A WAR REMINSCENCE.
SCENES AT HATCHER'S CREEK
AND PETERSBURG RECALLED,
ohn B, Scace Speaks to a Reporter of
Stirring Scenes Escaped With a
Slight Wound, But, Like Other
Veterans, Has Suffered Since
A Story That Reads
Like a Page From .
From the Albany, H, Y., Journal.
When one encounters in print the life
story of some scarred veteran of the
civil war, a feeling of admiration and
sympathy is the certain result. Accus
tomed though we are to tales of heroism
and snfflering in ' every-day life, there is
something peculiarly attractive about
these old war records, serving, as they
do, as a sacred passport to the heart of
every true American. Thousands found
their rest on the field of carnage or in
the hospital, but their comrades, when
the struggle was over and the victory
won, returned to their homes and began
anew the battle of life.
John B. Scace, the widely known con
tractor and building mover of Albany,
N. Y., when seen by a reporter recently
at his home, No. 15 Bradford street,
told of his many experiences and adven
tures while serving under the old flag in
the late war. Although having endured
all the hardships and privations of life
in the ranks, Mr. Scace bears his more
than half a century of years with an
elastic step and a keen mind, taking an
active interest in private and public af
fairs. Mr. Scace is a member of Berkshire
Lodge No. 2, 1. O. O. F. He enlisted in
the army in 1862, in Company A, Forty
ninth Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry,
serving under Colonel W. F. Bartlett,
First Brigade, First Division, Nineteenth
Corps, with which he participated in
some of the hottest battles of the war.
including Port Hudson, Donaldsonviiie
and flam btore, where he was wounded.
His time being out, he was discharged,
but soon re-eulisted as sergeant in Com
pany A, Sixty-first Regiment, Massa-
cnuseus volunteer infantry. He was in
the Dattle of Matcher's Run. the fiirht
about Petersburg and the battle of
sailor s ureek.
After his honorable discharge. June 4.
1865, Mr. Scace returned to Albany and
settled down once again to his business
and social interests. He has resided in
the city ever since. It would seem that
now, of all times, his peace and haopi
nesB would have been uninterrupted.
r. 1 ..... ...
ssucn was not to oe the case, for four
years ago, while engaged in superintend
ing tne raising ot the immense smoke
stack of the Albany Electric powerhouse
tne lever ot a loosened windlass struck
him a heavy blow across the back. The
effect of the blow was not at first appar
ent, he being able to leave bis bed in a
few days. But the worst was to follow,
for without warning he was seized with
sciatic rheumatism in all its virulence.
Untold agony followed.
aid Mr. hcace, 'I could not sleep for
the pain. No one will know the tortures
the rheumatism gave me. I don't know
how I lived during those days. I became
little more than skin and bones, and it
seemed like life didn't have anything but
suffering in it. Cures? I tried every so
called rheumatic cure that was ever invented-
I gave all of them a good trial
before I stopped taking them. My
friends and neighbors recommended rem
edy after remedy that they heard of, but
my rheumatism went on just the same.
v ell, alter l had almost had the life tor
tured out of me, I came across a news
paper account of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, and I thought I might as well add
another name to the list as not. so I or
dered some of my druggist.
"1 tell you, I was glad in those days to
hear of anything that could give meanv
relief at all. Yes, I got them, and be
fore I had taken two boxes that pain be
gan to leave me. Why, 1 couldn't under
stand it. I couldn't imagine myself be
ing cured. But before I had taken a half
dozen of those boxes I was cured. The
suffering which had made my life almost
unbearable for so long had disappeared.
I was a new man.
"1 began to gtt strong, I picked up
in flesh, and I went back to my business
with all the vigor and vim of a young
man. I think everyone who knows me
will tell you what it did for me. Pink
Pills is the grandest medicine ever dis
covered, and if my recommendation will
do it any good I want you to ue it. I
hope others will hear of it and be bene
fited as I have been. Everyone should
hear of it. I can't say too much for
them,'' Mr. Scace exclaimed, enthusias
tically in conclusion.
This is but one of the many cases in
which Pink Pills have taken such a be
neficent part in the history of humanity.
Mr. Scace is now enjoying the fruits of
an unusually large business, managed
solely by himself, and covering almost
the entire eastern portion of the state.
Mr. Scace is also an ivory carver of
marked ability, which he follows solely
for his own pleasure. Many little trink
ets, carved by the light of the camp-fire,
attest his skill in this direction.
Far from being solicited to recommend
the curative which had taken such a load
of misery from bis life, in his gratitude
his praise of it is unstinted and unceas
ing. And from bis own statement one
may easily see that when he does cease
to sing its virtues, jt will be to answer
the last mustering in
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain, in a
condensed form, all the elemonts neces
sary to give new life and richness to the
blood and restore shattered nerves.
They are also a specific for troubles pe
culiar to lemales, such as suppressions,
irregularities and all forms of weakness.
In men they effect -a radical cure in all
cases arising from mental worry, over
work or excesses of whatever nature.
Pink Pills are sold in boxes (never in
loose bulk) at 50 cents a box.or six box
esfor $2.50, and may be had of all drug
gists or directly by mail from Dr. Wil
liams' Medicine Company, Schenectady,
N. Y. . .

KICK AND FIND FAULT.
A Populist Who Thinks We Have
Too Many of Those Chaps.

Editor Independent: Herewith find
inclosed money order to apply on sub
scription. Times are very hard in this part of Ne
braska, and as this part of Hitchcock
county has had three failures in succes-
n, and endured Grover Cleveland,
John Sherman and the gold standard, I
presume you have some idea how scarce
money is with us at the present time.
Now, Mr. Editor, I have been a 'con
stant reader of the paper since 1890,
and while it baa always been a good pa
per, I must say that the present manage
ment suits my taste better than it baa
ever done before. I like your etyle of a
paper. We have too many papers that
call themselves populists that are afraid
to say that their souls are their own.
They run for weeks and months at a
time and never have a line of encourage
ment or speak a good word for the lead
ers of the party, but are ready at all
times to kick and find fault with the men
who have furnished the means and
pushed our noble cause to its present
standing. I say we have too many of
this class, and the sooner some of them
die the better it will be for the populist
Give us papers and give us men to lead
the party that are not afraid to stand
up for and maitain our rights, liberties
and freedom in this country like men.
In 1861 and lHo we had men that stood
np and fought that liberty and freedom
might live in this country. Did they
win or did they lose? We sometimes
think we lost, as the people of Nebraska
are in worse condition today than the
negro was before the war.
Now, Mr. Editor, I do not want to get
monotinous, but will try to be brief as
to my views on platforms and candi
dates. (Jive us the Omaha platform

posted men in the party, one of the best

convention see fit to select some other
good man, you will find J. P. Price do

NEBRASKA CROP REPORT.
AGiHf THERE WISE HEAVY BAINS
The Bri htest Prospeots Everywhere for
The week ending Monday, May 18,1896-
Rainfall for the Week.
H to 1
The week has been cool and cloudy, the
temperature averaging about three de
grees below the normal. Frosts were
general the latter part of the week but
were mostly light and did no damage
except in a few northern localities.
The rainfall has been very heavy over
the eastern third of the state, amount
ing to upwards of six inches over a con
siderable area. In the western part of
the state light rains have fallen general
ly. But little progress has been made in
farm work in the eastern part of the state
owing to the nearly eonstant rains and
the wet condition of the soil. There re
mains some corn still to plant in the
southern counties. In the central . part
of the state considerable progress has
been made during the week, jet there is
much planting to be done and some
ground to be plowed for corn. The
early planted corn over the state gener
ally is up and cultivation has begun in
the eastern, central and southern coun
ties. Some replanting of corn will be
necessary on account of washing by
heavy rains and by reason of the wet
condition of the soil.
Small grain has generally made good
growth, and in the eastern part of the
state is quite rank. Rye is everywhere
heading out, and ia the southern coun
ties wheat is beginning to head. Chinch
bugs, which were beginning to do some
damage, have mostly been destroyed by
the heavy rains. Grass and alfalfa have
grown vigorously, and in some cases are
large enough to cut for hay.
Fruit has suffered some damage from
the high winds and warm weather of the
early part of the week.

Bailee om Color laflnoaeos,
Balzac's curious speculations suggest
the extent to which color influences our
human life. He had noticed that a
woman who had a taste for orange or
green gowns was quarrelsome; one who
wore a yellow or black apparel, with
out apparent cause, was not to be trust
ed; preference for white showed a co
quette spirit; gentle and thoughtful
women prefer pink; women who regard
themselves as unfortunate prefer pearl
gray; lilac is the shade particularly af
fected by "oVer-ripe beauties"; where
fore, the great author held, lilao hats
are mostly worn by mothers on their
daughter's marriage day and by women
more than 40 years old when they go
visiting. These theories are founded
upon the principles of color, as already
laid down namely, that red and yellow"
excite; green, tempered by bine, is bil
ious; orange is fiery; gray is cold snd
melancholy; lilac is a light shade of
purple, the most retiring color of tha
scale. Popular Science News.
