It is another token of a great Nation's gratitude.
It serves notice on the present generation of
young men and on generations yet to come that thev
who tight their country's battles need not fear for
the future in their old age; that the nation is not
forgetful of their deeds.
The beneficiaries of the bill enlisted at the call of
duty with 110 thought of emoluments, pay or pension.
They were patriots then; they are patriots now;
and the man who would so degrade himself in the
eyes of all true born American as to refer to them
as "undesirable citizens," is indeed himself "At for
treason, strategem and spoils."
The old soldiers do not appear before the loyal
people of the Nation as dependants.

see that the small remnant of the great armies of the
Republic will soon melt away, and if they are to re-
ceive further benefits the time should not be post
poned an hour.
As the end draws near those who have in the past
favored the pension system are enlightened and
broadened in mind, realizing that a fuller and

JUST FIFTY YEAKS AGO,
Fifty years ago this month, if history is written
ton e. tly, political events in America were moving
rapidly to civil war.
Of course few who now are the active men and
women moving rapidly forward and keeping step
with the advance guard were then on earth, but
history when written by faithful chroniclers, passes
from one generation to another always coming
down the line to those who need it and who are most
likely to utilize it.
At the November election of 18ti0 Abraham Lin-
coln, whose birthday we may soon recall, has re-
ceived 180 electoral votes, John Breckinridge, ~L',
John Bell, 29, Stephen A. Douglas, 12.
The popular vote was in striking contrast to
these figures, but Abraham Lincoln had received a
greater vote than any of the other candidates. His '
vote was greater than that of Douglas or Breckin-
ridge, or Bell, but it was not greater than their com-
The opposition combined east a few hundred
thousand more votes than Lincoln received, but Lin-
coln s vote exceeded the vote for Douglas by almost
half a million: it exceeded the Breckinridge vote
more than a million and it was larger than the Bell
vote by more than a million and two hundred

Of course, it is the English sparrow
that causes all the trouble. Not one of

that are forced to bear the name, and

it, would be guilty of such abandoned

be guilty of anything and not show the
slightest sign of contrition.
Periodically a crusade is preached
againstthe sparrow. Anathema is thun-
dered at him, and a war of extermina
