R. in Saratoga a Stirring Sight - AGED SOLDIERS MARCH I H RAiH TraTersed a Mile Through Village Streets, While Thousands, With Uncovered Heads, Watched the Faltering lines and Old Banners. Saratoga, IT. Y. The Grand Army of the Republic held its parade its forty-first. . Ten thousand limping, gray haired " veterans, the remnant of the army, whose scores of thousands passed in lieview at the national capi tal when the war was. over, braved a driving storm to march once more beneath their battle flags. As un mindful of the storm as in the days of " "61," when youth and vigor and love of the flag knew no physical .bounds, these dwindling .thousands passed once more in review. While scores dropped out when the rain began to fall the ranks their line and braved' the driving storm as if again going to "their places in the front of Jbattle. The rain poured with steadily increasing force as they marched, but through the drenching torrents . they kept on. Few there wera who even held umbrellas. -For an hour and more the old soldiers plodded on between lines of cheering people as plucky as themselves, keep ing step to the music. Governor Charles, E. Hughes, -his military staff, the national officers of the Grand Army and distinguished visitors stood on the reviewing stand, poorly, shielded from the driving storm. . . When the last rank" had passed in review the rain ceased, the skies cleared and, the sun broke out. The dripping but undaunted old soldiers found their ways to lodging places, satisfied that-such t a trifle as a driv ing rainstorm had ' no more arrested their onward march than it had in the days of war. The parading distance was reduced to one . mile, the shortest ever fixed for"-the national encampment. For the first time the parade was limited to members of the Grand Army in stead of being open to all survivors of the war. The village was ablaze with the national colors, covering the fronts of buildings, festooned at every con venient point, ttrung in rows at short intervals across the streets and com pletely covering the interior of the great convention hall where the ses sions of the encampment . were held. One of the features of the parade was the presence of a big flag which cov ered the body of "General Grant on its way from .Moilnt McGregor to the tomb. ( In custody of the " Gren adier Guard, commanded by Colonel A. S. Fowler, of Little Rock, Ark., of which every man was over six feet tall, and each represented one of the forty-five departments of the Q. A. R., thi3 old flag brought up the rear.
