Article C.C.Caller of 24 May 1901

 

The old Bay View cemetery is getting a thorough cleaning up this week, the best it has had in a long time.  The idea at first was to clean the walks, also the graves of those whose relatives have moved away.  We are requested now to say to parties living here and having private enclosures, that they can have them cleaned free of charge, if they will go to the cemetery and instruct the men at work there, and who will be there for two or three days yet.
