Fay Ball, of near Stumptown, in Gilmer county, returned from abroad
last week. He is only 21 years of age and has served in the regular
army for a full term. Being a member of the thirteenth U.S. regulars.
He had the honor of being in the bunch that went up San Juan hill, but
was wounded severely in the engagement, and for a long time his life was
despaired of, but recovered and was sent to the Phillippines with his regiment
where he was "up against it" several times. He is a son of Farl Ball,
who is quite well known by several of our citizens.
