At '.' o'clock the roads leading to the

It was while this vast multitude was

pense seemed to weigh down every
soul as tho representative rode
down the line. Silence brooded
over the same. All the iHiIsteronsness'
of the pant was gone now. Men had
no time for thought of aught else than j
the desperate race for :i home.
If ever the Ingeitultyof an American '
was put it a test It was here anil now.
The dominant idea was to lie llrst and
get tin best. There wus no friends to '
favor uinl no foes to shrink from In
