OVATION TO JOE WHEELER.
The feature of I ? -i n w,i
Oen Whi ? lei '- addresi and tn>*
that attended his introduction w.is , ne
of frantic enthusiasm. Advancing t*.
the front of th? platt ?n, Gen i ; ird n
held np his hand and *h ilute silence
held upon tin- vast audience as h ? -?ni
"C inr id"-, I hive )i?-re i r.-:il treat f??r
you. If I should ?tell this convention
there is here th ? hero of S ml iit?
(?en Cordon oould get no further A
wild burst if applause thundered forth,
rebel yell? split the air, and hits, canes,
and handkerchiefs were waved as the
great an lienoe r -?? to its f.*et. Finally
securing quiet, ?Qen Cordon -p .ke of
Qen. Wheeler as "the man wlniat San
tiigi held to the front place the army
and tl >g of Amerioa " Again the ap
plause thundered out, ami rising, the
assemblage continue I cheering until the
was one of the wildest that his
ever marked a reunion. Proceeding,
Cen Cordon declared Wbeelet as one
?.f ' 'the wiliest wisardi of the Confed?
eracy," and then repeated theapochry
phal st?ry ?if the famous little e.ivalry
in m when at Santiago he exclaimed, as
the Spani-h lines broke: ''Forward,
boys, th(< Yankees are running," and
again the applause broke out.
The audience ran as Cen. Wheeler
stepped forward, apparently much af?
fected. Me wore a blank Frinofl Albert
suit, with badges <m saeta lapel of his
coat. One was yellow, by enanos, and
the other was red. Me spoke deliber?
ately, calmly and clearly, the audience
giving him close attention. Mis refer?
ence to the general sorrow caused by
the death of Winnie Davis effected
many to tears.
In concluding his address, (Jen.
Wheeler paid an eloquent tribute to the
women of the Bontb and the pirt they
bore in the war and the dark years that
"See to it," said the General, "that
the women of the Confederacy have, in
their posterity, a monument more last?
ing than any that could Is? built of
stone. ' '
He closed amid much applause, ami
the orchestra played "Am-rica. "
I'KESRNTATION OF SH.K FLAG.
Then occurred oneof them ist pictur?
esque incidents of the session, (?en
Cordon arose and advanced to tho front
of the stage, followed by ("en Wade
Hampton, escorted by Col. Holmes aud
Maj Barker, the former bearing a
beautiful silk fl?g, one side of which
was the battle Hag of the Confederacy
and tl e reverse the State flag of South
Carolina. In a few well-chosen words
OoL Holmes presented the banner to
Qen. Hampton as the gift of the Daugh?
ters of the Confederacy of Charleston
to thb United Confederate Veterans.
Turning, Gen. Hampton presented
the flag to Gen. Gordon, whu accepted
it with a graceful little address. H?re,
as on all occasions when he appears,
Gen Hampton was greeted with tre?
mendous applause, the old veteran of
the famons legion that bore his name
being the idol not only of his State,
but of the whole South. Iu presenting
the tilg Gen Hampton also resigned
aa Commander of the Army of North?
ern Virginia, saying he would serve in
the rank? as a private. He gave a? a
reason that his declining years and
physical weakness rendered him unable

lu fact we arc here ! With the
HARVESTERS and MOWERS for the season of 1899.
Tue recognized perfect Machine for Whe it and Hay Grower
There are other machines in the market, but there is but one McCormick
Machine, and that is the best made or sold.
We want every farmer interested in saving their wheat or hay crop to In?
vestigate the advantages of these celebrated machines and do themselves
justice in getting a McCormick Harvester or Mower for 1899, for while the
machines are the best made, the prices and terms are always satisfactory to
buyers. There is no disputing the fact that we sold more " McCormick" ma?
chinen last year to the farmers in the surrounding counties than were sold of
'ill other makes combined. This is a startling fact, and there is a reason for
it, it is the best and most satisfactory machine made or sold.
We refer to tbe following farmers who bought McCormick Machines last season and
wIki are thoroughly pleased in ?wry respect :
