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

Reminded sf Mg*«*.
"It is amusing te sa» as ahe- fgMPV
how the boys leave off their rnda
pranks und settle down as demote a»
kittens. She stops and talk« kindly
to every group and the boys all feel
better after ||l They are a» polite and
proper in tlreir conduct toward' each!
other for full five minutes after she i r
gone as If they had suddenly beet
transported to civilization end to the
drawing room. 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."
His daughter, Miss CaroUqe Rich

the English department at Newcomb
