Something of If.s Origin and a
Prophecy as to Its Future.
By MAJ. GEN. FRED. D. GRANT
HE .Idea of this beautiful eti9.
torn Was first suggested and
mado a great national holiday
bv den. John A. Logan. Hu
wbb a thoughtful man, swayed by sen
llment of tho highest order, and a
close student of tho classics. He
read much and frequently referred to
historic episodes In his speeches.
By nature den. Logan was Inclined
to be heroic, and so after the war,
after reading much about the beauti
ful customs of tho ancient Greeks lu
bonoilng their dend heroes with cere
monies and flowers at annual fes
tivals, It came to htm lu n moment of
Inspiration that It would be a patilot
tc nnd popular thing to likewise honor
the dead soldiers of our own country
In a similar way. He held that to
decorate the soldiers' graves onco a
year In tlto month of May with Its
flowers and blooming splendor would
awaken new sentiments of loyalty and
regard for the government among the
It was a fact, as he well knew,
that nearly every household had lost
one or more members or relatives or
dear friends. Gen. Logan's insplra-
tfon awoke a response In every heart
and his movement was soon organized
Grand Army posts were established
! In every section of tho country. All
. .,.. ... ...
soldiers with flowers on tho day ap
pointed would give the nation new
life and be welcomed by all tho peo
ple. But this Is not all. Tho religious
sentiment at the bottom of the Idea
of honoilng tho dead soldiers and
perpetuating the memory of their he
roic deeds mude the day something
higher and nobler than anything
known In the days of tho Greeks.
Thus It cumo about that Memorial
Day became the greutest of all our
American hollduys. It was a day for
the bereaved to commune at the
tombs of their honored dead.
For many years, as we all know,
the custom was an event the most
beautiful, pathetic and sacred of our
holidays but later on, as the ranks of
the Burvlvors grow thinner and the
families who had contrlbutctd so lriany
lives to the war passed away, the day
became moro like other holidays a
day moro noted for military parade,
a day for games and picnics and hav
ing u good time generally, until now
tho genoral' public are coming to look
on Memorial day as an ordinary na
tional holiday, like Washington's
Birthday or the Fourth of July.
Had It not been for the deep reli
gious sentiment, with prayers and
church services held in honor of the
soldiers, Memorial, day would from
the beglnulng In all probability have
boon attended with the noise and dis
play of tho Fourth of July. Fortu
nately this religious sentiment has
mudo the peoplo moro thoughtful,
and instead of noise and gun ilrlng we
have gone in for moro cmiet recrea
tioncountry picnics making the
day more like a festival than a day
of mere noise and parade,
I think It Is a beautiful Idea, this
decorating the giaves of those who
sacrificed their Uvea In the tremen
dous days of tho war and purely out
of patriotic devotion, and It Is a pity
Indeed thatvputrita sentiment Is Brad-iially.-jGKWar.fl

Why troop the children from the fields
with flowers fresh and gay ?
Isee the -vet'rans gather in their buttoned
coats of blue.
With here and there an empty slte'he to
prove the tuearer true;
1 hear them talk of battles in their youth
time long ago.
Where side ov side they stood and met the
onslaughts of the foe ;
And notu the "boice is silent, and each
soldier bows his head.
For well they know this sacred day Colum-
ma crowns tier aeaa.
77ie flag half-mast Is flying and the air
is filled with praise
Of those who by the Nation stood through
out her trying days.
When strode the Cod of Battles in his fury
o'er the land.
And crimson grew Potomac's tide and red
the Rio Grande;
When the cannon tore the Cedars in the
green vales of the South,
Where now the blue-bird builds her nest
deep in the mortar's mouth;
But ah I the snowy wings of Peace above
those fields are spread.
And Columbia, like a mother, comes to
crown her gallant dead.
"" ru -n
No more I hear the rumble of the battle's
Jhi'be to part the flowers fair to find the
wounds of war;
I hear a robin singing where the colonel
And a butterfly is hov'ring where the
Tlie bugle Is no longer heard on fields we
love to name.
And the roses bloom in beauty in the sacred
camps of Fame,
And down the street a-marchlng, with
Old Glory at their head.
Come the tet'rans, for Columbia bids them
all salute her dead.
Sleep on, 0 wearers of the blue J the meed
of praise you've won.
Sleep on the long, long summer thro' In
shadow and in sun ;
The sweetest bloom that Nature yields
lies on the soldier's breast,
And nevermore war's clarion notes shall
break your peaceful rest ;
The battle echoes -vanish like a distant
cannon 's boom,
Behold I Columbia gently lays a wreath
upon a tomh,
"My children I Peace be with youl" speaks
sht low with drooping head,
Tlien she kisses all the roses she has laid
upon her dead.
CIVIL WAR FIGURES.
Statistics of the Army That Put Down
The enlistments In tho union army
during the civil war reached the
enormous total of U.S'JS.U'M. It is not
possible to know exactly how many

states failed to keep a reliable tecord
of the number of men furnished to
the service, nnd such statistics as are
to be had aro Incomplete. It is esti
