The Commercial Appeal gave us
something "up in G" Tuesday. lis
reunion edition was a beauty and
contained much valuable informa
tion that should be preserved.
Tiieke is a disposition on the
part of some to rfdicule and belittle
reunions, claiming they are product
ive of no good results. This erne
nates from a class, however, who
never suffered for their country's
cause, and whose ignorance of the
meaning of the word patriotism is
deplorable. Those who wore the
gray made a record that startled
the world, one which the South
will always proudly cherish. If
they derive pleasure from the re
newal of past acquaintanceships,
and recounting their deeds of val
or, what right has an outsider to
interpose? No adverse criticism
will or should prevent these reun
ions they will be held until time
removes the participants from the
stage of action after which they
will be perpetuated by sons and
daughters.
THE REUNION
The Eleventh Annual Reunion of
United Confederate Veterans was
held in Reunion Hall, Memphis,
this week, beginning Tuesday and
ending Thursday. The attendance
is said to have been the largest in
the history of the Association.
Gen. Geo. W. Gordon, of Mem
phis, called the meeting to order
and prayer was offered by Rev. J.
William Jones, of Richmond, chap
lain in chief. At the conclusion of
the prayer, Gov. McMillin was in
troduced and welcomed the delegates
on behalf of the state. The address
of welcome on behalf of the city
was delivered by Mayor Williams.
1 he greetings ot the Memphis vet
erans were extended by Hon
B. Turley. Bishop Gailor deliver
ed an address of welcome to the
veterans and of greeting from the
local branch of Sous of Confederate
Veterans. The hall was tendered
to the veterans for their use during
the convention, and turned over to
Gen. John B. Gordon, of Georgia,
Commander in Chief of the United
Confederate Veterans. Gen. Gor
don responded in part as follows:
Governor, Mr. Mayor, Bishop
Gailor and Representatives of Mem
phis: For the third time it is my
duty and high privilege to respond
to Tennessee's welcome to the Unit
ed Confederate Veterans.
For the third time since our or
ganization this great State embraces
with her maternal arms these immor
tal remuants of the South's match
less armies. First she welcomed us
at Chattanooga, then at Nashville,
now at Memphis. And what place
could be more fitted for such a
gathering than this city, by the
great river which was once the
highway for irouclads, whose wa
ters were churned .by torpedoes into
a seething cauldron and whose
bluffs were ramparts for the strug
gling people?
Four thousand years ago the an
cient Memphis, built upon the
banks of the Nile, was the home of
the gods, the seat of Eastern learn
ing and worship, the proudest me
tropolis of the great Egyptian delta.
Within her limits were the temples
of Vulcan, Serapis, of Iris and of
the Sun. There Alexander the
Great was wont to worship, and
there stood the marvelous pyramids
to whose majesty the great Napoleon
appealed by reminding his soldiers
that from those hoary heights for
ty centuries were looking down up
on them.
But grandly impressive as is that
ancient city, as it is revealed thus
through the long vista of ages, it is
more than rivaled by this modern
Memphis in all the elements of true
greatness and human progress.
Here it is true there is no fertilizing
Wile, spreading its vivifying floods
over arid plains and converting
them into gardens rich and product
ive; but we offer in its stead the
more majestic, the far nobler Fath
er of Waters, gathering from the
slopes of mountains and a thousand
fertile hills the rich alluvions and
spreading them over far wider areas.
In lieu of the great Egyptian delta
which rivals it in fertility and vast
ly excels it in expanse, in the varie
ty and value of its products, in the
grandeur of its forests and the
healthfulness and charm of its cli
mate. In this modern Memphis are
no temples dedicated to sacred bulls
and chimerical gods; but here are
erected the glorious temples of the
great Jehovah himself, wherin his
spirit dwells and his ransomed
hosts bow to the only King of Kings
and Lord of Lords. In this Mem
phis is no ancient seat of sceptered
monarchs, but it was for a long time
the home of Jefferson Davis, who
in his deepest humiliation and woe
ful experience towered in moral
grandeur to far nobler stature than
the Egyptian Medes or Persian mon
archs or Greek or Roman invader
ever attained in all their glitter of
' royal equipage and ephemeral glory.
Here in this Memphis no Alexander
the Great ever worshipped in life or
laid in state when dead; but here
lived, here fought, here died and
here rests the honored ashes of
Nathan Bedford Forrest, the wiliest
horseman of modern times and the
equal in native, untutored genius
of the greatest calvaryman of any
age.
We are glad, therefore, to meet
in Memphis. In the fullness of our
hearts we thank this generou9 peo
pie for their iuvitation and for this
princely reception. I conclude as
I began, with the declaration that
no more appropriate place for such
a gathering could have been select
ed. It is appropriate for the rea
sons already suggested. It is ap
propriate because of its geographi
cal position, and by the steadfast
adherence of its people to the im
mortal memories of the past; it is
in the very heart of the lost but
forever loved Confederacy. It is
appropriate because it is built upon
the banks of the great river which
binds together with its liquid links
the distant sections of our great
common country, for this city is
one of the fountain heads of that
stream of American brotherhood
and unity which flows with ever in
creasing volume through all liberty
loving American hearts.
Col. Bennett II. Young, of Louis
ville, was the orator of , the day and
delivered a splendid oration.
At the appearance of Gens, Gor
don, Bate, Lee and Wheeler, "the
"rebel yell" fairly shook the great
building to its foundation.
The program, previously pub
lished, was carried out with a few
changes.
lhe Reunion was a great success
in every respect. Many touching
and interesting scenes occurred that
will never find their way into print.
Memphis covered herself all over
with glory in her hospitable enter
tainment of the veterans.
Dallas, Texas, was chosen as the
next place of meeting.
COREESPONDEN OE. t

LOTT, TEXAS.
Having been a citizen of Harde
man county many years, l will now
attempt to interest your readers
with a short account of my experi
ence and observation in the 6tate of
Texas. I live near the town of
Lott, in Falls County,on the rolling
prairie. lhe soil is black and
waxy, yet it is easily cultivated.
The growing crop is a thing of
beauty. I have just returned from
a little visit up in McClennan
County. The public roads are like
a pavement, and on every side field
after field of waving corn of the
darkest green, about waist high,
meets your gaze and extends as far
as the eye can see; also immense
fields of wheat and oats in the va
rious stages, from golden yellow to
the darkest green. While the cul
tivators are laying by the corn the
harvesters are gathering in the yel
low grain.
Wheat yields from ten to twenty
bushels per acre; and oats from for
iv io seveniy-nve ousueis. Jom
ranges from thirty to eighty bushels
per acre. Cotton is the main crop
here, borne farmers have not fin
ished planting, yet you can see hun
dreds of acres of cotton ten inches
high. The man with the hoe is in
great demand here at present, and
the cultivators are at work in every
field. An active man with a good
team can cultivate from fifty to
seventy-hve acres of black land.
What we call black land is worth
irom twenty to mty dollars per
acre, according to locality and im
provements.
Lott is a ten year old town with
somewhere in the neighborhood of
forty business houses, three Ian:
cotton gins, with both square and
round lap presses, one large flour
mill, a bank, a newspaper, four
churches, and a good public school
with about 400 pupils. The free
school system is well conducted in
Texas. Our town shipped about
14,000 bales of cotton last season,
and merchandise ot all kinds are
for sale here at reasonable prices.
My object in writing this letter
is to give my many friends in Har
deman County some facts as regards
the condition ot things which I see
and know. I am not trying to
blow the country at all. Texas can
blow her own horn.
People here generally live pretty
well and on Sunday you can see at
any of the country churches well
dressed people, generally renters
and share croppers, driving up in
their surries and buggies, all well
behaved and polite people, to wor
ship in the sanctuary, and bring
their children to Sunday school. I
have not seen a drunken man since
I came here and we have a dry
town. Respectfully,
J. M. Moegan.

which caused a valuable horse much suffering, but
from which permanent injury was avoided by the
timely use of Mexican Mustang Liniment.
La Grasce, Term., Jan. 6, 1901.
Lyon Manufacturing Co.,
Brooklyn, N. Y.
Dear Sirs : I will say that your Mexican Mustang
Liniment has done a wonderful cure in this part of the
country. I own the stallion known as the " State of Ten
nessee," who has a large patronage both far and near his
service this Spring to date is 102 mares. I was offered
400x0 when he was two years old. I refused same. Then
some one took him from the stable and commenced with a
wire and wrapped the right leg from the foot up to his hip,
and after standing all night the leg had swollen so large as to
hide the wire, and in five days the leg bursted and the flesh
turned inside out. I spent large sums of money to have him
cured but up to five months ago it was quite a failure, and
then a friend induced me to try a bottle of your liniment. I
used one of the 25-cent bottles because 1 did not have much,
faith in it, but it helped him so much that .1 bought a second,
third and fourth bottle, which completely cured him. The
reason it took so long to cure is that it had a kind of itching
sensation when it was healing a little, when he would bite it
with his teeth.. I put the liniment on the wound with a feath
er and rubbed the swollen parts with my hand.
Mexican Mustang Liniment seemed to take out all the
itching as well as to cause it to heal rapidly, and he showed
no disposition to interfere with it. The one dollar purchase
has been worth hundreds of dollars to me. I keep your
Liniment in my breeding stable all the time, and to those
who have horses I will say it is the best liniment that money
can buy. I will answer all inquiring letters.
Very truly yours,
J. C. WALTON. .
