Frank promised faithfully and cheered his
companion up , saying ! "Don't worry ,
Tommy , my boy. Why , old Magruder's
mon never handled the bullet to hit cither
one of us. "
In a few moments , as they advanced , the
sip-zip of the bullets from the concealed
enemy In the "slashing" began to tell with
deadly effect In tlio ranks of tne Excelsiors ,
and almost before they know It a deadly vol
ley was poured Into their ranks.
For a moment the line staggered. Then
the stentorian voice of Qoloncl Taylor :
"Attention , Third Excelsior ! Fix bayonets I

And with allercoandloud hurrah the reg
iment , wltn set teeth and on a "double-

human beings could withstand their onset.

The rain descended In torrents , whllo the

The hattlo still raged fiercely , the gallant

The enemy , being reinforced , marto a most
gallant charge on the Excelsiors , who , now
being wearied and almost out of ammunition ,
began to fall back.
'Twos at this time that young Redmond
heard a smothered groan and a shrill cry of ,

On Juno 1 the battln of Pair Oaks was

that an enthusiastic Irishman of Captnlu No

Bciircoly a day without a severe skirmish.
Occasionally ho would make a visit to com
panyC , of the gallant Second Now Jcrsov
Volunteers , who llko himself were Nowarl
boys , organized by captain , afterwards Colonel
nel James N. Duffy , one of Now Jersey's
bravest , and most gallant ofllccrs.
At lost the enemy advanced , und on Juno
25. began the famous Seven Day's battlonear
Richmond : Goneial McClelUn rotlrca to
Harrison's Handing , on the Jninos river sav
ing the nrmy by the "skin of Its teeth. " A
length in August the evacuation of the Pen

transferred once moro up the Potomac , arrlv
lug at Warrcnton Into in August.
As the rcplincnt lay In bivouac Frank
wandered through the pretty little town
and as ho was about to retrace his steps to
his command a piercing shriek and a cry for
hold came from a nont cottage directly bo-
lido him. To dash up the steps and into the
louse was but the work of n moment , and
thcro before him stood a big , six-foot sol
dier of a Vermont regiment wlthonoof the
most beautiful glrU tho' young soldier hail
over behold kneeling nt his feet in beseech-
ng supplication , and Immediately behind
her lay the unconscious figure of a young
confederate odlccr ,
"Oil , have mercy on my poor brother , "
: ho young lady was saying. As Frank en
tered the room the lady briefly told her
story. How the brutal soldier , thinking
ihownsnlono , made degrading proposals to
licr. and , beingspumed , attempted to use
foico. Her brother , Lieutenant Ethcridgc ,
of the Tenth Virginia , who was hid nwny In
the houso. nnd badly wounded In the shoul
der and breait , came to her assistance , and
n his weakened condition was brutally
knocked down by the villainous Vcrmontcr.
Frank , trembling with Indignation at the
dastardly conduct of the rufllan , turned
fiercely upon him anil peremptorily ordered
him to leave the house Instantly.
" \Vull , I guesi not , sergeant. Not fcr
you nohcow. That rcblll Is my prisoner
nnvheow , bv gutnl"
Hardly wcro the words spoken when
Frank , with a well directed blow , stretched
him at full length on the floor. In falling
his head struck an Iron fonder on the
hearth , and ho lay us unconscious as the
confederate lieutenant on the other side of
the room.
"Oh. lr ! you have killed him , " said the
poor , frightened girl.
"I hope not , though ho deserved It , " said
Frank. "Now look to your brother. "
The girl Hew to her brother , whoso wounds
bad been reopened by thorough treatment
of tlio Vermontcr and wcro bleeding1 pro
fusely. With cold water applications the
fair ulrl , with Frank's aid , soon stopped the
flow of blood and brought him to conscious
ness again. When his sister told him of
Frank's gallant defense of bcr nnd him ho
blessed him and thanked him again and
The lieutenant then said : "I suppose I nm
your prisoner , sergeant , but you have saved
my sister's honor , which Is dearer to her nnd
mo than life itself , and I gracefully sub-
' 'OI peed sir , " cried the poor clrl. "don't '
take my poor brother. See , ho will ute If bo
is taken nwav from tlioso who love him nnd
\\illcnroforhlm. O , sir , for God's sake deus
us ono moro kindness.Do not scud my
brother to prison to die. "
The chlvnlrlc spirit of Frank could not with
stand the appeals'of the fair girl , and , being
assured that she could hldohcr brother safely
till the union troops left the neighborhood ,
Frank assisted tbo girl to follow out that pro
gramme , first securely binding nnd gagging
the Vermontcr , for fear ho would return to
consciousness nnd give the alarm. Ho guarded
him till the fair girl w.is ready under cover
of darkness to help her brother out of the
house and to a place of safety.
In taking farewell she asked and received
his name , company and rcglmcnt.and said :
"God forever bless you , Air. Redmond ; the
heartfelt prayers of Laura Kthorldgo will
over ho offered up for yoursafety. "
Pressing her hand to Ids lips Frank hndo
nor farewell , and , waiting until ho saw the
Vcrmonter beginning to regain conscious
ness , ho cut the coids that bound him and left
the houso.
That night Hooker's division left Warrcn
ton , and on August 27 fought the battle of
BristowStation , and on tho2'Jth fought at tbo
second disastrous battle of Bull Hun.
Then followed tno bloody battles of Antlo-
ttun nnd South Mountain , in which , however ,
the regiment that Frank belonged to was
spared from participating. After the union
victories at Antietain the nrmy of the Po
tomac , then under command of General Burn-
side , again advanced on Virginia , and the tcr-
rlblo slaughter of FrcdorlcKsburg followed.
The following spring , 1SIW , General Hooker
commanded , nnd the bloody battle of Chan-
ccllorsvllle followed.
In this , as In all tho-other engagements of
the army , the "Excelsioi" brigade took a
leading and glorious part , and on the never-
to-be-forgotten Saturday afternoon , May.2 ,
ISffil , when the Eleventh corps ivus panic-
stricken and routed bv Stonewall Jackson ,
the "Excelsior" brigade was ordered up to
check the onward rush of the exultant Stone
On that day Frank Redmond received his
commission as Second Lieutenant in Com
pany F of the gallant Seventy-second New
York volunteers. The brigade formea across
the plank road and , when Jacksoa found tbo
old "Excelsior" in his front , ho stopped sud
denly and began to feel his way. Night
coming on put an end to the flirhtlng that day ,
but Jackson , being determined to locate his
foes , fell mortally wounded between the
picket lines and.aied ' a few nays afterward * *

writer says sincerely. "Requiescat In
pace. "
At daylight next morning ( Sunday ) the
enemy advanced In thrco columns , nnd In a
short whllo Colonel Slovens of the Seventy-
secondwas killed , nnd scores of other ofllccrs
anil men placed hors du combat , and among
them , severely wounded in the side , was
Lieutenant Red mond. The battle raged with
great fury that and the riftxt day , and re
sulted In tno defeat and withdrawal of
the army of the Potomac across the Uappa-
hannock river.
The youthful lieutenant was sent to the
hospital , and his wound healing rapidly ho
made a short visit , to the city of his birth , the
dear old city of Newark , leaving there to re
join his regiment and stopping In Washing-
tolmnglno his surprise and crent pleasure In
mojting sweet Laura Etheridgo face to face
on Pennsylvania avenue. She scarcely recog
nized the htimlso.-fio young lieutenant as the
sergeant who saved her from worse than
death. Greeting him wurmly she prevailed
on him to go to her u tick's liouso , who was a
thorough union man nna who had prevailed
on bor to live with hiinaud leave the dangers
of her Warrenton home.
Lieutenant Redmond was warmly wel
comed by Mr. Daniels , the uncle , who had
heard of his noulo action In defense of his
niece. The render can easily guess the
result of this happy meeting. Francis Red
mend bad loved the beautiful Laura since
ho llrst had the happiness of beholding her ,
nnd with her lovely blushing facohladen on
his shoulder she confessed that her whole
heart was his since that eventful night at
Duty soon called Lieutenant Redmond
away from his betrothed , nnd soon he was
again with his gallant comrades. Then fol
lowed the great hattlo of Gettysburg , where ,
on the second day's light ha was shot severely
in the thigh nnd taken prisoner.
As ho lay in tlio temporary hospital
Colonel Etheridgo , who was a plain llnuten
ant when they mot last , knowing the Excel
sior brigade was In his front , searched
among the wounded to hear if bis preserver
Sergeant Hedmond wns still alive , and
was grieved to tind him wounded so badly.
On tbo retreat of General Leo's nrmy from
Gettysburg , Colonel Etheridgo inaiuigcd to
have him conveyed to a private houio nnd
left him thcro , so that ho would fall into the
hands of his own troops , t hcrubv returning a
kindly act nnd saving him , perhaps , from a
horrible death in a southern prison.
Tlio union troops followed dose on the heels
of the retreating enemy , and soon Lieutenant
Redmond was safely convoyed to a Washing
ton hospital. Being of robust constitution
nnd having the constant visits and cure from
Ins betrothed , as well ns from her uncle , to
solace him in his sufferings , ho rapidly re
covered and soon rejoined h is regiment , wnero
a captain's commission awaited him.
The following spring General Grunt as

"This talk about there not being any

found In tlio world. I inuko this state

Thus spake Ilonry C. Wicker , general
manager of the Ilarnoy Peak consoli
dated tin company ( limited ) of HillCity ,
S. D. , when nt the Wellington hotel to a
reporter for the Ghlcturu Tribune. Mr.
Wicker is on his way homo from Now

recently made arrangements with one of
the largest mill manufactories in the
east for machinery that will bo in opera
tion at the mines before next July , turn
ing out tin by the hundreds of tons per
"Tho mineral in our mines"continued
Mr. Wicker , "is the black oxide o ( tin ,
and It will tivorago 100 pound.s to a ton.
It is in true flsaur.o veins , 'with slate
walls , nnd when Urns found the product
is never known togivoout. The farther
down wo got the bettor is the ore , and
the veins probably extend for miles into
the cur th. The black oxide irf the finest
quality over discovered ; it melts easily
nnd cun bo used for plating. No such
tin wns over produced in the celebrated
mines at Cornwall , England ; so you sco
I do not exaggerate when I say that the
tin ot the South Dakota mines is the
finest in the world. The fact is known
in London and Now York , where there
are specimens , nnd specimens , too , can
be seen by any ono who doubts ii y state
ments in the olllcos of Clny & Forrest , in
the Illinois National .bank building ,
right here in Chicago.
' " 'The trouble with tho. Americans is
they arc too impatient. They think , wo
can go out to the hills , dig a hole in the
ground and produce tin right away. But
it tukcs time to dovolopo a mine , and
that part now has been accomplished.
Just as soon ns the frost is out of the
ground the mill that we liavo gene to
the expense of several hundred thousand
dollars to have sent to Hill City will bo
put in operation , and I am us certain as
I am living- that before many months
have passed wo will bo able to furnish
the mill with 600 tons of ore to crush.
Then the impatient American will know
positively that the new tariff bill is not
protecting an industry not yet born. It
was born long ago and at present is a
largo sized udult. It takes time to
dovolopo a mine when it is to bo run
on an economical plan. There
is $15,000,000 Invested in this enterprise ,
and the mon interested don't propose to
spoil their prospects by being .hasty.
Tlio know as well ns I what the 900
claims wo have can produce , as an assayer -
sayer is working on the ore all the time
making models , such as small anvils ,
paper weights , etc. Our workmen have
gene down liCO foot in some of the shafts.
"Yes , the quantity of tin in the Blade
Hills is unlimited. 'Our mines are scat
tered around Hill City in horse-shoo
shape for thirty miles. "Wo have 1,800
men at work two in each of the clair i'-i '
and if I were not certain that the ore
is all I claim it to bo you can wager all
you liavo that I wouldn't ' bo spending so
much money for labor. It is going to boone
ono of the greatest industries in the
world , and before Juno the people will
thoroughly ro.'lizoit. "
Mr. Wicker intended to leave for Hill
City lust evening , but the alarming re
ports from the Indian districts near his
homo caused him to change his plans.
"It looks as if the situation were grow
ing berious , " said the visitor , "and I
want to know what Imay expect while
on route through Xho Indian country. I
am afraid the savages might attack the
train. If I could roach Hill City in
safety I would bo all right , because the
Indians never come back In the hills.

years old , but ho followed mo up persist
ently and kept up his cry of "Paper , sir ! "
so continuously that I turned on him in
a way that I afterwards regretted , snys
the Detroit Proo Press. Ho felt -hurt
and insulted , and as ho disappeared in
the darkness I heard him calling :
"Never mind , old man ! I'll grow up
and give vou the awfullost licking a man
over gotl"
Wo h'nvo mot almost daily for the past
year , and on each occasion there has
boon no evidence of unbending. A do/.ca
timo3at least , I have hoard him remark
in an aside :
"There goes the fellow I am going to
lick if it takes mo fifty yonral"
The other day I was surprised to ro-
coivoa call from my young enemy. Al
though ho looked no older or stronger , I
wondered if ho had como to carry out
his awful threat , when ho extended his
llttlo "paw" and bald :
"Say , lot's quit , "
"I'm ' nproeu. "
"I sixid I'd lick you , and I meant it all

"Wliat's happened to change your

And so wo shook hands nnd made up ,

As they faced each other the afflicted

In such cases the truth is that they
have not the same physical vigor that
they once had ; but it is generally be
cause tholr increasing dally duties leave
no energy to bousedm physical recrea
tion. Their muscular system then bo-
pins to fall , and although they nro in
lirst rate health , still they are not so
strong and active as they once woro. If
these same mon were suddenly relieved
of their dally responsibilities and began
again to lead a thoroughly healthful , ac
tive , out-door llfo they probably would
accumulate enough plij'blcal energy to
make them just as peed and perhaps
hotter athletes than they might have
been five , ten or fifteen years before ,

can compote successfully , It may ho said

in actlvo competition over four or five
years , for now and bettor men are con
tinually facing them. Unusually good
ones will , however , avorngo two or throe
years longer , but in the case of amateurs
retirement from competition is generally
