, After having C. R. Ford qualified as
deputy Register I enlisted In Capt. H.
H. Dillard's company and left Cooke
ville on June 6, 1861, for Camp Trous
dale, on or near the Kentucky line,
north of Gallatin, on the Louisville &
Nashville railroad.T here we were
organized Into regiments, Dlllardr's
company being put Into the Sixteenth
. Tennessee Infantry, Col. John H. Sav
age commanding.
The latter part of July we were or
dered to Virginia. The first battle of
Bull Run had Yecently been fought
when we got there, so we were order
ed to West Virginia, Oen Dan S. Don
elson commanding a brigade of Ten
nessee tropps, including the Eighth
and Sixteenth regiments, all under the
command of Oen. R. E. Lee,
We went by railroad to Staunton,
V, where we. started on foot across
the mountains to Huntersville.- We
' 1 were camped there through the entire
I month of August, it raining about all
. ! the time we were there.
On the fist day ot September we
broke camp, filled our haversacks up
with salt meat and hardtack, and
started across the mountain to Cheat
Pass, where Gen. Rosecrans was ad
vancing with several thousand Feder
al troops. We met them , at Cheat
Pass at daylight on Sept. 13. Gen.
Lee came to us in person and ordered
a ' countermarch back the way we
came. Dillard's company, K, was on
the left wing of Savage's regiment.
We were in the rear going in, then
about-facing made us 'in front going
out. .
The Federals found out during the
night how we were located and moved
some of their army to 'our rear. We
did not get far down the mountain
when we were fired on. The first or
der we got was to charge. W? d!1 so
and broke the Federal line., killing.
wounding and capturing fifty men,
with a loss of one man killed In Capt.
Coffee's company; Harvey F;sher
wounded In the shoulder, anl the
drummer of Dillard's company, Moody
West, had a' hole shot through his
drum, and the writer had some holes
shot through his clothing. This wa
our total loss in our first fight.
We were then ordered back the
same trail we came In on some three
miles to the top of the mountain and
there learned that Lee's artillery had
failed to get to the positions desired
owing to the high water, it raining all
the time, so there was no general en
Rosecrans fell back and started for
Kanawha Salt Works, while Lee with
his army fell back to Green River
Bridge and then started to meet Ro
secrans at Big Seville Mountain, a
long, hard march through mud and
water. We got there but Rosecrans
had left we knew not where.
We marched back some one hun
dred miles to Wytheville, Va., on the
East Tennessee & Virginia railroad,
where we got on trains again for
long ride to the coast of South Caro
lina. We rested at Charleston for
few days and were moved south to
Port Riyal and camped there through
the winter of 1862 until April.
I with others then volunteered in
McBride's company of cavalry, made
up out of the Sixteenth Infantry, got
a furlough of 30 days to come home,
get a mount and return to Chattanoo
ga for service. Capt. McBride's com
pany was mustered into the Third
Tennessee Cavalry and we left for
Kentucky via Cumberland Gap, under
command of Gen. Kirby Smith.

Singing songs of praise constitutes
one of the most profitable methods of
worship. But
surely they are
acceptable to God
only as they tru
ly represent the
heart sentiments.
We fear, alas,
that many
hymns, like many
prayers, never go
higher than the
heads of the of
ferers; indeed, we
have sometimes
feared that careless, Irreverent singing
might really be resented by the Lord
as profanity taking His holy name In
vain. If so, the results would be the
very reverse of a blessing, in propor
tion as the singer comprehended the
Impiety of his course.
Bitter Water, Than an Oasis.
The Journey toward the Land of
Promise began. At length, they came
to an oasis, where there was an abun
dance of bitter, or brackish, water.
The disappointment was great. The
people murmured . against Moses for
bringing them from the land of plenty
to die in the wilderness.
The Lord's Wisdom guided Moses to
certain kind of tree, , which, put Into
the water, made It sweet and palata
ble. Moses explained that tn murmur
ing against him they really murmured
against God; for ho was merely God's
agent A farther Journey, brought
thorn to Elim, a delightful spot, where
they were refreshed. . ,
The Scriptures explain that God had
a special purpose In this leading ot
Natural Israel. He was teaching them
helpful lessons which, rightly received,
would prepare them, through faith and
obedience, for Canaan.
The lesson to Spiritual Israel la still
more Important If Natural Israel
needed heart development and faith as
a preparation for the earthly Canaan,
how much more do Spiritual Israelites
require for the Heavenly CanaanI Can
we wonder that God permits trials of
faith and patience "bitter waters"?
Any saint of God may have tears in
the trying experiences of the narrow
way, but none Is excusable for mur
"It Is Whatr It Is Manna.
When the Israelites murmured against
God and Moses, His mouthpiece and
servant, it was because of unsufflcient
faith. Those who truly believed in the
Providence which had preserved them
from the plagues of Egypt and had
brought them through the Red Sea,
would reason that God would not leave
them to starve in the wilderness.
But the majority evidently murmured
through unbelief.
So it is today. As St Paul declares,
All men have not faith." We do not
blame them for this. Evidently birth,
early training and larger experiences
give some a great advantage, so far as
this Age is concerned; for God has or
dained that the Message now is for
those who have the ear of faith. Who
ever has the hearing ear and can ex
ercise faith has a blessed opportunity
of making his calling and election sure
under the call of the Gospel Age.
We thank . God that His Word
teaches of a coming Age. wherein Mes
siah will bless with precious opportu

and responsive heart in this Age, and
that in the Millennial Age all blind
eyes shall be opened and all deaf ears

Jesus declared that the manna given
in the wilderness typified Himself, the
true Bread. As Natural Israel would
have perished ' without food, so Spir

strength for the journey without Heav
