Leaves From an
A Georgia Colon?
Wouldn't Pass His Colonel.
On il beautiful Sentclnncr night in
1>?U, when the Thirtieth Virginia regi
ment was encamped on Hodgeman's
farm, lying on the Richmond, Freder
icksburg and Potomac railroad, a few
milos from Acquia Creek, suddenly the
challenge, "Halt! who come? there?"
rang out upon the silence ol' lin- occa
sion. A rolonel in full il ress uniform
iiniiiviliateiy carne to a stop and replied,
"Mor?irs, you know me. 1 am sour
colonel." "Faith and well I know
you ordinarily, hut when on duty I
know no one unless he has the counter
sign." "Morris, I haven't it. 1 am
just from Gen. (Joline's headquarters,
and failed to get it before leaving.
You see I have just turned my horse
over to Nat there at the table, and
there is my tent. There will he noth
ing wrong in passing me in," at the
name time advancing as though he in
tended to disregard the sentinel. Im
mediatolx cocking his musket and
drawing it down on the Colonel, Mor
ris cried out, "Halt! or you are a dead
colonel." Knowing the faithfulness of
the old Irishman to every duty the
Colonel requested him to call the cor
poral of the guard and pass him in,
which was promptly done.
The next morning after the old
guard was relieved, 'the Colonel's or
derly, one of the Samuel boys of Caro
lina, and a member of Company E,
came to my tent, saying that Colonel
Carx wished me to come to his quar
ters and bring Dulaney with me. Not
knowing what it meant, I asked Mor
ris what he nad done, and he related
the foregoing incident. On reaching
the Colonel's tent Morris gave the
usual salute with "the top of the morn
ing to you, Colonel. I hope I find you
well this morning." "None the bet
ter, Morris, for having been kept out
last night by you." "Ah! and faith,
it is Colonel; I was but doing my duty,
and if I had passed you in without the
countersign, I dare say I would now be
blindfolded, kneeling at the stake, and
you giving the command to the boys,
Ready! Aim! Fire! When in an instant
there would have been a dead Irish
man." "Yes and I believe I'll shoot
you myself," at the same time reach
ing down under his table and taking
from a basket a bottle of brandy, un
corked it, and filling a large glass tum
bler, handed it to Mor?is, who held
it up before'him, his eyes sparkling
with joy and gladness, and said:
"Here is to your health, Colonel, with
the wish that you maybe out many
nights and I the lucky chap to catch
you coming- in without the counter
The Colonel said he considered it the
best witticism he had ever heard, and
always had a kind feeling for Morris,
who, poor fellow, was severely wound
ed at Sharpsburg, but lived several
years after the war near Fredericks
burg with his sister, and now fills a
brave Confederate soldier's grave.

A War Reminiscence.
It was during the winter of 1864-65,
which will long be remembered py the
soldiers who took part in the campaign
in the Valley of Virginia, as one which
tried men's souls and their heels also,
that the thrilling scene occurred which
I am about to describe.
The old Fourth Cavalry was on a
forced march down the Valley to meet
a column of the enemy which was ad
vancing; and after a day'a ride went
into] bivouac just at nightfall on the
We did not have the "cigars and
cognac," as the old song says, with
which * 'to bivouac, ' ' so after a hasty
"bite of something to eat, " and pick
eting and feeding horses, we soon roll
ed ourselves, head-and ears, in.our
blankets, and lay prone upon the
froz?t?yrrcund. ,
To a tired soldier sleep comes quick
ly, atf?^witb? it almost entire oblivion;
he rarely dreams, so hardly moro than
a minute elapsed after tho lying down
before the entire camp was as silent as
the grave. ' - ./? \
While preparing for rest we had
been notified of a coming snow storm,
not only by the black clouds .^hicb
hung heavily in the northeast, but by
heralds in the shape of cutting snow
flakes propelled by the wintry blast \
. It was fearfully cold; so bitter was
it, indeed, it waa thought expedient to
dispense with the usual camp guard so
as to ejgable all to obtain whatever of

' The regiment at that time numbered
between*eix and seven hundred men,
who, soldier-like, caring only for the
present,'and unmindful of tho morrow,'
slept soundly und, I may add, rapidly.
I had slept aa I bad suppo*r.1 only a

With a vigorous push, I threw my

tacle presented itself to my astonished
The black clould had passed away,
and the bright morning moon shone
flown upon thu ground covered with a
white mantle of C'v^ht inches of snow.
Looking around me, as far as the eye
could reach in every direction, I saw
nothing hut the unbroken snow cover
ing which appeared to bu mounds or
graves in every conceivable position. I
was sitting upright in my own grave
in the middle of a huge cemetery.
Not a human being could I discover
anywhere, while everything was as
still as death itself.
While I was wrap1: in the contempla
tion of so wonderful a scene, the bugle
at headquarters, a quarter of a mile
off, sounded the reveille and lo, what a
change! In wi instant the quiet
scenery was alive-all the men arose
at once from their snow graves, and
what was the stillness of death but a
moment before was now bustle and ac
tivity. Instantly the text flashed
through my mind. "The trumpet
shall sound and the dead shall be
raised." Words fail mein ascribing
my feelings at the moment of
this occurrence. Had I had any idea
of the time I would have called some
of my comrades.

be probably the only person who has
really seen a prototype of the resurec

Leo's Last Letter to Jackson.
The letter written by General Lee to
General Jackson, before the death of
the latter, was as follows:
Chancellorsville, May 4, 1863.-Gen
eral : I have just received your note in
forming me that you were founded. I
cannot express my regret at the oc
currence. Could I have dictated
events, I should have chosen for the
good of the country to have been dis
abled in your stead.
I congratulate you upon the victory,
which is due to your skill and energy,
Most truly yours,
R. E. Lee.
To General T. J. Jackson.
Stuart's Congratulations.
General Stuart issued the following
order to his troops on the result of the
cavalry fight at Brandy station:

our troops
j little taken from the stagnant pools 1

I again preparing to receive us, we
halted our men ami gave them several
hours rest. Everything being ready,
a sr >rt march brought us within sight
of Richmond, where the enemy made a
third stand, when we moved on and
attacked them the third time. After
hard fighting we routed them, and
drove them through the place a little
before sundown, in utter confusion.
In this last fight we did not lose many
men, but we raptured from 1.200 to
1,500 prisoners, besides their killed and
wounded. After we had whipped them
in front and started them running,
Colonel-, with his command, who
had been sent around on the Lexington
road to catch them, keeping his com
mand in ambush until the retreating
army came up, attacked them and suc
ceeded in capturing and killing nearly
the whole army, taking all their guns
and some ten pieces of artillery, with
ail their wagons, stores, etc. It is
estimated that their killed, wounded
and missing will reach some 10,000,
while ours will not reach more than
from 300 to 500 killed and wounded.
Their loss in killed and wounded offi
cers is very heavy. The troops were
from Ohio. Indiana, and Kentucky, anc
commanded by Gen. Bull Nelson-Col

little water, marching with a stead]

It was one of the grandest battles
ever saw.

assiduous training in th* target prat

1898, when the navy was using bla<
powder and when sights and other par
of the equipment were poorly develo

satisfactory, if a 12-inch gun fired o:

Dispensary Still Open!
Anderson County has declared ag*i?8? the Dispensary,
and for several months past that great moral institution
haB been closed to the thirsty throats. But this great
and good Dispensary of Genuine Bargains still remains
open and in full blast. There maybe other dispensers
of bargains, but the fact remains that nene of them eau
compare in worth and general satisfa?tion with ours.
Why V Because it is cur earnest desire- and endeavcr tc
put the quality into our Goods that will please the trade,
and so afford an inducement on their* part tc bring their
dollars here to be exchanged for one hundred cents
worth of the plumpest value ever given by any Store in
South Carolina. It is a tremendous satisfaction for> a
customer to know when he is buying a Darrel of Flour*/
that ho is getting the very host, purest and liveliest Flour |
to be had on tho market at a reason able rate, and it is for
this reason that we saw tho advantage of perfecting- *
So that.the name itself vould be a'guarantee as to its
purity and bakiDg excellence. In doing this we have
taken high ground, and have established for Dean's Pat
ent a high reputation that carries with it a prestige over
other cheap Flours that claim to be in tho Bame class.
Those who have compared both together aro our moot
enthnsiastio customers on Dean's Pstent, and this shows
that the people know a good thing when they soe it.
The same argument applies-to
When we decided to put in a line of Star Brand Sho?s
we were assured by the best judgOB of Shoes all over the
country that we had made the best selection possible.
Onr experience with the line during the past two years
proves the wisdom of our s?lection, for our Shoe trade
during that time bas inoreased over 200 per oent, show
ing again that the people know a thing or two.
If y i u are particular about what you EAT and what
you WEAK, come to our place anti get your whims
catered to, for we can satisfy you.
We are largo dealers in-?

And by virtue of our buying in largo quantities we are
