Deserve a Hall In
W. Little Suggests a Plan That
Will be Popular.
To the Editor of the Democrat:
Having a matter I would like to
bring to the thoughtful people of
Summit county, I bring it through
the Djimocbat, thinking it mav
rcach more people who may be in
terested than in ..ny other way. I
was one of the men who voted for a
new cpurt house at our last election,
not that I want more law, but less if
possible. Hut what we are com
pelled to have, f want in a good,
suitable place, and 1 want a safe
place for all valuable records that
must be preserved and ai e very im
portant to nearly every citizen of the
The proposition 1 want to bringfor
all the voters to consider is that
when a new court house is built that
a hall lie made for the Grand Army,
with all modern improvements, free ,
OI rental, and lor tneir exclusive use
as long as one member is living in
the cQiinty and then for all time as a
home and for" the safe care of all
relics and records of every post in
the county, a sacred place where our
children can visit in years to come.
Why do I think this right and just?
Because the loyal men at home said
they would remember us if we would
go to the front, which they have
most nobly done. But the number
of our old soldiefb are very rapidly
growing less in every post all over
this country, and many posts in Sum
mit county can hardly exist under
the cxpenseof rent, etc., aside from
the work for the needy comrades.
Buckley post of Akron, one of the
largest in the stale, does a work for
the needy of their postwith that free
spirit of comradeship that is not
equalled anywhere in this great free
country of ours. Then the rent and
.expense of keeping the hall is a'bur-
ben where burdens should not fall.
What we want is a home for every
G. A. R. man in -Summit county,
when his post is closed for want of
members or otherwise
1 am sure that when the time
comes, (as it will), that this thought
will meet the approval of all just
people in the- couuty. There are
others when plans are completed,
who will be also remembered, our.
noble volunteers of 1899.

"Heard the Discourse.
The Eightieth Anniversary
'-- '--- 7;ggrr'
The different lodges of the LO.O.F.
of this city, marched in a body Sun
day morning to St. Paul's Episcopal
church, preceded by the Eighth Reg
iment band. The church was not
large enough to accommodate the
crowd, and many were compelled to
stand on the outside.
Sunday was the eightieth anniver
sary of this order, and the lodges as
sembled in obedience to the order of
the Grand Lodge, which designatesa
certain day to be appropriately com
memorated by the order in attend
ance upon Divine service.
Rev. Blake's address was instruct
ive and helpful. In his introductory
remarks, he reviewed the history of
the order, and showed its far-reaching
influence and power. In speak
ing of the two-fold intent of this
order, he said that the social feature
when properly governed, helped to
foster the better social elements, and
to make one more considerate of the
claim of others. His closing words
spoken with jinpressivenes and
earnestness, made a deep impression
upon the audience: "Take the name
of Jesus with you, for in Him you
have tbegreatest friend. The most
astounding eNhibition of love that
the world over saw and the very es
sence of all truth; for He is the Way,
the Truth and the Life."
