LVTLRE9TIX6 EXPERIENCE Of Gettysburg Pilgrims? Col. "Bob's" Thirst. Gettysburg, Pa., Stpt. 29. ? Sev eral West Virginia veterans who came to Gettysburg for the dtdica tion of the monuments erected by the state here, had interesting ex periences. In 1S63 the Eighty seventh Pennsylvania regiment was doing duty in and about Grafton, W. Va., and were brigaded with the Tenth West Virginia regiment. The quartermaster ot the former was James Hersh, since sheriff of this county, and now living in Get tysburg. The quartermaster of the latter was Major J. C. Gluck. Soon after they were separated and they had not seen each other for thirty six years. Yesterday as the Second West Virginia regiment of which Mayor Gluck is now quartermaster, marched up the streets of the town. Captain Hersh recognized the pres ent officer as his friend of war times, so many years ago. They embraced and have been recounting many anecdotes and experiences of those exciting days. An interested spectator of yester day's exercises ? be could not be a participant, lor he was in the Con federate service ? was Col. "Bob" McEldowney, editor of the New Martinsville Democrat. He arrived in Gettysburg on the evening of July i, '63, and remembered hav ing secured a drink in a saloon then kept in the basement of the Eagle hotel. The colonel is not a drink ing man, but he started out to find his old establishment, saying if he succeeded he thought he would have to repeat the experience just for association's sake and to keep him from being lonely. He failed in his search, and continued his thirst of thirty-five years' standing. Colonel Casteel received this morning a change of orders which permits the regiment to remain in town over Sunday. On Monday they go to York to remain a few days during the York fair, and thence to Camp Meade. The soldiers spent the day on the battle field, and this evening gave a dress parade, which was witnessed by Governor Atkinson, the battlefield commissioners and a large con course of citizens. The governor delayed his departure for Baltimore and will start in the morning. Serious Case of Itching: and Bleeding Piles Cnred. For nearly a year X was afflicted with itching and bleeding piles, and was so bad that I could not sit down without a great deal of pain. I doctored and used all the different kinds of pile medicine I could hear of, without any benefit. Six months ago I tried San-Cura Ointment; the second application gave me great relief, and half a bottle cured me completely. I have had no trouble since. M. W. Buchanan, Titusville, Pa. Sold by C.
