The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Com
pany has closed a deal with Mr. Ignatius
T. Fulks and Mr. George W. Belby which
secures about two acres of valuable real
estate in Frederick avenue, this town. The
price paid, It is understood, was $300 an
acre. Lying adjacent to the present Y
and tracks of the company, it is contem
plated to at once extend the Y so that not
only the engines but the local trains can be
turned. The improvement, it is said, has
been needed a number of years, and will
greatly facilitate travel, as well as con
venience the railroad men in handling the
malls and express.
The little three-year-old child of Mr. and
Mrs. Howard Crawford was accidentally
burned, with fatal results, at their home

Military Riders.
BY Ia d. sale.
It Is fair to presume that every member
of the Army of the Potoznac who has had
the good fortune to see the most excellent
photo-engraving of the proposed equestrian
statue of Major Gen. George B. MeClellan
!n The Sunday Star of January 14 has felt
his eyes moisten Just a little and his heart
pulsate just a trifle quicker.
"Here comes Little Mac!"
Who of those who served under him
has not heard the cry pass along the lines
like an electric flash, whether on the march,
at reVlew or on the firing line? And who
that has seen him gallop swiftly by at the
head of his staff on his stoutly made brown
gelding can ever forget him? "Little Mac!"
To us old gray-headed duffers of 11(06 the
affectionate title bestowed upon him by
Ms men recalls precious memories. The
Army of the Potomac loyally served many
commanders; some of them they liked pass
ing well, but from McDoweM to Qrant not
one of them possessed the affections of their
men as did George Brinton MeClellan. The
testimonial to his service? in the hour of
supreme perH comes late, but the survivors
of the Army of the Potomac, whom he led
from Yorktown to Fair Oaks and from
Fair Oaks to Antietam, are not inclined to
indulge in carping criticism. The present i
Is an era of good feeling, north, south, east
and west. Let no man disturb it.
On Foot and Mounted.
MeClellan on foot and on horseback
seemed to be two different individuals. In
stature about 5 feet 0 inches, but well set
up and well proportioned, he did not im
press one afoot as when mounted. He
seemed to grow in the saddle, and. he al
ways rode at a rapid pace and like a cen
taur. As far as sticking on a horse's back
is concerned, and having a good seat. Grant
had no superior in the army; but he was
not as Imposing mounted as MeClellan. In
addition to having a symmetrical figure,
MoClellan possessed singularly handsome
features, and, whether on foot or mounted,
looked the soldier. I recall a scene which
thousands of others may remember. It was
after he had resumed command of the
army late in the summer of 18(52. We were
well on the way to Frederick before it be
came generally known that MeClellan had
been restored to us. Not a man in the
ranks but was fagged from marching and
fighting, and 1 am sure when the news
came that we were to be led again by Me
Clellan every mother's son stepped with a
lighter heart
Between Hyatt at own and Frederick there
suddenly broke upon our ears from the rear
the shouts of men, which swelled in vol
ume as the minutes passed. Then the bands
struck up a patriotic air, and we knew that
"Little Mac" was coming. As he swept by
in a cloud of dust, with cap in hand, the
air was rent with cheers, caps flew high
and no commander ever received a heartier
welcome. The pathetic scene at parting
after Antietam near Warrenton, Va.. 1 will
not attempt to describe. The men did their
duty to his successors; they were too loyal
to their country and its cause to do other
wise, but, singular as it may seem to some,
MeClellan was never displaced in their af
fections;
Battle of Antietam.
Speaking of Antietam, it was my good
fortune to see the elder Sumner lead his
men on the field at that terrible crisis in
the affairs of MeClellan and the nation,
when Hooker and Mansfield were carried
from the field wounded, the latter mortally.
Affairs were going badly with us. Jackson
still held the confederate left wing in the
west woods, Longrstreet the i-enter was
confederate right wing, while Burnside was
still thundering on our left at the bridge
held by Toombs. Sumner, a man above
medium height, was mounted on a medium
sized sorrel gelding that locmed altogether
too small for a man of his size. He asked
qnestk>ns right and left in a low tone of
voice as to what federal troops were in his
front. The old soldier had seen too much
of war to be rattled at anything. Even
after he had sent Sedgwick's division into
the terrible west woods, where Jackson's
men were lying in waiting for him, and was
compelled to retire with frightful lo?s. the
''Old Bull of the Woods" never lost his
composure; but he probably thought in
fourteen languages.
About sundown, after Pope had retired
with his army to Centervllle. 1 dismounted
near the point where the little River turn
pike and the road to Centervllle fork. Soon
there reined up a few feet near me a sol
dierly looking man on a spirited iron gray
horse of about fifteen and a half hands.
The horse was very restless, and I noticed
that his rider carried the reins of the bridle
on the stump of one of his arms, with
which he easily controlled him. This was
Gen. Philip Kearny, then the ideal Amer
ican sabreur, renowned for his feats
against the savages of the far w.est, and a
veteran of the Mexican war, in which he
lost his arm. Two hours later there was a
desperate fight near Chantilly in a fierce
rainstorm. The next forenoon, while riding
through the main street of Fairfax Court
House, I passed an ambulance with a heavy
escort of cavalry. One of the curtains of
the vehicle flapped as I passed and I saw
the deathly white hand of a man. On mak
ing inquiry I was told that the body of the
man was that of Kearny. As I had not
heard of his death I asked again of an
other cavalryman the same question and
was told that the body was Stevens. Both
generals were killed the same evening and
their remains were being escorted to Wash
ington.
Pope and McDowell.
I saw Pope and McDowell ride side by
side on to the bloody battlefield of Cedar
Mountain, eleven miles southwest of Cul
peper, after Banks had been defeated by
Jackson. They were mounted on handsome
bay geldings and each were imposing-look
ing men to my youthful eyes. Banks, with
his lithe and erect figure and handsome
face, looked well on a horse, and like Me
Clellan, when mounted looked to be a mucn
larger man than he really was. He was a
fine horseman. Hooker was not only the
handsomest man, but the most imposing
figure on horseback, barring Hancock, in
the Army of the Potomac. He had a pink
and white complexion, and large and hand
some gray eyes. He was heavy and tall,
upward of six feet. If he was not a great
commander he was a good soldier, and
looked the part. While at the head of the
army he rode a milk-white stallion, which
tradition says was stolen in Prince George
county in the vicinity of Oxen Hill. A
negro betrayed his place of concealment,
which was in some bushes on his owner's
farm. Much ado was made about this stal
lion, as he was valuable and of pure Ara
bian blood. As his owner was a Union man
Secretary StanTon took hold of the matter,
but through some hocus pocus the horse
was secretly shipped to New York and got
Into the hands of George Wilkes, the sfldH
Ing editor, and by him presented to Hooker.
President Lincoln at Be view.
Few people now living have seen Presi
dent Lincoln on horseback. I saw him but
once. It was In the winter of 1883, a short
period previous to Hooker's advance on
Lee's l^ft flank at Chancellorsvllle, which
he turned, and Mr. Lincoln was present at
? review of the army on the plains of Staf
ford Court House. It was a great event Jn
army annals because upward of 75,000 vet
erans passed in review before the Presi
dent thousands of whom closed their eyes
forever a brief period later. In making an
Inspection of the lines Mr. Lincoln rode, of
course, by Hooker's sfde. He wore the then
fashionable bell-shaped beaver and rode a
horse that looked ponylike, the President
was so tattr As a matter of fact his feet
barely escaped the tneQuallties of the
ground. Ride as hard as Hooker did the

President never lost an Inch, and I have
never seen a man with a better seat In the
saddle than Mr. Lincoln, although I have
seen more graceful figures on horseback.
Mr. Lincoln had ridden the Illinois circuit
for years before he was elected President,
and naturally knew how to ride. A feature
of Mr. Lincoln's presence, which excited
the mirth and wonderment of the soldiers,
was how he managed to keep the big hat in
place, as It was perched on the back of his
h?d
The horse McClellan rode while with the
Army of the Potomac was much unlike the
steed on which Artist McMonnles has
placed him. He was the synonym of
strength anil endurance. Strong in the
quarters, full In the barrel, well ribbed up
and strong boned, he was fitted for the
arduous duties of a war charger, and not
specially adapted for parade. The late Gen.
Henry V. Boynton Is authority for the
statement that the artist who modeled the
horse on which Gen. George H. Thomas is
mounted took for his subject the animal
the general rode In his last campaigns. No
horseman can And fault with Mr. McMon
nles' animal, for It is certainly a magnifi
cent specimen of the equine species. As
regards the criticism of the covering of the
head of his subject. Mr. Mi Monnles Is his
torically correct. My recollection is that
McClellan always wore the military cap oT
the period In which he served when com
mander of the Army of the Potomac.

Margaret Smith, colored, who was several
weeks ago sentenced to the house of correc

of habeas corpus. It was contended that the
magistrate's papers were defective and that
the evidence did not prove her guilt. Judge
Henderson ordered her release.
Senator Blair Lee will, it is understood, in
troduce in the Maryland senate within the
next few days a bill providing for a county
treasurer for Montgomery county. It will
provide that such an officer be appointed by
the county commissioners and that his an
nual salary of $2,0(10. The enactment of such
a law would do away with the tax collectors
and annually save the county several thou
sand dollars.
The thirty-third annual convention of the
farmers of Montgomery county will be held
at Sandy Spring February 8. Subjects of in
terest to farmers generally will be discussed
by Messrs. Charles F. Kirk, John Bonifant,
Alban Brooke, Charles F. Brooke, E. Lloyd

Mr. Thomas Dawson, one of the county's
best-known republicans, has signified his in
tention of seeking the nomination for Con

Mr. B. C. Hughes, one of this county's
best-known citizens, whose home is near
Travilah, was the victim of an unfortunate
gunning accident in North Carolina last
Friday. While partridge hunting with Dr.
Robert C. Warfield of this place and Rev.
W. F. Locke, pastor of Mount Vernon M. E.
Church, Washington, he was struck in the
face by several shot from the guns of his
ccmpanlons. Qne shot entered his riffht
eye, destroying the sight of that member,
but the others did not penetrate the flesh.
On Monday the injured eye was removed,
such an operation being found necessary to
save the sight of the other.
No blame Is attached to either Dr. War
field or Mr. Locke, both of whom are much
distressed by the occurrence. The dogs
stood a bird near Dr. Warfield and Mr.
Locke and between them and Mr. Hughes,
wh< was about 150 yards distant. Mr.
Hughes was in line with the probable direc
tion the bird would take, and he was called
to move to one side. Instead, however, lie
came directly toward his companions, who
were unable to see him because of the thick
growth. As the bird flew up both Dr. War
field and Mr. Lacke fired, with the result
stated.
At first it was not thought that the In
Jury was a serious one. but the following
day the condition of the injured eye became
so serious that the hunt was terminated
and the party proceeded to Washington,
where Mr. Hughes was placed under the
care of a specialist at the Eye and Ear
Hcspital. He is still at the Institution and
Is understood to be getting along satisfac
torily.

elected clerk to the board, was approved,
and Mr. Hilton took the oath of office as re
quired by law. The contract for the con

There Is understood to be a very Hrely
scramble among the democratic faithful of
thla county for appointments at the hands
of Gov. Warfield. The places as super
visors of elections, of which there will be
two for the democrats, seem to be the most
sought for. Already there are understood
to be eight gentlemen who have signified
their desire to serve. The woods are also
full of applicants for appointments as Jus
tices of the peace, notaries public and the
other plums to be distributed. It Is under
stood that the democratic state central
