After the dinner had been served nnd
the soldiers who had enjoyed It were htroll-
Ing to shady nooks about the camp , vlth
their sisters and other fellows' sisters , the
attention of the women was directed to re-
llevlnc the wants of the men In the
regimental hospital , to whom the
women carried milk and jellies and
such food as the physicians would
permit to be Riven to the men under tholr
care. Flowers were placed In their rooms
and everything possible was done to cheer
them up. It was Informally de
cided at n meeting of the young women
later In the afternoon that much of the
work of the FFower mission of Oinuha dur

passenger coaches , occupied by the
privates and non-commissioned olllcers , and
of one sleeping car for the use of the
commissioned ofllcers. Notwithstanding the
uncertainty of the hour at which the troops
would arrive , there was a goodly number or
citizens on hand to raise a cheer for the
returning soldiers. lieforo ranks were
formed to take up the march north on Thlr-
tloih street to the camp at Fort Omaha ,
there were a good many fond embraces and
other affectionate greetings exchanged.
On this train were the members of the
Omaha Guards , the prideof the Gate City
and its oldest military organization. An
Captain Charlie Wilson nnd his men stepped
from the cars they were pretty nearly over
whelmed with hearty welcomes from these
nearest and dearest to them. Then came the
Nebraska City boys , under the captaincy ot
Hilly Hayward of foot ball fame and the
son of the next governor. Other companies
followed these , and the troops were soon on
their way to the camp BO recently loft by
the Third Nebraska regiment.
C'onu- llniiKIlt'iirilfil. .
The boys did not present the same neat
and trim appearance noted on the occasion
of their leaving home. They were dark from
sunburn , their clothes were dusty and dirty ,
their faces were covered with bearUs of
strange and fantastic designs , But as a
whole the men looked well. There were
ninny weak , almost too weak to march. Some
showed the effects of sickness. But as they
again trod on their native soil they seemed
to brace up and take on a new lease ot life.
On ono of the trains there was a poor fellow
who had to bo helped to the train when the
troops left Chlckamauga , but ho got off the
train and walked like a well man when ho
reached here. The malady of homesickness
disappeared when the buildings of the home
city appeared In sight.
The second train to arrive was made up
of seventeen freight cars and ono passenger
coach. Part of the train was unloaded at the
Twenty-eighth street crossing and some of
the cars were taken to the Nicholas street
depot. This train reached the city at 7:30 :
o'clock , and two hours later there appeared
on Thirtieth street , bound for Fort Omaha ,
o long train of army wagons , heavily loaded
wlih tents , baggage and other Impedimenta
of the regiment. Thcro were more than a
dozen of these wagons , each drawn by four
strong mules. The soldiers accompanying
the wagon trains were heartily applauded
by the crowd along Thirtieth street , which
by this time lined the street from the railroad - I
road crossing to the fort , a half milo away , j
The third train to pull la was another I
weakness cl the stomach. It Is the
source of untold misery. It may bo
cured by toning and strengthening the
stomach and enriching and purifying the
blood with Hood's Sartaparllla. Many
thousands have been cured by this medi
cine nnd write that now they "can eat
anything tney wish without distress. "

passenger train , composed of fourteen
coaches and ono sleeper. This was filled
with other companies of the Second regi
ment , and arrived at Thirtieth street at
-just 8 o'clock. Thcro was a bigger crowd
by this time at the railroad tracks , and up
nt the fort there were over COO early risers
surrounding the Omaha Guards and other
volunteers wanting to know all about It.
Hut the men were too busy for a little whllo
to enter on any rehearsal of what had trans-
i plred slnco they left home. Gradually they
got excused by their captains , however , nnd
lost no time In strolling away with some
relative or friend. The affectionate greetings
were repeated and then there were stories
from the one about camp life and from the
other about things at homo and fun at the
Next after Colonel Hills and Captain Wil
son of the Omaha company probably Wil
liam , the colored mascot of the regiment ,
attracted most attention. Ho Is a partic
ularly clever youth of about 12 years
I i adopted by the regiment at Chlckamaugn ,
I I and brought north to become n. permanent
| ' resident of this city. He Is attired In n uni
form of light brown canvas , made after the
style of the officers' uniforms , and Is re
garded as an Important member of the regi
mental staff. The other pets of the regi
ment , Including another colored lad , a goose
and a doe , all brought from the hills of
Georgia , were exhibited by the soldiers to
their friends with some pride.
The last train of the return movement of
the Second pulled in about 11 o'clock. It
carried the sick members of the regiment.
It had stopped n couple of hours ut Fort
Crook , on orders from army ofllcers here ,
so that the worst cases ot sickness could 1
be taken to the army hospital there , and
given proper attention. There were about
thirty-five patients left there. Tor the
rest Captain Baxter , acting quartermaster
of the Department of the Missouri , had pro
vided nrmy ambulances nnd other con
venient vehicles for carrying the sick to
the city hospital , or to their homes. Cap
tain Baxter himself was on hand bright
nnd early , and was accompanied by a largo
number of his officers and clerks from the
department headquarters , who assisted In
looking nftcr the comfort of the returning
volunteers. Adjutant General Harry was on '
hand to assist , and Assistant General '
Freight and Passenger Agent Phllllppl of
the .Missouri Pacific looked after the un
loading of the trains. Ho was assisted by
Traveling Passenger Agent Harnes , who ac
companied the troops north from St. Louis.
\VOIIK-II ill Tlii-lr Work.
In the cool hours of the morning there I
were 'scores of the blK-hearted women of
Omaha hurrying toward Fort Omaha.
All of them cwrrled crcat boxes and
baskets of lunch for the soldiers
Hcforo the sun was fairly up In the skies
all streets leading toward the fort were <
scenes of activity. Carriages of all kinds <
were hurrying to the common Mecca , but j :
nil looked allko with their numerous sup
plies of good things for the soldiers to eat.
The street cars , too , did a good business , and j
the llttlo bob-tall cars from the Ames ave i
nue barns out to Thirtieth street were !
crowded almost to suffocation from T o'clock '
until well along in the afternoon. Hut the
women ot Omaha were not tbo only ones
who took good care that the boys should
Imvo plenty of the best to eat. The eoldleri

Ono young fellow said , with his teeth deeply

said he. Another when asked If hu had had

"Breakfast , well , I should say not. I

It was a source of relief to all to learn
that none of the boys of any ot the com
panies had succumbed to disease whllo on
the way from the south. There were
rumors during Hie morning that at least
two deaths had occurred during the night ,
nnd when the arrival of the hospital train
showed this to have been a mbitnko the
tension was removed. Thcro were threeof
the soldiers who are seriously 111 nnd the
physicians feel alarmed about only one of
There was a touching pathos In the
eagerness with which the parents of those
knoxvn to be sick Bought out Major Hoover ,
the surgeon of the regiment , to Inquire the
latest from the patient. The major came
In on the first section and had no Informa
tion from the hospital train slnco ho left
Kansas City the night before ; yet he
seemed to appreciate the situation , nnd al
though he was himself sulTerlm ; with ma
larial fever , ho kept on his feet , answered
all questions In a good-natured inanner ami
tried to assure the anxious friends there
was no cause for woriylng.
An Omaha man wanted the major to give
him the privilege of
removing lilasori to his
own home. The boy was
coming on the hos
pital train and the parent wanted to make
arrangements for him. Ho was told that
none but the seriously 111 would he taken
away at present , and at any rate the major
could not permit any of them to leave
without an order from the colonel of the
regiment. The parent was not willing to
look at It In that light , and wanted to
take his boy from the car as soon as the
train arrived. He was told then to get
an order from Colonel Bills nnd his dcalro
would be compiled with. In the course of
an hour he returned with the order , nnd
here was n feeling of triumph ns he placed
t In the hands of Major Hoo.xr nnd went
away to wait the arrival o' the train.
A number of tbo men were taken sick
enroute , and these were cared for promptly
upon their arrival. Ono of these was First
Lieutenant McClnry of Norfolk , who hade
; o bo assisted to an ambulance. Another
was Lieutenant Devlno of Ord , who was
suffering from malarial fever. Private 0.
Wheeler of Company K , Schuyler , de
ployed on a pair of crutches , the result of
nn Injury to his knee and subsequent
rheumatism. Koss Porter and George Pync
of Company II had to be conveyed to the
hospital at Fort Omaha on account of
malaria which was just comlnc on. In
addition to these Dr. W. D. Ward of Lin
coln , who was attached to the hospital
corps , and Private Goodwell of Lincoln ,
also with the corps , after waiting around
| for the hospital train , both became 111 and
had to bo transferred to the Fort Omaha
hospital. These men had been caring for
the sick on the trains coming north and
. had been overworked , nnd with the rc-
I taxation which came with their return home ,
they yielded to the fever which 'was In
Mother Given Them Welcome.
The mother of ono of the Omaha Guards
was on the ground as early as the street
cars could get her there , and she deplored
nearly all the way because she had not
walked Instead of waiting. This company '
was In line , about ready to march , when
she arrived , and after n hearty welcome to ]
her boy , her excitement wag so Intense she
walked along the front of all the companies
waving her handkerchief and telling them
she welcomed them home. She was taking
the place of these mothers who were unable I
to bo present In person and making the boys |
feel they had not been forgotten.
Major Hoover of Kearney , the surgeon of
tbo regiment , In discussing the health of the
regiment and of the camp , said : "It has
only been within the last few weeks that
the sick rate has been alarming. Up till 1
within possibly three weeks only 1V4 per
cent of the boys were on the sick list , but .
within these three weeks they went down
rapidly. These In the hospitals Increased I
from about thirty to 130 In a few days. And
there will ho more of thnm sick even after
our arrival here , for many of the men have
been keeping themselves up through sheer
force of will power , because they feared If
they got down they would bo left at the
hospitals nt Chlckamauga. We' only left
twenty of our men In these hospitals , whom
we considered too lit to rldk BO long a Jour
ney. There have been but six deaths In
the regiment from the time we reached
Chlckamauga , May 22 , till the present time ,
and ono of these was from drowning.
"Tho cause of the Increase In sickness was
due to the camp conditions. We had be
tween 60,000 nnd 60,000 men nnd from 8,000
to 10,000. horses and mules there , nnd the
c.imp could not help becoming unsanitary.
It was Impossible for n patient to rally
under the conditions which prevail there.
We would retire nt night and hang our
clothes up , and In the morning wo could
take our undershirts and wring the water
out of them. I have malarial all through
my system , and there has been but one day
In three weeks that I have not had a cl'illl.
I keep myself full of qulnlno and take care
of myself , which enables mo to stay on niy
Tbo members of the regiment will bo
granted furloughs as rapidly as possible ,
which will bo good for thirty days. It is
expected that all the men will be away from
the camp by September 12. At the end of
the thirty days they must return or risk
being entered up as deserters , when the
work of mustering out will begin. This will
require from ten days to two weeks , brlng-
Ing It near tlio last of October before the
soldiers again become private citizens.

The hospital at Chlckamauga was emptied
on last Wednesday afternoon , nil the
patients being conveyed to Lytle. Here thej
waited all day without shelter and were
loaded Into sleeping coaches Into at night.
There was a total of 128 , In charge of Major
Hoover and Lieutenant Morran. The sick
soldiers report that they were very comfortable
fortablo during the trip and that their
wants were attended to ns well as could be
expected. Lieutenant Morrau states that he
distributed the following extra supplies dur-
Ing the Journey : Seventy gallons of milk ,
fifty-one palls of beef tea , COO pounds of
ice , brides a largo quantity of fruit and
sandwiches , A dozen competent nurses were
constantly employed In caring for the
