RED CLOUD, NEBRASKA, CHIEF
6TH CGffPS AT FORT STEVENS
Member of Ird Vermont Relates 8omi
Personal Experiences Notables
Wlti eased Fighting.
Tho nrtlclo published recently In
regard to placing n Inrgo stono at
Fort Stevens ns n memorial to tho
battle of .July 12. 1864, cnlls to mind
Rome personal experiences there. An
a member of tho old Vermont brigade
I had beon nil through tho strenuous
cnmimlgn from tho Wilderness to
Petersburg, and wab several weeks on
that line, when on July 9 we had or
ders to move to City Point. This we
found to Include tho whole Sixth
Corps, or nt least what had not al
ready gone. Wo marched In tho night
a distance of about fourteon miles,
then took transportation to Washing
ton, nrrlvlng on tho 11th, writes
George A. Farrlngton of Company A,
3rd Vermont, of Elgin, 111., In tho Na
General Early had been sent Intc
Maryland to creato a scare, so as tc
compel General Grant to weaken hl
line In front of Petersburg, and this
force had already arrived at tho line
of forts nround Washington. As w
inarched through the city tho citizens
were much relieved. As wo passed ur
Seventh street wo were welcomed It
a truly friendly manner, and th
Greek cross never looked so good bo
foro to nny people.
General Gordon has said: "On Julj
tl, 18G4, tho second clay after tho bat
tie of Monacncy, wo wrm at the de
fenses of Wnshlngton. We were
nearer to the nntlonnl capital than
any armed Confederates had ever
been, and nearer to It thnn and fed
eral army had been to Richmond. 1
myself rodo to a point on those
brenstworks at which there was no
force In sight. Tho unprotected spnee
was broad enough for tho easy pasBngo
of Early's army without resistance.
Undoubtedly we could have marched
Into Washington, but In tho council
of war called by General Early there
was not a dissenting opinion as to the
Impolicy of entering tho city."
After the Sixth Corps had taken a
position and had time to get ready a
strong line waB moved forward short
ly after 4 o'clock, July 12. and a
Bharp fight took place, In which the
Union loss was 280 and the loss on
the other side was about the same.
It Is said that this battle took place
In the presence of a more distinguish
ed group of spectators than witnessed
any othor action of tho war. Presi
dent and Mrs. Lincoln, Secretary Stan
ton and other members of the cabinet
and several ladles camo out to Fort
Stevens during tho afternoon to seo
some nctual fighting, and Mr. Lincoln
remained during tho action. I chanced
to bo In tho lino a few rods to tho
left of Fort Stevens, and know when
Mr. Lincoln was there, but I did not
nee him. Wo were nil busy wntchlng
the effects of the Inrge shells from
the fort nnd expecting to bo ordered
forward at any moment.
This battle wns tho flrst of tho cam
paign In tho Shenundoah valley,
which culminated nt Cedar Creek un
der Gen. Sheridan. After tho work
was dono in tho valley wo returned
to tho llneB In front of Petersburg,
and well do I romember the trip from
Harper's Ferry to Washington on a
cold winter night on a platform car.
In tho morning wo were covered with
about six Inches of snow.
TO BUY ANTIETAM LANDMARK
9unkard Church on Battlefield May
Sold to Government to Be Used
It Is now said on good authority
that the United States government Is
desirous of acquiring the old Dunkard
church on Antletam battlefield, and
that the war department will use It
as an office. If It can be purchased, ac
cording to the Baltimore News.
The church is a small, rough cast
structure, built In 1851, and it Is lo
cated along the Hageretown and
Sharpsburg turnpike, near Bloody
Lane. It Is still used for services by
tho Manor congregation, Church of
tho Brethren, nnd the congregation
wishes to dispose of tho property.
Tho title to the church, however,
Is complicated, as tho deed or gift for
tho slto irom Samuel Mumma provid
ed that it be used by tho Church of
tho Brethren to erect a house of pub
lic worship thereon and hold therein
their services. Any deviation from
this purpose would, In the opinion of
lawyers, cause title to rovert to tho
Mumma helrB, who aro numerous and

Colonel Yergers wife was a con
stant source of embarrassment to him.
Colonel Yergor once gave a dinner
party to a few select ladles and gen
tlemen. Of course, he was called upon
for an after-dinner Bpeech. Colon
Yerger got up and began:
"Ladles and gentlemen, unprepared
as I am being wholly unprepared to
make a speech not having expect
ed" Thero waB a painful silence,
which was broken by Mrs. Yerger.
"Why, Colonel, you knew your
speech perfectly this morning."

This Is an extremely smart coat of
black satin; tho style is one, however,
that may bo copied quite well in pop

sultablo for day or evening weur. Our
model Is lined throughout with black
mervo, which has tho advantago over
a colored lining that It looks well with
a dress of any color, and is really bet

front is braided at edge with silk
braid, and Is lightly draped up at low

are both at edge.
The hat has a crown of dark mauve

neither distinctly rose nor amethyst,
but a blending of tho two, Is found
chiefly In tho seml-preclous stones of
translucent composition and brilliant
luster such as aro used far necklaces,
chains and lorgnette holders, as well
as for hatpin tops and toilet pins of
a minor character. Hessonlte, con
sidered as a color, somewhat partakes
of tho futurists Idea of shado blend

tones so melt Into each other that It
