MEMORIAL SERVICES: Cold Weather Mars Attendance at the Local Cemeteries
Attorney Dan J. Kelly, of Syracuse, a World-war veteran, delivered an excellent discourse at Glenside cemetery last Friday afternoon, and the talk of Rev. William T. Ivey, at Huron Evergreen cemetery in the morning of Memorial day, was also highly commended.

The weather was very cold and unfavorable, reducing the attendance at both services. Glenside presented a beautiful appearance with its trimly-mowed grass, fresh flowers and flags, but the cold called for overcoats and furs.
