I boarded the train at midnight
In the darkness and the ruin ,
And deeply bellowed the engine ,
And onward sped the train ;
Athwart my window , in showers ,
The sparkb to rearward sped
The fiery breath of the monster
Of steam and stcol ahead.
Anon wo neared a highway ,
And the hollow of the night
Was stirred by the volco of the demon ,
And I shuddered in affright ;
And anon wo nearcd a village ,
And the whistle's terrible roar
Proclaimed tbo power of the engine
And tbo speed at which wo tore.
With a steed so strong and mighty ,
( Conductor said "Old No. 4" ) ,
I knew that wo v-cre flying
A hundred miles an hour !
And I grasped the scat before me ,
And braced my feet for a crash ,
With that whistle ut crossroads howling
In our mad , Impetuous dasb.
I clinched my teeth at the danger ,
And my heart like a plummet dropt ;
When , alter an hour of terror ,
Tbo train at a station stopt ;
Then I found , to my consternation ,
Thai only ten miles we had gone
The demon , a "pony. * ' engine
With a great big whistle on !
The steam at that whistle wasted
Might have yielded far more speed ;
A man's imagination
Is an easy thing to mislead ;
And there arc engines human
On a very similar plan ,
Who are blowing too much whistle ,
And showing too little man.
A. W. Bellaw , in Detroit Free Press.
And a "Sweet-Looking Object" He
Was "When Beleased.
WAS down in
Louisiana , not
many years
ago , " to quote
from an old
song , that sev
eral companies
of us wicked
Yankees were
posted in a
small town , just
far enough from
N e w Orleans
and other im
portant points
for it to be of
no strategic
consequence for
its own sake ;
yet , being on a
direct route
from the enemy's lines to the Missis
sippi river , it was important as an out
post. The war % vas almost over , and
the enemy knew it , and we knew they
knew it , so we were not as vigilant as
we might have been had we been sta
tioned in front of Lee's army. The na
tives were loyally Southern , every man
of them perhaps I should say every
woman , for the only men left in town
were the few who had passed three
score years and ten ; one physician and
one preacher. But the natives did not
allow us to be uncomfortable. The
doctor disagreed radically with us on
principle , and cursed Grant fluently ,
but he took professional and even
friendly interest in such of us as had
more malaria than our regimental sur
geon could manage ; the preacher gave
us a sermon , and the old men would
smoke and chat with us all day , so long
as we did not say what we believed
about the future of military events.
As for the women , they were very
tenacious of their opinions , so far as the
war was concerned , but otherwise hos
pitable and charming. They didn't
mean to give us the entree of local so
ciety , but somehow we got there all the
same. We did it so quietly that none of
them knew how it began or who began
it. We purchased enough supplies to
set business booming , allowed no
marauding , wore clean clothing , and
were on our good behavior in every
way , President Lincoln having specially
ordered , through General Banks , that'
Louisiana must be "conciliated. "
The consequence was that we officers
soon knew everybody worth knowing ,
and were entertained with as much
courtesy and self-possession as if the
native coffee had not been burned rye
or some other substitute , and the table
cloths had not long- before been turned
into lint or bandages for Southern hos
The women never let us forget that
they were Southerners to the heart's
core , and that we were merely Lin
coln's hireling's ; still , they were women ;
they did not like to see any one appear
careless of dress , and soon there was
not a uniform coat with a loose-hang
ing1 button. To have a Southern woman ,
whether maid , wife or widow , or gray-
haired grandmother , bring a needle and
thread and tighten a button , while the
wearer stood awlrwardly in front of
her , was to realize that Louisiana was
not the only party to the war who was
being "conciliated. "
Every regiment had some officer , gen
erally a young Lieutenant , whose abil
ity , appearance and spirits compelled
his comrades to pronounce him the
flower of the flock. Ours was Will
Glennie. He was officer of the first
picket line we threw ont , and so im
pressed was he with the defensive possi
bilities of the place that we were glad
to have him relieve us of someTesponsi-
bility by taking charge of the slight-
earthworks it seemed advisable to erect ,
lie spent a full half of every day outside
the lines , looking for additional points
of vantage , and as no enemy had been
in the vicinity for weeks , he never cared
for a guard.
Time passed on so delightfully for a
fortnight that there was little but roll-
calls and picket duty to remind us that
we were soldiers. Every thing was too
pleasant to last , so one day a rattle of
musketry warned us that there was
trouble on the picket line. By the time
our bugles recalled us from our hospital
lounging-places and hurried us toward
the front , a soldier with a broken arm
came in and reported that some cavalry
had tried to force their way into town
by the western road , and. being re
pulsed , had dismounted , and were disa
greeing , in the usual milit.iry manner ,
with the pickets , who had fallen back
to Glennie's breastworks.
"Bless Glennie for the breastworks ! "
exclaimed our Major in command , after
he had shouted : "Double quick march ! "
The resistance made by our entire
force seemed to disgust the cavalry , for
in a couple of hours they ceased firing.
A special roll-call showed that none of
our men had been killed , and only two
or three wounded , but a Captain approached
preached the Major and said that Lieu
tenant Glennie was missing. He had
gone nearly a mile to the front , to a lit
tle elevation , where he had thought a
howitzer might advantageously be
posted gone two or three hours before
the enemy appeared.
"Captured , then , of course ! " groaned
the Major. "Confound it , gentlemen ,
for the good of the service I'd rather
have been captured myself. "
Most of us felt the same way , and we
were too dismal for the remainder of
the day e en to rejoice at having re
pulsed the cavalry. The entire force
went out as skirmishers for a mile or
two , asking questions at every planta
tion-house and cabin , but no one could
tell whether or npt the cavalry , as they
galloped away , had a Union officer with
We felt so ugly at our loss that we
feared to face the natives when we re
turned to town. What would they
think of us , as soldiers , when they
learned that the officer whom we all
cheerfully acknowledged as the ablest
soldier among us had fallen into the
enemy's hands ? The Major actually
bit off the mouth-piece of his pipestem
in a fit of anger ; but this severe action
did not return to us the flower of1 the
Just before sunset a sentry on the
road startled all of us as we lay behind
the works , by shouting : "
"Officer of the guard ! Flag of truce
coming ! "
We all sprang to the parapet , and
saw , emerging from the forest nearly
half a mile away , a horse , a rider
and a tiny white rag. The Major raised
his glasses , peered through them a mo
ment , dropped them and exclaimed :
"That flag is carried by a woman ! ' '
Then all of tis wished we had glasses.
The rider advanced slowly , until we
could see that she was not armed ; then
that she had a good seat and a fine fig
ure , and finally that she was young and
' 'Wants protection for her property ,
I suppose , " growled the Major. "Those
raiders are probably cleaning out the
family's barn and smoke-house , there
being nobody at home but women and
children. What do they suppose a few
infantry can do against nobody knows
how many cavalry ? "
Nevertheless , he went slowly out ,
alone , to meet her , at which Glennie's
Captain exclaimed :
"This isn't according to custom. Who
knows but she's a young man disguised ,
and will drop the Major with a pistol.
Come on , boys. "
Several of us followed him. As we
saw him twirling the ends of his mus
tache and tipping his hat slightly to one
side , we followed his example in these
respects also. We overtook the Major
just as the rider halted , looking very
pale , and said :
"It wasn't his fault , sir really it
wasn't. "
"Whose fault , madam ? " said the Ma
jor , rising his hat.
"Mr. Glennie's , " said the girl.
"Oh , confound it ! I mean so they
got him , did they ? "
"Oh , no , sir ; but he wishes they had.
And they would have done so , only
only "
"Well , madam ? "
"Only they were prevented. "
"Indeed ! How was that ? "
"Why , you see , sir , he stopped at our
house just for a drink of water , and
while he was standing by the well the
Rangers "
"Rangers ? "
"Yes , sir ; the Texas cavalry they
came across the hill just then. lie
started to run this waj- , but but "
"Well ? "
The girl looked down a moment , col
ored , raised her head , and said rapidly :
"I told him he would never get there
alive. I said they were a hundred to
one , and he'd surely be killed. I'm a
true Southern woman , sir ; my father is
Captain Grayson , of the artillery bat
talion , but I don't believe murder is
war , so I made him corne into the
house. Hu declared he wouldn't ; death
was nothing to duty. But I made him
come in. "
"Indeed ! What arguments did you
r. \ may I ask ? "
. ' .gain the girl looked down and col-
oifl deeply. Some of the young officers
began to exchange winks.
"He declared he wouldn't , " the girl
resumed , "but I made him. He strug
gled with all his might , but "
"I beg your pardon for interrupting , "
said the Major , biting his lip , "but he
escaped , then ? "
"Yes , sir ; but not a moment tbo soon.
I hadn't more than got him into the
hogshead "
"Hogshead ? "
"Yes , sir ; a big sugar hogshead in the
cellar that we had meant to keep sweet
potatoes in , when two of the Rangers
came to the front door. The.y said they'd
seen a Yankee at the well fcjjd wanted
hun. I told them he had.seen them and
made a dash for his own lines. He
really did , you know , for a step or two ,
when when "
"When you warned him of his dan
ger ? "
"Yes , sir. Well , they took my word
when I told them who my father was
and they went away. "
"Ah ! Where are the Rangers now ? "
"They went back I don't know
where hours ago. "
"And caught him as they went ? "
"Oh , no , sir ; they couldn't. But he
was in a dreadful excitement. He said
he had no right to be outside the lines ;
he could be court-martialed for it and
disgraced , and may be shot if things
went wrong in the fight. He went on
so that I wouldn't listen to him , and I
was afraid that some of the Rangers
might come back and hear him , so I
wouldn't stay and listen to him. "
"But why didn't he return after they
retired ? "
"Because he couldn't , sir. I wouldn't
let him. I didn't want him to be court-
martialed and shot , and all of those
dreadful things ; so I thought it would
be only right to come and tell you it
wasn't his fault. "
"The enemy has been gone several
hours , " said the Major , turning with a
suspicious look to us. "I'm afraid there
is some ruse about this. " Then he
turned to the girl , and sternly said :
"Young woman , if your story is true ,
he should have returned by this time.
He kno'ws there is nothing to fear , and
there is nothing to prevent his coming
.back , if he knows the enemy have dis
appeared. "
"Oh , yes , there is , sir ; there's a cover
to the hogshead , and a padlock beside. "
"Oh h , " said the major , with many
inflections , "he's your prisoner , is he ?
But , heavens , madam , if he has been
locked in a hogshead all this time he's
probably suffocated. Confound "
"Oh , no , " said the girl , with an as
suring smile. "There's a big bunghole
to the hogshead , and I know he has
sense enough to breathe through it , be
cause when I went down and whispered
through it that the Rangers had gone
home again , he "
"What did he say ? "
"Nothing he but I know he was
alive and just like his old self. " Then
the girl suddenly dropped her eyes
again and colored deeply , while a very
young Lieutenant murm ured :
D"Um ! "
"I see , " drawled the Major , very
slowly. "Attention ! First company ,
deploy as skirmishers. Forward ! "
The girl turned her horse's head
quickly , looked backward , set her lips
firmly , and exclaimed :
"You're not going to court-martial
and shoot him ? "
"Suppose I were ? " said the Major , as
the men began to file from behind the
"curtain" that commanded the road.
"Then , " said the girl , "I'll galloj
ahead at the risk of my life , and let hin
escape on my ponj' . "
"Madam-said the Major , lifting hi ;
hat , "I give you the word of a soldiei
and a gentleman that you shall be his
sole judge. "
The skirmish line advanced , and tin
officers of the other companies followed
the girl and the Major. The lattei
should have ordered us to remain witt
our men , but he didn't. We reached
the house more than a mile outside the
lines without annoyance ; and when
the girl had lighted a candle we fol
lowed her and the Major to the cellar.
The Major's suggestion that the girl
should first whisper at the bunghole
and see if the captive was still alive ,
was not acted upon. Instead , she said ,
cheerily , as she turned the key and
raised the cover :
"You've nothing to fear , Will. "
"Will ! " murmured the very young
Just then Glennie's face appeared
above the edge of the staves , and
seemed somewhat disconcerted at the
grinning faces before him. Several
pairs of hands helped him out , and as
he stood before us , with crystals of
light brown sugar glistening all over
his uniform coat , the Major remarked :
"You're a sweet-looking object ! "
Miss Grayson smiled as if she thought
so , too.
"You see , Major " began Glennie.
"Yes , " said the Major , "I certainly
do. I see , also , that one of two things
must be done for the good of the serv
ice. . Either our lines must be extended
a mile or two further into the country ,
or you must persuade this lady's family
to move to town. "
The family moved ; Miss Grayson fin
ally moving all the way to New York.

It is only the one-idead , non-
progressive merchant that con
siders advertising an expense.
True , the papers that he pays
his money to never pay it back
to him as money ; but they do
better : they give him what his
business lives on publicity
and trade.
Advertising is an invest
ment , just as much as any com
modity or goods the merchant
buys. Not only that , but it is
the best investment he can
make. There is no line of
goods , dollar for dollar , that
gives him so large a return for
the amount laid out.
If you , Mr. Merchant , are
doing a small business , and
would like to see it growthere
is only one way to make it
bring the people to your store ,
and when you get them there
give them nice goods and the
value of their money.
It is a great mistake to call
advertising an expense.
The school book question is
under consideration in the
Missouri legislature as well as
in the Nebraska and Kansas
legislatures. The Alliance ,
through its president , has de
clared in favor of the state
printing the books and distrib
uting them to the pupils at
cost , and it is not unlikely the
farmers in the legislature will
will support that proposition.
What is believed to be a bet
ter method for obtaining cheap
text books is suggested by
Representative Coats of Platte
county- who has prepared a
measure providing for the ap
pointment by the governor of
a commission of five well qual
ified teachers to investigate
the subject , and if they con
sider it advisable , to let the
contract for publishing the
books to the lowest bidder.
This plan would give the pub
lic the benefit of competition ,
without encouraging the prin
ciple of paternalism in state
government , which is always
open to serious objections.
