In a house in the country that is simply awful for its echoes of "Ye Olden Times" there was once perpet uated a hideous distortion on a slave woman. It was a life long punish ment for a slight fault, and it is more than an echo until this day, for in her agony she cursed the daughters that should be born to that house. The first the stork frought was to a beautiful young mother, lying in her linen and laces, who named the child after a President's wife as they were of the "near great." One night the mosquito net was pulled tight over a yellow face that glared in upon her-both the child and its mother. The mother think ing it an impertinence of the nurse called aloud and the nurse alarmed at her excited tones rushed from the other room. They both saw the fig ure stop at the bureau and touch touch tenderly the old trinkets of sil ver and gla...

"Sergeant, you should make those blasted dudes discard kid gloves. Wearing them is to make less favored soldiers feel as if the wearers wished to show their superiority.

REMINISCENSES OF CIVIL WAR As I sit dreaming o'er the past as it were, my memory flies back to November, 1860. Tuesday the fate ful election day had come. Hoary headed men, fair graced women, youths in the flush of manhood, maidens fair to see, boys and girls waited with breathless expectancy the result of the election for President of these United States. Whigs, Democrats and Republicans had can didates in the field. Bell and Everett Whigs, Breckenridge and Lane, Dem ocrats, with a split off party of Demo crats headed by Stephen A. Douglass (and let me say right here the split in the Democratic party proved fatal to the South), Lincoln and Hamlin, Republicans. News did not fly fast in these days as now and when returns came and it was announced that Lincoln was elected, oh! what a blasting of hopes. Our country was like a mighty ship becalmed, the sails flapping idly, the hull raising no ripple. There was an ominous silence, then the low mutterings of an approaching storm. The clou...

TRAVELERS AID REPORT The following is from the annual report of the New Orleans Traveler's Aid, furnished by Mrs. Geo. Denegre, president. The Travelers Aid has become a Civic as well as a charitable organiza tion and has endeavored to organize on a business basis. The City has recognized this by an increased appropriation, which we endeavor to earn by faithful service, curing for those Mr. Patterson of the Charity Organization calls, "The City's transient guests," returning un desirables to their homes, preventing others from becoming a public charge and endeavoring at all times to wel come and aid in making comfortable strangers arriving and departing. Since the War many organizations have dissolved or have limited the sphere of their work, making addi tional demands upon us. Our Home and our Association has become' a clearing house for many charities which in turn aid us, so there is complete cooperation and no duplication.
