ercises of the day took place. The
exercises were opened with music by
the band, after which the usual ex
ercises conducted by the post fol
lowed. The graves of the nation's
heroes were properly decorated with
flowers by the school children. The
principal oration of the day was de
livered by Kev. Father Thiebes, of
the Catholic church, who spoke feel
ingly and loving y of the nation's dead
andcxho;ted his Wearers to honor
and respect and cherish the memory
of those who saerilieed so much for
us. The exercises conducted by the
school children under the direction
of their teachers were highly inter
esting and appreciated.

The Union of ve.-terdav morning
took occasion to tind fault with May
or Mcdill because of his refusal to as-
ume the risk of permitting the use
of ladders belonging to the hook and
ladder truck for decorating the sol
diers" monument. When permission
was sought from Mayor Me.T ill Mon
day be informed the committee wait
ing on him that he would be only too
happy to render all the assistance
iosilile to the veterans in decorating
the monument, and that he would go
with the committee to some of our
painting lirms and secure the ladders
necessary, but he explained that he
could not dismantle the equipment of
the lire department under anv cir
cumstances and take chances on a
tire breaking out during the ceremo
nies when the ladders might be need
ed; that the department was paid for
bv the tax pavers who had a right to
expect it always in readiness for
dutv. The committee readily ac
quiesced in the mayor's views, and it
so happened that a lire alarm was
sounded yesterday before the conclu
sion of the services in Court House
square, demonstrating that the pre
cautionary step on the part of the
niavor was well taken.

The Value of the River Thames.
In connection with the value of the river
Thames to the mercantile interests of the
English metropolis a good story is related
of James I ami the lord mayor of London.
James, as was often the case during his
reign, was upon a certain occasion in great
need of money, and ke applied to the cor
poration of London for the loan of JE'JO.000.
This gentle request the corporation re
fused, upon which the king, in high dudg
eon, sent for the lord mayor and the chief
of the aldermen, and having scolded them
severely for what ke was pleased to term
their disloyalty he insisted upon their rais
ing the money for him.
"Please your majesty," said the lord
mayor, "we cannot lend you what we have
"You must sret it." declared the king.
"We cannot." said the mayor.
"I'll compel you!" cried James, with a
stamp of his foot.
"But your majesty cannot compel us to
do that which is beyond our iower," re
torted the mayor boldly.
"Xo!"' exclaimed the king angrily. "Then
I'll ruin your city forever. I'll make a des
ert of Westminster. I'll remove my whole
court law, parliament and all to York,
and then what will become of you;'''
"Please jour majesty," replied the lord
mayor, with a sulimisMve bow, "you will
remove your courts and yourself whenever
yon phase, but then- is still left one conso
lation for us poor merchants of Iondon
you cannot take the Thames along with
Jumes did not remove his courts. Xew
Iang:or In CobwebH.
Cobwebs form an important item in the
medical armamentarium of the old women
who aru so fond of acting on occasion as
practitioners of the healing art. As an ;:p
lication to wounds, for instance, to cheek
bleeding cobwebs are lclieved to possess a
special virtue. If they possess any virtue
at all, it is the virtue of ineffable dust and
dirt hence the modern advice to "beware
of cobwebs!"' Not so long ago three or four
cases of lockjaw were reported ns follow
ing on the application of spiders webs to
wounds. Tins event is readily explicable.
The germ of lockjaw resides in earth and
is likely to miugle with the dust which
settles on the webs. Hence, conveyed into
the wound in this way, the germs work
their dire elTjcts. Rut Inspector General
Macdonald, M. IV, says a microscopic ex
amination of the webs reveals a trap for all
sorts of considered and unconsidered t rifles
in the way of dust and germs. Colonies of
bacteria, he tills us, may lie detect ed in the
webs, which, like delicate screens or filters,
absorb anything .and everything which
floats throuh the air and settles upon
them. Xew York Telegram.
