"Money, sir; money!"
So pavairely were the word3 uttered
that I bounded upright, and stared at
the recumbent form before me. The
General smiled erimly upon his toes, Lut

drawn up in lino on the great maus

a military column of fours, on y the com
mandant was on the riht instead ot the I

tion in martial reminiscence.
"How money. General?"
"It was bought, sir," said the Gene
ra', bringing the section to a riar t-about
fi'.co, and scrutinizing the sole of hid foot.
"W ho bought what? "
"Bogy bought the Senator?hip."
"I heard there was tuch a rumor."
"It's true, it's true, and I know it."
and he shot his li! down till his ten toes
amo into position, division front, look-

march on Lsogy, and lay nim in ashes.
Do I understand that it is a fixed

"Ve, sir he paid cash for it."
"Couldn't your influence and popularity

I here were a lew moments ot snence,
during which the general put the two

drill. I thought those of the right foot
the most proficient, but the General
raised too leu ana ecra.cneu tne com
