About eighty-five survivors of the
different Confederate commands now
living in T.anveiiK county met in annual
reunion in this city last Saturday, and

in;' as secretary. Several matters
pertaining to the old soldiers' home
in Columbia and the State pension
appropriations were discussed as was
the proposition of completing the Con

discussions Col. Cuningham and sev
er;.! others took a part. It was a
matter of general regret that Judge

because of sickness in Iiis family, it
being the first reunion held in these
pans in many long years that he has
missed. At the conclusion of the meet
': Ing at the armory, the old soldiers, as
