In the Name of God We W
Set Up Our Banners.
Thoughts of the Re-union.
A?ong the Pennsylvania aveni
where marched the armies of Gr?
and Sherman in 1865, what is 1<
of the army of Lee and the Confe
eracy paraded to-day. It was t
parade of the first Confederate i
union held north of the Potorm
and the first time the Union Yetera
ever marched with the men th
fought fifty odd years ago. Son
how I felt that Lee, Longstreet ai
Jackson, looked down in bened
rion upon the scenes in the stree
of the National Capitol to-day, ai
that the ghosts of Kershaw, Fe
rest, Stewart and Pickett were wi
their old comrades. And so it is w<
that veterans of the Blue march*
with veterans of the Gray. If i
unions are held it is to revive mem
ries, to strengthen comradeship,
answer roll calls that grow short
each year. It was a thrilling coi
trast, in line this morning, of no
and fifty years ago; enfeebled me
some of them on their last marci
the bands played the old tunes ar
the new. How the music stirrt
me and those about me! How
quickened the footsteps of ag?
men who passed in review. Ho
memories crowded one upon tl
other and marched us out of the pre
p*>t into the long ago.
Aeain I saw Pickett charge u
the rocky sides of Gettysburg;
pictured Stonewall Jackson as fc
fell that bloody night at Chance
lorsville; and Longstreet, as he fe
from his horse badly wounded ?
the Wilderness; and Lee's farewe
address to his broken army at A]
pomaltox. One might see Stewai
and Forrest as they led their cou
ageous cavalrymen into charge
that no latter-day warriors will eve
excel. Longstreet, Gorden. Bei
and Bartow, Sidney Johnson, Hi
and Hampton and Butler-they a!
marched before us as though the
were in life to-day.
No' southern city could hav
given the survivors of the Confec
erate armies a more touching greel
ing than they received to-day. Th
flag of the United States fluttere
beside the 1 Stars and Bars" an<
told the story of what was and wha
is-one flag, one country, one peo
pie that's all. But above all, bring
ing a lump into the throat and
queer tingle into the body, were th
aiis that the bauds played. "Th
Stars and Stripes Forever, with it
plea to laggard feet, "Swane
River," with it's call to sentimenta
thoughts; "Old Black Joe," bring
ing memories of "darkies" an(
ante-bellum days; "My Old Ken
tucky Home," with its dreams ol
content; "Carry me Back to Oh
Virginny," forcing pictures of Bul
Run, Manassas, Petersburg anc
Richmond; "The Girl I Left Be
hind," one of the camp-fire songi
of the 00's," "Maryland, My Mary
land, " with its martial swing; anc
"Dixie"-"Dixie" under the spel
of which men went bravely to then
death and died with a blessing or
their lips more than half a century
Happy to Hear Dixie.
The "Old Confeds" swelled hap
pily from the ranks to-day when
"Dixie" was played-because, nc
matter al what point along the
avenue it was heard, the throngs on
the sidewalks cheered and waved
hats and handkerchiefs, and heart
beats were faster. Yes, Washing
ton gave us a warru receptioo. No
organization received greater ap
plause, none deserved more.
Here was the contrast of which
I have written-the indissoluble
link of love for country and a cause
whatever that cause be, that ties
together American hearts, and that
reaches out across the years in the
hand-shake of understanding. When
Lincoln was asked how he would
regard the prodigal sou'.h after the
war he said: "I shall treat them just
as though they had never been
away." That is the way the gov
ernment of to-day and the Capitol
of our country treated us at this re
union. So the vision comes again,
and somehow I feel that Liucoln,
Grant, Sherldon and Meade looked
down approvingly to-day from the
land of the last roll call, aud with
them, bearing through the blue and
gray of heaven, Lee and Jackson
and Pickett and Longstreet-and
otters who led us on in the "six
ties,'' joiied in the benediction of
their former foes. And now, as it is
all over, and the handiwork of
Providence has been revealed in the
passing of yearf, U?'U while war is
upon the young men of this genera
tion, I am glad that we came to
Washington in li? 17 instead of
when we battled for the Capitol of
this government a half century ago.
Many things that I witnessed were
both touching and amusing. "The
Lone Star Band" that came from
Texas had a stuffed rabbit, hung
high on a pole, as their mascot;
ind as they marched along where
President Wilson stood, a Confed
erate and a federal veteran, one
fi om Texas and the other from
Maine, marched side-by-side, each
holding their old battle-flags, full
lof bullet holes, the "Stars and
Stripes," and the "Stars and Bars,"
and as they reached the President's
stand at the peace movement, they
dipped their flags together and pro
claimed with a loud voice, saying,
"We are wearing the two Hags to
gether, President Wilson. It is
now, "One God, one flag, one coun
try, and one people." Together let
Ub sweetly live, together let us die."
That was the grandest sentiment
that I heard while in Washington;
and I could see that the President
was deeply moved. We will go to
France or anywhere you want to
send us." This became a favorite
cry. "Call on us if the boys can't
do it/' One other thing that at
tracted the President's attention,
was an old Confed from Texas,
with a white piece of cloth and car
ried it as though it was a flag, with
this inscription in large red let
ters: "Damn a man who ain't fer
his country right or wrong.

Where Does Music Come In?
Thousands of music workers in
the United States are finding their
heads filled with many entirely new
thoughts and speculations as to
what relation their life-work may
have with the astounding world war
which is eclipsing all other human
interests. What is my job-my
bit? Where does music come in?
Am I playing the part of a weak
ling or am I really doing a great
and noble service in this era of cos
mic crisis? Grive and important
questions, these-deserving serious
It is a significant thing that the
immortal leaders of men, even those
who have had no practical know-1
ledge of music, haye been firm in
the conviction that the power of !
music is so deep, so vital, so hu
man, so necessary, that nothing can
take its place. There are fine
pictures of John Milton and
Oliver Cromwell- Sometime when
you are in Washington go to the
Corcoran Gallery and see the origin
al. Here is England's famous war
lord of other days listening to Eng"
land's great epic poet, Milton, who
was an enthusiastic musician. Bri
tain's man of iron, sword in hand,
listens to the playing of Milton
with the same seriousness with
which he might have led his troops
into battle. Cromwell believed
firmly in the importance of music
as did Napoleon, Bismark and
Gladstone. He went out of his
way to show his appreciation of it.
The Hon. Arthur Balfour, late on
a great mission to this country, is
an experienced and accomplished
musician who spends much of his
spare time at the art. It would be
easy to make a list of a dozen of
our strongest American business
men who have not merely given
fortunes to music but who give
their valuable time to the practice
of the art because they find iu the
power of music something so up
lifting, so ennobling, so invigorat
ing, so refreshing, that nothing can
take its place.
The sun has long since gone
down on the day when the man of
affairs looked upon music as an ef
feminate pastime worthy only, of
sickly boarding-school girls. Charles
Schwab, Andrew Carnegie. Cyrus
H. K. Curtis, Henry H. Flagler,
Col. Henry Higginson and other
men whose fortunes total hundreds
of millions are never too busy to
keep them from getting a little
tnu*ic into their daily lives.
Do awaj' with music, flowers,
poetry, color, design and we would
find ourselves living in a miserable
prison from which only death
would give us a welcome liberation.
Music is one of the great things
which make life worth while.
Yesterday the "man in the street"
thought it immaterial, ephemeral, a
toy of tiie idle. Now it is known
to be one of the invaluable ele
ments of existence
So, in this day, when all civiliza
tion is on the vortex of the pit of
fire, blood, steel and death, music is
one of the things which help us in
keeping our soul equilibrium. We
must have ;t and we must have it
in unstinted measure, whether it be
the music of the harmonica in the
trenches or the music of the grand
symphony orchestra in the concert
Lord Derby, whose name will be
immortally associated with enlist
ments in England, has come out in
the strongest terms advocating the
need for entertainments and amuse
ments of all kinds in war times to
offstt the sin of pessimism. Music
is now being looked upon by all the
warring countries in Europe as the
torch of a newer and higher liberty,
freeing the souls of men from the
greatest grief which has ever come
to the human race.-The Etude.

IS THIS "YOUNG MAN'S AGE?'
Golden Period of Achievement Cornea
When Mari ls Well Past Forty
Years of Age, lt ls Claimed.
"Our times are frequently called the
age of the young men. But when one
looks back to the revolutionary era of
our country, from 1775 to 1S25, and
considers the striking youthfulness of
the leaders of America the appellation
does not appear exactly to flt," said a
New York man ip a recent interview.
"Nor do the men now in their twen
ties and thirties push the men of the
forties and fifties hard enough to prove
that this is pre-eminently the young
man's age. Unless men of forty are
considered young, this scarcely Is a
young man's age.
"The youngsters under thirty receive
an undue degree of attention from the
professions and business. A notion
prevails that the latest graduate from
college, technical school or university
is more desirable than the man who
has had post-graduate courses in life's
college of experience. Best sellers,
movies and magazine articles about
business foster the notion. Conse
quently, a distressingly large number
of men from twenty-five to thirty ex
pect to be the bosses of big businesses
or corresponding professions or tech
nical vocations by the time they are
"Many will, If they work hard and
prove to possess capacity, occupy posi
tions of responsibility. But scarcely
at thirty-five. The golden age of
achievement really comes In most
cases 15 years later. In fact, the pres
ent age is the age of the mature man.
In literature the success today is not
the man of thirty. Irvin Cobb would
almost universally be considered a
success in literature, but Cobb is forty
one and has not reached the fullness
of his power. George Ade ls fifty-one,
Tarkington fortj--eight, Frank Cobb, a
chief writer of editorial, forty-eight.
The success achieved through develop
ment of talent, hard work and sacri
fice is reserved for the mature."
SEA MOSS MAKES GOOD' FOOD
Made Into "Laver Bread," lt ls Found
on Sale in All Welsh Markets
Near the Coast.
The sea moss on the Irish coast,
called, by some "sloak," is really laver.
In Ireland it is called "Sloucaun"
(with the "c" hard), and "Slouc" for
brevity. In Ireland, as in England, It
is prepared by washing, to get rid of
sand, etc., and then boiling.
When boiled, a little butter or bacon
fat is added and a dash of lemon juice
completes the preparation. It is eaten
with fish, and by some with mutton
instead of jelly.
In Wales a great deal of laver ls
used, mostly in the form of "laver
bread," says the London Chronicle.
The boiled laver is mixed with a pro
portion of oatmeal and shaped into
"Laver bread," or "lava bread," as
It seems to be pronounced, is on sale
in all the Welsh markets anywhere
conveniently near the coast.
There are two brothers in Indianap
olis whose names are not John and
Richard Jones, but might be. Richard
owns a grocery store and his telephone
listing follows directly under the list
ing of John's residence. This con
versation took place the other day be
tween Mrs. John Jones and a voice
on the wire :
"Hello, is this Jones'?"
"Have you got any soap?"
"Why, yes, I guess I've got a little.
"Why, I want to buy some. What
do you think?"
"I've only got one cake. Who ls
"Isn't this Jones' grocery?"
"Good night!"-Indianapolis News.
New Use for Motorcycles.
That new uses for motorcycles are
still being discovered is shown by the
fact that a Californian with a big lawn
to care for drives his mower with the
aid of his powered cycle. After sev
eral unsuccessful attempts he devised
satisfactory means of attaching tho
grass cutter to the front forks of his
machine, and now he asserts that he
can trim the lawn in about one-tenth
the time formerly required. The only
consideration that limits his speed ap
parently is the fact that the mower
must be oiled frequently.-Popular Me
A certain discontent with the im
mediate job is one of the most com
mon of human fallings. Ninety-nine
out of every hundred of us are con
scious of it at intervals, or more or
less continuously. There are times,
and with some it is practically all the
time, when we would like to do some
thing else, be something else or -be
somewhere else. The grass on the
other side of the road looks greener;
the other fellow's job looks easier and
more' desirable.-Providence Journal.
Making Fire With Ice.
Take a smooth, clear, curving piece
of ice, one not too thick, and hold it
in the rays of the sun so that it will
bring the light to a sharp focus just
as will a lens in a reading glass. The
ice will not last long enough to burn
a piece of paper, but if the focus rests
on a speck of gun cotton it will cause
combustion and a flame will result.
Arctic explorers have built fires often
with this expedient when matches
were abseot and flint and rock not

Why Should My Boy Study
There rarely seems to be any
doubt upon the part of parents
about desirability of the daughter
having music lessons. With the
boy, however, the case seems dif

music even more than the girl. If
the father or the mother is in doubt,
perhaps these answers to the ques
tion may help. "Why should my
boy study music?"
