The buoyant stop of youth has gone.
The falling hair is turning frray,
And time seems now to hurry on
More fleetly tlian in days of yore,
Peforc the heart became its irey,
Hofore 'twas saddened to tiie core,
lie-lore the hair was turning gray.
Yes, turning gray! age comes like snow,
As still, and curves each care-worn line
Its wrinkles on the hrow will grow,
Ihe hair with silvery streaks will shine, I
The eyes their brightness lose, the hand i
(Jrow dry and tremulous and thin ;
For life, alas! is quickly spanned,
And Death its gates soon closes in !
Ah, turning gray! wo fain would hide.
This sign how long wit h t hue we've been ;
Thes; deepened wrinkles side by side
Cut by the sorrows we have seen.
For feeble- beats the heart as years
More thickly cluster on our Lead,
As autumn raindrops hang like tears,
On some fair flower that's nearly dead !
Like perished petals from the flower
Our hopes and wildest jo s are laid,
Horn only for a day r.r hour,
Sweet gambols by the fancy played.
As age comes on, we long tor rest,"
As saints near shrines will long to pray;
But still! we love that timethe best,

3icnioir of General. Custer.
A few days before the graduating
exercises of his class were to take
place, Custer was thrown into the
guard-house by order of the com
mandant for having permitted a tisti
cutt" encounter between two under
class men while he was oilicer of the
day. lie was not permitted to take
part in the graduation ceremonies,
and when his class left the aca..emv
for the regiments to which they were
assigned, he lay in disgrace awaiting
a court martial. This was in June,
lbtil. The war had just begun, and
the armies were organizing. There
was a great want of competent drill
masters, and some one suggested to
Gen. Scott that there was a superior
drillmaster in the guard-house ai
AY est Point.
f-o Young Luster was
sent for, and placed at one of the bar- I
racks near Washington to instruct
the green volunteers in tiie manual
of arms. Just before the battle of
Bull linn, McDowell, who was iu
command of the Army of the Poto
mac, asked for an engineer. Custer
was detailed to act tempo arily in
such a capacity on McDowell's staii,
and took an active part in the battle,
distinguishing himself for hraery,
coolness and eiiiciency, and aiding
materially in the reorganization of
the army afterward. His service
was so important that (lie order for
his court martial was revoked, and
la? was sent into active service with
tho 1 ill. regular cavalry under ?-Ic-Clellan.
It was not difficult in those
days f'M' a young man of his ability,
enterprise ami daring, to rise, and in
lN'o lie found himself a major-general
at the atro of twenty-two.
1 have he:ird from his own lips the
story of his courtship, and it was so
characteri.-tie of the man, so illustra
tive of his eau't-bo-be;.teii disposi io:i
that it must be told. During Ids
al.sence at West Point, his famiiy
moved from Ohio to Monroe, Midi.,
where they now reside, and after one
of his campaigns in Virginia, the
boy-general went home on furlough,
lie was fre-di from some of his raid?.,
and he had already captured more
llags and prisoners than any oilicer
in the war. There was an ovation
for him at his home. The people of
Monroe rejoiced iu his successes
then, as they are mourning for his
fate to-day But there was cum gen
tle maiden in that town, a Miss D.t
con, the daughter of one of his fath-
er'e neighbors, who had no taste for
! soldiers, and who rather frowned
than smiled upon the gallant young
cavalier. As late would have it, Cus
ter was more attracted by her than
by all the other ladies in this new
home he was visiting, for the first
time, and her repulses aggravated
him till his obstinacy was aroused,
and he determined to conquer this
haughty country girl, who refused
to smile with the rest of womankind
upon him. I remember how he de
scribed his feelings; how he proceed
ed in his suit, inquired about and
ascertained the characteristics of the
lady, and how he lesolved to lay c,
deliberate siege for the occupation
of her heart. He called upon her
one day, but the servant w as instruct
ed to ask that Miss Bacon mig t be
excused. He called again, and
caught her at a window unprepared.
Here the siege began ; her aversion
was conquered, and when he went
back to the army in Virginia he took
her with him as his bride. She rode
beside him in all his marches, after
ward, in the war. She dept beside
him many a night when they biv
ouacked with no coverlid but tho
stars; she watched his departure for
many a battle, and welcomed hifi re
turn. She was the patron saint of
his army, and her gentle sympathy
and kindness are remembered by
thousands of soldiers to-day. At
the close of the war she went with
him to Texas, and accompanied him
on several severe campaigns. In
1872 she rode with the regiment from
Texas to Fort Lincoln, Dakota, a
distance of 2,000 miles Custer had
1ii4 fiT1i1f lnf if i u-i(Yl: unra lo-rf
and a character that meets the type
of womanly nobility, puritv and
coodness can encircle in its halo an
object loved, Custer can partake of
her salvation, for she, if a woman
ever did, has plenty of grace to spare.
Liong association with danger, long
experience with the privations and
annoy ancey of a frontier life have
sweetened rather than poisoned her
disposition, and she was as well pre
pared as a wife ever could be for tho j
pain sho is suffering to-day. j
While I was the guest of General '
Custer at Port Lincoln in 1S71, I was ;
witness of an incident that impressed '
rue. I entered his library one even-
ing. and found him sitting on a low
stool by his desk, with a spelling
book in his hand. Before him were
two little girls, one white and tiie
other colored, the children of his
LTjiuu. Apologizing tor my inter-
rnption, I started' to withdraw, when
he cru-tl oul in his hearty way:
"Don't go! Come in and see my
school," ami I found it was his cus
tom daily to spend an hour hearing
the recitations of these children, for
whom at the post there were' no

faculty-of tolling them graphically.

The Ilnssi-Jii Czar.
Everybody remembers the story of
the Ilussian Czar, who, discoursing
to a brother sovereign of the knowl
edge of the virtue of obedience in
Russia, told him hat if he (the
Czar) were to command his general
to jump into iho f,ea from the high
dill' upon which they were standing,
the oHicer would obey. The poten
tate addressed sigr.itied his incredul
ity. "Jump into the sea!" said the
Czar to the general. The latter
obeyed instantly, and was dashed to
pieces on the sea-b.-aten crags below.

ment, a fctory of Russian obedience j

results than this. The Czar Xicli las
once held a re vie i; of his army in
honor of a lady whose beauty had
onarmed mm. JJtiring the mreo,
his cavalry came up ou a trot. The
Czar desiring to improve the efibet.
gave the command to gallop. Rut
the colonel of the regiment who had
not understood the order, eoni i j i i
the tile past on a trot. Nichoia-, ; n
raged, advanced toward him and
shouted, "I say g
road to Siberia!'
and take the
time tiie col
onel understood, and started ou ;
brisk gallop to Siberia. Some mo- j
ments after, the Czar recounted, with i
much hilarity, this eirciiuitaiiee in j
the hearing of tho Luly in uiut.se j
honor the review was held. Si.e was
m'.c!i troubled, and b
lit tears in her ;. e.--., to pardon the
regiment, lie oons used, and dis
patched a squad to call the exiles
back. But the regiment had obeyed
the order ;; well that it was impos
sible to overtake it. Ihe scuad i;t i
out, i f course, continued, ihe pur
suit, and to thto day nothing has
been hoard of the regiment or squad.
Perhaps they were overwhelmed by
Siberian buouv.. Perhapa they per

are galloping yet. Perhaps the story
was a lie.
The Iirst f iraoe-ViJie.
When aechus was a boy, he
journeyed through Hellas, to go to
irasiii; and, an tho way was very
long, he gre.v tired, and fiat down
upon a stano to rest. As he sat there
with his eyes upon the ground, he
saw u little plant springing up be
tween his feet, and. was so m eh
pleased with it that he determined
to take it with him and plant it in
Naxia. He took it up and carried it
away witu him; but as the sun was
very hot lie feared it might withe
before he retched his destination.
He found a bird's skeleton into which
he thrust, the plant, and went on.
But in his hand the plant sprouted
so fast that it sprouted out of tiie
bones above and below. This gave
him fear of its withering, and he cast
about for a remedy. He found a
lion's bone, which was thicker than
the bird's skeleton, and stuck the
skeleton, with the plant in it, into
the bone of the lion. Ere long, how
ever, the plant grew out of the lion's
bone, likewise. Then lu; found the
bone of au ass, larger still than that
of the lion; so lie put the lion's bone,
containing the bird's skeleton and
the plant, into the as's bone, and
thus he made his way to Xaxia.
When about to tet the plant, he
found that the roots had entwined
themselves around the bird's skele
ton, the lion's bone, and the ass's
bone; and, as he could not remove it
without damaging the roots, he
planted it as it was, and it came
speedily, and bore to his great joy
the most delicious grapes, from
which iie made the first wine, and
gave it to men to drink. But behold
a miracle! When men drank of it,
thev first sang like birds; nex", after
drinking a little more, they became
vigorous and gallant like lions; but,
when they drank more still, they be
haved like asses.
DEsntiNG to Make ax Impassion.
Self-importance or, rather, a pie-
j vailing conciousness of self, is the
' most universal hindrance to the at-
f agreeable manners. A
woman of delicate feelings and cul
tivated mind, who goes into com
pany determined to be interested
rathe than to interest, can scarcely
fail to please. We are assured, how
ever, tiiat in this respect there is
something very defective in the
present state of society. All desire
.... ,t-n on nimn'ssinn. none to be
impressed; and thus the social in
tercourse of every day is rendered
wearisome, if not disgusting, by the
constant struggle of contending par
ties to assume the same relative

probable that the "appointments' of
former times, a decanter and a glass,
injured the world less profoundly;
for intemperance has often left the

seems always to drag the mind ami

in full vit;or except vanity. At least
this is true, that ii. temperance is a

The Xew York 7V.TV, Sept. 17th,
coniain.s the following: About two
o'clock yesterday morning a young
man, w hose name is said to ho Wood,
hoitl'ded the iir-t Atlantic Expfo.s
ear on the llud-on Kivcr Baiiroad at
Albany, ami asked the poster for a
1 tdy whom he described, that was on
the car. Tin? stranger said the l.idy
was his wife, aad tint he had come
from Xew York to meet her. The
purler gave the stranger the number
of the lady's berth in the sleeping
car at Plattsbnrg, and ente ring the
car. which was dimly lighted, Wood
groped his way along till he came to
Ihe berth indicated, and drawing the
curtains aside put his hands towards
his wifj. He, however, struck a
man, and the stranger, thinking the
porter might have made a mistake,
hurried back to him and told him
there was a man iu that berth instead
of a woman. The porter said there
was a woman in the berth when lie
left the car, and when the two went
back, the stranger found his wife in
t:.e berth, but it is alleged that, ho
a!-o found Theodore Tilton there.
A sceae followed, the strangerthic.it
euing to shoot Tilton. Mr. Tilton
motioned him away, and excused his
predicament by saying that he had
been very sleepy, and having occa
sion to leave ids berth, on his return
made a mistake. Suddenly the hus
band of the woman struck Tilton a
blow in the face, and then a, brake
man interfered and parted the two
men, and Mr. Tilton got into the : p
per berth, the husband sitting on the
edge of the lower one. All the par
ties concerned came on to this city,
and pnrted nt the (irand Central de
pat; Mr. Wood walking away arm-in-arm
with Ins wif., and Mr. Tilton
it is said, bidding them a polite
"Good morning." A reporter called
upon Mr. Tilton at his residence in
Brooklyn yesterday, and ask d him
if he desired to make any statement
contradictory of the charge made
against him, or explanatory of it.
"1 am very much obliged to yon,"
said Mr. Tilton in reply, "for afford -ing
me an opportunity of speaking,
but I prefer not to speak. I partic
ularly request that you do not make
the sligiitest effort to interview me."

In ihe first days of August there
is a hegira of the townpeople toward
up country farms. It is the month
when school children are every
where, free and when fruits are ripen

the country now resumes his ac
quaintance, to drop it again with
the advent of colder days. Country
relatives are bores in spring, nuis

has been able to rai.se. For real
country pleasure a long, thin walk

you may poke down the few peaches
that the poor, rod -faced woman lias
been watching all summer long and
hoping to brandy for winter use.

An Aid i-Tcbacco Ladies' League.
If theie is nothing new under the
sun, there is a remarkable euort this
year to revive old customs. A lady,
while engaged in passing her time
vigorously doing nothing this sum
mer, conceived the idea of trying to
enlist her sisters in tin organization
for suppressing the use of tobacco
among gentlemen in tiie presenoe of
ladies. She is a well-known society
lady, and had succeeded in stopping
her husband in the use of the weed.
There was no diilieulty in starting it
at Saratoga, and ere 21 hours had
passed, she had the names of 51 la
dies, married and single, who .all
agreed that they would not tolerate
the use of tobacco in any form in
their presence, and that they would
cut the acquaintance of any mascu
line who inflicted it upon them, hus
bands of wives present only excepted.
It was a complete success for about
10 days, when the parties began to
separate. '1 lie new unli tobacco de
eiplo has now set her wits to work to
apply tho same principle to her own
circle of society in New York. She
has already had a meeting of a select
f--w a Iter home, and ha--, been prom
ised the co-operation of a large num
ber of her acquaintances. This is

A Scene in the Senate.
The occasion was ihe trial of the
impeachment of Relknap, one of
whose counsel was addressing the
Senate silting as a Court of Impeach

;.lnglishnie:i and their Manners.
Notice a thiong of persons in any
street, says L. J. Jennings's London
letter, no matter where and it will
be found that they have a rosier,
more cheeful, better-fed appearance
than an average concourse ed' Ameri
cans the people somehow look as if
their food did them good and as if
they found time occasionally to enjoy
themselves. A good-natured set tbey
seeui to be on the whole, although
by no means courteous or polished
in manners. I doubt whether the
English will ever be a polite people
it is not in their biood. When I
see a dozen of them together wheth
er in the country or in town, in a
drawing-room or a theatre, at a club
or a hotel I am always struck by
their rudeness to each other. They
will scarcely answer a question in a
civil manner. They walk into the
coffee room of a hotel, where ladies
are present, with their hats on, and
shout out for and to the waiter in
their loudest and most commanding
tones. They stand all across a door
way, and will not make room for
anybody to pass, and if you enter a
railroad carriage where a few of them
are, they glare at you in a manner
which speedily convinces you that
you have no right there and have
been guilty of an unwarrantable in
trusion. Yet this bearishness is chief
ly on the surface, and underneath
the Englishman is a kindly-hearted,
hospitable sort of a man, although I
must say that he manages to disguise
it pretty thoroughly.
A Tofcmxii Incident. -One day
some men who had been condemned
to hard labor on the public works

The young man said nothing for a
few moments, but soon recovering
himself, he replied:
"My lord, I only followed the dic

convict is my father."
Touched by these words, and ad
miring the nob!e conduct of the
young man. the official hastened to
tell the emperor what had happened.

of the filial act, and gave the con

The Health Board of New York at,
a late meeting adopted the following
report of the Sanitary Committee on.
the prevailing diseases of infants, and
ordered 20,000 published and dis
tributed: Never neglect looseness of tho
bowels in an infant. Consult tho
family or dispensary physician at
once and he will give you rules alout
what it should take and howitshould
be nursed. Keep your rooms as cool
as possible; have them well ventila
ted -and do not allow any bad smells
to come from sinks, garbage-boxes,
gutters, etc., about the house where,
you live. See to your own part be
ing right and complain to the Board
of Health if your neigdbors' houses,
are offensive. When an infant is
cross and irritable in the hot weath
er a trip on the water will do it a
great du al of good, and may prevent
cholera infantum. Do not allow
your children to eat unripe or dried
fruit. An infant under a year old
should not have any fruit exceit by
a physician's orders. In very hot
weather dress your children in thin
clothing and bathe them with cool
water one, two or more times a day.
Children under ten months to a year
do not need anything but the breast
or goo 1 milk. Cow's milk, when
pure, is made like mother's milk by
adding one-third water to two-thirds
milk and warming to blood heat and
a little over one and a quarter ounces
of white sugar to a pint of mixture;
but in the city a good deal of tho
milk has plenty of water and too lit
tle cream. If yon do not nurse tho
child, see that the nursing bottle
tube and mouth-piece are kept in
clean water when not in use. Tho.
addition of a little soda will keep
them from turning sour. If the ba
by does not thrive well on cow's
milk, consult a physician and tako
him seme of the milk you are using.
The other morning as the conduc
