AH Honor to The Boys Who Wore
The Blue.
Memorial day did not dawn as
our our people would have wished.
Instead of bright sunshine and a
balmy atmosphere, the sky was
overcast with heavy clouds and
Old Webfoot's usual moisture was
lightly and silently falling.
No obstacle barred our soldiers
in the 60s and hencei nothing
daunted them Memorial Day, and
everyrmng was done as per pro
gram published.
The decoration of the graves of
old soldiers in the cemetery ab
sorbed the greater part of the' fore
noon. After the dinner hour the Post,
with all visiting comrades, the V.
R. 'C. and the school children,
formed into line at Headquarters
and marched to the court house to
the inspiring music of fife and
Alter the preliminary work of
the Post was accomplished and the
Quartette had rendered appropriate
songs, the W. R. C. performed a
very touching service in honor of
the nation's departed heroes, strew
ing their graves with tears and
The recitation by Miss Bessie
Collison was especially well chosen,
and delivered in an earnest and
feeling manner. One by one eyes
were cast downward, lumps ap
peared in many throats and refused
to stay down, and handkerchiefs
were drawn as she portrayed, the
story of the death of two soldiers,
the one in blue, the other in giay,
during the dark hours of a night
following a day of bloody strife up
on a southern battle field. Told
in simple language and with touch
ing pathos, its closing words left
few dry eyes in the audience.
The event of the day, however,
was the Memorial address, made
by Hon. Geo. C. Brownell, of Ore
gon City. All unnecessary is it
to tell our readers of his oratory as
nearly all have heard him at other
times and places. But his word
picture of his first remembrance of
Old Glory and the boys in blue, the
departure of his father from home
and wife and babies in his North
ern New York, and his home-coming
in a plain coffin from the field
at Gettysburg, was, indeed, a vivid
picture. As a patriotic, eloquent
portrayal of the character of Amer
ican heroes, few better addresses
were listened to in Oregon Memori
al Day.
At the close, the audience sang
"My Country, 'Tis of Thee," and
three cheers were given for the Or
egon volunteers, and the audience
was dismissed. Everybody spoke
as having enjoyed the exercises.
The Richardson brought eighty
people from Newport and balance
of license limit from Yaquina, yet
left about forty because they could
not carry them.
The court house was never more
beautifully decorated with bunting,
flags and flowers. Much labor was
given to its decoration by the W.R
The Abe Lincoln Post heartily
thank all those who assisted them
in making the exercises as pleasant
and interesting as they were and
hopes they may enjoy many more
like days as the years roll by.

gant hat laid away in one of our

to trouble. The rest we won't tell
till later but, both parties are well
known here.
