Last week the daily papors gave an account of an individual going under the name of Albort D. Cashier, who had served in the civil war and whoso identity as to sex had but recently been discovered. Local interest attuches to the story for tho reason that this indivi dual, who now turns out to be a woman, served in the same company with Capt. Ja8. S. Robbins, of Wallace, during tho war, nnd was as well known to Captains Robbins as any other member of tho company.

There was nothing in her actions to indicate that she was a woman, other than that she insisted on "messing" alone, but as many soldiers demanded this privilege, no attention was paid to it. She was mustered out in 18G5, and a fow years later was placed on tho pen sion rolls of the government. She is now a demented inmata of the soldiers' homo at Quincy, III.
