One of the most impressive ser
vices ever witnessed In this city was
the Memorial Service conducted by
the members of Roseburg Lodge, No.
326, B. P. O. E., in honor of the
memory of the departed dead.
The beautiful Elks' Temple was
filled long before the appointed hour
for the services to commence, and
when that time came standing room
was at a premium. -

The varlouB numbers were'most ex

The eulogy by Hon. Blnger Hermann,
of this city, and the address by Arch
.deacon Chambers, of Portland, were
masterful efforts, and were greatly
appreciated by the large and attentive
Fortunately . we are able to pub
lish the address delivered by Arch--deacon
Chambers, ns follows:
"That which calls us together to
day Is expressed by the words.
'Lodge of Sorrow.' The word sorrow
calls to our minds faces of those
whonf'we have known perhaps lov
ed, and lost awhile. They for a very
brief space of time passed us
sometimes in personal contacr, some
times art ah I pa pass lu the night,
speaking only as they pass by means
of signals known only to mariners on
the sea of life. These signals are often
expressed and given meaning here
by that spirit of fraternity and
brotherhood which often makes life
worth living. As the signals which
flash from one ship to another In mid-
ocean on dark nights give sustaining
hope and energy to the lonesome
man u it; r, hu uiu bi&iihib niisiitra iium
one soul to another on the sea of
life, give hope and sustaining energy
to the human soul. Without these
signals man must be a lonesome mor
tal, and often one who p?rmit8 him
self to drift as a poor useless ship
without helnrT rudder or sail, hence
the too frequent shipwreck of splen-
did humanity, no; it is this bond of
i unity between man and man which
I makes life bearable. The poor wretch
who perfers to cast his life back to
, the Giver as a suicide, does It be
: cause in his life perhaps there has
, been a lack of this sustaining human
sympathy. The maker or our being
knew our frail nature well when He
I created mankind social beings; cap
1 able of sustaining and being sustain
ed by those about him. It Is this
thought which should Inspire In our
every effort to uplift and benefit our
fellowman, thus that without our aid,
kind word and sympathy, some one
with whom we have been thrown In
personal contact might be worse oft
than they are physically, morally
and religiously. What would this
world be without that something by
which man could express a loving
care for others? I venture to say
that there would be much more mis
ery longing and want In the world
than there 1b now. Hence It be
comes evident how Impossible It is
for any soul to live however he may
try without regard to those with
whom he is thrown In contact, or to
be an Irresponsible element In the
make up of the common life of hu
manity. The greatest pity should be
extended, to anyone whose life has
settled down in a mere scramble of
the senses, and whose thought is only
how to best please self without re
gard to others who pass and repass
him In life. Such are only as ships
without sail, rudder or cargo, a dan
ger to navigation, needing to be tak
en in tow if perchance there may still j
be found enough of value to recon-1
struct. Man may try to get away i
from this fact or principle in life
which I am trying to enunciate, hut
If he succeeds ho does it to the de
struction of that which ts highest
and bent In himself. I think that the
Christ when he' Rave to the world
that beautiful parable of the Good
Samarltlan Intended to Impress this
lesson in the answer to the Pharasee
'Who Is my neighbor?' That our real
neighbor is not always him who UveB
next door, or ot our tribe or clique
or clan, but everyone In need, who Is
thrown In our way by the heaving bil-

lows of tho world's sad sea, oven If
this aid has come at the expense of
great sacrifice to self, and sacrifice
spells life. This Is tho thought that
gives value to every effort of ours
for tho betterment of our fullows.
nnd I give it to you as my first
Then Becond; our value of our fel
lows Is influenced by what wo see in
them. If as it Is often experienced in
life one sets the value. of his fellow-
man low, If our value of those whom
we meet and know best Is gunged
only by their faults, then we all 1iave
little reason for hope of Justice In
this life. We all Know of souls who
seem to have tho unhappy faculty of
plucing their worst side upward
when perhaps within, the burning de
sire of the heart Is for the best. Men
come In contact with such, nnd pass
on impressed not by the man's Inner,
better self, but by the worst, and he
Is condemned from the first. Then
again, there is thu man who Impresses
by his goodness, when in tact that
goodness does not proceed from pure
thought within, and a desire to be of
use to his fellow men, but for sell
gain. I should say that the' former
clnss IB not near as dangerous to so
ciety, on the whole, as the last. The
thought I wish to express Is contain
ed In your motto of today, 'We for
got their faults and try to emulate
Faults Indeed there are in moBt of
us from the frailty of our common
human nature,, but to forget them,
Indeed this Is true charity. To use
every elTort to bring to the forefront
the often lentent virtues of our fel
low men, is bettor and wltor than
harping criticism of. their fallings,
which had we their envlronmenU to
contend with, would bo much worse
. I value to the full extent any aid
which may, be devised to keep alive In
the human breast theBe two thoughts
I have tried to express. Benevolence,
Protection, Fraternity and Brother
hood nro all aids to onr efforts to
gain and keep alive the value of every
human soul who croBS our path In
life. One cannot Hot too high a value
upon them, and they are of value
only as we use them to this great
end. One may exercise these virtues,
and still not call himself a Christian,
but they are lminenlnently Christian
Now lastly, how does this effect
our thoughts of those whose faces
are Been no more among us, whose
walk with us for a brief period has
ended, whose form and face spring
Into remernberance as their names
aro called. They have passed Into
that great beyond from whoso borne
no earthly traveler returns (save
one). They are not forgotten, we
gather today to express In tnis L,oage
of Sorrow' our remernberance of each
one, we join tho thousands of other
Elks all over this land In these ro
monibernnces. It Is almost Holy
ground on which we tread. We Btand
often silent and appalled at tho sud
denness of a visit of the 'Grim De
stroyer' who stops not at our loved
and boBt. One and all we to await
His coming. So It Is not nlmost but
truly Holy ground on which we tread.
We remember their virtues not their
faults, we recpll how In their mom
ents of sober thought which came to
thorn Bwelllng abovo the things bring
pleasure only, how they stopd by our
side resolutely In Lodge room nnd
out for that which was truest and
best, In Justice to the down trodden,
in sympathy for the weak, in charity
for all. Always ready to extend love
and sympathy to those in need.
TheflO were a part of their virtues,
nnd they were not passing things o(
the hour, but a part of the soul of
them. They still live, nay,' more,
we huvo learned from them and aro
taken up tne flame of fire which they
bore nnd are carrying It Into the
many dark recesses of life, over many
a crnlg ot difficulty, Into the very
hearts of mon and tbtiB lnklndling
new fire until at last we too shall
final rest. Rest In the thought of
every duty performed, every .higher
calling of our being answered. When
perhaps at no far diBtant day the first
Sunday In December may find our
nnmes among those who have loft
this earthly Lodge to Join that greater
Lodge on the other sldebf the grave
may the verdict be of each of us here
today 'Ho did what ho could.' On a
battle field In the sunny South a sol
dier lay dying. Gently his comrads
laid him down, and smoothed the
pillows of rough sod, thinking that
ho nc more would wake. When sud
denly ho lifted his head nnd whisper
ed, 'Listen comrads don't you hear
It, the call of tho roll on high?' Then
straightening himself with hands at
side In attontlon. he almost shouted,
'Jesus Cuptuln hero am 1 and died.
The hour of eleven Btrlkes and we
drink a toast to the departed.. Again
It is midnight of life, the hour ot our
departure is at hand. Of no avail now
will be tho regrets of what we have
not dono or loft undone for them
In their lives. Mnko It sure while
there Is still lire left for us that which
may he written over our graves may
he written In simple honesty He
has done what he could.' "
