The reasons for thn may be various,

It was some timo after midnight that I
caw a Confederate cavalryman dashing
uown the opposite side of the creok in
my direction. As ho was opposite,
fired upon the horse, and it fell. The
cavalryman regained his feet in a mo

only reply was a discharge from each
revolver, one bullet inflicting a llesh
wound in my arm. Then 1 let him
havo it full iu the breast. Hn leaped
three foet in tho air and fell with his
face down. I knew that I hail finished
him. I ran and jumped across tho
creok, picked him up and luid him on
his back. The blood was running out
ol bis nose and mouth, and poured in a
torrent from the ragged hole in his
breast. In less time than it tukes to tell
it he was dead, without having said a
word. Then my head began to swim,
and I wag sick at my stomach. I was
overcome by an indescribablo horror of
the deed I had done. I trembled all
over, aud felt as faint and weak as a
kitten. It was with the greatest difll
culty that I managed to get into camp.
There they Jaughod at me, but it was
weeks before my nervous system recov

cavalryman, and the spocter haunted
me like a Nemesis long after I had got

The Portland vase is ono of tho most

but because it is cue of the oldest speci

urn, ten luehes high. Tho ground work
is of blue glass, enameled with white
glass cut in cameo, to represent the
wedding of Thetis and Pelous. It was
mado for the ashes of the Emperor
Alexander Severus, or a relative of his,
and was discovered during the sixteenth
century in rich sarcophagus on Monte
del Grano, where it had been for some
1,300 years. A man named Llovd,
eeking popularity or for love of mis
chief, broke it into bits in 1815 with a
atone; but the pieces were carofullr
collected and cemented togother, and
though the vase still remains in the
museum, it is not shown to the public.

home years ago, before the present
system of water works made it possible
for tho firemen to obtain water for

Another popular cure is the "sweat

St. riopliin. It is a large pillar near
tho left-hand entrance, of a sort of
greenish-white stone. In this, about
the height of a man's head, is a small
hole hardly largo enough to contain the
entire lingers. Through some peculiar
uuturul property of the stone, the inside
of this hole is always covered with a
salty moisture. No' matter how oftou
this is wiped away, it instantly returns,
and this "sweat" of the stone tho Turks
credit with miraculous curative quali
ties. Hundreds come here, it is said,
to rub their diseased members with
tho healing moisture. The graves of

iu lifo had extra luck as "tramplors,"

which sick porsous make pilgrimages in

I heard a good story about one of the
missionaries in a Mexican town. The
reverend gentloman rented as good au
adobe house as there was in the place-
two rooms about twelve by sixteen feot,
lie put a glae I sash in tho aperture
left to admit the light, and w iucli had
hitherto only been protected by a
wooden prating. It was the only glazed
window in the place. He laid down a
cheap carpet on the brick floor. His
callers had never seen a carpet in their
lives. . He covorod the unsightly adobe
walls with a few engravings, and his
wifo made tho rooms pretty with fancy
work, Christinas cards, and those
airy nothings with which a well
bred Amor.cnn la ly would beautify her
home wero it in the heart of a desert.
It was not a particularly luxurious
home, and the missionary with a tinge
of homesickness perhaps, wi oto an ao

dirt floor covered with 80-cent carpet,
through which the dampness would

sionally, and the "jucel" kitchen, built
of upright stakes an I ch'inked with

against tho strange teachings of the

his letter a text to point out a fact or
