The Colonel of the Third Regiment.
Col. Frank M. Parker, a brave and dis

elected Colonel of the Third Regiment of
State Guard. Col. Parker daring tho war
commanded the SOtb-K. C. Infantry of
Ramseui's Brigade and was sev rely
wounded on several occasions. We con
gratulate tbe members of tbe Third Regi
ment upon their choice. They could not
have made a better selection or bestowed
the honor upon a truer man or braver sol
dier if they bad searched the old common
wealth from the mountains to the seashore.
As the matter does not seem to be fully
understood by some we agaia state that
the observance of Memerial Day will take
place on Friday, the 9th, instead of Sat
urday, the 10th. This has been decided
upon after a full deliberation of the entire
matter. At first the Ladies of the Mem
orial Association were unwilling to have
it on any other daj than the 10th, but
as Saturday Is a bad day for the suspen
sion of business, at tin earnest request of
many business men they waived their
wUhes and Inclinations in the matter.
Friday was cho.en as the most con venisnt
day by those interested in the observ
ances. The Concert Last Night.
The concert last night by the Sunday
School of the Front Street M. E. Church
was well attended and in some respects
was better than on the previous night,
and in no respect was it inferior. It was
a fine musical entertainment, and the at-,
tensive audience was truly delighted
The entire silence maintained while the
smaller girls were singing the sweet songs
selected for them, and which they rendered
with remarkable correctness, was a pre
f jnd homage to the parity and innocence
of childhood, while the floral offerings so
lavishly bestowed marked the admiration
and appreciation in which all were held.
The director, the organist and the entire
school have reason to be proud of their
eff rts, but none have a greater right to
commendable pride than their efficient
superintendent, Capt W. M. Parker. He
Is devoted to his pupils, and the mutual
love which exists between him and them
must be a source of joyful gratification to
