PORTLAND GETTING READY.
Plnaa Already Itolaar Mad For th
Eatvrtalnmeat of Xatloaal Grass.
Oregon and Washington are Already
.huBtlliig to give the national jrrange a
grand reception in November, 1004. In
the first place, a cumpalKA for In
creased membership ia now being con
ducted by State Lecturer J. II. T.
Smith of Washington, and likewise In
Oregon there will be a atrong effort
made to show a large percentage of In
crease wbeu the national body con
venes. Kvenlng Star grange, fa 27, of Tort
Innd. Ore., la alive to the situation. A
resolution waa adopted at a recent
meeting congratulating State Master
Leedy In securing the next meeting for
Portland, And a
started by the
grange to give

ATance.J gested that Ore
gon and Washington combine and make
A grjind display of farm produce. From
tho Portland Oregonian we lenrn that'
there arc some up to data grangers In'
that locality. Ewnrtsvlllo grange owns
ten acres of land and has built a flue!
halL In this ball all the socuil func
tions of the neighborhood ore held, as
well as the regular bualness meetings
of the grange. A Thanksgiving din
ner, at which more than 300 were fed.
was served In this bait. This grange
has established an annual three days'!
picnic, with' a fair and live stock show,
where the best stock In Whitman couo-'
ty ia shown and liberal premiums are
awarded. . .
Pine Grove grange, at Albino, Is the
secoiTd oldest In the county and has A
membership of l'40. This grange is out
of tlebt nnd has a substantial fund in
the treasury, which will 'probably be
tivrwl lifaltft a finll TltA fnanrA la 1
keeping clear of politics and devoting
Its energies to bettering the social and
financial condition of -the farmers. Its
work is largely social and cducationaL
Tho first grange was organized in this
county about three .years uo.
A Means of CommuBlcatlo Dcrweem
State and Sobordinat Graasrea.
There is growing need of a means
of communication between state lec
turers 'and lecturers of .subordinate
granges. Ko method is so inexpensive
and efllencious as a monthly bulletin,
in which the state lecturer may com
municate with the subordinate lectur
ers on assigned topics for discussion,
impart Information on matters of pres
ent or future Interest and thus make
It possible for the subordinate grange
to keep constantly In touch with the
state organization. As an example of
what we are speaking of we may re
fer, with high commendation, to the
Michigan state grange lecturers' bul
letin, edited by Mrs. F. D. Saunders of
Rockford, Mich. The advantage of Is
suing such a bulletin regularly Is that
It can be entered In the malls as sec
ond class mail matter and thns be en
titled to the pound rates of postage
Vermont In Line.
O. J. Bell, master of the Vermont
state grange, says that the attendance,
at tho recent session of that body was
tho largest for twenty years and It
was one of the most successful meet
ings ever held. There are 110 subordi
nate granges in the Btate, ulfiety-five
being represented at the state meeting.
There nro twelve Pomouas In the state.
Worthy Master Bell's annual address
laid great stress en the need of legisla
tion In the farmer's behalf. Governor
J. C. McCullough was the principal
speaker at the public meeting. Pro
fessor Morse of South Paris, Me., well
known In grango circles, was' humorist
of the occasion..
The Grange Mast Do Things.
P. A. Dcrthtck. master of the Ohio
Btate grange, Is father of theso weighty
words: "If a subordinate grange wishes
to exert a commanding influence In Its
community it must hare a good finan
cial footing. If it deserves to per
suade men and women to join, it must
have something to join." The next thing
It must have, or the first thing, we
would say, is an interesting and profit
yielding programme. Yon . haven't
much of n grange if It Isn't doiug some
Nearly 0,000 Patrona la One County.
Jefferson county, N. Y., Is probably
the bauner grange county In the United
Stated. It has 5,020 Tatrons In thirty
two subordinate granges. All New Jer
sey has only 0,000. Moreover, the state
grange dues of every subordinate-
grange are paid to date. Jefferson Is
necessarily Influential In the grange of
fairs of the Empire State. ,
The gain In the Order's membership
in . Pennsylvania last year was over
5,000, thirty new granges having been
organized. As an instance of th6ir pro-
eresslveuess Cambria countv tout be
cited, where there -are twenty -two
granges, sixteen of width own their
own halls, valued at $23,000.
