Bow an Old Veteran Escaped Annihilation
and lived to Impart a Warn

(National Tribune of Washington.)
A pleasing occurrence which has just
come to our notice in connection with
tho New York State meeting of the Grand
Army of tho Republic is so unusual in
many respects that wo venture to re-
tJiuuuuu it ior mu oeneni oi our readers.
Captain Alfred Rensom, of New York,
whilo pacing in tho lolpby of the armory
h . . i.n i.ii.. r ii .... . i
previous toonooi the meetings, suddenly
stopped and scanned the face of a gentle
man who was in the earnes conversation
with one of the Grand Army officers. It
seemed to him that ho had seen that
face before, partiallj obscured by the
smoke of battle, and yet this bright and
pleasant countenance could not bo tho
same pale, and dcath-liko visage,
which he so dimly remembered. But
tho recollection, liko Banquo's ghost,
would not "down" at command and
haunted him tho entire day. On the
day following be again saw tho same
countenance and ventured to speak to
its owner. The instant the two veterans
heard each other's voices, that instant
they rocognized and called each other
by name. Their faces and forms had
changed, but thoir voices wcro the same.
The man whom Captain Rensom had
recognized was Mr. W. K. Sage, of St.
Johns, Mich., a vetenm of the 'I'M N. Y.
Light Artillery and both members of
Burnsido's famous expedition to North
Carolina. After the first greetings were
over, Captain Rensom said:
"It hardly secmj possible, Sage, to see
you in this condition, for I thought you
must have been dead long ago."
"Yes, I do not doubt.it, for if I am
not mistaken, when wo Inst met I was
occupying a couch in tho hospital, a
victim of "Yellow Jack" in its worst
"I remember. The war seems to have
caused more misery since its close than
when it was in progress," leplied tho
Captain. ''I meet old comrades frequently
who aro suffering terribly, not so much
from old wounds as from the malarial
poisons which ruined thcirconstitutions."
"I think so myself When tho war
closed I returned home and nt times I
would feel well, but every fow weeks
that confounded "all-gone" fooling w ould
como upon mo again. Jfv nervous sys
tem, which was shattcied in tho bervico,
failed mo entirely und pioduced ono of
tne worst possible cises oi nervous
dyspepsia. Most of tho time I had no
appetite; then again I would become rav
enously hungry, but the minuto I sat
dawn to eat I loathed food. My skin
was dry and parched my flesh loose and
flabby. I could hold nothing on my
stomach for days at a timo, and what
littlo I did eat failed to assimilate. I
was eosily fatigued; my mind was do
piessed; I was cioss and irritable and
many a night my heart would pain mo
so I could not sleep, and when I did I
had horrid dreams and frightful night
mares. Of course, these things came
on one by ono, each worse than tho
other. My breath was foul, my tonguo
was coated, my teeth decayed. I had
terrific headaches which would leavo my
nervous systom completely shattered.
In fact my existence, since the war, has
been a living death, from which I havo
often prayed for releaso."
' Couldn't the old surgeon do you any
"I wrote him and he treatcdmo, but liko
every other doctor, failed. They all said
my nervo was gone and without tuat to
bu'Id upon I could not got well. When
I was at my worst, piles of the severest
nature came upon me. Then my liver
gavo out and without the Ufo of
cathartics I could not movo my bowels
at all. My blood got like a stream of
firo and seemed literally to burn mo
"Well you might better havo died in
battlo, quick and without ceremony-"
"How many times I have wished I had
died thd day wo captured Nowberne!"
"And yet you aro now the picture of
"And tho picture is taken from life. I
am in perfect condition. My nervo tone
is restored; my stomach rcinvigoratcd;
my flesh is hard and healthy; in fact I
havo new blood, new energy and a now
lease of life wholly as the resultof using
Warner's Tippecanoe. This remarkable
preparation, which I consider tho finest
tome and stomach restorer in the world
has overcome all the evil influences of
malaria, all the poison of the army, all
traces of dyspepsia, all mal-assimilation
of food, and indeed made a new man of
The Captain remained silent for a
while evidently musini; over his recollec
tions of the past When he again raised
bis head be said :
"It would bo a godsend if all tho
veterans who hade suffered so intensely
and also all others in the land who are
enduring so much misery could know
of your experience, Sage, and the way by
which you havo been restored."
