Washington Post: The history 'of
the Daughter of the Confederacy U the
history of the New South. The name
of Winnie Davis was diiriti her life
time closely interwoven with every
movement to preserve ami sanctify the
past ; to make hopeful and arouse the
tuturo. 1 he personality of a young
girl, frank, generous, of rare strength
anil sweetness, has bceu graven on the
hearts of the Mouth, has entered into the
lives ot the people. It is a wonderful
thing, rare in all history. It is as in
ccinprehensihle to thos-i who have not
seen the great demonstrations of love,
reverence, worship, such geunine wor

those who have.
Those three days of the Confederate
reunion held in Atlanta, ., a lew
weeks ago, July 21, III!, 'i, heralded as
the largest and most successful reunion
ever held in the houtli, twinging to
gether for the last time, for many, the
old comrades of the Confederacy, are
also memorable in that they marked
the last public appearance of the
Daughter of the Confederacy.
It was in the morning out at the ex
position grounds, in the suburbs of the
"Gate City." it was dusty and hot: the
buildings looked tawdry and unattrac
tive in the white glare. The old sol
diers in slouch hats and long gray
beards, their worn gray coats tinged
witli the Uriah t colors of badges and
glitterof medals, lounged in the shad
ows of Moorish-looking walls, orlimped
about with their comrades in the midst
of as great a crowd as was ever galh

"She's the sweetest woman on Hod s

To a stranger in the South, one who
had heard of Miss Davis, as most
Northern people hear of her. a little in
detinitely, it must be confessed, the all-
prevailiug sentiment, the extravagant
ana universal praise, was surprising,
bewildering. What was she to be loved
so? The tiniest child by the peanut
stand looked up with smirched face.
"Miss Winnie's comnr today, lauy,"
and he smiled like a cherub.
True, she was the daughter of her
father: she typified the Lost Cause; but
that alone did not make her loved by
the little children.

In 1807 the General Assembly of

mission wiiose tiuty h was to select
a site for the town of Columbia.
Section 3 of the act says:

they shall proceed to purchase or

The town was laid oil in 1808. and

this morning the official exhuma
tion of the remains of Columbus
took place in the presence of Geii.
Blanco, Secretary Govin, the civil
governor, the bishop, the aean oi
the Cathedral and other authorities
preparatory to returning them to
Spain. The general public were or
dered out of the Cathedral at 8
o'clock and no one was allowed in
side after that hour. The entrance
to the Cathedral was guarded by a
orceofGtden publico, which kept
buck tlie crowds which assembled in
front of the edifice.
The remains of Columbus had lain
in their late resting place since Jan.
19, Ii9(), when they were brought
from Santo Domingo, that island
having been ceded to France by
oince tne aate mentioned tn re
mains had lain in an open niche in
the wall of the Pre-bytery of the
Cathedral, a yard and a half above
the ground between a pillar support
ing tlie main arch and the choir.
In 1892 there was placed in front
of the niche a slab, of doubtful artis

of the great Admiral and bearing
this inscription in Spanish:

Tobacco liatlonn For One Hundred Thous
and Grateful Soldier.
These war times have tried men's souls
in manv unexpected ways, but like a
shaft of sunshine and good cheer out of
the cloud of privation and endurance
has been the work that The American
Tobacco Co. has done among the I. S
Soldiers and Sailors ever since the war
began for when they discovered that
the camps and hospitals were not gup
plied with tobacco they decided to pro
vide them, free of cost, with enough for
every man, and have already given out
right to our Soldiers and Sailors over
one hundred thousand pounds of "Bat
tle Ax Plug" aud "Duke's Mixture"
Smoking Tobacco, and have bought
and distributed fifty thousand briar
wood pipes, at a total cost of betweeu
fifty and sixty thousand dollars
This work has been done quietly and
thoroughly, by established head
quarters iii each camo so that every
camp and every hospital of the I'uited
states Armv has been supplied with
enough tobacco for every man and the
SHilors on thirty United States Ships in
Cuban waters have shared with the
soldiers this most welcome of all
Perhaps it will be only fair to remem
ber when we hear the remark aaain
that "corporations have no souls," that
there is one American corporation
whose soul has been tried and has not
been found wanting in "practical- kindness."

After the four hundredth anniver

World by Columbus the Spanish
Cortes included in the Cuban budget
large sums for the purpose of erect
ing a fitting monument symbolizing
the travels of the discoverer, to be
placed in the most conspicuous place

mausoleum, the work of the Spanish

Washington, Sept. 23. A very
peremptory message of instruction
has been sent to the uuDan Military
Commission, aud by them made tlie
basis of a note to the Spanish Com
missioners. The authorities in
Washington will not make public
the terms of the note, but its general
tenor is that the United States will
not be satisfied with any further de
lay in the evacuation of Cuba. It is
to the effect that the terms of the pro
tocol called for the immediate evac
uation of Cuba, and that Spanish sov
ereignty must be relinquished. The
American Commissioners have been
informed that tlie evacuation of
Cuba can not be delayed.
