It is entirely fitting that a nation should dedicate certain days
in each year on which honor is paid those who have made great sac
rifices for it. So this nation has set aside May 30, Memorial Day,
as a day on which to pay our tribute of respect to the heroes, living
and dead, of the Civil War. .
On Saturday in every city and town throughout this land ad
dresses will be made telling in eloquent words of the deeds of valour
wrought and the sacrifices made by those who offered ' their lives
that the nation might live and flowers will be strewn upon the
graves of those who have answered the call of "taps."
It is always inspiring to see a company of young men march
ing with heads erect, their step springy, every action denoting
strength and force, flags flying and bands playing. In our hearts
a martial fire is kindled and we are proud of our nation and our
But there is nothing that awakens and inspires our patriotism
as to watch the soldiers of 61 to 65 as they march on Memorial Day.
Their ranks are thin, straggy and broken ; their steps are slow and
feeble ; their backs are bent and their heads whitened by the hands
of time. As we watch them a thrill always passes over us. There
is something about them to us that is sacred.
We do not take them as individuals and measure and judge
them, but as a body they represent the men who offered all on our
nation's altar and preserved it for us. And now the end is near
for them, they have fought the good fight and can see the end of
the course. No man is a true American who does not honor and
revere the "old soldiers." When he thinks of how they suttered
privations of all kinds, faced death, starvation, the horrors of
prisons for their country without flinching, the love of country is
given a new birth. May the lives and deeds of these men make
us resolve to emulate their example and give our best to our country
not only in time ofwar but in time of peace.
Recently in our reading we saw the statement, "independent
thinkers are few in number." When we consider the statement
carefully we must admit that it is true.
Nearly all of us gather our ideas and views from others and
the great mass of the people hold the same opinion. The man who
thinks indepentely is considered queer.
Authority has great weight with all of us. Our first thought
Avhen a proposition is presented, which is new to us, is what do
other people think of it and how the matter has been considered by
prominent people in former days. To examine and study questions
carefully, to secure the best thoaght of all ages on them is a good
thing, but what others have thought should not absolutely control
us. It should have weight but only such weight as the grounds
advanced justifies. Too many of us allow others to do our thinking.
This is true in religion, law, education, society and science.
We accept the religion and politics of our fathers largely as a mat
ter of course. We run our schools upon the same system as was
in vogue years ago. In law the important thing is to find an
authority to support a proposition.
Someone has said, "convention is three fourths of every per
son's life." This is a broad proposition and is only another way of
saying that few of us act or think independently. Is this true be
cause of lack of courage, because we are lazy or because we do not
think ? We have decided that some are afraid to have convictions,
others are too lazy to examine into matters and others dp not think,
just accept the views of others.
To be an.independent thinker requires labor, courage and brains,
because if you Jiink independently you are certain to run counter
to authority and conventions. It takes labor because you can not
have opinions and views without investigation and examining ques
tions. It takes courage because if you do this you will oppose
authority and conventions because the ' conditions change in each
generation and the reason for the convention changes. It takes
brains because unless you have brains your opinions will be of no
value and you are almost certain to make absurd deductions and
Independent thinkers are necessary if the world is going to
make any progress. If you accept authority you are allowing some
one else to do your thinking. This is wrong. Have your own opinions
and views and have them because you have studied the questions
out for yourself, not because some one else has expressed a certain
opinion. Above all things do not condemn a man who thinks inde
pendently, if you have not the energy, the brains or the courage
to think independently yourself.
Although we have frequently stated that under no condition
would we publish anonymous communications, people continue to
send them in. To sign a communication, "One who was there" or
'A Subscriber" does not give us the information we must have.
Your name must be signed to the item, before. we will publish it.
You are wasting time and postage to send us anything for publica
tion unless you sign it. We will not publish your name unless you
so desire. We appreciate your items if you will only Bign your
name. If you are not willing to let us know who sent them in, we
are not willing to stand responsible for them to our readers. Please
bear this in mind as we never violate this rule.

Ten charming chil
dren between tho
(ices of six and
1 ten had arrived at
Imi- linmn liv nnna
and twos at tho
appointed hour to
participate In the
delights of her
young son Hen
ry's birthday par
ty. They had
been safely herded
up the stairs and
thore had been
relieved of wraps
parcels; they had
tified and re
adopted their sev-
nrnl nnnlat tianH
k kerchiefs and then
they had filed solemnly down the
stairs and had arrived on the scene
of the projected festivities. The
dreaded moments during which Henry
received and examined his birthday
gifts had also been passed through
with outward calm. Therefore, Mrs.
Albright permitted herself to take
that long breath of relief.
It is true that Henry had gazed with
undisguised scorn at the offering of
Mamie Tuttle, aged six a box of
paints with a box of feeble drawings
to color and then his absorption in
the marvelous Jackknlfe presented by
Walter had made him oblivious to
subsequent events, but these were
"The llttlo dears!" murmured Mrs.
Albright tenderly to her niece, who
was helping her entertain the small
guests. "I am so glad -we can make
them happy. Isn't that little Deals
girl a perfect angel? I think "
She was interrupted by an angry
squeal. The difficulty waB near at
hand. "Oh, Jane, you must be good
to your little brother!" she said to tho

lar friend, Mary Peck, had calmly dis

with virtuous dignity. "He's a horrlcfl
boy, and my mother says I'm not to
have anything to do with him."
"Huh;" retorted the aggrieved one.
"My mother says your mother can eat
her old calling list, and she hopes it
chokes her, that's all!"
"No, I don't want to play spin-the-platter,"
Mamie Tuttle was saying at
that moment to Mrs. Albright's niece,
who had approached her with bland
ishments. "No, I don't think games
aro any fun; they make me hot.
Haven't you got any lemonade at your
party, Henry?" Mamie Tuttle leaned
back languorously and turned her
melting glance on Henry with all the
coquetry of an experienced person of
For a moment that Bmall boy halted,
Indefinably attracted by the novelty
of this appeal, but his attention was
distracted almost at once by the im
pious conduct of Walter, who had
taken down Henry's favorite sailboat
and was removing the sails, mast and
all. Instantly party and manners wero
forgotten in a wave of wrath.
"You give that here!" yelled Henry,
with astonishing volume. "Don't you
dare to do that, t say! Qlvo it to
"Henry, Henry!" interposed his
mother in a shocked voice. But that
Immaculately clothed youngster had
hurled himself upon the other boy
and had wrenched tho precious sail
boat from him. Bewildered by this in
fringement upon etiquette and the sa
cred laws of hospitality, Walter could
think of no better response than to
black Henry's eye with his fist
Three minutes later Mrs. Albright
and the niece, whitoly determined,
were convoying to the bathroom two
small boyd with tear stained faces
and Injured noses. The terrified rem
nant of tho guests gazed at one an
other in awe.
"Boys is so blu-blub-blubby!" finally
gasped little Katharine Beals, hiding
her face in her arms and bursting Into
"Aw, they're all right, sis; quit your
crying," consoled her brother,
promptly recovering his sang frold at
the display of feminlno weakness.
The tension being thus relaxed
Mary Peck's demure voice was heard
making a senslbio suggestion. "Why
don't they let us eat?" she demanded.
Mrs. Albright, returning after hav
ing consigned her son to the minis
trations of tho second maid, heard
these words of wisdom and longing
and noted the hopeful stir which they
aroused among the other children.
Why not adopt small Mary's sugges
tion? she asked herself. Perhaps tho
socializing influence of eating In com
mon, of which she had heard at tho
Woman's cJub, would accomplish what
she had failed to do for these young'
barbarians, the angels of an hour ago. '
Henry and Walter, subdued If not
regenerate, wore hastily recovered,
the whole party was marshaled to the
long table of the sun porch, and tn
40 seconds all signs of storm had dls-,
appeared as If by magic. All was
bright contentment. One saw there
only polite and ajmablo childhood,
Mrs. Albright's ruffled spirits were
soothed. "The little dears I" she mur
mured to her niece.
