D. B. Latham i nronounced the benediction. Music r was led by a quartette. ; The sermon by Rev. W. A. Cain ol the Baptist church was a most ap propriate and eloquent address, Among the many good things he uid: v A modern historian has said, United States of America, as com pared with some other, nation, has no antiquity in the arts, sciences, litera ture or government.' "He might have said with equal truthfulness, that in a little more than a century 'Uncle Sam' has grown to such proportions that he can hon orably take a place beside any of the nations and maintain his dignity and receive their respect. The Grand Army of the Bepublio has been no insignificant factor in helping other nations to reach the conclusion that we have one country with one flag, "God in creating this material world furnished a place for man as a sojourner. His primitive home was one of supreme happiness, until the intruder came. As the dark cloud sin brought was covering the human race, a voice from heaven broogb the tidings 'the seed of the woman shall bruise the serpent's head.' This was the day dawning. Our text is found in Heb, 1:8. 'But unto the son, he saith, thy throne 0 God is forever and ever, a sceptre of right eousness is the sceptre of thy king dom.' God speaks from two great books, the material universe and his revealed word. "In the text we have the exalted Christ, the world's redeemer. His exaltation is seen in his creative power, also in the endurance of the kingdom he established in the world. While other kingdoms of the earth were serving a brief period and fall ing, Jesus of Nazareth was quickly establishing an everlasting kingdom upon the principles of eternal right eousness. The Grand Army of the Bepublio who have stood true and loyal to their country should all be loyal to the Christ our Saviour." May Get Entirely Well. Mrs. A.

Ik, Ml J.fciYBCO.,Lmll,M. Washington, May 24. A temperate and carefully prepared speech was delivered in the senate yesterday on the Philippine bill by Senator Du bois, of Idaho. He confined himself almost entirely to a discussion of the commercial and industrial aspects of the Philippine question, his purpose being to show that it would be disadvantage to the people of thi country to retain the islands. What ever of profit there might be in them. he said, would accrue to a few cap italists, who, by their development of the resources of the archipelago through cheap labor, would come into competition with the agriculture ists and manufacturers of the United States in the markets of the world, Thu government's activity In the Philippines also would serve arouse China from her lethargy and, once aroused, the dragon would de four the trade of the world. An earnest and forcible reply Senator Dubois was made by Senator Beveridge, of Indiana, who contend' ed that the development of China's resources would be of advantage In trade and commerce to the United States, as the Industrial development of other nations had been. After the passage of a bill provid ing for the appointment of James W. long, on the retired list of the army, as a captain of infantry, the senate went into executive session and at 6:40 adjourned until Monday. Senator Turner introduced a bill for the amendment of the Chinese exclusion act recently passed. The amendment provides for the ellmina. tion from the first section of the act the words "not Inconsistent with treaty obligations." A fear has been expressed that this provision is too general and under It Chinese might find their way into the United States throughout other countries which fty our ''treajy obligations"' would allow Chinese to come in. The house devoted the day to prl- nte pension bills and to a few other minor measures. Mr. Loud, of Call fornia, criticised the Bpeciul pension legislation ns a disgrace and drew emphatic responses from Messrs. Sul- loway, of New Hampshire; Sulzer, of IVew York, and Miers, of Indiuna. In all 103 private pension bills were passed. Mr Gaines, of Tennessee, hnd read the appeal of the governor of Tennes see for relief for the widows and children of the men buried In the re cent mine disaster in Tennessee. Mr. Stephens, of Texas, introduced a resolution .that is directly aimed at the tenTler df a monument of Fred erick the Great, to the United States. It sets forth that the United States should not accept from any foreign nation or erect in any public place any statue of nny king, emperor, prince or potentate who has ruled or la now ruling any ration by the supposed divine right of kings. The resolution further sets forth tbat the acceptance of such a statue by this government would be a repudia tion of Its basic principles as enun ciated in the bill of rights und con stitution, an insult to the memories of our revolutionary fathers an ad mission that one man may govern a nation without the consent of the governed and after his death have his statue erected In our republic and the blessings of the divine right cf kings to rule thereby approved. The bouse at 4:15 p. m. adjourned to Monday. 1 v 0 S cream v u Is the Most Economical Greater in leavening strength, a spoon, ful raises more dough, or goes further.
