Among the mtiny which it was tin
writer's privilege to pop over not lonjj

beautiful than that "Legend of I'roveneo.1' '
which A < leliiide I'roelor has adornud In

and fragrantly blossoming woods whicl :
fiiiiTouMileil it , "Our I/.uly of the Him- '

mil whicl ; bade all the country sh'e ' U
rise , or eat , or i > ray before its shrine In :
passed his vigil ; it strife entered into cot'
tage or village the good abbess listened ,
prayed , and then MUtlnl all dispute ; the
young brought their troubles hero and
went away comforted ; pilgrim and beg'
gar found tood. re.\t anil shelter here ; bill
above all this , the nuns of the eonvenl renowned for Mdll in the healing
Sweetest , merriest and bust beloved
nmou-r them all was bisttu- Angela , tin
"convent child"as they loved to call her ,
for she hud known ifo other home or levi
ur kindred , and had been the child , plaything -
thing , pupil of thu sisters , and tinall.v
one of their number. It was her hand *
that trimmed the altar lump , that were
skilled to trace the finest embroidery and
weave the costliest lace. But her and
dearest care the task she wonll never
miss nor share with others was to weave
fresh garlands every day to place before
the shrine at Mary's feet , for even wintei
has its blo.s-imis in that fair region.
In these simple duties passed many
days of peace ; but at lasteame war < ii
near to the convent gates that the fright-
encd peasants lied within for shelter ,
And one niulit , alter a fierce skirmish , a
straggling band of soldiers brought to
the nuns their wounded and iljing com
rades , for whom they half begged and
half commanded the sisters' care , and
then rode away. Compassion conquered
fear , and tin ; good abbess summoned
every ciistor to "do her part. Even the
youngest had her task , and to Angela
was given the care of a young ; foreign
knight , wiiose wounds were painful but
not dangerous. Day by day sno watched
by his bed , till at last the fever Hod , and
then to miicl his imminence and while
away the hours so tedious to him , shetold
him all her More of legends about the
martyred saints , described the decoration
of the altar at Easier and the pomp with
which they observed the least days , the
only events of the simnlo convent life.
In return the knight tola her of his past
life , the glories of tournament and joust ,
the fair Jadies , noble men and grand
castles he had seen. Angela listened in
ama/.e. Could this be the wicked "world , "
at the very thought of which blio had
been taught to tremble this place of joy
nnil bliss ? She eros = ed herself in fear ,
and yet asked for more and listened still.
The nnsusnecting nuns saw only that
Angela went about her duties as before.
They could not seethe dream of joy that
lilled her heart even when she knelt to
pray , nor guess that the net was being
drawn closer and closer over their dar
ling , At last the convent gate opened
late one night and Angela , forgetful of
her vows to heaven , passed out and lied
with her lover knight.
Alas ! too soon poor Angela a woke from
her dream , and learned how worthless
was the heart for which she had cast a way
nor own , how slight and frail a thing the
love for which she had wrecked her life ,
given till her hope , and bartered heaven.
The noisiest mirth could not drown tlio
whispers of regret in her soul , and a.s
years lied she grow more and more reek-
less , till fair dames drew their robes aside
when she passed , and even tlio humblest
peasant closed his door against her. At
last a yearning stronger than she could
control lilled her heart to sou just once
again thu place that had known her
young and innocent ; to lie once more bo-
noatli the convent roof , and there to die.
And so , weary ami worn , her heart lilled
with and despair , she took tin ;
long southward journey , her strength
growing less day by day as she begged
her way onward from door to door , till
ono morning's dawn hhowed her the expanse -
panso of blue , glittering waters , and tlio
quiet cloister standing as ot yore in the
hawthorn wood. There was no fear llial
any one would know her faoo thorowas
no trace of tlio pure and happy-sonlcd
novice , Angola. She drew near and rang
tlio convent boll. Tlio well-remnmbured
Bound seemed to smite in her heart and
she sank to the groun.l in an agony of
unaccustomed tear.9 , Horangiiishclicckcil
her breath and stopped her hurt , and with
tlio thought , "Can this bo doathY" she
loaned against the convent gate and
Slio heard draw nenr tlio footsteps of
tlio old portress , who asked 1 ho stranger's
wish , and then In pity and sorrow bade
her wait till she could bring thu key to
unbar the gate , lint as she waited two
heard i\ soft voice , nnd looking up bho
saw another self , not as when she had lied
long years before , but n grave , gentle
juul serene woman , whom the outcast
recognised as what she miirlit have boon.
But oven as she gazed a strange radiance
filled till the place , and instead of ( ho
mm stood a liguro with a halo round its
head and n face ot meek tenderness ,
Angela htrovo to speak ami stretched out
her hands , crying ; "Mother of mercy ,
hold me I Help your child ! " Ami Mary
answered :

.lercmiah C. Dayton was llio right Hani
corporal of my company. No wonder hi
\vits on the right llank , for he was bj
long odds the biggest man in tliu regi
nient. There were one or two win
slightly overtopped his six feet throe am
half in Ids stockings , but .they wen
Mrindling , nerveless , narrow-chested fel
lows , whom "Jerrv" could aronni
his thumb if il came to muscle.
Where Jerry hailed from oriirinally ]
never knew. He enlisted in New Yorl
in the sring ) of 181)2 , ami , 1 fancy , hail ni
the time been swaggering about union ;
the Bowery boys and living oil' the ad
mircr.i of his inelVable good nature am'
unparallelled biceps. But I have novel
known to what section is duo the eredii
of raising .so glorious a .specimen of tin
lili.y.-ical man.
Take it all in all. I believe .Jerry Day
Ion was essentially the biggest man 1
oversaw. It was 1 who enlisted him whei
1 was at home in Xew York , during
March , iSti' . ' , thu bearer of certain paper. '
to ( lovernor Morgan ; and when I touli
him to the surgeon for examination I
noted down all his measurements as ti
matter of curiosity. Here they are :
Kound chest , -I8J inches ; round slionl'
dors , . " ) ' . ) inches ; round forearm , II inches :
round biceps. 18. } inches ; round thigh , X
inches ; round calf , 10 inuhes ; weight , lK !
I don't ' think any pn/.o-lightor ever on >
tercd the ring that eouht beat that. Ami
yet .Jerry was not fat. Ho was rather the
opposite. When he was stripped , his
muscles stood out free from adipose
tissue , and showed their play when he
moved like those of a thoroughbred after
traininjr. Added to these , a bull-neel ;
and a good looking , jovial face , hands
like thu paws of n gorilla , but small feet
for his si/.c , enormous length of arm and
n slow , easygoing look , which betokened
mildnors and honesty , and Jerry Uaylon
gave ono the idea of a huge , inoflunsivu
1 have called Jerry's face good-looking.
I'erhaps it was more the good humor
which shone through its every pore from
the amiable soul within Unit gave one
this idea ; for Jerry was llusli ol lace and
fearfully anil wonderfully freckled. He
wore a very small yellow mu-laehe ,
which seemed to be all he could grow ;
for , although ho never shaved , his' face
was destitute of hair save on his tipper
lip. Nature had evidently exhausted
herself in putting together his frame and
had nothinir lett for beard.
Jerry never quarreled with any of his
comrades. Good reason why. 'Jo begin
with , ho was too gentle to 'tyranni/.o or
bully , and altogether too burl > for anyone
ono willingly to come in hostile contact
with. I never know him to bo at odds
with a single soul , lie moved about and
attended to his own business with much
the same kind of consciously superior indifference -
difference that a Newfoundland exhibits
among a pack of terriers. No matter
how much the bovs teamed him ; no mutter
how much thu terriers yelped at his
heels , as , owing to his forbearance , they
were very apt to do ho would for an in
stant look as if hu were on the point of
retaliating ; but then , as if feeliiijr that ho
miiiht do them harm it ho allowed him
self to got angry , ho would check his
rising ire , and smooth down his bristling
crest with a half deprecatory , half threat
ening , "Now , boys , look out , and quit
your t'oolin' ! "
Dayton was a good soldier. To be sure ,
he had not been in action as yet and so
had not had a chance to show his gal
lantry ; but lie was obedient and attentive
lo duty , intoiligenl and upright. Ho
seemed sometimes to dislike to enforce
orders when the men made any objection
or resistance ; but this was only of a piece
with liis own lenient impulses , and never
called for more than a passing criticism.
Take it all in all , ho was on the high road
to success in thu profession of arms ,
though it had been taken up as only a
temporary ono.
Dayton was one of my favorites. Ho
was always willing , nay eager , to bo of
service to mo. Ho would volunteer his
help whenever thuro was any work to bo
done about my quarters ; and , besides his
enormous strength , ho possessed steadi
ness and aptitude at work in no ordinary
degree. Ho was handy , too , in little
things. His thiek , course lingers could
so/.e hold of any little , delicate job as
daintily as if they had boon as taper ns a
woman's. Nor did ho ever seem to weary
in olVering his services. Before I know I
wanted a thing done Jerry would have
started to do it ; and all manner of little
conveniences , such as a sholtorof boughs
in front of my tout , or an oven for my
contraband to bake bread in , or a nice
bunk , or a camp table and chairs , grow
up around mo whenever wo remained a
few days in one place , under the dett
hand and willing heart of Corporal Jerry
As u rule , when men grow to such an
enormous si/.e , they lose in stamina what
they gain in weight. Liltlu or middle-
si/.ud men , say of live foot live to live foot
nine in height nnd weighing 120 to 100
pounds , nro generally able to march
further , cany more weight and live on
shorter commons than men who got bo-
yoiul those limits. The greatest endur
ance 1 have almost invariably been exhib
ited b" smalllsjiaro men n'ot thin men
who ( aok miiEclu , but men whose food
goes lo nourish honu , sinew nnd muscle
instead of turning into fat.
But Corporal Jerry Dayton was nn ex
ception to the rule that sl/.e and endur
ance stand in inverse ratio to each other.
In his case endurunco scorned to have
kept pace with growth , nnd ho and our
petit corporal of the loft llank ( a live foot
two , 115 pounds Rtooimun ] ) vied witli each
other who would first show signs of
tlagging. But there was this diHoronco
botwcon them , that the Brobdinguaglan
could huvo picked the Liliputian up ,
load and all. and have marched olV with
him , while the petit corporal could scarce
have done the same by Jerry.
Often have 1 seen the big corporal witli
a half do/en imiskels and knapsacks
nlnng in vauous fashions about his
brawny person , which ho was carrying
along for some weary comrades , and
laugningat the idea of being overloaded ,
A might man was Coiporal Jerry Day
ton : u mighty man of valor yet untried.
Tlioro were two of his fellow-soldiers
who did not holiavo in Jerry's courage ,
One was Ihc orderly sergeant , an old tol-
dit-r himself , and the other a man who
fipcmcd to have known something of
Jerry's antecedents , though ho never
gave any reason for his opinion Both
acknowledged Dayton's good qualities in
cauip and on tlio march , nut i-
"You keep a goud lookout on him ,
looteiianl , fust squall wo git Inter , an' o
Jerry Dayton don't run , then I'll go bcf
his pardin for tliinkln' so mean on him
Ef Jerry hadn't bj.n iijted he'd ha
k'now'd too much to Iia'coiie nU"lislcd. '

day oiut after Ihc bnsliwliackor *
lieutenant , " said ( he orderly , "but 1 vi
always had n shrewd notion , ytat he wai
lame nearer the region'of ids iTcari tlnii
time. "
All this I of eour e pooh-poohed , and ,
convinced that 1 wn as good a judge oi
the man as any one t Ni , hrtld fast to inj
liking for the corporal. If lie woill dn :

It was at Fair Oaks. Wo had been lim

shattered division , and 1 Was too bus.s t <
keep much of an eve on auv partieiilai
man. 1 had glanced at D.uton several
times , but had noticed notfdng beyond
the paleness of his face , and as pale face1
are not unusual at such times on tin
bravest of men , I paid no heed to that.
Our regimenl and one other , both nn

been iselected to proceed through Whiti
Oak swamp , along an old abandoned road
which Keainey had discovered thai
morning , and take up a position so as tc
tall upon the llank of the rebel advance ,
which , it seemed likely , would nrivi

showed us but lee plainly how our men
were being borne back. And thr rlitn ol
the hurried march gave no time to tin
dead beats and poltroons to skulk out ol
the ranks.
But finally wo reached the edge of tin
swamp , and deployed into line behind n
snaku feneo on the skirts of a wood ,
whoso underbrush .screened u * almost en
tirely from view. Before ns lay an open
clearing about a iiuarlur of 'n mile in
breadth , across which wounded men
limped or were carried to the rear , ami
"demoralized" men wru falling back
out of range Mngly or in squads , and in
which , as it' the rebel artillerints well
knew the location of iho clearinif , shells ,
were exploding and si-alt.Timr . their frag
ments wllli that peculiar musical "ling !
ting ! " so familiar to men who have once
heard it , and ever and anon onu of tlioi !
uncomfortable missiles would whi/ pai
ns , and bo followed by an instantaneous
ducking of the head by every one of our
green recruits. But though 'thistis the
Ijrst time our regiment had boon under
lire , tlie men behaved splendidly. Cast
ing my eye down the linoof my company
1 could see a decided majority of pale
faces , but compressed lips , and not a sign
of wavering , while one or two of the vet
erans or the devil-may-cares would in
dulge in a joke at their neighbor's paler ,
or a sneer at some cowardly fugitive. No
ono had been hit as yet , but the prospect
looked uncomfortably hot.
All this time the infantry lire came
nearer and nearer our retreating line ,
and the advancing rebels , with ever and
anon u taunting yell of defiance , seemed
to be approaching so as to present their
llank as llio.y passed our-position.
This was just what was exported and
de.-ired , as unless they discovered us in
time wo could take them in reverse and
create a diversion in favor of our own
forces , whose commanders had been al
ready notified of our 'intended ' attack ,
and would co-operate with i .
But all this is far fromlliepurpose , and
we will now return to ( Corporal Dayton.
A.s soon as our line was.formed 1 began
pacing in ) and down in rear of my com
pany 1 was in command speaking
words of cncouragomunt'tO'thc men , and
impressina : upon them the necessity of
waiting tor and obeying all orders
promptjyand ollicientlyv'above allthings
cautioning them to reserve.their . lire until
the right moment , whuirthey should receive -
coivo the word.
While thus engaged I turned toward
thu corporal , and noticed that he looked
as if hu were having a c.hill. lie was
shaking as with an ague lit , but each man
was infently watching the panorama be
fore us , and only Ins clo = u neighbors
seemed aware of his condition. But all
at once there was a loud explosion above
our heads , and in thu company on out
right a yawning gap was rent.
"Steady , men , steady ! It's nothing but
a shell ! Close up your ranks"came ! from
the ollicer.5 of the adjoining companies
in as loud a tone as was prudent. And
ono poor fellow lay doubled up on the
ground , while a second was carried to iho
rear. But after the first startled excla
mation never a groan.
This -yas the climax of Jerry's forti
tude. The Goliath turned , and leaving
the ranks ho slnggorod up lo mo. His
face was ashy pale , while lingo drops of
cold sweat stood till ovr it , and ploughed
their way downward through the ilust
and dirt. His frookies stood out upon
hs ; pallid skin almost like spots of blood.
His eyes were staring and purposeless , as
I have seen them in the insane. He was
trembling like an aspen , and the lingo
frame absolutely looked small , so unmis
takable were the signs of the craven
heart within.
"Why , corporal ! what is Iho matter ?
You frightened ! ' Nons-inso ! Move buck
into the ranks , sir ! "
"Oh , lieutenant ! " Ho could scarcely
whisper tlio words , for his month seemed
parched with thirst. " ' 1 Ids is uwful , lieu
tenant ! I can't stand it ; I know 1 can't.
Do send mo to the roar somewhere before
I disgrace myself , " hu mumbled out by
starts , and between thu words lie made
great swallows as if to ehoko down some
thing in his throat , while at every ex
ploding shejl or discharging lieldpioco ho
shuddered like a guilty mini ,
"Nonsense , corporal ! Move back Into
the ranks. Everybody feels so at In-nl.
You'll bo over it in a few minutes , " 1
added , as kindly as 1 know how , for I
could just thun appreciate a part of thu
poor fellow's trepidation.
"Oh , lieutenant. 1 can't ! 1 know I
can't ! " pleaded Jerry. "Do lot mo go
back ! Do lot mo go help that 'ore wounded
man. I can't , indeed I can't , " reiterated
ho. "Oh , my ! "
This last was jerked out by another
shell , and my pout corporal fell out of
the ranks a step or two , witli his arm
shattered and bleeding ; and , holding up
his broken gun In the ntlimvwith a smile
on his faoo , which all the time was twing
ing with tlio pain , he said :
"My nmsket'a gene , lieutenant , and
so's my arm , but 1 guess I'll stay here
with the file colors. "
"Find your way back to the roar , my
boy. Surgeon Colt is not far back. You
can't go on or bo of any use witli that
arm. " Then , turning to Dayton , who
looked helplessly on : "For shame ! " said
1. Move back into tlio ranks , you cow
ard , or your life won't l > u worm a pin's
purchase ! " with an ominous movement
toward my revolver ,
All this time the tiring came closer and
closer , and the stragglers grow in num
ber till Iho groups numbered twenties
and fifties. Itegimunts and brigades
seemed all mixed tipinono-hutorogcncous
mass. Our troops soomcd to bo lighting
with much less regularity than the enemy ,
the rattle of whoso musketry was con
tinuous. But frcsli union regiments wore
coming on the Hold , and n line was being
established facing thu clearing , and al
most connecting with our own , which
promised to make n stand.
But our surprise was not successful.
The regiments of tlio rebel llank became
aware of us before they had fallen into
our trap , and changing front forward
tlioy opened lire. This was our lirst ex
perience in an infantry light , but the men evidently better than Iho shell
ing. N < vole o explosions , no noisu except
a "ohtokl chick ! " as the balls cut through
the leaves beside us , and'these were soon
drowned in the rattlu ot our owu mus
ketry when the order was given to lire.
The men were o busy loading and lirlng
that they had JiUlo leisure to notice the
occasional falling together or dropping
out of a killed or wounded companion ,
i\o inniiT was the rebel lire opened
iiiion IH than it was till up with Jerry ,
lie was right ; lie could not stand it. lie
had moved back into the ranks in obe
dience to my orders , but at the HrMol -
le.V from the rebel line ho seemed to lo e
hiM < M ( < S. He crouched together like a
hare , turned and was creeping to the
rear. But I intercepted him with mj re
volver cocked and pointed.
"Corporal Dayton , your only chance of

cowardice , he cried :
"You've killed me , lieutenant ! > on'vo

No .sooner had he uttered this cry and ,
with the look of a patient brute driven to

enemy , than bin musket fell from his

like a giant of the forest beneath the

round hole , iiierced by a rebel buckshot

after putting on three entities and work

whan that rod-nosed man hove in

to go ahead , nnd so wo uncoupled the
engines , run them on a pidotraok and
waited. My lireman ran down the track ,
spoke to the red-iio > ieil man , and pretty
soon they walked to the roar cud of tlio
train. Of course a crowd of us were
anxious to sec how the train could bo
Marled. Well , sir , that rod-nosed man
stood at the back of the freight tram ,
right in the middle of tlio track , opened
his mouth and '
"Yes , yes , " eagerly exclaimed ( lie re
porter. "What happened then ? "
"Why , ( ho wind blew through Ids
whiskers. "
Thinking that ho hail been gulled , llio
reporter soi/.ed a coupling pin , and was
about to brain the engineer , when llio
latter said :
"Well , after the wind had blown
through his whiskers , that rod-uo od
man blew a good , strong , steady breath
on the hind car Ceo , whillikius ! but
there was a rattling bump and crash ,
ami two seconds later the whole freiirht
train rattled and thundered by us like
