Shiloh National Military Park.
"Washington, D. C, October 2.
The Shiloh National Military Park
is in better condition than ever be
for and improvements are being 'con
stantly made, according to- the re
' port of the park commission whose
annual report has just been issued
by the war department. Of the
last annual appropriation of $25,
800 made by Congress for the gen
eral upkeep of the reservation, $3,
000 each was paid the three com
missioners as salaries, $3,000 was
paid De Long Rice, secretary and
superintendent, $900 was paid a
clerk, the total expenditures for sal
aries being $12,900. The remainder
was spent on running expenses.
The total area of the park is now
3,546.14 acres, with twenty-seven
miles of graded roads threading
them. The total number of build
ings on the property is forty. Bat
tie line tablets are being gradually
erected, at uresent there being 226
marking the Federal lines and 173
the Confederate lines.
In fact, so comprehensively and so
plainly have the Shiloh battle lines
been marked that the seeker after
history may start at the tablet where
the first volley was fired in the bat
tle of Shiloh and follow every move
ment of the divisions, brigades and
regiments thru all the evolutions of
the battle. In marking the lines
and in otherwise presenting in con
venient and permanent form facts
pertaining to the battle, according
to the report, and to the battlefield,
iron tablets have been placed accord
ing to the following classification
Battle-line tablets, 399; camp-site
tablets, 83; historical tablets, 24;
headquarters tablets, 12; mortuary
tablets, 6; general explanatory tab
lets, 257; total, 780.
Ib the general improvement of the
park, 250 cannons have been mount
ed on iron carriages and placed so
as to designate the positions of ar
tillery at the various stages of the
battle.
At the latest encampment of the
department of Michigan G. A. R., a
resolution was adopted, calling up
on the Legislature of that State to
appropriate a fund for the erection
of a monument to the memory of the
Michigan soldiers of the Twelfth and
Fifteenth regiments that fell at Shi
loh. The war department recently
granted the request of the United
Daughters of the Confederacy for a
site for a splendid monument to Con
federate soldiers who fought at Shi
loh. The 137 monuments of all classes
now in the park, are as follows: Il
linois, 1 State, 39 regimental; In
diana, 22 regimental; Iowa, 1 State,
2 regimental; Minnesota, 1 regi
mental; Ohio, 34 regimental; Penn
sylvania, 1 regimental; Wisconsin', 1
State, 1 individual; United States
regular troops, 3 regimental; Ala
bama, 1 State; Louisiana, 1 regi
mental; Tennessee, 1 regimental;
headquarters, 13; mortuary, 5. "

Wants Island Number 8.
A New York syndicate, so we are
informed, is trying to buy the whole
of Island No. 8, a fine tract of land
several miles below Hickman and in
Fulton County. The island contains
something like 5,000 acres, on which
is yet considerable valuable lumber.
Just what the New Yorker's expects
to do with this land, if they buy it,
a matter for speculation, but the
consensus of opinion is that it would
be converted into a big plantation.

largest Man on World's Eecords.
"The largest man on 'record was
Miles Darden, a native of North
Carolina, who was born in 1798, and
who died in Tennessee in 1857. He
was 7 feet and 6 inches high and in
1845 weighed 872 pounds. At his
death he weighed a little over 1,000
pounds.
'In 1839 his coat was buttoned
around three men, each of them
weighing over 200 pounds, who
walked together in it across the
square at Lexington. In 1850, it
required 12 yards of cloth, one!
yard wide, to make him a coat. Un
til 1853 he was active and lively and
able to bear labor, but from that
time was compelled to stay at home
or be hauled about in a two-horse
wagon.
His coffin was 8 feet long, 35
inches deep, 32 inches across the
breast, 18 Inches across the head and
4 inches across the feet. It re
quired 24 yards of black velvet to
cover the sides and lid of the coffin,
"Miles Darden was twice married,
and his' children are very large.
though it is probable that none of
them will ever attain the gigantic
weight and size of their father."
Editors note The foregoing story
was taken from the. records of the
State of North Carolina, and pub
lished in an exchange that comes to
this table. The item is of peculiar
interest to the editor, for the reason
that he has heard his mother speak
frequently of Mr. Darden, who for
many years was her close neighbor
in West Tennessee. Accordine to
mother's statement, Mr. Darden re
fused to be weighed in his latter
years, and his exact weight was not
known ; but he weighed more than
800 pounds when he last went upon
the scales. His neighbors, deter
mined to learn his exact weight a
short time before he died, marked
the springs of a hack in which he
rode. They then filled the hack with
heavy irons until the springs reach
ed the marks, and weighed the irons.
The irons weighed something over
1,000 pounds. Lowry's Honey
