The dead of two wars are honored, and the real meaning of the day is brought home to the later generation as it never has been bfore. The haziness that time gives to memories of those who have gone to their last resting place is brushed aside and the real import of the day stands out with more distinctness. One day in the year may well be given over entirely to honoring our soldier dead. It is not too much. They gave up their lives, some to hold the eouutry undivided and some to relieve a down-trodden people at the threshold of our republic. We owe them a debt of gratitude that we never ean repay, whether they fought in the civil war or the war with. Spain. Their devotion and their courage entitle them to the grateful remembrance we show, and the recent additions to their number make the real significance of the exercises more distinct. DECORATION DAY.

I E always knew when Mike was coming; the manner of his en trance never left room for doubt. There was always the confused murmur of a wordy dispute with the elevator boy downstairs who refused to operate his machine for newsboys, the quick rush of bare feet up the stairs to the shrill ac companment of "Mah Coal Black Lady," or "Mr. Johnson, Turn Me Loose;" the door would fly open with a crash and Mike would be in the center of the room shouting "Ev'nen Journal! Lat'st war news!" from a golden imagination yellow ing the already very yellow news of his paper in a manner that must have won him an editorship could the proprietor of the sheet have heard him. This partic ular May afternoon the method of bis entrance differed in no way from the asual routine, save that the door flew open a little more suddenly and swung to again with a little louder crash if pos sible. But once inside it was evident that Mike was unduly excited. The pa pers which he usually held out in front at arm's length to display to the best advan tage their half-page scar heads were tucked securely under one arm; his big black eyes danced jubilantly and he en tirely forgot business and the startling news of his papers in the vastly greater importance of his own news. "Sav. wot ver tink! lie ol man s 'list ed fer a soger; he's go'n t'war! Ain't he t bird?" he shouted. "Whose old man?" I inquired. "Mine! Me dad! Whose'd yer sup pose? Git de wool out o yer t inker! he replied scornfully. 'But. Mike, who is going to support the family?" I inquired, remembering a vivid lescription Mike had once given me of six ittle MurphyB of whom he was the eld- ?st and only " 'leven" at that. "De fam ly s all right. Dad says dat f he goes off to de scrap de folks wot stays home is boun' to take care uv his fam'ly. Say, yer ought to see 'im. He's ill right, ye bet! De reg'ment marches to-morrer." It was the first time I had ever heard Mike speak of his father with anything like respect. I knew him to be a drunken ne'er-do-well, who abused his wife and children and contributed little to their support. The days wore on. Regiment after regiment passed through the city in route for the South and Mike was joy ously full of excitement. Every after noon he blew into the office and every day his stories of the uews grew bigger and more yellow. He followed every move of the army and his imagination rau riot with the possibilities of the worid-chang- ng drama being enacted. Every scrap of lews in regard to his father's regiment n-as on his tongue's end, and 1 soon found hat with the donning of his blue coat his father had become a hero. As for Mike limself he was the same impudent, sharp yed, dirty, ragged little gamin as of fore, one of the most successful newsboys n the street, an inveterate scrapper and rambler, and on his own confession, rare st night having more than half his lay's earnings to take home. When I remonstrated with him and pointed out hat he should take bis father's place, he was always ready with an answers f v ing back on the old argument that if his father fought for his country it was his country s place to look after his family. The summer wore on. The Fourth of July dawned hot and sultry. The temper ature rose with the sun; at 10 o'clock it was 80; at 11 o'clock 90 and at noon it registered 9(3 in the shade. The glare from the asphalt streets blinded the eyes. Men panted for breath and now and then one fell. The water front and the parks were tnronged with women and children seek ing relief. Those who succumbed were taken to the hospitals, but no one minded them. Down before Santiago 16,000 men in dingy brown canvas blue trimmed uni forms in the blistering heat of a tropical climate were fighting against overwhelm ing odds. On the day before had come the news of a disastrous defeat, and the night had closed down in gloom. To-day the defeat had been turned into a victory and the cable had flashed home the details of a great naval victory besides. The great city sweltt-ied and sweated and waited for confirmation and for the list of dead. That afternoon business calied me te the office. For an hour I worked and then fell to thinking of the great tragedy being enacted. Suddenly I became aware that someone was standing b7 my desk "Ev'nen Journal, sir? List uv dead and wounded." It was Mike, but I hardly recognized the voice. All the impudence, the old- time braggadocio was gone, aud he had come in so quietly. Why, Mike began. Then I noticed the trace of tears furrowed through the dirt on the two grimy cheeks. There was an unwonted seriousness in the deep black eyes and an unmistakable quiver in the voice as he repeated, Ev nen Journal, sir? Extra, jes' out 'Plete list uv dead an' wound ed." I snatched the pape, eagerly and tossed Mike a nickel. "Never mind the change," I said, and plunged into the details of the fight. When I glanced up Mike was still there. "If yer please, sir," he began, standing on one leg and uneasily rubbing it with the dirty brown foot of the o:her. "If yer please, sir, could I count yer reg'lar fer a poiper every night? Oi Oi got ter s port de fam ly now 'cause Oi'ni th' head uv it. He he's dere, sir," he finished with a dry sob, pointing to the open page before me. Glancing down the column in heavy black, bold-faced type, I saw the name of Private Dennis A. Murphy on the roll of honor with the brief, explana tory line, "Shot through the head." Mike drew a step nearer. "Say," he said, with just a touch of his old-time eagerness, "he's a hero now, nin't he?" Mike has several regular customers in the office now, but he no longer blows in like a miniature hurricane. He comes and goes quickly but quietly. He is full of business, and although his former im pudence now and then flashes out it is in a guarded way that will lose him no cus tomers. He is always ready for a scrap when anyone intrudes upon his rights, but he has given up fighting for the fun of the thing, and he no longer pitches pennies and gambles away his hard-earned money. "Yer see, Oi'm de head uv de fam'ly now, an' have ter help me mither," he explains. The other day he came into the office with the old-time rush. "They've got me father's body, an' it's ter be buried here," he cried. Then after a moment's thought he inquired wistfully. "Say, do yer s'pose de sogers' U march ter his grave an' put a flag an' flowers on it 'Morial day?" Thornton N. Burgess, in Orange Judd Farmer. Their Tents of Green. Marching steadily, loyal and true. Come the survivors clad In blue. While the Old Flag floating overhead. Greets the living, honors the dead. Worthy of honor as king or queen, Silent 'neath their tents of green. With 'sleeping lilies dipp'd in dew. Youth and beauty their graves shall strew To memories grim, of bygone years, We tribute pay In falling tears. There's many a grave we cannot place, That hides an unforgotten face. May orioles sing their sweetest lay. O'er mounded earth of blue or gray. For those that sleep 'neath the ocean's blue. Our hearts are throbbing ever true. Beyond the sunset's beautiful gate. Are gleaming tents where angels wait, To guide the swinging columns through The golden streets beyond the blue. American Cultivator. rrn..

Try it if you feel PEDDLERS OF THE OCEAN. Nautical Prototype of the Man with the Pack. The man with a pack on his back, trudging from village to village and offering for sale at cottage and farm bouse a miscellaneous collection of wares, has his counterpart In the ocean peddler, ranging in size from a schoon er trading among the islands of the Pacific to a steamer of one or two thousand tons burden. The ocean peddler starts out from Hamburg or San Francisco, the chief home ports of the trade, with a defin ite object in view. Sailing from the former city, the course Is generally laid either to the coast of Africa or South America, having In the hold a varied assortment of goods likely to be marketable in the regions visited cotton fabrics, trinkets, arms, ammu nition, liquors, and all spare room filled up with coal. As the largest profits are often de rived from the sale of contraband goods, such as munitions of war to in surgent bodies, and as detection by reg ular authorities would lead to confisca tion, several thousand rounds of car tridges are probably done up in Innocent-looking cases stamped "Canned beef," and a few stands of discarded German army rifles in packages label ed "Glass, with care." The captain of such a vessel must possess not only ability as a navigator, but an expert knowledge of the re quirements of his trade in addition to a plausible tongue wherewith to barter and win over the good will of an ill disposed official. If he does not own an interest in the ship It Is generally required that he shall in her cargo. Trudging along over the ocean at a seven or eight knot gait, saving his coal as much as possible, the peddler opens his trade by casting anchor in, say, a South or Central American port, when, having squared the com mandante, he invites merchants and others on board to Inspect his stock. Duty, of course, has to be paid by the Durchaser. hut I II r.rirtoi'n .... . I . , . .

A sense of humor is a great thing in helping a man over a hard place, and the Biddeford Record thinks one of that city's ramsellers must be possessed of the aid of this cheerfulness. It was just after the big seizure of liquors the other day that a man who didn't know of the raid stepped up to the dismantled bar and asked for a drink. The pro prietor looked at the man for a second and then spreading his arms out on the bar, said, as pleasantly as he could under the circumstance:;: "I'm very sorry, but I have just let the last oi my stock of beer go."

On the Central American coast the peddler usually times his visit at about the opening of the coffee season, that is, early in the new year, so that when he has sold out his wares he is able to load up, almost to the water line, with the principal export of the country. That the ocean-peddling trade Is not without Its dangers is illustrated by a story told by a mate of one of those vessels. In order to preserve his re spectable character the contraband goods are sometimes stored In places likely to escape the vigilant eye of the customs officer, and, in the case In ! question, the mate's bunk was chosen ; as the safest repository for certain ! packages of dynamite consigned to the ' leaders of a Nicaraguan revolution. All went well until the night before the ship was due to arrive at her destina- tion, when a thunderstorm occurred the lightning playing about the masts In an alarming manner. The mate ' confessed that the Idea of turning in ! upon a bed of dynamite under such cir- I cumstances was not conducive to peaceful repose, even to one accustom ed to sleep through all manner of dan gers; but with the reflection that If a flash found its way to his bunk he would not be likely to be made aware of the fact he slumbered serenely through his watch below, and next day delivered the "canned tomatoes" safe ly to the consignees. The ocean-peddling trade on the Pa- clfic has been shorn of much of its profit since the Inter-island passenger traffic in natives, who too often were carried as passengers much against their will, to dive for pearls on the great Australian bank, has been effec tually suppressed. Still, a consider able trade is carried on In small arti cles in hardware, old clothes, personal trinsets and an occasional case of "dry goods," which if seized would turn out to be remarkably wet.
