was in the hospital lafit summer,

nurse he considered - especially
competent and he took her from
the hospital, at a greatly advanced
salary, to care for Mrs. Pierce.
The expense of these two years
has been tremendous, but that has

was his object.
When affairs of state crowded

59 years after the close of the
Civil war," he said.
"'The citizen soldier, predicted
as being unfit to return to private
life, has shown his worth. From.
their ranks have been drawn presi
