The case of C. H. Hall vs. Rahm Bros., over some hay which had been purchased by the defendants, which has been adjourned several times, was decided by Justice of the Peace last Saturday in favor of the plaintiff. The court held that a written contract signed by both parties could not be broken by evidence. Mr. and Mrs. R. M. Jenks, C. L.

They left here at fifteen minutes after six in the morning and returned at noon and stopped two hours at Maplehurst. Mr. Jenks purchased two full blooded Cockerel Spaniels while there.


Memorial Day Observed

Memorial Day has again come and passed. The weather could not have been better to allow the people to observe this great day in commemorating the deeds of our dead heros. Every year, in the full tide of spring, at the height of the symphony of flowers and love and life, there comes a solemn pause and through the silence the nation hears the lonely pipe of death. Year by year the comrades of the dead follow, with public honor, procession and commemorative flags and funeral march--a tribute from us who have inherited a nation’s glory to the heroes who gave. Memorial Day has a meaning beyond mere honor to the dead. It celebrates and solemnly re-affirms from year to year national act of enthusiasm and faith. Peace call for its patriotic devotion, no less than war and, stripped by the direct associations which gave the rise to it. This is a day when by common consent we pause to recall what our country has done.

The exercises in this village were carried out on the usual lines. Many people had already gathered at the Allen Opera House before the procession arrived where an excellent program was rendered, consisting of music by the band, address by Rev. Towne, singing and drilling by the school children, prayer by Rev. Towne, recitations by Marian Cole, Flossie Rossman, Charles Arquette, Clara Kilburn, James Sayles, Agnes Doyle, Laura Baker, Lulu Welsh, address by Rev. Towne and a song by the male quartette, after which the people marched to the cemetery, in the parade being the G.A.R., W.R.C., school children and the citizens in carriage, and decorated the graves of the fallen heroes and then to Graves’ bridge where sailor soldier exercises were held.
