SARAH KEBEKAH LODGE WO. 10,
the oldest woman's secret society of
North Platte, was organized Jan. 28th,
1876, by L W. LaMunyon. Upon elec
tion of officers James M. Bsyy now coun
ty judge, had the honor of being elected
to Ml 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 as to ways and means for pro
curing, lodge-regalia, organ, etc, which
was finally secured by Mrs. Chas. Hall
solictine faads from the Odd Fellows
and others who felt charitably inclined.
In Deoeatber, 1883, the lodge elected

An iniation fee of twenty-five cents
is charged each member and yearly
dues of fifty cents are paid semi-annually.
The Auxiliary has given a number of
suppers, socials and entertainments,
also several receptions to the members
of the Y. M. C. A.
The funds raised in this manner were
devoted to improving the rooms such as
painting, papering, cleaning, buying

If the Christian women of North
Platte understood the good that this
department of the Y. M. C. .A. work
might accomplish for our young men,
we are sure more of them would give
it their hearty co-operotion.
North Platte has a reputation for the
number of lodges and societies for wo
men as well as men, yet surely we have
no lodge in the city that should be
placed before our Ladies' Auxiliary to

Soon after this time the members,
having lost some interest in the work,
caused by some leaving town, others
not attending meetings and other reas
ons not known to the writer, this society
went down, or in other words, went to
sleep until Oct. 12th, 1889, 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
the good seed, that we, or others follow
ing in our footsteps, may reap a bounti
ful harvest. May our labor in the cause
of F., L. and T. be crowned with success
is the wish of a member.

is an endowment membership of sixty-

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 Bick 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.

on the good work we have begun.
DEGREE OF POCOHONTAS, I. O. B. M.
The Improved Order of Red Men is
the oldest American fraternal and social
organization now in existence in the
United States. It is 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 ago and has steadi
ly increased in growth and usefulness.
The name of the degree was taken from
the noted character in Indian history.

elevation of humanity and is naturally
a part of woman's work.
Our local council, Winona Council
No. 5, has been organized two years, and
has about fifty members in good stand

and social time listening to long and
short talks of chiefs and members.

It no eajBiaation that
work with the Beane it haa-
to command and the size of the order
than the Relief Corps. Its membership
is composed of able, broad-minded, gen
erous and loyal women. Women who
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 .of
our army nurses are in the ranks of the
living, yet they are honored by the mem
bers of 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
aue love of country in the minds of
their children as well as those whose
noblewomen who gave up their hus
bands and sons to their country in its
hour ot 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
$1,50951. Through the relief fund of
the Etate 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
The 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
show to the world that the sacrifices ot
the soldiers is held' in grateful remem
brance in their hearts, and they are
proud to be called the Auxiliary to the
Grand Army of the Republic.

BAPTIST YOUKOPEOKiEa' UNION.
The B. Y. P. U., of North Platte, was
reorganized May 1894, with seven active
members; the ' present membership is
thirty-five.' A similar society was organ
ized at Herehey Nov. 1894. with a mem
bership of fifteen; present membership
fifty-four. Oar outlook is hopeful and
much interest is taken in the meetings.
The hope of the church and the hope
of the world is with the young. If the
young people of this generation could be
saved frorn intemperance- and profanity
and vice and immorality, and could be
imbued with faith in the Savior, and en
listed in the work of saving others, in a
few years this nation would not only be
called a christian nation -from sentiment
or as a complimeufbut it would be such
in deed and in truth. If the young who
are rapidly coming upon the stage of ac
tion could be schooled to become faith
ful workers for Christ, only a few years
would be needed-until this world that
now "iieth in wickedness" could be laid
as a sparkling jewel at the feet of the
world's Redeemer. An Englishman
once said: "You can make something
out of a Scotchman if you catch him
young." Knowing' that the minds and
destinies of youth are easily turned this
way and that by gentle influences, we
should endeavor to, give them the right
trend in early life. Save the boy or girl
and you save' the man or woman.
