ttATURDAY.DECEMBKR 10. 1908 IN A DENSE FOG. Xlil.U ll.it It Stuppfd ( nniion llulla auil C'remtetl (u-ucral HavoO?Mextt Tbey were gathered around a camp tre telllng of the old times. The lead Ing subject had been the fogs down ?outh, says the Anierican Tribune. Aft ir the otlurs had tried their memory and lmagiaatioa ln describing ueuse logs a llltle. nervous fe'.low, with a rcd nose and a red badge, told the following axperieuce: "Well, comrades, you may talk about fog for a week and then I can till of a llttle dlfflculty that I had with the atuff that will overtop all you ever saw or linagined. If you had never encoun tered these dense fogs I would not dare to tax your credulity with my story. but after your experience I believe that here I will have hearers who can tomprehend truth, and I wlll repcat a story I once ?mbodied in an official roport and tln re by lost a fine chance for promotion, and worse than that lost the name of 'truth ful George,' whieh had clung to rne for many yoars. We were down on the Texascoast, and. though only aser?pant, I was in eommand of a section of our battery. One day seouts reported an ad ?ance upon us by the ene-my, and I was ?ent out to the riqht with two companics ?f infantry and ordered to throw up a lunette to protect the guns and sup port. I stakPd out a redoubt and set the men to wnrk: then wrnt to a plan ter's house in roar of position, where I took several drinks of peach and honey, and filled my canteen with the same. "Aftcr dark a terrible fog raised. and 1 ordered the men. who had fir.ished the ?nrthwork. to bnild a wall of fog back of the fort to portoot us in thp rrar in case the enemy surrounded us. About day Hght the rebs advanccd, and wo eavp them case and canlster as fast as we couid load.and with terribleeffcct. Thp enemy replied with cannon and riflcs. Though they were in overwhclming force, wp could easily have hpld thp posi? tion without murh loss if that wall of fog had not been built In our rear. You ?ee, the boys, having plenty of malerial, had built the wall about ten feet hlga, and evrry rifle ball and cannon shot that went over us struck that den?e wall and rebounded, doinc fearful execution. One after another the men were cut down, and I was left alone. Sclzingacartridge, I rammpd it home and covered it with a double charge of canister. Just as I wlthdrew the rammer a ball rebounded, TVK OAVE THEM t\\SK AND CANIS? TER. taking off my right arm. I sprang be hind my gun, inserted a primer. and waa puiling when when another shot etruck me baek of ihe neck. but as I fell dead, my hand still grasping the string, the primer exploded. fired the gun, kill tog bo many rebtls that the rest?" Just then Colonel Ellis fired the morn ing gun, the men sprang to their feet and rushed to the cook tent for coffee and hardtack.and "truthful George" didnot ftuish hls story.

It was one of the best drilled and best dlsciplined batteries in the aarvice, and yet it never fired a shot in battle."?Chlcago Inter-Ocean Mlll(ar> Taetica. A majority of the offlcers and men on both sides were very green about xnilitary tactics at the beginning of the war. A Michigan captain, it is said, ?who had been accustomed to drivlng an ox team in a lumber camp, when he flrst undertook to mSrch his men, in *tead of aaying "flle left," or "flle right," or "march," used to call out: "Whoa; gee, there!"
