Although the weather was cold
ftt-d threatening there were a num
hcr of confederate soldiers pres
ent last Friday to receive their
crosses of honor from tho Daugh
ters of the Confederacy, and every
one enjoyed the day to the fullest
The veterans aseemblcd al the
home of Mrs I) I) M et-oil, presi

J) C, where they wore cordially
received and trented to coffee, cake
and fruits. Before leaving, each ;
etenm was givon a red bandanna
handkerchief, which they tied
around theil" necks to protect
them from the cold wind during
Thc veterans marched to the
court house, preceded l>y tho
Daughters of tho Confederacy.
The pupils and teachers of tho
Murchison school also marched in
a body to attend the exercises:
Sheri if J li Green, comnandor j
of Camp Hcnagan, presided.
Chaplain .1 (J Richards invoked
divine blessing. DD McColl Jr
then addressed the veterans as fol
i "Members of Camp llonagan,
and Honored Confederate Veter
"You are assembled herc today,
at the request af thc Marlboro
Chapter U DC to have bestowed
upon you Crosses of Honor. You
should be proud to to receive this
gift, although it is of no intrinsic I
value. lt binds together thc sur
vivors who strugglco in a cause
they deemed right and just, mid
many thousand have been distribu
ted throughout the south. It sig
nifies that the wearer of this bil of
bronze, has earned the right to a
fame no less enduring than that ol
the brave men who held tho pass
at Thermopyloo. The daily forti
tude, thc unchanging loyalty, thc
unflinching bravery, that marked
thc days from Manassas to bloody
B?ntonvillo, aye, to Appomattox,
shine, resplendent in thc history
of our Southland. The hardships,
pain, hunger, thirst, and heart
achings of those days arc known
to the bravo men who sit before
me. So are thc sorrows and dis
appointments, that came with the
darle day ol' defeat.
"None ol' these trying experi
ences, need the veterans try to
toll tb this generation. They
would not comprehend it. These
memories, sad and hitler, arc thc
heritage only, of those1, who wore
tho gray, of those who carried the
star and liars to ramparts, around
which whistled tho death dealing
bullets, and then grounded thc
blood stained folds in the dust of
"As you sit by peaceful firesides,
the little crosses will stir memor
ies ol' battlefields, where valor
^strove with might, and you will
recall some w ho feil on thc sodden
soil. You will remember those
who returned with .cou, and for a
lime bravely and loyally fulfilled
life's every duty, until ono by ono
they dropped out of your ranks.
They ii rc not horo"toduy to receive
tho token that you arc priviledged

Because of this fad, shall \\ r

loft no sons to transmit their

our duty to remember them with

mind you that thc little band of
women whose energy and gener
osity have secured this badge of
honor are the same whoso untiring
efforts reared that white shaft out
there, which tells a story of glory
to all who stop to read. They are
of tho kimi, who soothed your
burning brows, ano! bound up your
wounded limbs in the hospitals of
the military service. To fasten
this token of valor over brave
hearts will be to thom a willing

of love ami sympathy. They would
gladly smootho away every care
and trial from the pathway along

As the aged and honored veter

up a chem-, and when thc name of
Sherill' tireen was called, there
was another cheer. There was a
prolonged round of applause when
the distinguished .Joshua ll Hud
son went, forward, and after that
the school boys applauded evrey
When the names of .John S
Moore and James L Stubbs were
called, the veterans and audience
