BULLET IN ARM MORE THAN 50 YEARS In the war between the North and the South, 1861-65, Coleridge township Randolph county, furnished one Hiram P. Gardner, and while he was serving his country at the battle of Bristow Station in the State of Virginia, on the 14th day of October, 1863, just two days before he was 20 years old, he was shot in the left elbow. The ball that caused this wound has re mained in this arm for just 52 years, one month and 17 days, it having come out on the 1st day of December of its own accord. Mi. Gardner now has this bullet and it could not be bought for any price. The bullet weighs a heavy half ounce. When it went into the arm it hit the bone and shows very plainly the battered part, of the ball that hit the bone. From this in jured bone this arm has hurt and dis charged pus all the time for more than 50 years, and at times this wound would give ext.vsme pain and trouble, and this writer hua at various times had to lance this arm, but Mr. Gard ner would never consent to an opera tion, though often advised. The pain this old soldier has stood hc been something fearful, besides having a stiff arm. Yet we find, him cheerful and he has made a splendid living, a most excellent citizen, and has raised a large and respectable family. Its truly wonderful what these old sol diers have stood, yet we in out? com forts and pleasures are heard to com plain more than they. ROBERT L. CAVENESS, M. D. Coleridge, N. C.
