The government has shown deserved
recognition of, and proper sympathy for
an old soldier of this congressional dis-
trict through the efforts of Congressman
BenT. Cable. "Probably tbe most of
the people in and around Busbnell do not
know that it was through the influence of
Hon. B. T. Cable that Alfred Markham
finally got his tension increased, and back
pay allowed for total blindness, but each
is the case." says the McDonough Demo
crat. 0. C Hicks works through con
gressmen in his pension business, and has
bad Mr. MarVbam's case on hsnd for a
long lime. He saw Mr. Cable in Bush-
nell last summer, and spoke to him about
this case. Mr. Cable told him to write
him when be got to Washington and he
would look into the matter. Tbis Mr.
Hicks did, and in less than SO ('ays the
long delayed voucher was in the bands of
Mr. Markbam. Residents of this con
gressional district who have busines- with
tbe government will always find a ready
and willing helper in the person of our
congressman, Ben T. Cable."

friends who will wish the happy couple
joy and prosperity. The groom is an
enterprising young business man of Des
