Lrecled at the Crater by
Petersburg Chapter,
U. D, C.
Times-Dispatch Bureau,
103 North Sycamore Street,
Petersburg. Vs., April 25.
The granite marker, erected at tho
Crater by Petersburg Chapter. Daugh?
ters of the Confederacy, to the memory
of Mahone's Brigade, was unveiled this
afternoon with Imposing and Interest?
ing ceremonies. Some 200 persons wero
present, representing mostly the chap?
ter of daughters, the Ladles' Memorial
Association and the Ai P. IUU Camps
of Confederate Veterans and Sons of
There were also present a number
of veterans of Mahone's Brigade from
a distance, among them Colonel Robert
Henry, of Tazewell, and Major R. W.
Jones, of Mississippi. Attornoy-Gcn
eral Samuel W. Williams was also
Past Commander George S. Bernard,
of A. P. IUU Camp, presided, and In?
troduced those who were to take im?
mediate part in the ceremonies. Tho
exercises were opened with an earnest
Invocation by the Rev. Charles R.
Strlbling, of Tabb Street Presbyterian
Church, which was followed with the
singing by a chorus of the hymn, "lloW
Firm a Foundation."
The ilrst speaker Introduced was
Past Commander P. II. Drewry, of the
Sons of Veterans, representing the
Daughters of tho Confederacy. His
address wns brief, devoted mnlnly to
an explanation of the work done and
to be done by Petersburg Chapter, U.
D. C. In tho way of placing markers
to commemorate the historic fields and
events of the war. The llrst marker
was placed on the battlefield of Juno
!>, ISC I. In which the old men and boys
of Petersburg displayed such signal
bravery. The last was that Inveiled
to-day to tho memory of Mahone's Bri?
gade. The purpose of the daughters
in the main Is memorial, designed to
perpetuate the memory of tho heroic,
deeds nf the war, and they are plan?
ning for a large amount of work in the
naturo of the erection of markers and
monuments In the future, by which
they will have a battlefield park of
their own. without assistance from the
Federal government. Mr. Drewry paid
n high compliment to tho women of
the South and their patriotic Vork.
Assistant Attorney-General R. B.
Davis was next presented. His duty
wns to Introduce the orator of tho day,
Colonel William M. Stewart, of Ports?
mouth. Mr. Davis performed tnls duty
very happily and gracefully. But he
took occasion In Ills brief address to
pay noble tributes to the Confederate
soldier and to the women of the South.
Especially did he commend the bravery
nf the men of Mahone's Brigade as
displayed in the battle of the Crater,
when the SOO men of the brigade
charged upon the 15.000 Federal sol?
diers in tho Confederate breastworks,
hacked ns they were by 00,000 men'ln
close reserve. Mr. Davis pleasnntly In?
troduced Col. Stewart as the fighting
lieutenant-colonel of the Sixty-first
Virginia Regiment, which regiment
occupied the centre of the brigade 'in
Its memorable and successful charge.
Colonel StetvnrPn AdilresM.
Any synopsis of Colonel Stewart's
address would do It injustice. It was
an ornate, eloquent, splendid presenta?
tion of the side of tho South In the
wnr, and of the never-dying rights and
principles for which that war was'
fought. It was conservative and true
In Its premises. No nobler tribute was
ever paid to Southern heroism and to
Southern leaders; no more Just and
beautiful tribute was ever paid to "the
good angels of the war," the women
of the South, in their unparalleled ex?
hibition of lovo and patriotism, than
were those embraced in Colonel Stew?
art's address. He paid a splendid trib?
ute to General Mahone also, and said
that if he had been given command of
a corps early In the war he would
i have made n record as brilliant as
that made by any Confederate gen?
eral. Colonel Stewart eloquently ex?
tolled the work of the womcit of the
I South, and especially that of the Pe
! tersburg Chapter of Daughters.
At the conclusion of tho address the
murker was unveiled by Miss Olelia
Mahono McGIII. daughter of Mr. and
I Mrs. William L. McGIII, of Gils city,
I and a granddaughter of General Ma
j hone. The exercises wore ended with
the bcnod'ctlon pronounced by the Rev.
j C. B. Bryan, D. D.

Second it is purely vegetable and con?

Third, it is a tonic, prepared especially
for the use of weak women.
Fourth, it is a specific remedy for wo?
men's many ailments.
Fifth, it is easy Id take, obtainable in
