CITADEL MAY HAVE CAVALRY.
Hills to Be Introduced to Make Cita
del Eligible for Cavalry.
(News and Courier.)
Cavalry and artillery training at
the Citadel, as well as infantry train
ing, which is now given at the insti
tution, is a possibility If bills soon
to be introduced Into Congress be
come laws. The main purpose of
these bills Is to provide the govern
ment with a means of securing men
who will be flt for the cavalry and
field artillery of the army as well as
the infantry service. The bill af
fects those military schools at which
regular army officers are detailed as
professors of military science and
the students of which have exhibited
such proficiency in military training
as to have obtained the war depart
ment rating of "Class A distinguish
ed." This would render the Citadel,
the Virginia Military Institute and
perhaps half a dozen other schools
in the country eligible.
The record of the Citadel renders
It eligible, of course, and lt is rated
among the "Class A distinguished"
institutions, but the Introduction of
cavalry and artillery Instruction
would necessitate, under the bill, the
furnishing by the schools themselves
of a part of the equipment. Col.
Bond stated that the question whe
ther or not the Citadel would under
take the innovation would havo to
be determined later.

survived them all and passed away

Called upon while yet in her teens
to assume the head of her father's
housen?ld, she filled the position with
great dignity and stood for all that
was highest and best in her State
and community. She was carefully
and brilliantly educated and was pos
sessed of extraordinary talents,
strength and intellect and force of
Her acquaintance with literature,
powers of conversation and retentive
memory were excelled only by a Mac
aulay, while her literary style was
modeled upon the purity and simplic

She was a skilful musician and a

Miss Earle was intensely patriotic.
Descended from pioneers who were
conspicuous in Bhaping the history of
the State, she felt a deep and per
sonal interest in all that pertained to
Its welfare. Her eiforts In behalf of
the soldiers during the war were not
able. It was largely through his
daughter's Influence that her father
invested a hundred thousand dollars
in Confederate bonds, greatly to the
disgust of his financial advisers.
A blow from which she never re
covered was the death of her bro
ther, Wilton R. Earle. He was killed
at 8 o'clock in tho morning .by the
first shot fired from the famous
"Long Tom" at First Manassas. A
younger brother, Preston, entered
the service at sixteen, was severely
wounded, but fought to the end.
In early life Miss Earle connected
herself with a Baptist church. As
she never did anything by halves, she
threw herself, with all the energy
and enthusiasm of her nature, Into
everything that pertained to the ad
vancement of this denomination. Her
intellect, her wealth and social pres
tige mado her a potential factor in
the wonderful progress of this de

her benefactions, there are many to
