While these "reniiiiiseeiicps" may
pioui "lilling." the writer has serious
doubts as to their being 'Vutisfylng" to
the leaders of Tin: Cmi.i'.oreven to the
writer himself. Hut, having been often
asked to do no, I will at this late day
ventuie to write of some of tho inci
dents of that memorable period, from
"01 to 'li.), as 1 inay be able to reeall them
without tho aid of any journal or diary,
So much has already been said and
written, most of it truthfully, but some
oi li otherwise. Unit it would n'eni tin
necessary to add unj tiling more, as well
as supeilluous to repeat what has been
better told or written by others. Not
wishing to impose upon or deceive it
credulous and conllding public, 1 will
hero state that I tun not tho man who
put down the rebellion, nor am I one of
the many who think that without their
valuable services the war would have
I enlisted as a private in the summer
of IStil at lllooiulleld. lowa.iu theThitd
Iowa Cavalry, served a little oer three
jours, during which time I was never
piomoted for gallantry on thu buttle
Held for meritorious conduct, nor for
any other cuiite, but was discharged at
the close of my term of service with
rank one lemovo below that of corporal.
1 do not at this late date feel disposed to
charge my superior olllcers with favorit
ism. nor with having madu mistakes iu
I do not claim, nor do I believe that
ours was tho "best regiment,'' and had
the bravest olllcers aud men, and did
more toward saving the union than nnj
other: but I do claim and believe that
wo had as good a hot of olllcers and as
good soldiers as any in the service.
I'tominent among the ollicers I will
mention our lirst colonel, Cvrus Husscv,
Lieut. Col. 11. M. Trimble, and John W.
Noble, who wuh at tho organization of
the regiment, adjutant.
Col. IJiishoy was promoted to the rank
of lirigadier General, which he held
with distinction to tho close of the war.
Sutce tho war. ho was Chief of the Pen-
on Bureau during Harrison's adminls
tration. which position ho tilled with
John W. Noble wiib successively pro
moted to the ollices of major, lieutenant
colonel, colonel and brigadier general,
all of which he tilled with honor, and
was Secretary of the Interior during
Harrison's administration. I think it
sitfo to say that no man during and since
the war has held as many important no-
BJXfius with more honor and ability, and
us in everv notation more imiveiniillv
loved aud admired by the common sol
diery than Gen. Niible.
From tho private ranks also, many
have risen to honorable positions, of
which J will mention but ono or two at
present, but may speak of them and
others more nt length iu it future chap
John D. Pickler. a member of Com
pany !)., was promoted from the ranks to
several ollices in his company, and is at
present a member of congress from
li Duicotu. Hon. li.lv. Ulianey or
ted Cloud wiim a private poldier in Co. I
of our regiment. I havo mentioned
these fow among tho many who havo
risen to positions of honor from that
one regiment, not to boast of its honor
able aud inlliiential men, but to show
that it was not inferior iu its make-up to
other good regiments.
The history of our regiment, liko that
of all others, was a continued round of
promotions from its organization to thu
close of tho war. Promotions wero fre
quently thu occasion for much jealousy
and dissatiBfuution, even when they were
made in the regular order. For instance,
if a colonel was promoted, tho Lieut.
Col. would iu regular order be promoted
to thu ollico of colonel and then ono of
the majors would be promoted to the
lieutenant colonelncy, and which one
was often a source of much dissension,
as it was not always clear who was tho
senior major, or tho ranking major, in
military parlance. The major's promo
tion mado room for a captain to taku his
place and then would arisn the ques
tion, who is the ranking captain ? And
so on down to the lowest commissioned
olllccr, whoso promotion iiiukos it place
for a non-commissioned olllcer, and soon
down to Uv lowest position.
In the rcguluiv army, promotions nre
mudo strictly, or nearly bo, according to
prescribed rules and regulations, and
cause but littlo friction. Rut in tho vol
unteer Bervico, it is otherwise; not that
there aro no "regulations" by which they
should bo governed, but because there
aro opportunities for favoritism, and so
many UHpirants for each promotion that
many uro necessarily disappointed.
There wero some of thofio promotions so
very unjust, or thought to bo bo, that in
surrections wero imminent, ono instance
of which occurred in my company, to
which I will brielly allude. After our
regiment hud been several months in
active service, there was a call for volun
teers to till our broken ranks, to which
several from a curtain neighborhood in
Iowa responded, among whom wiib ono
P. M. Ross, a conservative democrat, and
a good citizen, who was tho leader, I
suppose, of tho several who came in with
him. There was a demand for recruits
from outsido the company, but not to fill
tho otllces, for there wero already in tho
company uioro men ready for promotion
than ulaces to bo tilled. Hut iu tho case
alluded to, P. M. Ross was at onco made
second lieutenant as a reward, I suppose,
for enlisting a few men an recruits. Ho
mudo a good ollicer, and wiib well liked
by most of tho company, but 1 think
somo of those over whom ho had been
so unjustly promoted never becanio rec
onciled, and l do not ulumo tliem, An
other migrant abuse of power in making
promotions, and ono that made quite a
stir throughout tho regiment, was the
appoint men t of G. W. Johnson to u cap
taincy in Co. M of our regiment, when
tlio company had plenty of good materi
al for promotion, i will speak of this
caso in my next Installment, if the print
ers do not go back on mo.
lief ore dismissing thu subject of pro
motions, 1 will incidentally remark that
promotions seem to havo gono ou quite
steadily hIiicu tho war closed, which fact
will, I stippobo, account for tho very largo
per centago of colonels, majors and cap
tains to ho met with at our iu. unions,
These promotions aro still going on
tho captains of a few years ugo now be
ing majors, and thu majors, colonels.
Many of these wero only private soldiuis
during tho war. These promotions do
not cause much trouble, and besides
tickling tho ears of those who bear these
higli-Houiiding titles, they servo it pur
pose, which iB thut of securing u right
to the platform at our re unions and it
chunce to make u speech or tell a camp-
Willlca tor Tiu: i'
lire story, the colonels, majors and chap
lains being lu greatest demand, or rather
are the chief speakers on such occasions.
Hut 1 think it is time to call it halt lest
there be more of the titled class than
can got a hearing: and if we are all pro
moted, where will be the private soldiers
to do the cheering ? For that seems to
be about all they are needed for of late
A Novr.i. Si'ii'tOK. -One of the sad
dest and most peculiar suicides over ie
corded, occurred about six miles south
east of Campbell. In this county, Mon
day night. July Mist, The facts appear
as follows: John Hruy a farmer iu
moderate eireumntances. with Mm lived
his son and daughter, both gntttn, and
on this night had left home to 'spend a
tew Hours, and returning at II p. in.
found their father lying iu tho door iu a
pool of blood. Around his neck was a
small rope or string and examination
showed a loop iu the middle of the
string, and each end securely fastened
to a strongbox elder sprout. This was
a most novel way to suicide as the vic
tim evidently sprung the box elder
stick together and after slipping the
loop around his nrck, let loose the stick
which instantly began tho process of
strangulation which evidently caused
his death, lu his right hand was n
large jnck-knife, very sharp, and al
though careful inspection showed no
wounds, it was the general supvosition
that it was his intention to assist with
the knife if the string method proved in
adequate. Tho jury comprised of the
following well known citizens relumed a
verdict of "death by strangulation liv
his own hands." G. P. Gather, C. W.
Ludgren. O. E. Raiuey, L. G.Genereaitx,
H. P. May. and W. T. Montheny. As to
the cause of his rash act no one exactly
knows. Hut possibly a combination of
adversities caused the despondent mo
ments which led him to commit the
deed. Mr. Dray was an old eltized of
Webster county, and Ihb death is de
plored. See Myers
Tin: CiioitD or Sympathy. For a
great many years thete has not occurred
in Webster county, such a great calami
ty as has befallen tho family of our
highly esteemed anil much respected
friend, llev. Geo. W. Huininel, by which
thu Angel of Death has invaded his
home and plucked therefrom two of ittt
fairest tlowers, by that dreaded disease,
typhnid.djsontcry. Only a few days
ago tho bereaved homo wan tilled with
happy voices, to-day, there aro two va
cant chairs, and a family in tears.
About two weeks ago, Dr. McKoeby was
called to the home of Mr. Hummel, to
see his two youngest children supposed
to be ailing from the usual diseases in
cident to joting children, but which
soon developed into alarming symptoms,
ami aiinougu mo nest medical care was
taken of them, jot tho Grim Reaper
claimed them for his own, and they
passed from earth to heaven within a
fow brief hours of each other, their lit
tle bodies being placed side by side in
the family cemetery, thus leaving an
aching void lu that once hupyy homo
that time cannot possibly heal1
Death is remorseless in its demands, and
iu this instance it seems to havo singled
out of ono household, tho bright jewels
for his own. Surloy no words of ours
could bo uttered that would still the
throbbing bosoms of those who have
passed through the crucial test, yet, iu
the times of sorrow, the family have tho
deepest sympntiitea or tiieir many
friends and tlie consolation that there
is a future beyond tho blue, and tht.t
hearts that havo been rendered in twain
hero will receive the comforting solace
uixin tho promises that have been
vouchsafed in holy writ. While death
has thus enlisted the family of Mr.
Hummel, twice, it third child has been
hovering with its life in tho balance,
but at this writing, holies uro enter
tained of Its recovery. Wo hopo it may
bo bo. Tin: Chief extends to Mr. nnd
