MULES AND MATRIMONY.
A young man from Nebraska has
achieved sudden fame and notoriety by
running oil with his young and pretty
aunt and the best mule team on the
farm ef his confiding uuclc. The un
cle, it is reported, is inconsolable over
the loss of the mule-3, which were the
most beautiful in the county. He can
find another and for his truant nephew,
but the loss of the mules is irreparable.
The nephews of western uncles should
be more considerate. If they must
elope with their aunts they should not
stampede the cattle on the ranch at the
same time uuless they have a clear
right to do to. Good mules are scarce
in the wes'. and especially in Nebraska,
while aunts are as numerous as politi
cians. New York Journal.

THE GRAND ARMY OF THE RE
Started in a Rebel Prison Bedford Co.
boldier th First Hreiclirg
After the meeting of the i x-prison-ers
of war lu lk-Ulord, a le-v days ago,
we CAtue across Cat. Alex. Compiler,
who lived lor many yearn in liedford
county, but who now resides iu Nebras
ka From him we got many facts that
belong to that portion of the history
oi the war which was never written.
With Capt Compher were many lied
ford county soldiers, aud tlte times and
incidents he speaks ot will recall to
tueir mindii many scenes of camp aud
prison life. Capt. Cotnphei had com
comuiand t Co. D. of the lOlstl'enn.
Volunteers aDd with the entire com
mand was made u prisoner at Ply
mouth, X;O.V" April 1G4. . After
being captured the soldiers were taken
to Audersonville prison, the men be
mg put into the 6tockade except the
officers, 108 in number, who wero taken
to Macon, Georgia, aud kept on the
fair grounds uutil the rebels buiic u
stockade. This camp was called "Camp
Oglethorpe" by the rebels. When tliis
was completed the officers confined in
the prisons at Richmond were removed
to Macon, and the number officers then
iinpriaoued there reucueii 1800. After
tue iaii oi Aiaiama, mey were tawen
in detachments of 500 from Macon to
Charleston, South Carolina. Here u
portion of the men were placed under
the fire of the Uuion guns. On th
way to Charleston a plan was laid
to c ipture the train aud escape, I ut
the plot was discovered by the rebelp,
aud the squad that Capt. Compiler be
lon'd to was taken oil" at Savannah
aud keit th-re tor about nix weeks.
From here they were taken to Charles
on and put in the jail yard. While
confined in this place yellow fever
made its appeaianco aud many a poor
soldier whose thyscai system was ex
hausted from exposme and noru not
havmg had nourisuiug food, fell a vic
tim to this dread disease. Jbrom
Charlestou the buys were taken to Co
lumbia, S. C- While on the march to
the Camp at Columbia, Cant. II. S
Bender, of the 101st, being a Free Ma
son, oDtaun-u recognition trom t-o men
in that town. They followed him to
camp and secured an interview with
hiin. lne next day they returned,
bringing with them soni;: provisions
wad a pair oi shoes. The shoes beii g too
small ior 2 dm tie gave them to Capt.
Coniphcr, who told them for 50, nud
with the money nj bonaht an ax, i .ty
ing for St the sum ot 50. Wit i this ax
tvi o bloodhouuts were killed that were
kept by rebel near the caw.i. Fr m
the camp the prisoners were aiterward
taken to the asylum in Columbia, and
whi e confined here Capt. McKage and
two othej prisoners composed the song
"Sherman's March to the Sea."' Infor
mation of the events thatwerc taking
place, of battles being fought and wou
ty the Union armies, was givn to ihe
prisoners by Mi-'s Blount, of Columbia.
Occasionally she would get them a
uewspaper. While here General Geary
made his appearance near the city, oc
cupying with his artillery the camp in
which the prisoners had before been
kept. and when the demand was msde
for the surrender of the city, the pris
oners were hastily takeu to Charlotte
and kept under guard in a cotton field.
In this field was a maple tree and the
ax that Capt. Compher had purchassd
and whieh he had managed to keep,
was used to cut this tree down. Wheu
it fell Capt Compher took a seat on its
trunk and while sitting there one of
the men proposed to form a soldiers
sociSty. The proposition met with
srenei al favor and in order to get all
the men together the cry ot "tresn dsn '
was set up. In a few minutes the en
tire bod? of prisoners had gathered
and they proceeded at once to organize.
As Compher was "in the chair" he was
selected as president of the meeting,
and Maj. D. W. Mullin, of Bedford who
was then captain of Co. G., of the 101st
Fern, volunteers, was selected as sec
retary. A committee was appointed to
prepare a constitution, which they, in
due time did, end after it was read and
adopted, it was signed by the men. In
this prison at this time were men from
every state in the Uuion except South
CarolniB. This meeting was held in
the latter part of February 1865. and
was the starting pouit tor tue organi
zation known as tho Grand army of
the Republic. Shortly after the war
was over aud the soldiers had returned
to their homes, Capt- Compher went to
Blair count', and with Capt. MrKage
and -Capt. Huff, v meeting of the Grand
Army was called and about fifty old
soldiers from that county became mem
bers. At this time the Grand Army is
an established institution or the coun
try. It is honojed and revered because
of the patriotism of its members
While it has an existence it will merit
and receive the kindliest feelings from
eve y true hearted American. Ex.
