Judge Bennett began by quoting General Dawson as saying that old soldiers were all frauds, for the boys he fought with were young, athletic .able-bodied men, while these men were old and decrepit. They could not be the same. The speaker referred to the memories recalled during the last year and said that the late war the ledges have been opened up on the President Martin Addresses the High School Graduates. The otherwise complete report of the work of the public schools for the year and the exercises of the High school graduates was marred by the omission of the excellent address of President Martin, who Between COO ami 600 old soldiers answered the bugle rail "Fall Id" at Hot ground adjoining the British-American cn the south, almost at the boundary line Spring! last week.

He had some Interest In the flag, he said, and he, too, had found no bitterness among soldiers. He, 'too, spoke of the nation united In a common cause. As long as they could sing "Dixie" and "Yankee Doodle" the flag would never come down.
