Ceremonies attending the dedication of Yale Cemetery, Schenectady, with the By-Laws, etc, of the Association. This is a highly interesting pamphlet. The Rev. Julius H. Seelye made an oration of great beauty and interest. These cemeteries are public teachers, if properly cared for, in matters of neatness and in planting. Trees placed in them have a chance of permanency, and the selection of them is of great importance. The best, the most beautiful, the fragrant, and those of historical interest, must not be overlooked. Without care, cemeteries had better not be established.
