After breaking even with that fast team (the one that it is said has gone beyond the salary limit) Montgomery in the games Saturday and Sunday, they proceeded to Char leston and gave the leaders a good drubbing, the score standing 10 to 8 in the game Monday. Schaefer pitched a jjckhi game altn'?ugii iiring hit hard. Ke struck out seven oi the leaders and got two of the IS hits made. Witter, the new left 4 fielder, signed up trocn Charleston, hit the ball over the right field fenc. for a home sackcr. He plays a nici field too.

Umpire?Severs. the dope. ^ Golden, the new pitcher, signed j fron Sew Castle, Pa., pitched the1 Sunday game against Montgonerv. nnd made a very creditable showing. He conies highly recommended and i will prove a valuable addition to oui pitching staff. Our own, Dyke Dashner, is bacl- i with us. He asked lor his release from Decatur, 111., where he had signed up before the Virginia Yalle> League was organized, and it was granted. Dyke made good with the , Decater team and could have stayed 1 there if he had wanted to, but ho 1 would rather play ball where he could j he at home part of the time. He will probably pitch one of the games, here against Charleston this wtek. All the "fans" are glad to see Dykt . Iwick here. That Mullencamp boy has a record j of four homes runs in fire straight : games, every one of them over th< , fence, to say nothing of the two bag- : ger and singles he had. If we are not mistaken, Pickell. at ; third base, did not have an error ii 17 straight chances. He is hitting I the ball too. Center fielder Vallentine and Pitc her Meister were released Saturday, There wasn't anything wrong with. Yallies fielding; he nailed everything in the center pasture and some that were over in left and right also, but he was weak at the stick and that made it necessary for a change to be made. His many friends are sorry ] that it was not possible for him to re" | main. Meister it is said, asked for j his release, having another )>osition j in view. The time for weeding out the team (June 1st) is drawing near, and a j few more players will be let go at that time, as all the teams will have to cut dawn too twelve players on that date. Manager Mack got three hits in the first game with Charleston. We have always,said that if Mack straight" ened out on them, and could keep - -from hitting so many foul, that he would be the best hitter on the team. That time has evidentally arrived. HARTFORD LIFE'S ANKEAL MEETING?FIVE NEW DIRECT ORS CHOSEN ON BOARD. Nearly four-fifths of the capital stock of $500,000 of the Hartford Life Insurance Company was repres ented at the annual meeting of the stockholders of the company yester day morning, when the meeting was called to order by President George E. Keenev. Despite the change re cently made in the control of the corporation, only the usual number of stockholders were present at the meeting. According to the charter of the company, 17 directors are al lowed, but it has been the custom for several years to elect but eleven. Three vacancies existed yesterday, caused by the death ot Judge Arthur F. Kggleston, and the withdrawal of James ii. Knight and Ricnzi B. Par :er. Hal ii>ls distributed to tile stock :olders contained seven Connecticut ?epresentatives, all heretofore con nected with the company, and foul epresentatives of the new controll ing interests. The ticket *as elect -d by the unanimous vote of the 3, sT.S shares represented at the meet .ng. The directors as elected are: Of the Old Board?Andrew Gor don of Enfield, Hon. Lewis Sperrv of Hartford, Gen. Geo. E. Keenej of Somers, Lewis E. Gordon, oi Hartford, Hon. Everett J. Lake oi Hartford and Raymond G. Keenej of Hartford. New Members?John G. Hovt ot Cincinnati, Louis A. Ireton of Cin cinnati, J. S. S|)cnccr of Point Pleas ant, W. Va., Jas. F. Heady, o: Lochland, ()., and Thos. F. Law rence, of Hartford. Later the Board of Directors met and re-elected the old officers, the only change, being the addition oi Mr. Hoyt to tlie list of vice-presi dent, which is increased to three' The officers elected are: President?Geo. E. Keenev. Vice-Presidents?John G. Hovt. Raymond G. Keenev, Lewis E. Gor don. Secretary Thos. F Lawrence. The meeting yesterday hears out the previous statement of the com pany that the recent passing of con trol means no change in officials ot plans except along the lines of pro gress The business of the company during the past four months has been exceptionally good, showing the de velopment of the agency organiza tion which has been underway for some time.? The Hartford Daily Courant. The above article will be of inter est to the stockholders here of tin Cincinnati Life Insurance Company, ? >f which company the controlling in terests in the Hartford Life Insur ance Company, of Hartford, Conn., was recently acquired. There is not any doubt, but what in Hunter we have got the best catch er in the league. Talk about throw- ; ing to bases, why it is same as a bul let going down the line, and right on the spot too. Dougherty is a catcher, but has been playing right field. He is pos sibly not as fast as some we have seen but when he comes to the bat, he makes up for what shortcomings he may have in the field, as he is a sure hitter. Best's work at short is looking up. He had four chances in the Monday game at Charleston, besides two put outs, getting one hit and playing an errorless game. Well we are in the first division. How does it feel boys: That bunch of jokes by the name of Yorke, sent here to umpire the Montgomery scries, should be wheel ing coal somewheres. He certainly does not think for a moment that he ranks any old place as an umpire. We know a school kid in this town that can put it all over him. Subscribe for the Register. Memorial Day, 1910 ? ? ? Country's Duty to Heap Honors on the Thinning Ranks of the Veterans N* the armies during the progress of the Civil war there were enrolled a total of over 2.000.000 men. Tens of thousands of these perished from wounds re ceived in the struggle or from diseases contracted through the exposures and hardships of the cam paigns. Other tens of thousands re turned maimed in limb or shattoreJ in health, never to become again . capable of carrying on the natural struggle for existence and supremacy in the peaceful pursuits of life. Since the close or the war. the ranks of the remnants of the Union army have been thinned out con stantly by the hand of death. The expectancy of life left to these sur vivors of the war, taking them In the mass the day that the great review was held at Arlington Heights after : peace was restored, was much less than the normal term of human life. Still in spite of the thinning out of the ranks there remain with us today 1 a vast host of the "old boys In blue" 1 who left their homes and the peaceful pursuits of life to go to the front and j protect the homes of those left be. hind, hold up the flag of the country ' ??<1 preserve the Union of the states, j This great "gray host" of the old sol diers presents a pathetic but inspiring spectacle to all of us this latest Memo rial day, when we are called upon to commemorate their deeds of valor, 'heir patriotic devotion to the Bag | and and to the Union, and to nil our souls as at a pure fountain with a re newed spirit of patriotism, of greater love for our country, greater appro : <-if.tton for our admirable institutions and a deeper and more devoted de termination If the occasion should ! arise to emulate their deeds and to ; be as true to the flag and the country j as they were, handing down to suc ; <">rt!ng generations the Union intact. ; is institutions unimpaired, as they I did for us. Tlie United States has certainly : stamped the old maxim. "Republics , are ungrateful," as false. There never j was a country under any form of gov t emment which showed the measure | of gratitude to the men who defended ; the flag and preserved the nation at j all comparable to the United States J of America as shown by the history j 'if the treatment accorded to the sol I diers who fought in the great war. Year by year from that time to this, the scope of the pension list has been J steadily enlarged. Almost a haif | -entury after the first call for troops 1 by President Lincoln in the spring or 1S61. in spite of the hundreds of thou -ands or the old army who have crossed over to the other side, the government Is paying this year a I larger sum In pensions than was pro , vided the first year after the war and I almost as much as In any previous year in all that have y*?se4 by. I As the years roll by w* ?;j should j cultivate the spirit mrvntfrsted by the government in enlarshjjt tho. scope of : the pension list. As Mh?xt?d above this proves that the gra^ul hearts of Americans are tei*b?4 m*rr tenderLy TO OUR GRADUATES. I here is a structure which everv ? graduate from our school is building, , .vounff and old, rich and poor, each i one for himself. It is called "char j acter," and every act of your lives is a stone for this structure. If day by 1 'lav you are careful to build your lives with pure, upright deeds, at the end you will stand a fair temple, honored by God and man. But as : >ne leak -will sink a ship, and one I flaw break a chain, so one mean, dis honorable act or word will forever leave its impress and work its in Huenee on your character. Then let the several deeds unite to form a day and one by one the days jrow into noble years, and the years as they slowly pass win raise at last a beauti ful edifice, enduring forever to your : praise, and you will cherish with the : utmost tenderness the memories of I your school life. The old school | house, the familiar walks about the ; place, the desk upon which you wrote i your name, all indelibly stored away jin memory never to be forgotten. with a sen^e of the debt that owa the old soldiers ns the years roll by. Those of us who sec the "old boys in blue" marching through the utreeta Oil Memorial day year by year, can scarcely miss .being struck by a sense of the weight of years that rests upon the shoulders of ih!.? "good gray army." Remember It Is more than a whole generation ago, as human life goes, almost a generation and a half, since the last recruit was enrolled In the volunteer army of 'he Tnlon Just before the war came to Its close. There are very few members of the Grand Army, very few soldiers of the Civil war. who are only at the three score mark. Indeed, there are not many of them who are not at the psalmist's term of life, three score and ten. There are but few alive who answered the first call of President Lincoln. If the new recruit were only twenty when that call went out, ho is sixty-eight now. The soldier who was thirty Is nearly eighty. It Is a touching thought to think of this noble army and look back through the half-century that Is gone by and think of the bright, promising, sturdy youths with life all before them, with quickened pulses, with linn, unwaver leg trend that shook the earth In the first army corps and brigades organ lied In the early days of the war | When the great review was held near ?Washington, after peace was made, the eves of these "boys In blue" were still bright with hope, their steps still Arm and their benrts resolute. Tn like most other armies, they went back to their homes glad the war was over. They returned to the occupa Hons thev had laid down when the call to arms reached them. They have been through all these years of busi ness good citizens, law-abiding, indus trious and self-respectirg. taking enre nf themselves and of those dependent upon them as generally and as effi ciently as those who never heard the rattle of musketry or the roar of ar tillery. nor the shock of cavalry charging over the plain. Year by year their ranks nrc thln nirg out now very rapidly. Year by year, thousands of them drop. They mav never have another opportunlt} of experiencing a little Jcy begoitei of the respect :.nd gratitude shown b; their countrymen. It Is fitting tha th" graves of those who are gon< should be decorated with Cowers 11 memory of what they did and endured but it Is still more important that w. should show to these who still remnii among us our high appreciation c their patriotism and valor. Long live in thousands and tens o' thousands the "boys in blue. Ma? their ranks thin slowly. May man. years pass by before "taps" is sound ed over the grave of the last of tin: great army of grizzled heroes. Am wLile they live may Americans of tht present and of coming generation! never lack In their admiration anr ! gratitude to the men who protocte ? the homes of America, who uphcli the fag of the country, and who pre served the tnlon of states intact I with all the admirable institution: \ framed by the fathers of the republic ANCELINE HAYMAN DEAD.

COMMENCEMENT EXERCISES AT KOOFFS OPERA HOUSE LAST NIGHT. LARGELY ATTENDED. The High School commencement, which took place last night, was one of the brilliant successes of this days generation anil there was no lack of audience to witness the workman ship wrought out by these years of earnest endeavor and skillful drill. For half an hour before the doors were set ajar people were wending their way thither. As they beheld this culmination of well applied aud judiciously directed efforts they must certainly concede that the liberal support they have given has not been lavished in vain or trusted to hands that have mis plied it: and while it does take means to maintain our school system if it is progressive, it is means well applied, and repairs in ben* tits f virfold anj community and our is untry in gc - j -ral.

MORE FACTS ABOUT THE ASSAULT NEAR ROCKCASTLE. ?SHINN BETTER. i The following article taken from the "Mountaineer" of Ravenswood are the farts in the assault ease of Cain vs. Shinn, mention of which was made in our last issue. On Monday morning Will Cain, son of Jas)>er Cain, of Mason county, was arrested, by J. F. Carney, special constable, and returned before P. M. \ Riley justice, of Ripley district. Young Mr. Cain is charged with maiming with intent to kill. The trouble occurred 011 Friday of last ? week in Jackson county near the ' Mason county line. It appears that there lias been trouble of long stand ing between some members of the family of Mr. Geo. Sliinn, and the family of Jasper Cain both of Mason county. Young Mr. Cain, the de fendant, was hauling corn to the Rockcastle mill. He bud hauled one livid to the mill on Thursday, and as 'ie attempted to go up the steps into the mill, Mr. Shinn snored him ofl lie steps, and some words were used j >etween them. On Friday voting Cain took an ; other load of corn to the mill and | after unloading it started home. Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Sliinn were there with team and wagon; Soon after Cain started Mr. Shinn started in pursuit, on his wav home. It is ?luinied Mr. Sliinn laid whip and soon came up insight of young Cain, driving at a rapid gait Mr. Cain laid whip and the two teams were on the go with -considerable speed. Mr. Shinn in the course of a mile over took Mr. Cain who driving to one side stopped his team. In driving past Mr. Shinn stopped his team and with his coat off, jump ed out of his wagon, and caught Cain by the arm and came near jerking him out, when the boy placed his foot against the side of his wagon and tore lose from him, and -securing some thing threw and hit Mr. Shinn just back of one ear knocking him senseless. Mrs. Shinn also got out of the wagon, and the team of Mr. Shinn ran off home and Cain drove on home. At the hearing before Squire Riley Monday the case was continued un 1 til the 28th day of May. Prosecut ing Attorney, R. E. Hughes, object ed to any bond being taken for th< appearance of the defendant on the ground that he had information to the effcct, that the physicians attending Mr. Shinn had announced that the injury of the stricken man necessari ally fatal, and that he was momen : tariallv expecting to hear of the death ;<>f Mr. Shinn. Whereupon the court ' refused taking any recognizance, and notified the parties to get ready for ] trial by 10 o'clockTuesday, and com ! mitted the defendant to jail. The defendant by his attorney Elmer L. Stone offered to give recognizance in j the penalty of $ i 0,000. Shortly I after tile defendant was committed, the prosecuting attorney, consented to let the defendant give bond, as we were informed, and bond was given and the case continued as stated. The defendant is twenty-one years old, just recently married, and weighs about 120 pounds." Mr. Cain, father of the boy men tioned, was in to see us Monday morning and tells us that the above is a true story of the affair. According to him, we were mis taken in saying that the boy was fixing to leave the country at the time he was arrested. Shinn is reported to be getting along nicelv, being able to sit up at this writing. YEAGER-SWAN. Mr. William E. Yeager and Miss Claudia V. Swan were married last Wednesday, at the Presbyterian Manse, by Rev. J. F. Baxter. The contracting parties were both from Maggie, and were a nice young couple.
