In Memoriam.

Comrade S. E. Bellar, a corporal in Company E, 134th Reg. New York Vol. Inf., died in Olathe, Kan., July 2, 1917. As we look into the grave that received the body of Comrade Bellar, we cannot fail to admire and honor the spirit which prompted him to present that body as a target to receive the bullet that was aimed at the life of the greatest republic on earth- which republic is now leading the nations to a better life. We must admit that his life was not lived In vain, though It may have been an humble one. And we are solemnly reminded that the feet of his old comrades now  press the crumbling brink which slipped from beneath his feet and launched his spirit Into the ocean of eternity.
The Post tenders heartfelt sympathy to the surviving friends of Comrade Bellar.
