WON BY J.
S. MAYTUBBY, A CHEROKEE
INDIAN
In the Oratorial Contest at Trinity
College Last Week The Announce
ment of the Judges Wildly Ap
plaudedPresentation Speech of Mr.
Clement Manly, of Winston.
Ladies and Gentlemen: The honor
is mine to present the reward of merit
to him, who in this day's meritorious
efforts in oratorical contest, has been
proclaimed victor. Happy should he
be this day; standing a tip-toe," to
see in the coming days, the eventful
and noble career held out to him, of
which his past struggles and his
present triumph, constitute a true har
binger. A brother's piety and love
a virtue, which forms the essential
fabric of human happiness has found
expression in this donation and an
nual ceremony to decorate with the
cross of the legion of honor, the young
orator of Trinity College.
It was tender and ennobling to be
stow this gift. It should be with con
sciousness of lofty pride and aspiration
that the victor receives it The Wiley
Gray Medal.
It is a memory of one who lived
and died, and in his fate heroic death
lives ever again immortal.
He was a Confederate soldier! This
is enough to say. These words speak
his fame, but you will pardon, from
me, a reflection, a brief one: for, men
who were heroes in those days and felt
the red brotherhood of battle, are
hearers here to day, and I feel that
I should be silent.
It was the spring of 1861. The
nesting bird had scarce hatched her
young, when the clarion of war blew
its dreadful fatal blast; and for four
years the world witnessed the most
eventful struggle, the annals of the
human race records, a war between'
the same people, of like character, vir
tue and courage, and commanded by
the geniuses ot battle. For four years
all the world wondered. Every attri
bute of patriotism found its perfect
illustration, every exalted phase of
knightly character was realized and
exemplified; there was a struggle of
giants. The conflicts of past ages re
mained renowned only in the color
and glamor of the time when compared
with the actual recorded deeds of
this m'ghty carnage of war between
the States. With the mysterious won
der of childhood, we dream of the
gallant band at Thermopylae, or of the
red field of Pharsalia; our English
heart is fired by Hastings or Flodden
Field, and we thrill at genius' woeful
wreck at Waterloo; but the ages will
proudly speak when history enrolls
the names of Malvern Hill, Chancel-
lorsville, Spotsylvania and Gettys
burg. What courage, deprivation, suffer
ing, lofty spirit, pure impulse and
noble achievement, who shall paint
them? I stay my hand, and with pa
tience await to see the celestial brush
place on the canvas of history these
undying deeds of valor and heroism.
Pale and ineffectual will stand the
legions that rode at Austerlitz, or the
light brigade at Balaclava, besides
the gray regiments, which, with un
faltering tread, took up the steady
march to cross the open field, and up
the steep to the cannon crowned ram
parts of Cemetery Heights. Oh! for
the poet s tongue, the painter s hand,
that there might be revealed to after
ages this deed so glorious to our race.
Thus far in that fatal war our story
leads us. The end at Appomattox
came in 166s. I he thin ragged line
of battle pulled out until it became
a mere picket line of sentinels could
hold no longer, and the remnant sub
mitted to "overwhelming numbers
and resources." That banner which
had floated over so many triumphant
fields, was furled forever.
"Furl it, fold it, it is best."
In a little village of scarce three
hundred souls, nestled in the chestnut
woods of Piedmont North Carolina,
Wiley Gray passed his boyhood days
his footsteps, erring in the chase or
hunt, were set aright by the tall cliff
of old Pilot Mountain, which, sentinel-like,
looked down on every neigh
boring hilltop. Young, light hearted,
loved by family and friends, joyous
in the promises which life so fittingly
held out to him, he left the University
in his junior year, seeeking no honors
of office, but in the ranks, and 1862,
nineteen years old, went out to battle
an offering to home and country.
He endured the hardships of camp
and march and on the battle-fields of
Virginia won his spurs.
Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville
tell the story of his courage and devo
tion to duty, as he stood beside the
men in gray. He received promotion
from soldiers who had fought by his
side, became an officer, and was senior
captain of the 57th North Carolina
Regiment.
It was the second of July, 1863, ever
memorable as the second day of
Gettysburg; nature lay in trie calm of
her pending storm, the earth slept un
der her warm sun, the lever hung
motionless, the most powerful array
of the earth held the rock walls which
crested Cemetery Heights.
To take that position was the task
Lee had set for his men: a mile of
open field, then up the hill in the face
of death. At the fatal command ot
'forward, regiments moved acrosss
the plain the 57th Regiment was
there, and far up the steep, farther
than ever before mortal valor had
led the brave and true, Wiley Gray
with sword gleaming over his fair
young head, lead his soldier compan
ions, and as the shadow of night came
on the earih, beyond the rock wall,
he fell. This is what his comrades
said, and this is all. And "Harry
Percy's spurs grew cold." A prince
he was a knightly prince. He lived
with the brave; he died with the brave;
he sleeps with the brave. Where? God
knows.
"Ah! who can catch that wand of magio
power
Or the lost clue regain?
The unfinished window in
Tower,
Unfinished must remain."
AlUdin's
So, at nightfall of that ominous day,
Wiley Gray laid down his life. He
was known no more to mortal eyes,
either in life or death. His dust is
with the dust of those who, in the
brotherhood of battle felt his magnetic
courage, who with him rode, on the
wings of death, the fire lit storms of
war. He should rest with them. But
he lives immortal in the memory of a
grateful country; on the page where
history records virtue and courage;
in the hearts of those who loved him
so.
In her quiet home in the citv of I
Winston, his aged mother lives. I have
the honor and pleasure to know her.
Not long since I called to see her and
looking around I saw in the room a
card framed to contain the picture of
her sons. Seven sons, six of them are
now living, justly distinguished in the
various avocations ot lite. My eyes
fell on this picture frame, faces of men
I knew; but the space for one picture
was unfilled and vacant. I said noth-
ing, I could not speak as I turned to interest to us, for you are an excep
look at her and felt that her thoughts tional body of young men and women.
were on her first born. He lived there
in her heart and I knew that his pic-
ture was there, she had it, in all of his
beautiful splendid youth.
And, he lives in fame. With no
monumental marble nor bronzed shaft
to commemorate his life, only the
principle of his cause. His sublime
death was the principle itself, the em-
bodiment of those virtues highest in
all human kind, and they do not die.
Phey need not call his name, but in
the life to come of all that is good,
and true and brave, his story will be
told. The painter, as with master
hand, he places on the canvass the
hero face, will seek to catch from the
boy in gray valor's high expression;
the poet as with tender strains he
sings of self abnegation and martyr
courage, will in his finest fancy follow
the charge of the gray columns at
Gettysburg; the mighty orator, who
with impassioned and fervid speech,
strives to call his people from degrada-r
tion and dishonor tq .thoughts of home
and country, will catch his inspiration
from the nameless dead who at night
fall lay on the field, beyond the rock
wall, oi Cemetery Heights. And he
lives now with you, who have so well
striven for the laurel of debate. Like
the amaranth flower, ever fadeless,
wear this decoration on your breast
as a call to duty; and know that the
cross of earth's great Legion of Honor
bears the name of Wiley Gray.

What silences we keen vear after vaar
With those who are most near to us and

We live beside eaeh other dav by day.
And speak of myriad things, but seldom
say
The full, sweet word that lies lust in our

Beneath the commonplace or common

Then out of sight and out of reach they

These close familiar friends who loved us
so-
And sitting in theshadows thgy have left,
Alone with loneliness and sore bereit.
We think with vain rceret of some fond
word
That once we might have said and they
had heard.
For weak and poor the
love that we ex
pressed
Now seems beside the vast,
sweet, unex-
pressed:
And slight the deedswe'did
to those un

And small the service 'spent,

And undeserved the praise for word and
deed
That shonld have overflowed the simple
need.
This is the eruel cross of life to be
Full-visioned only when the ministry
Of death has been fulfilled, and in the

Of some dear pretence is but empty space,
What recollected services ean men
Give consolation for the "might have

DAVID, ISRAEL'S KING.
A MAGNIFICENT TYPE OF MANHOOD GRAPHICALLY POR-
TRAYED BY A
President Kilgo's Splendid Address to the Graduates of Trinity Col
lege in the Delivery of His Baccalureate Sermon A flan's Per
sonality the fleas ure of His Prerogatives Poverty a Blessing
Instead of a Bane.
Durham, June 8. The annual com
mencement of Trinity College is on
mis week. 1 he nrst ot the exercises
took place last sight when Dr. John
lC.Kilgo, president of the college, de-
livered his annual baccalaureate ad
dress to the graduating class at Main
Street Methodist church. The church
was packed to its utmost capacity and
large numbers were turned away there
not even being standing room inside.
The doctor used as his subject, "The
Poet King of Israel," from which he
delivered a masterly address, speaking
I as follows:
"To all men come hours that mark
the birth of new obligations and new
plans. The current of history makes a
distinctive change. If not in direc-
tion, it grows deeper and broader. To
you, my young friends, such an hour
has come. It is not the first one and
it will not be the last one. Four
years ago you left your homes for larg-
er tutorage than they could offer you.
You had outgrown the home and the
necessity ot wiaer ranges 01 thought
and responsibility was upon you. This
hour finds you at another distinctive
point in your history. You are of great
We call you college folk, and this
means that you are a peculiar folk,
Very few men ever stand where you
(stand. You are not here by good-luck;
and the roan who calls you lucky fel-
lows is too frivolous to fathom a trage-
dy. Life to him is a comedy. No
man can tell the amount of blood and
sweat that pours into this occasion;
no man discover the original impulse
that put you here; and no raathemat-
ics can sum up the deep anxiety and
parental toil and economy that are
represented in you. The history of
your homes during the past four years
is full of heroism, and what the gam-
bhng joker calls luck, your father and
mother call fidelity and toil. You
are an object lesson to us and teach
us the doctrines of noble parenthood.
I would impress you with more rever
ential regard for the father and mother
who have served you so nobly. A few
years ago a young man stood on the
rostrum of a college chapel and re
ceived a medal for which he had toiled
long and hard. It was presented in
the usual manner; and when the speak
er placed the shining gold with stream
ing ribbon in his hand, he descended
from the rostrum, walked down the
crowded aisle, worked his way into the
midst of the large audience, to the
place where sat a poor woman of plain
dress and worn face, and put the rib
bon around her neck, saying, 'This is
your medal, mother; you won it.' This
is pre-eminently the hour of your
mother's success. I trust you are wil
ling to crown her with its triumphs.
"In this baccalaureate address 1
have decided to talk to you on some
of the points in the character of Israel's
poet-king.
"David had his right to the throne
of Israel by virtue of his imperial na
ture. You recall the incidents of Sam
uel going to the home of Jessie and his
private review oi the sons in search
for a future king of his country. One
by one he reviewed them, beginning
with the tall and imperial Eliab, whose
countenance and stature filled the
prophet's eyes, but he was denied.
Then came Abinadab and Shammah,
and all the others, but none were
kings. There was one more but he
keepeth the sheep.' 'Send and fetch
him,' said Samuel. Soon there stood
before the prophet a ruddy, athletic
youth with the work of the field upon
him, but he was every inch a king.
He had already sung on Judea's hills
songs that betrayed a soul full of regal
power and spirit.
"A man s personality is the measure
of his prerogatives. The world is slow
to learn this and immense damage has
resulted from its stupidity. Essential
worth is always personal and no arti
ficial process cah create it. Yet we
have resorted to all kinds of schemes
to prop up our weakness and common-
ality. The moment a man realizes
personal decrepitude he begins to
practice a fraud. I once knew a man
who dyed his gray beard in order to
hide his age and secure a business sit
uation. But youth did not come back
and his bones did not quit rattling.
The enormous waste of paint and pow
der to bring beauty to the faces of
ugly young women has become too se
rious to be a joke.
"There are two words that have too
many patrons. I hey are 'prestige
and 'pedigree. We get them from
the land of Voltaire and Rosseau.
They denounce all personal worth and
set one to fishing in the past for small
commendations.
"You hear much told about the pres
tige of history, of money, of social af
filiations, and of institutions. With a
certain class it means much, but I warn
you that it is the last hope of a bank
rupt character. No man borrows un
til his own bank account is insufficient
and no man offers prestige 'till per
sonal worth has been exhausted. I
freqently bear much that assumes the
pauperization of our young manhood.
A college declares that it can give you
certain prestige and succeeds in getting
many of the weaker sort. I have had
MASTER HAND.
young men who thought themselves
called to the ministry, to say that they
wished to attend college for awhile
for the prestige it would give them;
that is, they wanted to say that they
had been to college or to call them
selves college-bred.
"Closely akin to this class is the
class of ancestral worshippers. There
is a large difference between a high
esteem for a noble ancestry and a
pompous parade of pedigree. The
first is full of responsibility and creates
great energy, the last is full of conceit
and makes an advertising card of the
dead. That man has greatly degen
erated whose noblest history is in the
grave. I have heard much recently
of so-called patriotic sentimet t. The
most of it has been a low type ot ora
torical raving over our dead. You
will hear much more of it this fall, as
another political campaign is on us.
Your dead heroes will be hauled from
their tombs, and made to do service
in the conflict of demagogues. Young
men, I would not inspire in you a con
tempt for those whose noble deeds
have been wrought into our history,
but I would inspire a love for them
too strong to reduce them to campaign
thunder. No man nor State can meas
ure himself by the past.
"So David stood alone in that hour
of choosing a new king for Israel. Be
hind him was no regal ancestry. All
depended upon what was in him, and
as the old prophet looked upon him
an empire seemed to rise up out of the
shepherd lad. A voice spoke within
Samuel, 'Rise and anoint him.' It
was the intuitive judgment ot God,
operating in conjunction with the in
tuition of the holy prophet. It is
never hard to know a real man, one
of personal power. He seems to move
in a divine atmosphere, and his silence
is full of authority, and every motion
pregnant with power. Such a man
needs no certificates. His personality
is his credentials, and everything makes
way for him. Where was regal power
more potent and glorious than in the
thorn crowned silence of Christ in Pi
late's hall? It was the unfolding of a
personal empire that swept the heavens
and incorporated eternity. He needed
no ancestry; He needed no prestige;
He stood there with no defense; but
rending rock, swaying hills and burst
ing tomb all vowed that He was King
and Lord by virtue of His personality.
"The highest product of education
is the development of personal re
sources. If it cannot accomplish this
then it is an immense fraud. This
makes you the measure of yourself. It
is the foundation stone of your freedom.
Freedom is the noblest expression of
individualism, and it is built and con
served, not in constitutions but in per
sonal force. You have heard much of
constitutional rights. They are too
insignificant to be mentioned, for the
only freedom guaranteed by the con
stitution is a right to make yourself
free. With all your boasting about
being free and equal' America is full
of slavishness. We have a helpless
type of manhood growing up all
around us. The negro is still helpless,
and a country that boasts so many
tramps and office-seekers, need not
boast of any great freedom. If liberty
means rights, then liberty rests upon
personal power, for no man has any
other right than he finds in the range
of his personality. You have no right
to respect, unless you are respectable;
you have no right to honor unless you
are honorable; you have no right to a
living unless you can make it; you
have no right to office unless you are
an official. All depends upon you.
All that David had to do when he
became king was to be himself. You
would say be natural; I would say be
Davidic. As David unfolded his na
ture the empire grew. He opened it
on the poetic side, and all Israel began
to sing; he opened it on the war-like
side, and all his enemies took to flight;
he opened it on the religious side and
a temple was born. Israel was the tra-
vail of his personalty. It was all David
atiu rv ao a guiu.u pvi 11u siu j ivwa la
it had a golden king. Young man,
nothing that you touch win be any
larger than yourself. II there are em
pires in you they will come out; if
there are industries in you they will be
born. There is a hereditary that runs
through everything and answers to the
law of conformity to type.
"David was the son of a poor man.
He knew nothing of the ease and lux
ury of wealth, but battled with all the
problems of life that are incident to
poverty. In this respect the most of
you are like him, for you are what the
world calls poor. You will let me
congratulate you upon your poverty.
It is the source of much assurance
to us.
"The world has somehow come to
regard poverty as a great misfortune
if not a disgrace. He is a poor boy
who works for his living,' or he be
longs to the laboring class,' are phrases
frequently heard and seemingly in
tended for an apology. I have heard
it said 'he is a good boy, but he is
poor.'
"Again there is a class of spurious
charity that is always wanting to do
something for the poor boy. Politic
ans talk much about helping the poor
boy; preachers preach about him,
schools and colleges coddle him. I
have known colleges to boast of how
much they did for the poor boy. Poor
boys have been published to the world,
and paraded before legislatures, church
gatherings, and individuals in the hope
of extorting appropriations and benev
olence to some enterprise.
"I have no such feelings and resent
any such impeachment. I was born a
poor boy and expect to live a poor
man. The hope of the world is in the
poor boy and he needs no coddling at
the hands of any one. He has made
the old world. He has written our
poems, carved our sculpture, construct
ed our cathedrals, thought out our
philosophy, written our literature, de
veloped our science, and constructed
moral and religious syitems. He needs
no help. The sons of the wealthy, who
have been emasculated by the luxuries
of wealth, are our most helpless classes.
They have done nothing for us except
to keep up the frivolous side of life.
"Henry George had much to say
about the rich growing richer and the
poor growing poorer. This is not true.
The poor are growing rich, and the
rich are growing poorer. Most of our
wealthy men were once poor boys.
"No, I have great hopes because of
your poverty. It will energize you and
set you to work, and out ot that will
come a belter empire.
"David's poverty was the school in
which was developed the noblest ele
ments of his character. He wrote some
of his best thought from the hill-sides
on which he shepherded his flock.
"It trained in him an indomitable
spirit. Nothing could overthrow his
purpose. Every obstacle was met with
the patient determination of a hero.
He took hold of questions and situa

many men do not wish to begin at the
bottom to solve problems.
"David was a man with faith in God.
That his mother had much to do with
this cannot be doubted. He never
made any illusion to his father in all
his writings, but twice he speaks of his
mother as 'the hand-maiden of the
Lord.' He paid her this high tribute.
But his faith in God was reinforced
by all his knowledge and experience.
The rocks, the hills, the valleys, the
morning dawn and the evening shades
all unfolded to him a larger vision of
God.
"It was his faith that calmed him
amTdTall the strifes of his history. There
was a centre of power in him that was
never disturbed. The skeptic is a
restless man and cannot be still. I am
rejoiced to know that all of you to
whom I will give diplomas on Wednes
day are men who have avowed your
faith in God. That is the one element
that makes you trustworthy.
"An apostle writing centuries after
David's reign said, He served his gen
eration.' That was a high tribute. To
such a life I would commend you.
You face the twentieth century, and
all its problems. Happy will you be
if it can be said of you, He served
his generation.' "
If it requires an annual outlay of $ 100.00
to insure a family against any serious con
sequences from an attack of bowel com
plaint during the year there are many who
would feel it their .1'ity to pay it; that they
could not afford ! risk their lives, and
those of their fam'' tor such an amount.
Any one can get diis insurance for 25 cents,
that being the priio ot a bottle of Cham
berlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Rem
edy. In almost every neighborhood some
one has died from an attack of bowel com
plaint before medicine could be procured
or a pliysicirn summoned. One or two
doses of this remedy will cure any ordinary
case. It never fails. Can you afford to
take the rhk for so small an amount? For

ABOUT PAYING DEBTS.
A STRONG SERMON ON DEBT PAYING
RELIGION.
What is Needed is not Lone Faced
Piety but an Honest Obligation Dis
charging Christianity Shouting
Alone is not Sufficient for God or
flan.
riiev. D.
II. Tuttle in North Carolina
Christian Advocate. j
"Owe no man
13:8.
anything," Uomans :
, Just at this time our country needs ;
a religion that will make a man pay :
his debts. Shouting don't settle old j
notes and accounts with God nor man
cash up. We want to pounce right :
on a fellow and put him out of the j
church if he goes to a ball or a theatre
or gets on a drunk, but never say a ;
word to the pious scamp who never '
pays his debts. Preachers and people ;
who do not pay their debts are doing ;
the church more harm than dancers :
and drunkards there are more of i
them in the church. Reader, am I i
getting close to you? Then lay down
the paper and go and pay up and you
can read on with ease. And don't
you stop paying because the "statute
of limitations" excuses the open ac
count you made for your bread and
meat God's law knows no Mich
statute. You pay it in cash or God
will make you pay it in fire and brim
stone. God knows no such excuse
from paying as "homestead exemp
tion." You raise that excuse to keep
from paying your debts and you can
stop singing "When I can read my
title clear to mansions in the skies"
you've got none up there. You may
say I drould pay if I could. How hard
have you tried? If dying at this mo
ment could you say, I've done all in
my power? Have you tried to save a
ittle each week or month for your
debts? Are you spending no money
for things to eat and wear that you
could do without? How much do you
spend per year for cigars and tobacco?
Make the calculation. Put that amount
to your debts. Do you eat dainties
and luxuries? Plainer diet would likely
keep you from making doctor's bills
that you never pay, and leave you
money to bring up back accounts. Do
you strut about with an umbrella over
your head while your creditor walks in
the broiling sun? Don't you cut shines
on hired turnouts (maybe they are not
paid for) when you might walk and
use the money to make your creditors
smile? A plainer suit of clothes would
be more becoming to you until you pay
for those worn out last season. When
expenses not necessary for the feeding
and clothing of the body are cut off
and applied to the payments of debts,
then you grow in favor with God, and
not until then does God excuse vou.
Repentance on this point must be
of that Godly sort that needeth not to
be repented of. Reader, were you
sorry that you had not paid your debts
when you made a profession of relig
ion? If you were not that is just why
you have not got a debt-paying relig
ion. True repentance has a backward
as well as a forward effect on the life
of the believer. He will as far as pos
sible, make good his past wrongs.
Many new converts sing, "Jesus paid
it all, all to him I owe." No such
thing. Jesus did not pay it all; neither I
do you owe all to him. If the week
before you were converted you owed j
your neighbor ten dollars and was able ,
to pay it, you owe that neighbor ten ;
dollars yet. Jesus did not pay that ,
for you. If you don't pay that debt it
will meet you at judgment as sure as I
you are a sinner, it is mean in you ;
to expect jesus to pay ueuts lor you
that you can pay yourself. If you have
a Christian heart in you, think how
much Jesus paid for you that you never
could have met at God's bar of inflex- (
ible justice. Some people think that
the cleansing stream of Jesus' blood
washed Sinai away and deluged the j
i t
law no sucn ining. jesus came not to
destroy, but to fulfill, and give grace
that we through him might fulfill.
At the close of a great revival a few
years ago a numuer oi young men
came to me to know if they ought to
go and pay bills that they had made
at barrooms for whisky, etc. I told
them to "owe no man anything," "let
not your good be evil spoken of"
givethe devil his dues. All of those
young men save one or two went and
paid, up those bad debts and have
made no more. I hose who could not
see that it was their duty
to piy up
those debts have returned to their old
w
paths and their second state is worse!
than the first. !
Then let the whole Church pray for j
a revival of debt-paying religion, in
every revival let prayer be made that
the new converts may have grace to
pay up "old debts" and not contract
new ones without a good probability
of paying them. Let the ministry en
force this duty both publicly and pri
vately (with discretion) and great good
can be accomplished. If preachers
will look after this .i-atter of debt pay
ing among their congregation their
own debts might be more promptly
paid chickens come home to roost.
Both preachers and people need to be
more careful, prayerful and payfu!
along this line. The greatest necessity
of the present time is confidence among
toe people. Iet the church command
and demand her membership to live
up to their promises and Contracts,
and soon the fnancial darkuess will
give way to a brighter morn ot pros
perity in alT business circles. Keep
the Amen corners and front seats clear
of members who can nd won't pay
their debts, and the word preacl ed
1 will reach sinners.

Being Sick
is largely a matter of
choice. Sickness can usually lie cured
In cases of dyspepsia, heartburn and
sour stomach always take "Ripans
Tabules." This good remedy is com
pounded largely of Rhubarb and Soda.
The one acts gently on the bowels; the
other sweetens the stomach. "Ri
pans Tabules" are sold by me for 50c.
a box.
Being Well
is impossible if the drugs
you buy are not reliable and pure.
Besides coming here for Ripans Tab
ules," you should come also when the
doctor writes a prescription for you.
The doctor's advice and my pur.
drugs are pretty sure to make sick
people well.
