ccssfully carrle(lout as announced
on Monday evening tho 20th. A hluo
blizzard blow down on us during tho
day and at 4 l hi. It was so cold that
moro than half of our membership
did not conio out for fear of making
their wives and babies stole. But I
have never seen a larger a happier
or moro Jovial gathering lu Abllono
and as to the suppor I suppo&a all
had plenty to cat as no ono was heard
complain and thoro was bread meats
plckels etc. loft on tho tables.
Tho lino of march extended from
South Third to South First and as all
wore facing a florco cold cutting
wind no ordor was Kept marching six
to 15 abreast. Thd Christian church
proved to bo too small and many failed
to got seats and had to leave or stand
and there wnsbut llttlo standing room
as 200 chairs had been placed In tho
church In adltlon to tfoa regular scats.
I would bo glad to glvo a synopsis of
tho splendid talks by Col. "W. M. Lacy.

retary Walker of Dallas but to give
space for the other celebrations for-
bids. Tho songs were appropriately Illus-
trated by storeopticon views and were
so Impressive that "Blest bo tho tie
that binds our hearts in Christian
lovo" brought forth an exclamation
of Joy from one good sister.

In traveling working and talking for
tho spread and upbuilding of one of
tho greatest and grandest orders
known to modeVn times. Mr. Mason
Is not eloquent but tolls his story In
such a simple earnest way that ho
holds his hearors Bpoll-bound. At tho
close of his talk dinner was announc-

After dinner Elder Smith pastor of
tho Merkel Christian church held his
hearers for half on hour with a most
instructive and interesting talk on tho

tains south and tho Caps boys at home
making preparations for a like occas-

On the 26th last the Odd Fellows of

ber of the Abilene lodge attending.
The day was ideal. In the morning an
address was made by Bro. Davis after
which a bountiful repast was spread

themselves to their heart's content.
In tho afternoon Hon. W. L. Grogan
of Abilene addressed the meeting and
a short talk was made by Judge E. M.
Overshlner white' at intervals the Po-
tosi choir sang many beautiful songs.
It is safe to say that Potosi has one
of tho best choirs in the country. Af
ter the speaking baseball was played
between Potosl and Dudley. There
was also a morning game of baseball
betweenWest Texas Business College
team and Potosl team.
On last Saturday the Caps Lodge I.
O. O. F. celebrated their anniversary
in a basket picnic In a beautiful grove
about a nillo northwest of Cnps. In

ball between Abilene Kids and Caps

tory for the Abilene boys. Dinner was
spread underneath tho spreading elms
of the creek and tho crowd enjoyed
a most bountiful repast. In the after-
noon Hon. T. A. Bledsoe of Abileno
addressed tho crowd on the subject
of Odd Fellowship. Judge E. M. Over-
shlner also spoke after which Rev.
J. M. Dawson of the Western Evangel
