THE WIDOW IN CAMP. The Best Shoe Made for the
TownTopics War Correspondent.
You feci inspired all over again war
inspired here at Jacksonville. It is all
buBtb and activity and soldiers, and,
what is particularly noticeable at tirst
glance clean. It is the only town of
the Eouth in my summer peregrina
tions where I havo not had from
bird's-ejo view and alfactory introduc
tionthe inclination to run away from
pestilence. This town evidently has a
mayor. Your respect goes out to him
involuntarily as you note tho way in
which he keeps house. And jou, sensi
bly, expect to tinti comparatively littlo
sickness here among the soldiers. You
really answer your own question al
most as jou ask about it. You are
told, "Oh, five hundred or so" not bad
at ail with about 1G.000 of the army
mobilized here. A little while after
ward I was knocked off my feet, as it
were, by heating one of tho surgeon
"We have eo much commutation
money in the hospitals we don't know
what to do with it I think wo shall
have to buy champagne for tho soldiers
to use it up."
"How much havo jou?" I asked.
At least 2.",000.
"That" means CO cents a man jou
must have considerably more than 500
And eo they have. On investigation I
find that the official list of sick at this
morning of visiting is nearer 2,300
than 500, and there are, in addition,
3,000 men away on sick furlough.
The hospital equipment, however, is
complete. Lieut.-Col. Louis M. Maus,
the chief surgeon of General Lee's stall,
has worked and is working day and
night. Nowhere have I seen such con
veniences for taking care of the army
sick as here. Eighty Eeven trained
women nurses are here in the second
division h.spital, with orderlies galorein
attendauce; temperature, pulse, and
respiration are taken, and sponge baths
and tub baths are given, under tho same
regime as in the best modern private
hospitals, Of course the prevailing
sickness is typhoid. You hear tho same
objection to 'milk and limewater" from
the patient and hear the same Buffering
in tho cold bath from the stricken one
whose temperature is persistently above
103 degrees. It would seem brutal this
awfully cold bath and a part of "war,"
is lately I had not seen the same treat
ment given to patients who were paying

Flies! Fliee! It seems incredible,
tho number of them. With every pre
caution takeu, with nothing left around
to attract thorn, where typhoid is in
this climate, thero they are, in batches
of millions. I asked several surgeons
how they accounted for so much sickness
at Jacksonville, where apparently noth
ing in sanitation was neglected. Drill
ing in tho hot sun, tho devitalizing in
the southern climate and gradually be
ing weakened into the condition that
cannot throw oil the poisonous germ is
the invariable answer.
Miami was condemned as a mobilizing
camp before any regiments were
sent there. Colonel Maus went tboro
and looked over the sito carefully. Ho
brought away a bottle of the drinking
Dr. Maus condemned the water as un
lit to drink, but Mr. Flagler "won out"
in some way and our soldiers went into
camp at Miami.
They commenced to die like 6heep.
They wero ordered back to Jacksonville
and typhoid has developed continuously
among them ever since.
One of the most perfect camps here is
that of the One Hundred and Sixty-first
Indiana. It is perfectly laid out per
fectly "policed," and ail refuse burned,
and jet the percentage of illness in that
regiment is not much less than in
A regiment that goes as it pleases is
the Third Nebraska- Col. William Jen
nings Bryan's regiment. It knows no
discipline. Yesterdaj, down town and
having a good time, were the officer of
the guard and the officer of the day. The
regiment was evidently taking care of
itself. When roll is called in the differ
ent companies men are reported present
that are away and haven't been heard
of for hours. They are taken sick and
have died without receiving medical
treatment in places around town, and
"unknown" can easily mark their graves.
They boast of their ability to run the
guard, and look npon discipline as cor
rection or punishment instead of an offi
cer's desire to protect his men from the
dangers they themeelves, run into.
The officer who is the strictest disci
plinarian is the best friend of the sol
dier. This line between the volunteer
and the regular is very distinct. It
would take about eighteen months to
make first class soldiers soldiers who
respect discipline from the standpoint
of its being for their own good of a
good 1 7 share of our volunteer army.
