partment, be said that he found a beV
tor audience here than anywhere. He
found intelligent farmers, eager to ob
tain new and practical ideas. Professor
Newman is a practical man and Lau
retiB farmers know him well. He al
ways has something to say worth hear
ing and remembering.
It would bo a good idea to have the
matter of fertilizers Iho central sub
ject of a Laurens institute. This is
perhaps the most important topio be
fore the farmers at present and bne
which is not generally understood.

MEMORIAL DAY CELEBRATED;
CROSSES OF HONOR PRESENTED.
Great Event in Laurens in Honor Confederate
Soldiers, Living and dead?Col. John P.
The observances of Memorial Day
and presentation of crosses of honor by
the Laurens Chapter of Daughters of
the Confederacy Friday afternoon made
tho greatest event of the kind that has
taken placo in this city since tho beau
tiful custom of honoring the Confed
erate dead and living was inaugurated
by Southern women. An audlenoa of
not les9 thau 800, inoluding about 100
war worn Veterans, fully 300 school
children and the Daughters and Sons
of the Confederacy and citizens,
crowded the court house at 3.30 P. M.
whoro the address of Co!. John P.
Thomas, the orator of the occasion,and
other exorcises were hold.
The court house h3ll was profusely
and tastefully decorated with. Confed
erate flags aud bunting, pictures of
Loe, Jackson, Hampton and other
leaders of the Lost Cause hung upon
the walls and everywhere there wa9 an
abundance of llowera. Tfia most strik
ing and inspiring feature of tho occa
sion was the attendance of Confederate
vetorans. Nearly 100 of these who had
come from every section of Laurens
county, 6ome of them a distanco of 2A
milos and one or two from other coun
ties, occupied seats within the bar to
tho loft of tho speaker's stand. Most
of them wero aged and venorable men,
many of thorn bore the signs of ill
health and approaching infirmity and
not a few came with armless sleeves or
walked on crutches or "peg leg" but
all of thorn were happy and proud in
the consciousness that they were pres
ent to recoivo tho insignia of imper
isnable knighthood from the women of
con, SIMPSON Si'BAKS.
Henry Young Simpson, the oldest
son of the lato Chief Justice William j
Dunlap Simpson, who commanded a]
regiment in Stonewall Jackson's dl-<
vision and lator served in the Confed-j
erate Congress, presided and intro
duced tho speakerd. Among distingu
ished visitor.! wero General O. Irving
Walker, commander of the department
of Northern Virginia, U. C. V , and
George Savage, chief judge of the Or
phans' Court of the City of Baltimore
and a son of that George Savage whose
Virginia homo was the toene of the
sanguinary battle of Savage Station.
The proceedings wero opened with a
fervent and eloquent prayer by Rev.
Watson B. Duncan, pastor of the First
Methodist Churcb. The 800 children
of the city schools, led by Superintend
ent B. L. Jones find the corps of teach
ers then sang'Dixie" in which many
of the audience joined, the veterans
leading in a cheer to the grand old
song at its conclusion.
Mr. Simpson, who by tho way is one
of tho most eloquent and attractive
speakers in this state, then introduced
Col. Thomas in a brlof live minutes
speech which aroused enthusiasm.
Col. Thomaa was greeted with
hearty cheers. Be opened with a beau
tiful tribute to the work of the women
of the South In preserving tho memo
ries of the Smthern Cause, and alludod
to bis having made an address in this
same hall 35 years ago, in the cam
paign of 1803, when tho seeds of De
mocracy which came to full fruition in
the campaign of 187? were sown.
Touching upon events subsequent to
the War ho spoke in high terms of the
action of S.o-etary of War Hoot In of
fering to print the roils of the Confed
erate armies as well as tho~o of the
Federal. He then spoke of the War it
self. "Without disparagement of tho
s-rvices and heroism of the m'lltary
branches of I ho Confederate govern?
in.in'," ho sa'.d, "I think that not oven
in the South has there bei-n fu'l appre
ciation of the statesmanship of the
Confederacy. Tho wisdom and labors
of the Confederate Senate and House
of Representatives which finally re
sulted in tho formulation of tbo Con
federate Constitution, ui Instrument
conceded now to have been superior to
that undor which wo live, have never
been valued a9 they deserve.
He paid an eloquent tributo to Presi
dent Jefferson Davis, tho head of the
Confederacy and representative of both
its civil and military Pfe, describing
him as the one man worthy to receive
and wear the mantlo of Calhoun who
with tho mhid ot an Aristotle had re
duced the justice of Southorn rights to
unanswerable and impregnable terms
of logic Then he plotured the Con
federacy's chief as occupying an even
more sublime If pathetic placo in his
tory when for years without murmur
but i q willy wit lion' apology he bore
the.'ciorated hat-ed of the South's
unforg'vlng enemies and finally, when
heoamytodle, was able to bake the
last sacrament of his Church with the
full forgiveness of his perseoutors on
bis Hps. Col. Thomas spoke with elo
quence and from time to time was ap
plauded and cheered.
A PRRTTV INOIDKNT.
In dosing he read a letter from
Judge O. G. Thompson who was
a member of Co. G. of the Third Regi
ment to Captain T. J. Duokett, briefly
sketching the history of the old regi.
mental flag which is in possession of the
survivors of the company and whioh
they bore on this ocoaaion. The letter,
which was lately published, related the
incident-, now historic, of the color
bearer, Sergeant W. B. Lamb, refus
ing to obey the order of General Ker
shaw to hand It to him at Obickninauga
and Lamb's reply that he would carry
It where he was ordered?which he did
for 1000 yards to a treo which General
Kershaw pointed out anc which is near
the spot on whloh tho South Carolina
monument on Snodgrass Hill stands.
After reading the Incident, Col. Thom
as requested Sergeant Lamb to como
forward. The aged hero, bont and tot

which aroused tho enthusiasm to the
highest pitch,?a Utting c'imax to the
ceremon'os. Judge Savage arose and
asked tho Indulgence of the audience
for a few moments and requested Ser
geant Lamb to como forward. Sergeant
Lamb responded and in a few words
Judgo Savage asked to present him
with a souvenir of the occasion, declar?
ing that having hoard tho story of tho

Col. Thomas spoke In high terms of

Col. Thomas has had much to do
with tho preservation of the rol!s of
tho soldiors in the war. During the re
union in Columbia he sent General
Carwile a telegram cordially approving
action of the Veterans in endorsing the
plan of the War* Department to carry
