THE PENS ACOLA JOURNAL, SUNDAY MORNING, APRIL 20, 1913.
Section Three. EVENT ERSONAL INTERESTING By CELIA MYROVER ROBINSON PEOP N MEMORY OF THE SOUTH'S HEROES. . "The twenty-sixth day of this month is a hallowed day in the South, for it is on that day that we pay respect to "our soldier dead." The day is one that we should never allow to pass into oblivion, but rather make it a, day of growing importance, a day held in the deepest reverence, a day In which trembling old age and buoyant youth should mingle, and with the blossoms of spring smother the unmarked graves of our departed heroes beneath an avalanche of flowers. Hallowed by a supreme sanctity are the graves of our soldier dead. So it was in the days of the ancient races, and so it will be when the last war has been fought and the battle flags are forever furled. Those who have offered themselves as a sacrifice for their flag and their country, who have endured the hardships of camp and march, or who have fallen in the red carnage of battle, have a peculiar claim upon the gratitude and affection of succeeding generations. In no land has this claim been more freely recognized than in, our own; and no people was ever so generous in its tributes to its fallen heroes, or in treatment of those who came home from the wars. When returning spring time brings the flowers. In all their eloquent beauty and symbolism, we celebrate a Memorial Day which is characteristic of the people of the South. But it is a noticeable, a shame ful, and lamentable fact, that the day is not being observed in the present as in the past. Is commercialism, which is robbing us of many tender ties, to invade the storhouse of memory and take therefrom this beautiful and pa triotic custom? Nay; suffer it not to be so. There is a North, a South, an East and a' West, but they are all parts of a united and stupendous whole. The men of the North and the men of the South cherish the same sentiments of liberty, glory in the same common memories, and love the same old striped and starry banner, which is the ecarred and priceless legacy of a thousand battlefields. But to the van quished., nothing is left but the sacred memories, the untold deeds of valor, and these we must cherish, even as a mother nurses and cares for her babe. Lt each coming Memorial Day Instill into us a greater desire to perpetuate the memories that should never die. Let us show the coming generation how to observe the day so that they, too, may on each 26th day of April in years to come see that time will not dim the beautiful custom of the men and women of the South paying tribute to the heroes of the greatest war In the history of the world." ; The above is but a part of an editorial appearing recently In the Gads- , den County Times. Its appeal rings with truth and sincerety. Let us keep this Memorial Day in such a way that it can never again be said: aa it has been, with truth, in the past that Pensacolians are lacking in that love and loyalty that should be paid to those Wrave men of a sacred past whose deeds of valor shall ring down the corridors of time. Let each and every one of us make it his or her sacred duty to not only attend these memorial services, but to send flowers and give assistance tn every way possible. It has been suggested that those owning automobiles tender these to the committees in charge. This is a good suggestion and should it be carried out it would assist greatly in the successful observance (f Din day. The United Confederate Veterans, Ward Camp No. 10, under the direction of Adjutant Boykin Jones, will form in front of the Blount building, on Mal lory Court, at 3:30, in the following order: Minister and orator in automobile; Wyer's Band, Companies I. and Jt, oT the state troops; the veteran fire men; Boy Scouts, Confederate Veterans and Sons of Veterans. ' Plans are being formed to make the observance of Memorial day, the most elaborate and beautiful ever held in Pensacola. The program will be carried out under the auspices of the Ladles Con federate Memorial Association. The parade will proceed to Tt. E. Lee square, where the ceremonies will take place. Ttv. K. L. Mclver, pastor of the Knox Presbyterian church, will open the services with prayer, and will be followed by Mr. Kirk Monroe, orator last year, who will introduce the speaker of the occasion, Mr. Oliver J, Semmes, grandson of, Admiral Rapheal Semmes. one of the South's greatest heroes. ' Following the address there will be a song by Mrs. Anita Osborn Benn, accompanied by Miss Cora Louise Simpson, violinist, and Mr. Abraxa Dlas, celloist, and Robert Diaz, cornetist. Crosses of honor to the Confederate Veterans will be presented by Mrs. R.

Holt, pastor of the First Methodist church. Three volleys will be fired by the companies M4 and L. after which taps will be sounded. v Mrs. Horace L. Simpson, president of the Confederate Memorial Associa tion, and the ladles associated with her in this order are bending every en ergy to see that the South's heroic dead and the living heroes who wore the grey, are honored as never before. The Ladles Confederate Memorial Association will be assisted In the marking of the graves and in the decoration of the monument by the Unit ed Daughters of the Confederacy. One hundred and ninety-one graves will be marked, Miss Daisy Hyer, chairman of St. Michael's, Mrs. C. Tbiesen, chairman St. John's, and Mrs. R. Pope Reese, president United Daughters of the Confederacy, at the National cemetery. The graves will be designated by small Confederate flags and the wreaths will be of the beautiful grey eouthern moss. Every man, woman, and child, In whose veins courses the blood ef the men who fought so valiantly to protect honor and home and country should do homage to those valiant men on Memorial Day, April 26th. THE SUBURBAN SONG. Come Into the garden Maud, And help me plant the seeds Of vegetables of divers kindsV The which our family needs, And which we must attend with care In hopes that they will grow; For if they come up as we planned, Dear Maud, I do not know. Take up the little plough I bought. Ball bearing In Its pride, And while I dig the soil well up. You rake the other side; And get the trowel I just bought. To dig of holes, the rows. And put the seeds deep down In them, They'll sprout there, I suppose. I have subscribed, as you did say, To garden magazines. And ordered all the catalogues From roses unto beans; And yet I have my doubts, dear Maud ' And dajly grow. they double. If in this garden you and I Raise any thing but trouble.

Grand moss-draped oaks, where the mocking blrla sing. Shade on the hillside, and shade In the street. Where, ever In chorus, many bird voices ring. Flowers are bloomrng m gorgeous profusion. Fining, like mist, with their frag ranee,- the air, Roses so sweet, fill the "heart with con fusion. Like dim, mystlo dreams roses, bloom everywhere. Beautiful houses dot this sweet little city; Many church- spires tower, the green trees above; Like the arms of the Savior, reached out tn his pity, i To bring the strayed Iambs to God's told and His love. What sweeter sketch could great painter ask for? What more, ask a poet aa theme for a rhyme? No scene more entrancing can claim their attention Than sweet Tallahassee tn tender springtime.
