Among the many vastly interesting
reminiscences of valor and boroism
which were recalled anil narrated by
the Confederate soldiers during their
recent reunion here, none were more
thrilling than the storv related by Uol.
Geo. M. Edgar of how Allen Woodrum
of this county, after being mortally
wounded, endeavored to hide the battle
Hag of his battalion beneath his cloth
ing and fell upon it to prevent its cap
ture. Allen Woodrum was a member
of Co. D. of Edgar's Battalion, and
was its color-bearer. He was born in
Monroe county, in the vicinity of Red
Sulphur Springs, and was as gallant a
soldier as ever marched to battle. On
the morning of the 2nd of June, 1864.
at second Hold Harbor, that portion of
Gen. Lee's line held by Edgar's Battal
ion was desperately charged by the Fed
eral forces. The awful carnage of
those dreadful battles in the Wilderness
which had just preceded were telling
upon the Army of Northern Virginia,
and while its lion-hearted veteran sol
diers were as dauntless and as devoted
as they had ever been, yet their num
bers had been sadly diminished and
that " thin, grey line" so drawn out as
to be at many points scarce stronger
than a skirmish line. It was this at
tenuated condition of their rankB that
rendered it impossible for Edgar's men
to concenter upon the charging Feder
als a Are sufficiently strong to repulse
them before they reached the Confeder
ate breastworks. As it was, the line
of blue-coats struck the entrenchments
and for an instant there was a tierce
hand-to-hand encounter, then the Fed
eral wave swept over aud seemed to en
gulf the few defenders. A number of
Confederates were here temporarily
taken prisoner, among them Colonel
Edgar, who had received a bayonet
wound in the shoulder. But before
this happened he says he saw Allen
Woodrum fighting desperately with the
Yankees on the breastworks above him*
he thrusting at them with the sharp
lance-point of the staff of his battle
Hag. In a few moments, and just as
the Federal line surged over the Con
federate defenses, Allen Woodrum was
pierced by several bullets, but as he
fell he tore from its staff his dear bat
tie-tlag and attempted to thrust it be
neath his clothing out of sight ? then
falling backward in death he lay upon
it interposing his body between it and
its enemies. In a few moments the
counter-charge of. the Confederate re
serves repulsed the Federals, driving
them back with heavy slaughter to
their own lines and re-capturing the
most of the Confederates who bad a
few moments before been taken pris
oners, Col. Edgar among them. Allen
Woodrum was found lying in the en
trenchments dead, but even in death
still protecting the Hag of his country
which was hidden beneath him. Faith
ful was he indeed unto death ? a mod
est. big-hearted country boy who lived
and died like a hero.
Gen. Gordon was deeply moved by
this incident, and after his departure
last week wrote back to ask for the
name and command of the soldier in
question. It may be interesting to re
call that Allen Woodrum was a brother
of Mr. W.C. Woodrum, now residing
not far from Bed Sulphur Springs, in
Summers county, who was also a good
soldier, serving in Company F, (under
Capt. Morton,) Edgar's Battalion.?

Hence, we hardly know what to say, so we thought of just writing
you a short letter and tolling you of what we have to show you. ?
will surpass in quantity and styles any stock we have
over shown, ami you all know that wo have always
been right up to the Top Notch in Styles. We bought
SHOES LONG BEFORE THE ADVANCE, and can
25 TO 50 CENTS PER PAIR ON THEM
25 cents is a big thing, you know, and you cannot af
ford to throw it away on each pair of Shoes that you
may want this fall. Our fall CAPES AND JACKETS
were bought from the makers, and are the proper
things. No last years1 shapes to show you. The prices
are lower than ever. In
