".Thompsonville, May 15, 1902. A MEMORIAL DAT FANCY. Bury them under flowers, with wreaths at the feet and head, To these of the dead all honors, for they are the nation's dead, Who sleep with the swords long rusted beside the palsied hands In a world where no word is spoken that man of us understands. Though now and then there's a rustle seems moving among the leaves, A gust of wind in the tree tops or a forest of branches heaves, And. standing here in the shade of shafts of marble and of stone, We start, for our heart is beating, and we know we are not alone— Alone where our dead are lying, alone with a thousand dead, Alone, and these graves around us, each with its pillowed head! There are no dead forever where faith in the dead remains; The blood that has sealed the nation is blood of our living veins. So keep the tryst unbroken that comes as the year rolls 'round And bring your springtime tribute for God's prisoners underground Who peer from the graves to beckon and pluck at our garment's hem. They need us, but, ah, more sorely the nation is needing them 1 How often have I fancied, an idle whim, maybe, But the image is often pictured, and I close my eyes and see Battalions grave and spectral in march and countermarch, And never a word is spoken under the sky's black arch, But, with the old maneuvers, with the old precision, too, March, till the dawning shimmers, the souls of the white review; A common camp in the moonlight, with never a thought to slay In the hearts of the loyal legion or in those of the rebel gray. The fiery souls of the Southland, who drew the sword with Lee, The men of that day's Ulysses and those who marched to the sea, From their unsealed graves in the moon light in the trappings of war come forth, The boys of the cotton country and those of the loyal north, And some who are weak and wounded, who faint in the toilsome way, Seem happy to lean on the helping arm of either the blue or gray, And the angel of peace is smiling, all passionless and white, On the souls of our heroes camping under the stars to-night 1 A STORY OF THE CIVIL WAR. The period, the early part of the Civil war; the scene, one of the stately old homes that have made the Blue Grass state famous for its hospitality; the chief actor, a staunch little rebel, who gloried far more in the fact that in this awful time of war her husband was one of the bravest in Morgan's brave band of rough riders than she did in the knowledge that in the times of peace no other home in all Kentucky -showed more elegance in its appointments than did hers; the exact time, an early morning in the-early summer, when the inhabitants of the town had awakened to find that, although a few hours before they had gone to sleep in Dixie, with "Desha's boys" camped in one of the fine old woodlands just west of them, they had seemed to awaken in Yankeeland, for their streets were -filled with 1,000 bluecoats under Colonel Lan-drum. Coming from her room on the morning in question, with her boy in her arms, Mrs. Peebles met at the door two negro women, their black faces filled with terror and their bodies quivering in an agony of fright. "What is it, mammy? Quick! has anything happened to"— Her mistress's anxiety dispelled her own fright in an instant, and the elder of the two answered: "Mass Jeems? No, chile, bress Gawd, I hopes he an Gin'l Mawgin is still mekin hit wawm fo' de inimy in Ten'see, but dis mawnin' befo I was up Kit come a-reshin to my cabin* an' say de Yankees done got us, an' sbo' 'nuff, Miss Annie, de town's done live wid 'em. Heah, gimme dat chile, honey, kaze youse gwine drap him sho'. Sit down, now, an' don' take on so. I might 'a' knowed you couldn't stan' dis fright. "But what has happened to our boys?" Mrs. Peebles asked, stepping to the door and glancing into the street at the line of soldiers stationed at intervals as far as she could see. "Were many of- them killed?" "What dat you say?" And Easter's face spread into a grin. "Not much am dey killed. Dey done got de news dat Kun'l Landrum comin' wid a big Yankee ahmy, an' dey jes' fol' up dey tents an' lef', an' dey ain't sprecify no regrets, nuther. Dey do say, Miss Annie, dyah a comp'ny brack niggers 'mongst de Yankeey soldiers an' dat we all '11 have to feed de whole kit an' boodle of 'em." The little woman's eyes flashed as she answered: "I for one shall not feed any Yankee soldiers, and you may send for me if any of them come around. Ah, good morning, uncle 1" The last was spoken to a negro soldier who wore the blue uniform and who had come up the walk as she spoke. "Good mawnin', missis. I jes' wants to use yo' saw ef you can lemme have it for a while. We done mawch all night, an' we's mighty tired an' hungry, an' we has to cut some wood fo' de fiahs." "Yes, indeed; „ Of course you can have the .saw," answered Mrs. Peebles quickly. "Bat, show the man where to get the saw, and let him have the wood-horse, too." A suppressed laugh from behind her brought a smile to Mrs. Peebles's face, she turned to the older negro to am sure that negro was HOLDS UP A CONGRESSMAN.-T-" At the end of the campaign," writes Champ Clark, Missouri's brilliant congressman, " from overwork, nervous tension, loss of sleep and constant speaking, I had about utterly collapsed. It seemed that all the organs in my body were out of order, but i three bottles of Electric .Bitters made me 'all right. It's the best all-around medi- ! cine ever sold over a druggist's counter. " Overworked, run down men and weak, sickly women gain splendid health and vitality from Electric Bitters; Try them. Only 50c. Guaranteed by E N Smith, druggist, and W A Metcalf, Hazard-and say: "Mammy, I ten feet high!" "No, Miss Annie, 'twarn't his bein' a big man whut done hit, but you knows you ain' gwine turn no hongry nigger frum yo' do'. 'Tain't in you, an' you can't do hit, even ef you does wanter kaze he got on dem blue clothes." A few days later martial law was declared. What was coming no one knew, and so strict was the surveillance that not one word could be got from the outside world. When the military rule had begun, the supply of food had seemed large enough "to last perhaps six weeks, but at the end of the first month the supplies began to run low, yet neither market gardener nor grocer was allowed to bring food into the town. Evidently the Federals were getting ready for the early ad-vanoe of a Confederate troop, and were using every precaution to prevent the enemy gaining any advantage. One evening during this anxious time, as Mrs. Peebles sat in the twilight crooning a lullaby to her baby boy, Easter came into the room and asked in a low tone: "Am de little lam' asleep, Miss Annie?" "Not quite, mammy," the mother answered and smiled to see the little fellow sit up and hold out his arms to the old nurse, who said: "Dat's right. Come to yo' mammy, honey, an' she'll tell you about Brer Rabbit. Dyah is a Yankee capting in de library, Miss Annie, an' he says he mus' see you, dat dyah some business he mus' talk to you about." When Mrs. Peebles entered the library, the soldier stocd looking at a picture of her husband that hung over the mantel. A sudden fear seized her. Was it Morgan's men whom the Federal had expected, and had a skirmish occurred already? "Oh, sir," she exclaimed, "do you bring me news from my husband?" He was an elderly man, and as he turned and saw the white *face, with its pleading eyes searching his own, he pressed her gently into a large rocker whose arm she had clasped for support, and said rather to himself than to her: "Ah, these women of ours! They suffer at home more than we do in the field." Then to her; "No, I have no news from your husband. Our division is made up entirely of northern men. With whom is your husband?" "You mistook my meaning," she exclaimed, the color creeping back to her face and the old fire awakening within her eyes. "He is not a Union soldier. He is with Morgan's men, but I thought perhaps there had been an engagement and you had come to me, even as he would go to an anxious northern wife. Have you heard from Morgan's men, captain? It is so long since we had any news from outside the town." The pleading in her voice touched him, for he turned to the window and stood looking out into the gathering darkness. When he turned toward her, a tear glistened in his eye. "And so you are a rebel," he said. "It is a pity! A pity, indeed! War is a terrible thing, and we must all suffer while it lasts. I could not even relieve you with an answer about Morgan's men if I knew ever so much about them. Martial law would avail little if we gave away its secrets." Once more Mrs. Peebles' eyes flashed, for had he not spoken as if the pity of the war lay upon the shoulders of the southerners. She straightened herself in her chair and said, coldly: "You wished to speak to me about a matter of business, I believe. May I hear it?" He was a soldier now. "Certainly, madam. It becomes necessary for us to quarter our men upon the citizens for a day, and I must ask you to provide for one company, giving them the noonday meal to-morrow." She opened her lips, but as if he divined that she was about to ask a hard question he continued, "I can only explain that the men are detailed for special duty, and the food must be prepared for them." "But how can I supply food for so many men?" she exclaimed. "You forget that we have been under martial law for weeks, and I have scarcely food for my 6wn family. Besides, why should I cook for men who would shoot down my husband but for lack of the opportunity?" The officer spoke calmly: "I respect your fidelity to your cause, madam, but my men must have food. Our commissary is stationed two doors north of here. Present this order and Something Like It. "Does your son matriculate this year, Mrs. Hammondsme?" "Why, really, I don't know. I ain't heard anything about matriculation, • but he wrote me in his last letter that prepare the food by noon to-morrow.: he had got vaccinated, and it took ter-southern cavalry officer rode by, followed by a bunch of soldiers. Morgan's brigade had come, with all of its fearless enthusiasm. Expected from one point, it had made a detour, divided and entered from three unprotected points. Mrs. Peebles hurried her children and servants to the cellar, and there, with throbbing hearts, they waited. At 2 o'clock in the afternoon there was a lull and by 3 all was quiet. Morgan's men stood in lines along the ctreets, and Cynthiana was in the hands of an army of famished soldiers. Many hands united in giving Uncle Sam's food to the gravcoats, but Mrs. Peebles was not among them. In one of the brightest rooms in her home the gray-haired Federal captain lay, suffering from a bullet wound in the thigh. She had found him lying near her door, antf with her own hands had helped to dress his wound. An hour later a gray-coated cavalryman man was brought in, his left leg shattered below the knee, and as Annie Peebles knelt, sobbing, beside his bed he whispered: "It is nothing to lose a leg, dear. Many a poor fellow has given his life today." A happy smile drove the tears away as she lifted her head to say: "God was good to bring you home for me to care for."—[Sunny South. ever 'was The Deaf Blnte's Story, "The most parthetic story I heard," said Senator Hoar once, told by Professor Gallaudet. The professor had a favorite pupil, a little deaf mute boy, exceptionally bright. Mr. Gallaudet asked him if he knew the story of George Washington and the cherry tree. "With his nimble fingers the little fellow said he did, and then he proceeded to repeat it. The noiseless gesticulations continued until the boy had informed the professor of the elder Washington's discovery of the mutilated tree arid of his quest for the mutilator. " 'When George's father asked him who hacked his favorite cherry tree,' signaled the voiceless child, 'George put his hatchet in his left hand'— " -Stop,' interrupted the professor. 'Where did you get your authority for saying he took the hatchet in his left hand?' " 'Why,' responded the boy, 'he needed his right hand to tell his father that he cut the tree.' " Virus and Venom. The difference between venom and a virus is very marked. Both are poisons and both of organic origin, but a venom is produced in secreting organs, commonly calted poison glands, and is introduced into the system by means especially adapted for the purpose, such as stings or fangs. On the other band, a virus is the result of disease or putrefaction' and generally possesses^ the property of exciting in the system Into which it is introduced the disease which produced the virus. A virus commonly produces little if any local disturbance. A venom generally causes great pain, often severe inflammation and swelling. Venom has a marked local effect. Virus causes a general disturbance of the system. An Odd Habit Among Rooks. Among the odd habits of rooks is the way that members of the same rookery have of intermarrying generation after generation. The males always choose their wives from among their near neighbors, and if one should be so bold as to bring home to his rookery a bride from a distance the other rooks will invariably refuse to receive her and will force the pair to build some way off. In the neighborhood of big rookeries outlying nests of this kind may always be found. Fresh Paint Stains. A fresh paint stain on woolen goods will disappear if rubbed against other woolen goods. For instance, if the stain is on the sleeve of a coat take that garment off and rub the paint against the other sleeve. It will disappear and leave no sign. This is easier than applying turpentine and exactly as efficacious, but it must be done while the paint is still wet. • , Very Legal. "We claim that my client did not run away with the horse, as alleged. The horse was ahead of him all the time, and he simply followed the horse. The Prosecuting Attorney—It amounts to the same thing. He .was the accessory after the fact. He is old enough to know better than to follow a bad example.— Boston Transcript. Good night.' He was gone, and she, knowing enough . of the power of an occupying army to f rebel no further, went to the kitchen to give the necessary orders. - At noon on the morrow great platters stood heaped with juicy slices of boiled ham, kettles and baskets steamed with beans and rice, baskets were ready filled with delicious southern biscuit, and in the'oven the last pan of corn bread was taking on a delicate brown. But no soldiers appeared, and in the distance the popping of rifles and the boom of cannon could be heard. Plainly the Confederates had come up and a battle was on. . In every house women were busy tearing old linen and cotton into lints and bandages. The firing drew nearer, and presently a F.TTRW. A DROWNING MAN.--" Five years ago a disease the doctors called dyspepsia took such hold of me that I could scarcely gp," writes Geo S Marsh, well-known attorney at Nocona, Tex. '' I took quantities of pepsin and other medicines but nothing helped me. As a drowning man grabs at a straw I grabbed at Kodol. I felt an improvement at once and after a few bottles am sound and well." Kodol is the only preparation which exactly reproduces the natural digestive juices and consequently is the only one which digests any good food and cures any-form of stomaoh trouble.

Glass in fabric is so beautiful that even grotesque designs cannot entirely rob it of charm; hence the "fantasies in glass" come fitly into collections. Among foreign bottle curios are found Buddha bottles, dragons, sea horses, ships, gondolas, fountains, violins, whales and lion bottles; bottles with horizontal stories or perpendicular divisions and glass jugs with horns or whistles in the handles. American curio bottles show a wide but more practical range, expressing national jocosity in such shapes as cigars, .pistols, monuments, eggs, boxing gloves, birdcages, canteens, lanterns, scallop shells, shoes, slippers, roller skates, barrels, castles, snails, birch bark logs, cones, pyramids, figures of Uncle Sam, Santa Claus and the like.—Century. Criticising a Portrait. Walter Dean, Sr., once hired an artist to paint his portrait, with the stipula tion that the picture would not be accepted and paid for unless it looked like himself. When the portrait was completed, it was sent to Mr. Dean, who did not recognize himself and absolutely refused to pay the painter. The painter sued, and Joe Strong, the artist, was called in to give an expert opinion. "You see the portrait of Mr. Dean?" the lawyer asked. "No," said Mr. Strong, "I do not." "There it is," said the lawyer, pointing to the big canvas. "I don't call that a portrait. I call that a map of Mr. Dean," said Mr. Strong. 'Twas Easier. "So you are going to Europe?" "I am," answered the young man. "Why don't you stay here in America, where there are so many opportunities to make a fortune?" "Well, I've concluded that the other side is easier. Of course you can make a fortune if you will stay and work for it, but people are always more liberal when they are away from home. I have concluded that it is much easier to go over there and let the other Americans bring it to me."—Washington Star. Valuable Advice. Young Lady—A friend of mine is engaged to a man, and now he refuses to marry her. What would you advise her to do? Old Lawyer—Is the man wealthy? Young Lady—No. He hasn't a shilling. Old Lawyer—Then I'd advise her to write him a nice letter of thanks.— London Telegraph. Splinters. Thorns and splinters finding their way under the skin frequently give considerable pain. If they cannot be immediately extracted, for which purpose a new needle will be found in most cases a suflirtent siirgicalr^^teum^p|, the part should be bathed with hot water. In event of inflammation the steam of hot water should be applied. To Wash It Out. "Yes," said the aristocrat, "1 was indignant, and I wrote him that the clandestine marriage of our son to his daughter was a blot on the family scutcheon, and his only reply was to send me an advertisement of a new brand of soap he is just putting on the market." Clonds on the Horizon. "Old Multimillion is afraid that some day he may be poor." "What gives him that idea?" "His daughters' husbands."—Puck. Water sufficient to cover one acre one inch deep will weigh 101 tons. A young woman of Paris found herself in an embarrassing position a few weeks ago, when she wanted to be married. By a strange mistake an error in her sex had been made in the city's birth register, and she discovered that the police, believing her to be a boy, had a warrant for her arrest for .not presenting herself for military service. She will now have to prove her identity, and it will take about six months to rectify matters so that the marriage may take place.
