ir Journal, Sir:
hiZ one of the survivors of the 9th
t. N. J. Vols, arid a subscriber to
v ur breezy little paper, the New Bern
Weekly Journal, and one that invaded
vnnrcitv on that memorable 17th day
of May, 1905, a day thatcanr.ot be for-
cotten by any Jersey man wno paruci-
Dated in the affair, the reepfcon in
the eveninit at the court house, and at
the Camp of U..'C V., and by the
Daughters of thevConfederacy, and the
next dav. 18th. the inarch to the Ceme
tery, Yank and Confed marching side
by side, and the unveili-g of the monu
ment erected to our brave boys who
fell in battle, all so grand that it is al
most indiscribablo. I felt that I would
like to stay with you a while. 1 hve
been very much interested in your
uaner and always read it eve'y night
before retiring, the reports from your
correspondents from, localities where 1
used to be somewhat : acquainted" 40
years ago.. In the afternoon afttr the
unveiling of the mor.uncent I boarded
the train for Beaufort, but things have
tfhnnped so. that there is not many
that look as thev (fid in time of
the war, the old battle ground but very
little remains to show there ever was a
battle fought there, the foundation of
the old block-house at Havelock is sun
visible, the old covered bridge across
the stream there, has given way to a
treaHa. While mv Company was on
duty at the block-house, guarding the
old covered bridge, I used to spend a
good portion of my time with hook and
line, and many a pike I have landed
from the stream, about a mile down
the stream was an old mill and a family
lived there by the name of Guthrie,
who had two sons about 20 years of
age, I wonder if they are still living?
The next place of interest was Newport
grown from S small houses to quite a
town, Newport Creek looked quite
natural Newport Barracks, the re
mains of the okl Fort showed quite
plainly, there used to be families lived
there at that time by the name of
Jones and BelL Carolina City came
next, and. when I looked across the
smooth waters of Bogue Sound, how
fresh the memory came back to me, of
the days wnen I used to spend my time
fishing and clamming in its waters.
old bouses to a city of considerable size
I next went across to Beaufort and
i reeietsred-at Mrs. Davis' Hotel for the
night, after supper in company with
Mr. Oscar Newkirk, we started out to
take in the sights of the place by moon
lieht. we Btarted for the boardwalk
alone the sound down to the' line be
tween the old town and the new, took
in the siehts of Mr. Derr's residence
along the sound which is a very nice
one. Mr. Derr was an engineer on the
road between Morehead City and New
' Bern in time of the warj and by the
way a Jeiseyman, then to the old jail
which looked very natural, also, the
Baptist church, then out to the suburbs
to the scrubbushes where we use! to
catch the mocking birds. In 1862after
the fall of Fort Macon our company (I)
done provost duty in the town, while
on duty there, our company under com
mand Qf captain Hufty went to Swans-
boro on a sail boat under nag of truce,
to take into the Confederate lines, a
Confederate Lieutenant from Beaufort
and I think his name was Mansfield.
The boat was piloted up the sound to
Swansboro by a citizen of Beaufort,
which I was fortunate enough to find on
my trip to Beaufort The building we
- were quartered in on Front street, I
see is torn down, and some of the old
lumber still lying in the yard, and the
old market house which stood in the
middle of the street has also disappear
ed. There was a butcher occupied a
stand in it by the name of Hartman.
In going from New Bern to Beaufort
on the train, I entered into eonversa
tion with a gentleman (I did not learn
his name) I think he lives in Morehead
City, he had a white potato patch which
he pointed out to me close to Morehead
he asked me what kind of grass seed
would be best to sow in a poultry yard.
I told him orchard grass, I think if he
sees this he will remember thecircum-
stances. I would like to have bis name
and address. In travelling through your
State last spring I saw that your farm
ers are up-to-date with their farming
and I expect they are now getting ready
for next years work.. In reading your
Daner I have become very much inter.
ested in the way they have controlled
the cotton market this year, and I
think the way they are getting organ
ized they will hold the cotton market in
their own hands and reap the reward
themselves, instead of those who never
,v a cotton plant grow. We have had
i ,.j winter up here, we have had plenty
r rain, but no snow or ice, it has been
all winter, and the farmers are
i g their hot houses ready, for
g their seed. The acreage for
j tomatoes this year will be about
. . !' rl lanrer than last year. With

A colored boy was drowned across
the river from here last Saturday af
ternoon. The boy and some colored
men were rafting logs for Captain
Whitehurst Lee, and the men got wet
and went across the creek to warm by
fire they had made. Some one oi
the crowd told the boy to come over to
the fire, and he staited across the logs,
which were not fastened together and
he missed and fell between them. The
men on the other side of the creek went
search of their lost companion and
found his cap on the togs and tney

went to work at once and recovered his
body, which was taken home. We

In Memory of W. B. Lane
Dear friend, oh we miss thee, through
the long and weary days,
And when the eveniiur shadows into
darkness fade away:
We think of thee, whose nobl love, so
beautiful and so free,
Forever with immortality must be.
Oh. God make us lust what thou
wouldst have us be,
As we lift up to thee, an humble prayer
from sin to be free.
We are still on life's rugged voyage,
we miss thy genial presence to
We miss thy pleasant companionship,
so tender and so dear,
Oh, why hast thou left us, with nothing
to cheer, but tender memories of
the past,
Can I ever forget, when last we met,
little we thought 'twa the last
flh. could we. we would not call thee
back, fhou art gone to receive thy
ricn reward;.
Tis sweet to lie down, with a harvest
almost reaped,
Only to awake, in the tresence of the
Life without thee is like day without
Bereft, indeed, are we, never to know
thy beautiful life, on earth again,
But I'll ever cherish the memory of
thy wise counsels, in happier days
That when I close my eyes in death,
I'll meet thee in heaven.
A Friend.
A rather sensational episode occurred
here here yesterday afternoon in the
marriage of a supposed ebping couple.
The couple whose names appeared on
the license as A.. S. Monaco and Ruth
Thomas of Norfolk called at the Chi 1 1
church rectory to "be married. Rev,
Williams suspecting all was not right
went to the hotel where they were said
to have registered and found that they
tered as man and wife. Thinking that i
thev would doubtless apply to some
other minister he called up Rev. W. A.
AyeM as the one next possible who the
couple would go to. He was none too
quick for he found that Mr. Ay era was
just about to perform the ceremony.
Mr. Ayeis acting upon the suggestion
from Rev. Williams, also refused to
make them man and wif. . It is stated
that the couple then hunted up a jus
tice of the peace and they were mar
ried. There was no particular reason
why the ceremony should not have
been performed in the first placo, but
circumstances indicated so , much that
was not right that tho ministers felt
justified in refusing to serve in their
official capacity.; '
The woman was strikingly handsome,
an3 apparently 30 to 35 years of age.
She said she had been a idow about
six months. - ' . v -

Wake County Cotton Association
. . Meeting. ,
Special to Journal. . -
Raleigh, Feb. a. The cotton grow-
ers of this county today effected a
strong organization. The feature of
their meeting was an address by Gov
ernor Glenn, who told them they did
not sufficiently esteem themselves. He
warned them against leaving the farm
for the town, gave especial warning
against their arch enemy, the speculat
or, and called for the thorough organi
zation which alone is able to fight him.
He said that if the cotton organization
was a trust it was a good one, which
meant a fair and legitimate profit; a
trust which will give them a roof,
clothes, and more bread. ; He called on
all to loin and none to .desert. The
warehouse plan was strongly endorsed.
Pres. C C Moore of the State Asso
ciation followed, ,The convention en
dorsed Senator Overman's bill; declared
tor 10 per cent reduction of acreag

Terrible Suffering! of a Young Lad Retultlnf
From Serlout rracturo.
Two weeks ago, master Isaac, the
fourteen year bid son of ex-chief of
police, James Lewis, fell "from a fence
while playing with his sister and broke
both bones of bis arm. The injury, it
was thoutrht was healing as .well as
could be expected of Buth a severe ac'
cident, but yesterday the boy's condi
tion became" much worse. -It ws
found on examining the broken arm
that it would have' to be broken again
and re-set a condition that sometimes
occurs in surgery. But the worst fea
ture of the case-was that symptoms of
lockjaw were manifesting themselves.
Dr. Duguid, who has the case in charge
quickly administered anti-toxin serum
I he only known remedy for tetanus.
The boy had suffered several convul
sions but after the medicine began to
have effect he appeared a little more
quiet. While there are many and
grave tears for the boy his condition
last evening was such that friends had
slight hopes that' he would recover.
Lockjaw resulting from a broken arm
is of very rare occurrence, and the case
is therefore very peculiar.
