Eaton, leg shot off; John Kelley, wounded slight; Lieutenant Perrin, slight; Edward Howard, slight. Captain Ball of the Third Minnesota was wounded in three places and under the most aggravating circumstances. When the enemy charged up the railroad, finding themselves in a dangerous place, they waved their hands in token of surrender.

Both classes of these are made entirely by hand, and it was not until 1850 that the plan of employing machinery for the purpose was suggested. This originated with Mr. A. L.
