o the b« in Island y\ NOTHE year has come and gone, and again today a tribute has been paid to our honored dead,' We have stopped briefly between tbe eternity of the past, with all |ts sacred recollections, and the eternity of the future, with all its possibilities, to renew 'the memory of those whose patriotism we admire and whose self-sacrifice we revere. Year by year our soldier dead are becoming greater in number. Year by year those who fought to make the perpetuity of this nation possible are passing away Still their memory lives in the hearts of their comrades and those they loved forget them not. This is tbe day set apart by tbe federal government on which some visible token Is paid to tbe soldiers tbat left borne and loved ones to go to the battle front in defence of tbe country that was bis home and that of his dear ones and in defence of that Big that waves over the land of the free and the home of the brave. Everywhere today over.thls broad land there met together those who are still fight- ng life's battles to pay a loving tribute .0 the memory of those comrades who finished their labors and have now long been sleeping that sleep that knows no waking. With us Memorial day was most appropriately obseivedunder the auspices of Wetzel-Compton post, No. 66, G. A. R.
