The reception given at the res

Clark on Wednesday night
last week, in honor of the fact that
their son,. Mr. J. B. - Clark, had
reached his majority that day,
was decidedly ode of the most
elegant and pleasant social events
of the season in Perry.
With the exception of a few of
the immediate neighbors, the
guests were young people, associ
ates of the young man whose birth
day the event celebrated. There
was no strict formality bbserved,
and the guests enjoyed to the ut
most the opportunities for pleas
ure accorded them. The front
yard was. brilliantly lighted by
pine fires on large stands, and the
well arranged grounds and seats
afforded pleasure to those who
felt inclined to indulge in an oat-
door promenade. In the house

were brilliantly illuminated and
tastefully decorated—a miniature

Decoration Day is now a legal
holiday, and should be observed
a3 such. Not for drunken sports,
but to bring to our remembrance
the gallant satrifices of the mar
tyrs of the late civil war. It is
not only a sacl, bat sacred and
pleasant service to decorate their
“We deck alike their graves to-day,
Whether they wore the blue or gray.”
It should be observed in every
city and town throughout the
country, where there is a grave to
decorate. The number is increas
ing every year, and the old veter
ans are passing over to the siient
Now. Mi - . Editor, with your per
mission, I would like to suggest a
plan for its observance in Perry.
First, kindly ask for the suspen
sion of all business on the after
noon of that day. Let a speaker
be engaged, and let all the singers
of the two churches meet, appoint
a leader, and arrange the music
for the occasion. Let the general
committee have a wreath and bou
quet made for each soldier’s grave.
Select as many young girls as
there are wreaths. Let the Mayor
of Perry act as chief marshal. Let-
general invitation be made
through the Journal for all citi
zens and veterans in the county to
join in the service. Let a pro
cession be formed at 2:30 p. m.,
sharp, on Coart House Square in
the following order:
Chief Marshal and two aids.
Girls dressed in white with
wreaths and boaquets.
Veterans of the war.
In this order march to the cem-
eterj’, where a wreath-bearer will
be stationed at the head of each
soldier’s grave. Prayer will then
be made by the Chaplain of the
Perry Rides. Next a salute will
pe fired by the Rifles,duringjwhich
the graves will be decorated.
The procession will then be re
formed and marched to one of the
churches, w here the oration will be
delivered, opening and closing
the exercises with music by the
united choirs. Benediction.
Flowers should be received by a
committee who will make all the
wreaths alike. This programme
is very simple, but if well carried
out, will increase the interest ev
ery year. The writer has seen ser
vices commenced in this way re
sult in thousands of participants
The above suggestions are given
with the hope that they may be of
some use to those having the mat
ter in charge.

The ladies of the Perry Memo

Mr. A. E. Graves' was dreaming
last Monday night, just between
midnight and day, that he was on
his way to a moonlight picnic, and
in the midst of his dreams he awoke
and fonnd the room he was occu
pying all illuminated by a blaze of
fire coming from a chair where his
children had thrown their wearing
apparel of that day. The gar
ments had burned into ashes, and
the chair was also nearly con
sumed. This was caused by fire
popping out into the chair. It
"was certainly a narrow escape, and
should be a well learned lesson to
his, as well as all other children.
Not as much corn was killed by
the cold weather as was antici
pated, though some had to plant
over. The first cold snap has given
the writer some experience in re
gard to coyn, and I am satisfied
that it takes a very severe cold
spell to kill it, or to prevent it from
coming up. Tbe larks and mice,
I find, have injured the first corn
planting more than the cold weath

corn early and cotton late—say

We have been informed that the
railroad officials intend moving
the depot at this place, on the op
posite side of the road, because of
the platform being so near the
main line that it endangers the
lives of passengers in getting on

in motion. We are satisfied it will
meet with the approval of the citi
zens of the town.

It was up to a right good stand,

corn will ever come out again, is
yet to be learned. It was damaged
by the other cold sped, and if it is
not kiiled this time, I will say
corn cannot be killed unless it is
