looked neat and natty in their newM
itnaki unirorms, wmie tne aegree team
of the Modern Woodmen, leading that
order, made a fine appearance tn the
beautiful Uniforms of the foresters of
the order, j .. - .' ' . t
With a j waving of the , Stars and

of adlrge, the procession passed up

Relief Corps v boarded "! three cars,

Aieanwhiie the "street "car line was
carrying maijy hundreds of people to
the cemeteries, while many others
drove tmtf .ori walled out. enjoying the
j pleasant .weather and the. city of the
aeau was crowded with thousands of
people long1 - beforailhe procession
reached Its gate. . It was ' the largest
crowd ever seen in the Cemetery on
Memorial Day. conservative people t-s-tfoiatlng
it at C0G0 to CjOO.
Alighting from the cars at the cem
etery the U. A. R, W. R. C. and Spanish-American
- War Veterans '- again
formed in line In their respective po
sitions on th4 Inside of the gate and
awaited the arrival of the Salem Band,
the militia. Modern ? Woodmen of
America, who marched all the way to
he cemetery. I ', Upon the arrival of
then latter bodies the line of march
again taken up and rontmued toj
the a. A. R. burial. plot. ' ?
"At the OX R.' burial 'ground en
trance the Woman Relief Corps, mi
litia and band opened' ranks and stood
uncovered and at port-arras .and al
lowed the G. A. R. and S. A. W.W.to
pass through while he colors' of the
V. R. C. were dipped In mute salute.
The 'veterans of the two wars ac
knowledged the respectful salutations
by marching, through. wKh uncovered
heads and the, sweet, solemn music of
the band " added much to the. Impres
sivneas of the oceaalen. r . , , :
One of the - most beautiful feature
of the decorations at the cemetery was
an archway constructed over the en
trance to the Q, A. R. burial plot the
central figure .of which was a smaM
model of " a ship overhanging -4 which
was. a large photo-engravure pf Adr
mlral Farragut. While upon either side
were placed . lithographic war scenes,
the whole being symbolical of r the
Army and Navy and was a very beau
tiful piece of work. :s ..'
, :The largest crowd ever assembled at
the cemetery was gathered there yej"
terday to witness th: service f and
every inch of ground was occupied all
around the circular plot wKhin. hear
ing distance while the greater;; por
tion of the," crowd was unable to ap
proach' that limit. ; - The ceremorjle Vt
the graves :were IhR almost every; re
spect Identical to farmer -services and
waa opened by theading of general
orders by;S. Bi.brmsby,' followed hy
a"t brief opening '"address iy ' Dr.v T. ' C.
SmJthi'' The band ihbn discoursed an
appropriate selection of music and an
eloquent prayer was pffertvi by Chap
lain. Sam Kleff man.; i A very Impres
sive and patriotic,- address was flelly
ered by Dr. T. C." Smith at te close of
which a salute 1 of three volleys was
fired by "i the militia company, at the
command of Lieutenant H. A. Kurtx.
The Floral tribute were then offered
by the , members of- the G. A. R. and
W. R C. and, while the entire assem
blage stood uncovered and at para.de
rest the beautiful notes of Taps? Were
sounded over the graves of. the- de
parted comrades and the ceremonies
were closed. " M d-1; j. ;.
! Upon their return to the- city the
members of the O.' A. R.; were con
ducted to the , Turner .block "where they
were furnished a sumptuous repast by
the ladle of the - W. R.- C. which was
partaken 'of flatteringly, the old vet
erans rehearsing ihedr: thrilling; experl-
ences and - escapades , of the war, the

Evsning Program. -;". -'y'-.
The armory hail was packed to over
flowiDg to liseta' to the evening exer
cises which was the closing observance
of this memorable day upon which oc
casion. Captain J.: Q. Barnes presided
as chairman, which position he Oiled
very -creditably. Besides tht chairman,
the stage was occupied by the officers
of the O. A. R.. Oov. T. T. Geer and
the Salem Band.. The decorations were
not elaborate yet very appropriate and
artistically arranged. '.f'---.:'
The exereisea -ere opened by . a
choice selection of. music by the band,
beautifully' rendered, and this was fol
lowed by the invocation by Rev, II.' A.
Ketchum. With but a few exceptions
and iiddltlon the program as rendered
waa the same as tltat published In yes
terday's issue of the Statesman ;, the
recitation by Mlfs Masa Oeer v being
omitted, and the additional numbers
were: A recitation, v "The Wounded
Soldier,' by Miss Echo Desart. and a
vocal solo. "Just As the Sun . Went
Down. by Miss Genevieve Trayer. The
program was a most excellent one as
a whole, the principal feature of .which
was I a splendid patriotic ' address by
Oovernor Geer during which he was
frequently Interrupted by vigorous and
spontaneous applause, and In conclus
ion was accorded a rousing ovation.
Another prominent feature, and which
elicited an enthusiastic encore, was a
song; by the Stalwart Quartet, "My
America during the last stanta of
which a large Amerlncan flag was dis
played from the side of the stage and
waved triumphantly over the quartet.
After the benediction Was pronounced
by Rev. T. H. Henderson the large au
dience was. dismissed and filed 'slowly
and silently out of the hall , with the
dying echoes of the last, -w and
pathetic hdtes of "Taps"! ringing In
their ears and with the satisfaction of
having witnessed the . most ' successful
and I complete celebration Of the Na
tion's only holiday for many years
past. Governor Geers address. In full,

the: wheels will not lift from the cnouriDe
The Champion is draw cut and has increased traction and power in hard cutting that .-is,
the resistance of the grass in "culting draws the wheels tighter to the ground. It is light draft and
has no neck weight. The. master wheels on the Champion Draw Cut mower aro warranted not
; to lift from tho ground when the finger bar meets an oWmction. ; V
The finger -bar in which the knife runs is drawn from a point in front ot rusnKn from the
, main frame of the machine. . All other mowers push the finger bar more or less, and that is what
reduces the cutting powef end makes them dangerous to ride on. When the finger bar is pushed
much or litlle there must be a bar to push it, a push bar. All front 'cut mowers have push
bars excepi the Champion., The Champion has none. s The Champion finger bar is drawn riot
pudied iu the leasL If a mower has a push baii it is dangerous to ride upon it, and it loses cut
ting power when in lough grass, because the tendency is to lift, the wheels. On other mowers
tho fitigcr ban's almost entirely pushed. Some other mower havo a small draw rod, but remem
ber they alio have a big push bar. i ALI SUCH MOWERS AKE PUSH CUT. When the
finger bar of a push cut mower strikes forcibly a fixed obstruction tlie insicje wheel raises otT tho
ground Tough gfafs acts as an. 'obstruction to, the cutter bar, and when the cutter bar of a posh
cut mower is obstructed, however little, the tendency of the-wheels.is to lift. It isnly when th?
obstruction takes the form of a fixed obstacle that the wheels will actually lift clear of the ground,
: but the tendency to lift is still there, and tlie tougher the grass the lighter the wheels press on the
ground and the less traction you have, just when you need it most'.
