Once more the most wire-nerved, limber
toed, iron-hinged men performing in the
arena of private life is asked to come to the
mourner’s bench and contrast his accoutre
ments wEli those of his weak, feeble, and
no-nerved sister human, and to ask himself
whether or not—king of beasts as he is—
he thinks he could frolic around with all
his muscle, tendons, sinews of war, and
solid flesh if he were caparisoned from neck
to heel as woman is. He may claim six feet
in his stockings, or os many as a centipede
if he pleases, but lie will tell you that he
can’t leap-frog worth a baubee unless he
lowers a notch in his suspenders. He may
be able to wrestle with truth and throw it
like a blacksmith, but he ttrst demands a
ring, fair play, and no tight waistband.
His cranium wouldn't bo worth an empty
cocoanut for mathematics if a dozen long,
crooked hairpins wero jabbing his thinking
apparatus. He will not be hit below the
belt, and he takes off the belt when the
mark has been sufficiently made in that re
gion. In fact, man is a pretty good forty-
horse power engine without harness—all
his trammels gone and a space to move in
left him. But haul him in, reef him, tackle,
cleat and shackle him as women are; stick
wires in his brains, gird in his lungs, liver,
heart, spleen and stomach with no more
chance for a good long, yard wide breath
than a man would have in his iron coffin,
then turn him loose.
Pin his arms to his sides in tight, gros
groin silk sleeves, choke his Adam’s apple in
a No 13 collar clinched with a diamond but
ton. Pinch him in most where he lives and
when his knees tremble and the cold sweat
runs off his ample brow, add one more dig
nity—nay, fifty others—in the shape of
tight, stiff undergarments, bustle, lopsided
from its own heftinesss, plait after plait of
heavy woolen, bouffant fatness of cashmere,
nil in a weak spot, just where nature meant
her opine to give way and curve like a ram’s
horn if pressed too much. Then lasso what
is left of him in jetted Jersey as heavy as a
coat of armor or cnirasse of Charlemagne,
weighted down with long spikes, balls
tassels and chunks of jet.
Put on him elbow kid gloves so tifjht as
to give his thumb a deathly cholera infan
tum grip in two seconds; put on his head a
bonnet pricked with burs and sticky with
beads; tie this under his left ear in a knot
which threatens strangulation—then ask
him to maneuver, jump, dance, prance,
fight, wrestle, or play Copenhagen, leap-frog
or any of his gymnastics, anu watch this
giant fall down right away in a tit and grow
black in the face. Poor, weak woman, in

former place. The article did not
state that she had eluded a board
bill, but left that to be inferred, and faceti
ously described the contents of the trunk,
which was opened by the people at tho
Hurst House. The mention of a pair of old
corset*, a slipper, a plug of tobacco, and a
“God Bless Our Home” motto as the only
contents of the trunk incensed the lady,and
she sued for $5,000 damages.
Belle Boyd, or Mrs. Hammond—for that
is the name under which she brings the
suit—was seen this morning at the ltevere
House by u reporter, fihe is a woman of
tall and graceful form and a face in which
still lingers much of the beauty which it
possessed when its owner became famous
during the war.

A RESERVE’S KNAPSACK OPENED.
Hemlulacencea of Twenty Years Ago—Post
No. 1 Abandoned In Haute.
I am retrospecting this morning and ns
my thoughts travel backward I feel the
same martial spirit which enthused mi
mere than twenty years ago. I didn't be
long to the regular army of tlie Confede
racy, I was too young for active service.
(Were I to send 'you a photograph of the
author I fear after you had seen the like
ness you would doubt this statement.)
Nevertheless, I was a component part of
that brave hand of old men and boys wlio
fanned the gallant hand of reserves who
stood like a wall of adamant between our
homes nnd Wilson’s cohorts.
A few days since you published nn au
thentic account of the capture oi President
Davis. I haven't the least idea that X was
then, nor am I now, ns important a person
age as President Davis, but still at that
time there was a feeling in common be
tween us, for while ho was retreating to
wards Mexico I was well nigh persuaded
that a temporary residence with Mis
tress Swamp Mollte would be a comfortable
resort for me. However, I resisted the
promptings of my fearful heart and boldly
stood at uiy post until routed, not by the
enemy but by a couple of sick furloughed
For home guard duty a battalion was
formed in this city of old men nnd hoys,
(I belonged to the bitter class, please bear
this in mind.) consisting of the following
companies: Company A, Macon Volunteers;
Company B, Floyd Ri flies and tho Silver
Grays. We did guard duty and assisted the
enrolling officer to enpture stay-at-homes
and soldiers without furloughs. I never
captured but one and he got away from me
in the Lanier House, for the reason that I
was afraid to Are at him as lie ran, lest I
might wound some one who might he cross
ing the hall, and besides, old man Meara
c une up and ordered me out of his house,
sij-iug “he didn’t want no boy in his
house pointing a gun about.” I left nnd
never saw my prisoner again until after tho
war. We passed without speaking. I didn't
want to renew any war acquaintances.
As I was saying before this digression,
our battalion did a right smart chance of
duty here nt home, and when the news of
Wilson’s advance on the city was received,
we were posted on the outskirts of tho city,
font No. 1 was my post, and it was just
where the dirt bridge spans the Macon and
Atlanta railroad. Three of us were placed
on this post—i. e. Hominy Bill, I won't call
his regular name for fear he wouldn’t like
being named in print, Ed H. and myself
wero the ones selected. >
Sergeant Holmes says to us," when he put
us there: “Boys,” says ho, “you are to
keep all soldiers, males generally, women
folks excepted, from coming across this
bridge, be they going towards town.” After
giving ns these orders the sergeant rode on.
lie was the mounted officer of the guard.
The sergeant wasn't well out of hearing be
fore Hominy Bill began to shoot at every
pigeon which cume in sight.
“Bill,” says I, “what in thennmeof com
mon sense are yon shooting all your ammuni
tion up for? Suppose the Yonks charge nnd
take the breastworks out yonder, how are
you going to help me nnd Ed keep ’em back
with nothing but your empty gun?”
He sorter smiled and said: “I reckon if
the Ynnks capture the breastworks the best
place for ns will he at homo."
We stood gunrd there nil of the morning
and didn’t nave no trouble stopping folks
from coming across the bridge until about
three o’clock, when Bill, who had been tip
the road, came hack. “Hero comes two old
Confeds, nnd they are making for the
bridge. It’s your time Tim,” said he, “to
We were sitting under n small pine which
grew to the right of the road. I got np-
took my gun iu hand nnd walked across the
road to the bridge nnd took a position wuit,
ing for the soldiers to cross to my side of
the bridge. They came right on singing nnd
shouting, nnd cursing. When they enrno
within n few feet of mo, “halt,” said I in
my biggest voice.
“What do yon want, buddy? Hnsyongot
any buttermilk to sell?" said the one iu ad
vance of his companion.
I heard Ed nnd Bill lnngh, nnd I got mail.
I didn’t have no milk for sale. I wo* a sol
dier on duty and felt tlint his remark was a
reflection on my military bearing. “Look
here,” says I, “my orders are to stop uny
body, no matter who, or how, from crossing
this'bridge and you emi't come over it." I
spoke boldly and positively.
“Buddy,” said the same one, “Is yonr
ma got any younger ones than yoa? Cause if
she ain’t yon'd bettor run home nnd let her
look nfter yon; yea's too yonng to be out
hero by yourself.”
Ed nnd Bill laughed loudor than before
and I got sorter shame-faced. I’ll try it
again, says I to myself. "Post No. 1 in
danger," says I lustily. “Come to the res
cue/’ I shouted to Bill anil Ed, but they
didn't pay no attention to my summons,
but rather slunk nronnil on the other side
of the tree. This summons of mine made
the old Cofeds mad, powerfully mud, nnd
the fellow who hadn't said anything till
now, went nt mo: “Dog gone my cuts,”
says he, “this is hard on us, Jim. We've
lieen in this war ever since it broke ont.
We've been in Virginia, Tennessee, and God
knows where else, and are here on sick fur
lough, anil all we've done nin't counted for
nothing, because here we’re stopped by a
little bit of a boy, hardly big enough for a
powder monkey, who says we can't cross
this bridge. It's mighty hard on us, Jim."
He looked at Jim kinder sorrowful like und
then they both laughed a horse laugh.
“I cnlruln*e the jig's up when its come to
patting children on gtutnl," said Jim.
“Come here, Tim,” colled Ed and Bill, and
I went to them and the old C infeds went on
to the city.
In a few moments a cavalryman rode at a
rapid gnllop across the bridge shouting:
‘The Yanktes are coming, the Yankies ore
coming; which is the river bridge?"
“Hold on mister," Boiil I, “and give me a
ride and I'll show you the bridge."
He didn't stop, nor did we. Post No.
was abandoned, and in ten minutes after we
put away our guns nnd we wem’t long iu
doing it. Three of the smallest hoys in the
city were Ed Hugnenin, Bill Harbanm and
yours truly, Timothy Cuabtuee.
A PENNSYLVANIA DESPERADO,
ne Say* no Jail can Hold Him nnd Una
none Much to Provo It.
A dispatch from Reading, Pa., says: De
tective kendiner, nfter n very severe strug
gle, has succeeded in landing in jail one of
the most desperate characters that ever
annoyed the officers of justice in Eastern
Pennsylvania. He answers to the name of
Jeff Davis. Last August, while being tnken
into court here to he tried for burglary, he
leaped from the court house window, and
by n desperate rush got through n crowd be
low nnd escaped. Since then he has been
giving great annoyance to the police wher
ever he has traveled, tattooing small hoys with
hideous pictures in blue ink. A few days
ago bo was shadowed at Lebanon and ar
rested. That night be broke tho prison
bars and escaped. He was recaptured and
taken to jail, and yesterday morning, when
discovered, he had nearly succeeded in tun
nelling the wall. Another hour aud he
would have completed a hole large enough
to enable him to drop thirty feet to the
pavement and escape. On liis way to Read
ing be made a desperate resistance on the
train, and had to he beaten into submission,
There are charges of arson, larceny, riot,
etc., pending against him. Ho is 24 years
old, of herculean build, and boasts that no
prison walls are strong enough to hold him.
