THE SGRANTON TRIBUTE SATURDAY M CRNINC, JAjtfUATtT Iti, 1SD7.

I found It neither ti pleasant nor an
easy' task to force my way through the
undergrowth which nourished In such
thick and tangled fashion, and the
Hinarting of my wound, slight though
the latter was, for the hall had metely
cut the llesh of my wrist, contributed
to both my bodily and mental Hiirfeilng.
The fulnt Jlashes of summer lightning
in the hot June night gave brief and
imperfect glimpsei of masses of low,
scrubby trees, with Inteilaclng bushes
uud briars, and an occasional pool of
dirty and decolored water, rimmed in
ly the Virginia mud, sticky and yellow,

tlu clumps of bilais that caught me, as
1 blindly plunged forward. Two hours
of muli work and, with the feeling of
delight that a shlpwieclced sailor must

In-art I encountered the tolls and dep
rivations of the advance. 1 had the en
thiiM.isiu of youth, and was daunted by
no obstacle. I did not fear the fever
bred In the swamps of the Uhicka
lmrriiiiy. which cut down our men as If

imj s artllleiy. I did my share, and
twin- my share, of the w oik which tiles
a soldier miiio than lighting. I tool:
Mi ax and helped to build loads tluough
the swamps, and bildges over the swol
h n stieains. Then I tugged at the
'wheels of the cannon stuck In the mud,
and at night I did picket duty in the
lU-iiKe forests, and sometimes, In the
darkness, heaid a confcdeiate bullet
hiss by me. Hut all the time we weie
diet-rnl by the knowledge that we were
aduiin lug. We thought of nothing
but foiwaid, forwaul, and our lianl-
shlps weie foi gotten in the reflection
that at each sunset up weie neaier to
tin enemy's capital.
Tlii- reverse side of tho plctuie had
come (illicitly enough, I thought, as
I stumbli d Into the miry edge of a
small biook that ran across tho path.
Tlii prize was almost within our hand.
1 had even seen, one bright morning,
the spiles of Richmond glittering In
the sunshine and then we were tinned
back. For a moment I felt a regiet
that I had not been taken prisoner by
tin im my In the last battle, when I
was cut off from my regiment, Instead
of escaping through their lines to
struggle among the woods as best I
could, in the effott to join the retreat

pation" had made the repulse the more
The voices of the night repeated tho
word, retreat, retreat, retreat. The
vi ry shells that sang over my head had
but one tune, and it was retreat, ic
treat, retreat. The plashing of the rain
formed the same sound, and I began to
u-pi-ut It to myself as a kind of chorus.
At last I saw a light, far ahead and
fnint, but very cheerful In the daik
ness and rain. I was sure that I had
overtaken a portion of our rear guaid,
but, as 1 came neaier, I saw that It was
a house standing In a small clearing,
and the light came fiom one of the
windows. There weie no pickets about,
no evidences of encampment, and I
knew that our men were nut near.
Evidently It was occupied by a family
which, more feuiless thun otheis In
that region, hnd not taken Itself from
this battle ground and gono to Rich

up to the door and knocked lightly on
it with the muzzle of my rllle. I re
peated the stloke two or three times
before a man's voice called out and
asked who I was. 1 replied that I was
a Union soldier who had been cut off
from his command, and wished to ob
tain Insinuation that would guide him
to the urmy.
At first he refused entianco to mo,
saying that the Yankees had found
their own way into Virginia, and could
llnd It out again.
1 replied that I was sick and wound
ed, and appealed to the hospitality of
lrglnlans, who boasted that they nov

must have been satisfied that I was nut
dangerous, for 1 know that I did not
look like It, although. I was by no
means a pretty llgure. I was wet and
bediaggled, but the rain had not
washed all the yellow mud off me, and
on my uniform there weie still streaks
of the blood that had llowed from my
wounded wilst. He Invited me to en

lie seemed to be a Virginia farmer of
some cultivation, for his language was
not bad. in one corner sat a woman
of about -10, evidently his wife, who
held In her aims a little girl of three or
four years, with .beautiful, long yellow
curls which at once attracted inv no
tice and admiration. My countenance
must have expressed these feelings, for
both the man and woman softened to
ward me, and the latter volunteered to
bind up my wrist, while the former
stated that some of our troops had
passed only an hour befoie.
While the woman was putting the
bandage on my wiist the man brought
me something to eat, though lie said the
piovlslons In the house weie scanty,
and he had much rather give them to a
Confederate than to a Federal soldier.
They avowed their Confederate senti
ments, and gloiled In them, exulted
over our letieat, knew the enemy weie

would be annihilated within a few days.
As I was leeching their hospitality, I
did not caie to dispute these points
with them, but asked why they had re
mained In such an unsafe place, when
a cannon ball might come crashing
tin ougli their house at any time.
' The man replied that he did not like
to abandon his home,ns he had now here
else to no, and that he did not antici
pate any danger.
Again 1 did not care to differ with
him, and I merely uttered some com
pliments about the pretty little girl nnd
her beautiful yellow hair, which caused
the mother's face to Hush with pride.
I warned them to keep the child out
of danger, as Hying bullets might bo
numerous In that vicinity, hefore long,
and the father repeated that theie was
nothing to fear.
I finished oatlncr the food that they
had placed before me, thanked them,
kissed the little gill, and followed once
more the path of the rett eating army,
whose rear guard I overtook In encamp
ment not an hour later.
The sun shouldeied his golden disk
above the horizon the next morning,
and Hooded the earth with yellow sun-
shine, Tho rain drops dried up, the
grass and foliage turned to a deeper
green, and tie despondency that 1 had
felt during the night passed away be
fore the glorious daylight. We lay upon
the heights, and the army had tinned
ut lust. We faced the enemy once moie,
nii(l there, expectant and confident, we
awaited his onset, for we knew that ho
would come, and we believed that we
would heat him back. The army was

transformed, The men lnughcd and,
when discipline allowed, shouted to
each uther. Many of the wounded
begged the privilege of taking a place
In tho ranks, and there was no need
for the olllcors to uxluijt the troops,
and endeavor to excite their courage.
Secure In their position, they had all
the aidor. of battle, and awaited with
Impatience the coming of tho enemy.
My regiment was stationed In the
front rank. The privations and bitter
feelings of the previous night Were for
gotten, and I paid no notice to the
trilling wound on my arm, for like the
others I was anxious that we should
beat the enemy back, and repay him
for some of the losses that he had In
flicted upon us.
Hefore waiting long, we saw Confed-

orate troops debouehe from some woods
about a mile distant. We watched them
for a little while, and then, us f had had
some experience In scouting, the colonel
sent me foiwaid to Join our sklrmlsheis
and bring a repoit to him, I advanced
among the locks and bushes, until
within a few hundred yards of the
enemy. I stooped down behind a large
lock and watched their movements.
Within the edge of the woods I could
see the house at which I had stopped
dining the previous night, and I won
dered if its Inmates had taken me at
my woid, and had gone.
While I was watching, a shell HeiV
over my head, struck the ground near
the confederate tioops, and exploded.
Di:i'etl came another, and it alighted
among them, causing gieat confusion.
One man was killed, as I could plainly
see, and seveial otheis weie wounded.
They withdrew irr haste und much dis
order. Some of them came back. I sup
posed they weie trying to leeover the
body of the dead man, but wondered
why they should take so great a llsk
for so slight an object, slight, at least In
war. and upon the eve of a gieat battle.
They were a shining maik for our bat
teries, and again the shells came Hy
ing towaid them, tearing up the earth
around them and cover inn them with
They retreated, hut In a few minutes
returned again to be driven back as be
fore by the shells. I could not under
stand such obstinacy, but, as I had
more serious work to do than to dis
cover the cause, I continued my re
connolssance, and moved off to the
right. The confcdeiate tioops remain
ed stationary at the edge of the woods,
and 1 had plenty of time for my duties.
About an hour later I started
back to my regiment. On the way I
met another of our skirmishers, and
told him about the little episode of
the Confederate tioops and the shells.
"T can explain that," he replied. "A
curious thing happened over there. We
captured some prisoners a short while
ago, and one of them told us about It
A man with his wife and child lived In
that house in the- edge of tho clearing.
The man persisted in lemalnlng until
the last moment, although he saw our
troops massed on the hill. He did not
get out until the Confederates them
selves came, and even then they had to
huiry him away. At that time the
shells struck, and In the confusion the
child disappeared. The tioops, instead
of coming back after the body of the
dead man, came for her, but they did
not Hnd her."
I went on and delivered my report to
the colonel, but I thought much, on the
way, of the child. What would become
of her? Doubtless she would be found
alter the battle, ridden over by the
cavalry, or torn to pieces by a cannon
Heavier masses of the enemy now Is
sued from the woods, and It was evi
dent that the battle was at hand. For
some time there had been a lively 111 -Ing,
but this was to be the great trial
of otiength. The Confederates formed
batteries In the woods behind their In
fantry, nnd leplled to our Hie. A can
non bull struck In the earth about ten
feet from me. Another went over my
head and killed a man In the rear rank.
A mlnle bull broko the colonel's sword
sheath. It was getting very uncom
fortable. I was willing to fight, but I
did not like , waiting, and anxiously
watched the dense columns of the en
emy who weie moving toward the hill,

All our batteries weie turned upon

platoons of the advancing enemy were
swept away, but the otheis never paus
ed nor hesitated. As I stood with my
gun In my hands, my admiration for
their courage was unlimited, Many of
them were In their shirt sleeves, as 1
have often seen the Georgians and MIs
slssipplans light, but they came on a
run over the broken ground, and seemed
to fear the lain of shot and shell im
more than a boy would a snowball.
Even In moments of greatest dunger
and excitement, the mind often invol

Then I fell to watching individual
soldiers, for they were near enough for
us to discern their features, whenever
the clouds of smoke blew aside. I was
particularly attracted by one who was
coming straight toward me. The fierce
ness of his appearance indicated the
soldlerwho loved fighting for lighting's
sake. He wore neither coat not waist
coat, and his long, blacli hair fell par
tially over his half wild fu-.e. He waved
his gun above his head, and Joined In

cinated by the appeal anee of the Con

that soldier. When the command to
lire should be given, 1 determined to
discharge my gun at him. If he over
reached us, I felt sure that ho would
kill me. I wondered If ho would be shot
down by tho artillery befoie our turn

that had concealed him, and, when It
drifted aside, lie was still rushing on at
the head of the enemy. Once he stumb
led and fell upon his knees, and I was
sure that he was shot, but he had
slipped on a stone or something else,
and In a moment iccovered himself,
and came on again. Halls, grape shot
and shells tore the ranks around him,
but he was untouched and came
straight as the lllsht or a hawk to
1 felt sure that I would have to shoot
that man, or he would have my own
life, and I deliberated whether to aim
at his head or his heart. At length I
decided upon the head. A curl of his
hliirk hair fell down upon the left side
of his forehead, and, I would shoot
straight between the end of that curl
and into his head. I wondered If my
nerves would remain steady, and I
could hit so small a maik amid the
great noise and confusion. I even held
out one aim to see If it shook, but not
a muscle quivered.
The colonel now gave the prelimin
ary command, and I knew that the one
to lire would come next. I leveled my
gun, and looked for my Confederate.
There he was, as betoie, directly oppo
site me. The black cuil still hung over
his left eye and offeied a fair mark.
They had now leached a little pateli of
bushes that fringed the base of the
slope. 1 sighted at tho black curl, and
my hand felt for the trigger while I
awaited the older- to lire.
An exclamation fiom the man next
to me startled me and dlsarianged my

She came out of the bushes which
hud concealed her, and, running mid
way between our lines, and thnse uf the
advancing enemy stopped, evidently
too much terrified to move arry fur
ther. She was dliectly between me
and the Confcdeiate soldier with the
black curl. In a few moments he would
be upon her, I felt a thrill of sympathy
for the child alone on the battle Held,

ami at the same time a desire to save
her. 1 wonders il what the Confederate
would do when he leached her, for I
had come to the conclusion that he
would not fall unless I .shot him. Woulu
he msh on over her? Would he trum

The child may have cried out with
fear, but I euuld not hear her, for tho
roar of the battle lllled my ears, and I
was watchlni; the wild-looking; Confed
erate. A Unlit wind blew the smoke
at that point aside, anil I could see dis
tinctly. She turned her face toward
the Confederate, and a beam of sun
llffht fell upon her hair. I glanced up
and down our ranks. 1 could see, by
the look of apprehension on the faces
of our men, that all had noticed her,
and the muzzles of many guns had
fallen, as mine had.
The dark Confederate was almost up
on the little one. Evidently he had not
perceived her, for the ardor of battle
shoie undiminished upon his face, and
again he waved his nun over his head,
a thins which boldlers never do In n
charBC, unless they are much excited,
Another step would bring him to her,
and at this moment I think that for tho
first time he perceived the frightened
face and the yellow hair.
Tho soldier dropped his gun by his
side. The fierceness went out of his
countenance, and he stopped. The
whole lino stopped with him, and those
behind coming upon the wull of their
comrades were brought also to a halt,
Ho let his Bun fall to the ground,

The roar of the battle field was ic
placed by a silence that would have
been complete had It not been for the
gtoans of wounded men, and I knew
that thousands of eyes were strained
upon tho boldler and tho child. 1 looked
at tho man next to me. lie seemed ob
livious of the conflict. I looked at our
colonel, but he had foi gotten the com
mand to lire.
The soldier bent his head and kissed
tho child, and then lifted her high ovel
his shoulder and handed her to the
ninti behind lilm. Then we could see
her passed lapldly from rank to rank,
until In a few moments the frightened
face and yellow hair had disappeared
'toward the wood, and she was In safe
ty. The soldier seized his gun, uttered
the lebel yell, and came on again with
line after line chaiglng behind him.
Our colonel shouted flic!" and the vol
ley blazed from our lilies. At the same
moment a hundred cannon from the
.summit of the hill poured a torrent of
lead and Iron upon the chaiglng bat
talions, and the batteries of the enemy
leplled. The earth shook ns If In the
throes of an earthquake. My ears weie
deafened by the uproar, and thick
clouds of Moating smoke hid the daik
soldier and his companions.

of the possibility
of sudden death
by violence or ac
cident. There is n
ror attached to
such a death that
prefer the crim
monster irr almost
any other guise.
Yet all the lives that are lost each year by
violence and accident arc but an insignifi
cant fraction to the untold thousands that
ore slain by the grim destroyer, consump
tion. It is the most insidious and the dead
liest of all known diseases. It knows neith
er rank nor wealth. It attacks people in al1
the walks of life. It makes no distinctions,
It lias for centuries been considered incur
able. It is not.
An ulmost tmfailitiR cure for consumption
is found in Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis
covery. It acts directly upon the lungs and
also corrects the aggravating cause of the
disease. Jt cotrects all disorders of the di
gestion, invigorates the liver and makes the
assimilation of the food perfect, thus nour
ishing and strengtheniut: the system for its
battle with its relentless foe. It fills the ar
teries with the rich, pure blood of health.
It builds new, healthy tissue in the linn's
and drives out all impurities and disease
germs. It cures qS per cent, of all cases of
consumption. Thousands have testified to
their cures. All druggists sell it.
" I was taken sick in February, 1887, with ty
phoid pneumonia," writes Mrs. Henrietta Hart,
of Voorliccsville, Albany Co., NY "I then had
a miscarriage. I did not leave- my bed to sit in a
chair till the first of June. I had medical care nil
that tii.ie. I was so weal: I could not turn in bed
alone. The doctor said lie could do no more for
me. I was coiiRlilug and mising ami was almost
dead with consumption. lg.-neup to die. Hook
seven bottles of Dr Pierce's Golden Medical Dis
covery ami ' Favorite I'rexcription ' together (not
seven of each), and I was then able to do my own
homework for mv family of four. In lc3 than
three years from the time I bewail your medicine,
I gave bitth to a healthy baby girl that weighed
eight pounds. I have had two children since,
and am enjoying jood health now."
Pretty eyes, bright, snappy and full of fire
and life. Constipation ni-ikes the blood
inipme, and the eyes get dull and heavy,
glazed and listless. Dr. Pierce's Pleasant
Pellets cure constipation speedily and per
manently. They never gripe. They are
tiny, auti-bilious, sugar-coated crannies.
