One who lias fought on many a bat­ tlefield writes the following thrilling description of the work of a battery of six 311ns: Did you ever see a battery take po­ sition? It hasn't the thrill of a cavalry charge, nor the grimness of a line of bayonets moving slowly and deter­ minedly on but there is a peculiar ex sitement about it that makes old veterans rise in their saddles and iheer. We have been fighting at the edge of the woods. Every cartridge-box has been emptied once or more, and one ,'ourth of the brigade has melted away in dead and wounded and miss­ ing. Not a cheer is heard in the whole origade. We know that we are being ilriven foot by foot and that when we break once more the line will go to pieces, and the enemy will pour through the gap. Here comes help! Down the crowded highway gallops a, battery, withdrawn from some oth sr position to save ours. The field ience is scattered while y...

I WEEKLY ST. PAUL, Sioux & ALERT. Telegraphic. BISMARCK, Feb. 2G. The appointment of McClure as commissioner of immigra­ tion was confirmed by the council yester­ day, but a battle occurred over the con­ firmation of railroad commissioners. Col­ lins and Weiser went square back on their North Dakota friends. Strong sen­ timent seems to prevail against this evi­ dence of alleged treachery. The Yank­ ton-Mitchell court bill was lost by three votes, and Yankton still retains the court. McCumber made a scathing speech on the broken pledges of the two North Da­ kota men who hold out against the or­ ganization. Mr. Dodge spoke at length on the merits of the bill. Collins left the room, but afterwards returned and spoke explaining his vote, saying he made no agreement to vote the court away l'rom Yankton that it was not included in the compact, and he otherwise defended his position. The council room was crowded, and great excitement was visi­ ble among members and spectators. INDIANAP...

The bright wind flows along, Calm nature's streaming law, And its stroke is soft and strong As a leopard's velvet paw. Free of the doubling mind, Full of the olden power, Aro the tree, and the boa, and the wind, And the wren and the brave May-flower. Man was the last to appear, A glow at the close of day Blow clambering now in fear, He gropes his slackened way. All the up thrust is gone, Force that came from of old, Up through the fish and the swan, And the sea-king's mighty mold. The youth of the world is fled, Thore are omens in the sky, Spheres that aro chilled »nd dead, And the close of an age is nigh. Tho time is too short to grieve, Or to choose, for the end is one And what is the truth to beliove, And what is tho right to bo done? A MYSTERIOUS LOVE EPISODE.

At least the real tact of the case is that it is all very immoral. But that's neither here nor there. I had been watching the play some time—I, generally looked upon by the fortunate others as an old maiden lady probably without experience, and certainly without hope. The play went on at the seaside serious play, for the stakes were high, high as when some Old Eastern potentate risks his lovely Circassian girl, body and soul, to his antagonist. The players were not Eastern potentates, but all the same, lovely girls, body and soul, were the stakes. I used to think of it when I saw Laura Btockwood, that stately beauty, and Jeannette Dean, the dashing one, and Caro, and Elsa, and Edith, and the rest. And among the rest could one forget Bettie Bennett? She was not a person to allow hergelf to be forgot­ ten. ,Y\ And" yet you did n...

WEEKLY ALERT. Telegraphic. NEW YOBK, March 7.—The condition of Mr. Beecher this evening does not vary essentially from that given to the press last evening. The only changes percep­ tible are an increase in the rapidity of the pulse and respirations. These stand respectively 108 and 36 to 38 per minute. The respiration is also more shallow. Temperature reaches 100 degrees. Symp toms indicate a gradual failure of vitality, which has been anticipated, and consn quent slow approach of the end. This course of disease can only be changed by the occurrence of fresh hemorrhage, an accident which may or may not happen, and the time of which cannot be sur mised. Mrs. Beecher is being nursed by an ex perienced nurse named Keordan. When asked how Mrs. Beecher was she replied that she was more composed now that she realized that Mr. Beecher must die. She is in the room constantly. Last night she slept on the cot in the next room. Dr. Searle said after he left the house that Mr. Beecher's pulse ...

Both branches of the Pennsylvania Legislature have passed and the Gov wrnor has signed the joint resolution providing for the submission of a prohibitory amendment. On the Other hand, in Minnesota high license has become an established fact. J. W. Bookwalter,of Ohio,who has just returned from Europe for the twentieth time, says: "From what I could, see I think the Germans would whip the French again. France is full of soldiers,but they all have a boyish, smallish look and make no great impression on strangers." The coyote is the enemy of the jack rabbit, and used to keep his numbers Bonn. But some years ago a bounty was put on the coyote in California, and he has since decreased and the jack rabbit increased, until now the latter does great damage to vineyards and orchards. It is, therefore, pro­ posed to take the bounty o£E the coyote and put it on the jack rabbit. The New York World says that a number of Boston capitalist...
