Tribute to th iHfioory of Our Oallant Solli" lHl. May IJOth of e:ich recurring year and the Sunday pm't'diii"; are days that will ever be observed so long as time shall last, because the memories of the deeds of valor ami heroism that hallow these days is lu in instilled into the life of the rising generation and they will faithfully observe them after the fathers who fought for the principles of liberty and union have passed away. A union memorial service, was held in the Opera House Sunday morning at 1 0:30 o'clock and it called out a very largo audience. Dan S. Hoot Host and the, W. It. C. occupied seats in front to the number of 1(H) or more. The sing ing was conducted hy members of tho Haptist choir with Mrs. J. H. Clemens presiding at the piano. Uov. H. V. t'hild read the scripture and Hov. C). J. (lolden made a fervent prayer. Tho address was given by Hev. W. L. M linger and was an excellent effort and showed that the speaker had given the subject much thought and careful study. It was listened to with marked attention and many complimentary words were given hy the old soldiers in praise of the sermon. Decoration Day was as bright and beautiful as heart could wish for and business generally wiw suspended. The factories were all closed to irlve the employees a holiday which was fully appreciated hy tho large number of laborers in the city. Tho G. A. H. hall on Hroass street was profusely decorated with bunting and the stars and stripes. At IDJ) o'clock the Grand Army boys and members of the Woman's Helief Corps under command of Major Frank 11. Chase tho com mander, entered the hall which was ilready well Jilled with citizens and visitors from out of the city. After reading general orders tho male quartette composed of C.M.Kings- ey, ILL. VanUenschoten, JoeT.Herry tnd Walter Hutchinson sang a few selections. Lincoln's Gettysburg speech was read by Major Chase and Hev. 11. V. Child offered prayer. Mr. Chase introduced George 11. Nichols of Ionia who gave the address, and al though ho was not in the best of health md spirits on account of his eyes troub ling him it was full of patriotism and excellent thoughts. He eulogized the honored dead and gave tho comrades living many wordsof praise for the part they took in the great struggle for human liberty and of their devotion in commemorating their heoric deeds on the battlefield and of showing rever- utce to tho departed. lie spoke of the present crisis with Spain as being a war waged by the United States itt the interests of humanity and that there would bo no lack of loyalty to the old flag and a quick response to the call for the suppression of tyranny tnd injustice. At he close of the speech the ceme teries in the city were- visited by the old veterans and many citizens who made the usual floral offerings on the graves of those who are at rest. After dinner at the post room which was served to the old soldiers and their wives and friends, the Otisco and Smyrna cemeteries were visited and the graves of the' comrades who lie beneath the green sward were covered with flowers. 1'rint paper has taken an advance of one-half cent per pound since the war ommenced. The advance is partially caused by the great demand among newspapers for extra war editions, and most of the mills are working double time. And this is not the worst fea ture, for it is predicted that it will advance to double the price asked a few months ago. The margin for profit at a dollar a year was small enough lefore, and it either means one of three thin's: Tho dollar paper must do away with the credit system absolutely, go back to the $1M rate, or close up shop and quit business en tirely. Game Warden Osborn has notified his deputies that tho law forbidding the catching of fish in tho inland lakes tnd streams bv anv other means than hook and line after the first of April must bo rigidly enforced. There nro persons who have no regard for law so ong as their own personal conven iences are appeased and tho deputies are urged to enforce the law to its fullest extent. Those who now fish nlawfully do so at their peril. No one should forget the Field Day exercises next week, given by tho scholars of the hiirh school.

LADIES' LITERARY EXCHANGE. The I'lofting of a V-ry rieimunt und Suc cessful Ycnr'i Work. The Ladies' Literary Exchange Cluh closed their year's study last Thursday. As tho calendar announced, It was president!) day. Mrs. Henry Hill hud invited the ladies with their husbands to her home and Fales' bus and other conveyances took them there. . After the happy meeting and cordial greetings of the family with the club and other guests assembled, tho pres ident, Mrs. Hairy Lamb, called the meeting to order. Holl call was re sponded toby miscellaneousquotations. After the business of the meeting was finished the president gave her paper, "A comparison between the opening uf the century and its close.'' The paper showed the improvements along scien tific lines, was well delivered, showed much study and thought, and was worthy of being presented before any audience. This paper was the main feature! of the work for tho afternoon; this being our closing day, It was a holiday as well. The pr esident thanked the ladies for assistance rendered her during the past and all realized that nothing but kindly feeling and mutual good will prevailed. Mrs. Z. W. Gooding, In behalf of the members of the club, thanked the president for her work forx the club, for the interest she had taken In each member, and for her faithfulness as presiding officer. Also, in behalf of the club, she presented tho president with a book as a token of their respect and esteem. The book given was, The excursions of an evolutionist," by John Fisk. It was as tho ladies had desired, a surprise to her. She said it was not necessary for the members to give any token of remembrance but that she should prize the present highly. The meeting adjourned until the opening of the club year in September. The guests were finely entertained until tea was announced and a fine re past was served. Hare specimens of the vegetable garden were brought on as the last course, in tho heart of which was found work for the head Instead of tho digestive organs, when merriment and humor prevailed. A most enjoyable time was had and the afternoon passed all too quickly. , THE SPANISH "CAI'K VKKDK" FLEET. The center of interest iu the present war is quickly shifted. One week it lies off the south coast of Florida as our bloeaulng Meet moves to the in vestment of Cuba; the next week it is found off the coast of Africa, where we see tho Cape Verde fleet gathered for its long voyage to the relief of the Spanish army; then it flies to the an tipodes and we watch the fateful con flict of Manilla; and before we have had time to estimate the full value of the victory, the startling news comes that the Cape Verde fleet, which was supposed to be at Cadiz, is in tho West Indies, replenishing its bunkers and getting otherwise ready for its cam paign of diversion and relief of tho blockaded island of Cuba. Unless it is sunk or captured by our squadrons, tho Cape Verde fleet is likely to fill a large page in the record of the Spanish-American war, for it happens to combine several qualities which are essential to successful fleet maneuvers. In the first place it is homogeneous, three of the armored ships being sister vessels and tho fourth so nearly like them that, for tactical maneuvering purposes, the four ships are identical. The three torpedo boat destroyers are also identical In arma ment und general design, two of them being of -8 knots speed and one of 30 knots. The similarity in tho ships is of great value in enabling the fleet as a whole to steam at any desired speed or move in any desired formation, in stead of the faster ships having to wait for some slower vessels or tho more powerful having to shield the weaker units when forming the Hue of battle. The disposition, are of training and power of tho batteries being almost identical in all the ships, a fighting position which is tho best for one ship Is the best for all the fleet. It is a well recognized fact in naval warfare that this homogeneity in a fleet is In itself a considerable source of strength, just as a fleet made up of ships of miscel laneous types and having various speeds must accommodate itself to the slowest and weakest units or permit them to be destroyed piecemeal by the enemy. rSclentlfic American.

Fruit growers say the prospect for a largo yield of all kinds of fruit this season is very flattering. The peach crop, especially, gives fine promise. If Spain had a Christopher Colum bus today, she would send him out to discover some place whero tho Spanish navy, army and government would be safe. Tho postmasters at Stanton, Lake view and Howard City have received notico that their salaries will be raised $100 for tho next fiscal year, beginning July 1. "What is tho first commandment?' asked a Greenville Sunday school teacher of her young hopefuls, and the reply nearly floored her. "Hemember the Maine," was what a youngster re sponded. Mary had a Hilly goat, its tail is sort of bent, and everywhere that Mary goes the goat is sure to went.

Thero if a bachelor refuses a bona-flde offer of marriage he must show that ho has sufficient reasons for declining it, or pay $.'00 into the state treasury. It is safe to say that L. W.
