CAPTOB AND CAPTIVE.
A Cheerful Story of tho Ameni
ties of "War.
The Fljjht ami tho Kout Taken Prisoner
A Warrior as Gentle and Honor
able as Was BravoAfter
Would you like an interesting war
Btory? We have it, and it reads like
a romance. The story begins with
the charge of Wilson's Western cav
alry on the Confederates around Co
lumbus. Geueral Howell Cobb's com
mand occupied Girard, just across the
Chattahoochee river, and the news
came that Wilson's cavalry was bear
ing rapidly on the town, and that this
dashing troop would reach Girard by
about seven o'clock in the evening.
They came on time and the Confeder
ate forces, greatly outnumbered, and
taken on such brief notice, were at
immense disadvantage. The Fed
01 al cavalry had come like a cy
clone, and the face of the earth was
literally dotted with them. They held
every point around the town and ad
vanced from all directions. Before
night they charged the Confederate
forces, and in a few minutes the battle
was on. Fierce was the struggle, as,
locked almost in each other's lines,
the two contesting forces fought for
supremacy. But it was soon over the
Confederates could not hola out against
the heavy odds, and retreat was the
only escape from capture or annihila
tion. One after another the lines
broke, and in tho darkness of the night
the Confederates found themselves
absolutely disorganized, companies
lost from their commands, soldiers
from their companies, and every man
struggling to keep out of the enemy's
"To the bridge'" was the cry.
The scattered Confederates rushed
to the bridgo to escape to the Georgia
side only to find it in flames! Some
had gotten over in safety and many
went through as best they could, fight
ing fire and picking their way through
the sputtering timbers.
Among the last to pass the bridge was
Second Lieutenant Charley Howell, of
Company C, First Georgia Regiment
a boy, scai ce eighteen years of age.
He was lost from his company and
found himself a stranger among
strangers, but the gray uniform he
wore called a kind word from a strap
ping Tex.in who, like him, was a
refugee, but had fortunately escaped
on horseback, and had succeeded in
bringing another horse with him,
which ho led,
"Want to ride?" said the Texan,
adding hurriedly: "Better git up
wo ain't got no time to spare!"
No sooner said than done, and over
tho road leading from Columbus
toward Greemille, in Meriwether
County, the little Lieutenant and the
sturdy Texan jogged along together in
tho darkness of the night.
The Toxan was on his way to Macon,
where he hoped to join friends, and
Lieutenant Howell was on his way
home to Atlanta, and he wanted to get
there by the most direct route, which
accounted tor his not accepting the
generous offer of his companion to
"keep your horse and come on with
me to Macon." They separated after
a day's ride together, one continuing
north toward Atlanta, and the other
leacung a riderless horse toward
On the second day aftor the fight at
Giiard Lieutenant Howell found him

The sun was sinking over the mount
ains, which rise in that section as if
by somo error of nature, and the trav

The road hugged a mountain sti earn,
and a bend brought in full view a mill
cozily nestled on its banks, while
across tho road was ono of those old
time Southern mansions, of immacu
late white, with broad piazzas, and
possessing au air of hospitality which
seemed to aoy, "come in." Several
ladies were about the yard, two in
deep mourning-., as soon appeared, for
hjusj^auds, who hid gone to the war
never %a return. The guay coat at the
gato attracted 'thoir eyes and opened
their hearts. *HJonie in," they said,
"wo will do the best we can for you.
"You are hungry. We have but little
left, but what we-have wo will share."
Soon the traveler"* story was told.
The party were seated on the broad
piazza overlooking the mill, and the
chirping of tho crickets, the mo
notonous hum of "the water playing
ni'ith tho mill-wheel, and the noise of a
grentlo wind toying with the limbs of
tho -toworin? oaks, lent an air of
solemnity to the ooeasiem.
There are sounds of the pattering
of horsos' hoofs!
In anothor minute the bejtd is

ficramcd Hie ladies, in consternation.
Thei-iders had promptly'teoyered1'
the youny officer with their revolvers,
and, advancing' toward the house, one
40f them in Captain*s uniform, said:
"Have no fear, ladies we will not
Immyou." Then, turning to Lieut
enant Howell, the speaker continued:
*'Imut I am unarmed."
"You re a rebel?"
"I'm not called such our way, but if
tno term suits you, all right"
"You wear a, Lieutenant stripes, j.
seethey take 'em young down here."
"Not too young tohght."
"Well, come on, we will have to
take you in charge," and the threo
left the yard, the cavalrymen mount
ing and the prisouer following on foot.
In this way they left the old man
sion, turning southward Soon the
Captain turned to hi* prisoner with
tho remark: "You will find it hard
work to keep up with us on foot
hadn't you better get up behind
John?" motioning to his attendant.
And get up behind John he did, and in
this way they rode for several hours.
Late in the night Captain Louthan,
for it was Captain J. W. Louthan, of
the Seventeenth Indiana Cavahy, his
attendant and prisoner, reached his
command, about seventy-five men,
who had been detailed as scouts after
the Columbus fight. In tho meantime
the Captain had said to his prisoner
that if he would promise not to at
tempt eseajje ho would be treated
properly and be protected in camp
from any trouble. The promise made,
the young Lieutenant felt easy. When
they joined the command of scouts the
soldiers aiound the camp-fires eyed
the prisonerthe only one in camp
inquisitively, and a burly Pennsyl
vanian remarked, the Captain having
"What do you want with that little
rebel? We'll just have to kill him to
get rid of him!"
"Captain," (aid the prisoner, next
morning, "they are talking about kill
ing me am I to be protected?"
"Who talked about it? the officer
"That man there," pointing to the
Pennsylvanian who had made the
"Dang you," said the officer, "don't
you know that this is my prisoner,
and I will shoot the man who touches
To the prisoner he said: "I have
your promise that you will not try to
escape. I will take you at your word.
We are going from here to Macon, and
may get into several skirmishes on the
march. A horse will be provided for
you, and when we get to fighting you
must keep to the rear."
On the march to Macon the scouts
fell into several warm skirmishes, and
Captain Louthan was always in the
front. "He was as brave a man as I
ever saw," said Mr. Howell in speak
ing of him. "He was a hard fighter,
and always kept in front of his men.
Whenever we stopped on the march at
houses along the road he was as gen
tle and as kind to the ladies as any
man could be. He would say to them
in assuring them that their fright was
unnecessary: 'Madam, these men
shall do nothing that your own sol
diers would not do. You will oblige
us with something to eat, and I trust
you will not consider it plunder on our
part It is one of the exigencies of
At this time the Federals held Macon
it was the week that Lee surren
deredand a thousand Confederate
prisoners were under guard in. a large
cotton warehouse in that city. Cap
tain Louthan joined his command in
Macon, and his single prisoner fell
into the warehouse with the other
prisoners. A day and a night he
stayed there, almost suffocated, poorly
fed, and scarcely cared for at all. On
the second day Captain Louthan, an
officer of the day, saw him through
one of the warehouse windows, near
which he was standing, and exclaimed:
"Why, I forgot about you. You
must get out of that?"
The Captain elbowed his way
through the jam of prisoners and
telling him to "come along," led
the prisoner out and carried him to
his tent on the bank of the Ocmulgee.
"You will stay here,"" he said, "and
with the promise that you will re
member that you are my prisoner and
will report here three times a day at
meals, I will relieve you of guard."
On the third day the Captain re
marking that the "trouble was about
over," asked his prisoner if he would
accept a parole. "I can get it for you,
and you can go home and Heaven

to find some trace of him there. But
he eould hear nothing.
Several weeks ago, in casual conver
sation with Mr. Ira M. Swartz, with
Captain Jacobs in charge of the work
on OMIT new army post, something
about the story was 'mentioned.
"I think I can find him,'' satd Mr.
Swartz, and find him he did, at Dun

at once wrote him. A reply came as

glad to hear from you. I recollect the time that

We extract the following items from
the last isbue of the Arizona Kicker:
THE LAST^ STIIAV.'.For the last six
months ILi/br Davis, of this burgh,
has lost no opportunity of abusing us
and boasting of what he would do if
wo did not step softly. The reason for
Ibis conduct lies in the fact that the
Kicker not only called him a horse
thief, but proved him a bigamist be
sides. Last Saturday the Major, who
has no more right to that title than a
mule has to that of "professor," bor
rowed a shot-gun and gave out that he
had camped on our trail and meant to
riddle our system with buckshot on
sight. Word was brought to us, and
although wo wre very busy at the
time superintending our combined
weekly newspaper, harness shop, gro
cery, bazar and gun store (all under
one roof, and the largest retail estab
lishment in Arizona), we laid aside
our work and went over to Snyder's
saloon in search of the Major. We
found nim, and we gave him such a
whipping as no man iu this town ever
got before. He lies a broken and
stranded wreck on the shores of time,
so to speak, and the doctor says it will
be six v, eeks before he will find any
more trails or do any more camping.
SLIPPED A COG.In company with
the elite of this neighborhood we were
invited to the abode of Judge Graham
last Thursday evening to witness the
marriage of County Clerk Dan Scott to
the beautiful Arabella Johnson, only
daughter of the aristocratic widow
Johnson, of Bay Horse Hights. The
widow had maue a spread worthy of
the days of Cleopatra, and Dan had on
a new suit sent by express from Omaha
for the occasion. Every thing passed
off pleasantly until eight o'clock, at
which hour the bride was discovered
to be missing, and investigation soon
brought out the fact that she had gone
dead back on Dan and skipped the tra
la, whatever that is, with a bold cow
boy named French Jim. She left a
message to the effect that she could
never, never love a man with a cata
ract in his left eye, and that meant
Dan. There was a feast, but no wed
ding, and Daniel will have to try again.
EXPLANATORY.As several versions
of the incident that occurred in our
office Saturday night are flying around
town and have probably been tele
graphed all over the world, we deem
it but right to give the particulars as
they occurred. We were seated in the
editorial chair, writing a leader on the
European situation, when a rough
character^ known around town as
"Mike the Slayer" called in. As we
had never had a word with the man,
we suspected no evil. As a matter of
fact we reached for our subscription
book, supposing, of course, that he
wanted the best weekly in America
for a year. The Slayer then announced
that he had come to slay us, not be
cause we had ever done him harm, but
because the influence of the press was
driving out the good old times and
customs. We retreated towards the
door of our harness department. He
pursued,. us with a drawn knife. We
then felt it our duty to draw our gun
and let six streaks of daylight through
his bedy, and as he went down we
stepped to the door and sent a boy for
the coroner. It was a clear case of
self-defense, and the inquest was a
mere formality. We lament the sad
occurrence, but no one can blame us,
We paid-*his burial expenses, and in
another column will be found his obitu
ary, written in our best vein and with
out regard to space. No other Arizona
editor has ever done half as much.
N HARM DONE The boys got after
a stranger the other evening who was
pointed out as a horse-thief, and ran
him all over town with the object of
pulling him up to a limb. In some
manner he gave them the slip, and in
their zeal they got hold of Judge Dow
ney and held him up to a limb for over
a minute before the error was discov
ered. The judge is gu-guing around
with a sore throat and stiff neck and
threatens to bring about fifty damage
suits. Take a friend's advice, judge,
and hush up. You got off powerful
easy, considering your geueral charac
ter. While it was a mistake, the boys
were not so far wrong after all. We
wish such mistakes would occur oftener.
W E BI DE OUR TIME.While selling
Mrs. Colonel Prescott four pounds of
prunes for half a dollar the other day
Constable Button entered and asked us
to step across the street to the office of
Esquire Williams. We obeyed the re
quest, and were at once served with a
warrant charging us with keeping
bales of hay on the sidewalk in front
of the Kicker office to the detriment of
pedestrians. As is well known, we
run a grocery, feed store, harness shop,
bazar and music house in connection
with the Kicker, and the hay was out

Tierjurer, and if we can't drive him out
of the country in six weeks we will

complaint did it to get even with us

What is necessary to success in dai

limestone soil, perhaps, but any fertile,
well-drained soil "hat will grow good
pasture is adapted to this purpose.
Clay loam soil is always good. The
land should be moderately level and
What kind of cows are best? Good
milk cows. That comprehends all. No
matter about tho breed. Of course you
want cows adapted to the kind of dairy
ing followed. For butter, Jersey blood
oxcels, but it would be folly to keep a
Jersey herd if the milk is to be sold by
the quart For cheese purposes, the
Ayrshire and Holstein blood is good.
Short-horns are good for butter and
oheese and milk, and selected native
cows excel as good milkers for almost
any purpose A short-horn grade la
an excellent cow, and the various
grades and crosses of Holstein, Ayr
shire, Jersey and Devon make the best
of dairy cows.
How should the dairyman keep up
his herd? By breeding and raising his
own cows. He can in this way grade
up a herd to the highest point of ex
cellence, and at no greater cost, after
starting, than in raising serubs. Get
a good male, of good milking strain,
and breed to the best cows.
What crops should the dairyman
raise? Besides pasture, the main crop
should be corn for ensilage. It is now
settled that a silo is essential to the
greatest success in dairying. For the
dairy herd he nee*ael*d other crops,

Two Hundred, and Eighty Years of Im
In 1G09, after traversing the Hudson
River trom its mouth to Albany, and care
fully noting the graudeur and beauty on
either side of this magnihcent highway of
nature, Heudrict Hudson wrote these
"It Is "as beautiful a land as one cah tread upon."
Two hundred and eighty years have mar
velously increased the beauty of the great
river called by his name, and could he re
turn to the scenes of his manhood, he
would fina many more lovely sights
than those upon which his eyes rested
in the early part of the seventeenth
century. The natural beauties of the
Hudson are much the same, and no
description can exaggerate them but the
magnificent steamers that ply between NeV/
York and Albany, the innumerable sailing
craft that dot the surface of the mighty
river, the never-ending clusters of canal
boats that are being towed up and down,
the beautiful villas that one encounters at
every turn, the magnificent monuments,
perpetuating heroic deeds, that we find here
and there along the banks of this noblest
river of the continent, add an endless va
riety to the scenery, and a resistless charm
to the eye of the traveler.

When the Children Need a Tonic, give them S.S.S., as did the Old Woman who Lived in a Shoe.
