IN THE NAME OF GOD
WE WILL SET UP
Gray Hosts of South Pass in
Grand Review Before the
President. Their Sons An
swer the Call to the Colors.
Wearers of blue and gray mareh
together in loving proof that the
Potomac no longer marks a divid
ed nation. Washington to-day
staged a spectacle for the world.
Soldiers in Grajvwho fought for a
sacred causa more than fifty years
ugo were escorted by veterani in
blue against whom they had fought
with utmost bitterness through the
heart of the nation's capital, which
they had almost succeeded in captur
ing by assault. Together they
marched past the president of the
l?nited States as living proof to the
world that there is no North and
South in the United States today:
but one re-united country, thinking
and acting together; so firmly
established by their strife. The"Stars
and Bars" of the Confederacy, and
the "Stars and Stripes" of the
Union tenderly carried, fell loving
ly together when dipped in sulute
as they passed the president. The
same spirit that prompted them to
do valiant service in defense of
their homes and State rights in the
CO's is still warm in the breast, was
shown by numerous offers of serv
ice showed to President Wilson as
the veterans passed the review
stand. "We will go to France or
anywhere you want to send us,"
was the favorite cry. And another
said: "Call on us, if the. boys
can't do it." A sign attracted the
President's attention beariog the in
scription, "Dam a man who aint
fer his country, right or wrong."
Here was a hint to the world that
as the veterans of the past fought
with valor unsurpassed, so are their
sons and grandsons to-day prepared
and preparing to repel any affront
to the nation or its flag. A stirring
call to all sons of Confederate vet
erans to prove themselves worthy
sons of their neroic sires was made
by ErneBt Baldwin of Roanoke, Va.,
commander-in-chief of the Sons.
"I feel," he 6aid, "we should be
unworthy of the heritage of our
fathers did we not, with a single
mind and a single voice, answer the
call that comes to us at this period
of our national history. It is a call
for renewed spirit of patriotism,
and warm co-operation with those
into whose hands we have commit
raited the welfare of our country."
"We live in a fateful hour in the
history of the world; autocracy and
Mohammedianism are making their
last stand before the triumphant
march of Democracy and Chris
tianity. That for which we now
struggle was the morning star of
hope in the breast of Washington;
the shrine at which met Jefferson,
Madison and Monroe; the goal
sought for at this hour by the com
mander-in-chief of our army and
navy, a son of the South, now a
citizen of the Kingdom of Man; a
steady and sterling patriot, Wood
row Wilson, the president of the
United States. The South is ready
to give its blood and ils treasure;
the sons of the South will be found
deep in the first line of defense on
the battle front with the Stars and
Stripes, by land and by sea. In
pledging allegience to Old Glory,
they will not be untrue to their
fathers. That flag was baptized
with Southern blood in the show
ers of bullets of a battlefield with a
solemn radiance ot national glory.
This star-lit flag unfurled, and the
magic of the Declaration of Inde
pendence has beted the earth.

The store that always says, That You
I have worshipped in churches and
I've prayed in the busy street;
I have sought my God and have found
Where the waves of his ocean beat;
I have knelt in the silent forest
In the shade of some ancient tree;
But the dearest of all my altars
Was raised at my mother's knee.
I have listened to God in his Temple;
I've caught his voice in the crowd;
I have heard him speak when the
Were booming long and loud;
Where the winds play soft in the tree
My Father has talked to me;
But I never have heard him clearer
Than I did at my mother's knee.
The things in my life that are worthy
Were born in my mother's breast,
And breathed into mine by the magic
Of the love her life expressed.
The years that have brought me to
Have taken her far from me;
But memory keeps me from straying
Too far from my mother's knee.
God, make me the man of her vision
And purge me of selfishness!
God, keep me true to her standards
And help me to live f*o bless!
God, hallow the holy impress
Of the days that used to be,
And keep me a pilgrim forever
To the shrine at my mother's keen!
