Those who are out and do not want to get in
any political office must admit that private
concerns look for officials who have had ex
perience in government. The opponents of
civil servico seek to got rid of such, on the
ground that "they had enough and others
should havo ithcir turn." That policy would
bring a private corporation to bankruptcy.

Graphic Story Related by Dr. Melcher,
Who Brought Corpse Out of the
Samuel II. Melchor, who now Uvea
tit 2327 West Jackson boulovard, Chi
cago, obtained the body of Gen, Lyou
from Gen. Price after tho battle of
Wilson's Creek and carried It into tho
Union lines, accompanied by a volun
teer escort of confederato soldiers. In
his capacity of army surgeon Dr. Mel
cher was Irnmuno from capture and
Imprisonment by the onemy and made
his wny without troublo to Gen. Price's
hoadquartere, assisted by a. friendly
colonel. Ho can speak authoritative
ly on tho much discussed subject of
Gen. Lyon's garb at tho tlmo of tho
battle and states that tho general wub
dressed In military uniform. The story
of the recovery of tho body is told In
Dr. Melcher's own words as follows:
"Whon Col. Slgel'B reaervo, whloh
had retreated on the WIro road south,
halted at tho Thompson farm some ot
tho men brought to mo Gen. Rains' di
vision surgeon, Smith, who had been
captured while coming with help for
tho wounded. I had him Immediately
roleased and wo started back on tho
Wlro road In tho direction tho fighting
had taken placo to look for wounded.
Dr. Smith took tho lead through tho
timber and proceeded In a northwest
erly direction until wo reached a largo
confederato emergency hospital, closo
by a big spring.
"Receiving Information that most of
tho wounded of the last part of tho
battlo were being attended to near tho
creok, we set out In that direction and
wero Boon in tho road crossing over
Bloody hill. The position of tho dead
on both sldeB of our path showed how
terrible tho struggle had been. On
each side of the road wore dead sol
diers, the gray on ono sldo and tho
bluo on tho other. After going a Bhort
tlmo wo started to count and, as wo
dirt not wish to go back, wo estlmnted
that thero wero 300 or 400 on both
sides of tho path.
"Upon dismounting at tho hospital
tho first and only person that I recog
nized was tho long haired Col. Em
met McDonald, n, young lawyer of St.
Louis, ono of tho most outspokon se
cessionists. When ho was taken at
tho capture of Camp Jackson in St
Louis he absolutely refused to be pa
roled and was accordingly brought to
tho arsenal and held a prisoner.
"As I had occasion several tlmos
each day to pass tho tent whore Mc
Donald wub held, I saw him standing
In front of tho entrance dressed in a
6ort of French cavalry uniform, with
his arms folded, his eyes glistening,
his Bwarthy countonanco scorning to
threaten vengeance if ho should over
bo free again. I had never mot hlra
and had no ill will, whatover opinion
ho might have, and so, as I passed, I
simply touched my cap, and to my
surprlso he seemed each tJmo to sof
ten a little and touched his In return.
"So, when I saw him step quickly
toward mo as I entered the confed
erato camp after the battlo of Wil
son's Creek, and warmly tako mo by
tho hand, I was somowhat surprised.
After talking a moment in regard to
tho wounded ho Informed mo that
Gon. Ljon was killed. Instantly I
said: 'Can I havo his body?' Ho at
onco said: 'Coma with mo and I'll
see.' Ho wont with mo directly to
Gen. Prlco's headquarters and, as ho
had never known my name, ho Bald:
'This Is Gen. Lyon's surgeon. Ho
wishes the body. I want you to give
it to him. Ho is the only offlcor who
treated me decently in the arsenal.
"Gon. Price, who was dressed as an
ordinary citizen, with no Insignia of
rank except a black leather bolt In
which was a small Colt's revolver,
held out his hand In a fatherly man
ner and we clasped hands. Turning
to Gon. Rains, ho asked If ho know
where tho body was. Replying In tho
afflrmatlvo, Gon. Rains was ordered to
bring it for Identification. In perhaps
twenty minutes a wagon drovo up, and
I waB asked to examine tho contents.
Upon raising tho blanket which cov
erod tho faco of the dead man I at
once recognize our general.
"Gen. RalnB naked: 'What Is your
pleasure?' and I replied that I would
llko to havo tho body carried to tho
"As soon no a coflln could bo rondo
tho body was taken to tho Phelps
farm. After tho body had been on ox
hlbltlon for several days Gon. Prlco
ordered It burled. This was done Aug.
14 by Col. Snoad, who saya: 'I burled
him by Instructions from Gen. Prlco,
and I said as I put htm In tho ground,
"That Is tho greatest enthusiast I over
saw and tho greatest man." ' Aug. 22

You can tell it Is kidney trouble if the se
cretions are dark colored, contain sediment;
the passages are too frrq lent or scanty. Then
help the weakened kldoers. Don't expect
them to get well alone,
