The presentation of the flag- to the trustees for the No. 1 school house by the Im-iroved Order of Red Men and the Junior Order I'nlted American Me chanics, took place at Peckvllle Wed nesday afternoon. The teachers of the school. Misses Bertha O. Williams. Orle Williams, Emu Curtis and Lillian Hicks, met the occasion with well pre pared arrangements and a programme which their pupils performed In an ef llclent manner after which the Kev. 8. C. Simpkins in an address befitting the occasion, presented the directors with the Hag in behalf of the aforesaid so cieties. Air." Simpkins said In part: KKV. SIMPKINS' ADDRESS. It Is a pleasant occasion that calls us together this afternoon. We mett lo pre sent to this school the flag of our I'niun. This is a tittlnx thing to do; for. surely, our children should be tautiht from the lirst to recognize the flag of our conirtum country; to know what it means, iid what Is Its history. We hope this beauti ful school building, which has been erect ed for the education of our children, may be for many years a place from which may go out successive generations of schools. Well grounded, though young, thus limy be in the kuowiedge of the char acter ami extent the history and djstlny of 'this maKiiiliont country, which thus will Inherit, and of which the Slur Span gled Manner is the beautiful and aporo priate symbol. The youngest of these children know something of how Christo pher Columbus In HW sailed over the then unknown sea to found, as he thought, a new empire for Spain on the other sldo of the globe; how he braved the waves of the tempestuous ocean, nnd planted the cross on San Salvador after many trials and hardships, and gave a new world to civilization and a new hemisphere to the globe. It Is eminently appropriate thut we should consecrate our public school buildings to the highest use of patriotism and of intelligent love of our country by raising over them the flag of our I'lilon. Thirty-two years ago that Hag did not wave over states united. In a large sec. tlon of our land it was seen only when surrounded by serried battalions mined In Its defense. It was greeted with the lerrillc roar of hostile cniinun and charg ing men in brave battle array under skilled leaders, all striving to tear down and trample under foot the tlug that we honor today. Thirty-two years ago we were in the agonies of a bitter light between states discordant, dissevered, belligerent mid drenched ill fraternal blood, and to those who, like myself, are aide to remem ber how that light began, continued and ended, and who look In the youthful faces of these children the one thought that presses upon us Is how wonderful the change, how wonderful the progress dur ing these thirty-two years. Note the growth of the settled country over which our Hag waves today. Note the Increase In the numbers of stars that glitter in the Held of blue on that flag since the clos of the Rebellion. These children ran name a succession of states westward from New Jersey ami Pennsylvania in an unbroken line to the Pacific ocean, and this sug gests why It Is especially appropriate to raise the flag of our country over every public school building ill the land. The generation represented by these chil dren will have to meet and solve great problems of the practical workings of our free institutions. How very Imp.ir tant, then, that from the beginning they should become thoroughly acquainted with the history of our common country: the records of the deeds of great men, whose lives have made that history glorious, and uf the principles that underlie the complex system of our federal union. There Is not wanting Indications that the dangers which beset and ruined free In stitutions In the past will, before long, gather thick ami threatening along the pathways of our own republic; thut Indif ference to his political duties and respon. slbllitles on the part of the otherwise in tellluent citizen, which nre the lirst omi nous Indication of a dry rot at the very foundations of the structure of the com monwealth Is already so widespread that we do not notice In others what we are unwilling to correct in ourselves. It has ccnie to be an actual truth that hundreds, perhaps- thousands of our respectable in. telllKent clllzeiis, tax payers and voters do not know when nor where the primary meetings are held, at which delegates are chosen who set in motion the machinery of our whole political system, und when the natural consequences stare us In the face, regret ami even remorse are not sutlicleiit to bring forth works, meet for repentance. It Is therefore a good thing to raise the flag of our I'nlon over every public school building In the land and leach the children from the very begin ning the principles or our free Institutions, the bleslngs that flow from them ami the responsibility that grows out of them, for thus, ami thus only, can we hope to see the good shlo of stale manned by those who know their duty and are brave to perforin It: not only when the tempest rages and the dangers from without are eminent, but in those more trying periods of prolonged calm when all Is smooth upon the surface, when sloth and Indifference have suffered decay, when the rat ltnav.s the cordage and the Insect burrows in the wood, and all the while the unseen but mighty current of the great deep Is drag ging the good ship Into helpless and hope less ruin. Alay the good Frvtv'dence, who has guided us through so many dangers In the past years, still protect us In Ihe yens lo come and save us from the evil within our selves, and may our I'nion ever be strengthened so that never again, while the king of day shall continue to rise In the morn and the stars twinkle at night, shall we be in danger of Internal strife. Alay the Stars and Stripes con tinue to wave In their original rplelidor And with good Danid Webster we say: "Let my last feeble ami lingering glances In hold the ensign of a republic now known and honored throughout the world, with not a stripe erusi d. not a star obscured, bearing as a motto in characters of living light blazing on all Its ample folds as It floats over land and sea In every wind un der the heaveio-, 'Liberty now und for ever, one and Inseparable.' " deiitlemen of the board of education, In the name and on behelf of these benevo lent organizations, I present you with this beautiful American flag, to be held by you ami your successors, In trust, as the prop erty of No. 1 school of the borough of Blakely.
