Members of the National Association
of Civil War Musicians ut up like hovs
at their reunion Tuesday at the Jeffer
son school. After swapping yarns they
all turned in with fife and drum and
soon the strains of favorite quick-teps
floated out of the -open windov**.
"Gtulderoy," "White Cockade" of
revolutionary days, "Paul Severe's
Bide, or Jefferson and Liberty,"
"Larry O'Qaff," "The Girl I Left Be

"Dashing White Sergeant," -"Haste

Boston" followed in fuick succession.
The veterans were practicing for the
parade today, which Ihey led. Oray
haired men became boys again and the
soldiers who were not behind fife and
drum were soon keeping step*ito flbe
music of *81.
Except for loss of some of the knack
of folding the drum sticks, few of J*
musicians would admit that they nad
lost in skill. Having learned the prin
ciples of the music, all they need, they
say, is to have a little practice.

Wisconsin's famous 29th infantry
held a reunion in the Jefferson school,
numbering about 200 members and
friends, including all of the 44th regi

A. Holmes of New London, captain of
Company F, presided. The afternoon
was spent in reminiscence. One of the
old officers present was Ilentenant

It was suggested by Malar Bushnell
of Minneapolis that some sort of an
organization be formed and the names
of all living members of the regiment
will be sceurcd'if possibki.
The commanding officer of the 29th
was Colonel Charles Gift, now dead.
When he returned home he was suc
ceeded by Colonel Green and then by
Cekieel Hnacoek. One of the hardest
fought battles for this regiment was
Port Gibson, where the most men were
lost. The regiment fought also at
Champion Hifi. Vieksburg, Siberian
Cross Beads and Spanish Fort.
Only a few members of the 44th had
arrived and they- mingled with the mem
bers of the 29th, so that it was a joint
occasion in which all joined without
reference to former organization. The
44th entered service late and its onlj,y

Given Pine Xros Veterans at
The survivors of the Sixth Maine in
fantry held a rennion at the Hotel Wa
verly yesterday, where they had been
invited to dinner by W. Cushing. The
leading officers of the regiment were
present. Colonel C. A. Clark, the de
partment commander of Iowa and Lieu
tenant Colonel C. H. Chandler of North
Dakota. Twenty-two members were
there, exchanging hearty greetings and
reminiscences of the times of '61 and
'65. The absence of many who were
prominent the years before was notice
able, and the older veterans spoke in
sorrowful terms of those who were
gone or who were so soon to go.
Worth AH the Journey.
"The pleasure of this afternoon alone
more than repays me for coming to this
encampment, taking a journey of 215
This wa sthe satisfied statement made
by Sam Farrell of Flandreau, 8. D.,
after the reunion of the Second Minne
sota infantry yesterday. I have met
boys that I have not seen since the war
and whom I never expect to see again.
I have seen comrades that served in
Company A with me and am going back
home happy. I for one think this is
the best reunion I ever attended, and
I have heard lots of others say the
Western Sharpshooters Meet.
Two old comrades gathered at the re
nnion of the Sixty-sixth Illinois yester
day afternoon in the women's waiting
room at the city haU. One was J. M.
Moody of Paris, HL, the other was J. E.
Maginn of Mexico City. Mexico, who,
with his wife, had come all the way to
the encampment. There are about a
dozen other veterans of this regiment
here and they hope to get together
some time this week.
The Sixty-sixth Illinois was a regi
ment of crack shots. It was generally
known as the Western Sharpshooters.
It was armed with sixteen-shot Henry
rifles. The men were dead shots and
their ability as skirmishers made them
dreaded by the enemy. They were in
action almost constantly thru the en
tire war and were in the van of Sher
man's march to the sea.
Seeking His Oonarades.
8. F. Deming, lieutenant of Company
B, Thirty-sixth Wisconsin, marched
thru the eourthonse yesterday shouting
"Is there any of the Thirty-sixth Wis
consin here?" His words were heard
all over the building and attracted the
attention of every veteran there, but
none of his regiment could be found.
He found several registered in the Wis
consin headquarters at the county com
missioners' room, and is BOW looking
for his comrades.

How Patriotic Poems Live
"The Southern Volunteer and His Northern Brother/'

And faced the fight with Lee

A picture entitled "The Southern Volunteer and His Northern Brother," in
which these two figures are represented as elasping hands, is displayed in numer-
ous Minneapolis store windows and advertised in The Journal The picture
and the advertisement, however, contain only a fragment of the verse which
created the occasion for this pieture. When the call was issued for troops at
the outbreak of the Spanish-American war Frank Stanton of the Atlanta Con-
stitution, the poet of the south, wrote the poem entitled A Southern Volun-
teer," and published it in the Constitution. When the Constitution came to
rand it attracted the attention of Mr. E. B. Smith, then of The Journal
staff, who will be remembered by readers of The Journal as at that time a
favorite contributor to this paper over the signature "H. Tims." Mr. Smith
wrote in response the poem entitled "His Northern Brother," which was print-
ed in The Journal. The New York Ledger picked up both these poems and
framed them in the original of this picture and started them on their rounds
among the newspapers of the country, where they were very generally printed,
as expressing the fraternal feeling between the old soldiers of the north and
south, stimulated by the response of both and the response of the sons of both
to the call of the president for troops in support of the American standards ia
the war with Spain. The verses are worthy of reproduction at this time, as ex-
pressing- the feelings of the old soldiers of both armies.

Just make It two, old fellow,
I want to stand once more.
Beneath the old flag with you.
As in the days of yore
Our fathers stood together
And fought on land and sea.
The battles fierce that made us
A nation of the free.
I whipped you down at Vieksburg^
You licked me at Bull Run
On many a field we strugled.
When neither victory won.
You wore the gray of southland,
I wore the northern blue
Like men we did our duty
When screaming bullets flew.
Four years we fought like devils.
But when the war was done
Your hand met mine in friendly
Our two hearts beat as one.
And now, when danger threatens.
No north, no south, we know.
Once more we stand together
To fight the common foe.
