joined the na;ion today in memorial- j
izing, with simple dignity, the heroism
of the 19 bluejackets and marines
who gave <:heir lives at Vera Cruz. As
the most impressive funeral pageant
since the Spanish war started from
the Battery to the Brooklyn navyyard,
it was as if the whole population
of i:iie city was there.
The people were still, standing
shoulder to shoulder in a community

In the line of marchers ah-at followed

dead were the chiefs of the State and
ci y1 governments and as well as many
more distinguished men of nearly
every calling; but every eye in the
throngs that lined the v/ay turned
firs: to the carriage where President
i Wilson rode close behind the last,

Washington during the night and

And to the president was left the
privilege of voicing the nation's grief (
and the nation's belief that those who '

done for their country a service not

"The feeling that is uppermost," he
said, "is one of profound grief, and
yet then is mixed wi:h that grief a

iThere was a wistful note in is
voice as he added: "I never was un- :

things just as hard to do as to go

From a bird's eye view the multitude
aligned along the route of the |
funeral cortege presented the pic-;
ture of a vast human stream connecting
two arms of the sea. Muffled
voices, soft spoken commands by military
officers, the melancholy tolling i
of the Trinity church bell, emphasized j
a hush that had fallen over a city of ^
The dead were landed by the tugs
Traffic and Correction early in the
morning and lay in Srate in the Battery

fore the procession started. There 1
were 17 coffins. The other two vie- j
tims of Mexican snipers died the day;
after the Montana had lef: Vera Cruz
with the dead. j1
The police escort headed the cor-1
tege and was followed by the naval
battalions from 'he Wyoming and:

was drawn by four horses, astride two

Directly behind ;he caissons, which
stretched out in single file, were the
carriages of the president, Gov. Glynn,
Secretary Daniels, Mayor Mitchel and
other distinguished guests. The presence
of !;he president in the procession
came as\ a surprise for it had
been announced that he would proceed
direct from Ithe Pennsylvania
station to the navy yard."
All along the route the strew was
black with spectators. Windows and
roofs, half completed steel frames of
buildings, all were crowded. There
were thousands of .policemen; one
every 10 feet of sidewalk. During the
entire ceremony there was net a suggestion
As the procession entered City Hall
place, the voices of 500 children rose
o mcC: them. The children sang
"Xearer, My God, to Thee."
Mayor Mitchel briefly eulogized the
dead and laid upon one of the caissons
a wreath of flowers, symbolic of
the city's respect. After the brief
halt the cortege resumed its measr
tired progress Ko Manhattan bridge
a::d over this to the navy yard. The
quiet restraint that had characterized
the crowds in the streets gave way as
the procession proceeded to ':he East
Side and Brooklyn to storms of applause.
Here it seemed that the presence
of the president eclipsed the grief
of the occasion.

In the naval parade ground the
demonstration found a small physical
compass. Less than 10,000 were
able to pack themselves into the inclosure
and face the stand where stood
the president with bared head. Mayor
Mitchel was at his right and Secre;ary
Daniels of '.he navy at his left.
With sharp precision the bluejackets,
their white hats catching the dull
sunlight, drew up into military formation
before the s':and. A: the same
rime the 17 caissons, draped with
flags and banked with flowers, contributed
by the sailor comrades of
the dead, were laid directly in front
of the s'and. A moment later the
crowd was permitted to enter and immediately
it covered the entire field.
The band of the battleship Texas
played softly "Nearer, My God, to
Thee" and Naval Chaplain Cassard
began his invocation. In referring to
the dead heroes, he prayed it would
not be necessary to make further sacrifice
on the altar of patriotism.
Secretary Daniels then turned to
the president and read the names of
the 19 men in whose honor the funeral
was held and delivered a brief
Grieved But Strong.
President Wilson stood with head
bowed. His deeply lined face showed
the grief and solemnity of !the occasion,
but in general his appearance
gave no indication of the recent
strain at Washington. He delivered
his eulogy of the dead in a low, clear
voice that carried to the faii.hest part
of the field. It was followed by a
prayer by Rabbi Stephen Wise and a
benediction by John Chidwick, chaplain
of the old battleship Maine.
Three volleys nrea Dy tne manues,
the final melody of "Taps'' and the
funeral services were complied. They
had lasted a little less than an hour.
During this time the oppressive heat
proved too much for several spectators
who fainted and had to be carried
away on stretchers. One marine
was among them.
For half an hour after the service
the caissons lay as they had been
placed, in front of the s:and, where
all cculd view them, then they were
carried into Ue naval barracks. Three
were itaken back to the Montana,
which steamel oi-t. of -he harbor for
Bos"on late in the day. Relatives
claimed the three bodies of these,
whose home was New York, and preparations
were made to send the o:her
bodies to their separate destinations.

Warning Against Dangerous PreserrPowders
and Canning Compounds.
Special to The Herald and News.
Washington, D. C., May 14.?The at
lenuun ui uie department, 01 agucmture
has recently been called to tha
widespread use, especially in rural
communities, of salicylic acid in putting
up preserves. The head of a large
drug and chemical supply house states
that, people living in southwest Virginia,
North and South Carolina, Kentucky,
Tennessee, and western Georgia,
have been purchasing salicylic
acid in one-fourth pound packages
for a number of years and that this
prac:ice has grown to an enormous extern.
This dealer states further that
rmlv o fpw xvppke hp Tipnpivpri an
order from one wholesale grocer for
50 gross of these goods.
The department is aware that this
practice is not confined to salicylic
acid under its own name alone, but
that large quantities of this acid, and
of boric acid as well, are sold under
fanciful names as preserving powders
or canning compounds at prices which
are much in excess of their real value.
In the directions for use, the house
wife is told 10, fill the jar with th?
fruit or vegetables, cover with water
and add a teaspoonful of the powder:
It is true that these powders may
prevent the decay of '.tte fru|t or
vegetable, but they also encourage uncleanly
or careless work, and their
excessive use may be attended with.
very serious effects upon the health.
Salicylic acid is a medicine of the
greatest value in acu?.e articular rheumatism
and certain other diseases.
It is well known as a poisonous substance,
and one of the evils whicb
may accompany its usexis derangement
of the digestion. R is therefore plain
that its extensive use in food may lead \
tn rlichirhan^o nf fiiSefpsHnn Atlfl health.
It is entirely practicable to put up
bo- h fruits and vegetables in suck
a manner that they will keep indefinitely
by sterilizing the products by
means of heat, and there is no excuse
for running any risk by the use
of preserving powders. The department
of agriculture has issued the following
Farmers' Bulletins on canning
F. B. 203 Canned Frui't, Preserves
F. B. 359 Canning Vegetables in the
F. B. Canning Tomatoes at Homa
and in Club Work.
These bulletins, which may be obtained
withput cost by applying to
the Division of Publications of th?
department, give exact directions for
canning and preserving foods without
the use of preserving powders or can
