A Patriotic Woman

--We understand there was a woman here the other day in search of a recruiting officer to enlist her husband in the army. She told a city official that she could recommend him as a brave man, for he whipped her every day, and he would, no doubt, make a good soldier.-- New Albany Ledger.
