*‘They tell lots of army stories of Jack

Galesburg, “‘but I have got a new one.
And I know it’strue,becausel was there.
It was down in Mississippi. We were in
pretty hard shape with our wardrobes.
Some of us had miserable coats, and
others shoesall wornout. Butallaround
us were Johnny rebs and colored men
dressed h good clothes and with good
shoes on their feet. It seems an army
train had been abandoned near by a few
weeks before, and they had all supplied
themselves. The boys were pretty badly
riled up by seeing those people enjoying
good coats and hats and shoes while we
were in such great need, but ordersabout
taking property from non-combatants
were very strict. Some of us went to
Jack Logan about it, and stated our griev
ance. ‘‘Boys,”’ said the general, ‘“‘you
know the orders as well as I do, and 1f 1
were in your condition and I met a
Johnny reb who wore better clothes and
better shoes than I, I shouldn’t rob him.
That would be wrong and contrary to or
ders. But I would make him a very
good offer to swap.”” Now, I rather
guess we took the hint, and by the time
we got away the people there must have
had a worse opinion than ever of Yankee
trading.”’ &
