Lee, triumphing with -.nrerior num
bers over adversaries wno are tacti
cians and nothing more."
In speaking of Lee's audacity in
attacking wich a force Inferior in
numbers and equipment McClelland
thoroughly organized army in their
intrenobments in the Seven ?Days'
battle he says.
"From Hannibal to Moltoke there
has been no great captain who has
neglected to study the character of
bis opponent and who did not trade
on the knowledge thus acquired, and
it was this knowledge which justified
Lee's audacity. He was no hare orain
ed leader, but a profound thinker,
following the highest principles of
the military art. That he had weighed
the dii concerting effect which the
sudden appearance of the victorious
Jackson, with an army of unknown
strength would produce upon McCiell
an goes without saying,''
Again he writes:
' Lae, with his extraordinary in
sight into character, had played on
Pope (at Second Manassas and bit
strategy was justified by success. In
the space of three weekshe had car
ried tbe war from the James to the
Potomac. With an army that at an
time exceeded 55,000, be had driven
80,000 into the fortifications of
Washington. He had captured 30
guns, 7,000 prisoners and 20.000 rifles.
He had killed or wounded 13,500 Fed
erals, destroying supplies and mater
ials of enormous value and all this
with a loss to the Confederates of 10,
000 tffljers and men."
If, as Moltke avers, the junotion of
two armies on tbe field of battle is
the highest achievement of military
geniuH, the campaign against Pupe
has seldom been surpassed: and the
great counter stroke at Massassas is
sufficient in itself to make Lee's repu
tation as a tactician. Tried by this
test alone Lee stands out as one of
the greatest soldiers of all times. Not
only against Pope but against Mc
Olellan at Gaines's Mill, against Burn
uide at Frederickburg and against
Hooker at Chancellors vi lie, he seceed
ed in carrying out the operation of
which Moltke.speaks; and each case
with the same result of surprising his
adversary. None knew better how to
apply that great principle of strategy,
to march divided, but to fight concen
In this action Lee violated both of
the maxims of Napoleon?never to di
vide an army into two columns unable
to communicate, or attempt a juno
tion In the p resence of a concentrated
enemy; but Lee knew his men. He
violated the last section of this max
im because he knew Pope, and tbe
first because he knew Jackson, lb is
rare indeed that buch trategv suc
ceeds. Hasdrubal divided from Han
nibal by many miles and a Consular
army, fell back to the Metarus, and
Rome was saved. Two thousand years
later Prince Frederick Charles, divi
ded by a few marches and two Aus
trian army corpi from the Crown
Prinos, lingered so long upon the Iser
that the supremacy of Prussia trem
bled in the balance. But the charac
ter of the Virginian soldier was of a
loftier type. It has been remarked
that after Jackson's death Lee never
again atitempted those great turning
movements which had achieved his
most brilliant victories. Never again
did he divide his army to reunite it
on the field of battle. The reason is
not far to seek. There teas no general
in the Confederate army to whom he
dared confide the charge of the de
tached wing, and in postSsing one
such general he had been more fortu
nate than Napoleon.
It is noteworthy that Moltke once,
at Konlggrarz. curled out tbe opera

kntehr.ly race all their virtues, he had
a x-ritea none of their vices. Honest
incere, simple,, magnanimous, for
bearing, refined, courteous yet dignl
fled and proud never lacking self
command, he was in all respects a
true man. Graduating from West
Puint his life had been exclusively
that of a soldier, yet be had none of
che soldiers bad habits. He used
neither liquor nor tobacco and indul
ged rarely in a social glaas of wine,
and cared nothing for the pleasures of
the table. He was a good engineer
and under Gen. Scott had won dis
tinction in Mexico. The work that
bad fallen to his lot he had performed

scientious care. Duty iB the subli

T inking slavery as an institution
a moral and political evil.' having a
soldiers devotion to his flatr and a
warm attachment to Gen. Scott he
loved the Union and it was espec
tally dear to bim as the fruit of the
mighty labors of Washington. Al
though believing that the South had
just grievances due to the aggression
of the north, he did not think these
evils great enough to resort to the
remedy of revolution and to him se
cession was nothing less.
'Still.' he wrote in January' 1861, a
union that oan only be maintained by
swords and bayonets and in whicn
strife and civil war are to take the
place of brotherly love and kindness
has no cnarm for / me. If the Union
is dissolved and the government diB
rupted I shall return to my native
State and share the miseries of my
people and save in defence will draw
my sword on none.' Summoned to
Washington by his chief, Lee had
arrived there a few days before the
Inauguration of Lincoln, and he bad
to make the decision after the bom
bardment of Sumte: and the presl
dent's call for troops whether he
should serve the national government
or Virginia. The active oommand of
the Federal army with the succession
to the chief place was virtually offer
ed to him but/ with his notion of
State rights and his allegiance to Vir
ginia his decision, though it cost him
pain to make it, oould have been no
other than it was. He oould not lead
an army of invasion into his native
State and after the ordinance of se
cession had been passed bythe Virgin
ia convention he resigned his commis
sion and accepted the oommand of
the Virginia forces.
"Northern.men may regret that
Lee did not see bis duty in the same
light as did two other Virginian,
Scott and Thomas, but censure's voice
upon the action of such a noble soul
is hushed. A careful survey of his
character and life must lead tfce Btu
dent of men and &nUlrs to see that
the course he took was from his point
of view and judged by his Inexorable
and pure conscience the oath of duty

Most old people are great sufferers in Winter. They IfVTNTER
are seldom free from pains or ailments of some description, because they are
not as able to withstand the severity of the climate, with its damp, changing
weather, as are their younger, more vigorous companions. Cold weather
starts the old aches and pains; they suffer with chilly sensations, cold
extremities, poor appetite and digestion, nervousness, sleeplessness and
other afflictions peculiar to old age. With advancing years the strength ?nd
.vitality of the system begin to decline. The heart action is weak and irregu
lar, the blood becomes thin and sluggish in its circulation, and often some
8Id blood taint that has lain dormant in the system for years begins to man
:est itself. A wart or pimple becomes a troublesome sore or ulcer, skin dis
eases break out, or the slight rheumatic pains felt in younger days now cause
sleepless nights and hours of agony. There is no reason why old age should
not be healthy and free from disease if the blood is kept pure and the system
strong, and this can be done with S. S. S. It is a medicine that is especially
adapted to old people, because it is made entirely of roots, herbs and barks,

moves with more rapidity, and clears it of all
impurities and poisons. As this rich, healthy
