Concerning The Cemetery.
' Thc cemetery is kept in a much
more ered?table manner thin it ivas
a}decade ago but not so well as it
was two-??r three .years ago. There
is some complaint 'that the money
raised for this purpose is not wisely
spent, or at least thc results obtain
ed are not as satisfactory as were
some time ago. A colored man
should be employed to give six
days in lhe week to the cemetery,
and not divide his time, in part at
least, between individuals here and
there. The keeping of the cemetery
in proper condition will require all
of the time of one man. Unless the
entire cemetery is well cared for,
the day will come when it will not
be an easy matter to raise funds for
this purpose. '
