Showing her colors.

--A gentleman from Cheat Mountain tells the following:

‘ A squad of Indiana volunteers, out scouting, came across an old woman in a log cabin, in the mountains. After the usual salutations, one of them asked her--

‘"Well, old lady, are you secede?"’ ‘"No,"’ was her answer. ‘"Are you Union?"’ ‘"No."’ ‘"What are you then?"’ ‘"A Baptist, and all' wys have been."’ The Hoosiers let down.
