On the 6unday alter decoration day
Eev. T. DcWitt Talmaj preached an
.appropriate sermon at Brooklyn. Hia
subject was: "Two Garlands lor North-
crn and Southern Graves." Over the
pulpit were two wreaths ol beautiful
flowers, and they were linked together
so that they were an object lesson ol
the subject presented. His text was
from Isaiah 43, G: "I will say to the
North. Give up, and to the South, Keep
not back." Dr. Talmagc said:
Jmt what my text meant by the
north and south, I cannot say, but in
the United States the two words are so
point blank in their meaning that no
one can doubt. They mean more than
east and west, for although between
those two last there hare been rivalries
and disturbing ambitions and infelici
ties and silver bills and world's fair
controversies, there have been between
them no batteries unlimbcred, no en
trenchments dug, no long lines ol
sepulchral mounds thrown up. It has
never been Massachusetts fourteenth
regiment against "Wisconsin zouaves; it
lias never been Virginia artillery
against Mississippi rifles. East and
wrst are distinct words and some
times maj- mean diversity of in
terest, but there k bo blood on
them. They can be produced without
anj- intonation of wailing and death
groan. Jtut the north and the south
are words that have been surcharged
with tragedies They are words which
suggest that for forty years the clouds
had leen gathering for a fouryearr'
tempest which thirty years ago burst in
a fury that shook this planet as it has
never been shaken since It swung out
at the first world building. I thank
God that the words have lost some of
the intensity which they possessed
three decades ago; that a vast multitude
of northern people have moved south
and a vast multitude of southern people
have moved north and there have been
intermarriages by the ten thousand,
and northern colonels have married the
daughters of southern captains, and
Texas rangers have united lor life with
the daughters of New York abolition
ists,aud their children are half northern
and half soutiicrn and altogether patri
otic. Hut north and south are words that
need to be brought into still closer har
monization. I thought that now when
we are half way between presidential
elections and sectional animosities are
at the lowest ebb, and now just after a
presidential journey when our chief
magistrate, who was chiefly elected by
the north, has lecn cordially received
at the south, and now just after two
memorial days, one of them a month
ago strewing flowers on southern graves
and tho other yesterday strewing flow
ers on northern graves, it might le ap
propriate and useful for me to preach a
sermon which would twist two gar
lauds, one for the northern dead and
the other for the southern dead, and
liave the two interlocked in a chain of
flowers that shall bind forever the two
sections into one; and who knows but
that this may be the day when the
prophecy of tho text, made in re
gard to the ancients may bo fulfilled in
regard to this country and the north
give up its prejudices and the south
keep not back its confidence. "I will
suy to the north, give up, and to the
south, keep not back."
Hut before I put these garlands on
the graves, 1 mean to put them this
morning a little while on the brows of
tho living men and vjomen of the north
and south who lost husbands and sons
and brothers during the civil strife
There is nothing more soothing to a
wound than a cool bandage, and these
two garlands arc cool from the night
dew. What a morning that was on the
banks of the Hudson and the Savannah
when the son was to start for the Avar!
"What fatherly and motherly counsel!
"What tears! What heart breaks! What
charges to write home often! What lit

seemed after they ent home and what
an awfully vacant chair there was at
the Christinas and Thanksgiving table!
And after the battle, what waiting for

Tho world has forgotten it, but father

They may be bow in the eighties or

and will always remain a fresh wound.
Coming down the steep ol years the
hands that would have steadied those
tottering steps have been twenty-eight
years folded into the last sleep. The
childlessness, the widowhood, the or

going down to death!
1 detain from the top of the tomb
these two garlands that I am twisting
for a little while that 1 may with them
soothe the brow of the living. Over
the fallen the people said: "Poor fel
low! What a pity that he should have
been struck down?" We did not, how
ever, often enough say: "Poor father!
Poor mother! Poor wife! Poor child!"
and so I say it now. Have you realized
that by that wholesale massacre hun
dreds of thousands of young people at
the north and south have never had any
chance? We who are fathers stand be
tween our children and the world. We
fight their battles we plan for their
welfare, we achieve their livelihood,
we give them the advice of oar eepe
iior years. Among the richest bleesiags
ol my life I thank God that ay father
lived to fight my battles until I was old
enought to fight-for myself. Have you
realised the lact that toer civil war
pitched out upon the farm fields of the
north and the plantations of the south
a multitude that no man can number,
children without fatherly help and pro
tection? Under all the advaatages which we
had of fatherly guidance, what a stran
gle life has been to most of es! Sot
what of the children, two and five aed
ten years of age, who" stood at their 1
mother's lap with great, round, won
dering eyes, hearing her read of those
who perished in the battle ol the wil
derness, their lather goae down aaid
the dead host? Come, young men mad
young women who Tjj such disaster
have had to" make your own way in life,
and I will put the gar '.aad on your
young and un.rrrin.kled brow. Yet;
you hare had yonr on Malreni Hill
and your owa South Mouataia, and
your own Gettysburg all along these
twenty years. Come! And if I cannot
spare a whole garland lor your brow, I
will twist k yoar locks at least twe
flowers, one crimson and oae white,
the crimson lor the straggle of yoar
life which has almost amounted to
carnage, and the white for Ibe rktory
yoa have gained.
Before I put the two garlands I am
twisting upon the northern and south
ern tombs, I detain the garlands a little
while that I may put them apoa the
brow ol the living soldiers and sailors
ol the north and south, who, though in
variance lor a loeg while, are aow at
peace and in hearty loyalty to the
United States government aad ready,
il need be, to march shoulder to shoul
der against aay foreign foe.
The twenty-six winters that have
passed since the war, I think, have suf
ficiently cooled the hatreds that once
burned northward and southward to al
low the remark that tbey who fought
in that conflict were honest on both
sides. The chaplains of both armies
were honest in their prayers. The
faces that went into battlo, whether
they marched toward the Gull ol Mex
ico or marched toward the north star,
w ere honest laces. It is too much to ask
either side to believe that those who
came out from their homes, forsaking
lather and mother and wife "and child,
many of them never to return, were not
In earnest when they put their life into
awful exigency. Witness the last scene
at family prayers up among the Green
mountains or down by the fields of cot
ton and sugar cane. Men do not sacri
fice them all for fun. Men do not eat
moldy bread or go without bread at all
lor lun. Men do not sleep unsheltered
in equinoctial storms for fan. There
were some no doubt on both sides who
enlisted for soldiers' pay or expecting
opportunity for violence and pillage or
burning with revenge, and thirst for
human blood, but such cases were so
rare many of you who were in the war
four years never confronted such an in
stance of depravity.
As chaplain of a Pennsylvania regi
ment and as a representative of the
United States Christian commission, I
was for a while at the front and in
those hospitals at Hagerstown and
Williamsburg and up and down the
Potomac, where all the churches and
farm houses were filled with wounded
and dying Federals and Confederates.
I forgot amid the horrors to ask on
which side they fought, when with
what little aid I could take them lor
the suffering bodies and the mightier
aid I could for their souls. I passed the
days and months amid scenes that in
my memory seem like a ghastly dream
rather than possible reality. When a
New Orleans boy, unable to answer my
question as to where he was hurt, took
out from the folds of the only garment
that had not been torn off him in the
battle a New Testament marked
with his own life blood, and I
saw the leaf turned down at the
passage: "My peace I give unto
you, not as the world givcth give I
unto you," it read just as though it had
been a northern New Testament And
when 1 sat down and took from a South
Carolinian dying in a barn at Boones
villc his last message to his wife and
mother nnd child, it sounded just like a
message that a northern man dying far
from home would send to his wife and
mother and child. And when I picked
up from the battlefield of An tic tarn the
fragment of a letter which I have some
where 3'et for the name and the ad
dress were torn off, I saw it was the
words of a wife to her husband telling
him how the little child prayed for
their father every night that he might
not get hurt in -the battle and might
come home well, but that if anything
happened to them they might all meet
again in the world where there are no
partings, it read just as a northern wife
would write to a husband away from
home and in peril conveying tho mes
sages of little children. 0, yes, they
were honest on lioth sides. And those
who lived to get home and arc living
yet were just as honest, and ought they
not for the suffering they endured have
a coronal of some kind?
Yes, there was courage on both sides.
They who were at the front know that
When the war opened the south called
the northern men "mudsills." and the
north called the southern men "hrag
garts" and "pompous nothings," but
after a few battles nothing more was
said aliout northern "mudsills" and
southern "braggarts." It was an army
of lions against an array of lions. It
was a flock of eagles mid-sky with iron
licnk against another flock of eagles
iron beaked. It was thunderbolt
against thunderbolt It was archangel
of wrath against archangel of wrath.
It was Hancock against Iongstrect
It was Kilpatrick against Wade Hamp
ton. It was Slocura against Hill. It
was O. O. Howard against Hood. It
was Sherman against Stonewall .lack

the men who were under them were
just as gallant, and some of them are

erals and Confederates. North and
south, we make a great luss about
them when they arc dead. There will
not le room on their tombstones to tell
how much we appreciate them. We
shall call out the military and explode
three volleys over their graves, making
all the cemetery ring under our com
mand of "Fire!" We will have long
obituary in newspapers telling in what
battles they fought, what sacrifices
they endured, what flags they captured,
in what prisons they suffered, but all
that will come too late. One word in
the living car of praise lor their hon
esty and courage will be worth to them
more than a military funeral two miles
long or a pile ol flowers half a mile
high and tea bands of music plaving
over the grave "Star Spangled Banner"
or "Way Down South in Dixie."
Now, while they are in their declin

THE FIJI ISLANDS.
Cannlballaaa and Mare-Trading Thing t
A generation ago the name Fiji was a
common symbol for the grossest and
most repulsive savagery. The natives
were not simply cannibals, but their
cannibalism was aa every day affair,
forming a necessary element in every
The sovereignty of the islands was
first offered to England, after a dis
tressing history of internal fends, ia
185S, but the commissioner sent out to
investigate reported adversely. Mean
while the influx of English and other
European settlers increased, and a
stab!e government became a necessity.
In 1S69, accordingly, the protectorate
was again offered to England and like
wise to the United States, but neither
power cared to undertake the dubioaa
responsibility. Two years later a brief
experiment of constitutioaal govern
ment under a native prince was tried,
but this failed and Great Britain anally
came to the rescue of the civilised set
tlers by accepting the sovereignty of
the islands, thas securing, t the same
time, a wished-for port of call om the
route from Australia to Panama.
The administrative forms mtredaced
among the Fijts are not peculiar eaeagh
to call for any long discussion. Here,
as elsewhere, the policy has been,
while doing away with savagery, to
treat native usages as gently as pos
sible. The governor ol Fiji is High
Commissioner of the Western Paciac,"

GOOD RESULTS CERTAIN.
Milk tha Beat an Meat Kroaom'eal
Vo for Leaaba.
I make a specialty of sheep and horses
and raise but few pigs, and so cannot
tell the relative profit from feeding
skim milk to pigs and lambs. I keep
cows on purpose to pet both fresh and
skim milk for colts and Iambs and have
done so for some time with favorable
results. Such milk puts the bone and
muscle growth into all young animals
wihout making them too fat and with
out danger of over feeding them. I feed
the lambs until they are one month old
milk skimmed after standing twelve
hours only; then they will drink
any kind of skim milk. In cold weath
er, I warm the milk and mix with it
ground oats and oil meal, and from
such feed I can get all the growth 1
want in either lambs or colts. Early
lamb raising is profitable when intelli
gence and close attention are given to
the business, and in my mind early
lamb raising is in its infancy in our
country. In the first place. Iambs are
usually dropped in Maj', so that the
ewes can be on grass in warm weather
and they get no special attention. This
is wrong. The loss of lambs is too
great owing to such neglect Thirty
per cent more larolm will be saved if
dropped in February, while the sheep
are in wiBter quarters, where tbey can
have the shepherd's care in lamhing
and have their feed regulated as re
quired under different circumstances
and where the ewes can be made to
mother their lambs. Then, too, oar
people are learning to cat and hence
demand good mutton, which early lamb
growing aad forcing can alone supply.
With pork aad mutton at present
prices, we should raise early mutton
lambs and feed them liberally with
skimmed milk, but should give with it,
either mixed or separately, oil meal to
counteract the constipation induced by
the milk. U. E. llreck, in Rural New

Artists consider Holland a finer place
to get gKxl subjects for their pictures

When a person has a projier pose the
chest is naturally prominent and that
makes a curve in the spine above the
hips and throws the hips prominently
outward, preserving a graceful outline
in both back and front of the figure.
Hut when the figure Is depraved with
corsets, the spine is straightened, the

The poor man was never allowed to

her suffering husband a chance to laugh
