four weeks ago to visit at the home of his

P. Cummins Post, G. A. R. Rev. Wm
Mullundore delivered the funeral ad.
dress in which he recited the military
record of the deceased.
Tobias Voder was born in Shade town
ship in 1SJ7 and was past seventy years
of age at the time of his death. He was a
thoroughly upright, conscientious, chris
tian man and was highly esteemed by all
who knew bun. lie was an uncompro
mising member of the Republicau party
and an ardent admirer of President Mc
Kiuley. Prior to the election last fall be
erected a campaign Hile near his resi
deuce from which floated the stars and
stripes. The last time he run the (lag up

He is survived by his wife and eleven
children, as follows: Henry II., of

Col born, of Bayard, W. Va.; Jacob, of

of Somerset township; Mrs. Kmni Bar
kett, of Somerset; Grant, of Waterloo,
Io.: Francis, of Somerset township; Sus
an aud Nina, who are, unmarried and
live at homo.
Tobias Yoder was one of four brothers.
all of whom enlisted in the Union Army
at the outbreak of the war. John was
killed in the army and Henry died from
disease contracted in the service. Moses
resides in Stonycreek township.
Iu addition to the wounds sustained in
the war Mr. Yoder subsequently met
with mishaps that would have killed
an ordinary man. (:i one occasion he
was run over by a band car on the S. .V
C. R. R., aud when examined by a phy
sician it was found that four or five of
his ribs had beeu broken. O.i another
occasion a coat mine iu w ni.-ti he was
working caved in, killing a dog lying by
bis side and requiring Herculbnian ef
forts on bis part to romove the slate and
earth under which he was embeddeiL
The following record of Mr. Voder's
military career was compiled for the
Waterloo Daily Courier.
Tobias Yoder had an army record
equaled by few soldiers and survived
wounds which not one man iu many
thousands could have lived through.
Prior to the rebellion be was noted as an
athlete and was the champion wrestler of
Somerset county. His parents owned a
timber farm of over two hundred acres
which was cleared in part by the Yoder
boys and wielding the ax, together with
the rough life of a woodsmati developed
the muscles of the sturdy Tobias and fit
ted him for the terrible ordeal which
destiny had iu store for him. Wheu be
was examined for enlistment the sur
geon's record shows that his chest meas
urement was 42 inches over the bare skin.
No more perfect specimen of physical
manhood, or braver warrior ever should
ered a musket Tobias was 31 years of
age when tiie war broke out, and, im
bued with the fire of patriotism he enlist
ed in the first company raised iu Somer
set county, Coinpauy A, KXh Pa., Re
serves, which was recruited by General
His regiment marched under Merid
ian's banner in the ill-fated peninsular
campaign against Richmond and it was
at New Market Cross Uoa.ls, in front of
Richmond, on the afternoon of June 30,
lsti, that Yoder received wounds which
would have instantly killed an ordinary
mortal. His coinpauy had beeu in the
thick of the fight tor several hours, and
was ordered back a short distance to
some timber to cleau their guns and re
ceive a fresh supply of ammunition.
Prior to this the buckle had been shot
from Voder's cap, aud a portion of the
skirt of his coat bad been carried away
by a fragment of shelL A number of the
company bad been killed or wounded,
but the balance after filling their car
tridge boxes went forward again. Mean
while the rebels changed position and the
brave Pennsylvauians inarch into a veri
table death trap. They were subjected
lo a cross fire from rebel regiments be
longing to Jackson's and Hill's corps and
Yoder was the recipient of seven bullets
which struck him in "less time than a
man could count five" to use his own
language. He did not fall but two cont
ra les started for the rear with him. The
Confederates charged and he told his
comrades to lay down and save them
selves which they did. Two balls passed
through his luugs, one crushing the left
shoulder blade, and causing the blood to
spurt from his mouth. Two struck him
in the side, one lodging under the hip
bone and the other close to his spine near
his kidneys; these two balls passed
through a rubber blanket which he car
ried iu a roll diagonally across his waist.
which checked their force, otherwise!
they would have gone clear through his
body and caused speedy death. The
other three bullets made bad wounds.
The tide of battle passed over him and
McClellan's retreat left him in Confeder
ate hands. The rebels cared for their
own wounded first, occasionally giving
Yoder a drink of water from a brook
which ran near by and tossing him a
corn pone when be asked for something
to eat. He lay thus with ut attention or
shelter until the afternoon of the third
day when a four horse team and large
wagon drove up within about twenty
fedtof him. Two big, strapping John
nies climbed down and asked Yoder if he
could get into the wagon without assist
ance. "I'm a little stiff," was his reply,
"but guess I cau make it if you give me
time." He bad raised himself up on one
knee but wasn't quite lively enough to
suit the fellows. They grasped him by
the collar aud legs "and pitched me into
the w agon like a hog," said Yoder in re
lating the story. "I lauded pretty hard,
but it didn't hurt me much and aside
from the cords in my left arm drawing
up from the broken shoulder blade, I
had suffered no inconvenience."
He was incarcerated iu Libby prison
and refused medical attention by bis
captors. Several Union surgeons were
in Libby at that lime, but they had no
instruments or supplies of any character
to dress bis wounds with. The most he
feared was that the maggots would get
into the wounds which were suppurating.
Noticing a hogshead of tobacco on the
sidewalk near the apartment in w hich he
was confined, be conceived the idea of
drawing a supply of this through the win
dow by aid of a window stop which he
loosened and which had a small nail in
one enjl. He managed to secure enough
tobbacco to successfully plug up the holes
in his body, but the theft was discovered
and he was reported by one of the guards.
For this "oQV.tso" be was placed iu soli
tary confinement in Bella Islo fir l'l
days, but would have got a longer sen
tence had he not provoked considerable
mirth when court-martialed by insisting
that he "drew the toliaeeo." After a
prison residence of forty days in which
he had Isllen away in weight from to"
I IH pon u. Is, Yoder was exchanged mid
sent to Chester hospital near Philadel
phia, where the snrg s ms pronounced bis
cise hopeless and told him lint he co:il
not live forty-eight hours. Ho did not
die, however, and bis case was consider
ed so remarkable that the siirgeon-in-chlef
of the armies at Washington was
made acquainted with some of the facts
and experts from the capital city went to
Chester where a complete history of the
case was taken down, the entrance aud
exit of the bullets noted, with the cir
cumstances of his capture and subsequent
treatment In January, lsivi Yoder was
allowed to go to his home in Somerset,
where he remained until March when
hearing tnat his regiment was in Wash
ington recruiting, he went to that place.
He asked to go on duty but was refused,
but undaunted he went with his company
when the regiment started to the front
again. He fought at the battle of Gettys
burg and when Lis enlistment expired
offered bis services, but was told that his
wounds would bar him from again enter
iug the army. "After I had stripped for
examination I kicked up my beels
and executed a little dance on my way
out of the room to show them how lively
I was," said Yoder aud this with his
earnest pleading not to be left behind
secured his acceptance. He remained in
the army until the close of the war and
was present at Lee's surrender at Appo
The official records of the rebellion
show that Voder's regiment, the 10th Pa.,
Reserves was roughly handled by the
enemy during the 7 -days' battles, from
June 2Uth to July 2, le, losiug 1 officer
and IK) eulistod men killed, 6 ollicers and
1.T7 enlisted men wounded, I officer and
55 enlisted men captured.
After the battle iu which Voder received
his wounds he was reported dead, his com
rades reporting that they had left him
alive, but that with the blood streaming
fmiu his mouth aud a dozen holes iu his
body he could not live an hour.
His wife donned widow's weeds. An
application had been made out asking
that the pay due him from the govern
ment be sent to her, when one day a copy
of a Richmond paper containing a list of
arrivals at Libby found its way to Som
erset and as M rs. Yoder was passing up
the street one afternoon, a friend came
rushing out of his house with the paper
in his baud, but the two words, "mortal
ly wounded" which appeared after her
husband's name robbed the news of what
little cheer it contained, for she supposed
that in his condition, iu hostile bauds, he
would endure a living death until the
real came to his relief.
Oue of the strangest features of this re
markable man's experience is that he
felt no pain whatever during the time
that he received the wounds and their
subsequent healing, and was able to eat
any food that be could socure. He seem
ed literally a man devoid of nerves or the
sense of feeling.
At the time of his death, although 70
years of age, he was bale and hearty, had
never lost a tooth aud every tooth iu bis
head was as sound as a dollar. The bul
let which lodged near his kidneys gave
him some trouble a few years ago and be
submitted to a surgical examination with
a view of having it extracted. The sur
geons informed biin that an operation
would be attended with great danger so
he concluded to carry the memento of
'Hi with auother ounce of lead which
lodged a few inches from it to the grave.
The brave old soldier has listened to
the last reveille and answered the final
roll call. It can truly be said that be
shed his share of blood in defense of his
country's houor and his name is entitled
to a high place in the list of the nation's

Aubnema A Dutch Corner Cure.
From the Bedford Inquirer.
A short time tince I visited in t he coun
try at a house where a twiu boy baby
five months old was sick of the whooping
cough. His little brother twin had lately
died of the disease, and he was an emaci
ated skeleton, racked by i most distress
ing cough, with apparently but a slim
prospect of recovery. But whilst there
is life there is hope, and bis mother and
relatives thought ho might struggle
through. Speaking of this hope to a
neighboring woman, she said. "No, I do
n4 think he can get well; liotli those
babies bail the take off ever since they
were a month old. The whooping cmgh
and the 'lake olP together w ill be loo
muck for him." This was a new name to
me. I did not want to display my ignor
ance and hesitated about making an in
quiry of the good woman, but I have
done so of others since, and the result is
information that is curious and may lie
It is singular what notions alxiut cur
ing diseases have possessed people in all
ages of the world. Sixty years ago blood
letting was prevalent for numerous ail
ments, and immense quantities of calo
mel were given. 40 or i0 grains at a dose.
Great barm was done by the regularly
graduated physicians of tlviso days if wo
believe the modern doctors. It is alto
gether probablo that the people of that
generation would have been Is'tter off if
they had had no doctors at all. They
killed more than they cured, doctors
now say. Perhaps the next generation
will say the same thing of the doctors of
to-day. Who knows?
Tho "take off" is a puny condition ol
a young child. Its fo-sl does not nourish
it It docs not grow but dwindles away
until it looks skeleton like. It is almost
!l head, and its faco is almost all eyes.
Its little arms and legs are like pipe-
stems, and its pinched features are piti
able to look at, and the doctor's medi
cine has been tried and does it uo good.
The doctor says it has dyspepsia, the old
women say it has tho "lake off."
Well can the "take otr Ik cured?
Why certainly it can according to tho
country-side lielief. Two or three years
or so ago a grandmother brought a small
child from C'umts riau.l to Bedford, hired
a carriage and took- tho bale six miles
out to the Dutch corner to old Mrs.
Reighard. The Cumberland doctors bad
doue the child no good. Death seemed
inevitable ULder their treatment and
M rs. Reighard cured the child iu one day
n the friends say. How was it done?
Well there's no patent on it She heated
nd old fashioned brick oven such as
used to bo common, and are still here
and there in use, just as if she was going
to bake bread, aud then greased tho nak
ed babe from the crown of its bead to the
soles of its feet, inclusive, with lard, and
wrapped it in and old blanket and put it
in the oven aud closed the oven all the
while the old woman mumbled to herself
iu Pennsylvania German and made mo
tions with her bands, as if she was con
juring some evil spirit. She put the
child in three times using the oven peel
and pushing it far back into the oven
p llled it out and put it in three times
c'.o.ing the oven door each time, and all
the while muttering and motioning with
her hands. And then she opened the
ilanket and the little fellow lay there as
red as a cooked lobster, and they rubbed
bim off and put him to bed and gave
him warm milk and the next day took
him back to Cumberland, and from that
hour ha began to mend and soon became
4 healthy child.

And tho peoplo believe in it, some of

With regard to tho succession the belief
is, that a woman cau only teach her art
to a iu in and a man can only communi
cate it to a woman. How much of the
virtue lies in the sweating and how much
in the words used and the mystic power
of the operator does not appear.
Medical superstition has been as wide
spread as humanity. There is found to the
farthest period of history and among all
nations down to the present time the
idea of supernatural intervention in caus
ing and iu curing diseases.
Witclicralt was lifinly believed in as a
dogma of religion which it was wicked to
doubt or deny. I'estileu res and epidem
ics were ascribe! t the wrath of God or
the m tlice of the devils, which modern
science has cboarly dom mstrated were
the results of improper m sles of lifo and
the violation of the laws of health. Dog
matic theology attempted for centuries to
thwatt scientific investigation as wicked.
But the world has moved steadily on
ward and upward. A part from the
Dutch words and the mystic three inser
tions of the babe, there remains the
sweating, and old citizaus of the Dutch,
corner by the score will attest the cures,

SATED TEEia EYES.
Pterygium en Both Eyes Cured.
Mr. Moses M.Taylor, Blackburn, West
moreland county, had a fleshy growth
from the inner corner of each eye grow
up over the pupil, blinding him so ho
could not work. Dr. Sadler, HH Penn
avenue, was consulted through Mr. Sam
uel Harris, whom the doctor had cured of
the same thing. M r. Taylor's eyes were
perfectly cured also.
Mr. Geo. Meyers, Springdale, Pa., bad
the same kind of growth, which had ad
vanced to the danger line. By the doc
tor's operation, by bis special method,
which after hundreds of trials bus never
failed, his eye is as perfect as ever.
The doctor is wonderfully successful in
all ear affections.
