did not blame him for having nothing
to do with his shiftless brother. Ho
lived In n lino house In New York;
was enterprising and shrewd: how
could anyone blame him for dropping
this ne'er-do-well brother?
Ills brother thought differently.
Lemuel was rich: fate had boon good

that ho had never offered to help htm
especially when this nddotl burden waj

a girl? Clrls were of little line. Had
she born u buy hit' she was not a
boy and she wns motherless from tho
time she wns three weeks old.
With u pathetic appreciation of the
fltnes of things her mother named
her Dolores. And from the lime she
wns taken from the dlng mother's
arms her large brown eyes Minded
by long curling lushes looked out upon
tho world with a strange gravity and

She seldom cried. She nrver cooed

as she grew older silence grew upon
her. She snld Utile and the neighbors
seldom ran In to gossip with her us they
did with each other for thero was
no use; she took no Interest In them
or their gossip; no one could talk
easily with her eyes upon them. So
when she grew old enough to attend
to the household mnttors herself they
left her alone; oven the children of
her own age dropped her as though
she hud been dead.
She was an excellent conk and kept
tho house well. In Ihoso things her
lather had no fault to find. He sel-
dom spoke to her; If tho food were
well cooked ho never found fault; ho
never praised It or her; ho ato his
meals in silence and went out of tho

marked nn nrmy officer "but more
particularly are they tho enemies of
nn army officer. They take great de-
light In finding reasons whv tho-
should not pass an officer's accounts
anil take advantage of the least little
technicality or any possible way of re-
fusing to do so. Some time ago an old-
cer to get n Just claim that has been
turned down by the auditor or con-
troller was compelled to go to con-
gioss and the printing bill for the
amount was four limes ns large as the
amount in the first Instance."
Gen. Weston got the best of an au-
ditor when he was In the Seventh
Cavalry and this is the way he tells
"I was on a horse board at Kansas
City and before n horse could be ne.
copied he was rent a mile at a very
fast clip lo test hla endurance. I ob-
served that the men who wero soiling
the horses had a rider who would take
It-cm behind a clump of trees where I
mold not see and shortened the dis
tance. I decided to ride the horses
myself and tried about twenty a day.
I would get pretty well warmed up
with tiat kind of work nnd I went In
aMtrward and took a bath. I charged
up the bath each day In my expenses.
Rut tho account came back from the
uudltor with the Indorsement:
" "One bath a day Is n luxury not a

poor riddled body exerted thmselves

arm was shut off his left eye. was
destroyed several ribs wero cut In

to count bullet holes.
"In addition to this record at Get
tysburg. Chase dlstliiRulshejl himself
on other occasions and received two
medals for braverj-. He was given a
pension of $40 a month. Hut on ono
occasion he met a Congressman from
tits old district In Maine who Insisted
that $40 a mouth was not enough and
promised lo have It Incresacd. The
Congressman brought the case to the
attention of the pension committee

committee remarked 'Well I guess
we will have to rnlse his pension to

Congressman. 'Why IJIack what are

$10(1 n month and $3000 a year be

In favor of the larger pension. The
bill went thiough both Houses with a
rush. President Cleveland signed It
and since that IIhih Chain has rn.
