" "Yaw, meesis,'' replied Tillie, -

It% was almost a week later when I
the thought suddenly occurred to
Mrs. Nelson, who had been somewhat t
taken up with social affairs, that she .1
had had no news from home, nor in
deed any other mail. She looked in
the letter box, but it was empty.

Lost On Picket.
By James Mitchel.
Apil tie 14t1 fouiid us in line of
battle behind tle breast works run
niig fron Brock's cross roads to
right or nortiea,;t of Spottsylvania.
The yankee sharpshooters were still
out in our front popping at dvery
chance they could get at us. It. would
seeni to a casual observer that every
thing in our front was in tact and
ready for baftle, but we noticed that
the artillery firing had stopped along
In the evening- we were ordered
over the works and across the field to
the enemy's works. I began to feel
spotted as we mounted our works and
fle sharpslioiters popping at us, we
expected every minute for (ie bat
teries to openl on uIts, but not a gun
except the sharpshooters. We sooni
picked them up, they would not get
out of t1heir pits. They had been left
to keep up i feint until the armiy
could get well on tiheir way before
we could find it out.
When we got to 1heir works we
found them deserted, everybody gone.
As sooln as we crossed their works we
moved by the right flank and went
down t heir works in fronti of Ile
bloody bend. As we emerged from
at body oft Woods into an openling- , wep
cile ii reacli of a strong skirmish
iine posted in the woods on , the otlier
side of the field, the bullets began
to conic thiek and3( fast and we were
halted and a strong skirmish line was
thrown out to (rive them out. While
waiting on the skirmishes to find out
if they had a line of battle in our
front, one man by the name of Richey
was wouinded(. lHe was standhing
near a very nervous fel low ini our
compjany who lost conitrol of himself.
Heo ran and lay downi behind (lie
paunich of a beef where the yanikees
had butchered the day' before. Some
of the boys guyed him and1 told him
I o comec out froni there, but thle polr
fellow w~as too much frighitened to
niotice what was said.
it wvas about sunidown and we kept
tollowving them and( preing~ii t hem
nutil some time in thle night. It was
a dark drizzly night andl we hiad to
shoot at the flash of their guns. They
kep)t falling back aiid I remember I
wanited to wait until daylight. I
dlreadled to go ini battle at any time,
but of all times deliver me fromi a
Ihat night we stopped advancing and
punt out a strong picket line. It camne
my tiime with A. 13. C'romer, from
air companiy, to go oni picket and on
account of the hard fighting and
rnarching for the past. week we were
ill wvorn out for the want of sleep
imnd two men were put oni at each
iost to make it more secure, thinking
hat oine of the two would slay awake.
I remember t hat S. B. Cromier and( I
were3 put oni post togethier ini a b)ody

the pickets gone btIIt eight of us who ,h
had been overlooked by the man who t
had passed around to relieve us. s
Well, we did not know which way
to go. We knew where the eiieIti
was that nighit but we did not know
where they were Ilow. We decided 3
to go bac'k where we lefl tle rei
