A SOLDIER'S TARGET.
By Chnrles D. Lewis.
Five sturdy recruits, every man of
them n farmer's son, had been turned
over to dwmpnny D nn liour or two
before It left cnmji to take Its place
on the picket line In front of the Third
"Good thing for you boys," said a
good-natured sergeant, ns he saw to
their equipments. "We're out where
you'll see plenty of Johnnies before
eundow, and you'll get used to the ping
of hot lead. Our last batch of fresh
fish lny around camp three months be
fore they heard a shot tired.' '
The recruits smiled, and were pleased
ns they fell In nnd marched away with
the veterans. They had come down to
be soldiers. It would do them credit to
write home that they had been under
fire on the llrst day of their arrival.
Perhaps they would have a chance at
"game" before the day was over.
Company D halted and erected Its
tents at the reserve picket, half a mile
In the rear of "the front," and pres
ently the details were made up to re
lieve the old pickets. .There were two
men to each post, and the new men
were distributed with the old as far as
their number went. Jason White, 24
years old Just two weeks nway from
the plow on his father's farm found
himself on post with a sun-tanned vet
eran who was serving out the last of
bis second year.
"My name's Jim Taylor," said the
veteran, us he leaned on his musket
and gave his companion a looking over.
"You size up pretty well, but one can't
alius tell. Last man I broke in turned
out to be a hell of a fighter, and If he
hadn't trio to stop a solid shot he'd
hev bin a sergeant by this time. What
made ye enlist?"
"I thought It was my duty," replied
' 'Oh, I see! You Jest waited two years
and then felt it your duty to come
down here and lick the stuttln out of
Lee's army? It was awful good of you
to think thnt way! If you'll only pitch
In and finish things up this week we'll
all feel much oblecged to you!"
Jason White looked at the old veter
an in a puzzled way, and was Inclined
to resent his sarcasm, but while he
was thinking It over the other contin
ued. "It's my opinion that you made a
eussed fool o' yerself by cnllstln', and
that you don't know duty from a cab
bage head. However, as you are here
It's fur me to show ye the ropes. Did
ye ever sass anybody?"
"I expect I have," stammered the
"Well, that's good as fur as It goes.
If you've talked right up to folks at
home and let 'em understand that you
was able to take keer of yerself, that's
a sign of grit. Ever hev a fight?"
"Yes, two or three of 'em."
"Lick the other feller?"
"That's better that kind o' satisfies
me that you've got grit. When ye en
listed it never occurerd to ye that yo
might git one o' these things bored
through yer body, did It?"
And the veteran took a musket ball
from his cartridge box, and reached
over and tapped the recruit on the
breast with it. The "fresh fish" moved
back and turned pale, and with a grim
emlle the other continued:
"Makes a hole in a man's body almost
as big as yer list, and he don't git up
and play leap-frog arterwards, either.
Did ye ever shoot a dog at home?"
"Wei!, I shot a dog once, and I've
thought of it a good many times since
beln' down here. He was lookln' at
me, pitiful like, when I pulled the trig
ger and U'b bin Jest that way In the
case of two or three men. I've pulled
the trigger on 'em when I could look
right Into their eyes, and they was
Beeemln' to nsk me to spare 'em. I
thought If you had killed a dog It would
come easier to kill a man, but mebbe
you'll be all right anyway."
"What do you mean by klllln' a
man?" slowly asked the recruit, as he
leaned heavily against the beech tree
at his back.
"Say, but that's funny!" laughed the
veteran. "Klllln' a man? Why, what
the devil did you come down here for?
Did ye expect to swing a hammock un
der a tree and smoke all day?"
"I I came down to fight."
"Oh! ye did! Well, that means klllln
somebody, 1 guess. Leastwise, you'll
find the Johnnies are klllln' lots of us,
and you've got to kill In return. If wo
wasn't out on the picket-line you'd hev
waited and killed yer first man In a
battle, but as It Is ye'll git In yer work
weeks ahead. We shall be out here fur
a week, and during that time ye orter
pop over about four. It'll all depend
on yer nerve, though. What's hap
pened to make ye look so devilish whlto
around the gills?"
"Nuthln'," was the brief reply, as
the recruit set his Jaws together and
made a great effort to brace up.
"Nuthln', eh? Didn't know but ye
wished ye was back home hoein' corn
about this time. Now, I'll explain
things to you a bit clearer. Thar's a
rebel picket about opposite to us. and
not over a musket shot away. Thar
are two men, same as us, and It's our
bl.ness to kill them and their blzness
to kill us. Jest so long as we stay hid
here they can't see us, but Its our duty
to crawl down and git a shot. They
may be crawiin' up on us at this very
mlnlt. Ye see, the idea Is to kill. One
man don't count fur much, but If we
kll lenough we'll blmeby have a hun
dred. Pooh! What's the matter?"
Jason White had sunk down at the
foot of the tree, and was looking around
him In apprehension.
"If they had a line on ye they'd shoot
ye slttln' down as soon as standin' up,"
Bald the veteran. "I've knowed men
to be killed even when they was lyln'
down. Now, if you're ready, we'll Jest
work down on the left Hank and see
If we can't catch them Johnnies nap
pin'." "Do you mean that you are goln to
creep around und shoot a man In cold
blood?" demanded the recruit, a3 he
rose up with his knees trembling.
"What the hell alls you!" growled
Taylor, as a scowl darkened his face.
"Cold blood! "Who talks about cold
blood down here at the front? We're
down here to kill or be killed, ain't
we? I ain'l goln' to let no feller kill
me If I can plunk him fust. If wo
don't go arter them they'll come arter
us, and so what ye goln' to do about
ItT I kinder sized ye up at fust as
hevln' some grit, but I guess I was
wrong. I guess you'd better stayed
at home and played with a doll-baby!"
"You're a liar!" shouted Jason White.
"Oh! Eh! Ha! ha! Got yer mad up at
last, eh? Well, keep It a-bllln' and
come along with me. Down on yer
hands and knees, and ye want to be as
ly as a fox."
In his momentary anger the recruit
had determined to submit to any test
required of him; but as he wormed
himself through the bushes at the heels
of the veteran fear crept back Into his
heart, and he was almost on the point
Of rising and running away. When they
bad gone about 300 feet, making their
way as carefully as Indians on a hot
trail, Taylor paused and whispered:
"You wait here and lemme go on
alone and locate 'em. Jest keep callla'
B a liar and git as mad as ye can."
He was gone ten minutes. During
that lnteral Jason White had to linns
on to the bushes to prevent himself
from running away. When the veteran
returned there was a smile uti his face
and he reached out und patted the re
cruit on the back and mild;
"Luck Is with ye, my boy. The two
Johnnk-s Bre slttln' down and smokln'
and plnyln' cards, nnd we can creep
up within fifty feet of 'em. You can't
miss hlttln' a man In the back ut that
"1 shoot a man In the back!" gasped
"Fur sure! What In the devil's name,
are ye klckln' ubout? Why, 1 ortor
charge ye a tun-dollar bill fur huntln'
up yer game! Jest think of It ye'll
write home tonight that ye've killed
yer llrst Johnny. Come along, and
don't be a blamed fool!"
The recruit followed him through the
bushes nnd over the dead logs nnd
limbs until he made u halt beside a
dead tiee. At a distance of not over
ten rods the confedeiate pickets were
seated on the ground, with pipes In
their mouths nnd cauls In their hands.
There had been no thing on the front
that day und they had been lulled
Into a feeling of security.
"Host your gun across the log there
and take dead aim at his back," whis
pered the vetcrun, as he pulled the
frnali flah" fnrwnril.
"No neverl" gusped Jason White as
he hung back.
"What! D'ye mean that ye won t
filunk a Johnny Heb arter all the trou
ble I've had to set up a muik fur ye'.'"
"I 1 can't do It!"
"Durn ye fur a booby and a coward!
You hain't got sand 'nuff to tight a tly.
Say, young feller, lemme tell ye sun
thin'. When 1 go back to the com
pany and report what a white-livered,
chicken-hearted rag baby ye ar', what
are the boys goln' to suy or do? Thar'
ain't a man as will even look at ye
agin, and the captain will ask that ye
be drummed out as a disgiuce to tho
service. That's what you'll git, and
nobody will pity ye."
"I I think I'll shoot him!" whispered
the recruit after a struggle with him
self. "Will unybody call It murder If
I do?" , . ,
"Murder bosh! Can't ye understand
that Uncle Sam Is payln' ye $10 a month
to kill Johnnies, and that he don't give
a cuss whether ye do it with a club
or a musket? I'll git along down be
side ye and take the further man at
the same time. They won't neither of
'em ever know what hit 'cm arter we
pull the trigger. Lord, what a fair
mark you've got to shoot at! I could
plump a bullet Into him with my eyes
shet. Set down and kill yer fust man.
Jason white slowly knelt down and
stretched out at full length, and thrust
the barrel of his musket over the log.
He breathed hard, his eyes were shut,
and the muzzle pointed over the tree
"Durn you!" growled the veteran, as
he gave him a kick, "have ye turned
Into a baby or an old woman? What s
the matter now? Are you goln' to wait
until they git the alarm and take shel
ter. Jest draw a bead on the middle of
that Johnny's back." .
"I I can't do It!" murmured the re
cruit, a he let go of his musket and
stared at the Veteran with a face as
white as snow. "1 enlisted fer a sol
dier, but I can't shoot a man In cold
blood. And I-I don't wan't you to.
either. When It comes to a battle I n
shoot but not now not now."
"Uncle Sam got a perch when you

lor as he looked down upon the other
In supreme contempt. "How we would
thin out the Johnnies If we had a
thousand fish worms like you in the
Fourth brigade! Goln' to shoot or not?
The recruit raised his hands to his
face and began to wave his body to
and fro and sob and moan. His nerve
was gone. He had no more courage
than a baby. A look of pity crossed
ii i,.n,,'a fnno ns he rc-carded the
"fresh fish" for a moment, and then
he knelt down to take a shot alone.

Five minutes passed, but they did not
reappear. Then, with a muttered oath
Taylor esumed his feet and said to
the weeping man sitting on the earth:
"I wish one o' them Johnnies would
Kit a bead on you! Git yer musket and
come along. You ain't no good on

He made his way back to the picket
post, growling to himself as he went,
and at his heels followed the white
faced, weeping recruit. At the foot
of the beech tree Jason White stretched
out and covered his face with his hands
and wept and sobbed like a grieved
child. Not a word passed between the
two. Half nn hour later the sergeant
came along with the relief, and looking
down upon the broken and helples3
man. carelessly queried: ,a

Corolus Durau Talks on Art.
It was the privilege recently of tho
pupils of the Chase School of Art to
listen to a talk on art by M. Carolus
Duran, the eminent French painter,
at the Chase Btudlos In New York.
Mr. William M. Chase Introduced M.
Duian to the students In a short speech.
M. Duran was enthusiastically ap
plauded when he stepped forward. Ho
prefaced his talk on art, a purely tech
nical one and of great value to his
hearers, by expressing his regret at
being unable to address the young peo
ple In Englllsh. He spoke for a while
about artists of an earlier period, nota
bly Velasquez, and their lnlluence on
art. He urged the students to avoid
carelessness in their work. Order meant
much in painting and so did simplic
ity, which he especially Impressed upon
On a frume near M. Duran were a
dozen or more portraits by the stu
dents. He referred to these frequently
In Illustrating his talk, and especially
the technique of painting. His copious
criticism of the studies Interested hs
hearers, although the speaker avoided
dwelling unpleusantly upon deficiencies
to which he referred In the works.
He said that the artistic movement
was not general; It was Influenced by
all sorts of conditions. "Painting Is the
expression of certain sensations," said
M. Duran. "wnere painting oegms mu
sic ends, and where pulntlng ends, po
"You should not seek to merely copy
the model that Is posed before you, but
rather to take Into account the Im
pression thnt Is made upon the mind.
You should seek to give your llrst Im
pression of nature.
"Take careful account of the sub
stances that you must render wood,
metal, textures, for instance. When
you fall to reproduce nature ns you feel
It, then you falsify It. Painting Is not
done with the eyes, but with the brain.
It Is not so much tho means that you
should consider as the end to be at
tained." M. Duran said that he would look In
at the studios some day when the stu
dents were studying from a model and
would Illustrate his views by painting
from the model himself for their in
struction. "I may then point out to you
some rather unplensant truths," said
M. Duran, smilingly.
After the address the pupils were
nresented to the painter, who shook
hands with them Individually and gavo
each a word of encouragement. Then
the Inevitable "camera fiend" popped
up, one of the young woman, and took
a snap shot of Messrs. Duran, Chase,

"Best" is an easy boast. But there's no best without a test. You
expect something extra of best j something extra in bread from best
flour-; something extra in wear from best cloth; something extra in
cures from best medicines. It's that something extra in Ayer's Sarsa
parilla that makes Ayer's the best. That something extra is quality.
Remember it's quality that cures, not quantity. Geo. Smith of the
People's Drug Store, Seymour, Conn., says: "I have sold your goods
for twenty-five years and when a customer asks me for
The Best Preparation
for the Blood
I say: 'If you will take my opinion, use Ayer's Sarsaparilla; I will guar
antee that you will receive more benefit by using one or two bottles of
Ayer's than you would by using half a dozen bottles of some other kind.'
When they take it, I never hear any complaint."
Ayer's Sarsaparilla cures all diseases that have their origin in impure
blood: sores, ulcers, boils, eruptions, pimples, eczema, tetter, scrofula, etc.
It cures cheaply, it cures quickly, and it cures to stay. That's why it's best.
"After twenty years' experience a a druggist, I consider Ayer's Sarsaparilla superior to
any similar preparation on tho market, and 1 give it the preference over all others."
A. C. WOODWARD, Worcester, Mass.
"In our estimation, as regards Sarsaparilla, Ayer's is the standard. We have never
heard it spoken of in other than the very highest terms.' ;.
W. E. TERUILL & CO., Pharmacists, 9 State Street, Montpelicr, Vt.

" During fifteen years of experience with Ayer's Sarsaparilla, I have yet to learn of a
tingle case wherein it failed to cure if used according to directions."
F. O. COLLINS, Druggist, Paris, Mo.

compound." JAMES DOANE, Dispensing Chemist, Kin'gsville, Out.
