The inventors, always a step ahead of

EPISODE OF THE LATE WAR.
Laet Might of a Southern Soldier on III
"Don't leave mo, captain I Oh, don't
leave nie!"wro the words that came to
me with an agnized shriek from a blood
ing and dying Confederate soldier on
the evening of the groat battle of Mal
vern Hill, July 1, 1803. Ho, a mere
youth of 17 years, lay in a hffip, gasp
ing for the Math which was fast leav
ing him, along with the rays of sun
light, on that sad and memorable day.
I, for whom that piteous cry was meant,
was a staff officer of the brigade to
wh.'oh the Louisiana regimeut, the sol
dier boy's regiment, was attached.
Well mounted, I was galloping back
j across that bloody fluid to report the
duty I had performed when suddenly
arrested in my course by the voioe of
despair and woe, coming from my
stricken comrade. The day was fiiNt
passing away into darkness, a darkness
that seemed to enshroud this valley of
death. The torriflo cannonading on both
sides that bad lasted for hours from the
surrounding hills (Malvern hill being
the central point of attack by the Con
federates) was supplemented by the
booming of artillery and bursting of
shells from the gunboats on tho adja
cent James river.
Nature seemed to revolt at this scene
of blood and carnage. Thunder and
lightning and au avalanche of rain came
in quick succession with such great
force as to cause the stoutest heart to
quake. This great battle was the sev
enth day's fight to capture the city of
Richmond. It was not an ordinary bat
tle, but a demons' fight and the final
encounter between those two giants of
war Robert E. Lee and George B. Mo
Clellan. It gave the laurels of victory
to the southern chieftain, bedewed with
the tears of broken hearts.
Without stopping to consider what I
alone could do for the dying .youth
amid the chaos and increasing darkness
of the night that prevailed, I turned
back and dismounted to keep a lonely
vigil with the dead. My horse, which,
strange to say, had seemed frenzied with
fear, became quiet and tractable as
though he knew there was safety with
his master. I called the boy, who had
swooned away from loss of blood, and
was glad to know he was not dead.
Giving him the bridle of my horse to
hold, I tore the sash from around my
waist to bandage his torn and bleeding
The boy was praying and called down
God's blessing on me. His petition to
heaven seemed to be beard. The storm
of wind and rain, although still high,
was abating. Naught but the mournful
wail of the wind through the surround
ing forest could now be heard. The
great armies that had so lately confront
ed each other in battle array had seem
ingly vanished from the scene. I was
alone on a battlefield with the dead.
Wet and dripping, with the chill of
night upon me, I waited for morning,
and he, too, the brave soldier boy, was
waiting for morning. Oh, God, will it
He clasped my hand with hope and
confidence and seemed to be happy and
without pain. I believed be had gone to
sleep. Morning came, and he was still
asleep asleep to wake no more. Daw

Sir John Fastolf had by his will de
vised his castle, call 3d Cuister, to John
Paeton. As a fortification, it was an
excellent defense against foreign invad
ers, and as a residence it was worthy of
royalty itself. In fact, the Duke of
Gloster, afterward Richard HI, at one
time contemplated making it his abode.
While Paston was trying to establish
his title in the courts the Duke of .Nor
folk purchased a pretended claim to it,
and sought to gain possession by force.
The Pastons did not propose to yield,
though the duke was then probably the
most powerful noble in England, and
John Paston was his liveried servant
Four professional soldiers were sent up
from London to aid in the defense.
They are described as "provyd men,
conning in werr and can wel scbote
both gonnes and crossbowes and devyse
bolwerkys and keep wacche and warde.
They be sadde and wel advysed, saving
on of them, whyebe is ballyd (bald) but
yit he is no brawler. Ye shall fyud them
gentylmanly comfortable fellowes, and
that they dare abyde by thor taklyng."
Young John Paston, aided by these
four and by a handful of personal friends
and followers, held the castle for several
weeks against a siege conducted by the
duke's army of 3,000 men. By the
terms of the final surrender the besieged
were allowed their lives and goods,
horses and harness, and a respite for IS
days, in which to go where they pleased.
They reported that they were forced to
surrender by "lak of vitayl, gonepow
dyr, menys herts and surete of rescue."
Edward IV had refrained from interfer
ing in this extraordinary contest, be
cause the troubles with Warwick were
gathering thickly about him, and the

Smoke and Lightning.
"On the approach of a thunderstorm
French peasants often make up a very
smoky fire," says Industries and Iron,
"in the belief that safety from light
ning is thus assured. By some this is
deemed superstition, but Scbaster shows
that the custom is based on reason inas
much as the smoke acts as a good con
ductor for carrying away the electricity
slowly and safely. He points out that
in 1,000 cases of damage by lightning
6.8 churches and 8. 5 mills have been
struck, while the number of factory
chimneys has only been .8."
"It's so seldom," said Uncle Eben,

The boys and girls of tho present day
who become enthusiastic over some new
sport and boast that their particular
"club" has the very "nowest thing
out" would be surprised if they could
discover how closely ninny of tho old
time pastimes resemble our own.
The Eskimos of the frozen north, tho

and girls of Loudon, of Boston and of
Philadelphia, have ono kindred tie the

ArchuHjlogists have found dolls in
Egyptian pyramids and on prehlstorio
tombs; the uauie of a popular ball club
was fonnd scrawled upon the outer
walls of Pompeiian bouses, and one of
the most exciting matches on record
was the one stubbornly fought between
the rival nines of Montezuma, king of

The boys of ancient Greece and Rome
played at whip top, and quoits, aud
baseball, and pitch penny, and blind
man's buff, and bide and seek, and
jackstonea, and follow my leader, just
as do the boys of today. The girla were I
experts at seesaw, and swinging, and
duncing, and grace hoops, and dice
throwing, aud ball play, and, in Sparta,
even at running, wrestling and leaping.
Tobogganing is as old as ice aud snow,
and when you play at cherry pits you
are only doing what Nero and Coin mo
dus and young Themistoclea did ages
ago in Rome and in Athens.
So, whatever the age or whatever the
clime, boys and girls of the world have
always lived more for play than for
anything else, and however harsh or
bard their surroundings, bowevor stern
or strict their fathers and their mothers,
they always found and always made
the most of the time for play.
Said a critic recently on the subject
of recreation, "The sports of the day are
fast reducing themselves into so many
sciences, overweighted with rule and
restrictions that often take the real pjay
element from them and make them as
unyielding as a problem in algebra. "
There is no fun in making our sport a
matter of life and death. I know grow
ing people who in these days of prize
giving in all manner of games center
their whole desires not on the fun of
the game, but on the prizes offered.
They really seem as much disappointed
if they do not carry off a trophy as if
they had met with some serious loss.
Let us take our fun with a jollity or not
at alL Interest is one thing and irrita
bility is quite another.
We have only to watch the intense
excitement of gome of the amateur play
ers in popular games to realize that the
critic was right about that algebra prob
lem. The complaint of "unfairness" on
one side and of disagreeable, triumph
on another seem to be the most notice
able features at the close of the sports
of today, and we cannot help wonder
ing if this was a feature of the games of
olden times or if in this respect the
young people of the present really
have "something new." Philadelphia

The cover of ouo ismia of tho "Bat

lliiigg's grenadiers wiuuiug the battle
of White Plains, where they won the
minis of the "Slashers," because they
throw away their f lutlocks and carried
an intrtmchiuoui with their short
swords. Tho picture i entitled "The
Blushers at tho Battle of White Plains,
Tho buttle of White Plains was
(ought, as a matter of fact, on Oct 88,
1776. It is stuted in the publication
that Washington gout 8,000 men to oo
oupy a hill above tho fml of the
"Uruux," aud that this positiou was
carried by the "Slashers" with their
swords. It is also said that "soou after
this turning movement General Wash
ingtou, abuudouiug his store, retired
with his army towurd Connecticut"
As a mutter of fact tho positiou re
ferred to was held by 1,400 Americana
under General McDougul and was cur
ried by a British force of 4, 000. Ouo
would think from reading the British
version of the fight that the "Slashers"
whipped tho entire American army.
There were other British regiments en
gaged in tho work of carrying Chatter-
ton hill, aud it is unfair to them to give
all the credit to the "Slashers."
Of what took placo after the position
was carried the version given by The
riavy aud Army Illustrated is deliber
ately misleading. The fuels are that
when the bill was carried General Mo
Dougal retired to Washington's camp
with a loss of 80 prisoners aud 100 kill
ed and wounded. The British lost 219
killed and wounded. Howe did not dure
to attack Washington, but sent for re
enforcements, and on Nov. S moved
bis augmented army to Dobb Ferry.
Washington, being confronted by supe
rior numbers, retired, uot toward Con
necticut but across the Hudsou to New
Jersey on Nov. 8.
When a nation start out to write it
military history aud distort it in some
particulars, it make one doubt tho
truth of all. The troth about the battle
of White Plain would redound just as
much to the glory of tie "Slashers" as
does the perverted account published by

SHADOWING A FOOTBALLER.
The Schema of a Team to Dowa a Hue

Several years ago a youug athleto
named D -was conspicuous as a foot
ball player. He was a swift runner, a
reliable drop kicker and au excellent
all round player. He bad proved such a
tower of strength on bis college eleven
that rival teams feared him, and when
rumors to the effect that be bud received
money for bis service were circulated

ball authorities of an opposing collego
to investigate bis amateur stutus. If he
bad received money, as alleged, be was
no longer an amuteur and could be de
barred from a place on the team.
Accordingly an emissury was dis
patched, with the usual oppressive col
lege secrecy, to the village of S
where the suspected player resided when
at home. The father of D was a
well to do farmer, and the spy, pussing
as a book agent, experienced little difll

"But a fellow as famous as ho is must

with a craftily assumed air of innocence.
"Nope." said the i-mer. "Football

"That's odd," c-tiuued the spy.

SCOTT'S DEAREST WISH.
Froatratvd by the Fatality Attending the
ltoya Who llore Ilia Name.
It was Kir Wultir fccott's dearest
wish to found a house which should
carry ou tho traditions of his greut an
cestors, who were cadets of the Hcotts
of Harden, now represented by Burou
Polwarth. Scott reared Abliotsford ut
enormous cost, but there bis work bo
gun aud ended. His eldest son, who suc
ceeded to the baronetcy, survived him
only IS years and died in 1847, un
married, at tho Cape, aud so the bar
onetcy became extinct. His second sou
died at faroff Toherun, also unmarried.
Bo tho name of Scott wus left to his
daughter Charlotte, who married Lock
hart, the biogruphur of Sir Wulter. Her
son, Wulter bcott Lockhart, adopted the
name of Scott, but, with all the extraor
dinary futality that bad overcome bis
uncles, he, too, died unmarried at the
age of 36, and so the estute passed to
his sister Charlntto, who married J. R.
Hope, Cj. C, a member of the Hopetoon
family, and he, of course, adopted the
nunie Soott. They hud threo children,
but their only sou died in childhood,
and once auiu a woman came to rule.
This was Mary Monica.
In 1874 she married Hon. Joseph
Constable-Maxwell, third son of Lord
Herries, who, as a mutter of course,
adopted the name Scott. They have had
six children, the eldest of whom, Wal
ter Joseph Mux well-Scott, born in 187S,
i in the army. He bus two brothers
and two sisters living. Mary Josephine,
who is married, wus born iu 1876. Thus
it will be seen that the present genera
tion of Scofcts have been in turn Lock
hurts, Hopes uud Maxwells. These ure
all excellent names, with honorable his
tories behind them, and yet, in strict
genealogical sequence, the present gen
