I ssv, everywhere in
if spirt of the occa
rembtes at -the an
Service of the Elks'
: i.,Iil ' tie ldgae No. 383, yester
a .t . A cro.d that filled
a dl.,lum of the temple to its
ev a tvidence of the interest
-* services held each year
tth.iN.t "to keep fresh the memory
th b* 4de 'ted brothers. The hall
as btautifully decorated in the lodge
oore of purple and white. The Bijou
Srchestra assisted in the musical pro
.tj and the vocal numbers by Miss
:thel Hughes, E. Rea Cousens and
WillIam Amundson were delightfully
:;endered. -The Elks' quartet sang and
the rendition of "Nearer. My God, to
Thee" during the roll call of the ab
sent 'brothers when the lodge of sor
row was opened by Exalted Ruler Gil
bert Heyfron, made this part of the
:-eremony especially impressive. Rev.
H. S. Gatley, chaplain of the lodge,
pronounced the invocation and bene
diction. -
The feature of the program was the
memorial address by Washington J.
McCormick of this city. The thoughts
he presented are bathed in nobleness,
comfort and inspiration. Mr. McCor
mick spoke with unusual eloquence
yesterday. His address was as fol
l.ows:
Memorial Address.
It is repeated in history that one of
the soldiers of old France had lost his
life in action. So imbued with this
man of arms with all the knightly
qualities of ancient chivalry that he
had proved a model for the warriors
of his generation. When his regiment
was drawn up annually for its review
and the roll of oficers called, each
hnswered' to his name. But when the
name of this gallant gentleman of the
ancient regime was pronounced there
came a deep silence. Suddenly a sol
dier stepped from the ranks, saluted
and answered: "Dead on the field of
honor."
So it is with us. As the keeper of
the rolls annually calls out, on the first
Sunday of each December, the names
of those of our ranks who have fallen
-for each man is a soldier in life's
battle-there comes no answering,
"'Here." Yet in the heart of every Elk
within sound of the call, as the sub
sequent silence ensues, there is re
peated that sternly tender sentiment,
"Dead on the field of honor."
These fallen comrades of ours are
gradualy becoming a legion. But to
our backward eyes there is no priority
in that lost legion. We know that
yesterday they were, but today they
answer not to their names. Some few
in the number were eminent in their
day and generation, exemplars of civic
and social accomplishment; and some
few, as the world regards it, were
among the obscurest of mankind. But
whether one die like a Lazarus at the
gate, like an Alexander at the feast,
or like a Caesar in the senate- house,
the silent democracy of the dead wel
comes him, healed of his wound, risen
from his -banquet, and stripped of his
rank. There they stand in that im
mortal commonwealth, without world
ly profit or honor, leaving naught
above the earth but a rustling of the
leaves of memory which we solemnly
perpetuate in this, "the winter of our
discontent.'
Their Virtues.
However views may differ as to
their fate and our present relation
ship to them, we may, with all the
sanction of antiquity and the approval
of human impulse, do honor to their
name. And so "The faults of our
brothers we write upon the sand
their virtues upon the tablets of love
and memory." We write their faults
upon the sand where the great ocean I
of forgetfulness may, at flow of the
tide, obscure the record; but that
great ocean can'never erase the cata
logue of their virtues chisled on a
monument, as the Latin poet ex
presses it, "- - aere perennius,
regalique situ pyramidum altius."
"More lasting than bronze, and higher
than the royal station of the pyramids.
which neither the biting rain of the
sky nor the powerless north wind can
level, nor succession of years, nor the
flight of time." For as we, the living
members of the Benevolent and Pro
tective Order of Elks, gather in our
temples and devote a memorial hour
to reflection and prayer, and as each
memorial orator voices his inadequate
sentences, we cast a granite stone at
the foot of our graven monument to
the dead that shall buffet the waves
of oblivion so long as our order shall
be recruited from the generations of
melL
Charity.
Faults our departed brothers had,
for like us they were mortal: but
since "God made man a little lower
than the angels," they had virtues that
were angelic. They practiced, each in
his own measure, chariey. Not always
that outstanding charity which is seen
of all men and is its own reward; but
charity by stealth, by indirection and
impulse, so that often their right hand
knew not what their left hand accom
plished. Many instances were theirs,
as we recall the record, of the charity
of bearing and forbearing, of daily
ac-ts of benevolence to family, relative
and friend-for they could not remain
loyal members of this order and not
exatilt ltp-.cardinal attribute to which
every Elk owes alegiance.

instances wherein our order has
clothed the naked, fed the hungry,
given drink to the thirsty, visited the
sick, and buried the dead? But their
days were further punctuated with
brotherly love not only to the members
of our fellowanip, but to many here
present outside of our fold whose only
testimony is an added heart-beat.
Fidelity.
They practiced the great virtue of
fidelity: for their faithfulness as men
and loyal Elks is attested in that their
names are inscribed upon our rolls
forever. In such wise may man pro
long his earthly life and by fidelity
to his obligations bind those who fol
low him in perpetual fealty to his
name.
Yet with virtues like these let us
charitably imagine that they did nbt
meet their Maker with the prayer of
the Pharisee upon their lips, "God, I
thank Thee that I am not as other
men are," but rather with the words
of the poor publican, "God be merciful
to me, a sinner."
The Hereafter.
Who is so venturesom'e in this day
and age as to assert that there is no
hereafter? Belief in a hereafter has
ever been one of the distinguishing
features of all peoples in all ages. The
Greek weaved poetry about his Olym
pus and his Avernus. The Latin wrote
of his Styx and his Plutonian shades.
The Indian, as he returned from the
chase, dreamed of the Happy Hunting
Ground. The Buddhist and Moham
medan console themselves, the one
with Nirvana-that peaceful absence
of all activity-the other with his
graduated Paradise. The Christian
and the Jew look fondly to Heaven,
that place of refuge where the prodi
gal son may at last return to his
Father's house. If universal belief can
lead to a conclusion then truly is there
life and being beyond the grave.
And who can assert that our broth
ers have passed to a land "from whose
bourne no traveler returns?" Within
the past month the greatest scientist
Iof England has declared his solemn
belief, based upon scientific grounds,
that departed souls may and do com
municate with those on earth. We
read in Holy Writ that the Prophet
Jeremias, in company with the High
Priest Onias, appeared unto Judab
Machabeus. And in the Book of Kings
we read that the Prophet Samuel ap
I peared unto the witch of Endor. St.
Matthew writes that at the crucifix
lion of him whom the Christians call
the Messiah:"
"Behold, the vail of the temple was
rent in twain from the top to the bot
tom; and the earth did quake and the
rocks rent;
"And the graves were opened; and
many bodies of the saints which slept
arose,
"And came out of the graves after
His resurrection, and went into the
Holy City, and appeared unto many."
And in that sublime passage of the
transfiguration he records:
"And after six days Jesus taketh
Peter, James, and John his brother,
and bringeth them up into a high
mountain apart,
"And was transfigured before them:
and his face did shine as the sun, and
his raiment was white as the light.
"And -behold, there appeared unto
them Mpses and Elias talking with
him." He who asserts that no trav
eler has returned from the bourne of
that undiscovered country may indeed
speak for himself-but his limited ex
perience cannot support a universal
negative. To say "I have not seen
the happening." and again, "The hap
pening has not occurred," are two dis
tinct propositions, the one in. no wise
following or depending upon the other.
The chronicles of one age are the fa
ble of that remotely succeeding..but
minds greater than ours have found
solace in those things that furnish the
subject of our unbelief. And would
t we not in this modern age, an age that
more than any other has witnessed
the rifling of nature's ibeerets, explain
away on the basis tof hallucination
any, manifestation to our mortal- eye
-of evidences 'of immunrtality? t. LuIke
I asms up our situation t. the pa'iale)
of Dives and Lazarus, one of the finest
paosiL*es in aniy literatutre: .
'"And it came to pass that the beg
gat .ied, and was ckrried by the alh
geis finto Abraham's bosom; and the
i-inla alntn 'also 'died and waAs burled;
a "Atnd in hell he lifted up his eyes,
being in torments, and ',eeth Abiaham
afa off, and Lazarus in hl b'osom. '
"And he cried and said, 'Father
Abraham, have mercy rn me, and send
taiarus, that he may dip the tip qf'
his finger in water, ahd cool my
tongue: for I am tormented in this
flaine.'
"But Abraham said: 'Son, remem
ber that thou in 'hy lifetime re
ceivdst thy good things, and liiewise
Lazarus evil things; bitt"niOW' bhe ib;
comforted, and thou. are tormented.'
" ibilhg 4 all this, between up
a!i.i yiU theIe ~is a great gulf fixed;
so thathlty that Would pass froth
hence tb you ednnot; neither can they
pals to Fs, that would come from.
thence.' A
~Then he ~yd: 'I praythee there.
foie, -ather, that thou wouldst send
h~n to my father's louse:
P"'For I have five, brethren; that
they ,ina tgtiy unto theni, :lest they
also ,otne *rit~ this place Ofi torment.'
"Abraham slkith to him: 'They.have
Moses and the prophets; let them hear
them.'
"And he said: 'Nay, Father Abra
ham; but if one went unto them from
the dead they will repent.'
"And he said unto him: 'If they
hear not Moses and the prophets
neither will they be persuaded, though
one rose from the dead.'
The dead have had all there was of
mortality-they have now put on im
mortality as a garment in that -far
country where the king is no more ex
alted than the beggar, and the beggar
the equal of the mighu,est earthly
king. Who, then, would shun an ob-:
scure grave? The rays that penetrate
the vault of Westminster Abbey and
Illumine the sarcophagi of peers,
princes and potentates, are glorious
only in the eye of the beholder-they
are neither welcome' hor unwelcome to
the clay that slumbers there, and they
shine alike on potter's field. In a gen
eral sense,
"The hills
Rock-ribbed and ancient 'as the sun;
the vales
Stretching in pensive quiethess be
tween;
The venerable woods; rivers that
move
In majesty, and the complaining
brooks
That make the meadows green-and
poured round all
Old ocean's gray and melancholy
waste
Are but the solemn decorations all
Of the great tomb of man."
No Abiding City
One fact Is constantly borne in upon
us: this world is no abiding city. But
though nothing is more certain than
death, nothing is more uncertain than
the time of death, and each m,.uch'
await his individual sumrmons. Yet
does it not seem remarkable that mani
should constantly be iriventing. ieansl
to hasten his own end? 'he 'orlid
is appalled today at the 'prospect of
Vast armies-who, at best, in time of'
pkace,- are but earthly tenants of an
hour-struggling to conquer a few
acres o4 hostile soil, as though they
did not already possess sufficient room
to die in. We- struggle and strive
among ourselves for the wodld's
prizes, often employing a cunning and
peal that would be unjustifiable,
though we were to inhabit this globe
forever. And what is the net result?
A few feet of common soil between
us and the moon, so that our moulder
ing ashes may not offend the senses
of those who ushered us to the grave.
All Die
Man sees all things die around him.
The bud and the blossom die. The
loaf and the tree die. The birds of
leaf and the tree die. The birds of
creatures of the forest and the field
and the desert; alike they die. Man
in this respect is like them, and we
see and feel and know within our
selves as did our dying brothers, that
of a truth we die daily. The simplest
and most whimsical instances furnish
us with death's simile. On listening
to an imprisoned chanticleer singing
his nocturne to the tardy moon I my
self was once moved to pen these
lines:
And canst thou sing, O moon-struck
chanticleer,
With gladsome voice the day's ap
proaching birth?
Did Dian's eye wink truly, this thy
birth
Would vanish straight, as fades a
wind-blown tear,
Or does she misinterpret for thy cheer
The butcher's sentence, who, with
bloody girth,
Shall cleave thy head from trunk,
whilst Mother Earth
Drinks back thy blood when Phoebus
doth appear. *
Yet shili I thee a nobler motive
give
Than ignorance, C herald of thy clan:
Dost thou not typify e'en all that
live
Birds of the air, fish, beast, and mor
tal man?
For do we not, like thee, beneath thy
screen,
Crowing awhile, wait Nature's guil
lotine?
Life.
But all things, too, are quickening,
pulsing, and spring.lg into life around
us-outt of darknesg the light, a'u of
death life ainr; While oaatio and

her of. cattle in.the state will increase
with increaded settlement. The gen
eral belie.t of the bet' informed per
sons on the subject is that the dry
farmers must sooner or later begin to
raise livestock and when this condi
tion comes to be general tle number
of cattle in the state will probably be
several times the number it now sup
ports.
.The sheep industry has not yet ad
juated itself to the settlement of the
country, and the curve will continue
to go down until the dry farmers be
gin to run a few head of sheep on
each of their farms. When this titie
comes the sheep curve will again 'go
up, but just to what extent' is entirely
problematical.
