1893. Captain Kinard has three children: a daughter by his first wife, who is now Mrs. E. H. Aull, of Newberry, and two sons, John M. and James P., children of his second wife. James P. is professor of English in the Winthrop normal and industrial college of Rock Hill.

In 1887 he was appointed clerk of court for Newberry county to fill an unexpired term, in 1888 was elected to the office, and in 1892 re-elected, serving ten consecutive years. Upon the organization of the Commercial bank of Newberry, in 1896, he was elected its president and has since served in that capacity. He was the youngest county clerk in the State at the time of his appointment by Gov. John P. Richardson, bei
Henry Gray Brigadier-General Henry Gray.—The State of Louisiana gave many gallant defenders to the cause of the South. Whether in Virginia or in Tennessee, or on her own soil, her soldiers were among the bravest of the brave, conspicuous for daring on the field of battle and for fidelity to duty on all occasions. Among these gallant spirits none deserve more the grateful remembrance of their countrymen than Henry Gray, who entering the service in 1861 as a subordinate officer had by May 17, 1862, received his commission as colonel of the Twenty-eighth Louisiana. The sphere of action assigned him by the Confederate authorities was within the limits of his own State. Through the first months of his service he had no opportunity for distinction. But when in 1863 the Federals in New Orleans began to make attempts to extend their conquests in the southwest, all those brave sons of Louisiana who had not yet had an opportunity to strike a single blow, found steady employment in watch
g to serve his country in the field, the people of his district wanted him as their representative in the councils of the new nation. So they elected him as their representative to the first Confederate Congress. He served in that capacity until the organization of the permanent Confederate government in February, 1862. Resigning his seat in Congress, he raised a fine body of troops, known in the Confederate army of the West as Waul's Texas legion. Of this he was commissioned colonel, May 17, 1862, and assigned to the department under Van Dorn, and afterward under Pemberton. Waul's Texans especially distinguished themselves during the siege of Vicksburg, in the recapture, on May 22d, of one of Gen. Stephen D. Lee's redoubts, where the enemy had planted two of their colors. After other commands had hesitated, 40 men of Waul's legion recovered the redoubt, capturing 100 men and the flags. Immediately 30 guns of the enemy were trained upon them; they were almost buried in the debri

Subsequently the raising of other regiments, as volunteers for the term of twelve months, was authorized, these to be, in like manner, numbered from one up, in the order of their organization. This distinction between State Troops and volunteers was kept up until the re-organization under the general Conscript Act, which went into effect on the 17th of May, 1862, when the order of numbering the regiment was changed by adding the volunteer regiment, as originally numbered, to the number of State Troops, by which the 1st regiment of volunteers became the 11th, and the others, in like manner, ten numbers beyond those they first bore. The re-arrangement, therefore, changed the old 13th into the 23rd. Under the ordinance referred to, ten companies from the following counties, viz: one from each, Richmond, Anson, Montgomery, Mecklenburg, Lincoln, G

The sun pours down its hot and scorching rays; the air is filled with clouds of excruciatingly fine dust, which, ceremony, penetrates everywhere, the streets are almost deserted of beings, and men and animals move lazily about their tasks, as if they had yielded to the general languor. Not even a rumor ripples over the surface of this army ocean, to break the monotony of its calm, and we who float on the tide are drifting towards inertness and indifference. Oh! for some grand excitement, some sudden intelligence that shall flash along the wires of the heart, and stir this sluggish mass into its former life; something that will call out man and beast; set every
