An Attack That Wholly Demoralized
the Partisan Rangers.
Colonel John, S. Moslij-, commander
of the Partisan rangers, who gave
such dashing service in the southern
cause, told of an amusing Incident la
which he figured.
In the summer of 1SU when General
Phil Sheridan was in the valley of the
Shenandoah he found himself much
harassed by Mosby, who was continu
ally cutting otr his supply trains. An
army cannot light on an empty stom
ach, and Mosby knew It. One bright
morning Mosby heard that a long sup
ply train was winding its wity down
the valley. By noon the rangers in.
their gray uniforms were gathered at
the forks of the vnlley pike, watching
for the head of the wagon train to ap
pear. Presently a cloud of dust was seen
rising far up the road, and as the wind
blow it aside the Confederates caught
sight of a line of men in blue escorting
n caravan of lumbering wagons drawn
by mules Instantly .Mosby gave the
order to run ajlttle howitzer up on the
side of a hill and unlimhcr It. As soon
ns tlie gun had opened lire the rest of
the men were to make a cavalry charge
and throw the train Into confusion.
The rangers jerked the gun into w
sltlon nnd began to swab It out. Sud
denly the man with the swnb gave a
shrill yell, seized the seat or his panta
loons and lied down the hill and out
Into the road. Almost in the same
moment the other man at the gun
abandoned It. He seemed to be light
ing at the air as he disappeared over
a stone wall.
The sutler's wagons were creeping
nearer, and Mosby did not know what
to think of such extraordinary conduct.
He ordered four more men to the gun,
but hardly had they reached it when
they, too, yelled, began to beat the air
madly with their hats and took to
Spurring his horse over the stone
wall, Mosby rode toward the gun, but
his stay was short. The howitzer stood
lust over a hornets' nest, and those
busy Insects were resenting the intru
sion. They had repelled the invaders
on foot, and now they swarmed on
Mosby's horse till the maddened aid
mnl tore off down the pike on n run.
Then they turned their attention to
the rest of the troop.
Their attack was so vicious that the
rangers gave up any lden of standing
by the gun. They scattered far and
wide, and It was an hour before they
returned. When they did the wagon
train had safely vanished In the dis
tance. So the hornets saved the day
for Sheridan. Youth's Companion.
Where Science Fails.
Science has wrought tunny achieve
ments, but It has not cleared up a sin

never were Imagined until science
came. Science has demonstrated that
this oak of a world used to be an
acorn, but how that acorn came into
existence or whence It obtained thu
latent elements that now have become
an oak science has not suggested. Sci

his forest at :.n.r In the morning, to
have them made Into paper at !::tl and
to have them selling on the street as
