equestrian statute by Buckstuhl in
tho capitol grounds in Columbia is
said to bo the most perfect specimen
of a horse tn thc world, tush toned as
it is from the b?a] points of Arabia,
Kentucky and ndian thoroughbreds.
But the Grandest, part of that statute
is the way that the figure of Hampton
bestrides the mount. His was a fig
ure to lead in the great cavalrycbarg
?s in which he tock his men ?ato tho

Tho appeal was heard by Circuit
Court Judged Kohlanat. Baker and
