MEXICAN WAR MEDAL.
Valuable Relic Goes to Sister of John I
Shealy-A History of the
The Herald and News some weeks
igo published an article from Con
,ressman Aiken, stating that he found
'he Mexican War Medal in Washing
ton which belonged to one John
Shealy, and that if any of his relatives
were legally -entitled to receive it, he
would be v4ery glad to give the medal
to same. The medal has been in the

succeeded in locating a sister of the
Mexican soldier, John Shealy.
At the request of The Herald and
News, Col. D. A. Dickert has furnish

medal and the history of these medals:
"Some time ago Congressman Aiken
learned that there was in the city of
Washington, a soldier's medal, pur
porting to belong to one John Shealy,
:f South Carolina, a soldier of the
exican war. Col. Aiken interested
imself in the matter, and got the
medal in his possession, and wrote to
'.lerk of Court Goggans, to find out,
f possible, to whom this heirloom be
longed. After months of diligent in
juiry, Mr. Goggans heard of a nephew
>f the Mexican soldier, and after some
:orrespondence, he discovered the
whereabouts of a sister, now living in

$10,000 for the erection of a monument
to the soldiers of the Mexican war

The Herald and'News made mention
Friday of the good work done by Mas
ter William Haskell Derrick, of Little
Mountain, as agent for the Saturday
Evening Post. He has won the prize
in South Carolina for the month of
September given to towns the size of
Little .Mountain for the largest -num
ber of subscribers. Master William
Haskell began as an agent in July of
this year. For the first two or three
weeks he sold only ten 'to fifteen
copies. From that ti,me he has gradu
ally increased his sales and at present
he is selling t,wo to three hundred
copies each week. For the last two
weeks he has been leading all the boys
in the United States for the Shetland
pony and outfit offered to boys in
towns the size of'Little Mountain who
may sell the largest number.
William is 11 years old. He is a
student in the Little Mountain high
school and son of Mr. Joe B. Derrick.
He desires The Herald and News to
thank his many friends for the aid
they have .given him .this national
ontest and he assures them that his

prize is very good, and hopes that his
friends will continue to give him en

"The Girl in the Taxi," which comes
to the city opera house for an engage
nent Thursday night, October 26, was
ist produced in Paris under the title
"Le Fils a Papa," which mnight be ren
lered "Like Father Like Son." The
piece created one of the grea-test sen
Isations the French .metropolis has ever
known and rag for more than 1,000
nights. It was originally written by
Anthony Mars, that past master in
the art of intrigue. The American
daptation was made by Stanislaus
Stange, and holds the record for the
lo,g runso any similar play in New
York, Chicago and Boston. The locale
has been changed from Paris to New
York, but the play retains all the hu-'
mor and atmosphere of midnight life
which made it so popular abroad.
In the author's opinion, "The Girl
in the Taxi" is by far the cleverest
and funniest piece credited to his fa

humor, more interesting and amusing
characters, and more ludicrous, yet
possible complications and embarras.
