young Hamilton's entry into the

Memorial Day passed off very
quietly in Cottonwood, Wednes
day. It had been planned to
hold some open air exercises and
enjoy a ball game between the
Cottonwood team and a team re
presenting the First National
Bank at Lewiston but the cold
and stonny weather provented
the ball team from reaching this
place. However, all business
houses closed at 2 p. m. for the
afternoon, flags were displayed
and many visited the cemeteries'
where the graves of deceased
relatives and friehds were cover

ON MAY 19, 1898—LOVED
The celebration of the Silver
Jubilee, the 25th anniversary of
the ordination of Rev. Father
Willibrord, pastor of the local
Catholic church, into the priest
hood, took place yesterday morn
ing at the church during the
Corpus Christi services and was
largely attended by the members
of this and adjoining parishes.
Father Willibroi'd was ordained
at Conception, Mo., on May 19th,
1898, and read his first mass on
May 29th of the same year. He
came to Cottonwood on January
14th, 1915, as successor to Rev.
Father Odilo, O. S. B., and has
served this parish as pastor con
tinuously since that date and
during his stay hei-e has en
deared himself to his parishon
ers as well as to membei-s of the
Protestant faith. Had the wishes
of the reverend father been ob
served there would have been
no public observance of this im
portant milestone in his religious
life, but his superior declared
otherwise and, according to exis
tom, the celebration was post
poned to the great feast of Cor
pus Christi, at which time the
institution of the Hcly Sacra
ment of the Altai- is solemnly
celebrated by the Catholic
church, as a fitting occasion to
celebrate his anniversary. Tie
was joined in the solemnity by
ah of his confreres from the
monastery, which assistance al
lowed the feast to become one of
the most impxessive ceremonies
we have ever had the privilege
to witness. There were three
holy masses with compliance
fx-om the members of the con
gregation who joined their pas
tor in thanksgiving for the
graces i'eceived.
Very Rev. Father Paul, O. S.
B., delivered the festival ser
mon. High mass was celebrat
ed by the jubilarian, assisted by
Rev. Father Jex-ome, O. S. B.,
Deacon, and Rev. Father Boni
face, O. S. B., as sub-Deacon and
Rev. Father Michael, O. S. B„ as
Master of Ceremonies. At this
occasion the celebrant wore the
costly vestment with which his
parishoners had presented him
on the real anniversary day—
May 29th.

During the services those
present marched in solemn pro
cession from the church to the
front porch of the parsonage,
where an altar had been erected,
and here holy benediction was
administered. This is the second
occasion of the kind celebrated
within the history of the church
in Cottonwood and will be long
remembered by all present.
The weather report for the
month of May, as recorded at
the Monastery west of town,
shows a total rainfall of 4 inches
for the month, which is almost
twice the normal precipitation.
Rain fell on twenty d^ys during
the past month.

bucking contests, steer roping,
riding and tieing contests, base
ball games, and small sports
will occupy each afternoon and
a big dance will be held after
noon and evening in the monster
