1 was surprised to see In a Chicago pa
per a picture of Lieut. Col. Mayne Oer
trude Morris, of Tennessee. In Ihe uni
form of a member of Gov. Candler's staff
of Georgia. After what the Governor had
said about the G. A. R. It seemed strange
that he ahould be repreaented at the Na
tional Kncamrment even by a "stunning"
young lady member of his *<nff, who was
h. raided with Mrs. lahnan. the first
white child born In Chicago, as "Two Fa
mous Women." The sketch accompanying
her picture raya: "Miss IJeut. Col. Mor
ris will wear her official uniform of blue,
with military rrgalla and aword and rows
of brass buttons, and will ride In the
parade Bhe la the only young woman In
America who holds a commission on a
Governor's staff. She Is a typical Southern
girt, a writer, and a talented musician
and has been ranked negt to Winnie Davis
In Ihe hearts of the Southern people" I
must offer solemn protest to this last as
sertion Next to Winnie Davis was Julia
Jackson, daughter of "Stonewall” Jack
son. and next to her LleuL Gen A. P.
Hill's charming daughter, horn during the
war, and next to her Caroline Gordon,
the talented daughter of Oen John B.
Gordon, and born since the war. But none
of these ever clslmed to be "next to Win
nie Davis In the hearts of the Bnuthern
people," and Miss Morris certainly can
make no such claim.
By Ihe promotion of MaJ. Oen. Mite* to
be a lieutenant general our army and
navy rosters present a peculiar appear
ance. Congress revives the rank of ad
miral and gives It to Dewey, but leave*
the rank of vice admiral "out In the cold.”
Then It revives the rank of lieutenant
general In the army and leave# the rank
of general In the background. Grant,
Sherman end Sheridan were full generals
by special gel of Congress, a rank that
Washington declined. Grant, Sherman.
Sheridan, Schofield and Miles have been
or are lieutenant generals, while Scott was
* brevet lieutenant general. Farragut and
Porter were full admirals, the rank now
held by Dewey. Porter was made a vice
admiral and on the death of Farraguf was
promoted to be admiral and held thul
rank until he died. When Dewey de
stroyed the Spanish fleet at Manila Ihe
rank was revived and bestowed upon him.
The official records show, therefore, fhaf
the rank of general and of lieutenant gen
eral In the army, and of admiral and vice
admiral in the navy, are not established
ranks to be reached in the ordinary meth
ods of promotion, but depend upon special
acta of Congress to confer them upon

Gen. O. O. Howard, U. 8. A. (retired) the
famous Chrlsilan warrior, gives the
laoutsvtlle, Ky., Christian Observer, an
article on "The South Afrktsn War," In
which he suggests that "the British will
do well lo consider Washington's advice
lo live United Slates, to wit: 'ln time of
peace prepare for war.' "Diplomacy and
reinforcement should go hand in hand."
This is exactly the doctrine 1 have always
preached. When the Civil War clouds

While It was a noble act on the part
of the Czar of Russia to propose ihe
peace commission of The Hague, few peo
ple could see In li* proposed consulta

er or more universal peace In the world
at large. In fact, strange as tt may seem,
that meeting of peace commlasloners
appear* to have resulted In turning loose

A nightmare of Ihe Do* !>••

Person* returning from the "other able '
have always expatiated upon Ihe beauties
of Richmond. It* fine prosper, of the all
very serpentine Thames, Its lon® stretch#*
of wood*. Ita lovely terrace and lta cool

Intolerable London heat came and I found
myself wilting I went to the office of an
Kngliah friend. Henley by name, and said
"Can't you leave business for awhile
and take a Bred stranger to some cool
place? I've known heat In New York, but
never such pertlnacsau* heat as this."
I have said that my friend la an Kng
llshman. but wer# It not for hla epeechhe

Incarnation of hustle. Our quick lunch

Still If* nlway* powMbl# to work hwMcr

and I’ll run down to Richmond wall you.
Then I left him dictating two letter* at
once and I rode on top of a 'bus up and
down ttao busy Strand until the half hour
W | was near spent with Ihe heat. I look
ed forward to a cool, ahady retreat at
Richmond, where, perhaps. I could listen
to the son® of an English lark or a thrush
and alp n cooling claret cup and reflect
upon the vanltte# of thla world.

He flung It down a* T came In. and said:
“Ah. you're Juat In time. A train leave#

Seven minutes, end It wh a mile from
Henley's ofltoe to the Strand. It would
he a shame on a day when horaea were
dropping like flle. lo make a horse do a
mile In seven minute* In crowded London.
But I found that Henley was merciful lo

out awblstllh®. totally oblivious of the
fact that death from heat proatratlon was
hovering over me. „
At Waterloo bridge I gave out. A 'bus.
I panted, and one happening to pass at
that moment, Henley Indulgently let me
hoard It and followed me himself.
"Ah. the pleasures of the country,”
sang he blithely He looked hot. but lie

after wave of deadly dry heat eurged
from mv heart to every pore of my body.
Mv tongue clave to the roof of my mouth
and my brain seemed bursting with the
heat. Still we were going lo lovely Rich

Arrived at the elation Henley found
that the train for Richmond had not

with the lettuce, dressed entirely with

The ginger beer wa* nice and warm, al
most aa warm as the day was. The file*
found ua out before we were waited on,
and we did not linger for an after lunch
eon cigarette, but departed at once for
Kew Gardens. • • •
Oh. how lovely Kew Gardens must be
In cool weather. In weather shot I* not so
warm that you expect to see people fall
ing like rain. Hot ae I was. I could not
repress my admiration for the noble tree*.
Ihe vaat lawns, the diminutive tiger lilies.
"Gome, let ua go Into the hothouse and
see the zroplcal plants.” aald Henley
airily. 1 looked at him In astonishment.
Tun the fellow meant It, and with an ag
onised thought of my little ones acroas
seas I followed him toward the great
Once, year* ago. I vlalted the smelting
room of a bras* mill In Connecticut and
saw the mercury keeping at 1 with th*
greatest ease, and iwhen 1 stepped Into
that new conservatory I wished with all
my heart that I was back In ih* bra##
mill. Oh. how the ireea and shrubs grew
In that heat. I was afraid that they
would buret their prlaon I could hear
my brain frying and spattering agalaal
the confines of my skull.
And that Henley, not content, must
needs lead me up a winding staircase In
the top of the hothouse Just ao that I
could feel from personal observation Hint
It wa* hotter near the top. My friendship
was strained to the point of severing
while I waa up there, and when we came
down I fell out of doors and felt the cool
sun shining on me. end thanked heaven
that I had escaped from the fiery furnace
But the respite waa only momentary.
The aun was net really cool after I had
walked a few rods. Is beat down upon me
like a fiery mist, and I shuffled along ex
pecting collapse at every moment and
rather wishing that It would hurry up
and end my suffering*. And that exasper
ating Henley was as cool as possible and
as full of vitality as when he started.
"Hurry up." said he. "We’ll walk to
Richmond. IFa not fer "
How we ever got across that burning,
though beautiful, plain to the river I do
not know. But when wa reached Ita banks
I actually found relief That river. Ihe
lovely Thame*, wa* th# one pleasant mem
ory of an otherwise frigtfu! trip. Laiy
barges floated by. atlll more taay swans
followed by peeping cygnet* swam down
wMh the current, busy little ateam tugs
rushed tip the river making cooling
hreesee, and I felt that here wa# our des
tination: here waa th# place to atop and
enjoy nature and taate the aolare of "tir
ed nature'* aweet restorer." Ah. yea. to
sleep under an umbrageous oak. whose
branches had waved welcome to klnga aa
I hey pa seed by.
But the cry of Henley waa. "On to
Hlchmond." Thus does history repeal
All 100 soon we left Ihe bank* of th*
pretty river and began lo climb hllto. and
found ourselves In a town once more with
hot pavements and holier children out for
the hottest airings with super-heated
nurse*. Up. Up. up until te cam* to a
lovely tertao* that commanded a view
of miles and miles of the Thame#. Ah.
whet a place to sit and cool off. But
"Whet's th# matter with you. old men’
I begin to think that you American* hn k
energy. Come, we'll have a claret cup
at th* Star aml Unrier."
Behold ua at last at the Star and Gar

Ihe bar a hlnnsy barman like a atraml
rd Ash gasped with the heat. We ordered
our claret cup and drank It aa fast is
so that esc might reach UM
open eir before the stroke came. For now.
even Henley waa hot.
We paid our reckoning and rushed out
of floors. Beyond us lay cool asul ancient
woods. Boon the moon would lie up and
we uoulfl rest and retreeh nurselve* and
forget that beet had ever l>een.
Hut Ihla was to he e veritable night

Fifty yeara ago Mane mange wss not

cupboards there are to-day the quaint,

fulness. Irish mots was a marketable ar
ticle in thnoe day*, but mossing waa not a
big Industry, and Ihe product of the rocks
was probably not a tenth of what It la to
day. Irish moss has hern put to anew
use within recent year*, and Instead of
being gathered for food It la now gathered
for drink. This Information ram* from
a silent man who was raking over the

"Is It ready to bo cooked when you get
through with It?"
"Isn't It hard to get enough for the
people of this country to eat?"
"No. We would starva to death on whal
Is sold for food? 1"
"Whal I* It sold for IhenT'
"For beer ”
“Is that ao? Do the breweries ua* It In
stead of hop*?"
"No; for purifying th* beer."
This was anew light. Thsvpletureequ#
rows of tube, mound* and ffk tehee, tb*

were then all for beer.
