Followers of eu genics In the British empire are watching with dteep Interest the progress of little Eugenette Bolce, the first baby born in England in accord ance with the laws of eugenics. Eugenette's father Is of Austrian descent, born In California. He is the author of the "New Nationalism," - a book on economics. Her mother Is an English lady of Devonshire. Baby Bolce, at the age of seven months, Is displaying remarkable in telligence ' and already has a pro nounced sense of humor. Since the day of her birtfh she has been reared under the best possible health conditions. by the poet laureate of the chapter, Mrs. Lolita Lever Younge. The guest names were in gold. They were made up ' of state division presidents and prominent visiting members of the order. Mrs. John G. Harrison, president of the Stonewall Jackson Chapter, who presided, had at the table Mrs. Peter Youree, president of the Louisiana JDi vision; Mrs. Daisy McLaurin Stevens, of Brandon, Miss., the prospective president general; Mrs. I. W. Falsson, of Charlotte, N. C, second vlce-presl deht general. Mrs. Harrison repeated the words of welcome of the poet laureate, and introduced Mrs. J'eter Youree, presi dent of the Louisiana Division, by stating that some win love, some hon or and some respect, but Mrs. Youree had won all three. Every deed pro claims her sterling character. Mrs. Youree, in a brilliant response, urged upon the daughters their recog nition of present-day duties. "We are apt," she said, to look upon the past, but the past is dead, the future is un known, the present only is our own. Let us use it for the purpose of our order, for memory, benevolence and education. That we remember our monuments attest our benevolence; our homes for soldiers show, but edu cation, and here lies our opportunity. Daughters, we must educate the chil dren of the men whose bones ' are bleaching on Southern battle fields, in the principles their fathers died for." Mrs. W. J. Behan, the next speaker, in responding for the Ladies' Confed erate Memorial Association, which, as an organization, antedated that even of the veterans themselves, told of the work of the memorial women in hos pitals and on battle fields during the war, and who later organized to care for the graves of the Southern sol diers. While the memorial association builds monuments it has done other things, the restoration of the name of Mr. Davis to Cabin John Bridge, Mrs. Lolita Lever Younge read one of her charming poems, dedicated to the president of the Stonewall Jack son Chapter, and was warmly ap plauded. Mrs. Daisy McLaurin Stevens, the rare flower from Mississippi, as the president called her, made an eloquent address. After the Richmond reunion Mrs. Harrison said, one of the papers declared that Mrs. Steves' address was the best speech ever made by a wo man In Virginia. Mrs. Stevens was introduced with the hope that her ex ecutive ability and personal magne tism would in the future find even a fuller scope. Mrs. Stevens began with a humor ous story, but becoming serious, told how ready she always felt to speak on navthinsr connected: witn tne Jon federacy. however illy prepared she might be. She went on to tell most eloquently of what it means to be a U. D. C. It means, she said, that the veterans are to be cared for in their old days, to be wrapped in love and affection, their last days com forted till they lie down to pleasant dreams. It means that the children are to be taught that Jefferson .Davis is not a traitor, but a martyr io principles of state government. It is said that we are an organiza tion of sentiment, but was it not sen timent that caused the breaking of the alabaster box of ointment? Was it not sentiment that caused the greatest of gifts to be left by Him who said "Do this in commemoration of Me," in the little upper chamber? Let us cling to sentiment while there are duties of this kind to do, for The heart that has truly loved never forgets But as fondly loves on to the close. As the sunflower turns to her God when he sets The same face that she turned when he rose. Mrs. W B. Sommerville, president of the King's Daughters, reviewed the work of Ux carder, she told how its lamented president, the first president, too, of the Stonewall Jackson Chapter, had assisted at just such functions. Mrs. Sommerville told of Rest Awhile and the Thanksgiving dinner of her order. Mrs. L W. Falsson, of North Caro lina, said that she had no gift - of eloquence. The other speakers had expressed in beautiful language her feeling. When she said she was de lighted to be there it meant much. Mrs. Royden Douglas, president of the Federation Woman's Clubs, spoke a litle hir?f for suffrage and paid some prey compliments to the visiting women. Mrs. Orlando Halliburton, the reg istrar general, tirged that the records of the daughters be made complete by co-operation of all members of the U. D. C. Mrs. Marion Bankston, historian of the chapter, recognized in each vis itor a valiant woman of the South. Louisiana, she said, is the very nur secy of history, and she invited them to come here often. Miss Jessica Randolph Smith, of Henderson, N. C, whose father, Gen eral Orrin Smith, was the designer of the Stars and Bars, which were accepted by the Confederacy, made a tremulous appeal for recognition of her father's claims, which brought tears to the eyes of all present, and after which she broke down and sobbed. It was a touching little ap peal of a loyal daughter for honor for a dead father. Mrs. Lolita Lever Younge, who won the medal donated by Miss Smith for the essay on the Confederate .uniform, was presented to Miss Smith. The following toast to Stonewall Jackson Chapter, by Mrs. Marshall Williams, president of the North Car olina Division, was spoken: Here's to New Orleans, Upon our hearts it has a new lien; Here's to the Chapter Stonewall, Around our hearts it has builded a stone wall.
