For a generation the northern heart wsb fired by the fear of ' the south in the saddle." but all Amtr , ica is glad that the dread has evsp.- orated into thin air and gone the gone way of the "negro in politics." j Calm thought during a campaign was impossible while these buga boos confronted each other on t v erv stump and the world is young er and hope fairer for their disap pearance.

Massas chusetts has reason to be grateful to this reconstructed "Reb" caval alry leader, for he was the first in in authority to be touched bj the suffering of her boys and to per sonally provide for their comfort.
