ridiculously sweep In will wake and not be Fifty Years Ago Today in Indiana. [Written from the files of the Indianapolis Indianapolis Journal] Fifty Fifty years ago today the Journal published published a pathetic story of the funeral at Lebanon, Ind., of ElUha Klse, son of Lieut. Col, Kise of the Tenth Regiment Owing to the prominence of the father and the brilliant qualities and prospects of the unfortunate son, who met a pre* mature death, the funeral was the largest and most imposing ever witnessed in Lebanon. The young soldier had been a general favorite and his untimely end was widely deplored. Lieut Col. Kise, the gray»h«ired father of the deceased, a soldier of Che war of 1812, and son Reuben, adjutant of the regiment, followed followed the remains to the last resting "at music. Young Kise was accidentally shot in camp at New Haven, Ky*,' on Nov. 21 in a playful scuffle with a negro servant He died in a few seconds, The affrighted negro ran on the first impulse toward surgeon's headquarters, but cries of "Kill him! Kill him!' 1 added to his terror terror and he broke through the guards and fled into the woods, one-half of the regiment at his heels and the other shooting after him with cold lead. Col. Mahlon D. Hanson succeeded in. restoring restoring order and, detailing a squad' of captured the negro and brought him camp. An Investigation was ordered*and the negro was acquitted. One of the unusual war stories of half a century ago today came from Laporte, Ind. The wife .of one of Capt. Shannon's men, of the Twentieth Indiana Regiment, went on foot from Laporte to Baltimore to join her husband, from which place passage on board a steamer was tendered tendered her and she liad the exquisite pleasure of meeting him on his arrival from Hatteras.
