E.C.HACKSEY. Erittor. fro. WEDNESDAY;. May 6, 1891, KEEPINOTH5GltVi:S IS 15-FRESHED. Why renew the memory of the great strife? We might simply answer, Because we cannot help it; we must remember what is very near to our hearts. The cause of our trouble is in the Crave, and through the rave our feelings must find expres sion. The true comfort of i great sorrow is in its expression There is a joy in keeping the grave refreshed in generous re memb ranee; and when we throw flowers on the graves of our fallen braves we find there is a balm in the act that goes to our very hearts. The power of nieui ory is in some respects the most ' important of our acuities The ancient said that Memory was the mother of the Muses. There is a delightful feeling of ideal ity reviving all our, generous sympathies with those who have passed away, while we are thus in the exercise of calling up their memories. This senti ment is one of the most noble in our nature., it has, moreover, a tendency to incite to the study of the highest art. OurAmeri can art was dull and languish ing for many years, but it be gan to revive from the feeling that found expression in our cemeteries. Be true, then, we say, to this sentiment; con tinue to honor the sacred shrines of the dead, and the spirit of progress will be mighty in pro portion to the ideality of our remembrance. Through the memorials of the dead we shall also learn to study and honor the majesty of great principles. Why did these men fall! Was it because they were moved merely by a great-impulse, or the spirit of party faction? N. Let us award the glory where it is due to the fallen braves. They fought for what they consider ed great principles. TOO COMMOX. Commutations of punishment are becoming too common. The; object of punishment is two- fold; it is a penalty for gui't ia-j flicted upon the criminal, and it is an example and a yarning to others. A criminal adjudgvAJ worthy of death or for imprison ment for a term of years has no claim to commutation or par don. For many causes the impression of crime fading from the public mind, ths continued appeils of friends of the crim inal for mercy, the so' ten ing of the Executive heart, or his wear iness under solicitation, the chances that a criminal server out his life term are small, and at the end of a time he is turn ed out again with the mark of the convict upon him, exclude 1 from honest employment, hard a enea in crime ana ready 4 much from necessity as from inclination to repeat his often ces. : We do not wish to irttryd upon our new Governor: hi duties and responsibilities are heavy, we think no harm can eomo from the expression of a caution on this important que tion. ''the poor ye have always with yoit," and Jt goes to work to find them out, and as far .as "possible, equalize the gifts of fortune, and aims at least to drive the gaunt shadow of want from the door of the hopless sufferer. " , Every community should feel that in. giving countenance to such an order it is countennnc ing its Guardian Angel. It should strengthen the hands and uphold the arms of thosw few, who detaching themselves from the pleasures and trivial pursuits of life, give themselves up to the charge of humanity, and the relief ot human suffer ing. - - ' .- m ' WILL SHOW TIIK M'UNTttY IN IS!2 Harrison and his family will 'hardly spend the summer, in Washington.

On. the other hand, if the railroads bo- come grinding, monopolies, dis regarding thi convenience and the rights of their patrons, they will stir up a hostile sentiment and unfriendly legislation,, and the prejudices of juries in the courts will make their pathway a hard one to travel. Mutual fairness and justice will be found the best policy for ov' different classes and interests. Sum thing to AvuUI. A little personal pique, a bit of wounded .vanity, a sudden flame of anger, often undoes the most substantial and faithful work, and nullifies the most in telligent and wise action. It is one painful thing in experience that effort is often defeated by these small, purely personal; and often momentary feelings, which are generally unintelli gent and unwise. Life 'would be freed from some of its most painful features if men always acted to each other on a basis of real justice and intelligence and left their small personal feelings and prejudice out of sight A man's work ought to be judged by itself and for itself alone and the strength of a man's position ought to rest solely upon what he is able to do And yet most of us are constantly neutraliz ing the best work of others be cause it's not dona in our way and are constantly failing to do justice to others became some small personal pre ju dices against them.
