IN WAR TIMES
J. Pluss, formerly of this
Benjamin Chapter, U. D. C.,
strains of martial music, and as state
after state seceded; to the booming of
the one cannon, owned by this patr!
otic little town.
Then in the April following this
winter was the battle of Fort Sum
ter, S. C., and the awful, fratricidal
war was on. Our grand young men in
their suits of gray, hurried to the bat
tle front in Virginia; -most of them
never .to return, for, at the months
passed, so often +loved ones, wrap
ped in the Stars and Bars for which
they had (ied, were brought back to
sorrowing homes, the low red mounds
in our sacred "Odd's Acre" grew
rapidly in numbers.
'Hut I must hasten, not allowing
the garrulity of age to make you
weary; it is especially of our 'women
during these four years of awliul war,
I promise to tell you; they who so
patintly, so wisely and -so bravely
met the issues of civil strife and its
Very soon after the breaking out
of hostilities the sea ports of the
south were 'blockaded and no goods
from abroad could be brought in, so
the Southland was made to .be depend
ant on its own resources and -proved
itself erual to the emergency, not be
in'- then, as now, a manufacturing
center, the clothing for all was made
by hand. Wool was :wa-hed, carded,
suun and iwoven into splendid cloth
by hand, then .made into garments by
the same tolling fingers, for the sowing
machine was an almost unthought of
luxury. Then cotton was carded and
spun, -dyed with root barks and ber
ries to make the beautiful dresses
worn by the women, than which, none
of the ginghams of -today ar4 more ex
quisite than these garments made by
the Irothers, wives and sisters during
these years of war.
I think it would amuse you to know
the substitutes used for coffee;
parched wheat, rye, okra seed and

At last the end came, when at
Appomattox Gen. Lee, to greater
forces surrendered his sword. Weary,
io.'risore, and discouraged the 'brave
men in gray walked back to changed
conditions in their homes. Then with
them, the women who had struggled
so faithfully, picked up the sadly tan
gled threads of life and undismayed
by disaster, wove a now destiny out
of this chaos.

brothers and husbands and sent them
out to battle for the right, many of
them never to return, but their stcep

Where Poppies hIlow."
And now another pleasing duty is
yours; the continued development of
the wonderful resources of delightful
Florida, the home of sunshine, flowers
and -happy bird song.
You will, we well knmw, prove
yourselves in this work, worthy of
the women of '61 whose example is an
incentive to all that is noblest and
best in this busy life.

but with the golden radiance of the
