F.Iaborate preparations had lieen made
for the observance on Monday, In this city,
of the beautiful and sacred customs of Dec
oration day, and the exercises gave promise
of heingeqiial in beauty and impresslveness
to an ever iierfurined here 011 a similar is1
casion. '1 he day dawned bright and clear
and the sun shown out in all Its glorious
splendor. Soon, however, dark, lowering
clouds 1m gan to gather m the west, and by
10 o'clock heavy, mist) banks hung threat
eningly over the city. A slight shower fell,
but It w as scarcely enough to dampen the
streets. It was sincerely hoped that tlie
rain might not come, until after the exer
cises, but It was hoping against fate, lty
noon the rain was pouring 111 torrents and
at 1 o'clock the storm had settled down to
business In a w a that pressaged an after
noon of it.
Still hoping that too storm might cease
in time for the parnii) at 2 o'clock, and the
succeeding exercises at FernclHT, the au
thoiities of Mitchell post waited until tlie
last minute and then, as the rain still
(mured, they secured Mack's opera house
In which to hold tlie exercises.
At half past 2 o'clock the procession,
which had been formed in the Arcade,
headed by the Champion Cit Militar band,
moved through the drenching rain to the
opera house. The storm marred the beauty
of the display, but tlie sacredness of theex
erclses Was the more marked the patriot
ism of JJiose who braved the drenching tor
rent to pay tribute to their fallen comrades,
the more trul tested.
In doing honor to the nation's dead under
such circumstances, the ex-soldiers and cit
izens of Springfield did honnrto themselves.
The storm w hi li washed away the glare
and glitter of the display made more appar
ent the solemnity and true significance of
KM-.r.flSKS at black's.
When the Champion City Military Band
opened the exercises at the opera house
with an excellently rendered selection of
sacred music the house was just comfort
ably full. Members of Mitchell Post and
