BIOGRAPHY OF MR. GRAIJY
The deatb of no journatist anywhere
in the United States has ever created a
profounder sensation. There was genu
ine sorrow at the premature loss of a
man so admirable personally, and so
gifted intellectually. There is a feeling
that a real calamity has befallen the
country. Mr. Grady was many-sided,
and each facet of his brilliant mind spark
ling with a lustre of it own, and that
mind was one that gained in splendor
with each new test of its genuine worth.
Measured by years, his trial was a brief
one; measured bv results, he had accom
plished already what no journalist, no
orator, had ever attained, with excep
tions so rare that they scarcely present
themselves in comparison; and he had
effected what none other had done in
the troublous times since the war,
gained patient, candid, willing hearing
in a section where candid presentation
of a distrusted section were rebuke akin
to insult. Those were noble sentiments
uttered by the men of Boston. In time
they may be the voice of the whole
North. When men of each section be
lieve and trust each other, then comes
lull and complete pacification of till mis
understanding. We present the following outline of Mr.
Hon. Henry Woodfin Grady, says the
Chattanooga Times, was born in Athens,
Ga., in 1S"1. During his boyhood he
ujoved the best educationaladvantages.
hut the four vears of the civil war scri-
insly interrupted his studies, and much
of his time was spent in visiting the vari
us points where his father, Col. Grady,
was stationed with his regiment.
When peace came it found the hid
,'athcrk-ss. Col. Grady having fallen in
battle while leading his men in a desper
ite charge. Young Grady found that lie
mid no time to lose equipping himscll
or his career. Alter graduating at the
State t'niversity he went to the t'uiver
sitv of Virginia, where he took a post
graduate course. He was, during his
term in each of these institutions, the
louugest student in attendance. He
aiiilicd diligently such studies as suited
his lient, and paid but little attention to
studies in which he felt no interest.
iHistorv, belles litters, Anglo-Saxon and
;",reek attracted him, and his standing
was very high in all of these.
I'rom the first his command of lan
guage was remarkable. His pen trans
erred his thoughts to pa)er in graphic
and growing phrasts with lightning like
rapidity and his ready, magnetic style ol
quaking won for him the name of the
' Silver-Tongued Orator." In the literary
societies ot the two universities he car
ried off the highest honors as a speaker.
DRIFTS INTO JOt'KN'AMSM.
While still a student, he wrote a letter
to the Atlanta Constitution. It was
printed and the editor was so much
struck with the sparkle and dash of the
.omuuinication. that he signified his de
sire to hear from the writer again. When
the first press excursion alter the war
was tendered a ride over the "State
ioad," the editor telegraphed his boyish
correspondent who had 1 hen returned to
hi Ivinu '.n thens, that he wished to
. ami 1 1 '.: .'.dy ) represent the Consti
