A Regiment That Went To Battle Unarmed.
Meiuphl. Commercial Appeal.
While tboy were in camp, before tho
battle of Mnrfreesboro, tho forty-fourth
Mississippi regiment, moro familiarly
known among tho men as Illy tho'e brig-tide,
was soparated from the camp on
oooonnt of tbo measles. In order to
equip recruits that wore constantly coming
in, with the sorely needed guns, the
Forty-fourth was practically disarmed,
the intention being to arm them later
on with guna expected from the rear.
About this timo tbo Federals began the
movement from Nashville which brought
on tho oclobrated battlo at
aud when tho bngado was ordered
into iosition an cffoit was hastily made
to arm tho who had now
reoovercd their health, with the old
smooth-bore muskets. These tbo
flatly deolinod to have, and were
then told that they wonld have to go into
the fight without arms. This tbey
did, and when tho order to charge was
givon, went yelling and bare-handed
aoross tbo field, bnt aa soon as a fallen
foo or friend, either was spied, be
wus promptly relieved of his gun and
accoutrements. Bo that by the time the
battle was over tho men wero nearly all

AFTER SIXTEEN YEARS.
NKTTA WIIITSON AIIHKSTEI) KOK
Was Living In Missouri Honored and
Respected Sheriff Cried When
the Warrant Was Served.
FAMILY TltOUIILK CAUSE OF IT ALL.
Rushbllvillk, Kt,, Judo 24 Nearly
sixteon years ago Tom Conrsoy was shot
and killed by Notts
in this county. To-day, after tbo
lapso of all these years, Whitson is under
arrost charged with his crime. Ilia
is but another uot in family fend.
Whitson's mother and Conrsey were
brother and sister. Their father, a man
of considerable means and accounted
wealthy in thoseotion in which he lived,
bad given to Mrs. Whitson tho place on
which she lived, and whioh sho had occupied
for Boveral years prior to the
propei tv had been made, and for some
reason her fathor decided to make other
provision for her aud deeded the place
to her brother, Tom. Sbo was dissatisfied
with the arrangement and refused
to movo off the farm, Tom Ooursey
sued out a writ of foroible detainer to
get possession, whioh to enraged young
Whitson that bo wonld bavo attacked
his nnole at the trial bnt for the intervention
of bystanders. Netta was then
a young man of less than twenty, bot
blooded and rash, but, devoted to bis
mother and bitter!; resented what ap
peared to him the treapaas of bis unole
upon her rights.
A short time after the trial of the writ
of detainer, Tom Conrsoy, who wasover
seer of the road, had a force of hands
working tbo road a few miles northwest
of Lewisburg. In the meantime several
messages bad passed betwoen young
Whitson and Coursoy, and tho foeling
had been growing deeper and more
On the day montioned, Whitson,
armed with a shotgun, rodo up to where
Conrsey and his hands were at work and
engaged Coursoy in conversation. Just
what occurred between thorn can not bo
positively statod, but witnesses who were
present at tbo time say that Conrsey
started toward Whitson as if to attack
him, whon the latter leveled bis gnn at
Coureey and tired. Conrsey fell and
died almost instantly, and Whitson
turned and rodo off. It was generally
supposed at tbo time that Whitson had
left tbo county. Ho did leavo, bnt was
ouly gono for a short while, when he
to his mother's bonse and remained
in tho vioinity for nearly a year.
Tbe killing occurred in tho vioinity of
Diamond Springs, now tbe well-known
health resort, but then an almost unbroken
wilderness. Not far from the
springs is a cavernous recess whioh
forms tbe bead of a gorge or ravine, and
a wilder or more secluded plaoe can not
be imagined. It was here that Whitson
lived most of tbe timo while in tbe county,
as bis nnole, Fres Conrsoy, had sworn
to avenge bis brother's death and was
constantly on tbo watch for him. Tbo
blaoe alterward came to be known as
"Murderer's Glen," and as snob (a pointed
ont to visitors to the springs as one
of the objects of interest. There are
yet to bo soen tbe remains of tbe fires
wbioh Whitson used while an inmate of
Finally Whitton found that bis biding
place would soon bo discovered, and left
the county for good ; and under an assumed
name began lifeanewina distant
State. Bnt the feudal firo burned nono
the less brightly in Fres Conrsey'a
breatt. He was nnoeasfng iu bis efforts
to looato tbe slayer of his brother, and
after tho lapse of fifteen years be succeeded
in looating tbe fugitive in
oounty, Mo, Whitson bad takon
tbe name of John Harris, was well known
and respected iu tbe community, and,
witbbii wife and seven children, was
prosperous and happy.
J. H. Tally, of Lewisburg, sooured a
requisition, and went ont to bring Whitson
bsek for trial. Whitson bad no intimation
of what was in store an til placed
under arrest.and tbe scene that followed
was one whioh would bavo tonobed tbo
strongest beait Tbe Sheriff who served
the warrant waa Whitson's personal
friend, and made tho arrest with tears
streaming down bis cheeks. When arrested
Whitson admitted bis identity,
and was brought baok by Tolly and
lodged in jail to await trial. It is 4
faot that though tho killing
ocourrcd nearly sixteon years ago, all of
tho witnesses are still living in tbo vicinity
where the tragedy took plaoe.
Wbitson will be tried at the September
term of court, and has employed
Attorney Sam Hooker to defend bim.
Tbo trial will bo largely attondod, and
it is not improbablo that tbe fend may
broak out afresh. The Conrseya them,
selvos are dividod, one of Tom Conrsey 'a
brothors having sheltered Whitson for
a week aftor the killing.

of hair two or three tnoaes long, was
fouad twenty-five feet from the bate,
Yostorday morning ho related this to a

A Word of Warning.
The timo is almostat band for trustees
and tcaobera to mako contracts for tho
fall term of school. In many places in
tbe State, in faot, an understanding has
already been arrived at although formal
contracts cannot bo mado until after
July 1st. A littlo attention to sonio of
tbe plain provisions of the school law
may save serious trouble for both trustees
and teachers. The law says: "The
pnblio money shall bo paid for teaching;
nothing else; and any other consideration
is bribery in the oyo of tho law and
may be punished as snob. If tbo
agroea to furnish tho coal, chalk,
brooms, buckets, maps, oh arts or any
thing else for tho benefit of tbo school,
it is considered bribery, just tbe same as
if ho had offered to give the trnstoo money
for his voto in selecting a teaober. It
tbo teacher should agrco to board with
tbo trustee or if any other special inducement
is offered, ponalty is tho same.
Tho law Hiys if tho trustees shall uocopt,
or offer to accept anything directly or
indirectly, for himself, for another person,
or for tbe diatriot, both trustoo and
teacher are liable to indictment and pun
ishment. Tho services of tho teacher,
as suob, is tho only thing tbat can legally
be offered or accepted as in return for
tho public fund of tbo district."

as well as all othor respects.

Dalqniri,ono of tho places of landing,

of Cubans worked valiantly in tho rear
of tbo Spaniards, and when the first
bodies of our troops reaobed land and
began to shoot they very quickly drove
tho enemy into tho bands of tbe insurgents.
Tbo battleship Texas took a lively
part in tbe work and took the minds of
a great many Spaniards away from the
twenty miles wost of Daiquiri, and into
tbo west batteries of Cabanas. One
man on tbo Texas, whoso namo I could
