The campaigns in the South in
the days of the Revolution were of
no less moment than those of. the
Jerseys, New York, and Pennsyl
vania. After Gates had allowed
himself to be defeated at Camden,
General Nathaniel Greene was "plac
ed in command of the patriot army
in the South. It was in this sec
tion that defeat did as muGh for the
cause of the colonists as victory.
The battle of King's Mountain,
epoch making a3 it was, pared the'
way for other reverses to tue Brit-
ish arms. One of them, while nom
inally a defeat for. the Americans,
was the battle of Guilford Court
house, North Carolina, one of the
hardest fought contests of the whole
Cornwallis was hurrying after
Greene across the State. He cross
ed the Yadkin and strained every
nerve to prevent Greene from cross
ing the Dan. He supposed the
Americans would not be able to
cross at the lower ferries, but would
be obliged to pass the river higher
up, wnere it couia be loraea. lie
therefore urged his army to its ut
most exertions to secure these fords
before the arrivals of the Americans.
Perceiving Cornwallis' error, Colo
nel Otho II. Williams retreated to
wards the upper fords, and so con
firmed the British commander in his
delusion. Having led the British
sufficiently out of the way, Williams
wheeled about, and by a rapid
march of forty miles in twenty-four
hours, down the river, rejoined
Greene, who' had moved with all
6peed to the lower ferries, where, in
anticipation of his retreat, he had
collected a supply "of boats. The
Dan was passed on the 15th of Feb
ruary, and the American army was
safe from its pursuers. An hour or
two later, Cornwallis, who had dis
covered his mistake, and had march
ed with speed from the upper fords,
appeared on the opposite bank of
the river, only to see his adversary
safely beyond his reach.
The river was too deep to be
forded, and Greene had all the boats
in his possession. Cornwallis was
deeply mortified at his failure to in
tercept Greene. He had pursued
him for over 200 miles, and had
made great sacrifices to come up
with him, but the American com
mander had managed to elude him,
and had successfully carried out one
of the most brilliant retreats in his
tory. The Americans regarded
their escape as providential. Their
way across the Caroliuas might be
tracked by the blood from their
feet; and, twice, when the enemy
had come within gunshot of them,
the rising of the waters of the Ca
tawba and Yadkin, which they had
passed in safety, had held back the
British and enabled them to escape.
After resting his men for a few
days on the banks of the Dan, Corn
wallis fell back to Hillsborouhg.
Having received re-enforcements,
General Greene recrcssed the Dan,
about the last of February, and ad
vanced into the Carolinas, to watch
Cornwallis and encourage the patri
ots of that region. Cornwallis, be
ing short of supplies, moved bIow
Iy southward. Greene followed
him cautiously, too weak to risk a
battle, but ready to take advautage
of the first error on the part of his
adversary. His movements were
conducted with the utmost circum
spection, and in order to guard
against surprise he', never remained
in the same place more than one day
and kept secret until the last mo
ment the places he selected for his
encampments. In the meantime,
he " was gradually receiving re-en-forcements,
from Virginia and Ma
ryland, until his army numbered
Feeling himself strong enough to
attack the enemy, Greene left his
baggage at a point of safety, and ad
vanced to Guilford Courthouse,
seventeen miles distant, with the in
tention of bringing Cornwallis to a
decisive engagement. Here he was
attacked by Cornwallis, on the 15th j
of March, 1781, and, after one of j
the hardest-fought battles of the I
war, was compelled to retreat.
Greene withdrew in good order, and
Cornwallis, though victorious on
the field, was so sorely crippled that
he was unable to make any pursuit,
and was obliged to fall back to Wil
mington, near the moath of the
Cape Fear River. By the time he i
reached that place, his army had
been so much weakened by deser-'
tions and losses in battle, that it
amounted to but 1,400 men.

A Visit to the Lilliputian School.
A few days since I paid a visit to
Miss Neely's Kindergarten and saw
the little folks at work and play.
It is really surprising the accurate
knowledge contained in the small
heads, "and interesting to see the
pretty work, made by the pretty fin
gers. Aside from the 'three R's,"
which they did full jn'stice to, they
answered correctly questions on nat
ural history, botany, art and gener
al topics with wonderful quickness.
The handiwork coutained specimens
of weaving, stitching, modeling,
drawing and coloring, forming a
most attractive collection. But per
haps the-most pleasing feature was
to see and hear them in march and
song. First the march and drill,
at which each little soldier carried
a flag, aud perfect step was kept,
and the figuers made in unison to the
bright music played by Mrs. Nee
ly's skillful fingers. Lastly followj
ed songs and games, aud how heart
j tily they were enjoyed by children
as well as audience. It was with
real regret that 1 learned the exer
cises were over and the Lilliputian
school was "out" for the day.
Judging by the continued increase
of pupils to the Kindergarten, Boli
var shows its appreciation of Its ed
ucational advantages. Miss Neely
has proved a most successful instruc
tor and the children within her
charge, rightly consider themselves
privileged to attend her school.
Night Was Her Terror.

of Alexandria, Ind., "and could
hardly get any sleep. I had con
sumption so bad that if I walked a
block I would cough frightfully and
spit blood, but, when all other med
icines failed, three $1.00 bottles of
Dr. King's New Discovery wholly
cured me and I gained 58 pounds."

n iiu man
which caused a valuable .horse much suffering, but
from which permanent injury was avoided by the
timely use of Mexican Mustang Liniment.
La Grange. Tenn., Jin. 6, 1901.
Lyon Manufacturing Co., "
Brooklyn, N. Y.
Dear Sirs : I will say that your Mexican Mustang
Liniment has done a vronderful cure in this part of the
country. I own the stallion known as the " State of Ten
nessee," who has a large patronage both far and near his
service this Spring to date is 102 mares. I was offered
S400.CO when he was two years old. I refused same. Then
some one took him from the stable and commenced with a
wire and wrapped the right leg from the foot up to his hip,
and after standing all night the leg had swollen so large as to
hide the wire, and in five days the leg bursted and the flesh
turned inside out. I spent large sums of money to have him
cured but up to five months ago it was quite a failure, and
then a friend induced me to try a bottle of your liniment. I
used one of the 25-cent bottles because I did not have much
faith in it, but it helped him so much that I bought a second,
third and fourth bottle, which completely cured him. The
reason it took so long to cure is that it had a kind of itching
sensation when it was healing a little, when he would bite it
with his teeth. I put the liniment on the wound with a feath
er and rubbed the swollen parts with my hand.
Mexican Mustang Liniment seemed to take out all the
itching as well as to cause it to heal rapidly, and he showed
no disposition to interfere with it. The one dollar purchase
has been worth hundreds of dollars to me. I keep your
Liniment in my breeding stable all the time, and to those
who have horses I will say it is the best liniment that money
can buy. I will answer all inquiring letters.
Very truly yours,
J. C. WALTON.
