(Continued from Thursday January 14II1 )
Knoui SHll in Ue.
When lie was goi 8 thi General
said that aboul b><><> Russian
troops would march past during
the day. 1 asked him if lie could
not give me vine sort of protec-
tion. He promised 10 post senines
in ilia village,end ec uallv did so.
These sentries were placed el the
entrance to our courtyard and one
at each eud "f the village.
In the meantima we provided
three of four hundred Coaaacks
w itb bread and lutt<*r and milk :
on that day the cows were, milked
(01 them alone. s""ie Cossacks
crowded into (be kitchen, yelling

wish to drag along with them,
The Russians were well armed.
WI1.1t with then long bayonets,
eme jagged liks mas, f rrible
Sabret, wide and curved, lames
Sharpened to tinee points, and the
repulsive appearance of the sol-
diers themselves, ihey were enough
to give one a niglii man- They
made most particular inquiries
about my husband. I told them
th .t he was a Captain ind was at

Fiench. As a mallei of fact he
was right here in blast Prussia, but
I thought it best |0 say thit he
was fighting against Frenchman,
not Russians.
At dusk we noticed ten horse-
men hurling themselves repeated-
ly against a bolted gaiden gate.
Finally they burst it open and
came galloping up to tin bouse,
Out I went to meet tliein. My
children came out on the veranda
and looked on trembling while this
little scene was performed :
A young and impudent Cossack
officer, who bad already asked my
frightened people whether an ofli-
cei lived 00 the place, only to
have them act as if Ihey could not
understand, walked up 10 within
two paces vA me, and < eclared thai
he 'vameil in search the house. 1
told him that his General and
tluee officers had been there in the
afternoon, had gone upstairs to
wash, and had taken Coffee on the
veranda) and thai he and Ins com*
panions were welcomed 10 do
likewise, but that there must be
no plundei ing by the General's
own order,
"Who lives here?" ha demanded,
"Fran Siegfi led ; 1 am she," I re.
plied. With a jeering laugh, l.e
exclaimed :
"Be that as it may, we're going
In sean ii the house,' Then two
of tin1 Cossacks lied theii horses
ion tree, and the officer, drawing
ins Ion- curved sabre from its
sheath, brandished it in the air
close to mj nosr, crying : '* Vren'l
you .1 bit afraid ? Aifn'i you a bit
afraid?"
I ju-l stood still and s 1 id :
"Why should I be ? Voll are lion
Durable Russians, and I am an
honourable woman, I am not
afraid. You Won't hurt me."
Thereup officer arrived, said, "Good even,
inii, madam," tinced aboul, and
made >i sign to th* other, to fol-
low. I her were foic<*d in do so,
pulling very long faces as they
went.
Every evening the sky was red
with flames ; once we counted four-
teen conflagration* from the tower
ol our house. And i vi iv evening
we thought : "Tomorrow our turn

protected our house, and we shall

ly at 4 in the morning, so there
was little rest in bed. At night
we closed the shutters and stopped

One officer told the villagers
that the Russi mi were going to

and that all Germany would be

UNDER THE SPREADING
CHESTNUT TREE
TUESDAY. JamiBry 19, |9IJ
** PUBLISHED AT 6 P.M.
Editors are very human after
all, and at times they are not
altogether ornithological as they
would have one suppose. Nei-
ther are they god-like, or, god-
dess-like, which is it? On the
whole, we are cjuite willing to
belong to the school of Minerva
though she does wear a helmet
is it German ? instead of the
breeches, though as the hobble-
skirt has come for quite a long
stay, it is unthinkable when she
will don what is the next worst
thing to them. When an Editor
is "under the weather," how
about "under the spreading
Chestnut tree' for a change?
Well, as it may puzzle your
brains to decide, we shall con-
sider it answered bv seeking the
shelter of the Chestnut tree for
a few hours, and it may be of
vital interest to the rest of the
more robust of the race
Was it under a Chestnut, or
an Apple tree that Newton
made his great discovery ? Any.
way it furnishes conclusive
proof that nine times out often.
it is good to get under a tree
except during a thunder storm,
but as the period is on now
when th->ir average frequency
is O. 8 for January and (). 6 for
February will tike a sporting
chance. To be honest we are
under the "Spreading Chestnut
Tree"even now, (the Castanea
vesca, Lin,) there's one for you;
and it is very enjoyable.
Here are some of the dropping
that fell on us.

Foster considers himself a
great baseball fan. On one oc
casion. leaving his office a little
late for the game, he ran all the
wav to the ball park and arrived
breathless.
"How is the score? he panted
"Nothing and nothing, fourth

"That'sfine!" exclaimed Foster.
"I haven't missed anything by

The Honorable Victor Mur-
dock of Kansas, was one day
expatiating upon the wonders
of that state to a group in the
House cloak-room, and he told
this tale:
"A stranger from the East was
proceeding through a certain
section of Kansas when he ob-
served what seemed to him to
be a tall chimney rising above
the monotonous level of the
prairie.
"What is that chimney used
for?" he asked the man with him.
a native. Somebody budding a
factory in this God forsaken
quarter?" "That ain't no chim-
ney," said the other. "That's

The horse had run away, and
was tangled up in the wire fence
at the side of the muddy road.
Its half-witted owner had kick-
ed and sworrt and tried to lift
the animal till he was out of
sorts and covered with mud.
A well-groomed man came
along, took in the situation.
and suggested : "Spring (Iip
fen e back, then he can get his
feet free."
The owner of the horse
! as he was told 'Now give
a cut with the whip and
get up himself."
This the own< r also did.
Then he looked at the horse, up
and ready f<>r travel, looked at
himself covered with mud, and
looked at the immaculate gen.
tleman in Hie road Wrath fill-
ed his soul.
"Well." he grumbled, "thank
you just as much as if you'd
helped me."

Foster considers himself a
great baseball fan. On one oc-
casion, leaving his office a little
late for the game, he ran all the
way to the ball park and arrived
breathless.
"How is the score?" he panted
"Nothing and nothing, fourth
inning," replied the gatekeeper.
'That'sfine!" exclaimed Foster.
"I haven't missed anything by
being late, after all."
The Honorable Victor Mur-
dock, of Kansas, was one clay
expatiating upon the wonders
of that state to a group in the
House cloak-room, and he told
this tale:
"A stranger from the East was
proceeding through a certain
section of Kansas when he ob-
served what seemed to him to
be a tall chimney rising above
the monotonous level of the
prairie.
"What is that chimney used
for?" he asked the man with him.
a native. Somebody building a
factory in this God forsaken
quarter?" "That ain't no chim-
ney,' said the other. "That's
1 lank Lewi's well. Cyclone come
along an' turned her*inside out."
The horse had run away, and
was tangled up in the wire fence
at Ihe side of the muddy road.
Its half-witted owner had kick -
ed and sworrt and tried to lift
the animal till he was out of
sorts and covered with mud.
A well-groomed man came
along, took in the situation,
and suggested: "Spring the
fence back, then he can get his
feet free."
The owner of the horse did
as he was told '"Now give him
a cut with Ihe whip and he'll
get up himself."
This the owner also did.
Then he looked at the horse, up
and ready h>r travel, looked at
himself covered with mud, and
looked at the immaculate gen.
tleman in the road Wrath fill-
ed his soul.
"Well." he grumbled, "thank
you just as much as if you'd
helped me."
We noticed this morning King
at the wharf <>f Messrs. R II
Sawyer and Co, a fine lighter
which arrived From Havana a
week or two ag , named the
Rhodesia. She appears to be
well suited to the work of
lightering.
Another of a like tonnage is
shortly to arrive, which will
greatly facilitate the work in
connection with thisdeparlment.
The gross tonnage of the two
will we understand make up for
the recent loss of the "Brothers"
and the "Messina."
