MEMOEfdiL DAY EXERCISES.
320 Pf,5tfons Join in the March to
Tlierday dawned cloundy and there was
every indication of having a bad day of
it, but the rain held off and made it one
of tiie most pleasant, days for a celebra
tion that could possibly have been. The
program was carried out to the letter,
tit 2 o'clock p. m. the G. A. R„ W. R. C..
W. C. T. U., A, O. U. W., S. of V. and
Sunday school societies, formed in line
of procession in front of the court house
and marched to the school house led by
the Onida Cornet band, where the oration
of the day was delivered bv Rev. Rayson,
of Blunt, which was eloquent and appro
priate to the occasion. The prayer was
led by Rev. DeGolier. After fulfiling the
program in the school house the proces
sion formed in line again to take up the
march to the cemetery with the band in
the lead the Sunday school and school
children, second A. O. U. W., third W.
R. C., fourth S. of V., fifth G. A. R.,
sixth and citizens and teams in the rear.
Immediately after leaving Broadway the
line was cailed to a halt and Thos. Schrei
ber, a photographer of Milford township,
brought his instrument to bear upon and
photographed the procession which con
tained over :s00 persons on foot besides a
number in wngons and buggies. After
the procession was photographed they
again took up the march to the cemetery.
On arriving at the cemetery the column
separated and the G. A. R. marched be
tween and honored the unknown dead.
Then the march was taken up again and
flowers were strewn on the graves not
only on the graves of those who fought
for the flag and preserved the union, but,
those who had battles with the strife of
this wicked world. After fulfilling
the usual program in the cemetery the
line of march was formed again and were
marched back to town and in front of the
court house and were dismissed by the
marshal of the day, J. F. Cole.
Thus ended the exercises of the largest
