Memorial Day Programme.
The sacred duty of honoring the mem
ory of our dead comrades is again upon us.
Let it not be said that the Grand Army
of the Republic is oblivious to the trust
imposed upon it by the rules and regula
tions of our order which declares one of
its objects to be to perpetuate the memo
ry and history of the dead. It is the
duty of surviving comrades to hold their
memory sacred and with our solemnly
impressive ceremonies at their graves on
memorial day, the 30th of May, teach the
youth of the land that he who dies for
his country gives up his life in the most
noble cause, and that his memory will be
cherished and revered as long as this
republic shall exist.
All citizens who appreciate and are
grateful for the blessings that we are
permitted to enjoy on account of the
sacrifices of our fallen comrades are in
vited to join with us on this solemn oc
casion. The G. A. R., Womaus Relief
Corps, Sons of Veterans and all honorably
discharged union soldiers are requested
to meet at the G. A. R. hall promptly at
one o'clock May 30th, from which place
we will march, at lT to the cemetery
in the- following order: Post band in
front, McConihie post G. A. R. and other
old soldiers who choose to join us, the

Relief Corps ie wagons, the orator of the
day, judge Chapman; Glee Club, citizens.
At the cemetery' the Grand Army
