The custom of decorating the graves of the soldiers who lost their lives in wars of the United States originated during the civil war, at first by villages and local societies, then by counties and later states edoptcd the custom, until fi nally through the co-oporation of the president and the governors of the various states, a day was set aside by common consent on which the people gather and pLce flowers upon the graves of the dead and engage in other acts in memory of those who risked their lives in de fense of home and country. May 30th is the day set apart for this beautiful and appropriate custom. In this part of the country the graves of all soldiers are decorated the gray and the blue alike. Lodges and societies of various kinds en gage in these ceremonies, in fact most every body takes time to place a flower and frequently drop a tear upon the grave of a loved one who has gone to the great be yond. For several years past the survivors of the dvil war have gathered at the cemeteries of this neighborhood to decorate the graves of the blue and the gray. No dis tinction is shown and it forms a partfatic scene to observe,the aged survivors of a fiecre struggle, of half century ago as they mingle to honor the memory of their dead. It seems good and very appropri ate that we observe the 30th day of this month in memory of the dead.
