Next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday Ada will be host to the Confederate Veterans of the whole state. This is probably the last time this city will be honored as the meeting place of the state reunion. \ er\ rapidly now are the ranks of the old heroes of the early sixties thinning, and within a few short years the last surviver of those troublous days will be lowered beneath the sod.
In view of these facts, can we do too much toi them on the occasion of their state reunion?
Can we, in fact, do enough for them on this auspicious
We think not, but we can do our best, and we believe Ada will not be content with doing less.
Every business house in the city should be propelly
decorated on this occasion. It is by no means unappro-priate to display the colors of the Confederacy, when
displayed in company with the stars and rdiipes. It is

It is also the duty of every citizen to get his business and his work in such shape as to give the old veteran* a part of their time. All persons who own cars should place them and a driver at the disposal ot the \isito_s at certain hours during each day.
Proper arrangements should, and we are sure will, be made for the accommodation of all guests in the matter of eating and sleeping quarters.
Every person should wear their best smile and go oui of their way, if need be, to make the old veterans feel at home, in fact we want them to feel that Ada is the most hospitable city in which they have ever assembled, and we want them to feel it so effectively that they will tell others about it wherever they go.
Every small boy and girl should make it a point to be quiet and courteous when in the presence of our guests, the old veterans, and they should do all in their power to make their visit here a comfortable and enjoyable one.
Ada has never done things by halves in the past. v\ e cannot afford to do so now. But let us outdo ourselves when the veterans come to town. As they depart from here next week, many of them never to return, let us acquit ourselves so they may have notmng but worts praise for Ada and her people.
