The Birmingham Age Herald
Bays: "The South looses producers
when it fails to get a full share of
the newcomers, but the purity of
Anglo-Saxon blood is better main
tained in thin section than it is
elsewhere in this country, and this
is something to brag of at any rate.
A little less purity and more pros
perity would however be prefera
ble." Commenting on the above, the
.Nashville American covers the case
entirely and correctly, aud the
Bulletin endorses every word it
says, which follows: 'Right here
is where we differ. Prosperity is
one of the most enjoyable things we
know of, but if we have to choose
between it and a contamination of
the blood we shall say 'Take pros
perity and be switched.' The
South wants desirable "immigrants
bat it is not sighing for the off
Bcourings of Europe. It has one
problem on its hands; it does not
want others of the same character-

Chattanooga, Tenn., June 14.
Senator VY. B. Bate arrived in the
city to-nigrht and will be here for
several days. Senator Bate said:
I am in very good health, and
if I am as well when the time comes
I will undoubtedly be a candidate
for re-electiou. Whether or not I
will have serious opposition, of
course, will develop later. How
ever, everything looks promising
now and I am well satisfied with the
"I think the Democratic outlook
nationally is very bright, but I
disagree with some of the leaders,
who are hunting for candidates for
the presidency this early. Senator
Hanoa evidently had some idea
about his party when he suggested
the impropriety of indorsing Roose
velt at the last Ohio convention.
To bring a man out now is" only to
expose him to the light of publicity
and set the opposing party to fight
him before the time comes. I am
heartily in favor ot letting the
questions of choosing a candidate
rest until we see what the situation
and the issues are to be. Then we
Can select one that will fit the case.
"As the situation now stands I
have no doubt that Judge Alton B.
Parker would be nominated if the
vote were to be taken to-day. How
future developments will affect his
candidacy we cannot know. He is
conducting himself very modestly
and with propriety, I think the best
coarse for him is to avoid public
attention as much as possible until
the campaign opens. The great
danger to a man in his position is
that everything he does is closely
scrutinized, bad motives are im
puted to his action and his utterances
are misquoted by the opposition."
The Meaning; of Lee's Name.
1 have been interested in the
press discussion of the proposals to
place the statue of Gen. Robert E.
Lee in the National Capitol as one
of Virginia's two representative
eons, and beg a little space in your
colums to set forth the views of a
Southern woman on this topic.
Were Gen. Lee alive, he would be
the first man to earnestly protest
against the placing of any effigy of
himself where it would offend any
body of the American people.
But he is dead, and his name is left
as a sacred trust to the thousands
who loved him.
If Virginia has any right in the
councils of the nation, if she has the
privilege to place the statue of any!
of her sons in the national halls,
she has the just right to set there
that of Robert E. Lee. If she en
joys the privileges of a State, she
has the same right to determine who
of her renowned sons shall repre
sent her as other States, North,
East or West.
Virginia did not follow Robert
E. Lee out of the Union; she se
ceded through no voice nor vote of
his; bat he obeyed her call to her

sons and followed her behest. Had
he but chosen to betray his State,
he might have been the victorious
commander of the Union forces,
instead of the defeated leader of the
Confederacy. He might sleep to
day in place of Grant in the nation's
great tomb at Riverside, instead of
in the chapel at Lexington. When
Montgomery Blair, on behalf of
the United States government, at
the beginning of the national
struggle, tendered Lee the office of
commander in chief of the Union
forcts, aud Gen. Scott, his lifetime
friend, reproached him with his
defection, he replied in these mem
orable terms: "Slavery? Had I
four millions, they were free! Se
cession is but anarchy, but I cannot
raise my hand against my State.."
Who of all her children sacrificed
for Virginia as Lee? Not Jefferson
nor Henry; not Washington, even.
Lee gave fortune and his beloved
home at Arlington. His three
sons imperiled their lives for her
cause. He shortened his own life,
and was soon followed by his de
voted wife, lovely Mary Custis.
Does Virginia owe aught to the
memory of Robert E. Lee?
But it is not as a brilliant general,
as a man of lofty character that his
statue should find place within the
Capitol walls. L?e stands for the
whole South, as Lincoln for the
North. By tacit consent the South
lifts up Robert E. Lee to the world
as her representative and cries,
"Estimate us by him" the Bayard,

nobility, the chivalry of the whole
Goes the ex-Confederate from
Texas, from Alabama, to Washing

corridors of the Cauitol? Does he

He thinks, "Famous statesmen;"
yet there is no emotion in his heart.
To him they are little more than
names.. But comes he suddenly
upon the statue of Lee, that gentle,
modest, kindly face that won even
his foes. Ah! the tears that he' is
not ashamed of come welling now.
"It is our Capitol," he cries, "and
one country now, for they have set
our Lee up here, and we would die
But the G. A. R. veteran conies
by, and he too pauses. "A spot-
less character," he says " a gallant
leader. But he was a rebel; he has
no right here."

outstretched hand and face aglow,

his lips, lets the arm fall rigidly,

Has the G. A. R. or any other
body of men, whatever their claim
on the consideration of the American
people, aright to weaken the bonds
slowly knitting together North and
South? The veterans of the G. A.

where all things shall be made plain.
Would they leave to their children
the legacy of a united or divided
country? If you would have in this
fair land no half hearted Americans

represents to the South in jio
Men may take the Southern hand;

" Examination of Teachers.
I cannot loo strongly impress upon
you the necessity for great care in
the examination and licensing of
teachers. Under no consideration
should an incompetent person be
employed to teach in the public
schools. We cannot hope for bet
ter schools until we raise the
standard required of our teachers.
You are to exempt from examina
tion only persons holding diplomas
from the Peabody Normal College
or certificates from the Peabody
State Institutes, or such persons as
have been in regular attendance at
the County Institutes and have
shown by previous examination aud
successful experience, under your
observation in the school room, that
they are worthy of such consider
ation, and these cases should be
very few. As a rule, I would not
encourage duplicating certificates
and I instruct against this.
County Superintendents are
directed to hold public examinations
at stated tinies and to give no
Annual Examination At close of
Second Examination First Fri
day aud Saturday in August.
Quarterly Examination Friday
and Saturday in October.
Quarterly Examination First
Friday and Saturday in January.
Quarterly Examination First
Friday and Saturday in March.
Fix the time and place for the ex
amination, announce beforehand the
number of hours to be consumed
daily and follow your announce
ment. Do not permit personal consider-
ation, importunities of teachers,
uireciors, or luuueuuai ineuua iu
any way to influence you in licensen
ing teachers. All certificates should
be made to expire at the close of the
scholastic year, June 30.
If you have not already done so,
you 6hould at once organize a
County Teachers' Association and
hold regular meetings. All teichers
should be urged to attend . these
meetings and their attendance and
work in su.'h meetings should be
taken into consideration in granting
them certificates. This is a good
opportunity to test their knowledge
of theory and practice of teaching.

His Last Hope Realized.
From the Sentinel, Gebo, Mont.
In the tirst opening of Oklahoma
to settlers in 1889, the editor of
this paper was among the many
seekers after fortune who made the
big race one fine day in April.
During his traveling about and after
wards his camping upon bis claim,
he encountered much bad water,
which together with the severe
heat, gave him a very severe diar
rhoea which it seemed almost im
possible to check, and along in June
the case became so bad . he expected
to die. One day one of his
neighbors brought him' one small
bottle of Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy as
a last hope. A big dose was given
him while he was rolling about on
the ground in great agony, and in a
few minutes the dose was repeated.
The good effect of the medicine was
soon noticed and within an hour the
patient was taking his first sound
sleep for a fortnight. That one
little bottle worked a complete cure,
and be cannot help but feel grateful.
The season for bowel trouble being
at hand suggests this item. For

If you feel fagged out, listless

impart natural activity to the liver.
