F. diamond innlversary celebration at Indlanapo- Is last week the Indianapolis News ays editorially: "The Odd Felloes jame and saw and conquered. Tbe News endeavored to make fitting rec- jgnltlon of their advent and progress, and yet It must needs add this enoo. mlum to do justice to the complete, fitting, beautiful and surprisingly arga street display. The arange-, ments cbieily were in the hands of Mr. V. H, Leedy. Manifestly they were n capable hands. Wo note that, without any intimation, so to speak, without any blowing of horrsor pass- ng of hats, this great parade was irganized and executed, scoring one if the completes! triumphs of tbe clnd that this community has ever witnessed. Good taste and splendid jxecution marked every feature of H, t was one of the largest parades that he town has ever seen. The floats, llustrative of the society In whose lonor all was done, ranged from grave gay, from lively to severe each, In Its way, marked by perfect table and notable for harmonious at- alnment. And, as we have said, all was done without an advance herald, without publicity, without committees, or clubs, or publications or appeals. [t seems to be a way the Odd Fellows aave. They put up the statue of Colfax In University Park after the same manner.. They quietly collected the money, had the statue made, and then asked leave of the authorities to put It In University Park; getting this they put It up, and. there It Is. So here, on the occasion of thl* meeting of their order they go quietly to work and for an hour or more send through the streets of Indianapolis one of the most perfectly appointed, largest and best managed parades that the oonu munlty has ever seen. Good for the Odd Fellows! They have a taking away with them. They get things done. All honor to them. May they come again. Indianapolis has had no guegts within her gates amid all the throngs that come whose presence has been more notable. Officer* Elected.

Tbe Memorial War Book will prove a handsome addition to ihe best selected library, being in many respects the superior of all histories of the late war. In point of graphic detail and n superb and faithful plctoilal description It is clearly ahead of anything of tbe kind ever published. There are many good histories of tbe jreat American civil war in existence, )ut they all dwell on a multitude of minor details, and devote much space to critical analysis of the military itrategy displayed by the opposing commanders. The mind of the reader a therefore fatigued and confused, for he obtains only an Imperfect concep Ion of the precise scope of the various campaigns. The actual scenes in the civil war not yet been described In a way 0 afford a realistic Idea of their char, aoter, although participants have given, from time to time, abundant Indl- •idual narrative* of what they saw and did. The object «f this Memorial i Var Book Is to present a series of pen ilctures drawn from material that has lever before been collected. It Is not history of the war, but a series of personal remlnlsoense* of stirring ^ventures and lifelike descriptions of campaigns and battles, as the soldier law them, with sufficient memoranda of the events attending tha progress of the struggle to give the reader an understanding of their relative importance. While the regular course of event* 1 closely followed, It has been the aim of the author to avoid all technicalities, and describe thb heroic deeds of Federal, and Confederate soldiers, uat as tbe men themselves, would do. Jut the great value of this work la the absolute fidelity of the Illustrations, of which there are 2,000. Many were taken during the progress of hostilities, and are now given the public for ;be first time. These are not sketches, but actual photographs, and can never 36 reproduced, es the originals are rapidly fading. The reader is thus placed on the very ground whore the liitorio scenes of the war occurred, and is carried back .to a period of thirty years ago It you have not yet examined this work call and look at one of the num. jers and eeo tho great merit of the offering the Journal is making. For ,be younger generation it is tho best book of the war ever offered and worth all the text books as it chains their attention and impresses their mind, being both entertaining and Instructive. ! Obituary. Margarat Brandt Woodling died at her home In Washington township May 19. 1894, after a lingering and very painful Illness. The deceased was born In Union ^county. Pa., Jan. 9. 1820, and moved with her parents bo Buoyrus, Ohio, when seven year* of age, and on March 22, 1838, was mar- rled to Daniel Woodling.

A short time before she died she called her family and friends to her bedside and bade them good bye and told them to meet her In heaven. In the death of "Grandma' Woodling, for by thla endearing name she was wont-to be called by her hosts of friends, the community has lost one of It* most respected pioneer settlers.
