Something About tho Fsperlence When
One First Face. It.
There is nothing to correspond with th*
feelings experienced by a soldier under fire.
Take, for instance, the average man, tho
man who is neither very brave nor a great
coward. In all his life he could scarcely
have had any seiisatioii to com|>are with that
of hearing tho ping of th* first bullet of an
approaching fight
There is a spiteful sound as the ball sings
by the ear, or a spitting sound as it cuts a
twig above the soldier s head.
Tiieu there is a disagrwable searching
sound as the shell comes in spirals, as if to
twist itself into bis vitals. No man know
until he bus once been under tire whether be
can dejiend upon himself or not. With the
majority it at once becomes a struggle be­
tween pride, will, a natural desire to stand
up and be a man, and a natural temptatio.
to flinch.
There is a wonderful readjustment of the
standing of officers and men in a command
after the first fight. A number who havi
been regarded the best men lose their high
places ill a twinkling, anil hero and there
some one of whom not ing was expecte-i
steps right up to the front.
Home men who will face any amount'd
musketry tiriug can’t stand the sound of a
shell; and vice vei-sa. It is a mistake to sup
pose that a soldier gets used to ‘ ‘fire'’ by being
exposed in a number of battles. With each
battle he becomes more timid.
Yet veterans are more to be depended
upon tliun raw troo,«. This is partly be
cause they are better disciplined, [lartly lie­
cause they have gone through similar scenes,
and [>artly because they are more reliant on
each other and their officers.
It is true, men will in a measure get us«,
to fire by being long ex|xme<l to it, as a

jot excite anything like she trepidation i
imilar first shot would excite out on an ojiei
field. In other words, they became in i
measure accustomed to Mie bomlm.
Bravery, as it is usually understood, is
largely dependent upon physical conditions,
md is supposed by some physicians to come
from the action of the heart. It is said el
Napoleon I that under the most profound ex­
citement, on the eve of battle, his pulse never
run above some forty to fifty beats to th.
minute, whereas the average pulse of adult,
is about seventy.
Whether bravery is the result of physical
condition or no, it is certain that it is much
■usier for some mon to be brave than others,
iml many hold that all men are cowards at
icart. At any rate Frederick the Great onci

Character of the Cowboy.
There is no eight hour law in cowboy land

»Ives lucky if we get off with much less than
sixteen hours; but the work is done in the
addle, and the men are spurred on all the

tats of daring and skillful horsemanship,
¡'here is very little quarreling or fighting;

urrying dangerous weapons makes cowboys
how far more rough courtesy to each other
nd far less rudeness to strangers than is the
use among, for instance, eastern miners, or

robably result fatally, a man thinks twice
of ore going into it: warlike people or classes

mount of consideration and politeness.
The moral tone of a cow camp, indeed, is
ather hig\ than otherwise. Meann««s.
•owardice and dishonesty are not tolerated.
There is a high regard for truthfulness and

Rooaevelt in The Century.
A Plea for «College Athletic«.
Professor Richards make« a new plea for col­
lege athletics. He argue« that two essentially
new forces are at work in these days, des­
tined to sap the physical strength out of
young men, and thus emasculating charac­
ter. These influences are concentration of
¡xjpulation in cities and the increased de­
mands made by knowledge on brains and
nerves. To show how population is concen­
trating he gives the following figures: In
Yale in 1857, of every 100 students, 21 1-5
came from cities of 30,000 inhabitants or
over. In 1871, of every 100 students, 44 came
from such cities. In 1887, 55 out of every
100. This is a remarkable showing.
But the proportion in Hbeffleld Scientific
school has risen still more rapidly. He main­
tains that the system of athletics in colleges
and elsewhere hel|M to counteract the disin­
tegrating forces of city life, to strengthen
the young men against ill health, against the
forces of low living, and keep them out of
crimes against self and society. It is well
known that l»fwe habits are associated with
local physical disorders, and a course of
physical culture invariably is responded to
by moral gain. It is the one most important
lesson in morals our age has to» learn.—Globe-

“Now, I hardly know how to answer you,”
was the reply, “for you are asking me almost

From these three or four distinct
