We tlnn had to lay out in the rock
houses in the mountains until (leneral
Rosecrans run them aeross Tennossoe
River. We suffered no little as we dare
not have any tire which wis two or
three months. Sometimes wo would
show our-iel v to somo old I'nion men
but tint i.ft 'ii for men in those days
were so W Id that if a sereeehowl popped
its teeth tbev would sw ar It was a can
bursted, and then a general slam pi d"
took took place.' One night I thought
I would have so'iio tun with my broth
er, Hiram Curtis. Ilo then lived on
the mountain where James Campbell
now lives and tiad hurt bis knee and it
was stiff. 1 know be was at hoim that
night a;id his house Ktood in a corn
patch and the stalks wore dry. lie had
-a big liu'lit in tbo house and was lyinir
out to koep out of the rebel army so 1
went up tamping tbo ground and slam
ming tho rails of the fence. Of course
ho broke through tho field gathering
tbo stalks with that stiff leg and run off
some half mile before we could cluck
him. We then agreed to never surprise
oiiPiiuollier ajain as I had got even
with him. Hiram and Jerry I'rvorthen
lit nut for the Yankees t.brouih Ken
lucky. I start"d to pilot somo con
scripts through, and we alsi went to
Kentucky. Two wooks after Curtis and
I'ryor left, wo crossed the Cumberland
River at Roeny, while they crossed at
Sinners t. Gon. Wlinoler run into
Somerset and captured a Kentucky
retrimont that was mnkin? up there and
Curtis andl'ryor went to L -bnnoti, K'y.
Andrew llarrfs and I went there. As
we entered we found the people mighty
confused on account of Col lliki its' Otli
Ky. Infantry federals having to leave
to beat Wheeler. As we bi-gan to
tramp th" street I saw my brotbor and
I'ryor Blinding on the street talking
somo hundred yards ahead of us. The

His eyes sparkled at me and soon be

laughing and play ng cards. Presently
the Imirle sounded for us to saddle horv

away we went twelve or fifteen miles
nearly east of Murtreefchoro to rescue

while and six hundred Johnnies on a
raid came by there to burn the place,
but they got some of their number kill
ed and wounded. Lieutenant I.ryson
of Rattle Creek was in command of our

command of tie Johnnies. They left
without humiiitr anything. Wo had
two stockades there. Carter and Cha

j-jave written eulogistic poems about the man with the hoe, and the man behind the pick, and I would say that any
man, who is honest and treats his fellow men right and earns his living either by mental or physical labor is worthy
of all the praise that has ever been showered upon him. If the man behind the counter is honest and truthful, and
does not resort to the tricks of trade, he commands the respect and confidence of all good people, and in order to do
this, it is necessary for him to always make low prices and be careful about what he says to his customers in regard
to the articles of merchandise that he offers for sale. I believe a storekeeper should have-some profit on every ar
tide of merchandise that he sells. I do not believe in making leaders of some kinds of goods by offering them below
cost and trying to get exorbitant prices for other kinds, simply because people do not know the value of them so well.
And I do not believe in giving PREMIUMS to customers and then adding a large profit to pay for the PREMIUMS that
have been given them. Most people are aware of the fact that some storekeepers employ this means of obtaining
trade. I believe in handling all kinds of merchandise at a small profit, and having one price to all, so that the cus
tomer who is not an expert judge of the value of some kinds of goods can buy them as cheaply as any other customer.
Experience has taught me that low prices are the best advertisement that any storekeeper could adopt, but they have
to be used in connection with the newspaper or circular in order to cause the BARGAINS to be distributed in a SATIS
FACTORY MANNER. All who favor me with their patronage can depend on getting the best quality of goods that
a given price will buy. Eelow I quote prices of as much of my stock as space will admit:
