H la In need of true men and women.
What w heed U young, men and younr
woman who "believe In righteousness, who
ara prepared to lead the higher Mfe and
who will always be ready to help the down
trodden. When you go out Into the life
before you I hope you will be admired for

I wants gold .merely for the pleasure of
harlng It Jingle In hi pocket. Ha wants
lit for tha power It brings. White, what
dees It denote? It denotes the pure life.
Get all the gold and fame you can but
nothing in thla world la to be compared
to the pure life. When you go forth In
the world remember that a pura life will
mean far mora to you thai all the gold and
fame which you may obtain."
Pr. Wadsworth took as hla text a por
tion of the Lord's prayer, 'Thy Kingdom
Come, Thy Will be Done on Earth as It
la In Heaven." .
The church he said was frequently criti
cized fur thinking loo. much about the next
vcrld and not enough about this. Thought
of the future world, he said, should not
be permitted to obscure our vision to the
needs of thla world. Mora thought should
be given to making -a kingdom of God on
To bring thla about, the speaker aaid. It
first must be a kingdom of faith and em
phasizing tha kind of faith ha referred to
he aald It was that great, auperb faith
which ehouM be the motive power for every
notion. Faith he said should underly every
v.orl and action. : Secondly It must be a
...rgdorn of ligl-.ttousnesa In which men
must stand up for that which la right.
Ha referred to .righteousness In politics,
and decried graft in public office. Third,
It must be a kingdom of peace. Arbitra
tion. Dr. . Wadsworth declared, ought to j
settle all dlsputea between man and man, I
nation and na.loh and between capital ana
labor. Arbitration ahould be the amicable
aolution of all disputes' Lastly it nit be
solution oi an oisputes. lastly it must be ,
kingdom of service. A man's greatness
must be measured by the service rendered.
In. this connection Dr. 'Wadsworth quoted
from- Bryna'a London speech aa the higher
conception ' of life, ; the realisation of the
brotherhood of man, 'of man's responsibili
ty, to God? and thd value of service.
The auditorium was filled by the parents
and friends of the graduating class. Super

Brigadier General Morton Delivers
Address at Prospect Hill.
CADET TAYLOR READS THE ROLL
Anaaal Memor?al aervlcea of Coin
pany ! First Nekiaska Volan- '
teen. Held at Monament
la the Cemetery. N
The seventh annual memorial services
In honor of the dead of Company U First
Nebraska United States Volunteer in
fantry, Thurston Rifles, waa held Satur
day afternoon at the Company L monu
ment In Prospect Hill cemetery In the
presence of a IsrgG number of friends
and relatives and members of the Thurfc
ton Rlflea association.
Cadet Taylor acted aa master of cere
monies and opened the proceedings with
a brief reference to the day and occa
sion. The first of these services were
held aeven years ago In St. Mary's Ave
nue Congregational church.
A quartet consisting of Mlsa Alice
Schandler, Miss Louise Brookfleld, J. J.
Naven and Sllvlan Burkenrod then sang
"The Vacant Chair."
The Invocation waa delivered by Rev.
Addison E. Knickerbocker of St.
Mathlas' Episcopal church.
Cadet Taylor then gave an Interesting
sketch of Company L and, its servlcea
during the Spanish-American war and at
the outbreak of the Philippine Insurrec
tion. ' '
Five Lie Near the Monament.
He read the list of the dead of the com-
p.iy who lost their lives during the
Spanish-American war. five of whom
were buried near the monument wrected
to the memory of the company. Others
were burled elsewhere, one in Massachu
setts, another in Missouri, another in
Iowa, and two or 'three in their private
family lots elsewhere In the Omaha cem
eteries. Tha company lost nine of lta
members In the Spanish-American war
and six have alnce died, some of whom
are burled jiear the monument.
The total enlistment of the company
waa 107. Fifteen of Its members have
died. Eighteen were wounded in action
in . the Philippines and nine lost their
lives in that faraway land. The com
pany waa in twenty-two engagements.
Thirty-three per cent of the company
were killed or wounded In action. Mr.
Taylor read a brief extract from the ad-
dreas of the late John N. Baldwin, de
livered at the banquet given to Company
L at the Millard hotel in Omaha upon
the return of the company from the
Mr. O'Nell sang a baritone solo, "Sleep
On," following which Rev. A. E. Knlcker
bocker, formerly chaplain of the Second
Nebraska regiment, United States Vol
unteer Infantry, delivered a short memo
rial addresa. He spoke of the beauty
and pathos of these memorial occasions,
which, he aald, were each year being ob
served with deeper reverence and urged
that these men have left a heritage of
patriotism and loyalty to duty that can
not ba overestimated.
The quartet then sang the "Memorial
General Morton's Tribute.'
Brigadier General Charles Morton, U. S.
An commanding the Department of the
Missouri, followed with a short address,
"We all respect persons of convictions, be
those convictions right or wrong," said he.
"and when men are ready to lay down
their lives for their patriotic convictions It
Is our duty to. revere and cherish their
memories. An Incident: that, haa left a
lasting Impression on my memory was that
I waa privileged to be one of the funeral
escort to General Wlnfleld Scott, w;ho was
bUrled May "19, 1S66. There were- present on
that occasion about a doxen of the old
veterana , of the war of 1812. These men
were given the position of honor and were
given the same distinguished consideration
that the president of the United States and
other great officers of the government were
given who attended these ceremonies. The
motives that actuated these old veterans
were, the same that actuated the soldiers
of the Spanish-American war. Letts give
to these younger soldiers the same honor
and glory we give to the older veterans.
It waa my good fortune to be asaoclated
at tlmea with the old First Nebraska, and
I knew Its colonel, General Thayer, well. I
also knew tho colonel of the newer First
Nebraska who lost his life in battle at the
head of his regiment In the Philippines. It
always happens It la the beat men who fall
In battle." '
The audiencee then sang "America," led
by the quartet, after which a detachment
of Company L, First Nebraska National
Guards, ,firedt) a triple volley In salute for
the dead, and then "taps" were blown by
the bugler of the company.
Upon the conclusion of the services, tha
members of the Thuraton Rlflea association
fell In line and passed in front of General
Morton, ahaking hands with him and thank
ing him and the other participants In the
program for the services.
I N ION miNTERI HOLD SERVICES
Memorial Day Addrras Delivered by
.Labor Commissioner Ryder.
Sunday waa Memorial day for the union
prlntera of Omaha and local No. 190 held
aervlcea at lta hall In ' Labor temple on
Douglas street. Deputy State Labor Com
missioner John J. Ryder, himself a printer
by trade and an old member of tha union,
came up from Lincoln to make the address.
Mr. Ryder said:
Ben Franklin ' ordered that the word
"Printer" be given prominence on his
tombstone above all other words indicating
his calling in life. He was proud of his
craft, and aa a master of p illosphy he
knew the great usefulness to the world at
large of the prlntera who have lived and
aerved. Recalling the memories of our
sleeping craftamen today we will find little
really to lament for, except that we always
wish they had tarried a little loneer in
j the game of life. In our craft, above all
Oiners, pern, t i i v, iu umBin-
Ing the philosophy of human life, of the
daily atruggle; and we learn the empti
nesa of ambition at first hand, as we' pu'
into Ivm the failures, the mistakes, the re-
grela, tne recoru oi mist-iieua mm aeeins
at times to far outweigh the good, the true
and satisfying. When the tifne comes, oiK
of the calinneva and the understandiag we
have uneonaclously taken to ourselves, we
can accept the test and the mystery of
death with equanimity.
It la not unseemly to assert we are today
honoring ouraelves with a new lesson in
living as we publicly pay honor to the
primers, the unionists, I lie altruists, who
are dead. Every trade unionist who takes
aertous thought for his' cause and works
for the good of his rraft in clean ways, is
an altruist above all else; and while tho
men may die. the doctrine they worked for
and stood for with their earnings, to which
thev gave ungrudged time and much af
fection, cannot die, because humanity
needs It. I'nselflshnesf is the most potent
force in true unionism, and It Is the baais
of altruism. The men whom names we re
call today to honor even aa we repeat fare,
well were of those who shortened rhe week
that all who needed work might liavj a
share. They strove as beat they could to
shorten the . day. that greater assurance
might be made of a chance for all to work
who deaiied. They gave cheerfully tithes
from their earnings, aa the devoteea of
old. and for aa holy a caua. aa we verily
believe. Living men are benefitting daily.
In comparative comfort, and In aurcease
from the sorrow of Indigency, through the
self aacriftte of these who were, but now
are not. Apart from reverently kept bur'ni
p4tts and graven monuments they have
shrines In human h'arta; (hey kept the
faith, they gave of their substance In full
measure. It may be they died poor, as tha
world views It: the book of life kept by
the critical angel may fell another atory.
Thoughts of death and the rrave are not
fdeasant. but they ahould be profitable. He
a a aironser mtn who faces squarely and
cslmly, and givea serious consideration, to
II. e tomorrow when he will take on tne
tllgnliy of death that today enwraps our
brothers. They have quit the dispel tor
the great union meeting that never i.d
Ji'iirrm. that we call elcinlty, and shortly
we shall airlve wher- tm-y are waiting In
the slindow land. We gHther to lay on
memory a shrine the chaiuet of our brotn
erly regard, aa much because the act in
spirea wholesome thought as for anv other
reason. We hall them, and they answer
not; hut we aet the response In our own
hearts, "All la well; we shall meet sgain
In God's own Sunday morning "
In our minds we call un pictures of old-
tirne friends, and we are betier for the sol
emn soul communion. Holding fast to the
hope of immortality that possesses every
unconquerable soul, we feel the spiritual
thrill that comes ever more strongly
through sorrow than through Joy. But we
may witn propriety set even the claims oi
grim death aside as we rejoice In the faith
that makes us claim the dead brothera for
our own again when we meet on this Me
morial Sunday. Those who knew them in
the home will have In mind, not their
shrouded forms, but the quick end living
men who talked, and walked, and worked,
and were fond and true, responsive to all
the claims of love, of filial devotion and
of duty. They will remember the home
maker, the burden-bearer, who struggled,
perhaps fell, yet stuck to his task like a
man. Tender memories will throng the pic
ture, lovable qualities and good deeds
warm the thoughts of other days. Msy

TAFT ANSWERS HIS CRITICS
What He Said of Grant Simply Set
Oat Strensrth of General's
WASHINGTON. June l.-Secretary of
War William H. Taft. when apprised to
night that comment had been caused by his
reference In his Memorial day address in
New York to General Grant's resignation of
the army before the civil war, made tho
following statement to the Associated Press:
"I am very much distressed that anything
I have said be construed to be an attack
on General Grant's memory. I yield to no
man In my admiration for General Grant,
In my high estimate of hla remarkable qual
ities and character and of the debt the
nation owes him. In my memorial address
I attributed his resignation from the army
In ISM to hla weakness for strong drink,
because from Mr. Garland's lire of General
Grant and the evidence he cites and from
ther histories, I' supfcosed it was undoubt
edly true. - i
"I referred to the matter only because It
seemed to me that It was one of the great
victories of his life that he subsequently
overcame the weakness The wonder of his
life waa that with all the discouragementa
that he encountered before the civil war.
including this, he became tha. nation's chief
Instrument In suppressing the rebellion. I
venture to say that no Impartial man can
read my Memorial day address and say I do
not give to General Grant a place In his
tory at hlfjh aa that given him by any of
his historians or his admirers.
"The lives of our great men belong to the
country. If facts arc , told showing that
they had weaknesses- which they overcame.
the force of thefr successful example Is
greater to lift thtk youth of the country up
to emulate them than If they are painted as
perfect, without - temptation and without
weaknesses." " ' ' .,, .

GREAT FALLS, Mont. June li-The
holdup last night, of the northbound Great
Northern train at the stock yards, about
a mile and a half from this city, was tha
work of three boys, who now occupy cel'.d
In the city Jail. The fourth youth, who
admits having assisted in planning thd
holdup, but took no active part. Is also a
prisoner. They have confessed.
The four boys are Albert Hatctf, agei
15; William Randall, aged if; Mrry
Rheams, aged 15, and George Creawcll,
According to the story told by Randal.,
Rheams and Creswell. the holdup was
planned and carried out under the gen
eralship of Hatch,- the youngest of tho
four, who la said to have turned tne
switch, ordered the engineer to back up
and to have gone through the paBsenger
coaches with the conductor, forcing Hie
latter at the point of a gun to collect
money from .the passengers. According
to the other boys, It waa also Hatch
who shot William Dempsey and narrowly
missed shooting Conductor Jack Hayes.
Rheams elates that Hatch, after they
had left the scene of the holdup, pro
posed that they cross Sun river to the
Montana Central line and hold up pas
senger train No. 238 from Butte, which
was due in two or three hours. Btcauso
he demurred, Rheams statea. Hatch drew
his revolver and threatened to kill him.
He waa dissuaded from the second at
tempt at train robbery by the two youlha
who were with him.
The, stories told by the boys, with the
exception of Hatch, agreed In the main
details. They state that the holdup waa
planned two nights before, It being . de

Who Live Alone
There is no need of your living alone and missing: all
those little things that make up the sum of a woman's happiness and
comfort. It's all wrong for a girl to live that way. and there's no
occasion for it. Plenty of nice-people would be glad to have you live
with them folks who have real homes where you can feelas'though
you "belong'' and are "one of the family." ";: ;: ..,.;"'
