EULOGY OF WINNIE DAVIS
-pl Bennett H Youngs Tribute
tft Charleston to the Dead
Daughter of the Con
federacy
Charleston S C May li Before
the Confederate Veterans Associa
tion today Col Bennett H Young-
of Louisville delivered an eloquent
eulogy of Winnie Davis the dead
Daughter of the Confederacy In
part he said
The most distinguisheddivine of
the Seventeenth century when
preaching- the funeral of Louis XIV
the greatest of all French rulers
as he gazed upon the deceased
King cold pallid powerless ex
pressionlesslifted his hands to
heaven and with tears streaming
down his cheeks exclaimed There
is nothing great but God And
comrades as we recall the beauti
ful beloved and winsome face and
form of The daughter of the Con
federacy as she stood in our pres
ence less than a year ago at At
lanta and with joy and pride re
ceived anew our knightly admira
tion and fealty and as we now rea
lize that she is now morebut sleeps
in death we too in pathetic and
profoundest sorrow turn our eyes
heavenward and cry out God
alone is great The love devotion
and homage of the surviving- heroes
of the Southern armies could not
aeoifto stay the handof the invin
cible conqueror death and despite
the fervid protests of valiant thous
ands who oftentimes without hope
and always without fear fought for
the South the inexorable decree
has been executed and with bowed
Jieads and anguished hearts we
peak tenderest praise for her who
occupied the first place in the affec
tions of the living men who are part
of that superb host which made the
vtKtlim
w
k v
lory and fame of the Confederacy
ernal
The practical spirit of the pres
ent times would say that the age of
chivalry is gone but as represen
tatives and descendants of an aver
chivalrous people we can confi
dently challenge this coarse con
clusionthe outgrowth of a period
marked by the exaltation of money
and money-getting- and point to
the love of the Southerm men for
this child whom illustrious war
riors adopted and are proud to
claim as their own and confidently
aver that whatever may be said of
others in the hearts of Confederate
soldiers there still burns ith un
i quenchable flame and unconquer
Vtfbte force that spirit which makes

are occasions when the hush and
solemnity of death become intensest
veloquence and speak with a pathos
and power that are simply immeas
urable
Born amid the conflicts of the
mightiest war the world has ever
witnessed cradled within the sound
of the cannons roar and often
awakened from sleep by the rattle
of musketry which defended the
capital of the country for which her
father offered the costliest sacrifice
of all those who defended its life
and name in her infancy made to
feel the deepest grief and
and indignity heaped upon
htm who was President of the na
tion the South so heroically strug
gled to maintain she had expe
riences which only come into one
life during all the ages of the world
His enemies sought to traduce
Ker fathers name to destroy his
Sfife and dishonor the purity and
iv onlmir nf his natriotism but she
ras constant amid all his
ipns and misfortunes He suffered
his people and she with and for
and to the end she was true to
his name true to him and true to
the people who loved him
The love of her people for this
their child was separate and apart
from all other loves Her wondrous
devotion to her father her constant
and unselfish ministrations to him
in the declining- years of his isolated
life her filial help in his literary
labors the chiefest of which was
his defense of his nation in its claim
tot separate existence and the right
eousness of its cause and the ab

loyal Confederates with an admira

pathetic and eternal
On the banks of the James river
close to where nearly three hun
dred years ago came the cavalier
to give to Southern manhood the uplifting-
power of his geniu his
courage and his chivalry they have
given her lasting- sepulcher The
breezes from every hillside valley
and mountain of the Southland shall
bear sweetest benedictions to her
tomb and the rippling waters of
the stream by which she rests
fresh from the mountain tops which
pierce the blue skies which over
hang the mighty Alleghenies shall
murmur softest requiem by her
graverjand as thce flow into the
mighty ocean they will be taken up
by the chainless winds which

sweep with unbroken power over
the face of the great deep and with
harmanious sweetness tell the story
to all the world of the marvelous
and wonderful love which the peo

THE NEW CENSUS
The twelfth Census will be the
birrjrest task of nose-counting- ever
undertaken
It will be a greater undertaking
than a census of Great Britain and
France combined
Russia alone of nations has made
a count of over eighty million peo
ple but did not get such a variety
of information
The facts about Uncle Sams big
ness industries habits religions
arid education will be put upon
100000000 cards The actual ad
dition and tabulation will all be
done by reckoning machines
A thousand million questions
must be asked and answered to get
at the facts about population alone
Then there are to be special re
ports and tabulations of figures on
about forty special topics
Census enumeration between
Alaska and Hawaii where it will
involve a great amount of traveling
and the most crowded areas of New
York will present some variety
These are the things the question
man will ask you
Name age color sex married or
single plrice of birth birthplace of
parents alien or naturalized num
ber of years in the United States
occupation months employed liter
acy school attendance pwnership
of farms or homes
If youre a farmer merchant or
manufacturer there will be a lot of
other questions
The Census Bureau will need
150000 feet of floor space in a sin
