At 1 o ’clock the members met in
the hall of the Junction Grange,
where they put on their regalia,
formed in procession and marched
to tho church, headed by a band of
music, and a flag of the Great P la
ne Grange. The flag had at the
head of it the words, “ The Patrons
of Husbandly.” Underneath were
the are, plow and harrow— the em-
b’ ems of industry.
On the left

laden with fruit, were conspicuous

balanced scales, representing justice,
was a prominent feature in the cen
ter, as was u full-blown rose at the
tlie flag— indicating that
the farmer's home was to be orna

flag was well-designed, beaulifullv
executed, and much admired. "When
the members wore sealed, the baud
played an appropriate air. Mr. F.
W. Folsom, the Master of Junction
Grange, called the meeting to order
in a few appropriate remarks. The
choir, led by the Messrs. Gilbert,
and 3Iiss 31 ary Test-on the harmon
ium, sang in good style, “ W e envy
not the princely man.” Judge H. N.
Hill read the opening prayer. The
band played a second piece of music,
all of which gave a bright and cheer
ful tone to tho meeting.

increased to ten of fifteen minutes

follow the bath, and a pleasant glow
of warmth should diffuse itself over

dozen men behind her waiting for a
chance to buy their tickets; bot(
bless y o u ! that woman paid no more
attention to them than she did to
the presence of the equinoxes. F i-
n.ally she remembered she wanted a
ticket, so she felt for her pocket-
book and couldn’t find it, until she
happened to think that it was in her
reticule, which was harnessed to her
waist, and so she got hold of that
and wriggled and twisted until she
got it in front of her and managed
to find the pocket-book. Of course
it had money iu every compartment,
and the mouey was all waded and
twisted up so the book was ready to
burst. First she unrolled a lot o f
large bills and rolled them up better;
then she looked at some ones and
twos, but concluded she wouldn't
have a bill changed, so she rumaged
around and found a lot of postal
currency, but it wouldn’t pay to havo
the clerk make change for her, so
she hunted until she found a fifteen-
cent stamp, then she got out a two-
cent piece and then chased a three-
eent piece all around that pocket-
b»x>k, and when she captured it she
laiddown the twenty cents and looked
at the ticket-man as though she ex
pected to hear him thank her for
saving him all the trouble of mak
ing change, but he didn't say any
thing of the kind and didn’t even
look much as though he meant to.
Of course any body would think,
when she h td lxmght her ticket,
this female might have got out of
the way, but she wasn’t quite ready
yet. She had to look at the ticket
and put it bark in her portmomye,
and put that in her haversack, and
wriggle that back where it belonged,
and then when she got in tho narrow
passage way leading to the l«»at, she
had to stop aud go through the
whole performance again before she
could tear off the coupon to give to
the taker. Just then she saw a wo
man behind her, and she couldn't
but wait another minute to talk over
that terrible affair about poor old
Mrs Smith. Meantime the fifteen or
twenty men liekind her were talking
about her. 3Iost of what they said
is iu the Prayer Book, but not in
quite the same order. By-and-bv,
however, she remembered she wan
ted to go to Newark and the boat
was just starting, so she hud to run
