Perhaps the morning never dawned
on a sadder scene than on July 4th.
'63, when over the blood-sodden field
of Gettysburg the light began to break.
Could all the history of the wounded
and dead have been written never be
fore had been such a chronicle of ro
mance and tragedy, but it was not;
only now and then a leaf, as It were,
has been written and preserved this
one by an army nurse.
My hands and skirts were dabbed in
blood; my heart was faint within me.
For long hours I had fasted and work
ed; Into my ears had been poured the
most tender of last messages; the most
"Ton ought to rest a little," said the
rough but kindly voice of an old sur
geon; "only. If you can stand up a
minute longer there Is a case over
here I want you to see. In silence I
followed him to a small church build
ing that had been turned into an hos
pital. Every pew was a bed of pain;
blood dripped from between the altar
rails; even the aisles were partially
blocked with the wrecks of humanity.
It is in a scene like this that one ap
preciates the "other side" of war.
The surgeon led me straight to the
singer's stand and pointed to a young
man In shoulder straps, whose blonde
curls were matted and whose beautiful
blue eyes, beautiful even in their pain,
roved restlessly over the walls aud
celling. He was lying flat on his back
with only a prayer book for a pillow.
I saw at a glance that an arm was
gone. The fingers of the other hand
"I can't make out whether he Is In
his right mind or not," the surgeon
said in an undertone. "Maybe you caa
I kneeled and laid my hand on his
brow. He seemed not to have noticed
me before. Now he turned a 6tart:ed,
wondering gaze on me. His lips moved,
but at first I could not catch the
words. By and by I made out:
"I want Dollle. Please bring Dollie
here." Again: "I will give all I have
to the one who will bring me Dollie."
Who is Dollie?" I asked, gently,
still smoothing his forehead.
He looked up with almost a smile in
his eyes, and asked naively:
"Don't you know Dollle?"
"I am afraid I don't," I said, and I
smiled a little, too.
"Dollle is my sweetheart," he an
swered a moment later. His face was
very grave now. "And, oh, how she
cried when I came away! Poor Dol
lle!" A few moments I busied myself In
trying to make him more comfortable;
then he broke out again:
"It only I could see her just a few
minutes It would be heaven on earth.
Maybe she would come if she knew I
am sick. I am sick, ain't I?"
"What ails me? I feel so queer and
sore all over and "
"There!" he suddenly Interrupted
himself "If you look quick you will
see Dollle's head up there when the
light shines on that lamp. Look!
Why, how natural her curls, and she
smiles at me out of the corners of her
eyes a trick of hers. Dear Dollie!
She's gone now. I dreamed of her last
night; dreamed that her arms were
about my neck and that she was kiss
ing me and calling me her soldier
'Was she willing for you to go to
war?" I asked. Like the doctor, I was
not sure of his mental condition.
"Tea, willing in a way. She felt
"I WANT DOLUS.
that it was right for me to go, and
right Is law with Dollie."
I went away then, but an hour later,
having bribed a good woman over tho
way to let me have a pillow her last
one I returned to his side. It seemed
to me that he had failed during my
absence and the troubled look in his
eyes was Intensified.
When I had put the pillow under his
head and bathed his face, he said,
"How very kind you are! Your
touch 'minds me of mother's."
Then I knew he was watching me.
but he did not speak for a long time,
and'when he did it was not to me:
"Father In heaven, let me see Dollie
oace more; please send her to me."
I could not stand either the words
or the pathos in the voice. I must
help answer that prayer if possible.
By and by I said:
"Could you tell me where to send for
Dollle? Maybe she would come to you
If It Is not too far, and I should tell
her how much you need her."
It was a hazardous thing to say. We
did not often dare make such sugges
tions, for, of course, few comparative
ly, could come, and it did not do to
raise false hopes. However, I felt
confident that he could not live many
hours, and his pleadings touched me
Inexpressibly, even amid the scene
and sights surrounding.
At the question he flashed me such
That was all, but oh, the intensity of
It! "Write to S. B. SterlIng.SterlIng'8
I was not In the least doubt of his
sanity at the moment, but before I
could trace the words in my notebook,
his gaze was once more on the cell
ing, and he was babbling of mother
Reluctantly I brought myself to
search his pockets, finding, strange to
say, only a notebook with the name in
gilt letters on the cover: "Donald
My letter was brief, only this:
"Donald Dee Is dangerously wounded
and calls ceaselessly for Dollle."
It was a memorable Fourth of July,
one never to be forgotten by the poor
fellows suffering through the hot. In
terminable hours, or the busy surgeons
and nurses, who never paused in their
work of moistening hot lips, bathing
throbbing brows, washing out gaping
wounds,recelving last messages, "writ
ing letters home;" in short, doing what
they could when everything was to
As soon as possible we had the
young captain removed to more com
fortable quarters. His wounds were
doing fairly well, but the surgeon said
tho shock had been too much for his
nervous system; he might or might not
live. "Everything, I should say, de
pends upon the nursing," he added,
looking meaningly at me.
"I will do my best for him till Dol-
lie comes," I made answer, but my
heart misgave me; I did not think she
would come, and If she did well, the
future was veiled, as futures are apt to
Day by day he wasted away. Al
though I prepared him fairly decent
messes be scarcely ate at all; and
though a real bedstead had been loan
ed him, with a real though somewhat
dilapidated straw mattress on it, he
seldom slept. Without being moody,
be was not talkative. He seemed to
be silently consumed by some Inward
"He Is dying to see his sweetheart
poor boy!" was what the surgeon said,
and what we all thought.
It was the evening of the fourth day
after I had sent my message to Sterling
Corners. Sitting by his couch, fanning
him it was Intensely hot I was
startled to hear him say in a hurried
"You don't think she will get here In
To give myself time to frame an an
swer, I feigned not to understand.
"I am afraid I will not hold out till
Dollie gets here. I dreamed this after
noon that her mother was here by the
bed. and she said, You won't have to
wait much longer, Donald.' Her
mother is dead, you know, and I think
it means that I am soon to go."
Assuming a hopefulness that I was
far from feeling I answered: "I do not
so interpret your dream. I take it
that you will not have long to lie here
and wait before Dollie comes."
He caught hopefully at the. sugges
tion and seemed much better all night
Early the next morning I went to see
a poor boy whose end was unmistak
ably near and who called me "mother."
I was detained some time and as my
return to my headquarters necessitated,
my passing where Capt Dee was quar
tered. I thought to serve him his
breakfast and then take an hour or
two of rest
The surgeon met me, saying: "Dollie
has come and is waiting out there in
the kitchen. See her and then break
the news to him. He is very weak
My heart beat fast; at last I would
see Dollie with her arm3 about her
lover's neck. I could imagine just
the way he would look at her; he said
so much with his eyes.
I paused on the threshold of the
kitchen; she was not there no one
but the cook, a strange man and a lit
tle child were in the room. Dollle
must have grown impatient and sought
him out; the shock might kill him.
Hurriedly I turned away, but as I
did so the child sprang forward and
caught my hand, exclaiming vehement
ly: "Dollie wants her papa!"
In soy surprise I Jerked my hand
away and fairly staggered backwards,
It was all I coald say.
"Of course I'm Dollle, she answered
la an Injured tone, adding plteoasly:
"I want my papa, and he wants me."
The stranger, an elderly gentleman,
now Interposed by hand!ng me my
own letter and saying:
"I am 8. B. Sterling, Donald Dee's
stepfather, and this Is little Dollle, his
"Certainly yes, I see," I stammered,
and I did, though as yet dimly; It was
so entirely different from what I had
And then I went to Capt Dee. He
seemed restless and feverish, and I
gave myself time by wetting a cloth
and placing It on his head.
By and by I said:
"If Dollle should come today, could
you bear the Joy of It?"
"I'd like to try the experiment. and
a ghost of a smile flitted over his
wan features. "Joy is not as apt to
be fatal as either hope deferred or
rebel bullets, and X know something
of both of these."
Then I said:
"Well, she Is here."
I can no more describe the unutter
able look of gladness that lighted his
face than I can describe the rapture o!
"Thank God and you!
A few moments later Dollle was
covering his face and hands with kisses
and he was hugging her with his one
arm and calling her "sweetheart" ovei
and over again.
For the time the grandfather and I
stood apart and let them enjoy them
selves, the former telling 'me mean
while of the unusual affection exist
ing between them, of how the young
wife had died while Dollie was a babe
and of the almost constant prayer of

days later he was .taken home to the

children, for you must know Donald
and I celebrated our next Fourth In a
far more pleasing manner than the one
a year before, and Dollle has long been
my sweetheart as well as his.
A DASH OF POWDER.
It fa at the Temple, Ifet on the Cheek
An affectation of the moment t
feminine affectation, of course is c
dash of powder on the hair Just abovt
one temple. The pompadour style ol
coiffure offers a particularly good field
for exploit, and there is no doubt thai
it has a chic effect all of Its own. Verj
young women are most given to it
The middle-aged, whose locks are al
ready whitening at the temples, have
little use for it, though as a matter ol
diplomacy they now and then turn II
to account The dash of powder, sc
patently artificial, distracts attention
from the naturally silver threads. Bui
it is the young that delight in it, jusl
as they delight in all-black costume!
and matronly millinery and other staid
and sober things that hint of age and
dignity, and which they will be only
too glad to forswear so soon as the;
have reached a staid and sober age.
The fashion of all-over powdered hair,
by the way, is decidedly Imminent

accepted thing for full dress next sea

that coming event we have the fash

SAFE FROM BURGLARS.
Perhaps there is not so much dan
ger from the intrusions of burglars in
this country as there is abroad and
that may be the. reason why there are
not here such wonderful vaults built
for the safekeeping of valuables. The
most remarkable strong room Is that
in which the valuables of the Bank ol
England are stored. It is one of the
largest in the world. The foundation,
sixty-six feet below the street level, Is
a bed of concrete twenty feet thick.
Above this is a lake seven feet deep,
and above that thick plates of iron,
specially manufactured to resist both
skill and force, says the New York
Telegraph. Anyone attempting an en
trance from above would find a simi
lar bed of concrete, a similar lake and
similar plates of iron. The walls are
impenetrable, while the doors are one
foot thick, weigh four tons each an'
are made absolutely undrillable.
Mr. W. W. Astor's valuables are
stored in the office of the Pall Mall
Gazette in one of the most remarkable
strong rooms ever erected. It is steel
throughout and covered with half an
inch of solid concrete. The door, also
of solid steel, weighs over two tons
and has the most remarkable lock
which ingenuity of Chubb has ever
constructed. The whole cost a fabu
lous sum, but this is not surprising
when we are told that Mr. Astor locks
up about $40,000,000 worth of valuables
and money in this room.
.The Imperial Ottoman bank, Con
stantinople, had a marvelous steel fort
built for it some years ago. It is bulk
upon a waterbearing rock and on the
top of the rock foundation is a four
foot bed of concrete. The height Is
over thirty-six fezt, length forty-six
feet and width twenty-four feet The
steel walls are surrounded by masonry
and concrete six feet thick throughout
while the whole comprises nearly thir
ty tons of steel.

A letter to Bradstreet 'a from MeJ
ourme, Australia, says:
The terrible drought that during tat
last ire yean has devastated the oca-;
tral and western portions of South
Wales Is not yet broken. The) losses
are appalling, the number of sheep la
the colony having fallen within the
last seven years from about 62.000.t0t
to about 40.000.000. the natural In
crease also being lost It will require
several good years In succession to re
pair the damage. The districts prin
cipally affected have almost literally
become a desert, large masses of sand
shifting from point to point according
to the prevailing wind. Boundaries
are in many cases obliterated; dams
and tanks, constructed at great ex
pense, are choked up and frequently
burled. The sheep and the rabbits. In
their last extremity, have eaten the
roots of nearly all the natural vegeta
tion. Doubtless the climatic Influences
will once more become favorable and
for a few years resettlement will pro
ceed. But the truth Is forcing Itself
upon the Judgment of capitalists In
terested In squatting, that the climate
of the central districts of Australia is
too precarious to Justify outlay, and a
great extent of country Is likely to be
abandoned. But the wide coastal dls
tricts of the continent of Australia
will, as they are Improved, more than
make amends for the recession from
an arM mnnirr that affords no en
couragement for permanent settlement
Notwithstanding the losses of sheep In
New South Wales, the total of the
Australasian flocks shows a slight In
crease as compared with ten years ago.
At the close of 1888 the total was esti
mated at about 97,000.000, and three
years later at about 124,500,000. It Is
now about 100.00.000.
Owing to the effects of the drought
the aggregate annual wool clip has
fallen off. For the year 1894-95 (from
July 1 to June 30) the total quantity
shipped from the Australasian colonies
was 1,951.800 bales. Last season
(1897-98) the total was 1.718.300 bales,
and It Is estimated that for the current
season, to close June 30 next, the total
will be 1,700.000 bales. A falling off ot
four years In succession, especially in
pure merino sheep, has, however.
gradually relieved the consuming mar
kets, which were somewhat congested
with stock, and prices have been stead
ily rising of late. It Is probable, there
fore, that the net return to the Aus
tralasian sheep farmers this season
will be 2.000.000 to 3.000.000 greater
than last season, so that Increased
value will compensate for diminished
The frozen-meat trade, an adjunct
of the pastoral industry, has been well
maintained, but when the drought is
thoroughly broken the demand for
Sheep for restocking purposes will ad
versely affect the Australian portion
of the frozen-mutton trade for a time,
the New Zealand portion continuing
to progress. The export of frozen beef
from Queensland is likely to Increase,

and 6,000.000 bead of cattle and the
colony containing only about 400,000
Make a Pond. But few farms do not
have a small stream which, if an earth
dam was made, would furnish the
necessary Ice for cooling milk and all
other purposes needed, and would fur
nish sufficient water for stock to carry
over the ordinary summer drouths.
On a small stream, generally dry two
or three months, there are five such
dams within halt a mile, furnishing all
the Ice needed on the farms through
which It runs. Such ponds are ready
for cutting early, there being but lit
tle current All who had such ponds
jlast winter were able to cut over once,
getting In some cases nearly all they
needed, while larger ponds furnished
but little thin Ice. One of the greatest
troubles Is that the bank Is not made
thick enough to withstand the effecU
of frost The banks should be not lesjs
than six or eight feet broad on the
top. and the sooner made and bettei
packed 'by the tramping of the team,
the better for their stability. No stone
work Is advisable, only for the over'

Top Grafting to Insure Fruitage.
Often Isolated fruit trees do not bear
for want of proper pollination. Top
grafting It with scions, cut from good,
healthy, bearing trees, will doubtless
bring It Into bearing. Do the work
about the last week in March. Use
common grafting wax, put It In a tin
cup and bang It over a lantern to keep
the wax warm enough to work nicely
and use It freely. We prefer the side
graft; use a good knife and preparo

sclon wedge shape. Then make an
tlnclslon on upper side of the limb.
Insert the scion nicely and wax freely.
The scion should be cut with two buds
and top slightly waxed. In June the
limb should be cut above the graft In
your tree. We would Insert from
twenty to thirty grafts next spring and
put In more the following spring. Ex.

It has been found that the eWorld's

are the potash salts from Stsssfurt

potash, sulphate of soda, and sul

ashes and cotton-hull ashes are also
sources of potash.
Thinning Orchard Fruits. Whethet
or not it pays to thin the fruit of an
orchard, everyone agrees that with s
few trees it is advantageous to thin
an overburdened crop down to a rea
sonable number of choice fruits. Ir
an experiment reported by the depart
ment of agriculture, thinning was
found to increase the total yield ami
to decrease rot The thinning wai
practiced with apples, peaches an4
plums, early thinning giving the most
practical results. It was concluded
that it pays best to -commence work ol
this kind immediately after the fruit
