Lieut. Carter Johnson left Washing
ton Saturday over the Southern for
Huntsville, Alabama, to join his regi
ment the 10th Cavalry, which has been
stationed there, but which is today
moving to points iv Texas. Lieut.
Johnson has been on a leave of absence
of several months which time he spent
in New York with friends recuperat
ing from the hardships endured whilst
in the Cuban swamps with Gomez,
when he was sent on a scout and spe
cial expedition by the government. At
one time his relatives here heard he
had been killed by his own men, but
this report was soon found to be with
out foundation. There is generally
believed to have been some bad be
havior on the part of these men, and
I HaA treatment by Gomez, but the facts
Kto that expedition have never
ide public.
, Johnson would have visited

in . orders requiring him to
week earlier than he had ori
ginally intended caused him to go at
once to his command. He has pretty
fully recovered his lost health.

It Is Seventy-five Years Old.
A subscriber writing from Craigs
ville, says: "Enclosed you will ffind $1
for which you will continue sending I
me the Weekly Spectator for thej
present-year. How old is the Specta
tor? I have known it ever since I
was a small boy, when it wore its first
swaddling clothes. My father was one
of the first subscribers to the dear old
Spectator, 86 or 75 years ago. It is
one of the best and most substantial
papers published in the State. Long
may it live to Jgive the general news
of the county."
