Eloquent John Temple Graves upon
whom fell the Mantle of
Henry W. Grady.
To a university audience, the elo-
quent successor of Henry W.Grady,
of the Atlanta constitution, needs
little introduction. If there was no
other means of judging the man
other than the fact that he has taken
the place of his able predecessor,
so well known in the North, this fact
alone would make him well known
to the reading and thinking public.
It ls seldom, indeed, that a snan has
gained such a place in the hearts of
the people of the South, both as an
editor and orator as that held by
John T. Graves to-day. "The
Reign of the Demagogue" has gain-
ed for Mr. Graves an enviable repu-
tation whenever he has delivered it.
In his efforts to bind the North
and South more firmly together this
loyal Georgian has well earned the
title of the 'Apostle of the New
South, and with his surpassing elo-
quence linked the heroes of both
sections; thus, growing grand isi
flying high the starry emblem of
of our national unity.
Speaking of this uncomparable
orator the Boston Globe says edi-
"Seldom indeed hasany orator gain-
ed such instant success in Boston as
that which was won on Saturday even-
ing by Editor John Temple Graves of
Atlanta. It was not so much the bril-
liant diction of his speech, nor the
fervor of his appeal that aroused en-
thusiasm, though these were note-
worthy in every way. What made Mr.
Graves' address so peculiarly effective
and interesting was its great frank-
ness, its absolute sincerity and the
spirit of lofty patriotism which"mani-
fested itself throughout. There is no
danger that oratory will ever become a
,lost art, while there are men like this

Sonthron to appeal to the heart and
soul of the people of America."
The following complimentary no-
tices from other universities where
Mr. Graves appeared are well worth

-E. A. Gilmore: "In the opinion of
our committee and course, his lecture
was the finest specimen of genuine
oratory ever heard at DePauw Univer-

be welcome here.
As is well known, Mr. Graves will
appear here in the Students Lecture
association course tomorrow night,
and will deliver his famous lecture,
"The Reign of the Demagogue" on
that occasion.

There is a hitch in the arrange-
ments for the Cornell football game
Thanksgiving day at Minneapolis.
The Ithaca team wants $300 more
to come, as expenses will be heavier
than was thought. This will probab-
ly be conceded and the game play-
ed, though it is now known the Cor-
nells are demoralized and not very
anxious to come west. It appears
that Cornell is hoggish with other
places than the U. of M.-Detroit
