		        Yorktown.

[newspaper clipping]
		In the death of Brig.-Gen Alex.
Hays on Thursday, the country has sustained an irre-
parable loss.  Knowing nothing akin to fear, his intre-
pidity to battle was never exceeded by any hero, ancient
or modern.  He died beneath the Stars and Stripes, and
under a streamer attached, bearing the inscription,
�My God and my Country.�
