HONOR THE SOLDIER DEAD.
Ideal weather was permitted for
Memorial and Decoration days and the
spirit of the time was manifest in the
general observance. Another mile
stone has been marked olf and the
ranks of the old soldiers are thinning,
but the enthusiasm of those left is still
as great and the zeal and pride that
they take in preparing for and honor
ing this time set apart for commemor
ating the years of civil war and re
membering those who fell, is still un
diminished. Sunday morning at 10:30 our little
band of old soldiers, who are Charles
Montney, Miles Simmons, Timothy
Caster, .1. P. Losey, V illiam .J. Moore,
Hugh Moore, Elmore Putney, Michael
Sheehy, Thomas Thody, (Jeorge Craw
ford, George W. White, James Bolls
and H. A. Cope marched to the M. E.
church and took seats reserved for
thm. The church was nicely decorat
ed with Hags and llowers. An appro
priate sermon was preached by Kev.
Oliver Vake, of Lexington, himself a
veteran, to a large audience. The choir
rendered special music aud Jean Drake
sang a beautiful solo. In the evening
the veterans met again in the Presby
terian church where with a large con
gregation they listened to an excellent
sermon by Bev. P. II. Case.
Monday morning dawned beautifully
fair and warm and many Hags were
Hung to the breeze from residences and
business places. The pupils of the
schools collected and headed by the
band and the old soldiers and followed
by many citizens, all proceeded to the
cemetery where the graves were decor
ated with llowers and the usual ser
vices were performed.
At two p. m. Central Hall was throng
ed to listen to a well prepared program.
J. E. Beavis presided as chairman.
After the singing of America and in
vocation the program as published in
last week's paper, arranged a little dif
ferently, was gone through, much to the
satisfaction and appreciation of the
audience. Two addresses were then
given, one by Father Cullinaue, whose
speaking is always well liked by Yale
people, and the other by the veteran
who had preached the memorial ser
aon on Sunday.
. At the close the benediction was pro
nounced by Father Cullinane and the
services of Decoration day for 1WW
