Almost flnihhed he dropped his pencil ;
and said to Col. Kealf, who hharcd the
tent with him: "I will be killed in
battle to morrow." He then read the
written portion and Col. Rcalf pre
vailed upon him toiinish the poem. This
the General did wM.h perfect calm: He
was killed in battle the day following:
just aa he bad predicted. There was
no. place in war for a man with such a

There will also be a bureau of infor

be informed where they eqn procure
places to stop at reasonable rates while
Attending the fair if they do not wish
to go into camp. Thousands of the
veterans with tlulr families and friends
will attend this print encampment and
the Columbian exposition. They de
sire to meet and greet their comrades
once tnoro before the final muster-out,
And they have requested that theso ar
rangements be made for their comfort
And information during the world's
fair in 1893, beginning May 1 and con
tinuing through the fair. The general
management of the encampment is in
the hands of well-known comrades, and
is endorsed and mrp irted by the lead'
ing men of the nation. It meets with
the hearty approbation of the fair
management, rind will undoubtedly be
carried through successfully.
Objections to the Date.
The Philadelphia Tress reports that
the date chosen for the national en'
cnmprr.cnt, Sept. 20, conflicts with the
time for the grand union of the Army
of the Cumberland atChk'lcamauga. If
both are held at the same time it is
quite certain that many thousands of
Western veterans and families who
otherwise would go to Washington,
prefer to attend the other gathering
And witness the ceremonies that will
take place in connection with the dedi
CAting of the monument upon the great
national park series of bat Jcficlds in
Tennessee and Georgia.
There are many hundreds of old sol
diers who served in Ohio, 1'cnnsylvania,
Kew York and New England regiments
tinder Generals Hooker, Slocum, Geary,
Tyndale and Kilpatrick in the Eleventh,
Twelfth and Twentieth and Calvary
corps, who would enjoy as much pleas
ure in revisiting Lookout mountain,
Missionary ridge, Ringgold and Chick
Amauga, as they would in attending
the reunion at Washington.

During a shooting match in the pres

latter noticed to his astonishment, that
the heads of sparrows were th'e favor
ite butt of the marksmen, who but sel
dom missed their aim. Whereupon he
declared that it was far more difficult
to hit an egg. Sir Peter laughed at the
supposition, but the Sirdar stood his
ground and the matter was put to the
test. An egg was suspended on a wall
Aud the soldiers fired at it, but, strange
to say, not one of them hit the egg.
The Governor and his suite kept their
maintenances and excused the non-success
of the firing party on the ground
of the difficulty of the thing. At last
A ball hit the thread to which the egg
Was fastened and it fell to the ground
without breaking. Kow the mystery
wa solved; the cunning Afghan had
used a blows egg., and the feather

time by the current of air in front of
the ball and thus escaped being hit '

as tha "f ree money," and when parties
of students start for a day at Lake

places along tho Hudson it is the "free
