Upon it hung a funeral wreath and upon the wreath a strip of cardboard on which was neatly pasted a clipping from The Bee of Friday morning, telling how an un identified motorist, at Seventeenth r.nd Cuming streets. Thursday even ing, ran down and fatally inJuredYoll." Paul Stadelman, 28, crippled news boy. Thousands of people paused to lock at the chair and the wreath and clipping yesterday. Paul was a fa miliar figure to most of them. He had called his papers in all kinds of weather from that corner for a num ber of years since coming here from his former home at Plattsmouth. Newsboys "hustled" on the other three corners of Sixteenth and Doug las streets, but in life they never had trespassed on the "territory," which by unwritten law among all "news ies" of Omaha, had been ceded to Paul, and even though Paul was not there in person, the newsboys true to their years of friendship to their unfortunate brother, kept faith with the dead.

Petersen' and Oscar Trumble of Eagle were In the city for a few hours today looklner after some matters of business. Washington, Nov. 11. Under the starry skies of his own' homeland, ' America's unknown dead from France sleeps tonight, a soldier home from the wars. Alone he sleeps in the narrow cell of limestone that guards his body, but his soul has en tered into the spirit that is Ameri ca. Wherever liberty is held in men's hearts, the honor and the glory and tne pieage or nign enueavor poured out over this nameless one of fame, will be told and sung by Americans for all time. - Scrolled across the marble arch of the memoral raised to American sol dier and sailor . dead, everywhere, which stands like a monument be hind his tomb, runs this legend: "We here highly ..resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain." The words were spoken by martyr ed Lincoln, over the dead at Gettys burg. And today, with voice strong, with determination and ringing with deep emotion, another president ech oed that high resolve over the coffin of the soldier who died for the flag in France. Harding Reiterates Lincoln's Words Great men in the world's affairs heard that high purpose reiterated by the man who stands at the head of the American people. Tomorrow they will gather in the city that stands almost in the shadow of the new American shrine of liberty dedicated today. They will talk of peace; of the curbing of the havoc of war. They will speak of the war in France that robbed this soldier of life and name and brought : death to comrades of all nations by the hundreds of thous ands. And, in' their ears, when they meet must ring President Harding's declaration today beside that flag- drapped. honor-laden bier: "There must be, there shall be, the command ing voice of a conscious civilization against armed warfare." Far across the seas, other unknown dead, hallowed in memory by their countrymen, as this American soldier is enshrined in the heart of America, sleep their last. He, in whose veins ' ran the blood f British forebearers. ; lies beneath a grfit stone in ancient . Westminster Abbey: he of France, beneath the Arc de Triomphe and he of Italy, under the altar of the Fath erland in Rome. And it seemed to- j day that they, too, must be here among the Potomac hills to greet an American comrade come to Join their glorious company, to testify their ap proval of the high words of hope, spoken by America's president. Whole Nation Pays Tribute All day long, the nation poured out its heart in pride and glory for the nameless American. Before the first crash of the minute-guns roar ed its knell for the dead, from the shadow of Washington monument, the people who claim him as their own were trooping out to do him honor. They lined the hillside, where he sleeps tonight; they flowed like a tide over the slopes about his burial place; they choked the bridges that lead across the river to the fields of the brave, in which he is the latest comer. As he was carried past thru the banks of humanity that lined Penn sylvania avenue, a solemn hush held the living walls. Yet, there was not fo much of sorrow as of high pride in it all, a pride beyond the reach of shouting and the clamor that marks less sacred moments in life. Out there in the avenue was a simple soldier, dead for honor of the flag. He was nameless. No man knew what part in the great life of the na tion he had filled when last he pass ed over his home soil. But in France he had died as Americans always have been ready to die. for the flag and what it means. Thev read the message of the pageant clear; these silent thousands along the way. They stood in almost holv awe to take their own part In what was theirs, the glory of the ' American people honored here in the honors showered on America's nameless son from France. President In Procession Soldiers, sailors and marines all played their part in the spectacle as the cortege rolled along.. And just behind the casket, with its faded French flowers on "the draped flag, walked the president, the chosen leadeirp4-)a hundred million dn whose name uWJwas' chiMf mourner at ; this bier. Beside him. strode the man un der whom the fallen "hero had lived and died in France, General Persh ing, wearing only the single medal of victory that every American sol dier might wear as his only decora tion. Then, row on row came the men who lead the nation today, or have guided its destWigs before. They were all there, witljlng proudly witli &ge and frailties'oT the flesh forgot ten. Juflges, senators, representa tives JKiiliest offlctrs'of every mili tary arm of government and a trudg ing little group of the nation's most valorous eons, the medal of honor men. Some were gray; and bent, and I drooping with old wounds; some I trim and erect as the day they won which rode Woodrow Wilson, also stricken down -by infirmities as he served in-the highest place of the nation, just as the humble private riding in such state ahead, had gone down before shell or bullet. For that dead man's sake, the former president had put aside his dread of seeming to parade his physical weakness and risked health, perhaps life, to appear among the mourners for the fallen mere was nanaciappmg ana a cheer here and there for the man in the carriage, a tribute to the spirit that brought Mm to honor the na tion s nameless hero, whose com mander-in-chief he had been. The March to Arlington After President Harding and most of the high dignitaries of the gov ernment had turned aside at the white house, the procession headed by its blocks of soldiery, and the bat talions of sailor comrades, moved on with Pershing, now flanked by Sec retaries Weeks and Denby, for the long road to the tomb. It marched on, always between the human bord ers of the way of victory the nation had made for itself of the great aven ue; on over the old bridge that spans the Potomac on up the long hill to Fort Myer and at last, to the gate of the great cemetery beyond where sol dier and sailor folk sleep bv the thousands. There, the lumbering guns of the artillery swung aside, the cavalry drew their horses out of the long line and left to the foot sol diers and sailors and marines, the last stage of the Journey. amphitheatre gleamed thru the trees. amphitheatre bleamed thru the trees. It stands crowing the slow slope of the Mils that sweep upward from the river and Just across was Wash ington, its clustered buildings and monuments to greet dead who have gone before, a moving picture in. the aulumn haze. People in thousands were moving about the great circle of the amphi theatre . The great ones to whom places had been given in the sacred enclosure and the plain folk who trudged the long way just to glimpse the pageant from afar, were finding their places. Everywhere, within the pillared enclosure bright uniforms of foreign soldiers appeared. They were laden with the jeweled orders of rank and merit worn to honor an Ameri can private soldier, greater than any there in the majesty of his sacrifices; in the tribute hl3 honors were paid to all Americans who died. Down below the platform, placed for the casket, in a stone vault, lay wreaths and garlands brought from '.England's king and guarded by Brit ish soldiers. To them came the Brit ish ambassador in the full uniform of his rank, to bid them keep these trib utes from overseas safe against that hou r. Many Foreign Dignitaries Above the platform gathered men whose names ring thru history. Bri- and, Foch, Beatty, Balfour, Jacques, Diaz, and others in a brilliant array cf place and power. They were fol lowed by others. Baron Kato from Japan, the Italian statemen and offi cers, by the notables from all coun tries gathered here for tomorrow's conference and by some of the older figures In American life too old to walk beside the approaching funeral train. Down around the circling pillars, the marble boxes filled with dis tinguished men and women, with a cluster of shattered men from army hospitals, accompanied by uniformed nurses, A surpliced choir took its place to await the dead. Faint and distant, the silvery strains of a military band stole into the big white bowl of the amphithe atre. The slow cadences and mourn ing notes of a funeral march grew clearer and the roll and mutter of the muffled drums. At the arch where the choir wait ed, the hero comrades of the dead, lifted his casket down and, followed by the generals and the' admirals, who had walked beside him from the capitoI, he was carried to the place of honor. Ahead, moved the white robed singers, chanting solemnly. Careful ly, the casket was placed above the banked flowers and the marine band played sacred melodies until the mo ment the president and Mrs. Hard ing steDped to their places behind the casket; then the crashing trium phant chords of the Star Spangled Banner swept the gathering , to its feet again. Two Minute Pause at Neon A prayer, carried out over the crowd by amplifiers so that no word was missed, took a moment or two, then the sharp, clear call of the bu gle rang "attention" and for two minutes, the nation stood at pause for the dead, just at high noon. No sound broke the quiet as all stood with bowed heads. It was much as tho a mighty hand had checked the word of America, from the hosts within and without. President Harding stepped forward beside the coffin to say for America I the thing that today was nearest to the nation's heart, that sacrifices such as this nameless man, fallen in battle, might perhaps be made un necessary down thru coming years. Every word that President Harding spoke reached every person thru the amplifiers and reached other thous ands upon thousands In New York , and San Francisco. j l Mr. Harding showed strong emo-i tion as his lips formed the last words of the address. He paused, then with raised hand and head bowed, went on in the measured, rolling period of the Lord's prayer. The response that came back from the other thousands out over the slopes beyond, perhaps from still other thousands away near the Pacific or close packed in the' heart of the nation's greatest city. ! rose like a chant. The marble arches hummed with the solemn sound. Burial Ritual Spoken The simple words of the burial ritual were said by Bishop Brent, flowers from "war mothers of Ameri ca and England were laid in place. For the Indians of America Chief Plenty Coos came to call upon the great spfrit - of "the red men, with gesture and chant and tribal tongue Upon the casket he laid the coup stick of his tribal office" and the feathered war bonnet from his own head. Then the casket, with its weight of honors, was loVered into the crypt. . A rocking blast of gunfire rang from the woods. The glittering circle of bayonets stiffened to a salute to the dead. Again, the guns shouted their message of honor and farewell, again they boomed out; a loyal com rade was being laid to his last, long rest. High and clear and true in the echoes of the guns, a bugle lifted the old, old notes of taps, the lullaby for the living soldier, in death his re quiem. Long ago some forgotten poet caught its meaning clear and set it down that soldiers everywhere might know its message as they sink to rest: v "Fades the light; And afar, goeth day, cometh night, And a star, leadeth all, speedeth all, To their rest." The guns roared out again in the national salute. He was home, the unknown, to sleep forever among his own. If It Is a Bilious Attack Take three of Chamberlain's Tab lets and a quick recovery is certain. JOHN BEES0N POORLY For the past few days John Beeson has been quite sick at his home south of the city suffering from an attack of what seems to be the grippe, but is now reported as being somewhat batter. John seems to be on the mend and this will be pleasing news to his many friends over the city. Lose anything? Find anything? Try a Journal want-ad.
