Ah, the depth and breadth of the
patriotism of that day. Young men of
the now South I lot mo toll you a story
which illustrates tho doathlcBS devotion
tho Spartan heroism of tho men of tho
old South : Col. Sampson VY. Harris, of
the Sixth Georgia rogimont, near the
close of tho war, was wounded in ono'of
the battlos around Richmond. He was
being carried to tho rear, and while lying
on the straw in the ambulanco, ho heard
the driver say to someone by the road
side. "Don't you want to ride?" The
atubulauco stopped, and ho saw tho driver
roach down and pull a man up ou the
seat beside him. Colonel Harris saw it
waa a wounded soldier. Ho spoke to the
man and asked how ho was wounded.
Tho poor follow turned in his soat and
showod him. His right hand had been
shot away at tho wrist. It was hanging
by tho shrods and teudous, the jagged
bono Btlcklng out from the arm. With
his loft hand, the soldier was clasping
his wrist above the wound to stop \ht
(low of blood Looking at his severed
right hand, the man said to Col. Harris ;
"I have a wife and two little children at
homo and so far as I know that's tho only
support thoy havo in all the world." And
then, as if ashamod of his momentary
weakness, ho said : " But I gavo it to
my country, and hero's anothor she can
have if sho wants it."
"A prince of the blood," said Col
Harris, "could havo knelt at that man's
feot and learned the losson of patriot
Can you wonder that with a spirit like
this animating tho soldiery of thefSouth,
it to >k billions of treasures and millions
of men and four years of desperato and
dead y struggle to form tho bitter word
" surrender,' through their tooth. It
was this spirit which made the army of
tho Bouth tho most destructive ongine
of war that over blow on battle field its
broath of fire, or harrowed opposing
forces with its toeth of stuol. It was this
spit it that left tho record of an army six
hundrod thousand strong nl its utmost
fighting capacity which placod tho names
of Heven hundred and fifty thousand
wounded and disablod survivorB of the
enemy on tho pension rolls of tho United
BtatoB, and which enrolled on the lists of
Confederate captives the names of two
hundred and sovonty live thousand Fed

And with all due honor to tho gallant
foeslcbluo who mot you in the san
guinary conflict, it can bo truthfully
said that your roll of captives would be
still longer if your broath could have
hold out at critical times and somo of
our Yankee brethren had been loss fleot
of foot. At least this must be bo if we
are to believe a Federal soldier's account
of ono of his uncles in battle which runs
as follows: "Yes, my undo William I
was a patriotio man. Ho was always
first In battle?coming home. The hat
tie of Bull Bun was a great battle. My
uncle William was there boldly fighting
for two days?sometimes on ono side

of tlte Barth.
Dog days. So many of the young
people write to me about dog days thai
I will answer briefly |that thoro aro no
dog days. It is nothing but a super-1
stition that has come down to us'from I
the ancients. The Dog star or Siriua
has its time to appear in the heavens
and rise and set like other stars, but it
is a very irregular time and no what
we call dog daya may begin the iirsl of
July or many days lator. The rising
of Sirius in a line with the sun begina
now on the 3d of July and will con
tinue until the 11th of August. Thoao
forty days wero behoved by the an.
cients to bring very hot and sultry
weather and many malignant discntce,
but this has been disproved by modern
astronomy, for tho appearance of Siriu?
is very uncertain and in the course of
time it will rise in the winter. Now a
little more about tins wonderful atar.
You know that we havo eight planots
that belong to our solar system. They
all revolve around tho sun just as tho
earth does and the nearer the planet is
to the aun the faster it travels. Nep
tune is 16,000,000 of miles distant and
it takes 105 years to get around.
But Sirius is away ontside of our
solar system and is 120,000,000,000 of
miles from us and gives 400 times
more light than our sun. It is ihl
largest and brightest star in the'
heavens. It Is called the Dog star bo
causo it appears to be inUhe tail of the
constellation that the afceicnts named
Major Canto Ol tho Big Dog. They
were a smart people and wo still keep
their map of the heavens and their
names of the stars, but they had no
telescopes and did not know that there
were any stars or suns except those
wo see with the nuked eye.
But now youug people listen. It is
now established aud proven ibat there
are millions of stars aud solar systems
afar off in space and that ours is tho
Bmallest aud the most insignificant of
them all. We are nothing and less
than nothing in tho scale of existence.
It has always boou a mysteiy to me
why tbo Creator of the boundless uni
verse, that has no limit, should have
chosen this little world of ours for His
greatest work, the Creation of man in
His own image, a little lower than the
augels, man who sinned and fell and
was redeemed by the sacrifice of the
Son of God. I don't understand it. 1
cannot comprehend, it. This little
world is not biggor than a cannon ball
compared with some of the planets and
s.ars afar out in space. It has but ono
little moon that does not condecoad to
show us but ono side of its anatomy.
The other night we weut out to Mr.
Graugor's beautiful home to look at
the full moon through his great tole
scope that cost 85,000?and is mounted
in a high observatory with a dome that
rovolves as the earth revolves. It was
a magnificent spectacle, but the view of
Jupiter with four moons and Saturn
with his rainbow ring and seven moons
was much more beautiful and impres

I ruminated on this yeatordny when
I reud what Hoosovult said in tri?
speech at West Point. The editor
who publishes it spenks of him aa our
woli tncauing, but impulsive proaidont.
Ho should have said our " conceited
and erratic proaidont." In speaking
of tho great men whom Weat Point
bad graduated, he said, "1 claim to be
a historian and I aponk what I know
to be true that Weat Point has turuod
out more great in.cn and more atatcs
men thnn any otiior institution in the
United States." It was solf-ccncoit
and ignorance that provoked auch a
monstrous absurdity, for Colonel
Sprnguo, of Yule college, has recently
challenged him to the proof nud has
shown beyond all cavil Unit Vale can
number 10 tunes the great men that
West Point can number. Among them
1,888 ministers of tho gospel?78
justices of supreme courts, 17 ohiel
justices,* 640 doctors,*.'!!) Governors of
States and .'IS United States Senators?
besides these Yale has sent forth an
army of educators, established 480 col
leges, 1150 fo- women and 8,000 high
schools while West Point has sent out
none but soldiers.
Teddy ought to bo ashamed of him
self, but he will not be. lie is not yet
ashamed that in his so-called hiatory
he called Mr. Davis an arch traitor
and repudiator and lo,d what ho did
when Governor of Mississippi, etc.
His attention has been called to these
malignant calumnies against a great
statesman and whoso curriculum ut
West Point tlint he ordained when
secretary of-war is still in force and
who never was a member of the Legis
lature nor governor of Mississippi.
No, ho is too conceited to tako back
