MAJOR SALMON
The Thrilling Experie
Civil
St. Louis
The sceDe at the Union Station last
Monday night, when the First Battery !
left for the South, awakened in many
of those present memories of the days
of the Civil War. Mingled with
those who witnessed such stirring
scenes for the first time, were veterans
of the war. The former listened
eagerly, while the latter leveled in
reminiscences, as they waited for the
train that brought the boys from the
Barracks.
In the crowd was Major Harvey
Salmon, of Clinton, Mo. Friends
were gathered around him. Stran
gers, jostled by the surging mass of
people, pricked their ears to hear war
stories.
"I was a youngster at the outbreak
of (he war," Major Salmon was heard
to say. "We Missouri boys who
wanted ts join the Confederate array
went in a very different manner from
what our brave lads are going to-day.
We had to steal our way through the
lines in the dead of night, on horses
that we picked up wherever we could.
Many a fellow was killed before he
got into ?he ranks aoross the lines,
and years after his bones were found
bleached to snowy whiteness io the
spot where his body was thrown by
those who had shot him down. We
found all that was left of a nephew of
mine in an old house. Eats had
gnawed the flesh off his bones; only
clothes identified him.
"My first engagement, you say?
There were so many of them I could
not tell just now which was the first,
hut I had an experience in the early
part of :the war that I will never for
get. I was with General Price at
Lexington, Mo., when he drove Mulli
gan inside the fortifications in Sep
I tember, 1861. The Federals had for
tified the town and it was rumored
about our camp that they intended to
surprise and rout us. The most stren
uous picket watch was kept night and
day. I was called out of a sound
sleep shortly after I had retired one
night in September and told to go out
beyond the second picket and keep
close watch. My instructions were to
shoot down the first man who hove in
sight and taeu retreat to the second
picket. It was one of those hazy au
tumn nigh ts common to that part of
the country. There was no moon, ;
but the stars twinkled through the
gleom, and every now and then one
fell, trailing a thin streak of light be
hind.
"One hundred and fifty yards from
camp alone and on a mission that in
volved the utmost vigilance was the
easiest task for. a youngster. My
brain was on fire with excitement. I
walked up and down a slender path,
from where I had an excellent look
out over the country, a fine, timbered
section, near Lexington.
"My eyes were strained out of their
sockets almost, and my ears must
have stood away from my head, so ea
ger was I to catch the slightest sound.
The leaves rustled in the wind, and
now and then a branch crackled under
the weight of a slumbering bird. I
imagined all sorts of thingo. The war
was young then, and we wern't sea
soned and hardened in experience. A
fellow's imagination gets very vivid,
and he is liable to see all sorts of
things that he is expected to see and
. watch out for.
"Loss of sleep, unusual excitement
and a feverish desire not to be caught
napping made me all the more fearful
of being trapped. Just as I was
turning at the end of the beaten track
I saw a man coming toward a fence.
I leveled my double-barrel, ready to
do as I was told, when the fellow set
his foot on the fence. I expected to
see him jump over the next minute,
but he seemed to hesitate. He may
be* watching me, I thought, looking
steadily at him and covering every
movement he might make with my
gun. I refrained from shooting only
because I did not want to raise thc
commotion which my shot would en
tail without being absolutely sure of
my business.
"It seemed to me that I stood for
hours glued to the spot. There was
that fence, that man with his foot on
it, ready to swing his body over, that
intense longing to shoot, yet a sort of
sober afterthought bidding me to wait
until he made another move. The
move never came.
"Gradually dawn crept over the
timber. At its faint rays I felt re
lieved. Now I would see my mau
more plainly. He, too, would see me
and do something more than rest his
foot on the fence rail.
"The stars withdrew one by one,
and all at once there was no fence, no
man-not even a stump that looked
like a man. My ?yes ached from the
strain of gazing at that one imaginary
object, peering through the darkness
to see it come toward me.
"Yes, it was an intense relief to find
that I had been mistaken, but it was a
matter of still greater congratulation
to me that I had not been beguiled in
to rousing the entire camp from its

peaceful slumber by the creatures of
my over vivid-imagination.
"Was I frightened, you ask? I
won't deny that I was badly frighten
ed, and that reminds me of a fellow in
my company who once gave appropri
ate answer to a crowd of soldiers who
made all manner of fun of him because
he trembled like an aspen leaf as they
were going to battle.
" 'Boys,' said he, 'if you trembled
as I de, you'd cut and run.' I tell you,
this sense of fear on the eve of what
is probably certain death is nothing
to be ashamed of, nor anything to
wonder at. Lincoln, one of the great
est of all men, appreciated this fear.
I remember the case of a young fellow,
whose name I might tell you, if I did
not think it wrong. Just before one
of the bloodiest engagements fought
during the late war he ran away. He
was caught, court-martialed and con
demned to be shot. His friends
sought President Lincoln's interfer
ence, but before they had a chance to
reach him, Stanton and Holt went to
him and told him that an example
must be made in the case of the young
fellow, that he must be shot as a
warning to others.
"Lincoln was very serious and
shook his head doubtfully.
" 'Stanton,' hesaid, "have you ever
been to war ?'
" 'No,' said Stanton, 'I never have.'
" 'Have you Holt ?' persisted Lin
coln.
" 'I have not had that, privilege,
Mr. President,' answered Holt.
" 'Well, I have,' was Lincoln's re
joinder. 'I was in the Black Hawk
war, and I know what fear is. I will
not have a man shot because he runs
away in the face of almost certain an
nihilation. You may punish him some
other way, but I will not permit you
to shoot him.' "
? Romance of the War.
"The day before Gen. Lee surren
dered," said a Confederate officer the
other day, "I crossed Sailor's Creek,
a small stream in Prince Edward
County, Virginia, which follows the
track of the Bichmond & Danville
Railroad and empties into the Appo
mattox River.
"There was only a handful of my
company left, and as I reached the
summit of the hill which skirts its
eastern bank I turned to Bee if the
Federals-who had been hotly pursu
ing us-were in view. As I did so I
observed a man* wearing the uniform
of a Confederate officer ride slowly
along the precipitous side of the stream
opposite us, and evidently searching
for a crossing.
"At this moment along steel-tipped
blue line of Federal infantry crowned
the hill above, in full view and within
easy range of the horseman. Appa
rently abandoning all hope of escape,
the latter turned and rode directly to
wards the enemy's line. As we
watched him, breathless with anxiety
lest the signal of surrender should be
too long delayed, he suddenly wheeled
about, put spurs to his horse, and
dashing down the declivity, cleared
the stream with a bound.
"Not a shot was fired at the bold
rider. As he reached the opposite
bank a spontaneous shout went up
from the whole line-a generous trib
ute from the brave to the brave. A
moment afterward the Confederate
was in the midst; of us, and we recog
nized in him Gen. James A. Walker,
the commander of the old Stonewall
brigade."
Swallowed a Hole.
The other day Jimmie, 4 years old,
found one of those bone-rimmed cir
cles which, I believe, ladies call eye
lets, and, while playing in the garden,
swallowed it. The family were in the
house busily engaged with a work on
entomology, when Jimmie ran in,
with mouth wide open, and eyes dis
tended to their utmost capacity. His
mother caught him by the arm, and
trembling with that deep anxiety
which only a mother can feel, inquir
ed:
"What is the matter? What has
happened?"
"Water!" gasped little Jimmie,
nearly scared to death.
It was brought him, when, after
drinking copiously, he exclaimed:
"Oh, mother, I swallowed a hole !*'
"Swallowed a hole, Jimmie?"
"Yes, mother, swallowed a hole,
with a piece of ivory around it!"

SQUAN CREEK FOLK.
Jep Jones Tells How a Church Choir
Upset the Town.
Our church had been runnin' along
fur fifteen years without any trouble,
except that some folks didn't pay
their pew rent until the last dog was
hung. We didn't sing nuthin but old
fashioned hymns, but Deacoon Spoon
er allus give us the key with his tun
in-fork and everybody sung fur all he
wuz worth. With the doors and win
dows open on a summer day. our sing
in of "Rock of Ages" could be heard
clear across to Porpoise Island. No
body was finding the least bit of fault,
when a widder woman narced Scott
arrived at Squan Creek to pass the
summer with her cousin. She was sor
ter tony and stuck up, and atter she
had attended church once she got at
the preacher to have a quire. At fust
his hair stood up at the thought of it.
and he says to her:
"It would never, never do. The
people wouldn't stand it, and the Lord
would be agin' it."
But the widder was a persistent
woman, and she hung right to him.
and talked and argued till he seen
things differently. He finally give
his consent for her to organize a quire,
and then the ruction begun. Every
body had been'singing as loud as he
could, and either long meter or short
meter, and nobody was goin to give up
without a kick. When Deacon Spoon
er heard of the idea he banged his
tullin fork agin the gate post till the
sing of it was heard all over town, and
said:
"I've bin leadin the singin in this
town fur fifteen long years, and never
pitched a tune too high nur too low.
If the Lord hadn't bin pleased with
my singin' I should hev heard of it
long ago. Them church quires is an
invention of Satan. It's the fust
step towards bustin up a church, and
hev in the pastor hung for murder and
the deacons sent to State prison for
highway robbery. If thar's anything
of the sort set a-goin' in Squan ?reek
I shall sell out and move away inside
of a week, fur ye may look fur the
fate of Sodom and Gomorrah right
here."
One of our best singers was Mose
Perkins. He had a mouth on him
like a hole in a highway bridge, and a
voice which would carry five miles
agin a gale. When he stood up to
sing he drew a long breath, spit on his
hands and let 'er go. and if he hap
pened to be feeling purty good he
kept on singin till somebody give him
a kick as a hint to shut off steam.
He kinder felt that jealousy would
keep him out of that quire, and he
went around sayin:
"I ain't braggin to anybody that my
singin has been the means of keepin
up our church and savin ten or fifteen
souls a year, but I kin la*7 my hand on
my heart and say that when you don't
hear my voice any more you'll find
lobsters and crabs gittin powerful
skeeree."
When the widder took hold to or
ganize the quire she called fur all the
singers to meet and sing, and then the
ruction grew into a row. She asked
Abijah Andrews to sing a verse of
"The Sweet By and By," and he rose
up and tied four different tunes in a
hard knot. He was after more tunes
to mix in when she sweetly says to
him:
:;Mr. Andrews. I will sing with
you, and you may try the bass, if you
will."
In singin four lines Abijah hit thc
bass, tenor, alto and all other sorts,
and finished with a rumble that almost
cracked the plaster. He was told to
stand aside, and he went down to Dan
Parker's grocery and said to the as
sembled multitude:
"A free born son of Liberty and an
American patriot has bin turned down
and jumped on. and if sunthin ain't
done about it you'll never see another
wreck come ashore on this beach. I
call upon ye to rise and throw off the
yoke of despotism."
It was the same with Joe Saunders.
Friday Bebee. Good Intent Jones and
three or four other men. They had
bin siugin away fur 15 years, and
thought every note of it went straight
up to heaven as a sort of advertise
ment for Squan Creek, but it didn't
take the widder five minutes to turn
'em down. She said it had bin all
whoopin' and hollering instead of
singing, and that they didn't know a
note from a dog shark. Each of 'em
went forth to talk about tyranny, des
potism, 1770 and the enterin wedges
of Satan; and red-hot times had come
upon us. The women was wuss than
the men. Joab Henderson's wife had
bin sort o' leading the female side in
church singin, and durin the 15 years
she'd gradually loosened every tooth
in her head. She sung for thc widder
Scott, and she put her hull soul into it
and calkerlatcd that half thc angels in
heaven was clapping their hands in
applause, but when she got through
the widder said:
.;Mrs. Henderson, if this was grand
opera you d be in it up to the cars, but
your voice is too powerful fur a <juire.
You'd hev to git it down where it
might break in two on you and be no
further good."
She up and told about 10 of'em the
same thing, and the hull crowd was
tickled to death atfir?t, but it present
ly got out that the widder was guyin,
and then there was no goin to bed
before midnight. A quire of six was
finally got together and one Sunday it
was announced that they would do the
singin. Then the row grew into a re
bellion. Word was passed around and
so many folks turned out fur church
that the pews wouldn't hold 'em.
When it got along to the singing we
all had our eyes on Deacon Spooner.
He was there and he had his tunin
fork all ready. Once in awhile he
wo.uld roll his eyes up to the ceiling
as if askin the Lord to forgive him
fur what he was about to do, but at
the same time he was calm and deter
mined.
Atter awhile the preacher gave
out the hymn: i;We Shall Meet Be
yond the River." At the same time
everybody outside the quire turned to
"I'm Going Home To-Morrow." As
the quire started in the Deacon bang
ed his tunin-fork agin his pew and
opened his mouth, and two different
tunes was bein sung at once. Mebbe
you kin imagine what sort of a high
jinks' performance that was. Bvery
singer in the qnire screamed as loud
as he could, and everyone outside of it
used all the breath he had. Children
left at home that day flew under the
bed and went into fits when they
heard that noise, and over at South
Shore, four miles away, the preacher
stopped in his sermon as he got the
sound of the racket and said to his
congregation:
"Brothers and sisters, it seems that
they are playing baseball over at
Squan Creek on this holy day. Not
only that, but the hull population has
probably turned out to mob and mur
der the poor umpire."
When the quire and the congrega
tion had finished its hymn, both sides
sat down. The preacher was awfully
upsot, and the best he could do wai to
preach a sermon about 15 minutes
long. There ought to hev bin more
singin, but there wasn't. He was
about to close up with the Doxology,
but he looked up and saw that the
Widder Scott had her jaw sot, and he
looked down and saw Deacon Spooner,
with his tunin-fork all ready, and so
he calmly said:
"May the Lord bless Squan Creek
and make it a good fishin' season;
and now amen, and we'll go home."
The quire went all to pieces after
that day, and there was nobody left to
oppose congregational singing; but, the
town had bin upsot and could git over
it in a day. Even to this date, which
is over five years, if one of the quire
folks asks one of the congregational
singers fur a ohaw of terbacker, he
meets with a prompt refusal and is told
to go to grass on top of that.-if.

WASHINGTON, June 1.-The House
to-day passed the Senate bill to re
move the political disabilities imposed
by the third section of the fourteenth
amendment to the Constitution. Con
gressman Lacey, of Iowa, in advo
cating the bill, eloquently referred to
the magnificent spectacle presented to
the country by the Ex-Confederate
General, Wheeler, who is on leave of
absence from the House, in the army
of a reunited country, a man whose
political disabilities were removed by
special Act of Congress. He said
that the political disabilities of all
Ex-Confederates should now be re
moved.
Congressman Bailey, of Texas, the
Democratic leader, declared that Gen.
Wheeler has m leave of absence, and
ought not to be granted leave of
absence to serve in the army. He
asserted that holding a commission in
the army and a seat in the House at
the same time cannot be regarded as
constitutional.
Congressman McMillan, of Tennes
see, interrupted bim with the state
ment: "Gen. Wheeler is loved by
every member of this House for
going to the front to serve his country.
I would not object to granting leave
of absence to any man in this House
who might want to go and place his
body before the fire of the enemy."
Gen. Grosvenor, of Ohio, then de
livered a magnificent non-partisan,
patriotic speech, which electrified the
House. In part, he said: "I know
that Gen. Wheeler went forth in the
spirit of unsullied and unalloyed
patriotism. Gen. Wheeler came into
the ways and means committee room
the day before he left and said he
only wanted to get a few papers. He
said he had never franked a single
document since his appointment and
you know there could not be any
higher evidence of Wheeler's sacri
fice."
Gen. Grosvenor spoke feelingly of
the spectacle of the united, country
crying: "My country, my flag, North
and South." He said all the nations
of the world are looking at our grand
reunion. "I shall vote to wipe off
this law from our statutes, and I am
grateful to Almighty God that I have
seen this day. So help me God I will
try to forget that there was any neses
sity for such a law."-Philadelphia

Crippled by
Rheumatism.
Those who have Rheumatism find
themselves growing steadily worse all
the while. One reason of this is that
the remedies prescribed by the doctors
contain mercury and potash, which ul
timately intensify the disease by caus
ing the joints to swell and stiffen,
producing a severe aching of the bones.
8. S. S. has been curing Rheumatism
for twenty years-even the worst cases
which seemed almost incurable.
Capt. O.E. Hughes, the popular railroad
conductor, of Columbia. S. G., had an experi
ence with Rheumatism which convinced him
that there is only one
euro for that painful dis
cane. He says : "I was a
great sufferer from mus
cular Rheumatism for
two years. I could got
no permanent relief
from any medicine pre
scribed by my physician.
I took about n dozen bot
tles of your S. S. 8., and
now I am as well as I
overvraslnmylife. lam
sure that your medicine
cured me. and I would
recommend lt to any one
.uttering from any blood disease."
Everybody knows that Rheumatism
is a diseased state of the blood, and
only a blood remedy is the only proper
treatment, but a remedy containing
potash .and mercury only aggravates
the trouble.
