Celebration at Deloit
Every year for many years past the citizens of Deloit and vicinity have celebrated in a quiet and social way, the Fourth of July. It has been a neighborhood gathering free from noise or display. This year there will be a similar gathering. Mr. J. Fred Meyers has accepted and invitation to address his old friends, the great majority being old-time subscribers to The Review. Only a brief address is expected, as this is not the prominent feature of the occasion. No preparation is necessary to respond to the sentiment, "The day we celebrate."
Darling - Long: On the 22nd inst. At the residence of the bride's father, in Deloit, by B. F. Dobson, Justice of the Peace, Mr. Albro E. Darling and Miss Roseanna? E. Long.

At his home in Deloit on the morning of July 2nd, 1895, Mr. Robert McMillen aged 73 years. The deceased was born in Antrim county, Ireland and in his 23rd year came to America. Two years later he was married in Allegheny City, Pennsylvania to Miss Fanny Gardner. Six children were the result of their marriage; three of this number have preceded their father to the grave. The deceased was brought up in the Presbyterian church, but on coming to this country united with the Weslyan Methodist Society. The funeral services were held in the M. E. church, on July 3rd at ten o'clock, Rev. Geo. S. Clift officiating. The remains were interred in the Deloit cemetery.
The Fourth at Deloit
It was delightful morning. The air was cool and refreshing. The eye was delighted by the beautiful corn fields robed in deepest green and the waving out and barley fields giving promise of a bountiful harvest.
The citizens of Deloit and vicinity had prepared a spacious bowry, by decking a frame work of poles with waving branches - to make a shade - leaving room on every side for the air to penetrate. It was paced north of town, on the highest point, and the view over the upper Boyer was beautiful and inspiring.
About ten o'clock the procession moved. The chief feature was forty-five girls in a wagon and on horse back representing the states. We did not remember of ever seeing so bright and blithesome an array of Misses - varying in age from ten to fifteen. The young ladies and beaux had gone to Denison, but the little ones, so clean and bright in their white frocks, sashes and ggypsyhats, remained at home with the old folks, who greatly enjoyed the celebration.
There were fully three hundred persons assembled. A few of the old pioneers - who began the settlement of Milford township in 1856 - forty years ago - were present and the children of that early day are husbands and matrons. These delight in an annual reunion. Thought the railroad is only seven miles away, yet it makes a wonderful difference in the easy, unconstrained, noncompetitive life these people lead. There are forty persons in the vicinity who have reached the span of life described in the scripture, as three score and ten.
We can only give the program in outline. The celebration was opened with a song - very nicely sung by a half dozen girls.
God's blessing was invoked in a beautiful and appropriate prayer by Rev. G. L. Clift. He is a most excellent gentleman, who lives Christianity and teaches both with life and tongue. This was followed with the reading of the Declaration of Independence by Mrs. Miller, who read it in a clear modulated voice.
The chief address was delivered by Mr. J. Fred Meyers, who spoke about forty minutes. His address endeavored to convey the one thought that liberty and free government were the prent of progressing every other direction. After another song Dr. Mann - a most aaffableand intelligent gentleman, made a brief address - giving in part an account of the first celebration held at Dubuque in 1836.
As the dinner hour had arrived an adjournment was held until 2 p.m. A bountiful basket dinner was spread and friends and neighbors had a delightful time visiting each other.
At two o'clock the people re-assembled when Mr. Ed. Snell made a brief address, which was well received and generously applauded. Mr. Stanley Brown followed in brief address, which laid special stress on the common school as the great factor for the perpetuity of the republic.
Mr. John Dobson made the most interesting address of the day, when he recited in plain words the proceedings of the first celebration in Craw rod county. He said that the winter of 1856-57 was the severest ever known in Iowa. There were then about forty families in Crawford County. Mr. George King - brother of Mr. M. King now in Denison, was orator of the day, and Mr. H. C. Laub red the Declaration. He asked that those present who remembered the occasion should hold up their hands. Only four persons were present, but the speaker said he knew of seven yet in the vicinity who were present thirty-eight years ago.
Mr. J. Fred Meyers rose and said that he was authorized to invite the Old Settlers to hold their reunion in Denison and that the citizens will make all necessary arrangements.
Elder Turner moved a vote of thanks to speakers of the day.
This closed the proceedings on the platform. After that there were various games including a baseball game for the young folks. The celebration was in every way a success.

-Well the Fourth of July has come and gone and everybody enjoyed themselves. Mr. J. Fred Meyers delivered a good address. The Local Speakers, Dr. Mann, John Dobson, E. R. Snell and Stanley Browne also did well. The fireworks in the evening were good and we say, "Hurrah for the Fourth."
Base Ball at Deloit
The base ball season at Deloit opened on Saturday last a little late to be sure but our boys being mostly sons of toil are not permitted to do much ball playing until the corn is laid by. They all, however, are muscular fellows, full of pluck and energy and knowing no such word as fail, they are up and ready to meet the foe and in the end to carry off the victory, as was proven last Saturday when the college nine of Denison came up and crossed bats with them.
As the old saying goes, "They are nice fellows but they can't play ball." Perhaps they are not "eddicated up to that pint." They were taken unawares when Charley Cose knocked the ball on top of the school house and made a home run. Art Darling also made a brilliant hit when he sent the ball down toward the post office. In fact, all played well and the crowd of onlookers cheered them lustily. To the college nine, we can say that we hope they will not be discouraged, but will come again in the near future. The score stood 14 to 19 in favor of Deloit.
