There was Fisher Pray, Orderly Sergeant of Company I. He came from Waterville, O., where his folks are now living. The day before we started out he had a presentiment that we were going into a fight, and that he would be killed. He couldn't shake it off. He told the Lieutenant, and some of the boys about it, and they tried to ridicule him out of it, but it was no good.

I put it from me, went to the basin, and wetting the end of my finger, sufficiently softened the gum to make it more effectually fasten the letter than when I had received it. This done, I proceeded to the business of the day with what appetite was left me. I do not know how I got through with the business of that day. Even in my weakness I was possessed of a singular degree of strength.

At the close of the sermon Mr. Welsh held out his hand to his host. "I promised," he said, "to give you Mr. Welsh by the hand." "Yes," returned the gentleman, who was much affected, as he grasped the hand, "and you said that you were sent to apprehend rebels. Let me assure you that I, a rebellious sinner, have been apprehended this day."

It was the magnificent and spontaneous tribute of an intelligent people to an enlightened patriotism, to years of severe and unselfish thought; and hardly an enemy grudged him his deserts. The wild feeling of exultant triumph which surged behind his smiling face receded before the rising swell of the profoundest gratitude he had ever known. The day finished with a great banquet at Mr.

I think we should not do any more business tonight, except it be business of necessity or charity. The Speaker. This, in parliamentary view, is Saturday. The clerk will read the report submitted by the gentleman from Iowa.

He got out a long envelope, and took from it a number of typed pages, backed with a base of heavy paper. "'Inquest in the Coroner's office on the body of Howard Lucas," he read. "'October 10th, 1911. That was the second day after. 'Examination of witnesses by Coroner Samuel J. Burkhardt. Mrs. Lucas called and sworn." He glanced at Dick and hesitated.

And we're going back. I'm going to keep that promise. We're going back, Peter, if we hang for it!" And Jolly Roger's jaw would set grimly as he measured the time between. The tenth day came and he set out for the mouth of the Canoe River. On the afternoon of the twelfth he paddled slowly into Limping Moose Creek. Without any reason he looked at his watch when he started for old Robert's cabin.

And as I told Josiah time and time again, "that for stiddy ridin' I preferred a mare to a mystery." Wall, it run along for a year; and Josiah said he s'posed he'd have to write on, and get the pass renewed. As near as he could make out, it run out about the 4th day of April.

In the evening the cavalry recrossed the lagoon, as there was no water obtainable on the other side, and the animals had to depend upon the supply landed from the steamers. All day the work of disembarkation had been going on, and in spite of the heat of the blazing sun, the men had worked enthusiastically in getting the horses and stores on shore.
