One of the workers of the world,
Living, toiled, and, toiling, died.
But others worked, and the world went on
And was not changed when ho was gone.
A strong arm stricken, a wide soil furled,
And only a few men sighed.
One of the heron of the world
Fought to conquer, then fought to full
And fell down bluin in his tilood stained rcalL
And over his form they atept.
His cause was lost and his bar.ner furled,
And only a woman wept.
One of the singers among mankind
Sang henlin; songs from an o'erwrought
But ero men listened the grass and wind
Were wasting tho rest uiitung like a wave,
And now of his fame that will ne'er depart
Be haa never heard in his grave.
One of the women who only lovo
Loved and grieved and faded away.
Ah, me, are these gone to the Uod above?
What more of each can 1 say?
They are human flowers that flower and fall.
This is the song and the end of them all.

f;eneral merchandise in tho Craig
louse, and is ready to nerve all cus
tomers. He will move to the Hughes

Mrs. Thomas is now entertaining the

Mrs. Evins and It. A. Wilkes are re

moved to the .ion neighborhood. We
regret to give these good people up.
The following testimony of love and
respect was drawn up by olllcial mem
bers of tho Presbyterian church :
"Presbyterian church at Culleoka,
Maurv Co., Tenn., Dec. 23rd, 1S97;
Elders present, George Williamson,
James Smiser and John Wilson, Sr.
"Being desirous to give expression of
our regret at parting with Mr. Frierson ,
our beloved pastor, who has been with
us during the past eleven years, during
VMph time he has made many friends
and no enemies, we write this memento
as a testimony of our regards. He has
at all times been a faithful and an
earnest worker in his Master's vine
yard, as gentle and kind as a woman,
but firm and positive in the dischargeof
his ministerial duties.
"As a neighbor, friend and pastor, no
was ever ready to respond to the call
of duty or the cries of the needy or dis
tressed. ,, , .
"It will bedirn"ult for us to nil his
place.' With much sorrow and deep re
gret, we, in the evolution of events
(over which we had no control), are
called upon to sever these ties, thus
welded by so many years of brotherly
union. , ' ...
"Mrs. Frierson has been a true neip
mete in this good work. She has been
a kind and eftcient teacher in our Sunday-school,
winning many friends
anionic thoee with, whom she was
brought in contact. She chose and
acted well her part, and it will not be
taken from her.
"We parrwith them in regret and
affectionately recommend them to any
community or organisation they may
be dt'iroua of attaching themselves.

Terry, Jan. 10. One of the most en
Joyable lectures ever listened to by the
people of our little village was given in
the Methodist church Sunday night by
Miss Lena May f rev, of Canton, Ohio,
She was for several years a missionary
to China, and her lecture was made
doubly interesting on account of her
having lived among tho people. Her
descriptions of their life, mode of liv
ing, and at last their steadfastness
when once converted to the christian
faith, were beautifully portrayed, and
listened to bv an attentive and aimrecia
tivo audience. Making christians of
the Chinese, it is said. 1s like carving an
imajre out of stone. When the work is
finished it is lasting. Quite a contras
to our own people, who live all of thei
lives under the sound of the gospel,
o wish all who are opposed to "ror
ciiru Missions" could have heard thi
lecture. Surely their prejudice would
have beeil short lived. Miss Frey came

A knoll In a meadow, a bit of forest, a
stono wall, a creek meandering through
the fields and across a highway to empty
its waters Into u river two or three miles
awny nil theso nro points which limy
bring victory or defeat when 100,000 men
grapplo in a struggle. The guns rush for
the hills nnd knolls when they go into ac
tion; tho cavalry must havo a clear sweep
of tho fields if they are to break lines of
infantry; tho marching battle lines are
broken and thrown into confusion by a
ditch across which a farmer's boy oould
spring with euse.
A milo and a half above our right wing
la a simple wooden bridge; spanning the
creek to connect tho highway. Abovo and
below tho bridge nro steep bunks, over
grown with bushes. A farmer or hunter
would plungo downward through tho
bushes, bound over tho bubbling waters
without effort and bo at tho top of the
other bank in a moment. Jsot so with tho
battlo line. It halts, wavers and marches
by tho right or left flank to find another
rosslng abovo or below. Tho guns change
position at a dead run; tho cavalry trot or
gallop; tho infantry movo slowly and
grudgingly and wnsto precious timo. A
battle is won or lost because a single bri
giulo loses a quarter of an hour in reach
ing tho position assigned to it. A division
is turned asido by a wall, a regiment by
a rull fence. Theso ueo tho orders to the
captain of Company F:
'You will march your company to the
bridge and take up such position as you
think best to prevent tho army from cross
ing. If attacked by a hundred men, hold
it; if attacked by a thousand, do not full
back. If the enemy forces tho bridge, ho
will tako our right wing and flunk, you
"I understand," replies tho captain.
am to hold tho bridge to tho last."
"To tho last."
Company F marched away by the right
faco and was soon lust to sight in tho
woods. In an hour it was throwing up
an earthwork at tho north end of tho
bridge. It was a slmplo ridgo of earth, ex
tending east and west across the highway
and into tho fields for n distance of 1U0
feet, with its center thicker and stronger
than Its wings. When that was finished,
the men pulled down small trees and up
rooted bushes, clogged the highway to tho
south of tho bridge and heaped obstruc
tions on tho bridgo itself. For two hours
they worked liko farmers, each man
straightening up now and then to flirt tho
sweae from his temples, and they then
took up their muskets and were ready.
Did you ever try to imagine tho sounds
created by a great body of troops a di
vision or a corps moving forward to bat
tle? You hear a faraway neighing of
horses, a rumbling of wheels, tho blow
ing cf bugles and tho ruttlo of drums.
All tho vurious sounds go to make up one
general, awesome sound, as if you could
sco through tho forests and over the hills
and knew that a great tidal wave was
sweeping toward you from the shores of
tho sea. Tho sounds come nearer and
nearer, and you seem to feel tho tramp of
tbo thousands of feet. You hear a mighty
muttering, r.s of men scolding at each
other. Your ear catches fragments which
speak of menace and peril and muko you
look behind to see if tho roud is clear for
flight. It is tho march of the specter of
death, and its fleshlcss bones ruttlo as it
tramps forward over tbo highways to an
other feast of blood.
" There they come I Steady now !"
Tho enemy should havo sent a forco for
ward to seize tho bridgo three hours ago,
but of the hundred details of a battle some
are overlooked or some one blunders. In
frontof tho division marching at will over
tho dusty roud is an advance gunrd to
clear the way; in front of tho advaneo a
few cavalrymen. The latter aro first to
make the turn of tho highway and note
tho obstructions and tho earthwork at the
north cud. They smilo in derision. In
front of them are 100 men ; behind them
live brigades. Thero will be a rush down
tho narrow road with its walls of cl; -,
over tno Dnugo, over ino earthwork, a
6core of dead and wounded friends and
foes, and tho specter of death will hardly
havo been halted on its inarch.
"See and hear 'em, Tom?" queries an
old veteran of his right hand man as ho
poors over the top of tho earthwork.
"Aye, Ben!" is tho answer.
"A division at least."
"And what aro we goin to do?"
"Diohere, cf course! Didn't the cap
tain say wo wero to bold, tho bridgo to tho
"But, d n it, it ain't a fuir show,"
protested Den. "Wbus llghtln CO to
and expectin to come out cn top?"
".Nobody. We aro comiu out in tho
trenches with two feet of earth to cover us
up. Feel shaky, old man?"
"Sum, but it ain't a fair show."
" Better save yer breath. Wo ain't look
in for fair shows jest now. Lordy, but
what a chance to swlpo it to 'cm! They
aro form in up around tho bend, auj we'll
hev it redhot in about a mlnlt!"
Arouud the bend of tho road 200 Infan
try formed up in lines eight abreast. Tbo
width of the road allowed for no more.
With bayonets Used and muskets at the
trail they waited for a minute and then
niado a dash. From tho center of tho
earthwork leaped a sheet of flume a third
of the way across the bridge from tho
right and left other sheets of flume. Every
musket hud a rest on top of the earthwork
every sight covered a human target.
Tho head of the advancing column did no
reach tho planks of the bridge. It melteu
away in the midst of tho obstructions, to
crcato other obstructions, und 40 men lay
dead and wounded as the siuoko luzily
drifted away down tho stream.
"Purty fair fur vi but time we was at it,"
said Ben as he rose up for a look after re
loading. "We ought to got at least 20 more at
eich clus shootin," growled Tom in reply.
"They'll como ng'in, of course?"
"Don't be a d d fool, Ben. D'ye think
the loss of 40 or 50 men would stop one of
our divisions from gittin somewhars? If
you feel tired and sleepy, you'd better ask
fur leave to go to tho rear."
"Say, I don't want too much of ycr
chin, old man 1"
"Oh, you don't! Waal, you jest 'tend to
llghtln and dyin and don't worry about
my chin. Better shot yer eyes this timo
and see if you can't damage some of 'em."
Hint dash was a feeler to develop the
strength defending the bridgo and to see
if it was mined for blowing up. Around
the bend of the road they laughed at the
idea of 100 men holding a division at bay.
t uither back tno soldiers fretted and
fumed and officers cursed and swore at tho
delay. Down on the left tho battle was
already opening, and Death was sharpen
ing his scythe on the stono walls which
men of peace had built up 50 years before.
"Uet ready! Fire at will!"
This time a column of 500 men, formed
eight abreast r.s before, dashed at tho
bridgo with ringing cheers, and though
tho first four or live ranks went down oth
ers lived to reach the earthwork and to
mako n fierce fight for its possession. For
ten minutes there wero shot and shout and
curse and groan, and then tho bridgo was
clear again clear of all but tho dead and
wounded. Tho veteran Ben was ono of
tho half dozen who started to cheer as the
enemy sullenly fell back, but Tom inter
rupted him with :
"What yer makin a cussed fool of ycr
"Wo'vo llckod 'em ag'in!"
"Licked hell! If this war don't end in
less'n thrco mouths, ye won't know
'miff to pound snndl Tho idea of yer
yaw pin and whoopln over a victory when
wo'vo lost at least 20 men and when we
aro sartin to bo wiped out body and butes!
Look along the lines!"
Ben looked up and down the lines nnd
shivered as he noted the dead and wound
ed who had fallen out. And now the ene
my deployed a forco to tho right, another
to tho left, ai I tho mon crept forward to
tho very brink of tho ravino nnd opened
such a hot fire that no. defender of the
earthwork could lift his head. Undercover
of this lire a forco formed up in the road
for a dash across tho bridgo. The captain
sent an order along tbo earthwork, aud
each crouching mun made ready to riso
up and lire when the critical moment
"Say, this is gettln to bo redhot!" ex
claimed Ben as the bullets sent tho dirt
flying over his head.
"Wuul, wo don't need any lco joEtnowl"
grimly replied Tom.
"Wo aro goin to git licked on this deal,

Hen did not answer. Just then came
tho order to fire at will, and as the mus
kets looked over tho earthwork tho enemy
cheered and dashed for tho bridgo a third
timo. Over tho rocks and bushes obstruct'
ing the road, over tho wounded, crying
out, over the dead and over the blood
spots, and ogain they reached tho earth
work und fought hand to hand.
"Guess they'll stay licked this time,"
growled Ben as tho enemy fell back after
ten minutes' fighting.
"Oh, ye do! sneered Tom as bo jabbed
his bayonet into the earthwork to clear it
of tho blood. "Waal, of all tho blamed

Now tho enemy, maddened by the delay
and resistance, crossed men qbove and bo
