day of July while ui the arrival of three U S that were to escort us to Cuba we re- 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 usio we the glad tiding that a load of from 65 to 75 pounds It was fleet hid been destroyed and both in then that captains of of the day and the victory 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 can harbor to take us to the land we were all so eager to reach and of which we had in the 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 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 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 ly we followed our file man and tried to look at it all brightly but the 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 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 down as it only can in a tropical try 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 followed close up to him of Everybody came on Then we would pass the word along to view the place our victorious I Look out boys to right or left forces had landed and with nothing a hole a stone or any other ob- but rifles had stormed up the hills and that might have injured them taken blockhouses and strong positions j Then came word from some from the dons Well the same after- boy a piece of a jolly tone from an- j noon we landed in small boats during noon ane quite a storm which made it very cult to get ashore and were wet when we at last felt land other and thus we gradually drew nearer our destination But as time went on our feet as if loaded the ammunition and wet we at icu 0 under our feet But oh what a sight gage commenced to weigh now met our In a row on the uid many a boy said 1 newspapers indicate that Spain may pft peace negotiations and seek Kmic mure American political cloning with of Republics u success all the li lie Franco-British war cloud begins to lower again and there is tremendous activity in foreign si si Iowa nails lot Manila today beach were erected a lot of tents which were used for hospitals and ingly there poured from the woods soldiers carrying on stretchers their wounded comrades and they looked worn and weary for they had carried them from IS miles We drew near and saw their pain-drawn faces while maybe some limb or another was ribly mangled but they complained not those heroes but Boys we arc glad you've conic Go to the front and fight tor that dear old lag which we all love Another aging sight met our eyes Around us there walked hundreds of half-clad natives of Hie lowest negro 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 selves on the sand to get a little rest preparatory to the hazards of row The next day's afternoon we t any longer But what could he A near friend would say Oh stick it out 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 we gradually once more op an open space in company front and got com- mand to drop 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 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 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 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 age us but we could not stop to pay honor they deserved but sped onward and at last reached a tle valley where as we passed through we were shelled and shot at by the Spanish artillery from the town but berc 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 ments our dear old colonel gave com- mand as though we were dress sarade Fours left captains rectify 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 The generals smiled for they had never seen such appearance and perfect line in time of battle and later on they cave the 1st Illinois a great ment saying that our duties were formed as perfectly as our alignment appeared when first

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 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 osophy and a solemn and religious tone that
