JNot in your boots , or mine , I hope ,
good reader , for I don't bcliovo in the
beverage that hatches that kind. But as
the "season" has opened and snakoatorlcs
will bo told by and to the summer board
ers in the country , it la well to knou
something about Satin in ccalos , In the
cold and lofty regions of tbo Oatskllls
poisonous Eorponts are almost unknown.
The hard winters are too ranch for them.
The Btiiped or garter snake , and the
brown water snakes , which hibernate
early and como out only when the days
are long and warm , both harmlesp , are
tha only reptiles aeon In those sections.
Bat in lower altitudes the "rattlor"anc
copperhead , ' the hissing adder and the
horn-tailed snake , the latter scarce but
very deadly , are found In certain sections
of this state.
Much as I have Hunted and fished In al
most all the lakes and trout streamr , and
through the foroata of the elate , 1 never
w but ono horttsiled snake , though
two were killed on the Sohohario crock
year or so ago.
Last spring I waidrlving down the east
brunch of the Delaware , near Margaret-
ville , on a treating expedition , and on a
dngway near the river I checked my
hones as I saw a snake over aix feet long
dart down the bank and across the roac
In front of mo. It went slow enough for
mo to get a good view of it. It bad a
small vicious-looking head , a rather large
body , and was striped in regular black anc
wblto rings the latter I should jadgo to
bo two Inches wide. I held my horses
in , for 1 felt anxiety to ceo a reptile like
that mixed up among their legs. Its tal
came out to a sharp bony point. 1 knew
In an Instant that it was & horn-tall , anc
on describing It to an old citizen in thi
village leatned it bad been seen two o.
three times In the same vicinity. It via
soon after killed , and was the only on
ever heard of in that section. Anotho
was killed on Alder brook , in Ulate
county , the tame seaion. They hav
deadly poison in the horned tail , wh
they strike into a victim.
1 was fishing ono day en the Btaver
kill , and had just thrown a trout out on
the bank that would weigh near a quar
ter of a pound , and slatted out to pick I
upor my basket. Before I reached it
brown water-make , full four f0et long
id that trent crossways In bis month and
ras making off with it pretty fait , when I
raw my revolver and sent a ball through
s neck , which destroyed his appetite
or raw iish. I did not basket the trent ,
None of the water-sn kes of our north-
m streams are venomous , The moccasin
nd cottonmoath ot the southern waters
re as deadly as the rattlesnake , and In
o Tray so chivalrous. The latter almost
nvoriably jjivos warning of Its presence
efore It strikes. Therefore It Is loss tea
a feared than Its almost constant com-
snion , the "pilot" or copperhead ,
utnrnor boarders who chooao cool , lofty ,
nd anti-malarial sections , If they avoid
ad whisky , need have no fear of snakes.

Many ladies who have taken riding
.3sons cannot fall to appreciate the
aluablo Instructions given in the "Book
f the Horao , " which , if follownd , will In
ure easa and grico. The lady who boa
maitered the first lessons In the eqnoa-
rain art and can sit her horse properly
t a walk or show cchool center h then In
position to dooldo whether she will
earn to xula her horse or whether she Is
ontent to pass through Ufa dependent
or her comfort on the temper of her
toed of the c ese , nurse-liko attention of
omo groom or gentleman.
The horsewoman should sit so that the
weight of the body falls exactly in the
ontro of the saddle , without heavily
oaring on the stirrup , able to grasp the
prlght pommel with the rfght knee , and
rass against the "hunting-horn" ' with
.or loft knee , yet not exerting any mns-
nlar action for that purpose. For this
nd the otlrrup leather must bo neither
oo long ncr too short. The Ideal of a
'no horsewoman is to bo erect without
islng rigid , square to the front , and un-
11 qulto nt home In the eaddlo looking
oligionsly between her horse's oars , but
hrown back a little , so as to expand the
best and make a hollow waist , "such as
s observed in waltzing , " but always flext-
ily. On the flexibility of the person
bovo tbo waist and on the firmness bo-
ow all the grace of equestrianism , all the
afoly depends. Nervousness makes both
men and women poke their heads for
ward a stupid trick in a man , unpard-
nablo In a woman. A lady should bond
ike a willow in a storm , alwajs return-
ng to an easy yet nearly upright position ,
'his seat should bo acquired while the
ady'u horse Is led , first by hand , then
witha leading stick and finally with a
unglcg rein , which will tjlvo room for
antering in circles. Bnt where the pu
ll is encumbered with reins , a whip acd
ircctlons for guiding her horse she may
io excused for forgetting all about her
eat or her position. The arms down to
ho elbows should hang loosely near but
not fixed to the sides , and the hands , In
he absence of reins , may rest in front

Vaehlngtou , and nt the latter point they
wcro within speaking distance of the
ickota of the enemy. The Seventeenth
Virginia Infantry , to which tbo writer
elonged , had charge of'tho line In front
EMuneon'a hill , and , springing above
ho mass of intervening forests , tbo white
omo of the cipltol was plainly visible ,
nd seemingly very near , from that olc-
atlon. When the picketing first began ,
nd before the regular cordon won ostab-

were sant down to Falls church , the ro-
orvo being posted In the outskirts of tlio

Now , there Is a splendid apple and

iluusou'a hill , the fruit of which
was only rlpo enough for the
tomachs of school boys and
oldlors , which van a bono of

was between the lines , The conscquenco
was that It became a regular battle
; ronnd , and a number of both eidos In
ho struggle for possession got pains oth-
irwiso than these occasioned by munchi
ng green fruit. I have said in a previ
ous article that this firing on pickets was
Ittlo better than murder , and what ex
cited angry fooling still further was that
-hero were a number of Independent
scouts from the far south , not regularly
connected with any organization , who
voro accustomed to stalk the federal
tickets as a hunter docs a stag , and shoot
.hem down from ambush , Such warfare
md no earthly hearing on the result of
ho campaign , for It was , In the opinion
of the most of us , nothing but nsiasslna-
ion , legalized though It might bo by cir
Gen. Longstroet , In order to put a
stop to this desultory firing , marched out
'rom Fairfax courthouse ono afternoon
pith two regiments of infantry and a
mattery of the Washington artillery , and ,
nklng position In front of Muneon'o hill ,
all oiled the federal pickets from oat the
orchard , advanced bis Infantry and took
loaeotslon of the hill. A line of pickets
was then established to the loft , beyond
Fobroy'a farm , and to the right in front
of and beyond Mason's hill , which was
occupied by the enemy. It was then
strictly enjoined upon the mon not to
answer the fire of the federal picketo
anleas they advanced from their position
to assail our line. After this both sides
quit their foolishness , and the pickets
walked unconcernedly on their polls in
full rifle range without molestation.
About this tlmo a captive baleen was
sent up dally In the direction from us to
wards the Chain bridge , and with a epy-
glnss the aeronaut and his Associates
were plainly in view aa they stood up In
their basket to take up their observations
of our position , for the purpoio , as wo
supposed , of ascertaining our reserve
Force- prior to forcing the picket lino.
Ono day It was seen that the baleen had
broken loose from ita cable , and il
floated about a half mtlo high
er toward oar lines , and was
soon directly above them. The riflemen
began to make n target of the air-ship ,
and Ita governor , findiug things growing
warm , throw over ballast , telescope ,
chair.1 , etc , and immediately roa ? higher.
z'ly the balloou drifted bjckward ana

It would ba finally carried within our
linec , and all the cavalry were put upon
the alerr , but finally it entered a stratum
of air. which wafted It back swiftly tow-
aid tha Potomac , where It descended.
The next c'ay It was at Its old tricks
again. The officer ccmmnndlnp ; the line
then brought up an EapHah Blakely
rifled field piece to Munson'd hill to take
a shot at a balloon , which was not moro
than two and a half miles cd. A hole
was dog In the ground to sink the trail ,
that the gun might bo given a proper ele
vation , and It was carefully sighted. The
first and eoond shots did not seem to
discompose the balloonlets , but tbo tblrt
shot told , for the air-shlp was hastily
drawn down. It wai afterword learned
that the aeronaut , whoso name , I believe ,
was Lowe , declared that the last thol
passed'BO near the basket that ho felt the
wIndago of the ball. No more balloot
ascents were made in front of us , one

A federal force comprising Infantry , ar

was to cut off the pnriulng force from

A Card From P. O. Jlnwcs.
To the Editor of The lice : In Mon
day night's Issue of The Br.o , yon stated
tt substance that " 1 considered mytolf
[ Fronted that it should bo stated , that
Senator Van Wyck had been associated
n any way with mo In the matter of the
Nebraska state claim , " I siid nothing
bat could bo tortured Into any euchcon-
When your paper published oomo tlmo
jgo that Senator Van Wyck hnd secured
o the state about $20,000 ont of thcso
Id Indian hostility claims , and that I
red rendered no service , had no busincis
with this matter , and that our delegation
n congresi should attend to It without
ompcnsation , and when I had a letter
rom the Interior of the state
with a clipping fron a lo-
al paper saying tint the
onator had caused the allowance , then
stated what the senator had done to
siat mo to obtiln a rehearing upon the
Poarman vouchers. " I have had al-
owed for the state up to last December
about § 1,000 ! ) of claims , running from
.801 to 1809 , when the last claim accrued
or which voucher * were Issued by the
state , about $0,000 were suspended , and
iho "Pearman vouchers" were disallowed
secretary of war , Hon. Robert K.
Lincoln. I prepared a now brief , and
ircoented additional oxpartl aflidavlts
yith the request , that the papers bo re
erred to the judge advocate general of
iho army ( Gou. Llobor ) for decision upon
; ho second section of the act Juno 27th.
1882 , as to whether the "Poarman
vouchers" were contemplated and covered
3y that act. When I assisted In prepar
ing that act , I knew of the condition of
the Ncbmka clalms for I have had them
For nearly 15 years , and woo notified that
any ordinary barrister could not dccldo
otherwise than that the disallowed vouch
ers were covered by the act. When I
waa in Washington In May I wanted
aomo ono of influence to present the brief
to the secretary of war. I went to Sena
tor Van Wyck and ho read the brief care
fully , and ho did not tnlnk that I bad
iiroperly sot up the point at Issue , madu
> omo suggestions and that day I corrected
it in accordance with the senator's views.
The next morning I gave him the brioi
and ho presented it to the secretary of
war , with the request aa above stated. It
was referred to the ] ndgo advocate gener
al on tbo 10th of May , on the llth of
May 1 had an interview/with that officer
who said , "Ho would take up the brief at
loon as possible , " after I had explained
the whole case.
This Is the whole transaction eo far ae
Senator Van Wyck is concerned ; . but il
you think that 1 am disposed to ignore
; ho influence and general usefulness cf
Senator Van Wyck to the people of this
otato , I desire that you should undeceive
youreolf. I have bpcn on toims with ev
cry representative of Nebraska in both
sides of the national capital since the
state was admitted Into the union , no
ono of whom wa3 over moro coutteou ? ,
obliging , and moro willing to servo any
public or private interest than Senator
Van Wyck. What ho undertakes to do ,
ho neither neglects an opportunity , nor
docs ho permit a favorabln circumstance
to present Itself without taking advsn
taga of It. I esteem the senator too
highly to have your papsr or any Individ' '
ual undertake to create any other im
pression. In my business he has be on oi
valuable asalelanca to mo , and often
Union has given mo information aboul
locil and general matters which hive
placed mo under obligations to him , anc
abuvo all thlnpa I detest an ingrat ? .
