Each flowery vale, each blushing rose Was wakened from its night's repose. The birds of song from rocking spray Gave forth their praise to coniinf? day. The busy scenes of daily life Again awoke to active strife. O'er sylvan vale and level plain The emerald green shone forth again. The sun, -when on its western way, Shed joy and gladness through the day. Its magic power so grand, supreme, Was felt on earth through every beam. # * # The brilliant rays of closing day Paled.into shades of somher gray. And darkness closed on hill and dale, On lofty mount and lovely vale. The day was closed and calm and still, The moon shone down on plain and hill. All busy life seemed hushed and still To murmurs of the rippling rill. # * # We look above an endless field Of glittering space, what may it yiela? What are life's hopes, what will it be Beyond this fitful, stormy sea, What would life be if lost that hope In all its fullest, various scope! We start at thought that lost should be A mother's love, the grand we see, And those who all and life did give That honor, homes, and peace might live. Comes o'er us then that solemn fear Is any loving power near? Are life's fond hopes and brightest dreams Secure for us in endless realms? Comes as from space a clearer view, A firmer faith, a hope anew, That all will be as thoughts unfold, No joys be lost in worlds untold. But thoughts kept on in varying mood, Viewed every scene, the grand, the good, Bevond this life was found a theme For soul's most wild and fancy dream. In endless space are grander scenes That rival all our wildest dreams, What space may be and time unfold In future life will yet be told. We feel that life must nobler be Than any earthly form we see. The soul yet longs for grander scenes, A nobler life and loftier themes. This life but gives the faintest ray Of grandeur of the coming day. Whence come these dreams of better life With which our daily thoughts are rife? In endless space a power must be That every thought and act can eee. HEKBY PURANT.

A sprinkle of rain at noon threatened to interfere with the outdoor parade, but before the hour the sun was out again. The opera house was crowded in the morning. A finer audience has never assembled than greeted Comrade Landis and listened to the lessons of the hour. At the cemetery again the grounds were thronged. The band led the veterans to the opera house at 10:30 o'clock and opened the day's program. Invocation by Rev. Sinclair, music by the glee club, and Rev. Landis was introduced by Commander Slagle. He spoke ably and eloquently, closing with a touching reference to memories the occasion recalled to the veterans before him. At 1:30 the procession formed under command of R. F. Hedrick, Thos. F. Cooke, and Dr. Morse. Company F in uniform followed the band, the veterans, sons of veterans, girls with flowers, and carriages in long line behind them. At the cemetery the graves were decorated, the grand army ritual read, a salute fired, and an inspiring five- minute eulogy pronounced by Rev. Southwell. It was a fitting observance of the day. The streets were decorated with bunting, the soldiers wore jasmine flowers as reminders of the south, secured and pinned on by the ladies, no games or sports were indulged in, honor was paid to the heroic dead as they would wish.
