Of tho many tributes to •
• Genera I*v that of the elo •
quent Hon Benjamin it Hill •
• deserves to rank with the •
• best: •
When the future historian •
• comes to survey the charac- •
• tor of Lee he will find It rising •
• like a huge mountain above •
• the undulating plain „T lot- •
• inanity, and tie will have ?.. *1
• Jiff fils eyes toward heaven * '
• to catch Its summit, lie pos- •
• sessod every virtue or the great •
• commanders, without their vl- •
• ces. He was a foe without •
h-'te, a friend without re- •
• proach. a Christian without •
• Hypocrisy, a man without •
• guilt. He urns a Caesar with- •
• <Hlt h!s ambition, a Frederick •
• ^without bis tyranny, a Najml- •
eon without his selfishness, a •
• Washington without his ro- •
ward. Ho was obedient to •
authority as a servant, and •
• ,Ioyal In authority as a true •
king. He was gentle ns a •
woman In life, modest and •
pure as a virgin In thought. •
wattdiful as a ltoman vestal *
Jn duty, submissive to law as •
• ^ocrntes. and grand In battle •
• as Achilles.** * .

Go. Glory and forever guard
Our Chleftan’s hallowed dust;
And. honor! keep eternal ward:
And, fame' be this thy trust
Go, with your brightest, emblazon
ed scroll,
And tell the years to be
The first of names that flash your roll
In ours—Great Robert Leo.
Leo wore the Gray' Since then
'TIs right’s and honor’s hue;
He honored It—that man of man—.
And wrapped It round the true
Dead? but his spirit breathes;
Head' but his heart Is ours;
Dead! but his sunny, sad land
His crown with tears for flowers
A statue for h1s tomb*
Mold it of marble white -
For wtong. a specter of death an I
An angel of hope and right
Rut Lee has a thousand graves;
In a thousand hearts., I ween;
And tear-drops fnll from our eyes
1n waves.
That will keep his memory green
Ah! Muse, yon dare not claim
A nobler man than he;
Nor nobler man hath less of blame.
Nor blameless man hath purer name.
Nor purer name hath grander fame.
Nor fame another T.ee,
—Ry Father Ryan.
Mem than two years ago when I
was‘111 In Rome, f called to my relief
a German physician and In the course
of one of our conversations I remark
ed Incidentally that I had served 1b
the army of Lee His face at once
Do you know that rheumatism cm
be relieved? If you doubt this just
try one application of Chamberlain’s I
Pain Halm. It will make rest nnu
aleep poaslble, and that certain 1;
means a great deal to any one af
flicted with rheumatism. For 'Bale
