Cleaver pastor preached a Sermon on Quot Christian it constituted the Sermon preached Auu Unity to the veterans of the civil War on the sunday preceding decoration Day. It was a splendid Effort and will be treasured up in the hearts of Tho veterans one of the Best memorial sermons that they have Ever listened to. It was founded upon Joshua 1 5 and a have i not commanded thee be Strong and of Good courage by not afraid neither be dismayed for the lord our Rod is with thee Whithersoever thou guest. There shall no Man be Able to stand before thee All the lays of thy life. As 1 was with Moses so shall 1 be with thee. I will not fail thee nor forsake in february 18 51, Abra Kohn sent to Abraham Lincoln notice the Simil Ariev of the names a Flag of our country bearing on its Silken folds the words 1 have today Selec Ted Lor my text. Could anything have been More appropriate what could better have cheered his heart and strengthened his hand for the work before him it was Tho reiteration of the old time truth a a the Powers that be Are ordained of thus encouraged from the source firn which All True courage must Ever come Abraham Lincoln journeyed to Washington and took there the oath of office to uphold the Constitution but he registered in heaven an oath of service to save the Union. Aud gods Promise to the first Joshua who delivered Tho slaves of Egypt was fulfilled to the second Joshua who delivered the slaves of America. And the Flag presented by Abra Kohn to Abraham Lincoln floated in Triumph and glory from every Flag staff of the Republic. Tie two thoughts cannot be separated. True patriotism is Christian patriotism. Love of country without belief in the righteous cause of the country is a spark which May easily be fanned into an anarchistic flame. But love of country based upon a belief that god is on our Side will inspire 2,800,000 men who enjoyed As pleasant Homes As any people of any age who loved their families better than most people Aud prize a life As a gift from god to leave Home and family and offer to die for our imperilled institutions. Nor could anything less have kept reason from abdicating its throne Aud sustained 175,000 Brave men who suffered and starved and died in rebel prisons. The two thoughts love of god Aud love of native land duty to Rod and duty to country you the survivors of the victorious army of the civil War have combined in the customs of the grand army of the Republic 1st, in decoration Day Aud 2nd, in an annual Day of worship in the Public Sanctuary. The first you had not the Honor to introduce. A handful of Southern women went out in the month of May and placed a few Flowers Oil the Graves of their beloved Soldier dead. The women of the North looked Oti wondering that an idea so Beautiful Aud appropriate had not been suggested to their own the idea took Wing. The soldiers of the War rapidly forming into what is now known As Tho grand army of tie it up and spread it until at length in 1808,John a. 1-Ogan, then commander in chief of the grand army issued an order which established the custom to assemble on the both Day of May within the numerous gods acres that Dot our country Over wherein lie buried All that is mortal of our absent comrades Aud Garland with Flowers their Graves while paying tribute to their valor and their Worth. Aud hence each year we meet not around newly made Graves hut among those around which nature has already strewn the memorials of her love. Above every Tomb her Sunshine has smiled her Clouds have wept Over All she has hidden some grasses Nestle some vines creep and to lib Butterfly a Lieut Emblem of immortality spreads its wings Over every Tomb. Along Side of this custom in late years has grown up another custom that of Uteri us our of a year As an organization the Sanctuary of god to Render the re unto him tit homage which he of right demands As the great architect of the universe the preserver of nations and the Saviour of men. My Oue prayer today and my Only ambition in the result of this service is that what As an organization you have done As individuals you May do that love for country May be United with love for god Aud that duty toward both May result in a service As faithful to your god As was your service to your country. You will be told that the great civil War has passed by its great armies Are disbanded its tents Are struck its Jaiup fires Are put out its Muster Rolls Are Laid away but it is my privilege As a minister of the gospel and in this sacred Temple to Tell you of another army the army a of our Soldier dead whose numbers no presidential proclamation can general order disband. The cemeteries Are ten in camping grounds tin White stones Are their tents their Muster Roll is not Laid away and their Camp fires still Burn in our hearts this army is still Early closing for the summer seems Well nigh assured a few of our merchants have by eur working very hard during the last few Days and As will be see from the list of sigm is printed below All hut a very few of our business my n have been won Over to the movement. The Plau this year is to begin Early closing the first of june instead of the first of july or later As been customary in the past. The proposition is to cover Throe months reopen us the stores on september the first. The stoics will be open but one night each week saturday night. The merchants begin to realize that by keeping their stores open after six of clock during june they Are missing the Benefit of the evenings during the most Beautiful Mouth of the year when the hours of Daylight Are the longest. They can easily forego the Freedom of the even bugs in september when darkness begins to set in Early and the weather is Apt to be Cool enough to make life comfortable in doors. In the present movement to effect Early closing the merchants seem to be the prime movers and the clerks who in previous seasons wore the leading spirits in the Enterprise Are now not much in evidence although their Hearty sympathy is with the movement. Lii Early closing this year an exception is made of the night of july sri. The paper circulated for signers reads As follows we the undersigned business men of Danville believing that some Little recreation and Shorter business hours Are essential to Good health hereby agree to close our respective places of business each night at six of clock from june 1st to september 1st, inclusive saturday nights excepted.
