After a vocal duet, "I Will Magnify

Mr. J. W. Kingston, Rev. Dr. Cameron
Mann, rector of Grace Episcopal church,
delivered a brief address.
"1 do not know." he said, "why two
clergjmen have been invited to make ad
di esses on this occasion unless it be in a
professional capaclt, as ministers of the
Gcspel, representing the idea of an immor
tality of the human soul. You are assem
bled here in that hope to-dnv. You believe
In human responsibilit and human im

lament the extinction of a human char
acter, but to revcrentlv bear testimony to
the virtues of jour dead ard commend
their example to the living."

Ex-Mayor Webster Davis delivered an el
oquent address, sa Ing, in irt
"On these memorial eiays, we realze that
In the mWst of life we are In death. Wi
are indeed too liable te forget In the hurrv
of business in this world that tho time will
surclv come -when wc ourselves mi po"!
bly be helpless ami suffering, on a lonelv
cat In some sick room or hospital In th
toll and turmoil of this life, and in the jwir
sirith of the fantastic phantom" of our
hopes, aspirations ami desires., wo too oft
en lose sight of the fact that tho time ma
dome when we will le sick. We determine
upon our plans, we lay out our work, we
arranger our programme for the long vista
of jears which, panorama-like, un'old? it
self before u. when suddenly, maybe with
out warning, our hve-s art" required of un,
awl the. bright an?J brilliant future fades
away into the black nothingness of death
Aral this, after nil, is nil we are certain of
in this world. Whv. even now, while I am
talking, 'Like mullled drums our hearts are
beating funeral marches to the grave'
"We grope along Ir the dark and inquire
w-liv we bave been brought here, and we
vVrly study what is to be the end of our
iicac, ami wliether we snail attain a. defi
ni. object or miss it altogether.
"P.ut though our life is hort and made
up of rail!-, and te-irs. of shadows and
Kun-him- vet It is long enough to do much
tool m thu world if we are so disponed
Then let us fill our lives with acts of kind
ness", and with deeds of charity and love,
the noblest deeds performed are those that
tell of sacrifices, and of devotion, and of
kindness done for our fellow men. Ever
effort put forth to lighten the burden upon
"tho bending lw-k of some unfortunate
brother, every effort to brighten the path
way of some poor girl who must work in
rtore or shop to support an Invalid father,
every effort to encourage the struggling
oung man and assist his as far as we
can in climbing over the boulders and
crags that obstruct his waj up the mount
ain of success; evcrj effort to wipe avvaj
the tear that glitters like a devvdrop on
the cheek of the widow and orphan, and
ever" act that ennobles humanlt and
makes the world better, are deeds that
will live in the immortality that blooms
bevond the grave, and will grow brighter
and brighter as tho ears are lost in the
eons of time.
"Theo are the best testimonials to the
rrotnrv of our brothers whose spirits have
lil -iwav to that celestial land where the
suffmngs of rave hearts are auaged
bj a gracious balm, and tired feet rest
beside still but living waters. Oh! our
loved ones peaceful sleep to-da in their
narrow homes in the quiet cemeterj, cov
ered each winter with winding sheets of
snow, and in the springtime with the soft,
sweet mantle of green, and decked by na
ture with wild flowers the sweetest em
blems of love and affection, which bloom
over each in impartial love, while the birds
amid the spreading: boughs of the willow
and the pine chant their sweetest songs as
a requiem to thoir memory."
Re. rnther W. .1. Dnlton.
After a vocal solo, "Abide With Me," by
Mr J. B. Iteton, and a selection by the
quartette, "Sleep Thy Last Sleep," P.ev.
Father William J. Dalton, pastor of the
Church of the Annunciation, delivered the
"Tradition's earliest tidings," he said,
"tell us that men from the beginning hav e
done as ou are doing to-day. The love
man bears for his loved ones is intensified
by death Their hearts have ever gone to
the new made grave.
"The object of jour gathering to-day is
a worthy one. Death spares nothing,
neither the voung nor old, the rich or
poor It mocks man's dearest hopes and
blights his fondest ambitions. And et it
Is a friend to humanlt, for it make" men
think. It tames and curbs them and sets
them face to face with life's realities It
Is iltting that in the midst of this busv life
ou paue to deck with flowers the graves
of our departed dead and look forward to
the realization of the immortality in which
you oil believe "
The lodge was then closed In due form,
and after the doolog had been sung Rev.
Dr. Mann pronounced the benediction.

Such Is the Interesting Polltlcnl Ru
mor In Connection "With the In

One of the Interesting political rumors
In connection with future appointments
urder Governor-elect Stephens is that he
has declared he intends to make his ad
m. nistratlon strictly a young man's p-1-m.nistratlon
and will select for appoint
ment only joung men, his friends, who
are acceptable to the powers that control
the local Democracy. This will be read
with interest by some of the old reliable
voters whose Democracy ha3 never been
questioned, but who are now to be rele
gated to the rear, so that young men may
share tho honors and responsibilities of
TMs will not simplify matters locally, as
seme of the most ambitious plehunters ate
rot to be classed with the voung men and
some of tho aspirants are not at all accept
able to the powers that now control tho
party machinery locally. Some of tho
people have insisted that Lonnie would
continue to build on the Stone platform
and keep In office such friends of Governor
Stone as had stood by the administration.
To such the declaration that none but the
oung friends of Mr. Stephens need apply
will come with disappointment.
It Is also stated in that connection that
the two men selected for police commis
sioners are William C. Scarritt and Will
iam M. Draffen, both oung men Mr.
Scarritt Is well known and Mr. Dnften
has taken an active interest In politics
slrce he came here three jears ago aj
assistant district attorne. His name has
been frequently mentioned as an applicant
for coal oil inspector, an office with more
pull and much more revenue and much
less contention than police commissioner,
and It is doubtful if he would accept tho
latter place at all.
