First and foremost, what strikes the -observer most is tho innate thoroughness, due in no small degree to the national temperament, with which the Germans have dealt with affairs military.

NOT THE SAME MAN. 1 Illicit distilling is not so prevalent in Judge Speer's district in southern Geor gia, as it formerly was, but it is not in frequently tho case that a distiller of "mountain dew" appears before him to have sentence passed. One such offen der recently was Joshua King, an old negro. Joshua had been caught in the act by the revalue officers, and there was nothing for him to do save plead guilty. Shambling before the bar of justice, the old negro awaited the judgment of the court. His Honor regarded the old darky for a moment, as though dell berating what punishment should be meted out to him. Then, as though his memory had finally solved a point upon ' which it had been at fault, the Judge said: "Joshua, Joshua, why, Joshua, you are the man who made the sun stand still, aren't you?" | Joshua's Biblical education, unlike that: of most darkies of his class, had been , neglected. "No, sir, Judge; please, yo' honor," ho said, "I'se da man what made tho moon shine." -"Au...
