OUR CONFEDERATE DEAD.
(JWritten fo- Morial Day.)
Beneath their country's Sacred
Their wars forever ended;
Our soldiers rest, their soul's with
With earth their bodies blended.
On distant fields amid the pines,
Where winds are softly sighing;
There side by side in long dark
Confederate soldiers are lying.
No roll or drums, no call to arms,
The solemn silence breaking;
No clash of steel, no rude alarms,
The woodland around awaking.
Their guns are covered o'er with
Their banners now are trailing;
Their cause is mingled with thei2
Their valor not availing.
No sentry tramps his lonely beat
His anxious outlook keeping;
For reasting are those weary feet,
And he is sleeping, sleeping.
But o'er them Nature holds her
And guards them in her slumber
For all attendants in her train
Act sentinels without number.
At early morn the bright sun
Light up the leaves so tender
That each dew-drop upon them
To shine with martial splendor
When night relieves the lingering
To watch the earth io vernal;
Then brightly gleams the milkj
'-'i'at Bar of Stars eternal.
No vision of the morrow's strife
The warrior's dream alarms;
No braying horn, nor screamin
At dawn shall call to arms.
A id when the last dread trum]
O'er fields far-famed in story,
An army formed upon thii
Shall march straight on to glory
-J. H. N.

THE HISTORIC SUANNEE RIVER
( Written for The News and Herai
This noted stream has its source
among the marshes. and morasses
of the Okeefinokee swamp in the
southern part of Georgia. From
here it winds its way tly-ough the
best, most fertile, most valuable
lands of sub-tropical middle Flor
ida, until it empties itself, in
creased by many of the most
beautiful springs that ever bub
bled from mother earth, into the
grand old Gulf of Mexico.
Come with me now with your
imagination and let's take a fly
ing sail down one of the most
poetic streams that adorns this
terrestial ball; one that is not
- ~ surpassed in grandeur by the
Rhine with its vine-clad hills, nor
by the Moselle with its trans
parent waters. As we have but a
limited time to make this voyage
we will not launch our boat at its
source, but at White Springs,
about seventy-five miles from its
m'outh. At this little town is one
of tha many medical springs that
empty their health-giving waters
in the river.
Now our boat is launched and
all ready. We glide along on the
smart surface of the clear water
ini such an ecstatic manner that
we are compelled to forget the
trials and troubles of this life, and
ask ourselves, "What is life .but
ease?" It is now that we think ol
the rough and perilous passage
down the stream of Time, and
almost shed a tear when we think
of the contrast of that stream, and
the ever-inspiring Suannee.
A soft zephyr now fills our sails
and we glide rapidly past flowers,
massive pines, huge oaks and
forests of all kinds. Now we come
to a portion of the river which is
straight. We look forward and
the water looks as if it was one
large mirror, with its smoothe sur
face decorated here and there
with superb mermaids' water
lilies, and as if it was framed by
rich green forests of magnolia and
che beautiful restless river in
front of us pants along the level
stretcher and dodges around the
good natured shoulders of the
hills. The water ripples and sings
below us, and out on the sunny,
sandy curves the beautiful'-silver
finned fish are taking a bath in
the golden sunlight.
By this time we have the real
laziness of spring in our yains and
would like to stop for .a rest.
But we must move along as rapidly
a our boat will take us'becadse
we will soon have to stop for the
We now travel about ten miles
down the same easy, quiet flowing
river, and between the same grand
irregular banks that we have fol
lowed since launching, until we
get to our place for a silent night's
This stopping place is one of
the many beauties of the stream
Suannee Springs. These springs
are near the little city of Live
Oak. There is a fine hotel and
bathing house here. The forestry
around the place is mainly live
oak trees, growing here and there
in natural irregularity, with mel
ancholy drapery of long grey moss.
The rest and stillness of a Jew
ish Sabbath prevails everywhere,
and the old moss-draped oaks in
our imagination are much the
same in stateliness of appearance
as the historic tree under which
Abraham entertained the angel.
Conversation at Suannee Springs
is always carefully modulated in
tone, never argumentive in char
acter, and rarely animated in ex
pression or interest.
The river flows by in silence.
The old mule that pulls the car to
meet the train at a distant trunk
line station, hangs his head when
at rest between trips as if in mel
ancholy meditation on the wor
ries of the outlying world from
which he is restfully isolated.
The spring is a pool of the
clearest and purest sulphur water.
We walk up to the palacial
hotel, registor. order supper and
rooas, and after drinking heavily
of the (Spring water,) repair to
dining room. The waiters here
all negroes-black, sleek, fat and
shiny-dressed in uniform. They
perform their duties with as much
dignity a'nd leisurely deliberation
as a U. S. Supreme judge. We
now begin supper. Some order
ox tail soup; some a slice of the
other end of the animal, perhaps
the tongue; some other dishes of
All the while a negro waiter,
dressed as fine as a fiddle, washed,
combed, and shaved as clean as a
whistle stands by to receive or
ders. We do not know their
names, but they look so stylish,
clean and sweet that the nicer,
more fastidious portion of our
crowd fairly primp their mouths
to call them honey. After supper
we went at once to our respective
rooms, as the long day's ride
made the thoughts and 1ooks or"
our beds quite agreeable. We
awoke at early morn, while out
across the river the owls were
hooting, we felt as if we could
remain there in our beds for an
age; but we must arise and con
tinue our highly interesting voy
age, so immediately after break
fast we were off down the river in
the refreshing coolness.
We now sail more rapidly be
cause wve are nearing the Gulf and
the wind has more velocity. While
our boat is furrowing the smoothe
surface of the river, our attention
is called by the appearance of a
magnificent mansion just away
fromn the bank. Beyond this man
sion is a vast farm. On this the
old negro who composed the song,
"Way Down Upon de Suannee
Riber," worked during his younger
eriod of life.
After we pass this place, we see
several historic towns along the
banks. We now come to the
broad mouth, and just as the
famous old alchemist is touched
with magic fingers the grey robes
of the sky, we glide alongside the
dock at the beautiful port of
Cedar Keys and receive a warm
welcome by the mosquitoes. I
remarked to a gentleman just
before we had started our sail
that I thought the mosquitoes
very annoying. He said, "These
are just mosquitoes here, they
are galinippers lower down, and
they are hell-rippers at Cedar
Keys, and can bite a pumpkin to
the hollow every pop." He did

An Opinion of the Programme That is
To the Editor of The State.r
I have recently receives the
eading it I am moved to express
y profound thankfulness that
~uch an oppcrtunity can be of
ered to the teachers of South
Jarolina. The variety and scope
f the instruction and the distin
uished ability of the instructors
ould not easily be surpassed any
where-it is a rare good fortune
hat such a course of studies, at
mee scientific and practical could
ave been secured from as many
rained experts of the highest
eputation. It is a privilege for
all our teachers, which none should
2eglect, to attend such a school;
and it is an honor to the State
,hich could provide such oppor
unities, as well as to the woman's
ollege which has so generously
offered its large hospitality.
I do not wish to speak of dis
redit duo to those who have
rganized this summer school, for
that is needless, but I would note
the rapid advance in our public
school work when such a school
can be conceived and realized,
ad-best of all-draw a crowded
attendance. This is a fact, and
n omen, of the highest signifi
ance. Debarred as I am now,
y special misfortune, from any
ersonal participation, I wish
still to express my deep interest
n the work, and my hope that its
value will be appreciated by the
eople, as well as by the teachers
of the State. Respectfully,
Edward S. Joynes.
