The soldier’s last tattoo; Ko more on life’s parade shall meet The brave and daring few. On Fame’s eternal camping ground Their silent tents are spread, ' And Glory guards with solemn round The Bivouac of the Dead. "A mother in a little town in Michi gan stood on the street curb to see her son march off Co war. She was not unlike many a mother in this au dience today—brave, beautiful, un complaining! I remember sitting at breakfast with this mother and her family. There wasn’t much said dur ing the meal, for fear, I suppose, that the spoken word would reveal a break ing heart Then the breakfast over, we hurried to say the last private faref •well. Sisters kiss him and try to hide the tears that won't stay back. The -mother stifles a sob in her throat, puts her dear arms about the boy and kiss es him goodbye. The grandmother, whose husband fell at Antietam, tries to rise but cannot So she just buries her face in her thin, withered hands and sobs! And now at the last mo ment we all stand on the street curb to see the boys march off to war. There are the usual scenes: The flut tering of innumerable handkerchiefs, the flaunting of flags, the stirring music of the band, the rhythmical tramp, tramp, tramp of marching feet, the wild cheers and the tears that evefybody tired to hide. “A year wen by; and this Michigan mother like many a Cody mother learned much of the glory and the horror of war. Then one day there came to her a telegram from the War Department. She signed for its re ceipt hut in spite of herseJf her hand trembled. And there leaped into her mind’s eye a picture of a battleeflld some where In France. She saw gi gantic shells bursting in mid-air; she •aw huge mountains of earth tossed skyward by the explosion of hidden mines; she saw the poisonous gas creeping and sweeping across the earth; she caught on tangled embank ments the broken and dismembered bodies of soldier beys. Half buried in mud and blood 4he saw the body of her own son—stark .and cold in death. Her face went white, her Ups quivered, then with a prayer she open ed and read the telegram—the ment’s brief mention of the death of her only son. Killed in action. Bur ied somewhere in France. Then, as the bit of yellow paper fell from her fingers and fluttered to the floor, the color came back to her face, her lips smiled, and she spoke thus: “God be praised! John has been promoted!” “Now friends, isn’t that a brave and beautiful way to look at death. That is precisely the message of hope and love that I would sound and empha size on this sacred Memorial day. Somewhere in France the body of Sol dier John with many another soldier boy lies burud. So in this land of ours, on the sun kissed hill or nest ling close to the weeping willows, oth er soldier boys lie buried. Never again shall they know the weariness of long watches; never again shall they suffer the agony of shell shock and strangulation. They are at rest. “Yes, the bodies of our soldier boys sleep in their narrow graves but their souls —ah, their souls have passed on and up into that sunnier land of Par adise. Let us believe that the dear dead have passed thru the daor of Death into God’s sunlight Zone. They have been promoted. The Great Com mander in Chief has called tho.r. and as loyal and obedient soldiers they hesitated not to answer the Call. So there —in the heavenly Blithy— under the immediate Orders of Go 1 -they work at love’s labor and never weary in well doing. There with smiling face and outstretched hands, they await to welcome us. Let us, there fore, on this Memorial day reuive to look upon our dead as having passed on, not out; as having been raised to a higher and holier and happier task! They are indeed more vitally alive than ever. Purified of earth stains they now work for the joy of the wo r k and with only th« Master to judge them. Radiant, vital souls they bid us so live in this life that we shall have no fear of the next —gladly liv ing and gladly dying! “The world today is calling for men —men of high vision- and noble pur ; pose;“men whom the spoils of office 1 cannot buy, men whom the lusts of office cannot kfcll” —men who dare to ! do and to die for the right! O Friends, Members of the American Legion, I i appeal to you fn the name of the he ' roic dead whose memories we here 1 honor. To you the call comes. Let i now the high hills and the heavens • echo with the battle cry of your splen j did service! Then shall peace and ; prosperity and good will prevail j among the children of men!” '—’7 WviSWiSI \ C uWV WlrsPbb w W VWi wr.

Ballroom Dancing. The earliest form of ballroom danc ing was the quadrille, started about 1815. This was followed by the lan cers, invented in 1836. The polka was adopted in 1835. The waltz, which came from Germany, in 1795, did ’not become popular as a ballroom dance till later. The two-step is an Ameri can invention. Mending China.

One difference between the speaker of the English house of commons and the lord chancellor, who occupies a similar position in the house of lords. Is that while the speaker cannot take part in debates and can vote only when there Is a tie. the lord chancellor is entitled to speak and vote on all oc casions. Goldfish as Companions. Goldfish swimming in a pool are good for the sick room, say some De troit physicians, as moving objects in duce patients to forget their pains, and it is said this tendency Is more pronounced in the aged and very young. Canaries, It is said, share with goldfish the honor of being the chief animate entertainment to the sick. Peculiar “Crop** Rotation. An unusual rotation of crops, con sisting of fish two years and oats one year, is reported by a recent writer in the Scottish Journal of Agriculture. This occurs in some localities in the reclaimed regions along the coast of England and the continent. The fish are raised in shallow pools, which are drained and cultivated every third year.
