Yesterday my special sale on watches
was very satisfactory in the morning,
but as the report became more widely
circu ated about the large well to be
driven for the pumping of watches from
the bowels the earth, sales dropped off
early in the afternoon and today no one
looks at a watch or a clock as the pro
moter haa increased the size of the per
forated ? tube from six inchea to four
feet to accommodate any and alt clocks
that may be swimming around in the
watch belt. Out of respect for this
great enterprise we refuse to sell our
largest eloci.s until the pump is set to
work on the watch vein. Excitement
on the boulevard was at fever heat to
das when a liberal offer was made the
Skagway Mining and Milling company
to bring down their 200-foot tunnel and
stand it up on end instead of driving
the tube. God speed the enterprise if
we never sell a watch.

When the Thirteenth whs brigaded
with us, everybody spoke In praise of
Its runt and die. No better material
could hare been found In America. A
couple of weeks, however, showed the
eolouel to be an egotist and n drunk
urd, and few of the company or regi
mental officers seeiued anxious to give
him credit for anything outside.
One dny the regiment came oat to
relieve the Fourth on outpost duty.
At midufteruoon u . undred Confeder
ate cavulry, divided Into squads of
twenty-five, attacked four full compa
nies of the Thirteenth at about the ,
same mommit. * One discharge of- their
carbines, followed by u grand yell, did
the business in each instance. The
same 100 cavalry then fell ui>on the
reserve of 000 men and routed them
at a dash. One thousund me* were
beaten, routed uud disgraced by 100. j
The colonel called his officers to
go the r and said they must give the
meu double drill and that In the next .
light they must shoot down any man
who tried to make a bolt for it And |
the captains got their respective com- \
panics out on the parade ground and
looked savage aud swelled out theii
chests and shouted:
"You are u laughing stuck la this
brigade. You buve bad two or three
chances to win glory, but you buve
run uway like beaten cure. In our next
fight I will shoot the man who even
And yet every private In every com
pany remembered that when he ran
away he followed his three officers and
was not able to overtake them. A
month later, at 9 o'clock one summer
morning, our brigade swung Into bat
tle line on the left center. It stretched
across a cotton field, with Its right and
left connecting In the woods with oth
er brigades. The tight began fur above
us. That meant waiting, and it is the
waiting that makes coward.-) of brave
Down the lines of the Fourth, Sev
enth and Kigh:h went the company
officers to brace up the men who were
not cowards, but yet losing their nerve
In the waiting, but over in the Thir
teenth it was different. The officers
were at the regulation distance in rear
of the lines, and the men had uol-ody
to brace them up. To talk to each
other only uiade matters worse.
We were quite prepared for what
happened knew that it would happen.
Of a sudden the enetuy opened fire on
our front with urtillery, and as the
first shell exploded In the ranks of the
Thirteenth the whole l.UUO men broke
buck like u (lock of frightened sheep.
A second shell completed the business,
and there was u stampede which car
ried them a mile to the rear. The gup
was closed up, and the battle went on,
but the Thirteenth could not be rallied
again that day. Three days later the
inujor general said to the officers aud
men on parade:
"1 know the history of the Thirteenth
since its first skirmish. You are a dis
grace to your state, to the army and to
yourselves. I shall recommend that the
regiment be wiped out of existence."
tin the morning that the order of
iisbnndiuent arrived from Washing
on the Thirteenth was in charge of a
<enior captain, and some of the com
?allies were In charge of orderly ser
geants. A Confederate column, which
lad cut loose and marched by night ;
hrough the fields and woods, suddenly i
:>urst out of the woods upon the scat- ,
: er.il camps along the river. The sur- ;
?rise was complete, and without a
?heck the enemy came sweeping down |
lit' stream. The Tliirtcentli turned
? >ut, but there were no officers to Rive
ili;'ni orders. They were cowards and
fiad always nui away. A few had
iltvndy started oil this occasion, when
here cauie the sound of hoof beats
row the west, and a woman rode into
?amp. She was hardly above twenty
rears old. fair haired and* handsome
nd probably the wife of some L'nion
ifflcer from the camps above. Every
.?ail thrilled as she pulled up her horse
tnd cricd out:
"Men, they are making a stand up
:hcre by the ford, and if you'll Join
hem the enemy can be cheeked and
"We'll go? we'll bo! Fall In? fall In!"
(hunted the men in chorus, after aD in
stant's silence, and fire minutes later
every mau had his musket and car
tridge box and companies were being
formed up the road crowded with
white faced fugitives, and yet never a
man of the Thirteenth fell out. There
was no officer to lead them, but the
>voman rode ahead and turned now and
then to smile and beckon them ou. A
round shot plowed up the dirt near by,
but she gave no heed. A shell burst
against a tree a few yards away and
filled the air with splinters, but she
did not turn her head. The bullets
came thicker and thicker, but she held
her way until a line of blue suddenly
came Into view and then waved her
hand and said:
"Right down there, comrades, is
where they need you, and after today
no man will call the Thirteenth a regi
ment of cowards!"
"Hip? blp? hurrah!" and a swinging
of caps and a dash forward. The blue
fighting line was strengthened not a
moment too soon. The enemy hurled
shell and grape? he poured volley after
volley? he charged again and again,
but the line stood firm and cheered as
It stood. It was a fight of an hour be
fore re-enforcements came up. Behind
the log breastworks were a few hun
dred living men their eyes still aflame
and their faces black with powder
stain, and on the right and left and be
hind them more dead and wounded
than the whole brigade had yet lost.
Not a coward had died? not a coward
had lived on. Led by a woman, all had
become heroes. M. QUAD. 1
