T. J. Finley Aged Vetran.
(From Amarillo Panhandle)
Thomas J. Finley, a veteran of
both the Mexican and the Civil wars,
arrived in Amarillo yesterday, ac-
companied by his son, Thomas Fin-
ley, Jr., and will spend a week or
two with hie daughter, Mrs. J. B.
Kerr, at 1405 Harrison street. Mr.
Finley resides at Celina, In Collin
county, and has been a resident of
that county for the past 43 years
He is a- man well kept for one of
his years and although but few of
the friends of his early days are left
he seems to get much enjoyment out
of life and spends much of his time
in looking after his extensive farm-
ing interests in North Texas.
His mental faculties are extra well
preserved and he talks interestingly
of h’s experience in the two great
warB in which he took an active part.
So far as Mr. Finley knows, there
are just three men now living who
went to Mexico in his company sixty-
seven years ago. The others are I.
Cooper of Alexandria, Tenn., from
whom Mr. Finley received a letter
within the past week, and Mr. Ad-
kins, of Cane Hill, Cedar county, Mo.
Mr. Finley was born at Alexandria,
In middle Tennessee, on June 29,
1823, and left for Mexico about
June 4, 1846. He was at the cap-
ture of Vera Cruz and remembers
many of the Interesting incidents
that occurred there before and after
the capture. He can describe the
wall about the city, the fortifications
in the streets, the position of the ar-
tillery, etc. He went out with the
first Tennessee cavalry and was out
about a year. His regiment waB in
chu;ge of Colonel Jonas E. Thomas
and Lieutenant R. D. Allison. Lieu-
tenant Allison; lster Colonel Allison,
died a few years ago at McKinney,
Mr. Finley was a member of a
troop of cavalry scouts in the Civil
war and was again under Colonel
Allison, of whom he speaks very
highly as a commanding officer. Mr.
Finley was captured and spent more
than twelve long wearv months in
the federal prison at Rock Island,
111. While there he received a com-
plete suit of jeans whicH Mrs. Finley
had made with her own hands and
sent to him.
Speaking of an incident that oc-
curred the day following the capture
of Vera Cruz, when he divided hia
meat with a hungry Mexican, Mr.
Finley says he thought to himself,
“we were killing you yesterday and
today wo are trying to save your
Continuing along this line in con-
nection with the Civil war, he said,
“That is the way with men in both
armies in my experience. I was
treated by northern men as kindly
as if I had been a northern soldier.”
He had a good word for many of
the Mexicans and told of the splen-
did treatment received by some of
his comrades when they fell into the
hands of the Mexicans.
He reads the newspapers without
glasses and keeps posted on the cur-
rent events of the day. He doubts
If the Mexicans will ever be able to
settle their dissension without the
interference of the United States.
He travels quite 'extensively and
handles his own correspondence.
Last Christmas he visited in his na-
tive sta*e of Tennessee and he was
back there again this summer at the
time of the reunion at Chattanooga.
He has traveled In about thirty
states, has had but little sickness
■ending her some very fine peaches,
and Mrs. Duer sent a few to thia
office, and this editor’s blggeat molar
soon crashed through ’om. Much
obliged, Mrs. Duer for making this
good editor “come across;” you
served him just right. But editors
always and upon all occasions, do
right if you will but let ’em.
Good Reason for His Enthusiasm.
V hen a man has suffered for sev-
eral days with colic, diarrhoea or
other form of bowel complaint and
is then curfid sound and well by one
or two doses of Chamberlain’s Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, as
is often the case, It Is but natural
that he should be enthusiastic in his
pralRe of the remedy, and especially
In Ihia case of a severe attack when
life Is threatened. Try it when in
need of such u remedy, it never
falls. Sold by all dealers.
