Pays Tribute to Veterans and Finds
Lessons From the War,
I speak to you to-night less as men of
Vermont than ns members of the Grand
Army which saved the Union. Rut, nt the
outset. I must pay a spiclal tribute to
your State. Vermont was not a rich State,
compared to many States, and she had
sent out so many tens of thousands of her
sons to the West that It was not improba- '
tile that n.s many men of Vermont birth '
served In the regiments of other States
ns In those of her own State. Yet, not
withstanding this drain, youi gallantStato
was surpassed by no other State of the
North, either in tho number of men ac- ,
cording to her population which she sent
into the army, or In the relative extent of
her financial support of the war. Too
much cannot be said of the high quality I
of the- Vermont soldiers; and one contrib
uting factor in securing this high qual
ity was the good sense which continually
sent recruits Into the already existing
regiments Instead of forming new ones.
It Is difficult to express the full measure
of obligation under which this country Is
to the men who from 'fil to 'HI took up'the '
most terilble and vitally necessary task
which has ever fallen to the lot of any
generation of men in the Western hemis
phere. Other men have rendered great
service to the country, but the service you
re ndered was not merely great--lt was In-
nleulablo. Other men by their lives or
tb. ir deaths have kept unstained our hou I
nr. have wrought marvels for our Interest,
have led us fnrwatd to triumph, or ward-!
eel off disaster from us; other men havo
marshaled nur ranks upward ncrnss the
steuiv slopes of greatness. Rut you did
more; for you saved us from annihilation.
e can feel proud of what others did only
because of what you did. It was given to
you when the mighty days came to dn
the mighty deeds the days called for, and
If your deeds had been left undone ,il
that had gone before would hnve turn, el
into apples of Sodom under our teeth.
The glrry of Washington and the majesty
nf Marshall would have crumbled Into
meaningless dust, if you and vour com
rades had not buttressed their work with
nnr strength of steel, your courage of
fire. The Declaration of Independence
would now sound like a wlndv platitude,
the Constitution of the I'nltrd Stabs
would ring as false as If drawn bv thn
Al I e SI. yes In the dayi, of the l-'rcncn
Tenor, If vn-ur stern valor had not proved
the truth of the ono and made good the
promise of tho other In our history
there havi been other victorious struggles
for rlglil. on the field nf battle and In clvlo
strife. Tn have lost 111 these other strui-'-glcs
would have meant bitter shamo and
grievous loss. Rut you fought In the nnn
struggle where failure meant death and
ib-strue Hon to our people; meant that our
wholo past history would bo crossed out
nf the records nf successful endeavnr with
the. rid and black lines nf failure; meant
that not one man In all this wlelo country
would now ho holding bis head upright as
a frc e c Itlzcn of a mighty and glorious re
public. All this you did .and therefore you aro
entitled to the homago of all men Who
have nut forgotten In their blindness ei
ther the awful nature of the crisis or tho
worth of prb eless service rendered In tho
hour of direst need.
You met n great need, that vanished
because of your success. You have left
us many memories to be prized forever
more. Vou have taught us many lessons,
and none moro lmpoitant than tho lesson
of brotherhood. The realization of tho
iinderlvlng brotherhood of our people, tho ,
fe eling that there should bo among them I
an essential unity of purpose and sym-1
pathy. must Lo kept close at heart If wo'
are to do our wnik well he-ro In our Amer
ican life. You havo taught us both by
what you did on the tented fields nnd by
what you have done since In civil llf u how .
this spirit of brotherhood can bo mado a ',
living, a vital force, I
In the first place, you have left us the I
light of brotherhood with tho gallant men
who wore tho gray In the ranks against
which you wero pitted. At tho opening ot
this new century nil of us, the children ot
n reunited country, havo a right to glory
li the countless deeds of vnlor done nllko
by the men of the North and the men of
the South. We can retain an evergrowing
sense of tho nil-Importance, not merely to
our pe oplo but to mankind of the Union
victory, while giving tho freest und heart
iest recognition to tho sincerity and self,
devotion ot thosn Americans, our fellow
countrymen, who then fought ngulnst tho
ntnrs In their courses. Now thcro Is nono
left. North or South, who does not take
joy and prldo tn tho Pnlon, and when,
three years nco, we once more, had to fnc.a
a forelfjn enemy, the heart of every trim
American thrilled with prldo to soo veter
ans who had fought In the Confederate
uniform once more nppenr under I'neln
Sam's colors, side by side with their for
mer foes, nnd leading tu victory under tho
IfimoiiN old flag tho sons of both those
who had worn the blue nnd of thosn who
hail worn thn gray.
Rut there are other ways lu which you
have taught tho lesson of brotherhood, In
our highly complex, highly specialized In-
dtistrlul life of to-day there ure many
tendencies for good, nnd there ure also
many tendencies for evil. Chief nmong I
the latter Is the wny In which, In great'
Industrial centres, tho segregation ot In-
teiests Invites a segregation of sym-
pathles. In our old American life, nnd In

day to this the men who fought In the
great war have Inevitably had In them a
spirit to which appeal for any lofty cause
could be maile with the enntident knowl

eager response. In the breasts of the mm

Everybody Has a Want
Ton probably hnve some little wnl
right now.
And nine chances out of ten, or ther
sbouts, you could dissipate the want by
usinc a Free Press want ad.
You may find our servants, and your
trrtvnd boys, and your gardeners, without
advertising, but a want nd costs so little
and Is so easy and so quick and such fi
gure method of Undine tho "cream" oi
the unemployed that you cannot afford t
rot alone without It
