years of his life
as much -romance,
and 'pathos as
I any individual career
bus known shicotUo world begau.
Mr. Davis 3, 1S0S, in
Christian couuty, uow Todd county,
Ky., anil died Dec. 0, 1SS9, In New Orleans.
"Eight months nftor his birth
not many ulilerf awny id theBnhio state

mado both of them historical personages.
Each In his respective sphere
Lse'rved as a helpless target ,f or .thwarts
of Jxituperntkm and abuW from those
who on tho one Bide or tho other held,
thnrtho' war could hare been handled
better. .Practically aJI through bis
service as the Confederate president
Mr. Davis was charged with Incompe
tency by n Itlchni6nd newspaper printed
so close to his official chambers that
he could almost smell tha ink. - The
vice president of his own government,
Alexander II. Stephens, wrote a letter
declaring his belief that President
Davis aspired to becomo a dictator aud
In substance that his object, Instead of
fighting for lndepondeuce, was tho
of human liberty.
As soeu through historical perspective
fifty years from uow, when all tho
count Is mado up, when prejudice and
pas'lou slnll Uavo given place to calmer
i Judgment, the likelihood Is that Jeffer-
Eon Davis will be regarded as one xvho
did nobly and ably what-It was
slble and imperative for him to do In
i a tlmo that tried men's .souls. For. tho
present, In connection with the ce.iir
tenor of his birth, ft Is sudlclent to set
forth some of the salient features" of
bis career as n man. as a soldier, as a
statesman and as a scholar. It Is
ceded that his service to the United
States as soldier, as lawmaker and as
cabinet mlulater were highly credit-
able Mr. Davis first went to congress
from Mississippi In 1543. John Qulncy
Adams, the "grand old man" of the
bouse, who had been president of tho
United States, listened attentively to
the first speech of the young Mlsslsslp
"That youug man," he said, "Is bound
to make hla mark."
Less than two years later tbe youn.,'
man mado his mark as a soldier. Ho
had resigned his seat In the house to
enter the military service In tho war
xvlth Mexico, being a West Point
graduate. He was elected colonel of tho
First Mississippi x'oluuteer riflemen
In the fierce battle of Rueua Vista
though severely wounded, he miximI
tho day by an exploit xvhlch xvon the
wartn pralso of the venerable Duke of
Wellington and other noted military
men of Europe. That xvas the famous
V movemout Colouel Dax'ls formed
his forces In the shape of a V open
toward an advancing host of mouuted
Mexlcnu lancers much superior In num.
bors. Wheu tho lancers rode doxvn Into
the V, the Amerlcnn riflomen caught
them In a withering fire that mowed
them doxvn like xveeds before a scythe.
A few years later Sir Colin Campbell,
at Inkermau, V shaped his forces aud
repulsed a heaxy body of Russians,
taking his cue from Colonel Davis of
A dozeu years before, xvhon a youug
lieutenant In tho army, Davis had
lovod and n daugbtor of Knchary
Taylor, his Immodlnte commander at
the time. The marriage xvas practically
an elopement. Mr. Davis dlod a
few xvcolis after, tho event, her husband
having resigned from the nrm.x
