Fortunately, I am not an expert in arms and ammunition, and wouldn't know a dumdum bullet if I saw one. The British rifle with a steel ring attachment on the side was similar to one which I had picked up on a former battlefield for souv- enir purposes the day before, and the bullet was undeniably bob-tailed, and the general was sincere Jn his convic- tion that he "had the goods" on the English; but it was a question for the high court of civilization, advised by a commission of experts. "I think we Germans are almost too good natured in some the general remarked with a twinkle of humor when the conversation drifted around to "Do you know I that there is a regular postal ser- j vice between my trenches and the French At one point they are only about fifty yards apart, and the men send letters, papers, and other things back and forth.

In the summer of 1814 the British government launched against the United States an attack which it was expected would prove decisive. A great fleet and army of over twenty thousand soldiers and sailors was sent to capture New Orleans. Five out of the city Andrew Jackson with an army of Ten- -.essee and Kentucky frontiersmen barred the path of the advancing host. On January 8, the British made a determined assault on the American lines. The issue showed that not even Wellington's veterans fighting in the open could make way against the terrible fire of the frontier riflemen. In a short space of time two thousand British dead and wounded strewed the plain in' front of Jackson's intrenchments, while the American loss was only seventy-one. All too late the news was borne across the ocean that peace had been made at Ghent, Belgium, on December 24, two weeks before the battle. the! nothing half so interesting as fine old patriarch who is its mander-in-chief.

LAMES DIES SUDDENLY AT CHICAGO HOSPITAL John Lang, a pioneer resident of this city and the head of one of its best known families, passed away Monday morning at about two o'clock, aged eightythrce years. Death came at the home of his son, Leonard Lang, on South Cedar street near Bakcrville street. Although he had sustained three strokes of paralysis during the last nine years, none of them left any serious effects, and ne had been up and around almost steadily until a fortnight ago. He ate his Christmas dinner with his children and grand- children but was compelled to take, to his bed the same day, and the end came peacefully on Monday. Mr. Lang was born in Germany, A; ril 22, 84 years ago. He came to this country at the age of thirty years, and it is worth noting that the young lady who a year later became his wife traveled to America in the same narty.
