It is claimed that the Adepts or Mahatdm'as have, for ages pvirsued scientific experimentation as to man's past and future. Seers themselves of the highest order, they have recorded not only their own actual experiences beyond the yell of matter on ooth sides, but have collected, compared, analyzed, and preserved the records of experiences of the same sort by hundreds of thousands of lesser seera, their own disciples; and this process has been going on from time immemorial. Let Science laugh as.it may, the Adepts are the only true seieritests, as they take into account eve'y factor in the question, whereas Science is limited by brain power, by curcnm- Btanoes. by imperfection v of instruments, and by a total-inability to perceive anything deeper than the mere phenomena presented by matter. The records of the visions and experiences of the greater and lesser seers, through the ages are preserved and extant to-day. Of their mass, nothing has been accepted except that which has been checked and verified by millions of independent observations; and therefore the Adepts stand in the position of thoso who possess actual experimental knowledge of what preceded the birth of the Ego in a human form, and what succeeds when the "mortal coil" is cast away. This recording of experiences still goes on; for the infinity of the changes of Nature in its evolutionary motion permits of no stoppage, no last word," no final declaration. As theeartli sweeps around the.sun, it not only passes through new places in its orbit, but dragged as it is by the sun through its greater orbit, involving millions of years, it must, in that larger circle, enter upon new fields in space and unprecedented conditions. Hence the Adepts go further yet and state that, as the phenomena presented by matter to-day are different from those presented a million years ago, so matters "will, in another million ot years, show different phenomena still. Indeed, if we could translate our sfght to that time, far back in the past of our globe, we could see conditions and phenomena of the material •world so different from those now surrounding us that it would be almost impossible to believe we had ever been in such a state as that then prevailing. And the changes toward the conditions that will prevail at a point equally remote in advance of us, in time, in which will not be less than those that have occurred, are in progress now. Nothing in. the material world endures absolutely unchanged in itself or its conditions, even for the smallest conceivable portion of time. All that is, is forever in process of becoming something else. This is not mere transcendentalism, but is an old established doctrine, called in the East, tbe doctrine of the constant eternal change of atoms from one state into another. This doctrine of the constant eternal change of every atom, from state to state, is founded upon, or rather grows out of. another which postulates that there is no such thing as dead matter, At every conceivable point iu the universe there are-lives; nowhere can be found a spot that is dead; and each life is forever constantly hastening onward to a higher evolution. To admit this, we must of course grant that mSt- ter is never perceived by the eye or through any instrument. It is but the phenomena of; matter that we recognize with the senses, and hence, say the sages, the thing denominated "matter" by us is an illusion. Even the protoplasm of the schools is not the original matter, it is simply another of the phenomena. This first, or original matter is called by the Paracelus and others, primordal matter, the nearest approach to which, in the Eastern'school is fonnd in the Sanscrit word "mulaprakriti." This is the root of matter, invisible, not to be -weighed or measured, or tested with any instrument or method of human invention. And yet it is the only real matter underlying all the.phenoinena to which we errniously give its name. But even it is not dead, but is full of tho lives first referred to. Now bearing this in mind we consider the vast solar system, yet vast only when not compared with th» still greater aggregations of stars and planets around it. The great sidereal year covered by the sun in going through the twelve signs of the /.odiac, includes about 25,000 mortal years of 365 days each. While this immeaso circuit is being traversed, the BUD drags the, whole sys- torn with him around his own tre- hiendous orbit, and wo may imagine —for there arc no known observations on that point—that, -while the 36,000 years of travel around the zodiac have been passing, the solar system, as a whole, has advanced along the sun's own orbit only alittlo distance. But after millions of years shall have been consumed in these progresses, the sun must bring his train of planets to stellar space where they have never been before; here other conditions and combinations of matter may very well obtain —conditions and states of which our scientists have never heard; of which there never has been recorded one single phenomena; and the differ ence between planetary conditions then and now will be so great that no resemblance shall be observed. This is a branch of cyclic law with which the Eastern sages are perfectly familiar. They have inquired into it, recorded their observation?, and preserved them. Having watched the unaccountable lives during cycles, upon cycles past, and seen their behavior under different conditions in other stellar spaces long ago left behind, they have some basis upon which to draw conclusions as to what will be the condition of things in ages to come.

R. held a special memorial services at the hall in honor of tho comrades who have died during the past year. These were Stanley Mallott, died May 25 1889; Jas. M. Justice, jr. died August 1!) 1889; Jno Miller .died September 6 1889; W. C. Angus died November 21 1889; Robert J. Connelly died December 20 1889; Jasper A. Paugh died February 23 1890 John G. Kisler died May 4 1890. The ceremonies were sad and impressive. The rapid passing away of those who fought in the war of the rebellion leave vacancies that cannot be filed. Each year shows an increased ratio of deaths and soon but few will be left to answer to the roll call. The address by Rer. D. P. Putnam is given below. Commander, Comrads of the G. A. B., and Friends: This service is something of a new departure, at leant tome and so far as I kndw to this Post, though it is a part of the ritual of our order. It is designed to be a memorial service for those of our comrads of the Grand Army of the Republic who h» ve died during the past year. It is to be observed uioro especially by the soldiers who survive and by"the immediate family friends of the departed dead. It is unlike our Decoration Day services so soon, to come. That is a day in which our whole nation, all of our citizens take it upon themselves to pay their tribute ol respect to the memorv of those who fell upon tbe bloody field of battle, (5r who died in cauip, in prison, in hospitable or in the quiet surroundings of home life at auy time since. Decoration Day is one in which the people of the whole nation bring their flowers and their tribute of love and grateful appreciation to the graves of our fallen comrads, and tell of their deeds of valor while they seek to stir the patriotic heart of the nation and especially of the young to love of country and to like deed* of valor. This service to-day however if I understand its purpose and design is for the inner circle (if I may so speak) of our Nation's Patriots, at least it is for those whose sorrow and bereavement is more direct and personal. Tlie old comrads come together at the end of a yea>- to note how many and who have dropped from, our ranks during the year, to tell of our love for them, to close up ourranks, to comfort eachotner and those who are personally bereaved, while we take to heart the lesson of our own mortality and see how we ought to live during the few remaining years of our moral soldiering in this worlds You have heard from our Adjutant the names, and the records of those comrads of The Post who hare recently depaited this life, at the time of their death we laid a rose, a bunch of fiowers and a sprig of evergreen upon their casket as symbols of our love for tuem and our respect for their loyality. These seven vacant chairs here before me, each marked with the emblem of mourning remind us that their places here will be occupied no more. Others there have been in the community who have died during the year who were not members of the Post, yet when danger threatened the nation they were with us on tbe field of action. I saw an estimate sometime ago that of the .million and a half men who composed the armies of the Union during the war, ten thousand of them die every year. This is more than thirty every day one every hour, and of course during the next five or ten' years this death rate will be very largely increased Somewhere on the face of the earth, 'every hour of everv day in th'e year, one of these grizzled old veterans receives his final discharge; never again to be reported for duty in this world, or sick in hospital. The fireat commander of us all, one by one, is ordering .our discharge sending us forward to the long, long home! I can never tell how the following words of the soldier poet, Theodore O'Hara. affected me the first time I ever read.them as I did in cast iron letters on iron plates, placed here and there in one of our national cemeteries in the South. O'Hara was a soldier in the Mexican war and his words of ten verses wero written to celebrate the valor of our soldiers iu the Mesican war. The muffled drums mid roll hits beat T n e soldiers' lastiattoo; No rnote on life's parade shall meet The brave and ful en few: On fames eternal camping ground Their silent tents are spread And glory guards wltn solemn round Tliu bivouac ot the dead. Tbe neighing troop, the flashing blade, The bugles stirring blast, : The eh'irge, the dreadful cannonade, The dlu and shout are pa.-.t. Nor war's wild note., nor glory's peal -hall thrill with neree delight Those breasts that never maj feel The rapture of the light. Beaton embal-ned and sainted dead. Dear as Ue bloou ye gave! No Impious footsteps ue-re shall tread The herbage of your grave. Nor shall jour glory be lorgut ' While fame her record keeps. Nor Honor points the hallowed spot Where valor proudly sleeps. What a flood of memories comes trooping through our minds at such a service as this. The sombre shadows of this occasion forbid the levity ia which sometimes indulge around our camp fires or at the festal board. The freshness of grief on some hearts here reminds u« that our words should be tender and sympathetic, while the lengthening shadows on our own pathway tell us to be thoughtful and serious in all we do and say here to-dav. As I reflect two griefs, two heart trials seem to me very vivid and very strong. One grief is here presented in the hearts of those whose protectors and companions have ao recently been taken from them. To •uoh I can only (ay look up. even though it be through tears, look up with Faith and Hope. The God of all comfort has promised to ba a father to the fatherless and a support to the widow. The other trial of which ] think is further away in time. It was a living sorrow. It was oft repeated. Let me illustrate. In the summer of 1802 there were two lads in their teens, sons in the home of a most godly praying man and his wife, in one of our middle states, older sons had gone out. to make hornet for themselves. The two were tbe sons of riper years and wore expected to become the comfort of declining days. The year '02 you -will remember has beeu called the second phase* of the war. The name of Grant was just beginning to be heard of in the west. The year before thore had been numerous battles as they were then called, but these mere skirmishes as compared with what caiue afterward and were without any unity of plan. Slavery had not jet been touched, and no one, or but very few seemed to realize aa yet that it must be doomed before victory could perch upon our national banners. In the opening months of '02 we began to realize what tremendous work was before us and in the summer of this year the nation commenced girding herself in earnest for the mighty conflict yet to come. First there came a call, from the President, on the lirst day of July for OOO.OUO volunteers, and in a month's time wan followed up by a draft for 300,000 more. The call for volunteers took the eldest of the two sons in tho home of which I havo spoken. It seems little to be one of 600,000, when we think of them only as numerals, all alike, so many to make up the count; that every one of these 600,000 was a son, a husband, a father, or a brother torn out oia happy home and from the embraces ot loved ones to go hence perhaps to return no more—to go hence to be shot at—then it seems like something more than a count! But this son wauled to go and the godly pray ing; father and mother sent him—sent hiui with their blessing for had they not yet their younger bom left to them? But a month later came thejdraft and this took the younger son also! Being absent from home at the time, he returned iu response to a telegram after having first enlisted for three years in place of responding to the draft which was for nine months. Coming to the old home in the country on a beautiful o°tober morning, with the haze and beauty of a perfect Indian summer day ha.nging over the landscape, no scene could be more peaceful and far removed from war's distressing scenes than this quiet rural home! The lad reached the old house just as the family in the quiet of their peace and pleuty, were about to sit down to their morning meal, after which as the father explained he was going to tbe villiajje to secure a substitute the money tor which he had in readiness. In response to this, tbe lad with no little pride announced that he was already a soldier, and showed his enlistment paper, his leave of absence and his order to return to LIB regiment io. so many days. The stern, strong father, stood in silent submissive astonishment. A moment later the family gathered about the table in silence" and the father bowed his good gray head to return thanks and askthe Heavenly Father's blessing upon their daily bread! Instead of the words of thanks, a flood of tears came and a great sob of grief and the strong man rose without a word and weeping withdrew himself to his closet .that ho might be alone witn God. At once the little mother opposite with no less of a burden on her loving heart and no less of grief, spoke a word of calmness to those remaining and somehow a brief blessing was asked. Oan we measure such sorrow and trial as this? And this was only one of hnndreds of thousands of like homes. These lads in the stir and activity of army life had not half so much of a heart-burden to endure as the loved ones at home who in the quiet terror of their dread could only endure and pray. The Spartan Mothers in ancient times are said to have sent forth their sons to battle with the bidding not to return without victory unless carried upon their shields. The Mothers of America were all Spartan and more than Spartan for this they sent forth their sons not in blind, stolid devotion to their country, but in sublime faith in the God of their country, to whose watchful care they committed them, these mothers sent forth their sons bidding Him to bring them back again is safety if possible, but if needful to offer them in service to save the country, they were ready for the sacrifice.. I sometimes think that the mothers of our nation f»ught harder battles and gained a sublimer victory than our generals and soldiers and some of these mothers are fighting the battle of their sorrow yet. When we grieve for our comrads •who are gone it is a comfort to re- fleet that they gave the service of their lives to a most worthy and noble cause. This nation can never repay the debt of gratitude it owes to our citizen-soldiers. '"Tis sweet to die for one's country"is an old saying which has more of poetic philosophy in it than hard sense and reason. But we may well say that it is sweet and blessed to have a country that is worth dying for, and may God make our natiou in all her future worthy of the noble army ot martyrs who have laid down their lives for her sake, and' worthy also of that other no less worthy arujy of martyrs who at the rate of more than ten thousand every year, are coming down to the grave with enfeebled steps and with constitution shattered by what they have done for their .country. Whenever we lay away one of oar ecomraiis I love to repeat the poets dirge for a soldier. Close his eyes; his work Is done! • What to hlinls f i lend or foreman. Itlse of moon or set of son, Hand »t man or kiss ot woman? Lay him low, Lay hlnj low, In the clover ur the snow, What cares he? He cannot know, Lay him low. Fold him lii his country 1 ' stars.

He cannot know I-ay him low. in closing I must give you »a incident of the experience of Post Commander Jap Paugh who has left us during the past year. I would lovo to speak of each one of the seven comrads who have so recently departed, but time forbids Coiurad Paugh told ine once of seeing, while iu hospital, the death of the soldier which made BO deep a religious impression upon him that he was never able to throw off the convictions received. In a cot a. few feet away from him was a strange soldier who slowly came down to death, frequently talking of it, asking the Christian women who visited the -ward to talk and pray with him. All this wan done without cant or pretense and with evident comfort to the man. Finally at the early dawning of the morn the soldier asked to be propped up on the cot, then. joined in the religious eouversation and the prayers. Then lie asked them to sing the old familiar hymn. "Jesus lover of my soul. Let me to thy bosom fly." When this' was finished he quietly asked to be laid back upon his pillow and then wag gone. Coiurad e Paugh is describing this scene told me that previously he had been skeptical and had doubted im- motality, but since then he had nover had a doubt as to his own immortality or as to the truth of Christianity. Comrads. let us realize that we are all immortal, and let us live such lives, by the mercy and grace of God, that we shall be willing their lives should be immortal. Will You~Guess?
