The organization for the canvass

All the teams of solicitors are entitled
to great praise for the efficiency they

made of t!ve efforts of the ladies, who

hibited the skill of Mexico In the
culinary art. On Thursday the ladles
of the Catholic church came to the
front with boiled beef and dumplings
in a style that br.ought to mind our
mothers' best efforts In the days of
auld lang syne. This luncheon was
directed by Mrs. Wolf of the Depot
hotel. On Friday the lunch was
spread by the ladles of the Congrega
tional church. This was a fish din
ner and aroused enthusiasm for Its
excellence. The ladles of the Meth
odist church occupied the front on
Saturday with a chicken dinner with
dumplings. If the Methodists live
like that at all times, almost the writ
er .is persuaded to be a Methodist.
But taken as a whole, and If one
intended to be guided by these lunch
eons in the selection of the church

will bo confuslng-they are each par

nirt surprised that the Methodist min

It was good.
Tho ladles of the Baptist church
decorated the banquet rooms and
demonstrated their patriotism as well
as artistic taste. Flags nnd flowers
in profusion were woven to thrill all
who were fortunate to feast in such
environment. Miss Lillian Patterson
must not be forgotten. With un
bounded enthusiasm, taste, tact and
talent she presided ovor each day's
entertainment In such a manner as to
win universal applause. The lady

uniforms and with dignity carried
each day's effort to a successful and
