PICKET SHOTS
-------
From Alert Comrades Along the Whole Line
A LOST SWORD
Comrade A. C. Simonton, First Lieutenant, Co. F 118th Ind., has been a practicing physician and surgeon since he left the service in 1865 and is now located at Roslyn, Wash., where he is surgeon of the Great Roslyn Coal Mines. Lieut. Simonton writes that he is anxious to recover a sword lost in the service Dec. 24, 1863. While resting on the banks of Clinch River, Tenn., he took off the sword and placed it on the ground. When the command moved he started without the sword. He thinks some comrade probably picked it up.
