Thrilling Incident of tho Battlo cl
Bunkor Hili
Tho battle of Bunker III11 gave the
occasion for many deeds of valor and
since that day we hold a list of names
Illuminated in our memory One of
these names belongs to the Knight of
Derryfleld Do you remember who lie
was and can you recall the song of his
bravery Read of it once more and
have impressed again on your heart
the implicit obedience and perfect
I courage of the New Hampshire farm-
ers and their captain John Moor
When the forty five men of the litle
town of Derryfleld N II loft their
homes to fight for the great cause each
Knew mat no men were ever leu uy a
braver man than their beloved Captain
Moor His courage had Inspired many
of them in the French nnd Indian war
So eagerly when the alarm came in
179 they marched with him and his
drummer boy son to Cambridge where
he was entered a captain in Starks
And now comes the battle of Bunker
Hill Behind a fence piled thick with
grass Captain Moors company lay as
still as death An order had come from
Colonel Stark that not a shot was to be
fired until the British passed a stake
that was driven a short distance away
with perfect confidence in themselves
and their captain the farmers waited
waited motionless while that beauti
ful death dealing pageant of British
warriors swept grandly toward them
With the coolness and wonderful pre
cision of a dress parade the old world
came to meet the new the grenadiers
and light Infantry marching in single
file twelve feet apart the artillery ad
vancing more slowly and thundering
out an Insolent defiance to the con
ceited little rebels while on eam side
fve battalions formed an oblique line
to the fence reashvoiks The very
flower of the English army full blos
somed In learned maneuvers resplen
dent in shining arms and waving ban
ners advanced to meet a little group of
men untrained in tactics of warfare
only half armed clad in homespun
hiding behind a breastwork of grass
The dead line was crossed Bang
Bang Bang The little rebels were
awake at last Now not the stake
but a line of fallen bodies marked the
dead line Thunder and lightning
belched forth from that breastwork
A fire Intense steady killing and the
brave march of the Britishers was
checked A slight recoil and the offi
cers dashing up again urged the line
forward Not for one moment did the
grass fence cease its voice of fire and
shot One by one the brave grenadiers
and their dashing gallant officers fell
to the earth The ranks broke and the
proud host fled before the meager
handful of New Hampshire men Ah
if we could only have had grass breast
works and Captain John Moor all
along the American line C F Harri

A Philanthropist
An earnest east side worker says
that not long ago she was approaches
by an old gentleman who has the rep
utation of being something of a philan
thropist with the request that he bo
permitted to accompany her on one of
her rounds of visits Much pleased
the worker consented The destitute
condition in which many families were
found elicited expressions of deep sym
pathy from the old gentleman but tc
his companions surprise and regret
nothing more material Presently the
came upon a small girl weepirg bit
What is it my dear the old gen
tleman inquired
The child raised a tear stained face
and pointed into a dark alleyway Me
mudder sent mo to buy some bread
an I lost my dime in there an Ill git
licked awful she sobbed
Poor dear he remarked in a tender
voice at the same time putting his
hand into his vest pocket Dont cry
Here I j match Perhaps you will be
able to find it Harpers

Moody on the Cards
One evening in San Francisco Eva1
gelist Moody sat in his room at the h
tel playing a game of cards with Mr-
Moody and two friends when a meh
senger came in with a dispatch Ai
the boy stood waiting for a reply Ml
Moody suddenly asked Wont you sit
down my lad and have a gamo of
authors with us
The boy declined and soon left tht
room Hardly had the door closed
when Mrs Moody said Why Dwighi
what made you think of Inviting thi
boy to sit down and play with us
My dear replied Moody dont yo
see If I had not called the boys atten

An Instanco of Finding Fun In tho
Midst of Disaster
The laugh often comes In tho very
-WW w A llSU UUU IfwMO
cannot check the response to the com
ical An instance of finding fun in the
midst of disaster Is told by Captain T
C Morton in the Southern Historical
Papers The Confederate picket line
was stationed on a sandy bottom near
a creek
John Ford one of the men on duty
was very plucky He was seated near
an uprooted tree and could be plainly
seen by all his company Suddenly a
i large mortar shell fell unexplodcd In
the sand about four feet from Iilin
the fuse smoking and sputtering
John took in the situation at a
glance He argued to himself that the
shell would burst before he could get
up and run away so that the safest
thing he could do would be to get into
the ground as fast as possible With
tue utmost rapidity he began to work
down into the sand with hands feet
and head The men watched the pro
ceedings shouting
Scratch John scratch Shes going
It Avas an exciting spectacle Never
was a man more in enrnest The sand
all about was in commotion and In the
few seconds the fizzing fuse gave him
John burrowed like a great gopher till
nothing but the bump of his back was
visible as the loose sand settled above
The explosion came with a tremen
dous jar which shook the ground and
sent hundreds of pieces of iron singing
through the air Every one held his
breath expecting to see puor John
blown into atoms When the smoke
and dust blew away it was seen that
Fords head was still on his shoulders
He looked cautiously up and seeing all
was right sang out a hearty Who
eeh as cheerily as if he had treed a
coon instead of having been face to
face with death A cheer and a laugh
ran all along the line
The Letter That Brought Freedom to
Sir John Trovanion
During the great rebellion Sir John
Trevauion a distinguished cavalier
was made prisoner and locked up in
Colchester castle Sir Charles Lucas
and Sir George Lisle had just been
made examples of as a warning to
raalignants and Trevanion had ev
ery reason to expect a similar end As
he awaited his doom he was startled
by the entrance of the jailer who
handed him a letter
Mayt do thee good growled the
fellow It has been well looked to be
fore it was permitted to come to you
Sir John took the letter and the jailer
left him his lamp by which to read it
Wbrthie Sir John Hope that Is ye best
comfort of ye afflictyd cannot much I
fear me help you now That I wolde say
to ycu is this only If ever I may be able
to requite that I do owe you stand not
upon asking of me Tis not much I can
do but what I can do bee thou verle
sure I wille I knowe that if dethe comes
if ordinary men fear it It frights not you
accounting it for a high honour to have
such a rewarde of your loyalty Pray yet
that you may be spared this soe bitter
cup We prty that you may be I fear
not that you will grudge any sufferings
Only if bie submission you can turn them
away tis the part of a wise man Tell
me an if you can to do for you any
thinge that you wolde have done The
general goes back on Wednesday Rest
Inge your servant to command R T
Now this letter was written accord
ing to a preconcerted cipher Every
third letter after a stop was to tell In
this way Sir John made out Panel at
east end ot chapel slides On the fol
lowing evejlr the prisoner begged to
be allowed to pass an hour of private
devotion in the chapel By means of a
bribe this was accomplished Before
the hour had expired the chapel was

A Quick Retort
Tennessee bred two great orators in
the olden days Andrew Johnson a
Democrat once president of the Unit
ed States and Gustavus A Henry a
Whig known as the Eagle Orator of
the South They ran against each
other for governor and when a long
series of joint debates had reached its
close Johnson addressed the Whigs in
the audience I have spoken with the
boasted eagle orator from the Missis
sippi river to the Unaka mountains
and as jet I see no flesh in his talons
nor blood on his beak Quick as a
flash Henry was on his feet saying
The American eagle is a proud bird
and feeVls not on carrion
Birds Muscular Power
Birds are possessed of enormous
muscular power far exceeding in some
cases that of any other warm blooded
creature There is an instance on rec
ord of an eagle weighing no more than
fourteen pounds lifting and carrying
oH a young pig which weighed no less
rlan forty two pounds How many
ien could even stagger along the
ground carrying three times their own
weight in their hands The kick of
an ostrich is a fearsome thing It
will break a mans thigh or even the
leg of a horse Exchange

Papa Ah my boy the old days were

Tho Domuro Brown Maiden In He
Holiday Attire
The Japanese college girl entertained
the fudge party with oriental remi
On every holiday she said the
Japanese maiden must rise and have
her toilet finished before the sun looks
aver Fujiyama our sacred mountain
And what a toilet The long coarse
black tresses are washed eomlxd nnd
greased til the head shines llk a
knob of polished black marble The
cheeks are rouged a fine pink The
throat neck and hoFotu are powdered
bt at the uapt of the neck there are
left tlrce lines of the original brown
skin in accordance with the rules of
Japanese cosmetic art
With charcoal she rounds and
lengthens her eyebrows She reddens
her lips with cherry paste adding a
git diamond to the center of the pout
ing lower lip She puts on eight fresh
garments and she ties her obi or great
sash In a symbolical knot Her socks
she doesnt wear stockings are very
white and pure and her clogs are
lacquered till they shine like a silk hat
Now she is ready to set out She
fills her silk tobacco pouch thrusts her
pipe in her girdle puts six paper hand
kerchiefs up her wide sleeve and sal
lies forth turningdier toes in and wav
ing her fan with a demure grace

Tho Story of a Tooth Pulling by Peter
the Great
Peter the Great particularly delight
ed In drawing teeth nnd he strictly
enjoined his servants to send for him
when anything of that sort was to be
done One day his favorite valet do
chambrc seemed very melancholy The
czar asked him what was the matter
Oh your majesty said the man
my wife is suffering the greatest ag
ony from toothache and she obstinate
ly refuses to have the tooth taken out
If that is all said Peter we will
soon cure it Take me to her at once
When they arrived the woman de
clared that she was not sufferiug at
all there was nothing the matter with
That is the way she talks your
majesty said the valet She is suf
fering tortures
Hold her head and hands said the
czar I will have it out in a minute
And he instantly pulled out the indi
cated tooth with great dexterity amid
profuse thanks from the husband
What was Peters indignation to dis
cover a little later that his valet had
usedjhim as an executioner to punish
his wife who had never had an un
sound tooth in her head Argonaut
Bridge Whist
j At least GO per cent of the game of
1 bridge lies in the make A poor player
loses tricks and often the game and
rubber by his play but so many hands
occur in which there is really no play
that such losses are comparatively un
important compared with the havoc
wrought by an injudicious maker for
constantly his decision is invoked when
the safety of the game or its success
lies in his judgment of the value of
his hand To choose between hearts
or diamonds and no trumps to select
clubs rather than spades to know
when a five card suit is safe and
when one of four cards should be
chosen above all to keep an unrelax
ing attention upon the state of the
score with its shifting demands all
these are the sterling qualities of a
good maker Once sensible that you
are lacking in any such respect you
will find your game appreciably
strengthened by attention and study
Good Bridge
The Victorian English
The England which spoke the lan
guage which was already dying in the
eighteen sixties was before all things
a world of the country The sights and
sounds of nature played a far greater
part in the lives of the mass of the
people than they do today This is re
flected for instance in the way in
which birds and animals were spoken
of and the names given them I have
myself once or twice heard old people
in the country speak of the hen ns
Dame Partlet One is familiar with
the phrase from books of course it is
Chaucers Pertolette but once or
twice as a child I actually heard it I
suppose it would be impossible to hear
it anywhere now London Outlook
