May 30 was observed in a quiet way in Galena. In the afternoon a number of our citizens assembled at the cemetery and decorated the graves of soldiers and friends. Elder O.W. Jones of the Christian church, read scriptures, offered prayer and made brief remarks. In the evening services were held at the M. E. Church, there being rather a small attendance for such an occasion. Short addresses were made by J. Frank Seaman, T.S. Powell, Elder Jones, Prof. Geo. W. Hendricks, O. Scott and Theo. Tromly, The day is one of deep significance, and we hope in future to see it more fully and impressively observed in Galena and Stone county.

On Monday night last occurred the China Wedding of Dr. LaFayette Henson and wife, at their home in this city. It was attended by between 50 and 60 invited guests, and was in all respects a success. About all the guests were married or middle-aged people. A lovely set of China, numbering 100 pieces, was purchased by the guests and presented to the bride and groom. Though invited, the writer was unable to be present, and we are obliged to take the report of others. We learn that the evening was passed in social intercourse, and much enjoyed by all. The supper, the word does not express the meaning in this case; was a feast that did credit to the family. But also, was a credit to Galena and Stone county; and was greatly enjoyed. At about 11 o'clock the company separated wishing the Dr. and Mrs. Henson the return of many anniversaries of their wedding day.
