THE PASSING OF THE VETEKANS.
They are passing into the shadow. with
their croeaee on the breast,
Tha Knightsof Southern Chivalry, the
men who wore the gray;
They are passing into history, with faees
toward the West,
Where dies the ruddy afterglow that
crowns the warrior's day.
The serried lines are thinner, growlng
thinner, year by year?
guns, are white instead of brown.
Upon the cheeks unblanched by war,
there falla the furtive tear,
And tha ranka are eloaed in silence aa
time mows a eomrade down.
Soon the bugle calls resounding, shall
awake the days that pass,
Soon the roll will re-eeho in the haunts
that once they knew;
But the clarion shall die aobbing low,
amongst tbe billowed grasa,
And the roll call find its answer, hid
beneath the violet's blue.
Yet the deeds they wruught in valor
shall rise upward 1'rom the sod;
Their proweas, born of n*hu of men,
give birth to glorious song,
Like incense from Valhalla shall their
faith float up to God.
And aacrifice blot out the night of eal
umny and wrong!
They art passing into shadow, with their
croaaea on the breast?
The fiower of Southern Chivalry, the
men we love to greet;
But they bear within their hearta of
gold all we have loved the best,
Our sorrow's crowd of sorrow, and
the arictory of defeat.

THE LEE GENEALOGY.
[From the Richmond Times-Dispatrh
Genealogical column of August 4, 1907.
From records compiled by Gen. Stephen
D. Lee just before his death, and Maj.
Alex. Y. Lee.]
We have already given the pedigree
of the Lees, of Virginia, as descended
from the Lees of Cotton and Langley,
in the county of Shropshire, England.
There waa, however, a younger branch
of tha Engliah Lees, which seems to
have been an offahoot from the original
parent stock, which bore dif7erent arms
and migrated flrst to the Barbados,
auad thence to South Carolina, settling
at Oaarleston early during the eigh
teetatsi century. Going back to about
the taaae of Henry VII, we find that
there waa a Robertus-de-Lee, born at
Bridgworth, a town near Cotton, Shrop?
shire, the seat of the Lees. This Robert
waa granted the arms as given above,
December 20. 1593. He became Lord
Mayor of London. 1602. and in 1606 he
died. Harry Lee, oae of his sons, was
eaptain of a compaay in the city of
London, who bore the aame arms as
Sir Robert, his father. This Henry
Lee had a aon, Francia Lee, wbo moved
to tha Island of Barbados with Mary,
his wife, taking with biua the aame

to hear il! His aberration of aight

usual aud intercating excuraiona for a

Owing to the fact that the Judge had
to leave early in order to meet another
engagement he coramenced to speak
about 12 o'clock, after s stirring intro

and contained many warm Mann men,
though the entire audience was atten

Only once during the course of his re

of his opponent and that waa in telling

upon hia own merits and fitness. ex

WANT TO MARRY THEIR SUPERIORS
When ? man marries, in order to
marry hia equal he muat marry a wo?
man with a vote. The argument is
that when a man marries, in order to
marry his auperior he must marry a
woman without a vote. And the argu?
ment is a strong one. lt is just be?
eause men do not want to marry their
equals that they are ready to listen to
the voice of the great majority of wo?
men and not inflict the ballot upon
them. No aensible, ordinary, every
day man wants to marry his equal. He
wants to marry his superior in all the
fruits of the spirit, which are love,
joy, peace, long-suftering. gentleness.
goodneas, faith and temperance. None
of these things would be promoted by
giving women a vote.?Baltimore Sun.

too rough when he apeaka of what he
calla the Virginia political machine aa
"agang of political trickatera" with
headquarters in Washington? "Gang"'
and "trickatera" are pretty hard words
and have significance diatinctly criminal
and offenaive. Certainly the great
majority of the men prominently
identified with what is called the ma?
chine appear to us to be very respec
table citizena. We cannot recall tfiat
any of them have tricked anybody or
atolen any thing. Thoae of them who
are in otfice went before the people in
primary election, aubmitted theirclaims
and their record and were chosen by
the free and direct vote of the people.
If they hang together and help each
other and play into each other'a handa.
it is no more than their opponente do
and ia legitimate political policy.
It ia not right, in any condition, to
speak of a number of decent Virginia
oitizena as political trickatera, eapecially
in view of the fact that the power they
hold is direct from the majority of the
white votera of the State. The ma?
chine man who blindly and widely aticks
to his crowd or hia leader aimply be
ajajaa he feels that he belonga where
he is, may be, perhapa, a proper object
of amusement and may fall far short of
the higheat ideals and purposea of
citizenahip. But for all that, he may be
a very honest and well-meaning man
and there is no senae, that we can see,
in trying to present him before the
public aa a criminal or an outcast. The
lesa of that kind of talk we havo the

election will be over presently and we
may have a tolerably tough job electing

vote and the cloae co-operation of both

party to pull through.
And after the general election most
of ua must live and do buaineaa here in

ought to pull together for the upbjild.
