On Sunday last, reverentially and
patriotically, members of the Dallas
Grand Army of the Republic scattered
a profusion of spring's choicest bloom
upon mounds that mark the last rest
ing place of those departed comrades
whose valiant deeds gave aid in pre
serving the union in that awful strug
gle of a half century ago, thus by
their example rebuking that growing
spirit of indifference in the traditions
of the nation. These hoary headed
men of tottering step, through the
taste of battle, are more capable of
comprehending the real worth of pat
riotism than are those who have en
dured no greater sacrifice than annu
ally contributing to the tax collector,
and consequently the recurrence of
Memorial day to them ss one deserving
of reverential attention and the teach
ing of patriotism to the rising gen
eration. The contributions of flowers
for this most worthy cause were be
yond the most sanguine expectations
of the veterans, who received them
with expressions of gratefulness, pos
sibly appreciating the realistic fact
that ere long other loving hands would
t cilled upon to perform the sacred
aX of embellishing the graves of the
ex-J. idlers in remembrance of the he
. role part they had played in their
country's history.
Accompanied by relatives and
friends of departed ones, and a band
of children, the veterans proceeded
to the cemeteries during the morning
hours and there, in accustomed man
ner, decorated the graves of their
comrades. Commander Peter Green

of the veterans of this nation's blood

Indian fighters and Mexican war vet
erans whose bodies lie in this beauti
ful city of the dead. Of these there
are ten in number, making a total of
twenty-two graves to receive flags and
flowers, according to custom. The
cemetery presented an Improved ap
pearance on this bright Sabbath morn,
those having loved ones within its sa
cred confines having beautified their
last resting place with garlands of
flowers and with potted plants.
Sunday Afternoon Services.
The exercisefl at the armory, held in
commemoration of those who conse
crated their lives in devotion for prin
ciple, were appropriate and impres
sive. The Rev. George H. Bennett of
the Methodist church presided, and
the Rev. Tapscott, pastor of the Bap
tist church, delivered the address. The
exercises opened with "America," the
audience joining In the singing. The
High school orchestra furnished mu
sic. Miss Grant's school rendered a
pleasing patriotic song, followed by
a flag drill by the children of Miss
Savage's room, both being well re
ceived. Prior to prayer by Rev. C. C.
Curtis, the Rev. Mitchell gave a scrip
tural reading and Miss Edna Morri
son rendered a solo, as did also Miss
Georgia Curtis.
In introducing the speaker of the
day, Rev. Bennett characterized Me
morial day as the holy American sac
rament of eulogy, patriotism and
Rev. Tapseott's Address.
Rev. W. T. Tapscott, pastor of the
Dallas Baptist church, delivered the
Memorial day address, taking for his
theme "Christian Heroism," and for
his text Acta 21-13, "I am ready, not
to be bound only, but also to die. at
Jerusalem for the name of the Lord
Jesus." His, discourse in part, is here
with given:
Memorial day has become sacred In
the history of our nation. Patriotic:
citixens throughout the land unite to I
do homage to the valiant dead who
fell in the great civil war and also
to express their thanks to the sur
vivors of that great struggle for their
rsally valiant service in the pres-
sation of the union. How much we
L&e to these men it would be Impos
sible for us to declare. A million men
and billions of dollars was but part
of the cost of the war. But the sac
rifice was not in vain. Thank God, we
each other th,e same oourage, the same
patriotism, the same loyalty to con
viction that they claim for themselves.
Looking across the sea we find the
nations of Europe engaged in war sim
ilar to that which rent this country
fifty years ago. , Let us pray that the
result may be the same, that out of
this titanic struggle may come not
only a United States of Europe, but
a federation of all nations buttressed
by a league of universal peace. May
the dream of Victor Hugs be realized
when war between two nations shall
be as impossible as between London
and Liverpool, as between Boston and
Philadephia: As we have now a fed
eral government for America may we
have a federal government for the
world. As we have a Supreme court
for the United States, so may we have
an international court which shall be
the final court of appeal for all na
tions. As we meet today to do honor to
our country's heroes, I have thought
it appropriate to speak to you upon
the subject of "Heroism." Heroism of
the highest type is need In times of
peace as much as in times of war. In
our social, civil and political life,
there is abundant sphere for its exer
cise. I trust we are not lacking in our,
appreciation of the heroes. We all
recognize the difference between the
man who lives only for self and the
man who sacrifices self for the public
good or for some principal worthy of
the sacrifice. Heroism from the
Greek heros, a man) is manliness of
the highest type. The word expresses
our loftiest conception of moral grand
eur, it is the sacrifice of self for
some great principle, it Is the putting
In peril of the animal at the command
of the spiritual. It ts the calm cour-:
age which chooses to do right even In
the face of mighty odds.
The fundamental principle of all
true heroism Is faithfulness, unswerv
ing fidelity to duty. It was the fidelity
of the boy on the burning deck to the
word of his father that made the
story of Cassfbianca immortal. The
same fidelity to the world of their
commander on the part, of the Light
Brigade made the very name of Bal
aklava Immortal. Waterloo was won
by the fidelity of one brigade who
stood before the Impetuous onslaughts
of the French till every man fell,
fighting where he fell. Take the 11
lustrious example of my text: Paul is
at Caesarea in the midst of friends
who loved him. It is revealed to him
by the -prophet Agabus that when he
goes to Jerusalem he Is to be bound
and delivered to the Gentiles. Hear
ing this his friends besought him
with tears not to adventure into dan
ger. But Paul was persuaded that
God required him to go to Jerusalem
and so he was unshaken in his pur
pose both by the vision of suffering
that lay in his path and by the tears
and pleadings of his brethren. The
question of person til safety did not
weigh a feather with Paul. His only
thought was what is God's will and
knowing that he could not be deflected
from the path of duty. "I am ready"
was his prompt reply. No argument
could move him. No tears, though
they broke his heart, could break his
loyalty of purpose, grand old apostle.
How such heroism towers above the
mean and sordid lives of selfish mor
tals like Mount Blanc above the val
leys of Switzerland. The conqueror of
l.attles, the intellectual conqueror of
problems are not to be mentioned be'
side him who has conquered self, con.
quered the love of life, conquered the
fear of death and whose hand of
battle already grasps the crown of im
mortal glory.
I am here to say to you that we
too, may attain to Paul's sublimity
of spiritual stature. There Is room,
too, in our everyday life to win high
est honors in the Held of heroic ser
vice. There is such a thing as do
mestic heroism and business heroism.
the patient enduring of trials, the
maintaining of right Ideals. If you
would be a conqueror, conquer your
self, rule your own spirit, subdue
your imperious passions. Do your
honest duty day by day, dignity trade
with a spotless integrity and bring the
glory of heaven into the business of
earth. The man who bears trial with
fortitude is a hero, the man who main
tains his integrity amid severe temp
tations is a hero, the man who does
the right thing even when it is the
unpopular thing is a hero.
Finally, what makes a hero? What
made Paul so grand a hero? He
tells us in the text, '"I am ready to
die for the name of the Lord Jesus."
So, it's love that makes a hero. Love
of country makes a national hero,
but the highest type of heroism the
product of the love of the Lord Je-j
Bus. When they were probing among;
his shattered ribs for the fatal bul
let a French veteran exclaimed, "A I
little deeper and you will find the
Emperor." Vovfn deep in the heart
of the christian soldier is "the name
of the Lord Jesus." and when other
spells have lost their charm and other
names have lost their music the name
of the Lord Jesus will be an electric
dynamo in life, a peaceful quietus in
Beloved friends, I shall be gratified
if this service shall have helped you
to do life's duties more faithfully, to
bear life's burdens more patiently and
fight life's battles with greater forti
tude, and especially if the name of
the Lord Jesus shall be to you the
commanding notice It was to the
Apostle Paul.

Patriotism Instituted Into Young Idea
By Appropriate Exercises,
Friday's Memorial day program at
Dallas schools, while simple In detail,
touched the patriotic impulse of the
young and inspired a greater rever
ence for the flag than at any previous
demonstration of a similar character
ever held In the city. Both the high
and the grade schools were active in
commemoration of the nation's de
parted soldiery, the exercises i being
1 eld within the buildings on account
of rain. Grades one and two of the
primary departments postponed their
outdoor exercises until tomorrow
when the program will be followed
out, should weather permit.

classes proved Inspiring. AduetbyEcho
Ellis and Nellie Allen was received
with satisfaction. Dr. McCallon, pres
ident of the school board, offered an
Impromptu talk of a patriotic and jol
ly nature that appealed to the audi
ence. The doctor's remarks contain
ed much of dry McCallon humor,
keeping the audience in the best of
spirit, the flag coming in for its usual
share of attention. The G. A. R. post
was represented by J. A. Braden, Mr.

Does Not Faint When Ann Is Drawn
Into Live Rolls at Sawmill.
Mr, S. Ouderkirk, father of Cecil
Ouderklrk, the young man who suffer
ed the loss of an arm last week while
in the employ of the Falls City Lum
ber company, was in DallaB on Satur
day visiting his son at the hospital,
and from him The Observer learns
some additional facts concerning the
accident. Fully twenty minutes elaps
ed from the time young Ouderkirk
was caught by the live rolls until he
was extricated by fellow workmen,
during which period the victim watch
ed the operation of taking the machin
ery apart in order that he might be
released with perfect calmness, not
even experiencing the slightest degree
of faintness. When almost a death
like pallor overspread the counten
ance of one of the workers, the young
man remarked to him that from in
dications he was likely to be the first
corpse, and cautioned him against
fainting. It was grit supreme.
According to the father, had not a
workman hard by caught young Ou
derkirk and pulled with all his
strength against the rapidly revolving
rolls, the victim of the accident would,
undoubtedly have been drawn Into the
bevel gears to the shoulder, and pos
sibly lost his life. When brought to
the Dallas hospital, the arm was am
putated below the elbow, and that por
tion of the member separated has
been preserved in the office of the op
erating surgeon.
The classes In domestic science and
art of the high school are preparing
