he has the feeling that a long service
Is ended houorably. with every duty
Mis "Rood times" do not sound like
stories of picnics. Among these pleas
urable experiences may be mentioned
fighting for two days In command of
pl.Hoo.l against a band of Minnesota
Indians who surrounded bin company
In a forest and killed the captain and
seven men. Another "good time" he
experienced was through the attempt
of an Inrfiun chief lnJakota to burn
the camp of his company by settling
Are to nil the woods encircling it
.Still anor'n r "good time" Sergeant
Kelly had was serving 3C hours con
tinuouslv in a water filled, trench at
San .Itian hill, within HOO ards

quit his bluffing."
The Indian campaign In the north
west. In which Serjeant Kelly did
not get a better taste of active service
than he has described, resulted in his
loaing his Job. the only time in hla
military career. The war department
decided to abolish two companies of
each Infantry regiment and recruit
two Indian companies Instead. Kelly's
company, I, was abolished and a red
skin outfit recruiled In Its place. A
brave named Hairy Coat became first
sergeant instead of Thomas Kelly.
Hut Kelly was not long out. The
ofiiil-rs of the Third would not lose
him, and he soon reappeared en the
roster as first wrgeant of K company.

look back to that day when you found
some one you loved down In rte silent
