In July, '61, - were more bushwhackers in Scot- id and adjoining counties than Union men. These bushwhackers wore a class of men too cowardly to go into the main army and had formed themselves into marauding bands of from ten to fifteen in number, whose ostensible object was to apprehend and drive out Union men, but whose real object was to plunder, rob and kill. They would secret them selves in the thick brush or in deep ra vines, and like wolves, from their dens, would come out from their hiding places at a late hour in the night and seek the residences of Union men. If they found the man of the house at home, they would put a rope.around his neck, - drag him from his bed across the floor and out of the door and hang him to a limb or the most convenient place. At other times they would t...

The Chinese have adopted a system differing considerably from our own as their conception of animals, birds and forms always does. They had two great periods of star naming in ancient China, the. first between 2,000 and 3,000 years before Christ and the sec ond about a dozen centuries later. At this early period Chinese astronomers divided the heavens into quarters, con taining twenty-eight groups of stars.
