shoes. I will feel like a lady once more, with good shoes on my feet. I expect the poor Yank is glad to get away from Anderson on any terms. Although matters have improved somewhat with the cool weather, the tales that are told of the condition oution to fall upon us for letting such things happen. If the Yankees ever should come to South-West Georgia, and go to Anderson and see the graves there, God have mercy on the land! And yet, what can we do? The Yankees themselves are really more sday Misses Caro and Lou Bacon spent the day with us, but I could not enjoy their visit for thinking of the poor boy, Anderson, who has been sent to jail. He implored me — to beg missis to forgive him, and I couldn't help taking his part, though n account of this silly April-fooling. I don't think I ever enjoyed a day more in my life. It began happily, too, with Anderson's return from jail early in the morning, and peace-making with his missis. I expect we were all as glad of the poor dar

there for the train to Cuthbert. The hotel was so uninviting that we stayed in the car, putting down the blinds and making ourselves as comfortable as we could. Capt. Warwick, who is stationed there, was very kind and attentive. He paid us a call in our impromptu parlor, and made some of his hands bring in buckets of water and sprinkle the floor to cool it off a little. Just before the train arrived on which we were to leave, there came one with 1,100 Yankee prisoners on their way from Anderson en route for Florida, to be exchanged. This was a mistake. The Confederacy having now practically collapsed, and the government being unable to care for them any longer, the prisoners remaining in the stockade were sent to Jacksonville, where the Federals were in possession, and literally forced back as a free gift on their friends. The guard fired a salute as they passed, and some of the prisoners had the impudence to kiss their hands at us-but what better could be expected of the

any. I never was so tired in my life; every bone in my body felt as if it were ready to drop out, and my eyes were so heavy that I could hardly keep them open. I don't find doing housework quite so much of a joke as I imagined it was going to be, especially when we have company to entertain at the same time, and want to make them enjoy themselves. By the way, Mrs. Jordan says I was right in dusting the top shelves first, so the laugh is on the other side. After dinner Mrs. Jordan and Mary Anderson wanted to do some shopping, and then we went to make some visits. On our return home we met Dick and Emily, with their children, at the'front gate, going out to begin life for themselves. All their worldly possessions, considerably increased by gifts of poultry, meal, bacon, and other provisions-enough to last them till they can make a start for themselves, besides crockery and kitchen utensils that mother gave them, had gone before in a wagon. Dick's voice trembled as he bade me goo

definitely what has happened to oneself. Soon after arriving in Boston, I opened a Boston newspaper and came upon a column headed: Tickings. By tickings we are to understand news conveyed through the tickings of the telegraph. The first ticking was: Matthew Arnold is sixty-two years old --an age, I must just say in passing, which I had not then reached. The second ticking was: Wales says, Mary is a darling ; the meaning being that the Prince of Wales expressed great admiration for Miss Mary Anderson. This was at Boston, the American Athens. I proceeded to Chicago. An evening paper was given me soon after I arrived; I opened it, and found under a large-type heading, We have seen him arrive, the following picture of myself: He has harsh features, supercilious manners, parts his hair down the middle, wears a single eyeglass and ill-fitting clothes. Notwithstanding this rather unfavorable introduction, I was most kindly and hospitably received at Chicago. It happened that I had a

seemed strange to ask a page to find Mr. Browning for me, as if it were the easiest thing imaginable; and it reminded me of the time when the little daughter of a certain poetess quietly asked at the dinner-table, in my hearing, between two bites of an apple, Mamma, did I ever see Mr. Shakespeare? The page spoke to a rather short and strongly built man who sat in a window-seat, and who jumped up and grasped my hand so cordially that it might have suggested the remark of Madame Navarro (Mary Anderson) about him,--made, however, at a later day,--that he did not appear like a poet, but rather like one of our agreeable Southern gentlemen. He seemed a man of every day, or like the typical poet of his own How it Strikes a contemporary. In all this he was, as will be seen later, the very antipodes of Tennyson. He had a large head of German shape, broadening behind, with light and thin gray hair and whitish beard; he had blue eyes, and the most kindly heart. It seemed wholly appropriate

he remainder of their lives in Greenville county, the latter living to be nearly a hundred years old. The mother of Major Anderson was Mary Terry, who survived her husband a great many years, dying at the age of seventy. Four sons of John and Mary Anderson served in the Confederate army: James, John, David and George W. James died in 1863 from sickness contracted in the service; John was captured at the fall of Petersburg and died from the effects of his treatment on the boat while on his way te of the war. He was in the battles of Drewry's Bluff, and shortly afterward detailed as a courier for Gen. G. T. Beauregard, serving as such for some time, after which he returned to his command, and participated in the battle of the Crater. Major Anderson located in Williamston, S. C., in 1868. As a merchant after the war he was very successful and was able to retire in 1886 with a fine estate. He was married, February 21, 1860, to Miss Nancy Narcissus Nesbitt, who still survives. They have

a voice of great expression of feeling. He was born in Somerville and later moved to Boston. He displayed a taste for singing when very young. He spent many years in Germany and Austria, where he became a celebrated opera singer. The Emperor of Austria frequently requested Mr. Adams to sing before him and his friends at Vienna, and Mr. Adams brought home to America a laurel wreath presented him while abroad. Antonio F. de Navarro received reflected glory by his marriage(1889) with Mary Anderson, the beautiful actress. We mention him because he was a pupil at the A. K. Hathaway private school on Chestnut street, where there were many students of Spanish extraction. (The school lasted from 1846-1860.)

It was advocated by Messrs. Myers and Robertson, and opposed by Messrs. Duckwall and Yerby. On motion of Mr. Kincheloe, the House adjourned.
