PUBLiSHED WEEKLY WINNSBORO, S. C. WEDNESDAY, MAY i6, 1906. ESTABLISHED 1844.
from All Parts o
Col. Lumpkin C
Memorial Day was a memora- ,
ble day in the history of Winns- 1
boro and of Fairfield county.I
It was truly veteran's day and
they were here from all parts of
the county to enjoy it. And
from the many expressions that i
were heard on every h a n d
throughout the day, they did en
joy it and that to the fullest
From the time that the school
.children of Mt. Zion first made
their appearance in the front of
the line of the veterans that was ]
forming at the corner of College I
:and Congress streets, as the <
-town clock was striking 10, till I
the ladies, as the sun was sink- i
ing in the west, returned from
the cemeteries, where they had
placed their beautiful floral
'tributes on the graves of the I
'heroes, whose memory they thus
honored, everything seemed to
.-move without a flaw and the ex
ercises in all their details were
well nigh perfect. The town
lhad been given over wholly to
-the veterans, and however much
it was a pleasure for them to en
- joy the courtesies that were ex
itended, it was no less a pleasure <
to the good people of this com- <
Ununity to contribute to making 4
ithe day one long to be remem- I
"bered by them on account of the I
delightful social intercourses. I
The opening feature was the
appearance of the pupils of Mt. ]
Zion in line of march from the I
school building to the court
house. The larger girls led the ]
way, the two fore-most each..
waving a Confederate flag. Then
followed the pupils of the lower
grades, each pupil carrying a
beautiful bouquet of flowers 4
that was to be used in the deco- ]
rations that afternoon. They
marched in splendid order and
made a most impressive scene,
one that brought the old Rebel
yell out in voluminous force.
Behind the Mt. Zion pupits
came the veterans, who had been
formed in line of march by the
snarshal of the day, Capt. W. G.
.Jordan, who still possesses the
eniiitary spirit in a marked de-1
~ gree and is a master of a body of
-oldiers. The old soldiers too,
~as they marched, though many
.of them gave evidence of the.
passing years, manifested no
ittle of the martial spirit of
years gone by, when they march
ed upon the field of battle.
At the stand in the court
house yard .i. E. McDonald,
master of ceremonies, took charge
of the exercises and af tari
music by tha band Rev. C. E.
MfcDonald in a most impressive
manner invoked the blessings of
the God of hosts on these sur
vivors of the Lost Cause and:
upon their sons and daughters.
Then followed a song, "Tenting.
on the Old Camp Ground," by
the pupils of Mt. Zion.
The address of welcome was
,aae by Capt. H. A.. Gaillard.
-the old hero, who is still loved
E~nd honored by his Comrades of
foreaer years and there w~as in
~his language such a tenderness of
;feeling that every one must have
~felt that the warm spoken words
~were truely uatterances from the
lheart. The welcome was indeed
cordial and eloquently and feel
Engly spoken, just a suitable ex
pression of the real feelings of
the community in having these
honored guesis in oar midst.
"'Dixie" by the Mt. Zion pupils
was the next number and when
they had concluded, the ban'd
then struck up the same strain
a~nd there followed such a cheer
ing as only Dixie produces.
Mr. McCants in his introduc-'
tion of Col. Lumnpkin, the orator
of the day, was most ha.ppy. He
was at his best, and, in keeping
with the spirit of the day, lie
paid beautiful tribute to the
heroism of the soldiers and the
*part the women had played mn
immortalizing their brave deeds.
*Col. Lumpkin was greeted
~wiQ a great round of applause
when hec arose and with an even
~reater a'pplause when he took
his seat after a short, but most
forcible and mostelqet
address. No wonder this son of
Georgia is so muchi in demnd
for these gatherings of the old
soldiers, for he is just full of theI
,sentiments of patriotism that
amjl burn within their breasts'
d by Veterans
f the County==
ses of Honor
iud gives utterance to these lofty
:houghts in a manner that is
ver so simple and yet ever so
,aptivating. Any synopsis of
2is address would be an iniustic.
[t was a great treat to his old
.omrades to hear from him again
uch beautiful references to their
ourageous deeds and to the
loble sacrifices of their mothers,
vives and sisters; and surely
uch eloquent words did not fall
ipon the ears of. his younger
iearers without arousing in
hem a nobler conception and a
leeper appreciation of what their
athers and mothers w e n t
hrough in those trying days.
A number that was not on the
rogram, though none the less
mjoyable, was the expression of
;hanks to Winnsboro on the part
)f the veterans, which was made
y that son of Fairfield who is
till honored at his old home,
apt. R. H. Jennings, state
Imediately after the speaking
vas over the veterans were lined
ip in the street in frou of the
ourt house and as the namas
f the 183 veterans for whom
rosses had been secured were
alled, each veteran stepped two
aces to the front, the line con
aining 137. Thus formed they
nade an impressive sight and
vhile still in line their Crosses of
lonor were pinned upon them by
he following young ladies from
rohn Bratton Chapter of the
)aughters of the Confederacy:
Kisses Elizabeth Cureton, Mary
- lison, Isabel le Douglass.
dam~ ordan, Anna Beaty, Theo
3abb, Bessie McMaster, Laura
lerig, Marie McCants, Tirza
Ketchin, and Maggie Neil.
It was jiast 12 o'clock when
his interesting g-xercise was con
:luded and the bour till dinner
was spent by the old veterans in
a quite social way. At 1 o'clock
:he veterans were again formed
in line and marched to the Des
%otes building, where the ladies,
tssisted by a committee of gentle
men, had left n~othing whatever
indone for their ,comfort or their
m~oyment. The dinner was not
nly an elaborate and bouptiful
ane, but served in suich an easy~
aome-like manner by the maidens'
i waiting that it seemed that
very one had persoual attention
md that it was just one great
>ig family set down to one com
non table and that was just wha
t was. After the veterans had
assed out of the building more
han 150 others came in and
partook of what remained and
still there were bucketsfu~l taken
At 6 o'c'ock in the afternoon
:he ladies, in kehping with a
beautiful custom that has pre
vailedi for years, went to the
arous cemeteries ane decorated
the graves of the Confederate
lead. It was iqticeable that
many of the children assist~ed in
this most beautiful tribute.
And when the exercises of the
day were over there was but one
sntiment on the part oT the
visitors and that was that Winus
boro ha~d done hcrself prond.
And on the part of the home
peope there wa rejoicing that
it had been done and the dotermi
nati-n that it must be done again

Dixie, a National Hymn.
In refering to the matter of a
"national hymn," the New York
Sun recently declared rightly
that such a thing was not a mat
ter of law nor of congressional
or other kinds of resolutions,
but that a real national hymn is
one which the people will spon
In commenting upon the sub
ject. the New Bedford Meicury,
a New England paper, says:
"If the truth is told about
everybody with a musical ear
has a sneaking preference for
'Dixie., It can be whistled and
sung with satisfaction, while the
'Star Spangled Banner' lacks the
qualiLy which pleases the masses
and is quite unsingable. There
is nothing more uninspiring than
to hear an average company of
people drone the 'Star Spangled
Banner.' If this be treason,
make the most of it."
There is no question about
that paper being entirely correct.
"Dixie" stirs up the Southern
heart especially, but is almost as
popular in the North and else
where as here. It strikes a re
sponsive chord and brings forth
cheers wherever played or sung.
It seems to-fill the bill, according
to the standard laid down by
The Sun. The Savannah News
says the words- of "Dixip" are
not so inspiring, but the music
is all right. If we are to have a
national hymn to be sung at
popular assemblages some poet
can grind out words to fit the
tune and maybe to inspire, so
let it be "Dixie."-Colmbia Re
Letter to W. R. Rabb & Co.
Winnsboro, S. C.
Dear Sirs: What is lumber
"Depends on the lumber,"
"what sort do you want?"
That's how some people talk
about paint. They ask: "What'll
yog painL my hpuse for?!
The Yankee nswer is: COW
do you want it painted? One
coat? two coats? three coats?
first-class or cheap?"
The proper answer is; "I want
the best paint put on as it ought
That's I~eyoe; buy the psgal
answer is; '1. want a good job;
but I want it cheap." Which
means: I want you to paint it
for nothing. I want~ to be fooled.
ILead-and-oil is the costliest
paint there is: not the best; it
used to be best. Devoe is best
since zinc came in: Devoe lead
Zinc costs no more than lead;
and we grind by machinery.
We have no patent on, zinc;
but pobody else. is treatmg~ it
rght. Devce is yopir paint.

A voice in the rear of the hall
"Aren't you the nzan who said
one Southerner could whip ten
Yankees with a cornstalk?"
Instantly Vance replied: "Yes
my friend,'I am the man. I said
that one Southerner could whip
ten Yankees with a cornstalk. I
believed it then and I believe it
now. The trouble was that the
Yakes didn't want to be whip
