The object of the organization is to
assist the Association in its work among
young men by helping to make the
rooms attractive and homelike and " to
aid in receptions and social work.
It is the duty of each member to seek
to advance the work of the Association
by endeavoring to bring young men un

ty judge,-had the honor
to fill the chair of Noble Grand the first
term. The membership numbered at
this time about thirty-three. There be
ing neither membership fees or dues
wherewith to "create a fund, the ques
tion arose si to ways and means for pro
curing lodge regalia, organ, etc., which
was finally secured by Mrs. Chaa. Hall
solicting funds from the-Odd Fellows
and others who felt charitably inclined.
In December, 1883, the lodge elected
Mrs..Chas, Hall to the chair of N, G.,
she being the first lady elected to fill
that office in Sarah Rebek&h Lodge No.
Soon after this time the members,
having lost sbmeiat erest in the work,
not attending meetings and offier! reas
ons not known p the writer, this society
went down, or in other words, "went' to
sleep until Oct. 12th; 198Q, when.it
awoke and was reorganized with a mem
bership of eleven, as follows: Sisters,
Hall, Hoagland, Stevens and Walsh,
Brothers Hoagland, Hall, Walsh, Adams,
Smith, Warner and Klein. Since that
time it has continued to grow and
shows on our roll to day a membership
of one hundred.
In giving a history of this lodge it is
not necessary to speak of what our aims
and objects are, but will close with the
hope that this lodge may go on with the
good work so well begun, not faltering
by the way side, but continuing to sow

aid and comfort to the enemies of the
Union, who would perpetuate the prin

of sixteen years. It is impressed upon

SIGNET CHAPTER, KO. 55, O. E. S,
The Order jot the Eastern Star,
though not a part of the Ancient Order
of Free and Accepted Masons is closely
related to it by reason that only masons,
- their wives, daughters, mothers, widows
: and sisters are eligible. This order ex-
pie ior tne purpose of being a co-worker
with the Masonic brother, in provid
ing for the welfare of families of'
Master Masons, and promulgating the'
principles of love, relief and truth.

As a social organization the Eastern
Star-has no peer. Signet Chapter can
- certainly boast of what it has gained
with a charter membership of sixty-five
the largest in the world at that time
under supreme jurisdictions Now there
is an endowment membership of sixty
two, and twenty social. It holds a ban
ner from the supreme hive in the state
and-we hope to keep it.
There has been one death in our
hive the beneficiaries receiving $1,000,
the deceased having paid in only $11.40.
Seeing how kind and faithful our mem
bers were, especially on sick committee',
one lady was heard to say that she was
more a Maccabee than ever; and so we
hope that it will win the name of the
"finest and best" in our land.
Drill in the flooe work is now in pro
gress and we hope to make our hive
pleasant and attractive.
The attendance has been exception
ally good. Any lady of good character
may become a member. Our meetings
are held on the second and fourth Sat
urdays at 2:30 p. m. We extend a cor
dial invitation to the ladies of North
Platte to join us and help in carrying
on the good work we have begun.
DEGREE OF POCOHONTAS, I. O. R. M.
The Improved Order of Red Men is
the oldest American fraternal and social
organization now in existence in the
United States. It iB founded on the
customs and traditions of the aborigines
of our country, preserving the character
and peculiarities of the Indian race.
The degree of Pocohontas was organ
ized about ten years xsgo and has steadi
ly increased in growth and usefulness.
The name of the degree was taken from
the noted"" character in Indian history,
Ppcohontos, who so nobly proved her
constant friendship and hospitality to
the pale faces.
Among the objects of this degree are
the moral advancement of the members
and friends, the promotion of social e-
joyment, bury the dead and educate the'
orphan; all of which work tends to the
elevation of humanity and is naturally
a part of woman's work.

The work of relief is managed prin
cipally by the relief committee, which is
selected with the utmost care, by the
Corps president It has done, a grand,
noble work, in relieving the needy and
distressed this winter, spending more
money than ever in the same length of
time. (From the time of the organiza
tion of the Corps up to the present time
the receipts have been $1,233.56, and
expenditures $1,105.56. The esU-
atedvalue ofrelief other than money
ias been about $500.)
There is iro organization that does
more charity work with the means it has
to command and the size of the order
than the Belief Corps. Its membership
is composed of able, broad-minded, gen
erous and loyal women. Women wno
know neither friend nor foe in the hour
of distress, but who are always ready to
extend a helping hand to the needy ones,
smoothing the pillow of the sick, and
comforting the dying and distressed,
their works are shose of love, and their
deeds of kindness can only be num
bered by the applications for help and
the opportunities for honoring the mem
ory of their heroic dead.
While only a few, comparatively lof
our army nurses are in the ranks of the
living, yet they are honored by the mem- r
hereof this most worthy and patriotic
band of women, as they should be who
rendered loving service to. their country
in the trying times of the sixties. The
loyal women of this order who had no
loved ones in the Rebellion exert them
selves to inculcate lessons of patriotism
ane love of country in the minds of
their children as well as those whose
noble women who gave up their hus
bands and sons to their country in its
hour of peril.
It is through the exertions and influ
ence of the G. A. R. that this unselfish
army of the Relief Corps are enabled to
teach allegiance, to the United States
and encourage universal liberty and
equal rights to all men.
.-The work of the Department (State)"
is much similar in organization to the
local organizations. Its membership
numbers 3,887. The treasury contains
$1,50921. Through the relief fund of
the state a great many cases are aided,
and comforted that it would be impossi
ble for a local Corps to take charge of.
The national membership is 131,081
Fhe amount of money expended for re
lief for 1894, was $170,58436. In accumu
lating and expending this large sum of
money, the noble hearted W.R C. women

the soldiers is held in grateful remem
brance in their hearts, and they are
