in March, 1SII4, for seven years for
an indecent assault upon Mrs.
Wyatt, a patient, has b"en pardoned
and is now iu California. The Sa
lem Slateman says: "His pardon
is the result of uniform good conduct
during Incarceration, extra work as
steward of the prison hospital, care
and attendance to patients in the hos
pital and other Influences of a similar
nature. Back of these ie also the very
general understanding that the man's
real offense was somewhat different
from the one charged, and altogether
caused the belief that his punishment
bud been eulih'ient."

Notwithstanding tho fact that th
officers of the American army are the
yery pink of conrtos;-, they sometimes,
in post and garrison life, have very un
pleasant social experiences, says the
Outlook. An officer In a garrison Is as
iipicd quarters, not according to the
necessities of hia family, hut In ac
cordance with hia rank. It therefore
comes about quite frequently, when a
new officer is sent to a post, that there
arc many changes of quarters so as to
mr.!;c room for him. When a new ma
jor arrives, for instance, he selects the
quarters that suit him best, it matters
not who occupies them, provided the
occupant is below him in rank. He
can turn out a major lower on the list
or any captain or lieutenant, and each
of these when dispossessed can choose
for himself what quarters suit him best
If occupied by an inferior in rank. One
move, therefore, may make a dozen
others. The women of the army, it is
said, are greater sticklers for these
rights than the men. But the men
themselves, while preserving all the
forms of highest courtesy, sometimes
push their authority to its fulleat
limits. For instance, at a two-company
post in the west some years ago,
a captain of infantry was in command,
as his commission was of older date
than that of the captain of cavalry also
there. These two captains were
mutually antipathic In their official
intercourse all the forms were ob
served, but still it was plain to all that
they cordiallr disliked each other. One
day the senior captain ordered the
junior to take a file of men to the
forest and cat the firewood needed for
the winter! This duty ordinarily
would have been given to a sergeant or
corporal. The cavalry captain had no
recourse and waa obliged to obey.
Just as he got outside the post the
mail, which came only now and then at
intervals of a week or so, arrived, and
the cavalryman stopped for his letters.
One of these brought him his commis
sion as major. He ut once issued an
order taking command of the post, and
another order assigning the wood-chopping
duty to the late commandant
WHERE WAS EDEN LOCATED?
ehalars of Distinction Do Not Agroo sad
tha Myiteir Bcmalas Unwind.
The location of the earthly paradise,
or Garden of Eden, is still a matter of
dispute among orientalists and Scrip
tural scholars of highest reputation,
says the St Louis Republic. Some
have endeavored to locate it by the
fruits and mineral productions named
in the Biblical descriptions as they ap
pear in the second chapter of Genesis;
others by the rivers mentioned in verses
eleven to fourteen of the above men
tioned chapter. The weight of inves
tigation and tradition incline to an
agreement that the Tigris and the
Euphrates of modern geography are
the third and fourth rivers mentioned
in the Biblical description of the gar
den. Those who agree so far differ
widely aB to what rivers should now ba
regarded as the ancient Pison and
Gihon. The Buddhistic scholars, al
though they reject our Bible in the
greater part, incline to the opinion
that the Pison is the sacred Gangesand
that the Gihon is none other than tha
Nile. As to the last it is altogther
probable that they are correct on that
point because the Biblical account
plainly sayB that Gihon "compasseth
the whole land of Ethiopia." Home in
vestigations affirm that Eden was a spot
of comparatively small area located on
the table lands of what is now Armenia,
from which rise the Tigris and the
Euphrates. A few scholars of distinc
tion argue that the Adamic paradise
was located in Africa, in the vicinity
of the Mountains of the Moon. Still
another school of orientalists locate
the celebrated garden in the vicinity of
the ancient city of Babylon. None
of these theorists have been able
to get the four rivers mentioned
in the Biblical account properly lo
cated; neither have they found a place
where one great river "separates into
four heads." This being the case it is
hardly necessary to add that the ex
act location of Eden is a mystery that
will probably never be solved.
