Nothing great was ever acccropUrhed without it— Emerson THtSSSiH ; otyrhèjlted activities* .Bp regards membership In the Red Cross a sacred pri vile®?. But to go on with the story of a war without the Red Ci*»ss. Reverend Bafcewell can tell only a little part of the horrors of such warfare. One of the things that the soldiers suffered most from was monotony—ves, and the "blues." The soldier of today does not know what thnt word means with the Red Cross and eauleep workers and the Y. M. C. A. to entertain him when he is well and to care for him when ho is ill or wounded. Read the following extract from the diary of N. M. Baker, a chaplain of the One Hun dred and Sixteenth Illinois regiment, to get an Id«» of Um camp life In the d»ys of eighteen sixty-something. "Bang, hang, hangt The constant firing Cor an lang a time heran** mo notonous, on fafljp f«r pamatbtaf n«w. something Oat wUl causa tacitement and shake eft (ha eggft Induced by this hot weather, Excitement at last — a woman In raffip.

Oh. what a refinlog and restraining Influence even Ibis wom an can exert. She is an old lady and not handsome, hot to use the ex pression of the boys, 'She has a soul ay large as a wagon wheel' and somehow reminds thorn nil ©f their mothers." Here is another typical day in camp described in the same diary: "Rained today. Oh, how tedious a rainy day is In carap! We ert break fast, thon He down, then get up, eat dinner, and lie down again, etc. etc. Nothing to read, nobody to talk to. nothing to do bat to dream of home and loved ones." liven these few stories cannot half describe war without the Red Cross. What »bout the food the soldier», had? What aboat the conditions In tlie hos pitals? These questions can be an swered from the diary cf another Civil war veteran. Frank L. Richardson, a well-known New Orleans attorney, who entered the war when a Ind of seven teen, and unfortunately «peat most Of the time between those years of 1S61 1S65 In army hospitals. "No one can appreciate the work of the Red Cross os well as we- Civil war veterans," says Mr. Richardson. "That is why I am proud to have my own daughter go to France anti do hefc part."
