Last Thursday Decoration Day
was very fittingly observed by
the citizens of Buffalo and vicin-
ity, and the program of exercises
was carried out as advertised
Uncle Jimmie Meyers was the
marshal of the day.
The line of march formed at
the bank corner at 10:30 o’clock
and then proceeded to the ceme-
tery where the graves of the
honored doad were liberally be-
decked with flowers.
Dinner was prepared for all
the soldiers and their wives at
the Methodist church.
At 2 o’clock p. m. Rev. S. G.
Sloan delivered a very appropri-
ate address to the old soldiers.
One special feature of the day’s
celebration was the splendid mu-
sic and singing rendered by our
unsurpassed local talent.
May they all “fall in ranks”
on May 30th next.'

Speaking of lawyers and how
they are over-represented in our
public life, we recently made the
point that fanners were under-
represented. Unfortunately, in
speaking of the wealth of the
farmers we gave the figures for
the North-Atlantic division of
the United States instead of for
the United States as a whole.
The number of farmers who live
on farms owned by themselves is
approximately 4,000,000, and of
these more than 2,600,000 own
their farms, and free of debt. A
shrewd old lawyer once advised
a younger one: “Never get into
an argument with a fellow who
pronounces words just like they
are spelled.” He had learned
what a great many others are
now slowly learning, that a man
who gets his information by a
coal oil lamp and does his think-
ing over the plow and the work
bench is apt to develop mental
grip and punch. These self-edu-
cated thinkers may lack super*
ficial smoothness and fluency of
speech, but they have a way of
seeing the main thing. If there
are still any who imagine a few
centers have a monopoly on the
brain supply, they need only to
take a trip and do some honest
listening. In every country com-
munity, in every hamlet and lit-
tle town they will find these orig-
inal thinkers quiet, hard work-
ing, law-abiding, who read their
two or three papers through ev-
ery week and digest all they
read; who read surprisingly good
books; know something of the
rocks and soil and stars; often
study out inventions in their
minds; develop theories of gov-
ernment; ponder long and deeply
on religious subjects. These men,
and there is a surprisingly large
number of them, go about their
work, a part of the great indus-
trial machine. For a long time
it was supposed by aristocratic
gentlemen that they never tho’t
at ail except of their tools, or felt
anything but hunger. Among
the other surprises and shocks of
the day is the dawning realiza-
tion that these self-educated, si-
lent thinkers, scattered by the
thousands all over the country,
are able not only to separate the
chaff from the wheat but to run
the whole threshing machine. —
