We never forget a mother’s prayer.
And so I say. and 1 say it again.
That ever some woman Is in our best.

F. Berry of Chicago,
Uev. Joseph F. Berry of
who was elected by the Methodist gen-
eral conference as one of the eight
new bishops, Is a distinguished mem-
ber of the church, who has been editor
of the Epworth Herald since 1900. Ho
was born at Aylmer, Canada, May 13,
Russian General Facing Foemen
Worthy of His Steel.
It ought to bo a source of consider-
able gratification to Gen. Kouropatkin
to have the opportunity of encounter-
ing a completely equipped and highly
intelligent enemy. A warrior of his
voracity could hardly have died re-
plete if the scanty fare of his previous
campaigns had not been supplemented
by this brawny piece de resistance.
For thirty-eight years Kouropatkin
fought Bokharians, Algerians, Khokan-
dlans, Turks, Khivans, Samarkhan-
dians, Khirgbizes, Tashkendians and
variegated mid-Asiatics. His foemen
were worthy of the arsenal of stars,
swords and crosses which they won
for him from the czar. They were
wolves. But that Is Just what they
were. Even the Turks, because of the
infirmity of their government, resem-
bled a pack of wise animals rather
than the army of an organized nation.
When Kouropatkin went to St. Peters-
burg in 1898 as minister of war he
must have felt that he had been not
so much a conqueror of men as a hun-
ter of inferior breeds.
To-day, as he watches Kuroki come
toward him over the Manchurian hills
with a commisaariat department and
a chess game plan of campaign, his
heart should bound with the prospect
of making his first offering in the
Temple of the Real Thing.
How many strange scenes, drawn
from strange and widely separated
parts of the habitable world, must
float now through Kouropatkin's
He must see himself as he was in
1874, young enough to have the "wan-
dering feeling in the fAet," and there-
fore wandering to Algeria in the
French army under Loverdo. How far
away, how unreal those Algerians
must seem with whom he fought on
the desert sands and over whom ho
rode into the Legion of Honor!
And then the Turks especially the
dead Turk under whose body he lay,
wounded and unconscious, all one
cold night! They must come hack to
him together with his chief Skobe-
leff, standing shoulder to shoulder
witii him in hand to hand encounters
with bashl-bazouka and dripping
equally with blood while Archibald
Forbes asked them questions and tel-
egraphed to his newspapers hia fa-
mous description of their gore em-
bossed uniforms.
Turks and Algerians, however,
must be but feeble Images to Kouro-
patkin compared with those mlld-
Aslatlc Turcomans—Bokharians, Kho-
kandians and the rest—whom it was
ills life mission to subdue. "The Rus-
sians will not be able tb conquer the
Turcomans,” said Ixml Salisbury.
“The Turcoman barrier will last for
our lifetime at least.” It was Hkohe-
leff and then Kouropatkin who rid-
dled this prophecy. The Turcomans
yielded to marches as magnificent as
that of Ixird Roberts on Kandahar
and to mnssacres as promiscuous as
those of Caesar in Gaul. Does Kouro-
patkin remember Geok Tepe now and
the 20,000 men, women and children
delivered to the flesh and blood iuat
of the Russian soldiery in one of
those thorough dissuasive lessons
which, In the book of Russian colon-
la! assimilation, precede the Insidious
suasion of administrative gentleness?
Certainly there could hardly be
found for any Individual man In any
previous period of the world's history
a more varied Tetrespect than that
which comes now to the Russian gen
oral, who, a continuant away from
home, Is taking what is perhaps hi*
lust stand ngnlnst the enemies of his
sovereign and is fighting Instead of
1850, and received his education in
Milton Academy, Ontario. Dr. Berry
entered the ministry in 1874 and rapid-
ly rose in the esteem of the church
leaders. He was editor of the Michi-
gan Christian Advocate from 18S4 until
Dr. Lehmer Given Funds to Complete
Successful Invention.
Dr. Derrick N. 1-ehmer, instructor
In mathematics at the University of
California, has been voted the sum of
$300 by the Carnegie institute to be
devoted to hiring assistants in order
that he may complete a table of
"smallest devisors" which he has been
preparing during the last three year-
under a new and successful method.
Dr. I^ehmer's achievement is the dis-
covery of a new and simple process
for finding the factors of all numbers
up to 10,000,000. The task has been
rarely attempted on account of the
enormous labor involved. Dr. Leh-
mer's method is brief and complete.
While his tables carried out to the
10,000,000 would take a period of for-
ty years.
Ex-Sultan Is a Prisoner.
Few people realize that for nearly
thirty years an ex-sultan of Turkey
has been kept a prisoner at Kourbad
ji. on the Bosporus. This unfortun-
ate man is the ex-Sultan Murad, the
eldest nephew of Abdtil Aziz, who
came to the throne in 1876 on his
uncle's death, hut was allowed to
reign only three months. He was in
weak health at the time and there was
a strong party in Constantinople
which was desirous that his brother,
the present Sultan Abdul Hamid,
should be caliph. An Intrigue was
therefore set on foot to declare that
Murad was insane and he was quiet-
ly deposed and Abdul Hamid reigned
in his place. The ex-sultan, who is now
64 years of age, has become seriously
ill and his life is despaired of.
Could Not Predict Further.
More than two years a friend of
George B. McClellan made a wager of
a dinner for a dozen friends that he
could write the nauie of the next may-
or of New York on a Blip of paper.
He wrote the name of Mr. McClellan
put the paper In the safe and won his
bet. Mayor McClellan and this grand
guesscr were recalling the remarkable
feat In political prediction the other
day. The mayor said: "Take an-
other peep into the dim and distant
future, old man, and tell me what
new honor is in atore for me." "Can't
do it, Mr. Mayor." was the reply. "Mr
Murphy, the Tammany boss, has not
taken me into his confidence this
Coming Arbitration Congress.
Fifty thousand dollars has been
placed at the disposal of the score
tary of the treasury for the proper
entertainment of the delegates to the
International arbitration congress
which will hold its next meeting in
the United States during the fall. This
Is the first time the United States
have had the honor of entertaining
this body. The International Arbitra-
tion—to give the organization Its full
title—ia composed exclusively of mem
hers of parliaments and national leg-
islative bodies of the different Euro-
pean countries.
Worked Hard for Material.
In gathering the material for a re-
cent book S. R. Crockett lived for
nearly three months with a family of
smugglers on tho eastern Pyreoan
frontier; ho spent a week In a camp
of Carliats, and with them ran away
from the gendarmes; he passed three
nights with a hermit who dwelt among
the rocks at the upper end of tho Val
ley of Arlege: In a fortnight among
charcoal burner* he discovered that
they were mostly ex brigands and
"not so very much ex' either," as Mr
Crockett says.
• c soldier said, "I didn't know that.
General, ami if you will wait until l
put my gun together I will come to
a sort of a salute." Then came the
storm. Nelson raged and swore and,
ordering one of his bodyguard to tie
the careless guard with his own gun
strap, said: "You will cauue the
death of more good men by your
cursed stupidity than your damned
neck Is worth," and the General rodo
away In his wrath, the very person
lflcatlon of the war spirit.—Chicago

Capture of “ Lady Breckenrldge."
"I cannot indorse Peter Miller's
account of the capture of two guns of
rebel battery at Missionary Ridge,
said E. ninek of company A. Seventy-
Fourth Illnois, now living at Downing.
Wis. " The capture of the guns
lxuly Breckenrldge and Lady Buckner
(not Bragg) is claimed for the men
of Wagner’s brigade of Sheridan's
division. Wagner's brigade was the
Second,, and I was in the First Bri-
gade, on the left, and in position to
see the work of Wagner’s men.
We had toiled up the ridge in the
face of a terrible musketry fire that
caused the solid eartli to rock, and
which was destructive and appalling.
Ten or a dozen rods from the crest
we found a bank or steeper portion
of the ridge, which afforded some
shelter. Here the advance (the lines
having become spread out with men
and scattered) halted to catch breath
aud to await the men coming for-
ward. Two or three minutes after
reaching this point 1 looked over into
the lines of the Second brigade and
saw an officer talking earnestly to
the men, and In a short time the
lines moved forward in the last and
llual effort.
' The men of Wagner's brigade lay
directly in front of the battery and
as thet moved forward and rose
above the sheltering hank they re-
ceived a full discharge of canister,
which tore great holes in their ranks,
causing them to falter for a moment,
but a moment only. Immediately the
files were closed and, cheered and en-
couraged by their officers and with
determination • on their part, they
rushed directly forward toward the
guns. Seeing and knowing what they
wefe about to attempt I could only
stop and look, furgetting my own
danger in admiration of such mag-
nificent courage. On they went,
right into the flash of tho guns, the
torn and ragged edges of their clothes
and colors seeming to catch fire as
the flame enveloped them.
" All the regimental flags of the
brigade were represented in the
charge, but I particularly noticed and
remember tho shot-torn colors of the
Twenty-Sixth Ohio, and a few years
ago, when the Ohio flags were carried
la the parade at Columbus, I again
saw the flag of the Twenty-Sixth, and
I thought of this hell-spot and felt
there was glory enough wrapped up
in the folds of the flag to make a
whole state proud. At the moment
of discharging tho guns the lino was
broken Just at the right of the bat-
tery. and In a minute all were over
the works and the enemy was fleeing
down the other side of the hill. See-
ing Wagner's men in the flash of the
rebel guns, nnd also seeing them in
the rebel Intrenchments before the
smoke of tho discharge had raised
decline to believe that any one else
captured thnt battery.”—Chicago In-
ter Ocean.
One Cartridge to Two Men.
"The Russians and the Japs." said
the Sergeant, "are going to war well
equipped as to arms and ammunition.
That is more than can be said for
scores of regiments sent to the front
in the first year of our civil war. For
example, two regiments of the Kanaw-
ha division went up the Ohio from
Cincinnati In boats. We were armed
with old smooth bore muskets and wo
had never seen a cartridge. It was
supposed that there were at least one
thousand cartridges on the two boats
for two thousand men.
There was great rejoicing along
shore as tho two boats, crowded with
soldiers and with hands playing nnd
flags flying, steamed slowly up the
river. On tho Ohio side men on
horseback followed us for miles,
cheering and waving flags, and every
town made a demonstration. There
was also some enthusiasm on tho
Kentucky side, hut as wo neared Guy
nndotte on the Virginia shore warn
ings came to us from both sides of
the river that Capt. Jenkins, guerrilla,
had a force massed near Guyandotte
to attack us.
"The boats were tied together, the
men were massed on tho upper deck,
each man proud of the ono rartrldgo
given into his rare, and we moved for-
ward to attack. Think of it! One
cartridge to a man, and ail the men
exposed to artillery or rifle fire. As
the sun went down we moved slowly
to the Jenkins landing. And no soon-
er had the boats touched the landing
than a thousand men were on Bhore
eager for fight. Fortunately, Jenkins
and his men were not there and we
escaped slaughter. If the Japs moved
on the Russians as we did then thuo-
sands of them would be killed.”—Chi-
cago Inter Ocean.
A Useful Outpost.
Speaking of alertness on picket
there was a ease of nonalertncss In
the McMinnville campaign that took
the cake. Gen. Nelson was In com
mand, and. as Bragg was making
feints all along the line preparatory
to his grand flanking movement, the
orders for outposts were very strict
A detachment from the Thirty-fifth
Indiana was on outpost duty on
one of the main roads leading south
from McMinnville. Scouting along
this rond I came upon a Boldier sit-
ting upon some rails cleaning hia
musket. Ho had taken his gun apart
and the pieces were scattered about
He was very much In earnest and
was doing a thorough Job. I thought
it was a queer place to clean n gun
and asked him how far It was to the
picket line. “It is here. I am on out-
post." Just as I ejaculated “the hell
you are." who should come dashing
up but Gen. Nelson and stnff and tho
field officer of the day, Lieutenant
Colonel Frank P. Cahill of the First
Kentucky. I wns nsUnri some leading
questions by Cahill, and wa* asked
nlso how fnr it was to the outpost
I pointed to the man sitting on the
rails, who. proud of distinguished
company, was ostentatiously putting
his gun together.
Oen. Nelson urged his horse nenrer
to the outpost snd asked: "Do you
know who 1 am?" The absorbed gun
cleaner said he did not, and Nelson
thundered, "I am Gen. Nelson, sir.

The Military Telegraphers.
In a report favoring tho extension
of pension privilege to the operators
who manipulate! the keys of the mili-
tary telegraph during the civil war.
Senator Scott, of West Virginia, has
related sumo interesting incidents of
the service, which enabled the armies
and parts of armies to keep in com-
munication with each other and which
enabled President Lincoln to be in
touch with all his generals.
Throughout the war there were, all
told, 15,000 miles of wire operated by
the army telegraphers, and the service
cost the government about J3.000.000.
Twelve hundred operators were em-
ployed. and the report lays consider-
able stress on the fact that although
these operators knew ail the secret
orders emanating from the various
headquarters and from Washington,
directing the movements of troops,
not one of them ever betrayed hia
During the operations in front of
Atlanta, in 1864. twenty miles of vire
was kept in operation twenty-eight
days by at moat as many operators,
half of whom were exposed to the
enemy's fire while at work at their
At New Orleans, says the report
the operators and linemen were not
only in danger of being shot, hut
risked their lives almost daily in the
surf In trying to keep the submarine
part of their system in working or-
der. •
The active service of the operators
practically came to an end when they
rushed a line of wire to Appomattox
over which the news of Lee's surren-
der was received at Washington with-
in two hours after the event.
