ADDRESS BY ATTORNEY L. M. LANGE.
L. M. Lange, Commander of Stoddard Post,
opened with the following remarks:
Through the ranks of the nushtid thousands
of the great city: uuder the draped folds of the
flag for which te fought, while legions of mar
shalled troops und sorrowing friends and com
rades keep step to the funeral strains which
float upon the air, our comrade aud command

The nation mourns and is bent in sorrow over
the grave of a mighty leader, ami remembering
his devotion to his flag and to his country, the
manhood of thelaul arise and promise to follow
him in manly deeds aud steadfast patriotism.

the wreath of love and reverencc thit is this

mortal remains of our Immortal de
Gen. Grant for the past 25 years has been a
type of the development of our nation, and
when he peacefully and calmly sank to rest on
the heights of Mt. McGregor, being called away
from this battle-fuld to the headquarters o(
lieace and rest above, it was not merely the
nickering ahd dyiim of a life, but it w:is also the
closing of a chapter or our tmiional history.
He wis our commander in the day* of battle,
but later when he joined the ranks of the Grand
Army of the Itcpublic, were privileged by
ties which bind the order ifi love and loyaity to
e:tll him our comrade, and over the now silent
heart of our comrade rests the badsre of the
tirand Army. It is therefore 11:tinjr that the
firand Army of the liipublic should wiill one
accord a-vemblc In memory of their comrade
and pay their tribute to his worth as a soldier
and a citizen. '.Vhile abler lips will pronounce
his eulogy as a man, a soldier, and a statesman,

ciples of our order: fraternity, Charity and
It is well known to all how he clung to his
friends snd how his heart seemed to twine
about th"m, and espeei illy can we as soldiers
remember with pleasure how during his aging
lays he loved a:ul cherished tlit reeolloc ions of
the works and deeds of the volunteer soldier.
IIKIC -II the la*t public message from his pen is
the dedication of his memoirs to the soldiers and
sailors of the army of the Kebe'.lioii. While we
notice hi« strong fraternal feeling for his com
rades in arms, wo can testify the reciprocal
feeling that went up from th'ii l^irts of the boys
in bin towards their chief, and, as evidence
that this .sentiment is foun '.ed upon a firm
foundation, that oM rue worth of the man and
truest qualities of a brave soldier, we may point
to the ae ion of those who face I him in the

Like other memorable utterances of our de

history as expressive of the character of Grant.

Attorney Bohrer was then introduced and
spoke as follows:
ADDRESS BY ATTORNEY DANIEL ROHBER.
It Is appointed unto all men, once to die, and
after this, the Judgment. This is the message
that comes to all flesh: to the king upon his
throne to the peasant in his hut to the infant
of days and tothe old man of au hundred years*
I-ove cannot'shield us might cannot protect us:
eutreaty cannot avail us. Indifference and un
belief cannot stay the hour. Whether men will
hear or whether men will forbear, the day
comes when we will one by one stand on the
sands of tbe sea, whose waves wash the sunset
shore of every human life.
Already some of us can catch in the still watch.
cs of the night, and even In the busy hum of the
day, the low wash of those waves, and the faint
murmur of that mighty ocean. One day, and
not far In the future, we will stand alone-on that
shore. Life's journey will be over. For a few
years, it may be for three score years and ten
It may be we have Jonrneved steadily toward it.
Husband, or wife, or child, or friend, or the fair
world, cannot journey with us longer over that
sea. whose dark waters no returning sail has ev
er whitened: all flesh must voyage alone.
At the great heart of lie country, whence
come the pulse bents that give life tothe land
where the river, pure and peerless among rivers,
mingles its waters with the sea that is peopled
with the fleets of the worid stands an open
tomb. Aronnd that tomb today a nation with
uncovered head is gathered, burying its dead
out of Its sight. It i» a spectacle unique in the
history of life. It fa not a nation only that is
gathered there. It is the wide world. The snn
in its journey over land, and Isle, and ocean will
shine on iw» people where mourning for the dead
is not heard.
From the pleasant homes of England and the
mountain sides tt Scotland over a thousand
leagues of blue w^ter, mourning comes. They
are our kinsmen. Hud their blood flowed In the
veins of the great etueftatn. nut it is not for the
warrior of an hnndred ((elds that theymourn.
In the far South the children of the snn. have
draped tbe halls of the Montemmas in the sym
bols of sorrow. But It is not for the soldier who
trailed their banner in the dnst. Monterey and
Chfpultepec, Churubusco, and Molino del Key,
ana the march from the Gulf to the valley, are
nil forgotten today.
From the Ohio to the gulf: from the land that
the hoof .if the waV horse lias trodden under
f.iot from fair homes that were ruined and
fields that were despoiled and cities whose
streets have echoed to the victor's trend, mourn
ing comes. But it is not for the warrior. It is
not for the battle-winner. Donaldson aud
Vicksburg. Shitoh and the Wilderness, are for
For whom do they mourn? Other chieftains
have been borne to their la*t resting places with
all the pomp aud all the honors that the land
could show. But never before has the victor
aud the vanquished joined hands and hearts to
carrv. tenderly and reverently, and sorrowfully,
to his last home, liini who was the leader of the
one and the conqueror of the other.
I detract nothing from bin achievements as a
soldier. I blot out none of his victories in the
held. I forget not that wonderful career that
crowned him the battle-winner of the world.
But today I speak of (he facts of today, and from
tlic stand point of today, and memory lingers,
uot on the soldier, who was the vanquisher of
armies, but on the man, who was the conqueror
He was steadfast. Pet ween tbe shifting
sands, carried *»'ther and thither by the sea, and
the et'.ing iliff against which the breakers
have battled in vain for teiuuries men are
quick to discern. They are as quick to discern
between the wavering, vacillating man, and the
man Arm, resolute and steadfast. Having done
all, to stand is the highest duty of every, man.
To stand Arm to stand forever. Such a man
cannot but win. In such a man we cannot help
but have faith, and when one commands our
faith he has au open road to our heart
He.waaiMPure man. Pure in his life: pure in
hirspeech and pure in his intercourse trtth the
world. No bribe stained his hands no Ill-gotten
gain swelled his coffers no unholy ambition for
place marred his life no reputation was ever
blasted by his tongue. Human nature does hom
age to such a man. We could uot close our
hearts against him if we would.
He was an unselfish man. His steadfastness
and unselAshness made him cling to his friends
with the tenacity of death. If there is a God
lik£ virtue left in the earth it is unselAshness. If
there is one trait in a man that more than anoth
er*commends him to his fellow man. it is, that
he stands true to Ills friend through evil report
and through good report. The needle that
points to the pole only when the sun shines is
not worth the having even at noonday. There is
a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
How much does it ennoble any mere man of
whom these words can be truthfully spoken?
He was a great-hearted man. One Instance is
enough. It throws bis whole heart open to us.
It was his treatment of Lee's army after its
render. It was a very little thing, in fact that
he did. The few horses and the little personal
effects given up to these men, were almost of no
appreciable value to the South at large, and of
small value to the men who actually received
thein. But a cup of cokl water to the fainting
and friendless man counts more than the cost
liest gifts to the king in his palace. These men
were footsore and hungry, and vanquished and
disheartened. They were at the feet of the con
without a ray of hope for the future
riendless, powerless, and homeless. He step-
ed their side. He let them know that in the
of supreme triumph be had thought of
them. By a few simple words and by a simple
act. lie said to thein more plainly than a thous
and proclamations could tell: You are my breth
ren you have been wrong grievously wroug:
but you are my brethren. Here is my hand and
nungjUgtan all, here is iny heart. Let us have
peace. J9e was their friend in the blackest hour
of their history, and when tne temptation was
a'most overpowering to be otherwise. These
men were my kinsmen. There is no drop of
Northern blood in my veins. I have no apology
for them. As long as they lieid arms in their
hands tliey were aliens, and strangers to me.
But today, standing in the presence of the dead.
I join with thousands and tens of thousands of
tbe men of the south in invoking blessings ou
the memory of the iiutn of Appomattox.
Wyelif died and was buried in the land he
longed to save, it was thought to destroy liis
name aud his teachings, and blot his memory
from thejuind of the world, llis body, taken
from the tomb, was burned, and his ashes scat
tered on the waters of the river Avon. It was a
vain thought. Thev forgot that death and de
struction, and burning, cannot stay the march
of the mind.
The Avon to the Severn runs,
The Severn to the sea
Wide as the waste of waters spread
Shall Wyelif's teachings be.
Let us take home the lesson. The dead are
not dead. We mav bury his body out of our
sight, but it matters not. llis ashes may be
scattered to the four winds of the earth, but it
matters not. His name and his words, his deeds
aud liis influence, his steadfastness of purpose,
his purity of life, liis unselilsli i: iture, his loyal

these made the tnai and these will live on and

ADDRESS BY ItEV. D. HKNDKU.SON.
Rev. D. Henderson, of the Congregational
Church, then spoke. Following is an abstract
of his remarks:
It is nearly four year*! since the body of the be
loved President. Gartield was committed to the
tomb. The nation sorrowed then over a star so
early set a life untimely elosed but tills feeling
of incompleteness does not exist today as we
mourn over Gen. Grant. His lie suggests ac
complishment and completion. He finished the
work given him to do. He quelled with unpar
alleled energy snd military skill the rebellion
which threatened the unity and very life of this
country. He tilled with acceptance during two
terms the presidential oflice, the man for tbe
place and the times Keleased from public cares
he finished a course of travel, making a lour of
the world, and was everywhere being received
with the greatest regard and enthusiasm. The
literary work of his life he brought to a termina
tion. holding the pen as he had held the sword,
in the very face of death ami lastly, hi peace
was made with God. Descended it is said from
the ancient and renowned clan Grant, he exhib
ited in an extrdordinary degree the quality of
mind, iudicated by the motto of that clan, "Stand
Fast." He possessed iuviiu-ibie courage, imper
turbable coolness aud tenacity of purpose. He
was endowed with great commou sense and was
also strong in faith. He believed in himself, his
soldiers. Ins country and in an all-wise Provi
dence. Passed away from earthly strife into
the invisible worid,Gen. Grant will evermore be
remembered as the savior of liis country in the
time of peril.
The folllowing poem was read by Prof. L.
Wright, principal of the Worthiugtou Schools
The land was swept by cruel war:
The foes had gathered from afar
And then it seemed that Freedom's star
Had set to rise no more.
The nlon forces gaiued no ground
Where'er they moved, defeat they found
The nation seemed by storm clouds bound.
By darkness covered o'er.
The Union men wcra brave and true
More noble men the world ne'er knew
Than were tlic boys who wore the blue.
And fought for equal lawa.
A soldier from the ranks was seen.
Of stature small and modest mien.
To step upon the bloody scene.
Revive the sinking cause.
ne was unknowibto wealth or fame
Inherited no illustrious name
Uuheralded, on the stage he came
And turned the tide of war.
He met his foes upon the fleld:
Where'er he moved they could but yield
By heavy blows their fate he sealed
Success his only star.
O'er Henry Arst his banner rose
Then Donelson yielded to his blows:
At Shiloli he drove back his foes
And gaiued an honored name.
Vicksburg by storm and siege he gained.
Then Chattanooga be maintained.
Aud by his skill his foesrestralaed.
And added to his fame.
No plan of his had he let fall
Success had crowned his efforts all
He soon responded to the call
To take supreme command.
At length his opportunity came.
And he proved equal to the same,
Directing with unerring aim.
All soldiers in the laud.
He reached the top not at one bound.
But step by step and round by round:
The pinnacle of fame he found
By faithful work and true.
When war had burst upon the land.
And none were found who could command
The true and brave and loyal baud.
Then Grant his duty knew.
He from the Arst could clearly see.
That troops but moved as these might be,
Would to the north bring victory.
And close the bloody war.
With Thomns guarding Tennessee,
And Sherman marching to the sea.
And Meade confronting General Lee,
The end could not be far.
Around the foe the army coiled
All efforts to break through were foiled
While .they in desperation toiled
To prolong the bloody strife.
The crushing blows fell thick and fast
Upon the foe, like a-northern blast,
And Appomattox came at last
To save a nation's life.
Hear now the terms of the conqueror.
Magnanimous, as great in war.
Unto a foe who'd struggled for
An end they failed to gain.
•'Go to your homes, your work pursue.
And there no harm shall come to you
While yon to your parole are true
And at your homes remain."
When peace was through the Wnd I
And heroes of the war were na
No other one was so far famed
Or stood so high as Grant.
The people sought for leader, one
Whose battles all'd been victories won,
To heal what war and strife haMone,
And made him President.
As he In war the first became.
Also in peace lie gained great fame.
And proved to all that be eould frame
A plan for avoiding war.
When war again threatened the state,
He then proposed to arbitrate.
And fmicht two nations, strong and great,
That peace was better far.
No greater honors e'er were paid
To tnan, than at Ills feet were laid
By a grateful people he had made
Victorious and free.
Then he around the world did go.
While kings and nobles vied to show
What honors they could best bestow
On one so great as he.
This man a nation's life did save.
Preserved It from a bloody grave
Confirmed the freedom of the slave,
And men to victory led.
The greatest a ddier of Ills age.
Who will illumine history's page.
Has stepped from off this living stage
To joiu the Illustrious dead.
Ills work completed ere lie dies.
With honors covered as he Ilea.
Ills fame ascending to the skies.
He's mourned by one aud all.
Both North and South tneir tributes bring.
And o'er his bier their dimes sing.
While tolling bells in sadness ring,
All to his funeral call.
That quiet, silent, honest man,
That brave and true American,
Who calm In battle, clear in plan,
O'ercame his every foe.
That name wilt live while tongue and pen
Proclaim tbe deeds of noble men
And as the years roll on, I ken.
His tamo will brighter grow.

pays homage to his fame, but his memory Is pe
culiarly sacred to his old soldiers. We shared
with him the tolls and hardships of hla
sololer life. The ties which bound us to him
were formed amid the trying scenes of war.
Some of us were with him at Fort Donaldson,
where, by his
coolness aud courage, he turned
defeat into a brilliant victory! We were with
him on the terrible fleld of Shil»h! We follow

him to drive the rebel hosts from Lookout Mt
and Mission Ridge, and when he was chosen to
the high position of Cominander-iu chief, of all
our armies, and left the west, he went to the
east followed by the love and respect of his
old comrades. We were proud of liirn! Proud
or hlmasaCommanderand proud of him as a
man! We had known him amid success aud de
feat. We had watched him win his way step by
step by his own merit from the low position
which he first held to that of Commander-in
chief. We had seen him when the bitter tongue
of slander was lashing him with remorseless
fury we saw him when the whole world was
applauding his deeds, and we ever found him
the same plain, quiet, unassuming man, un
daunted by abuse or defeat, and unaffected by
success or applause. He won the confidence of
his soldiers by showing Ills confidence in them.
He was entirely free from that haughtiness
which usually characterized the officer* of the
Regular Army. He recognized to the fullest ex
tent the rights and position of our volunteer
soldiers. He gave them full credit for the feel
ings of patriotism which prompted them to re
spond to their country's call. Watching with
jealous care after the interests and welfare of his
soldiers, ever recognizing the common manhood
of all, he treated those of every rank with equal
courtesy and kindness.
His success in the east and as Commander-in
chief fully sustained the confidence we of the
west had in him, and today there is no East, no
West, no North, no

was that all were troubled with chills
and fever. I carried with me several

as I took it I had perfect health. As
soon as I ceased taking it, like the rest,
was afflicted with chills. When I re

ADD It ESS BY REV. WM. COPP.
Rev. Wm. Copp, Chaplain of tho Tost, made
the following remarks:
MY COM HADES After all that has been said
and so well said it m.iy be (If I have anything
to do in eonnectien with these memorial ser
vices) it is to call attention especially to the
moral and religious virtues of our deceased
Chieftain and late comrade whose recent death
has called us together here today.
On the 27th of April. 187s, Gen. Grant, while
then President of the United States, took up a
copy of the New York Christian Advocate, in
which he found a sketch copied from the Obser
ver, edited by the late Dr. Prime, that called
the particalar attention of our rulers to the fact
stated in God's word. "That when the righteous
are in authority the people rejoice but when
the wicked bear rule the people mourn." He
had no doubt orten read that before, but the
comments upon it by the writer of that sketch
particularly Interested liim. He called in Bish
op Simpson, who was then present at the White
House, and asked him to road it to him. After
the re iding he said to the Uisliop, "1 think that
means me." "Well," said the Bishop, "there
area great many bearing rule in the land to
whom it miKlit refer." "Well," said the Presi
dent, "I shall heed those statements more fully
from this hour." That evening he ^called his
family together and read the chapter containing
those words, and from that evening General
Grant became an earnest enquirer after divine
wisdom to guide him in his life work. ust
when and where he became an earnest Christian
may not be known to his own family but that
be was a man of prayer and devotion to God
through tlie last years of Ids life Is beyond a
doubt, upon the part of those most intimate
witli him. My comrades, he prepared for death
while in life, and that, too, long before the at
tack of tlie fatal disease that filially closed his
most useful and eventful life.

A CRIPPLB RESTORED.
Some two years ago I received a boy
(Lona White) into th* Orphan's Home
near Macon, from Columbus. He was
one of the poorest creatures I have ever
seen—nothing but skin and bone—crip-
and deformed by scrofula, which
ad from his birth. About
eighteen months ago I commenced giv
ing him Swift's Specific. After sever
al bottles had been taken and no visi
ble results to be seen, I begpn to de
spair, but continued the medicine. At
last signs of improvement became ap
parent, and from that date I the pres
ent there has been a constant improve
ment in both body and mind. He is
now about 14 years old, and is one of
the brightest boys I have ever known.
I honestly believe that he will ulti
mately outgrow the effects of this
loathsome disease under the influence
of Swift's Specific.
The two cases of erysipelas which
were treated two years ago with S. S.

disease. L. D. PAYNE,

While at Heron Lake the other day
waiting for the train we took a look at
a map of the Northwestern railroad.
We found just one point worn clear
throusrh by fingering, and that was
Worthington. So many fingers had
been pointed at this point that the map
was worn clear through. How is this
for a "pointer?"—Advance.
Let's see, Heron Lake is north of
Worthington several miles. Tlie wear
