LINCOLN , Oct. 13. J
The growth of Lincoln during the past
lummer has hardly been comprehended.
While not marvelous , It has been steady and
tubstantial and greatly beyond the general
idea. A great many nice cottages have been
built that are not taken Into account In
minmtng up the real growth of the city
'luring ' the season , Just on the eve of closing.
It Is Impossible to give the exact number , but
hy will sum up into the hundreds. And ,
,00 , the ground work has been laid for the
erection of some of the finest mansions to bo
found anywhere in the west. The Phillips
residence in the southeast partjaf the city ,
when fliiNhuil , will knock the eye out of $73-
000. A dozen or so more have been built
\nat will avrrqifo In eost price fully $10,000.
But the figures of Fire Warden Ncwbury
mil furnish u clear idea of what the city has
done MIICO the dawn of 1SV > in the way of
building and Improvement , and while Lincoln
lays no claim to having had a Doom , the farts
sliow that she has gone forward in u most satis-
fucton way. If the street improvements are
also considered the amount of money ex
pended during the summer will reach u fabu
lous sum. Taking tno improvements of the
year into consideration in every way , and the
truth Is forced homo that moro permanent
work lias been done this year than last. The
tatr > l amount of the building permits granted
wince the 1st of January is fl.llKOtO. Of
Ills amount $100.000 wa granted between
fcnuarv 1 and April 10. The residence and
ftusincsH blocks ulnco that date aggregate
Sl8ri70 * ! ; tlio county court house , fJOJ.OOO ;

university and church buildings , $1 5,000.
The figures speak for themselves and to the
credit of the city.

Judge Stewart gave his decision In the
Sounders guardian case this morning. Ho
evidently thought that sufficient time for tha
Interested parties to cool oil had boon given.
Mr. Sauudcrs drew the first and last winniiiR
card , lie hold u sequence ilush. Judge
Crooker was appointed the child's ijuardlan.
The public anticipated adlflorcut verdict ,
but It is hardly probable that there will bo
any ( ears shed over the matter. Croolcer is
recognized ns onoof Saunders' bosom friends
and thn child his to contiol , pot and dis
elpliuo in all the bringing up essentials. Ii
was generally thought that tha court woiih' '
Uka the child from under the influence ol

however , another guardian was somewhu !
dlmoult to llud. The child's good may uiu

By aiid by the Lancaster county coin
house will look like a building. But it may
bo a year und it may bo never. No ono can
toll. Smco the first break in the county
commissioners and the contractor the great
stones have been very slowly laid ono upon
another. It is quite hard for the contractors
to get men who will push the work. The
stone cutters como and go. An idle stranger
is caught occasionally but as soon as ho finds
out that the principal part of the stone is being -
ing dressed at the Ohio quarries , or at .Toilet ,
111. , at the expense of the Lincoln laborer , ho
lays down his tools nnd makes room
for some ono else , So it has gene
all summer long. Strikes are a common oo-
currenco on the building. At this time the
new court house ought to give some idea of
what it > vlll bo like when the architect pro
nounces it finished and ready to bo received
by the county. As yet , however. It hardly
looks like a building. If the work hangs tire
another summer as it has this , the caps for
the windows of the upper story will not bo
laid before the fall of IS'JO. This is a cheer
ful outlook for the completion of the building
so badly needed by the county.

A MARCH WITH THE SECOND ,
Its Lnst Stand at Elk City and Bo-
TWENTY MILES IN THE MUD.
Scenes Alone tlio Route , Soldierly
Knilurance , tlie Nebraska Para-
disc and the AVarni Wei-
como nt the Fort.
Kile City to Omaha.
On Wednesday lust a dozen heavily Itulen
teams emerged from a cloud of dust which
they had raised on the highway and dashed
into a square in the heart of Elk City.
Shortly after they were followed by half a
dozen mounted men , cacii of whom was at
tired as un officer of the army. Another
cloud , and from this emerged a host of tired
and dusty soldiers , who had Just covered the
distance from Fremont. The wagons dropped
their burdens. Tlio latter were pulled into
pieces and carried off to different parts of the
field as if by preconcerted arrangement.
Everybody seemed to bo doing something ,
and at a distance the scene was suggestive of
the ceaseless activity nnd energy of a colony
of ants. In an incredibly short space of
time , and almost imperceptibly to even the
careful observer , the aspect of tbo plain was
changed. Hero and there only could patches
of the green sward ba discerned , the full
prospect being destroyed by rows of tents as
whlto as snow , which had seemingly risen
spontaneously from the earth. On the north
wcro the quarters for the officers , in the mid
dle ground those of the privates and further
south these occupied by the cooks. At inter
vals , in the vicinity of the latter ,
tires began to burn beneath huge kettles.
Savory odors suggestive of the kitchen were
berne upon the bree/o. Other fires flashed
here and there In the aveuucs between the
touts nnd light blue smoke rose from the
Sibley stoves which stood in front of each of
the otllcer.V quarters. The Second infantry
has gene into camp , on its way from Kear
ney to Omaha , and is preparing for the nignt
which , with chilling blasts and threatening
rain , is fast approaching. The soldiers are
served or help themselves to the viands
which have been prepared and retire to a
favorite spot to rest and appreciate them.
The oflleers assemble at their mess room and
with cheerful converse the evening meal is
In the gathering darkness , the camp fires
glow. The pipe und cigar uro smoked
in easy and restful attitudes , and
ttma passes quickly under the in-
tluonco of the weed and the rcmnisrcncc ,
which is the Ufa of every bivouac. "Taps"
is sounded and every light in the camp is ex
tinguished. In heavy sleep the way-worn
soldier seeks rent and recuperation for the
morrow's inarch. No sound disturbs his
slumber. Ha Is free to commune with the
imagery o his dreams , to win renown at the
cannon's nioutli or wealth in other pursuits
when ho shall have returned to private llfo.
Over his rest watch trusty sentinels. Those
move with almost noiseless tread , enveloped
In a shade darker even than that of the night
Itself , It is a lonely l eat , but it is patrolled
with regularity , and severe is the punish
ment of the tnan who fails to do his duty.
The clouds lower , a few sharp flashes of
lightning , with & slight detonation ,
and rain begins to fall. It
will rain all night. The guard who
comes to relieve the nearest sentinel is en
cased iu a heavy bine capo overcoat. It Is
but poor protection against the storm , and ho
Bhuddorit as ho emerges from thu Sibloy tent ,
where there is light and warmth , into the
exterior whore there are darkness and
The Sibloy is a circular tent with walls
about throe fwt high , thence assuming a
sugar-loaf ohfiiMj , with an opening nt the
summit and another on one hldu , through
which cntranro and egress nre obtained.
\Vithin , a small conical stove of sheet-iron ,
which terminates in n pipe that extends
through the orifice , rests upon the ground.
Iv has but a small opening and throuch it
the wood is supplied , The tluuios servo to
ight the enclosure. They are aided by a
: allow candle which is resting on the ground.
The illumination reveals a number
of blue blankets on the earth.
Each has a slumbering soldier. Some
are partly undressed ; others are barefooted ,
while others are ready for Immediate call ,
except to don their overcoats. These are
Lho guards of the night. A corporal sits on
the ground nnd quietly feeds the ilro , at the
same time watching that the candle does not
ignite the dead dry grass which surrounds
the stovo. Around both stove nnd candle is
a small "flrobrako , ' two inches high , made
of sand , the object boinp to prevent the
tlamcs , in the event of burning the grass ,
from reaching the blankets of the slum-
berors , Ono of the latter is aroused. It is
his time to go on guard. Ho wakes with
difllcult.v , finally realizes the situation ,
Jumps up , hears the myriads of
rain drops on the canvas , shudders ,
puts on his coat and is es
corted to hia post by the corporal.
The man whom ho relieves is escorted back
dripping trom the storm. Ho disrobes , en
deavors to dry himself and then falls asleep.
The guards are "two hours on und four hours
off. " If the soldier has been at his post for
the second time , then may ho sloop until ro-
vcille ; if not he has but four hours' rest before -
fore being again called to his post. In this
way is the night spent , drowsy , weary men
being suddenly called from slumber to whcro
devotion and vigilance are most unalterably
The candle burns out , the embers decay
nnd a gray light , more a mist with a peculiar
freshness , enters at the opening to the tent.
Daylight is struggling with the vapors of the
night nnd with it comes the piercing blasts of
the bugler sounding the first call of rovolllo.
In an instant there are a hundred men in sight
in all parts of the camp. They have crawled
out from their shelter tents where two men
have hlopt where there is scarcely room for
one , under a gable of canvas which is open
at both ends. They are performing their ab
lutions , building fires , aiding the cooks and
getting ready for breakfast. The second call
is sounded , the men assemble , the roll is
called by company , the captain reports the
absentees to the adjutant nnd adjutant to the
commanding officer. Then follows half an
hour for breakfast , the "general" is sounded
and down go the tents , while oven yet the
darkness has not been driven oft tbo face of
the earth. The ants again tumble around in
thu mist and suddenly in the south the
wagons of yesterday stand indistinctly do-
lined , loaded with the structures which , .so
beautiful in the sunlight , now sodden and
heavy , are left to bo rejuvenated at some
other time. In less than an hour amLa half
after the first call the order to march is
given. The wagons take the lead and through
the muddy ground and road head for Omaha.
Following them , mounted , rldo General
frank Whcaton , Colonel Joshua S.
Fletcher , Lieutenant John Kinzio , ad
jutant , and n bugler. These assume
an easy gait which , however , keeps them
considerably In the loud of a squad among
which Is another' ' bugler , who repeats the
calls of bis brothqr with the general and
staff. The column follows still further in
the rear , the leading company being F , Cap
tain James Ulio , who marches at the head of
his command with the rigidity , military bearing -
ing und interest which , characterize the old
and devoted soldier. Daily the companies
take turns in leading , that being the easiest
place to march because the constant shifting
of places bohlud leaves gaps which these fol
lowing must fill up. The mori do not keep
step. They carry tholr arms at will , smoke ,
talk , joke and trudge through the mud with
no more concern than it the road were sur
faced with velvet , The order of the line is
regulated by the rotation referred to , each
company being attended by its captain and
lieutenants as follows ; A company , Captain
William Mills , First Lieutenant Abner Pick
ering ; B company , Captain Charles A.Dcmp-
soy , First Lieutenant John S. Mallory C
company , Second Lieutenant William M.
Wright ; D company , Captain Abner Hulnes ,
jr. , First Lieutenant William H. Abercrom-
bie , Second Lieutenant Fred T. Van Llo\v ;
E company. Captain Luther S.Amos ; F
company , Captain Jatnca Ulio , First
Lieutenant Horace U. Sarson , Second
end Lieutenant Harry E. Wilkins ;
G company , Captain Charles Keller ; H com-
piny , Captain Aaron S. Daggott ; I company ,
First Lieutenant Sidney E. Clark ; 1C company -
pany , First Lieutenant William J. Turner ,
Second Lieutenant James M. Arrasmith.
Major Duller of the headquarters staff rides
toward tliP. left of thu line , his musUxeh of
silver aud checks aglow with heightening
touches of morning , strongly suggesting Me-
Muhpn , once president of France. Following
the ( joltimu como the ambulances , one bear
ing the rod cross , that priceless talisman
which shields it from danger. These are at
tended by Surgeon Justus M. Hrown and
Acting Assistant Surgeon Frank L. Hender
son. It is watched by a roar guard under
the command of Captain Mills.
In this manner tbo column walk * along at
n twenty miiiuto gait. There is no band , no
drum , fife or flag. Each man with his rifle ,
cartridges around his waist , haversack , cup
and canteen , carries about twenty pounds. It
is not as much as soldiers have carried
when they lay down nnd died In the torced
marches of the rebellion , but it is heavy
enough for the average civilian to decline
carrying during a day's traipp. The men
have seemingly become accustomed to the
weight , the while handling their weapons
After thirty minutes' walk n halt is
sounded and n rest for ten minutes is en
joyed. On again for fifty minutes when a
second rest is commanded. The men rest on
their arms , throw themselves on the ground ,
sit upon the fences , crack Jokes or read scraps
of romances they have well-thumbed on the
line. Again Is the march taken up. Past
farmhouses embowered in the green wood
and backed by rolling meadows ; past fields
of cattle which look wondrously intelligent
and surprised at the spectacle ; past groups
of children which stand at a distance as if
in fear of the men with the rilies , and then
up a long and gradual ascent , when tlio
clouds suddenly break nnd tlio sun shines
upon a farm country us bcatiful as the eve
could desire. The soldiers cannot repress
a feeling of appreciation nnd the onleorsgive
expression to the pleasure the sight affords.
Tupering hills , unvoxed with plant or stub-
bio ; acres of corn impelled into action by the
breeze ; far-reaching meadows and fields as
variagated as Persian rugs and describing a
dozen of geometrical figures ; orchards with
bonding trees ; Holds with stacks of hay ; ru
ral homes displaying taste , comfort and com
petence , everywhere delight the vision and
suggest rather n sccno In the older states
than in the one which has Just been re
claimed from the desert.
There is a succession of these scenes , but
they ao not weary , and nearly every hourly
halt is made where ono with kaleidoscopic
variety may bo enjoyed. What an apprecia
tion tlieso men have for these scenes of
poaccl And what an admirable body of men
tlieso soldiers are ! Stout , hearty , hardy ,
bronzed und brave , yet as docile as children.
They know their duty and live up to it.
There are no commands. The officers and
men exehango words when necessary and
mutual respect and esteem characterize the
exchange. And the officers ! They are
worthy of the men patient , devoted , exam
ples physically and professionally to their
soldiers. They mingle iu the march with a
freedom which is to bo admired. Aud what
pleasant gentlemen and agreeable associates
they are educated , good conversationalists ,
read on history and full of anecdote and de
tails of adventure , they begullo the time
until Irvington is reached. There a half-
hour rest is made. Then the soft roads and
long hills to Omaha are undurtaken. They
are covered and ut Omaha Heights the band
moots the column. General Whcaton orders
all his staff to his side. The band plays.
The general , ns U returning from an expedi
tion of force , not moro than any man in the
ranks , however , feels the inspiration of the
music. The men wheel into fours. The
weary limbs reccivo now elasticity , the
bowed forms uro erect , the rifles
are shouldered , and the stop is
that of veterans on parade , because
at the head of the hill , the mothers , jw/oot
hearts und wlfos of tin ) men all waiting to
receive them with loving embrace. "Tho
Battle Cry of Freedom , " "Hounio Blue
Flag , " "Girl I Left Behind Me , " "Auld
Lang Syno" and "Homo Sweet Homo , " are
Played in succession. The music , thu wait
ing of thn loved ones with waving handker
chiefs , the brilliant Hays fluttering in the
breeze tolls upou many a soldier who is alone
in the world and tear drops of regret are
shed while even the embraces of love uro
being made , Thu column matches to
the parade ground aud U dismissed.
The distance from Elk City , nineteen mileg ,
has been made In tlvo hours , not Including
tops , and that from Kearney has been cov
ered in twelve days. If the experience of
the soldiers und officers on the trip has been
that ot the undersigned with them , there
must Indeed be a good incentive to them to
bo always mindful of the undertaking ,
