When Fortune smile In sweetest mlrlc
and Furor tna us on the hack,
When Fnme't steep hill Deems easy work,
And pleasure decorate tlie track
Along our rose-strewn youtliftil routo
Life plays uion cheerful lute
When we are young.
When care hss In lit the wesry frsma
And Trouble marked the wrinkled hrnw,
When wr mint live, tho' halt and Imne.
We sad'y think of then and now.
When f ritnds arc scarce and dollars few
Ijlfeiliuwi a very different view
When we are old.
When dmth shall enter at our door
And grimly serve his sinninous hold,
W hen wc shall miller ain no more
And Mother Dirlli our form shall fold.
Ah! thi n will he our battle won
And brighter life but ilt begun
When we are dead.

SOLDIERS' - COLUMN
An Iawi Man Who Wants ta Know
Who Commands on His Part of tha
I desire to re
late a few Inci
dents that camo
liniler tny obser
vation In the but
tle of Kciicauw
27, I SIM. I have
read several ac
counts as to the
time the battle
- placing it as late
is as tl a. 111., others
1Niin hour earlier,
My recollection is
that on tho part
of the line where
- - I was (nenrlv
the extreme right) the order to ad
vance was given but little lifter sun
rise. The regiment to which I belouir
rd (4th lows. First Itrigudc, First
Division, Fifteenth Corps) was ordered
to tnke position in our outer line of
skirmish -pits just nt break of day,
which we did, ami at the same time
received orders to advance on the
enemy's works nt the sound of the
bugle. Now, it seemed to me to be n
very short time from the time wo occu
pied the skirmish-pits until the bugle
sounded forward. I think the time
could not have been Inter than 7 o'clock
a. 111. We were stationed in an open
Held, facing nearly duo cast, and pro
bably HOD ya'di from the r ibel works.
Hetwccn ours mid the rebel works, and
about two-thirds of the distance to
them (the rebel works), was a small
r mm with some timber and a good
de il ofunderbrush. The enemy's works
(llrst line) was just nt the cdiro oftho
timber 0:1 tie east side of tho
creek. Their miln line wns on the
crest of the hill some distance bnck.
From our line to the creek was moderately-sloping
ground. (This position
was to the right of the mountain.)
When tho bugle soundod we started
on tho run to reach the covor of the
timber. As soon as wc left our works
the rebels opened tire on us with cm
11011 and musketry, our cannon mean
time firing over our heads. Wo readi
ed the timber with but small loss, and
up to this time we hud not fired a shot.
Upon reaching the timber wo began
tiring and continued advancing unit
drove tho rebels from their two ad
vance lines of rifle-pits, and sent them
flying up the hill to their main line;
but our success wns of short duration,
for wo hud just got comfortably settled
'n our new quarters waiting for more
help when I chanced to look to my
right a short distnnce, and saw a col
umn of Johnnies eight deep marching
right up the lines of works wo were
in, driving all before them.
The writer also begun to look up a
line of retreat. To m y left and rear,
some little distance, I stw a largo oak
tree, but did not seo s deep gully
which lay between mo and the tree,
and into which I went head first, and
my musket muzzle down in the mud.
I pulled myself nut, also my gun, but
enbt the gun to one sido and picked
up another which some soldier had
lost, I gained the tree in safety and,
upon looking around for my friends,
tho enemy, I found they had In turn
been attacked and driven bnck; but
they returned to tlio charge and our
troops were compcllod to full back
again, which about ended the fighting
at th it point. There was still heavy
fighting to our left, as firing was quite
in avy at times. Heports hail been
reaching us for some time through tho
wounded and stragglers that our
troops wero being worsted in thoir
attack on tho mountain. I worked
my way back to the position wo occu
pied in tho morning in our main line.
Tlicro was one thing that I have not
been able to account for as far as our
part of tho lino was concerned, and
that is this: I did not seo un officer
above the rank of Captain during tho
battle, and do not know who hud
charge of that part of the lino. Each
soldier seemed to bo fighting on his
own hook. I should bo pleased to
hear from somo others who were on
that part of tho lino. W. H. Booth In

At tho risk of being classed with the
"unsophisticated," I desiro to say that
on the morning of Sept. 17, 102, at
the battlo of Antictam, as tho com
mand was about to move from the Held
where we had lain uudcr the firo of
rebel batteries all day of thu 10th, my
attention was called to Private Isaac
P. Hopkins, who bad been ailing for
scverul days' but who would not give
up. Ho was clearly unfit for duty, and
was ordered to remain behind. "No,"
he said; "I would rather die thau bo
called a coward; but I know very well
I am going to be killod to-day."
Ho was the only man ' t bis com
pany who diod on tho field that day,
though many were wounded, mortally
Another case in point. My chum
was Aarou C. Jenkins, as cool and as
bravo a boy as was ever under Arc. We
shared each other's confidence, as well
as blankets and rations. On the morn
ing of May 3, 1803, at Chancellors
villo, the regiment was inline near the
Plank road, whore tho Eleventh Corps
had fallen buck the previous evening,
apparently waiting orders. Brigade
after brigade of our troops bad been
successively driven back through the
woods, whon I noticed Aaron out of
ranks sitting on a pile of old rails.
His attitude and demeanor betokened
deep thought Approaching him, and
with a familiar slap on the back, I ask-
I. ,n rm s.
i jkaw' in .
rd him if his girl had got married.
"No," he said quietly, ' but this Is my
last battle. I know I will be killed
Ten minutes latter (Ion. Carroll led
us Into that woods; a volloy wus fired
and a charge was ordered, and within
!I0 minutes that woods was cleared of
Johnnies, breastworks and all, pun
ning out U03 prisoners. Aaron C. Jenk
ins was the only man o his company
who lost his life that day. There is no
ground for presuming that all or any
considerable proportion of soldiers
about to meet the enemy aro troubled
with n premonition of disaster, much
less men like tho two I have named,
who, their surviving comrades will tes
tify, wero absolutely without fear in
action, and always ready for duty.
