SOUTHERN STANDARD MCMINNVILLE. TENNESSEE. SATURDAY, SEPT, 5,1891.-
N. Y. Recorder.
Among the many brilliant figures
whone Kallantry and during won only
local celebrity In North Carolina
during the war, none was more con
spicuous than O'Neal, the scout.
Accomplished and daring, yet he
was wholly unknown beyond the
limit of his field of action. He was a
handsome man, tall, muscular and
graceful, a fine swordsman, a capital
shot and one of the best riders that
ever put foot in a stirrup.
He never forgot a road or the lay
of the land, and he always remem
bered a face, or a voice. For the rest
he was cool, quick-witted, quiet and
observant. During the time that my
command was in eastern North
Caralina I frequently served as a
scout with O'Neal and not seldom ac
companied him into the enemy's
lines, especially about the time that
Gen. Hooker made his march against
In that town lived a pretty wo
man who was a great friend of
O'Neal, and who was also much ad
mired by Gen. Terry, the command
ant of the Union forces stationed
there. " Miss for patriotic reasons
accepted the attentions of the Gen
eral, and betrayed his confidences
unscrupulously to O'Neal. When
ever there was a ball given in the
city O'Neal attended if possible.
Superbly uniformed as a federal of
ficer or plainly dressed as a citizen,
he invariably monopolized Miss,
to the great chagrin of Gen. Terry,
who relished a bit of flirtation with a
pretty woman as much as tbost
On one occasion, when O'Neal had
absorbed the lady's attention, Gen.
Terry came up and abruptly demand
ed his name and regiment. O'Neal
was masquerading as a captain in
newly arrived regiment, and gave
the required information without a
moment's hesitation. But Gen. Ter
. ry'9 suspicions had evidently been
aroused, and he demanded to see his
O'Neal measured him with a cool
stare and then said quietly :
"This is a very singular demand,
Gen. Terry, but it you will accom
pany me to the ha!l, where I left my
overcoat, I think I can satisfy
Gen. Terry, with singular obtuse
ness, if he really had any suspicions
went with him. There were only a
few soldiers standing near the door
and they were absorbed, watching
the ballroom. Now it chanced that
U'JSenl always hung his coat near
the outer door. He slipped his han
into the pocket, saying:
4,I hope this will settle the ques
tion satisfactorily, general," and as
he withdrew it he brought the heavy
barrel of a navy revolver with stun
1 ng force across the head of the doubt
ing general, and, dashing at full
speed through the open door, turned
a comer and disappeared before the
panic created by his daring had time
to subside. .
On another occasion his audacity
took a bolder flight. Gen. Terry
. owned a superb cream-colored thor
oughbred horse, which he valued so
highly that he had it cared lor like a
. scion of royalty.
O'Neal had a passion for a fine
horse, and wanted it, and bets ran
high in camp as to how soon he
would ride in on the thoroughbred.
One day an awkward, gangling
"sand hill tackey," dressed in copperas-dyed
jeans and wearing large
silver-rimmed spectacles, presented
himself at Terry's headquarters and
asked for a permit to pass through
the lines. To a close examination he
gave such unquestionable evidence
of good faith, soft brains and "buffa
lo" loyalty that the pass was given
him amid much chafing, and Gen.
Terry asked him how he meant to
travel. "On a critter," he answered.
"A horse, I suppose you mean.
Well, where is he?"
"Ilithed out thar in the street,"
said the cracker, pointing to a small,
fuzzy, indiscribably wretched-looking
little Banker pony.
"Why, you don't expect to ride
" twenty miles on that miserable
brute, do you?" asked the general.
"Thout I kin swap him for a bet
ter," was the reply us the old man
shambled awkwardly out of the
About two hours belore dawn a
man riding a superb cream-colored
horse presented himself at the out
posts, showed his permit from (Sen.

through the linos without question,
and three hours later both horse and
rider were safe in the Confederate

Banker pony fastened with a rope
halter, to which was attached a card
bearing this inscription:
"Swapped for a better," and left
: for General Terry with the compli-
: menu of O'Neil, Scout, C. 8. A.
It is needless to say that although
Gen. Terry offered a thousand doN
ars reward for O'Neal, he never saw
either man or beast again.
For many years Mr. B. F. Thomp
son, of Des Moines, Iowa, was se
verely afflicted with chronic diar
rhoea. He says: "At times it was
very severe ; so much so, that I fear
ed it would end my life. About sev
en years ago I chanced to procure a
bottle of Chamberlain's ixmc, uioi-
era and Diarrhoea Remedy. It gave
me prompt relief, and I believe cur
ed me permanently, as I now eat or
drink without harm anything I
please." I have also used it in ray
family with the best results. For

The Arlington Times says that the
argest tree In Snohobish County,
Cat., probably is a cedar which stands
a little way from the Kent's prairie
and Stanwood road, about six miles
from Arlington. A party of nine
went down from that place lately to
satisfy themselves of the truth of
what by them were regarded as ex
aggerated reports of its size. The
measurement taken shows it to be 63
feet, being nearly 23 feet in diameter.
If measured around the roots and
knotty protuberances the tree would
likely measure 99 feet. The measure
ment was as close to the body of the
tree as the line could be drawn.
About, 75 feet from the ground the
tree forks into four immense branch
es. Just below the lories is a big
knothole, and five of the party Jack
Howard, J. F. Shannon, A. Eng
berg, Balph Morris, and Harry Pat
tersonclimbed up and made an ex
ploration of the inside of the tree,
which is a mere shell, though still
green. They went down some 40
feet in the tree, and claim that there
is standing room for at least 40 men
there. A peculiar feature which they
noticed was that the tree is barked on
the inside the same as on the outside.

composed of a worsted warp made

are deceptive. The fabric is of a class
known as a filling cord stripe, having
a slight mixture of silk twist be

three-eights and delaine stock, yet
every alternate pick of filling is cot

In suggceting a new theory of the sun's
light and heat to the members of Um Bos
ton Scientific Society, Mr. George Smith
recently showed scientifio reasons why a
fat man should suffer mora than a lean
one in summer.
The new theory, briefly put, is this:
Gravity is an ethereal force continually
streaming from space through every solar
and celestial body. - If the body is not
movable with relation to some larger
body, this force of gravity becomes that
form of molecular motion,which we call
As gravity depends upon the mass of a
body, and heat is, according to Mr.
Smith's theory, in one sense gravity, it
followa that the larger a body is the
hotter. Hence the fat man's discomfort.
