herself in a perfect manner to the

"I notice in speaking of eeme

are called cemeteries, while one i
on the north side is u burying
ground. Why is not that a ceme
The editor replies by saying that
unquestionably if is a cemetery, also
that the Soutlishle and Catholic are
burying grounds, Because of the
antiquity, however, of the yard on
the northside, it seems very appliea-'
hie to speak of it as “the North bury
