Jud Turkins Sonya o lady Man has to do one of two than Gow got Rich or depend on Charity the nation s remembrance. Every president of the United states since Tho civil War except one has Felt honoured by an invitation to speak at Arlington on memorial any. Worthy of the dead. For Many years however this Wistaria covered Templo has been entirely inadequate for Tho rapidly growing throngs attending Tho services and some thirteen years ago the grand army of Tho Republic Oppen led to Congress for a building fitting Tho greatness of Tho nation s Valhalla.
