WHAT IS ME.MOMAr.?
No, Lad, you don't understand
why a lot of grizzled old men
should waste a day when God's sun
is shining, and march away to
gloom of a cemetery and scatter
flowers on mounds that to you are
mounds, but to the world represent
a wonderful idea.
Away back, when your grand
daddy had two good legs and was
as spry as yon are today, it became
necessary to light to preserve the
unity of a nation. This great
country was plunged into war, and
you've heard enough to know what
a terrible thing war is.
And this was worse, for it was a
war at home. It wasn't like fight
ing a foreign foe. It wasn't like
defeating the British and driving
them out of a land in which they
had no business.
It was a family war, and it hurt
because brothers fought brothers,
yes, and killed them. And fathers
and nns were found in opposing
armies. Oh, boy, when you get
big enough to understand, and love
your country as you must if you
are to be wise and good citizen,
you should prny the good God to
whom v) say your ''Now I lay
me," every night, to preserve us
from another civil war.
It 'asted years, lad. It starved
thousands, butchered them, wound
ed tnem, tortured them. It took
the best blood in the country.
North and South, for don't forget,
lad, that there were good wen in
gray as well as in blue. They
fought for what they thought to be
right and so did we, and chat
means awful fighting, lad.
Why, boy, if you should take all
the people of 10 big towns like this
and bury them right now, it would
not cover the deaths in that big
And j'otir grandmother and
thousands of other mothers and
grandmothers cried until they
no longer could shed tears. And.
some of them fought like men and
others went as nurses, and if Car
negie should make medals night
and day for a year he couldn't hope
to supply them to the heroes of
that war, men nnd women, yep'
And most of the folks w h o
fought because of their love of
country, lad. It is as fine as your
love for your mother. It is some
thing that makes a nation great
and strong; and men true and up
right. You know, lad, a giod
soldier i always u good citizen,
and a brave rann can never be a
very bad man.
And finally it was all over und
the right triumphed as right must
if the world is to live, and then
North and South, a great efi'ort
was made to forget, to be brothers
and friends ugain; to build up a
stricken laud; and to take up the
burden of making this the most
wonderful land on the globe.
And we are succeeding, lad,
The flag thntyour daddy hoisted
over the. house this morning is the
Hag of Alabama, nnd Texas, and
Ohio, und of all of us, and I love
it, for I foiight for it, and everv
one of those green mounds repre
sents love for it, and every boy
should grow up to feel that it be
longs to him and thut, if trouble
comes, he should lay down his life
So you see, lad Decoration Day
represents love of country; devo
tlou; appreciation; self-sacrifice,
Those are long words, dear lad.
Perhaps they are too long for a
little boy, but they are the things
that help transfer youngsters like
you into strong men ntitl good men.
And now we'll got into the
parade, and white we keep step to
the music of the fife and drum,
we'll bo glad that the big world
isn't too busy to deyojo ono day
each year to Memory, and the
men who fought for the grand

The Case of Donby, is Be
Comes From the State
The case of tho State of Ohio
against Edward Donby, accused of
murder in the, second degree, be
gan in Common Pleas Court, Mon
day morning. Senio difficulty was
had in securing a jury, .almost tho
entire morning session being takon
up. The panel ns completed con
sisted of Mossers. John D. Shaw,
W. H Nixon, Marion Hansel,
Harry Risley, James McLin, Geo.
Shaw, Daniel Bray, John Timber-
lake, Samuel Blum, Amos Groves,
J. W. Nixon, and D. O. Weltner.
Judge 0. W. II. Wright was re
tained to assist in the prosecution;
attorneys for the defense are
Messrs. H. E. Sparnon, John C.
Pettit, and E. O. Pettit.
The specific crime alleged
against Donby in the indictment
now on trial is that of unlawfully,
purposely, and maliciously killing
Robert Butts. Tho trouble occur
red on the railroad track in front
of James Johnson's Restaurant, at
New Pittsburg, on the evening of
Sunday, February 25, 1900. A
full account of the shooting, as
then understood, was published in
these columns at the time.
The State occupied Monday af
ternoon and Tuesday morning in
p-esenting their evidence, resting
shortly after dinner Tuesday. The
chain as forged by them is, in the
absence of rebutting testimony,
strong against the accused, and'is,
briefly, about as follows: Butts
and his friend, James Bridgewater,
became involved, in an altercation
with Donby and some other colored
boys thnt evening, the trouble
growing indirectly out of a pre
vious quarrel, in the afternoon,
between Butts and a young color
ed man named Alpha Harden,
who, it will be remembered was
tried here last week for assault
upon Butts. After some words, it
appears that Butts became armed
with a pick, and Bridgewater
with a rock, Donby standing his
ground with a revolver. On be
ing urged by friends to lay aside
their weapons, both the white
boys did so; Donby, at the same
time, offered to 'give up his gun:to
two neutral parties, who refused
to take it. It is claimed by the
prosecution that Butts and Bridge
water remained unarmed, and
were so when shot. They persist
ed, 'however, in taunting Donby,
calling him names, and saying he
was afraid to shoot. Several wit
nesses testified that this wae the
extent of the provocation a claim
whioh, needless to say, the de
fense attempts to rebut. Donby
finally opened fire on tho pair,
shooting Bridgewater twice and
Butts twice. Th,e State's evidence
is that both wero retreating when
fired upon. Donby's third shot
entered Butt's back, in the region
of the left kidney, and slightly to
tho left of the second lumbar ver
tebra, passing onne through the
colon and several times through
the small intestine, and lodging
finally in front, and on his left
eide. Tho other shot merely graz
ed his body under the left arm.
He was assisted to the home of hit
brother-in-law, George Jenkins,
near by, and cared for by physi
cians, Both Butts and Brjdge
water died, within a few minutes
of each other, in a Columbus hos
pital, on the following Tuesday.
The general defense to the homi
cide is on the ground of self-preservation.
It was dark, and there,
was a mixed crowd of white and
colored men at the scone, Donby
is crippled, both feet being very
badly clubbed, and would not
dtand much show In an ordinary
fist fight. Ho 'claims to have had

was in great bodily danger. The
