Cf. A. K., through its coinmiltee
desires to express its thnnks to the
citizens of St. Johns for their many
acts of kindness and courtesy ex
tended to them on Memorial day.
Our thanks are due to the press for
the liberal use of its columns; to
Rev. Gates and the ministers of St.
Johns for services on Memorial
Sunday; to citizens and children for
furnishing many beautiful flowers
for the occasion, for decorating the
graves of our deceased comrades:
in ilic Si. Inlms llnms Hand fur its
uenerous liberality in furnishing
music: to the owners of the steam
ferrv in donatimr the use of their
boat for the observance of the ser-
vices by the W. R. C.
The annual visit to the schools
of St. Johns, Portsmouth, Penin
sula and Ockley Green were tin
usually interesting, where the com
rodes were so cordially received by
both teachers and children and the
presentation of beautiful flowers
brought forth the most generous
feeling of loyalty towards those
who had offered up their early life
In protection of our country! show

the last echo said goodbye away up

The memorial services of the
Modern Woodmen of America nt
the ICvaugelical church last Sun
day were well attended and were
very interesting. The services
were conducted by Rev. Chester P.
Gates at the church, who dclivcicd
an eloquent tribute to the order
and to the memory of the departed
After the services nt the church
the procession was led by the
M. W. A. baud and degree team to
the car mid a large number went to
I.one Ifir cemetery from Washington
street, where the ceremony was
conducted according to tlie ritual
by Consul G W. Dunbar in it very
impressive manner, assisted by the
M. W. A baud with 11 number of
selections. Then the graves of the
1'he M. W.
were decorated with roses.
A. were esiiecially
pleased to acknowledge the fra
ternal spirit manifested in the or
ders of the Odd Fellows, Knights
of Pythias and the Kaglcs, who at
tended the services in the church
in a body. It is vt'ry gratifying to
have the other fraternal societies
join in these ceremonies and it will
induce 11 wnrm fraternal feeling be
tween the different societies.
