ni- When Captain l. N. ea returned
il from the re-union of Confederate Vet

brouight with hlin a Iminatre cannon,
nI. made from two old can1onse which
lit were tsed in the late war-one on the
or I'dcderal, and the other on the Confed
,n erate side. The Federal canpou was
li- manufactured by the Aires M'n'fg.
is Co , of Philadelphia, in 1845; tie Con
federate cannon was manufactured by
ek the Leeds Company. of New Orleans,
id in 1862. l'hese two old pieces were
recently melted together, and out of
the metal was made the little souvenir
icannons. one of which was presented
ato Captain lies, who seemed very
proud of it. The Captain was In high
spirite over his trip and had some in
e- teresting anecdotes to tell.
r. Five of our prominent citizens,
g. Messrs. F. X. Ransdell, E J. lamlnley,
id l'hil McGuire, J. W. Dunu and Jas. S.
," Millikin, misteriously disappeared on
t. the Julla last Saturday on their way
iup the river. Where they went we
don't know, but it is surmised that
they went on railroad business; and if
they did and have accomplished any
thing, it will come out after a while.
We hope that the gentlemen were suc
cessful in the business that carried
them off. 'T'hey are back. It comes
o to us, however, and from good au
o thority, that tlake Providence will
" have a road rtunning westward some
s time in the near future, and that work
Son it will not be delayed very much
longer. The men interested in the
'road lmean business, and we have no
doubt that the whistle of the locomo.
Sive will be heard in the land ere long.
Te hese gentlemen deserve success, and
it is gratifying to know that they are
' going to meet with it at last.
Spencer Fulgum, the mail carrier,

a river. Lie had to walk some distance
o before he could borrow a skiff to
º come over with the mail. This was
the reason that made bim later than

Col. Quaay was in bright and early

disease is so mild that there is no dan

When boys and girls, Vho are
almost grown, disturb church wor

the minister would rebuke them, it a
would put a stop to these low acts.

A mong the pleasant reminiscences
of the recent Confederate re-union at
Louisville, which our East Carroll
veterans brought back with lhem, was
the following one, related by Cap!ntin
Rea, and which savors of the romantic:
In the City of Louisville there resides
an old lady friend of the Captain, who
heard, during the recent war with
Spain, that he was sick in the hospital
near Santiago. Feeling a great inter
esa in his welfare, by reason of their
old friendship, she wros to the War
i)epartment at Washipgton, asking
the authorities to make inquiry into
the matter, and to ascertain, if possi
ble, whether or not Captain Rea was a
soldier in Cuba, and if he was sick
near Santiago. The authorities at
Washington corresponded 'with the
auihorities in Cuba, who made the
necessary inquiry and wrote back that.
a Captain lea was not in the army of
e Cuba. These facts were forwarded to
a the old lady in Louisville, and the
s Captain had the pleasure of reading
1 them during his visit to Louisville,
I which. no doubt, must have pro
s I duced on him a profound impres
sion of the good lady.' friend
aship and solicitude for him. Cap
tain Rea was a gallant Confeder.
ate soldier. 'The editor and he have
diflered somewhat on political ques
tions from time to time, but be has
never hesitated to render praise where
Spraise is doe-narnely, for the gallant
(deeds of a young officer, who, at the
age of nineteen, was raised to the
rank ol Captain. The old spirit is
still there, and to-day Captain lRea
would answer to his country's call as
readily as he did thirty-odd years ago,
and would fight as gallantly for the
Stars and Stripes as he did beneath
the nunpotted folds of the UIed Cross
flag of the Confederacy.
