NATIVE SONS HOLD MEMORIAL SERVICE EULOGIZE DEAD MEMBERS OF THE ORDER Patriotic Addresses Are Made and Mu sical Selections Materially Assist Good Program — Decoration* Lavish and Beautiful Commemorating the dead and de parted of their order the Native Sons and Native Daughter* of the Golden West congregated In their hall at 211% East Second street yesterday and fit tingly observed the occasion with sim ple yet appropriate ceremonies. Eulogies od those who have gone to their last rest, as well as the duty mankind owes to Its progenitors, were expressed in addresses by F. A. Ste p hen son and Rev. F. C. Dorrls and vocal and instrumental selections were rendered by Mrs. M. W. Everhardy, Miss Opal McCleary and Carl Darattl. The hall was tastefully decorated with the national flags and the bear flag, the insignia of the Native Sons. Ferns and sweet peas covered the piano In their tender simplicity, and around the platform were strewn lilies, smllax and ferns. "Nearer, My God, to Thee," sung by the entire assemblage, opened the pro gram, and then Miss Opal McCleary, accompanied by Miss Ethel Belcher, rendered a selection in her tender and deeply pathetic voice. F. A. Stephenson, who was the first to address the assemblage, dwelt with emphasis on the reasons for Memorial day. "Custom has brought about a desire to honor our dead and those who did so much for us," said Mr. Ste puenscn. "The patriotism of thos? Nt us who are still here brings with It a realization of what we had handed down to us from our fathers, and what all they accomplished meant to the present generation. Custom Uniersal "This custom has grown to be uni versal all over our broad country. It is not confined to any one district nor to any one people, for it is no longer a personal feeling that pervades the ceremonies of Memorial day. And neither is the use of flowers a local custom. It has grown and spread until everywhere in our country the tribute of the fields and gardens is exacted to glorify those who have left for the great beyond. "Symbolic not only of sweetness, of purity and of grace, flowers are also symbolic of man himself. In the spring of life he flourishes and blooms, and when the winter comes with its serled years of toil and sustenance he departs, as does the flower. "But as the spring returns and brings with it a rejuvenation of the flowers which passed away the pre vious year, so also does man bloom again. That other life, the one beyond the grave and the coldness of mortal clay, is ever present in our memories, and who here knows but that the one so gone from our midst Is not with us in every thought? "We who are here today should be broader than locality. Not alone should we think of those whom we have known as dead, but we should also think of those who made the past, and made It so we might live in our pres ent state. Not so much to our own efforts as to those of our forefathers do we owe the present, and it is to them that we must offer up prayers for the commeoration of this day." Rev. Oorris Speaks "The Rosary," that soul-inspiring composition by Nevin, was tunefully rendered by Dr. Carl Darattl on a cornet, and the Rev. F. C. Dorris oc cupied the platform. Rev. Mr. Dorris spoke of the duty we owe those to fol low and how we should strive to do as much for posterity as has been done for us. "Sons and Daughters of the Golden ■west," said Rev. Mr. Dorris, "we are together today to hallow the memory of those who have gone before us. Their work is all around us, and even in our thoughts we must give them all honor for the present. "It Is fitting that we should do so. One of the four tokens of lmmortality is the fact that we hold in our memory those who have departed. This world Is not all, and those who have gone have but changed places. Life would be futile were this not true. "We are but the product of those who died before us. All the conquest, both of nature and human nature, has but served its purpose in making us what we are today, and it is to them that we owe all honor. "We hear some one say, 'I am a Belf made man.' This Is true In but one sense. The man who so boasts but takes the material in hand and by adaptation and assimilation makes himself. The material is woven into the fiber of the soul and bullded Into the tissue of brain. "But, on the other hand, there is no self-made man. He is but a product of the past, and into every nerve and brain cell of his being is poured the achievements of a past generation. We are but the products of past gen erations, and with such being the case we owe all to our forefathers. Reason for Being "Our entire reason for being lios in the past, and it is our sacred obliga tion to honor the dead. AYe ran do this in no better way than to achieve as they have achieved, and when we go to our own rest there will be something that the following generation can grasp and say, 'He did that.' "Washington and "Wellington and Lincoln and all the other illustrious men who did so much for posterity were great because they burned with a flre of fierce sincerity and ever-present righteousness. Their passion for truth, duty and love of fellow men never fal tered. "There is still room for us to do like wise. Possibilities and material are at hand, and if love for humanity, for truth and for righteousness ever per vade there Is no reason why our names should not also be enrolled along with those of other days. "We of California have excellent op portunities. Our environment, our life, oyr every surrounding tends to fill us with love toward all and a superior sense of righteousness. Our nation should come first, but after that the state. Put Into your hearts the sun shine of the day and the ruggedness of the mountains and keep on working to be what your dead before you were." After Rev. Mr. Dorris had finished Mrs. Everhardy sang "Abide With Me," followed by "Auld Lang Syne" by the entire assemblage and a benediction pronounced by Rev. Mr. Dorris. ♦» > — , A Narrow E»*Hp«- Q. W. Cloyd, a merchant of Plunjc, Mo., had a narrow escape four years ago, when he ran a Jimson bur Into his thumb.

PERRY W. WEIDNER, ESQ., Chairman Owens River Campaign Committee. Dear Sir: The necessity for a greater water supply has been crowding In on the city for years, at least ever since 1900 when the city commenced to expand so rapidly that even the most sanguine were astonished at Los Angeles' progress and advancement. Shall this advancement be checked by MAKE-SHIFT water experiments, which in the end would cost us far more, both directly and Indirectly, than the estimated cost of the Owens river enterprise? In addition to the greater water supply which the Owens river project will furnish us, must be emphasized the permanency of this supply having its source amongest the eternal snow caps and peaks of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. I hope to see our supply so ample after this aqueduct is built that there will not be a dry spot in town, and the development of semi-tropic cultivations — one of our many drawing car 4s — will not be handicapped by the lack of water. Ample water will give us perfect sanitation and will put the finishing touches upon this city's justified claims of being the hand somest and best home city in the world; nature gave us our superb climate let man do his share toward shaping our climate and other resources so that both combined will henceforth make our city the greatest tourist and residence city of the United States, and last, but not least, the manufactur ing center of the west. As I do not care to see the growth of this city endangered by a shortage of Its permanent water supply, or be a party to expensive experiments for temporary make-shift additions to our present system, I shall vote and work for the proposed bond issue, considering it one of the best invest ments which the citizens of Los Angeles have ever made, for water is king in Southern California.

OLO VETERANS HEAR BURDETTE TEMPLE BAPTIST PASTOR DE LIVERS ADDRESS Preacher Givet Vivid Word Picture of Battle from Personal Expe. rlence— Patriotic Alr« Ren dered on Organ Five hundred veterans of the Civil and Spanish wars congregated at Tem ple Auditorium yesterday morning at the big memorial service held under the auspices of the United Spanish War veterans. Comrades of the blue and the gray sat side beside, while one of the Union boys. Private Robert J. Bur dette, preached the sermon. It was an inspiring service, and time and again the grizzled wardogs nodded their heads in vigorous approval, or their eyes dimmed at some dear mem ory th° speaker's words recalled. Instead of the usual hymn tunes Prof. Klngsley played the grand old hymns of the republic, "Just Before the Battle, Mother." "Maryland," "March ing Through Georgia," "Bonnie Blue Flag." "Tramp. Tramp, Tramp, 'Rally 'Round the Flag" and "Dixie. As an organ solo Prof. Kingsley played Mendelssohn's "War March of the Priests," from Athalie. Mrs Bessie Ives Harrison sang the solo part in "The Vacant Chair," tho quartet accompanying her in the chorus. Her clear, sweet voice as she sang the well known song, dear to the veterans of both sides, brought tears to the eyes of many. Tells Own Experience Dr Burdette took for his subject "The Lost Fort," telling graphically of the capture of a fort which he helped take. He said: "So far away— away in the advance, and far on another road— so faint and dull that it scarcely seems to be a sound, but rather a sensation that runs past the unguarded portal of the war to touch the brain— the echo of a dream— boom! And yet it is deadly clear; fearfully near. Every listless head In the weary ranks is lifted. Questioning eyes answer each other. Every soldier has read the message, shouted so far away by a tongue of flame between black lips. "Unconsciously the marching ranks are locked. Instinctively the step is quickened. The man with the whiten ing face drains his canteen to the last precious drop. He Is going to have strength to get to the front with the regiment. Then, if he dies, he will die in the line. " 'Chuck-a-chuck,' the very battery wheels put a defiant tone In the old monotony of the wheels. 'Clipplty clippity!' Another galloping trooper goes down the column In a cloud of dust, but this one is garlanded with cheers, and his face lights with a grim smile. 'You'll find somebody that'll make you holler when you ketch up with the cavalry:' floats back over his shoulder. 'It's his deal,' laughs a sol died, pulling his belt a buckle hole tighter. Tramp, tramp, tramp. "A single rifle shot. Sharp, pene trating, anger and surprise in Its de fiant Intonation. A score of excited echoes clattering after it from hill and forest. A thrill of nervous tension runs through the column that closes the ranks In orderly formation. Quick, terse orders. Absolute discipline in every movement. The crooked rail fences on either side the road are lev eled as the hands of the men touch them. The column double quicks out of the road to right and left: the curtain ing woods swallow it. The men drop on their faces. They are lost from sight. The skirmishers, deploying as they run. swarm down the hill slope to the front like a nest of angry hornets. Pictures Battle "A handful of shots leap Into the air. They have found the pickets. A fitful rain of skirmish firing; a shot here; a half dozen; a score; silence; another half dozen shots: a cheer and a volley. Far away, ringing in clear and close, drifting away almost nut of hearing; off to the right; swinging back to the left; coming in closer; more of them; gathering: in numbers and increasing In their intensity; a few field guns feeling the woods; a long roll of mus ketry; ringing cheers; thunders of awakening batteries on right and left; the line leaps to Its feet and rushes with fixed bayonets to meet the on coming charge; the yellow clouds have changed to blue and gray; sheafs of flre gleaming through the trees; sickles of death gathering in the bloody har vest: shouts of defiance and screams of agony: shouting of 'the old-fashioned colonels' who ride with their men; bayonets gleaming about the smoke grimed muzzles of the guns; men fighting men swarming like locusts Into the embrasures; saber and bayonet, sponge staff and rammer, lunge, thrust, cut and crashing blow; men driven out of the embrasures and over the parapet like dogs before lions, turning again with yelp and snarl and fighting their way back again like blooded bull dogs, holding every inch they gain; hand to throat and knife to heart: hurrying re inforcements racing to the crater of smoke and flame from every direction; a long wild cheer, swelling Into fierce exultant cadences over and over and over— the reversed guns, like the hounds o?%kctaeon, baying at the heels and of the masters rending the bodies of tho masters for whom but late they fought: a white flag fluttering like a frightened dove amidst the smoke and flame, the fury and anguish, the hate and terror, the madness and death of the hell of passion raging over the sodden carth — the fort is ours!" A two-dollar hat and three-dollar shoes, And a flvedollar suit of Jeans— "I bought that suit." he said, "to make My extremes Just equal my means." —Chicago Tribune. LOS ANGELES HERALD:. MONDAY MORNING, MAY 27, 190?. BISHOP CONATY ASSISTS AT MASS FORTY HOURS' ADORATION IS BEGUN AT CATHEDRAL Rev. Joseph McManus Preaches Ser mon, in Which He Reviews Origin of Devotional Period Now Being Held Yesterday morning the forty hours' adoration opened at the Cathedral of St. Vlblana with a solemn mass in which Bishop Conaty assisted. Kuv. Joseph McManus preached the sermon, In which he said, in part: "Three hundred and fifty years have rolled over the history of the church since the devotion we share In today took shape and form in the mind of an Italian priest. It was in the days of the great desertion of the sixteenth century. The storm which had lons been gathering now burst over the fair lands of Christendom. Baneful heresy seemed to strike deep root in many hitherto faithful lands. "The beliefs and practices of the church, which practically all Christian lands accepted for 1500 years, were now bitterly assailed. The most sacred of all her doctrines, that which surround ed the blessed sacrament, was attacked with special malice and profanity. "In the midst of this general desola tion, a humble priest of Milan resolved to throw open the door of the taber nacle and place the Lord of Hosts upon a humble throne for the adora tion of his yet faithful followers. For forty hours that adoration was con tinued in honor of His forty hours' sojourn in the tomb. "Four years later in the year 1580 Plus IV approved of the custom of having the blessed sacrament exposed for forty hours. In 1592 Clement Vltt Introduced the practice Into the city of Rome and so arranged that the ex position was commenced In one church when It had ceased In another. Little by little the devotion spread through other countries of Europe, and today it has won the allegiance of every Catholic land. Stir Slumbering Faith "What does the church expect of us. her children, on this occasion? She calls upon us to stir up our slumber ing faith, to enliven our hope and in fluence our love. We ought to stir up our faith by every consideration which Catholic teaching suggests to us. Here upon the altfcr is the Babe of Bethle hem, the Child of Nazareth and the transfigured Lord of Thabor. We are lnj^he presence of the Man of Sorrows whose body was broken and whos? blood was shed. We have In our midst none less than the God who created us, the Savior Who redeemed us, the Christ who will Judge us. "This Is our faith. Who, then, shall place limits to our hope or our love? In the blessed euchrist Christ is pres ent with infinite graces and favors for each one of his children. "You stand by the seashore and look out on its vast expanse. You know you can draw forth its waters at will and never visibly diminish It. We come to Jesus in the most holy euchrist and faith tells us that there is no limit to the graces we may receive. It is not merely something which seems bound less as the ocean, but Is the Infinite himself. Strength for the Weak "If we are weak, we can here find strength. If we are faint-hearted, hera Is the source of courage. If temptsi tlons assail us and seem to engulf us, then there Is he who stilled the wind and the waves and brought a great calm. "Brethren, let our love be in pro portion to our faith and hope. Let us rally around the God of the altar and show him we are still capable of re turning Borne little love for the Infinite love he has shown to man In the most holy sacrament of his love." Rev. Francis Conaty preached at the vesper service last night. The adora tion will close with a solemn mass Tuesday morning. SENTENCED TO BATHE FOUR TIMES AN HOUR Special to The Herald. PHIADELPHIA, May 26.— "Hully gee, Judge, you don't mean dat, does you?" "Yes, I do, most emphatically, and when you are through with it you will certainly be clean for on°e since your birth, at any rate." This bit of dialogue occurred in the Twenty-eighth district police station at the conclusion of the trial of Ton! To basco on the charge of being a worth less bum. This morning he was taken before Magistrate Rau and the magistrate was shocked by his appearance. "When did you have a bath?" asked the magistrate. "Not since last summer," was the reply. "When did you wash your face last?" "About six weeks ago." "When did you wa: h your - ands?" "I don't remember the last time.* "Well, I guess you'll remember the next time," said Magistrate Rau, "for I am going to send you to the house of correction with positive instructions on your commitment that you have a bath every fifteen minutes during the day for the first week, and every day thereafter during your stay. 1 guess that will make up some little for lost time, and It may jet you in the habit and teach you that you must be clean to bi healthy." Ton! went weeping to the cell room, where he was given a little warm water, soap and towel as a starter. As the water touched his face he winced, but he had to take his med iclm. EXPECTS PROPHECY TO BE FULFILLED RESULTS MAY COME FROM THE HAGUE William Horace Day Preaches Memo* rial Sermon to G. A. R. Pott and Woman's Relief Corps on Peace At the Fira,t Congregational church William Horace Day preached a Mem orial Sunday sermon on "American Patriotism and the World's Peace." The Stanton Post of the Grand Army and the relief corps attended the service in a body. The little children of the Kindergarten church led the processional with little flags draped In black. The boys' brigade In uniform. In command of Leslie G. Bryant, and the Baraca Fife and Drum corps, re ceived the veterans outside the church and escorted them to their seats. The church was beautifully decorated with flags under the direction of Mrs. Char lotte R. Wood. The choir rendered Kip ling's -Recessional" and Fred Gunster sang a tenor solo. The text was from the second chapter of Isaiah, "Neither shall they learn war any more." Dr. Day said In part: "The prophet's promise of peace 750 years before Christ has been the world's ideal ever since. A time when a tribunal based upon Jehovah's law shall settle international disputes In stead of the appeal to war has never ceased to inspire. Three hundred years later Joel reversed the message. The law had been given to Moses expanded and applied through nearly a thousand years codified by Ezra, but the power and prestige of the nation were too feeble to command the world's atten tion. Joel called such an age to 'Hal low a. war, beat plowshares Into swords and pruninghooks into spearsATo fight that Israel might again be' strong enough to commend her law to the nations. Today we are coming to see that American patriotism while serving the nation in war was no less making possible the world's peace. Patriotism and World's Peace "1. American valor in the service of the nation. "The first service of our valor was for the liberation of the nation. Of the wars in which we have engaged four have been wars of liberation. The Revolution was for the liberation of the land. The war of 1812 won the Hberat4on of the sea. The Civil war gained the liberation of the enslaved at home and the Spanish war liberated the oppressed in Cuba. The greatest of all, that which did most for the na tion, was the Civil war. It was the supreme test of American valor. It cast the life of common soldier and great leader. We honor our illus trious dead because of their sacri fice and because that sacrifice was vi carious. They followed in the way of the cross and reverently we may say they gave their bodies to be broken and their blood to be shed that the na tion might be saved. Great as is the service of American valor in the ser vice of the nation it rendered even greater in the cause of the world's peace. "2. American valor in the Service of the world's peace. "The United-States is the only great nation in human history whose whola national life has been devoted to peace, not to war. Our busf^ess has been to produce, not to destroy. The sneer of the European 'aristocrats that we are a nation of shop keepers is founded on a fact, and that fact should be the glory of the nation's life. Peace is our business. The ancient peace ideal of Israel's prophet has been often at tempted. • "William Perm In 1693 proposed a European diet as a substitute for war. Alexander I of Russia worked for a holy alliance, Napolean 111 and others worked for the same end, but each proved abortive and war remained the method of settling the nations' dis putes. In the fullness of time you of the Grand Army had done your gi gantic task, soldier and sailor had per ished and the chastisement of the world's peace had fallen upon you and your comrades. The Spanish war had served to arouse Europe to what had happened; when God put it into the heart of Nicholas of Russia to attempt what had so often failed, there was a factor to be accounted, the nation of peace had come to her own. America's Right "The Pari3 Temps, while Jeering at The Hague conference as a way to uni versal peace, saw the great fact that 'The United States entered for the first time as a world power." And Mr. Stead wrote, 'The right of America to lead In this great cause Is nowhere more fully recognized than by the nations of the Old World.' Without belittling the splendid work of other men and nations r am pressing the point that without the contribution which Amer ican valor made possible these others could not have gained the goal. "An astute writer said 'But for the American delegation the atmosphere of diplomatic suspicion at The Hague would scarcely have been dispelled.' Again at a time of deadlock when the German emperor stood like a wall across the path it was an American who must needs go to Berlin to help clear the way. There is about to as semble a second Hague conference at which Isaiah's Ideal may very possibly be realized. "To prepare opinion for its work and make advance possible a great peace and arbitration congress has Just been held in New York. Instead of the way of subterfuge and diplomacy for wak ing headway the American way has been tried, that of progress through publicity. We belittle mere talk and men said the New York meeting would accomplish nothing. Those sessions had hardly begun before the world be gan to express amazement at the re sults. If the second Hague conference succeeds It will be because American valor served the world peace when It served the nation." VARIETIES OF THE LIAR According to a list prepared by tile Alb'inv Argus some months ago, the preal dent ha i called Herbert W. Bo wen a "dl— ingenuous" liar, William E. Chandler a "deliberate and unqualified" liar, At ton B. Parker an "atrocious" liar, a. O. Shields an "inventive" liar, Bellamy Storer a "peculiarly perfidious" liar, John F. Wal lace an "utter" liar and Henry M. Whit ney a "deliberate" liar. If this catalogue be correct, if the president really did apply such epithets to the persons in question, Mr. Harrlman may not feel any excessive diSßatisfaction at being classed with "d« lberate and willful" untruth. The presi dent and he simply disagree as to the facts in the case. One retains one Im pression of th« reputed episode, the other a contrary impression.— Providence Journal.

Two men who were In their company at the time and who stated that they were the husbands of the women, were arrested at the same time. They gave their names as W. H. Cahlll and J. J. Bell. They were booked on suspicion. The ball of the four prisoners was fixed at $160 each. Ball for the women was furnished. COMMANDER BOOTH TALKS TO THRONG FRAIL LITTLE WOMAN MAKES STIRRING ADDRESS "Song of the City" Is Topic of Head of thu Salvation Army in the United States Evangeline Booth, one of the frailest looking of women, commander of the Salvation Army in America, held one of the largest audiences that ever filled Temple Auditorium spellbound for an hour and a half yesterday afternoon. The audience of men, women and child ren assembled long before tho opening of the service and hundreds stood dur ing the entire service and many were turned away without gaining admis sion to the huildins:. Evangeline Booth, commander, daughter of General Booth, is well known the world over, and especially in the United States, where she is in command of the work of the Salvation Army. Miss Booth has a striking personality and yesterday afternoon her frail body responding to her supreme strength of will showed no signs of fatigue after giving an address of an hour and a half during which stillness reigned with the exception of the applattse that marked her progress. Is a Wonderful Woman In any light and from any standpoint Miss Booth is considered a wonderful woman. The daughter of the founder of the world-wide army work, herself consecrated in her infancy to the work, she commenced when only a child in the great work which she has carried on so successfully. She entered the slums of London and there sold matches for some time to gain practical experience In the life of the slums, and she will give these ex periences in her lecture, "Racs," tonight at Simpson auditorium. Later she had charge of the army work in Canada and was then placed in command of the United States. Miss Booth is a tall woman, slim and supple in form, with a rather thin, patrician face which is almost forgot ten In the beauty and charm of her eyes, large and brown, with a personal magnetism that has seldom been equalled by public speakers. Her face is surrounded by a mass of fluffy brown hair, and she is attired In a severely plain blue suit, with the ensign of her office, the plain color of the army, and a broad band of white draped from her right shoulder. As Miss Booth entered the auditorium she was met by cheers and the waving of handkerchiefs all over the building. Sing Old Tune The service was opened by the sing ing of "All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name." The Salvation Army Dand led the singing with the Salvation Army tune for the hymn which was not recog nized by the majority of the congrega tion, and at the second verse Col. French announced that the usual tune wouW be carried out. whereupon the large auditorium echoed and re-echoed, with the hymn sung by thousands of people familiar with the old tune. This was followed by prayer by Bri gadier Page and a selection by the Y. M. C. A. quartet. Commissioner KUby made a short address, Introducing the chairman of the afternoon. Rev. Mr. Harper, who acted in place of his brother, Mayor Harper, who welcomed Miss Booth to the city, and Introduced the commander. Miss Booth had been announced to speak on "The Grand March Past," but instead she took for her topic "The Song of the City." It is a custom of Miss Booth, who Is a great lover of music, to inquire on entering a city what is the popular song and to have sacred words set to the tune. Yester day afternoon she spoke of the great epoch-making songs that have carried men through times of distress. The speaker expressed great delight at being again In the City of the Angels. "I think your city is rightly named," said Miss Booth, "for you have re ceived me. as only angels could. I hav.-s been looking forward to my visit to Los Angeles and I am so glad to be with you again." Influence of Music Then Miss Booth took up her topic of the afternoon and said in part: "Nobody would question the all prevailing influence of music. God was so great a lover of It that when ha created heaven and earth he filled them with it. In this world we move about as one great orchestra. There is some thing tn the rising of the sun, and something in its setting to tell of the Master. The evening has Its song, the stars sing their own song and the roar- Ing cataract tell of the glories of the Creator, and all nature sings for his glory. The hum of nature is a great anthem of praise to Its Maker. The forest and water chant of him, the thunders drum it and the ocean jieals it forth like a mighty organ whlta all nature rings Us music everywhere. "The music of the world! What lip is swift enough to speak of the music of the world? All nature has bowed down to the Impassioned soul of music. The music of the concert, of the opera and the music of the world Is sweet, but I have one great challenge to the world's music. I cannot call back a lingering tone of immortality that tells of the heart when It swells up with sorrow. The music of the dance is pretty, its excited step whirs around and around until the new day comes, then the piano is closed, the high note Is hushed and then there Is nothing re maining. Opera and concert are up lifting while they last, but the curtain falls and there is nothing left when life billows up with trouble. Then we listen for the strains but we hear them not. No Pride in Triumph ■ "Rossini's masterpiece of composi tion handed to the music world, 'Wil liam Tell,' crowned him a master.

At the great triumphal note his friends expected to see the composer filled with pride, but Instead his eyes swelled up with tears and he threw out his hands and said: 'I would give It all for a few days of the past and peace.' How many, when we have come in possession of that for which we have strlved, find that It has cost so much of principle, conscience or vital energy that would say 'I would give it all for a few days of the past?' "But not so of the chord of life, of the song of Immortalllty. I hear its note of Immortality through the ages and through the long, troublous centuries the hymns live on with Just as much vitality, century after century. The note of redemption time "cannot dim, storms cannot sweep away and !he emptiness of the grave cannot dim Its story. "No pen could tell of the songs of the church, the sobs of the penitents, the martyrs, saints and the awakening souls. Where Is there a stretch of heaven that could hold the story of the hymn, 'Just as I Am,' or of our late president who winged his way to glory on 'Nearer, My God, to Thee'? What angel could tell the history of the im mortal hymn 'Rock of Ages.' Rock Of Ages "Throw open the doors of all the libraries of all the nations and let us marshal down the list of different ex pressions. Of the countless procession, there are books of every character and description. In the front ranks of the procession we find 'Rock of Ages.' We hear of books that have had ten, fif teen and twenty editions, but after their march they turn aside. Then to the pyramid of all these volumes and at the very top I find the 'Rock of Ages,' which history tells us Is the only one that has been translated Into as many languages as one, and that is the Bible. "The Bible reaches out and takes 'Rock of* Ages' by the hand. To the prince and the pauper It has been a solace, from ten thousand churches It has gone up as the most precious In cense. The woodman has sung It In the woods; the tired factory girl has sung it at the wheel; the mariner has lifted up his voice with the tune in the storm; little children have been hushed with It upon their mother's bosom. "The gi -at unshakable eternal rock, I shall want it to die on and you will want it to die on. 'Rock of Ages," to which my mother clung, 'Rock of Ages, cleft for me. I will hide myself— blessed be heaven for such a gospel. In this redemption song I hear the note of the penitent. "One morning, almost when a new day was breaking, a young and beau tiful girl of 18 tripped from her car riage and went to her room, where she threw her beautiful opera cloak across a chair and walked the room attired as she was in her beautiful ball gown of white satin, on which were beautiful Jewels gleaming, and in her hair the Jewels seemed to be playing hlde-and seek. She paces back and forth. This young girl, beautiful, accomplished and popular, asks what it all counts for. Origin of Song " 'What is It all to me when my heart aches? The dance was never more swift, but what Is It to me when my heart aches? I remember when I knelt at my mother's knee and what kind of a woman was I to be? "Then this young girl went to her little desk and, kneeling, still In her beautiful gown, took pen and paper, and dipping her pen Into the ink, I think there must have been something of Immortality In it, wrote, 'Just as I am, without one plea, but that thy blood was shed for me.' Ink and tears were all mixed up and she smiled until her tears turned Into drops of dew. "The redemption song is triumph in death, the one dark valley through which all must pass. One great hour of good by Is death. It Is like sailing away on a ship. The near and dear ones come to say good by and wave until the last, leaning forward to call the last message, but the three bells will ring like three death knells In the heart. The book Is closed, its death's last slow march to the grave. Is there aught that can make us say, 'Oh, death, where is thy victory? Oh, grave, where Is thy sting?' Yes, yes, ten thousand sing the Redemption song, the hurrahs and hosannahs of the redemption song." Following the address of Miss Booth, Mr. and Mrs. Baker, the blind singers, rendered a selection in which the com mander was greatly Interested, and during the final verse Mtss Booth, with her long, flowing cape of blue lined with red falling In graceful folds, went over and spoke to the blind sing ers, asking them to sing a triumphant song of Christianity, which they did. W. E. McVey made a short address in behalf of the Y. M. C. A. and the service closed with benediction by Commissioner Kilby. "But," protests* Miss Jokeley, "I as sure you the stories I've been telling you were original with me. I shouldn't think a gentleman vould doubt my word." "Well," replied Brlghtley, "I con sider It more gentlemanly to doubt your word than to believe you old enough to have originated those stories."— Catholic Standard.
