Itcuiinhcenrc! of Army I.I re.
(1IV A IMIIVATK.)
Tlio dangers of war arc not confined
to fac'ng tlio enemy in battle. Noth
ing is ho irksome, nor so dangerous to
health and morals as tlio inactivity
incident to lying in camp for a consid
erable length of tinio. Not that they
aro "anxious for the fray," that sol
diers soon weary of lying in camp,
but that tho routine duties of Iho
camp occupy but little of tho time,
and soon become so monotonous that
one may well iiotc, "Slowly the lag
cing moments drag their weary length
along." To thoso who caro to read
and study, and write letters to their
friends, l ing in ramp is not so dull,
but they too, suffer loss of health of
body, if not of umals, as a consc
iiucnoe of inactivity. There are al
wajs some, however, who prefer lving
in camp to marching, especially it
moving in the dircotion of danger;
and many arc the expedients resorted
to by I ho "play-offs" to keep from go
ing out on a scout or foraging expe
dition. The story is told of ono of
our men, that when ho was ordered to
get ready tor a little Ecout in the di
rection of the enemy ho shot ono of
his tocB iff, accidentally, ho said, but
it was currently reported and believed
that he did it deliberately and inten
tionally to nvoid tho great danger of
being bhot by a rebel bullet in some
more vital part of his anatomy.
I havo known men to feign sickness
to avoid going into a battle, or on a
march in the direction of the enemy,
and it was often said perhaps truth
fully that moro men attended tho
"sick call" on such occasions than at
other times. Sometimes I did'nt feel
ycry will myself. Malingering, or
feigning sickness was generally easily
detected, but was sometimes so euc
o:ssfully practiced as to deceive the
surgeon and escape detection until
tho dancer ws over, or tho long
sought discharge ftom the scrvioo was
granted. I remember two such cases
that oocurred while wo wcro at Benton
Barracks, near the city of St. Louis.
I do vol n member tho namo of either,
nor tho reg'ment to which cither ono
Both jverc young men and had tlio
appcaranco of being sound in body
and mind except in regard to tho par
ticular maladies for which they wore
discharged. The first I will mention
complained of a disorder of tho spinal
cord, which I believe tho surgeons
pronouncod ''locomotor ataxj" at
least that was ono of tho different
names suggcstd for his ailment. Al
though ho looked well, ho was or
seemed to be. unablo to walk without
a cane, and his movements wore un
steady and uncertain. He seemed to
bo not only willing but anxious to do
his duty as a soldier, and was never
heard to express any desiro to go home,
but ho bcctucd to want to bo cured
whilo in the service at the expense of
tho government. Ho was intelligent,
and though not exactly cheerful, ho
was not moroso or despondent, Ho
was closely watched by tho surgeons
and others who weie appointed for
that purposo as detectives, but was
never ftccn to movo a step without his
Tho papers for liU disohargo wcro
finally m.tdo out, propeily signed and
countersigned, and ho left tho bar-
racks on foot, his oano in ono hand

without any apporcnt improvement in
his lumotiesB, Ho was watched for
homo distance, a fact of which ho prob-

at tho edgo of the city. S-omo who
knew him saw him walking briskly
and apparently without difficulty, in
tho dircotion of the steam-boat land
ing whero ho would tako passage fur
his home. I said ho got well about
three miles from camp for his com
rades who saw him in the city, on
their return to camp found his cane
whioh thoy all knew leaning against
a fence, and brought it back to camp
with them. Ilia sudden recovery did
not surprise thesurgcons; for although
they had discharged him with tho na
ture of his disability duly set forth iu
his papors, they wcro of tho tho opin
ion that he was "playing off", but as
they wcro not sure of it, they deemed
it better to givo him tho benefit of the
doubt, and send him home, than to
tako tl c risk of punishing an innocent
man as a malingerer. Tho other case
referred to was of a man who success
fully feigned insanity, which was per
haps a more retuarkablo caso than tho
ono just related, This man spent his
time fishing with a hook and line,
but not in the river, but on dry land.
Ho would sit for houni at a time go
ing through tho motions of fishing and
seemed indifferent to everything
around him, utid would manifest no
emotion of my kind whatever. He
would not get angry when abused, nor
show fear when in danger, acting very
much as somnambulists arc sometimes
said to act. The receipt of his dis
charge papers did not seem to make
any impression on him. At first ho
did not seem to realize what tho pa
pers wcro for. and instead of putting
them in his pocket ho hung them on
his fish hook, and coutinuod his fish
ing as usual for sorao minutes, when
ho jerked his lino as if ho had caught
a fish. After dangling his papers in
tho air for some timo ho cooly said,
"all, d in you, you aro vdiat 1 have
been fishing for these many dnys, and
now thnt 1 havo caught yon, 1 guess
tho fishing seisou is about over, nnd I
will go homo and see tho folks. Many
inoonsidcrato persons aro ready to
censure tho surgeons for being thus
deceived and iuipo3cd upon,. bat 1
havj no doubt they did right in these
cases. Thoy aro not really so much
deceived as it might seem. Thoy be
lieved both men wcro iinpostcrf, but
they wcro not sure of it beyond a
rcasonablo doubt, and chose to err on
tho side of humanity and charity, if
they erred at all. And besides thnt
it was ovidnnt that they nivor would
hayo been of any servico to Iho gov
ernment if kept in tho army, but
would havo been a heavy expense, not
only in having to bo paid their month
ly wages, hut also requiring tho time
of others to care for them.

Allied AkiiIiinI the VctcraiiN,
Veterans of tho lalo war who draw
pensions for wounds or disabilities
caused by servico rendered to tho
Nation may prepare for tho worst.
Cleveland appointed a Union-soldier-hating
man to be Secretary of the department
that controls tho bureau of pensions.
Mow bitterly hostile to tho Union sol
dier who draws pension that depart
ment has been is a matter of record.
Thousands of deserving veterans,
old, crippled, and poverty-stricken,
havo found tho severity of tho pres
ent panic increasod by tho sudden
stoppago of the petty rovenuo that
they drew from what had been, until
the advont of Mr. Cleveland, n grate
ful government. The President evi
dently appointed Mr. Iloko Smith, of
lioorgia, with full knowledge of what
his unfriendly intentions to tho pen
sioners were, and ho has taken pains
to express his approval of the acts in
to which these intentions havcriponod.
When a democratic Congressman from
a Northern state informed tho Presi
dent that "this must stop or tho party
ho defeated nt the next election"
meaning by "this" the unjust perse
cution of veterans by Smith of Geor
gia tho President retorted that Smith
was tho apple of his own eye, the Cab
inet officer in whom ho most trusted,
Tho president fs in hearty accord with
tho acts of Smith ot 'Georgia.
Tho conspiracy against tho pension
ors seems to bo perfected by tho ap
pointment of another Georgian, Mosca
by name, to be chaitinan of tho Houso
ooiiiniitteo on pensions, Of all tho
soldicrj of the Union tu Congress ono
might have been chosen to pren'.do
over tho deliberations of tho commit
tee to which ponsion questions and
appropiiat'ons aro referred. But that
was not to be. Tho South is in tho
saJdlo and the veterans of tho Union
armies aro to feel its spurs.
Tho only weapon at hand is patience.
Smith of Georgia and Cleveland of
New York must be endured for nearly
fuur years; but little more than ayorr
hence will bo Congressional elections
in which the protesting and warning
voice of the pcoplo will bo heard.
But between now and thon many a
deserting ponsioner will bu deprived
of cr abridged iu his present means of
suppoit. It is a discouraging outlook;
but it is well to bo prepared for tho
worst. Tho present administration
and tho present lmjotity in Congrrs)
