Elsewhere we reproduce from

an article concerning the proposed
building of an interurban railroad

means. The building of such a line
will not only prove a splendid
feeder to the growing City on the
Bluff, but it will also be of great
benefit and convenience to the
public living along the route. In
addition to furnishing rapid transit,
it will enhance the value of proper
ty, stimulate new industries, create
a ready market for all farm products
and be of advantage in numerous
ways. The movement should meet
with every encouragement ana we
sincerely hope it will succeed.

The Hermitage at St. Louis.
To the People of Ilardemau
County The legislature appropria
ted $40,000 at its last session to
exhibits of Tennessee at the Worlds
Fair in St. Louis in 1904, but this
appropriation was so fixed that it
could not be used for a building in
which to place these exhibits. Pa
triotic citizens of the state have
started a subscription to reproduce
the Hermitage as a state building,
and they have effected an organiza
tion by the name of the Tennessee
Worlds Fair Association, for the
purpose of organizing the people all
over the state to raise an additional
$40,000 for reproducing the Her
mitage. West Tennessee will be
expected to raise $15,000 of 'this
amount. I have been appointed
County Commissioner of this coun
ty and my duty is to appoint com
mitteemen for each town to solicit
funds for this purpose. I can't do
anything without the aid of the
people of the county, and I feel
sure they will respond liberally to
this cause. Andrew Jackson is in
history the greatest son of Tennes
see, and his home, the Hermitage,
the most beautiful of old Southern
residences. Its reproduction will
be an ornament to the Exposition
and an honor to Tennessee. Res
pond liberally by your contribu
tions when the working committee
calls on you. Don't let every other
county in the state excel this.

WITH LEE IN VIRGINIA.
Reminiscenced of the campaign of 1864-5 of Gen.
R. E. Lee's army as remembered by the under
It is well enough to state in the
first place, that the army returned
from the Pennsy lvaniacampaign
greatly reduced in number, worn
out with fatigue, greitly discourag
ed, hungry and in rags. Notwith
standing all of this, the morale of
Gen. Lee's army was not impaired,
neither was their confidence in
their brave leader diminished.
The condition of the
such that no
was attempted. The great problem
then was. to get supplies for the ar
my, as all our ports were blockaded
except Wilmington, N. C.
During the winter of 18G4, Gen.
Lee's headquarters were in a plaiu
army tent, on a hill side near Or
ange Courthouse, Va , where he
shared all the privations of his men.
In the meauwhile the entire milita
ry power of the Union was placed
under the control of Gen. Grant.
So absolute was his authority that
Mr. Lincoln, president of the Unit
ed States, wrote him on April 30,

It would have been well .for the
hopes of the Confederacy, had sim
ilar power been given to Gen. Lee.
Lee now commauds about 60,000
men all told, and they are very
poorly equipped in every particu
lar for the great campaigu which is
about to open, except their devo
tion to their cause and the implicit
confidence they place in their lead
er. On the othe' hand, Gen. Grant
crosses the Rappahannock and Rap
idan rivers on the 5th of May,
18G4, commanding 1 IS, 000 men,
well fed", well clothed, and in fact
fully equipped in every particular,
with recruits coming in almost
daily. Some oue has said that this
was the grandest army that the sun
ever shone upon. On the south
side of the Rappahannock is a great
scope of timber land known as the
"Wilderness." In the onward
march to Richmond, the massy
columns of this great army, and all
the commissary and quartermaster
luggage, had to cross this great
wilderness. 1 imagine they had
thoughts like the Israelites had
when they crossed the Red Sea.
While this gallaut army was wend
iug its way through the tanglewood,
ever on the watch to keep from
soiling or tearing their gay dress,
they were terror-stricken by the
same old rebel yell, which bursted
so suddenly upon Hooker's lines
the year before. The air seemed
to be filled with noise and smoke
even the rabbits and birds in their
flight fled before the rebel lines.
With rebels in front, rebels ou the
right flank and the entire woods
seeming to be full of them, Gen
Grant concluded that there was too
much of it that he had taken the
wrong road that Richmond must
be in some other direction. So he
made a gigantic sweep to the left,
hoping thereby to get between Gen.
Lee and Richmond at Spottsylva
nia Courthouse. But before he
reached that point, the gray rifle
men of the ever-watchful Lee were
in his path, pouring their leaden
hail into the very faces of his ad
vauce guards. Day after day the
intrepid army of the Union made
continued assaults upon our thin
and ragged lines. Sometimes our
ranks were broken by overpowering
numbers, but we would rally around
our brave leader, form a new line
and go for them again. Talk about
this battle and that battle, why we
were fighting every day. Almost
every field was a battle field, and
on every hill was planted a battery,
belching forth in thunderous tones
their deadly shot and shell.
In my next,. I will tell you about
the battle of Spottsylvania Court
house. J. M. Morgan,

Oa Thursday morning, Oct. 15th,
at 4 o'clock, the messenger of death
visited the home of our friend and
brother, W. C. Fulghum, plucking
from it a premature rose the head
of the family he upon whom the
family leaned for support leaving
a wife and five small children, be
sides a large number of friends to
mourn his loss.
Brother Fulghum was born in
Hardeman County, on the 27th day
of .November, 186V. He professed
faith in Christ in the year 1885, and
joined the Baptist Church at
Crainesville the same year iu which
he gave his soul to God. He lived
a consistent christian, expressed his
hope of immortality more than once
during his illness, and died in the
triumph of a living faith. We sin
cerely hope as well as believe that
he is now at rest in heaven.
As for his bereaved family, may
the Lord comfort and bless them,
and may they and all his friends
make haste and prepare to meet
him, where parting shall be no
more, where the wicked cease
from troubling and the weary are at
rest. J. G. Goocu.
Bethel Springs, Oct, 20, 1903.
In loving remembrance of our
gracd father, T. P. Pulliam, born
October 16, 1822, died Sept. 25,
1903, at 6 30 p.m , at his home
near Hickory Valley, Tenn.
His health for the past two years
had been very feeble, yet he only
kept his bed for a month from the
time he was takeu ill until his
lie was married in- 1857 to Mrs.
M. J. Ilinson, who preceded him
about thirteen years. To them
were born nine children, five of
whom are left to mourn bis loss.
He was a faithful christian and
had been a member of Brick Church
for years past. And he was such a
good and faithful father and grand
father, that we certainly miss him,
but we know that he is at rest in
our ''beautiful home prepared for
us by our loving Father," who has
promised to be a father to the fath
erless. We know that he is wait
ing with our dear grand mother to
welcome us across that beautiful
river to all our loved ones who
have gone before. For the sorrow
stricken children and the grand
children our Father in calling to
you says: "Beloved, think it not
strange concerning the fiery trials
which are to try you, as though
some strange thiugs happened unto
you." In the dark hours we must
walk by faith. If we place our
hand in His, He will guide us safe
ly to the other shore and then we
will shake hands with other beloved
ones, who have washed their robes
in the blood of the Lamb, to reign
with Christ forever and ever.
Oh, this is blest relief !
My fainting heart it cheers;
It cools my burning grief,
And sweetens all my tears.
These eyes ehall see our darling
grand father theu,
Nor shed a parting tear again.
