Those Who love to believe that

likely to determine the latter life
of the individual, have a power
ful argument in the ease of Lieut.
Com. John Philip Sousa, the fam

in Washington, in 1854. Prom

until toe time he was eleven years
old, the Civil war raged, and
Washington was an armed camp.

brass bands, as we know them,

be done by united action.
Hardly , less important is the
situation existing with reference
