MEMORIAL DAY OBSERVED Grand Parade and Crowd. Large Memorial Day was obsorved with due ceremonies. An unusual ly large crowd was in Logan, and the interesting program prepared for the occasion, as published by our last week's issue was nicely carried out. The memorial address by Judgo Reeves, of Lancaster, at the Presbyterian church, was listened to by a large audience, and was exceptionally interesting. The work of the firiug squad was the best ever seoti here. A Lancaster band was in attendance and furnished music for the day. WHAT IS ME.MOMAr.? Cincinnati 1'ost.l No, Lad, you don't understand why a lot of grizzled old men should waste a day when God's sun is shining, and march away to gloom of a cemetery and scatter flowers on mounds that to you are mounds, but to the world represent a wonderful idea. Away back, when your grand daddy had two good legs and was as spry as yon are today, it became necessary to light to preserve the unity of a nation. This great country was plunged into war, and you've heard enough to know what a terrible thing war is. And this was worse, for it was a war at home. It wasn't like fight ing a foreign foe. It wasn't like defeating the British and driving them out of a land in which they had no business. It was a family war, and it hurt because brothers fought brothers, yes, and killed them. And fathers and nns were found in opposing armies. Oh, boy, when you get big enough to understand, and love your country as you must if you are to be wise and good citizen, you should prny the good God to whom v) say your ''Now I lay me," every night, to preserve us from another civil war. It 'asted years, lad. It starved thousands, butchered them, wound ed tnem, tortured them. It took the best blood in the country. North and South, for don't forget, lad, that there were good wen in gray as well as in blue. They fought for what they thought to be right and so did we, and chat means awful fighting, lad. Why, boy, if you should take all the people of 10 big towns like this and bury them right now, it would not cover the deaths in that big war. And j'otir grandmother and thousands of other mothers and grandmothers cried until they no longer could shed tears. And. some of them fought like men and others went as nurses, and if Car negie should make medals night and day for a year he couldn't hope to supply them to the heroes of that war, men nnd women, yep' and children. And most of the folks w h o fought because of their love of country, lad. It is as fine as your love for your mother. It is some thing that makes a nation great and strong; and men true and up right. You know, lad, a giod soldier i always u good citizen, and a brave rann can never be a very bad man. And finally it was all over und the right triumphed as right must if the world is to live, and then North and South, a great efi'ort was made to forget, to be brothers and friends ugain; to build up a stricken laud; and to take up the burden of making this the most wonderful land on the globe. And we are succeeding, lad, The flag thntyour daddy hoisted over the. house this morning is the Hag of Alabama, nnd Texas, and Ohio, und of all of us, and I love it, for I foiight for it, and everv one of those green mounds repre sents love for it, and every boy should grow up to feel that it be longs to him and thut, if trouble comes, he should lay down his life for it. So you see, lad Decoration Day represents love of country; devo tlou; appreciation; self-sacrifice, Those are long words, dear lad. Perhaps they are too long for a little boy, but they are the things that help transfer youngsters like you into strong men ntitl good men. And now we'll got into the parade, and white we keep step to the music of the fife and drum, we'll bo glad that the big world isn't too busy to deyojo ono day each year to Memory, and the men who fought for the grand Idea.

A law passed by the recent leg islature bearing directly on the rondB of tho county 'has just been explained by tho attorney goiioral of the stnto and is to tho ell'eat that the towiiBhip roads supervis ors' whose duty it is to sco the road tax of tho county is worked out each year, have been abolished.

The.trustees of the county will make thoir levy for the rond tux as usual fer thetlmo being and af ter the first Monday in January, 1007, will also do the work of the supervisors. Anti-Swearing. The piison hospital has come to be the most sanctimonious place in the peniteniary. It is estimated that within a period -of a few months that it will be particularly isolated. Guards are now coming to avoid the place. There is only one renou to assign to this strange antipathy and that is the "prison anti-swearing society." Guard Bowman is said to be .the latest victim of the organization which is constantly growing in number. It is said that he used a word which comes under the rules of the society and that lie was im mediately fined and ordered to set up the lemonades. Guard Bowman objected in view of the fact -that he is not a member. This objection was overruled by the members and the guard paid the fine. Saturday Chaplain Starr called as manjr members of the society to gether as he could locate at the time and in well-chosen words highly commended the work of the organization which has not had its paralled in tho history of any prison in the world. Col. Dis patch. Must Pay Dow Tax. Columbus, Ohio, May 20. Aud itor of State Guilbert to-day sent out circular letters to all County Auditors concerning the payment of the Aikin tax law of $1,000 for the trafficking in liquor by social, fraternal and other clubs, selling or furnishing to their members or guests intoxicants of any sort. According to the letter ill such or ganizations are liable for tho tax,' as the following will indicate : "In the case of the University Club of Cincinnati vs. Frank Ratterman, Treasurer, and Fred Raine, Auditor of Hamilton 'Coijn; ty, Ohio (3 C. C, 18), the Court held : "The furnishing of such wines and liquors so purchased by said club to its members in this manner waB a 'trafficking in intoxicating liquors' within the meaning of Seo tion 8 of 'An act providing against tho evils resultiug from tho traffic in intoxicating liquors, passed May 14, 1880 (82 O.

"Tho foregoing opinion of tho Court clearly determines this ques tion." Stopped His Paper.

DAMANGING TESTIMONY Comes From the State the Onset. at The case of tho State of Ohio against Edward Donby, accused of murder in the, second degree, be gan in Common Pleas Court, Mon day morning. Senio difficulty was had in securing a jury, .almost tho entire morning session being takon up. The panel ns completed con sisted of Mossers. John D. Shaw, W. H Nixon, Marion Hansel, Harry Risley, James McLin, Geo. Shaw, Daniel Bray, John Timber- lake, Samuel Blum, Amos Groves, J. W. Nixon, and D. O. Weltner. Judge 0. W. II. Wright was re tained to assist in the prosecution; attorneys for the defense are Messrs. H. E. Sparnon, John C. Pettit, and E. O. Pettit. The specific crime alleged against Donby in the indictment now on trial is that of unlawfully, purposely, and maliciously killing Robert Butts. Tho trouble occur red on the railroad track in front of James Johnson's Restaurant, at New Pittsburg, on the evening of Sunday, February 25, 1900. A full account of the shooting, as then understood, was published in these columns at the time. The State occupied Monday af ternoon and Tuesday morning in p-esenting their evidence, resting shortly after dinner Tuesday. The chain as forged by them is, in the absence of rebutting testimony, strong against the accused, and'is, briefly, about as follows: Butts and his friend, James Bridgewater, became involved, in an altercation with Donby and some other colored boys thnt evening, the trouble growing indirectly out of a pre vious quarrel, in the afternoon, between Butts and a young color ed man named Alpha Harden, who, it will be remembered was tried here last week for assault upon Butts. After some words, it appears that Butts became armed with a pick, and Bridgewater with a rock, Donby standing his ground with a revolver. On be ing urged by friends to lay aside their weapons, both the white boys did so; Donby, at the same time, offered to 'give up his gun:to two neutral parties, who refused to take it. It is claimed by the prosecution that Butts and Bridge water remained unarmed, and were so when shot. They persist ed, 'however, in taunting Donby, calling him names, and saying he was afraid to shoot. Several wit nesses testified that this wae the extent of the provocation a claim whioh, needless to say, the de fense attempts to rebut. Donby finally opened fire on tho pair, shooting Bridgewater twice and Butts twice. Th,e State's evidence is that both wero retreating when fired upon. Donby's third shot entered Butt's back, in the region of the left kidney, and slightly to tho left of the second lumbar ver tebra, passing onne through the colon and several times through the small intestine, and lodging finally in front, and on his left eide. Tho other shot merely graz ed his body under the left arm. He was assisted to the home of hit brother-in-law, George Jenkins, near by, and cared for by physi cians, Both Butts and Brjdge water died, within a few minutes of each other, in a Columbus hos pital, on the following Tuesday. The general defense to the homi cide is on the ground of self-preservation. It was dark, and there, was a mixed crowd of white and colored men at the scone, Donby is crippled, both feet being very badly clubbed, and would not dtand much show In an ordinary fist fight. Ho 'claims to have had good. eaBons for believing, that he was in great bodily danger. The white boys had threatened1 him, nnd there were general assertions, said to have been nude there on mat uay, mat It wu tlmo to "cleau the iiJggera out." '1,'he testimony in some particular is, MWBHWfHWJ fMUUUtLUX'U"S'lHyftW as might bo oxpooted, somewhat contradictory. Tho trial was postponed over Wednesday, that being a holiday, and will very likely last the groat or part of this, week. A large number of witnesses are subpu'nn ed on the cose, nnd every step is being olosoly contested. A New Game. A new game lins croppod out called "Tho Editor" nnd a conn try weekly tolls about it.

"We have fallen upon n time of such unrest and nwnkoning that a disposition to tear down and uproot seems to prevail on every side. This has grown to be a manifestation of intense resentment on the part of our people, aroused by a situation challenging their love of our good name und their devotion to the purposes of our free institution. I believe there is a danger that stands opposite this passionate tem per that should be carefully watched. I refer to our liability to forget in the heat of our righteous indignation that, whatever may be pulled down or uprooted, SOMETHING BETTER MUST BE PUT IN ITS PLACE. We cannot act safely or hope for reformatory result unless wo look beyond the confusing rubbish and unsightly waste of demolishing activity. The ultimate consequences of demolition and precisely what should be built and planted when the stage of pulling down and uprooting has been passed should be clearly in the minds of those who assume to load in the crusade ngninsi existing evils.' This is not' a time for IN DEFINITE STATEMENTS or inconsiderate suggestions. In any view of the situation which confronts us there should be in some quarter and in constant operation a powerful CONSTRUC TIVE force to balance the impetuosity and check the recklessness which nro apt to grow out of the ex6iting havoc of overturning. This constructive force should be found, if nowhere else, in the steadiness, patriotism and outspoken courage of our periodicals.
