Memorial Day.
Again have the living paid their an
nual debt of gratitude and love t'o the
memory of the dead , and another Me
morial day , with all its cherished mem
ories , has passed into history. The day ,
as to weather , was ideal , and the cele
bration in keeping with the day.
About ten o'clock in the morning , the
comrades of the post and the ladies of
the circle assembled in the Odd Fellows
hull , where the floral , tributes had been
gathered , and proceeded to the cemeter
ies to bedeck with fair garlands the
graves of the departed veterans. The
services were according to the solemn
and impressive and beautiful ritual of
the Grand Army of the Republic. The
following graves were decorated in
Charles E. Fox , R S. Cooley ,
Chester Walker , Marion B. Brown ,
Moses Huttershull , Peter Groves ,
John D. Gerver , Daniel A. Clements ,
John B. McCabe , David Keithly ,
Smith Gordon Elias H. Conrad ,
William M. Irwiu.
Thomas B.Walker , C. Luther Nettleton.
At Lougview cemetery the grave of a
Confederate soldier , Robert R. Stewart ,
of Albert Hamilton , a son of a veteran ,
J. G. Hamilton of Brookhaven , Miss. ,
and of other dead of soldier families were
also decorated ; and at Riverview ceme
tery the same programme was carried
out , besides the decoration of the splen
did monument to the unknown dead.
The list is swelled , this year , by the
death of William M. Irwin , making fif
teen Union soldiers now buried in the
cemeteries of this city.
At the conclusion of this tender and
beautiful ceremony , the procession re
turned to the city and disbanded until
after dinner , when the members of the
post and circle , together with the people
generally , crowded the Methodist church
to overflowing to hear the regular pro
gramme prepared for the afternoon. Dr.
A. P. Welles presided. The following
\ programme was rendered :
Voluntary March Miss Blanche McCarl
Song Quartette
Prayer Kev. W. J. Turner
Reading orders J. II. Yarger

Reading Lincoln's Address at Gettysburg

Address to the Unknown Dead. . ] . A. Wilcox
Song Quartette
Addresses. . Revs. J. W. Walker , W. J. Turner
Song "Ameiica" Congregation
Benediction Rev. J. W. Walker
There was some disappointment over
the failure of the announced speaker of
the occasion to be present , but Revs. J.
W. Walker and W. J. Turner substituted
very satisfactorily with patriotic utter
ances of an extemporaneous nature.
Not a Field-Day.
There is a growing and well-founded
feeling among the veterans of the G. A.
R. , the ladies of W. R. C. and others
that Memorial day should be exclusively
devoted to its original uses and purposes
and that it should in no wise be con
founded with the idea of a field-day and
sports ; and with * this sentiment THE
TRIBUNE is in hearty accord. We now
express the hope that when another
Memorial day shall have rolled around ,
the sentiment of the people will be such
on this subject that no effort will be
made to devote any part of the sacred
day to sports , but that the programme
of the day shall be comprehensive and
interesting enough to engross the time
and attention of all. This day should
be made an educational one to the youth
in the line of patriotism and veneration ,
and the good and proper lesson is large
ly lost sight of and forgotten when sports
are injected into the day , which then
becomes simply another holiday-day.
A Fine Shower.
Preceded by a severe wind-storm , a
fine and much-needed shower fell over
this section , last evening. Clouds of
dust scurried along before the stiff
breeze , and the tumultuous few minutes :
before the rain began to fall caused
timid souls some alarm.
The rainfall was not heavy , but will
serve to keep the crops moving until
more profuse relief is given. It was en :
couraging revivifying. :

STo. 1612 , started out from Creston to o !

ided to do a little fast running on his P <

is he expressed it , "that 1612 is the
vinley Mac of the Burlington engines. "
Pile train fairly flew along the rails and
ver a part of the "Q" track which is

The Passion Play. Pn :
The stereopticon production of the „ ,
imous Oberamtnergau Passion Play a fc ]
iven in ihe Catholic church , Monday fcED
fternoon and evening , attracted good-
zed and well-pleased audiences. The
lay was produced in a numerous suc- itW
ssion of stereopticon views and W
ig pictures the latter being especially infc 1
iteresting. The views were but artistic
fc )
reations for the most part. The various fcw
enes in the greatest of all dramas were
iven with a realism quite startling and stai
.ways deeply engrossing. A lecturer
sscribed each picture and view , con-
cting the progression of events.

As to Chinch Bugs.
The publisher has received many in
quiries us to whether or not the stme is
lurnishing inoculated chinch bugs for
distribution where needed ; also inquiries
as to whether the inoculated bugs can
be secured from private parties in case
the state is not able to furnish them. A
letter from the s > tate entomologist an
swers both questions. The letter is as
follows :
Dear sir : The agricultural experiment
station of Nebraska , for beverul years ,
carried on experiments for the purpose of
ascertaining whether or not chinch bugs
could be successfully combatted by the
use of the white fungus known as spor-
otncuui globuhferuui. During this time
a great many persons were provided
with infected bugs and requested to
make careful experiments with them ,
following certain lines of procedure as
indicated by printed instructions accom
panying each lot of the infection sent
out. Less than one-half of the persons
to whom such setidings were made paid
any further attention to the matter , and
others did such cureless work that no
very definite results were obtained fur
ther than that it was determined that ,
under certain conditions , the disease
could be imparted to other bugs and
considerable benefit derived therefrom ,
Drovided climatic conditions were favor
able at the time of application.
About four years ago the head office of
he experiment stations located in Wash-
ngton decided that the work was no
o'nger experimental and would neces
sarily have to be carried by state instead
of national appropriations. Since no
state appropriations have ever been
made for this purpose the experiment
tation and university are unable any
onger to provide relief to farmers by
his process.
With the above statement of condi-
ions as now existing , you will no doubt ,
inderstand that , unless the coming leg-
slature makes some appropriation for
lie office of state entomologist , no fur-
lier aid can be expected from him.
Yours very truly ,
State Entomologist.
The above clearly disposes of any
bope of securing the inoculated bugs
from the state ; and our inquiry concern
ing private enterprise developed the
fact that the party , who sought to fill
the demand , last year , met with such a
scant patronage that he did not feel at
ill encouraged to continue his endeavor ,
his year. The demand , last year , bare-
y returned his postage expense. t
So the matter is up to the next legis-
ature to provide an appropriation for
he office of the state entomologist , who
vill then be able to fill all legitimate
: alls of this kind.
