NATIONAL CEMETERY AT ARLING-
TON SCENE OF IMPRESSIVE
ALL BUSINESS LAID ASIDE
President Taft Stands With Bared
Head as New York Veterans
Pass By—Citizens Take
Soldiers in Autos.
NVw York, N. Y.—Reforo the pres!-'
dent of the United Stutes there passed
In review today what remains of New
York's contribution to the war of the
north utul south.
Mr. Taft had come from Washing-
ton especially to see the old soldiers
pass the reviewing stand at the sol-
diers and tailors monument on River-
side Drive, and as they trudged by
they were still fit and active. But the
blue lines wavered, old feet shuffled
over the roadway, and some of the
men who marched behind the ragged
flags, riddled with shot, spent quickly
the strength they had and kept their
places only with the help of their stal-
Took Three Hours to Pass.
1 he parade was nearly three hours
in passing, but the president all the
while stood bareheaded in the stand,
bowing as the veterans trooped by.
After the parade there was a short
exercise at the base of the monument.
It was cut short by a shower which
met the president before one of the
secret service men rushed to his res-
cue with an umbrella. The president
made no address.
Feared Anarchist Bomb.
This morning at Riverside Drive
and Kighty-third street, a young man
from the crowd broke through the line
of police and ran toward the presi-
dent’s motor car. A secret service
man and a policeman caught him but
he said he was merely trying to get
across to the other side of the street
and was released.
Women Have Humanity Show.
A feature of the Memorial day cele-
bration in New York City was the
work horse parade in Fifth avenue.
Two thousand dollars in cash and
many medals and blue ribbons were
presented from the reviewing stand
by .Mrs. Russell Sage ana Mrs. James
Spyer, the latter president of the wo-
man’s auxiliary of the American so-
ciety for the prevention of cruelty to
Two tablets of historic interest were

speech he delivered at the twelfth an

"It is an encouraging sign of the
times that Americans are taking a
much grenter interest In what Is go-
ing on In China than they did a little
while ago. The free interchange of
views on questions of public Interest

countries. On the other hand, we nlso
wish to know nioro about other coun-
tries. Our officials nnd merchants are
beginning to travel more and more to
foreign lands in search of information
and opportunities. This thirst for for-
eign ideas is having Its'effect upon
the whole country. China is now
passing through a great crisis in her
history. The old order of things is
fast giving place to the new. What
wo need most now Is men—men able
to do the work that has to lie done.
“Though we have established
schools nnd colleges In all purts of

be some decades yet before we can
hope to have such schools ami col-
leges as you have in this country.
Still, we have made a beginning, in
the meantime we intend to send a
steady stream of students to your
country. T hanks to the generosity of
the American government, in remit-
ting a portion of the Boxer indemnity,
China Is able now to send 100 students
to this country each year for the first
four years and 50 thereafter. There
will soon be 40 government students
in this country. These students on
their return to their own country can-
not but give a good account ol' them-

will do their part in guiding the af-

progress and reform and in binding

Veteran Member of Congregation Was
Tired of Part He Had Been
Representative Harry Maynard of
Virginia tells the story of bow a re-
ligious old negro in his district put a
"top to the exercise of Christian char-
ity in the congregation of which ho
wns a member. It seems that it was
a practise in the church to excom-
inunicate for one year any member
who had been guilty of u ’ blood fight"
—that Is, any man who had attacked
another with a pistol or a razor.
At th«‘ end of the year, if the of-
fender wished reinstatement, he could
go to the "mourners’ bench,” rise and
declare his repentance, and be forgiven
by the congregation. This went on
for many years. At last a young
darky who hud been in a particularly
objectionable broil appeared for rein-
statement. The pastor made an elo-
quent appeal to the congregation and
everybody began to shout and say
It wus at tills point that the old

San Francisco, Cal.—With the boom-
ing of minute guns at the National
cemetery in the Presidio, San Fran-
cisco did honor today to its soldier
dead, while a mass of flowers carried
through the Golden Gate on the ebo

who have gone down on the ships.

Here Is a story about a diplomatic
negro waiter; also about two well-
known Kansas men, who can go by
the names of Smith and Jones, just to
tell the yarn.
Smith and Jones look much alike
and are frequently taken for each
other. One day Smith was in a cer-
tain big hotel not a thousand miles
from Kansas City and went- into the
dining room for dinner. The negro
waiter busily brushed off the crumbs
and said: "Why, how is you, Mr.
Jones, how is you? Ps glad to see you.
I hasn’t seen you since I waited on
your table when you all used to have
a little game upstaihs.”
"I’m fraid you are mistaken," said
Smith, very quickly. "My name isn’t
Jones. You have the*wrong man.”
“Nuff said; nuff said,” smiled the ne-
gro, with much bowing and scraping.
"Ah knows all right when to keep
mah mouf shet; Ah knows all right,
Mr. Jones.”—Kansas City Journal.

Cross, Church St.,
says: "For weeks
I was bent double
by pain in my back
and the kidney se-

ankles were badly swollen and I had
headaches and dizzy spells. Six doc-
tors treated me without relief and I
finally began taking Doan’s Kidney
Pills. They cured me.”

Her Laugh Broke.
She was a little fairy of seven, with
eyes like diamonds and hair like spun
gold, and she was romping with a half
dozen playmates. Touching a fine-
looking youngster on the shoulder,
she challenged him with, “You can’t
catch me.” Off they started, she twist-
ing and dodging with the dexterity of
a half-back on a football team, and he
following her every movement in close
pursuit. The excitement of the chase
made her scream with laughter. The
little fugitive finally brough up
against a fence, breathless and pant-
ing, and her pursuer, throwing his
arms about her, shouted: "There, I’ve
caught you!” “Oh, yes,” gasped the
little fairy, "but it was ’cause my
laugh broke and I couldn’t run any
Spreading the News.
Postmaster Fuller of Rockland, Me.,
was the sparkling wit at the postmas-
ters' dinner. He announced with mock
solemnity that he had just received
word from his congressman that his
name had been sent In somewhere in
Washington for reappointment in
recognition of his efficient service and
the votes he could swing.
"I have dashed the momentous news
of my triumph to distant Rockland to
my wife, and if I am acquainted with
the lady, as I believe that I am, the
glad tidings have ere now penetrated
to the most remote section of that
district,” was a sally that brought
