Memorial Services5at the Provi
The memorial services held in the
l'rovidence Cemetery in honor of the
Confederate dead were marked by
i;mllicity and genuine sentiment.
The graves of the Confederate heroes
had been cleaned and above each one
waved the white flag of truce, typify
ing. p: ace after warefare: rest after
foil. and the slumber of death after
the fever of life.
The ceremonies were singularly
devoid of affectation. Just as the
afternou sun-light was flooding the
earth, the procession started from
the public school house. First were'
the carriages containing the sponsor,
the maids of honor and their escorts.
The other containing the minister's
and the orator of the day. Then
followed the Confederate Veterans
with their flag, the conquered banner.
borne by Mr. Geo. Guier : afterwards
the Edward Sparrow Chapter of the
l)aughters of the Confederacy, car
rying wreathes of flowers: then the
young ladies and little children of
Lake Providence, dressed in white,
with garlands of flowers in their
hands. A nutmber of persons at
tended the ceremonies.
The procession marched into the
cemetery grounds, past the white
4 memorial cross, until it reached an
r open space on the western side of
the cemetery. There was no music.

leaves of the trees. The place seem

I and peaceful as becomes the resting
V place of the dead.' Dr. F. R. Ber
i nard as master of ceremonies, stated
the purpose for which the crowd had
t assembled and the services opened
e with a prayer by Rev. C. Mahe.
i Father Mlahe's prayer was first, one
s of benediction, and after.wards, one
of thanksgiving. He said as the
people of Jerusalem had hung their
harps on the trees and wept by the
waters of Babylon for the City
I of Zion, so the people of the
1South cherished tenderly the mem
a ory of the lost cause. Patriotism
ranked next to religion, and after the
I martyrs bho died for their God, come
the heroes who died for their country.
1No disaster, sorrow or disappoint
r ment could uproot the love of .coun
try. It stood mid the storms of
life-strong and immutable-some
thing to which to cling to. Men
grasped'it and anchored their souls
to it, as a sea-wrecked sailor clings
t, a ro.( : tbO ocean,, wheL t,,t
storm rage and the winds and the
waves are high. He prayed God's
blessing upon the Southland, and
blessed the flame of patriotism tfiat
had been kindled in the hearts
of women, whose efforts would help
to keep alive the ideals of the South.
lfe thanked God that although
the war gave rise to much thatj
was great and noble in character andj
deed, that at last the dread tumult
was hushed and that God blessed
this land with peace. The awful
chasm caused by the war of secession
had been bridged over and the men
that fought for the bars and stripes
were now ready to fight for the stars
and stripes of the Union. He ended
by rcciting the Lord's prayer, and
the voices of many joined him. They
uttered slowly the sacred words of
that payer which now for over
nineteen hundred years has ioven
itself into every jroy and sorrow of
every christian life; the first pr-yer
pronounced after baptism; the aInst 't
prayer sQgbbed above the grave.
Dr. F. R. Bernard then iutro
duced Judge J. M. Kennedy as the
orator of tth, day.
Judge Ken:ely disclaimed the
title of orator; saying he wished he
had the eloquence of a Ciscero or a
Demosthenes, to do justice to the
occasion. The purpose for which
we had gathered was sad, and ywt
there was a solace in the sadness.
The recalling of the memories of the
dead of whom we are proud, has in
it something pleasing, if melan
eboly. The Confederate veterans
stand alone in history, not being
considered rebels-in every other
instance, when two nations fought,
the one defeated was known as a re
bellious nation. If the American I
