Hard on the soldiers

--The Washington Star gives the Yankee soldiers the following interesting information:

‘ Every soldier who loses his gun, whether in cowardly throwing it away on the field of battle, or through neglect, is to have twelve dollars, the price of the gun, deducted from his pay. This will show the man that guns are no toys, to be thrown away whenever it is manitory to carry them.
