R. 0. OF THE STATE Department President Issues Proclamation on Memorial Day Observance. General Orders No. 4. In this, my first general order this year, I extend greetings to the new officers and also the officers that have been re-elected. I know your hearts are in the work, and to make this a successful year let up work together in harmony, be loyal one to another and live up to our ob ligations. To the retiring officers we are grateful for their loyal assistance. Do not lay down your work with your of fice, but continue to serve and your labors will be crowned with success. The 30th of May has become the "day Memorial" all over the land. It is sacred to every Woman's Relief Corps member, and doublV dear to the valiant G. A. R. Since last Memorial day many com rades have lain them down to "the sleep that knows no waking on this side of life," and this day devoted to "the silent grand army" grows more and more sacred as the years speed on in the|r flight. May we by our example show to the world that this day should be a holy day, not a holiday, and let us ever re member the great obligation resting upon us to "perpetuate the memory of our heroic dead", by the sacred ob servance of Memorial day. Let us gather beautiful flowers and place them on the resting places of our heroes who are sleeping in graves marked by the flag they died to save. Let those who are adjacent to streams pay loving tribute to our sol dier-sailor dead. Do not forget our Spanish-Ameri can boys who have answered the last roll-call. Let us remember the service for the "unknown dead." And remember our departed sisters. Place the flag and flowers on their graves. Engage the children in the work of this day, that they may realize that in years to come they must take our places in this work of love, and theirs must be the hands to twine the gar lands and perform the service of re membrance and devotion. "Let also the children, a floral wreath bringing, Aid in the honor of patriots due Their fresh, lovely voices be grateful ly singing Under the folds of the red, white and blue." Let each corps attend divine service with the post the Sunday preceding Memorial day. Corps chaplains will forward Me morial day reports to Department Chaplain E. Amelia Geary, Fargo, not later than June 5th. Contributors to southern memorial fund should be sent to Department Treasurer Carrie A. Johnson, Lisbon, so the corpS will receive proper credit.

THE SVSMZMG TIMES, GRAffl) FORKS, M. D. FUST OFTHE BONNE LECTURES WIS FINE Boston Lecturer Made Philoso phy a Business That is Every Man's. LARGE CROWD AT THE M. E. CHURCH "The Theistic Outlook" Sub ject Last Night—Second of Series Tonight. (By Rev. G. L. Powell. Minot.) An attentive, deeply interested and thoughtful audience assembled in the auditorium of the First Methodist Episcopal church last night to hear the distinguished philosopher of Bos ton university deliver his first lecture in connection with the series to be given this week under the auspices of Wesley college, as already an nounced in these columns. Students, professors and clergymen were much In evidence. The citizens also were present in large numbers, so that the spacious auditorium was comfortably filled. Tlie subject of the lecture was "The Theistic Outlook" and it was treated in such an illuminating way than an abstruse theme was rendered so exxceedlngly interesting and de cidedly instructive that even a "popu lar" audience might enjoy it highly. "Philosophy is not everybody's busi ness," and yet Dr. Bowne possesses the happy faculty of making it so. Dr. Robertson presided and in his own happy manner introduced the lecturer of the evening. A brief outline fol lows: About a generation ago theistic and religious thought was greatly dis turbed by conditions prevailing in the scientific and philosophical world. It was the reign of skepticism as repre sented by such men as Tyndall, Romanea, Spencer and their school. This choatic situation was produced by the formidable generalizations of evolution being confidently given to the world in high sounding phrase ology, and at a time when the leaders of religious and philosophic thought were taken by surprise and alto gether unprepared to stem the natur alistic gust. But in the early eighties a change of thought took place. Skepticism began to decline until now we have the most friendly feelings existing between science and religion. Each haB come to understand the other and the warfare has happily ceased. Now, the materialistic interpreta tion of this period was of a two-fold origin, namely, (1) a multiplicity of facts, which conditioned a disturb ance in' the mental equilibrium, and men thought the end of all things was imminent. In order to reach a readjust ment time twaS needed. (2) The re sultant philosophic attempt to deal with these ascertained facts was su perficial and crude. Thiq philosoply regarded lumps as the only realities and consequently a class realism held sway. "Matter we know but what is spirit?" It was impossible that such a con dition of things should long continue. Today a happy change is manifest We have a deeper and better philo sophical insight, with the result that the partition of territory between science and philosophy is clearly marked and the boundaries closely established. No need exists in this age for the founding of chairs in our theological schools to bring about a reconciliation between science and religion. This division of territory has en abled science to confine herself to her special field—that of dealing with phenomena, and here we come into a realm of uniformities of co-existence and sequence. "How things come aJbout in a scheme of law is. the spec ial problem of science. The knowl edge thus obtained does not depend on philosophy and religion, and is exceedingly useful in the practical outworkings of life. Philosophy, however, finds itself in another realm—that of reality. It has to do with causality—with the dyna mic system behind all phenomena. Philosophy's province is to discover and show intention, will, purpose, in the great movement and ingoings of life and the universe. With this un derstanding, it will be readily seen that science and religion are not op posed to each other, but are, indeed, supplementary. This distinction be tween science and philosophy clears away many difficulties from the doc trine of evolution. (I)1 as a descrip tion of an orderly process by which phenomena have come about, it may •be accepted, but (2)) when it offers as a metaphysical explanation—that is, sets itself up as a theory of casual ty—it must be discarded and regarded as the essence of "philosophic illiter acy." The aim of philosophy is to discover direction and significance in the process of evolution and to ex hibit a guiding intelligence, will and •power in the whole age long move ment. Here Dr. Bowne emphasized the conclusion as a return to the doctrine of the divine immanence and showed its significance for life in its mani fold relationships. He declared that the line of demarcation to be not so closely drawn as we have been taught. The natural roots continually in tlie supernatural, and the supernatural manifests itself in the orderly work ings of nature. "In Him we 'live and move and have our being." The lecture tonight will commence at 8 o'clock sharp in the M. E. church. It is desirable that all who propose attending be present at the opening so as not to interrupt proceedings. A general invitation is extended, and all will be welcome. Is Improving. James Rooly of Blanchard, N.

FATdLLT WOUNDED RT WANDERING ROUE Mrs. Kueffell, Mother of Mrs. John Burgess of This City, Victim of Accident. KNELT FOR WOOD SHOT PIERCED BOSOM Mrs. Burgess Almost Prostrat ed With Grief—Son's Illness Precludes Attendance. About 7 o'clock last evening a long distance telephone message brought the shocking news of a fatal accident at Little Falls, Minn., Mrs. Kueffell, mother of Mrs. John Burgess of this city, being the victim. Mrs. Kueffell was In the back yard, and aa she knelt to pick up a few sticks of wood, a shot rang out and with a cry of anguish she fell to the ground with the life blood gushing from a gaping wound in the back and breast. The bullet was of a large calibre and came from the riflle of a careless hun ter who was roaming on the banks of the Mississippi hunting small game. The accident happened about o'clock last evening and although medical aid was rushed to the house and everything within human concep tion is being done for the injured lady, small hopes for her recovery are en tertained. Mrs. Kueffell's close rela tions have been summoned to the bed side. Her daughter, Mrs. Burgess, wife of John Burgess of the Grand Porks Realty company, however, with a double load of trouble, is unable to go to her mother, as her three-year-old •boy is dangerously ill with typhoid fever, necessitating the closest care and attention. HOT FOR THEIR BENEFIT Protest of Duluth Jobber Came to A'aught—ot Making Bates for His Benefit The Minnesota warehouse commis sion has turned down the protest of C. R. Rust, of Duluth, in regard to rates recently made toy the commis sion allowing inland Minnesota cities to compete with Duluth and the Twin Cities. In discussing Mr. Ruts's let ter, C. F. Staples, one of the commis sioners said: "We today have on hand complaints on the other side of the question, which assert we have not made the in land distributing point rates low enough to certain towns—and there may be something in this. I believe in some instances, the rate will not let the small jobber make over $1 on the $100. I see no reason why Mr. Rust, of Duluth, should make special com plaint, except on the ground that we are not making rates solely for the 'benefit of his town and the Twin Cities.
