their first meeting in the Presbyterian
church parlors, last Saturday after
noon, October 1, 11XM. As oflicers
were elected at the close of last year

Mrs. Riddle, Mrs. Wharton aud

had to be returned on account of the

The Calendar committee was re-
qui stod to report at next meeting iu
order to map out the year's work.
The report from the diffeient de
partments was as follows: Music
department to meet with Mrs. IL C.
Kinney the second Friday of each
month ; literary department to meet
with Mra W. M. Hair the third Fri
day of each mouth; Home and House
hold Economics and HTgiene depart
ment to meet with Mrs. John Locas
next Thursday afternoon at 8 o'clock,
at which time a practical demonstra
tion in cooking will be given; the
parliamentary department to meet the
first Tuesdays iu t le month. A great
deal of interest was manifested aud
the indications are that the club will
have another successful year's work.
It seems that the benefits of such a
club have never been fully appre
ciated by the ladies of Grants Pass
and it seems that everyone who
wishes to improve or better them
selves should jolu with the club and
esecially attend some department.
The Literary department will take
up a reading course on Gorman Liter
ature, in connection with the Uer-
man tuusio which will be studied ty
the Music department. Everyone
should avail themselves of this op
portunity presented and study witli
the different departments. The next
club mooting will bo held the first
Saturday in November.
