go to the reunion to be held on the battle
field, July 1-4. When they were there
in 1888, fifty year ago, most of them were
tioya In their teens, or perhaps, young
men who had passed their majouty.
.After fifty year, hair streaked with

bravery and good citizenship they pvs

As to how the battle of Gettysburg
went and regarding the Incidents on the
field and during the fighting, the teles
(old by the veterans are of Interest to
those who were not there and to the Gen
erations that have since corao upon tho
Stage of action.
Probably there .was no man
on the field at Gettysburg that

extreme right on Culp'a Hill Hera we
participated In the flghtlntr and during
the afternoon were sent to Cemetery
Rldgo to strengthen the line. Getting over
there we found the union breastworks oc
cupied by the enemy and after som
sharp fighting we drove htm out and took
possession. This was directly opposlto
H well's command, and after we got our
position the fighting ceased until about 1
o'clock In the afternoon, when the battle
was resumed, with the main forces a lit
tle less thnn a mile apart
"I remember distinctly the charge of

they ran, all the time yelling and cheer

were close to the lines, though the ar

Into, their ranks, producing terrific havoc
"The defeat of Pickett practically ended

Tho day when Pickett made his fam
ous chargo I was In the front and ret
member distinctly seeing the general lead
Sis men out and hurry toward the union
lines. Volley after volley waa poured
Into them, but they came on and on un
til they were almost to our lines. Then
wo waited an Instant for the command;
it came and was that wo should not

eyes "bf the men marchjng toward us.
Those were minutes that tried the bravery
and nerve ot the bravest
"On In a solid column and with almost
the speed ot a tornado, tiring as fast as
they could toad, and giving vent to yells
that would have done credit to a band of
Bioux Indians, these brave men came.
When they were perhaps 8W yards away,
we got the word. Each 'one ot our sol
diers picked his man, took aim and fired.
The result was appalling. The ground
eeemed t be covered with dead men, but"

Volley at'er volley was Ilred into mem,
and when they reached our breastworks
and engaged in a hand-to-hand struggle
that followed, there were hardly any left
to tell the talc, Tho charge was a brave
act, but it was suicidal. Hovrever, if
Pickett had broken our center, our flanfia
would have been nt the mercy of the

the Gettysburg fight, hut after that he
wns a spectator. Ills company was one
ot the first on the field and was one of
the first to open fire after Lee Invaded
the town. He was a gunner In Company
H ot the Wisconsin battery. As soon as
the' cannon were on tfie field and unllm
bered he got the range, and commenced
shelling Lee's advancing army. Hbw
ever, during the fight the company suf
fered severely, having nine men killed
and twenty-seven wounded out of forty
four. Dalley was one of those wounded
and was taken to the court house in
Gettysburg that was converted Into a
hospital, and from there, though suffer
ing Iritensely from his wounds, from the
top of the building watched the progress
ot the battle less than a mile away.

"The buttle was a grnnd sight and It
made such an Impression upon my mind
that I remember It as If It was but yes
terday. I can remember witnessing the
movements of the forces on Culp's and
Cemetery Hill, and It seems as if now I
can hear the cheers of the men of each
side as they gained temporary advan
tages ot the fight.
"The charge ot Pickett was the most
brilliant event that occurred. From
whero I stood on my crutches I could
distinctly see him out in tho woods; I
could see the men sweep down the hill
and right up to the mouth of the union
artillery and niusketry that was mowing
down the ranks like a reaper going
through ripe, grain. There were a few
moments when the field was so densely
covered with smoke that I could not see

heard the cheers of the union soldiers
and then the confederates commenced to
run back and X knew It was all over."

In winter your boiler requires but three
things water, coal and remove ashes.
In the summer time conditions aro quite
different and to make your heater and
pipes last an Indefinite period consid
erable attention Is required, for it Is
during the Idle months that deterioration
takes place. Dampness mixed with soot
which contains much creosote, causlnr
spots to rust and especially between
Joints when dampness gets In, causing
the rust, which makes a boiler literally
grow, and many experts recommend the
loosening up of overy bolt Just a little
each year to allow for this constant
growing of cast Iron, caused by forma
tion of rust between Joints and natural
expansion of iron, which always expands
Just a trifle more than tt contracts.
As soon as your fire is out for the sum
