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 drum. 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 flowers. 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 C. 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.

Our people should either conclude to celebrate or announce their decision not to celebrate so.others may have a chance. What shall we do? Ye editor dined with Mine Host Simpson in Elk City Sunday. We had a pleasant chat with Elkites who were visible to the naked eye, but most of them were out o' sight Rev. Bryant delivered an excel lent Memorial sermon to the old boys in blue and the W. R. C.
