od soldier is of a generous dispo-

all our great soldiers. They were not
only generous to friends, but likewise
to foes. It was said that General
Sherman was ungenerous when he or-
dered his batteries to open on Atlanta,
thereby endangering the lives of wom-
en, children and non-combatants. But
was he? Had he not given ample
time for all such to get out of the
city? And did he not know that they
were kept there in the hope that he
would not attempt to reduce the place
because of their presence? Looked
at from a war stand-point it was one
of the most generous acts of his life,
and it is so regarded now by all who
are capable of taking a philosophical

Loss of Appetite, That Tired Feeling

Get the Best Meats
You save nothing by buying poor,
every instance where their star sank:
instead of rising higher, that their |
failures were due to selfishness—a |
lack of generosity. They cared for
oaken wreaths upon their brows and |
pages of history blazoned all over !
with their names, which to them was |
but another name for glory. On the |
other hand, those who achieved last- !
ing greatness and imperishable fame, |
thought but little of themselves, but
sought victory by their armies and |
peace for the nation. They envied not |
each other, but fraternized as broth-
ers working in a common cause. The |
generosity of our greatest soldiers |
was made apparent to their subordi-
ns, and the rank and file, in many '
ways, and that without intending to
do so. i
The simple remark of General Sher- |
man to the Georgia farmer: “These
are all Generals,” pointing to the for- |
agers chasing the old man’s pigs and |
chickens, made every man in his army |
feel more a man. “Pap” Thomas won
a great victory when he dismounted |
after the battle of Jonesboro and |
walked through the tangled ranks say- !
ing: “It is your victory, boys; you
did it all yourselves.” :
General Howard (the christian Gen- |
eral) always selected a site for his |
headquarters after his men had been |
provided for as well as possible. |
General Logan made his men to feel |
that what was good enough for them |
was good enough for him. He was as |
often found in a “dog tent” or under |
a fly or wagon cover as in a head- !
quarters tent. |
The list might be extended to in- |
clude all of those whose memories are |
cherished by the soldiers of all our ar- |
mies, with General Grant as the most |
striking example of all. As it was |
only the unselfish, generous and kind- |
ly disposed officers who made their
marks, enjoyed the confidence of their
men and won substantial victories for
th: flag, so it was that the generous-
nea ced, unselfish private, who thought
not of personal glory, and was not
jazed by the glittering tinsel of rank,
out sought to render honest service to
