05/31/17 A Valuable War Relic: May 30,1917-From the Garden of Eden: Editor of Herald-Forrest City: Dear Sir, the Army pistol I sent you yesterday, I want sent to Brig.Gen.John Dye, I see he has appointed his staff and is making his arrangements to go to the reunion at Washington City. Thirty years ago when I came to the Garden of Eden, it was a wilderness and was inhabited by bear, deer, turkey and all wild animals, and had been uninhabited since 1865. Here is where Col.Dobbin's camped and fought those, it many hard battles from '61 to '65 and I am satisfied that the pistol was lost by some brave man of his regiment. As Gen.Dye has some of Dobbins' men on his staff, it is possible they can recognize it, and in case none of them cannot, he may bind some at the reunion at Washington City, as Dobbins' regiment generally goes to the reunion. But few got killed and not many have died. In case it is not recognized, return it to me and I will take it up to the Confederate home near Little Rock, as several of his command are inmates of the home there. I am anxious that the owner got it, if it was any of Pat Clabourne's soldiers or Gen.Govan's, I wouldn't be so particular about returning it, as they were connected with the Army of Tennessee, but Dobbins' command never left the canebrakes of Eastern Arkansas and they had a hard time fightin the Yankees by themselves. Respectfully, S.E.Sweet.

11/04/17 JAMES CARROLL 1877 11 1 1917 HAYNES Doped Drink Caused Death of Carroll James: Meager particulars of a most disturbing tragedy at Haynes reached the city Wedneday morning. Carroll James, a man well and favorably known throughout this section, died from the effects of poison which he took without realizing the danger. It is alleged that he had been drinking and undertook to "taper-off" on Tichenor's antiseptic. Unable to procure a further supply of that decoction, he is said to have reported to bay rum, the base of which evidently was wood alcohol, and this poison caused his death Tuesday, Nov.1,1917. The funeral took place and interment was made near Haynes Wednesday. The sad occurrence is regretted by his friends.
