CLAYTON. \ I believe I will call this arti cle “Salmagundi." * As yoi write along from memory alone, you leave some things out tha’ you feel like inserting after yoi iook back over the field and com pare notes with your friends. ■ Really, I did not expect to writ( so much when I began, and cer; tainly did not think there would be so many peonle interested ir these “Pen Pictures." I remember a class in Towne’s Analysis at the old Martin School which I think ought not to b« passed over in silence. All of the large boys and some of the smaller ones, belonged to the class, and every one stood at the head of the class by reason of the requirement that when one remained at the head till the les son was over he was then com pelled to go foot. I was thinking just the other day of the great number qfCapt. Martin’s old pupils still living: I mean of those who were old enough to and did enter the Con federate service. They all serv ed through the War who were old enough. I have heard recent ly that both the Fisher boys, Platt Bull and Alfred, and also Perry Nicks, were good soldiers. Only a few days ago, an old friend of mine was telling of Per ry Nicks during the war. Perry was in a Texas regiment, and his command w as camped for a time by my old friend’s regiment, and who knew Perry before the war, and they rnet several times . i * , ii. uuriiig \u%) wcu. it uictc was some complaint made of the boys of the Texas regiment, and Perry was asked one day what sort of men these Texans were anyway. “Why,” says Perry, “you may know what sort of men they are when I tell 'you Pm the best man in the com mand. ’ I have heard of Perry since ihe war some years ago still pur uing the legal practice. Dr. T. C. Harris, r.ow living at old Union church in Lee coun ty, whom we always called Tom, of course, was rather small at Martin’s school, but he was like the Irishman’s pig, “little but auld,” as I find by comparing notes, he was of the age of Dal las Stovall. Hf is another evi dence of Capt. Martin’s work manship, and one more of the old guard to make a doctor. I was*at the doctor’s home in Aug ust at the re-union of the John M. Simonton Camp of old sol diers, and the memorial day ser vice for the dead both soldiers and citizens buried there, and he has a beautiful country home, nestled in as fine natural grove as the country affords, and seems to be enjoying life, and is still actively engaged in relieving the the sick and suffering ones.. I know of hut one man now living in Lee countv who is likely to know anything of Tom Henry and Ed Garland, of whom I am now going to speak, and that I man is josnua warn, uvingiuar j ly north of Moorecvdle. The on ly time I ever saw Tom Henry an l Ed Garland was in 183'), at old Bageufalah creek, while the gro mas were being prepared for the fourth of July celebration, when Buck _ Owen made the speech of which I have spoken in some previous Pen Picture. At that time I also' made ' the ac quaintance of Nat Ward who was a friend and associate of Henry and Garland. The thing that 1 noticed particularly about Tom Henry and Nat Ward was their great strength. I noticed then driving the posts in the ground for the dinner scaffolding, which they did with as much apparenl ease as I could have driven £ small peg in the ground *with £ hammer, they using great wood en mauls, and swinging then over as if they had been men walking canes. They all cam< from Tennessee, and^were then simply on a visit, and did th< work just to show their strength for they were cei;tainly unde: i no obligation to do it. Ed Gar land was an altogether differen : man. He was small, rather lov of stature, and had a kind of dif : Acuity in speaking distinctly oi : account of his mouth being twis , ted to one side from the efleet o calomel. a'S I heard. But he wa an intellectual fellow, and eoul< make a fine speech, so I heard I knew Nat Ward from then 01 to the time of his death, but have never heard of Tom Henr, 5 or Ed Garland from that day t 1 this. I guess now, on reflection : \ that my brother, John Claytor •. will remember them. 1 While I was- making up th . j school I taught in Alabama in !; 1857, 1 approached a middle aged man who was himself a school ; teacher, and asked him to sub scribe to my-school. 1 was then not quite twenty years old, and beardless, and looked rather . youthful. He looked me in the face, and remarked in a rather cutting way, ’’You are too young to teach school. ’ Uncle had posted me about him before I went to him, so that I felt my way pretty secure, and I simply replied, “My friend. I have seen some old men who couldn’t teach school.’’ He did not subscribe, but sent all the while and chang ed his opinion, and was as good friend as I had. In 1854, as best my memory serves me, Ben Johnson taught a school at old Andrews Chapel, then, in Itawamba county, and which I attended for some time, walking about four miles. Ben Johnson was a great hand for exhibitions at the close of his schools I remember one he had at the close of one of his schools in the Bowland neigh borhood, in about 1852 or 1853, at which school brother James ' attended. Johnson captivated his patrons and his audience by his skill in. bringing out some thing new and unusual and, af ter he left the Andrews Chapel neighborhood he moved down a few miles south of Smithville, n Monroe county, and remained there for quite a while after the war when he moved to Johnson county Texas, where he died many years ago. About the time he left the Andrews Chapel neiyhborhnod. haviny lived while there at the place known as the Nathan Riley place, he was j taken with a very severe cough, •j and both he and his friends ' thought he had Tuberculosis. I This lasted for several years, j and he then began to mend of that; bu,t soon thereafter he had a wonderful trouble with his liver, and his tongue was coated like a man with tyfo-malariai fever, except that the coating on. the tongue was very white. He also suffered very much. This lasted during the entire war and for several years after wards, when he began suffering intense pain in the side of his back, and he was prostrated on his bed for a long while. Fin ally, the hurting in his back de veloped into a boil, as the doc tors thought and declared. Some days after the boii was lanced there came floating out through ( the boil an ordinary siaed sew ing needle, with the thread close cut still in the eye of the needle; ( and this needle had been the cause of all his suffering for all these years, being about thir teen years in all. I saw him only a short time after the needle ibated out, and saw the needle with the short cut thread still in it, and remember very well how it looked, so soon as the j needle came out, Johnson got wen, anu nau im uoaoie. This was aoout 18G7, I think. Ben Johnson was a very enter prising man, and had a great de sire to assist any wort ay young man in his education Ho it was who brought Bon Maniere to this country. I had a letter from Maniere only recently say ing so, but for Ben Johnson's enterprise and influence, Lee county would doubtless never have been blessed with the genial and lovable Ben Maniere, whose life has been a benediction to ■ many in old Itawamba and Lee counties and whose temperance wave started in 1854, has blessed many homes and gladdened many hearts.

Amount Fixed by Ciiar.ceilor Lairb ai On? Thousand Dollars and Defendant Immediately Released From jail The habeas corpus proceedings instituted by Messrs. Anderson and Long and J.W I’.Boggan. at torneys for the defendant before Chancellor Lamb to secure bail for Mrs. Lula McCollum, was brought to a sudden ending on the afternoon of the 15th. inst., by an agreement being reached j between the defendant’s a. ;or | neys and the attorney for the prosecution.

Mrs. B. M. Dillard, Rec. Sec. -• Kcyss Cemete y it is some what with a hesitancy that 1 undertake to write this article, but. however, on Wednesday the 2nd day of August 1905 a large concourse of peo ple, friends and relatives assembled at what is well known as the Keyes Ceme tery in Itawamba county, which has been the custom for a number of years to clean off the grave yard and pay the highest tribu'eof respect to those who sleep beneath the clay of the valley, from the infant to those who lived to old age, husband and wife for more than a quarter of a century walked the pith of life hand in hand, with mutual confidence trust and devotion.
