Zeigler, Michael G. The many friends of Mike Ziegler were shocked Saturday to hear of his sudden death. We hardly believe it, however, as he was in the DEMOCRAT office Monday, and as he weighs 320 pounds, he was the most substantial ghost we have seen in many a day. May he live long and his shadow never grow less.

Zittle, Mrs. Dennis Waco

After a long and painful illness, Mrs. Dennis Zittle died at her home near Waco, Tuesday afternoon of a complication of diseases. Sister Zittle was one of our best old ladies, a consistent member of the M. E. Church South.

She leaves a husband, one son and four daughters. Deceased was buried at College Hill, funeral by Rev. O. B. Beck.   We extend our sincere sympathy.

Zollicoffer, Felix Kirk A few days ago a gentleman from Pulaski County, who served in the Thirteenth Kentucky United States Volunteers, was in town, and discussing war incidents, the killing of General Zollicoffer came up. The gentleman conversing with him took the position that General Fry killed the ex-Confederte chieftain, “Oh, no.” said the Pulaski ex-soldier.   “General Fry was ‘nominated’ for it, but the deed was done by a private soldier well known to me.”-Columbia Spectator.

To erect slab in memory

Place where General fell, will see dedication October 10

Somerset – On October 10 there will be erected a beautiful marble slab on the spot where Gen. Zollicoffer, the noted Confederate general, fell in the battle of Mill Springs on January 19, 1862. The dedicatory services will be in charge of Col. Bennett H. Young, of Louisville, who is at the head of the work having the spot where Gen. Zollicoffer is said to have fallen, and which is known as Zollicoffer tree, and which is decorated every year in honor of the dead hero. The occasion of the dedication of the memorial slab will be one of great interest, and will be attended by noted war veterans from different parts of the country. Col. Bennett H. Young took this matter up some years ago and had W.G. Trimble, of this place, deed away a plot of ground for this purpose, Trimble having been the owner of the ground on which the battle was fought. Several efforts have been made by Congressmen from the Eleventh district to have Congress make appropriation for the building of a fine turnpike from Somerset, the nearest railroad point to the Mill Springs battlefield and the National cemetery.

It was found on the exact spot where Gen. Zollicoffer was killed and where the monument will be placed. The heavy rains of late had washed the earth, and the ball was found buried in the ground.
