Wales, from the States of this glorious American
Iepubllc, from all the Islands of the sea, 'from
wherever live the sons of the glorious race that
speaks the language , Shakespeare spake and
thinks the thoughts that Milton thought, and
dreams the dreams that Tennyson dreamt--of this
race which stands and has so long stood 'tin the
foremost fles of time'-in they came trooping
to the rescue of ravished Belgium, of torn Serbla,
of bleeding Fance, of expiring democracy, with
'eyes front' and God's unseen hand on their
shoulders driving them ftrward in high emprise
'to do or to die.' They proved in 'the old land'
and in the new lands that those had cruelly
slandered thnem who had said their religion was
the Idolatrous worship of dollars, pounds, shill
ing, and pence. They demonstrated, on the con
trary, that they had not changed In character,
courage, heroisan, or endurance from those of
ther ancestors who demanded liberty at Runny
mede or stood with the Black Prince at Crecy and
Po-tlers or followed Richard 'of the lion heart'
on the deserts of Syri and over the hills of
Palestine, or 'summoned up their courage' with
heroic Prince Hal at Harfleur and Agincourt, or
from those who fought and won religious liberty,
with Drake and Howard as their shi. met the
hosts of the Spenlsh Armada and with the help
of God's winds sank It in the North Sea, while
their glorious queen, 'Great Elisabeth.' 'hurled
proud scorn at Philip and at Spain'; or from those
who, under Havelock, 'bearing the white man's
burden,' under the heat and glare of an East
Indian sun, entered Lucknow to the martial
strains of 'The Campbells are comlng and saved
its wounded men and famishing women and chll

bee completed the dedication of this continent to
the English language, English literatre, and Eng
lish law, making It today the most priceless Jewel
in the crown of the race's possession. These boys
of ours proved themselves worthily desenaded
from those who wrested our coasts and moun
talna and valleys from savage men and yet more
savage nature, and made of this continent the
broadet domestic hearth on this earth, around
which the sons and daughters of the race can
now gather; worthily sprun from those who later
at Lesingtol 'ired the shot which was heard
around the world,' or with Washington farved
and died and ndured and prevailed at Valley
porge, or, finally with him at Yorktown carried
to final victory the cause of American and Einglish
civil and political liberty, Inherited from their
ancestors scrom the ea and reaserted by them
here, not only for themselves, but, as is now
dearly seen, for Englismn In England itself
and iglish colony; worthy of their
fathers who won with Sherman and Grant or
lost with Jackson and Lee 'greatly falling with a
falling state,' and leving tfadeless names and
--conquoed renown for themselves and their
cause Our boys, the descendants of clI these
your boys and mine-'proved the metal of their
puastures' at Chateau-Thlerry, on the Somme. at
t. Mihie, and In the Argonne, and proved that
they had Ia them the blood of all of these, their
glorious sire, and like them 'knew no count of
self' when duty or country or liberty or justice
or civilisation called."
What Is now the spirit of Armistice day in
America? This, at least, can be answered In
part. Its "outward and visible sign" is honor to
the "Unknown Dead."
This is fa course a symbol for many things,
BRed into It the thing you and yours did for
your comtry and you have at least a part its
meanng-if you and yours did your best.
The iprtt o the day is in no-mall part a
glorifcation of the "Fighting Yank." But no in

It Is well that he fight best of all.
The tomb of the "Unknown Yank" at the
Arlington theater attracts thousands who wish to
attest their adherence to all of which it is the
symbol. In one short year It has become a
national shrine, possibly an international shrine.
The photograph reproduced herewith shows
Crawford C. McCullough of the International Ro
tarians placing a bronze wreath on the tomb.
The full meaning of this homage to the
"Unknown Dead" cannot be put into words. But
President Harding, in his address at the burial
last year, said some of the things that every
good American feels:
"Mr. Secretary of War and ladies and gentle
mem. we are met today to pay the impersonal
tribute. The name of him whose body lies before
us took flight with his imperishable soul. We
know not whenc he came, but only that his death
marks him with the everlasting glory of an
American dying for his country.
"Today's ceremonies proclaim that the hero
unknown is not unhonored. We gather him to the
Nation's breast, within the shadow of the (O4tol,
of the towering shaft that honors Washington,
the great father, and of the exquisite monument
to Lincoln. the martyred savior. Here the tnspira
tion of yesterday and the conscience of today for
ever unite to make the RepubliUc worthy of his
death for flag and country.
"As we return this poor clay to Its mother soil,
garlanded by love and covered with the decora
tions that only, nations can bestow, I can sense
the prayers of our people, of all peoples, that this
Armistice day shall mark the beginning of a new
and lasting era of peace on earth, good will
among men. Let me Join in that prayer."
And other shrines in honor of the "Unknown
Dead' are being set up over the country. Is
striking contrast to the surroundings in Arling

of America's brave. Is a shrine In the Mariposa
grove of Big Trees in Yosemite National park.
California, at the other edge of the continent.
This "Unknown Hero Tree," dedicated by the
American Legion, was old and great and stately
before the Declaration of Indepenaence was
signed, before Columbus discovered America,
before Christ was born. It, with Its compalnio
trees, is the oldest and biggest living thing on
earth. In the ordinary course of nature Its span
of life is another two thousand years. A fitting
shrine' The photograph reproduced, shows Baron
Rothschild of Brussels and Paris placing a wreath
of laurel and incense cedar.
This is as it should be. The memorles that
are cherished by the good Americans of today
should be perpetuated In drabla monuments for
the generations to come.

The hulking prize-fighter of the John

The bully is never brave. In fact
he is always a coward. Feeling sure
that his superior size will carry him
