Logan originated Decoration Day will -fie read Djr tom- rade Henry Baseman at the Memorial Day Services at convention fiau tomorrow afternoon. The order reads: Headquarters Grand Army of the Republic, ' i Washington, D, C, May 5, 1868. General Orders No. 11. 1. The 30th day of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or ptherwise decorating the graves of ;:he comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and those bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet churchyard in the land. In this observance no form or ceremony is prescribed, but Posts and comrades will in their way arrange such fitting services and testimonials of respect as circumstances may permit. We are organized, Comrades, as our Regulations tell us, for the purpose, among other things, "of preserving and strengthening those kind and fraternal feelings which have bound together tho soldiers, sailors and marines who united to suppress the late rebellion." What can aid more to assure this, result than by cherishing tenderly the. memory of our heroic dead, who made their breasts a barricade between our country and its foes? Their soldier lives were the reveille of freedom to a race in chains and their death a tatoo of rebellious tyranny in arms. We should guard their graves with sacred vigilance. All that tho consecrated wealth and taste of the nation can add to their adornment and security is but a fitting tribute to the memory of her Blain defenders. Let no wanton foot tread rudely on such hallowed grounds. Let pleasant paths invite the coming and going of rever-.,ioUrro iin.l fnnrt mourners. Let no vandalism of avarice or neglect ro.nmu of tiiiio testify to the pres ent or to the coming generations that we have forgotten as a peopie i tui of a free and undivided republic. dull and other i,v.,iu oianV ntiH othpr hearts cold in the solemn trust, ours shall keep it well as long as the light and warmth of life remains to us.
