The Harrison Dry Goods Co.,
Col. F. S. Bass, of Hood's
Brigade, died at the Confederate
home in Austin last Friday at
noon, aged 66 years,. He was
a man of high character and at
tainments and a gallant soldier.
Born in Virginia in 1851 he grad
uated from the Virginia Military
institute with distinction, ranking.
third in a class of twenty-nine.
A few years after graduation he
removed to Texas, settling at
Marshall, where he engaged most
successfully in teaching. At
the first call to arms in 1861 he
enlisted under the Southern cross
and surrendered at Appromattox.
Enlisting in the First Texas in
fantry, Hood's brigade, he shared
throughout the war its suffer
ing, its privation and its heroism
and at the close of hostilites was
its commander. As the senior
colonel he commanded Hood's
brigade at Appomattox and when
the war was over inquiry disclos
ed that he had been made a bri
gadier general for gallant and
conspicious service in battle, but
in the confusion attending the
last days of the Confederacy his
commission was not delivered to
him. After the surrender he re
turned to Marshall and
taught school there and
at Jefferson, where he suc
cessively resided, though al
ways reserved and modest, he
held that place in the esteem of
the people to which he was en
titled as an exemplary citizen
and distinguished educator. Two
years ago he came to the Confed
erate home. Crippled in bodyJ
anu broken in health, unable to
pursue his vocation, too vsensi
tive and proud to except the
generosity of friends or rela
tives, he sought the retreat which
the gratitude of the State had
provided for her heroes, and,
which, having periled his lifein
her cause, he could accept with
out sacrifice of his pride or his
manhood. A rare and perfect
gentleman, the golden age of the
South produced few gentler and
nobler men and the gray wrapped
no more dauntless and intrepid
