GRAND ISLAND The harvesting

beets will be on hand
The early part of the season was
very unfavorable, owing to the sur-
plus of moisture and water, beets in
low places particularly having to be
replanted. The fall season has been
quite moist also causing a slowness
in ripening, but the entire season has
been somewhat more to the advantage
of the farmer, the beets growing large
and heavy, making a big tonnage per
acre, and since the contracts are for a
flat price, regardless of the per cent of
sugar, over a certain minimum which
only the poorest of beets do not over
take, the result of the season's grow
ing is probably more in favor of the
! farmer than of the factory. However,
a profitable season for both is at this

The murmur of the earth's own shell.

Is the sea's end; our sight may pass
No furlong further. Since time was.
This sound hath told the lapse of time.
No quiet, which is death's it hath
The mournfulness of ancient life.
Enduring always at dull strife.
As the world's heart of rest and wrath.
Its painful pulse in the sands.
Last utterly, the whole sky stands.
Gray and not known, along its path.
Listen alone beside the sea.
Listen alone among the woods;
Those voices of twin solitudes
Shall have one sound alike to thee;
Hark where the murmurs of thronged
Surge and sink back and surge again
Still the one voice of wave and tree.
Gather a shell from the strown beach
And listen to its lips; they sigh
The same desire and mystery.
The echo of the wince sea's speech.
And all mankind is thus at heart
Not anything but what thou art:
And Earth, Sea. Man. are all in each.

"In talking about the Grand Army
organization, Sons of the Revolution
and kindred societies." says the ven
erable John Wentworth of Medford,
Mass.. "I think I am entitled to mem
bership in them all, though belonging
to none, as my grandfather. Reuben
Wentworth, was a Maine soldier from
Shapleigh at Bunker hill; my father
Ephraim Wentworth, also of Shap
leigh, served as an enlisted man in
the war of 1S12; I myself twice en
listed in the late civil war, once in
Co. E, 41st Mass. Vols., serving four
teen months; second in the veteran
reserve corps, serving fifteen months;
while three of my sons enlisted in
three different Massachusetts regi
ments in 1861 and 18G2, and the pres
ent descendants of the family, liable
for military duty, are all ready for
the next war.
"A greater part of my long life has
been spent in Massachusetts. When
I enlisted at Salem in August. 1862, I
was barely within the limit of 45
years. My regiment was shipped to
Louisiana, where it remained as long
as I continued with it, the swamps
and the bayous along the Mississippi
proving too much for me, putting me
on the sick list and out of active duty
to such an extent that I asked for and
received my discbarge in November,
1863. But I was at Port Hudson dur
ing the siege, previously in the fight
at Baton Rouge, and saw much of the
actual horrors of war, and the condi
tion of our troops at Port Hudson was
of such a desperate nature that if
the fort had not surrendered at about
the time it did. it is difficult to tell
what might have happened. It was
a hard place indeed for northern men
to perform the duties of a soldier, to
say nothing of the bullets of the en
emy, and the fall of Vicksburg was a
most fortunate thing for the army of
Banks in front of Port Hudson.
"In August. 18G4, I again enlisted
in the service, this time in the veter
an reserve corps, and was finally sta
tioned at Washington on guard duty,
and there I had one of the most ex
citing experiences of my whole time
in the service. It was the night the
president was shot by Booth. I was
at my quarters with other members
of my company, when one of our ser
geants who bad been at Ford's thea
ter that evening, rushed breathlessly
into the room, shouting. 'The presi
dent has been shot. Every man turn
out at once!'
"We all immediately mustered for
duty, marched down in the direction
of the White House, and meeting an
officer he ordered us to report at the
home of Secretary Stanton for guard
duty. Soon the streets were full of
officers riding in every direction and
small bodies of troops marching.
"All the while we were making our
way to Stanton's house the rumors
were flying about thick and fast. The
president was said to be dying, the
whole cabinet was marked for slaugh
ter. Vice President Johnson had been
attacked and Grant was on the list of
"Our company, however, kept righl
on to its ordered destination, reaching
Mr. Stanton's home without any trou
ble, and our officers, satisfying them
selves that the great war secretary
was safe inside, made such disposition
of the company as the circumstances
"Every man of us was depressed by
the death of Mr. Lincoln, as it was
only two weeks before his fated visit
to Ford's theater that he received and
shook hands with our entire regimen
tal organization. The president stood
in the hallway of the White House
while we marched in the front door,
passed him with a handshake, and
filed out at the rear door. Then,
again, we often saw the president on
the street, usually with a mounted
guard, while Gen. Grant we often met
smoking his inevitable cigar, and he
often bade us a respectful good morn
ing with the customary salute."
Jules Lumbard's Songs.
A big. deep-chested, fine-looking old
man, with long snow white hair fall
ing in profusion over broad shoulders,
erect, dignified, chivalrous, courtly
this is Jules Lumbard, the famous
singer who, with his splendid voice,
did so much to inspire patriotism anc
to recruit the army in the dark and
troublous days of the civil war, and
who was in Denver to sing before the
veterans assembled in national en
campment there the old songs that
are so dear to their hearts and that
he sang to so good purpose forty odd
j ears ago.
Mr. Lumbard has been a conspicu
ous figure at many national encamp
ments of the Grand Army of the Re
public. Despite his advanced years,
his voice has lost little of its reso
nance and power, and veterans of the
civil war love that great voice as
they love no other.
One afternoon in the summer of
1862, 5,000 men were crowded into the
old court house square in Chicago.
ExCitement at the North was at fever
heat. Recruits were signing by tV
hundred in Chicago every dav The
5,000 men crowded into thp old court
house square were listening to
saeches speeches full of fire and
elt.ueace of patriotism. Jules Lun-
' ' ""m. si 'm.
bard, a big, handsome young fellow,
came elbowing his way through the
crowd and mounted the platform. Just
as he went up the steps George F.
Root slipped a sheet of paper into his
"Sing it," he cried eagerly. "It is
just written." The ink was not yet
"I will." said Jules Lumbard.
The singer felt his voice grow in
his throat. He went to the front of
the platform, flung his hat aside,
gave one glance at the simple words
and music of the song he held in his
hand, and then in those resonant
tones, then at their strongest and
best, he taught "The Battle Cry of
Freedom" to 5,000 men. That night
the recruiting station was full.
More than a quarter of a century
later Jules Lumbard again sang- that
same song in Chicago. It was on the
occasion of the services held at the
Coliseum in memory of the man who
had composed It. As he stepped upon
the platform the great building shook
with applause. The ovation would
have gladdened the heart of a king.
For a long time Jules Lumbard was
western agent for an eastern railroad
with an office here. He was retired
from the service of the railroad on a
pension a year or two ago, and then he
was admitted to the bar and began
the practice of law. Several days ago

When only a lad Jules Lumbard
went as printer's "devil" into the of
fice of the Ashtabula (Ohio) Sentinel.
That was the organ of Joshua R. Gid
dings. and the spirit of that fearless
partisan impregnated the whole of
fice so that it made an abolitionist of
the very office cat. It certainly made
one of the "devil."
Later he became fascinated with
the science of telegraphy and became
an adept operator. He was the tutor
of John Van Horn, for many years
vice president of the Western Union
Mr. Lumbard sang in Henry Ward
Beecher's church and in Dr. Taylor's
tabernacle in New York and- became
famous for his singing of sacred
music. The organlike quality of his
voice was regarded as phenomenal.
He sang "Elijah" with Parepa, and
he sang with Emma Thursby, with
Whitney, with Julia Korthall, with
Castle and Campbell and with Taglia
petie. Branded as a Coward.
About the most distressing sight in
war times is the odium heaped upon
a man whose flagrant act of cowardice
has become so notorious that the dis
cipline of the army demands he be
made a public example. Such a thing
happened at Suffolk, Va., in 18G3. A
soldier deserted a thin skirmish line
and fled ignominiously to the rear.
The desertion was witnessed by so
many and the culprit was so heedless
regarding the publicity of his shame
ful behavior it became absolutely nec
essary to show the soldiers what
cowardice in the face of the enemy
meant. So the army was lined up on
both sides of the street, the frightened
soldier stripped of his uniform and
boards bearing the word "Coward"
were hung to his breast and back. On
either side was a soldier carrying a
musket. In the rear walked a drum
mer playing the "Rogue's March." As
the coward passed through the lines
the soldiers jeered. He did not dare
raise his eyes. Had he possessed a
particle of manhood he would have
preferred death ten times over to
such humilition, but he seemed to be
one of those curious freaks we run
across now and then in whom every
sense of pride is absolutely extinct.
He passed on down the line, out Into
the fields and thence buried himself
in the woods, a man without a home
and without a country.
How Blackmar Saved His Life.
This story is told at the expense
of the late Gen. Wilmon W. Black
mar: Gen. Blackmar was attending
a camp, when he was approached by
a seedy-looking man, who greeted him
profusely. The general shrugged his
shoulders and turned away, with the
remark that they were not acquainted.
"But, general." said the stranger,
"don't you remember how you saved
my life at the battle or the Wilder
ness." Gen. Blackmar at once became in
terested and he called a group of his
comrades over to listen, saying: "I
saved this man's life once. How was
it done, old comrade?"
"It was this way," was the response.
"We were on a hill and the enemy
advanced steadily toward our en
trenchments. A veritable hail of fire
swept our position. Suddenly you
turned" here the auditors were ab
sorbed and excited "and ran. and I
ran after you. I think that if you
hadn't shown the example I would
have been killed that day." Boston
Wisconsin's War Governor.
In these later years I recall with a
feeling of pride and gratitude that
Wisconsin was particularly fortunate
in having just the right man at the

been wonderfully blessed with the

Gossip Going Out
It is no lonser considered good form
to say a word against any one. An
ill-natured criticism is a social blun
der. Gossip, too, is really going out
of fashion. True wit is a gift, not an
attainment. Those who use it aright
never yield to the temptation of say

Cured Her Rheumatism.
Deep Valley, Pa., Oct. 2d. (Spe
cial.) There is deep interest in Green
county over the cure of the littlu
daughter of I. N. Whipkey of Rheuma
tism. She was a great sufferer for
five or six years and nothing seemed
to do her any good till she tried
Dodd's Kidney Pills. She began to
improve almost at once and now sho
is cured and can run and play as other
children do. Mr. Whipkey says:
"I am indeed thankful for what
Dodd's Kidney Pills have done for my
daughter; they saved her from being
a cripple perhaps for life."
Dodd's Kidney Pills havo proved
that Rheumatism is one of the results
of diseased Kidneys. Rheumatism is
caused by Uric Acid In the blood. If
the Kidneys are right there can be ao

Worse Cured by Cuticura
"A scab formed on my baby'3 face,
spreading until it completely covered
her from head to foot, followed by
boils, having forty on her head at one
time, and more on her body. Then
her skin started to dry up and it be
came so bad she could not shut her
eyes to sleep. One month's treatment
with Cuticura Soap and Ointment
made a complete cure. Doctors and
medicines had cost over $100. with
baby growing worse. Then we spent
less than $5 for Cuticura and cured
her. (Signed) Mrs. G. H. Tucker. Jr..

Medicines Have Stood Test of Time.
"The leading proprietary medicines
that have stood the test of time are
of known therapeutic value." says a
medical authority. "They are prepar
ed in laboratories of the highest
grade, under the care of skilled phar
macists, and they are made from ap
proved formulas which, in maay in
stances, have been the especial pride
and specific of some successful physi
cian. They have been tried in the
crucible of public opinion and they
have been found satisfactory by the
people, for otherwise the people would
discontinue using them."
