at early dawn and at 3 oclock on the 20th caught up with him and a fight ensued While it was in progress Lieut Col Adams was sent with his regiment to take position on the only road by which Morgan could escape Morgan retired to a high bluff and there re ceived a flag of truce from Shackelford demanding his surrender which was accepted by all bnt about 600 who with Morgan started at once on their way Gen Shackelford now called for 1000 men from his oommand with theI best horses who would stay In their saddles as long as he would without eating or sleeping until they captured Morgan But only 500 horses could be found fit for the enterprise Col Capron with 159 add Col Wolford with detachments of all the regiments made up the column which started in immediate pursuit The hardest ride on record now began This chase began on the morning of the 21st and continued day and night until the evening 9t the 24th when Capt Ward came upon Morgans rearguard Morgan made a stand a mile further east in a dense wood Shack elford formed a line of battle and Morgan retreated two miles further on crossiug a stream burning the bridges behind him All through Friday night pursuers and pursued clung to their jaded and famishing horses which could hardly be urged out of a walk Daylight dawned upon both columns moving upon parallel roads a mile from Ateens halt mile beyond the road formed a Junction Sbackelford pressed on and gained itfirst Morgan turned back and sought refuge in the woods Maj Way joined Shackleford with fresh horses After doubling upon his track and practicing every ruse known to the skillful raiders Morgan surrendered to Gen Shackel with the remainder of his command on July 25th When Morgan found that captureI was inevitable he surrendered first to a militiacaptain with whom he was riding and who overjoyed at the pros peels ot capturing Gen Morgan offer ed him any terms he might name promising to parole the entire com mand Shackelford declined to ac knowledge the right of the militiamen and took his prisoners to Cincinnati where Gen Burnside sent the satiate men to prison and the officers to t penitentiary at Columbus Ohio Morgans men who were not captured were collected by Col Johnson and Grigsby and marched through western Virginia to Morristown Tennessee where they joined the command of thetit own thoughts of the prls oners naturally

belonging to Morgans command to report to him at Morristown Many had been left behind when the Ohio raid was undertaken on account of disability to make the trip and others had been sent off in detachments while passing through Kentucky and found their way back to the confederate lines These were collected and organized under Kilpatrlc and Dartcb with the understanding that if Morgan should ever gain his liberty they should be transferred to him These detachments took part under Gen Forrest in the battle of Chickamauga In March IBM Gen Morgan was sent to take command of the district of Soueh western Virginia including a portion of east Tennessee- In May Morgan organized his com mand for a raids into Kentucky His division consisted of three brigades 1800 The column reached Pound Gap on June 2d and captured a small party of union cavalry pushing rapidly toward Mt Sterling The town was easily captured and Morgan pushed forward to Lexington Gen Bur bridge in command of the district of Kentucky was absent on an expedi tion against the Salt Works In West Va He entered Lexington without opposition burnt the Government depst and captured sufficient horses to remount all his dismounted men Col Glltner who was hit at Mt Sterling had a severe fight in which the Union loss was 14 officers and forty privates killed 80 severely wounded and over 100 captured From Lexington Morgan moved through Georgetown to Cynthlana where after a short en gagement a garrison of 400 strong sur rendered Gen Hobson in command of 1500 men on his way by cars to reo ntorce the garrison was met by Gilt and held until the arrival of Mor gan when his entire force was captur ed Returning to his old headquarte- at Ablngdon Va Morgan collected a force of 1600 men and on the 28th of August set out for Jonesboro to assume command in person for an expedition against Gen Glllems cavalry division then posted at Bulls Gap Reaching Greenyllle at night he went iatocam heMorgan stopped at the house of Mrs Williams A daughter 1nlaw of M Williams an ardent Union determined to apprise Gen Glllem of the presence of Mrogan and the pos ilea of his forces This she did rdln through the confederate lines and on through the darkness to Gillems cam ten miles distant where she at one communicated with that officer who lost no time in putting his command motion for Greenville Leavt Bulls Gap at midnight he reached the vicinity of the town before daybreak and his men being thoroughly ce vesant with the topography of t country he succeeded in eluding Mot gana pickets and the first notification the latter had of their presence was given by a party of 100 cavalrymen who dashed into Greenville followed by Gillems whole force It was the party that came in first which rode at once to Mrs Williams house M Garrett of his staff and Gen loots left the house together and sought to make their escape but every avenue v as cut off Taking refuge in the gar den of the house Morgan was shot through tho heart Withthc death of their leader this sketch of the cavalry which bore his name will close The long lines of railroad connecting the army os the Cumberland with Louisville its base of suppllse were the lawful prey of the daring leader and his rough riders while many an outpost slumbering In fancied securety were awakened at very early hours by his summons to surrender The rapid Ity of his movements the boldness of his attacks and the audacity of his raids will long render his name a household word in his native State TIlE END BOYS WHO SUCCEED Those who generally succeed in their undertakings are the ones who stick persistently at any task they undertake The youth who stinks at his studies or at his trade until he masters the problems before him is the one who makes the best scholar and the best trades man and who succeeds in his conflict in the outside world Neither are the best workers always those who possess the greatest strength of body and mind or the best op portunities These qualities are unquestionably an advantage but neither of them is a necessity to those who have the spirit and grit and pluck to achieve great results Some of the best work of the most distinguished persons has been done while thoy have been in feeble health and strength and have had to atuggle against those prostrating influences Many whom the world deem great have not been able to work long at a timeTheir greatest deeds have often been accomplished by their having a single aim and by putting into force every ounce of strength and every hour of time they were able to work into the tasks set before them Such never scattered their energies but kept steadily at work in spite of continued illhealth and of long intervals of semiin validism Some of these did great and enduring work and left the impression upon the world of sessing extraordinary energy an working capacity Success is rare ly a matter of accident but always one of character The reason that so many fail is that so few are willing to pay the price of selfde nial and hard work which success exacts Therefore our boy should always bear in mind the it is the one who sticks persistant ly at the work in hand and no the one who scatters his brains and efforts at every whiff of the wind or listens to the idle talk of silly companions who succeeds Ex QUITS HIS PARTY New Orleans La July 30Dr- H D

TAKE ME BACK TO OLD KENTUCKY Take me back to old Kentucky Where the crystal waters glint As they dance along their borders Through the fragrant brds of mint Where the lasses and the horses Are but terms of grace il speed And the whiskey and the satesmen Both are noted for their bead Take me back to old Kentucky Where strong waters flow so free Where they cool oft In the summer heath the spreading julep tree Where the high balls and low balls t Always hit the center square And you never have next morning Rheumatism in your hair Take me back to old Kentucky Where the blue grass decks the hills Where they have no use for water Save for operating mills For they scorn it as a beverage On that dark and bloody ground As they claim ore since the Deluge That It taste of sinners drowned Take me hoes to old Kentucky- To the State where I was born Where corn Is full of kernels And the Colonels full of corn Where to disapprove that beverage- Is to toy with sudden death And they have a bonded warehsuse Where they barrel up their breath Tako me back to old Kentucky Let me hear the pistol pop See the pigs and politicians With their snouts eyes deep in slop Take me back to those blue mountains Where they argue points with lead But you neednt rush the matter Take me back whem I am dead From the Paris Kentucky Gazette PLEA FOR THE CHEERFUL There Isnt anything in the world more

College Hearin g IIthe close of the college year the College baseball team was met by eight different teams and as many times off a victory Tho hardest gam of the season was between Kentucky

inrharm to the association and harm to that community From what we can learn whisky was the foundation of the troubles but unfortunately some good men men who respect the law loye their country and pride in their community were made parties to the trouble in their efforts to suppress it We are not in position to make a foil statement for the reason that we have not received howa ever a investigation has been made As we hear It a young man Sullivan began firing his pistol the Marshals resistedyand his father and two or three of his brothers aided him The President of the association Mr Selby and the jailer Mr Holt also sought to restore order and they were knocked down and bruised considerably About that time the shooting took place several engaging in the firing resulting in the wounding of two of the Sullivan boys It is stated that Mr Selby after being felled to the ground opened fire on his assailant and that the ball took effect in one of the Sullivan boys The young men
