A bronze bust of Edga ATcn
! Poe was unveiled last. Saturday
at the Lmversity ot Virginia.
Dr. Paul Barringer, an honored
son of Cabarrus, as 'president o:
the faculty, received Lie bast I

"We note thr.t Dr. Barringer
defends the memory of tho poet
from the charge that he had
been expelled from that school.
The biographer, however,
leaves room to suspect that he
probably but norrowly escaped
He possessed a genius of
which the Amercan people ate
proud, but his vices were hard
Edgar was left an orphan at
an early age. He was adopted
by a wealthy merchant in the
city of Baltimore, by the name of
Allen. He went to school in
London four years, when he re
turned to America and entered
the school that now honors him
He displayed extraordinary
talents, but became too fond of
fast living, and quarreled with
his benefactor till a breach oc
curred and he again went to Eu
rope, where he served in the
Greek army a while and became
very erratic in his life.
He returned to America and
became reconciled with Mr. Al
len and got into "West Point. He
did not act well and he and Mr.
Allen had a permanenT aliena
tion. In 1835 he won a prize
offered by the Baltimore Sunday
Visitor for a romance and poem.
From this on he became editor
and contributor to Miverai liter
ary journals and maggazinos. It
was in 1816 that he wrote 4 'The
Raven," and gave himself a
world-wide reputation. Strange
to say, he received the pitiable
sum of ten dollars for that
' In ISIS he lost hi wife to
whom he had been married two
years. The next year, loK, he
was on his way to New York to
arrange for a second marriage,
but got on a spree and died in
Baltimore, his native city, at the
age of 40 years. It w;.s a case
