Badge of Custer Post Adopted for the Occasion.
A handsome metal badge designed from the above cut will be present
ed to every delegate attending the state G. A. R. encampment to be held
in McMinnville June 20-23.
The promise is for a large attendance of delegates from every post
over the state. All should come if possible, or send an alternate, The
local representation of visitors will also be large. As there is no celebra
tion of the Fourth of July here this year, large numbers will avail them
selves of the opportunity the Encampmeut will afford to take its place.
The large arch at intersection of Third and D Streets is being erected
by Messrs. Cooper and Peckham, and will be a great feature. Its exalted
center will be occupied by the goddess of liberty, while on bastions at the
four bases of the arch will stand sentrys in their box, and at points on the
semi-circle will be stationed little girls scattering flowers upon the proces
sion as it passes beneath. The arch center may also be used as a band
stand for evening concerts.
The handsome souvenir to be issued by The Reporter office will bear
on its cover the above design. The little book promises to sell speedily
because of its intrinsic worth as a military history of the county, as well a,
a thing of value and joy forever to preserve and look at in future years.
Let all vie with each other in putting their best foot foremost at the
coming encampment, and in making the stay of our visitors the pleasautest
possible. It is a golden opportunity.
