THE HONORED DEAD
One day out of every year is set
aside in many of the cities of the
United States when patriotic citizens
assemble and pay their respects to
those of the armies of the North and
tjhe South who fought and died to
make this nation what it is today.
No, mors sacred duty of the people of
this nation; no more beautiful and
patriotic custom; no more outward
manifestation of the healing of the
heart wounds and the existence of
brotherly ties, is found, than Hi the
observance of Decoration Day.
,. Persons who have never observed
this day can not realize the great
feeling of love for humanity which the
Simple, but sacred rites of Decora
tion Day arouse. They have failed to
feel the thrill of patriotic impulse
wjhich courses throughout the veins.
They do not know what it is to see
& Ippg line of veterans and school chil
dren carrying flowers and Hags; inar
hals of the day riding spirited horses;
carriages laden with flowers; accom
panied by the shrill martial music of
the fife and drum wending its sol
emn way to the cemetery. They do
not know; they cannot feel; the in
tense enthusiasm and the impulsive
patriotism which Is inspired when the
gray and feeble veterans form into a
tottering line and fire the yearly sa
lute over the grave of the nation's
dead. They know not the love for
mankind which surges in the hearts
pt the truly patriotic as they gaze
upon the beflowered mounds of earth;
and tarn from them to the totter
ing ranks of those living veterans,
who fought to make a nation. Could
there, be greater honor than to pay
respects to such as these?
Business cares, wealth and strife
have no cause to- exist here. The ob
servance of the day is a sacred duty of
every. American. It is the outward
manifestation of brotherly affection
which binds this nation together.
Such a tribute Is or minor importance
$o what such men have done for the
nation. Out of the respect which we
owe to these remnants of the armies
that fought to make this a nation,
out of the strong patriotic impulse
which every American should feel, the
interest in the observance of this day
should never be allowed to wantv
Americans cannot show greater appre
ciation of the efforts of the armies of
.'61 and 'G2 than to display each year
even this humble recognition of the
great service that has been rendered
to the nation by those honored dead.

Lee Shippey writes, in part, in the
"Gatherings of editors are always in
teresting. Xo argument is to be here
advanced to prove that statement. It
is made simply as an introductory ex
cuse for writing what follows.
"A notable and unique gathering of
editors was in u.t University of Mis
souri last week, the first annual Ed
itors' Week at that institution. All
kinds of editors were there, big men
and little men from big publications
and little publications, not respectively
in all cases. So of course there was
a good deal doing and more saying.
"Twinkly Will Irwin, of Collier's
Weekly was there. Yes, 'Twinkly' is
intended. When Will Irwin tells a
funny story and he is unbeatable at
telling them his eyes twinkle, his
glasses twinkle, his cheeks twinkle
and even his hair twinkles. I can
swear to this for I watched his hair
particularly while he told 'em at Dana
House one night The light fell full
on it and two or three times it pos
itively winked. Yes, of course this
reads nonsensically. Hut the stories
were bully. And Irwin himself well,
everybody who met him just naturally
wanted to steai the clean, handsome
witty, brilliant, clear-minded, well
poised, polished, whole-souled, demo
cratic good fellow.
Saw Improvement Everywhere.
After describing Editors' Week as
the "most noted journalistic event in '
the state." J. W. S. Dillon writes in
the Grant City Star, in part: "Besides
the interesting and edifying hours I
spent in the lecture room of the School
of Journalism and at the evening fetes
and entertainments, the visit to the
beautiful r.nd cultured city of Colum
bia, the Athens of Missouri, was a
source of much pleasure. We noted
the material improvements in streets,
walks, and pavements and the rigid
growth of the city, as well as the im
provements in the University quad
rangle. State Agricultural farm. Hor
ticultural farm, etc. Perhaps few
places are quite as close to ones hreart
as his alma mater; the univrMty is the
alma mater of the editor and the Chris- i
tian College, also of Columbia, is the t
alma mater of the editor's wife.
rrof. iavidson took us out ;o the J
State Agriculture Farm where we ?ai I
the new agricultural building, rue
dean's new residence, the dairy build- j
ing, the dairy barn, the machinery hall
and the feeding barns and silos. In
the dairy barn we saw Chief Josephine ;
in her second milking of the day; she j
holds the world's record for quantity
of milk for four months and i. beins i
tested for the year's record; she is !
milked four times a day and give-; from
91 to 104 pounds, or abotit 12 gallons of '
milk per day. In the agricultural '
building we saw the three siler tro-j

"Miss Gladys Aliwood, who will grad

the university in 1011 and who was
one of the successful teachers in the
Grant City school in 1907-0, invited
us to dine with her at Head Hal:, the-
university young women's hall of .10
members, chaperoned" by Miss John
ston, assistant professor of Latin. We
were very much impressed with the
hall, the attractive young women, and
the gone! fellowship among them. Ber
tween the courses served at dinner
they sang, 'Mid the Hills of Old Mis
souri,' Germany Land,' 'Old Missouri.'
all rising in honor of 'Old Missouri,'
the university song.
"When editors meet there is a'v.-pys
something saying and often the some
thing proves to be a good story. Here
is one of Will Irwin's:
"A good professor of exemplary hab
its attended a dinner party one night
and endeavored to keep up with the
wine list. There being several courses.
several kinds of wine were served and
it was just after he sipped some heavy,
heady old port that the professor re
alized that ho had taken too much.
His first thought was that he must hide
his deep disgrace. As soon as dinner
was over ho slipped away into the
library where ho resolved to stay until
able to navigate. Hardly had he got
ten there when bis hostess entered car
rying her twin-babies, which she was
going to show the company. Fully
realizing his condition the poor pro
fessor staggered to his feet, gazed ad
miringly at the twins and exclaimed
" 'What a beautiful child!' "
"All the Worth county students are
building a solid foundation at the uni
versity for success in whatever voli
tion they may choose. In the brief
time remaining we visited the Chris
tian College, which is the alma mater
of Mrs. Dillon, where we had the on
portunity to see SIT.V'OO worth of iv
cent improvements made through the
able management or the president,
Mrs. St. Clair, who is also planning a
new $30,000 chapel and a new S20.0fn
Carnegie library. Together with' our
host of the evening, several other
Worth county students met us at the
Gordon and saw us off on the train."

Says Education Is Chief Asset.
There are a few people in every com
munity wno oppose Higher Education.
They aro not even very friendly to the
High School movement and they
strongly oppose the College and the
Universitv. Take for granted they are
honest in their expressed opinion, it is
evident they are laboring under false
impressions or they deliberately de
nounce without proper investigation.
The progress of die race depends upon
a more thorough knowledge of things
and a deeper insight into the cardinal
principles of true advancement. Us
ually, the unlettered and the weak
oppose honest educational advance
ment and they are the people who need
such advantages most. The man who
opposes Higher Education is an ene
my to progress, a menace to society
and a detriment to the community.
Honest, legitimate, thorough education
is the chier asset of the race. It is
better than chatties or gold. Lamar
