Lake Park Celebrates

Well, we had our final noise making demonstration and hurrah over the ending of the war Monday afternoon and evening. After two false claims the third time proved the charm, and their (sic) was sure some racket for a small town. Church bells, fire bells, guns, revolvers, squakers,(sic) horns, drums, and all manner of noise making devices were used, while the paraders were of all sizes and ages, from the baby in the cab to women over seventy years of age, who marched through the streets waving flags and cheering. There was a large bonfire and the burning of the three Kaisers in effigy.
