Sad memories come over us about I
this time. The tocsin of impending I
war carries us back thirty-seven years, t
when Georgia and the south every
where was in a state of feverish excite
ment-when the roll of the drum and
the thrilling notes of the fife were =
heard in cities and towns and
recruiting camps and men, women and
children all seemed to be wild with
patriotic enthusiasm. Only the aged I
men and women were serious and sdl
emn and silently smothered their ap
prehensions. After the state had se- c
ceded it was hardly safe for a man to
talk for the Union. Here and there
could be heard a bold, defiant voice t
like that of Pettigrew, the great law- E
yer, who, when asked by a countryman
the road that would lead him to the t
lunatic asylum, exclaimed: "Any road, a
sir; every road, sir; all the roads, sir. 7
The whole state is one vast lunatic t
The war fever is as contagious as
the smallpox, and is an epidemic for t
which there is no cure but blood.
April is a historic month. In April
the first guns of the war were fired
and Fort Sumter fell and surrendered.
In April President Lincoln called for
75,000 men to suppress the rebellion.
In April Virginia seceded from the
Union, and General Robert E. Lee
seceded from his allegiance to the I
United States army and tendered his
sword to his state and the Confeder
acy. In April President Davis tele- I
graphed Governor Brown for three I
companies to march immediately to
Norfolk, and in twenty-four hours a
battalion was on the cars and arrived I
there before the Virginia troops did.
And, last of all, in Apfil Lee and C
Johnston both surrendered their I
armies and the war was over. There
is a world of history, sad,thrilling and
glorious history between the begin
ning and the end. Who that was in
it can forget it? It grows brighter and C
grander as the years roll on. No won- I
der the surviving veterans wish to 6
meet once more. For thirty years
their glorious deeds have been tossed
about as treason and rebellion and
a crime, but these old soldiers have
never surrendered their convictions
nor felt ashamed of their sacrifice.
And so let them gather in Atlanta in
July and have one more embrace and
confederate again in memories of bat
tles lost and battles won and hardships
innumerable, and at the last a sad but
sweet return to home and kindred-a
home desolated and a kindred thinned

Wiley Harbin, the old engineer, gave
three long, loud, cheering whistles on
his approach to town everybody waked
up for good news and exchanged greet
ings. "Lee has whipped 'em again,"
was the watchword, and the people
hurried to the depot to meet the train
and get all the good of it. Two whis
tles from the engine was indifferent
news and one was bad and sad, but
did not come often, for old Bob Lee
and Stonewall whipped them as often
as they got at them and would have
been whipping them yet if our boy
children had grown up a little faster.
We almost robbed the cradle and the
grave for soldiers, and even then got
only one for three foes. I shall always
think they ought to have toted fair
with us and fought us two to one in
stead of three-don't you? I wouldn't
have a pension that took three to one
to win-would you? When I was a
schoolboy I had a fight with another
boy and two of thy friends olubbed in
and sorter helped me, and I never
felt so ashamed of anything in my life.
But old Georgia has never discounted
her gratitude to her soldiers or their
widows. She is a long ways ahead of
het sister states. Last year she paid
more to them than all the other south
ern states combined eaid to theirs.
,irginia paid to here $140,000, Ala
bamra $116,000, North Carolina $113,
000, South Carolina $100,000, Florida
$65,000, Tennessee 868,000,Mississippi I
$75,000, Arkansas $42,000, Kentucky 1
nothing and Texas $838,000, while
Georgia paid over $600,000.
Now while we can boast of this, yo
I am free to say and dare to say, for I
am not a candidate for anything limit
ed or unlimited, that our pension laws
are not just and need reforming-Geor
gia has overdone the thing. Pensions
should be awarded to the needy, and
the needy only. The grand furies of
the counties should distribute the pen
sion fund and make selection of the
poor soldiers and the poor widows and
be required to add 25 per cent to the
nfund snortionad by the state. flOn
edering the general aepression, sme
state is paying too much. It should I
be reduced at least one-half,
and let the counties make up part
of the defoiency. Where is the jus- c
ties or the propriety of paying a man
*100 a year who is worth $10,000 or I
$20,0)0 while many poor invalid sol- t
diers who fought just as hard and en- i
dnred just as much, but did not lose I
an arm or a leg, get nothing. 'I se I
that both Atkinson and Berner, in
their declarations, speak of the re- I
wards that were promised the soldieras. i
That is a mistake-nothing was prom- 1
teed nor was anything expeted. They t
fought for their country and $10 a
month and hard taok a bsobon or
beef, and that was all they expected.
The word pensions was not in their
diotionary. I know a widow ytHos
h bald was killed at staff u., and
she does not need her ppien, sad at

bell Wallaes and (Coloalel Trammell
and Sam Barnett first took hold of it
there was lots of work to do and it took
nearly all their time. )But they built
up a system without having a guide or
a precedent. They established rules
and regulations and these have long
since been reconsidered and readjust
ed, and are now generally accepted
and approved by the railroads and the
people. Now the commission has to
meet only once or twice a month and
one competent man as chairman is all
.that ta needed. Colonel Trammell,
from his long experience, could run
the whole business and this would save
$5,000 a year, besides the secretary's
salary, which is another thousand. If
Colonel Trammell or his successor
needed any occasional help to decide
new questions he might call in the
comptroller general and the secretary
of state, who would willingly setve
for nothing part of one day
in a month. School Commis
sioner Glenn has that kind of help
on his board and it costs the state
nothing. Why can't we do that and
save a leak of $16,000? Why not? I
tell you, my long-suffering friends,the
government expenses have got to be
cut down in some way; not just a lit
tle, but a good deal. "Sine qua none"
are bigger things now than sine-cures.
The people are poor. The preachers
tell us that a hungry man can't get re
ligion, and if he should he can't enjoy
it. If we don't stop the leaks
the whole dam business will
burst and wash away and the mill
can't grind at all. I remember-well
when we had no pensions nor school
fund and the people got along pretty
well. Thfle young men married the
young girls and left the widows for
the widowers. There was no such a
word as trousseau in the dictionary,
but if there were less clothes there
was more love and fewer divorces.
But we will talk .bout these things
later, when we get to the legislature.
I'm not going to vote for any man who
will not promise to cut down the taxes,
and we will talk about this pension
business when the veterans meet in
July. I was ruminating about that
day-the anniversary of the greatest
battle ever fought and the greatest
victory ever won by confederate sol
diers. It was a small affair compared
with Gettysburg and Shiloh and the
Wilderness, but its impression on the
country and the soldiers was more
profound than any other. It was like
a young mother's first child-none
that came after ever created so great a
sensation. 10ow viviCt are the scenes,
the rapid night march from Wint ies
ter, the crossing the Shenandoah by
torchlight, wading up to the armpits
with guns and cartridges held up. I
can see Jimmy Smith, the little drum
mer boy of the Eighth Georgia, and
little McKosker, bobbing up and down
over the deep places with water run
ning into their mouths, while
taller soldiers behind them
held them steady. I hear the
shouts of Stonewall Jackson's men as
they came through the woods and
turned the tide to victory. I see the
willow glade and the little branch
where Dr. Miller and his assistants
worked all night with their knives and
probes and bandages, and every little
while said, "next," like the barbers tc
their customcrs. I see the dead in
the pine thicket and the wounded
placed in the ambulances and hurried
to the Lewis house for a hospital. ]

How thick they laid upon the ground
-how fat they seemed next morning
as the burial squads rolled them into
the shallow trenches. They had swoll
en in form and feature during the night
until their corpses filled thoir loose
clothes almost to bursting.
But when we all meet on the 21st we
will talk over the misty past and re
joice with those who rejoice and weep
with those who weep. A sea of tears
has already been shed, both north and
south, but still the chalices are not
empty nor the hearts of the veterans
seared over by the iron hand of time.

Eggs As Food.
Would it not be wise to substitute
more eggs Ibr meat in our daily diet?
About one-third of an egg is solid
nutriment. This is more than can be
said of meat. There are no bones, no
tough pieces that have to be laid aside.
A good egg is made up of ten parts
shell, sixty parts white and thirty
parts yolk. The white of an egg con
tains 66 per cent. water and the yolk
52 per cent. Practically an egg is
animal food, and yet there is none of
the disagreeable work of the butcher
necessarye to obtain it. The veget
aians of England use eggs freely; and
many of these men are eighty and
ninety years old, and have been re
markably free from sickness. Eggs
are best when cooked four minutes;
this takes away the animal taste,
which is offensive to some, but does
not harden the white or yolk so as to
make them difficult to digest. An
egg if cooked very hard is difficult of
digestion, except by those persons
possessed of stout stomachs; such
eggs should be eaten with bread and
masticated very finely. An egg spread
on toast is fit for a king-if kings de
serve better food than anybody else.
Fried eggs are much less wholesome
than boiled ones. An egg dropped
into hot water is not only a clean and
handsome, but a delicious, morsel.
Most people spoil the taste of their
eggs by adding pepper and salt. A
little sweet batter is the best dressing.
Eggs contain pnach phosphorus,
which is supposed to be beneficial to
those who use their brains much.
