The rotundn of the Lnclodo hotel wn
filled this morning to ovotllowing wit
old-time telegraphers. No 0110 is oligi
bio to membership in this organi/.atioi
whoso ncqunintanco with the wires doc
not extend back of the troublous time
when the civil wnr was nt its height
Nona of the old timers are young moii
but many of them nro in thoprimo of life
nnd others have reached the lmlf-wn
Rtation nnd their hoary heads nnd ben
forms indicate that they nro going dowi
Lho hill on the other aide , nnd the hand
that once deftly manipulated the kay
ire too slid nnd foobla to keep pace will
the vigorous young men who nro tnkiti ;
their places. There nro two distinc
organizations represented in the city
iho United States Milltniy Tolegrap !
Corps , which is the smaller body ? an
members of the Old Titno nasociation
nnd their bantjuola nnd programme o
entertainment nro common , but tin
business meetings nro distinct , the Olt
Timers meeting to-day nnd the military
operators to-morrow. The members ol
the two societies spent the morning renewing
nowing acquaintances nnd
of cnrly times in the telegraphing busi <
ness ,
THE riiFsinnNT or Tin : coins -
s Mr. Win. II. Plum , who is nt prcaonl
nn attorney in Chicago , but who wnt
dontilicd with the milltnry Borvico during
hu war , TIe has written n history of the
Tork of telegraph operators during the
wnr , nnd of the first organization of the
corps , nnd probably has taken moro in-
orost than any ono else in the labors foi
recognition of the corps by the federal
government. In n chat with n I'ost-Dis-
latch reporter Mr. Plum gnvo a sketch
if the work of the corps. lioforo thu
ate wnr there had boon but little use of
t telegraphic service of the warand none
n this country , although the telegraph
vns used with oll'ect by Germany , En
gland nnd Franco to some extent nnd in
, desultory mnnner. It remained for
\inurlcati operators to form the first or
ganized corpsand to prove that a regular
rained branch was absolutely essential
o the proper conduct of the operations
of war. The first man to suggest and
iut in operation n plan to make use of
ho wires in nctlvo service was Thomas
Icott , the assistant secretary nf war un-
or Cameron , nnd the president of the
'onnsylvanin railroad. At the breaking
ut of hostilities ho called to Washington
ivo of the most skillful operators on his
oad which formed the nucleus of what
ftorwards became the telegraphic corp ?
f the federal army.
Jon. John 0. Fremont , who was sta-
ionod in St. Louis , called to his aid
JporgoII. Smith , superintendent of the
vires hero , and directed him to form the
> aais of n military telegraphic battalion ,
several companies were enlisted and reg
ularly drilled and these companies built
ho earliest military lines nnd city lines
n and around St. Louis. At this time ,
lao , Anson Stager , superintendent of
ho Western Union nt Cleveland , was
made superintendent for military pur-
loses of all the lines in Ohio , Indiana
ud Illinois nnd in thpsp parts of Kou-
nucky and West Virginia comprised in
lie military division of Con. McOlcllnn.
Vhon it was soon afterwards found
ccossary to have ono head , Mr. Stager
was called to Washington and was
> laced at the head ot the telegraphic war
orvico. This was in November , 1801.
lo remained in charge throughout the
war and was commissioned a brigadier-
general nt its close. No commissions
vero made nt first , but it iras found
iccusaary afterward nnd Con. Stngor was
nado captain. Later lie was comiuiaaionod
oloiibl and his subordinates were com-
uissioned to the rank of captain or ina-
or. Nona but the ollicors had uny mili-
ary Hiatus , the operators being retained
oil the civil list and retired nt the close
v ithout recognition. Thcrorrns in the
orvico altogether nn aggregate force of
,1200 operators and twice as many
milders nnd repairers , who constructed
nd operated thousands of miles uf tele
graph linos.
Every general in the tinny has testi-
iod to the value und brilliancy ot the
olegraphie service and lo the patriotism
nd devotion of the men. As nn illu-
truUon of the responsibility of their
Hiskions it may bo mentioned that the
coya of dispatch ciphers were placed in
lie hands of the operators , and no ono
ho , not oven ollicers , were allowed to
oo . .or handle them. Ono brilliant
chlovoment of the corps was the con
traction and operation of lines in battle ,
o that the dilleront divisions could coin-
kunicata with uach other during an on-
iiKomont. This was frequently done
nd lines wore removed and put up with
very change of the army. The military
olegraphora are almost as full of romin-
scenses of danger and narrow escapes
roni shot and shell as the soldiers. Sov
ral operators were killed at work and
rcquontly in the building and repairing
f lines lives were lost
The organization of the corps was
rat broached in 1881 , at a meeting of
liu old timers , and the first mooting was
eld in 1882 , nt Niagara Falls , with nn
ttendnnco of fifteen members. The
ext mooting was hold nt Chicago last
'oar and the membership now numbers
1J1 men ,
Since the organization of the corps of-
orta have made to obtain suitable recog.
ition from the government as a regular
rm of the military soivice. At the close
f the war the operators , who had been
s much in the military service as the
oldlora , were dismitsed without recogni.
Ion. At the last session of congress a
) ill was introduced for this purpoio , and
10 society moans to push the demand
'or the same rights nnd privileges as sai
lers. It is asked that the operators bo
ccognizod as officers with the rank cor-
oipondlng with the pay , and the build ,
rr nnd repairers ns soldinra. Thu moot-
ng of the corps takes place to.morrow.

Having called the mooting to order the
: hair made an address in which ho said
: hat they were a peculiar fraternity , and
; holr corps was unique. Tholr service
-vns an era in war and the example of
.heir work in the civil war had been
: opiod since by the armies of Europe ,
several members of the corps had died
linco their last mootinn and there wore
nany who wore moro ( load from hard-
ihips endured in the service than alive ,
jeing unable to earn n living or to
ind it was the silence of the iiovorniiiont
> n this subject , the manipulations of un-
ust discriminations as well as a longing
; o renew the friendships of the days that
.ried moil's souls , which occasioned the
organization. A bill had been framed
ind introduced into the house for the ro-
ief of members of the service who had
itillered in the war , and the speaker had
ireparod in support of it a report which
ihowcd that during the war twelve of the
irmy telegraphers were killed , twenty-
.hreu died in the serviceton were wound-
id and Ifi 1 captured. There was no
loubt that many moro tluui the number
nciitloncd died in the service , and prob-
ibly 100 moro were captured , making
.ho IOEHOS of the corps i22 ! , not
lounting deaths occurring out of
.ho service in consequence of diseases
ior.tractcd therein. A history "of the
lithorto unsuccessful effort to secure the
lassago of the bill was a veiy interesting
mrt of the chairman's address. The
Mil stands on the calendar for the next
lossion of congress , end it was hoped
.hat sooner or later , perseverance would
osult in its passage , and themselves and
.heir . comrades , ( toad and living , rocog-
lizod do jure , what , according to Oou.
jlioriiiau , they were do facto , n part of
ho army of the I'nited States in the war
if the rebellion.
The following were elected members

Mr. Ed. Ilosowater , chairman of ( Jio

ho care of the bill in recognition of the
orviccs of the United States military

hewing that they had mot with many
illicultics , but oxpresaing n belief that

Senator Shorinon is just
ono of the finest country residences in
Ohio , at hia homo in Mansfield. It i :
dark red brick of two stories nnd a man
sard roof , finished out with a tower and
many corners. It has roomy porches at
the front nnd side , giving shady seats
nnd beautiful views at all hours of the
Oiy. The windows of the house , built
on the French order , open like doors on
to those porchns , and their ceilings arc
of polished wood. The trimmings of the
house are made of a remarkable stone , a
quantity of which underlies Mr. Sher
man's farm east of the city , 'lhat used
by the senator comes Irom a quarry on
nn adjacent estate. It is a reddish sand
stone , mottled nnd grained with many
dilleront coloreel reins. At sotno places
it looks like a section of knotted , gnarly
wood , and at others like the veins of a
half-rotted stump carefully polished.
The voina nro of dilleront widths and
they wind and twist themselves around
into all conceivable shapes. Now a
number of them will run in parallel
curves , now they twist themselves iuto ai
many rings as the snakes of Lacoou , and
now they stand out in all , directions like
the hair of the Medusa. 'Well trimmed
and polished and cut into beautiful
shapes their color matches well with the
dark rod of the house , and in front ,
where they show out prominently above
the door and hold up the great porch ,
they form n finish moro rich and beauti
ful than any stone that can bo procured
anywhere olso.
The interior of the house , howeverwil1
bo its chief feature. It has many rooms ,
and they are largo , airy nnd high-ceiling-
od. The halls are so wide that a wagon-
load of hay could bo driven through
them. They run through the center of
the house , and arranged with a sort of L
at the back , so that every room on each
floor opens into its respective hall. Thr
carpenters were busy at work hero sovorr
days ago when I paBaed through the
house in company with Senator Sherman.
Wo went together through the throe
stories , carefully stopping up the partial
ly made stairs , stooping low as wo movjd
around through the scaffolding , and going
through n number of largo-windowed
rooms , giving a series of views which ex
tended far and wide over the rich farms
and wooded hills of Ilichland county.
The house itself is situated on some of
the highest ground in the state of Ohio.
It has a largo lawn filled with shrubbery ,
a line orchard and fields surrounding it ,
making up nn estate of about fourteen
acres. It fronts on Market street , the
finest in Mansfield , and is well to the
west of the city. Several of thcso windows
dews overlook the city , and there are
none of them but give beautiful country
views at well.
The largo halls and easy staircases are
finished in beautiful rod-cherry , highly
polished , and in places elegantly carved.
l ach of the rooms is finished in n differ-
3iit kind of choice wood , and each of
; hoin contains n fir jlaco nnd mantle
irimmcd in the same material , The din-
ng-room for instance , is of a rich oak ,
ivith its sideboard to match. Thu kitch-
311 is finished in yellow pinu of a boauti-
'ul grain aud highly polished. The sit-
.ing-room , 1 think , la mottled or bird'c-
> yu poplar , and the library in BOIIIO
nlier rich wood , The shelves of the li
brary are built close up against the wall ,
ind their chief ornamentation is the
> ooks resting upon them. A lirgo libra-
y table aits in the center of thu room ,
uul this to-day was covered with books
ind papers. Before this time , Soritor
Sherman has had his libra'/ the third
itory , but now he has removed it to the
ground floor , putting it In the northeast
iornor of the room adjoining Mrs , Shor
nan'd sitting-Boom , which lies between it
ind the parlor. It is a largo room , well
ightod and aiiy , with several windows
ookingout upon the lawn. Etrery room in
ho house has an electric bell , und nil
ho chambers are furnished with modern
lonvonloncos. It will bo a splendid
> lace for entertaining , and it will con-
iuuo for many years ns ono of the historic
ions of the country. It la n remarkable
louae and Is rich , without being ox-
ravagant or gaudy. That which con-
titutea thu soul of the homo is still to
10 added. Aa yet no curtains have
> eon put up , and the glitter and polish
if furniture nnd brass work are absent ,
n two weeks , however , nil will ba com-
iloto. Thu pictures will bo on the
rails , the fine rugs will partially hide
ho woll'joinod floors , and bright chaud-
llora will throw the1- rays over a
houaand and one tilings which , so much
lore than woodwork and masonry , go to
ell the character of the inner life of a
oiiip or the tastes of its inmates. As it
i , it compares well with the other
oiues of great statesmen. Clay Web-
tor and Calhouu had but ordinary
oiiioa , and Buchanan's Whontlaud , near
mncaator , though located much the
11110 as Senator Shoiman's homo ,
ossessod no elegance worthy of ro-
tark ,

tnin near by. While cutting up a diy
oak ho felt a bite on iho calf of his leg ,
given in the fraction of a second. A mo
ment later ho felt coiling around his bodj
the terrible folds of a boa constrictor. In-
atinctivoly ho leaned hie head over to
ward the wounded leg , and was almost

basilisk eyes that gleamed like fiery
seals in ho head of the serpent. Quickei
than a flash the Indian ducked his head
jnd caught the neck of the reptile in his
tooth , clinging to it with the desperation
of the dying. The hugo serpent lushed
its tail and tried to twist his head tc
bury his fangs in she Indian , but the lat
ter clung on and began to chow away at
the nock of the boa , which is the thin-
neat and softest part of it anatomy. Af
ter chewing for a long time the Indian
succeeded in beheading his antagonist ,
the folds dropped off , and the Indian
ares free.
