"I'd never wen you but for liiiu,"wiyn
inyChailie. And if there's a man on
eaith I love, its Hob Hadawav-the dear
est best fellow? We've shared each oth
er's rations and drank from the mimo
canteen many ami many times, and if I
had a brother I eouldu t think more of
"Why didn't you bring him home to
seoyour mother, Charlie?" said 1. "Whv.
I'd love him too, and anything I could
do for him, for the man who saved my
Iio.v'm life, couldn't be enough. Heud for
him, Charlie."
Hut Charlie shook his head and cov
ered his face with his hands,
"Mother," wiid he, "I don't know
whether Hob Hadaway is alive or dead
to-day. While I was still in the rank.i ho '
was taken prisoner; and military prisons
me poor plaeos to live in, mother. I'd
give my right hand to be able to do him
auvk'ood. but I can llnd no truce of him. '
And he has a mother, too, and hIio is so j
fond of him! .She lives ut Greoiibunk
Poor old huly. My dear, good, noble
llob, the preserver of my life!"
And I saw Charlie was nearly crying.
Not to let uh wo tho k-unt, he got up
and went to tho mantelpiece. 1 didii t
look around until I heard a crv-
"Great heavens! What is it?"1'
And 1 turned, and Charlie had the to
bacco pouch tho mini had dropped, in his
"Where did this come from!" Maid he.
"1 feel as though 1 hud seen a ghost. I
gave this to Hob Huduwuv the day he
saved me. We soldiers hud not much to
gie, you know, and hfi vowed never to
pint with it while he lived. How did it
come hero, mother?"
And I fell back in my chair, white uud
cold, and Hiiid I:
"A wandering trump left it here.

Ami Charlie stood staring at me with
clenched bunds; uml said he:
"It was mv ltobl it was my dear old
Hob, wounded uud starving1 My dear
old Hob who saved my life, and vou
have driven him out such a night as tliis,

And Charlie caught up his hat.
"I'll timl him it ho is alive," said he.
"Ob! Hob, my dear friend!"
And then I never saw the girl in such
a taking. Down went Drusilla on her
knees as if she was saying her prayers,
and says she:
"Thank God I dared to do it! "
And says she again to me:
"Oh! aunt, I've been trembling with
fright, not knowing what you'd say to
inc. I took him in the kitchen way. I
couldn't we him go faint and hungry
and wounded, uml I put him in the spare
chamber over the parlor, and I'vo been
frightened all tho while."
"Lord bless you, Drusilla!" onid
"Amen," wild I.
And she, getting bolder, went on:
"And I took him up some hot Hhort
cuke uud upple-HUHH ami tea," said she,
"and 1 took him a caudle, and a hot
brick for his feet, ami 1 told him to eat
uud go to bed in the best chamber, Aunt
Fairfax, with the white counterpane uml
ull, ami I locked him in and put the key
in my pocket, and told him that ho
should have one night's rent, uml that no
one should turn him out unless they
walked over my dend hody."
Ami Drusilla said it like an actress in
u tragedy, and went oil' into hyntorioH the
moment tho wordH were out of hor
mouth. 8ho'd been expecting to bo half
murdered, you know, and Uie girl wan
but sixteen, and always before minded

i mounted artillery, three batteries of
horse artillery, two batteries of foot m
' tillery, one battalion of pioneers ami ono
battalion of military tram. Jn infantry
I and cavalry the Fifteenth is fur stronger
I than the othe army corps, mid it is said
I that its strength in lleld artillery will
, shortly be rained. Alluding to the cav
alry, thecoriespondent of the llrjnlilitr
I FiiiuciiiKe, writing from Strasbourg,
says: in the event ol a moiiilijition, the
cavalry division of the Fifteenth Aimy
, Corps'would furnish a regiment to each of
thedivisiousof that army corps and would
. become nil independent division six regi
! inunts strong. To sum up, tho Alsace
Lorraine Army Corps contains three or
, four regiments of cavalry more than tho
majority of tho army corps in Germany.
1 his special organization is owing to
Htrutegieal considerations, it being
deemed indispensable in the neighbor
hood of our eastern frontier nml the cav
alry division of Luueville to have a large
number of squadrons." It must bo re
membered that the French, in addition
to their nineteen army corps, have half a
dozen independent cavalry divisions,
three of which are iiuartcred at Luue
ville, and the other three at the cam) of
Chalons, which is also not far ftom the
1 frontier. It is interesting to romark that
while the 15th German Army Corps,
' for reasons easily understood, is com
posed of troops drawn from other uriny
1 corns- the 1st, lid, .'Id, fith, 8th, 10th.
l'Jth and 1 1 tit each furnish a regiment of
infantry -the same system holds good in
I France for the Army of Faris, which is
I chielly composed of strong detachments
j drawn from the 2d, Ith ami nth army
corps. It may be added that what is
, called the commandment of Faris con
j hints of an average of 70,000 men. Next
in strength eomes the I Uh nnny corps,

her on the subject, nml as the matter
is a serious one, we ourselves have
looked into the subject for some method
of relief, ana now think we can oiler
the HiitVeriug lady and all others simi

Miiccor. Here is our plan: Let the lady
immediately upon icceiving her paper,
carefully cut from it some item it
mukes no mirtieular diU'erenco what it
is -most any item will do, only let it
bo nently uud carefully removed from
the paper. Then the following pro
ceeding will be sure to ensue: In n few
moments tho neighbor'. bov will come
after the paper, lie will take it home,
uml within three minutes he will
emerge from the house he will Hcoot

By tho time the clipped pnpor bus cir

Not one woman among them ull would
bo ublo to sleep a wink without know

hud the same com so and Himilur results
will follow. In an extremely obstinate
neighborhood these proceedings huve
to be repeated three or four days but
not longer. By this time the lady will
be ublo to read her newspaper in peace,
and the newspaper llnunccs will be tho
gainer in several now subscribers, Tho
rule is infallible, where tho borrowers

The correspondent adds: "Along with
tlii- remarkable development went much
freedom of manners, nml tho result is
that ono hears of the highest iiersonnges
implicated in one story; of a professional
beauty, a countess who married for posi

own; of separations that Kcemod a short

iiusuttlemeut of trust and confidence as
mnkes one fear for what ie called society.

The butcher saw the dog, of course, and
whoever saw a butcher who didn't want
to know all about a dog? "Is that a

he patted the shy canine on tho head.
"Oh, no he's a trick dog," answered
the owner. "Is, eh? What tricks can
he do?" "Oh, a dozen or two. Ho has
one very peculiar trick, though. Would
you like to see him do it?" "I would
that. What is it?" The man directed
the butcher to put a pound of nice beef
steak on a sheet of clean brown pnpor
and place the whole on tho doorstop. Ho

matters very keenly: "Now, Cato, I am

This is tho fenson of tho year in which
the farmer who hns a bearing npplo
orchard can easily have new cider on his
table, nnd inuy experiment with keeping
n few barrels of pure sweet cider through
tho winter. It used to bo said that cider
made in Oregon could not be kept for
any length of time, but this Iioh often
ls-en disproved by our liest cider-makers.
Tho apples grown on our mountains or
foothills make cider which will keep as
keep as
long as any in the world. With proper
care in the manufacture, and choosing
tho variety of apple u good quality of
cider can bo made in all parts of the
Ah for varieties, it must be remember
ed that our range of climates is so great
that the kind of apple which a good cider
maker would choose in one section, might
bo rejected in an adjoining county. The
Baldwin, wherever it grows well and is
fieo from black specks nn tho skin, is
ono of the best of cider apples. Along
the foothills and on the mountain farms
we can mention no better apple, though
tho Smith's Cider nnd Winesap nre of
find quality. Most persona nppear to
prefer a cider made from a red apple. A
rather hard apple, of good and sprightlv
flavor, is to be chosen.
Good cider can only be made by the
upc of clean and bound fruit, such ns
would bo taken to market, though it need
not be quite as large. Fruit when gath
ered from the tree is dusty, nnd if it has
been lying in piles on the ground or in
boxes, it is apt not only to lie dusty, but
also sticky from the few which have de
cayed. AVe have seen apples which were
too much soiled and bruised to be taken
comfortably into the hands, and yet were
ground up into cider. In one memonble
case we know of, a drove of hogs hail,
for several weeks, been in tho orchard,
rooting over and trampling tho piles of
small apples, when it was concluded to
make a few barrels of cider, and the
apples were used for that purpose, with
out 1eing wiped or washed, some went in
tho press being partly decayed. The
Hrst rulo for the manufacture of good
cider must therefore be to Uioroughly as
sort and cleanse tho apples. Let a boy
v ipo tho apples w ith a dry cloth before
they aro ground up.
The old method of using straw in pack
ing the cider-press, is giving place to the
use of hair-cloth or gunny. A sievo of
hair-cloth (not wire), should be placed
over a bucket set beneath the edga of the
press, so that the small bits of apple will
not be left behind. Let the new cider
stand a day in an open vessel and the
pomace will rise to the top, when the
cider must lo drawn off through a small
spigot placed n couple of inches from the
bottom, anil put into clean sweet barrels.
As soon as white bubbles rise to the top,
ruck it oil' again, and this process should
bo repeated three or four times. Then
till the barrel up with cider of the same
character, odd a tumblerful of warm
aweet oil and Iwng it ill! tight. Half a
puunii oi gjiicose, or somewnat lis ol
white sugar, may be added at this stage
of tho progress.
The usual way of preparing clean bar
rels for the reception of eider has been to
burn rags dipped in sulphur inside of
the barrel, covering the bunghole so as
to retain the vapors, and then putting
half a pound of mustard seed tied in
muslin, together with a quarter of a
pound of dissolved isinglass, into the
barrel before it is tilled up with cider.
This has been found to keep cider in good
condition for a long time.
Professional cider-makers in
the Eastern States now use calcium sul
phite (sulphite of lime) instead of mus
tard, and the sulphur apor. They add
from one-eighth to one-fourth of an ounce
of the sulphite to each gallon of eider,
and this presorves its sweetness perfectly,
but the proportions mentioned must not
bo exceeded. After the cider has stood
several days it may be drawn oh" and
bottled. Sulphite of lime costs nbout
fifty cents ier pound. It is a different
article from sulphate of lime, nnd the
two must not be confused. When sweet
cilor is bottled u little cinnamon or
sassafras bark and a drachm of bioarbou
nto of sodu may bo added. This mukes
cider effervesce, but euro must bo taken

X 1'cw.iiN s Wit The cholera, which
has made such havoc dnrihg- Hi ut
twelve mouths, both among the Anglo
Indian troops and their opponents, is an
object of superstitions terror throughout
the whole East. Many of the wilder
triles lMjliero it to le a malignant spirit
attaching itself to tho steps of some man
marked by fate for that purpose, who
carries destruction wherever he goes,
while ho himself is unhurt. This
strange fancy which probably arises
from the fact that tho pestilence has
more than once crossed Western Asia at
a slow and measured rate, as if really
attending the daily march of its supposed
bearer has naturally proved fatal to
many a foreign traveler, in whom popu
lar superstition had seen tho bringer of
the curse. On one occasion, however,
the ready wit of a Russian explorer turn
ed this peril to an actual safeguard. On
reaching the first village beyond the
Persian border, the inhabitants of which
were notorious as brigands, ho boldly
avowed himself as bringer of the cholera.
"See," he cried, holding up a small flaak,
"the cholera spirit is in this flask, and
shall remain there so long as yon treat
mo well; but let one of you offend me in
any way, and I will let ft looso to sweep
you all from the faco of the earth." Tho
terrified Persians fully believing his as
sertion, tried to avert tho threatened
dangor by studied courtesy, providing
him with everything he required, and
uetunlly sending several of their number
with liim ns nu escort, whoso extrava
gant stories spread tho terror of his name
so effectually that he was treated with
the greatest respect so long as ho remain
