soldiers battled was not lost, and
paying tribute to the life and ser vices of the South's most distin guished soldier, of whose birth this day wAs the anniversary. Dr. Cromer said that only a few days ago many assembled here to pay the last tribute to one of Lee's great lieutenants. This was Lee's day, and it was fitting that the peo ple shduld assemble that the women might honor the survivors of the Confederacy, the followers of Lee. These guns here were of a different pattern and belonged to a past generation, the shadows of whose survivors were lengthening towards the east. Dr. Cromer drew a beautifui pic ture of the South as the "land of memories." He pictured the field of Gettysburg-the field of monu ments, with its, tablets recording the history of Federal commands, with its hundreds of monuments marking the positions of Federal regiments, some of them costing as high as $8o,ooo and $9o,ooo. There is one Confederate monument on that field marking the highest point reached in the tide of success by a Maryland regiment. Complaint was made by the Grand Army of the Republic because the Confederate regiments, when allowed to erect monuments, desired to mark the high tide of their success. And so, that complaint having been regis tered, barring that one Confederate monument, that field is a field of splendid Federal monuments. But the visitor standing on Cemetery Ridge and beholding the monu ments erected there to Federal valor and devotion, is struck most of all with admiration and wonder and awe, not that the Federal army was able to hold the heights, but at the courage and devotion which actu ated the Confederate line as it swept up those heights and like a gray sea beat on the rock crowned sum mits. We have the memories if not the monuments. Our great leader taught us heroism in defeat. "It was my fault." It was not his fault. His followers knew it was not his fault, and yet in his big heart that magnanity which marked lis character out from that of all- other men was willing to assume the re sponsibility. Gordon, said Dr. Cromer, had compared the battle of Gettysburg to the battle of Waterloo, marking the high tide of success and defeat But Napoleon; fled from Waterloo practically deserted, while Lee withdrew in defeat but not in des pair and even in that dark hour he held the supreme confidence of his men. Dr. Cromer read the magnificent tributes to Lee and to the "sword of Lee" from Ben Hill and Father Ryan, which he said should be learnedi by the children of the South. The dominant note of his character was the voice of duty, "stern daughter; of the voice of God. Imagine that the time may come when the descendants of one of you, said Dr. Cromer, addressing the veterans, rumaging among the effects of your family may come across thisglittle cross, whose in trinsic value is only a few cents. And the child may ask, what' is this? There may be gold medals and unbounded wealth there. But what is this? On one side will be read, "United Daughters of the Confederacy," and on the other "Deo Vindices, 1861-1865," and on the corners "Southern Cross of' Honor." And then somehow, by a tradition in the family perhaps, it will be found out that no one other than the one on whom it was be stowed dare wear it, insignificant in value as it is. He himself could not wear that cross without violat ing the laws of his. State. The next question wouldjbe,-What wete the naugtramf rhennfed&rrev and the iext, Where is the Southern Confederacy? I ask you survivors, Where is it? What have you ac complished? Were your services given for nothing? What flag did you follow? A flag that floats no where on land or sea. What govern ment did you serve? A govern ment that lives only in memory. What have vou to show for your services? Scars and old guns and tattered flags. The Southern Confederacy has given to us, first of all,-given to to us so that it shall hereafter be wrought into the very structure of government,-the right of, local self government, a right never to be im paired. It gave to us a soldier, moved by patriotism and duty, who showed us not -only how to win victory-the Revolution gave us that-but how to die and how to live. Had it given us only Lee and Jackson, examples to the youth of this country. not a|drop of the blood that was spilled would have been shed in vain. When the world to day would find examples of leader ship in war, examples of character in leadership, the world looks to the South. And not long ago a North ern statesman took the postion that the Federal government would be fore the middle of the present cen tury erect a monument in theCapitol Square to Robert E. Lee, n:>t as a rebel, but as the finest example of American' manhood, %orth, dignity, bharacter and courage. No synop"sis will do justice to Dr. Cromer's address. Many an old oldier was moved to tears and that they appreciated it and loved the man for it utterances is the highest tribute that can be paid it. On motion of Dr. E. P. McClin ock,. Dr. Cromer was elected an onorary member ot the James D. ance Camp and the thanks of the Veterans, the Daughters and the 3ons were extended to him for his magnificent address. Crosses were then conferred up >n the following veterans, according to the rules governing their bes towal: P. F. Day, R. Y. Leavell, AL. B. Mayer, W. P. Pugh, G. F. ells, H. T. Fellers, E. C. Jones, ik. H.'Miller, H. C. Moseley, Dr. G. A. Setzler, Thos. F. Tarrant. Others who would have received :rosses were not present. The exercises closed with the inging of "Di~xie," all standing and aking part, and the benediction by Dr. McClintock. The next meeting of veterans will, e held on the ioth of May,-Me norial Day,-and crosses will be :onferred by the Daughters on that ay. . N Imnaugh's Way. A woman (not in Newberry) nce advised one of her young fri nds to never, never, ne-;er marry newspaper mnan. Shi said she knew what she was tafl ug about ; hat she had married one and that the big bundle of papers, from all over the country, which he-brought ome every night nearly drove her razy-because they were filled with the most astonishing bargains in stores a hundred miles away. Well, now, that doesn't apply to this town and some of its merchants. Mimnaugh fills much space right here telling of the most astonishing bargains, and .no gentle woman has any excuse or reason whatever in not being satisfied with his advertise ment in the Herald and News and the bargains he offers therein. He does an immense business and it in creases yearly and rapidly. He piles up good goods and the people buy, and he keeps on piling up and hav ing them pulled down and disposed of. He believes in advertising. Read his advertisement, ladies and gentle men, and then you will know what to do, and when and how. WVhen people are in love with eah other they don't fool anybody abou it ment themselves. ARRESTED FOR VAGRANCY. Laura Williams, Who Has Been Masque rading in Male Attire, is Now Serv ing Sentence. The State, i8th. Laura Williams, of newspaper fame, who has been masquerading in male attire for several months, subjected to the hardtst toil of com mon laborers-at cne time working as lineman for the Bell Telephone company at Tryon, N. C.-last night slept a prisoner in the city jail of Columbia. The pathetic story of the girl's disappointmnent in life has been given publicity, the tragedy closing in on an orphan girl at 14 years old, working at what she could sometimes the meanest labor. Final ly facing the inevitable, she made a last brave, bold stroke for an hon est life, donned man's apparel and went forth into the world with a light heart and a ready hand to do things as men do. Her sex from time to time being discovered. she was driven from pillar to post seek jag work. Arriving at Newberry last week her sex was again dis covered upon search by police offi cers, who believed "he" was John Long, implicated with others in obtaining money under false pre tenses. Money was contributed by citi .ens of Newberry to clothe her properly and to pay her railroad fare to Columbia, where she could obtain medical attention, of which she was in extreme need. The girl came, to Columbia and was found by Policeman Brown Sunday night at midnight wandering around broken down from nervous shock. Yesterday morning Laura Wir .iams was arraigned in the re corder's court for vagrancy and as she had no defense only of having no friends, no money and needing medical attention, the recorder had her taken to the city jail where she could have proper care and pro tection. The girl has only one suit . of lothing and as she will probably remain a month in prison, the ex tent of her sentence, all contribn tions of clothing and edibles of a light nature such as fruit wiU be grateful to her in her present con dition.
