" - A hundred years ago today, Jan. 19, 1807, at the old Lee homestead T.n Virginia, was born Robert Edward Lee, the centennary of -wb'ose' birth is celebrated today throughout the South and even in in many Northern cities.

But it is not alone his military greatness that made Lee the ido of the South. His heroic character as a patriot won for him their lasting: homage, it is true, and placed him upon the pedestal I?ame, but it was as much his characteristic qualities of Christian manhood and of innate nobility that endeared him to the South and won for him a reverential lovesuch. as has rarely crowned the life of any man, be he hero or statesman. Lee has been pointed out by many writers as the highest type of American manhood. Skilful and intelligent, brave and chival rous, loyal to his friends and gen - erus to nis toes, Honorable in cvary dealing of his life, he stands preeminent among men of whatever nation as one worthy of regard and admiration. That the truejestimate of this great American's charac ter is becoming general throughout his country is evidenced by the following tribute to Lee from recent number of a Northern maga zine, the Outlook: The time is not distant when in every place where the statues of heroes are placed for remembrance and for inspiration the figure of Robert E. Lee will stand among bis peers; when the cities of the jtforth-will set his effigy in public places, and tell his story to child ren in ine scnoois. ine tune is not distant when the image of Lincoln will touch the heart of every man of Southern birth with a sense of his human greatness, liis human tenderness, his human wisdom, and monuments to his noble memory, will rise on South - era soil- for he was the truest friend the South had in its darkest days. In such interchanges of sacrifice, nobility and greatness, the tragedies of conflicting convic tions are finally reconciled, and the world is moved forward into the light of a happier day." the work of tbe,board to stand, or knock it to pieces.

What's In a Name? One evening at dinner a lady who had the reputation of being the most inveterate "kicker" at the hotel asked the waiter why the de sert served her was called ice cream pudding.'' "If you don't like it, ma'am, I can bring-you something else," the negro politely replied. "Oh, it's very nice, indeed," said the lady. "The name is all I object to. If they call it ice cream pudding they should serve ice cream with it." "Well, ma'am," replied Jhe waiter, "that's just our name for it. Lots o' things called that way. You don't get no cottage with a cottage pudding." Deafness Cannot be Cured by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed con dition of the mucous lining of the Eus tachian Tube. When this tube is inflam-J ed you have a rumbling sound or imper fect hearing, and when it is entirely clos ed, Deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to. its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condi tion of the mucous surfaces.
