Chancellor Hntchins 1 address follows : "You have honored me by youi invitation to "participate . in this memorial service. No higher privilege can come to anyone than the opportunity to raise his voice in commendation of the heroes the ideals, and the women of the South. "We are gathered today for the purpose of paying a tribute to heroes of the Suuth who have answered the last roll call; to say a word in commemoration of their virtues- and to lay flowers from the garden of memory or their common tomb. Kanks Grow Thir<. "As we view the thin, thin ranks of the survivors of the memorable struggle of the sixties and review the long roll call of those who have gone before, «t- irc afaln reminded of the uncertainty of mortal life nnd Impressed v,-:th the truth that "Man like n tree, rlourisheth a little aiid is cut down." Few arc the survivor;, of those who held the lines on memorable battlefield: The dead outnumber the livin» "All they that walk the earth, Are but a handful to the countless tribes that slumber in its bosom Take the wings of the morning Pierce the Barcan wilderness -,0r lose thyself in the continuous / .woods, Where rolls the Oregon, And hears no sound, save his own fdashlngs; Yet! the dead are there." F^ntl the vast assemblage whu sit In the ( audience chamber of the dead outnumbers those who yet must take the silent journey «nd keep the rendezvous with death as the sands of .the seashore outnumber the bnrks the bread ocean bears on its bosom And how silently they have gon- thcss later years. As a peaceful river flowing through a quiet val- cy. kissed by the sunshine and »vcd by the breeze, gently one by one they have drifted into the ocean of eternity with scarce a npple to tell lls they had gone.

Rice A. Pierce The United States will never participate in another war unless someone attacks us on our own soil, In the opinion of Gen. fiiee A. Pierce of Union City, Tenn., that grand old southern gentleman who is a Biiesi of honor ut the stale convention of the United Daughters of tiie Confederacy because he is com- mahder-in-chict of the United Confederate veterans. I Mr. pierce declares lie didn't mind fighting when, at the age of H. he joined Cicn. Forrest's eaval- iy, but admits he had enough of war during his three years' enlistment. "The world is in no condition for another war and the i>eople of the United States won't stand for it— that is unless sonic foreigner attacks us and he wouldn't lust Ions; on our home ground," declared the 81-year-old veteran. Admires Roosevelt Ccn. Pierce greatly admires Pres- [ident Roosevelt. On December ID of last year he presented to Roosevelt a cony of the resolution declaring allegiance to Roosevelt, which was signed by every member of the United Confederate Veterans. Tills was (lie first time the veterans had declared their allegiance to a president since the time of Jeffersoii Davis. "You young people think we are loo old for all tills new deal stuff —but we are not. w'e view with interest all of the experiments being tried and if they all don't suc- cedd It is allright with us for we know President Roosevelt Is doing better than anyone else coulfl." Until one hears Gen. pierce viv- iilly discuss the War Between the States it is almost impossible to believe that he is noarlng the 90 mark. He Insists that tlw closest lie ever came to Ming 111 was when three horses were killed under him during the war and the fright almost made him sick! For 32 years lie has been actively engaged in the practice of law at Union City, where lie Is a member of (he firm of Pierce and Pry.

On the sunny slopes of Smyrna . . . in the fertile fields of Macedonia . , . along the shores of the Black Sea . , . grows a kind of tobacco that is different from any other tobacco in the world. T HESE Turkish tobaccos nre the onfy tobaccos of foreign cultivation that are used to any great extent in making American cigarettes. Turkish tobaccos are famous for their spicy aroma, and a blend of the right kinds of Turkish tobacco with our own homegrown tobaccos is better than any one kind used alone. In Chesterfield we balance mild, ripe tobaccos grown in this country with just the right amounts of the right kinds of Turkish. It is by blending and cross- blending these different tobaccos that we make Chesterfield the cigarette that's milder, the cigarette that tastes better. © 19 W.
