GEN. GRANT'S DRINK.
What He Took When He Was Verj
Thirsty In Camp.
General Grant's personal habits in
the use of liquor have been a matter
of endless assertion and contradiction
chiefly because he was a man of sober
life, who sometimes used whisky
freely, and with such men a single
witness who has seen a drink taken
will color the gossip of a decade with
some story vliich is a concretion of
falsehood about a single grain oi
truth. General Rawlins early saw
that safety in the trials, temptations,
and exposures of camp life lay in
total abstinence, and while he con
trolled the head-quarters mess the
only liquor permitted in the head
quarter's stores was in the staff sur
geon's chest, and precious little of
that. In the campaigning which
stretched from Shiloh on General
Rawlins was relentless on anv evasion
of tills rule. An ollicur of" Gpnoml
Thomas' staff tells a story of a visit to
ncnerai urams Jiead-quarters in the
lield during the Vicksburg campaign,
where he was made at home in the
head-quarters mess. It was a Missis
sippi June, hot and dustv, and he
was surrounded by old West Point
friends; but first the afternoon sup
per, ami then the evening wore away
without word or sign of "how" as
they used to say in the Seventh Cav
alry. At last he ventured on a sug
gestion, a timid, halting remark, to
the surgeon on head-quarter's staff,
who, in a whisper, explained that
General Rawlins was "death on
liquor," but that towards taps the
surgeon's shelter tent held something.
An hour later the officer and the sur
geon were sitting on each side of a
cracker box, which carried a tin cup, a
goblet, and a bottle the one bottle in
head-quarters. There was a gurgling
sound, the aroma of old rvc was on
the air, and outside came a step the
two men looked guiltily at each other;
the flap of the sheltqr tent moved,
the hps of the surgeon shaped the
werds: "It is Rawlins" and the
flap flew back, and Grant himself
stopped half in, reached out without
a word, seized the goblet, emptied it
and retired as silently. "Well, we
are dished," was the comment of the
surgeon; but breakfast found the
general commanding silent and im
perturbable, and the head-quarters
men still dry. Yeaw afterward the
ofheer and General Grant were in the
smoker of a Pullman together. The
latter dropped his cigar straight down,
after a fashion hn Imrl ami oai-a
abruptly: "Do you remember that
drink on the Big Black River?"

According to the story of the re
formed waiter, since the" tip system
l.ecame a recognized part of the do
mestic economy of the American res
taurant, the waiters of the country
have banded themselves into a for
midable alliance, with headquarters
in New York and branches in every
important city throughout the United
States. The object of the alliance is
to encourage the practice of tipping,
first, by means of poor attendance
upon men who do not tip, and, event
ually, in case the customer cannot
be educated up to the practice by
this means, to inflict capital punish
ment upon him. The reformed wait
er's story also throws light upon a
mystery that has been inexplainable.
Men who do not tip have often won
dered why it is that when they go
into a restaurant where they are to
tally unacquainted the servitors af
ford them the same slow and reluct
ant attendance that they receive in
their regular dining room, where
their abstinence is known, while a
habitual tipper is invariably well and
quickly served wherever he mav
breakfast, lunch, or dine. The re
formed waiter explains that the
members of the alliance have a sys
tem by which non-tippers are marked
for identification. A non-tipper, he
explains, is generally marked on the
back as soon as he becomes confirmed
in his evil ways with a spot of soup
or gravy, which is renewed whenever
he wears a new coat. Therefore,
when he goes into a strange dining
room, the waiter, observing the
brand upon him, brings him his soup
cold, keeps him waiting between the
courses, refuses to change an order
without appealing to the head waiter,
and leaves the customer to find his
hat and walking stick by himself
when he has finished his" repast.

"Hamlet' In ArLr.onp.
When they don't like a play in
Arizona, they don't like it no matter
who was its author. A traveling
company recently gave "Hamlet" in
an Arizona town, and the following
notice of the event appeared in the
local paper: "A company of duffers
gave a show last night at Barney
Hill's. They played a dizzy snap
called 'Hamlet.' We never heard of
the drama before and we never want
to see it again. It is the snidest thing
in the way of a show we ever fell up
against. There ain't no horses, sing
ing, fighting or dancing in the whole
blamed shebang. There was a lively
dog fight in the middle of the play
that was a great success. The actors
were not killed, but the duck that
played 'Hamlet' was tarred and
feathered." fNew York Tribune.

Chicago Herald.
Accompanied by the young woman
he had married, he stepped into a
photographer's and drew the artist
aside. He wanted their "pictur's"
taken, but had a special favor to ask.
"Her folks," he exclaimed, "go a
good deal on stvle. They never saw
me and if I send them my face they'll
be dead agin me. I'm a sight better
than I look, and when people come
to know me they vote me a brick.
Now, then, what" do you say? Will
you stand in? She's willing. Those
big whiskers of yours'll take them at
once and create "harmony. You look
like a solid capitalist, and they'd
take me for a petty larceny thief."
Of course the photographer could not
refuse a favor so flatteringly proposed,
and the distant relatives, no doubt, in
due time were gratified with his por
trait side by side with that of the
young lady. Toronto Truth.
"Where have you been at this
time of night?"" demanded Mrs.
Smith of her lord and master, when
tho latter came sneaking home long
after midnight.
"Just been to see a man on busi
ness, dear," replied Smith in a terri
bly self-conscious manner; "hurried
home so fast I'm almost out of
breath."
"Out of breath 1" exclaimed Mrs.
Smith , derisively. "Pity you wasn't."

The Boardlnz-Houso Trinity.
A long-waisted, slab-sided brother,
with rather a clerical air, walked
into a well-known inn on the camp
ground and inquired how much for
table board.
"Six dollars a week your rever
ence." "And how much for dinner?"
"Six dollars."
"What! Thesamu for one meal
as for three?"
"The Identical."
"But will you be kind enough to
explain the apparent inconsistency ?"
"1 will. My friend you are doubt
less familiar with the doctrine of the
trinity?"
"I trust that I am."
"Well, sir, I've had the boarding
house trinity, the great three-meals-in-one
racket, played on me too
many times to get taken in on that
lug any more." And then the jovial
skipper turned to the bystanders
anil told how when Ins first opened
his hotel gaunt women and hollow
legged men used to come there and
engage for dinners only, at half price,
anil get up at nine in the morning
and eat a couple of crackers and
then come in at noon and fill up
like dromedaries with enough to
last till next day. Other folks may
continue to try it on if they want to;

How many women there are of
whom these words are true: "They
feel langnid and tired, hardly able to
bear their weight on their feet, the
bloom all gone from their cheeks, ir

be, nerves all upset, worried with the
children, fretted over little things, a
burden to themselves, and yet with

At the recent reunion of the veter
ans of the Fourth Indiana cavalry at
Indianapolis, Lieutenant Isgrigg, of
the command, who was provost mar
shal at Macon, Georgia, at the time
of the capture of Jefferson Davis, re
lated the circumstances of the capt
ure. He described his participation
in the affair as follews: "I went out
to the line of my jurisdiction to re
ceive Davis. Two miles and a half
from Macon he became my prisoner
and I brought him to tho city-inan
old farm wagon. It was a vehicle
with a great deal to condemn it in
the way of unsightliness. It had
weaknesses all over it, but sufficient
strength to hold Jefferson Davis, mv
self, and his secretary. The rebel
chief sat between us, and over his
head from a pole fixed to the seat,
hung the hoop-skirt, calico wrapper,
and an old straw hood which formed
his disguise when captured."
"So Jeff was disguised?"
"Yes, it's no use to question the
fact. The articles of his costume
hung from that pole. Davis bore
himself with the fortitude of a brave
man in trouble. He was courteous
to me and to the guard; talked
freely on every question but that re
lating to the war."

The Renewal of Vigor.
The mo3t important :tep in this process is
the restoration of the functions of digestion
and assimilation to full aud uninterrupted
exercise, since it Is upon their activity alone
that the system can depend to replenish its
dwindling .store of energy. Among tonics
which the voice of the people and high pro
fessional indorsement npprovo as reliable,
Hostettcr'.s Moinaeh Bitters has long been
recognized as the best. Its properties as a
medicated .stimulant commend tc to all per
sons suffering from the effects of fatigue,
mental or bodily, as an immediate means of
counteracting their effects ; and In cases
where loss of vigor is attributable to such
weakening chronic causes as dyspepsia, af
fections of the kidneys and bladder, and the
iutirmities peculiar to age. It produces per
manently beneficial results. Those twin ob
stacles to health and vigor, ller complaint
and constipation, are also removed by it.
It also prevents and cures malarial disease.
