Cyril clerics # had lived Loup enough in the world to grow weary of his life. And yet he was Only in his 28th year. came from the door of a London clubhouse one dreary Dull november morning at 2 of clock a ruined Man. In the Short space of four years he had gambled away his Patrimony and As he now loitered on the Damp pavement he glanced up at the windows of the House he had just quilted with his heart a to Kening within him. had gone through every phase of what men term Quot life a and had at last come to the end of his tether. had one relative a Clergyman his Mother s brother living in a Village nestling Down in a hollow on the outskirts of Salisbury Plain. There was a Charm even in the name of the Village Clink on St. Michael so and it was a Lovely spot the sweetest freshest brightest in All England. would make an Appeal to Rev. Sylvester Thornton. If he refused there was the final alternative namely to blow oat his own brains at Clink on St. Michael she would be sure of decent obsequies and then of there is life beyond this life he would rest contentedly in the grave. Two men strangers to each other were Bent on the same journey London to Salisbury by the southwestern railway via Basingstoke and Andover. At that time the line after branching off two Miles beyond Basingstoke was what is technically called a a single that is. It consisted of one set of rails Only for both up Ana Down trams consequently the trains had to pass each other at certain stations specially indicated for that purpose in the company a instructions to their servants. The train by which these two men travelled was the 5.10p. In. From London. One Man was Cyril Claridge the other was a Man near 60 years of age. They were first class passengers Claridge with a single journey ticket the stranger with a double journey ticket. It was in november and the Day in London had been humid and the atmosphere heavy. A thick fog had fallen Over the country. This was particularly noticeable at Basingstoke and As the train proceeded on its Way towards Andover the fog became More dense. The fellow travellers had not spoken to. Each other but had sat in silence in oppo site Comers of the carnage As far apart As possible. Cyril Claridge was the first to speak. They had travelled 60 Miles without a word having passed Between them and he began to find the silence irksome. Quot it is fearfully foggy a he remarked turning his face towards the other Man. The Man sat motionless and made no comment. Claridge coughed loudly but that elicited no reply or attention. Claridge arose from his seat and leaned Over the Man. Peering into his face. The Many a eyes were partly open. Claridge called to him loudly. No response. put his hand on the Many a forehead it was cold. I listened with his ear close to the Many a face for his breathing but the Man respire not. pulled the Many a overcoat aside and placed his hand on the Region of the Many a heart it had ceased to beat. A my god a he cried a the Man is dead a the Many a life had passed away in silence so it seemed to Claridge. found it hard to believe this. Again he placed his hand near the Many a heart so As to assure himself that life was extinct. As he pressed his hand to the Many a Side he Felt some substance near the Maui a body. unbuttoned the Many a Waistcoat and again put his hand Over the Many a heart. A dead a said Claridge Quot beyond As the Waistcoat Lay Back Claridet perceived a pocket in its lining. Well knew i for what purpose men had those pockets i made men like himself betting men and gamblers carry their Bank notes in those a pockets. There was a Roll of Bank notes in the dead Many a pocket nearly As thick As Claridge could encircle with the thumb and forefinger of his right hand. There Lay the notes staring Cyril As it were full in the Lac Money argued Cyril to a dead Man is useless. The temptation to appropriate the notes was great it came at a moment when Cyril was desperate at a moment when he was on the verge of despair. The Gambler usurped the finer instincts Elbe Man and Cyril yielded to temptation i thrust the notes into his own pocket toned together the dead Many a Waistcoat and readjusted hib coat. A to what station is the Man going a varied Cyril. In the Small outside pocket of the Many a overcoat he found a return ticket London and Salisbury. Cyril was also bound for Salisbury but he had no wish to to found in a Carriage where Rode a dead traveller. Tire train was now approaching Andover. Cyril opened the Carriage window and looked out. The fog was dense and the bight pitchy dark. Bang bang came two loud reports. Claridge jumped from his seat thinking something infernal had happened. A Only fog signals a he cried after a moment s reflection. The train slowly crawled into Andover station. It had barely come to a standstill Ere another tra Ltd an a journey one from Salisbury arrived consequently two trains were at the station ranged alongside each other. And now a wild and desperate idea entered the head of Claridge. Was it possible to convey this dead traveller into a Carriage of the up train he Woald try. Andover station was almost in total darkness owing to the fog and inefficient lighting. The few lamps on the station Walls burned Oil dimly and Claridge a Carriage was near the far end of the platform away from All lamps whatever. Claridge covered the Carriage windows nearest the platform with the blinds. Then he opened the offside door of the Carriage for a moment stood on the footboard outside and then stepped across to the footboard of a Carriage on the up train. It was a first class Carriage and the compartment was empty. took the dead travellers ticket from his pocket Tore the ticket in halves replacing the up Toumey half Only and putting the Lown Toumey half into his own pocket. Claridge lifted the dead traveller in his gins hoisted the body Over his shoulder managed to step safely from the footboard i erne train to the other deposited his ghastly Burden in one Corner of the Carriage on the up train returned for the dead travellers bag which he placed on the seat near the body. This was All accomplished in less than three minutes. Claridge Strain moved Onward As he stepped from Oue footboard to the other. Chapter in on his arrival at Salisbury Cyril Claridge gave the collector the Down half of the dead Man s ticket retaining Possession of his own single Toumey ticket. walked out of the station carrying his begin Bis hand and proceeded direct to the White Hart hotel where he dined and afterwards slept. arrived at Clink on St. Michael a in a by Gad buoyant Frame of mind and was coldly received by or. Thornton. decided to broach the subject of his visit without delay. To would ignore the Bank notes now lying in his pocket and proceed As if to were As poverty stricken As when he started from London. Quot Uncle a he said amt his voice was tremulous for he really Felt the part he was enacting a i have reached Tho end of my career at last. I am a ruined Man a Quot ruination a remarked or. Thornton Quot is the last stage of the rakes Progress. Nothing new in a i came away from London almost penniless having barely sufficient to pay my fare Down to it is a pity a said or. Thornton Quot that you spent your last half Sovereign in railway travelling. It would have been Wiser had you advertised in the London papers for Quot what kind of employment a asked Claridge. Quot i cannot advise Yon a replied or. Thornton coldly. Quot can you assist me a Quot no a cried or. Thornton Curtly. Quot then you would stand by passively and allow your own Nephew your Sisters son to die in a ditch a Quot you have gone to the dogs by a Road of your own choosing. A ditch appeared to be the goal you aimed at therefore done to be surprised at your own a i came Down purposely to solicit assistance from you. In the event of your refusal i determined to put an end to my life. I could not contemplate without a shudder the notion of my own funeral in London. To be buried without a Friend without kith or Kin following me to the grave seemed to me Bat one step removed from a paupers lot and the Bare possibility of it made me shudder Quot Quot very Well a replied or. Thornton Quot done to fret on that score. I will Bury you decently and will for once consent to forego the usual burial fees. Our churchyard is As Sweet a spot As a Man could wish to choose for his final resting Quot you Are uncharitable a cried Cyril Claridge. Quot you preach one doctrine but practice a that slur a retorted or. Thornton a is As old As the Hills and is invariably the cry of the weak minded. I cannot instill Wisdom into the brain of a fool. You have drank of the wine of Folly mis called pleasure not being Content with the sparkling liquid you have wallowed in the Dregs until you Are sick at heart. The real joyousness of life was within your reach you possessed youth health and wealth All that makes life delightful might have been yours the pure love of woman books pictures music the Ever resounding sea the Blue sky of heaven the song of Birds the Green country the Flowers of the Earth All All were within your reach. You have cast All to the winds and what have you received in Exchange the shouts of Tho betting ring the rattle of the Dice the gleam of the cards the false smiles of painted women a a no More no More a cried Cyril rising to his feet. turned his head aside covering his face with both hands. A we Are simple Folk Down Here a said or. Thornton. A a we Dine at 1.80 sit Down with us a it was on a monday afternoon that Cyril Claridge left London. On the tuesday morning he walked from Salisbury to Clink on St. Michael a. On the wednesday he was still a guest at his uncles House feeling Loath to leave the quiet vicarage. The London morning papers do not reach Clink on until mid Day. When wednesdays papers came to hand in that Remote and peaceful vicarage they contained one item of intelligence which considerably startled Cyril Claridge. It was headed of Prakob occur Reck. On the arrival at Waterloo terminus of the up train from Salisbury due in London at 9.40 p. Rn., on monday last a gentleman was discovered in a to ratchets compartment apparently dead. was sitting Back in one Comer of the Carriage with his leather bag by his Side. The tickets As usual were collected at Vauxhall station but when the collector came to this Carriage he failed to obtain any response from los Soli Tai y occupant. The guard had no recollection of having seen the gentleman get into the train or of having observed him during the journey. The chief inspector at Waterloo found the return half of bucket of that Day s Date in a pocket of the gentleman a overcoat and on close examination of the gentleman himself the inspector pronounced him to be dead. The company a medical Man or. Deal so was immediately sent for. The doctor had the body removed to a room adjoin Long the general offices where he made a most minute and careful examination. The Man was dead apparently the action of the heart and respiration had leased. But there were some symptoms discernible Only to the experienced Eye of the doctor that made him hesitate to pronounce the awful dictum that life was extinct. A in my opinion a said , Quot this Man is in a a fire was lighted in the room a Couch and cushions provided and the doctors assistant sent for. So that the patient might be watched the Long night through. Papers found in the pockets of the unfortunate gentleman disclosed the fact that he is or. Homing a Well known bookmaker a member of Tattersall and an owner of race horses trained in William Days stable at woo Yeates near Salisbury. Now comes the strangest part of the Story. Or. Deal so a surmise proved Correct or. Homing was in a death trance when he arrived at Waterloo station hut whether the insensibility was brought about by some unfathomable Law of nature or by artificial Means it is impossible for us to say. Or. Homing returned to consciousness at 7 of Olock last evening. Or. Deal so was present at the time and Baa enjoined that his patient for the present be kept in the strictest quietude. The above item of news was the Harbinger of dismay and consternation to Cyril Claridge. hastily left Clink on returning to London by the great Western railway consequently by a different route to that by which he had travelled Down. When thursday morning came Claridge eagerly seized his paper and his Frame trembled As he read As follows tue ra1lwat mystery. This remarkable affair has assumed a fresh phase. Or. Homing proceeded direct from Tattersall on monday last to the southwestern terminus Waterloo Road. At that time or. Homing had Bank notes in his Possession to the extent of �600 or �600. took a first class return ticket London to Salisbury entered a first class compartment wherein was Only one other passenger a Man about 30 years of age As described by sir. Homing. Or. Homing imagines that he must have fallen asleep soon after the departure of the train. is positive that he never reached Salisbury and How he came to be in an up train he cannot say. It was at first conjectured id est on hearing or. Homing a extraordinary statement that the poor gentleman was Labouring under hallucinations but it can be proved beyond the Shadow of a doubt that he had the Bank notes in his Possession when he left London on monday afternoon. still asserts that he travelled from London by the 5.10 p. In. Train on monday with a return ticket for Salisbury Aud it is certain that he returned to London by the train arriving at Waterloo at 9.40 p. In. The same night with Only the return half of the ticket in his Possession and minus All his Bank notes. The Down journey half of his ticket was duly collected at Salisbury but the train by which or. Homing returned to London leaves Salisbury before the 6.10 p. In. Down train from Waterloo arrives at that station i Here is an inexplicable mystery for the curious to unravel. The Bank notes Are the Only thing lost or stolen for neither or. Homing a Gold watch and Chain nor the Loose Cash in his pockets were interfered with and yet the watch and Chain alone Are valued at 60 guineas. There is still another strange incident in connection with this mystery Only two tickets were issued at Waterloo terminus for Salisbury by the 6.10 p. In. Train on monday namely a double journey and a Tingle ticket. The double journey ticket was or. Homing a and both halves have been collected but the single journey ticket cannot be traced who holds the single journey and what has become of the Bank notes and How did or. Homing get from the Down into the up train to be continued. Had heard of Cleveland. Simon Stevens relates an anecdote to the sex president. Tile Case of Langdon against the mayor having been referred Back to sex president Cleveland As referee to take further testimony As to the value of wharf property on the North River came up Tho other Day and the venerable Robert Emmett chief counsel for plaintiffs called or.

R. G. Dun amp co. Report on the condition of Trode just now. New York. March 20. A r. G. Dun amp weekly review of Trade says there Awe some indications of slackening Trade. At the West cold and unfavourable weather and Tho bad condition of the Conn. Try roads affect collections and the apparent change May be Only temporary. At the South the Low Price of Cotton is Felt though a Little improvement has occurred in the past two weeks. At Eastern cities and to some extent throughout the country uncertainty As to the monetary future checks operations but the a is found in almost All quarters a feeling of Confidence and. Hopefulness As to the future. Though the present effect of Short crops is Felt in the Northwest the Prospect for the coming season is exceptionally Bright and while in some of the chief manufactures the operations Are checked by uncertainty regarding prices it May be expected that the relations Between materials and finished products will soon be adjusted to Tho new conditions. The constant and rapid growth of the country supplies a lifting Force which helps business Over almost every obstacle. Much of the difficulty apparent in Money and other markets is due to the very rapid expansion of Many industries. 8ales of Wool at Boston new York and Philadelphia this year thus far show an increase Over last year of 20 per cent., and still continue Large. The dress goods makers have closed the most prosperous season known and Hope for better prices presently. In knit goods some complain that they Are carrying too Large stocks and that margins for profit Are close but a great Many orders Are still received. The expansion and diversification of the manufacture leaves for foreign Supply Only the finer grades of worsted that Are not made hero. And even in menus Wear woollens there is seen some improvement though the demand looks to styles rather than Quality. The Boot and shoe business is retarded by speculation in hides and leather As prices of goods arc no higher than a year ago but while buyers Are cautious they Are numerous and the shops Are fairly Well supplied with orders. The Iron Trade shows no change buyers believing that As soon As the demand for consumption increases again no strikes or shutdowns will restrict production. Rails Are stiffer and the demand for structural Iron a trifle better. The Glass Trade is fair with prices unchanged and Lead is firm but Coppet weaker with Lake at 14 cents. The business failures occurring throughout the country during the last seven Days As reported by r. G. Dun amp co. And e. Russell amp co., of the mercantile Agency number for the United states 280, and for Canada 45, or a total of 275, As compared with a total of 273 last week and 205 the week previous to the last.

A Jacksonville Fla correspondent of the Atlanta Constitution furnishes some information in regard to the sugar Industry growing out of the reclamation by a Philadelphia Syndicate of an immense area of a reclaimed and submerged lauds which have been converted into some of the richest alluvial soil in the world. Thousands of acres Are now bearing immense Fields of sugar Cane and Groves of tropical fruits and of All this immense 4,000.000-acre tract but a Little Over 600,000 acres remain unsold. One of the companies formed by the original buyers the Olecho Bee drainage company has acquired by its work 1,200,000 acres the proportion the state agreed to give of drained lands and when their work is completed they will have secured 2,000,000 acres.

Ingalls enlightens the East on the Farmers political ideas predictions and vacation suggestions. Carlinville 111., March 20.�?withapen-etration sharpened by Long experience and a grasp of political affairs made sure by personal participation in the Chagos of both great parties Gen. John m. Palmer readily perceives the i advisability of posing at this time As a presidential candidate. Quot i have no ambition to he president a said he today. Quot i will represent the people of Illinois in the Senate for six years and will be fully satisfied in fulfilling the pledges made them. I am too old for a possibility. Quot this Peoples movement in politics comprehends Many republicans and an infusion of Young democratic life. A my Success is duo to the Effort to have established in this state an election of senator by Tho people i attribute my Success also to the thorough organization and assistance Given by the Young men. Quot i have already expressed myself on the presidential situation so far As i myself am concerned and i do not care to enter into the personality of the coming contest. Quot the Reward is for Somo Young Man. And. Let me say. If Cleveland could be removed to Chicago the Groat Metropolis of Tho political West he would be the strongest candidate that i can Call to mind. could then be in the great movement at present manifesting itself and his striking personality and years would Render him All Tho More popular and powerful. Quot the Northwest is determined to exercise its influence upon the politics of Tho future. Heretofore we have been tied to the apron strings of new York Aud Indiana until the Domain of these states has become an unendurable despotism. Hereafter with increasing cohesion and virility in the party the Northwest with its affinities South and to the Pacific will control the political destinies of the country. Illinois too will be solidly democratic in future and act in Harmony with Tho states embraced in the territory just named Quot let me impress it upon you now that no Man entertains a pro founder respect for or. Cleveland than do i. The courage of his statesmanship is not to be denied. I Admire his fearlessness and integrity. If Cleveland is not the next democratic Choice it will be attributed to the fact that he is not in sympathy with the West and Quot who do Vou think Aro the More probable democratic nominees a Quot my political objects have very Little relation to the personnel of the next ticket a answered gov. Palmer. A my ambition is achieved. The state is a Factor in political conventions its democracy is United and victorious. It is also too Early to express a decided preference for men. When i have preferences they shall be subordinate to the objects of the state. I made this Battle against the despotism of Republican Ascendancy. I was compelled to Appeal to the people and i will not jeopardize their interest by any premature expression. I therefore cannot be committed to any presidential candidate or the expression of any sectional ism fading. John j. Ingalls says Tho Farmers Alliance is not understood in the East. Baltimore md., March 18.�?ex-Senater John j. Ingalls of Kansas who passed last night in this City left for new York today of the Farmers Alliance or. Ingalls said Quot this movement is building greater than the majority of people on the Eastern slope Aro willing to admit. It presents Oue of the most interesting political problems of the Century. Quot Here in the East where industries and employments Are diversified its Progress is not appreciated and the strength it is gaining not understood. In the West a purely agricultural Section it has taken a deep hold on the Public mind and the evolution of the movement is closely watched by oar deepest thinkers and political economists. A these Farmers have concluded that there Are wrongs existing that need adjustment. The growth of the organization is not ethereal or spontaneous but has come with a Strong undercurrent of reason that will ultimately Laud it on a solid foundation which will defy All the efforts of political agitators to shake. Of course the blatant demagogues whose claims Are unreasonable and untenable will not be the ones to carry this movement to the Success i look for it to reach. You will Rind however that with the Force behind it and with even partial Success these agitators will to forced to give Way to the More conservative element and the leadership will be assumed by men impelled along by philanthropic or patriotic feelings and whose counsels can safely be followed with the Assurance that it will Lead to tangible results. A the adjustment of the Tariff the expansion of the circulating medium and other measures the absence of which thinking Farmers believe the stagnation that now Atli lots them will be advocated by the Best minds in the movement in such a Way As to carry with them a Strong popular feeling. A i think it May be compared to the feeling of republicanism which Swent Over the country from 1856 to 1860. This result might be More quickly reached could the West and the South find common ground on which to stand. A the West and the North have recognized this All along and have very adroitly prevented any coalition. They know that in Tho South anything that endangers local government by the White element will be resisted and that every other interest will be sacrificed to this end. They have managed to strengthen this feeling by an occasional menace. Quot in the West sectional feeling has been resorted to with varying Success until this year when it signally failed. Such plays on the passions and interests of Tho sections have about reached their limit. Quot Tho sections Are becoming apathetic alike to appeals and menaces and when the one Dies out and the other is allayed we May look for a coalition that will produce tangible results. Quot the existing political parties however May by their platform and the candidates nominated make such concessions to the Alliance As to cause the members to return to their respective folds with Tho belief that evils that they seek to redress will be reformed in their own Lodge Trade Mark on it. Nahant statesman on Force Bill As an Issue in �?T92. Washington March 16.�?representative Lodge is still in Washington and will remain Here until the Middle of May. smiled Good Nat redly today when asked concerning the prophecy of Roger o. Mills made in an interview at St. Louis that the Lodge Force Hill would be one of the issues of the Campaign of �?T92. Or. Mills asserted that the Tariff would be the permanent Issue but that the Force Bill would come close in the Wake of the Tariff fight. Quot of course or. Mills will not Frame the next Republican National platform a said the Nahant congressman with a look of compassion and tolerance for the texan. A i can understand or. Mills feelings. and most of his colleagues Are squirming Over the situation on the Silver question and they Are particularly anxious to look ahead to any issues other than Silver. Perhaps the matter of Federal elections will be an Issue in �?T92. I certainly Hope it will be. It ought to be. But if it is it will be because the Republican party choose to make it an Issue. A it would be rather interesting to see How or. Mills or his associates would Frame it into an Issue. Would it be by an anti Federal election Plank in a democratic platform a a and or. Lodge Shook his head As much As to say that or. Mills could not steer the course of the Federal election Issue so Long As it had the Lodge trademark attached to it. Holman predicts. Foresees Early change in method of electing United states senators. Washington March 16.-representative Holman of Indiana who will be one of the most prominent democrats in the next Congress said today in the coarse of an interview Quot i will venture my reputation for Good judgment upon the prediction that almost the first thing done at the opening of Tim 52d Congress will be the passage of a Resolution to Amend the Constitution requiring the election of senators by the people and it will become a Law. There is a Strong sentiment in favor of it and the change is almost at hand. The measure will be introduced in the House As soon As Congress meets and there will be very Little delay in its passage. I predict that the present method of electing senators will very soon he done away Quot what do you think will be done about the Tariff in the next Congress a Quot before the 1st of february the House will Send a Tariff Bill to the Senate. It will be a Bill making a moderate reduction of duties on lines compliant with the demand of the people and very considerably increasing the size of the free list a the Farmers Alliance.

It hardly can to realized that next year will witness the convention and election which will Settle which party will run Tho government for another four years from less than two years hence. I think or. Harrison will be a candidate for renomination and in that event or. Blaine now his chief Cabinet adviser will not oppose him in Tho lists. It is a sort of unwritten Law that Cabinet ministers should not oppose their chief Iii a presidential contest and i have no doubt it will not to violated this time. Or. Blaine will be font Cut to round out his career with the Secretary ship of state a position that in this country is ranked next in Point of importance to that of president. And he has performed its duties Well. A a Man who has tasted of presidential sweets usually asks for More and for that reason i think the Campaign of 1892 will resemble closely that of 1888, with or.

It was decided not to open this package until today. Blaine and Cleveland. Since Gen. Palmers election As United states senator from Illinois an attempt has been made to bring him Forward As a democratic presidential candidate but the Illinois democrats have their minds apparently fixed in another direction. At a a democratic rejoicing in Bloomington 111., Over Gen palmers Triumph the two principal speakers stated that Illinois democrats would stand solid for Cleveland for president in 1892, with but one great Issue and that the Tariff. The tide still sets strongly towards the renomination of Blaine and Cleveland next year. Connecticut a trouble.

Washington March 21.�?Gen. Joseph e. Johnston died shortly after 11 of clock tonight at his residence on Connecticut a. Tho general had been suffering for the Pant three weeks with an affection of the heart aggravated by a cold he caught soon after Gen. Sherman a funeral in new York. Gen. Joseph e. Johnston. Gen. Johnston was the last save Gen. Beauregard of the six full generals of the confederacy. Some Days after the Sherman funeral the general one night got up out of his bed while in a state of profuse perspiration which greatly aggravated Tho slight cold with which to was suffering. This brought on a severe attack of his old heart trouble which completely prostrated him. While his friends and attendants knew that he might pass away at any time yet they had no warning that the end was so near. Gov. Moline entered the room a Little after 11 of clock and As he approached the goneral�?T8 bedside he heard an almost inedible sigh and the general was dead. The interment will be made in Greenmount cemetery in Baltimore. Joseph Eggleston Johnston the Quot Fabian funeral of the confederacy was born in Ringwood near Farmville a. Fob. 3, 1809. His father was Peter Johnston a revolutionary Soldier who earned Aud received the thanks of Congress before to was old enough to vote his Grandfather was a scotch immigrant to the James River Region in i /27, Aud the founder of Hampden Sidney College Gen. Johnston Smolier was Mary Wood a Niece of Patrick Henry. Quot Joe As his West Point chums called him was in the same class with Robert e. Lee afterwards his chief and graduated with High rank in 1829. was at once commissioned second lieutenant in the 4th artillery. was in Garrison till 1834, except that in 1832 he joined the Black Hawk expedition then for a year he was on topographical duty in 1830 to was made first lieutenant in his old troop and served As aide de Camp to Gen. Scott in the Seminole War. In 1837 to was made a lieutenant in the topographical corns and Breve Ted Captain for gallantly in the War with Tho Florida indians. One of his uniforms pierced with 30 Indian Bullet holes. Was Long preserved by his friends As a relic of one of his hair breadth escapes. Until the outbreak of Tho mexican War he was engaged mainly with topographical work having under his charge such important matters As the Boundary line Between the United states and Canada As Well As that Between the United states Aud Texas. also superintended great improvements in Inland navigation such As the Lake Erie harbours and Sault Ste. Marie. The full rank of Captain of engineers was conferred upon him in september. 1846. In the War with Mexico to took part in Tho siege of Vera Cruz. In Many of the important Battles and in the assault on the City of Mexico. At Cerro Gordo he was severely wounded and for his Gallant and meritorious conduct was Breve Ted major lieutenant colonel and colonel. At Chapultepec he led a detachment of the storming party and was the first to Plant a regimental color on Tho ramparts. was mustered outs lieutenant colonel of volunteers in August. 1848, but was reinstated As Captain of engineers by act of Congress his new commission dating from the first appointment. To served in this Arm until about a your before the War when he was made quartermaster general of the United states army. This rank to held when he resigned to enlist under Virginia a Standard. Tho key to much that is tragical in Johnston a army career is found in his own words which follow Quot when Tho state of Virginia seceded being a citizen of that state i resigned my office in the United states army. And As i had seen a Good Deal of military service in Tho Seminole and mexican wars and in the West the president of the confederacy offered me a commission in the highest Grade in his army. I accepted the offer because the invasion of the South was inevitable. But i soon incurred or Davis displeasure by protesting against an illegal act of his by which i was greatly wronged. Still to retained me in important positions although his official letters were harsh. Quot Iii 1864, however he degraded me to the utmost of his Power by summarily removing me from a High Gen. Johnston was first stationed at harpers ferry removing to Winchester on his own responsibility and giving technical offence to Tho civil authority by violating such orders As seemed to him incompatible with the safety of his army. When Gen. Beauregard was attacked at Manassas by Mcdowell july 18, 1861, Johnston rapidly marched to his assistance and assumed the command which belonged to him on account of his rank. left to Beauregard the tactical command of part of the Field and accepted one or two of his suggestions As to the Battle this resulted in a confusion among outsiders As to where the actual responsibility Lay and Johnston a newspaper reputation suffered in consequence. Johnston continued to Lead the defence against Mcclellan until he was wounded at fair Oaks. To was shot in the shoulder and afterwards a horsed by a fragment of Shell striking him in the breast this injury incapacitated him for duty until the following autumn. March 24, 1863. was assigned to the command or the Southwest including Tho troops of Gens. Bragg. Kirby Smith and Pemberton. Irater in the Spring he went to Mississippi Ana took command. As to the conduct of the Campaign in the Mississippi Valley there Are fair doubts whether Gen. Johnston did really do Justice to his great reputation and his undeniable ability. Pemberton he urged not to pen himself up in Vicksburg but was unable to prevent it nor Send him the reinforcements for which he begged. Johnston a great Opportunity was in opposing Sherman. His conduct of this Campaign has been much criticised. Sherman says a no officer or Soldier who Ever served under me will question the generalship of Joseph e. Johnston. His retreats were timely in Good order and he left nothing behind. Hood superseded Johnston to his own serious astonishment and almost discomfiture. On the very Day that Sherman began his attack on Atlanta. The new chief urged first upon Johnston to disregard president Davis commands and then upon the government to withdraw or suspend them at least until after the Battle. Johnston very properly refused to Quot pocket the even for a single Day. And the War department refused to suspend or alter its instructions. Grants comment is significant a a Johnston a tactics in this Campaign do not seem to have met with much favor. Either in Tho eyes of the administration at Richmond or or the people of that Section of the South in which he was commanding. The very fact of a change of commanders being ordered under such circumstances was an indication of a change of policy and that now they would become the aggressors a the very thing our troops wanted. Quot for my own part i think that Johnston s tactics were right. Anything that could have prolonged tile War a year beyond the time Liat it did finally close would probably have exhausted the North to such an extent that they might then have abandoned Tho contest Ana agreed to a separation a Quot backing and digging was the Way the critics of Johnston described his methods. Hood was aggressive no Back about him fighting a Rotter than rigging and he got his fill of it. made bold and frequent sorties but Sherman took his Only Railroad and planted his foot on it to stay. Hood got out. Thomas made thorough work of his fighting with Hood when he was left to Deal with him Tho fighting general got away to Tupolo. Miss., after the most Complete front a Southern army had Over suffered he had Only a spectre of the army that Johnston had left and. Tardily enough but with excellent judgment Davis government returned Tho commander to the wreck of his old legions. The order Camo from Gen. Lee and directed him to Quot concentrate All available forces and drive Back he did the first and tried his Best to do Tho second. urged Lee to withdraw from Richmond and beat Sherman before Grant could join him but Lee know that even Johnston a skill in evacuation could not deceive or delay the silent and energetic smoker then watching Richmond so Johnston throw himself before Sherman s March resisting the irresistible and delaying the Advance a much As he could. Then followed the important Battle of Bentonville fought by an army gathered up out of fragments Here and there and condensed to very substantial form to face their old foe. The stars and stripes kept on their course but they met with just enough resistance to show what a service Jefferson Davis rendered by removing Johnston before Atlanta was attacked and not restoring him till after Savannah was taken. Acting under on agreement with president Davif Johnston entered into Tho famous a military convention of april 18. 1865 which transgressed the province of the Union general As outlined in Lincoln s order to Sherman. This agreement was rejected by the National government and on april 26 Gens. Johnston and Sherman signed another surrendering the Confederate army on Tho terms of the agreement signed by Grant and Lee. After the War Gen. Johnston was president of a Railroad in Arkansas president of the National express company in Virginia agent for the London. Liverpool and Globe insurance company and for the new York lire insurance company in Savannah a. In 1877 to was elected to represent the Richmond District of Virginia in Congress and was soon afterwards appointed commissioner of railroads by president Cleveland. The difference of opinion As to Tho strategy and policy of the War Between or. Davis and Gen. Johnston exhibited itself at an Early Date Ami from it May be induced Many of the disasters that befell the Confederate arms and the final fall of Tho Confederate states. Gen. Johnston was wounded in the Indian War in Florida in the mexican War and in the civil War to times in All. Early in life he married Lydia Mebane daughter of Louis Mclane. She died in 1886 without Issue. Gen. Johnston published a Quot narrative of military operations directed during Tho a to mar Between new York. 1874. Draw big salaries.

Something about ice. Once it was a great luxury now it is a common necessity. Detroit free press at one time in the worlds history ice was considered a great luxury and Only the Rich could enjoy what is now looked upon As an absolute necessity. In ancient Days Snow was used As a substitute. It was brought from the mountains and stored away in nits dog in the Earth and was covered with Straw or other substances that proved non conductors of heat and also protected it from the air. Mention of this fact is made in the proverbs of Solomon and itis frequently alluded to in Tho writings of the ancient greeks and romans. It is still in Vogue in Italy where Snow gathered in the a penises is brought by peasants to the principal cities and stored in cellars made especially for that purpose in Many parts of France and England the wealthy have icehouse built on their estates and fill them with ice from the neighbouring lakes and streams. It was not until 1845 that ice was publicly sold in London and then Only in very Small quantities. In America ice houses have been known for the last 200 years. They were at first very primitive affairs being nothing More than deep cellars Tho flooring made of hoards or Stone upon which was placed a layer of Straw or sawdust. The sides were lined with boards set about a foot from the Wall and this space was filled with sawdust Tan bark or Straw. A rough thatched roof completed the Structure which was then filled with ice Between the layers of which Tan bark or sawdust was strewed. As a matter of course tile Supply of Cut ice was very limited for a Long time and it was not until about 60 years ago that it became a commodity admitting of Purchase by persons of moderate Means. In new York City alone at the present Day the yearly consumption of ice amounts to about 1,000,000 tons. In addition to its employment for Cooling water Aud other beverages in the course of time its value As an agent for preserving meats fruits etc., was recognized and As a consequence Tho demand for it was greatly increased. The first person to attempt to Export ice from this country to foreign lands was an american named Tudor and although his first shipment in 1806. Met with poor Success he at last established the business on a firm basis. Now it is shipped to tropical climes and proves a paying Industry. In Many warm countries however the sole Supply of Lee depends upon its artificial manufacture As it would be impossible to Export it without absolute loss. Of late years the manufacture of artificial ice has assumed Large proportions in the United states the High Price and Scarcity at times of the natural article requiring the employment of cheaper Means of production.
