BY KIIVVAKD S. CKRAMF.lt. 'Twas a:i evening fine in Kieliiiiond, AVhen the war nas sometime o'er. Where we gathered to be mustered Out f arms which Ion.; we bore, That the surgeant told this story To some men of Sixty-three. AA'ho were waiting, with tin; others. To be paid off and be free : " 'Twas I think within the summer. Or the fall of Sixty-two. The general learned a rebel mail O'er the southern line was due ; And that more had gone before it Telling of our works add force All our weak points of defenses Very kind to them, of course. "IJut the General thought he'd stop it. So he sent for ine himself. And a number of tlie Itiiles Two I know were Sclmepp and Self ; And he told us o'er the river AVe should go about twilight Twas tlie Xnsmond, not far up- And watch over thera all niht. "Well, we watched there alertly. Till I heard a mufilod oar. Anil 1 had to wake up John, there. For he had a loud-toned snore, And I feared that they might bear it Ere they brought the boat to land But we captured them uite bandy, A most curious mixed-up band. "AVe got uniforms and gewgaws Intended, we than found. For some officers in their army And we emptied on the ground All their bass aud all their parcels. Though no letters could we see, But a female of their number Stepped aside to speak to n;e. "She was very full of favor, Had n pair of coal black eyes ; And a way of taking long breaths That somehow did me surprise ; 'Have you not a married man, idr?' Ah, lier voice was tremulous here If so I'd like bespeak him, sir. For I am not well. I fear.' " 'Mong our small but gallant party What young men are we to-day Just one only had been married, And that one was Harry May. She told liim with rare modesty, That well with her sex uceerds. That she was the way that ladies be That only love their lords. That night vre brought her. with the rest. To our camp in peace to stay ; AVhere all were given a chance to sleep. But uo chance to steal away. The next day she was delivered Of a child? Don't spoil the tale By a woman, in a pillow. There was found the Uebel Mail ! This happened in Virginia during the AV.ir in 'GO. Cfihy was the sergeant and l.abaugh was John, of Co. Ii, 1st Mounted llille.s, N. Y.

CABLE AI5IT THE FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLAK P.EWAP.D. The $50,000 reward offered yester day by the State of Missouri, 'or the capture of the bandits that have for the past ten years made tlie south western portion of that State a region of terror, has inspired tlie waning confidence of the nian-hunter3 of this city, and it is rumored to-day that a strong and secret organization is about to be effected and will shortly leave for t he Kansas border. On being questioned as to the truth of the rumor, William Rinkerton said: "I think there is a party of Sheriffs or detectives to leave from here, but the State of Missouri can cet no good men to work for rewards. They will never catch the James boys, or A.1STT I ED any other part of the pang, until they engage competent men and pay them a salary and expenses." "Have you any men at present en gaged in the case?" "No. we don't have anything to do with it. We don't work for reward. Men are not going to jeopardise their lives and spen their time and money, working for a reward Avithout any as surance of success." R. R. Cable, Vice-President and Gen eral Manager of the Rock Island road, was interrogated in regard to Avhat measures that corporation intended to take toward capturing the brigands. He said: "The company tvill leave nothing undone to effect their cap ture. Arrangements are being per fected for a thorough hunt, and the company has entered heartily into the project." . "Have you engaged any men at pres ent besides offering a share of the big reward?" "Not that I know of. I have not heard from the Kansas City Depart ment, yet." The Alton and Iron Mountain folks are also up in arms having several old scores to settle with the bandits, and from the appearance of things it seems that a hot hunt is about to be inaugurated. ir ii at it has is:i:.v. FROM BOSTON TO CHICAGO $5. Yesterday's Cut in Passenger Rates Prospects of Free Trip West. "What is tlie rate to Chicago to day ?" Passenger Agent Carpenter of the Pennsylvania Railroad was asked late yesterday afternoon. "It openod at Si) with us, and about mid-day dropped to $3.00. I have a scout out now, and if he reports any cutting below that rate we shall meet it. The great cut to-day has been made between Boston and Chicago. The Grand Trunk of Canada has re duced its rate to $5, and the Boston and Albany has followed it in the re d uction." "Will that break the New York rate to So ?" "It may ; but not necessarily. The tickets are rebate tickets the buyer paying $13, and having $10 refunded to "him at Chicago, if we meet the rate over our route from Boston ' Chicago via New York, we will eil only ironclad rebate tickets, making the purchaser sign here and again at Chicago before he can get the rebate." The other roads had also reduced their rates to Chicago to SS.-jO. "We opened this morning at .lO," said the New York Central agent, "but after wards dropped to $9, and then to $8.30. The rata to Cincinnati is now $8, and to St. Loui $13.73. Nothing definite seemed to be known at the regular of fices about the cut in the northern routes from Boston, but it agreed that thero was no telling vet when bottom will be reached or how the war would be ended. The ticket brokers, as usual, under sold the regular omVes yesterday. ; Lansing, at 3H7 Broadway, said: " The ; i ennsvi vania leti ine w .ty i:i cutting to-day. and w keep about 30 cents be low its rates. We can undersell the Pennsylvania all the lime, and can d it on their own tickets, too. There will be another cut to-morrow, but I don't see how the roads here can meet the Boston $5 rate. The fare by boat from Boston here is $4, and by rail So and the roads have to pay these rates to their connections. If the pennsyl-' A'ania re luces its tickets from Boston to Chicago to $5. it will simply be car lying pass-itigers trom New York to Chicago free." Sun. Coverlets from Milk-Weed Down. Last summer, being iu the country in the season when the pods became ripe, 1 put. into execution a project that I had formed some time before but had not been able to bring to a conclusion This was to collect the silk to make a bed coverlet, for the winter, to replace eider down. As my experiment proved successful. I will describe my process for the benefit of the readers of the American Agricul turalist. It is as follows: Near the end of August, or the be ginning of September, when the pods are nearly ripe and some of the silk is seen floating in the fipld., collect a good batch of the pods, and spread them in the shade for a day or two. This hits the effect of drying up the sap, so that shelling th pods no milkv juice escapes to stain the hand.s and clothes. As soon as tlie green shells aro removed, the seeds should be scraped off with a blunt knife. This is another important point, for if the inside of the pod is allowed to dry it is almost impossible to separate the seedswithout having the silk flying all over the room, while the green seeds are scraped off very easily and rap idly. This being done, the bundles of silk for such is their appearance are spread on shelves, or in any conven ient place, and left to become almost dry. Finally the cores are removed from the center, and the silk is put into bed ticking of the proper shape, GREAT STORE. Nebraska. and sewed uo. On drying completely, S the silk swells considerably, and thus makes an extremely warm and light coverlet. When freshly made, it com pares favorably with real eider do mi. But, remember it must always be used over the body, not under it. Its prin cipal advantage is its remarkable light ness.

First rub the spots with any soi l of grease, until the black sul -stance is dissolved, then wash yotti hands with soap and water. Ameri can Agriculturalist. Put up Ice. Why the hard working farmer should be deprived of one of the most common necessities (for ice hits ceased to be counted among the luxuries) is more than we can understand. The opinion of the leading physicians of the country is that ice is one of the very best medicines for all diseases common in hot Aveather. They even say that since the general use of ice, fevers have become almost unknown. Then why go without it. There is no reason Avhy every farmer should not put up ice enough to last through the hot season. A few years since, the writer piled it lot of ice against the north end of the barn and covered it over with straw, and we believe now that the only reason why it did not last all summer was because we used it before it had melted think it lasted until some time in July'. A very good ice house can be by cutting into the side of a built bank, leaving one side a little lower so as to drain good ; lay a thick bed of straw in the oottota and around tlie slues, make it shed of poles packing plenty of straw between the ice and poles; then cover with plenty of straw and throw enough dirt on top and against the sides to hold the straw in its place, ice put up in this way will keep all summer. A building 12 foot square will hold enough to last an ordinary family a whole season, aud will be worth hundreds of dollars. Nebraska Fanner. A standing antidote for poison by dew, poison oak, ivy etc., is to take a handful of quicklime, dissolve in Witter, let it stand half an hour, then paint the poisoned parts with it. Three or four applications will never fail to cure the most aggravated cases. Corn silk is said to be an efficient and powerful remedy for dropsy, bladder and kidney troubles. The Medical News gives an account of the medical properties of corn silk, and the cures that have been effected by its use. To use it take two double handfulsof fresh corn silk and boil it: two gallons of water until but one gallon remains. Ad 1 sugar to make a syrup. Drink it ttmiliier of this daily, a:.d it will relieve dropsy by increas ing the flow of the in ine enormously. Other diseases of the bladder and kid neys are benefited by the remedy, which is prompt, efficient and grateful to the stomach. The treatment can be continued for months without dan ger or inconvenience. To Ke?p Vtry Shade 1 Places Grcea. G'-i ni r.v :i Tol.-xTHph.

A Durango correspondent describes n terrible scorpion, know n as the alacran, which infeits that region. Its sting is mortal in eA'cry ease, and no remedy has 0Arcr been found to counteract its deadly poison. The spasms arc so vio lent that it takes three or four strong men to hold a patient stung by it. Hap pily tho stifle ring is short, for after two or three hours it is all over. Patients emit from their mouth a greenish-yel low scum, winch turns into a Mack, spongy matter in a short while. Every Aear thirty or more deaths are record ed as the work of the alacran. The gov ernment pays a premium for their scalps, and lie boys hunt them and de rlA'e quite a revenue from that source, but the pest does not seem to diminish any. They are said to occupy but a small belt of land running east ami west, taking in Durango and Mazallan. AVft Antonio ('Ax) Ilcruhl. - a A Definition of a fJentlenian. "What do you call a gentleman?" asked the duke. "Will you give ine a delinition of the word?"' "That is not so easy, my lord; indeed, I am not sure that it is possible to define the word satisfactorily," replied Lady Do Vete, lixing her eyes on the expressionless face of the interlocutor. "By resorting to metaphors, however, I may perhaps be able to outline what we all feel, but are unable to fully describe. A gentle man is one iu whom the vigorous and the delicate ate happily united. The soft, the refined that which comes from seeking the society of women of culture, lies in the 'gentle;' the strong, tho linn, the stern that tvhieh conies from battling with men, lies in the 'man;' 'gentle' implies the possession of all the social, '111:111" of all tho civil, virtues; 'man is' the iiery wine, 'gentle' the tasteful goblet; 'man' is the s-harp, correct drawing, 'gentle,' the warm, soft coloring; 'gentle1 might be the Syb arite who is disturbed by the falling of a rose-leaf, 'man' is the Brutus, who as judge knows not even his own child.

In a "study of an old Southern bor ouirh" in the Atlantic we find the fol lowing: "In the newer towns and the larger cities the negroes have by this time forgotten their old masters and old homes, or do not care for them. But in an old borough there are always some who have passed their whole lives there. Their old masters they alw ays address as 'old maser,' and his sons as 'Mars' James,' or 'Mars' Thomas,' or whatever their christian namo may be. At their old home they feel that they enjoy no slight privilege, ami even that t iey have a sort of right to see that everything about the household goes on well. These negroes have a sort of contempt for those who have no such oid attachment. It is a common phrase among them, in speaking of a negro who did not belong to an aristocratic family: "Dat nigger ain't no manners, neber had no raisin' -poor folks' nig ger.' Sometimes these old negro men preserve the lordly manners of their masters. Their negro dialect does not set-in to detract from their gentility, and they are noticeable as men of par ticularly line manners. A Virginia lady in Louisville had employed a genteel old negro man to nurse her son, w ho was suii'ering with a broken limb. She noticed at once the dignified bearing of the negro; and one day she asked him, 'Uncle Ned, where wore you reared?1 " 'In old Virgin uy, madam with a polite bow.

Yesterday afternoon a woman about 50 years of age, who was waiting At ith her husband at the Detroit, Grand Ila- ven & Milwaukee depot for a train, --j Atent out to view tho river and fell in. Just how she did it she could not after wards explain, but the men under the freight sheds hoard an awful yell and a "krrsplash," and ran lo the edge of the wharf to lind the old lady kicking up sea enough to swamp a skiff. She was duly hauled out and given a seat on a barrel until she should recover her nerve and wring out her clothes. As she sat there a crowd gathered, and one man said: "It's a clear cac of attempted .sui cide. Her lover probably went back on her, and she doe.-, not care to live any longer." "And how sail it m to.-t e an old wo rn 111 driven to such desperate straights," sighed another. "Siio must have set her cap for a third husband and been disappointed." "Well, these women are curious crea tures," added a third. "This one serins to be fully 80 years old. ami yet she has been sighing around the depot here for two hours like a girl of l'i.' The. old lady went on wit li her wring ing without even looking up, and a fourth man remarked: "Well, perhaps this will learn her a lesson and be a solemn warning for her to change her line of conduct. She looks like a hard old case, but there's a chance for even the wickedest to strike out into new paths." Her hair had fallen down. She gave it a twist into a hard knot, and arose and shook herself, and then sat down and said: "Now, then, do you suppose I'm gf i'ig to take oil' 1113 sl ckir.irs and wring 'cm before such a parcel 01 great big fools as von are?

Probably you have he ird of Whist ler's extravaganza in houses. lie was engaged to decorate a noble mansion in Belgravia; the price was no ohj.u-l to the owner and for that matter neither was it to Whistler. One day a friend asked me to go over and see one of the rooms that was nearly complete. I, and I hastened to accept the invitation. This is what tve saw on entering: A very slim, spare figure extended on a mat tress in the middle of the floor; be-i In him, on an enormous palette, paints, a half-dozen long bamboo fish-poles set ting on a liim with their butts elo-e at hand, and a very large pair of binocular glasses. Whistler, dressed wholly in black velvet, with knickcrbockcr pata loons stopping just below the knee, black silk stockings, ami low pointed shoes with silk ties more than six inches wide and diamond buckles, was flat on his back, fishing-rod iu hand and an enormous eyeglass in one eye, diligently nutting some finishiiig touelies on tho ceiling, his brush being 011 the other end of the fish-pole. Oc casionally he would pick up his double glasses like soino astronomer peering at tho moon, and, having gained a nearer and better view of the cilW t, ho would again begin to agitate the paint brush at the other end of the long pole. "Now, wouldn't I bo a fool,' said he, 'to risk myself on a scaffolding, and nearly twist my head tiff my shoulders trying to look upward, when I can overcome the difficulty and annihilate space so easily thus?"' ami he gave a wave of his iish-pole. And such a room! One mass of gorgeous purple and blue, ornamented solely with an enormous number of the eyes of a peacock's feathers. It was a room to make a man a lunatic in a week. It was as if all the peacocks iu Christendom had settled down upon one, and were about to smother one iu tail-feathers. And this Avas the cele brated peacock room' about w hich all London went wild not long afterwards. Loudon Letter. n "Women s Tears. He must be a brute indee d w ho can bring tears to a woman's eyes. His heart must be of stone to enjoy tho spec tacle of a woman bathed in a flood of Avihl emotion, with tiio convulsive sobs shaking her little form, while grief, Iiko a tornado, tosses her about like a paper collar box on the bosom of tho boiling torrent. Few men have the hardihood to look a grief-stricken woman in tlie face tvhilo her nose swells up, angry and iritaled, in the distance. Few men are so lost to all tlie better feelings of our nature as to do an act which will thaw out the frizzes and flood the features of the woman he loves. This is one reason why man' men are kind to their wives, who would other wise be cruel ami heartless. They do not like to sec the wife of their bosom looking as though she had ciysipelas ill her nose. It isn't the grief of wives that is kill ing oil" our husbands. It is the terrible shock to their n--tin tic ta.ste. No hus band can bear to view the howling waste after the washout has subsided and the bridge is repaired. Then, fellow men, on our journey to the tomb, let us resolve that we will not do or say any thing that will bring the hectic flush to the nose of her to whom we have A'owed life-long fidelity. Let us, as far as possible, slave oil' the storm, and if tears must be shed let us shed thcni ourselves. Most of us are so ding busted homely that it don't make any difference whether we color our nose cherry red or sago green. I hen again if we weep prettv pro miscuously and keep our no.se middling red, perhaps we can fool the tcmper- nnc.i people and thus regain some of the tespe:t that wc have lost.

Heli's Half Aer- Mis,5on, at Kansas Tity. takes its title fiom the wicked neighborhood in which it is sit uated. Hair. Not less than ninety per cent, of tho women and live per cent, of the men in this country wear more or less false hair. This enormous consumption of the artificial and natural jiroduct sug gests the fact, fearful but true, that nine women out of every ten about the street, in the church, or on the cars, charming or ugly to a line, have on a wig or a weft, bandeau or a prepared net, bangs or waves, arranged at tho hairdresser's. Some peoplo think that blondes never grow gray headed. The fact is, one-third of white shreds may be mingled with such hair, and few will notice it- The same proportion of blond-headed peo ple turn gray as those with any other colored hair. The proportion of people who dye their i.air is also surprising. Some twenty per cent, arc said to do this. Of course, the greater proportion of this class arc whit '-haire.l people. A white head is often, though not always, a sign of a life of trouble. The dresser is more than often amused by requests from the country for "cold waler frizzes." These, of course, comprise an article whi;-h will curl easily by application of water ami are easily supplied. Ci.rly hair has been the fashion for a year or more. Of ihel to, human hair is the no-t called for. "Hair-raising" is a sort of industry in Europe. The peasant girls, who are much in tlie open air, get their heads cropped once a year, and thus furnish a portion of the supply. They are satisfied with a stipend so small that an American Atoman would scorn to touch six limes its value. Of the ma terial imported France supplies half the trade ami England ami Germauy dividu the rest. The raw material lin.ls its way here iu great quantities, ami is made "up on this side of the water.
