Williams was down from Dearfield to make his final proof on his homestead, S. W. % Sec. 31, T. 4. N. Cl W. P. M. Mr. Williams is the | second one to prove up. Ons other | has given notice for proof and five others are eligible to prove up. Mr. Williams has been offered $4,000 for his homestead and says if it is worth that much to the man who has never, lived on the place it is worth slo,oo*' to him as a home. He was one of the first settlers in Dearfield and went through hardships and made sacrifices that no other settler will have to un dergo, as conditions are growing bet ter each day for the people in Dear field. Now that we have a town at I our door, it will not be long before a homestead in Dearfield will be as comfortable and convenient and ac cessible as one within five miles of i Denver. It is hoped that all settlers will make good and secure their homesteads by rigidly following the law and doing just what the law says in making their homesteads their per manent homes. Dearfield has some five and ten-acre tracts which can and will produce as much as s4,o©b the amount offered Mr. Williams for his home with such a large lake upon it. We cannot afford for any Desj field settler to fail or lose his ’’home stead,’’ or land, by or through care lessness, ignorance or shiftlessim-s. We are again warning them to stay on their lands the required time be cause the government has its spot ters out and the inspectors who check up the little local land men. "Don't be weighed in the balance r.nd found wanting” by attempting to dodge, cheat or defraud or “get by,” because the government will catch you.

The following program for the fitting observance of Memorial day was writ ten especially for the official Memorial day annual of the state of Wisconsin: Pupils march from scboolbonse four abreast At a distance of about twen ty feet columns divide and march in double column to form a hollow square. At given signals pupils face in. A col or bearer (from Grand Army of the Republic post) steps into the center of square. Children together salute the flag, re peating the flag salute: We give our heads and out hearts to God and our country. One country, one language and one flag. And peace forevermore. Then repeating together: In memory of those brave men who left homes, parents, wives, children and for four long years endured all the sufferings of camp life and the horrors of the bat l tlefield that we might enjoy a united coun try freed from the curse of slavery—to these brave men we today offer our pray ers of thanksgiving and our tribute of powers. Some song Is then sung. The command is then given, and. they “fall in” behind the Grand Army of the Republic and the woman's re lief corps. At the cemetery a squad Is detailed to decorate each grave. This squad consists Of four boys and four girls. The girls carry flowers and the boys flags. The boj-s stand at each corner of the grave, thp girls at each side. They are given the command, •Decorate.” The boys place flags and the girls flowers. Then they unite in singing “Cover Them Over With Flow i ers.” As it is not always possible to find | children of the same size who are in dependent in their singing a quartet [passes from one grave to another to lead the singing. The decorating by the children is done after tbe soldiers have done tbeirs. or. rather, tbe squad of soldiers are at tbe grave tbe same time ns are tbe cbildreu and place their flowers first Roy's Decoration Day. I brought blue violets from tbe dell For grandpa's grave today. For grandma says he loved them well Before he marched away. The other grandpas all are old. With thin hair almost gray. But he hue curls that ahina like gold And blue eyee full of play. Grandma showed me his picture, hung Upon a chain of gold. llow strange that he should be so you nr And she should be so old! —Ninette M. Lows ter. Defied the President Graift Would Not Permit John* son to Put'Defeated Con federates to Death F all the stories told of Ulysses I 8. Grant one of the most re markable is that related by Justice Wendell I*. Stafford oC o the supremo court of the District of Columbia. justice Stafford said that shortly after Lincoln’s assusslnatlou Johnson told Grant he intended to execute nil Confederate officers and officials and that Grant turned him from this course by threatening to seize Wash ington' with his victorious army uml proclaim martial law. •‘Not long after the death of Lincoln Johnson summoned Grant to the White House," said the Justice. ‘‘When they were alone he said. ‘I Intend to (lx it forever in the minds of the American people that secession Is a crime.’ Grant was silent. ‘I intend to have all Confederate officers and officials pot to a public death.’ Graut did not speak. When Johnson had finished bis harangue, which continued for a quarter of an hour, Grant rose in si lence to take his leave. ‘What do you mean to do?* said Johnson. “Then the quiet man made answer: T am going bnck to the camp. 1 shul! move my army upon Washington. I sbfcll proclaim martial law and take command. My reason for so doing is this: 1 received the surrender of Gen eral Lee, which ended the war. That surrender put in my hands the life and safety of every officer and official on the Confederate side, uud I hold myaelf in duty and honor bound to see that they are protected according to the rules of war and common right You can communicute with me at my headquarters.’ “Grant returned to his camp, issued the necessary orders and waited for the proclamation. He received word that Johnson had changed bis mind. A victorious genera) refusing to re linquish his command and calling his devoted legions to lift him to a throne —that is un old part on the stage of history.
