appreciative people, and I feel I am
stronger and a better man because of
the eight days at Union City. We
were greatly pleased on Friday night at

Une of tne most pleasant experiences
there was speaking to about 800 pupils
in four different public schools. Ben
Cox in Weakly County Press,
v In Memory of R. T. Maupin.
Mr. Editor: I was requested long
ago to write something about this
good citizen and great soldier, but
have seen nothing; hence this scrib
ble. I am now in my 84th year, al
most blind, and my hand is shaky.
About 83 or 84 years ago, God gave
to this country, and to this people,
R. T. (Bob) Maupin to serve it in
its highest and best interest, and af
ter he had proven himself faithful
and true, he, died. He was a good
citizen,' he was a good neighbor, he
was a good soldier He was a hero.
He was a man. But now he is sleep
ing in the arms of his mother, and
the turf is smooth above him. The
rain will moisten its roots and sum
mon back the perishing life of its
green bladed grass, and the crushed
flower will lift its head again, smil
ing unto heaven. His form is now
before me, with no trace of death in
its fine lineaments, and there i3 faint
crimson on his faded old face. I can
feel the last grip of his hand, and
hear his last "Goodbye, Tom," dis
tinctly, like a living, breathing thing,
even when I know he is with the
dead and the damp earth hides him,
I would not think of him otherwise.
His image lives within my memory
as ha seemed before he rested nobly,
with weariness and trials' of life,
smiling on while poison mingled with
his springs of life, and wearing a calm
brow, while in his heart anguish was
resting like a hand of fire, until at
last the agony of thought grew un
bearable and the sufferer died. Let
him rest; let him sleep; and oh, may
the clods lie lightly on him.
