A conIIESPONDSEIST or the Wyoming le 7
publican, writing from Forksville, SAM;
van Connty, has this to say in regard to
the building' of railroads through that
"-I see by the papers there is a project
fora narrow gauge road from Montout
County to Bernice, this county. This
would b 6 well enough, as far as it goes.
But what this. county needs to frilly" de
velop° .its agricultural and , mineral re
sources is a through line, and this should
be along the Loyal Sock, on a direct line
Connecting Williamsport and . Bingham
-ton. Sullivan County notbeing traters.ed
by any large river, public improvements
have only in a small - degree reached its
borders: Though situated in the interior
Sullivan County - has perhaps no more
waste land than many other counties in
the State, and if it bad they needed rail
road facilities it would take higher rank
as a healthful and productive region. If
this route was completed a narrow gauge
road could: be built along the east branch
from Porksviilo. to Bernice, which would
pass through the vast central timber and
-mineral regions of the county. It' would
pass within a few miles of Lewis lake. If
this point was more easily . accessible by
public, conveyance it would soon bwxnue
the most noted summer resort in Penn
sylvania, as it is one of the most delight
ful situations in the State." ,
EASTATIUOOK'S new Hall at Athens,.
was opened to the public on Thursday ev
ening, May Ist, whereupon the Gazette
of that place summarizes thusly : -
"The Hall is well lighted; ventilated,
and easy of access. This. will prove a
great convenience to the'citizeas of Atli
ens who have felt .the need asuch an ac
commodation since the destruction of-the
old ball. Mr. Eastabrook deserves credit
for this enterprise, and we hope he will
not regret adding the third story to his
new building. Athens during the—past
few years of general depress ma in all
branches of active industry, has steadily
grown in numerical' and commercial
strength. In that time the bank building,
Fitch &"-Ji.itiney's, and P. T. Page's two
structures, all Wick, have.been built. Mr.
Carrell, who is one of our most enterpris
ing - citizens has also added two or three
weodcu structures for 'isi:m.4s purposes:
Mr. Treadway, bas enlarged his cored•
building, Mr. Drake building fie his own
aceommodatiOtlt adjoining, which, in con
neetiOn withl the important improvements
frequently being made at the Bridge and
Novelty Works, where so muchlof our in--

in retullo for active labor, gives a fair ex

I. Inn compliance with the Holes and
lZeLfulations of the Grand Army; and Gen
_No. 5 frog' National Head
quarters; as well as in accordance with
national custom, Friday, May 30th. will
be observed as Memorial Day, when we
will assemble to decomne the graves of
our dead comrades and honor with fitting
and appropriate ceremonies their Memo
r:VS, when We will not only lay upon their
gravesfiagrant klowers and Iva: dhes of
Lurch' but plant above them the flag
which represents the National .Unity in
whOse - cause they diet/.
IL' As year,by•year Decoration Day is
more generally observed. the ceremonies
bocome more elaborate. It- is our duty,
however, to see that the original purpose
of the day be. not forgotten, and that the
ceremony be preserved in all its beauty
and simplicity as. far as possible, and to
discoamtena — n - ce anal oppose everything
that tends to detract front the solemn sig
nificance of the day and its proker observ
The associations of the day arc too sad
and its memories too sacred to permit it
to Le made a day of -sport or festivities.
ft is requested that !lags hoislNd upon
that day be at half-mast.
111. As we gather at :lie graves of those
who are buried among kindred and
Mends, let us be reminded of the thou
sands who sleep their last sleep in un
known, unmarked and ungtiarded graves
as they fell in the battle's terrible track.
And as we think of the sufferings of these,
our dead comrades, and the sad and sof.)
rowing homes throughout the land, let us
renew our pledges "to care for thcise
whom the dead have left to our care and.
protection." And may the memory of all
these •sa rifices Inuit° us to a t4till purer
and loft er patriotism, aad to a more ch
terminef and earnest devotion to .the in
stitutions whose perpetuity was secured
at such a cost, so that vcace, good will
and prosperity may forever prevail in our
country. .. .
IV. It is sugzested that each Post pre
pare a record of all soldiers - buried within
its limits, giving name, af, rank, con.
pany, regiment,.date and cause of death
of each, and that this record - be preserved
in sonic appropriate malinei, and that the
cerenion)es of Decor:Akin be made more
impressive by the - trading of it. Each
-year additional names will be added Until
the last veteran has been mustered out,
when it can be handed down to posterity
and be prized, it. may be, as the roll of
honor of the town or village to which it
belongs. In this way the record of even
the humblest comrade may be at least
partially perpetuated, and his patriotic
devotion and heroi: deeds remembered.
V. The Beveined Clergy, Churches,
;book and societies arc requested to par
ticipate in a proper z.,elebratio4of the day.
Where there are I'oAS of the Grand Ar
my located, it is expected that not a coin
ratle's grave, no matter how tecluded,
will be uadecorated, and where there are
no wpresentatives of our Order, it is
trusted that others will kindly and ten
