the one dav in :H'C which has been set

of the dead heroes; sacred to the fel
lowship of the heroes who still live."
lie spoke of the part which the women
of the country had in the dreadful
trials of the civil war and held that that
war was the great awakening time for
women. While the men were fighting,
the women were obliged to take charge
of the homes and their executive abil

eran's word and those who sleep in
yonder cemetery, 'Forward, March.' "

In commemoration of the day all
places of business were closed and a
spirit of reverence prevailed. At IS. .'10
the organizations of the Grand Army
and Woman's Relief corps and Sons of
Veterans met at their rooms and at 1
p. m. marched to the town hall, es
corted by the Xorthfield brass band, the
children of the town schools joining
the procession. Patriotic exercises
with singing were well rendered by
them under the direction of Superin
tendent F. E. Howard and Miss An
nie Palmer, teacher of music in the
schools. After the usunl formula of
the dny Rev. Geo. F. Pentecost spoke
very feelingly and was followed by
James L. Bowen of Springfield, com
mander of Wilcox post and a member
of the old .'iCth regiment, Massachu
setts volunteers, who gave the address
of the day with many interesting in
cidents of the civil war. The exer
cises closed by the singing of Amer
ica. The hall was fittingly decorated
with flags and potted plants. At the
front of the platform were :i.'l baskets
filled with flowers, the work of the
Indies of the Woman's Relief corps
and C. W. Mattoon, for the decora
tion of soldiers' graves at the ceme
tery. A special feature of the occa
sion was the presentation by Mrs. N.
G. Hilliard of the Farms of a large
tmtriotic sermon on "America for
Americans." In addressing the mem
bers of the G. A. R., he said there were
three ideas in their minds that never
left them, when thev went out in their
country's service. The first was "Old I
Glory," the second our purely Ameri
can principles, the third our monu
ments erected to our heroes and to com
memorate events of national importance
He spoke of Bunker Hill monument
and Valley Forge and others and said
the boys of the fifties looked at those
and wondered if they could do what
their fathers had done: but when the
call came they responded nobly. His
tribute to "Old Glory" was very em
pathic and he said the. people of for
eign countries had no right to come
here and belittle our flag. If they
came bore they ought to accept our
flag and prove loyal to it.

To New York by Sea,
The trip to New York, through the
Sound by daylight, by the steamer,
"Old Dominion" of the Joy line is
fast becoming the most iopu)ar short
sea trip out of Boston, for it appeals
particularly to the individual who has
but a limited time to spare for vaca- j
find a cure.
The doctor declares that if persons
will only draw down the corners of
their mouths and use sufficient will
power they can actually shed tears.
On the other hiuid, if they will persist
ently keep the corners of the mouth
turned up pleasant thoughts will chas
away the gloomy forebodings. His
discovery grew out of an experience la
his own home. His wife was of a nerv
ous and rather morbid temperament,
and when in a despondent mood ha
would ask her to "smile a little" until
the saying came to be a household
Joke. But it brought about good re
sults, and then came the inspiration to
try the same cure on others.
The doctor has not patented his rem
edy, and it is free to all who choose to
take advantage of it. Minneapolis

THE EYE OF AN ARTIST.
A Cane W here It IVai More Reliable

Mr. N. Chevalier, the welt known
artist who accompanied the late Duke
of Edinburgh on many of his travels,
was once going from Dunedin to
Lyttelton, New Zealand, by steamer.
Anxious to catch the earliest glimpse
of the coast he went on deck at dawn
and was alarmed to see that the vessel
was heading straight on to the land.
Calling the ollicer's attention to the
fact, he was told that it wns only a
fog bank. The artist maintained his
point, but the second officer looked
and confirmed his mate.
The artist then said: "Well, gentle
men, I will back my artist's eye
against your sailor's eye, and I say
that what you mistake for a fog bank
