It is astonishing How much damage can be done by the Lac shot which can he put into an old horse pistol. I afterwards Learned that All the horses in the first set of fours As Well As two of the men. Were hit. Though none was seriously injured by that greyish Brown Many a double shot. In half a minute some of our men were on the Bridge but so were some of the enemy. Ten seconds later Tho Bridge was jammed with horsemen. Fire fast fire fast a screamed fur major. The major meant Well but Bow much firing could be done on a Bridge Ouy wide enough for about four men abreast after the men in front bad emptied their revolvers How were any but the surest shots and those nearest the front to fire without hitting their own comrades who already were using their revolvers As hammers or hitting the johnnies with Bare lists there was Little firing on the other Side for nearly All the confederates carried shotguns or muzzle loading muskets which they cupid not reload in haste so after firing once they used their guns As lances punching our men in Bovast or face and being horribly cursed in return. Meanwhile each horse was looking out for no. 1. The horse is a wedge shaped animal and each of our four footed wedges pushed his head and shoulders Between those of horses in front of him. This gave the animals absolute rest As Well As safety while their riders were fighting. The major turned to Tho rear first cautioning his captains to maintain the pressure and soon we heard him say Quot two rear companies dismount third company deploy on the right fourth on the left Pepper their rear with carbines As Long As there a a Man of them in tin Saddle carefully be careful not to hit our own men a this promised sickening Slaughter for our men with their carbines could get within 100 Yards of the most Distant Johnny and do a great Deal of harm before the enemy could dismount and fire More than a single shot. Probably the enemy would follow our example As soon As they saw what we were up to if any of them were left after we had Given them a Volley or two. This is not a joke. Our Sharp carbines were As True As sporting titles. For several months we had been taught when fighting dismounted with carbines or revolvers to shoot from a rest whenever possible and our practice shooting showed that anywhere within Point Blank Range we could shoot Well. At the major s orders three men of Verj set of fours in the last two companies dismounted and hurried to Trees logs and fences near the Creek. Quot now men a said the major to us Quot As soon As they begin to fire and Clear away the rear you press upon the Advance with nil your Naglit. If we drive them off the Bridge Divide right and left As soon As you get across and ride Down their flanks and Well capture every mothers Sou of them who a this seemed practicable and i hoped it might begin at once. Had there been no other reason it would be vastly pleasanter to take a lot of prisoners into Camp than to Bury an equal number of Confederate dead for burial party duty stays in ones mind. Quot Why done to those skirmishers begin firing a shouted the major though it was not easy to hear him above the horrid Din on the Bridge. Quot crack a went one of our carbines. I reined my horse toward the Edge of the Road to see when the enemy a rear should become weak enough for the pressure to begin. A crack crack crack a sounded in rapid succession but the sounds were not like the report of revolver or carbine. Something new was occurring on the Bridge for All the men both Gray and Blue seemed to press to one Side. A second or two later that entire Bridge containing 40 or 50 Union troopers and As Many confederates went Down with a crash und a splash into the Creek below. Here was the unexpected again and a great Deal of it too so i looked anxiously at the major to see what he was going to do about it. He did no to seem a bit puzzled. On the contrary the Bridge had scarcely fallen when he roared a skirmishers cover the Road on the other Side of the Bridge done to let a Reb get away second company dismount lie Down along the Edge of the Bank cover every Reb trying to get out of the water and order him to come ashore Here a out of their saddles dropped nos. 1, 2 and 3 of each set of fours in our troop and in less than half a minute each had picked out for himself a Gray target in the great Gully below. The skirmishers had already begun to Blaze away at the Gray targets on the other Side of the Bridge but the johnnies like sensible soldiers broke Reg lit and left into the Woods left their horses pretty Well sheltered from fire by the standing Timber and then took cover themselves behind the Trees nearest the Creek and began to operate exactly according to our tactics firing on our skirmishers Ami trying to secure prisoners from the struggling mass below. We were Tho stronger in numbers and weapons but nature gave the enemy one immense advantage. As members of the Potomac army will remember creeks on the Virginia coast almost invariably have one Bank High Ami Steep and one which is Low and shelving and where we were fighting the Steep Hank was on our Side. Our Fellows could not easily get out much less drag out prisoners but the johnnies had up their own Side before All of us were in position to fire. Some too whose horses had been hit or who had dropped their guns during the Tumble had the presence of mind to take Yankee carbines or horses with them. One had the impudence to Lead away two of our horses including the forage blankets and overcoats strapped upon the saddles Ami he sheltered himself so skilfully with one of the animals that none of the bullets aimed at him seemed to hit. On the other hand when one of our Fellows tried to climb the Bank on our Side perhaps with revolver in hand trying to drive an unarmed prisoner in front of him. He was a capital Mark for Tho other Side to shoot at and if was hit his prisoner would generally change ids own mind and hurry Back to Bis friends taking with him the wounded Many a revolver and carbine As a memento. Such a dash required him to Wade the Creek but the water was not very deep and a Man who had once been wet did not seem to mind a Little additional soaking. Suddenly the major who had been closely eying All that had occurred passed the word from Man to Man along the irregular line of kneeling crouching or Fiat lying skirmishers that at the word of command nil should drop Over the Bank Ford Tho Creek press the enemy As closely As possible and try to drive them to the left of the Road. Two Miles away on that Side was another Road by which we rightly imagined they would hurry for Home should they think us too Many for them. Men without carbines were warned to have their revolvers fully loaded before crossing. It took two or three minutes for captains lieutenants and sergeants to pass Quot Forward this word along but when the major roared a Forward a Over we went. The excitement of the jump was intensified by our sabers. Many of us had made Long jumps from barn roofs or Brick piles or builders scaffolding when we were Young but our sabers Hadnot. There a nothing adaptive about a Saber anyway so these weapons mixed themselves with our legs in a most alarming manner. We found the water quite As wet As any 1 had Ever stepped into Ami tie Bottom was not As hard Ami smooth As we would have liked. It made our legs feel Overli Eavy too As we went up the opposite Bank with our boots full of water but it was no time Ami place to Call for towels and dry trousers. A Forward a again shouted the major who had waded the Stream with us As unconcern edly As if he were not wearing his $20 trousers. Quot Forward a he continued to repeat about once a second and Quot Forward a shouted each Captain after him. The johnnies were Brave Fellows but they weren to fools. They began to see that we could fire several shots to their one and the fighting was at such close quarters that the instant one of them fired ids muzzle loader a yank was upon him demanding his surrender before he could reload. Soon they allowed us to Chase them through the Forest an 1, As they were better woodsmen than we they got away quite rapidly taking with them besides the prisoners they had already sent to their rear one or two of our men who were a trifle too expert in the Chase. When their firing slackened to scattering shots and finally ceased our Bugle sounded the recall and we were sent Back to Cross the Stream for our horses which were led one by one Down a path hastily broken and dug in the Steep Hank with fragments of tie broken Bridge and then up the opposite slope. From each chapter Xii. Aftuk the fight was Over. 0ft last we were on our a own Side of the Bridge a those who were left of us. Roll Call showed thirty men missing from the first company which had carried Only fifty men into action besides several the other companies. A some of the missing we found dead or wounded in the Creek and Woods with a larger number of the enemy in the same condition but after a careful count we found the johnnies had secured about twice As Many prisoners As we. The proceedings of the next hour or two would not have interested any civilian Spectator in search of the glory of War. Several mounted men who had been hurried away to a farmhouse known to be about a mile Down the Road came Back with All the Farmers wagons carts coloured men Spades and picks. Into the wagons and carts on a lot of Pine Tufts hastily picked were placed the wounded and our own dead. The coloured men under the direction of the Farmer who had kindly volunteered to help burled the Confederate dead near tie Roadside. Some of the wounded groaned terribly und one poor fellow almost broke my heart by faintly screaming Quot father a every moment. I did no to feel any better when we Learned that the wounded boy whom we were about to cart away was a son of tie old Man who was preparing the dead confederates for their last Home. Then we knew Why the old Man had offered to assist the burial party and Why he had looked so quickly and intently through the gathering dusk into the faces of the dead. The boy had been brought in later from the Woods and the father would never have known of his presence had it not been for Bis cries. The next scene was equally painful the old Man begging with tears in his eyes to be allowed to take Bis wounded child to his own House Ami the major insisting on his duty to carry All the wounded captives to our own Camp. Several minutes before the old Farmer had been to us Only a stay it Homo rebel. Now there Wasny to a Man of us who would not have added our entreaties to his had we dared. It was a great Relief to All of us when our assistant surgeon who had been rapidly examining the wounded assured the old Man that the boy would need frequent surgical attention instead of borne nursing if his life were to be saved so be would be better it it of in our Hospital. Then the surgeon offered the Farmer his hand and after a shake the old Man sighed Quot ill take your word for i understand Why a Mere handshake was so convincing until one of our Middle aged chaps told me that both men were freemasons. But the agony for us was resumed after we started for Camp for the major though True to the letter of his duty was a Freemason himself so he halted us in front of the old mails farm Long enough to let the family come out and hid the boy Good Gay perhaps for the last time. They came Down with a lantern for it was now quite dark and the Mother sobbed and wailed As she leaned Over the cart and did All her thinking aloud and told How handsome and cheery her Hoy had looked when he took dinner at Home a few hours before for the first time in months. His pretty sister whom All of us had adored from time to time As she stood at the farm Gate with her father to see the soldiers pass by prayed aloud for heavens curse to fall on the Man whose Bullet had pierced her brother a lungs and i am sure each of us trembled at the thought that the Bullet might have been his own. Near them stood a Little brother and sister crying in the pitiful hopeless Way that my brother Ned did when he first heard that i was going to the War. Yet this was not the Only family that suffered by that engagement. Besides the men killed outright some of our own comrades died afterwards of their wounds without father Mother Sisters or Brothers to say Goodby to them. Not nil the missing were taken prisoners by the enemy and nearly half a year of awful uncertainty and of frantic letter writing passed before we Learned this through our captured men who returned when exchanged. One of our men whose leg was broken by it Bullet and who then was knocked senseless by a glancing shot on his head floated Down the shallow Stream some distance before he came to ids senses and got ashore. Staunching his wound by tying a strip of Bis shirt tightly around his leg he bound the broken limb in twigs and then spent two whole Days and nights in crawling on his hands and one knee to our nearest picket station several Miles Distant. In the Early Spring a coloured Man who went to the Creek to fish found tie remains of one of our men beside a tree a mile below the scene of the fight and scratched on the bark of the tree were a few words telling How the poor fellow had died a lingering death from wounds exposure and starvation. Yet the entire engagement in which a full third of the men on the Bridge were either killed wounded or captured within 15 minutes was in military parlance a merely a Little mention of it never got into the newspapers. There were thousands like it except for the falling Bridge during the War the results be Long too Small or gradual to be part of the history which was being made by some great engagements which proportionately were not so bloody. Perhaps the Story of this one will explain to some people Why old soldiers when chatting together about the War talk much of the March and Camp but very Little about fighting. The fight at the Bridge was these a Verest engagement in which our company had Ever participated so i ought to have been so absorbed by it a i to be insensible to anything but my a duty As a Soldier. I am glad to say that i loaded aimed and fired As carefully As if of As if it were Tho first Day of the a open season for Quail id the Woods and Fields near Summerton. Nevertheless i frequently detected myself in the net of looking about me to see what other men were doing. I saw Cloyne loading and firing As placidly and smilingly As if lie were merely making out Bills at the Suin Merton lumber Yard. Mick Mcswyny was handling his carbine As energetically As if it were a Coffee Hiltl Jet in his excitement be was discharging it in the direction of the Sun the tree tops and his own toes As if Tho enemy were atoms of the surrounding air and could be easily hit by a Man with his eyes shut meanwhile he was voluble cursing his platoon in English and Irish with some assistance from the verbiage of the holy scriptures and the vocabulary of the bowery for not firing More rapidly and carefully. A look at that Little Dolvil Brainard a he shouted. Quot he a Puttin res into Purgatory As fast As if he was Walkin to sunday school in Brainard / Tho sound of his name startled me and caused a guilty Paugas my having been concerned Only for my own Lif impressed me. I looked quickly a a. For him and just in time to see him Roll Sid Wise from behind a fallen log his face As White As the paper on which i am writing. Killed no he moved. I hurried to his Side and asked him where he was hit. Quot in the heart. Jack but a towns not the enemy that hit me. A twas Mick my to Yuyu a Tongue. Great heaven in be vowed my life a Hundred times to the saving of men you know i was studying for the ministry. But now i m trying to kill men its ally but Why Arentt you firing see that red bearded face sticking out from behind a tree on the other Side of the Creek no no done to you fire at him Here goes a brain Ards slips closed so tight that i could not see their dividing line so i looked toward the Confederate with a red Beard and n second after Brainard fired i saw the red bearded Man clap a hand to Bis shoulder. Then the angles of his elbows and Knees indicated that he had gone out of action and sat Down behind his tree. At that instant Brainard himself had a strip of skin and a bit of flesh taken from his Cheek by a shot from the other Side but be did not know of it till tie fight was Over. I was recalled to a sense of duty by Cloyues who drawled a what Are you lounging for Jack this Isnit a sunday school quickly i covered my confusion by regaining the cover i Hud left but i was still curious to know but other men were doing. The Balaklava veterans were Side by Side on the ground and As Fiat As the head of a Snake about to Coil though they did not seem intent on striking. Not far to my right stood Phil Hamilton handsome and composed As usual but in apparent trouble with his pistol. He looked so Superb with his Clear Cut face erect figure and Broad shoulders that for a moment i wished my Cousin May might see him. Then i was glad she could not for did not Brainard love May and was not Brainard my Dearest Friend still pistols Are made Only to shoot with and the moment of Battle is the time to use them so i hurried Over to Hamilton and said Quot take my pistol and give me yours. Mine is in perfect order and As t helped father when he was inventing a revolver i know something of a pistols Quot thank you Jack a said he As coldly As if he had been born and brought up in an icehouse Quot but i think 111 conquer it in the course of i was somewhat offended by Bis manner but i reminded myself that there is a time for everything and that Why can to we come Over to your Louse and play any More be Carlse papa gets so maa when we make Little bit of noise.

When again i chanced to look toward Hamilton i saw that his face was very White and he was looking at a card photograph. I could not doubt who the original was.

Horses have their own reasons for not reporting a a Mere scratch that might in time disable them. Climbing our bunk a Brainards and mine which was at the top of a tier i saw my Liuni lying Down with a pocket Mirror in one hand my Cousin May a portrait in the other and with tears in his eyes. Quot Brace up old Chap a said i. He quickly turned his hands to hide their contents but his face was too honest to hide anything that was behind it. Besides he said in fragments Between sobs Quot i was homely enough before. Now in a disfigured for life. The surgeon deny it and Hamilton a he always was handsome. Heaven made him so. Therefore in be no right to complain but but a a but you fought Aud be did no to Quot he a Quot he did no to 1 say. I was watching Brainard mopped his eyes with his hands and looked proud us instant. Then he groaned a a a tvs a hard world the cruellest thing about it was that Brainard was the Only member of our company that got a scratch though fully half Ltd of us not being handsome like Hamilton coveted the scar which Brainard wore after his wound lie aled. Among the half that did not covet that Quot red badge of courage was Hamilton. He never spoke of it but Many times Ute award did i see our handsome commissary sergeant look at Brainards Cheek with an expression that indicated extreme satisfaction and Triumph with a dash of contemptuous pity that made me hate the Man though in had always been so considerate of my abnormal appetite that he had slyly Given me double rations of hard tack when we went out scouting. To be continued. Good hearted Idun it bodies. There Are thousands of Good people in this world who having very Little trouble in managing their own affairs spend their Leisure hours in making plans for their neighbors and constitute themselves self appointed general managers of other menus lives. Anything More positively aggravating than the disclosures of these schemes can hardly be conceived when they Are made to reticent thinking persons who Are using every Effort to control the circumstances which stir round them to the Best advantage. To have concentrated every Energy to Trio amendment of Adverse influences and then have some eager energetic Friend coins upon you suddenly and ask you much As if waking you from a lethargy a Why done to you do thus and so a is a severe test of your temper and your affection for the speaker. But after All it was kindly meant and these Good hearted busybodies whose a a fade is the regulating of their friends families meant to lend you a helping hand. To Aro taking away what stands to them in the place of a full purse and the use of an uplifting lever when we refuse to York Post cd Estera Competition in shaking up tin Muster Industry. Eastern markets have been successfully inv sued if not captured by resourceful Western Melon growers abetted by the favourable soil and climatic conditions of the irrigated regions of the Arkansas River. Realizing apparently that it behoves the Eastern grower to a get a very decided Quot move on himself in order to in a this Competition successfully the Cornell n. station offers the following information and advice the Early Muskmelon crop is obtained by growing the plants in hotbed or greenhouse. In one Region West of Rochester Glass houses have been specially erected for the purpose of growing the plants designed for Early crop. These houses Are of the simplest Type. They Are usually even Span twelve feet wide and provided with u Center Bench and two Side benches. Conical hollers Are ordinarily employed to furnish heat. The houses also Aid materially in growing Early tomatoes. The usual method of raising the plants is As follows specially constructed bottomless veneer boxes approximately 3 inches Square and 4 inches deep Are made by the growers. The boxes Are placed on tin Bench and into the Bottom of each is pressed a wad of rotted barnyard manure after which they Are filled with Light Garden Loam. The soil is then packed Down with a a tamper a when they Are ready for the seed. About five seeds Are planted in each Box and covered by sifting soil Over them. The usual care is Given in watering. The plants should have a temperature of about 83 degrees in the daytime and go to 70 degrees it night. One of the most serious difficulties is caused by the Quot damping off fungus. When afflicted with this trouble tiny plants Wilt Down during periods of Cloudy weather soon after the seed leaves develop. Occasionally the trouble appears before that time. The fungus is promoted by Lack of ventilation and Sunshine and by Over watering. By watering carefully ventilating freely and keeping up the heat during Cloudy periods it is checked. The disease May also be appreciably prevented by spraying the plants and Soli with potassium Sulphide using one ounce dissolved in three Gallons of water. Soil Rich in vegetable matter May to expected to encourage the disease. Melons grown under Glass arc started late in april or Early in May. Care must be exercised if the seed is sown earlier to keep the plants a rom becoming drawn and the House grown plants Are set on the warmest site possible for the first crop. The site should be chosen with due regard to immunity from late frosts. Ordinarily in Niagara county the plants Are set out during the third or fourth week of May. The House grown plants Are set very expeditiously. The boxes containing the plants Are distributed by a Man or boy and the Plant set by another. In Mellow soil a Hole is made with the hand the Box quickly torn apart and the cube of Earth with plants pressed into the prepared Hill. It is important that the soil should have been thoroughly tilled so that the natural moisture shall have been conserved. When Good surface tillage Lias been Given watering will be unnecessary. Money in mules. An attractive i Ommi let Mility for the at run a Farmer. The mule is not raised for his Beauty but is intended for hard service and Liis object should be kept in View in selecting sire and dam. The Blocky mules As the trader designates them Are tie most scalable whether they be fourteen fifteen or sixteen hand mules. Some markets Call for Large mules while others want the smaller ones. So they Are All scalable especially if they Are of the Blocky Type that is i squarely built heavy bodied animals. The great advantage to the Farmer in raising mules is in this they Are Hardy healthy easily raised and come to maturity Early. In fact they Are scalable l rom ten Days old and As Long As they live. You can raise a mule As cheaply As you can a calf. The mule will be ready for Market nearly As soon As your calf and will bring twice As Ucli. In this and like counties where our farms Are adapted to grass and where but Little Grain is grown we can finish the mule ready for Market while we can Only get our cattle ready for the feeder. One can readily see the advantage to the Fanner in growing mules instead of cattle especially in this part of the country. I refer of course to the average Farmer who does not have a great Deal of pasture lands and who finds it necessary to make his pastures As Well As his feed bring the greatest possible returns. experience is that a Given amount of pasture will carry As Many mules As it will sheep or cattle Anil the profit is much More on the mules than it is on either the sheep or cattle. There has been More Money made by Farmers in this county raising mules than by handling any other class of Stock concludes a Missouri correspondent of the american agriculturist. Young mules Are bought from neighbouring Farmers in the full when they Are old enough to be weaned. They Are kept until ready for Market. Sweet Corn in one Emilon.
