Less than half a hundred of the now grey headed "boys" of the old ióth Michigan Infantry responded to the 'Toll cali," yesterday. The stars and stripes floated over the court house and cheerily waved a welcome to the veteran soldiery. At the afternoon business meeting the minutes of the previous meeting were read and adopted and Capt. Z. B. Prentiss read a paper, "On to Gettysburg." The street railway placed its cars at the disposal of the vets, who made a trip to the grave of Col. Welch. The following officers for the ensuing year were elected: President, Menzo Swart; vice president, Theo. Hoenïnghausen; secretary and treasurer, A. M. Apted. The next place of meeting will be Plymouth. A banquet took place in the evening, an address of welcome being extended by Mayor Darling, with response by Commander Childs, of Welch Post. Dr. Breakey was toastmaster, and there were many j responses; also a paper by Mrs. T. I S. Berry, and resolution by Miss I Mabel Smart.
