I have seen him sway vast audiences j s
its a field of grain before a gale, at t

vuls<id with laughter, the next silent |
with the closest attention as he dis-1 c
cussed some intricate subject, and: h
with tear-dimmed eves as he de- i
picted a pathetic scene. Grady had t
not only a most captivating voici and ; I
rare eloquence, but the few address-: t
ts he made were exquisite word- \
painting and yet his language was so t
beautifully plain, and his illustrations! n
io vivid and pointed that he charmed t
*nd captivated alike the learned and. e
illiterate. ; t

in conversation his mind was kept i e
busy. Wherever Grady went Jim t
Holliday, his faithful stenographer j
and secretary, was at his side, pencil I c
and note-book in hand. When a 11
bright thought or expression flashed (
through Grady's mind he repeated it! c
to Holliday and he jotted it down.1 p

the day and all deemed worth preserv-! a
in# wjere rec orded, under suitable t
captions in a notebook kept for this b
J>urpcse. So when Grady was to de- a
li%Ter an address he drew on these j C
% totes for sentences germain to the 11
subject. It was like stringing pearls. j v
Grady was a delightful companion jt
Juad one of the most genial and pleas-; 1;
km men I ever knew. Everybody j
if as hit friend and enthusiaetic admir- d
ir, and Grady loved the whole human j G
taee. I never heard him speak an: f
unkind word of any one and when I
he died it could be truly said of him d
that he left not an enemy behind. si
-Grady died in the zenith of his j ii
hme. I Was with him on at pleasure j C
J*BGt of several days anu the nextjc,
time I looked upon his face his body a
was lying in state in an Atlanta;
church and an unbroke.i line of sor- t1

like Hoke Smith than Grady. But. tl
Hefery Grady has a monument far t<
more endorng than marble or bronze w
implanted in the hearts and affections; cl
Of'every Georgian and Atlantan that|r<
Irill endure as long as memory re- G
mains. tl
Grady had a soul and heart as large
the universe, and a nature so hope-'Q
ful and. buoyant that- not even ad- k
"Varsity could daunt. Atlanta was un- a
Questionably built by Grady and his ^
faith in the future of the place never 11
Grady has always been my true and
loyal friend and 1 ne?er called on him ?
for a favor but it was unhesitatingly
granted. Ke cared only for^money to s
Spend it and' died comparatively poor r
and in debt. ,?
To show the great and care-free
heart of Grady, one Christmas eve a _
fanner admirer sent him a big fat ti
turkey. After dark he started home,
a darkey trailing behind with bird in
hand. He haa gone a few blocks
"When he met an old crippled beggar,
who approached him with the plea: t(
"Mister, will you give me a quarter 0
to'ard gittin' a dinner for my folks, as?t
we ain't got er thing ter eat at my
house?" _
I fc>
'Sure I will, old man," replied Gra- t
dy as he ran his hand into a pocket, I j
wh^n he remembered that he, too, was j jj
dead broke. 0
After thinking an instant he called a
the darkey to him and told him: c
"Here, give that old fellow the tur- "
key. His family needs it worse than
I do. I'll have half a dozen invita- "
tions to dinner and no one will think'ti
of inviting him!" So wth muttered's
thanks the mendicant marched away p
carrying Grady's Ghrstmas turkey. b
But no plutocrat ever got more en-,c
joyment of the good things out of life, s
than Henry W. Grady. No trouble e
or adversity could daunt his buoyant, v
happy, hopeful spirits. Atlanta idol- k
ized him and gave him her best, i
Georgia loved and honored him and
whatever Grady did was right with

ih session when Grady received a tele-' *
gram announcing the assurance of,s
Cleveland's election. With enthusias- ?
tic audacity he went to the capitol, it
marched up to the speaker's desk and F
seizing his gavel, rapped the house to o
order, and adjourned that body in the a
name of the first Democratic presi- i:
dent elected since the Civil war. The j
fission ended in howling, riotous en- f
thusiasm. c
At that time Grady was editor of 1
the Constitution and his paper owned i
a small cannon that Grady himself
loaded and fired from the roof of his 1
>ffice building to celebrate a !><>no
ratic victory. i
Grady loaded his little cannon to ;
mnounce the reflection of .Mr. Glove- |
and but we Democrat., were defied. <
iVlien the news came in Grady vrote ;
>n a sheet of paper the words, "A ;
Charge to Keep I Have." Th;j> paper
le pasted over the touch-hold :>f thai
ittle loaded cannon, put It <*w:;y and I
tated that the gun was not a.'.vin to (
) ? fired until another Democratic;
K5uUn4 was elected. !,
But when Cleveland was again

It was then the new was flashed
ver the wires, on the wings of ciec- j
ricity, that the Republicans conceded;
Cleveland's election and his party's'
lefeat. In an instant the sheet of

oice of that little gun almost seemed '

mta. i f
Only a short time before Grady's:
eath, on invitation of Phil Davis, |T
ieorge Grogan, myself and other ]
riejads Grady visited Elberton (where j
was then living)- and spent several j
wJtK us Hp delivered four'
ayo mm ?
peeches to immense audiences, one;l
i Elberton, one at a point in South:*
'arolina where the Tugalo and Senea
rivers unite to form the Savannah, ]
nd two in Elbert county.
We arranged to take Grady on a j
tvo days' trip down the Savannah;
iver, using a flotilla of old-style;
oats, propelled by negro boatmen i
ith poles, such as were used by 1
lanters to carry their cotton to Au-j
Grady thoroughly enjoyed that trip j
nd acted like a boy just dismissed:
rom school. As the boats pulled off j
that fnllnwpd Gradv i
) the river bank bade him farewell j
ith cheers and waving handker-j
hiefs. But as soon as the boats j
>unled a bend in the river Henry!
rady shacked his pants and was in | >
ie rivf~ trying to duck a darky. It.
'as hard to believe him the same elo-j
uent orator whom an hour before j
ad thrilled and delighted thousands!
nd had them laughing cr w!-:i tearimmed
eyes as his subject was amuslg
or pathetic.
The first night our party pitched
amp at Brown's ferry on the Georia
side in Hart county. Soon after j

re landed Grady asked me to Lane a;
trail with him and walking up the'
oad a short distance we took a seat
n a log.
I asked Grady what his aspirations!
ointed to assuring him that he could,
hvays command me to the ut most ex- j
His reply was, wGantt, there is no j
osition or office within the gift of!

That night Grady collected the ne-;
ro boatmen around him and had
hem singing their quaint melodies.;
ust before I dropped off my last wale
ng remembrance was Gradv sitting!
n the ground with his back against;
large white oak tree and his colored
hoir standing around him singing, I
Jesus Locked in the Lion's Jaw."
I was waked by Grady shaking me.;
Gantt, I never had anything to so,
Duch and impress me as those negroes

athos in their voices that nothing j
