World Sustains Heavy Loss.
Countless sacrifices have been
made by individuals and people of
the uarth during the past five years,
but none have had as far-reaching
consequence as the sacrifice which
Ignace Jan Paderewski, the world
renowned pianist has made. People
who are capable of judging, have
pronounced him to be the most gift
ed living performer upon the piano,
the queen of instruments, and yet he
has given up his art for his country.
Poland has gained by having the pi
anist become the Premier, but the
world has lost heavily. It requires
more than one generation to produce
a Paderewski, and it seems a pity
beyond expression that he should be
?all?d upon to make the sacrifice.
Paderewski was the man of the
hour. Towering above his fellows, he
seemed divinely raised up to save
Poland for itself and for the world.
No one else could have done it and
Paderewski says that he is happy in
the sacrifice for his country.
Although it has now' been two
years since Paderewski gave up the j
; piano, let us hope that after he shall j
I have established an orderly govern- j
j ment in Poland he will be -seized with

i irresistable sense of duty that he re- ?

Poland will have profited and the

Great Day for Baptist Church.
Although the week appointed for J
closing the 75-Million Campaign was
fixed for November 30 to December
8, Dr. R. G. Lee announced about
'three weeks ago that he would ask
the members of his church to raise
their apportionment the first Sunday,
in October. Having completed the1
I campaign for his church early,' he !
j would then be free to assist other j
churches in the association in raising
their apportionment. '
In season and out of season (if '
there could be a time out of season
?for such work) for the past several
weeks, Dr. Lee has planned and la
bored to the end that everything be
in readiness for the climax on the
.first Sunday. At the morning hour
?he made an earnest and effective
?presentation of the great enterprise,
i greatest the Baptists of the South
have ever undertaken, and then gave

night session the aggregate amount
of subscriptions would be announced.
Promptly at the appointed hour for
the night service the house was well
filled with persons eager to hear
the result of subscriptions of the
day.'Before the announcement was |
made by Dr. Lee, no one else being
in possession of the information,
many persons could read Victory in
his beaming countenance. The figuresi
that carried joy to every heart were
$51,656, which was about 30 per
cent, more than the church's quota
of $40,000, others are yet to sub
scribe. Dr. Lee announced that he
would not preach a sermon and after
singing several songs of praise he '
stood on the lawn in front of the
church and shook the hand of every
person present. Dr. Lee has been
heartily congratulated upon the suc
cess of his effor;s.

The Private Soldier.
The private soldier represents the
noblest type of patriotism. He enters
the service with no higher aspiration
than loyal service to home and coun
try; he freely casts his life in the
scales of hardships and danger with
unflinching courage. Staring fate in
the face, he prepares to stand or fall
for his honest convictions. No allur
ing promotion prompted or tempted
him to deed of valor. It was patri
otism and pride that stimulated and
encouraged him. Half starved, half
clothed, barefooted, with nothing
but a full cartridge box, a trusted
rifle, a brave heart and a steady
nerve fully describes the Confeder
ate soldier in the "sixties."
We see the private soldier at his
home in Sparta, bidding farewell to
mother and friends, on the Acropolis
and at Athens, his armor glittering
in the sun-light of a Greek day. It is
at Thermopylae that we see the Per
sian and Greek die like men. One re
joicing at a victory, the other sigh
ing over defeat, both heroes. In Gaul
with Caesar in the forum of Rome,
he proclaims a truth for which he
will die. No doubt when under pe
culiar circumstances officers and men
stood motionless in the,face of the
enemy, unable for the instant to com
prehend the situation, and some
hum He private at the critical mo
ment seized the colors and rushed to
the front shouting, "follow the flag." ?
The act proved' an inspiration and a
resolute charge swept the field,
changing the tide of the battle. ?
The private was indirectly the in
strument through which armies mov
ile ucvcr-bu-oe-iorgotten yell of
our<troops as they charged the panic
stricken enemy on the countless
fields still echoes in our ears. Its
inspiring music that rose above the
battle storm of First Mar.assas re
sounded down the bloody fcur years ?P
of the struggle, to the fields cf Ap
pomattox, where shrill notes wer2
heard as the last charge was made.
No tongue can ever describe the
electrifying and heart-stirring im
pulse it aroused. Memory withdraws
the veil that shrouds the past and re
veals a picture replete with glory
and with woe.
The Confederate soldier was un
ique, both in war and in peace. "Our
heroes" were without number or
State distinction. They measured up
to the highest standard of chivalry.
No matter from what section or un
der what circumstances they were
placed, the honor of their country
was fully sustained and the ^.lory
and courage of that imnr -tal host
will live and brighten w h the com
