An expert has been to Columbia, and
made an examination to ascertain ii
the .epidemic there is real smallpox
He reports that it is real smallpox,
but of a mild type. This diagnosie
should put an end to all controversy.
Whether a mild type or not, those
who have seen victims after recovery
-eport that the disease leaves the face
horribly pitted. It does not require
much vanity for a woman or -man to
dread havirg his or her face disfgured
in such fashion, and the sensible thing
to do is Lobe vaccinated. Only a day
or two ago a colored man was in
Winnsboro who had just recovered
from the disease, and those who caw
him say thathe was badly marked by
Smallpox may break out in Wina

say that they will be vaccinated when

tru South Carolinian:

Carolinians; you are sons of the met

rather die than think that South Caro

made upon her for volunteers. Ai

HOW THE DEAD EOK N THE. BA
Anything: about war .is read' with
interest these days and when one re
counts incidents that came under his
own observation the- interest is in
creased. We have lieen told that our
recent article entitled "What I Know
about Soldiering" was much appre
ciated by old soldiers and also by the
younger people. Something more on
the same line may not be out of place
at this juncture. It fell to our lot dar
ing the late war to serve in an infantry
command which always had "a place
in the picture near the flashing of the
guns." At Gaines's Mill and at Second
Manassas we were on the detail to
bury the dead. So we had two ine
opportunities to look upon the battle
field when the joy of the conflict was
over. The slaughter at Gaines's Mill
was terrific. 'Orr's Riles lost ninety
men killed and more than three hun
dred wounded in the short space of ten
minutes. It was a melancholy sight
when we began our task next morn
ing. From away in the distance the
sound of cannon in pursuit of the
enemy fell upon our ears, but a solemn
stillness rested upon the field where
all was noise and tumult the da- be
fore. Oar comr-des lay as they iell,
stiff in death. Nearly every man had
one hand or finger pointing upward to
the sky. In nearly every case their
eyes were open, but there was no lustre
in them. The marks were plain where,
in the agony of death, their fingers
had torn up the earth and their heels
had dug into the ground. One body
lay across a pine bush, the face turned
up to the sky, with a great furrow
plowed through the forehead by a
minnie ball, and the blood hardened
on his pale faca. Farther on another
young man lay up:n his back, his
hands peacefully crossed upon his
breast, and the top of his skull blown.
off. His brains were near by and
when we buried him we picked up his
brains with our bloody hands and re
Dlased'them in the skull. We buried
five in one grave, wrapping their blan
kets around them and layitg them
away without cere ony. When we
carried a Lady to Vie grave two men
would take hold of .he shoulders, two
would have charge of a rail supporting
the hips, and one would grab the feet.
We made quick wor k of it.
At Second "lanassas we held a posi
tion for more thad two days. We
filled a railroad cut with dead Yan
kees and along the line of the railroad
beyond the cut it was possible to step
from one corpse to another for a mile.
During the fight a large red-headed
man from Pickens County died to our
left within five ieet of us, in gteat
agony. His gasping for breath was
painful to witness, but there was no
time for sympathy or help. The
bodies of the enemy lay before us dar
ing :e two days fight, and as it was
in Augnst the stench was almost unen
durabie. Tje bodies were swollen t.
almost twice their .natural size an t
when 'we lifted them up for burial it
setmed as if they would fall to piecei.
The woods were full of blow-fies
wh'ch were so pestiferous that the de
tail could, scarely keep them off their
faces and 'out of their months.
The scene - at Chancellorsville was
horrible beyond the con-.eption of any
civilian. On the 3rd of May, 1863,
we pressed the enemy in such hot pur
suit that they set fire to th3 woods to
delay our advance. It was of no avail
and as our line still went forward the
pitiful spectacle was presented of the
wounded enemy encircled jn flames
and helpless to escape their..fate. The

It is Easy to Tell.
People who fail to look after their
health are like the carpenter who neg
lects to sharpen his tools. People are
not apt to get anxIous about their
health soon enough. If you are "not
quite well" or "half sick" have' you
ever thought that tour kidneys may be
the cause of your sickness?
It is easy to tell b~y setting aside
y.nr urine for_ twenty-four hours; a
sediment or settlinig indicates an un
healthy conditica of the kidneys.
When urine st-:ins linen it is ev,idence
of kidney trouble. Too frequent de
sire to urinate, scanty supply, p:in or
dull ache in the back is also convincing
proof that the kidneys and bladder
are out of order.
