and presented a beautiful appearance.
Snall Confederate flags marked the
graves of the veerar.s. The exer

Mr. Parkinson and consisted of sorgs,
declamations and recitations, all of
which were especially well rendeadU.
Prayer was offerred by the Rev. 1r.

be present. The only other speaker
for the occasion was Mr. Thomas M.

made a strong plea to the young men
of today that in the present str-.gale
they acquit themselves with the same
bravery hat characterized their f:>re

this address a book and garlands of
flowers were presented to the surviv
