As the water was likelj- to do damage, and Mr. Jangraw oould not tind Mr. t'orse, he hroke open tbe door of the : iihotographer's rooms and set thiims rluht. with this Mr. Corae found no fault, aathe damage to the door was repaired hy Mr. Jangraw. Mr. Bolden, however, saw a aerloui breaoh of the law in tbe aot, and, I armed wlth tbe blgheat legal authorlty on ; the lubjeot, he entered the harher-shop and p ii)ied out the heinousnesa of the oltense.

The Sons of VeleranH, Nnder ctimmand of Ciiptain A. G, Eaton, were the lirst to arrlve, followed hv the (irand Arinv men und the Rellef Corps. Tbe cburch was comfortahly lllled. Mr. Oallagher reail a leleotlon from the llxty-flrst chapter of fsHiah. The texl of tbe aermon was Bxodus ill: 14. In openlng, the stieaker referred tobls recent trip to the South, whieh Inolnded trllltl to the hattle Heldsof Chicauiaui;a and l.ookout Moiintain. He spoke ot the faet that on the tield of Chicamaiiga lotl of laml are to-ilay heing offered for sale. The conlrast betWeeD this IVldsnoe of proitresa and peacefnl enter prie and tbe scenea of carnage that were witnedHed there twenty-live years ago was striking. The South is loyal to-day, and tbe intelligent element acknowledges that it was hetter that victory came to tbe North. Mr. Oallagher proceeded to speak of what Memorial day commemorates. Kirat, it comuiemorates the valor and patrlotlsm Of the private soldier as well as of the leailer. Again. it cominemoratea Ihe victory of llb erty over oppression. Great hattles are always fouglit for great ideas. Tblrd, the day comuiemorates the trlumph of IdeBI overgreat obitacles. The ideas for wbioh tbe Cnlon SOldleri fought were those con nected with the welfare and dignity of btt manity, Still another thing that the day commemorates is the value of American ideas. These ideas were enuinerated, as fol lows: The nobility of labor, the aovereignty of tbe people, tbe equallty of all men, the Nacredness of the hallot, suhinission to the majority, the perpetuity of the I'nion, and the grandtiess of humau manhood. Atiother fact whieh the day commemorates is the lupremaoy of rightovarall tormsof wrong, Tbe rigbt always triumphs in the end. It is unalterably tme that there is nothing re ally good whloh is not ri(ht. The great les son to he learned hy all is to carry the rlghl into everytbing we do. The war of the re hellion had to be. It was necessary for the establlshment of rigbt aml juattoa. in the land. Gnt of it all good has come, aa good a'ways comes from suffering and bardship. Mr. Gallagber'a address was eloijiient and earnest, lllled with heantiful imagery, elothed iu happy diction. It was llstened to with undlvided attention througbout. The singing hy the ehoir during the serviees was not the least interesting part of the ex ercises. Tbe aelections were all given with much expression. Tbe serviee aa a wbole waa one of iinusual interest. Kiint, Kirsi Regl . Clark, com No. 8, Patri oaptain; st. Qeneral Stepben Soiis of Veterans. A. Rnv. G, T.
