Just as the family lot in the cemetery gathers names
to its circle, and the record of births and deaths and wed
dings lengthen, little by little in the family bible, so, as
the years roll round Memorial Day gathers to itself new
reasons for being.
We decorate this year the graves of the soldiers of
four great wars the Revolution, the Civil war, the
Spanish war and this last great conflict, which took no
notice of boundaries or oceans, but spread throughout
We cannot choose our heroes. All fought for the
same great principles, and died for the same ideals. Each
has made his supreme contribution to the good of his
fellow men, and all deserve alike our flowers and our
It is a day in which the living give in loving memory
of the dead. But the living receive far more than any tri
bute they can pay, for what lessons in history and pat
riotism are here !
Who, whether or not he goes to the cemetery or at-,
tends anv public ceremony, can fail to feel the tides of a
deep love for his countiy rise within him if he gives even
a passing thought to the day
Our flowers and our; thoughts will be of little worth,
our dead indeed will have died in vain, if this Memorial
Day does not make better, braver citizens and patriots 'of
WHAT GERMANY WILL DO.
It can be set down as a practical certainty that Ger
many will sign the treaty. There is nothing else left
for her to do. Refusal to sign would mean the immed
iate occupation of Germany by the Allies, the garrisoning
of the whole country, the seizure and control of the cus-

evidence that the German nation has any such concep
tion. It considers itself wronged, and will continue in
the future, as in the past, trying to evade all responsibil
ity for the war's consequences, regardless of signed documents.
It follows that the Allies will be compelled to use
force in order to make the terms of the treaty operative.
Their task will be somewhat simpler than it would have
been if Germany had not signed, because there will be a
definite program to carry out, written down in black and
white and having the international sanction that a com
pleted treaty naturally carries. But it will be hard
enough at best.
Germany may be expected to resist every penalty im
posed, actively or passively, perhaps for the most part
passively. There will be none of the prompt settlement by
the French after the Franco-Prussian war, in order to
get done with a disagreeable situation as soon as pos
sible. The Allies will probably have Germany on their
hands, unrepensive and sullen, for many years to come.
As legislator, editor, farmer and grange leader,
James S. Stewart, who is now campaigning in Marion
county in behalf of the market road bill, has always been
true to truth and fact. His addresses in advocacy of the
bill and the Marion county local bond issue should carry
great weight for both measures, says the Oregon Journal. m r the flower, you've, gathered

Who answered to our country ' cull.

And marched to wnr in (18) sixty one.
Anions the ref this one appears
For men who fought for five long years
Another one for those alive
Who returned home in (IS) sixty five.
These flowers here commemorate
Our Spanish war of (IS) ninety eight.

For olive drab boyg laid in France.

At some head rest or little mound,
For you will find it worth the while
To make some living veteran smile.

It won't be a great many years until Salem
business and banking will be conducted by the
boys who are now growing up. When that
time comes the preparation which they have
had now will better enable them to carry on
where we leave off.
