FINE TRIBUTE TO THE 52D IOWA. THp to Lookout Mountain Not Taken as Expected—Recruit* Peel Gay With New Uniforms. CAMP THOMAS, Chiclmmauga Park, Ga., July 23.—Company F's sick Hst is the largest It has ever been and we hope the largest it will ever be. Captain Cooke has been obliged to go home on account of sickness, Ellison Blackford is rapidly improving from a severe attack of typhoid and Edgar Winkle is very sick in division hospital with the same disease, Wo have a few sick in quarters but the three above named are the only serious cases, the others being mostly stomach complaints. Company F has been justly proud of her record in regard to sickness. We have had as little as any company in the regiment, and have yet. Mrs. Black ford stopped here for a moment this morning on her way to see Edgar Winkel at the division hospital and reports Ellison much improved. Ho will get a furlough and will accompany his mother to Cleveland, Ohio, whore her brother lives. It is too long a trip to Algona for him to stand in his present weak condition. The recruits are feeling very gay with their new uniforms and equipments, which they have been receiving all the week. They are standing the change of climate in fine shape and are going to make good soldiers. -*--!- -f- Our much planned-on trip to Lookout mountain was killed at the last moment by Gen. Compton, the division commander, who said he would be very glad to have us take a practice march but we must confine ourselves to the limits of the park. Needless to say no one wanted to walk around the familiar grounds here with 60 pounds on his back. -»--*--»Following is a piece of poetry which was handed around to the men of the Fifty-second yesterday.

" What lovely letters I receive from Ma•y Hopkins," said one young lady to another in our hearing, and while we are not acquainted with the individual referred to, yet this remark gives us a favorable opln- on of her, which we likewise have of all who master the art of letter writing, for such persons seldom fail to win their way to social and business prominence. Parents, give your boys and girls a chance. Buy each one of them, who is ten years old and over, a scholarship in some tchool of correspondence where trained ;eaohers conduct a practical and instructive and exceedingly interesting course of social and business correspondence with their scholars, old or young, at their homes. At the school named below the price of lUition has been reduced to the remarkably small sum of $2.40 per year, payable sixty cents quarterly in advance, or $3.00 in one ash payment. For some time this school has also furnished its scholars all needed stationery, and will continue to do so in the future. Let that progressive word, " Now," which has been the key note to so many successful careers, be your watchword, and apply at once for a scholarship in the National School of Correspondence at 1805 Fourth Ave. South, Minneapolis, Minn.
