?Mrry Gantt Writes Person ni ItccoN
lections of Henry W. Grady.
(Anderson Daily Mall.)
Tho South, nor America, never
produced a more captivating and elo
quent orator than Henry W. Grady,
I have seen him sway vast audiences
as a Held of grain before a gale, ?it
one moment having them convulsed
with laughter, tho next silent, with
the closest attention, ns ho discussed
some intricate subject, and then with
tear-dimmed eyes as ho doplcted a
pathetic scone. Grady had not only
a most captivating voice and rare
eloquence, but the few addresses he
made were exquisite word-pain tings,
and yoi his language was so beauti
fully plain, and his illustrations so
vivid and pointed, that he charmed
and captivated alike the learned and
illiterate.
Henry W. Grady was a literary
gleaner and miser. When not at
work or In conversation, his mind
was kept busy. Wherever ho went
.lim llolliday, his faithful stenogra
pher and secretary, was at his side,
pencil and note-book in hand. When
a brigit! thought or expression Hash
ed through daily's mind he repeat
ed it to llolliday and he jolted it
down. Each nigh! thc secretary
would rend over to (?cady Ibo notes
taken during the day and. all deem
ed von hy ol' proserviuv were re
corded, under suitable captions, in
II note-book kepi for this purpose.
So when Grady was lo deliver an
add re:.he drew nu Ihoso notes for
sentences germain lo his subject, il
was like iii ringing pearls.
Grady was a delightful compan
ion, and one of tho most genial ?iud
pleasing mon l ever knew. Every
body was his friend and enthusias
tic admirer, and Grady loved Ibo
whole human race. I never heard
him speak an unkind word of any
one, and when he died il could Ito
truly said of him thal he left not
an enemy behind.
Grady died in tho very zenith of
his fame. I was with him on a plea
sure jaunt for several days, and the
next time 1 looked upon his face
his body was lying in state in an
Atlanta church, and an unbroken
line of sorrowing friends and ad
mirers slowly flied by tho flower
embowered casket. As a manifesta
tion of their love for and pride In I
Henry W '?rady. the people of Goar? I
gin erected it" Atlanta .1 heroic hrnnvse
.statue to perpetuate tho rnomory of
Grady; bul ?he iiguiu dooa not uu
him justice, as it is more like Hoke
Smith than (?rady. Hut Henry W.
Grady has a monument far moro en
during than marble or bronze Im
planted in the hearts and affections
of every Georgian and Allantan a
monument that will endure as lon?
as memory remains.
Grady had a soul and hear! as !
large as the universe, and a nature
so hopeful and buoyant that aol even
adversity could daunt. Atlanta was
unquestionably bulli by Grady, and
his faith In the future of Ibo plano
never wavered.
(?rady was always my line and
loyal friend, ami I never called on
him for a favor bul that il was un
hesitatingly granted. Ile cared only
for money lo spend lt, and died com
paratively poor, and In debt.
To show the great and cn rc-free
hear! of Grady, one Christ mas .'Ove
a farmer admirer sent him a hig.
ia! turkey. After dark he started
home, a darkey trailing behind with
the hird in hand. Ile had gone only
a few hincks when he mel an old.
crippled beggar, who appi'c'ached
bim willi the plea:
"Mister, will you give me a quar
ter to ard Rlttin' a dinner for my
folks, ait we ain't gol er thing 'cl
ent at my house''"
"Sure ! will, old mau." replied
Grady, as a,, ran his hand into .1
pocket, when ho remembered thal
he. too. was dead broke.
After thinking an inst..nt he called
: he da ? key lo him a nd lol?) him .

"Here, give that old fellow the tur-j
key. His family needs It worse than j
1 do. I'll have a dozen invitations to !
dinner, and no one will think of in- ,
vitlng him!" So with muttered and
heartfelt thanks the mendicant took j
his way, carrying (irady's Chrlst
mas turkey.
Mut no plutocrat ever got moro
enjoyment of the good things out 1
of lifo than Henry W. Grady. No
trouble or adversity could daunt his
buoyant, happy, hopeful spirits. At
lanta idolized him and gave him
her best. Georgia loved and hon
orod him, and whatever Grady did ;
was right with his people. The State1
Legislature was in session when j
Grady received a telegram announc
ing the assurance of Cleveland's
election. With enthusiastic audacity
hu went to the capitol, marched up
to the Speaker's desk, and. seizing
Iiis gavel, rapped the House to or
der and adjourned thai body in the
name of the Hrs? Democratic Presi
dent since the Civil War. Tho ses
sion ended in howling, riotous en
thusiasm.
Al that time Grady was editor of
tho Atlanta Constitution, ?ind his
paper owned a small cannon that
Grady himself loaded and ll red from
the roof of Hie ellice building o eei
obrate a Democrat ic victory.
(?lady loaded his little cauinei to
announce Ibo re-election of Mr.
Cleveland, bul we Democrat were
defeated. When the news <. ne in
Grady wrote on a sheet "i paper the
words, "A Charge to Keep ! : ive."
This paper he pasted over the >:ic!i
hole of I ha I little loaded cannon. pul
i i a way, a nd st i ted I hu I th? gun
was not ar..tin lo be tired until an
other Democratic President show I be
elected,
Hut when Cleveland was again
elected Grady had passed away, hut
he lett in his miine to Georgia ono
of its proudest heritages. I was at
that time editing the Columbia CS.
t'.i Haily Itegtster, buA went/to
Georgia to vote. For some limo the
result was in doubt, bul it was un
derstood that if Hie Democrats did
win, the first news should be pro
claimed to tho state by the little
cannon that Grady had loaded. 1
went from Athens to Atlanta to hear
Hie earliest returns, and as the re
ports fluctuated from party to party
public feeling was intense and every
ear attuned to hear the voice of that
little gun.
11 was then ihe news was Hashed
over tho wires, on the &i iga ol olee
trlclly, thal the Republicans conce*
dod Clovelaud'? election und his par
ty's defeat. In an instant the sheet
of imper thal Henry W. Grady him
self had pasted over the touch-hole
of that little camion was torn away.
ii match applied, and the charge of
gunpowder that Grady had rammed
home belched forth the great tid
ings. lt was almost like the voice of
Henry W. Grady himself proclaim
ing tho news. The finers that re
sponded to the voice of that little
gilli almost seemed io shake the eter
nal hills around Atlanta.
Only a short time before Grady's
death. o? invitation of Phil Davis,
George Grogan, myself and others of
Grady's friends, he visited Elberton
(where 1 was then living) and spe.H
several days with us. He delivered
four speeches lo immense audiences,
one in Elberton, one at a point in
South Carolina where the Tugilloo
and Seneca rivers unite to form the
Savannah, and two in Elbert county.
We arranged lo lake Grady on a
two days' trip down the Savannah
river, using a flotilla of old-style
boals, propelled by neuro boatmen
willi poles, such as were used by
the planters to enrrj their cotton to
A ugustn.
Grady thoroughly enjoyed that trip
and acted like a boy just dismissed
from school. As the boals pulled off
the thousands (hat followed Grady
lo ile- river bank bade him farewell
with choirs and waving handker
chiefs. Hui tis soon as tile boats
rounded a bend in Hie river Henry
Grady shucked his pants and was ill
Hie river trying lo duck a darkey, lt
was hard lo believe him thc sann
eloquent orator whom an hour be
fore had thrilled and delightel thou
sands, omi had them laughing oi
with tear-dimmed eyes as his sub
Jed was amusing or pathetic.
'fhe li rsl night our party pitched
camp at Drown s Ferry, on the Geor
gia side, in Hart COU ll ty. Soon aftel
we landed Grady asked me to In kl
a stroll with him, and. walking ai
the road a short distance, we took il
seat on a log.
I asked Grady what his ispira
(ions were, and made a point of as
sining him that he could always
command nu? lo the utmost extent.
His reply was: "Gantt, ibero is n<

HOIJICVTOI? HARRIS VOLUNTEERS
For Blood Trans fusion (o Save lils
Undo, in Dying Condition.
(Anderson Mail, 14th.)
Solicitor Leon W. liurris returned
to Anderson (his morning from Iiir
mingham, Ala., where he was culled
to the bedside of his uncle, J. S. Lee.
While in Birmingham Mr. Harris
underwent an unusual experience,
having a quart of his blood trans
fused into the veins of his uncle,
tho transfusion probably saving the
life of Mr. Lee. The operation did
not o much as inconvenience Mr.
Harris, who is in perfect health, and
he recovered from the loss of blood !
so rapidly that he was able to attend'
a baseball game immediately after]
the operation. Only one quart of
blood was needed in the case of Mr.
Lee.
J, S. Leo ha? been a conductor on
the L, and X. Railway for forty-odd!
years, and is one of the oldest nen
in the employ of the railroad, from
point of service. He has been des
perately ill for the past several
weeks, and physicians decided thal
a transfusion might save his life.
Mr. Harris volunteered the blood,
and ntl examination revealed the fact
that his blood was in the proper con
dition, and thal his physical condi
tion was such thal ho could not only
stand the operation well, ,bnt his
blood was the very sort needed for
his uncle. The operation was per
formed, and Mr. Lee is reported as
recovering rapidly.
