They are passing into the shadow. with their croeaee on the breast, Tha Knightsof Southern Chivalry, the men who wore the gray; They are passing into history, with faees toward the West, Where dies the ruddy afterglow that crowns the warrior's day. The serried lines are thinner, growlng thinner, year by year? Thehigh, proudhandsthatstormedthe guns, are white instead of brown. Upon the cheeks unblanched by war, there falla the furtive tear, And tha ranka are eloaed in silence aa time mows a eomrade down. Soon the bugle calls resounding, shall awake the days that pass, Soon the roll will re-eeho in the haunts that once they knew; But the clarion shall die aobbing low, amongst tbe billowed grasa, And the roll call find its answer, hid beneath the violet's blue. Yet the deeds they wruught in valor shall rise upward 1'rom the sod; Their proweas, born of n*hu of men, give birth to glorious song, Like incense from Valhalla shall their faith float up to God. And aacrifice blot out the night of eal umny and wrong! They art passing into shadow, with their croaaea on the breast? The fiower of Southern Chivalry, the men we love to greet; But they bear within their hearta of gold all we have loved the best, Our sorrow's crowd of sorrow, and the arictory of defeat. -Virginia Frazier Boyle, In Memphis Commercial-Appeal. THE LEE GENEALOGY. [From the Richmond Times-Dispatrh Genealogical column of August 4, 1907. From records compiled by Gen. Stephen D. Lee just before his death, and Maj. Alex. Y. Lee.] We have already given the pedigree of the Lees, of Virginia, as descended from the Lees of Cotton and Langley, in the county of Shropshire, England. There waa, however, a younger branch of tha Engliah Lees, which seems to have been an offahoot from the original parent stock, which bore dif7erent arms and migrated flrst to the Barbados, auad thence to South Carolina, settling at Oaarleston early during the eigh teetatsi century. Going back to about the taaae of Henry VII, we find that there waa a Robertus-de-Lee, born at Bridgworth, a town near Cotton, Shrop? shire, the seat of the Lees. This Robert waa granted the arms as given above, December 20. 1593. He became Lord Mayor of London. 1602. and in 1606 he died. Harry Lee, oae of his sons, was eaptain of a compaay in the city of London, who bore the aame arms as Sir Robert, his father. This Henry Lee had a aon, Francia Lee, wbo moved to tha Island of Barbados with Mary, his wife, taking with biua the aame famQy coat of arms.

It would be impossible within the limits of our columna to give all tbe rarious branches of this immense fam ily tree, bearing as it does the deacen iants of many generations, among avhom were some of the most brilliant itatesmen, soldiers and cultured men and women that the South has produced. tfone can fail to admire the life of Col. William Lee, or that of his illustrious aon. Judge Thomas Lee, who roae from slerk of the South Carolina Legisiat ure, 1798-1804, then eomptroller-general of the State, and was appointed by Presi ient Monroe the, United States djstrict judge. He started the temperance re form in the South, which still goes on. It was bis niece, Mary Elizabeth Lee, who was the talented author and poet ?es of the South, whose remarkabla tai snt for languagee and brilliant writinga attracted the attention of all aectiona jf the country, many of her works be ing used in the Massachusetts publie achool libraries. The South Carolina Lees intermar? ried with many of its most prominent families; tbe Alisons, Drapers, Jenkins, L'hisholms, Shoroden, Howards, Miles, Dickson and many others; their de acendents still adorning the South. The arms given are thus daaaribed: "Argent, a fesse sable; in chief two pellets, in base a martlet of the second. Crest?A hound's heaJ erased. No motto. LETTER FROM CnARlOTTESVILLE. Perhaps a letter from this part of the :ountry would interest some of your readera. The State Sunday School Convention tias just closed its three days' aession and was greatly enjoyed by all who at tended. There were not as many dele rates as were expected and thoae who railed to come misaed a rare treat. Abla ipeakers discussed subjects of impor tance with sound aenae that made foa think "those men know what they are talking about." They taught the new method of organizing and con lucting a Sunday school, also the train ng ofvteachers for achool and mission work. You ought to have been there, ?ut not seeing any deiegate from Lan ;aater, the idea occurred to us, "how lice it would be to repreaent you." rVben application was made for a badge, >ne waa quickly produced, also a blank :ard to lill out. Not caring to misrepre lent you, we owned up that we were >nly visitora and could not conacienti >usly sign the pledge, aa it might not >e honest to "play" deiegate; but the cind dispenser of the badges insisted on )ur wearing one and repreaenting you ' ind better still "get your dinner"?so lelegate or no deiegate we wore the badge, ate, and drank lemonade, to the rlory of old Lancaster. The lunch was furnished by the churches of Charlottes rille and served on a long table under the lovely shade trees on east lawn of the University grounds. There waa not a plate, knife, fork, glass or apoon to been seen?we just ate tlie aandwichea, pie, cake and pickle out of our hands tnd drank the lemonade 1'rom tin cups. Some of you ladies who toil over so SjSjSJaa useleastable wure and unneceasary cooking during protracted meetings would do well to follow this plan in preparingyour dinners. The next Convention will be held in Norfolk. The "Richmond man" pleaded strongly for it, but when the votes were counted Norfolk was far ahead. SUBSCKIBER. HOWNATUREDECEIVESUS. Our aenses deceive us curiously at timea. A flaah of lightnim* lighta up the ground for one-million?h of a sec? ond, yet it seems to last ever so much longer. What happens ia that the impreaaion remains in the eye or the retina for about one-eighth of a second. or 124,000 times as long as the flaah lasta. If on a dark night a train apeeding along at lixty miles an hour is lit up by a light ning flash, it appeara stationary, yet in the eighth of a second during which we seem to see it the train travels elev?.-n feet. But we really only see it during one millionth of a second, and in that time it travels only one-hundredth of un inch. When a man's leg is cut off, if the stump be irritated, he feels the pain in his toes. This curious deception is the aame as any one can practice on him? self by striking hia elbowa on the table, when he feels the pain in hia fingera. Of courae. in both caaes, the pain is felt in the brain. We do not actually perceive different distances with the eye, but judge them from various indications. When our judgment is at fault we are deceiv ed. lf you see a peraon in a fog, for instance, he seems to be much bigger than usual. The same thing happena when you see men or cattle on the top of a hill against the horizon in the twi light. In both caaes you judge them to be furtber away than they really are, and conaequently they appear uncom monly large. -Tit-Bita. TRY SNIUNG. When the westher auita you not, Try amiling. When your coffee isn't hot, Try amiling. When your neighbors don't do right, Or your relativea all ftght, Sure; it'a hard, but you might Try amiling. Doean't change the thinga, of courae. Just smiling, But it cannot make them worae Juat smiling. And it eeeeaa to help your caae, Bright ens up a gioomy place, Then, lt sort u' resta your face, Juat smiling. -CARROU. County, in Baltimore Sun. SOUTHtRM liMMIGRATION - DAMAGINGOFFICIALREPORT. The Waahington Herald ia authority for the statement that the Britiah Con sular service divertaEnglish immigranta from some part of the South by the ?tatement that the clirnateis unsuitabie for white labor, aave perhaps the westero btli of the Csrolinas and Georgia, and that attent,or> of comera is ealled to the competition of negroes in lsboring*districts. The report statea, however, thst the whole question of Southern imrnigration ia as yet in the experi mental atage. Tbia aeema to be a diacouraging aa pect of the matter, and deterrent to the man of the other aide who may Wish to come to Americs. Worae still, the reports *re stated to convey the impreaaion that the South wanta white men not ao much as lsborers as voters. Fbia advios, if the report be true, is ahameful. Aa the Herald asys; Sueh an offtcial report may make it adviaabje for Southern imrnigration bureaua to in creaae their activitiea, eapecially in the circulation beyond aea of ijtereture that may tend tocounteract the diacouraging influence of a document having the weight of governmental inprint. While the aentiment of the Georgia railroad men in practically ahutting out negro.nrernen from positiona on their anginea ia not indoraed, as aeemingly a atep toward ahutting out the negro from honeat labor, there ia st least another aide to it. While the negro may make an excejient firemen, he ia debarred, ?e are of opinion. by the rules of the brotherhood of locomotive enginere from taking a place as engi neer. The reaylt ia that while he lsarna to be a fireman all right he haa no op portunity to riae higher. So, when an angineer ia diasbled or aick, the negro fireman cannot take hia place aa aubati tute, but a white engineer must be hunted up, and not infrequently ecci denta are caused by the ignorance of the white aubatitute; whereaa white liremen are in an apprentice atage towarda an engineer'a place, and in :>a*e of disability can at once aerve aa ? aubatitute, and, having been in thia school may be ready for promotion, which the negro cannot be. FEAR AND ANGER. L.i*h Mitch.ll Hodaaa. in th? Nortb Amtric.n.l On two mentalconditions represented t>y two very amsll words reata the huge itructure of human unhappineaa. Theae words are "fear" and "anger." The deadliest audswiftest poiaon that :an be given them is "reason." Select the bi^geut fear you have. Study ita habits Analyze ita life by linding out the sort of food it prefera. Some fears iVe.j on money, some on jealousy, some on hate, some on pride, lf you cut on* the food supply of s fear, you deal it a death blow. And there ia no sueh a thing aa real happi neaa until all fears have been given first-clas* funerala. Try teating out a fat. healthy fear. Feed it up for a few days. Shiver every time it frowns at you, aud get pale and cold when it promenades through your cerebellum. Dwell in the dread of direful days to come on account of thia fear. Then note with care and truth the duys that do come, and see whether or not your care of and iwspect for that fear were justined. Ninety-nine times out of each hundred you will be forced to ucknowledge that they were not jastitied. The hundredth time?when the evil prophecy is fulfilled ? you will have to confeas that if you had not let the fear fat ten at the ex penaeof your mental and physical larder, you would be better able to meet the aituation and deal with it. Anger is even less reasonable than fear, for fear is of ien fathered by ignor? ance, and ignorance ia aometimee ex cusable. ^ Anger, however, is just the pampered chtld of passion. it never won a sinvfle thing for any one, and it never wtl>. It ia not only loss of temper, but loss of anythin^ it attends. It burns up your physieal and mental pow jrs with? out bringiu/ you iu a penny of insurance. Tbe chilJroii of anger and fear are BSja and failure. The children of self-control and fear lessness are sui'cess and happinesa. Which pair do you wiah to father? FLOU.aWERI.MG IN DEEP WATER. Mr. Tucker says he ia back in the house of his fathers We are glad to hear il! His aberration of aight yeara was marked by some very un usual aud intercating excuraiona for a s'.atesman of l).*in MVataB proclivities and training. The return trip was s long and tryitivr e*le, and nodoubt he ia foot aore and weary. Don't let's kill the falted calf until Mr. Tucker haa had time to recu|?erate and explain. Per? haps he would like to tell ua the de t&ils of that little atory about hia filing an application to l'rcsident Roosevelt for appointment as Judge of the United States Court for the Western District of Virginia to aucceed Judge John Paul, who died in 19J1, during the evcntful period of Mr. Tucker s absence from the houee of his fathera. Perbaps the Rich? mond Evening Journal will be generous enough to spare him the space in which to tell the story. But if the Journal will not, tbe Index-Appeal will. It will also give him a front page poaition, with a double-column leaded display. In floundering around on the book question. the Hon. Harry St George Tucker got into deep water the other day in Fredericksburg. when he said "Judge Mann had voted for the mul tiple list, which would compel the peo? ple to pay an enormous sum for the change of school books each year." Jt is plain that Mr. Tucker does not know "where he is at" oq the book question. Such a blunder was particujarly inex cuaable, since it was made right under the shadow of a Summer Norraal, where a moment's coaching by one of the professora would have spared Mr. Tucker the mortification of such a stupendous error. Mr. Tucker is a lawyer, and was for some years a teacher of law in promi nent institutions of learning. Iftoany one of his law claaaes he had submitted the law and the facts bearing upon Judge Msnn's vote on that remarkable resolution, and had interpreted that VOte as conclqaive evidenpe of opposi. tion to the single list, the class would have been unable to control their risibles. We venture to sqggeat that Mr. Tucker inform himself on the book question, or elas *?go 'way back and ait down" until he ahsll find out "where he ia at."-Index Appeal, RECIPES FOR BLACKBERRY TIME, BAKED BLACKBERRY PUDDINQ.

Much interest centered in the address :?f Judge W. H. Mann. who was prea ent early, having come from the home of Major J. N. Stubbs, mingling with the aovereigns. Owing to the fact that the Judge had to leave early in order to meet another engagement he coramenced to speak about 12 o'clock, after s stirring intro duction by Major Stubbs, and did not speak more than an hour and a quar ter. The court room waa well filled and contained many warm Mann men, though the entire audience was atten tive and well pleased with the speech. Only once during the course of his re marks did Judge Mann use the name of his opponent and that waa in telling a joke to demonatrate the influence of woman. He based his claims purely upon hia own merits and fitness. ex plained some of the charges that have been made against him, and refrained carefully from any criticism of Mr. Tucker. Everybody agreed that the Judge's speech waa in excellent tone and spirit and made him friends, though senti ment is by no means agreed that he will carry the county. WANT TO MARRY THEIR SUPERIORS When ? man marries, in order to marry hia equal he muat marry a wo? man with a vote. The argument is that when a man marries, in order to marry his auperior he must marry a woman without a vote. And the argu? ment is a strong one. lt is just be? eause men do not want to marry their equals that they are ready to listen to the voice of the great majority of wo? men and not inflict the ballot upon them. No aensible, ordinary, every day man wants to marry his equal. He wants to marry his superior in all the fruits of the spirit, which are love, joy, peace, long-suftering. gentleness. goodneas, faith and temperance. None of these things would be promoted by giving women a vote.?Baltimore Sun. NOTOBIttlNAL WITH LINCOLN.

J.," of Fork Union. whose communication appeared thia morning in the Timea-Dispatch, going ? little too far and becoming rather too rough when he apeaka of what he calla the Virginia political machine aa "agang of political trickatera" with headquarters in Washington? "Gang"' and "trickatera" are pretty hard words and have significance diatinctly criminal and offenaive. Certainly the great majority of the men prominently identified with what is called the ma? chine appear to us to be very respec table citizena. We cannot recall tfiat any of them have tricked anybody or atolen any thing. Thoae of them who are in otfice went before the people in primary election, aubmitted theirclaims and their record and were chosen by the free and direct vote of the people. If they hang together and help each other and play into each other'a handa. it is no more than their opponente do and ia legitimate political policy. It ia not right, in any condition, to speak of a number of decent Virginia oitizena as political trickatera, eapecially in view of the fact that the power they hold is direct from the majority of the white votera of the State. The ma? chine man who blindly and widely aticks to his crowd or hia leader aimply be ajajaa he feels that he belonga where he is, may be, perhapa, a proper object of amusement and may fall far short of the higheat ideals and purposea of citizenahip. But for all that, he may be a very honest and well-meaning man and there is no senae, that we can see, in trying to present him before the public aa a criminal or an outcast. The lesa of that kind of talk we havo the b.'tter it will be for ua. Thia primary election will be over presently and we may have a tolerably tough job electing ita nominee. may need every democratic vote and the cloae co-operation of both the vague factiona of the democratic party to pull through. And after the general election most of ua must live and do buaineaa here in Virginia and through four year? we ought to pull together for the upbjild. ing, enrichment and development oi the Commonwealth in which all of ua are ao aincerely interested. It ia better to avoid hard words and hard feelings so far aa we can and to remember the fulure. If the machine men prove to be tricka? tera or incompetents or crooks the peo? ple can be truated to turn them out -S" power. Until that time let ua make our fight aoberly, decently and with broad comprehension oftthe fact that the man on the other side may be a4 honest and patriotic aa any of ua. aiOO Reward $100.

It would seem that many of our common weeds have uses and command pricea did we only know it. The price paid by big jobbing drug houses for leaves, fiowera or roots of the common er weeds which afflict the farmer with their preaence when he leta them get out of place are aa followa: Dandelion roota, dried, jimpaon weed, leaves and aeeda, poison hemlock, freahly plucked and dried flowers and leaves and dried and cleaned aeed of black and white mustard, five cents a pound; burdock root. aliced and dried, seven cents a pound; dried leaves and blossoms of horehound and wild foxglove, aix to seven centa a pound; dried blossoms of the tall paature mullein, 60 cents a pound, if sealed in tight jars. ln addi tion to the above atandard druga, the dried l?ave8 of pokeweed and trillium, goldthread and jack-in-the-pulpit are marketed, aa well aa the leaves and flowers of tansy, lobelia, boneaet, cat nip and a dozen other very common planta, all of which are in demand at the market pricea.
