Mr Alfriend then in-j troduced the orator of the evening. Rev J T Williams, in a happy little speech saying that he regretted not to be his comrade in arms, but lie was a coihrade in the gospel. Mr W Hiatus took for his topic Gen Lee a*; a soldier, as a gentle man and a Christian.

Mr Williams was introduced in an apt and well chosen speech by Mr T C Green, representing the alumni of the University of Virginia in Charles Town. A poem by J udge D B Lucas was gracefully rendered by Miss Eloise Beckwith, and Mr John Strother held the audience spellbound by his realistic reading of a weird German Folk Tale to which Poe had given subtle additional power Master Adrian Wynkoop recited •‘lhe Raven” with great natural charm, aud the1 Oval Portrait,"and “The Bel's” were rendered still more beautiful by Miss Janet Young whose exquisite and masterly technique were used as the ex pression of true literary insite The Confederate Veteran, This popular periodical, representing officially all of the general Confederate organizations, and which is the most ex traordinarily commended publication in existence, seeks increased circulation in this section.
