What the Veterans Are Asking.
Union veterans everyboro am
asking why Prosldont Wilson Is not
to bo present at thi Clotfysbutg semi
centennial reunion noxt wifjk. This
celebration commemorate tho crit
ical battle of the great war for tho
preservation of tho nation. Its of
foots were na far-reaching as of any
ever fought in the history of tho
world. On that field of carnage
will be gathered In peaceable ro
unlon nearly all the surviving par
ticipants, coming from all parts of
tho country. Washington is only n
fow hours' rldo from Gettysburg,
and tho means of going and coming,
comfortable and convenient, yet
President Wilson has satisfied him
self that tho exigencies of public
business do not afford him the tlmo
to attend and tako part in tho cele
bration. Of course, nothing In tho constitu
tion, or tho laws, or his oath of
offlco, Imposes on tho president tho
duty to accept an invitation to tho
Gettysburg semi-centennial. Yet
union veterans are asking what
other prosldent stneo that great
event would havo subordinated such
n call to nny other engagement.
Would Lincoln, who' wont to Gettys
burg -to dedicate tho monument to
tho fallon horoos? Would Grant,
would Hayes, would Garfield, would
Harrison, would McKinloy, each of
whom fought under tho Stars and
ritrinos in that great conflict, have
lot anything keep him away7 Would
Cloveland, or Roosevelt, or Taft,
even though not personally enlisted
In that war, havo lot pass the oppor
tunity to grace tho occasion with
tho prosenco of tho chief executive
of tho nation?
Those aro questions the veterans
aro asking.

Nearly all of these Institution. nt
learning require high school credits,
which. In Itself la right and necessary,
for most of them. But right hero lies
tho trouble. We cannot get these credits
without leaving the farm, for four years
ana mis onen means for all time.
By ths interpretation of the "free hiKh
school laW," not more than eight grades
may be taught In the rural schools,
everywhere, farmers are becomtn
justly indignant of this ruling and nrac
lice and demand that this restriction be
removed. We aro not witling that each
child must stop ochool at this grade,
or be compelled to struggle up through
the many unsurpassable difficulties,
which. In the end, leaves the country
in an unsettled state, both aa to It
social, educational and economic con
dltlon.
As ths first step toward remedying
this, we offer the following:
Resolved. That no child of school am
shall, without cause, be denied admission
to, or Instruction In the school of his
or her own district, In any branches
aoove tne eigntn grade, that are required
on tne ceruiicate or tne teacner, teacn
lug that school.
Take this up at your annual school
meeting and have as many sign this as
are In favor of the country youth having
restored to them the right to be taught
In their own school.

Editor of The Bee: I see that by the
secret advice of the head officers of
the Modern Woodmen of America a new
dodge Is being tried on us now. The
new organisation that calls Itself the
Progressive Woodmen society, Is being
formed by "high raters" In the hope of
dividing the rank and file In the fight
against the highway robber rates that
were adopted at Chicago during th,
month of January, 191), and the high
way robber rates would have been forced
down our throats by the head Officers
had they not been blocked by the courts
In saveral states. And they are not satis
fled, for they ars trying to have what
they call a referendum vote taken In the
hope of confusing the members so that
they will not know where they are at
The head officers hopo that If a com
promise, a thty call It can be effected
they will not lose their official scalps
In Wit But th rank and file will not
b caught by any such bait The first Job
on hand U to ge rid ot all of the pres
ent head officers, (or when wo have been
fooled by them onot, wa do not want
to trust them again.
After wa get rtdteC tha officers who

IN SPITE OP FATE.
S. E. Kiser In the Record-Herald.
A little boy sat on an old rail fence
And gazed at a drooping limb;
And a sinful yearning that was intens
Kept steadily urging him.
His little red features were covered with
dirt ,
And his little brown legs were scratched;
There were numerous rents In his little
checked shirt
And his lllttle blue pants were patched.
I
From one little toe the nail had been torn
And one little heel was sore:
A child apparently more forlorn
I had never beheld before.
'I
At last he stood on the topmost rail
And reached for that drooping limb;
I almost uttered a hopeless wall
I felt so sorry for him. '
Hand over hand he pulled It down
Tho limb with the droop. I mean;
His face was red and his legs wers
brown .
And the apples were small and green.
He sat on the rail and he ate and ite;
I counted them there were four:
Then, foolishly, recklessly challenging
fate.
He reached for a couple more.
i
Sadly I turned to pursue my way
And sadly I said "Good-by.''
Alas for what I have seen this day,'
'TIs sad that the young must die.
"Toil have had your way and you've had
your will:
Tour bed will be dark and deep!
A week from now upon yonder hill '
Tou will He In a dreamless sleep."
A week hod passed and aealn I chanced
To pause nead that fateful tree;
With sad remembrance I turned and
glanced
A thrill was In store for me.
For there on the old rail fence he Sat
Eating with calm delight.
And, having finished he filled hla hat
And then sauntered out of sight.
