Dear Mother :
I received your letter ot the 20th of
May last night, also yours of April 21
about two weeks ago. I have heard peo
ple tell ot the hardships ot the civil war,
but doc't think they can compare with
what we have been through in the last few
It will do no good to tell just how and
what we have suffered, especially during
the first days out. I will relate just one
instance. We broke camp at five in the
morning and marched steadily until a little
alter noon. We stopped then for two
hours, that is, what there was It ft of us.
There were nine companies in our regiment,
each with over 90 men when we started ;
five stacked arms with only 21 men ; the
rest were obliged to full out on the way be
cause ot the heat. I expected my turn
would come to fall out, but my old foot
ball pluck stayed with me and I stacked
my gun at the head of the line at night.
We marched in skirmish line over three
miles looking for the enemy. We had no
water to drink and the ground was covered
with thick grass partially blown down,
making the walking very difficult. We
had a big battle and lost 14 men out of our
rrgimenl and 20 wounded. We were un
der fire for four hours. We had to lay in
the hot sun for two hours and then swim a
river with our guns in boat ; soon after
the sun set and then we were cold and

cloud burst. I went to sleep on a bamboo

Many a live dairyman wonders how many cows he
should have in his herd to make a cream separator a
profitable machine for him. He can easily make
this calculation himself. He, of course, wants a sep
arator that will not wear out, one that will not be
expensive in the way of repairs, and one that will be
easy to operate. Undoubtedly
fills all these requirements. After finding the price
of the sized machine he wants, he should determine the exact amount ot
income from the dairy. This will be increased the year through about
twenty per. cent through the use of Sharpies Separator ; and in addition
the dairyman will have his skim milk warm and sweet, and in such con
dition that it will have a feeding value of at least fifteen cents per hundred
pounds. With these facts in mind, it will be found that the separator is a
profitable investment with as few as four or five good cows.
