Our party has named splendid ticket throughout, one worthy of and entitled to your loyal support. There are vital principles dependent upon this Elec- tion, A vote for the Republican can- didate for Congi-ess is a vote for sound policy, for good government, for honest Snance, for the maintenance of the honor of the Nation at home und abroad. It will serve as a vote of con- I fidcncc in the present as grand an administration as ever conducted the affairs of government in the interest of the American people. Moreover our county, the smallest of this congressional district, has been especially hohorccl in the selection of one of its citizens as the Republican standard bearer of the district. Let us show that.we appreciate that honor by getting out such a vote as will make Old "Worth the banner county of the district. Again let me urge you to vote, and to vote right, and to use your influence to induce your friends and neighbors to do the same. A. C. BI.ACKMOKE, Chairman Co. Ccn. Com. J. H. 40NIS, JUITIIT.

GOING TO THE FRONT, [lly Jo. V. STIXIIUU. tut 111. Infantry.] On the 4th day of July, while awiit- ui; the arrival of three U. S. punboats that were to "escort" us to Cuba, we re- ceived by courier hurried orders to proceed to the front at a forced march. Orders were issued hurriedly and aa promptly obeyed, and soon the entire nt stood in line, every man with that were 10 escori usio we ceived the glad tiding that Cervera's a load of from 65 to 75 pounds. It was fleet hid been destroyed, and both in then that the_ captains of of the day and the victory ev- erything in the bay was elaborately decorated with flags and bunting, and salutes were fired from the fort and gunboats. Yes, it WM a Glorious Fourth. The next morning sin large bouts besides our own, convoyed by three gunboats, slowly left the Ameri- can harbor to take us to the land we were all so eager to reach and of which we had in the iasl read much. The journey across was one I shan't so easily forget, for here we tasted the first privations of our long campaign. Just imagine us boys, all from good homes, huddled together like so many head of cattle, with the horses under- neath three decks, receiving unseason- ed roast beef, three times a day Bui we hadn't left our homes for fun, aud said nothing, for we realized that harder trials were in store for ua. O" panics aaked for volunteers to remain behind to take care of our but not a man out of 1400 responded, and the colonel, although seemingly pleased, gave orders to pick out the last enlisted men and leave them be- hind. Thus about 200 were left behind and 1200 strong we responded to the final command, "Right forward, fours right, and we were on the way to the front aud to our fate. It soon got dark and the jolly talking and singing in the ranks ceased, and silent- ly we followed our file man and tried to look at it all brightly, but the fur- ther we went the worse it got. There to be even a mule path and we had most of the time to crawl on our knees, climb up large rocks, jump down in pits, wade across rivers and walk over swamps which reached up r knees. Ordinarily to march harder trials were in store ior us. v the third day I stood alone on the aft 30 miles for our regiment would have oart of the boat and saw on our left been as nothing, but here every step the majestic hills which appeared as an exertion and our Khoulders and backs were soon aching, for the strings around our shoulders commenced to cut into the flesh. Then the rain came though velvet clad, and I wondered to myself, "What shall you encounter be- hind those 11 the eye so pretty looking imagination Yes, I let my rather vivid free sway and saw myself storming up such for the honor 'of my beloved Stars and Stripes, when suddenly the boat pars- down as it only can in a tropical coun- try, d.inaling our eyes; but for that matter we might as well have been, blind, for we could not see the hand in front of us, but felt for our preceding ed a cape and we saw before us the bay comrade 2.nd followed close up to him. of Siboncy.

Go to the front and fight tor that dear old (lag which we all love." Another discour- aging sight met our eyes. Around us there walked hundreds of half-clad natives of Hie lowest negro lypu and toon realized that these people for whom we had come to fight repaid us by stealing our clothing, food, etc., and it was with poor thoughts of the Cubans that we that night threw our- selves on the sand to get a little rest preparatory to the hazards of tomor- row.

A near friend would say, "Oh. stick it out, Bill, we'll soon be there Out still it seemed we should never reach the spot on which we should be allowed to rest for an hour or so, until daybreak sent its first rays out. Oh. how long those At last we heard loud voices in front, anfl we gradually foiwicd once more op an open space in company front, and got com- mand to drop wheie we stood in the muil with everything on and our guns hugged close to our bodies. I have seen orders executed promptly when we gave an exhibition drill in Chicago, but never was one obeyed like this or- der. Everyone dropped as if liy magic and was fast asleep in the water a few minutes after. It was really an hour but seemed only ten minutes before the bugle sounded, and we received orders to hurry to the front, seven miles away, as an attack was eipecteJ; But I tell you w; feet were swollen so it was a tired lot of boys that again started on a forced march. As we drew nearer the front we could plainly see where the worbt battles had been. As the rains had washed away the lose ground, we could see the knees, arms, or faces, here and there, of our brave boys who had just seen hurriedly buried foot or so un- der ground. It did not tend to encour- age us, but we could not stop to pay them.the honor they deserved, but sped onward and at last reached a lit- tle valley where as we passed through we were shelled and shot at by the Spanish artillery from the town; but berc a.s on most other occasions their poor gunnery and judgment of dis- tance saved us for we heard the shells screach over our heads and explode way beyond us. When at last we drew up in front of San Juan hills where we were going to defend the entrench- ments our dear old colonel gave com- mand as though we were dress sarade, "Fours left; captains, rectify Ihe and after every man that left the coast was in his proper place he turned to the general and re- ported the First Illinois for duty.

J. G. Halland, Republican candidate for state superintendent; that they were reinforcing their scandalous charges with insinuations that Prof. Halland's Iowa record was bad, etc. Papers of the afternoon mail brought specimens of some of those or insinuations, also brought what to any candid mind mus1 William Cullen Bryant, an American poet who lived close to Nature's heart and whose best verses are not read nearly so much as they deserve to be, was born November 3, 1794, 104 years ago today. He died in 1878. A famous critic characterizes Bryant's poetry an "pervaded by a pure and genial phil- osophy, and a solemn and religious tone "that influences the fancy, the understanding and the heart." Col. Martin, president of the Iowa Central railway company and state chairman of the National Democratic committee, urges all Democrats who believe in financial honesty and the time-honored principles of the party to vote for the Republican congressional nominees this year, and for these good reasons: "The Republican party in loiva has taken advanced position on the money question, and, an increased najority" for the congressional can- didate of that party will encourage sound money men in other states, will be a killing blow to the free silver 'allicy and will prepare the way for such comprehensive and enlightened monetary legislation as the country needs and all sound money men earnestly desire and demand."

Thus far he has won his way on pure merit, and what- ever the outcome of the present elec- tion may be his Iowa friends will still have faith in Prof. Halland.
