It was a coincidence that ex cited no little remark that this beau tiful May day should have brought an other guest great in this great nation. in tlm South beloved as no man has been since Jackson and Lee and the others of our own "fighting ne roes" laid down ' their arms. The great tribute of love and loyalty which our people have lata at tne n-'-t of Admiral Schley is a most rare trib ute to be paid to any man, even oy a nonnle made un. as our people are, so largely of the splendid qualities of loyalty and love. In the light or nis hard-won victory he became .the na tion's hero; but, -when hlg laurel crown wa's found, so lively, interwoven with poisoned 'thorns' the': South, whose "bravest are her tenderest, at t , took him for her own, and her people have kept him within the sanctuary of their hearts.

And that the splendid rentieinnn ereat In his simplicity and his gracious wife appreciated this outburst of admiration from the hon est hearts of .the people, was proven by his willingness to appi-m P,te no matter how small the gatuei lag 'to say a few words to those who were thus honoring him.
