But 50 years have gone by since then and I crave the privilege of speaking to you for a few minutes of what those 50 years have meant What have they meant?

How wholesome and healing the peace has beenl We have found one another again as brothers and com rades in arras, enemies no longer, gen erous friends rather, our battles long paet, the quarrel forgotten—except that we shall not forget the splendid valor, the manly devotion of the men then arrayed against one another, now grasping hands and smiling into each other's eyes. How complete the union has become and how dear to all of us, how unquestioned, how benign and majestic, as »täte after state has been added to this great family of free men! How handBome the vigor, the maturity, the might of the great na tion we love with undivided hearts; how full of large and confident prom ise that a life will be wrought out that will crown Its strength with gra cious Justice and a happy welfare that will touch all alike with deep content ment! We are debtors to those 60 crowded years; they have made us heirs to a mighty heritage. Nation Not Finished. But do we deem the nation plote and finished? men crowding here to this famous field have set us a great example of devotion and utter sacrifice. They were willing to die that the people might live. But their task Is done. Their day is turned into evening. They look to ub to perfect what they estab lished. Their work is handed on to us, to be done in another way but not in another spirit. Our day is not over; it is upon us in full tide. Have affairs paused? nation stand still? Is It what the 60 years have wrought since those days of battle finished, rounded out, and completed?

Salt Lake City.—Educators of national prominence and teachers from every section of the Union were in this city Monday, April 7, for the opening session of the National Edu cation association, the visiting edu cators being given a characteristic welcome.

Faiichlld, in h:s address introducing the work of ihe convention, presented a scheme of re organization of the association which he believes will add to its efficiency a sa body, tending to increase the standard of efficiency of the public school teacher. This address was re garded as the key-note speech of the convention. Addresses were also made at the opening session by M. P. Shawkey, state superintendent of public schools of Charleston, W.

Penrose, in behalf of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints, at services in the taber nacle, following which Philander P. Claxton, United States commissioner of education, delivered an address on "The School Teacher.'' "If a school teacher be unable to give all his life and being, not nega tively, but affirmatively and aggres sively, for the sake of the child, for the sake of the home and for the sake of the nation, he should leave the profession.'' This is the view ex pressed by Dr. P. P. Claxton in his address. "Educational Sunday" was observed generally in Salt Lake churcües and ward chapels, pastors of the various denominations delivering bearing on topics of interest to the many teachers in the city, while the members of many wards of the Mor mon church listened to addresses from prominent members of the National Education association.
