SEQUACHEE, TENN., THURSDAY, JUNE 8, 1909. NO. 48. 5 i ' f i . i 1? I, j 3: J. 1: n rv c MEMORIAL DAY Its Observance by the Veterans of the Q. A. R. Monday was observed as Memorial or Decoration Day by the old soldiers, although the 80th, Decoration Day proper, fell on tbe d;iy previous. The day opened with a decidedly tearful aspect, and it seemed as if the elements were determined to keep the old soldiers from observing the day with the decoration of graves aud the proper exercises. However, the rains ceased, 'and the G. A. R. veterans, many of whom had journeyed long dis tances to attend the occasion, gathered together at 10:30 a. in. for their cus tomary special meeting, John D. Oof felt, of Jasper, was elected a comrade. Atl:30p. in., the Post formed in line in front of the News office, and escorted by children bearing flags and flowers, proceeded to Owen cemetery, where the graves of soldiers were dec orated, the customary ritual of the Q. A. R. being followed, after which the line returned to the Town Hall, where the following program was carried out : Song, "America," Song. "Land of Liberty," Address Maj. T. K. Hill, Commander of Post Ritual, Reading, t "A Soldier's Grave," Miss Ava Lankester, 'Sone. "Our Patriot Dead," Choir Lincoln's Words at Gettysburg, Miss Grace Thomas Song, "The Old Guard and the New," Choir, Address, Rev. W. D. Dew Song, "Star-Spangled Banner," Choir The address of the day was to have been delivered by Hon. Joe E. Brown, of Chattanooga, but he was unable to. be present, in which the old soldiers were greatly disappointed. However. Rev. W. D. Dew was equal to the emergency, and delivered an address that was ' appreciated. His "ddress was not a repetition of his sermon of Sunday, but branched out into new lines of thought. The singing , of the special choir about the sftnie as that of the day pre vious, but augmented by the presence of Mr. Warren, of Chattanooga, tenor, and Mrs. Lankester of Pensacola, Fla,, was a trlump In singing and many 'en-'" t'oiiiiqniB were passed. The addition of these two were of great help to the lo cal singers, Mrs. Lankester's alto be ing especially helpful, 'fs the choir was destitute of an alto. Mr. Warren will be remembered as accompanying the Perry Bros., of Chattanooga, in their tour of the valley last summer, aud sings a good tenor. Benediction was impressively pro nounced by Dr. Dew and closed the ex ercises of the day, after which the Post treated the choir and those who assist ed in the program to ice cream accord ing to their usual custom. The sales of cream amounted to $ 4 and the expenses to if.S.34, leaving a balance of 6(ic, which will be added to the fund being accumulated to place suitable foundation under the ball. The day was greatly enjoyed by all, although starting off unfavorably, and the veterans all departed for their homes, promising themselves a grand reunion here Sept. 11, the date select ed. The roster of the comrades present is as follows: Sam McWilliams, Geo. W. Heard, and Lewis Carlton, of Dunlap. J. G. Lankester, W. A. Pryor, Lot Warren, Ed Forrester, W. L. Brewer, John Shadrick, of Jasper. W. F. Smith, of Gruetli. T. R. Harris, Wiley Parker, G. H Wiseman, Austin Conpinger, T. H. -Hill,; Dallas Dixon, of Sequachee.

On Sunday at 2 p. m. the members of Post 53, the local iost of the G. A. R., attended divine service at Owen Church, hearing a most learned and eloquent sermon fall from the lips of Dr. Dew. A special ohoir offered mus ic for the occasion, the members being Misses Louise Hill, Nina Randle, True Randle, Mrs. Dew, Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Hill, Walter Randle, Miss Grace Thomas, organist. The service was opened by singing the national anthem,' "America," af ter which Dr. Dew read the 47th chap ter of Isaiah. The song, No. . 33, "Higher Ground," was then sung,,af ter which Dr. Dew offered a fervent prayer for peace and freedom from the horrors of war. The beautiful song, "Onward Christian Soldiers" was then sung, after which Dr. Dew delivered a fine and highly instructive discourse, digging much into the antiquities of the past regarding war, and finished with a strong plea for peace. Through out his discourse he held the attention of his hearers centered on his thoughts as they were successively presented, aud some were deeply moved as be spoke of the beautiful symbolism of decorating the graves of loved ones gone before. The hymn, No. 191, "God of Our Fathers," was then sung by the choir, and then Major Hill, commander of the Post, rose to make such remarks as were proper from one occupying his position. He spoke of the aims and objects of the G. A. R and said their mission was not to keep alive hostility, but rather for peace and union. His address like that of Dr. Dew was heard with attention. Song, No. 88, "Wonderful Peace," with benediction by Dr. Dew closed the exercises. It was an interesting service and well attended. One of the qualifications of membership to the G. A. R. is that its members belong to some religious denomination, and it is a custom of the order to attend divine service at some church on Sunday pre ceeding Decoration Day. SONTHERN STEEL IS FREE Reorganization May Now Be Completed. NEW YORK, June l.-Vice Chan cellor Garrison, of Jersey City, today refused to grant an injunction re straining the reorganization committee of the Southern Steel company from proceeding with the organization of the Southern Iron and Steel company. The court dismissed the order to show cause, which was obtained by Harri son H. Schuler, a minority stockhold er. The Soutern Steel company is an Al abama corporation, and was run inde pendently of the steel trust. The 11107 panic put it in the bankruptcy court and, to yljust its affairs, the reorgan ization committee, comprising the holders of the $3,000,000 first mortgage bonds, was appointed. A plan was formulated for organizing a new cor poration to be known as the Southern Iron and Steel company. A majority of the stockholders approved the plan and the company was incorporated un der the laws of New Jersey with a cap ital of $'27,0(10,000 to take over the as sets of the old concern. The plan may now proceed. The Parade. Too much cannot be said of the MIGHTY HAAG RAILROAD SHOWS parade which takes place daily on the public streets free for everybody and is one mile in length and introducing features never attempted by any other show for their street pagament. No parade is complete without a caliope and Mr. Haag has spared no pains or expense in this everlasting feature of the parade. Not only have the Haag shows one of the finest calio"pes in the world but have been fortunate enough to secure the service of Signor Ham ont, who is considered the premier of caliope players and will not only glad den the hearts of the children but ev erybody as well, with his up-to-date selections.

R. at Owen Church Sunday, Laurel Lodge, No. 98, of the K. of P. fraternity, of Whitwell, began the exercises observed in decorating the graves of deceased brothers, and afterwards decorated the grave of Marion D. Moss in the ceme tery adjoining. The members or tne lodge were stationed on the plattorm, after which D. T. Layne conducted the ritual, being answered by the various parties delegated to respond. Dr. Shirley was then introduced, who side-tracked an address that- undoubt edly must have been good, to speak on ly eight minutes. Dr. Shirley follow ed him with a somewhat longer but excellent address. Both speakers ex uressed their ideas clearly and distinct ly, portraying Pythianism and Pythian sentiment. By request of Jas. Price, who seemed to have the musical part of the program in charge, the Sequa chee choir gave two selections at the appointed places in the exercises, after which the lodge proceeded to tne cem etery adjoining, bearing flowers to de posit on the grave of their brother, Marion D. Moss. At the grave the reading of the ritual was finished by D. T. Layne, and prayer offered by Jas. Price, after which the members of the lodcre silently laid beautiful bunches of flowers upon the grave in profusion This closed the exercises. Immediately after the ceremony of decoration the members of the lodge were photographed by Rapier, as they were arranged in front of the church. The exercises were carried ou with ceremony, the responses were delivered from memory, and the lodge bore itself with the dignity due such an impress ive occasion.. Monteagle.

Alvin Spears' mighty sluggers from Ridaedale. were here Saturday and played the locals an interesting game, The contest was close throughout, and neither side could claim any advan tage. The Lewis brothers from Jasper, formed the batterv for the Ridgedales, and ma ex(.eiient work in keenincr the Soquachians from batting the ball hard at critical times. Rideedale also se ouretl tha two double plays made, the jocia developing some stupid baseruu ning. Barrett pitched eight of the nine in nings for Sequachee and while not pro fessing to be a league pitcher, did well. Alton acted on the receiving end. In the last half of the eighth, Sequachee was three runs to the bad. Hill, the first up, was hit by the ball, and went to first, stealing second, and third. Daffron hit safely and brought him in. Alton singled and brought Daffron to third. Curtis singled, bringing in Daffron, and Alton scored on a hit by Houts, tying the score. Barrett, DeSabla and Deakin9 went out in succession. Neither side scored in the 9th, and tbe game was left a tie. Houts pitched in the first half of ninth, aud retired the Ridgedales on eleven delivered balls.

A series of lectures have been given at the schoolhouse this week commenc ing Monday night, by Rev. Fr. Robt. A. Skinner, of Winchester, Tenn., a member of the Paulist Order. His subject Monday night was "The Div inity of Christ," and was heard with attention by a large audience. Tues day night he spoke on "Reading the Bible," and last night his subject was "The True Church." Tonight he will speak ou tbe "Lord's Supper," and to morrow night on "Confession. " . These lectures have been a decided innovation in this community, the majority of those attending never hav ing heard the doctrines of Catholicism explained. Father Skinner talks in clear phrase, making no attempt at oratory, but giving the fundamental doctrines of the church in a terse and lucid style. He is abundantly sup plied with both historical and biblical references to prove his points, and the Question Box feature, whereby he an swers questions propounded to him in writing, is an interesting feature and causes much comment. Nothing Doing. The lightning rod agent stopped before the farmhouse and addreswed the old man who was sitting in the door way sharpening his jack-knife. Anything doing in my line today, sir?" he asked. "I dunno, what's yer line':4" asked the farmer. "Lightning rods, said the agent. What good be they?" demanded the farmer. "They'll gave your house from ketchin' fire if it's struck," explained the agent hopefully. , "Git out of here, gol dern ye!" cried the farmer wrathfully. I bin payin' seven dollars a year insurance on this here shack of mine fer the last teu years, and nothin's happened yet. My luck's bad enough as it is with out your adding to it your pesky old fandangoes. How in heck d'ye think I'll ever get my money back with one o' them things around." Judge.
