Shortly boforo 8 o'cloelc on tho evening of tho

quarters with an nir about them that betokened
wtill-dofiucd (motives of eomo kind. Gen,
Falrchild was conversing with a few friends,
aud greeted his stall cordially, but with an air
or mystification that indicated a Blind o of per
ploxity as to tho causo or so unanimous a visit.
A largo number or other comrades and a dele
gation rrom tho Woman's Rolier Corps brought
up tho rear and tended to confirm the suspicion
that something was on foot not before an

themselves arouud tho Commander-in-Chief,

Gen. Fairchild was completely surprised at
tho presentation aud was visibly affected by
the testimonial of esteem thus offered by his
staff. Collecting himself, ho expressed his
thanks in a few graceful words. He said ho
was well aware that lie was undeserving tho
high pruiso couched in tho complimentary
words of Col. Cook. Of ono thing he was sure,
however, that such a gift would spur on any
mau's increased devotion to and efforts for an
organization by whoso representatives ho had
been so highly honored. Persistent efforts, ho
said, had been made to draw tho Grand Army
into politics, but happily they had been frits-
trated. As for himself, ho had chosen tho party
which ho believed to most truly represent tho
interests of tho Grand Army of tho Republic,
and ho had never had occasion to regret his
course. Ho would adhere to that party as long
as it was true to tho interests of tho great host
of veterans who had saved tho Nation in tho
hour of need, aud not a moment longer. Tho
General closed his remarks with a roitcration
of his thanks for tho souvenir, and with a wish
for tho long aud uubrolren prosperity of tho
Grand Army and all its members.
The badge presented to Gen. Fairchild is an
exact fac-similo of that prescribed by tho regu
lations, excopt that tho materials aro solid gold
and diamonds. The setting of jewels embraces
72 diamonds, all of tho very first wator, and It
is a perfect blazo or gems. It far surpasses iu
value any Grand Army badge ever before made.

.CoL Cook turned to Adj't-Gcn, E. B. Gray and
proceeded to present him with a magnificent
gold watch. Comrado Cook said that it afford
ed his comrades of tho staff as much plcasuro
in giving this present to Gen. Gray as it did
in giving tho badgo to their Commander-in-Chief,
for he merited as much credit through
his laborious and great work and 6crvico us

gentlemen having chargo of the display re
ceived many compliments for their cntcrpriso
in bringing such an excellent assortment of

An old colored veteran, wearing his Post
badgo, applied for accommodations at tho La
clede and Hurst's Hotels, but was repulsed.
Upon seeking information for quarters on tho
sidewalk, ho was met by an cx-Coufcdcrate,
who, in response to his questions, kindly took
him by tho arm, saying: "Uncle, come along
with mo; I'll show you whero you will havo
good quarters." And then tho two Kcn
tuckians, for such they wero provon to ho ou
comparing notes, wcut off on a Fifth-street car.
Quito an affecting sccuo took placo in Wash
ington Park, near tho headquarters tent
of tho famous Springfield (Mass.) battalion.
Mr. J. Fitzgibbon, a local builder, was walk
ing through tho park, when ho suddenly
rushed to the sido of Capt Sheohan of the bat
talion uud grasped him by tho hand. " Why,
Cousin .lim," bo said, " I never expected to 6co
you again." Both mon grasped each other by
tho baud and stood in tho drizzling rain for
several minutes in that position. They had
not met siuco tho close of the war.
Ono of tho pathetic incidents of the Reunion
was the meeting between Capt. O. F. Guthrie,
of this city, with his brother, T. E. Guthrie, of
Cedar Falls, Iowa, they not having metsinco
tho war. Capt O. F. Guthrio served in the
Confederate armj whilo his brother was in tho
Union service Both distinguished themselves
as fine soldiers, and aro held in high esteem by
their comrades. Whilo tho Confederate Guth

ance, tho "little ono" shows every ovidenco of
truo grit, and freely jokes his big brother as to
how "we uns did it to you uns."
Frank P. Blair Post got up a marching ex
cursion Friday morning, and did it in style.
They assembled about 150 strong at headquar
ters, with an escort of mounted police aud tho
Knights Templar band. They visited Lyon
Post first and then passed on to Ransom Post,
and wound up by paying their respects to Has
seudcubcl Tost Thoy presented a fine appear
anco and wero greeted everywhere with cheers.
About L"200 votcrans and their wives went
on an oxcursion Friday forenoon on tho steamer
Chouteau. After passing up stream to view
the great bridgo, from below, thoy went down
to Jefferson Barracks, where thoy looked ovor
tho famous scenes with which so many were
familiar during tho war.
There were over 200 Michigan veterans in
line, aud not a man left tho ranks from tho be
ginning to tho end of tho long, muddy march.
Gov. Alger, as Special Aid-dcCump to Gen.
Rutherford, the Stato Commauder, marched by
tho lattcr's sido the entire distance. Tho com
mand carried both of its fiags, and was chocred
all along tho lino of march. Past Department
Commanders Paul nnd Northwood were also iu
lino. It was doubly tho largest Michigan dele
gation that over participated in a National
parade. Gov. Luce reviewed tho Michigan
delegation from the balcony of tho St Jumes
Hotel, nnd tho veterans appeared very much
gratified for his presence

A Southern lady walked into tho Illinois
headquarters at thoLhidcll, carrying a beauti
ful wreath of flowers, to which hung a card
inscribed, "A tribute to John A. Logan, from a
Southern lady." Sho hung it beneath his pict

family during tho war.
Mrs. Lilo Rics, an aged nurso at Jefferson
Barracks hospital all through war timo, held a
reception for tho purpose of meeting somo of
tho patients she nursed in tho hospital. Sho is
74 years old, but is vigorous, nnd talks cheerily
of her ciiorts to add comfort to the sick and
dying during tho darkest period of tho Nation.
"Don't you know that all tho Grand Army
men aro fools?" said a stalwart Kansan, who
had been looking upou tho beer when it giveth
its foam in tho cup. " Yes, sir; just onco a

glorious old timo gcucrally. What is my namo?
I havo none; I am a tramp a United Stitcs
tramp. But I belong to the Iron Brigado, and
am proud of it"
A novel scene occurred on tho.blg bridgo. A
tall, gaunt veteran walked out to tho center,
and, whilo hundreds of peoplo wero passing,
commenced to disrobe. Beforo the polico dis
covered him ho was almost naked. Thiukiug
tho old veteran contemplated suicide, tho offi
cers rushed liko mad, and just as they retched
him ho threw his heavy pair or drawers aud
undcrbhirt down into tho river. " What do you
mean?" exclaimed an officer. "Waal," said
the old man, "my name's Jim Dorcas, rrom
Arkansaw. When I started for this Encatnn-
racut, my wife sho tclled rao as I was likely to
sleep in a hotel, I must wear drawers an' apjicar
liko other folks; an', hang it, she mado mo put
'cm on, but tho goll darn things havo been
a-itchiu' tho lifo outo' mo, so I jes' pitched 'em
off." Tho old man was so honest in what ho
said that tho polico allowed him to go uudis
turbod when ho had redressed himseir.
Tho banquet tendered by tho Southern Cali
fornia Brigade, G.A.R., to the journalists or tho
metropolitan press and other moro dis
tinguished individuals Wednesday night at tho
Armory Hall was a success. To havo been there
was only second in importance to having visited
"the glittering star on tho boarders or our
great West, where tho Pacific waves or old
ocean kiss tho yellow eands at tho Golden
Gate" It suggested a visit to tho Southern
coast or California, whero tho sun is said to
shino brighter, tho birds to sing more sweetly,
the flowers to bo painted moro beautifully, tho
zephyrs to blow moro softly ; whero ono peren
nial Spring dispels all glodiu and the 6oft, hazy
atmosphero so influences tho human system
that the inhabitants sometimes imagine they
havo found tho laud of the Firo Worshipers;
this only could compare with what greeted tho
eyes of the favored who received invitations to
tho banquet Mrs. C. C. Rainwater and other
officers of tho Woman's Christian Association,
superintended tho arrangements, which con
sisted of four tables 50 yards long, extending
from eist to west tho length of tho hall, with a

Thero wero 1,149 persons present.
Col. H. Z. Oaborne, of L03 Angeles, was Mas

aud had watched with great interest tho prog

wealth by others, for which ho helped lay tho
foundation beforo somo of them wero born.
Mayor Francis was next introduced, and wel
comed the Californians, as ho said, the second
