The time is at hand when duty calls us to prepare for the solemn services of Memorial Day^ In accordance with our rules and regulations, the 30th of May is set apart for its reverent observance. When a libeitv-loving people enjoying the blessings of peace and .prosperity, cease from their labors and with grateful hearts pay loving tribute to the memory of men who finished their course with honor and crossed the star-lit line, now rest peacefully under the shade of trees on eternal camping grounds. Sweet be their sleep! Let us again cover the mounds with spring-time's richest offerings. Once more let the flag they loved be raised above them. Let silvered age standing by their tombs feel that, with the dust of such men sleeping in our soil, the republic will stand with its glory undimmed and its power unbroken. Let childhood weave garlands for them, and at thPir graves receive inspiration that will keep them earnest in loyalty, pure in citizenship and faithful to duty. All members of the G.A.E. are requested to meet at their hail, on Saturday, May 30th, at 9:30 o'clock, to form the line of march to Cherry Grove cemetery, to decorate the graves oE comrades. A delegation will meet friends at Yernon cemetery at nine o'clock to decorate there, Especially do we ask all other organizations and friends to join with us, march with us and share with us the sympathy of those whose friends we remember by placing flowers on their graves. Come and be one of our number. W. S. Cooley. J. H. Gardner, Adjt. Com. Once upon a time a man died and sought to enter heaven. "Have you served your time in purgatory?" said the keeper of the gate. "No, I have to confess that I have not. but Ihave been married," said he. " Walk right in," said the gatekeeper, "any man who has been married has had purgatory enough." Then came another to the gate, and to the question, " Have you been through purgatory?" answered "no." "Then depart to the lower world." "But," says the poor fellow, ' 'I see my friend oyer there in heaven, who has just got in, and he has never been through purgatory." *'Ah, just so, but he has been married." "Well, then I am all right, for I have been, married twice." "Begone at once, we want no fools in Paradise!" , In the Lake regions of Wisconsin, Northern Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa and Dakota, there are hundreds of charming localities pre-eminently fitted for summer homes. Nearly all are located on or near lakes which have not been fished out. These resorts are easily reached by railway and range in variety from the 'full dress for dinner5 to the flannel shirt costume for every meal. Among the list are names familiar to many" of our readers as the perfection of Northern summer resorts, Nearly all of the Wisconsin points of interest are within a short distance from Chicago or Milwakee, and none of them are so far away from the 'busy marts of civilization' that they cannot be reached in a few hours of tray el, by frequent trains, over the finest road in the north-west—the Chicago, Milwaukee & St.Paul Eailway. A description of the principal resorts, with a list of summer hotels .and boarding houses, and rates for board, will be sent free on application to Harry Mercer, Michigan Passenger Agent, 7, Fort street, west, Detroit, Mich. 2 There is a "right bright ad." in the Sentinel which we want every business man oo read.
