Harding grange is the best equipped

which helped to make the county meet
ing all the more a success in all ways.
Owing to the bad condition of the
roads, and long distance some had to
come, many were late in arriving.
Many would have done better had they
did asthe master; come theday before.
Nevertheless a good time waa had by all.
The beet of attention and interest was
shown. The leading feature of the meet
ing was the life insurance, which is be
ing started in this state. Nearly all are
taking out policies, and it is sure to be a
success. As to the cheapness andfra
ternal plan, it has no equal.
As is always the case, a large number
were let into the secrets of the order,
which was followed by a fine banquet
which fairly made the table groan under
its many delicious things so appeasing
to the appetites of the hungry hayseeds.
A. F. Miller, of Sell wood, was in at
