Many unique entertainments have
been indulged in by Bolivarians in
times past, but not one has ever
equaled in point of picturesqueuess
and enjoyment the "Colonial Ball"
as given on last Friday . evening by
the young ladies to the young
gentleineu. The hall of the Public
School building was tastefully deco
rated for the occasiou. Ribbons of
red, white and blue were festooned
from each corner, caught beneath
the chandelier with a bunch of the
mystic mistletoe, under which the
gay dancers dreaded to be caught.
The young ladies were gowned in
silks, satins and brocades of "ye
olden time" and right well did the
gay costumes and powdered coiffur
es become the bewitching maids.
It would be an injustice to all to
single out one as the "colonial
maid." The gentlemen were re
splendent in gold lace, rich em
broideries, velvet coats and trous
ers, silver knee and shoe buckles
and gaily powdered perukes. The
grand march was led by Mies Julia
Bills and Mr. O. D. Hall, of Holly
Springs, after which the German
was danced for the remainder of
the evening. In the wee small
hours of the early morning, the fol
lowing tired revellers wandered to
their homes "beneath tin misty
moon-beam's struggling light" and
were soon lost in happy dreams of
the delightful evening spent:

To the officers and members of Hiram S. Bradford
Camp, No. 426:
Whereas it has pleased our heav
enly Father to call unto himself the
soul of our beloved friend and com
rade, Rev. Joseph Edward Martin,
L. L. D., cf Jackson, Tenn., who
was an honorary member of this
Bivouac and who officiated with us
at various times, your commit'ee
deems it wise to record the follow
ing points in his career:
Dr. Martin, though born in Penn
sylvania, enlisted, while still quite
a young man, iu the Confederate ar
my iu Virginia, and served as Chap
lain and soldier under the great
Stonewall Jackson, being always at
the front, and always brave and
fearless in the discharge of his duty.
He was three times wounded during
his career as a Confederate soldier.
At the close of the war, he threw
all the energy of his strong and im
petuous nature into the work or a
Priest of the Most High God, and
served faithfully and well in that sa
cred calling in the Dioceses of Illi
nois, Louisiana, Mississippi and.Teu
neesee, interspersing bis work, from
time to time, with his splendid liter
ary" lectures on Jefferson Davis, Rob
ert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson.
He was ever the stalwart defender
of the righteous caue for which lie
hid fought and bled. Like all true
Confederates, he had no mi.-g; i:
as to the justness of the struggle iu
which he was risking his all. Dr.
Martin was, at all limes, the devot
ed friend of the true Confederate
soldier, regardless of his rank or:
station. In his death, Hiram S. j
Bradford Camp, U. C. V., loses
one of its best beloved comrades, a r
loss, to us, irreparable. I
And whereas, we deem it a pnvi-
lege to place on record our expres- j
sion of affectionate esteem, and our,
sense of the great and sore bereave
ment we have sustained in the be
Therefore, be it resolved, That in
the death of comrade Martin, this
camp has lost one of its best and
most highly cherished friends, and
the valued services of a devoted and
able Christian comrade and hero,
one whose efficient and faithful
work among us will not be forgot
ten. Resolved, further, we record our
sense of bereavement at the loss of
a comrade whose warm heart and
genial nature drew him so close to
as a Bivouac and individually,
i ed that -this memorial and resolu
tions be placed on the minutes of II.
S. Bradford Camp, 42f, U. C. V.,
and that the Secretary furnish, a
copy of the same to city press, with
a request that they be published,
also, that he forward by mail, a
