t' p rrul pavement; following, thp vic
torious legions laden with spoils, ban
in rs Hying, trumpets sounding, amid
t ip wild plaudits of n ravenous mnl
tiludc. One could almost hear the shriek
of Joy, the harharlc shouts of delight
over the trophies won liy Homnn arms
from weaker peoples. One could imagine
the scenes of levelry ensuing: the fright
f d contests between captured gladiators
nnd the hundreds of wild beasts encaged
In caverns through which one still sliud
derlngly wanders, the remorseless turn
ing of thumbs to demand the death of the
nthletps who were forced to give their
lives to mnke festivity for the turbulent
populace, the orgies of drink and lust
continuing till day should break and the
1 undreds of thousands should sink Into
sleep from sheer exhaustion.
Such were the tributes paid by tho
plica n republic to connuetors In war
grand, Impressive, Inspiring In the only
M-nse then known of men! Hut whoso
was tho glory, whoso the victory, whose
tho reward? Was ever a monument

meagre portion of tho spoils. "Was ever
n wreath of flowers plncpd reverently

The paeans were for the general. The

Contrast such a spectacle with the
touching scene we have but now be
held In yonder peaceful cemetery! There
We celebrated no war of conquest, we
relolced over no spollntlon nf defonce
Jess men, women and rhlldren, we placed
no laurel upon the brow. In the flesh or
In craven stone, of an Insatiable con
queror' Wi leealled no clunking of
chains upon the ankles nf the vanquished

the beautiful episode nt Appomattox, and
nlmnst wo could and can now see the
gentle Grant plnclng hack In the hands
nf his defeated opponent the precious
Fwoid which the knightly Leo had sur
rendered that no more lives should he
racrlflced needlessly. Hut dear as Is the
recollection of our great generals, to
tlav's flowers are not for them alone:
they aro also for the Cnrlstlnn soldiers
rf the mighty Christian republic, the
rarnest men nnd youths who went forth
from this peaceful community, not In Joy
nf opportunity, but In adness nf heart,
responding to dutv's demand that they
offer their liver, that we as a nation
should continue united and therefore free.
It every devotion to country was puio

General Agents, Burlington, Vt.
so grcnt a war ns ours; never one so
noble! It was nn unity of volunteers
from the North. It win nn nrmy of vol
unteers from the South. Neither you
men nor those whom you opposed fought
for hire. You believed you were In the
right, and so you wore, as all now admit;
hut let us never forget that they also
thought they were 1 tho right and tho
many hnve paid In full the stupendous
penalty of tho frightful error of the few.
A FNITHD I'KOl'I.K.
Porno fought to save the fnlon, some
to break the shackles of slavery, some
doubtless were nnlniatod by prejudice
and sectional spirit. Hut underneath all
was nn Impulse more vital than any
Imposed by technical ntnttilcs which had
resulted In the Infliction of outrages up
o.i hummlty. It wns not opposed to the
Anglo-Paxon theory thit liberty must he
"tinder the liw." It wns a new Interpre
tation of freedom not the partial free
dom which forbids the subordination of
conse'ence to nny other Impelling force,
whether of liw of of )i.islott. And Its
embodiment In the heart of otir theory
n' government was essential to the
nnlntenancp of American Institution.
The cost could not be reckoned then,
could rtilv he estimated now; but, how
ever colossal the cost, who would ven
ture to doubt tint the result achieved
was infinitely greater, and that never
since could the (tiler have been so small
In men or money, in the only possible
manner, by force of nrms, the problem
was solved, the question settled for nil
time. Nn longer need a W'ehstor cry out
for "Liberty and I'nlon, now and forever,
one anil lincinirnMe." That condition we
have; that tbev and you won to their
and your ev."l'istlng glnrv, and time has
so cotnphlily Justified the achievement
thnt no man In this great land, North or
South, now Mould have It otherwise.
Whatever be our future problems, our
future tllals, we have nt least the ad
vantage and the satisfaction of 'nolnrc
them resolutely as a truly united nation
united not In nnme alone, hut In heart
nnd purpose nnd detei initiation tT prove
the wisdom of (Sod In setting up in Ibis
new land, as an example for all the
world, "a government of, for nnd by Un
people." tiu: rnnsKNT and tmh fftfui:.
It Is fitting that on this day dedicated
to loving memory and patriotic Impulse
we should take account nf tho present
and the futuie nn less than of the past.
To what end were the momentous sac
rifices or the civil War If wo of to-day
f.ill io bear the ark of the covenant of
human liberty safely to those of to-mnr-
i row? Let us, then, consider thoughtfully,

retrngfpsslon, pvpii perhaps of success or
failure. The magnitude of the (ask now
confronting the citizens of the republic
Is hardly more comprehensible to the
human mind than the Idea of eternity
ltsi-lf. Think of It! When Washington
tool; command of the American troops the
enilrt population numbered thn e inM
lons, when Lincoln called for volunteers,
thirty-one millions; to-day, ninety mill
ions and nine millions of dependents.
Another half century nnd more than two
hundred millions of human beings will
he gathered under the Stars and Stripes
on this continent alone. It s a ciltlc.il
period. If th" next fifty years pass In
peace, leaving undisturbed the rights of
people to govern theinsi Ives In the com
munities In which they live, who can
doubt that the problem of the everlasting
future will have been solved, and that
In very truth the millennial state of the
whole humnn race will have begun to
be realized upon the hemisphere which
already In a few hundred years has given
to man a fuller nnd freer opportunity to
become worthy of the Image in which he
was created thnn nnd been fifforded pre
viously In sixty centuries?
THE FORESIGHT OF Till! FATHERS.
Inevitable clouds gather ns tue power
nnd responsibility of a nation lncrensp,
and It is Idle tu deny that at this moment
thoughtful men view no little apprehen
sion the growth of certain popular Im
pulses which tend towards uncertainty
and Instability Cnrecogniz-d socialism',
dlsgused In (.leasing garb, has become for
the time a stumbling-block in the path of
that marvr Hons progress, so far achieved
by that combination of Individualism and
bold Initiative which we proudly term
the Anieilenn spirit. Murb yet remains to
be done to meet the rr julr tnents of na
tional conditions nlieady greitlv changed
and likely to vnrv with Inci easing rapid-
j lt ns our numbers multiply or grow by
I leaps and bounds. The nation Is welded
j politically, but not commercially and
financially, as soon It must be more (Irm
ly If wo couid (ltly fulfil our destiny. The
! problem Is mote difficult, more cumpllcat
j id to-day than ever befoie. Adjustment
! of the delicate relationship of local gov
ernment to national authorllj at their
multifarious points of contact was com
paratively easy when communities were
segregated by retarded commuulcaf lun.
Not so now! Every day makes fiesh de
mand upon the Ingenuity of the makers
and Interpreters of our law to ke.p true
the halance which constitutes the basis
of our republican theory. Neath every
modern Invention tends to annihilate
space and so to knit the masses more
and more closely together, nnd render
their constituent paits more and more
Interdependent. How would tho-e nun
who, we hae been taught, were eadowe-d
with exceptional sigacltj. the fathers of
the republic, meet the situation if alive
to-day? We ' cannot believe that they
would Insist upon rigid ndheience to
methods once sufllclent but now become
Inadequate. They wei e not nanow minds.
They saw far and clearly so far nnd so
eh arly that when they created a con
stitution they built It upon a principle
that compels the making of basic .slowly
w hen an eager people might perch nice
try to do in a month what, history teach
es, years are lequlreil to accomplish. Can
we do mote wisely than abide by the die.
tates of thnt foresight of the fathers
which thus far has never failed and, In
making necessary changes, move slowly,
(antliiusly and Migely as miy im along
the new nnd unlnaten paths?
THE HATTLESH II' OR THE SCHOOL.
History Is chiefly u record of battle.
Must it forever be? Can It be that Clod
means that his chlldien shall continue to
tmr at each other's throats to the end
of time? Is peace really unattainable? Is
I. not worth e-ven striving for? And to
what nation, If not to ours, f.ills the op
portunlty by precept and example of
pointing the way? The strength of a
country Is not measured by armies and
navies. Intelligence, character, conscience
(institute the trim and Imprognablu bul
warks of national welfare. The school
house nt the cornels Is morn potent ul
timately than a "Drcadiiught" of tho
sca.s; tho little church on tho hill Is
worth a scoro of regiments. Success In

THE CALL FOR VOI.FNTHEIIS.
My friends, we have placed the wreaths
of sluing upon the graves of our heroic
dead, It Is now our privilege to pay hom
age to tbo-e who yet live on survivors
of the great war for unity, for fcedom,
for stability of government, for pence
Incredible It seems, as we look Into
the faces of so many scions of hardy
slock still active In mind, body and pa
triotic Impulse, that nearly hnlf a cen
tury has glided by since they and their
comrades In yon ler cemetary guvo to
their country not only themselves, but
the peace and happiness of those whom,
left In sorrow and solicitude at home,
they loved better than themselves.
Through the mist of years we behold thn
vision of that dread time. We feel the
tense nppi ehelision that preceded the
bolt. We breithe the atmosphere of fore
boding that dimmed the light nf eyes
and veiled with gloom the countenances
which so lour; had shone with the hnppl
nes of personal HU-rty and common
prosperity. From the enveloping clouds,
j w-( see Hie lightning Hash, and hear the
I thunder echo from Sumter to every nook
and corner of the land. No need to in
terpret the shock' In this peaceful cone
mutiny, no less clearly than In the cap
itals and cities, the message was under
stood. It was death for the Individual or
death for the nation And how .'plendld
the ii-sponse! We see the grim determin
ation stamped Uon the faces of those
who awaited Impatiently the word of
their great chief. We note the eagerness
In their eyes, the clenching nf their
hands, reflecting not the lust of battle,
but the love of country, And then the
call for volunteers! Could we hae but
stood on this spot on that quiet evening,
we- could have heard no blare of trlumpts,
no beating nf drums, no fervid oratory;
not a sound louder than w ould have reach
ed our ears last night or will ngaln to
night; hut we would have seen men, first
one, then another, emerge from their
homes and pass silently along or across
the familiar street to the room win-re
they might pledge their lives and sacred
honor to the maintenance of the union J
and the glory of clvlllzntlon.
AMERICA'S NORLE WOMEN.
Hefore our retrospective vision picture
after picture uppears to complete tho
panorama. Wo are cognizant of the
bustle of preparation; the hasty group
ing of Individuals Into tentative organiza
tion; we now hear the drum and bugle;
excitement and confusion aro welcomed
to assuage grief; but the hour of part
ing Is Inevitable nnd comes nil too soon.
How many of you veteinns here, how
ninny of those there, lecall that saddest
moment in life when, with choking
throats, you tried In vain to say good-by
and, turning, took a last lingering look
at the weeping wives and (laughters, and
the dry-eyed, bravely milling mothers
striving with nil the courage of a re
ticent race to fill your hearts with
strength and hope and conceal the bleed
ing of their own. What knew you, or
what can men know, of heroism? Deeds
are hut natural oonse-qucnce.s of circum
stance, environment, necessity. Suffering
springs from helpless waiting. All that
you did, that they yonder did, that all
tin- great armies of men did In that
nwful war would weigh but as a feather
in the balance against the nngulsh of
those left behind-to hope nnd fear and
constant driad. Could the grnves of all
who gave their lives or happiness to
their nation b- decorated this day, how
many more would be loose of America's
noble women! Hut no! The wife's sac
rifice Is too great to find requlttnl; the
mother's love Is sacred to her own. The
freshest of (lowers betokening our most
giateful recognition would wither nnd
die beneath the smiles of heaven be
stowed as rays of sunshine upon thoso
All honor, liven, to you veterans of the
great war who still live; and to thoso
who have died, pence everlasting!

HOARD OF CIVIL AUTHORITY.
The pilnclpal matter to come heforo
the board of civil authority wan thu mat
ter of the Masonlo Templo tuxes, Tho
property was advertised for sale sonic
weeks ago because of unpaid taxes.
Ellhu H. Taft, representing the Grand
Lodge of Vermont, F. & A. M., claimed
that the Tompln -was entitled to exemp
tion as a charitable Institution, on tho
same grounds that St. John the Hapilst
hall and St. Joseph's societies' (pinrte.-s
Alderman Russell said that he was a
Mason and would be very glad to see tho
temple exempted If such were the Intent
of the law, Ho did not think the Ma
sonlo fraternity came under tho head
of a charitable Institution nnd ho thought
It his duty lo vote to sustain tho action
of the assessors. Tho uctlrn of the as
sessors In taxing the temple was sus
tained. The honrd of civil authority also made
corrections to tho caucus voting lists,
about 20 names being added,
Tho board of civil authority adjourned
to Thursday evening Juni u, when the
last meeting will be held to make correc
tions to the check list.
DAINTIES FOIl AHKIIMIIIN TEA N,
Hy Alien E. WhI'akcr.
A great variety of little cakes, Iced
and decorated In various ways, are
served at teas nnd with Ices. These are
grouped under the general name "petit
fours" If ono Is not satisfied to call
them blmply little fancy cakes. Tins
for baking these cakes an- shaped like
llttln shells, (luted and plain putty pans,
grooved puns for lady lingers and the
bent pans for ornngo sections and tri
angles. It Is much easier to cut a
large cake baked in a square or ob
long pan Into slices and those again
Into fancy shapes. A thin cako baked
In a shallow imn can bn cut tn advan
tage Into many odd shapes. Perhaps
mine are moro satisfactory than cubes
and diamonds and It Is possible to
cut these and wasto scarcely a crumb.
Another variety Is the sandwich cake
made by cutting thin slices, Spread
one with beaten Jelly or imv other
sort of lilllng prof cried, lay a second
sllco on and press together. Cut In
Miuaies or lingers nnd Ice.
For Icing for small cakes melt some
fondant and dip them like candles.
Chocolate Icing Is also good for coating
the small cakes that are no larger than
two bonbons. It Is well to keep on
hui"l tln bottles of different kinds of
color pat-le, a Utile nng, l.ca to 1 i i.sleii
