GENERAL MEADE AT MINE RUN
Highly Promising Plan Ruined by
Blunders of Subordinates Thereby
In response to n query nuking for an
account of tho Mlno Run campaign
tho National Tribune makes the fol
The Mlno Run campaign was one
of the bcst-concelvcd movements ot
the war, but utterly failed on account
of the mismanagement of tho corps
commanders. November, 1863, flaw
what was virtually the end of tho
HettysburR campaign, with Its se
quelae of manuvers back and forth
from Alexandria to Orange Court
llouso. Gen. Meade saw that he had
Lee at a great disadvantage. I.ec had
Bent Longstreet's Corps to East Ten
nessee, and had loft only Ewcll's and
Hill's Corps. Ewell's CorpB was
watching the Rapldan In the neigh
borhood of Culpeper Court House,
whllo Hill's Corps was a day's march
away up tho river, den. Meade had
the Army of the Potomoc well In hand,
only 20 miles away around Culpeper
and Stevensburg, He conceived that
he could throw his army across the
river and overwhelm Ewell's Corps
before Hill could go to his assistance.
It was only a short day's march to
reach Ewell, and he could havo been
thrashed In a few hours. Meade care
fully worked out his plans, and If his
orders had been carried out a great
victory would havo resulted. The
movement was to begin at dawn of
Nov. 2(3, by the Fifth Corps, followed
by tho First Corps crossing the Rappa
hannock at Culpeper Mlno Ford and
marching to Parker's Store on the
Plank Road. The Second Corps was
to cross at Qcrmanna Ford and march
to Robertson's Tavern, where It was
to be Joined by the Third and Sixth
Corps crossing at Jacob's Mill Ford.
Meado expected his whole army to bo
united across the Rapldan and cut tho
flank of Leo's lntrenchments on Mine
Run, by noon of Nov. 27, and tho plan
had every prospect of success. The
first blunder was In the movement ol
the Third Corps, which, having n
greater distance to march, should have
started earliest, but as a matter of fact
was much behind Its time and delayed
tho whole army. The next was that
the engineers had not correctly meas
ured tho width of the Rapldan, and
the pontoon bridges were too short.
The banks of tho Rapldan were so
high and precipitous that they delayed
the march of tho artillery nnd cavalry
so that the whole of Nov. 27 passed
with less than half of tho dlstanco
having been traversed. In the mean
whllo Lee's signal officers. looking
down from Clark's Mountain, had de
tected tho movement, nnd Hill's Corps
was summoned back in haste to meet
It. In the meantime tho corps officers
were mistaking the roads and making
other blunders which prevented tho
concentration, nnd when tho army
was at last gotten together, Nov. 28.
It was found that the whole rebel
nrmy was in front nnd fortified along
tho crest of a rango of hills, which
made a nntur.il fortification In them
selves for six or eight miles. Tho
Confederates had their artillery sc
placed as to enfilade every lino of
approach. Tho corps commanders
each examined their fronts for possi
ble points of attack, and mado strong
reconnolssances, which cost a great
many men's lives. As nil the trains
had been left on the north side of the
Rapldan In anticipation of a quick,
sharp movement, the army was now
out of rations, and Meade saw frus
trated his hopes of ending the Get
tysburg campaign by a decisive vic
tory, lie therefore ordered the army
to return to Its camps around Cul
peper. Ho wanted to move his army
to Fredericksburg, which would have
been nn excellent manuver, and
placed Lee at a disadvantage, but he
was prevented by Halleck's orders not
to mako any change of base without
authority from Washington.
Lee's 811m Animal.
President Lincoln on June 14, 18G3,
wrote Gen. Hooker:
"So far as wo can mnko out hero
tho enemy has Mllroy surrounded at
Winchester and Tyler at Martinsburg,
If they could hold out a few days
could you help them? If tho head of
Lee's army is at Martinsburg and the
tall of It on tho plank road between
Fredericksburg and Chancellorsvllle,
tho animal must bo very slim some
where Could you not break him?"
How Could He Stop Him?
An Irish recruit In the mounted In
fantry got on a high-mettled horse and
,lt ran away with him. Ono of his com
panions called to him to stop him.
"Arrah, now," cried ho, "how can I

HOW TO WHITEN THE THROAT
Lemon Juice or a Ripe Tomato Will
Remove Any Discoloration!
Alcohol to Harden.
Shapeliness Is not all that is neces
sary to tho making of a throat beauti
ful. Tho texturo of tho skin must bo
flno and soft, white and unblemished.
Cleanliness Is the first essential. A
good thorough scrubbing with a not too
soft brush, hot water and soap, once or
twice a week, will do no harm, the rest
of tho tlrno using the ordinary cloth.
Apply lemon julco or a rlpo tomato to
any discoloration that may appear,
and unless tho pores are enlarged,
use cold cream freely.
Alcohol will harden tho flesh. As
for the various bleaches, thero are
some that are harmless, except Insofar
as they invariably are drying, which
ultimately leaves tho skin harsh and
brash. Here is ono that can easily bo
made at home, but, like the others, it
ts drying, so be euro to counteract this
effect by applying cold cream after
using It. Mix half an ounce of perox
ide ot hydrogen, six ounces of witch
hazel and half an ounce of lactlo acid.
Apply thla with a soft cloth.

ornate nnd stmplo effects. Almost all
parasolB are mado with eight panels,
and half a dozen skeins of cotton aro
needed for embroidering each panel

or six dozen skeins, therefore would
bo sufficient for any parasol. Tho big

A rubber coat can bo nicely cleaned
by tho use of automobile soap, a Jel
lyllko substuueo of dark color, which
can bo procured at any automobile
supply Btoro or at a garage.
Tho soap can bo used for other
garments also, as It does not injure
tho finest finished material, but the
effect seeniB better on rubberized
goods. The first step In cleaning is
to make a strong lather. Clean tho
coat thoroughly and then apply the
soap over a small portion of tho gar
ment. Carefully wash off the soap
by sponging with clear water and pro
ceed to next space to be cleaned. Dry
out of doors.
