I Bow an Old Veteran Escaped Annihilation and lived to Impart a Warn ing to ctheis. (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 form." "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 gCO'l !" "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 alive." "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 health." "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 me." 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." And that is why the abovejeonvorsation is recounted. Congress is considering tho appropria tion of $85,000 to carry out tho agree, ment mado with Mosc and the other bands of tho Columbia river reservation; also, it is probable that Joseph and his Xez Percos will bo moved back to Lap wai reservation in Idaho. The loss of the ocean steamer State of Florida, and 120 lives, is cliargod to care leisness on tho part of tho officers as it was a clear night and a smooth sea, so collision should have been avoided.
