Fair and well beloved Tennessee! 1 have seen her when her towering mountains seemed to stand on tiptoe to kiss the passing clouds; I have seen these same clouds gather together in battle array, and with streaming banners and flashing fires aud roar ing cannon, I have seen them beat and storm and rage against her rock ribbed but impregnable battlements; I have seen them driven back and with a scream of rage seek their haunts amid the deeper .defiles of her mountain gorges.

They are ex cited and embittered by it, and for ihis reason alone, if for no other, it should be suppressed. The Lexington Daughters of the Confederacy in asking that it should be excluded entirely in the future, give as good reasons that the best citizens and old families living iu and about the city were once slave owners, as a heritage and not of their own choosing; that the inci dents of "Uncle Tom's Cabin" are not typical of slave life in Ihe South but of isolated case; that the pro duction of the play, and its being advertised with bloodhounds aud pictures of an old negro iu chains aud a slave owner with a whip in bis hand, give a false idea of the hisiory of the times to the children of the city, and is disrespectful to Southern geutlemeu and g od citi zens.
