Medal for Capt. Dnncau,
After the Lancaster company hud
been mustered out at Lexington, Satur
day, the Madison county members
presented Capt Sam Duncan with
handsome medal as a token of their
high regard for him. We heard one of
them say "That man is the 'best officer
I ever saw, and we all have learned to
love him. He has a warm spot in our
hearts.," We' also' heard members of
other companies say Sam was the best
captain in the regiment .

More Fnvors from Mr. Hood.
The people of Lancaster should take
off their hats to Sup't Hood. He has
certainly worked to help us all along
and is continuing to do so. His latest
move is to have the afternoon train
.rom Stanford cha-ged to arrlvj an
hour earlier, thus giving the peopl
the uaners and mail at 3:15. The
change is a much' needed one, as
man can get hismail in time to w6r'

Tough Called Down.?
Everybody who travels on the Queen

the clever and accommodating conduc

d Saturday night while coming down

A. number of soldiers were on the train,
and, as usuil, there were several who
were anxious to attract attention.
