Judge Palllgant can tell a war story
better than any other living man. Here
is a pathetic one In hie own words:
"While at home recruiting his com
mand In men and horses, an old farmer
friend came to gallant Col. 'Bill' De
loney and jald: 'Bill, my boy here
aa got the war fever. Ills mother and
I have tried to get It out of him, but It'a
do use. He swears he'll run away If I
don't let blm go, so I've mouuted him
on tbe best racing colt I had. and here
be Is. Take him with you, but I've this
much to say: If he ever shows the
domlnleker, kill him right then and
there; dou't let hioi come home.' The
old farmer raised game chickens and
foiiRlit them, too. He had a contempt
for domlnleker roosters, becaune he
didn't think they would fight, and that
wus his blunt way of describing a cow
ard. Deloney turned and saw a falr
halred country lad of 1", standing per
fectly erect, his lips compressed, but
a vivid fire flashing from his steel-blue
eyes. The boy never said a word, but
parted tenderly from the old man and
went to Virginia to Join the cavalry.
"Deloney watched with pride the
rapid improvement of the young re
cruit, but had forgotten the Incident
until the great cavalry fight at Brandy
Station. When the squadrons were
charging and counter-charging with
the intrepid clasi and dash of the light
brigade. Tierce Young suddenly order
ed him to attack a Federal brigade
that was forming on tbe flank.
"Get right among them, Bill, and
break them up with cold steel,' was the
order; 'don't give them time to form.'
"The words were hardly spoken
when bis command, Deloney far In ad
vance, was sweeping aown upon me
foe, but before he was within a hun
dred feet of the enemy something went

On the Back of a Confederate.
The following very remarkable story
of the civil war is told by a veteran:
At the battle of Gettysburg a Union
officer fell between tbe lines. Bullets
had broken one leg and one arm, and
he could not move out of he rane of
the bullets coming from both direc
tions. He thought he might venture to turn
over, but as be did so a bullet struck
In the other arm, and now be was help
As he lay with bit face turned to
ward the Confederate lines he saw an
officer In gray atand up and coolly sur
vey the field. He ahouted to thla officer
that be waa helpless and dying of
thirst, and asked him to come to blm.
The man In gray pointed to the Union
llr.ee, firing at everything In eight, and
ahook bis head. The wounded man In
sisted and made tbe strong appeal of
the suffering. Tbe Confederate officer
left bis own line, crept like a snake to
where the Union officer lay gnve him
water from his canteen, and was turn
ing to creep back when the wounded
ollleer made the demand that he be
taken off the field.
Tbe Confederate, looking on this as
the unreasonableneHB of delirium, tried
to soothe the Unionist. Tbe Intter put
aside the petting with the peremptory
statement that If bia friend the enemy
would lie flat, face down, aud permit
him to roll or climb on his back the
thine was done. The Confederate
agreed, with a twinkle In his eye, to try
tbe experiment. With Infinite trouble
be got the wounded man on hla back
and started to creep, anatl fashion, back
to bit lines.
Tbe Union officer was struck again,
and loot consciousness. He was re
vived witb a daab of cold water In bit
face, and opened hit eyet In tbe belief
that at but he waa no longer between
the lines. HI Confederate friend was
tying close to the ground witb canteen
la band and bulteu were whittling
from both directions. Tbe man In gray
explained that the man In blue had
tatatad; that the Una man bad rolled
eC tbe gray ataa's back; that the gray
tec Met water tat had
Just returned, ana If the blue man
thought best was ready to reaume
easiness In the old way.
The Confederate succeeded In crawl
lug Into the lines of his own regiment
with the wounded and almoat uneon
tcloua Union officer on his back. The
latter was too far gone to express hit
thanks or to realuw what was going on
about him. ne was fouud, when the
Confederates retreated, more dead than
alive. After some weeks In the hospital
he begpn to gain strength, and the
memory of that terrible experience be
tween the lines and the Incidents of hla
reacue came back to him. Nurses and
comrades smiled when they heard the
etory, charging It to delirium. But to
the officer himself the face of his res
cuer, the sound of his voice, the shape
of his head, as he crept painfully over
the hullet-Bwept ground, all were
burned Into memory.
When fully recovered he tried to
open up communication with his res
cuer, but it was not until twenty years
later that be was able to find and thank
A Kcbel Prison Fragment.
Col. Hawkins raised a regiment In
and around Lewiaburg, Tenn., near
where I was raised, aud went Into the
rebel army. He and a goodly number
of his regiment were taken prisoner
and carried North. One of the boys
tried to keep up a eorresuondence with
his lady-love in the Kouth, and while
In prison was taken sick and Informed
thnt he could not live. He longed to
live for the letter due him from this
lady, but the It tier came one day too
late the day after he had died. Col.
Hawkins had Instructions to answer
all letters. . When he read the lady's
letter, breaking her engagement with
this soldier boy, he wrote this in an
swer: Your letter, lady, came too late,
For heaven had claimed its own:
Ah, sudden change from prison bar
Unto the greut white throne!
And yet I think he would have stayed
To live for his dindain,
Could he have read the careless word
Which you have sent in vain.
So full of patience did he wait,
Through many a weary hour,
That o'er his dimple soldier-faith
Not even death hnd pow'r;
And you did others whisper low
Their homage in your ear.
As though amongst their shallow throng
His spirit had a peer?
I would that rou were by me now,
To draw the sheet aside
And see how pure the look he wore
The moment when he died.
The sorrow that you gave to him
Had left its weary trace,
As 'twere the shadow ot the Cross
Upon his pallid face.
Mid. "eoald change for
The winter's cold tb spring;
Ah, trust no fickle maiden's love.
Thou art a bitter thing!
For when these valleys, bright in May,
Once more with blossoms wave.
The northern violets shall blow
Above his humble grave.
Tonr dole of scanty words had been
But one more pang to bear,
For him who kissed unto the last
Your tress of golden hair; ,
I did not put it where he taid.
For, when the angels come,
I wonld not have them find the sign
Of falsehood in the tomb.
I've read your letter, and I know
The wiles that you had wrought
To win that noble heart of hie,
And gained it cruel thought!
What lavish wealth men sometimes give
For what Is worthless all;
What manly bosoms beat for truth
In folly's falsest thrall!
Y'ou shall not pity him, for now
His sorrow has au end;
Yet would that you could stand with me
Beside my fallen friend;
And I forgive you for his sake.
And he if it be given
Hay e'en be pleading grace for you
Before the court of heaven.
To-night the cold winds whistle by
As I my vigil keep
Wlthiu the prison dead-house, where
Few mourners come to weep.
A rude plank coffin holds his form;
Yet death exalts hia face,
And I would rather nee him thus
Than clasped in your embrace.
To-night your home may shine with lights
And ring with merry song,
And you be smiling, as your soul
Hnd done no deadly wrong;
Your hand so fair that none would think
It penned these words of pain;
Your skin so white would God, your
Were half as free from stain I
I'd rather be ray comrade dead
Thau you in life supreme;
For yours the sinner's wnking dread,
Aud his the martyr's dream,
Whom nerve we, in this life, we serve
In that which is to come;
He chose his way; you, yours; let Qod
Pronounce the fitting doom. j'

tbls lady one of the state-rooms In his
cabin; but it was not long before she

had she stayed much longer, would
have been captain. She was intensely

nor did she hesitate to tell us to. We

scamper; but tbe poor officer of the
deck wat compelled to atand and take

' After the birth of my little girl,
three years ago, my health was very
poor. I had levcorrhoea badly, and a
terrible bearing-down pain which
gradually grew worse, until I could do
no work. Also had headache nearly
all the time, and dizzy feelings. Men
struations were rery profuse, appear

" I took medicine from a good doctor,
but it seemed to do no good. I was
becoming alarmed over my condition,
when I read your advertisement In a
paper. I sent at once for a bottle of
