Copyright, 1890, by tho Author,
America lias no Westminster nblioyor
St. Paul's to onslirino its illustrious
dead. Their graves nro scattered far and
wido throughout tho laud. Perhaps this
lias bceu ordered wisely. Such sentries
of memory and suggestion sprcud broad
cast servo a hotter purpose in such a
laud as ours than if tlioy were, concen
trated in ouo vast gallery of tombs, a
nation's pantheon though that might be.
It sometimes seems that thcro would
havo been a peculiar fitness if thoso of
our groat r-oldiers whoso f anio is especial
ly associated with particular battlefields
could havo been buried in them as, for
example, Meado at Gettysburg, McChd
lan at Autietam aud Thomas at Chieka
inauga. Iu theso great national ceme
tery parks tho most eloquent monuments
of their fanio aro to bo found. There,
sleeping with tho armies of obscurodead
whoso hands aud hearts did tho work of
their leadership, their ashes would havo
found tho most adequato embalming.
But perhaps what is is best. Yet ono
fancies that tho work of Memorial day
would havo had a peculiar significance
in smothering tho graves of an army
witli flowers nud lent fresh poiut to the
old couplet :
Only thn memories of the Just
Uracil swift ami blossom In tho dust.
Tho art of tho sculptor has attempted
tho presentment in marblo and bronzo of
mauv of tho ureat men whoso swords
flashed so vividly in that wonderful four
years which shoot up liko an Alpine
peak out of our history. Each year adds
somo now imago to tho national portrait
gallery. Not a few of theso aro worthy
of tho greatness of tho subject. Such,
for instance, is tho Farragut Btatuo in
New York. But it is a depressing fact
that many of them reflect littlo credit on
tho nation, and somo of them actually
bolittlo tho greatness which they design
to commemorate. Thero seems to havo
bceu a slight awakening of tho public
conscience in this respect, however. Tho
fact that tho congressional committeo in
whoso charge tho award of tho Sherman
Btatuo to bo erected in Washington was
placed found no model fully worthy is
an indication of it.
But beautiful and touching as is tho
desiro to honor tho great dead by sculp
tured figures erected in public places,
that men may gazo upon them and thrill
with the lesson of their lives, thero is
something after all that comes closer to
tho heart. It is in tho subtlo and preg
nant thought that all distinctions ceaso
in tho presenco of death. That tho pri
vato or tho general did his best to do a
noblo aud a worthy deed is whero tho
honor lies. Tho blazo of famo is a flash
in tho pan without such a tost. So,
however wo may pour out oblations of
honor aud gratitude at the tombs of tho
great, tho tenderer sentiments should
linger at tho graves of tho unknown
dead. Tho great soldiers themselves, if
they could open their lips, would say so.
A glanco at tho resting places of somo
of tho distinguished personages who
blazod tho traces of thoir famo in tho
great civil war will servo as an example
of tho wide disposition of their remains.

I-'or Instance, a sdlm IlKiire looks inneh

former modes, as lundliiK to make tlum
appear heavy nnd bulky, takliiK away
from the symmetrical lines of the tlKiire.
I-'or the latter class the Kmplre Is, n

thn shoulders, ill oimlnu' over the top of the
skln-tlKlu sleeve, which Is usually a mass
of erosswIsH wrinkles, and made to extend
over tho hands In a lomr point.
A pretty fashion Is to cover tho entire
lower arm with lace, tilled In over the
foundation to match the puff. Another
charming model of tho Umpire has u Har
lan puff hiuIiikIhk from a lltted lowerarin;
a band of embroidery Joins the puff to the
lower arm, and Klves a Mulshed effect.
Tho "sectioned" bishop sleeve Is wonder
fully chle and Is n favorite style for thin

four portions, all of which are joined by
bands of lnco or openwork embroidery.
A deep band of shlrrlmv tits It closely
