"Your presence here today telis of the honor aad admiration end love in which you held him whose noble form Uea In tho stillness of death, but whose spirit bss retaraed to God who gave it. This la neither the time nor the place to review the life work and the achievements of Charles A. Boutelle. What that work hse been, what influence be ben had span the life of your city. Btate and Batten, you who have known idm through se many years well know. "What he did for the upbuilding of ihe nation arod the perpetuating of its Institutions and ideal saay well be made the eekgfect of some future occasion. But today It is the man, and not 5erely his week that Invites your Attention. la the silence of death what A man has deee may soon be forgotten ; but what a meals Is that which radiates to eternity. The world pat net away its heaers fade, it garlands of victory wither, but ha that doeth the will of God abide th forever. It is character that afvee a man Immortality with God and keeps hi memory green la the hearts at men. "The man who stands for these moral forces In aatienal life confers greater blessings upes e republic than all the captains of Industry and the creators of commero e; for be stands for tLe principle open which alone a material civilization ms survive. Mr. Boutelle bn won the recognition and honor of bis countrymen by his distinguished rv4 exceptional qualities as a citizen and patriot. It is not alone a city that be loved, nr even the State that he served, that mourns bis loss today, but a nation knows that she has lost In him one who stood In the front rank of her pure and devoted men in the public service. Such service Is not bo common among us asto pass away without honor and appreciation. In political life he stood for all that was best and noblest In public life within our city aad State. In national life he stood without a peer In the purity of bis character and the honesty of bis motives. His. was a personality thet impressed men. Frank, generous, open-hearted, courageous even to a fault, he made Warm friends and sometimes bitter foes. He was a positive force lu civic life, and bis presence graced the halls of rongrecs and the counci's of Plate. He was e political leader who, though Jcyal to his party, yet ever worked for the highest Inter In LABRADOR or WHITE MOUNTAIN REFRIGERATOR. r The walls are (hick and so constructed that the cold cannot get out or the heat get in. , V - , The constant circulation of very cold, I n,ffirn,r dry air inside reaches all corners of the inter-LU ivU uL) I tor Hid keeps the food in proper condition for longtime, 17023 a Ci:i:0P CO., - 40-42 Crcad St. ests of the State and nation. While bis policy at times was audacious, he commanded men by the fearlessness of bis spirit and bis fidelity to his principles. No one ever doubted the sincerity of bis purpose or the purity of his alms. He was a man who knew no question of compromise when dealing with questions of right and duty. He was never a politician merely In resorting to the policy of expediency. He did not shade his thought nor trim bis sails to catch tbe wind of popular favor; but he ever stood for what he believed was right Sometimes his Inflexibility to principle carried him to the point of rashness, but it was rashness inspired by his sense of truth. "He stood in political life as tbe embodiment of great principles. In the eyes of some, his principles might be open to debate; they might be rejected in scorn and ridicule, and yet those who differed from him moot widely and were his political opponents never questioned the honesty of his purposes or the sincerity of his motives. And through a long congressional career, covering It years, in which he was disciplined and trained to the highest public service, men recognised that he stood for purity in public life and honesty in private llfa "Mr. Boutelle was the incarnation of the New England conscience la public Ufa He kept alive In the halls of our State and national life the spirit and principle of the fathers. He reasserted with Intense earnestness the conscience of the nation in the affairs of State. But next to hla purity in public life we must place his fearlessness and moral courage. His courage was not simply that which manifests itself on the battlefield under tbe excitement of action or Is felt from the enthusiasm of conflict and storm on tbe sea- Of an emotional temperament, sensitive to every wave of popular feeling, his fervency and large human sympathy did not destroy the Judicial calmness of his mind. In the last few years, when the nation was in danger of drifting away from lte ancient moorings and being carried forward under the. blind passion of war Into unknown dangers, his was the one voice In the House of Rep resentatlves that was raised la protest his the one spirit that counselled delay. And almost alone he stood for what he believed was right, sacrificing his deserved popularity In th State and nation to hie vision of principle and duty. In my judgment that action was the flowering of his character. He never stood so well in the eyes of men as when he stood alone for the right However, men may have questioned hia judgment,- they dared not doubt his moral courage and his fine fearlessness under the cruel and scathing criticisms of an Impassioned public opinion. "Who Is It will not dare himself to trott? Who is it hath not; strength to stand , alone? Who is It thwarts and bilks the in ward MUST? He and his works. Ilka sand, from earth are blown." Men of a thousand shifts and wiles look here! See our straightforward conscience put In pawn To win a world; see the obedient sphere By braverys rlmple gravitation drawn "But any allusion to the character of this man would be Inedaquate that failed to make mention of hla sterling honesty. In this respect. I believe, he stands without a peer among his colleagues In national life. It is to his highest credit and undying honor that In a time In our republic when money counts for much, he went Into public service comparatively a poor man and he came out of that service as poor es when he went in. After 18 years of services in which he held the most respoBlble and honorary positions In the gift of the House, under temptations vblch few men In public life are called upoo to meet, with opportunities of acquiring wealth which many men have seized, he seized, be turned the tempter aside. For he prized his character as of greater wealth than all the gold of California or the silver of Nevada. 1 know it will be said that he did exactly what his constituent expected him to do; yet we cannot but honor the man today who faced the temptations of our modern political life and passed by the siren voices of gain and greed with his character untarnished and bis soul unsullied. T might. If time permitted, speak of his large and gener&us public spirit, hia love for tbe city of his adoption, fcls unselfish interest in all Iti public affairs. I might speak of ha exceptional life among ns as a brother, husband, father, a rare spirit of devotion FROM 8.25 UP. that will ever remain to hla children as a legacy more precious then gold more to be desired than much fine gold. But I went to'eey a word about hi spirit of reverence. He was a man who believed In the vela of the religious Ufa HU character was Inspired by religious principle. The Hebrew prophet baa dhldi What doe the Lord require of the but to do Justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with thy God." That requirement was fulfilled by the Ufe and character of Charles A. Boutelle. That calm brow, noble la the majesty of death, telle as of the crest life that has gone to It reward. Freed from tbe limitations of the body and the Infirmities of the flesh, he has come to the command of those powers and qualities that have awakened th admiration and won the affection of thousands of hearts. He ha entered Into a larger life and noble service In the kingdom of llgni and blessed neas and Joy, and before this he has been greeted by the Lord and Master of osr Uvea. "Well done, good and faithful servant; thou has been faithful over a few things; I will make yon ruler over many things; enter thou into the Joy of the your Lord." "His work was 'done here. We would not caH him beck. His race of Ufe was run. And he leaves to his children sod . graadchUdrea the rich heritage of a noble life, an unblemished pubUc service aad a good name. The Proverb says: "A good name Is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favor rather than silver and gold." Aad who has a better name In this community and throughout the State of Maine, and who has found more favor among all classes of the people and stands la higher honor than Charles A. BouteUeT He stands in the line of the statesmen and warriors of hla country as the example to youth and the Incentive to the aspiring "And keep the soldier firm, the statesman pure, TUI in all lands and thro all human story The path of duty be the way to glory-" "And the greatest gift that God can bestow upoo a nation is magistrates. Judges, statesmen, . and legislators whose lives reveal purity of heart and disinterestedness of character - in the public service." At the close of the address Mrs. Rubins Ravi Brooks sang. When the Mists Have Rolled Away, and the relatives and friends then moved out of the church to their carriages. Afterwards people were given an opportunity to view tbe remains. The procession which formed la the street was headed by Chief of Police Gilman and a platoon of a dozen patrolmen. Then came the Bangor band, the members of the Military Order of the Loyal Legion, B. H. Deale and Hannibal Hamlin poets. Letter Carriers and Mall Clerks, Mayor Chapin and member of th city government, ex-mayoaa and citizens. The procession moved up French street, through Penobscot to Broadway, down Broadway and upState atreet to Essex where the escort stood with uncovered heads while the remain and the funeral party passed before them. The escort then boarded trolley cars, and went to Mt. Hope cemetery where the remains were Interred in the family lot foUowlng the burial service of the Grand Army of the Republic which was conducted by CoL A. B.

Th bride may go through the really truly service sometime but not with more grace and dignity that she played at getting married. But th groom waa more than natural. The unconcern which he show ed during th impressive service waa almost a topis of scandal among tha wedding guests.
