DAUGHTER PULLS CORD TARDY RECOGNITION OF THE NA TION’S DEBT TO ITS BRAVE DEFENDERS. Gettysburg, Pa. —Monday, Memorial Day, was the day of tardy honor to the "regular” at Gettysburg. An imposing shaft of granite, erect ed by Congress to the memory of those of the regularly enlisted forces who fell in the three days’ fighting about the Round and the Bloody Angle, was unveiled by the Presi dent’s daughter, Miss Helen H. Taft, while President Taft himself paid tribute to officers and men of the United States army, past and pres ent. The President put himself squarely ou record as opposed to any reduc tion in the present standing army. He told of the prejudice which often has arisen against the possible aggres sions of a regular army and a pro fessional soldiery, and of the corres ponding difficulty in arousing that love and pride of the army which ex presses itself today and has frequent* ly expressed itself In the past in be half of the navy. The President asserted that the services of the regular army have never been commemorated adequate ly by Congress or by the nation. “The profession of arms has always I been an honorable one,” he declared. “All honor to the regular army of the United States. Never in its history has it had a stain upon its escutch eon.” Four regiments of the regular army were here to escort the President and to participate in the exercises. There also was a personal escort to the Presi dent made up of veterans of the regu lar army who fought in the Gettysburg campaign. The President arrived shortly before 10 o’clock and was taken for a drive over the battlefields. At several points he alighted and stood on the promin ence overlooking the beautiful valley and the hazy mountains in the far dis tance. Miss Taft came with the secretay of war and Mrs. Dickinson. In the party from the capitol also were many dis tinguished officers of the army. The ceremonies of the unveiling were simple. Miss Taft pulled the silken cord which released the flags draped about the monument, and a mo ment later the President began his ad dress, saying: “We are gathered at this historic spot today to dedicate a monument to the memory of the officers and the en listed men of the regular army who gave up their lives for their country in the three days’ battle. It Is but a tar dy recognition of the nation’s debt to Its brave defenders, whose allegiance was purely to the nation, without local color or strengthening of state or muni cipal pride. "At West Point we have been able to prepare a bo'dy of professional sol diers. well trained to officer an army, and numerous enough at the opening of the Civil War to give able command ers to both sides of that internecine strife. "On the side of the North many of the officers were drafted to command volunteer troops from the states, while the regular army, aggregating about 10,000 at the opening of the war, was increased to about 25,000 during its first year. "More than half this army was en gaged in the battle of Gettysburg. Time does not permit me to mention the names of the heroes of the regular army whose blood stained this historic field, and whose sacrifices made the Union victory possible.” Assembly Goes to Nashville.

Lawton of the Mid dlesex probate court told me a story the other day of an American minis ter who was spending his sabbatical year traveling abroad. Arriving in London, he made every effort to get an intimate view of the two branches of parliament in session. Of course no stranger Is allowed on the floor of the house of lords, but the minister not knowing this, and with the usual amount of American push, tried to make his way in. There is a rule, however, that servants of the various lords may be admitted to speak to their ministers. Seeing the minister walking boldly in, the doorkeeper asked: “What lord do you serve?” “What lord?” repeated the aston ished American, "the lord Jehovah!” For a moment the doorkeeper hesi tated and then admitted him. Turn ing to an assistant standing near, he said: "He must mean one of those poor Scotch lairds.” —Boston Record. TORE HIS SKIN OFF In Bhreda—ltching Waa Intense- Sleep Was Often Impossible. Cured by Cuticura in Three Weeks. | "At first an eruption of small pus . tules commenced on my hands. These spread later to other parts of my body, and the itching at times was intense, so much so that I literally tore the skin off in shreds in seeking relief. The awful itching interfered with my work considerably, and also kept me awake nights. • I tried several doc tors and used a number of different ointments and lotions but received practically no benefit. Finally I set tled down to the use of Cuticura Soap, Cuticura Ointment and Cuticura Pills, with the result that in a few days all Itching had ceased and in about three weeks’ time all traces of my eruption had disappeared. I have had no trou ble of this kind since. H. A. Kruts koff, 5714 Wabash Ave., Chicago, 111., November 18 and 28, 1907.” Potter Drag St Cbcw. Corp.. Sols Props., Boston. UNKIND FAKE.
