In the forenoon the usual, routine,
business was trnjisneted, including the
reports from different granges.
A recess was taken and the granges
were invited to the banquet hall and
when some of the new members of the

was spread, forgot that granges al-

most everything else you might men
tion they could not wait, ns n city
dinner was generally composed of a
small bowl of soup, or maybe just pet
the dog and imagine you had eaten.
Some of our new members are prom

us and they will get used to all the
good things grangers cook.
After the dinner hour the meeting
was called to order and the worthy lec
turer took charge of tho meeting.
