monument in Wadiingon Park, was hand
Homely dmped with Hms and festooned with
ropes of evergreen, as wns also the monu
ment. Just before the opening of the exer
cises the (Irand Army Post took their places
on the platform and the military company
stationed themselves immediately lo front
of it. V resident K. V. Urines called the as
semblage together, and Kev. Davis, of the
M. 11. Church, otlercd an ehxpicnt prayer. A
song by the llayden quartette followed and
after it the address of President Griggs,
which was replete with good thoughts of a
character eminently appropriate to the oc
casion. Mr. Griggs, for a man who is not
engaged constantly in public speaking, is a
finished speaker, and his address of Monday,
which was delivered from notes, was n proof
of that fact. The services of the Grand
Army were read, and folhwing came there

under the charge of their teachers. At the

the method practiced in that country and
presented the fruits of his study iu a pam

its adoption here for many years, if ever;
but it is worth describing, if on.y to show
what can be accomplished in that line and
what disadvantage we are laboring under.
'The government simply acts as a transfer

The tirst registration of a piece of prop

A Ten 1'ieturH of Jay t.u.ibl.
Let mo tell you how Jay Could loo'cs as
e sits there undergoing tho examination.
Ho has just toilitio I that ho is 4'.' years of
e, und he is sitting with a tired look ou
his face answering the questions put to him.
lie talks freely, und his tones aro us soft as
those of a woman. There is nothing osten
tatious about him, and he seems to be mor on
the persuasive than ihn aggressive order.
His little lorm is dressed i i a well cut busi
ness suit, an I he sits slightly bent in bis
chair. Ono of his small white hands rests
upon tbe table and he turns a pencil over
and over as the talk goes ou. 1 note thtit
his huud is of u goo I si.:e, well tilled out,
and vi ry white and soft. . Wtill it trembles
with nervousness, and tho whole man seems
to be a bundle of skm, bono, bruin and
nervo. His other hand lies upon his knee,
nnd 1 seo that ono of his legs i.s crossed over
the other and that he wears a buttoned shoe
with a good broad sole. He gestures nerv
ously as he talks. 'ow and then Le rubs
bis hands together nnd now shakes his lin
gers at the examiners. Ho smiles, too, and
his black eyes light up and hj looks co.'ilui.
and it loudly. 1 judge ho has some sensi
of humor, and I know from tbe wrinkles in
his brow tit times that bis nature is line
enough to tool ului.ui any kind of u satia
tion. His face Isa curious ono, but not ou first
view striking It is long, dark, uii I sallow
iu complexion. Tne forohea I is not very
high nor broad, but it is well lilled out and
tho s:;in is drawn tightly over it Just
above tho forebea 1 baldness i.s beginning to
creep in, mid through tho thin black hair
you note that thore Is a decided rise us far
back as the crown, a rise which goes up
like a piano and with no bumps.
Mr. Uould's hair is black, with hero and
there a glimpse of silver. It is rather t.'iiek
ut tbe sides and around tho buck of the
head, and ho keeps it well eut His t'aee is
covered with a full beard of black whiskers
into which the gray is al-o creeping. These
whiskers are not long and are curly aud
gh'Sslv.- (ioiild s eyes are full of expression,
and they laugh nnd flash Uu occasions.
His no e is iucdued to the Roman and the
nostrils are very large and sensitive. His
ears are large, und be combs his hair behind
them. Ho was not at all forward in ex
