A IIAY OF NATIONAL SORROW.
Oruvrit of Heroic? lad Oijrlanded
'I ho day more sat red, if possible, to
p.iWiotie Americans than InUcpen
tlt n-e day, wa duly celebrate' 1 in this
city Saturday. Tim darkening clouds
which hunpr low in the west at early
morn, norUMiuin rain, sneu .
tears on the ra.-y mounds of. the
sainted dead, though they were
quickly kissd away by the kindly
sua and a xoft breeze that carao
up from the southland freighted
with odo.ri of buds and flowers
of Sjirintime. When the dark
el.-uds had passed the blue
canopy overhead, with here and these
a cloud in fantastic f n in, and the clean
swe.H zephyi s thai rustled the leaves
of ihe stately trees, stooping to whisp
er vernal melodies to the wild (lowers
and pr.iss.-s, that nodded in pretty re
cognition, all went to make up an
ideal day in May.
Crowds of peou'ie came in on every
train until the streets were Oiled to
overflowing. The Grand Army boys
invited the Modern Woodmen in to
help commemorate and render homage
to their comrades who had fallen in
the great cause of union and univeral
freedom and the order responded
nobly. Uavelock, with the B. & M.
band, had a large t eprosentation, while
Union, Murray, Cedar Creek and
I'lattsmouth swelled the list far be
yond expectation. .
At 1:150 the splendid procession con
sisting of over 800 men on foot took up
its lino of march to the cemetery
w hich kept step to the inspiring music
of the 1J. it M. and Plattsmouth cor
net barn's. S. 1 Ilolloway, mounted
on a black charger, was the efficient
marshal of the day, while D. Ii. Smith
made a nice appearance as marshal
for the long line of Woodmen, who
with their axel and other emblems,
made an imposing lino of march. The
W. K. C. mid (i. A. H. followed tho
Woodmen and after them came a long
line of citizens in carriages.
Ilev. O. M. CoutTer delivered an elo
quent and timely address the best ever
heard here and after some good music.
Eider Youtzy gave a brief address
which was thoughtful and patriotic.
Tho W. U. C. then engaged in their
ritualistic service over the graves of
unknown dead, after which the G. A.
H. held their service. Tho graves of
their departed comrades was then
decked with fragrant (lowers by tho
kind hands who had carried a musket
at the front and who knew the unspeak
able privations of soldier life. Tho
cemetery iever looked so beautiful as
it did last Saturday. Tho endless
quantities of roses and other flowers
eeemed" more ierfeet, and brighter
than ever before.
It was a touching sight to seo the
gray-haired veterans with trembling
hands and faltering steps stoop to lay
tho (loral embleni3 of love and rever
ence on the groen mounds of those who
had gone to the great beyond, and wo
could but wonder how miwy'bf the gal
lant remnant of the once great army
would be with us a year hence to
again perform tho tender tribute that
was bein? shown today.
It was nearly. 5 o'clock before the
services were entirely concluded, and
those who witnessed the ceremonies
and the march to tho cemetery must
bo of stony mould not to have been
impressed with the lesson of patriotism
and broad humanity which it taught.
A Keiucily I or LuvuitU.
L.. C. Pollard has a remedy for
locusts that orchardists should adopt
without delay if they do not want to
take chances on losing their trees.
lie turned several head of hog's into
his orchard, and each morning he
shakes the trees and the shower of
locusts that fall to tho ground aro
voraciously eaten by tho hogs. The
hogs soon learn to follow from tree to
tr ee. They undoubted ly oat many of
them as they come out of tho ground.
The w "Elkhorn."
Henry Millor ha3 opened up an
elegant saloon at tho old Elkhorn
quarters. Everything is bright and
new and no expense will bo spared to
furnish the purest and best goods that
are made. Mr. Miller is very popular
and -his host of friends wish him well
in his handsome quarters.
The w I'iot.
lioad master O'Donnell is in the city
today gathering up material to go to
work on the new yards. The ties
came in Saturday and every thing is
expected to bo in readiness for work to
begin by Wednesday morning.
An InterestliiB Texan Letter.
San Axto.via, Tex., May 27. I
have been requested by several of my
northern friends to give adeseription
of San Antonia, Tex., so I will en
deavor to describe it to tho best of my
ability. The south is certainly a won
derful conntry. I do not think San
Antonia can bo matched by any south
ern city. "It has a mixed population
of OO.ooO inhabitants, consisting of
Americans, Germans, Mexicans and
Negroes. Tho southern poople are
noted for their great hospitality. The
Ittacos of interest aro quite numerous,
and a great many historic buildings
may be found here. The Alimo is of
the greatest imiortaneo. The Taxas
revolution of 18.".G was fought there,
and its citizens were massacred. The
building is situated on one of the prin
ciual squares. There was a garrison
of 1 50 men, led by Ctrl. David Crockett.
They were surrounded by one thous
and Mexicans, and after a horoic re
sistance, were all killed. About two
miles drive from tho city are situated
the Three Missions. The first is Mis
sion Conception, and was built over
two hundred years ago by tho Indians.
It has kept its preservation miracu
ously, and is just beginning to show
its age. 5an Juan, tho second mis
sion, is partly in ruins, and one side is
covered with moss and grass, which
makes it look picturesque. There aro
also some very handsome carvings on
its walls. This was also built by the
Indians. Escapoda, or third mission,
is entirely in ruins. Near tho main
plaza is the quaint-old mission tower
of San Fernando, whose walls are cov
ered with many ancient carvings. San
Antonia has ten churches, three of
which arc very massive buildings, Tho
plazas in ancient times were immense
squares in the heart of the city, but
they have been laid out into small
parks, like you see in a great many
northern cities. The parks are kept
in fine shape, with flowers and shrub
bery the entire year. There are five
specimens of troes which aro indigen
ous to Texas, which you will not lind
in tho Nebraska forest: the wesatchea,
pecans, bounona, mosquito and lig
trees. Fruits and vegetables of every
description, through tho whole year.
We have the prettiest flowers during
the months of March and April. The
business blocks i-re very handsome
tnotly white marblo and red granite.
Tho arcnitecture and carvings on the
buildings aro very lino, but do not
compare in hight to our northern
buildings. The San Antonia "river
curves around the city and grand trees
le in over the water, and entwine their
branches together from tho other side.
Along tho river tropical plants dip
their, glossy leaves into tho mater.
From the bridges that span tho river
at tho central gardens and Navarra
street, ono may step from the busy
hum of commerce and in a second be
transported to a scene of idj'Iic loveli
ness. ' I almost forgot to mention tho mili
tary post. It is ono of tho groat at
tractions of the city. It is undoubt
edly the finest in the south. The
buildings are spotless wnite, very
spacious with most beautiful scenery.
The soldiers drill three times weekly,
which are witnessed by largo crowds.
San Antonia has somo line residences.
Mr. Yorkness' home on Dwyer avenue
is one of tho handsomest in the city. It
contains a sample of every stone
known in Texas.
The Express newspaper building is
also worthy of mention. It occupies a
commanding position and as a work of
artistic architecture it is a credit as
well as ornament to any city. It takes a
visit here to realize that we have every
reason to entertain a very lively ad
miration and respect for the historic
city which is in the front in the busi
ness lino and ono of the most flourish
ing of the many enterprising cities of
Texas. Miss UEUL.AH ELSON.
