    . . . This announcement appeared last week in the Herald, written by Rev. M. Judd and we heartily approve of it, with just this little amendment, we want to meet at the Boma cemetery at say, 9:30a. m. and decorate the graves of two old soldiers, Dr. D. C. Patton and Church Rodgers, then go to the Smellage cemetery. . . .
