The Grand Army of the Republic has attained a membership of over a hundred hundred thousand. Col. Robert B. Beath, who has recently recently been elected Commander-in-Chief Commander-in-Chief Commander-in-Chief Commander-in-Chief Commander-in-Chief of the G. A. R., was born in Philadelphia Philadelphia in 1839. He entered the serv ice in 1861 as a private, and remained in the field until the close of the war. While serving in the capacity of First Lieutenant of the Fifty-eighth Fifty-eighth Fifty-eighth Pennsyl vania Volunteers at the second battle of Bull Run he was wounded, and imme diately upon his recoyery was promoted to the command of a company of col ored troops, and served with them in the Army of the James. At Newmarket Heights, Va., while making a gallant charge, he was again wounded, and lost his right leg, September 29, 1864. As soon as he could leave the hospi tal he returned to military duty at camp William Penn, Philadelphia, and re mained there until his health permitted him to join his regiment. He was mustered mustered out in September, 1865, with a lieutenant colonel's commission. After the war he turned his entire at tention to business affairs, and for several several years was secretary of the Anthracite Anthracite Mining Exchange. In 1871 he was elected Surveyor-Gen Surveyor-Gen Surveyor-Gen eral of Pennsylvauia, and after his term of office expired returned to Phila delphia, where he engaged in the insur ance business, being now the secretary of the United Firemen's Insurance Co.

Even in time of peace, it requires no small amount of tact and energy to manage 100,000 men, but Col. Beath has a record which fully justifies his being entrusted with the important and honorable office which has been conferred conferred upon him. FROM THE CIIAPLA1A. Lake Conneaut, Aug. 16, 1883. Dear Jqor: We bade adieu to Webster Webster on Tuesday morning, August 7th, having for our objective point Lake Conneaut, but stopped a few days at Apollo, a former charge, where we spent the time very pleasantly among friends of other years. On Saturday we started for camp over the Allegheny Valley railroad, changing cars at Franklin for Meadville. and at Mead-ville Mead-ville Mead-ville for the camp. The country traversed by these roads is certainly very rough. I wish the farmers up our way could see these poor farms; I am sure they would return return home and be contented to till their limestone soil. Upon arrival in camp I was cordially welcomed by the Tenth Regiment, with whom I have been, as Chaplain, for the last five years. 1 missed the company from MonoLgahela City, and it is generally generally exceeded that great injustice was done them in disbanding their organization, organization, all because one man wanted to show his authority." The Brigade is encamped at Oakland Beach, two miles across the lake from Kvansburgh. It is by far the best situation we have ever had for the encampment the ground elevated and overlooking the lake. Water from the lake is brought to all the company quarters by pipes. loo is cheap, and for fresh milk only 20 cents a gallon. Supplies do not appear to bo hard to get, and at reasonable prices. The Brigade, under General Beaver's olose supervision, is making great progress progress in everything that goes to make the perfect soldier. The men are also granted many privileges, lint they do not seem to abuse them. When the company and battallion drills are over the boj-3 boj-3 boj-3 are at liberty to fish, hunt and visit all the points of interest about the lake. The lake abouads in fish, and it is not unusual for two men, in an hour, to catch from 25 to 50 fish. Turtles are also plentiful, and turtle-soup turtle-soup turtle-soup is almost daily served for dinner. The Brigade dress parades have all been very tine, all the regiments trjing to do their best; for, as you know, Major, it is the dress parade and the review which show whether good work has been done in company and battalion drills. AH the regiments have done well. The papers of Pittsburg, of course, always say that the 14th and 18th regiments have done the best, as these regiments are from Pittsburg, but their verdict is not usually usually the verdict of the spectators. The Tenth carried oft the honors the other evening; but this is not to be wondered wondered at when we state that Col. Hawk-ens Hawk-ens Hawk-ens is one of the most painstaking offi cers in camp. Major J. G. Sloan, of your city, is well, and carefully looks after the sick of the regiment. He and I room together at a farm house near by, and the only objection I have to him as a room-mate room-mate room-mate is that he snores too loud. Oh, Moses! To-morrow To-morrow To-morrow evening camp will be broken, and then home again. W. C. Weaver. One car of Jersey's finest water melons, melons, fresh from the patch, received by R.
