Gates, better known taraout central Illinois aa "Sergeant" Bates, died on Saturdy afternoon at his boms In Saybrook. He had bean in falling health for a long time, during which he had short periods of slight Improvement. Gilbert Henderson Bates vaa born in spring-water- alley, Livingston county, New York, February IS. 18?if. He was descended from two of the oldest coliinial families of New Eng-lanu. At an early age he emigrated to the west and waa living la Wisconsin at the outbreak of the civil war. Ua and his three brothers entered the union service from that state. At firai ho did what was called special service and after a while withdrew from that and Joined Company A, l'lrst Wisconsin heavy artillery, in which be served as a sergeant until the clone of the war. Mr. Bates waa married to Mki Ann E. Nob. of Albion, Wis, on December 23, 1S63. Six children were born to them, two of whom died In Infancy ; The living ones are Mrs. HatUa Bro- kaw, Oi Xcponset; Mrs. Klnora M- Means, of Bioomington : Krank Bates, f.f aaybrook, and lira, Addie E. Means, f Saybrook. His Great Nstiensl Mission. The thing for which Sergeant Bates is most famous is his carrying of the flag to many parts of tha United States and to foreign countries. Af ter the surrender at Appomattox the great question in the .-ountry was. Had the southern people given up tha contest in good faith? Many politicians assr;ed and many northern ' people believed that they had net and that the southern people would not . respect or assist in maintaining tha laws. Sergeant Bates, after studying the question, became convinced that the American people had three great and all-important objects to attain in which every citmen should feel a personal interest. First, peace to the community, state and nation; second, the restoration of fraternal relations between the two great sections of the country, and, third, the creation and maintenance of a great national brotherhood based upon knowledge, industry and loyalty. .. The prove his belief and promote the above objects be went to Vicks-burg and unfurled tha onion flag oa the streets at a time when it waa honestly believed bv thousands o' northern people that was certain bp 6IIUS ABE T8E OCCASION, NOT THE CAUSE OF DISEASE If .nn nn InlaefAPAnM lih it.- "pply (subluxation) at the spine all tha or' gans 01 tne ooay win ne working is co-orim,. tlojl, resulting In no collection of waste mauri als In the system, bo multiplication of ((lrni no Irritation et tissue, toxins or poiaons, t)ier by NO disease.

Sergeant Bates was unharmed and afterwards he carried the flag unfurled thru the very heart of the confederacy to Washington, traveling the entire distance of 1,500 miles on foot, unarmed, and living on the hospitality of tho people. lie not only was unharmed, but be met with an ovation in many places in Mississippi and on to the Fotomac. This fat brought national fame te Sergeant Bates and en reaching Washington he waw publicly received with honors by President Johnson at the executive mansion by matabars of the senata and house and citisens and soldiers of Washington. Preached National Unity. Sergeant Bates did pot stop at unfurling the flag at Washington, but went before the American pseple as a speaker and for twenty years. went up and down the country pleading for national unity and the placing of this principle above partisanship. He carried this kind of work ta both the north and the south. In Tvovem. ber. 1882. he delivered seventy-five public speeches, most of them an hour long. Always on these occasions he carried the standard in his hand with the flag unfurled. He made his tec. tures without ady change and kept 1 up his work until his health failed land he was forced in April, 1S8. to retire. Made Trip Abroad. The following extracts from a letter from Sergeant liatta explain the motives that actuated him in 1S72 In making a trip to England and carrying the stars and stripes from Gretna Green to Indon: "Let us units the patriotism and intelligence of England, Ireland. Scotland and America In the interests of humanity, and thus carry civilization to, and maintain it upon, a much higher plane of morality, politics and religion." He thus marched with the stars and stripes from the Scotch border te Ixmdon, making many addresses with this same purpose.' He also spoke in other foreign countries. While engaged in this work he was several times offered largo salaries and frequent opportunities for acnumulat-ing wealth, but he refused these of fers and pursued his patriotio work without pecuniary reward.
