Extract from the Lenoir Topic.
tSaturday's weather was Confederate
Providence smilad upou the veter
ans, the weather was propitious, the
sun shone and tha day was as lovely
as a day in Spring.
What prophet could have foretold

The great mass of cloudn that had
brooded o'er the whole country for
weeks, drooping and drizzling and
breaking up all the fairs, was broken
ut) itself and a rift made in it fr the
sun to shine for one day only, and
that day for the Contederate veterans,
and after that the rain began again.
Bright and early Saturday morn
ing crowds of citizens of the county
began pouring into Lenoir, and every
king aud evervoody was j a 11 oi nie
ai d bii.stlsuir. Veterans, bronzed and
zzkd. one-leggtd men, one trms 1
men, citizens, men, women und child
ren moved about and jostled together
in their holiday clothea find all were
I' ay and upon pleasure bent. Wagons
acd teams of all sorts were fcatterej
about and greet hampers of provisions
hidden away in them foretold the
coming conflict of the dinner hour.
Inrly in the morning the Stars ahd
tr-tripes were rlung to the breeze irom
tli'3 masthead of the signal t'ole and
wftved bravely over the turons be
neath. On entering the town at 10
o'clock one had an inspiring scer.e to
greet his gaze. The streets were black
with people ana that mysterious hum
and buzz of a great multitude, its
breath of life, reaching his ear?, had
h-3 effect upon hitu that presence in a
crowd always docs upon individuals, j

"o'y doing nothing. 'Vanees et

and across the streets, urging on their
fiery, foaming steeds as if life and

hese horsemen numbered about
twsnty and were relatives of the vet
erans, who were too young to.be in:
the war, organized under tie com
mend of Captain T. M. Vance to act
is a guard of honor to the veterans
and, riding iu front of the column, to
clear the way for it. They formed on
Spring street and awaited orders to
march. This body of men was organ
ized by Chief Marshal IIarjer for the
purpose of clearing the way for the
progress of the column and to facili
tate its movements by keeping order.
lhe committee of arrangements and
the Chief Marshal met at headquar
ters in the i loneer Library and at half
past ten o'clock orders were given to
the companies to form upon the pub
lie square. Ihis was done while the
Conover brass band played Dixie and
other inspiring music.
v hen it wa3 time for the column
to take up the line of march, the
mounted escort war marched around
by College Avenue to pass in review
before the veterans drawn up in line.
As they rode up, holding their pranc
ing steeds to the ground, the martial
blast of the trumpets made them
square themselves proudly back in
their seats and theyr felt as if they
could ride right up to the cannon s
mouth and extract the ball. By the
time they had ridden the gauntlet of
those old vets all the starch was gone,
their horses had quit prancing and
they rode as limp as it they were go
iug to mill. The veterans called them
"Buttermilk Hangers," guj'ed them
and chaffed them all over with good
natured rslliery. It was all in good
humor, for the veterans began to feel
good and to remember h.w they used
to bedevil the cavalry in the same
way during the war. And all the
time they were proud of the boys be
cause they laughed at the old soldiers'
jokes and they appreciated the motive
these young fellows had in doing honor
to the grand old soldiers who had
smelled pjwder, by acting as a guard
of honor and as an escort to them.
From the corner of West Boundary
and West Main streets to the corner
of Spring and Church Streets the vet
erans, wooden legged and all, marched
and kept splendid step to the beating
of the bas3 drum by Air. G. W. Hoi
loway, who was an old war drummer.
On Spring Street, Mr. P. L. Baker,
son oi the old war nfer, William Ba
ker, now gone to his rest, started in
and accompanied the drum with such
stirring aira on the fife as "Polly put
the kettle on" and the like. At the
cound of this familiar music, under
which they all enlisted", the veterans
gave the veil that we nave been want
ing to hear. It was the . genuine old
Confederate yell. We had nothing to
do with it but when they yelled we
listened and yelled too.
The streets on the whole line of
march were crowded with spectators
and the column en all sides and be
hind was accompanied by a solid and
compact mass ol moving humanity.

Ladus, C:i:ti''tde, Fdfcw- Country
hi. This is a great iav and Iain
glad to be here to take part wilh you
' i the grand purpose of 1 his trreat dav.
! I Lave seen greater conoourses of ;..o-
. ) I have beheld hundreds of thou
sands oi my fellow citizens massed to
i y. l:er 'upon some great occasion in
Washington ; I have seen great armies
; i:.rsha!ied ujion the plains of battle ;
I Lave seen a million of people g:.th
erod together in the great metropolis
i i'liie country. But, my countrymen,
as i stand here, a North Carolinian,
hi 1 look into the faces of you, my
fellow-citizens, and p-iaze upon the
jve'y North Carolina landscape
arouna us, v.itn the blessed b;ue
mountains in the distance, as I vie.v
the lovely tints of the autumn foliage,
aud as I contemplate the noble ca :so,
thrt calls us together reflecting upon
those things, I can only say that no
occasion can be more interesting to
mc. than the present. I. listened with
great interest to the wise, well Maed
and eloquent words of the gallant gen
tlemen who preceded me. A glorious
thing it is, indeed, that ia our times it
has come to pa3 that Judge Cilley, a
soldier who fought on the Federal
side in the late war can say such
things as these here in a Southern
town and that his words should meet
with universal approbation.
Here followed a tribute to confeder
ate soldiers and "the women, G d
b'ess em as Gen. Mad. Leach loves
to put it. Gen. Ransom always talks
aoout the women and Iiie Sentinel
has a vague suspicion that therein lies
one secret of his success.
I agree with Judge Cilley in his
remarks about the origin of the war.
It is preposterous to say that North
ern men would have fought just to
free the slaves or tnat the .Southern
men would have fought jus j to keep
the negroes in slavery. The majority
of the Southern soldiers owned no
slaves. The property in slaves would
i a ve been safe under Lincoln. The
caus3 of the war hinged imon a sec
tional difference between the North
and South about the functions of gov
ernment oi:0 taking stronger views
than the other ou the subject of States'
Rights. Each thought itscif right. "
After the playing of Dixie by the
band, Col. W. H. II. Cov.des arose
and addressed the veterans for a few
dilutes ia his usual felicitous style.
Gen. Ransom held a levels and
handshaking ou the platform after
the speaking and most of the old sol
diers came up and grasped him, the
old commander of many of them,
warmly by the hand.
Right here The Sentinel wants
to tell an incident about that HAND
of Senator Ransom's. It is related
that the HAND once met a man
whom it didn't know, but the HAND
wssn't to be oufdone, so it inquired
the person's name and with a hearty
'How are you, Mr. Jones," it gripped
upon that person and siuce then the
person has never failed to use its in
fluence for the HAND. They do say
that whenever a man shakes it he is
made a life-long friend of its owner.
Senator Zeb. Vance was invited but
he is trying to complete his residence
near Black Mountain before Congress
meets and couldn't come.
Over 3,000 people were at the re
union and it was a big day for Lenoir.
Already the talk is to have an even
more successful re-union next year
than this, if that is possible. It will
probably be earlier in the season. A
permanent organization and free din
ner to all the veterans will be certain
. features of next year's re-union.

The story of the pipes is only one of
a thousand. No man who lives iu
Eastern North Caroltna knows how
an apple grown in Western North
Carolina tastes, unless after climbing
the mountains he has climbed the
tree and plucked the, to us, forbidden
fruit. This too, from the simple fact
that a barrel of apples could be ship

much les3 than it could be shipped
fro 11 Western North Carolina.

the Governor of North Carolina, in
the good old days when prohibition
was not dreamed of, journeyed on
horseback, of course to make a format
call on the Governor of South Caro
lina. The latter had a jug-full of li
quor iu the house ;;t the time, and for
some inexplicable reason cou'd get no
more. When his distinguished guest
arriven lie set the jug out on the table
and invited the: Governor of North
Carolina to make himself at home.
The guest drank copiously, the host
moderately, to preserve at once his
soberness and his liquor. At last he
saw with dismay that his guest had
drunk the last drop of the precious
i.'opjor. The guest was too drunk to
know it, but he missed the fami
liar invitation of the host to take
another drink. So, leaning on his
elbows, he looked across the table re
proachfully, with the mclaucholy re
mark : "Governor, it's a long time
between drinks."
