Fifteenth Boys Fondly Await the Joyous Homecoming. Special Cor. to Minneapolis Tribune: Camp Mackenzie, Ga., March 8.— The paymaster arrived Saturday, and with him came a marked change in the weather. Last week was an exceeding ly warm one, but a heavy thunder storm Sunday morning ushered in a cold wave and camp life is again ex ceedingly uncomfortable. But we'll soon be going home, so everyone is good-natured in spite of the weather. Monday, March 27, is the date set for mustering out the Fifteenth Minne sota. The Tenth Ohio goes on the 24th and the Thirty-Fifth Michigan on the 31st. The boys are counting the days now, only nineteen of them left. They are resolving to get back to Minne sota by the shortest and quickest route possible. Some few will not return, their homes being in other states. Some will go by steamship from Savannah to New York and then home, and there are a few who will cross the Atlantic, returning to the "old country" to visit friends and relatives there. But most of them, as soon as they have their discharge papers and money in their pockets, will start for Minnesota on the first train. The statement published to the effect that the news of the muster out orders were disappointing to the men and were received with no enthusiasm, de serves a stronger appelation than mis take. We were never ordered to the Phi lippines, as was also reported, and as to mustering out, there are not ten en listed men in the regiment who are not over-joyed at the prospect of going home, returning to the more profitable avocations of the civilian. We can all get mustered out, draw our full al lowance, re-enlist in the regular in fantry and be furloughed for twenty days, reassemble and be taken to the Philippines. A telegram to this effect from President McKinley was read at retreat Sunday. If any correspondent dared state on his company street or in the presence of his more sensible comrades, that the men of J-he Fifteenth did not iwant to be mustered outj he would be given the worst "blanketing" ever received by a soldier. Our position on mustering out has been systematically and perseveringly misrepresented ever since last August, and we are getting awfully tired of it. And the officers, too, are glad to leave the service, for most of them have something better and more pro fitable at home. Camp life with its never-changing routine has become very monotonous The physical examinations begin this morning, Company C's mess shall being used for the purpose. The com panies will be examined in alpbabeti al order at the rate ot two a day. Major Westervelt of the Tenth Ohio is senior officer of the examining board. Major Dennis and Lieutenants Frye and Hyde constitute the board of sur geons who will examine the Thirty fifth Michigan. They begin their work today also. Major James Elwin, Captain Spicer and Lieutenant McMahon are detailed as a board of survey to determine the responsibility for the loss of a large amount of quartermaster's stores for which Lieutenant W. T. Coe is ac countable. Most of the missing pro perty was stolen at Camp Meade. Among the men, little that is worthy of note has happened. In Companies and there is room tor a lot of promotions, the non-com missioned officers who were particip ants in the recent mutiny all being re duced to the ranks. They are Ser geants Herbert Johnson and Nelson J. Perror, Company Corporals G. F. Newton and David W. Roher, Com pany and Corporals C. C. Larson and H. A. Hardy, Company D. The regiment began Work on the rifle range last week and the target practice is a welcome innovation to the boys, and they go at it with en thusiasm. The work at the 100-yard range was completed Monday. The score has not yet been summarized but in the opinion of Captain Cross* field, the range officer, Company has made the best score. Sergeant East man and Corporal Casey of the com pany each made a score of 50. The event of the week was the re lease of all the prisoners confined in the regimental guardhouse and the non-coms who were under the care of the Tenth Ohio guard. They were re turned to their companies Thursday and a happier lot was never seem Sergeant Johnson is still in custody* for he is considered one of the ring* leaders and must stand trial as such. All of the guilty ones have been severe ly punished by their long imprison ment. But the prisoners wduld not Willmar, Minnesota, March 15, 1899. I The Journal's Florida and Cuban excursion spent Monday in Augusta and many of the excursionists visited camp in the afternoon. They were juost welcome visitors. Several of the Minnesota boys took dinner with them on their "diner" and all were sorry to see them «go. Lieutenant Evans, formerly lieuten ant colonel of the First Indiana vol unteers, is the mustering officer who will on the 27th make civilians out of the Minnesota boys. He is now here supervising the work of preparation. TRIBUNE. 25 PE CEN RODLUN & JOHNSON, have been released without trial had it not been for the efforts of the good p^pkKoi Augusta, who first petitioned General Sumner for the release of the Minnesota men, and failing there, car ried the matter on up to General Young and then to the war depart ment. The result of their efforts was Thursday's order from division head quarters, directing the release of all the prisoners save the ringleaders, Foley, Williams Kelley and Sergeant Johnson. Words cannot express the gratitude which the Minnesota boys feel toward their southern'friends who have proven to be friends in need. R. A. S. Auction.

AT REST. TfierJ'li8ttVeftty"Gates Ope to Receive Another Pre cious Soul. DIED—In Iron Rod, Sunday Feb. 20, 1899, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Sperry, Miss Jennie P. Sperry, aged 16 years 5 months, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. H. Sperry, of Will mar, Minn. Safe from earth's darkling shadows Safe from its smiles and tears. O'er the sun-gilded waters She passed in her sinless years. Her tender feet grew weary Of earth with its sodden leaves. So she glided in life's morning To the crown the angel weaves. Ah! lonely sorrowing father. With grief thou'rt stricken low: There's a void in thy heart forever, A thorn in thy path of woe. Day by day you'll miss her footsteps. And see but the empty chair: You will yearn for the happy daughter And kiss but a lock of hair. And the song and sound of music How memory enshrines them all They've become but the living echoes Of the loved one past recall. —FUOM HER FKIENDS. The young lady whose demise is chronicled above came to Twin Bridges from her home in Willmar, Minn., last May, with the hope that our cli mate would prove beneficial, as she was not enjoving good health. She was a bright, lovable young lady, just budding into noble womanhood, and though her sojourn in our midst was brief, it was of sufficient duration to win the affection of all who were so fortunate as to form her acquaintance, all of whom extend tbeir deepest sym pathy to the relatives and friends of the beautiful girl, who has bowed to the will of the Creator and inevitably responded to the call from the Great Beyond, in their hour of intense sor row. The deceased young lady's brother, Roy, arrived on Saturday's train, in time to see his beloved sister during her last moments on earth. The corpse was conveyed to Will mar for interment, after being em balmed by A. Less, the Whitehall undertaker. WE MOURN OUR LOSS. (Contributed.)

A certain insurance agent of Willmar and a member of the insurance trust has been circulating the statement that the Minneapolis Fire and Marine Mutual Insurance Co., which is repre sented by F. P. Olney had a policy on the building known as the Bonde building which was recently damaged by fire and refused to pay. Also that the company is not good and does not promptly pay its losses. The faCtB are that neither the company nor MK Olney had a policy on that building nor the contents and it was a "board" company that did the kicking if aftjr was done, but then these people mudt say something to induce people to pay two prices for their insurance, and a man who will enter into a combination to do up his neighbors and friends must not be expected to tell the trtlth where a He will make him a dollar. 5tf F.
