AGED VETERANS OF IHE COUP) Corn Cracker Reeallx Some Of The Heroes Of The Sixties And I’ay Tributes To Them. editor Cleveland Star: While people differ as to a sur er,■sxful life, let me cast my vote for die thin Kiev line that constitutes the remaining heroes that followed the varying fortunes of the Stars and Bars of the Southern Confeder acy. Many of the bravest of the brave sleep the sleep that knows no waking on the battlefields of Vir ginia; while the moan'ng pings chanted their last solemn requiem As a class they were exponents of gallant rourage; and their feats of arms were not excelled by the heroic three hundred at Thermo palen. the rhargrof the light Bri gade at Balklava, nor the Imperial Guard at Waterloo; where forever set the star of destiny of die im perial Corsican But with their gallant, achieve ments following the waning for tunes of Lee and Jackson—their greatest glory was in the victories of peace—when the Bonnie Blue flag was forever furled by the pall bearers of the Lost Cause "Fields diat, ran red with blood in April yielded a bountiful harvest in June, and horses that trans ported the flying artillery to the scene of action in early spring walked in the furrow to produce the fruits of the husbandmen " The writer has travelled extensively over the south, and was reared in a border state that furnished men for both the Blue and the Grey. With very few exceptions, those heroes of the Confederacy had the daunt less spirit that wrung success from apparent defeat-and to their lab ors and executive we arc Indebted for the miracle of the New South Look at the achievements of the late Julian S.

In road of telling the pupils of our public schools about the stupendous activity of manufacturing in Low ell. we commend you to High Point. Durham and other places. For quite a while these old heroes were neglected by a set of parsi monious lawmakers; but now they receive a respectable pension. Now, let every man that wore the grey in Cleveland county be paid this pension If they endured the priva tions of camp life and ever faced the enemy, let. every fnult and foible be forgotten Simon refer, a man of lofty physical courage de nied His Lord and swore like a seaman.
