P " CeS W1 " SUrpnSG y ° U> If VEESION OF A COMPANY F SOLDIER Tolls Why the Boys Were Sick at Chlekamauga—The News of the County Generally. Henry Bruhns of Company F tells a different story at Germania. Here is his version as given by the Standard: He states that the reports of the sanitary conditions at Chickamauga are greatly exaggerated and highly colored. The drainage of the camp is not at all as has been represented in newspaper reports, and the cause of most of the sickness has been the inability of the boys to control their appetites for the many good things placed so freely at their command. Many of them are young and inexperienced in the art of aelf-denial, and consequently too much dissipation combined with the unavoidable exigencies of camp life caused their sickness. Homesickness also played a prominent role with many of them. As for hardtack and stale meat, he says they received freshly baked bread and good fresh meat daily, the only difficulty experienced was in getting their meals : properly prepared. The boys were supposed to prepare their own meals, and two or three fellows in a company were hired to do it all. These fellows were usually too lazy to cook -or do anything else, or didn't know how. The reason such an outcry has been raised by the boys themselves is the fact that they were disappointed because they were unable to go to the front, tired of the monotony of camp life, and many of them homesick, and as soon'as they knew there was no prospect of a change they set up a terrible wail, with the result which we all know. DOS Moines, they were traveling through by wagon, hunting. Below here they decided to vary their diet with a mess of tame chicken, and the young boy wont Into tho weeds along the road to drive out some fowls belonging to u farmor for the others to shoot. They shot and the ball entered his right shoulder. It followed the bone down into his arm and could not be located with the probes for extraction, so he was obliged to go on his way heavier in spirits and his right side than before it happened.

She and all the boys will go to Riverside, Cal., which place will be their future home. Georgo Stone is putting on a large two-story addition to his house over In Portland.

'' Our other soldier boy, Guy Finley is home on furlough. He arrived on Tuesday morning and his many friends were glad to welcome him back.

Craft left for Cresco to purchase a tow mill and expects to have it in running order about the 1st of October. It will bo located near J. B. Barrack's farm four miles southeast until some time in December, when it will be moved to Wesley. About 3 a. m. last Saturday morning Private Ira Adams arrived in Britt from Camp McKinley, and took the bus for the Allison house. The porter was showing him a room when the landlord appeared on the scene and politely told Ira in the queen's English "that he could not stop there, as his system was infected with fever germs and the boarders would object." Ira had gotten used to heeding orders and so decamped forthwith and found shelter for tho remainder of the night in a livery stable. ll that landlord ever had any milk of """an kindness it must have oozed out with his patriotism some time since the w&r.
