BILL ARP'S OLD AGE.
jtóvThe papers lately have contained a deal about the
decline of "Bill Arp," the famous Georgian.
. Smith has passed his three score and ten years
I is rapidly nearing his fourth score year, and it
P'l be unnatural for him 10 retain all his mental
physical virility longer, but he still writes good
«sttcrs and the writer is one of thousands of busy peo-
Ie who are still glad to read them, and who always
viH take a keenñnterest in whatever the dear old man
loes and says.
The South loves Bill Arp. He has done as much or
than any one man to preserve its sacred tradi-
tions, and to hand them dpwn to us unsullied, and he
turned many a poisoned shaft aside which was
iously aimed at the Southern heart. We want
to say this as we earnestly feel, before nature shall
have had its way with him. We want him to know
While still with us that he will be wept, honored and
by loyal lips and hearts when he shall have gone
W before to lead the silent way. •
His son, Mr. Carl Smith, who is one of the diiectors
I and a prominent official of the Mbxican National rail-
way, has recently returned from a visit to his father
in Georgia r.nd states in an interview:
'My father, despite his advanced age—he is "v.ver 77
uars old—stili retains his 111 titJ fatuities unimpaired
I and is as spr\ as many a nun ten years his junvor. He
«till continues to be the omnivorous' student of his
younger days; he reads everything he can get hold of,
at does very little writing now. He is constantly vis-
| Jted by prominent literary men from all portions of
country, and takes great delight in meeting these

' Let's see. Mr. Carnegie wants to get rid of
money. The people of the province of Kwang Sig
China, are dying daily by thousands of starvation, and
those who remain are devouring each other. Mr. Car-
negie's income alone, wiithout touching his capital,
would absolutely prevent all that suffering and death.
just where do you want to build yoúr monument, Mr.
Carnegie ? In the world's heart or in its head ?
The New York papers stated that one of the city's
numerous arrny of embezzlers claimed as a plea in his
defense that he was a descendant of General Sam
Houston of Texas. One of the general's grandsons
is an employe of the Rein Litho company, of Orange,
and he immediately wrote to the parties who were,
prosecuting the New York thief disclaiming any know-
ledge of him. Preston Morrow, the writer of the
letter, said with dry humor that some of bis grand-
father's descendants "might deserve to be in the pen-
itentiary but none of them have been caught yet."
The question of the hour: "D¡Jd you clean up
Money grows on trees in Orange county,
have only to change it into shape for spending.
We should think for their own protection and the
health of their family everybody would "clean up."
There re a good and effectual way to prevent a wo-
man having the last word—shout it quick then hang
«P the receiver.
We'd rather say a good word for our town and be
- laughed at by fools than to knock the town and have
good people hating us. , —-r——'-'~r
! Captain Gordon, son of the famous General John
B., is mysteriously missing. There is a mystery about
I the captain,... anyhow, which causes the public much
friendly, but curious, anxiety.
The appointment of T. J. Anderson to be general pas-
senger agent of the Southern Pacific railroad proves
generally satisfactory in the territory of that system.
It may not he the public's particular business who the
head officers of this or any other corporation are. but
we should think it would be agreeable to the officials
themselves to be approved by the people, and it cer-
tainly is better for all business, both public and private,
to have cordial-relations with the general community.
There is no better railroad man anywhere that Thom-
as J. Anderson, and he will prove himself the right
man in the fight place.
With Our Friends of the Press
The Texas newspapers pay taxes on $5,000,000
worth of property, and yet the libel laws of the State
make it dangerous for them to print the news, wonder-
ingly chortles the Lake Charles American.
The Athens Daily Review is the very latest addition
•¡o the "mosquito fleet" of journalism. It is a five col-
umn folio with a promise of growth in a good soil
and with proper cultivation. The Weekly Review,
the new daily's mother, is the prettiest paj>er in Texas
and that should l e an earnest of what the people of
Athens may expect from the new venture.

Swift, the Chicago packer, was engaged to Prince Kar-

ance and told the prince his mind in plain, vigorous

might well have been to the Swift. And how appro-
priate it would have been. A union of the grandson

Referring to contributions to the fund to enable
Texas to have an exhibit at the World's Fair, the Ath-
ens Daily Review puts it in a nutshell thus:
"Patriotism and sentiment should be sufficient to
warrant contributions to the cause; but outside of
these is the business part of the matter. It is simply
a proposition to advertise Texas and her resources to
the end that capital and population may be turned to-
wards her to develop her illimitable capabilities and
add millions to her wealth which would benefit every
citizen within her borders."

the American actress, that she must wear clothes on the

Of course Easterling would say this. But what
does he know about clothes ? I have seen him running

can hat on and he seemed to be scared half to death

Nelson Appleton Miles retires on ac-
count of the age limit on August 8,
in the consciousness of a duty faith-
fully performed In the faoe Of' many
obstacles that he, from time to timé,
found It a great difficulty to over-
come. No other man since the first
organisation or the American army
bears the proud distinction of having
risen step by step, from the position
of an enlisted man to the command of
General Miles was born afWwt-
minster, Mass., on August 8, 188 . He
was reared on his father's oountry es-
tate and attended the district school,
wheire he received an elementary ed-
ucation. He went to Boston in 1856
to take a position In a crockery store.
This position he held until the out-
break of she Civil war, when he en-
listed as a private In the volunteer
arnry raised for the defense of the
Union. While in Boston General
Miles mastered military science at a
school conducted by a French colonel.
M. Salignas, and his ambition led him
to organise a company of volunteers
with which he offered his services to
the United States. The members of
his company chose him as their cap-
tain, but he was thought to be too
young for this position and was given
the position of lieutenant, and from
this rank General Miles rose rapidly
until, on Aprly 5. 1890, he was major
general of volunteers.
General Miles saw severe aotlve ser-
vice during the seven days' lighting
on the peninsula of the James river,
and before Richmond in the summer
of 1862, and was severely wounded at
Fair Oaks. During the period be-
tween the Battle of Fair Oaks and
the change of Base to Harrison's
Landing. Miles acted as adjutant gen-
eral to the first brigade, first division.
Second army corps; but at Fred-
ericksburg he led his regiment, the
Sixty-first New York Volunteers. In
the battle of Chancellorsville bq was
so severely wounded that he was not
expected to recover, and was brevet-
ted brigadier general "for gallant and
meritorious services In the battle of
Chancellorsville;" and August 2. 1861,
was brevetted major general "for
highly meritorious and distinguished
conduct throughout the campaign and
particularly for gallant and valuable
services In the battle of Bean's Sta-
tion, Ta." He fought In all the hat-,
ties of the Army of the Potomac, with
one exception, up to the surrender of
Lee at Appomatox Court House, Va.
He was brevetted brigadier general
and major general, U. S. A., both dat-
ing March 2, 1867, the iter "for gal-
lant and meritorious services in the
battle of Spottsylvanla.'
After the close of the war. General
Miles, in command of his regiment.
-Mas employed in the Indian service,
and defeated the Cheyenne and Com-
anche' Indians on the borders of the
Staked Plains In 1871, and 'in 1876
broke up tbe hostile Bloux and other
tribes in Montana. His success in
warfare on tbe plains was so great
and so continuous that General Miles
became known as the "Indian Fight-
He drove the celebrated chief. Sit-
ting Bull across the Canadian fron-
tier and , dispersed extensive bands
led by Crazy Horse, Lame Deer, Spot-
ted Eagle, Broad Tail and other chiefs
well known In the far West. This
was in the years 1878-77, when the In-
dian outbreaks became general, the
cause being the disaffection of tbe
Dakota Slonx, of which Sitting Brill
was the principal chief. It was in
June, 1876, that General Ouster's par-
ty was defeated and massacred on the
Little Big Horn rlveT, an event which
was followed by the prompt and de-
clslve campaigns of General Miles.
In September. 1878. another out-
break. this thne on the part of the
Net Percas Indians under Chief Jo-
seph, was met by Miles and speedily
overcome, and in 1878 he captured a
party of Bannocks near Yellowstone.
But perhaps the most difficult cam-
paign was against the flata* chief,
Geronimo, of die hostile Apaches,
doubtless the moat bloodthirsty and
oruel Indians in «he whole of North
America. After Innumerable raids
and depredations on the part of the
Indians under this warMhe chief, the
government determined to haw .Get-
onlnMMtuppressed at any cost. An ex-
pedition was fitted out under Gen-
George Crook, early in 1886, but R
waa unsuccessful. Gen. Crook asked
to be relieved, and General Milss was
orders# to take his place.
Tbe result was that after one of
the longest and
ritory. In 1890-81 General Miles sup-
pressed a fresh outbreak among the
Sioux and Cheyenne . In 18M, under
orders of President Cleveland, he com-
manded the troops sent to Chicago
to suppress the serious rioting and
threatened rebellion which
there. This difficult duty he accom-
plished with the celerity and prompt-
noss which have always characterised
his obedience to the orders of his

the United States at the Jubilee cele-
bration in honor of Queen, Victoria in
London, and also vistted the seat of.
war between Turkey and Greece. On
the retirement of General 8chofleld
in 1896, General Miles became com
mender in chief of -the United Sutes

ington, D. C.
General Miles' career during the
SpanlsbrAmerlean war is of too re-
cent a date to need much comment.
President Roosevelt has definitely
announced that Major Gen. S. B. M.,
Young will take command of the army
on August 8,' when General Miles
sheathes his sword and hangs his
scabbard on the wall.
General Young has nerved in the,
army for 42 years having begun his
career in the Twelfth Pennsylvania
Infantry, when President Lincoln is-
sued his first call for voleuteers. How
be played bis part in the years that
followed Is sufficiently evidenced by
the official record, which «hews that
he was 'three times brevetted for gal*
lantry In action, and that be was mas-
tered out a few weeks after Appomat-
tox with the rank of ooiooel Al-
though he quit the volunteer service
with the eagles upon his shoulders,
in tbe following year Young entered
the regular army with the straps of
a second lieutenant -of infantry. A
few weeks later, however, the army
was re-orgaaiz*d,* and in recognition
of his war record, be was appointed
a captain of the Blgbth cavalry.
General Young went up through the
various grades both as a volunteer
during the Spanish-American war and

ary, 1801, President McfCinley ap-
