Washington's birthday was appropriately
celebrated in the opera house
Friday evening by the graded school
pupils. The exercises consisted of
patriotic songs and recitations by tha
pupils, and an address by Dr. E. Pendleton
.Jones, pastor of the First Baptist
church. Too much can not be
said in praise of the pupils who took
nart. Both the little first and second
grade children and the high schooT
pupils appeared to great advantage.
Dr. Jones 'address 011 Washington
was a magnificent speech. He dealth
with the great causes that helped to
make Washington, and pointed out his
gi-.at i:crviccs to the republic, emphasized
Washington's poise and equilibrium
under trying circumstances
when congress was blocking his great
efforts for the good of his country.
Washington had the power to crush
congress, but refused to act in such a
way as to give any future tyrant or
uemagusue dU uppuuuuii) iu puiiit iu
him as an -example of one who could
be little enough to strike back even
under trying circumstances a.id great
provocation. Washington was unselfish,
and faithful in all the little thingrof
life. The great paTt the South ha.
had in the making of this country w i?
pointed out; and its sacrifices in m 3",
mor.ey and brain, and, at the close of
the war the great gifts of land the
South, especially Virginia, gave to ill.*
union in order that the union mighr he
formed. This land was given as a re*1
gift by sovereign States when some cf
the Northern States were standing
back and refusing to sign the constitution
unless these States would give up
some of the territory that u.^,
wrested from the enemy. At this point
the speaker ftiad-e an earnest plea for
fairness in writing history, and that
the South should not be robbed of th?
glory that is hers.
The opera house was beautifully decorated
in national colors, and everything
was in keeping with the occa
sion, except the conduct of a few boys
in the gallery.
