STOBY OF SHELL AXSIE.
An Incident of Sherman's Maroh
to the Sea.
Kobody expected Gen. 8herman to
come into Atlanta from the Booth.
Oh, no, in the natural course of
event he most have certainly shoul
dered his way riffht straight on from
the north,' and accordingly the prim
and irrimy, frayed out fragments of
liood'a confederate army wallowed in
the stilling trenches all along the
vast semi-circular line of outworks
that faced the valley of the Chatta
hoochee and commanded the ap
proaches from the AUatoona hills be
Hut he of the eagle eye was a strate
gist, lie wanted. to cot off and coop
up the gray jackets in the city, and for
that reason he quietly marched the
larger part of his army up the west
ern bank of the river eight or ten
miles, flung them across the river, and
with a mighty swing of that ponder
ous trip-hammer of war he struck them
from the south, thus cutting off their
lines of supplies by the Georgia rail
road. Then followed those terrible
days which wound up with the fierce
onslaught of July 32, when the hope
less, .half4ftarvel southern men, the
g&Uant mon of the west, met in a
mighty gladiatorial contest which re
sulted in the fail of Atlanta.
These are matters for the historian,
but what I am going to recount is one
of those wild, weird romances with
which this terrible conflict was so
fraught, and here is the stransre story:
"On to the sea," was the watchword
of Bherman'B armies, and the sullen
and dogged retreat of the confederates
to Jonesboro was. the first movement
of the defeated and despairing confed
Jonesboro was a little inland town,
nestled amid field and forest, inter
spersed with beautiful undulating
hills and grassy valleys green with the
hope of the harvest, but little suited
as a defensive point for the bruised
and battered legions who were recoil
ing slowly toward the southern sea.
Breastworks had been hastily thrown
up flanking the line of the -Central
railroad, and in the ditches behind
them the straggling remnants of obsti
nate confederates were entrenched. .
It was a gloriously beautiful sum
mer day when the skirmish line of the
northern hosts debouched from the
works and took up position in front of
these breastworks.. . -
Taken -by . surprise after relying in
vain on the -ability of the southern
troops to check the onflow of the le
gions of the conquering hosts, the
women and children, led by the lame
and the halt and the aged men of the
country, were fleeing? for life, panic
stricken and utterly demoralized. -
As the sun rose over the swelling
ridges the eyes of the soldiers of either
army caught the gleam of a little
whtle tent, half hidden in a wood just
a little to the left of the lineof attack,
and above it fluttered tiny white flag,
no bigger than a man's band.
It was a woman's handkerchief, and
all the chivalrous feelings of -the
American soldier were aroused as the
grim veterans caught sight of that lit
tle appealing bit of cambric floating
there through the uprising mists of
war. The order was passed -to respect
that flag, and when the great guns ve

As the train slowed up at the little
station a man. apparently hleeaad with
all the activity of youth, bnt bearing
about him that enmistakable air of
maturity that indicates intimate
knowledge of and rough experience
with life, stepped on the platform and
strolled up the hill toward the hotel.
The dusky twilight of the dying
summer day softened the rugged out
lines of the gloomy "yMffltaina, and
the tinkle of a crystal stream nude
music in the thickets below.
Suddenly the stranger wae startled
by a wild cry, and around a turn of
