THE BUSINESS OF Tin: TENSIOK BUREAU.
To the Editor Katiojtal Tkibunt.:
I am proud to confess that The National
Tr.iiiUXK is one of the choicest and liveliest
soldier and family papers ever published on
this conrinont No other paper ever published
csceils it in our broad laud, I shall endeavor
to do what lies in my power to get as many of
the old, tried, and true veterans to subscribe
for it as possible.
There is a certain favor 1 wish to ask you to
do for the many pension claimants of this Con
gressional district and the State of Ohio. It is
as follows: Try to obtain from our highly
honored and respected Pension Commissioner,
AY. V. Dudley, the amount of pensions allowed
each month and their respective number, and
:ilso the number of the claims rejected, and
their original number, or either the first aud
last number of the claims, so that each and
every claimant may be able to know how near
his claim is coming to the kind examining
judges of the Pension Department. An cx
soldicr only this evening made the remark that
jf the highly-honored Editor of The National
Tkibuxi: would publish the amount of claims
granted and rejected each month, with their
respective numbers therein, that he and others
he knew of would subscribe for it, and besides
would do all they possibly can to promote its
Eucccss. Yours in F., C. & L.,
J. F. Holliger,

a touching reunion.
.. t' Editor National Tribune:
1 sh to communicate to your valuable sol-
,. t japcr a little incident to show how the
.- . organization will bring old Avar friends
i jctedly together, and thus renew old aud
i riendships that never cease in this life,
,r. e may trust, in the next. During the
rsr . uster of recruits in McCaslin Post last
.ay some dozen or fifteen recruits were in
'teroom awaiting their muster. Among
', ne a
ras Comrade S. II. Saunders, of company
rtecnth Illinois infantry, now living at
lie, Miami county, Kansas. The outer
as opened, and in stepped Comrade A. B.
c t, of company II, Fourteenth Illinois in
. Comrado Saunders looked' up and
rncd: "Why, Lostick, is that you?"
looked at Saunders and says: "Is this
2rs?" And the two comrades stood
ing each other's hands and looking into
ther's eyes, saying not a word, until their
t , , lied with tears and began flowing down
.:,. "r faces. The balanco of the "boys"
-in' 2d around them, and tears began to start
" a ong the line. Finally Bostick says:
' ", Saunders, have you any more to eat
- j re had in Andersonville?" This broke
t .;jell? aud a11 tho "oys" laughed outright
'he ridiculousness of the question, aud there
a general handsbakiugand congratulations.
r har comrades have been living within a
Vurt distance of each other for years, perhaps,
ilu-at knowing it. They had not met since
':e separated at Andersonville in 1SG1. Of
;;- ., this is only one of the many similar
meetings brought about by tho organization of
the G. A. K.
Very truly, yours, D. C. G.

get your petitions ready.
To tho Editor National Tribune:
Allow a subscriber to your excellent paper
space in the "Soldiers' Column" to ask tljc fol
lowing questions for the satisfaction of tho one
armed aud one-legged soldiers of the late war:
Was Senator Piatt, of Connecticut, a soldier in
the late war for the Union? And, if so, do you
believe that had he lost one of his limbs, either
an arm or a leg, that he would have objected
to the $-10 bill that passed the lower Blouse on
the 8th day of last June? We certainly can
not think that the gallant Senator has gone
back on tho boys " once in blue." We believe
that he, as chairman of the Senate Committee
on Pensions, will, at tho December session, re
port this bill favorably. It would bring joy
and gladness to the hearts of many poor crip
pled soldiers. Wo arc glad to know that with
tho aid of Tiie National Tribune and the
gallant John A. Logan, Voorhees, Ingalls,
Ferry, and many others, that a bold effort
will be made to pass this just bill at the
December session. Yours is the best soldiers'
paper in America, is keeping tho "boys" posted
on all legislation touching their interests. We
are beginning to know who our friends arc, and
we propose to vote understanding. " Boys, "
got up your petitions, and havo them ready
and pass them in at the next session of Con
gress. Let us make a square aud bold fight for
our long-promised rights. With a firm reliance
on your journal, we believe that the bill to in
crease the pensions of those who lost an arm
or leg will pass the Senate at its next session.
Bo of good cheer, comrades, and never despair.
Justice Avill bo done us soon.

WHERE RAW DOG WAS A LUXURY.
To the Editor National Tribune:
I am a warm advocate of your paper, and am
doing all I can to get up a club for it.
Ircad with great interest tho "Southern Pris
on Life" sketches. I was a prisoner myself for fif
teen months, being confined at Belle Isle, Libby,
Andersonville, aud Savannah, Ga. In no case
has tho writer overstepped the bounds of truth.
I was captured in a cavalry charge at Liberty
Mills, Va., on September 22, 1SG3; was taken
to Richmond and kept on Bell Isle till about
June 1, lSGi. Many froze to deatli during the
winter; others were tortured in the most bar
barous manner. I have seen men put astridoa
wooden horse such as masons use, say five feet
high, with their feet tied to stakes in the
ground, and there left for an hour or more on
a cold winter morning. Often their feet would
freeze and burst open.
A lieutenant's dog was once enticed over the
bank and taken into an old tent, where it was
killed and eaten raw. Your humblo servant
had a piece of it. For this act of hungry men
the camp was kept out of rations all day. Tho
prison was guarded by the famous Home Guard,
composed of boys and old men. Our rations
consisted of corn-bread, a piece about two and
a half inches squaTo to each man. Sometimes
they would give us a piece of raw bacon ; some
times, in lieu of that, wo would get boiled beef,
but in very small pieces. Bean soup was their
favorite food for us. The beans, or stock peas,
as they called them, were such as the cattle
would not eat. In June wo were shipped to
Andersonville, Ga., and of that prison you are
getting a very good description. Of course,
there were a good many prisoners, and in read
ing a report from ono you got only his views
and experience It is impossible for any man
to tell all that transpired ia prison. There
wcro places in Andersonville which I did not
visit; wo were so crowded, and it was too much
of an undertaking. Being a stranger there,
you might be attacked and robbed of tho
clothes you had on, if nothing else. Many
things are not mentioned, probably out of feel
ings of delicacy.
Now, who, for a moment, after suffering such
hardships as described in "Southern Prison
Life," can be, at the end of ouo year or fifteen
months, free from disease or half as good a man
as when he went in there? Kemember, there
was no shelter in Andersonville except for the
few lucky enough to get in with a blanket, and
this they had to prop upon four sticks to keep
tho sun off. Otlicis had to stand outsido and
take whatever came.
If it was an advantage to our Government
not to exchange prisoners, why are we not enti
tled to a pension as much as if we had received
wounds? As for my part, I would as soon be
with ono arm or one leg as to bo in the condi
tion prison life left me. 1 hope The National
Tribune will give our Congressmen such a
stirring up that they will see thatasoldier with
ruined health is as much entitled to a pension
as a man with ono arm.
Yours, truly, War. II. Wood,

"WISHES nE HAD SUBSCRIBED BEFORE.
To the Editor National Tribune:
I lately camo across a copy of your paper,
and thereupon, subscribed, and am highly
pleased with it. I only wish I had subscribed
three years ago, as I have since receiving it
learned much of value to me. I will get you
some subscribers. 1 hopo you will havo abun
dant success. I think, if I could have had The
National Tribune three years ago, I would
now have had my certificate all right. I am
eighty years old. I belonged to the Thirty
seven thlowa volunteers, the " Gray Beards."
Truly, yours, Almon Udell.
Bedford, Iowa, August 10.
THEY ALL WANT IT.
To the Editor National Tribune:
Don't stop my paper. The children are anx
ious to havo it read to them; the women hail
it with delight ; the minister, out of his meagre
salary, pays his $1 for it; tho merchants and
mechanics want it; tho farmers are clamorous
for it; and the soldier must havo it for, he
realizes in it a friend, indeed. Find enclosed
$1 for. The National Tribune for ono year.
May it continue to throw hot shot straight into
the raulcs of tho enemy, and at the samo time
pour in tho oil and tlie wine on the hearts of
the disabled veterans that have been wounded
in battle or hnvo lost thoir health through ex
posure in trying to save the Union. Many of
them have out-lived thoir means, and to-day
aro in destitute circumstances, aud they are
watching The National Tribune for the
names of Congressmen aud Senators that havo a
word to sav in their behalf.
Millard, Kan., August 10.
TnE BEST PAPER IN TIIE UNION.
To tho Editor National Tribune:
Please find enclosed post-ollicc order for $1,
for which please send The National Trib
une for one year from date. I hopo to see tho
day when every old soldier will be taking Tnn
National Tribune; for it is tho best paper
published in tho Union in the interest of the
soldiers. I hope you will continuo to give salary-grab
and bondholders shell and shot until
the soldier is paid for what he suffered in de
fense of our country's cause.
Yours, truly, W. 0. Curtis.

honor to whom honor is due.
To the Editor National Tribune:
Honor to whom honor is due. In your de
scription of the battle of Missionary Ridge you
speak of the color-bearers of the Sixth Ohio.
As a matter of fact it was tho color-bearers of
tho First Ohio. McLaughlin was a member of
the First, company I, and J. Stafford was
major of the First. I Avas acquainted with
three of tho color-bearers who fell that day at
tho storming of Missionary Ridge. Major
Stafford is still living, and in charge of the
Ohio Penitentiary, at Columbus. It was tho
First Ohio that first planted its colors on the
ridge, and wo suffered, perhaps, worse than any
other regiment. There was not an officer to
my knowledge that was not killed or wounded.

LIKES THE CHANGE.
To the Editor National Tribune:
I happen to be ono of your readers through
being a subscriber to the Union Veteran, but I
must say I like The Tribune tho best, and
before my paper runs out I shall havo it re
newed; in fact, don't stop it, but let me know
when the time runs out and I will send tho
dollar, if not before. I hopo you will push
that ex-prisoners of war pension bill in your
paper, and I also hopo you will advocate tho
arrears as well as pension, for if we are entitled
to anything wc most certainly are entitled to
the whole thing. I shall try and get you some
more subscribers and send them along, for I
think every ex-soldier should havo the
Tribune. B. E. Trim,
