AN AGED VETERAN.
A Detroit Veteran Talks of the War and a I.egaey It Left III in. When the annual reunion of the G. A. K. is held. Mithlfrun is always veil represented. Around the camp tires of the encampment our boys tell of the hardships they liavo gone through and the listener who knows nothing of war will wonder how they lived to tell the tale. Few men who followed old glory and escaped the hot and fchell returned home without home legacy is a constant reminder of their war days. Our representative found veteran O. V. Neweomb, of De troit, at his place of residence, No. 237 Second street. Mr. Newcomb told him how the little conqueror had rendered him invaluable service. We give his account here and some words of advice tersely told. He said: "A lake covering about two acres in extent, containing the dead bodies of 20 mules, is not tempting water to drink, but I was one of many who drank it, and all of us would have done so if we had known there was death in every swallow. This illustrates but one of the many hardships and priva tions passed through during the civil war, and it is no wonder that ti. A. 11. men suffer from aches and pains. The most prevalent of these being due to kidney disorders. I am pleased to note a great manj' others who passed through as trying ordeals as I, have now learned how these troubles can be mitigated.

IDDEN away in the vault of a safe deposit company 13 a memento of that struggle of thirty odd years ago which no wearer of the blue or gray could look upon without peculiar emotions. Just now, when the remnant of the host that donned the blue nearly four decades back is preparing to pay Its yearly tribute to its dead through out the length and breadth of the land, this memento a flag so worn and ragged is of strange interest. Its history is the history of the war. This flag flew high in the air over the battlements of Fort Sumter on that eventful morning of April 12, 1SC1, when the newly organized Confederate forces began the bombardment which started the greatest conflict of modern times. There were two garrison flags in the fort; one was the fine weather flag and the other tho stormy weather flag. Like tho chaos in men's hearts the elements threatened on that historic day, so the storm flag was run up and In short time became the target of the Confederate shot. Before that it was not a fine flag, be- FLAG OF FORT SUMTER. Ing made of coarse meshed, strong bunting, tough enough to withstand the lashing of the winds of the coast. Ten feet one way and fifteen th other it Rtood out like a board and more than one wild shot, aimed by the inexpe rienced gunners on shore, went to high over the fort that big gaps ere torn In the flutering emblem. Mrs. Elizabeth Anderson, widow ol Brevet Major General Andeiaon, com A mander of Fort Sumter, now owns the, flag, and she treasures it so carefully that it is rarely removed from tho strong box in the safe deposit vaults. The ravages of time have had little effect upon its color. The red, white and blve ;t:r alm.t as bright today as they were thirty-six years ago, and were it not for the rips and tears it would make a gallant appearance to day flying in the bright sunlight. -ven times during the first day of the bombardment the flagstaff was struck, but by a strange series of ac cidents ir.; i.a.i; continued to fly at the peak. After one of these accidents Ma jor Anderson exclaimed: "God Al mighty nailed that flag to the staff and I could not lower it if I tried." This particular accident happened in this way. Outside tho bar marking the entrance to the harbor were several Federal vessels. This fleet could not enter the harbor without being sunk by the cannon of the land batteries, and all it could do was to anchor out of range and observe the bombardment. It is needless to say with what anx iety the men on these ships watched the flag flying over Sumter. They knew that sooner or later it must come down, but they also knew Anderson, and felt that he would hang on to the last gasp. Every little while Major Anderson gave orders to dip the flag to the fleet to show that everything was all right. During one of these salutes, and when the flag was being hoisted back into place after the third dip, a shell burst near the staff, cutting the halliard. The flag started to come down with a run, but a piece of the cut rope got jammed in a section of the shivered staff and the flag was mor secure than ever. It was this that caused Major Ander son to utter the historic words above referred to. After the evacuation of Sumter Ma jor Anderson Journeyed to New York, where he made the usual garrison In- u.5 4-yi- k--,- -V r tuc-.

The Secretary of War promptly ordered the return of the flags to the major, accompanying them with a letter in which he said that they could not be in better keep ing than in the hands of the man who bo gallantly defended them. Major Anderson had the -flags placed in the vaults of the Metropolitan Rank In New York, and there they remained until it was evident that General Sher man would wring Fort Sumter from the dying grasp of the Confederacy. The flag was again sent South, a. on the day the Confederates surrendered the fort it was again hoisted to the peak of the flag pole by Major Anderson himself. This happened on April 14, 1865, ex actly four years to the day from the evacuation. A salute of 100 guns was fired at the fort In honor of the flag, and the guns of the surrounding batter ies and ships Joined in the uproar. After that the old flag was returned to the bank vaults, not to be seen again until death called Its owner. Then It was used as a pall at the soldier's fun eral at West Point, and with each sue ceeding generation its unique historical value will lncrtasc. ffj3 -3 0 V THE GRAND OLD MAN IS DEAD. Hon. YVlllUm I'm art iUlton -Cloarn Moat llrmarkable Career. Ttxlay there is mourning wherever tho Anglo-Saxon race has found an abiding place. One of the greatest lights of modern history has been ex tinguished and the greatest statesman England has had in the past century lias passed through the portal of eter nity. He is gone, yet, though the mor tal breath has llown. he will live and continue to live as long us the Anglo Saxon race exists, for William Ewart Gladstone was h great man who found his way into the hearts of the people, and there he will ever live. He is to be reckoned among the few "the im mortal few not born to die." His has been an influence so profound that it cannot end with the stopping of the heart and the stilling of the tongue. Whenever the mind reverts to con temporary England it inevitably thinks of Gladstone. It sees him in parlia ment as the greatest debater and po litical leader In that most powerful legislative body. It sees him in the Rritish cabinet mastering the details of administration in the departments of finance, or of colonial affairs, or of the internal relations of the Rritish nation. It sees him at the head of the cabinet shaping the policy of the greatest empire in the world. The mind's eye cannot look at any phase of England's life during this half of the century without beholding this cen tral, all-pervading figure. And with all his greatness of achievement, with all the power over his countrymen which he. held, he was always the same unpretending, untitled "Mr. Glad stone," refusing steadfastly to accept a peerage, an honor that to a man of his great character would have been mean ingless. As plain Mr. Gladstone, the great Liberal leader and reformer, the champion of home rule, orator, states man, scholar and Christian gentleman, the typical man of his country, he is destined to hold a higher niche in the temple of fame than any of his titled contemporaries. OVER TWO SCORE KILLED. lows, Illlnol anil Wisconsin Suffer From Terrific Tornado. Forty-two persons are known to have lost their lives, and 23 others are re ported dead, as the result of tornadoes which devastated portions of eastern Iowa, western Illinois and north ern Wisconsin. The storm in Iowa started near Stanwood and swept through portions of Cedar, Jones, Clinton and Jackson counties. Nine teen persons lost their lives and more than twice as many were injured. 'The property loss will probably reach $.-oo,ooo. In many places not a build ing of any description was left stand ing. Cattle, horses and hogs were killed by the hundreds. In numerous instances farmers lost everything they possessed. The Iowa stoim crossed the Mississippi river into Illinois near Sa vanna Considerable damage was done on the Illinois side before this storm spent its force. The second tornado in Illinois started near Stillman Valley and swept north ward wrecking farm houses and killing as it went. Rut the greatest loss of life was at the point of origin. At Lanark the storm ended by wrecking the county almshouse and killing three inmates, and three others were fatally injured. There were over .j0 persons in the building when it went down, and all of them were injured. In Wisconsin the storm was more violent than anywhere else, but fortu nately it originated in the lumbering districts of the northern counties, swept along the line of the "Soo" road and spent its force in the pineries. Nine people are known to have been killed. Unconfirmed reports have been received that 18 lumbermen were killed in a camp near Ileafford Junction, and 10 more near Elmhurst. The property damage in Wisconsin, while quite heavy, is much less than that done in the fertile farming districts of Iowa and Illinois. THE MARKETS. LIVE STOCK. Cattle Sheeji New York- Uest prades...

THE DUTY Ql MOTHERS. Daughters Should bo Carefully Guided la Early Womanhood. What suffering frequently results from a mother's ignorance; or moro frequently from a mother's neglect to properly instruct her daughter I Tradition says "woman mustsuffcr,, and young women aro so taught. There is a little truth and a great deal of exaggeration in this. If a young woman suffers severely she needs treatment and her mother should see that she gets it. Many mothers hesitate to take their daughters to a physician for examina tion; but no mother need hesitate to write freely about her daughter or herself to Mrs. Pinkham and secure the most eflicient advice without charge. Mrs. 1'inkham's address Is Lynn, Mass. The following letter from Miss Marie F. Johnson, Centralia, Pa., shows w hat neglect will do, and tells how Mrs. Pinkham helped her; "My health became so poor that I had to leave school. I was tired all tho time, and had dreadful pains in my side and back. I was also troubled with irregularity of menses. I was very weak, and lost so much flesh that my friends became alarmed. My mother, who is a firm believer In your remedies from experience, thought per haps they might benefit me, and wrote you for advice. I followed the advice you gave, and used Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and Liver Pills as you directed, and am now as well as I ever was. I have gained flesh and have a good color. I am completely cured of irregularity."
