is accomplishing, several big things
that have been needed a long time
but they need co-operation to carry
out other big things that are on their
program.
The work that is being done in
the old cemetery is attracting very
favorable notice; it is proposed to
make this nlot of about eight acres
a place of beauty. There are some
very old some very interesting mon
uments there, heroes of the revolu
tionary war, heroes of the Mexican
war and heroes of the civil war, all
lie here. Make a pilgrimage out
there, you will be interested and
your pride aroused.
Decoration Day was fittingly ob
served here Sunday afternoon under
the direction of the U. D. C. The
Confederate monument was wreath
ed in flowers by the children Of the
Confederacy, who also carried gar
lauds to the graye of Major S. A.
Jonas, for whom the chapter is
named. The City Hall auditorium
was tilled with an appreciative au
dience. Mr. B. H. McFarland was
master of ceremonies; appropriate
and interesting short addresses were
given by Dr. W. G. Sykes, Mr. Geo.
Leftwich, Jr., and Rev. James Cun
ningham. I he music was under
the direction of Mrs. Napier; south
ern songs were sung by a quartette,
composed of Messrs. McCaskill, Mc
Farland, Broyles and Peugh, and
one of our sweetest gingers, Mis9
Janie Maier, sang lovely "Some
where." A long procession moved
to the cemetery where the graves of
the Confederate dead were literally
covered with blossoms. It was one
of the most successful occasions of
the kind that has been held in years.
Tonight the University of Missis

ed Aberdeen on last Friday. Her
remains were brought here last Sun
day from Hartford, Ky., where she
died, and was accompanied by her
son, Mr. George ykes, and her
daughters and son-in-law Mr. and
Mrs. Stafford Hewett, Mrs. Margaret
W illiams, of Hartford. Ky. Mrs
Barbour was Miss Emma Pauline
Moore, of Columbus, and was a
noted belle and beauty of those
wonderful ante-bellum davs. She
married Col. Columbus Sykes, son
of M. G. A. Sykes, and lived in the
old homestead for several years. Her
husband was killed during the war
by a falling tree; he had just return
ed to his command from a furlough
that was granted him, to bring back
the body of bis brother who had
een killed in battle.
Mrs. feykes was a brilliant figure
in those days of the old South that
leld so much of tragedy and ro
mance.
Mrs Sykes afterwards married
Mr. Pollock Barbour, of Louisville,
and never lived here again, but this
was the place and the neonle she
oved and where she wished her
body to lie. She was buried on the
Sykes family plot in the Odd
ows Cemeterv.
A rather strange coincident was
that she was hurried on the U. D. C.
Decoration Day. This organization
was organized by her soon after the
war.

Maj. S. A. Jonas chapter of the
