An impressive occasion. By iaviutlon the members of the G. , R. attteuded memorial services, rellminary to thosa of Decoration ay, at the Congregational church yes* £rday morning, Thu veterans, under ommandor Herb, occupied places of enor in the front seats of the church. 'hoy were in fatigue ifnifortn and word heir customary badges. The services opened with an organ oluntary rendered by Prof. Tarbet, ollowed by the hymn "Praise God rom whom all blessings How," by the ongregation, and an invocation by the astor, Rev. ri. S. Mills. A hymn was endered by a quartette choir consist* ng of Misses Emma Harris, Minnie oalB, Messrs. R. A. Haigbt and A. L. 'anlele. Alternate reading of the 144tli salm then occurred followed by anoth- r hymn, "Oh praise ye the Lord." After scripture reading the National nthem "My Country 'tis of Thee," was rendered by tbe Arion Quartette, ucceedcd by prayer. The next hymn as "Lord, while for all mankind we ray." Mr. Mills took for the text of his very ntorastlng discourse the 7th verse of he 4th chapter of 2d Timothy: "I uve fought a good fight." It is fitting that the church should nticipate the services of Decoration ay. We should not only reverence he memory of our "Fallen Horoes"and each our children to do the same but 'e should pay a tribute as well to the ving heroes those in our midst today, urfriends,our neighbors,seme of whom ear the scars of battle. They fought a ood fight. Many soldiers do not ear a uniform. In one sense all re soldiers. Infant feet patter in line nd old age Keeps military step. It ia f the first importance in every conflict 0 be on the right side. There is today a confederacy of evils pposed by a phalanx arrayed in efense of the good, the true, the eautltul. This p halanx needs recruits. Let us all stand on a high platform of nnciple and oppose the evil tendencies f the times, follow the leader who ever eadi aright that we can finally nay, 1 have fought a good light." After prayer the Arion Quartette sang Best, Soldier, Rest" very effectively, oncluded with the benediction by Mr. Mills. The church was elaborately and ppropnately decorated for the ocasion by Mrs. Boals, Mrs. Black, tlrs. Flynn, Capt. F. T. Lewis and Mr i. M. Stamps. The eye was first ttracted by two large American flags ooped over the door to the audience oom. Around and on ' the al- ar were a profusion of boau- iful flowers. At the south'- of the latform was a portrait of Lincoln, at be north that of Urant, in front appenr- d the likeness of Logan, over the ilatfor.m that of Garfiold, all draped in lack. In semUcircles above were the words, in white letters on a black ground: "In memory of our fallen leroes." A large flag was also suspeu> ed above and one furled on a standard ay across the altar with stacked arms at each side. Over a stand was spread he blood stained, battle scarred flag of Co. G, 97th Illinois regiment, presented o the soldiers when they \eft for the ront by the ladies of Alton. It was carried through the war, and during one of tbe fierae fights under the-entrenchments of Vicksburg, its bearer, .liohard Lowe, of Jerseyville, was kill ed. On tbe flag of Co. G lay an open Bible, over this the crossed swords of 3ol. F. S. Rutherford, first commander of the 97th, aud Capt. F. T. Lewis. Capt. F. T Lewis' sword was captured at the battle of Blakely, by Col. Spicer of the Union army,from the Colonel of the 35th Mississippi regiment and presented by tbe captor to Capt. Lewis. A younger brother of Mr.. H. B. Bowmati was captured with twelve others of a Pennsylvania regiment in Virginia by tbe Confederate Captain, afterwards General Forrest, soon after hostilities commenced, and before e general battle. When the Union author itios sentenced a number of guerillas to hanging, the Confederates \oompelloc the Union prisoners spoken of to draw lots to decide which should die in retaliation for the execution of the guerillas. Col. B. drew a black bean on four different occasions and at one Urn was conducted In sight of the gallows Through a combination of oiroumstan ces the sentence pronounced on th rebels was remitted and, consequently the condemned Union oflioors wor spared Col, bowman was soon after wards exchanged. The flag of Co. G, 97th Illinois, wa presented to tlio soldier boys at Cam Butler, MlBsH&tt»e Plnn iioy, afterwards Mrs. F. T. Lewis, sine deceased, making the prosentatio address in behalf of the ladles c Alton. The Arllngtons.

The honorary premiums for the best ipeoimens of work in the school exposition were awarded today and the icbool house will be open this evening or the benefit of. those who did not get around on Thursday evening.
