COL D. R.
Visits Hartford. Tells Civil War
Stories to Members of Re
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.

Such Proof as This Should Con

The public endorsement of a local citi

and testifies to his fellow-citbcns, ad

may be sure he is thoroughly convinced
or he would not do so. Telling one's
experience when it is for the public
good is an act of kindness that should
be appreciated. The following state

CARE OFJHADE TREES
Method of Pruning and Treat
ment of Wounds to Prevent
Entrance of Decay-Producing
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
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.
