paying tribute to the life and ser
vices of the South's most distin
guished soldier, of whose birth this
day wAs the anniversary.
Dr. Cromer said that only a few
days ago many assembled here to
pay the last tribute to one of Lee's
great lieutenants. This was Lee's
day, and it was fitting that the peo
ple shduld assemble that the women
might honor the survivors of the
Confederacy, the followers of Lee.
These guns here were of a different
pattern and belonged to a past
generation, the shadows of whose
survivors were lengthening towards
Dr. Cromer drew a beautifui pic
ture of the South as the "land of
memories." He pictured the field
of Gettysburg-the field of monu
ments, with its, tablets recording
the history of Federal commands,
with its hundreds of monuments
marking the positions of Federal
regiments, some of them costing as
high as $8o,ooo and $9o,ooo. There
is one Confederate monument on
that field marking the highest point
reached in the tide of success by a
Maryland regiment. Complaint was
made by the Grand Army of the
Republic because the Confederate
regiments, when allowed to erect
monuments, desired to mark the
high tide of their success. And so,
that complaint having been regis
tered, barring that one Confederate
monument, that field is a field of
splendid Federal monuments. But
the visitor standing on Cemetery
Ridge and beholding the monu
ments erected there to Federal valor
and devotion, is struck most of all
with admiration and wonder and
awe, not that the Federal army was
able to hold the heights, but at the
courage and devotion which actu
ated the Confederate line as it swept
up those heights and like a gray
sea beat on the rock crowned sum
mits. We have the memories if
not the monuments. Our great
leader taught us heroism in defeat.
"It was my fault." It was not his
fault. His followers knew it was not
his fault, and yet in his big heart

Dr. Cromer read the magnificent
tributes to Lee and to the "sword
of Lee" from Ben Hill and Father
Ryan, which he said should be
learnedi by the children of the
South. The dominant note of his
character was the voice of duty,
"stern daughter; of the voice of
Imagine that the time may come
when the descendants of one of
you, said Dr. Cromer, addressing
the veterans, rumaging among the
effects of your family may come
across thisglittle cross, whose in
trinsic value is only a few cents.
And the child may ask, what' is
this? There may be gold medals
and unbounded wealth there. But
what is this? On one side will be
read, "United Daughters of the
Confederacy," and on the other
"Deo Vindices, 1861-1865," and on
the corners "Southern Cross of'
Honor." And then somehow, by
a tradition in the family perhaps, it
will be found out that no one other
than the one on whom it was be
stowed dare wear it, insignificant in
value as it is. He himself could
not wear that cross without violat
ing the laws of his. State. The next
question wouldjbe,-What wete the

The Southern Confederacy has
given to us, first of all,-given to
to us so that it shall hereafter be
wrought into the very structure of
government,-the right of, local self
government, a right never to be im
paired. It gave to us a soldier,
moved by patriotism and duty, who
showed us not -only how to win
victory-the Revolution gave us
that-but how to die and how to
live. Had it given us only Lee and
Jackson, examples to the youth of
this country. not a|drop of the blood
that was spilled would have been
shed in vain. When the world to
day would find examples of leader
ship in war, examples of character
in leadership, the world looks to the
South. And not long ago a North
ern statesman took the postion that
the Federal government would be
fore the middle of the present cen
tury erect a monument in theCapitol
Square to Robert E. Lee, n:>t as a
rebel, but as the finest example of
American' manhood, %orth, dignity,
bharacter and courage.
No synop"sis will do justice to Dr.
Cromer's address. Many an old
oldier was moved to tears and that
they appreciated it and loved the
man for it utterances is the highest
tribute that can be paid it.

mighty God, in his all-wise prov
idence, to remove from our midst
our dearly beloved friend and fel
low student, Bessie Scott, who after
a short 'Illness was called home on
Wednesday, Dec. 23, x9o3, we, the

our sad, but pleasing duty to offer
the following resolutions of respect:
Resolved, i. That by her death
our school has lost one of its noblest
and most talented students, al
ways setting an example of kind
heartedness and obedience
2. That although our hearts are
saddened and we cannot see why
one so young, so promising should
be snatched away, we feel that it
was the best and bow in humble
submission to the will of Him who
doeth all things well.
3. That we extend our heartfelt
s mpathy to the corely bereaved
4. That a copy of these resolu
tions be sent to the bereaved family,
