Yesterday was a gala day for Colby, and she put on her "bib and tucker" early in the morning to greet the old soldiers when they came inside her gates. The sun came out warm and bright, and in a very short time the streets and roads were dry, after the previous dy's rain. The merchants caught the true patriotic spirit and decorated in fine style, in hon or of the Old Soldiers' Reunion, 'lney did themselves and the city proud. Franklin avenue presented a beautiful appearance, with heavy drapings of red, white and blue bunting and Hags noai ing majestically in the gentle breeze. Two large flags were suspended from ropes stretched across Franklin avenue, between Fourth and Fifth and Third and Fourth, and all day long they nodded to the praises of the veterans by the youth who have become liberty-loving and thoroughly enthused whenever the stars and stripes are brought to view. Veter ans, from far and from near, gave their nresence to the occasion, and the town was virtually in the hands of the heroic fathers . As they met, they warmly grasp ed each other's hand, as only old soldiers know how to do,' and with gladdened hearts, talked over the pleasurable mem ories of the past. MF.nciIAKTS WHO DECORATED. Among the merchants on the various j streets who decorated in some manner out of respect, to the old soldiers, the re porter noted the following: M. Niskcrn. Huntley & Bebne. G. W. Smith. J. M.
