bondale who offered themselves In hu
manity's caune In tho Spanish-American
war. The occasion was the annual
'memorial religious services of the
'Grand Army, of the Republic, which Is
now a hulluw'qd custom. Besides tho
veterans,' there wiih a congregation
that tilted the church and were stirred
and edified by the patriotic spirit of
tho speaker whoso words and manner
epokc a sincere eulogy to the men of
'the blue who arc among tho saviours
of tho union.
Tho toldlcra of tho post assembled at
Odd Fellows hall, Salem avenue, at li.no
together with the Spanish veterans
who displayed an Interest ukln to pride
in the beautifully appropriate and
.thoughtful services of the evening. The
soldiers were under the command of
Colonel John McComb, whoso direction
of the veterans was exemplary and In
spiring. The procession of tho men In
blue from tho hall to the Congregation

It was tho first opportunity for most
I of those present to hear Rev. Mr. May
preach, and there was no one whom he
'did not profoundly Impress. His text
was from Isaluh, 2-l:."i: "And He,
God, shall Judge among the nations and
shall rebuke many people: nnd they
Eliall beat swords into plow shares and
their spears Into pruning hooks: nation
shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war any more.
"O house of Jacob, come ye and lot
us walk in tho light of tho Lord."
His discourse was as follows:
. .! .
Eev. Mr. May's Sermon.
"It is ftn" 'Inspiring thought that this
day and at this hour of service there
are being held in many of the churches
throughout tho land, special services
in memory of the brave men who have
fought for"5our Country. ; It Is proper
and llttfug' thaf'lt should bo so.
"A large portion of our many social
nnd political privileges, which mark
this nation as tho grandest among the
governments .of the world, have been
purchased by tho b'ood and strife of
the worthy dead whom wo would hold
in reverend memory today. Wo owe
much to men of war who have won tho
liberty "under which -wo have the free
school and tho free churches. And I
ani sure wo do the Grout Ruler of tho
universe no Injustice to thank Him for
their noble achievements: and wo owe
It to them to make formal public
acknowledgement of our debt of grati
tude for their service.
"What u great debt this generation
owes to the soldiers and sailors who
have, served our country in war!
"We recognise fully, I think, tho debt
wo owe to thoso-'iii'murcobscurc nnd
less exciting ..wnU;, of life,, who have
peacefully borne their cross and done
their work. The true heroes of our
nation who servo through the more
enduring agencies of peace are not for
gotten. It takes as brave a man to
withstand tho temptations of tho store
and tho street as It does to face the rain
of Shrapnpl nrpl Mauser bullets. Tho
true heroes are those who are at their
posts and maintain their ideals of life
nnd duty, wherever Gd has placed
them. Hut If you can think of tho
soldier divested of hate and cruelty,
and. the barbarity so Inseparable from
war, you will perceive. In him tho typo
of character which makes tho truo sol
dier's representative of every hern be
cause ho manifests tho principles of
service, devotion and sacrifice that un
derlie every truo life.

have had our, beloved nation. Develop-

Nothing so surely mars a woman's
complexion as coffee drinking. A
young college girl of Hnyuttsvllle, Md
says, "I never drank coffee up to the

Ing nd tho country did, out of a stato
of society In which wrong and tyranny
were maintained by force, those evils
had to ho overthrown by force. Na
tions have always been moulded In tho
red heat of ba.ttlo. All honor to the
bravo men of war who have done their
strenuous part In strengthening and
preserving tho nation. They have se
cured to us tho liberty and tho rights
wo now enjoy. Wo offer no apology
for having this patriotic service In this
house dedicated to the worship of God.
True piety und patriotism uro insep
"Think of the great heritage they
have bequeathed usl What responsibili
ties go with Its privileges! America
stands for a typo of civilization differ
ent from nnd Infinitely higher and bet
ter than the fairest dreams of any oth
er nation under tho sun. We have set
ourselves the task of teaching man to
govern himself. In European countries
the policy of governments Is fixed by
the will and interest of a power-crazed
czar, emperor, king, or haughty aris
tocracy. Hero tho government Is a ma
chine, created by ourselves for our own
purposes. It's object is to servo tho
people. The people may be learning
slowly how to put tho groat engine of
government to tho best use, but they
are learning surely,
"In purpose nnd Intent our govern
ment stands to secure each Individual
equally before the law and tho greatest
possible liberty to make tho most of his
own existence. Now, no other llug,
than the glorious Stars and Stripes, has
protected rights so valuable and hopes
so dear. Her silver stars shining from
the depth of blue, symbolize our Inten
tion nnd purpose of infinite and eternal
advancement under the guidance of
Heaven, Her white lines stand for tho
immaculate purity la which wo pro
pose to preserve our nation; and her
ljnes of deep red ur the pledge that
the life blood of tho nation Is ever ready
to How for her true honor. And the
honored dead, whose devotion to that
Flag has carried them Into the thick
of battle, are worthy our veneration.
"The younger people cannot compre
hend the tension and weight of care
under which our fntheis and mothers
lived during tho war for tho Union;
which Is sometimes called the Rebel
lion; I like to call It the War of tho
Union. Fresh in the memory of tho
older ones present are tho thoughts of
those stirring events of nearly forty
years ago The long, patient marches;
tho tramp of tens of thousands of the
Sons of Liberty, as they went forth to
leslst tho blow aimed at tho nation's
life. Tho bivouac of the legions on the
silent star-lit Held; the hardships, tho
sickness, and tho death which exposure
brought to the flower of our youth, till
the thinning of the ranks from disease
was even more terrible than the havoc
wrought by tho enemies fire. Th3 long
remembered step that went out from
the home, never to bo heard again
these tue ull fresh in tho memory of
many hero this evening. And because
of the bravo deeds wrought and tho
sacrifices made by the noble army of
our dead shall the nation's devotion
outlive, not only your memory, but the
memory of many generations yet to
come, and keep green the sod upon our
"These graves In our national coino
teries! What n potent, though silent
testimony, to the magnitude of the
awful sacrifice laid upon our national
altar In the war for the Union! There
are lU.ooo graves or tnoso wno ion ai
Chattanooga; 15,000 at Fredericksburg;
1(1,000 at Arlington; 17,000 at Vicks
burg; and at the last named place there
are about 10,000 graves marked un
known. In tho national cemeteries,
there lies tho sacred dust of more than
200,000 men whoso lives have been
yielded in war for our nation. Have
we counted" the cost too great? No!
Wo have gloried in the sacrifice. I once
heard my father say ho had seen regi
ments leave on tho transports from
Now York a thousand strong and re
turn but a few tattered, worn-out men,
whoso comrades had been left on the
fields of battle nnd death. "Yet," said
my father, "I have never yet heard a
father or a mother say tho sacrlllco
was too great." It was a sacrifice
freely offered by the patriotic heart of
tho nation, because of its awful neces
sity. Liberty and patriotism are of
greater importance than mere contin
uation of individual existence In indif
ference to the corruption and selfish
ness wnicn inreiucn mo wu ui na
tions. And all Americana are richer
today for the men who have counted
honor dearer than life. May the nation,
which, like the mighty oak, has grown
strong through tho storms that have
shaken it ever guard well the graves
of tho sacred dead, and sing over them,
In all the centuries to come, patriotic
Fongs of devotion to the llug for which
"Hut I feel that wo would bo dolus
tho heroes, who have died for the high
est life of- tho nation, a gross injustice,
if, in commemoration of their lives, we
have nothing to offer but eulogy of
their deeds of blood. Many a life has
gone out on our nation's battlefields
claiming entrance Into a society, where
thoro will bo no moro war. God has Im
pressed upon the heart of humanity an
unconquerable longing for peace, our
deeper sense of right nfllrms that war
ought not to be; and under God, what
ought not to be will not continue to
be. War wlir"not always mar tho fuco
of God's fair creation, it Is two hor
rlblo to be permitted by an enlightened
race. It Is Impossible In a Christian
stato of society, In which men seok not
to win or gain, but to serve, Already,
tho world's strife has shifted from tho
army of warriors to the moro peaceful
army of industrial workers. When tho
watchword of industry becomes not
"How Much Huvo I Secured for My
self," but "How Much nnd How Well
Huvo I Served the Rest Interests of
Society," then tho battle flags shall be
furled and tho wur drum heard no
longer In tho federation of the world,
It Is In tho nature of war to bo fol
lowed by peace, because strife tends to
exhaust tho forces by which It Is main
tained, and ends in peace. Because of
this cxhuustlon of forces, no fighting
ndtton will be ablo to compete with the
"Then again, tho great prophets have
alwuys claimed that war had no prom
inent place la human society, Isaiah
and Paul and Jesus, all prophesied a
coining state of society in which thoro
would bo no war. They saw that war
wus a mere incident in humanity's long
"The history of war f-hows what Its
terrible lessons are. ,'THJ men seek
each other's good, tere cun be no
pence; and nothing )s settled till It Is
settled right. Men, may try to settle
disputes on other lines, but, until set
tlement be madei upon principles of
equity, they come up again. So the
bravo heroes of lour country who have
fought for tio jWpht us they saw It, '
though it was relative right nnd not
absolute, still they havo helped to es
tablish the nation in traditions of
tuuth und righteousness, which shall bo
to it n band of peoco in Clod's future.
And tho most fitting way for us to
commemorate nnd honor tho brave
lives, which havo been sacrificed for
our nation, is to nccqpt them as tokens
of God's own sacrificial love, and give
our own lives In service to tho end that
our nation may be a mighty power In
tho bringing in of tho kingdom of
"When that kingdom comes and men
shall say to each other, "Come, brother,
let us walk In tho tight of tho Lord,"
"then shnll nation not lift up sword
against nation, neither shall they learn
war any more." Cut, until that time,
God shall Judge among the nations and
shall .rebuke many people," by the
scourge of war.
"God help us to bring the nations to a
knowledge of tho lessons thnt war,
through Its heroes, has taught us.
'Roll on ye worlds nnd bring us the wel
come day." Then shall men on earth
understand, as tho angels do now in
heaven, that tho winter's winds, blow
ing ho frosted leaves of tho weeping
willow over tho graves of the brave,
and exchanging with tho llower-per-fumed
breezes of Bprlng, are but mark
ing tho changing of seasons of that
same eternity of peace, where, now
those heroes sleep, who have died in
war that peace may reign through the
triumph of tho right.
"O God of tho nations! Help us to
learn from these heroes' lives that our
nation's peace can bo attained only
through unllenchlng love and devotion
to truth und gdodness."
