COL D. R.
Visits Hartford. Tells Civil War Stories to Members of Re publican Office. A distinguished visitor to Hartford last Friday was Col. Murray, of Hardinsburg. While here the Colonel was In the Re- publican office and we got him started on some Civil War stories Here's one that he gave ns. For some time Col. Mur ray's regiment was .stationed nt Hopkins ville and during that time a prisoner was taken and condemned to he shot ns n spy. Col. Murray, then n subordinate officer, was ordered to take charge ol the execution the next morning at daybreak. He loaded the guns of the firing squad, putting blanks in half of them and bul lets in the rest The men were stationed in what was then known as the old Ilo.it House, because of its peculiar shape, and the condemned man was locked in one of the rooms of the old house livery thing was prepared for the execution and the hours .slipped by. The Co'one! was by no means enthusiastic over the job and dreaded it almost as much as the prisoner. Sometime during the night, liortcver, some new evidence was intro duced and he was ordered to .stay the execution. He went to tell the prisoner of the good news. The mental picture, says .Mr. Murray, is still visible. He opened the door and saw the man lying on his rude bed of straw, face buried in his arms, undoubtedly thinking of the fate which was to meet him upon the appearance of the sun, the birds and other things mercy. Colonel Murray broke the good news, the man sighed, turned over and said, "thank God. " A few weeks ago Colonel Murray received a letter postmarked New York He broke open the envelope, read the letter, and imagine the surprise of the ex Adjutant General when he saw that it was from this same man whom he had been ordered to execute. The letter stated that the writer well remembered Sir. Murray and could still hear his voice announcing mercy. Colonel Murray was in Hartford once during the War nnd was near here a second time. On one occasion while riding nt the front of his regiment with the Lieut. Colonel near Hartford they were met by a voile) of shots Mr .Murray was riding a spirited Kentucky horse which, being scared by shots, threw him. The men thought him dead but he was soon up again unhurt and a seaich was started for the enemy The small woods ahead was searched quickly and carefully but not a man could be found. It was quite a strange incident as there must have been several men in the firing party. The Colonel thinks now that there was a cave somewhere in the woods and the Rebs. fired anil immediately sought refuge in the cave. Colonel Murray is a splendid type of Southern Gentleman, tall and graceful he moves about with the ease of one many years his junior. Hartford Republican. Medicine or Food.

JOHN D. UABBAQE. CARE OFJHADE TREES Method of Pruning and Treat ment of Wounds to Prevent Entrance of Decay-Producing Germs. The best tlmti to attend to several im portant operations connected with the proper care of shade trees Is during tin late fall or earlv winter. This work may be done at this season of the year, however, when weather conditions per mlt. Large dead, decaying, cr unsightly limbs may be removed. The best way to do this is to saw one-quarter or one third through the limb from the under side, at a point l! inche3 or a foot be yond the point where the final cut is to be made. A second cut on the upper fide should be made a half-inch or mote back of or beyond the first one. The sawing on the upper side should be con tinued until the limb falls. The first jcut on the under side is to prevent the splitting or stripping ot the outer wood and bark as the limb falls, something which almost invariably happens when a heavy limb is removed by a single cut from the upper side. This leaves a stub several inches long which must be sawed off close to the trunk, or close to the larger supporting limb, as the case may be. The stub should be held in place until completely severed. The final cut should be made so that its sur face will conform as nearly as possible with the shape of the supporting limb or trunk. No projecting stub or stump should be left, as this interferes with the rapid healing of the wound.
