Under this act, any person who served fourteen days or participated in one
battle, in the War of 1812, is entitled to a Pension of $8 per month from date
of approval of act. Widows of such soldiers as have died after similar service,
no matter what was the time of marriage to the soldier, are entitled to the same
Pension. No other parties are entitled. All 1812 Pensioners dropped from the
Rolls because of alleged disloyalty are restored by this Act-. Application must
be executed before an officer of a court of record.
Saturday, Jan. 11, 1879
"Hon. J.I,. DUNCAN, Senator-elect from Gregg county, has been in attendance
on the County Court here, in the case of E.R. DAVIS vs. Ed MORE, and has challenged
the admiration of some of our ablest lawyers, by the display of his
talent and management of the case."
The above from the Sherman Courier of the 5th inst., goes to prove that
the voters of the 7th Senatorial District did not make a mistake in selecting
Col. Jno. M. DUNCAN to represent them in the State Senate. We predict for Mr.
DUNCAN a legislative career of both brilliancy and usefulness.
TOWN & COUNTY
- Muddy streets
- Some sleighing
- Slick weather, under foot
- Where's our school house?
- Five teachers and no school house
- How can teachers teach school profitable to their students and patrons
without a school house to teach in?
- We extend to Mr. P.E. KING, his nephew and niece, a cordial welcome to
our town. Mr. King is a success as a saloon keeper and always preserves good
order in his place of business.
- Our lawmakers have departed for Austin. We may expect the "Machine" to
be put in motion before our next issue. We will, with the aid of Col. DUNCAN
and Hon. B.W. BROWN, keep our people posted as to the working of the law factory.
- If the citizens of Longview had devoted more attention to providing
educational facilities, we might now number many of the best families of this
and adjoining counties as citizens. As it is, they have gone elsewhere to
educate their children.
- Another commercial change. Wm. BOYD has moved into the stand recently
occupied by the Co-operative Company. He will keep on hand a good assortment
of both Dry Goods and Groceries, which he proposes to sell low down, for cash
Here’s what’s next.
