A LONG LOST SWORD FOUND. | Given to * CmirteniiK Nontherner and Recovered After Yfitr.i, Fretlert.-k Mathrr, suiu'rlntoiiilont of the New Yu:U State Fishrry cnmmiKsion lit Colrt Spring Juirlwr, has had a peculiar and interesting experience. In the winter of 1864 he l-nliHted hi the One Hundred and Thirteenth New York regiment, which was shortly afterward converted into twelve batteries of heavy or garrison artillery. Thene batteries were inwtructed in gun drill at Washington, but when It became certain that there was little danger of the Confederates attacking the capital, the regiment wan ordered lulo the field ua Infantry. They, however, clung to their title of the Seventh New Yurk heavy artillery, n designation they had received on being tninsforuiwi into gun tiers. On June 10, 1W>,, Lieut. Mather was in command of L company, which was the color company of the regiment, ami belonged to the First division of the Second corps, commanded by Gen. Hancock. The-1 command was moving on the enemy'a works ut Petersburg, V.v On the right! was the Irish Legion, und the two bodies diverged. The Confederate forces rushed through the gap, and the right of the Que Hundred and Thirteenth or Seventh New York heavy artillery were tukt'u prisoners. To save tho colors Lieut. Mather determined to bury them. This he did, ami he was in the act of burying his sword, a presentation from llnttery I, on which his namo was engraved, when a southerner stepped up and said: "Jjook iiere, Yankee, just drop that," and ordered him toiuovo inaidu theeiiL-rny's trenches. MI obeyed the order," said Capt, Mather, "and wils carrying my sword in its sent) bard, and belt in my hand, when n man in plain clothes demanded it of me. J saw he was a civilian, who hud only com*: out to have a shot at us, and 1 resisted. During, our struggle, and just us the man was about to strike me with hit* tlst, an oOiccr came up and indignantly asked ii he was about to strike a prisoner. Tho man fell back unit 1 handed jny sword to the nllicer, who, thinking I was wounded, offered me hospitality, and I wrote, his name and ad-dross on a New York Tribune that I had in my pocket Nothing could have Ik'cu kinder than the behavior of my captor. 1 was subsequently .unfilled in prisons at Macon, Oa.,'Charleston and Columbia, S. C, and lost the memoranda with t he name of the man who had my sword. I had some Idea that lie was a Georgia man, and in my travels in connection with tish culture in the southern states have always been trying to find some trace of him. "A few years ago Capt. L. Hrewster, who liad served in A company, Tenth Alabama regiment, during the war, died. A .south crn paix;r published that among his property was a sword belonging to Liciit. Mather. The item was copied into The N:i tioual Tribune, and 1 saw it. I communicated with Capt. Urewster's representative's and the old sword, scabbard and belt once more came iniw my possesion. The scabbard lint* an imlcntat ion where a ball (struck it in tho battle. They are relics*if n bygone feud, but i prize them very dear- I ly.''-New York Tribune. | 'I'll** Area of Colombia.

They have learned that if they overstock the market the price falls at once, and dairymen must realize that fact, must face that fact, that the market demands fresh butter, and that you most keep the supply nnd demand more nearly in harmony.-Professor Cooke's Report. A Peanut Kxchatige. In one industry Norfolk has a monopoly. It is the mart of the peanut. This humbl and oft derided tuber cuts a considerable figure in the sum of Norfolk's commerce. There is a peanut exchange doiugabusi ness of alHiut $2*50,000 per annum, and the business of sorting, cleaning and shipping Is in the hands of three leading firms. The peanut, sometimes called by tho native the "goober/' is grown in five near by conn ties. The process of winnowing and sorting Into grades employs a great many negroes, mostly girls, who sing with great gusto as they work.--Boston Transcript. IIml lleunl of Him. An English paper alleges that "on a recent trip to Europe the chief justice of the supreme court of Texas was introduced to an English member of parliament. The introduction was mode, not by name, but by the judicial title of tho American visitor. 'Oh, yes,1 said tho Englishman, 'I hav heard of you. Your name la Judge Lynch.' -San Francisco Argonaut. The Mouthpiece of I run. In Central America travel is generally undertaken at night to avoid the heat and glare of the day, and twelve hours at a stretch In the saddle are not thought excessive. The traveler, therefore, who would see very much ot thelnterior must expect to encounter many petty inconveniences, annoyances and hardships. Though peril is not always added to privation, yet it will be well to wear conspicuously a revolver. This little mouthpiece of iron will secure its possessor proj>er attention and freedom from insult. Ha may not need to use it, but its known presence i� a potent farcy. Your p*.x;lu't will bo safer when jr�ardou by this silent watchdog. The pistol is a Cerberus that, accepts no sop*-Chicago Herald. Georgia proud of It* Orators. Has it occurred to you, gentle reader, that Gourgia brain is at a premium in this country? No orators in this country have so charmed the intellectual setise or stirred the souls of northern audiences us the lamented Grady and our little Cherokee giant Graves. No man in liio present congress is tho equal in parliamentary management and resources of our Georgia Crisp, aud now Georgians hear with pride that at the recent gathering of the Natinnnl Bar association no such attention wns paid to any s|wuki*r as to tho Hon. Walter H. Hill, of Macon.-Athens (Ga.) Ledger. A Long Pull. A remarkable fall of a miner down 100 meters of shaft (say 9113 feet) without being killed is recorded by M. lteutneaux in The Bulletin de I'lndustrie Minurale. Working with bis brother in a gallery which issued on the shaft, he forgot the direction in which he was pushing a truck; so it went over, and he after it, falling into some mud with about three inches of water. lie seems neither to have struck any of the wood debris nor the sides of the shaft, and he showed no contusions when he was helped out by his brother after about ten minutes. He could not, however, recall any of his impressions during the fall. The velocity on reaching the bottom would be about 140 feet, and time of fall 4. ID seconds; but it is thought he must have taken longer. It appears strange that, he should have escaped simple suffocation aud loss of oonaciousnustt during a time sufficient for the water to have drowned him. Fresh llnttor Wanted. \|Pc have to consider the condition of tfce xogoaot ut the present time, that consuls Bpl not take butter that hat* been kept. The time has gone by when you con pat butter an the market that bus been held over and get a good price, and we might just as well face the question first as lust. People eat butter 805 day* In the year, and they eat very nearly the some quantity. In o^her im tltmk., and six feet six inches below it reaehtjFlOOdegs. Notwithstanding these diKdfiuraging conditions nature was beginning to put forth efforts to cover the unsigl/ly heap with the luxuriant verdure iff the South Sea islands. Two cocoauu^ trees wore struggling upward, but they'd id not look prosperous. Spec, mensi of grass and two other plants were found, and stranded fruits were found here auj/1 there, all ready to germinate if they had any encouragement. The only living things the visitor saw were a bird and a small moth, but he found the burrows of some creature. Unless the sea destroys Falcon Island before it has a chance it is not difficult to foresee what will belts future. On this volcanic debris a host of marine animals and plants will find a resting place; coral reefs will spring from the shallow waters around It and form a breakwater against the waves* the seeds of oocoanuts and of many shore loving plants will drift these on the tide* decaying vegetation will mix with tlie volcanic awhe* to form alluvium, and another verdant island fit for the abode of man will exist in the southern seas.-New York Sun. Don't Let Children Cough. A doctor in an institution with many children declares that nothing irritates a cough more than to cough. He bribed thu children in one of the hospital wants to hold their breath when tempted to cough, aud was astonished at the speedy relief of some of them. -Now York Journal. W. Clark Kussell, the nautical novelist, is a son of Henry Russell, tho famous composer, and was born hi New York in 1844, His mother was Miss Lloyd, a relative of the poet Wordsworth, and in his early life he was a midshipman in. the British merchant nor vies. Society Lore. As is well known, Mr. and Mrs. Bradley Martin, of New York, have among their lares and peuates many superb specimens of old hilver and gold ware, Sevres, brio-o-brac, and, rarest of all, some very ancient tapestry which, ages ago, adorned the walls of some continental church. Some friends of Mrs. Martin called, and, while waiting for her, made u tour of inspection through the parlora, attracted by the Immeuse piece of tapestry on which were richly embroidered the symbolic letters "I. H. SI" Cms lady said to ths othen "Here is u mono* gram; so Mrs. Martin must have hod this made to order." "Oh, no,'1 said the other: "this, is not her monogram, but this cloth must have belonged to the Sherman farui ly, for the letters are L H. S., Isaac H. Sherman." tshe was evidently less versed in biblical than in society lore!-Boston Courier. * ent to* work at that lot ihe Inst week in JnnunryMid began tho preliminary work i toward making nn on^on lM:d. They paced i It oil from north to south, east to west; , measured it with poles, paced it off ngidn, then lay down under a tree to rest. This measuring nnft resting louk several days. When they were sure of the exact size they hrodght iu a horse and plow and began to turn over the soil, one man driving the horse, another holding tho plow, while the third rested under a tree. After two or three furrows were ��made there was evidently a difference of opinion as to whether the lot should be plowed up and-down or across. There was an earnest conversation, a vast amount of pointing and gesticulating, and the horse and plow were taken nwny. The next day the plowing began ngaiu, nd after three days of what in Bermuda is !dle� labor, the lot was plowed. Such ex-rtion of course demanded a period of rest, and after the lapse of one day tho three men reappeared, armed with hoes and rakes, and began to "smooth down" the soil. This is work that .the Bermuda darky must delight in. He must first determine where to begin, and that requires some "�.ours of deliberation. Then, having made up his mind, he attacks one corner with a 'uic, and strikes several effective blows, A carriage drives prist, and ho stops nnd leans upon tho hoc handle till it is out of sight. Two or t hree more blows, and lie goes slowly off to � distant part of tho lot for a drink of water. On his return to work ho breaks two or three more clods, finds a stone or a bit of broken glass that attracts his attention, picks it tip and carries it to one of his fel low workmen to get his opinion of it. Kc urns to work, breaks a few more clods, and by this time is so fatigued that he has to stretch out under a tree aud rest. It in only, of course, while he is under the boss1 ye that he exerts himself in this way. When the boss is absent the darky is asleep under a tree. He gets four English shillings a day for this business, and does not earn one. Although the Bermuda darky is better educated and generally "more civ illzed than his brother in the West Indies, ,e is just ivi lazy and just as thoroughly worthless. At the end of two weeks the lot wn;-plowed and raked down to a proper smooth ness. Then followed a period of inactivity, perhaps to let the soil recover from its unwonted exertion. After a lapse of three or four days the men appeared, again and repeated their former pacing off and measuring, alternating this with siestas under the tree and heated arguments about whether the beds should run lengthwise or across This important matter took days of deliberation, and nt length the beds were marked out. Then came putting out the "sets," for in Bermuda ihe onion seed is sown In the open groun-t and allowed to grow until the bulbs are o.4 large as the end of a small finger, the plants lieing then transplanted to long beds of t-\x straight rows each, with narrow walks b.^ween. It took more than a week to put out the sets, and February was almost gone before the gardon planted. Those three men were at work at it for four weeks, doing what one good American gardener would have done in four days. This was a good example of "cheap" col ored labor: Three men at t\ a day each twenty-four days, STii; an American gardener at f2 a day, four days, $8. The owner of thot lot would be frighteued to pay a laborer J2 a day, but ho was really paying his men at the rate of $10 a day each, considering the Work they did. But when the men went home to rest after their arduous toil nut ure began her work, and it is a good thing for Bermuda that nature is not as lazy as the darkies. For two or three days the tops of the little onions were wilted and brown, and it was hard to see that anything was planted at all. 4Jut they began to pick up. There came a warm rain and sunshine, and more warm showers, and at the end of the week the onion beds ware as green as they would be with us in a month. All the weeds that show themselves are carefully pulled out by hand, frequently by women and children, and the soil is loosened with narrow spading forks with long handles.-Cor. New York Times.
