about the briers in my feet."
The man rode on, resolving that hence
forth he would hold up the berries and
say nothing about the briers. Atlanta
The photographic camera promises to
bo of even greater service in medicine
than was imagined. It seems to have
literally a superhuman faculty of diag
nosis. Some time ago a photographer
liad as a subject a child apparently in
Kool health, with a clear skin tnd good
complexion. When the negative was
examined, however, the picture showed
the face to be covered with blotches.
Within a week the child was covered
villi the eruption of measles. Another
i ase is recorded when a child's portrait
showed spots a fortnight beforo it was
luMup with smallpox and b.-fera any
trace of tho disease had appeared.' It
would seem that tho sensitive p'i-.tf of the
camera ierccived and photographed the
eruption before it was visible to tli-- naked
eye. The Hospital.
