Only aee.regretable feature of
the whole occasion might be
mentioned, and that was that on

ing some of the old veterans

rush on the tables before the
meats were distribstsdv and the

and though there wee a thousand
pounds of meat left over, soma
people got impatient waiting
and went away without getting
anything to eat. This was to be
regretted, bnt is one of the mis-
takes that often occur in trying
to handle ao large g.orowd as

On the second day the at-
tractions at the ground were
continued. Band music was
furnlslgdby the Mentor band
and voon* music by a looal
aggregation of singers, and by
the old veterans, many of them
singing like boys and girls, not-
withstanding the fact that they
seldom sing any more.
At eleven o’clock Commander
Dean introduced Hon. Eugene
Black a son of the Confederacy
who formally Introduced Con-
gressman R. L. Henry of Waco
as the chief speaker of the day.
Mr. Henry spoke for more than
an hour, and was given a close
hearing. He entirelv out out
politics and spoke in favor, and
in eulogistic terms of the doc
trines, traditions, and history of
the south and her brave sons and
fair daughters. Mr. Henry's
speech was well received, and if
there was a single criticism,
this writer failed to hear it.
After dinner Judge Levy of
Texarkana spoke, and he too
delivered a fine address which
was well received. After
Judge Levy spoke the crowd
began leaving the grounds, but
it was near sundown before all
got away from beautiful U. C. V.
Thus came and thus went
another reunion of the old settlers
and old Confederate Veterans
who have made Texas what she
is a great and glorious state,
one of which to be a citiien is
the proud boast of her native and
adopted sons and daughters.^

From girl hood Mrs. Smith lived
a noble Christian life and agnos-
ticism and unbelief fled from her
as an evil spirit from the pres
ence of the Holy Spirit.
It was the pleasure of the
writer to have known Mrs.
Smith, we may say, during the
crowning years of her life and
never have we met or been priv-
ileged to know a more noble
Christian character. Her smile
was like a ripple of light from
heaven and spoke peace and
comfort to our very souls.
