The Topeka Capital of laat Mnn day contains the following in its tele graphic columns, regarding a Dodge City girl, who has spent two winters in the high school in the natioal Cap ital: "The Kansas colony in Washing ' ton is very proud of the achievment of Mies Josephine Grobety, a Kansas girl, ft bo will graduate with high honors from the Washington schools early Dexc month. Miss Grobety is the daughter of L. G. Grobety, who is eecrttury to Congressman E. H. Madison. Although one of the young est in her clabs, being only 17 years of age, she has made an exceptional ly fine record in the Washington high school and is ranked by her teachers as one of the five leading members of the graduating class in point of schol arship. The class is large and is com posed not only of young people whose parents live iu Washington but also of the sons and daughters of senators, congressmen and other gov" eminent people from all parts of the onion who are here only during the winter months." "Miss Grobety recieved her com xnon school education in Dodge City, and also completed thefirttwo years of her high school course at that place. Coming to Washington she was admitted after examination to the Junior class of the Eastern High school and at once went to the head of her class, where she has since con- 11 -jj ol- : 1 3 1. 3 - uuubu. dub u uuu wur&cr nuu .n dose student, but she finds time each simply marked "Unknown." day for regular and sysematio athlet ic exercise and for the games and sports of her companions.

We go back forty -Ave years to trials and struggles Immortal- zed by story and song, and our hearts (Drill with patriotism as uwe call to re membrance the former days." Learn first, this occasion oomniemorat- lbg tbe past teaches us the horrors of war. l Is a financial loss. Here is a country as beautiful as a garden of Kueu, but war rolls over it and leaves it as desolate as a Sodom or Goni"rrah. Tbe civil war cost this nation three billion dollars. But tbe cost of tbe wars of history is un known. Some one guessing at It has said. ' Give me tbe money spent in bu nun conflicts aud I will buy every foot of land on earth. I will clothe every man, woman and child hi tbe garb of royalty. I will build a school house 00 every bill top and In every valley. I will place an acsdemy In every town and a college In every state throughout tbe whole world. And I will erect a cburcb upon every slope ao tbat upon every Sabbath morn tbe chimes will echo from hill to bill and enoirole tbe globe with divine praise." War brings the anguish of farewells. When the call for troops was Issued then eame tbe agony of life. At tbe door way, tbe gateway and tbe depot there were partings whiuh I hope we will never see again. , One day after a great battle a list of the dead was publisbed. After that a list of tbe missing. A mother asked, "How missing f Wbo taw blm last?" A wife sobbed, "Where did he fall, In the wood or by a stresm? ' And a sister cried, "Shall I never see him again f" No one answers. Somewhere tbe southland be sleeps in a grave But Cur ing tbe anxious uncertainty many a fond heart broke, many a strong brain reeled and many a precious life perished. War brings the horrors of carnage. Wellington said, 'lf you bave ever wit nessed one day of battle you would pray Qod tbat yon might never see such a thing again." Tbe wars of history bave J been at tbe sacrifice of thlrty-flye billion lives, or twenty times tbe present popu lation of tbe earth. While the civil war cost us nearly one million lives. Then it was four years of hatred and malice, four years of mutilation and blood, four years of deaths and funerals and four years of grief and woe, until tbe Imagi nation it exhausted In tbe attempt to de scribe each misery. But now we are crowned with peace Just as tbe grayness of tbe mornlngtide melts Into blueness of the noon so this nation it merged, once more, Into a whole. Tomorrow greetings from tbe north will be sent to the south and the flowers of Dixie will be ttrewn by South ern bands o'er tbe graves of Federal he roes. In tbe light of history we should glory In arbitration at we "call to re membrance former dayt. Secondly, learn that this occasion, com memoratlnf tbe past, teaches us the tri umph of a divine purpose. A clear un derstanding of the cause will enable at to Interpret the consequences of (bit con flict, la tbe city of Philadelphia ttands a magnlfloent statute. It is the bronze figure of a negro. Upon bit banda are manacles which bave been broken and upon bit feet are tbacklet which bave been cut. It portrays tbe Joys of freedom. But tbat wat not tbe primary cause of the civil war. Abolition of slavery was not tbe beginning but an Incident and fruit of tbat struggle. President Llnooln said: "If I could have all tbe states free and preserve tbe Uuion, I would do It If I could bave all the states slave and preserve the Union, 1 would do it. If I couU have pare of tbe states free and part slave and preserve the Union,, would do it. But a bouse divided against itself can not stand. The Union must be preserved." Henry Clay, standing be fore tbe legislature of Kentucky, said "I will never owsent to a dissolution ot this union. If congress abolishes slavery I shall yield." And not until January 1, 1S63, was the Federal governmentcom mitted to tbe policy of emancipation Thus while tbe freedom of tbe negro was right and Just yet the fundamental cause of the civil war was the issue whether or not the South bad a right to secede from tbe North. Whether or not this nation ordained of God should be divided and "perish from the face of tbe earth." -A divine purpose Is teen In the man selected to administrate this war. Slav ery was tbe social ourse of the South Every capitalist bad bit own servants to do his work. This left a class of people called tbe "poor white trash" wbo owned no' property, had no employment and en joyed no prestige. When God destroyed this evil He selected at a thunderbolt a man wbo sprang from this class so un justly wronged. In youth thlt patriot longed for usefulness. One day he stood In tbe streets of New Orleans witnessing a human being sold from an auction block. Every stroke of tbe hammer teemed to be a blow upon bit soul. Turn Ing to a friend be said: "If I ever get a chance to hit that thing I'll bit it bard by the Eternal God." Through days of darkness and months of mlsjudgment he toiled toward bis aspiration. When the voice of the nation called him to Washington, lu leaving Illiuois, be said: "There is laid upon me a task which did not rest upon tbe 'father of his country.' I turn then and look to Ihe great American people and that God who has never deserted me." Thus be laid bold tbe helm of state. Billows of bate surged areund him. Lightnings of malice flashed before blm. Winds of jealousy swept up against bim. And clouds of despair o'erarcbed bim. But he never wavered until be guided this nation into the haven of peace. His namt? Ills name Is Lincoln. And when Booth's bullet sent bis white toul Into eternity a nation bowed in reverence to a life dedicated by God. A divine purpose Is seen in tbe man selected to execute this war. What was needed was a special general for special conditions.

Impetuosity was not the prime requirement, for there Hooker failed. And bravery was not tbe only virtue, for there Meade failed. But what was needed in tbe Commander-tn Chief ot the Federal forces wat indomitable tenacity. The story is told of Sir Thom as Buxton who, one evening in walking through a London paik, stw tbe ap proach of a mad dog. Women and chil dren ran screaming but he held bis ground. When tbe brute drew netr be sprang upon it, clutched its throat and tbe struggle began. Policemen gathered around with drawn revolvers and said: Now, Buxton, let It go and we will kill But be gripped bis fingers all the tighter In under its jaws.. He tolled with upon tbe grass. He staggered with It aoress tbe road. And then with a migh ty effort be threw it gasping and dying under a spreading oak. Hit friendt took blm to a fountain, washed tbe foam from bis. bands and when they saw be was un harmed they skied their hats Jor joy. But today we commemorate a holler de termination. It was when Grant stood and taw tbe brute sectionalism rushing on in its mad career. He grappled with it at Belmont, he fought It at Snllob, he wrestled with It at Vlcksburg, be Strang led It at Petersburg, and tben he threw tbe writhing corpse under the tree of Appomattox. While four million slaves dropped tbelr shackles and a batlon arose to" ting the tongt of victory. At a clergyman It it but natural ; at a studept of bUtory It it but logical for me to believe that God It guiding the affairs of men. President Adams said: "I see a divine purpose running through tbe eventt of American history. "Truth torever on the scaffold, Wrong torever on tbe throne, Yet the scaffold ay the lutnra . And behind the dim unknown; Btandeth God amid tbe shadows Keeping watch above His own." It wat destiay that sent the ships , of Columbus across tbe trackless ocean to onr shores. , It wat destiny that caused George Washington to draw tbe sword of independence. It was destiny tbat led Sherman In hit vlctOrlont march to the sea.. It was dettiny tbat tent Roosevelt np tbe hill of San Juan. . And It Is des tiny which will lift tbll nation to Its glory. Thus tbe triumph of divine purpose It our lesson as "we call to re membranes the former days." In conclusion, learn that thlt occasion commemorating tbe past teacbet nt tbe lesson of patriotism. No one under forty fire years of age can remember tbe Inci dents of that struggle. Therefore, we gather facts from the tomes of history . and mould them into the sentiment of patriotism. Tbe man who regards this nation as no better than any other is devoid of true citizenship. Both those of us wbo re alize the nobility of courage bave our hearts made tenderwiih gratitude. Years ago I stood at Allatoona, Georgia. An old soldier told me the story. There once stood that small band of Federals, out numbered by the enemy three to one. There ran tbat awful circle of Are which mowed tbe regiment down like grain be fore tbe sickle. There, in tbe distance, was tbe Kenesaw from which Sherman signalled: ,lHold tbe fort for I am com ing." And there was tbe place from whiob Gee. Corse replied : I am minus an ear and bave a broken jaw, but I can whip all bell yet." As tbe past twept up and around me I felt like exclaiming with Webster; "Thank God, I also am an American I" But hQW much greater must be tbe enthusiasm ef you who en dured tbe march aud braved tbe battles. Ever since precious lives were sacrificed to preserve tbe integrity cf this nation we regard as sacred the blood of a pa triot. Because of tbe past there oomet to us a reconstructed loyalty. When war was declared against Spain, in tbe year 189S, there was In Congress that Confed erate cavalier of the South, Gen. Joe Wheeler. To hit associates on tbe Ways and Meant Committer be declared bis in tention of enlisting in the struggle. They tried to dissuade him. They told him tbat he wat too small as be welgbed only ninety-eight pounds. He said tbat a borse could carry him all the easier. Then tbey told blm it be went he wonld bave to follow the stars and stripes and once be fought on the other tide; Tbe tears came to bit eyet as he said : "Boys, I wat trained at West Point and I would like to obey the old flag again before I die." Thus he went down to Santiago with hit tout fired and filled with pa trlotltm. Veterans of the Grand Army I salute you. This occasion It dedioaled to you, The rustling of flags, tbe beauty of flow ert and tbe meed of praise is for yon. To yon we effer our tribute, and with you we honor those wbo have been mus tered out of life's army. "Day by day yonr rann art thinning, ' On by one they disappear: And attach succeeding roll call' , fewer voloes answer: 'Her.' , "Stillyoar regiments are marching, - J Many march with nolaeltM tread; And no bugle's sound, 'Aasembly,' In tbe oivouac ol the dead.

" Ladies of the Ballet Corps, I salute you. Some of you sent your loved ones into tbat conflict. Some of you tolled to make your children worthy of a patriotic father. Some of you waited anxiously for the news from the front. And all of you labor to keep fresh tbe memories of , a beroio past. ' - Such is tbe price we pay for freedom. Deprive a man of bis wealth and be may offer no protest; deprive blm of hit hope and be may bow bis bead in submission. Deprive bim of bis good name and ha may lorglve you. But dare to deprive blm of bis liberty and Immediately be It transformed into a giant whose woida ire thunder and whose deeds are death. Tbat wat a sacred b jur nearly three ceo- turiet tgo, wben tbe Pilgrim Fathers' oame down tbe shores of Europe to tall for the freedom of America. Bef Jre em- -barking in tbe Mayflower, which wat to -take them to their hew home, that small band ot patriot! knelt upon tbe saida and mingling tbelr prayers with the dox ology of tbe singing tea tbey plead tbelr cause before tbe great white throne. Right tben and there a marriage took place, Tbey tbat were married were , Christianity and . Liberty God married them and be proclaimed: "What I have Joined together let not man . cast asunder." And as this grand old terrestial globe swings along on Its course through space tbat union becomes tbe behedlcilon of life. "In the beauty ot the Mules Obrlat was borne across the sea, With a love tn His bosom. That transformeoyou ana me. At he died to make men holy, Let us live to make men treeb , For our tiod Is marching on," . If the Roman believed that Heaven favor tbone alone upon the muddy Tiber. If the Chinese bad only con tempt for those born outside of the Flow-' ery Kingdom, If tbe Norwegian prides himself upon bit rock-ribbed coast. And If tbe Laplander shivers an eulogy of his native clime. How much greater should be our patriotism as we 'call to remem brance tbe former days." - i ' Mtn Past Fifty In Danger -'Men put middle life have fonnd com fort and relief in Foley's Kidney Remedy.
