A DAUGHTER OF REVOLUTION
That two human lives should have
spanned the years since the revolu
tionary war to. the present day was
pronounced an unusual and notable
incident in longevity by the Rev. Dr.
Robert L. Wheeler as he coducted
6Bire mmtia at rort Ticonaeroga.
"It was the happiest funeral I have
ever attended", said a well known
woman. "Not happy in the sense of
festivity, but with appreciation of a
long life well spent, and of a readi
ness to go when the call came. As a
pioneer of Nebraska, who had spent
sixty of the eighty-nine years of her
life here, and with a revolutionary
soldier father, 'Aunty Tewksbury
was a notable figure in local his
tory." Commenting on these things, Dr.
Wheeler appealed to the friends pres
ent apd to Daughters of the Ameri
can Revolution, of Which society the
deceased was an honored member, to
cherish the ideals of the founders of
the American republic. There has
never been a period in American his
tory when greater need existed for
holding fast to principles on which
the government was founded. Amer
icans should stand by their colors,
not onyl old Glory, with its red
white and blue, but to the principles
of justice and liberty, religion and
borne, the things that make the mdi-
vjdual life honorable and praiseworr
thy and the national life an object
lesson to the world.
Clean living and upright " dealing
do not. necessarily make for puritani
cal and austere living, but they do
exalt the individual and the cause
he would support.
A child of the American revolution
jias joined the ranks over there, but
the patriotic principles she upheld
live on in the hearts of her friends,
among the most notable of them be
ing her pastor, Dr. Wheeler, who
erves his country and his pod by
serving bis-fellow men. World-Herald.
