In a campaign, especially auch a campaign

States, which for the first time in fifty
years waa called upon to do battle under the
ttroplc and to make war against a nation
Srhose relative power wa unknown. The
commander of the regiment at the time It
left Fort Crook was Colonel Charlea A.
i Wlkoff, a man who had fought hla way to a
commission from the ranks during the civil
war, and who, while In every way qualified
ja be the leader of auch a force by know
ledge and temperament, had, through the
'system of promotion In vogue, grown gray
holding lower rank . In the army.
Began with a Mnalcet.
Colonel Wlckoff wa a native of Pennsyl
vania. In 1861 he enlisted aa a private In
company H of the First Pensylvanla volun
teer. This wa a thirty-day regiment at
that time and In May of the same year,

'When the Colonel Was Killed.
When Colonel Wlkoff and hla command
lett for Cuba in 1898 the call was hurried
and, the families of the officers were left at
the quarters in Fort Crook. There waa
the greatest Interest at the new post for the
latest reports from the front and for the
benefit of the women and others stationed
at (he post the commanding officer had
. made arrangement with The Bee to tele
phone all Important newa to the poet. This
was usually don about 7 o'clock in the
evening. The telephone line at the Fort
were all centered upon the Omaha line and
the families In ihe different houses were in
formed of the events of the day. . The ye-,
port Of the wounding of Colonel Wlkoff
cams tot The Bee In the afternoon and at
that "ClflMr" the" officer i of thai day' waa in
formed of the fact' and until the extent of
th injuries were known It waa decided to
keep tha knowledge of the accident from
the women at the poet. The officer said
. that he would arrange It so that tha party

Omaha line at tha usual time and. the men
In the office could tell him the result of

fiEDUT CATARRH CURES.
The) Reason Why Inhalers and
Local Applications Are Useless.
For many years catarrh waa considered
to be a local disease and waa treated en
tirely by local remedies, salves, ointments,
powders, sprays and lnhalera, and nearly
(ill of these gave a temporary relief, but a
fcenulas permanent our waa very rare.
tt is true th most annoying symptoms,
Jtk stoppage of th nosa and throat trou
ble, ar purely local, but they are simply
Symptoms and the real seat of disease Is
Catarrh Is a constitutional disease, a
blood disorder, complicated usually with
disease of the liver and to suppose that
local application of sprays, powder, in
haler could ever reach th real cause of
the trouble is ridiculous.
Th sensible and auccessful treatment Is
to remove the catarrhal poison from the
stem by regulating the liver' and puri
fying the blood, and this can only be don
ty an Internal remedy, which ahould eon.
a 1st of antiseptics and remedies to act vlg
vrously on the blood and liver.
The best preparation of this kind which
fill all 'the requirements of a aafe consti
tutional treatment is Btuart'a Catarrh Tab
lets, composed of Blood Root, Red Qua
and almllar wholesome antiseptics, which
are absolutely sat to take Into tha atom
acta and which act upon the liver, atomach
and mucous membrane.
Btuart'a Catarrh Tableta are large, pleas
ant fasting loieogea to be slowly dissolved
In th mouth, tau rsiefc'.&g the mucous
tnembrana and wind-pip and finally reach
lag the stomach.
Dr. Edmondson la speaking of tha new
treatment for catarrh says: "I have ac
complished th moat satisfactory results
In all forma of catarrh of the head, throat,
bronchial tubes, as wall aa catarrh of tha
atomach and liver 'by using nothing els
but Btuart'a Catarrh Tablets. I long since
threw aside spray aad Inhalers aa being
Inconvenient and at the best mere tempo
"Btuart'a Catarrh Tableta act Immediately
Upon tha liver and blood and clear the
rehole system of catarrhal poison. They
ar pleasant and very convenient t use.
and they ar not only th latest, but I be
lieve them to be the best and certainly the
Safest treatment for any form of catarrh.

' Caloae-I Egbert Death.
It waa another native of Pennsyl
vanla and another man from civil life who
came Into command of the regiment upon
the death of Colonel Wlkoff, Colonel Harry
C. Egbert, who waa killed at Mallnta, in
th Philippine on March 26, 1899, while
In command ofthe Twelfth Infantry. Col
onel Egbert military record began in
1861, when be waa appointed first lieutenant

Coljnel Miller la Commaad.
The present commander of the regiment
is Colonel James Miller, a man well known
by the residents of Omaha who wer fa
miliar with the officer of the Second regi
ment when it wa stationed at Fort Omaha.
At that time Colonel Miller waa captain In
that regiment and waa one of the men who
was responsible for the friendly feeling
in the hearts of Omaha people for the Sec

rather of a home institution, from the fact
that It wa stationed in the city for so long

Record . the War. .
The record of the Twenty-second In Cuba
waa brief but brilliant. It waa at th sur
render of Santiago and the campaign lead
ing up to that event. - After the close of
that campaign it wa reorganised and sent
to the Philippine,' where it arrived March
4,' 1899. Ita history in the islanda given
In a recent number of the Manila American
ia aa follow:
After the oollcv of the United State had
in a measure been outlined and it waa de
termined to hold these islands the first
movement to that end contemplated by
(ieneral Otis was to clear the P&sig river,
and the movement was entrusted to Gen
eral Wheatorv. At that time the city of
Manila waa practically In a state of alege,
being entirely surrounded by the Insur
gents. The Twenty-second Infantry
marched out of Malate barracks against
the insurgent on March 12 and took part
In the general advance under General
Wheat on asralnst the insura-ent line, which
extended from 8an Pedro Macatl to Pasay.
The engagement commenced on trie morn
ing of March 13, and lasted with interrup
tions until dark, having by that time ad
vanced ud to Pa tiros. By the 19th the
country had been cleared to the lake coun
try and down for some distance, when th
regiment returned to Manila.
When It wa determined to advance up
the railroad and take Malolo the Twenty
second Infantry waa ordered out under
General Wheaton, and waa engaged In the
fight at Caioocan ana J unanan onage and
river on March 36, and in the fight at
Mallnta on March 36, In which five com
panies of the regiment -were engaged (A, I,
K and L) and by a gallant charge drove
the enemy out of their , trenches and
church. . For a small affair this waa one of
the hottest engagements in tne r nillp
plnea, and the battalion of the Twenty-second
infantry lost three out of the five first
sergeants tnai wer in me ngm. u ney
proceeded up the railroad, fighting their
way mile by mile to Polo, Meycauyan and
mile by mil to Btgaa, and finally took
Malolo. in capital oi ins insurgents, on
In April they took, part In the advance
on San Iaidro under General Tuawton and
were the first to enter that town, which
had been established as the new insurgent
capital, Enrout they took part in the
fight at Norsag&ray and Novallchea and In
the fight at Buatos, being the first to enter
Bustos and Ballua-. Returning down the
Rio Grande river they had a fight at Ban
Fernando, a barrio of Cablao, and In May
entered Candaba and took station there.
Capture ( Agalaald.
Th Twenty-second la further distin
guished from th fact that It was a squad
from a company of thla regiment which
made possible th capture of Agulnaldo
by General Fuostoa. Company H captured
tha correspondence which gav th exact
location of tha Insurgent chief and showed
the Kansas how It would bo possible to
mak th attempt to capture htm, which
wa ao aucceaafully carried out.
The arrival of th Twenty-aecond In th
department brings to thla division of th
army more soldiers than have beea present
In th department sine th opening of th
Spanish war. There are now between 4,000
and 6,000 troops In the department and as
they ar moat of them but recently returned

"TOMMY ATKINS" IS TO GET BETTER PAY
Major .Lee Esnrceae ' Belief the
Measure Will Raise the Stand
ard of Enlisted Mea
la th Arasr.
LONDON, March I. The new army regn
latlona proposed by the war secretary, Mr.
Brodrlck, providing for Increased pay and
other reforms, which have created so much
comment, appear to . have been directly
copied from the United Bute. Major Ar
thur Lee. M. P., formerly British military
attach at Washington, said to a repre
sentative of the Associated Press:
"At Isst we have taken out a leaf from
your excellent book, though I do not be
liv w have gone quit so far in that di
rection as we might, or hope we may. Un
der Mr. Brodrlck' proposed changes, a
privet in th British infantry now re
ceive almost aa much aa a private tn tha
United States army. With thla change,
which I frequently advocated while mili
tary attache at Washington, we hope to get
a class of recruits similar to those secured
In America. Under tha old pay w were
gradually lowering th physical standard,
yet still finding it hard to get men, while
our desertion percentage was Increasing at
a rat which showed ther waa something
radically wrong with th aystem. The
American army waa tha only other volun
tarily enlisted body In the world with which
we could mak serviceable comparisons", tha
continental armies, owing to conscription
and other causes, being perfectly worth
less aa examples. A year ago Mr. Brod
rlck pooh-poobed the idea of copying th
United State. Now he ba chaotTed hla
mind and haa don what th majuflty of
th member of th bouse, regardless of
party, believe to ba th very best thing
that could hav happened to the. army
since Mr, Card well (In 1872) effected hi
weeping reform. For th first time
'Tommy,' with everything found and with
higher pay, will b in a better position
than bla agricultural brother, and' from
that class we ought now to get the beat
Instead of the worst.
"Tea, It may hurt tha agricultural Inter
est, or what is left of It, In England, but I
do not believe that this damage will ba
as aerloua aa the avila which th change
will correct. Not only ia it interesting
to not tha Influence of the American ays
tem In these sweeping changes, but they
will have a tremendous negative Im
portance. Last vear the government
clearly Indicated it fears that it might
have to resort to conscription. Th present
move banishes all possibility of this, for I
understand Mr. Brodrlck la willing to go
even further in copying the United States'
excellent treatment of enlisted men and
by liberal finance build up the standard of
the army. The increase in pay means an
additional annual coat of about 3,000,000,
but I maintain that It will be a direct aav
lng of money, for the better claaa of men
secured will mean fewer men In the hospi
tals and prisons, aa well aa obviating other
forma of wastage, and will quickly make up
for the Individual initial outlay. Some
day, perhaps, w may be able to adopt th
sensible plan of th United Statea of pay
ing the enlisted men of all arms at tha
same rate, But traditions hero die bard."

Dr. Kilmer & Co., Blnghampton, N. T.t . '
Gentlemen In Justice to you, I feel It Is my duty to send yott an acknowledgement of th receipt of the sampl
bottle of Swamp-Koot you so kindly sent me. I had been out of health for the last five years with kidney and blad
der trouble. Had our best physicians prescribe for me.. They would relieve me for the time being,' but the old com
plaint would ln a short time return again. I sent for a sample bottle of Swamp-Root, and I found it did me a world
of good. Since then I have taken eight small bottles bought at iuy drug store, and I consider myself perfectly cured.
It seemed as though my back would break in two after stooping. I do not have the smarting and irritation, nor do I
have to get up during the night to urinate, as I formerly did three or four times a night but now Bleep the sleep of
peace. My back Is all right again, and ln every way I am a new man. Two of my brother officers are still using
