THE 'BOCK ' ISTND JRQXfSi WEDNESDAY, MAX 29, 1889.
THE KENTUCKY BROTHERS.
Am Incident of the Clrtl War The Tjp
- The pleasant community about Hopkwt
vftla waa "all tore up," aa the people said.
They really said "too' op," but tbia la a true
ketch and not a disject story.
Host of the people spoke of their state aa
"KaJntocky," and it was "all tor up" too. In
deed Hopkinsrilleand vicinity wosonly a type
of nearly all others in the state, for war had
come almost with the suddenness of lightning
from a clear sky, and the people's sympa
thies were sadly divided. Old residents of
the state can now afford to indulge a smile
at recollection of the childlike confidence
with which tho people bad gone through that
dark and ominous winter; they were, with
exceptions of course, as positive that Critten
den would get a compromise adopted and the
trouble pass without a fight as the average
small boy is that his "pap will fix thing
right. " So when the slow moving mail of
those days brought the news that Sumter had
been captured and 75,000 troops were called
for, there was a commotion such as that
region had not known since the last "Injuns"
were chased across the Tonncssoa.
As acid and alkali fall apart wbon the chemi
cal reagent Is applied, so the people fell at
once into hostile groups. There wasa brief at
tempt at neutrality, then a final division,
and oh, how painful the son in the ranks of
the Confederacy while the father adhered to
In the Barrett family there was even more
than the usual painful commotion. Jim, the
big, dashing, chivalrous older brothor, "sym
pathized with the south the father, trained
in the school of Htairy Clay and conservative
by adhered to the old flag, while the
women grieving, loving, but ardent in their
feelings tried to feel that the father was
right, but secretly all the warmth of their
souls was excited for the one who "went
south." Such family conflicts did not last
long. There was one painful, protracted in
terview, after it a few exchanges of short,
sharp phrases, ending with hot denunciation
by the father, and then Jim was gone, and
with him as many of the irresolute neighbor
boys as be could influence. A few days later
he and his squad were enrolled in the cavalry
of the "C 8. A."
"Thank Ood, Frank is too young to be in
it, and it will all be over before he is big
enough," said the fond mother. But she
knew Frank as little as the average mother
usually knows a son who Is away from home
for a year at the eventful age of sixteen. A
student In the famed Asbury (now De Pauw)
university, Frank had been absorbing all
the atmosphere of his environment, as Her
bert Spencer would say, "all the abolition
plzen in Indiany," some of his old neighbors
would say. The events of April and May,
1SCL, sot bis soul on fire; he was wildly, en
thusiastically eager to fight for the Union.
Like many thousand boys of that age at that
particular time he was sorry it would all be
over before he was old enough to enlist
They all had a chance; most men had a
chance before it ended, though the seal of
many was mod tiled towards the last Frank
reluctantly promised his mother to stay in
oouege, Dut in mid-summer his home was in
the Confederate lines and all such promises
were held to be void. Before frost fell he was
with Shackolford and Bristow, learning the
unites or a private soldier in tne graad ejstny
for the Union.
Three years and a half had passed since
gun Barrett maao tils choice, and the dread-
rul days of Franklin and Nashville had come.
The Confederacy was making Its last ad
vance, and a desperate one it was. The sun
was going down on the first of those murder
ous battles in Hood's advance, and the dis
patch had already gone north: "The Union
lines are broken." The sadly thinned ranks
of Frank Barrett's regiment were among the
last to leave the field a little too lata, as the
lOnreaerate cavalry came galloping over and
through them. Then, for a brief minute or
two, it was man to man; the pistol of the one
was empty and so was the gun of the other;
it was bayonet against saber.
TH MECTCNO OF THE BROTnzUS.
Frank was ridden down by a tall cavalry
man in gray. He Jumped for his life to reach
the left of the rider the sweep of the long
old fashioned sword was not so apt to reach
him there. As he jumped he gave the horse a
sharp wound in the brist, for that was half
the battle. The frantic animal dreaded the
bayonet more than his rider's spur. Off for
an instant, then, goaded savagely, he rame
on; the saber was raised for a swopping blow,
the bayonet for a parry thrust; the last light
of day flashed upon the rider's face.
"My Ood, itisJiin!"
And the bayonet was drawn back. But It
was too lute for the rider to arrest his arm,
even bad he known, as ho did not the boy of
10 changes much more rapidly in three years
than the man of 20.
Cr-a-s-s-hl The noint of the heavv aohnr
crushed through the infantry cap and into the
skull. At the same instant the bullet of an
other Federal entered under the sword arm,
and the brothers sank lifeless into a heap to
gether, soon to bp drenched In common blood.
No, not quite lifeless. They lingered weary
months in the same 'hospital, renewed the
feelings of happier days while languishing on
adjacent cots, and in early May, 1S05, when
all was over, two war worn veterans together
sought the old Barrett farm house the one
to be richly paid, handsomely pensioned and
held in yearly increasing honor among the
victors; the other with only wounds and
glory for his pay. It is the old, old story of
the survivors of civil war.
In the cemetery of the now flourishing
city of Hopkinsville stands an imposing
marble shaft in honor of the Confederate
dead who lie there. Federal and Confeder
ate soldiers Joined in tho dedication of it;
men of all political parties contributed to its
erection, and ministers of all denominations
blessed the work for all the bitterness of
the past la gone, and over all the land is a
deep and abiding peace. In the old neigh
borhood live two steady going farmers, fa
miliarly known aa "the Barretts," who
are Uncle Frank and Uncle James to two
families of young people. Little ones gather
about them as they sit by tho hearth on win
ter evenings and ask them to "tell a story
about the war;" they, and all their fellows,
talk of it with all the freedom that English
men would ue in speaking.of the Wars of
the Roses, and with not a thounandth part of
the tuttornena Irishmen feul ovor the rout at
OF SOUTHERN ORIGIN.

. oration lay, 1870.
When the war was over. In the south,
where, under warmer skies and with more
poetic temperament, symbols and emblems
are better understood than in the practical
north, the widows, mothers and children of
the Confederate dead went out and strewed
their graves with flowers, and at many places
tbe women scattered them imurtiully also
over tbe unknown and uuninrked resting
places of the Union soldiers. As the news of
this touching tribute flashed over the north
It roused, as nothing ehw could have done,
national amity and love and allayed sectional
animosity and passion. It thrilled every
household. where there was a vacant chair by
tbe fireside and an aching void la the heart
for a lost hero whose remains had never been
found, old wounds broke out afresh, and in a
mingled tempest of gr"f 1nd joy tbe family
cried, "May be- it was our darling." Thus
out of sorrows common aliko to the north
nd south came this Ixwiutiful custom. But
Decoration day no louger belongs to those
who mourn. It la the common privilege of
us all, and will be celebrated as long aa grat
itude exists and flowers bloom.

Our regiment (Twenty-fifth Indiana) hav
ing re-enlisted after enjoying their veteran
furlough at home, were ordered to Decatur,
Ala., where we were joined by the detach
ment of hoys who did not re-enlist, and who
are distinguished from the veterans by the
name of "rounders. " Soon after one of the
men was brought before the colonel for some
misdemeanor. The colonel, who, by the way,
is noted for his ready means of disposing of
such oiTouders, asked him if ho was a rounder.
The offender answered in the negative.
"Then," said the colonel, "I will moke you
one. Just walk round that stump about two
hours." Told at a camp tire by an unknown.

Chicago, tbe banner commandery of the
state, proposes celebrating Ascension
Day tomorrow. The Chicago Timet
A very beautiful ceremonial service
will be that celebrated at Grace Episco
pal church next Thursday evening.
Thursday is Ascension Day and it is cus
tomary for tbe ancient and honorable or
der of Knights Templars to recognize the
festivals of bt. John and Ascension Day
With peculiar honors. Apollo Command
ery. No. 1. invites all commanderies to
attend the special service given under its
auspices and direction at Grace church,
and agreeably to this invitation the Chi
cago, St. Bernard, Chevalier Bayard.and
Englewood commanderies will attend,
making a turnout of uniformed Knights
of fully COO in line.
The religious service will consist of the
regular office of evening prayer and tbe
uev. Lr. Clinton Locke, past grand pre
late of tbe United States, will preach on
tbe occasion. The musical setting of
the service will be exceedingly elaborate
ana Deautuul. It has been arranged for
the occasion by Sir Knigbt Henry B.
Honey, musical director of Grace church.
The service committee appointed by
eminent Commander DevVut C. Cregier
consists of Sir Knights Lawrence A.
Spicer, W. W. Ramsay, and John

"Angels Ever Bright and Fair" by the
boy soprano, Blatcbtford Kavanaugh.
All the details of the celebration will be
carried out with great care and the occa
sion will be signalized by probably the
most impressive and beautiful ceremonial
service ever given in the west.
Clear the Way
Without loss of time when tbe intestinal
canal is blocked up by reason of consti
pation, chronic or temporary. It should
be borne in mind that this ailment is
prone to become lasting and obstinate,
and breed other and worse complaints.
Hostetter's Stomach Bitters is the precise
remedy to remove tbe obstruction effeci
tually, but without drenching or weaken
ing the blockaded bowels, a consequence
always to be apprehended from tbe use
of violent laxatives, which are among the
most pernicious of the cheap nostrums
swallowed by tbe credulous and misin
formed. The fiat of experience, and of
the medical fraternity, sanction the claim,
of this standard aperient. Not only as a
source of relief and permanent regularity
to tbe bowels, liver and stomach, but as
a means of remedying and preventing
kidney and bladder troubles, and fever
and ague, it is without a peer.
Tbe usual treatment of catarrh is very
unsatisfactory, as thousands of despair
ing patients can testify. On this point
a trustworthy medical writer says:
"Proper local treatment is positively nec
cessary to success, but many, if not most
of tbe remedies in general use by physi
cians afford but temporary benefit. A
cure cannot certainly be expected from
snuffs, powders, douches and washes."
