Capt. Mike Salter took ten more men
to Lexington to fill out Capt, Duncan's
company. They tell a good one on
Capt. Mike. It is said that when he
arrived at camp the officers of several
other companies needed recruits and
stole some of Salter's men. None were
in uniform, so Salter had a time in
keeping enough to fill the vacancies in
Duncan's company. He was never
able to find the stolen men and was
pretty hot 'til it was found he had
enough without them.

Miss Elisa Lusk tells us there were

out, though Miss Lusk says she never

will be examined today (Friday) and

ought to expect. Their uniforms and
guns have not been issued, 'but these
will be furnished at Chickamauga.

When you ask an editor to suppress
an item of news because it does not
suit you, then go and ask your grocer
to exclude pickles from his store be
cause you can't eat them, or your
butcher to quit keeping bologna be
cause it goes against your stomach.
There is just as much fairness in one
as in the other. News is the editor's
stock in trade. So are pickles to a
grocer and bologna to a butcher.
Soldiers Decorate Monday.
The old soldiers, both Coufederate
and Federal, will meet in the Masonic
Hall Monday at one o'clock and march
from there to the Court House where
speeches will be' made by prominent
men. At the conclusion of the speak
ing, the veterans will march to the
Cemetery and decorate the graves of
all soldiers buried there. Those in
charge request all who will contribute
flowers to send them to Masonic Hall
before dinner Monday, and also ask
the good ladies to come then and ar
range the flowers into suitable bo
quets. All old soldiers are expected to
join in and assist in these ceremonies.
In Fine Shape.
Mr. J. Mort Rothwell came down
from Dripping Springs Saturday and
tells The Record that the work of re
building at his resort has about been
completed. All the old houses were
torn away and splinter new ones
erected. The hotel proper has many
large, airy rooms, and broad verandas
extend around the entire building.
Mr. Rothwell has had ten carpenters
at work for some six or eight weeks,
and the work was pushed rapidly. He
has purchased new carpets and furni
ture for the rooms, and no hotel will
be neater or better appointed than
wilMe famous old Dripping Springs.
Mrs. Rothwell will have supervision
of the table, which fact insures this
department to be second to none in
K. P. Decoration Sunday.
Garrard Lodge, No, 29, Knights o
Pythias, will hold its annual decorat
ion exercises Sunday afternoon. The
members will meet at their hall prompt
ly at 2 o'clock, and at 2:00 sharp
will march to the Court House, where
the usual ceremonies will be held.
Rev. neary Faulconer will deliver the
oration this year. The public is cor
dially invited to witness these cere
monies and hear the oration. At the
conclusion of the Court House exer
cises the Knights, preceeded by the
Lancaster band, will march to the
Cemetery and decorate the graves ol
the brethren sleeping there. The K.
P. ceremonies are beautiful, and the
members are working now getting
each part down nicely.
The second Regiment, of which the
Lancaster c-.mpany, is a member was
ordered to Chickamauga and went to
that point Wednesday afternoon. Ihe
men had not recei.ved their uniforms
or guns, but will receive thes3 at the
new quarters. Lieut John M. Farra,
who was here Sunday, tells us the gen
eral impression is the boys will remain
at Chickamauga for at least three
months and then probably be ordered
to either Marila or Cuba. He says
that if the war is brought to a close
even within the next month, thatU. S.
troops will be needed in Cuba until a
stable Government is established, ne
says our men are all in good spirits
and are delighted at the idea of going
south. He says the boys ae slightly
disappointed at not getting their uni
forms, but they are happy as larks.
Death of Mrs. Palmer.
A telegram announcing the death of
Mrs. J. T. Palmer, at Richmond, crea
ted great surprise among the family's
many friends in Lancaster. Mrs. Pal
mer had been ill only for a few days
and a surgical operation became nec
essary. She was unable to stand the
strain and b.-eathed her last at 12:30
o'clock Saturday. The remains were
brought to Lancaster Sunday after
noon and funeral services conducted
by Rev. Faulconer in the Presbyterian
church. The deceased was a Miss
Cochran, and was born and reared in
this county. She possessed all the
traits which go to make a noble, chris
tian woman, and was a great favorite
with all who enjoyed her acquaintance.
She leave3 to mourn with her bereav
ed husband, two children. They are
Elsie, aged 12, and John, aged 10.

sympathy of all in their sad affliction
At the conclusion of the services at
the church, the remains were followed
by a large procession of friends to the
Lancaster cemetery, where the inter
ment took place.

Jas. I Hamilton was seriously injur
ed Tuesday night. He was in a buck
board with Tom Cecil and when near
Hubble drove to a watering trough.
Cecil got out and removed the bit so
the horse could drink. The animal
became frightened and Hamilton, not
knowing the bridal was loose, jerked
up the reins. The horse started to run
and Hamilton rolled out the back of
the wagon. He fell some distance and
struck his head on a rock. A deep
gash was cut in the back of his head
and he was rendered unconcious. He
was brought to town and physicians
worked with him all night. The fall
was severe and blood ran from Mr.
Hamilton's ear nearly all night before
it could be stopped. At this writing
he is resting easy and the physicians
say he will recover. Mrs. Hamilton,
who was visiting in llroadhead, was
telegraphed for and came on the night
Lecture oa Cuba.
Rev. Edward W. Abbey, who was in

will deliver a lecture on "Cuba; ner
Stay and Her Hopes," at the Court
House Monday night Rev. Abbey had
frequent interviews with Counsul-Gen-eral
Lee, Captain Sigsbee and other
officers of the Maine, and watchei the
operations of the divers in recovering
the bodies of the dead seamen. Con
versations with Spanish officials and
Cuban gentlemen gave him rare oppor
tunities of learning the views and feel
ings of both parties in the dread work
of devastation of the Island. Consul
tations with Miss Clara Barton, of the
Red Cross Society, and scenes among
the starving, gave him a vivid insight
into the ravages of-the war. His let
t jrs to the Northern press called forth
from Henry M. Field, the eminent
traveler and author, this editorial com
ment: "The-best appeal we have read
or sees anywhere for pity, for jostle
and for peace." -

S far no arrangements have been
made for; receiving the express and
mail off the night passenger trains.
The train service is excellent and, if
the officials will only have the express
and mail put off, they will soon find
that it will pay both departments.
There is no night agent at the depot
and baggage is pitched off into the
darkness to lie there 'til day. At a
station of this size, it is hard to under
stand why this is allowed. Letters
have been written by shippers, busi
ness men and passengers and this
trouble will certainly be remedied
within a few days. If the express peo
ple only knew what a drawback this
negligence is to them, they would
make hot haste to remedy it.
