"My comrades and fellow-citizens: I rr
epond to you l call with special cmti.ln'ioa.
Nothing gives mo prcater pleasure tint tc

My friendship grows strouuer and dc.fr ,xi
the years recede and the o.d guard, one lv one,
is called home. Your prepuce- revives tun 113
patriotic memories; it recalls many stirring
and glorious events. Bow vividly they rise
before us, and wbat an inspiration for the
right they always arc. To have been a faithful
soldier ot the Union is no less a source of joy
in your advancing years and infirmities than
a precious Iccucy for family and friends. It
blesses he who gives, and enriches ho who ic
coivcs. It is a recoid of patriotism and service
in the severest trials of our couutry. Ap
plause. "We all know something of what that war
meant and wiiat it cost; what sacrifice it ex
acted, and for what u holy cause the sacrifico
was freoly given. Treasuro illimitable, sufl'or
ing indescribable, aud death beyond previous
roeord or comparison. By far tho larger num
ber of our old comiadus ol the Grand Army are
sleoniug 111 'their silent tents' beyond the
river, but though death has decimated our ranks
it is a consoling reflection that more than a
million of our comrades still survive. It is a
gratifying thought that those who served their
country best in war have always boon among
our best and truest citizons in peace
"It is in tho living present, bonover, and its
duties and responsibilities that every old sol
dier is now as always most deeply interested.
Applause. Each now engagement of tho war
brought its own new trials and perils to face
and bravely overcome. The devotion to disci
pline and duty which distinguished them then
lias kept tho old soldiers true and steady ever
unco. Applause. They havo not faltered
aud will not falter now. There has been no
time since they laid down their arms when wo
had greater need for patriotic men than now,
and tho response to tho crisis of tho hour will
come from all sections of our common couutry.
Great applause.
"Wo have reached a point in oar history
when all men who love their country must
unite to defeat by their ballots the forces which
bow assault the conutij'a honor. Tho war has
been over 32 years, and as 11 result we havo a
reunited couutry, a "Union stronger aud freer,
a civilization higher and nobler, a freedom
brighter and more enduring, nd a flag dearer
and more sacred than ever before, and all of
.bem safe from any onemy because tbo men
who a third of a century ago fought in deadly
conflict unite in their masterful might to op
joo any enemy who would assail our freedom,
tr Union, or flng. Cheers.
"Tho struggle which is upon us, Involving
National good faith aud honor, will enlist their
milted and earnest services until those who
are arrayed upaiust tbo public faith Bhall be
routed and dispersed. Tho bitterness of the
war belongE to the past. Its glories are the
common heritage of us all. What was won in
that great coufiict belongs just as sacredly to
those who lost as to those who triumphed.
"You meet to-day not as soldiers, but as
citizens interested new in maintaining tho
credit of the country you served so well and in
restoring prosperity and better tines to our
goodly heritage. The future is tho sicred trust
of us all, Fouth as well as North. Honesty,
like patriotism, can neither be bounded by
State nor sectional lines. Financial dishonor
is the threatened danger now, aud good men
will obliterate old lines of party in a united
eflort to uphold American honor.
"This you have always done, and you must
strive to kep tha Union worthy of the bravo
mon who sacrificed and died for it.
''J will be glad, my comrades, to meet you
M personally." Loud cheering.

MASSACHUSETTS' GIFT.
Presentation of "Tictory" Will Take Place
When the Battleship Visits Boston.
When tho battleship Massachusetts visits
Boston in August tho presentation of tho work
of art, "Victory," tbo gilt of tho Stato of Mas
sachusetts, will tako place. Tho work has been
produced by Artist Bela L. Pratt, in accordance
wim a bill passed by the Massachusetts Legis
lature. The full-size fignro of "Victory" as it now
stands is all ready for the transor of the out
lines to the sand mould, and finally to tho en
during bronze. The picturo hero presented
gives the work of art in its perfection.
The model of tho artist is a Boston lady.
Tho figuro is about five feet eight inches in
bight, and when placed against tho turret of
tho battleship tho top will bUmd about 10 feet
high. Tho artist was undor tbo restrictions of
constructing a figuro to fit a flat surface. This
is why tho wingB aro somewhat tnoro forwaid
than would seem aproposing of tho drapery,
especially in tho lower portion, to avoid flatness
or stiffness.
Tho design is a bold and striking one, tho
couuteuauco and gonoral port suggesting tho
dignity and resolution which should be in keep
ing with au idealization of "Victory." Tho
helmet, breast-plate aud hip-plate, as well as
the sword, which she carries horizontally, indi
cate tho stern purposes of the war, while tho
wings idealize spcod. Tho sword, wiiich is
much lika a Cuban machete, bears ou its bido
tho wofd "Victory." It origiually boro tho
following words, which the artist's second
thought transferred to tho base: "By duty
done is honor won." There is also the name of
the donor tho Commonwealth of Massachu
setts. Its position, on the turret between portholes,
from which two powerful guns will project, is
suggestive, and, in a sense, may bo rcgaidcd as
bearing analogy to tho old-fashioned figure-
Bas Reiief of "Victory" fob
head. Jn this respect it will bo unique among
the objects of adornment and utility on our
battleships.

discourager of affec
tion, or rather of the
demonstration of af
fection. It would probably be more so if
people only realized just what bad breath
means. Bad breath is one of the symptoms
of coiibtipalion. Some of the other symp
toms are tour stomach, loss of appetite,
sick and bilious headache, dizziness, heart
burn and distress after eating-. These things
mean indigestion. They lead to dyspepsia
and worse things. They all start with con
stipation, and constipation is inexcusable
because it can be cuied cured easily,
quickly and permanently, by the use of Dr.
Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. They are a per
fect remedy for this most common of all
troubles. They give to nature just the little
help that she needs. They are very mild in
their action, and act without any violence
whatever. In this, they aie different from
mauy preparations offered for a similar pur
pose. Sometimes the remedy is worse than
the disease, Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets
arc mild, but they are infallibly efficient.
They do the work which they arc intended
to do, -without deranging the system in any
way. They not only give immediate relief,
but the benefit derived from them is per
manent. You can stop taking them by
and by and there is no danger that you
will become a slave to their use. The drug
rjist who tries to sell you something elsa
"'just as good," cither does not know what
be is talking about, or he makes mora
money on the other thing. If you care
more for his prosperity than you do for
your own health, take the other thing. If
you value your health, insist on having Dr.
Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. A free sample,
of from 4 to 7 doses, will be sent to any
address.

LADIES OF THE G.A.R.
Corresponding Secretary Adolla Wado Tells
of Kaunas Work.
Editor National Tkibune: As yonr
papor is read in so many soldiers' homes, I
think a few lines rogarding tho G.A.R. Ladies
of Kansas will bo of iutoro3t to somo of your
readers. I will attempt to givo you a few
itoms. Our Stato Convontion was hold in
April at tho sarno timo and placo a3 tho G.A.R,
W.R.C., and kindred organizations. Pleasant
grcotiug3 and courtesies woro freely exchanged,
and tho bitter opposition of tho past seems to
havo died out.
Tho G.A.R. wcro mo3t cordial, and a largo
number of comrades took our obligation arid
becamo honorary members Among these woro
Past Commanders and othor officers. Mother
Bickerdyko is now a membor of our Order.
Our nowly-olectcd President, Emma Wall, is
tho right woman in tho right place. Sho has
always been an enthusiastic worker for tho
best interests of our organization, and her elec
tion gives goucral satisfaction. Sho has been
tho recipiont of many congratulatory letters,
and our Order will move forward under her
administration.
Tho Department Secretary writes that re
ports show an iucrcaso in numbers and interest
during tho last quarter. Sister Wall visited
tho Soldiers' Homo at Leavenworth, Momorial
Sunday, and dolivorcd an address to tbo old
votorans, which was well received and highly
appreciated by them. She was given a stand
ing invitation to spoak in tho Homo Church,
and was most cordially received by Gov. Smith
and wife, and everything dono to mako hor
stay pleasant. Sister Wall has no sympathy
with tho attacks boiug mado on Gov. Smith,
and says as far as she could learn his adminis
tration lis heartily indorsed by tho peoplo of
Leavenworth.
An appeal was made by a veteran's wife to
the Department for $50, that sho might tako
treatment at tho hospital. Sho is tho mother
of thrco childron and tho wife of a sick soldier.
Tho appeal was sent out, and generous response
camo to gladdon tho heart of this afflicted
woman, who is now in Chri3t Hospital in
Topcka.
Tho G.A.R. of Kansas and its kindred so
ciotios aro looking forward to tho Stato Ro
union, to be held in Topcka in September.
This promises to bo a most interesting timo.
The various committees are hard at work, aud
ovory effort is being made for a grand success.
Ono foaturo will bo a flower parade, which will
bo in chargo of tho ladies, aud tho members
of Circle aud Corps aro taking a prominent
part in this work. Tho most attractive featuro
will bo tho address of Maj. McKinley, which
was promised in tho Spring. Adelia Hunt

RIPANS TABUL
For a neighbor, who lived out by him In the country, told his own story,
as follows : ' Evcrsincc I was in the army, where I contracted indigestion
and dyspepsia from eating hard tack and sow belly, I have suffered much
from those and kindred ailments. A son of mine told me, while home on
a visit over a year ago, to get some Ripans Tabules and take them. I
did, and in a very short time I was benefited. I have felt better, ate
more and relished it better than at any time since the war, and am doing
more work now than I ever expected to do again. I tell you they ire the

them when a fellow complains about his stomach hurting him."
