"No more beautiful or impressive scene could be witnessed tnan that of a redeemed nation, ceasing from its daily toil and gathering around the gravesof its defenders, bearing offer ings cf flowers and giving suitable ex pression of the love and gratitude which a great people show towards those who gave their lives in defence of their country. "To every soldier of the Union it is a day filled with precious memories. Unlike the dead of other wars, the ' memory of our comrades never fades Though unseen by mortal eye, they still walk by our side, and their place in our hearts remains unfilled. "We rejoice as the day approaches, and in ever diminishing numbers lov ingly deck with flowers the multiply ing graves of our comrades. In broken column and with enfeebled step we still carry the flag they loved so well and march to the same music to which their loyal feet were attuned, our hearts pulsed with joyous pride as we realize that the memory of those who fell in defence of 'freedom and the right,' is immortal. "Comrades will therefore, in com pliance witli well established custom, fittingly observe Friday, May 30, 1902, as Memorial day.
