"The Lost Cause," a "Confederate
war record," published at Louisville, Ky.,
where the Confederate Reunion will be
held on May 30 and 31 and June 1, 2 and
3, in its May issue eclipses all previous
attempts at magazine publishing. Thirty
pages are devoted to the highest class of

prominent Southerners, monuments,
buildings, cemeteries and other things of
current interest. On the first page of the
cover is an engraved poem, " With the
boys of the Sixties," showing a typical |
ex-Confederate on his way to the reunion,
with his knapsack, uniform, canteen,
leggings, his old musket, and other
necessities for warfare. A history of
Louisville adds considerable interest to
the publication; also a picture of the pro
posed Winnie Davis Home for Orphans
of Confederate Soldiers to hi erected at
Luray. Va., by Rev. H. M. Wharton,
whose portrait appears. Two pages are
devoted to the Knights Templar Triennial

Mr. J. Shirley Smith, who has had
considerable experience in the mineral
world.?having been associated with
Prjf. M. Arnott (an Englishman) for
four years in southwest Virginia?has ac
quired an enviable knowledge of miner
als. For the last two months Mr. Smith
has been prospecting in the Blue Ridge
Mountains only a few miles from Charles
Town, and has located some very fine
deposits of mauganes. zinc, silver, lead
and asbestos ores. He has had analysis
made, showing these minerals to be of
great value. If Mr. Smith can show any
great quantities of these ores he has cap
talists who will come here and invest in
these properties. So there is a great
chance for some of our good people with
idle money to assist in these develop,

Capt. C. Frank Gallaher, Adjt., Charles
Town. W. Va.
My Dear Comrade:?I have the honor
and pleasure to acknowledge receipt of a
certificate complimenting me as au active
member of the John W. Rowan Camp,
908, of your city. I do not know of any
thing: that has afforded me greater pleas
ure than this courtesy. I remember the
old Captain for whom the Camp was
named, and old Company A, which he
had the honor to command, as though it
were but last week when we parted. But
this brings to mind fresher than ever the
memory of those days and with all the
trials, tribulations and vicissitudes of
those days, many pleasing recollections.
It is to be my great pleasure to enter
tain at my home during the reunion our
dear old Chaplian Dr. Hopkins, and j
look forward to that personally as one of
the great treats of the reunion, and lie is
also to preach in the Second Presbyterian
church?the church of which Dr. Stuart
Robinson for so many years was the
pastor. I am also to be honored at my
home during the reunion by Gen. Jas.
A. Walker, and Capt. Rannie Barton,
and possibly Col. Arthur Cummings, of
the 33rd, it he is able to come (he is now
79 years of age).
We have also engaged the old Stonewall
Brigade Band, of Staunton, and that will
head the Virginia Division. I sincerely
hope I may have the pleasure of welcom
ing a goodly number of my old comrades
of Charles Town and Jefferson County.
Our preparations here are on a large scale
and both our pride and our ambitions are
aroused to make it the greatest of all the
reunions of the Confederates. We shall
spare no money or labor to that end.
Thanking you again most sincerely for
the honor conferred upon me and request
ing you to convey my thanks to the Camp
for the honor conferred, I am
John H. Leathers.
