A Few Helpful Moments With the "Get There" Club
Memorial Day.

You may not care & snap about
the Civil War, Horace, and you
may even be indifferent to the
picture of the Old Veterans
marching along on May 30th to the
cemeteries to decorate the graves of
their dead—but just because you feel
that way, because you're young and
lusty and climbing up the ladder of
business success is just the reason
why you should stop and think a
minute. We young ones are very
prone indeed to minimize the value
of any and everything that isn't of
our own day and generation.

Now, cutting out all "fireworks"
and patriotic oratory, Horace, let's
get down to hard brass tacks and
take a look at this Memorial Day
business. Its [externals?] are a few [dot-]
tering feeble old men in blue strug-
gling along the [line?] of march on their
great day with flowers in their hands
and memories in their hearts of
stirring days when the whole land
ran blood and men's souls were tried
in a [illegible] that none of us will
ever have to be looked at. The bugles
are playing, the flags flying and the
entire country paying tribute to them
and their brothers [who?] long since
passed to the land where memories
are no more. That's the external side
of it, Horace—beautiful, just and in-

But underneath is a lesson that we
—especially we young chaps with our
minds intent upon financial troubles
and battles of existence—should take
home to ourselves not property as a
[illegible] but as [blurry] of real im-
portance. There where whole graves
are decorated on Memorial Day are
accorded that slight token of esteem
because they gave their lives for a
principle; because they set out to ac-

[article continues on column 2, top section]

complish, a certain [finding?] and did so.
Moreover, they [blurry] through" with
their hands clean! They proved them-
selves heroes, not weaklings, suc-
cessess, not failures. Had their repu-
tations better been [sullied?] or their
achievements of doubtful character,
we of today would not be holding them
in blessed memory. They "came
clean." Horace, they "came clean."

Why, a few weeks ago, when the
Titanic disaster held the entire coun-
try horror-stricken and crushed by
it terrible death toll, why did a
movement spring up from the hearts
of thousands to honor the heroic
dead with memorial services and
monuments of more lasting charac-
ter? Because, Horace, the men and
women over whom the sea closed its
icy waters died upholding the sacred
principle of heroism. Because they
"came clean" in the awful test to
which they were subjected. Because
they performed a grim task that set
the whole world reverently applaud-
ing their noble conduct.

Right now—even though no me-
morial of stone ever be erected to
them—they have their memorial in
the hearts of the millions who knew
their story—and in the hearts of
thousands still unborn who, in the fut-
ure, will read the grim tale and mar-
vel at their heroics.

Today isn't everything in life, Hor-
ace. There's a tomorrow, right on
this earth, that will last as long as
the world does. It isn't true that
nothing counts after you're dead.
These old fellows of the Grand Army
of the Republic still live, don't they?
And the Titanic's victims are right
this minute an inspiration to many
troubled hearts. There are other
generations coming after us and they
will look back to see what heritage
of honor, of heroism, of manhood we

[article continues on column 3, top paragraph]

have handed down to them. The
making of our memorial is in our
own hands.

Each of us has his part to enact
in it too. Our respective children
and their children will look to us for

[article continues on column 4, top paragraph]

inspiration. Shall we disappoint
them? There are many heroes
in the battle of peace of the busi-
ness world of [illegible]. Twentieth
Century life as there were in the
days of fire and sword. Are we—we
young chaps—proving equal to [illegible]
lead—are we "coming clean" in every-
thing we do?

Nobleman An Inventor

the ordinary umbrella and parasol.

of a frame and cover so made that
the latter is instantly detachable,

Swift punishment
often leaps out of
the jury-box.

The employer figur-
ing as the defendent in
a damage suit [initiated?]
by an injured employee
must not be surprised to
find the sympathy of the
jury with the plaintiff.

This is a frequent occurrence; and the
employer, in many instances, is called
upon in pay heavy damages.

The only effectual means of escaping
the burden imposed by an adverse verdict
is to secure the protection of an Ocean
Employers' Liability Policy. The Cor-
poration then assumes all of the expense
and [responsibility?] incident to the defense
and settlement of the case.

You can equip yourself with this safe-
guard at a nominal cost.

An opportunity to call and explain
to you this policy will be appreciated.

IN various countries there have
occurred from time to time all
sorts of "corners" to in [illegible]
[illegible] to all manner of good ori-
gins. Superstition has frequently
been the [basis?] of a corner in coins
of a particular denomination. A re-
markable case of this kind occurred
to South [Nambia?] in [illegible]. There op-
peared at [blurry] on the Sea of
[Apev?], a person proclaiming himself
a prophet, and as such he announced
his intention of redeeming the world.

Among the [illegible] doctrine ad-
vanced by this individual was included
the decree that all of his followers
must retain all five-kopek pieces is-
sued in the 1861, the year of the
emancipation of the serfs. They were
by reason of that [illegible] held to be
holy. It was not long before the ig-
norant peasants of the community
preserved the coins.

For an area of three hundred miles
the peasants collected the "holy"

coins and turned them over to the
prophet. When he gathered a
goodly number of the coins he de-
camped. In a way the Russion gov-
ernment may be [made?] to save a number
of its own coins in a certain comb-
ination. Each year it mints a [illegible]
tied number of bronze coins of the
[nominal?] value of one-fourth of a ko-
pek, about one-eighth of a cent.

As these coins are practically not in
circulation, only a few are issued. The
remainder are sold by the [illegible] au-
thorities at almost double their value
for the one of [illegible]. At one
time there was an [illegible] at-
