An Optimistic Prophet, mental callbro IH not. tial to HOC the right; It IB not, oit.hor demanded by truth that mind be great to do right. It however eallH for courage to do right. All of which In HO plain as to be platitudinous. But greatness eornes to tho man through fidherenre to the right, wnether this KreatnesH he over reoognl/od 01 not.. F6lt of MlHHOiirl IH not yet a great man. He merely has Hhown Hignrf of greatness. He IIHH had courage to do right. In the past; It is possible that he will be given opportunity to perform great, things In the Interests of right In the future. The United States has need of, and in iiHing siu:h men as Kollc of Missouri. His splendidly optimistic address before a C'ovlna audience last week, dealing with the awakening of the American conscience, uncovered one fact above all others—that Folk IB one of the leaders in the new era of American Introspection of which he speaks; he is color-hearer against a national evil which would make steadily for complete ruin, were it not a fact as he says, that the American people are pausing to think. Folk Is a man who has won decisive battles against civic corruption, and because of this, his words ring true. His words of optimism clang out like the echoes of his own sword upon the armor of an adversary. Coming from a man who has fought and won in the arena against powerful corrupt influenccK In his own state, the high note of promise of better things warms the heart. Folk Is a Democrat, am! because of It, will climb slowly politically, but above nil things, he Is an American, with tho mission of the American strong upon him. Whether he will stand high In the eyea of his party at the next national Democratic convention; whether his name goes ahead of Tom Johnson or falls behind as nominee for the presidency for that party, has little to do with his ultimate success as a groat American, providing Folk continues to carry the banner In the vanguard of this awakening, thla grout national awakening, of which lie speaks. That ho was greeted In Covina by ncpiiblk'iti) and Democrat alike In a manner showing the high respect In which lie is held, IH not hi the least surprising. (!ov. Folk's v. ork Is confined to (lie tmrnnvnonH of no political creed. "The greatness of u nut Ion does not lie in more extent of territory, nor In i(H battlecihlpH, hut in the purity of Its ideals." In thin utterance, Folk IIHK removed himself from any label of party and ulandH wholly American, facing his duty lo IIJH country; preaching a doctrine of optimism while on- gaged in unearthing evils which make small men of honesty pessimistic. California will support Folk In hiw work, for California believes that better tilings are to come. THE DWINDLING ARMY.

(A Memorial Ytay Poem) Once, when the day's were dark, when in the land The war-brand lit to bale a nation's eyes; When She of Amity, with outstretched hand, Unheeded stood, and saw strange banners rise; Out of a riven brotherhood there rose They of the wrath that waits—slow-kindled flrea That breathe of battle, and know all men foes, Who seek to rend the .symbol of their sires. Flag of their fathers they of men who dared To raise Its virgin folds in freedom's cause; Flag that is floating where all head-M nre bared— JOmblem of Peace, standard of righteous wars! These are the Inst, t.l.eso brr.ved find broken ones, Who mark their way with slow funereal ptrains, flaring for naught of how the battle runs, Save that they meet to know who yet remains. Year that succeeds to year hath lended them The halo that illumines a hero-deed; Time hath riot stlll'd the solemn requiem For men whose country served them an n creed. Only n few, O, General of Souls, The rear-guard of an army tramping on, Waiting the hour when latest dark unrolls, To hall the Great Alignment, and the dawn! HENRY L. MARSHALL. Don't Pass a Good Thing By great, silent arrny is in bivouac, the brief roll call of the living and the long reading of the names of the dead, makes Por a greater, more solemn impression even, than the fuller ranks of other Memorial days, arid the tears start from the eyes of manhood at this enactment of the last scene in America's most dramatic episode. Let us be sure to honor them tomorrow sit the services to lie field in the churches throughout tho land, iitid on Monday, when they visit the "silent tents of green." let us attend and assist them as we can by the sympathy of our presence. For, within a short, time, taps will sound on earth for the last Civil war soldier, and the nrmy's roll call will be complete at reviile on the other side. BRETHREN.

On Wednesday evening, at the Baptist Church, Dr. Moseley, who has for ten years been superintendent of the Baptist, missions in Cuba, gave a most interesting account of the wonderful evangelical work going on among the Cuban people since the expulsion of the Spaniards from that country. As a proof of the rendineus of the people , to listen to and receive the gospel, ! there has already been established '• forty-two Baptist churches, with a ! goodly membership, overflowing congregations, and 3000 Sunday-school scholars In Eastern Cuba alone. Dr. Moseley, who before going to Cuba had spent twenty years as a missionary in Mexico, speaks Spanish like a native, and is thus eminently fitted for the position he holds in Cuba. In a conversation with the Argus scribe, Dr. Moseley gave an account of the deplorable state of affairs in the so-called republic to the south of us, and predicts a great uprising of the Liberals upon the death of Diaz.
