officer in the Second army corps under
Gen. Hancock, and will stump the State of
Colorado for his'callant commander :
"On the eveniue of the 15th of June.
thn fiwnnrl Armv Corns, with the imnoaintr
figure of Hancock at its head, undistinir-
dier, except by his grand heroic statue
. and bearing, crossed the James river, near
t Petersburg. For two days and nights the
- weary veterans who followed the trefoil
. ag had tramped over hot and dusty Intra
ways vitb empty haversacks, thankful for
stray ear of corn with which to appease
their hunger. And yet there was not
munuur, at ftt length they lay down, worn
and exhausted,' behind tho hasty earth
works which they were cautioned to throw
up with their bayonets; for tho enemy was
in their front, and in the dawn of tho morn
ing hundreds upon hundreds of these poor
fellows would awaken only to enter upon
that long and undisturbed sleep of death.
They knew this, and yet no heart flinched,
no muscle quivered.
They wero with Hancock, and he had
never yet deBcrted them or led them to de
feat. And so they went quickly to sleep,
and not even the glimmer of a light gave
warning to the foo ot that silent bivouac.
Long ere the first glimmer ot day tho gal
lant Second corps had been awakened from
their slumbers and drawn up in line of bat
tle in front of their works. Not a man
then but knew what was before him.
Scarcely had the first faint trace of light
begun to color tho atmosphere when a
hoarse and sudden boom trom the Confed
erate line gave tho signal for commmence
ment of the bloody carnival which was to
redden the memorable clay. I do not pro
pose to enter into tho details of this strug
gle. Not a man in the whole Clover-leaf
corps but had opportunity of beholding his
commanding general repeatedly during the
contest. lie was among thera and of them,
sharing their perils and their work through
out the entire day. At the close of the after-

which had spent its force and caused only

hrnnrrht in from all directions, BOUie on
stretchers, many of them on foot. Many
more were on their way, and frequently
when the ambulance or stretcner reacneu
the hospital the poor complainant was taken
out dead. There were groans and impre
cations filling the air all about me. The
terrible stench of the unfortunate ones who
were undergoing operations was enough to
sicken the stoutest heart. From the lips
of many came the mott horrible oaths
and imprecations. - Men were dying all
around. And such a death I All the avail
able space in the yard was thus used. It
was a scene to beggar desciption. What a
scene that would have been for a Ilogarthl
Bewildered and confused with the horrible
sight I witnessed, I entered the main
building and passed into the large front
room. As I did so a strango spectacle met
I my gaze. There were half a dozen cots
containing the forms of wounded men, but
thi-re must have been a score or more of
I other soldiers proBtra on the floor, or find
ing other support. The surgeons, witn
their assistants and attendants, were mov
ing about hither and thither, making bur
ried inpections, and the bght fell from
two or three lamps upon the scene. It pre'
scnted a lurid sight.
'Cpononeof the cots lay the prostrate
figure of a Union officer. Upon inquiry I
learned that he was a near and dear friend,
the adjutant of the Sixty-third New York,
and that he had been shot through the
groin. 1 advanced to tne oeasme, anu us 1
did so I beheld the form of a woman she
could not have been more than a girl of
cfahteen from her appearance kneeling by
the cot. In her hands she clasped a Bible,
and she was offering up a prayer for the
souls who were dying about her. After
she arose the dying adjutant beckoned to
her, and as she bent down her head whiS'
pered something in her ear. Then the
young girl turned to those who were
standing about and quietly asked them to
join her in singing 'Rock of Ages.' I had
heard that hymn sung before,
and have since, but I shall never
hear it as it was sung

such a scene. Away from home and
j friends, the only one of her sex in such a
nlnce. The stench of the wounded and
dying as they were brought in, tho roaring
ot the battle as it still raged furiously in
front all of these were not the natural
surroundings of such as she. Surely such
a woman must have the sweetness and
tenderness of an angel, with the heroism of

snatched away in a ungarded moment, to
graco the next war dance. When we read
the heart-rendering details of these savages
depredations, wo are apt to blame the gov
ernment for not taking more strict precau
tion to insure tho settler's protection.
But wo daily read of the depredation of
that urch-flend, consumption, with scarce
ly a thought of tho terrible inroads it is
making in human life. Tens of thousands
of homes are annually desolated by cou
sumptidh to one by Indian outrage. Like
tho Indian, consumption oftenest comes

until the victim suddenly finds himself
hnnrlflRH ensnared, and death's fatal arrow
ends the scene. Dr. Pierce's Golden Med
ical Discovery, a powerful alterative, or
blood-purfier, and tonic; has restored
thousands of consumptives who had tried
every other remedy recommended to them,
without obtaining any relict, and are
willing to testify to its remedial powers.
Ajj Elegant Toilet Preparation, bair
dressing and restorative is found in "Lon
don Hair Color Restorer." It seldom fails
to restore gray or faded hair to its original
youthful color and beauty. Falling hair is
checked by its use, and it produces a
growth of beautiful young hair, soft, glossy
and luxuriant. It certainly is the most
cleanly and effective hair restorer now be
fore the American people.

ty, N. Y., writes : Dr. Swaync & Son, Phil-
aOclDhia: Gents I enclose a postomce
order for eight dollars ; please send me one
dozen "London Hair Color Restorer." It
has stopped my hair from falling, and re
stored it to its natural color. It has proven
satisfactory in every respect. The "London
Hair Color Restorer" can be obtained at all
tho leading druggists at 75 cents a bottle.

and indiscretions of youth, nervous weak
