    Special attention, old soldiers, both Gray and Blue. The Albert G. Davis Post, No. 76, will decorate the soldier's graves on May 30, at Boma at 11:30, both places being close together and handy to the train. All are welcome. May 30 is the decoration day all over the United States. It is also my birthday. I never been able to find a comrade whose birthday is May 30, I would give a premium to find one.
    It has become custom to request a shower of birthday cards I received a small shower last May 30. I will ask for a flood of them this time not over one thousand. I hope they will fill my hat full at the decoration. We hope to have a good time on that day.
