Henderson is the ninth member of the 2Clh Legisla ture of Texas to answer Hie dread ful summons to a final accounting, which must in time come to us all. My personal acquaintance with him began with the assembling of the leg islature In January l&'J'J. in which we served together on several Important committees, Including the one on fi nance, whose duties were most ardu ous, and exacting. He was faith ful and efficient in the discharge of any duty Imposed uion blm, and al though he was rarely heard upon the floor of the house he wielded a splen did influence upon the legislature in whleh h nuletlv oartlciuated. His special work was in behalf of ' the Agricultural and Mechanical college; mine was the establishment by the Bfata nt a poIIpl'p for the education of the white girls of Texas along in dustrial and strictly practical lines. Whatever conflicts may have after wards arisen between the two inter- puts h was not in the sliKhtest de- mw influenced bv them, but support ed my bill as vigorously as I did his claims for support of the A. & M. College. He was a wise and faith Jul representative of his people and a man whose friendship I apprecia ted Hnd enjoyed. Of his domestic life I know but little further than to speak from my own personal expe rience of his generous hospitality. The news of his death In the prime of his useful life Impresed me with a feeling of unusual sadness and suggests that it would not be amiss to offer this feeble tribute to the mem ory of my departed former associate and ever true frend. Greenville, Texas, March 2, 1908. MARCH 1, 1908 METHODIST CHURCH REVIVAL. The parable of the vine and the branches supplied Dr. Packard with a subject of great possibilities at the Methodist church last night, and the theme was handled In a way new to many veterans In church atten dance. Dr. Packard's reasoning was fine, his illustrations forcible and the appllcatons convincing. The special subject of the sermon was "Fruit Bearing." Among the most forcible points made were that only the new gorwth of the vine from year to yea bears fruit, and the wrapping of ten drils about a fruitful stem will cut off its life and destroy Its fruitfulness. In the same manner there must be continuous spiritual growth, and the tendrils of evil Influences must be cut away from the spiritual life if it woud bear fruit. Both services were well attended yesterday, and strong Interest mani fested. Rev. Turrentlne was unable to attend the services, but hopes to be out today. Dr.' and Mrs. Claud Searcy returned to Hempstead yesterday after a visit to Capt. and Mrs. A. J Searcy. Dr. Searcy was called to Wheelock Tues day to perform a surgical operation.

SARGENT CALLED TO THE WHITE HOUSE. Ed Hall Preiident Roosevelt Deeply Interes ted in Hit Book on Santi ago Campaign. The Carllnvllle, (111.,) Democrat gives the following Interesting Ac count of a visit of Capt. H. H. Sar gent, formerly of the A. & SI. Col lege, to the white house at Washing ton, by request of President Roose velt: The friends of Capt. Sargent, now stationed at Fort Dea Moines, la., will be glad to learn that hla last book: "The Campaign of Santiago de Cu ba" has met with the highest commen dation from military men generally and hla superior officers particularly. As soon as the president had read the three volumes he ordered his aide Capt. McCoy to order Capt Sar gent, who at the time was in the campaign in South Dakota, to come to Washington on teoilorary duty, as he wlphed to talk with him about his book In which he was very much Interested. - .Our captain immediately put his trunk and bedding roll on a fast mule, rode 107 miles in 3 days and 18 miles in government wagons to the railroad thence to Washington where he was splendidly received by the president, invited to lunch with sev eral prominent people, among them the German ambassador and his wife. Of course the talk was ever the cantaln's new book and the ' presi dent and other officers went over the entire campaign and the president among other minor criticisms, compli- .niented htm very highly on his de scription of the action at Las Guas imas and invited him back the next day for another hours talk. The fact that the captain was ordered to travel 1.600 miles from South Da kota and 1,300 miles back to Des Moines shows Roosevelt Interest ed to see Capt. Sargent and have a talk with him and probably to size him up for future usefulness. The Democrat, as always. Is pleased to hear that our Macoupin boys and graduates of Blackburn are prosper ing in uheir life s work. ATTENTION CONFEDERATE VETERANS. Widows of U. C.
