In the course of an address lasting a little less than an hour, presented ? graphic portrayal of the life and work of Alexander Hi Ste? phens?a life which, lie said, was truly dedicated to the arervloc of country ami humanity. He Ibid of his early strug? gles for an education and his subse? quent triumphs in the face of bodily Infirmities and the opposition of ene? mies. ?His career as teacher, law stuil'tnl and lawyer, struggling against poverty ami disease," said Mr. Brantley, "mak? ing up in brain ana will power what nature had denied 111 111 ill body, i'J tllO magi'' Htory of success, the story of the man unafraid, the story of the tri? umph of mind over matter. D.-.spite his many and serious handicaps, lie marched steadily onward and upward, until he had climbed to the summit of renown and power as a great and suc? cessful lawyer." Touching upon the part played by Stephens in the struggle 1,et w Jen the States, the speaker said of the Confed? eracy's Vice- ['resident: ? lie urged moderation, but men werj not moderate. He appoaled to reason, i.ut reason would pot oome.

Mr. Brantley saw a deadly parallel Ism between the stnta of the national mind in the day of Stephens and at the ! present time. "Conservatism in our day," he said, 'has become to many a term of deris? ion. This is one of the distressing signs of th? times. Under present-day false teaching, to he called a conserv? ative Is to he reproached and tainted 1 with suspicion. It was so In Mr. Ste? phens'* day. and he, too. met with de? rision I.ause he :wns a conservative.
