Hinds Cntnp nnd loyal citizens ol' Hyde Park nad Ivden, once more in the month of llowcrs, beautiful May, vc are called to relleet upon the past; our thoughts go back to '61, when was in augurated a civil war. For nearly five years the struggle for supremacy continued until thousands of our young men had sacrificed their lives for the support ol" union aud liber ty. When t'ae curse of slavery had ljeen swept from our land and the bondman was tree, those who had fought so jioblv for right principles returned home and became soldier citizens, once more to settle into the routine of civil life. We say they were young men; they were yottng in years, but what u change had been wrought 1 Mere boys had become men of experience, weakened by disease and wounds sustained in battle and contracted in prison-pens. But how quick the (light of time! Thirty years has brought another chunge. Many have answered to the last roll call nnd arc now sleeping in the silent camping ground of the dead, gone from sight but not forgotten. Comrades, once more we are culled to perform one more duty to decorate the graves of our honored dead ; once more we are called to scatter floral tributes. Let the tender, fraternal love for which thev stand endure until the touch of death shall still the warm pulse bent.
