VETERANS JO THE FRONT!
C:; lighters of the Confederacy Honor Them.
Crosses of Honor Awarded. \
They Christen the New Coart House on Lee’s Birthday.
The assemblage at the Court
House, on Thursday, 19th inst. of
Daughters of the Confederacy and
Confederate Veterans, fur the be
stowal of Crosses of Ho ior, by the
Baldwyu Chapter of Daughters of
the Confederacy, was the most no
table and enjoyable public event
that has occurred in this city for
many a day. The recently organ
ized Harrisburg Chapter of Daiigh
ters of the Confederacy attended
iu a body and participated in the
proceedings. There were about
seventy five of the aged veterans
present every oue of whom showed
the deep emotion with which they
joined iu the interesting exercises.
At 2 o'clock p. in. the Daughters!
of the Confederacy formed iu line’
iu the spacious rotunda of the mag
nificent uew structure with the vet-1
erans restiug on their left, iu liue,
adown the northern corridor, un
der command of W. 'A. Dozier,
Commandant of J. M. Stone Camp
of U. C. V. As the big clock in
the dome struck two the line of
march was taken up, with /he Bald
wvn Chanter, led bv its president.
Mrs J. B. Youugblood, followed
by little Misses Hallie Savery and
Linda Kiucaunou, who carried the
tlag of Col. W. H. H. Tisou’s reg
iment m the civil war. There were
followed by the Harrisburg Chap
ter, led by Mrs. L CL Y- Baker,
pro ideut, after which came the
veterans, iu double tile. At the
door they were met by Capt P. M.
Suvery, who, assisted I v the pret
ty and efficient ushefs for the oc
casion, Misses Minrose Kincannoii
and deffie B-lle Mitcbn^r, they
were directed to seats in the audi
toriu in.
As the procession entered the
hall Mrs. Elizabeth Harris, presid
ing «t I lie piano, greeted them with
strains of beautiful and inspiring
music, which was continued at fre
quent intervals throughout the cer
emonies. In this she wnsassisted
by an improvised clioir composed
of (lie best talent of tlip city. The
music rendered consisted of olden
time songs and instrumental pieces
which awoke old memories and
carried the battle scarred heroes
hack to the scenes of the war.
When al' were seated a fervent
and eloquent prayer was offered by
Rev. J. T. Cunningham:
(,iod of all life, (toil of nil truth, mid
Hod of nil grace. (Joel of our fntliers.
Hod of our imniorlnl dead: mid of our
heroic living! God of our Southern mnn
hnod—the highest tvpe of Self-Sacrifice
mid devotion, nnd the symbol of nil flint
in nine, nnd true, nnd beautiful. God of
lie brave and dauntless private, who
lan d to do. to suffer, and to die, and
.• ho. aMer-all, must stoi in ttie works,
and niri-v the enemies rcbmlits. God of
Sidnev .lohii-ton. Itoliert E Lee. Stone
predation from all present. When
she had dosed Mrs. Will Stocks
rend a paper whieli told of the la
bors and successes of the organi
zation and which was very enter
taining. The address of welcome
was made by Capt. r. M. Savery,
our popular old veteran, who nev
er fails to strike a responsive chord
when he talks to ht& comrades
about war times. He was especial
happy on this occasion and his old
heart was running over with joy
when he looked upon the griz
zly old vets receiving their crosses
of honoi
After these introductory pro
ceedings Mrs. Youngblood then
bestowed crosses of honor upoD
each veteran who responded to
his name and came to the front to
receive it, a list of whom is given
below, Each of the old heioes was
greeted with applause as lie came
forward aud it was plainly visible
that all of them looked upon the
leceiving of the cross as the crown
ing honor of their lives. They
seemed to regard it a* a reward be
stowed by the loveliest of women
for the sufferings and privatious
which they had endured in their
vouth lime and prime of manhood
in the defense of the holiest cause
ever espoused by a noble and chiv
alric people.
Col. R. S. Thomas spoke for the
Army of Tenneesee in his usual
felicitous way and Lieut. J. 11.
Strain said a few words jn praise
of the soldiers of the Army of Vir
ginia. Mrs. J. L. Fiuley favored
the audieuce with the gentle s .ng,
“Lorena” which awakened tender
memories in the breasts of all who
recalled it as the universal favorite
iduriug the war. Comrade Strain
sang the old soug “Touting on the
Old Camp Ground” and gave to it
the pathos and melody of its war
time renderiug. These features of
thp occasion were greatly enjoyed
and appreciated.
When the crosses had been be.
stowed Rev C K .iarsliall feel
ingly uttered the closing invoca
tion and the meeting was dis
missed..
This meeting was an appropriate
ceremony for the installation of
the noble structure of which Lee
county can boast as its seat of jus-'
tice. President W. M. Roberts,
lion J. C. Calhoun and Marion
Martin members of the Hoard of
Supervisors were pres, ut and wit
uessed the happy and impressive
ceremonies and received many cor
dial commendations for tliert* z al

Paderewski, the worldts greatest
piano virtuoso, gave a concert in
the chapel of the IndnstrRl Insti

was attended by the largest and
most brilliant audience that ever
assembled in Columbus. Special
trains Were run on both the South

and there were people present from
nearly every town of importance
in East Mississippi and tn*»y
c tiue from towns and cites in cen
tral and southern sections of the
State.
It is impossible to desnibethe
peculiar charm and facination of
Paperewski’s playing Ilis delicate
touch, the deep feeling which lie
puts into his playing and llit? flu

eciiou is rendered all proclaim the
fact, that lie is by instinct aud
training an artist, ami after hear
ing him one easily understands
a by he has achieved such great
fame that he is today recognized
as the most brilliant piano virtuoso
that the world has ever produced.
