Beaching the center station the procession reformed, and Bleuer'a band playing a dirge, it passed with measured tread wltbln tbe gates and wound its way through the grounds to a spot on the west slope which had been selected lor the sacred cer emoniaL A wagon which had been decorated and provided with seata had already been stationed there. and about it were congregated the people whom the duty of the dav had attracted. Capt. J. W. Hanson was marshal of the day and Capt. J. M. Beardaley waa master of ceremonies., The program opened with a bugle call te the assembly. Then Bleuer'a band played sweetly Nearer My God te Thee," when Rev. C. E.

Law can designate the uniform and other insignia of the living soldier, and prescribe other rules for his government.

The power 01 the law can rear a shaft of marble that shall pierce the sky, or erect a mausolem whorsio may repose the dust of a na tion'a loved and honored. But law cannot reach the spirit of this day. Love mast take ua in nana in tbia service, aa we Dav the debt of mtl tnde. We must let our fleer feel ings guide ns as we reverently com memorate this occasion. Tne Anawar te Sammy ' Dr. MeCulloch traced vividly the hlatory of the civil war, beginning with the answer of the north to the shot at Sampler, when men hurried from every walk of life to take their part in the argument in the awful court of grim war. He compared the various phases of that strife with the other wars in which the country had been involved from Its first strike for freedom, and paid a mag. ninoent tribute to the met who in the dark days of the eVe. had re sponded to the country's peril, 1 whe 1 or her sake had marched uaiaitenag. ly where whissing balls tore eyes from the sockets, limbs from the body and reason from the brain, un til over the sea of this broad land every craft of secession and bondage had been blighted. The argument that dead men tell no tales was seared by the orator in n picture of the pages In histox mess men naa written witn Uvea' blood. A mighty and eloquen phalanx marches through the corn dors of time, telling of deeds of no. ble tad heroic dying, of sacrifice and devotion that will inspire the lives of men if Tbng aa humanity ahall live. There should be no distinction of 1 rank, when we honor n nation's dust. We lift them all to aa equal plane in our hearts and thoughts. Mr. Me Culloch spoke of the duty we owed to tbe foreigners wno naa iurnisnea such a large proportion of those who had fought under the banner of free com ana he referred particularly to ihe representatives of the English, Serman and Irish nations. Like. Wise the brother in black, the ua known dead, and finally should be re membered the veteran in the even tide of life; and in conclusion uttered as a fervent prayer eternal peace in the home beyond the akiea for all those whose duat shall mark the grave of a soldier of the republic It was a brilliant and scholarly address, most fitting and eloquently delivered. Saiart D. OannoUfa Addiaaa. The band played a petriotio selec tion when Bernard D. Connelly 'a waa introduced. Today," Mr. Connelly said, ia doubly sacred. What day is ao fitting as the Sabbath to pay a loving tribute to the memory of de parted heroes r" ue then dwelt upon the beauties of the sacred custom of giving ourselves over to the memory of those who sacrificed their Uvea on the altar of country. War ia terrible, and God grant the one we commemo rate may be the last, yet while peace is smiling 0 er tne tana, we should ever be prepared, for while we are aot a hostile nation, but a peeoe lov ing, forebearing people, we have taught the world that where duty calls, the beat blood is freely offered. 10 the soldier 01 tne republic was ascribed by the epeaker. the firat place on the country's roll of honor.

Today the great heart of the American people trobs with a quiok cuing; pulsation aa we recall those wao gave tneir lives lor the coun try's cause Mr. Connelly beauti fully recalled the lessons of patriot ism that were developed in the dark daja, .of cruel war, when all the earthly ties of love were severed for the love 01 country. Those were times when men's souls were tried, and yet how little those of the gen erations that have since came, and of which the speaker said he waa one. realize the heart sohes, the grief and the awful suspense that filled the homes ail over this land. -in tne sorrows that attend such a day as this, Mr. Connelly spoke of a witter feeling of patriotism and pride that must mingle consolingly in the thoughts of those who come sadly to pay tribute to loved .ones. Mr. Connelly devoted himself with much force to the source of gratin cation that cornea in the knowledge that the apirit of secession ia fast going out and giving place all over tne land to a common love of union, the sentiment no worthno south, no east, ao west, finding no more hearty response than in that which echoes today from Dixie's land. No more profound and petriotio ode conld be written for the re pa olio than that which treata of "The Blue and the Gray."
