A GATHERING of
men of Pinehurst met
last week and put in
motion several plans
that will soon blossom
forth for the delight of
the neighborhood. The
most dramatic of these
Avas a more or less definite program for
the pageant expected to be held at the
fair next Fall.
Historical pageants have been staged
in many parts of the country with great
success. But it is doubtful if a more
dramatic and varied series of events, par
ticipated in by a more divers personel
than can be represented here has ever
been staged. This at least is unique it
will in large measure be the re-enactment
of actual scenes once taking place
among the ancestral pines by the very
descendants of the original caste. The
costumes and the paraphanalia the
Bonnie Blue Flag, the powdered peri
wig, the old flint lock rifle, the schooner
wagon, the bag pipe and the tartan, the
cavalry sabre and the poke bonnet j the
golden locket, gift of King George, and
the starry ensign of Lafayette himself
these will be real, the actual things which
live in the traditions of the country.
The Highland Scotch are of all people
the most tenacious of tradition, the fond
est of their songs and their memories,
proudest of their records and most loyal
to their hardy race. Their history is one
of romance and adventure, heroism and
conflict from the beginning of time. And
yet they are a people so adverse to any
emotional display, so reserved and inar
ticulate, that it is hardly known, and
nowhere catalogued. In a day when all
men endeavor to advertise across the face
of the heavens, they refuse even to hang
out a sign.
The consequence is that nobody knows
how rich is the inheritance of the inhabi
tants of the Sandhills. Not only is the
record of their race magnificent, but
this inheritance is more immediate and
personal than that of any other race on
earth. They are not merely members of
a proud nation they are the direct living
representatives of families, every one of
which is known in story and song,
admired and feared the world over.
Let me put this concretely, exactly as
it is. In 1746 there were in all the
Highlands of Scotland not more than
100,000 Highlanders. They were of the
families of MacDonald and Cameron,
McLeod, Stuart and Macgregor. A roll
call of their fighting men would possibly
muster but half an army corps. Yet since
that time hardly a bloody battle field has
been won in any part of the world but
that these men have held the storm center.
And they never lose their identity. Not
even in the Sandhills.
In June, 1745, two thousand of them
came down out of the hills with Charles
Stuart, a vagrant prince, and took the
city of Edinborough from the English
army as we would take a doll house from
an infant garrison. The roll call is pre
served. Thirty years later these same
men, or their sons, gathered as of old to
the sound of the pibrock on the hill at
Carthage, over here, and marched to bat
tle at Moore's Creek. The roll call was
the same precicely the same, name for
name, as far as it went.
And now observe. Precisely these same'
names would answer a call, were the elans
to be gathered for the defence of the
Sandhill region tomorrow morning. Read
ing the muster roll at Cross Hill in 1776.
is like reading a list of ones friends, or
of the tax payers of the county. Not a
man is missing from tne roll today. Their
cousins were at Waterloo and Calcutta,
in the Crimean and Ladysmith, and but
yesterday saved civilization on the left
flank at Mons. They themselves were at
Gettysburg and Lookout Mountain.
The plan is to have them rehearse in
person the history of their adventures
since first they struck oars across the
Atlantic, and to bring before our very
eyes heros and heroines, manners, cus
toms and changes as they have come and
