HE CAME TO GRIEF. .
A Jay Tried to Be Sharp, but His
Scheme Didn't Work.
A white man was put in the guard-house
last Thursday for cursing on the streets,
but the prime cause was that he undertook
to play a confidence game by endeavoring
to get a suit of clothes for bulldoze as a
medium of exchange.
After having selected a pair of shoes at
evi's store he had them laid a.Lin without
paying for them, and went over to Me
eod's ; there he could not be suited. He
hen went to Horton, Burgess & Co.'s and
ad some more goods put aside, and from
there he crossed over to Rigby's.
But everything must have an end, and
this sharp young man reached the end of
his tether here. He bought some clothing
from Mr. Joe Rigby and had them put
aside. A little later on, young Mr. Rigby
ad business out of the store, and while
e was absent the would-be sharp young
galoot went in and called for the package,
aiming to have paid for it. This, of
ourse, was questioned, as young Rigby

store that the goods wrapped up were not
When the sharper's veracity was ques

persuaded to await the salesman's return.
Wen the salesman returned he said the
man was mistaken ; that he had not paid
for the goods. This made the hayseed

elder Rigby saved the fellow from a good

We love to study about our great leaders
in the late- war, and the first one which
comes to my mind is General Robert E.
Lee, our great commander.
It was George Washington, away back
in 1781, who said: "I know of no country
that prodlnce a family all distinguished as
clever men as our Lees."
It was General Nathaniel Green who
wrote to the president of Congress on
February 18, 1780, that he was more in
debted to "Light-Horse Harry" Lee than
to any other for advantages grined over the
enemy, and it was "Light-Horse Harry"
Lee (Robert E. Lee's father) who was a
member of Congress when George Wa.h
ington died, and who made an address on
the occasion, using the phrase, "First in
war, first in peace, and first in the hearts
of his countrymen."
Henry Lee was about to embark for
England whien the Ame-rican revolution
bigan, and he substituted the sword for
the law book. He was distinguished for
keeping close to the enemy. In his "light
horse" command Peter Johnston, who
joined the legion at sixteen, led the -for
lorn hope" at Fort Watson, and was pub
licly thanked. Johnston afterward became
Judge Johnston. The intere-t in this
reminiscence becomes intensified in the
fact that these distinguished soldiers were
the fathers of Robert Edward Lee and
Joseph E. Johnston, and that they were
It was only a few days ago that one of
the old Mexican soldiers of the Palmetto
regiment was inquiring aboat the silver
cup to be given to the last survivor of the
Mexican war. I suppose he thought he
was the only living survivor, and it will
not be many years before it will be in the
possession of the last survivor of that
war. We, too, are hastenirg on to the
time when the old Confederate soldier will
be inquiring for his comrades, feeling that
he is the last one living.
Now is our time, if we ever expect to do
anything to keep up the memory of the
"Lost Cause." to assist in writing and
giving to the world . true history of our
One of Geceral Johnston's soldiers, on
his march home just after the surrender
in April, 1865, wrote from North Carolina:
"We are traveling tifty miles a day going
home to see fatber and mother and wife
and children and loved ones."
That old song, "The Girl I Left Behind
Me," comes impressively before me now.
"Just Before the Battle, Mother," "Tramp,
Tramp, Tramp, Tramp, the Boys Are
Marching," "Joe Bowers," "Lorena,"
"Maryland," "Dixie," and "When This
Cruel War Is Over," follow in rapid suc
cession before my vision.
But light up the camp-fire, boys ; tune
up the fiddle and bow ; 4ring in the old
tambourine, and listen ! oh, listen ! to the
tune of "The Girl I Left Behin d .die." As
the spirit-stirring strains fall on old Jim's

soul-inspiring sound attracts Servant Han
