With a most beautiful and Impres
sive service Franklin County Memor
ial AsuoataUou pQSBlbly conducted its
last rites at the IntermenT oT one of
Franklin's World War heroes who
paid the supreme sacrifice on the bat
tlefields of France, when all that re
mained of Piltala Nm man B. Wilder
was laid to rest in the beautiful little
family cemetery at his home in Cedar
The remalnB arrived at Louisburg on
Saturday morning at 11 o'clock and
were met at the depot by a large num
ber of citizens, -school children, mem
bers of the Memorial Association, fam
ily and friends, and were escorted
through lowu, while the bell in the
tower of the Courthouse from which
he left, tolled and the flag swung at
half mast. The remains were taken
to his home at the request of the par
ents to await the usual, services to be
held on Sunday afternoon, beginning
at 2.30 o'clock.
The services were begtin with an
impressive retiglouB service conduct
?!' by Rev. Oscar Creech, of Nash
\i!ie, and was interspersed with sev
tiui musical selections, songs among
tbo Tavorltes of the deceased. After
the sc:ipture reading Rev. Mr. Creech
paid a most fitting tribute to the de
ceased, reciting many sceneB and ex
pressions in his acquaintance with
Norman showing the manly bearing
and strong character of one who later
became one of Franklin's brave heroes.
A prayer was offered by Rev. Creech,
and after a song the services wtere
turned over to the Franklin Memorial
Mr. W. H. Ruff in, Chairman of the
Committee on Arrangements, took
charge of the sevices for the Associa
tion and after telling his hearers of
the purpose and objects causing the
formation of the Association proceed
ed with the program, the first number'
being the singing of America.
Mr. Ttuffin then read the following
data incident to the death of Norman
together with letters and a clipping
beautifully written from the Spring
Private Norman B. Wilder, left
Loulsburg in command of a squad of
men and in time was sent over. He
served gallantly in the 321st Regiment
and died in battle in the Meuse-Ar
gonne drive of the 8th to 11th of No*
vember, 1918. He was killed by shrap
nel on the 9th, on the field facing the
enemy. HiB remains were recognized
by a comrade; Peyton Brown, of Louis
burg, who saw in the pocket of one
gallant soldier letters postmarked
Castalia, N. C. This first attracted his
attention to him among the many
killed in that day's action as they lay
awaiting burial. Norman Wilder was
burled In a French Cemetery near the
scene of the battles and Peyton Brown
erected the markers over his first
grave . J*
Among the letters read was the fol
lowing tribute by the Chaplain of his
Dear Mr. Wilder:
You have of course been notified of
the death at , your son, John N. (1.
894,939) who was killed near Verdun
on Nov. -10th.
My heart goeB out In sympathy for
yon In your sorrow . Am sure you
have looked "for his home coming with
Anticipation, of Joy. But he was of
that number who gave their life for
John was a fine boy, courageous and
brave. All the men loved him. We
burled him In the cemetery near the
village of MoulqlnvUle. There he
rests with two score of his comrades
having a cross for head board with
American colors and the motto, Rest
In peace *nd He died for prance. He
gave his Hfe for a noble cause.
May the Ood of all Qrace comfort
Blountlng S. Vaughan,
Chaplain 321 lnftry., A. K. F.
In his closing remarks Mr. Ruffln
read the following as his tribute to
The Supreme Sacrifice
Through dust of conflict and through
O valiant hearts, who to your glory
came ; ?
Tranquil you lie, your knightly virtue
Your memory hallowed In the land
Proudly you gathered, rank on rank to
As who had heard God's message from
All you Jiad hoped for, all you had, you
To save mankind ? yourselves you
scorned to save.
Splendid you passed, the great surren
Into the Vght that nevermore shall
fade; ?. ?
Deep your contentmont In that blMt
Who wait the last clear trumpet-call
Long years ago, ?e earth lay dark and
Hoae a load cry upon a lonely hill,

Christ, our Redeemer, passed the sell
_ same way.
Still stands H#s cross from that dread
hour to this
Like some bright star abore the dark
Still, through the Tail, the Victor's
I.ook down to bless our lesser Calra*
There were His servants, in His steps
Following through death The martyred
Son of God:
"Victor He roe?; ? victorious too shall
They who have drunk His cup of sac
C risen Lord, O Shepherd of oar dead.
Whose Cross has bought ^.hem and
whose staff has led
In glorious hope their proud and sor
Commits her children to Thy gracious
At this point Mr. Ruffin Introduced
Mr. E. H". Malone as the one selected
to deliver the address for this occas
ion and Mr. Mal<ine came forward and
made very pretty tribute to the noble
and glorious sacrifices made by the
boys In Prance and more particularly
the deceased. He toi/k iasue with
Col. Qeorge Harvey, Ambassador to
Great Britlan, who said that the Amer
icans fought to save their skin, by say
ing that there were various motives,
the strongest of which was possibly
the call from the women and children
ol Europe. "Patriotism is not meas
ured By knowledge" declared the
speaker. It is that love for country
that prompts one to say "My Country
first, right or wrong." The speaker
stated that Norman had wnttten the
name of Wilder high on the roll of
honor in his" blood that would came it
to stand out for Justice and right
through all the ages to come. In con
clusion he read the following from
Paul Lawrence Dunbar, illustrating
the sweetness of being put at rest
amid the Bcenes of childhood:

This completing the services at the
home a Corps of ex-service men, mem
bers of the Norman Wilder Post, nam
ed for the deceased, of Nashville, un
der command of tho Post Commander,
Lieut. Archie B: Odom moved forward
and passed Into the house to bear the
remains to their last resting plhce.
In the meantime Capt. H. W. Perry,
pf Battery B, Loulsburg, with a squad
termed a double column, through
which the casket was borne.
At the gravi the flag waB taken from
the casket and presented to the family
in beautifully chosen and tender words
by Lieut. Odom, Commander of the
Post nam od In honor of the deceased.
The music committee of the Memorial
Association sang sweetly "Comrade
Rest" aftpr which the benediction waa
pronounced by Rev. Mr. Creech. A
military cordon was formed and the
last ml'Jtary rite was performed when
Bugler Paul Deltiel, of Nashville,
Bounded Taps. During the ceremony
the members of the flowers committee
had covered the new made grave with
the choicest of flowers.
Even though through renewed be
reavement the hearts of the members
of the family and relatives were burst
ing with sorrow and grief, the conso
lation of an Interest and a desire to
share In paying honor and tribute to
such a Worthy son, as was evidence by
so many being present from far and
near must have sweetened to a great
extent the bitter cup.
The Memorial Association has al
lowed the body of no boy to be return
ed to Franklin County without hold
ing a memorial service In his honor.
And always respecting the wishes of
the family. It Is exceedingly gratify
ing to look back and realise the un
stinted cooperation of each and all of
Its members and the public generally.
It Is this cooperation that has brought
about a success that has given Frank
lin County the Distinction of having
the most perfect and complete organt
cation and doing more honor In a
more patriotic manner than anywhere
else In the State and in so far as has
been ascertained here In our neigh
boring States. Bnt the work that has
been done has been a work- of love,
cheerfully and enthusiastically con.
trlbuted, tho only regret any one has
had is that they could do no more. Al
though this 1s probably the last ser
vice that we can bold orrer the remains

press the passage of bonus legislation
for the ex-soldiers, endorsed the Dem
iocratic delegation in Congress, and
denounced as "overt, unfair aiKl cow
ardly" the attack of the Republicans
on the Democratic administration of
The committee has worked on the
platform since 2:30 in the afternoon.
Lindsey Warren, of Beaufort, was
called to the chair during the report
of the committee, and Heriot Clarkson,
of Charlotte, read the unanimous re
port for the committee. Mr. Clark
eon told the convention that the com
mittee regretted the delay incident to
making the report, but that there were
many delegations to be heard and a
number .of resolutions to be passed on.
The platform is one of the briefest
fcver adopted, but a great deal is pack
ed into it. Significant is the fact that
the party endorses workmen compen
ration legislation this year. It is aU
so significant that the plank calling
for a constitutional amendment to al
low the taxing of judges is left out.
^ Following the usual declaration of
.principles, and general endorsement
the platform plunges into particularl
xations and endqrses in detail practk
|<ally everything the last twp sessions
ykf the legislature have done in regard
Co .roads, health, taxation, local self
?gorernment in taxation matters, pen
! sion6 lor veterans, creation of the rev
j enue department, aids for charitable
, institutions, and closes this part by
' pointing with particular pride to the
fact that Governor Morrison has" vtg=
crously recommended this type of leg
islation. Then after thanking the
doctors who are helping treat the un
fortunate people of the State through
the medical acts named by the gover
nor, the platform takes up another line
of endorsements and commends the
jUve at Home campaign, recommends
the passage of laws conserving the
! fish of the State and increasing t&o
production of fish <in the State.
I Those who looked for a fight over
1 the platform were doomed to disap>
pointmentj for there wi s not the slight
! eBt evidence of any dissatisfaction
with the report of the committee. It
was adopted unanimously without com
ment for discussion. Two minutes
after Mr. Clarkson had presented it
Col. A. D. Watts was making a mo
tion to adjourn, and the Democratic
Convention of nineteen tweuty-two be
came history a few seconds later.
The platform follows:
Profoundly thankful to Divine Prov
idence for the great blessings to our
j beloved commonwealth of North Caro
' Una, the Democratic party, in conven
tion assembled, does hereby declare its
platform as follows:

On Tuesday evening, April 25, the

j ity to the sad and serious as she pre- j
: sented the bereaved lover's memories
1 of a lost heart which are stirred by
the music of Verdi's Opera. This was
made still more effective by Miss Hoi

^elections from that Opera.
Miss Bolton s<wjg two plaintive mel

the program she sang another song in j
'the same strain "From the Land or
'the Sky Blue Water" by Cadman and
| a brighter selection from Neicyinger
| "Sweet Miss Mary." She also favor
!ed the audience with one encore, the
well known favorite, "My Rosary."
Although M4ss Scull in her first se
lection showed that she was quite cap
able of portraying the traclc side of
life, she proved in her presentation of
Mayo's novel, "Polly of the Circus" that
her real forte lies in the brighter and
more normal situations of life.
Her portrayal of the little waif
Polly was sympathetic and showed a
clear insight into Polly's character,
while her delineation of the person, of
Mandy the .cook of deacon Strong, and
of Jim and Toby from the circus were
equally good. " *
A large number of relatives from
out of town as well as town people
