FURNITURE Undertaking Goods REMINDER OP CH1CKAMAUGA Aft Aigotia Veteran Receives a Memento of the Bloodiest Battle of the War, Two Days of Stubborn Fighting, and then Andersonville—The loth Wis i; conson's Monument on the Field. Col. Spencer has received from an jomrade, W. A. Collins, of Chicago, a photograph of the monument now being erected on the battle fleld of Chickamauga, to mark the line where his regiment, the Tenth Wisconsin, withstood the rebel hosts on that bloody field for two clays, September 19 and 20, 1863. There were 240 men of theTenth who en- ;ered the engagement, only 27 of whom regained the federal lines. The men simply fought and died in their tracks, or captured when the line of retreat was cut off. Col. Spencer was there taken prisoner and sent to Andersonville. A writer in the Philadelphia Ledgei' contends that Chickamauga was the. most stubbornly contested battle of the war and the most protracted example of valor in the world's history. Probably no writer has told the story of the battle in fewer words than this one. He says: The percentage of losses amounted to more than those incurred by the British army in a century, Waterloo and Crimea included. Thero were over, a score of regiments on each side whose loss exceeds 49.4 per cent, which was the heaviest loss sustained by a German regiment in the Franco-Prussian war. We recite with a feeling of 'awe•the' famous "Charge of the Light Brigade." Thirty regiments, composed of Western soldrers, who fought at Ghickamauga, lost 10 per cent more men. When cold type 1 records- the,; statement, verified from official;, returns,; that about 33 per cent 'on each side'of the troops' actually engaged were listed among the casualties, and thalb a large number of organizations of both sides came* out Pi "the battle with a loss, of every'Ot^ei?-man whp. en-, kiliad.or v?puniied, some- con : caption of the ".dreadful desperation jsvhlch marked ,the:struggle can tained. There is a historical tablet in on one face of the base. The monument is unpretentious, the only- figure surrpounting the base being that of ,a iplor bearer with his flag. The.., recipient will count the photo amon,g his treasures, and often will it bring" back to memory his struggle on the field of glory. OFF FOR MISSOURI. consul, but Will allow him to work in a fleld which is better suited to his tastes, which Will be lecturing and generally showiiig up in this country the advantages of Venezuela, and the mutual benefits to be derived by both countries in uniting their trade interests. Mr. ttahna, while U. S. Consul for Venezuela, was much impressed with the advantages which would accrue to the United States if proper relations existed between us, and was ever on the aleffc to strengthen those relations. This effort on- his part was i yidently appreciated there, and they have remembered him in the above mariner, and conferred this honor in the hope that he will continue his Work for them in this Country. While he had some intimation that his app'iint- ment could be secured by him if he asked for it, yet it has come upon him in the shape of a surprise, as he has made little effort to secure it- The remuneration for his services cannot be stated exactly at this time. They are made by an appropriation of the Venezuelan congress, which convenes next month. His friends here are much pleased at this just recognition of his talents. His headquarters will be at Des Moines. The Men CHEAP RAILROAD RATES, For the various occasions mentioned below one.standard first class fare for the round trip, viz: .

The country about Rolla is largely settled with Northern people already, and new men are taking up the land, so these'people are not going out of civilization quite so much as they would have been obliged to do had they gone there ten years ago.
