hand a silver dollar, and as she did 
so, remarked, "I want to lie the first

want to establish the precedent which 
I hope you will follow,— to alwiys 
collect in advance." God bless that 
dear woman, may she live to read the

long a» we have anything to do 
with the publication of it we will 
see to it that the shall have the

example she has set ? 

Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Hughes were 
blessed a few days ago by the ad 
t of a bright eyed baby boy who 
de his appearance to bless th 
home. The proud father is mucl 
elated over the advent and thinks he 
can see a great Democratic states- 
man in the new born son, while the 
mother is as equally confident that 
her son will grow up to be a great 
Republican leader. We have not seen 
the new arrival, but are inclined to 
take the side of the mother.

Last Monday evening at 6:40 
o'clock death invaded the apart- 
ments of Senator Marcus A. 
Hanna in the Arlington hotel in 
Washington City and called from 
earth the spirit of him who was 
recognized by all to be the leader 
of the National Republican party. 

At the time of his death Sena- 
tor Hanna was serving his unex- 
pired term as senator from Ohio, 
and only. al out three weeks ago 
he was re-elected for the suc- 
ceeding term of six years by the 
largest majority that any man in 
Ohio ever received.

Marcus A. Hanna was born in 
Lisbon, O., Sept. 24, 1887, and 
when five years of age removed 
with his father's family to Cleve- 
land, where he spent the remain- 
der of his life, except when in 
Washington serving as a member 
of the United States Senate. 

While he was always un ardent 
Republican and u strong purty 
worker he never attempted to 
deliver a public address until in 
1897, when an effort was made by 
the Democrats to defeat him " 
his seat in the senate. 

In all his dealings Mr. Hanna 
was regarded by all to be per- 1 
fectly honest, and by good man- 
agement he had managed to ac- 
cumulate a snug fortune. 

The gold plank in the repub- 
lican platform of 189tt was cred- 
ited to Mr. Hanna, while the 
truth was that Mr. McKinley 
wrote it himself in the office of

I There are few who would gainsay 
the proposition that a bright young 
girl in her teens is the most attrac- 
tive object in the whole realm of 
nature. With the flush ot hope on 
her cheek, the gleam of intelligence 
in her eye, her springy, elastic step, 
her ringing, joyous laughter, she 
gpes forth to conquer. And it to 
these qualities is added the touch of 
ealtare that come from contact with 
educated people, the unmistakable 
touch of gentility and modesty too, 
it will be a wonder ; f society does 
not rench on its hands for her, ere 
she is ready to meet its exacting de-

If the parent— the mother— finds 
in the daughter the turning towards

When the editor ot this paper fir*t came to Bnrbourvi 
Republican newspaper we were confronted upon every side with the 
statement that every paper that had ever undertaken this field had only 
run a short time and quit, leaving the field and retreating in disorder, so 
that in this undertaking we feel that we are thoroughly acquainted with 
the past record of this citv as a ne vspaper field. 

We do not desire to boast, but we wish to savin this introduction 
that WE ARE HERE TO STAY. We have had some experience in this 
line of work and feel that we understand what we are undertaking. We 
believe that the people of this section of the State know as well as any 
Other how to appreciate the efforts ot those who come within their midst 
and strive honestly to make a living; t is is at least the opinion we have 
of them and we trust that we may never have occasion to change that 
| opinion. 

By special arrangement we have contracted with the Knox Republican 
Printing Ca. to take control of their plant and till out all their unexpired 
subscriptions which we will do. Those who are paid— in— ad vance 
•,;tvrs to the Republican or the Barbourville News will now receive 
nnrrJMM AdvoCATB to the expiration of the time to which thev had 
the other paper. The Barbourville Xews and the Knox Republican 
this deal both passed into our hands and have l een silenced and 
•oj^the paper in the future will be the Mount AIM Advocate. 

•nay be r.othiug in a name, yet we feel that the name we 
ir *he new paper is one that will appeal to the mass of the 
people residing in this secti 0 " ol Stat *. « n 1 ftnd *« havc com * in *-° 
their midst to be one of them, and we *» * tfl  "«*' «*»' i"terests 

arc mutual and that we can aid each other. The good will of the retiring 
newspapers have been transferred lo us and we trust tl,at ever . v Republi 
can especially, and good citiiens as well, will put their siiC u,der to tne 
wheel to help us to make the Advocate the leading paper of the Elevenil'. 

It will be our aim to make the Advocate first of all a newspaj er, and 
give the local and general news which will be of general interest to the 
readers. The politics will be Republican, and we shall endeavor to be 
governed by the National platform and not allow local and factional dis- 
turbances, if anv exist, to interfere with the higher motives ot the Advo- 
cate. We earnestly ask the co-operation of all true and loyal Republi- 
cans to aid us in making the Advocate the best newspaper that was ever

One dark night, while Grant's lines 
a rederal 

force captured a Confederate outpost. 


private la 
York regiment. 

The name of the Confederate was 
Wakefield, while that of the Federal 
wm Thomas. The former belonged to 
a Louisiana regiment. When placed 
side by side they seemed to be twin 
brothers. Each was about twenty-two 
yea*s old: each was about five feet fivr 
Inches high; each weighed 140 pounds. 
Their eyes and hair were of the same 
color, and even tbelr voices were the 
same except that the southerner had a 
little more drawl. The pair were as 
much astonished as the officers and 
surgeons who were called to look them 

You will not be surprised that advan- 
tage was taken of this curious coinci- 
dent to send Thomas Into the Confeder- 
ate lines. As a preparatory step be 
was given a week In which to pump 
Wakefield. The prisoner did not know 
the object and, being of a garrulous 
disposition, he was ready to talk on 
any subject. Thomas got from him his 
family history complete, then the name 
of the town from which the man ball- 
ed, with incidents of people and streets: 
then the na'ues of his officers and com- 
rades, with incidents ot' campaigning. 
The Federal had been an actor before 
enlisting and had cultivated a wonder- 
ful memory. When he bad stored up n 
thousand different things In his mind 
he bought the uniform worn by the 
Confederate and was ready to set out 
on bis mission. 

One night Thomas was taken down 
to the front and made a bolt for It. 
In other words, it was made to appear 
that one of tbe Confederate prisoners 
was making a dash for liberty, nnd the 
picket opened a sharp fire but took 
aire not to aim nt the 
On reaching the Confederate lines 
Thomas was sent to the headquarters 
of General Mahone. The 
ed a bit suspicious, and Thomas, play- 
ing ths part of Wakefield, asked that 
his captain be sent for. It was a cou- 
ple of hours before the officer arrived, 
nnd the general nt once said to him: 

"Captain, this man who has come 
Into our lines tonight claims to be a 
member of your company. Is be or Is 
he notr 

"He certainly Is. sir," was the prompt 
"What's his nsme?" 
"John Wakefield, sir." 
That Bettled it. 

After three or four days and under 
pretense of visiting s cousin In a Vir- 
ginia regiment Thomas covered the 
front end bad a look at guns and forti- 
fications. When he returned to camp, 
calculating to take the first opportunity 
to escape, be was at once put under 
arrest. It appeured that Wakefield 
and some of his comrades bad raided 
a store of a lot of eatables, and the 
proprietor had ascertained their 
and now demanded their punishment. 

When the merchant and Thomas 
were brought face to face the latter 
declared that Thomas was not the man 
he represented himself to be. Why he 
should have made such a declaration 
Is a pussle. but he seemed to he guided 
by intuition. He was ridiculed and 
laughed at. but he stuck to his assertion 
and even denounced Thomas to Gener- 
al Mahone. As stated after the war. 
the geueral had felt doubts of Thomas 
from the first, which may again be set 
down to the sense of intuition. 

The name of the merchant who hud 
been despoiled was Saunders, and he 
was of an implacable nature. Being 
put on his mettle by the sneers and 
ridicule, he determined to prove his 
case at all costs. As the accuser he 
hud the general ask hundreds of jues- 
tlons. He knew the town and the peo- 
ple from which Thomas as Wakefield 
claimed to hall and in the course of the 
day bad trapped blm a dozen time* 
over. As an offset all the officers anil 
privates of the company asserted that 
Thomas was Wakefield and that there 
was no room to doubt. He went at It 
and related every Incident of camp life 
tor a year past and told of things which 
It seemed Impossible for a stranger to 

General Maboue was clearly puszied 
over the case and took two days to 
think It over. At the end of that time 
Thomas was escorted back to find n 
soldier In Federal uniform In tbe gener- 
al's tent, and there were also two civil- 
ians in waiting. It waa a little surprise 
for tbe spy. Tbe man In Federal uni- 
form claused to have known Thomas 
as a Federal soldier under the name of 
Brown, and the two civilians claimed 
that he had never been 

Thomas realised that tbe pinch had 
come, and be braced himself to make a 
fight for bis life. General Mahone 
treated him In the fairest man 
acting as his own counsel, he went at it 
and soon had the supposed Federal sol- 
dier all twisted up and out of the run- 
ning. Then he tackled the civilians, and 
they proved to be as eusy game. In- 
stead of being cornered up he cornered 
his accusers, and 't was so well done 
thst bkv wss complimented by tbe gen- 
eral. When the case hud been conclud- 
ed. Mahone leaned back and looked at
