PRESENT DAY THOUGHTS
(Coiyu righted by Diiwc it Tabor )
what particular reason
have we for decotating the grave of
tho dead? Let not our reason be that
wo are followers of custom' That par
takes of the unrclicctivcucss of the
savage who nu rely imitates when he
adds another stone to the cairn that lie
passes. Il is our.s rather to realize that
't$ tills season of decoration has 'meaning;
'Yjlthat its chief actors are people who
'think and who use flowers and coic-
monies iitetoly as suiface indications
of a deep heart-feeling.
i Do theso acts of ours even inuicst
the dead? Who can tell? But one
wi old think thai if, in conscious life
I beyond the sighing of earth, they are
able to estimate deeds at their right
valuation, the greatest and the hiavest
of them are rozretful that they were
not ablu to accomplish a hundred fold
more than they did either in living or
in (lying for tho idea Your littlo to-
kun of appreciation and mine may per
chance please them but it cannot do
for them a tithe of what the showing
of that appreciation can do for us.
Ilorcin the true valuo of our tender
regard for the dead, of the vollies we
lire, of tho flowers we strew, of the
flags wo wave, of tho consecrated
words we uttor. Tho valuo and tho
gain aro to us-ward who live and move
in a glorious era of united feeling
which thoso slocping eyes would have
flashed joyously to seo. It is we who
are benefitted by theso exercises
Animals look on the dead even
those of their own kind and soon for
get or scarcely notico. But wo sentient
beings return after tho silent glidings
of many years, of centuries even, to
look on the places of tho dead and to
honor them. Why? Because tho death
of tho doer of deeds among men stops
his doing but does not stop tho effects
of the deeds ho did. The- truth of this
is apparent in a moment, if wo reflect
as wo glance downward to tho turf
covered mounds at our feet, that bo
cause theso men had beliofs and lived
them out wo art able to stand around
them united in one great national
whole. The bodies lying there have
rest from their labors, but tho labor re
mains, and greater things than they
did shall wo do, because human labor
is cumulative and becauso wo live to
carry on what dying hands havo drop
ped. Human progtess is liko the
growth of tho printing press from the
slow simplicity of tho lever and screw
to tho complicated mastodons that
thunder out human thought more
swiftly than tho cyo can follow. Tho
machine is made up of infinitely small
improvements by an iniinito number of
mechanics, each one adding somothing
to tho work of construction that lias
already boon effected. Thus it is with
our national life. Our Revolutionary
heroes died to mako a nation. Time
passed and showed that strength was
in union. Our heroes of the late war
died to keop that nation inseparable
forever and ever. Again tho years
rolled on over a period of expansion
unexampled in tho history of the
world. Now is tho time whon wo tho
inheritors ol thoso motionless bones at
our feet go ono step furthor and do
clare that a nation born in noblostriio,
bapti.cd later in its own precious
blood, has risen to tho slaturo of a man
and preaches to a great bullish world a
now evangel; that a nation great in
its own development, great in its tri
umph over tiials, gieat in its prosperity
is not too great to bo deaf to a wail of
woo from its weak neighbor, and is not
too proud to cast its own offering on
the altar of another's Hheity, though
that offering cost dear In tho monoy of
its men and tho sous of its mothers.
I have only a wind for tliosocavillers
wlio would credit all .suits of small mo
tives to the speechless dead, draining
tlio ti nth of every pettiness that can bo

a position to say of each of them, "Ho

do not .say, because- the feet are un
conscious of wheio the will directs
them, no credit is due them for running

among us can dare to sil in judgment
on motives. A look within and a fair
analysis of our most holy acts will re

Wo give below a couple of very com

man taken from the papers of Oquawka
Illinois. The gentleman had gone to
Watikegan, Illinois, at the time theso
notices were published but on account
of tho subsequent sickness and death
of a member of his family ho could not
give attention to his business at Wati
kegan and become a permanent resi
dent. On this account ami by tho
wishes ot friends he decided to locate
in this city. The Chief wishes him
success in his now iield.
E. U. Overman left for Waukegan
Tuesday w lie re tho linn of Overman &
Safford will ho continued. Tho linn
havo been in business here tho past six
or seven years and built up a largo
practice. Tho lirm lias been eminently
successful in conducting cases, espec
ially, chancery cases where a
largo amount of propetty was involved.
They always gave business prompt at
tention, to which their success was
hugely duo. They have tho best wishes
of their many friends hero for future
prosperity. Hendei. son County Demo

Yesterday, Tuesday, Mr. and Mrs.
E. U. Overman left this city, their
homo during tho last six ypars, for
Waukegan, Ills., where they will in tho
future reside. They leave behind many
friends who will i egret their departure.
It is not a lack of business that induces
this move on the part of Messrs. Over
man & SitiTotd, for they have certainly
done will and prospered in tho accu
mulation of tho world's gear during
their residence hero, but a desire for a
wider Held and the establishment of a
business Unit will justify making a per
manent residence. Mr. Overman lias
been for six years States Attorney of
tliis county. Ho is noted for ills hust
ling qualities ami ability as an orator.
Mr. baff'oid devotes largely his atten
tion to the preparation of cases and
office work and together they make a
strong team m tho legal line. Hero'n
