IA Vail.] ODAY your choicest flower* you bring In honor of the brave Your choicest hymns of praise you sing Around each hero's grave. But what of those who darkly sleep Where mourners never come? Shall none their hapless fortunes weep, And shall their praise be dumb? Until the sea shall render back The muster of her dead Your loving scrolls of fame must lack Full many a heart that bled, And still In many a hidden spot, 3y vines and grass o'ergrown, Unnoted heroes lie forgot, Their place of rest unknown. Yet grieve not that you may not dress Such graves with fitting art While nature has the will to bless a And play the mourner's part. She gave them life and courage high, And since they bravely bled She lets no wandering wind go by But mourns the hero dead. The solemn dirges of the deep Have lulled her sons to rest. She soothed them to untroubled sleep Upon her loving breast. And even the humblest weed that blows Where sleep the true and brave Can peer the lily or the rose On any honored grave.

Large Number of I. O. O. F. Visitors. Last Friday evening's B. & M. train from the north brought about250 visit ing I. O. O. F. and Rebekah people from Lead City, where they had been attending the grand lodge. About nine o'clock in the evening a large proportion of the visitors were as sembled about the verandas of the Evans, where C. S. Eastman as acting mayor (Mayor Stewart being indis posed) presented the visitors with two large keys, which he declared were to open the city to them fully and freely. Mr. Eastman's welcoming remarks were happily responded to by Harvey J. Rice in behalf of the Odd Fellows, and by Mrs. Ella Kingery, on behalf of the Rebekahs. There was music upon the Evans veranda for those who de sired to dance, while others sat about in social intercourse, thus passing away the evening very pleasantly. Next day most of the visitors went to Wind Cave, greatly enjoying the trip. Sat urday evening the local Odd Fellows and Rebekahs gave a delightful recep tion to the visitors at their hall, which was very much enjoyed by all. Sun day the day was spent as the inclina tions of the visitors directed, many at tending memorial services at the Pres byterian church. At four o'clock the special Elkhorn train of eight sleepers and coaches was made up and pulled out for Sioux City, which place wo understand was reached the next morning about eight o'clock—a fine, quick journey indeed. Jake Gable, the omnipresent and ever-genial travelling passenger agent for the Elkhorn was with the party from the time they left Sioux City until their return and made the trip the more enjoyable by his presence. The excursionists spoke in glowing terms of the delights of their visit at Lead, to Spearfish, and down through the center of the scenic Hills. Their short stay here was also one of the happiest events of their excursion, all greatly enjoying Wind Cave, the plunge bafhs, and the beauty of the surroundings here, returning to their homes charmed with the Hills.

Note not what change Time's finger brings Note not if ranks are incomplete. The present fades, the past up springs— The "boys" are marching down the street! Hats off, hats off, on either side! And form a living lane of love Through which they tread, all glori fied, Their banner streaming brave above. Who recks how cautious is the pace? Who recks how lagging are the feet? Bright deeds illume each wrinkled face— The "boys" are marching down the street! Hats off! That tattered flag you see With rents in every treasured fold Wakes oft to mem'ry's reveille And never, aye, is never old. The stars that stud its field of blue A thousand stories can repeat, Which, told again, are ever new— The "boys" are marching down the street! Hats off, hats off! The gray and lame Are now no longer lame and gray, But feel once more youth's sturdy frame And breathe the fires of yesterday. In bays reclad, to pride reborn, Defying dust and miles and heat, Mid cheers and tears this splendid morn The "boys" are marching down the street! EDWIN L. SABIN. Steers Wanted.
