Many people who attended tho band concert on last Friday night did not , know why the banj stood and playwi Tho Star Spangled Banner at tho oon" ing- of tho concert. It was because in tho upper room of tho Court House tho body of a soldier of the lato war lay in state.

It was out of respect to this soldier dead that tho band played the national anthem at tho opening o its program. . Lato Sunday afternoon heavy clouds came up in tho north-west and about suppertlme tho wind shifted strong from the east. Old timers predicted rain and prepared. During tho night over an inch of rain fell according to the weather report. Weatherman Shilling cannot got tho credit, for on Saturday his prediction was fair for Sunday.
