Have hair as white an snow;
Their youth lie. on the battlefield.
Of forty year. ago.

All torn by shot and shell,
Are saored emblems of the dead
Who loved their country well;
How great their love and sacrifice
No human tongue may tell.
Those serried rank, are thinning faat
That once with martial tread
The knapsack and the musket bore
Where Grant and Sherman led:
Their aleep Is sound and peaoeful
in tne bivouao ot tne aeaa.
No more the reveille at dawn
Shall rouse them from their Sleep;
No more shall wives and sister, mourn;
No more shall mother, ween:
Their names upon the roll ot fame
Time . hand nas graven oeep.
And some lie on these hard-fought fields
Where now the Blue and Gray
Clasp hands across the battle lines
Their blood haa waanea away;
Where one the tide of battle flowed.
Their children's children piay.
The passing year, apeed swiftly,
And sllenoe round them wraps;
And to their listening ear. there, comes
No sweeter song, perhaps,

And .till aha walk, in golden hour.
Through harvest-happy farms.
And .till aha wear, her frulta and flower.
Like jewel, on her arms.
What mean, the gladnes. of tha plain,
Thla Joy ot eve and mom.
The mirth that .hakes the beard of grain.
And yellow look, of corn.
Ah., eye. may well be full of tears.
And hearta w th hate are hot;
But even-apoed come round tha years,
And Nature changes not.
She meet, with .miles our bitter grief,
With ong. our groans of pain;
Bhe mocks with tint of folwer and leaf
The war-flled's crimson stain. 0
Still In the canron's pause we hear.
Her sweet thanksgiving psalm:
Too near to God for doubt or fear,
She shares the eternal calm.
She know, the seed Ilea safe below
The flrea that blast and burn;
For all the tears of blood wa sow,
She waits the rloh return.
She sees, with clearer eye than our.,
The good of suffering born
The heart, that blossom like her flowers,
And rlpn like her corn.
Oh, five to us, In times like these,
' The vision of her eyes;
And make he field, and fruited troes
Our golden prophecies.
Oh, give to u. her finer ear,
Above this stormy din
We. too, would hear the bells of cheer
Rlr.g peace and freedom tn.

The Bine and tha Gray
By the flow of the Inland river,
Whence the fleet, of Iron have fled,
Where the blade, of grave-aTaa. quiver.
Asleep are the ranks of tha dead
Under the sod and the dew,
Waiting the Judgment day;
Under tha one tha Blue.
Under the other the Gray.
These, ln the robing of glory;
Those, in the gloom of defeat;
All, with the battle-blood gory,
In the dusk of eternity meet.
Under the sod and the dew,
Waiting the Judgment day;
Under the laurel the Blue,
Under tha willow the Gray.
From tha sllenoe of sorrowful houra
The desolate mourner, go.
Lovingly laden with flower.
Alike for the friend and the foe
Under the sod and the dew,
Waiting th Judgment day;
Under th rose, the Blue,
Under the lilies tha Gray.
So, with an equal splendor.
The morning eun ray. fall
With a touch impartially tender
On the blossom blooming for ail
Under the sod and the dew.
Waiting the Judgment day;
Broldered with gold the Blue,
Mellowed with gold the Gray.
So when the summer calleth
On forest and field of grain.
With an equal murmur falleth
The cooling drip of th rain
Under the sod and the dew,
Wwitlng the judgment day;
Wet with the rain the Blue,
(Wet with th rain tha Gray.
Sadly, but not with upbraiding,
Trie generous aeea was done.
In the torm of th years that are fading
no braver name wa. won
Under the sod and the dew,
Waiting tne luagment oay;
Under the blossoms the Blue,
Under the garland, the Gray.
No more ahall th. war cry sever,
Or the winding river, be red;
They banish our anger forever
W hen tney laurel tne graves oi our aeaa
Under the sod and the dew,
Waiting the Judgment day;
Love and tears for the Blue,
Tears and love for the Gray.

I. the pulpit beginning to look askanre
at prohibition? That summary legislation
ha. caused at least a partial change of
sentiment toward prohibition a. a political
question wa. convincingly evidenced by
election results In Alabama and In many
cltie. thi. spring, but that the temperance
causa I. lo.ing favor ln Its natural strong
hold, the pulpit, Is a thing that rest, on
testimony which, while . striking and
oumulatlve, may, - after all, prove to be
only an Isolated group of coincidences.
Within the last week religious and tem
perance circle, have been agitated by the
action of a bishop and two ministers of the
Episcopal church ln pointedly declaring
their opposition to prohibition and even less
restrictive regulations. The announcement
of th Rev. W. A. Wasson of Rlverhead,
B, I., that he had resigned hi. clerical of
flca In order to devote hi. time to fighting
tha humbug temperance" wa. followed In
a day or two by an arraignment of pro
hibition and lt. tenet, delivered by the
Rev. K. A. Wasson of Newark. N. J., a
brother of the Rlverhead rector. But far
more .Igniflcant Is the equally outtoken
deliverance of Bishop Frederick Burgess at
th convention of the Long Island diocese
on 8unday opening and local option, the
two questions paramount In the mind, of
the people of New York during the last
A. to Sunday opening, Bl.hop Burgess
aid a law die. the moment It cease, to
accord 'with the convictions of a strong
minority of the people. "It is no use keep
ing It on the statute book., for all lt does
Is to become one of the richest source, of
unholy revenue to unscrupulous police and
officials." Pointing out also what he looks
on aa the defect, of local option, the bishop
said that if the efforts of prohibitionists
were directed to limiting the number of
saloon, strictly to the else of the popula
tion, and the number aa small as possible,
"It would result In untold good to the com
munity." Bishop Burgess' bold utterance excited
much comment among the clergy and laity
In attendance, but it did not have the
bombshell effect lt might have produced
upon similar gathering, in some part, of
th country. The published report of the
proceeding, states that while the bishop',
advanoed position wa. dwelt upon, the
absence ot dissent was conspicuous. Local
i.ed as this outburst of antl-prohlbltlon
feeling appears to be, tha attitude of the
Long Island diocese is bound to challenge
th attention, and views of churchmen far
beyond its confines, and thus serve to
illustrate th trend of pulpit thought.
It. Purpose Appeals to Every
Memorial day has its deep personal mean
ing- for every one whose house death has
entered. It 1. a day of beautiful services,
of tender thoughts, of the purest affections,
of sorrow softened by devout thankfulness
for the association, of the past and by the
moat ln.plrlng hope, for the future.
Tha day need not be given over to mourn
Ing, but it la shockingly out of keeping with
its solemn and devout character to dese
crate it with noisy and perhaps sordid
sporting events. It Is not a day for wrest
ling bouts, or bicycle race., or Joy riding,
or riotous "good time." It is a day for
rs.t and quiet, for reflection, for religious
sentiment, for a decent regard for the feel
ing, of other., and every grossly incon
gruous amusement Is a profanation.
And it 1. to be hoped that as the .acred
memorial custom live, on we may be able
to eliminate from Memorial day all that
Offend, against Its purpose, violate. Its
sanotlty and tend, to make of lt a com
mon day off.

Talks for people
Anybody can sell goods without
profit. It takes neither a real sales
man nor good advertising to do that
The good salesman Is the man who
can make a showing on the right side
of the ledger, and good advertising
sells goods, because they are worth the
moner, not because of cut prices.
Often cut prices are cut-throat
prices. One fool merchant can jump
ln at the wrong time and, without
making a cent for himself, spoil the
leglttmste trade of every other store.
For example, lt happens usually that
some of the Omaha hat stores get ex
cited early ln July and sells out straw
bats at cost. Straw hats should sell
until August 1st at a profit.
The public recognizes that every
store has a right to a profit; they
could not stay In business otherwise.
What is the use cf a merchant cutting
prices on seasonable goods before the
selling season is well toward the end,
when the right sort of advertising
would sell the goods at a profit over
and above tha cost of the advertising.
Most bat advertising copy Is juat a
poor picture and a price not a word
about . the gooda. The merchant,
when be bought the stock, bad some
good reaaona for bla selections. Why
not tell the buyers those reasons?, The
drummer who sold the bata bad a
good talk about bla goods. Why not
use this aa advertising copy? Tell
how the manufacturer you bought
from goes to all the trouble he takes
