In! these piping tihies of peace there 1 is a class of people, too numerous by fat^who greet the mentiori of the vet^ erfttt soldier with a sneer. The great war of the rebellion is to them but a shadowy recollection, arid their remembrance of the sufferings and sacrifices of those bloody year.4 has been Well-nigh blotted out. The young men who left their homes and loved ones, relinquished golden opportunities for the future atid imperiled their lives upon many a hard- fought field of battle, were Welcomed home with peans of praise when victory crowned their arms and a nation's life was saved. The realization of all' they had sacrificed, all they had endured and all they had accomplished was fresh in the hearts of a grateful people, and they vowed that as long as life should last they would weave wreaths of honor for the heroes of the republic.. But time is a Wonderful magician. The men who gave the golden years of youth and surrendered the opportunities of budding manhood upon the altar of patriotism are now gray with age and bent. Scattered throughout the various hospitals and homes of the country are thousands of veterans, once highly honored, but now too often looked upon by' the thoughtless as in- cumbrances upon the face of the earth;and there are far too many men to-day made rich and prosperous through the sacrifices and sufferings of these veterans, who are so lost to any sense of shame as to openly begrudge.- the pension pittance the veteran soldiers receive. Such as these will find little to admire in the following eloquent tribute pronounced . by B. F. . Simpson, in a memorial address at Paoln, May &0, 1890, but it will find an echo in every true patriot's heart: I "I have heard some very young men complain of the preference given 'in public employment to the old soldiers. I have heard some man not so young speak sneerinpfly, 'that they were tired of this old soldier racket.' The old soldier .racket? What is it? I will tell you. It is the song of the nation. It is the ,hymn of the republic. It is an an the in of national gratitude. It is an oJe to liberty. It is the sacred music of brave hearts, beating in unison with national life. It is the funeral dirge sung at the grave of a comrade. It is the rustle of sweet flowers on Memorial day. It is the rattle of small"- arras. It 1$ the 'deep-mouthed baying of great guns.' It is the bugle calls , and drum beats 'o'f'cffi'ty? ."It'is'ttfe* music'of patriotism,' rambling all over the scale, and not caring a continental whether it is below the base clef or above tfye tenor. It is the crow of the thoroughbred fighting 1 cocks who have survived the conflict, and are now perched on the top rail of the barnyard fence, flapping their wings and bidding, defiance to the whole world. < "Who are the men that tnade^ the racket? They are the survivors of more than 100 bloody battlefields. They are the men in whose eyes and ears, during every hour of the day, the thunder and lightning of battle is still flashing and sounding. They are the surplus of patriotic duty accumulated during the heroic days of the^ republic, They are the most precious assets of the nation. They are a guard of honor, always on duty, -to protect the national existence. They are the men to whom bleeding sires transmitted glorious institutions, and who fpught so gallantly to preserve, as their ancestors did to establish, a government of the people, by the people, fop the people. They are the men who took the stay- spangled banner in their ha&ds aVd'c^rrred it';frpm the lakes of the Nortb/fp^he, 'giilf' pf • the South, 'and held 'it .alplfe until- every Jiuma,n' being within our national boundaries 'acknowledge^ 4t® supremacy, They .are, men who will transmit to tHfiv posterity such a r}ch inheritance of pvtriotip^ty that the fair fame of their fatherland will a,ga,in>l?e stained by rebellion." said the stftftlsA tatfsiciaflj "1 wf nt to 6f)6ak to y6tt. rt The colonel dre# still closer td hita, and, bending down his head, Said ( "Well, what have you to say?"

Among the stories of Lincoln's simplicity of manner and speech there are none, perhaps, more characteristic of the real nature of the man than two which were recently related by a man who was one of sixteen soldiers, who composed the body-guard of General Halleck at Washington in 1804. This was at the. time when General Grant was placed in command of the army of the Potomac. '•I was on duty at General Halleck's office one day," says the former soldier, "when President Lincoln came up the steps, looking very thoughtful. .We saluted, and stood at present arms till he had passed; but the president did not seem to notice us at all. "He was closeted with General ETal leek for an hour. , Then he came out, and when opposite us he stopped, raised his hat and said: "Excuse me, boys, for not saluting you when I came in. I was thinking of a story.' "It was then late in the afternoon, but he said 'Good morning, boys,' and went away. "A few days later General Grant came with his staff, and a council of war was held ih General Halleck's office. The president, ' Stanton, Seward'-and Grant were there. When it was over they stepped into the hall, shaking hands and saying good-by, A railroad official came in and said: 'General Grant, we have a special car for you,' "President Lincoln said, 'Take him on a platform car or anything, only get him to the front as soon as possible!'
