Once more the veterans of the Civil War have passed through our streets In their memorial parade and, al though it is .S) years since the w.ir closed, there wore 32 of the old sol diers strong enough to join in the march from the City Hall to thfl Knights of Pythias building on (irant avenue The survivors of that great army were the young and the strong of those days of long ago But the years are overtaking them and not many more Decoration Days will be ob served until the last of the preserv ers of the union shall be called Yet a nation, thankful for their deeds of heroism and sacrifice, will continue to remember them and their graves too will be decorated. The "old boys" link us to the past and are p living reminder of the bloodiest struggle in the history of nations They are a further remind or that the deepest animosities can bo wiped out bv time In many of the parades to today, the Confeder ates Join with the Union soldiers. Thi6 has been the practice In Ogden, the Southern veterans being invited to parficipatp in the ceremonies. INVENTOR OF FLYING MACHINE. The country had quite n laugh when Dr. S P. Langley of the Smith sonlan Institution in 1897 attempted to fly in o heavier-tban-air machine which he had constructed and con veyed to an island in the Potomac river The newspaper men who wero present did not spare the old man the humility of describing in detail his failure. But on Thursday last, at Elmira, New York, Glenn Curtis, the aviator, flew in "Langley's folly." and demonstrated that, after all. Langle) was the inventor of the flying ma chine A report of the event says: The crude flying machine, which fell into the Potomac river when Dr Langley. f t b Inventor, attempted to fly In it. was wheeled from Its hanger early thl6 morning, the pilot immedi ately climbed into the seat and was away under much the same conditions as would prevail In a flight of the latest model aeroplane The High' was short but successful. The Langley machine but little re sembles the trim and powerful flyers of today, but, in Its crudp state, it combines the basic principles of avia tion, and after many years of neglect the "old junk" comes into Its own. giving Its aged inventor his deserved place among the recognized pioneers of aviation Langley made the one fatal error of trying to catapult the flyer Into th air with the aid of ponderous springs, but he only succeeded in wrecking the machine. Had he tried the method pursued today of running the machine along the ground and allowing it 10 rise gradually In the air. there Is lit tle doubt he would have made the first flight In a heavier than air ma chine. The antiquated machine was sent to Hammondsport about two months ago. Scarcely a change was made in its parts The surface of the wings which had suffered from long stor age, were replaced Other minor parts replaced were duplicates of the ori ginal. The machine was driven on Thursday by the old motor built by Charles Manly EM-FOUR RECEIVE DIPLOMAS FROM HIGH SCHOOL i , i - Amid the plaudits of their many relatives and friends, sixty of Og den s charming daughters and twenty-four of her stalwart Bons received their certificates of graduation from the hand6 of Superintendent J. M. Mills, near the close of the most aus picious event In which thus far in their lives they had ever been par- j ticipants The event was the twenty-second I annual commencement exercises of the Ogden high school, held In the Orpheum theater. The graduates, I eighty-four in number, were seated j semi-circle of chairs three rows; the young ladles tastefully gowned in white and the. young men In black suits, with white necktleB. A number of palms and large bouquets of peo riies artistically arranged, together with an immense O. H. S pennant, formed a background and a number of pennants won by the class, during its four years at the school were draped In prominent positions on the wings of the stage setting and over the front of the boxes. The whole formed one of the most charming pictures ever seen on the Orpheum stage and when tho curtain was rais ed for the opening number, the audi ence broke into an ovation of applause. The Ogden high school orchestra, under the direction of Marilla Hun ter, opened the exercises with an ap propriate and well played selection and the Invocation was offered by Rev. H. D. Zimmerman, The third number was the singing by the class of the following "Class song" the words and music of which were com posed by Miss Mattle Guernsey for the occasion : Come and Join the farewell song of school, Homage to our Alma Mater pay, Come and pledge with hearts and voices too Love for dear old O H. S today. Raise the golden cup of memory. Drain its sparkling waters to the depths Where, mixed with crystal grains of 1 happines ' Wc taste, at parting bitter sweet regreL Here's to Ogden High school, May she live to build A future greaL upon a past With high achievement filled And may her students' loyal pride Ne'er grow dim or slack. But burn forever with staunch love Tor the Orange and the Black! So. hail to our happy school days Youth's strong gallant buoy. In years to come we'll ne'er forget Their meauro in our joy. Come and Join thp farewell song of school. Homage to our Alma Mater pay. Come and pledge with hearts and voices too Love for dear old O. H. S. alway. Now we join the world's tumultuous swell, To paths of fame and glory hi Again, dear guardian of our youthful dreams. To thee, denr Ogden High, Good yc, goodbye. At its conclusion, the number was roundly applauded The salutatory by Sidney Winter followed and without question or an undue desire to flatter, it must he said that In delivery was one of the best that has been given at a com mencement in recent years Mr Win ter had his subject well in hand and spoke his thoughts in a strong, clear tone of voice, with excellent enuncia tion and in a convincing manner At the conclusion of his talk, he received a well deserved nnd enthusiastic round of applause A double quartette composed of the Misses Oertel Rich, Katherlne Falck Ruth Douglass and Gertrude Weather by and Messrs Leland Tribe Harmon Barton. Byron hittemorc and Claude Farr gave a rendition of the song, "My Heart at Thy Dear Voice.' from "Samson nnd Delilah,' by Saint Saens. The next number was the declama tion "Gentlemen! The King' ' by Robert Barr, given by Miss Lillian Plygare To dwell upon the merit of Miss Flygare's rendition of the num ber, would be but to repeat the many compliments she has received in sim ilar work during her term at the high school. She received hearty ap plause at Its close. Another of the pleasing number? was the playing Schubert s "Marche Militalre." by a trio composed of the Misses Mary Parmley, violin; Helen Hunter, cello, and Mattie Guernsey, piano The number was rendered In excellent manner and was well re ceived Miss Ruth Johnson, the valedicto rian of the class, had chosen for the theme ol her address, "Music and Its Appreciation ' In the composition she brought out the happiness exist ent in the life of an individual or a people in whose hearts dwelt a love for the divine art, In a manner that showed hpr to possess not only a rarely artistic temperament, but much literary ability. While the first part of her talk could not he heard all over the auditorium, but her expres sion of thought soon brought the audience into close attention, so that most of the address was heard by all and her efforts received marked rec ognition in hearty applause at the conclusion. Following the valedictory came the event long anticipated by the grad uatlng class, the presentation of the diplomas. Preparatory to this feature. Principal Henry Peterson, on behalf of the faculty, formally Introduced the class to the board of education, which was seated In two of the low er boxes, and the audience. His talk was brief but to the point In part, he said that the class was the larg-j est one In the history of the school and each member had sixteen or, more units to his or her credit He also said that the members were both morallv and intellectually worthy and they were known at the school as; "The class that did things ' Preceding the performance of his! official duty Superintendent Mills stated that It was pleasure to him to be able to act in such a capacity for so large a class, that he was proud of the graduates, that he knew they felt pnjud of their having been found worthy of graduation and that their parents also felt proud of their ac i complisbrnnt. The diplomas, which were each ' neatly tied with a long bow of orange and black silk ribbon, were present j ed and each member of the class re ' ceived a goodly round of applause in accepting the reward of the four years' study The closing number was the sing ing of the "Ogden high school song," j by the graduating class and the audi- j ence. The following composed the grad uating class; Class 1913' 2 Juanita Ballantyne. Harmon Bar ton. Raven Burrupp, William Brus-1 sard, Emily Carr, Doris Chase Ruth Douglass.

Thrilling refugee stories vr.?re brought to San Francisco a few davs ago by forty passengers who arrived from Mexican ports on the Pacific Mail steamer Newport.
