There is o completeness about the performances of hor company that is rarely to bo found in companies devoted to light opera. Thochoius is especially to bo commended. Last week inanv porsons went two and thiee times to hear "Tho Queen's Laeo Handkerchief" merely to hear tho excellent chorus sung at the close of the first and second acts. Jeannlo "Winston herself stands without a rival on' the comic opera stage, nnd low equals to Louise Searlo can be found.

A people who would preserve their liberties cannot iceltr too ofteli to their gallant dead, A people who would hill to embalm In their heart of hearts those who fall lighting In their p.ttue aro unworthy to be called a free people. May the observance of (his day purify our hearts, make us betler citizens and better men, nnd may H strengthen and re-knlt the living ties which bind us together as one people one In peace and In war, In sunshine and in storm, now and forever, one and Inseparable. , "Nearly one fourth of a century has passed since the Inst hostile gun was II red. Kvery passing year makes more plain tho decree of the Ood of Battles that llio lost cause was Justly lost; oven those that fought us and that they fought us gal lantly nil history must ever leeord even they glory now In the sttength nnd great ness of our nationality, a nationality which they proudly share, which we know thev would willingly defend. "The tiluinphs of peace have been more woudious. than those of war. All the old scars are honied. We bnvennew nation n union of States that stands as some promontory, teaching into the sea. against which the waves of passion and prejudice may beat in vain. Surely tho time has now urilved when (ho South Carolinian and the New Knglniider can unite in the belief that gicater than South Caiolina, nnd grander than New Kugland, nre the Stars nnd Stripes lloating over the United Slntcs." The spenker did not think with Charles Sumner that all the lesitlts of tho w,ir could have been attained by debalo nnd pencetul discussion. "If history pioves anyone thing more plainly than another," no continued, "It Is that no great right oT man has ever been ncbiexed by persuasion or argument, but by foice. No such body of men ever as sembled upon the face ol tho earth as tin men who composed tho mule and llio of our volunteer army. The counigo, the endurance, the genuine heroism of our private soldier, hail in them something bordering upon the miraculous. Tl.ey weio willing to leavo the plow in llio furiow nnd go to battle, and when the need was over go backto tho plow again. Pence did not spoil them for war anil war did not spoil them for peace. "Political parties may rise and fall, but fifty millions of such people will go right along as a nation. All perils will bo safely passed, and all troubles overcome. In the final roll-call of nations may Amcilcn come forth robed In (ruth, san dalled with peace, girdled by tho stars of Union, and crowned by tho diadem or Freedom. May succeeding commemora tions of this day find those who shall come after us a united, a free, and a happy people; n confederation of republics, ad vancing in numbers, in knowledge and in all Christian virtues, In a land signally blest of Heaven; a land where no heail wears a crown, anil no arm wields a sceptre." At the Soldiers' Home. At the Soldiers' Home Cemetery Mr. J, II.

Dr. Leonard wcie suitable to tho occasion, fervid nnd earnest, and the work of deco rating was carried on in tho most Impres sive manner by tho old soldiers and others. Colonel Joyco's poem resembled tho gen eral inn ot Ills pioductions in merit. It opcned'wlth the following verses: Wo celebrate nnd dedicate This day ot blooming llowcrs To those who fell for yonder Hag, That stairy Hag of ours Defying human powers, Wheio'er wo roam this Soldiers' Homo Can noer be forgot. While nlrs shall blow from Mexico To cheer our happy lot And sing of (Jcneral Scott. 1'iom sun to sun, whilo ages run, AVo'U sound In song nnd story Tho rccoul of theso noble men, Adown the aisle of glory, Who fought on Ik-Ids so gory. Through eighteen sub.-.cquont vcracs tho Colonel reviews tlie darkness oT the past and tho brightness of tho present and future, and weaves his rythmical tributo to the soldiers of tho late war. hi:. unnuAitivr's oration'. Mr. Kdwaid Sayro Gorhardt of Danville, Pa., whodcllvcred the oration, wasthoora tor at Gettysjmrg last year. He is a gentlo man of medium height and very pleasing personality. His oration conformed to his personal characteristics. Hosaid, after paying a tributo to tho dead, that they will live ns long as tbero is daylight fn tho world. He said that wo owe to tho Union soldiers the debt pf eternal gratitude. The great work of reuniting tho nation wus sketched by tho orator In language graphic nnd truthful. "Unity is our normal condition. For this our ancestors struggled as they struggled for their inde pendence: for this thoy contended lu legis lative halls as they contended on tho field of battle; for this tho Union soldier fought in a later contest of war; for this, we too, must battle in a conquest of peace." The pre-ent grandeur ot our Nation afforded him a subject for most in tercsting talk. Ho also spoke most eruditely of our future as a nation. His remarks on that subject wore character ized by good t-onsQ and a thorough knowl edge of what was going on. Another sub ject of hl.s discourse treated of "Tho Ac cumulation of lte.-orved National Power." This subject was sketched at length and very forcibly, as was also tho leaning tendency In tho opposito direction. Anothcrsubjeetconstltutinganoxccllent essny was the fact that tho present genera tion will never reap tho fruits of its labors, "Biien iickio arguments as ineso carry their own fallacies with them; for to oboy such injunctions as these Is to at ouco put an end to all human achlovnments una to all patriotic duty. Had such ungenerous impulses as theso controlled tho heroio ef forts of tho Union soldiers struggling on tho Held of bnttlo a grateful people would not thus as.-cuibloT.o-day to decorato tho graves of Its martyred dead." "And well might we, my countrymen, as wo stand here to-day, in tho midst of peace and prosperity, the glorious results of another s labor, exclaim; 'Would that tho heroes of tho revolution could for an Instant rise, up from their forgottou graves to behold tho greatness of their peoplol Would that rack one of tho kindred spirits of yonder heights of Arlington could now burst tho coromeuts of their honored glares to behold tho splendor of this Nation's Capital, which they once so nobly fought to savo!'" The orator concluded with n moU eu!o gistic reference to tho memory of tho Union soldiers, living and dead. Tho oration of Mr. florhardt was im piohslvcly dollvcrod and listened to with piofound attention. At Onl III11 Conintery, At Oak Illll Cemetery tho (lowers cou tributid by tlie school children of George town were distributed among the soldiers' giaves by decoration committees from the Grand Army nnd Sons of Vcferans, as sisted by private individual and lot holders.
