To you, Mr. President and gentle men of the Park commission, to you Mr. Mayor and gentlemen of the city council, in behalf of the Germans of the twin cities of Omaha and South Omaha, I now pre sent this monument.

Th statu Is a fitting memorial to the beloved poet of Germany, and also to the public splrltertness of the members of the German societies of Doug las county.

To the Influence of Schlllar upon German thought may he attributed In lars-e part th fact that Germans have easily assimilated with our institutions and taken a leading part In bringing about a realisation of our nohlest purposes. ir I were asked to name wi writer who hu heat voiced American democracy and the spirit Of our Institutions, I would . say Ralph WsJdo Emerson.

In the growth from militarism to In dustrialism the greatest good to the greatest number has become a rule of action. I'nder militarism the merchant, the craftsman, the laborer was despised. The warrior alone received consideration from his chief. With us labor la dignified. The welfare of the toller la the care of the state. Schiller expressed our national purpose In these lines: "To freemen labor Is renown: Who works brings blessings and com mands, Kings glory In th orb and crown Be ours the glory of the hands." Bertha and Rudenx abandoning tha splen dours of the Austrian court to cast their lot with their fellow citizens Is a forceful example to our oountrymen who are ex changing wealth for title, and seeking a position In European society, where even if they are received, are despised. The Illustrations I have given sustain my statement that Schiller belongs to the world, and Is In the class with Homer, Plato, Virgil, Dante. Roueeau, Goethe, Ib sen and Tolstoi, who belong to America even more than to their native lands. Where civilization Is most advanced, where freedom Is moee aecure, where brotherly love most prevails, where Christian virtues are most highly prlxed, there Is the natural, fitting and everlasting home of Schiller. May this statue Inspire us and our chil dren to higher Ideals and nobler purpose. Vou have planted It upon this eminence. surounded by the oak and linden, which he loved ao well.

There was a song by a woman's quartet and then Dr. R. 8. Lueke delivered th principal address of the day. He spoke In Oerman. He began by relating the history of the birth' and early life of the poet; hla studies at school and a brief account of his principal works. He then paid a tribute to the character of the man, saying that In all of his studies of writings of Schiller he was Impressed with the honesty of the man, hia love of absolute truth and hla painstaking care to see that nothing but true ideas and sentiments were given place In, his work. The speaker declared that Schiller wasnor llko a meteor In Oerman literature, but was like a fixed star whose light Is a beacon to all student and lovers of German literature, Th singing of the Star Spangled Banner by a male quartet closed the formal pro gram.

He told me that he had just come back from hi old master's grave, putting blooms on It. He described him as one of the best men that ever lived or died. "He's burled up on the hill yandiT,' said he, 'and when the flowers come I alwaya go up there and put blooms on hi dar old grave. But I'se getting a little old and forgetful now and so I'se afraid mebbe sometimes I'll forget to take the blooms up dar.

"Kvery business man should have a prac tical course In reading entirely outatde hi business. He may think h has no time for It. but he must do It, or It will mean mental suicide." This was the advice given by Rev. J. W. Conley at the First Baptist church yester day morning In a sermon from the text, ".Man shall not live by bread alone.' He declared every man should devote a part of his time regularly to mental, moral and aesthetlo culture. "There Is very much danger," he said, "of one-sldedness In life. The text Is a warning against 'narrowness In living. God has a plan. for life and He Is trying to hrlng everyone up to the level of that plan.
