injustice in assuming that I rented the
park to them or others for gain. I was
persuaded quite against my inclinations
to permit the use of the park for this
picnic, because I disapprove of Sunday
picnics and only consented on assurance
from the .committee supported by several
responsible citizens of Plattsmouth that
it should be a peaceable affair. Please
state this for me."

Yesterday closed the conlave of the

Odd Fellows. At the grounds a goodly
sized platform had been erected and seats
were provided for the largo crowd of
people, and to say that all who attended
enjoyed themselves, would be putting it
mildly, to say the least First on the
programme was music by the band.
Grand Chaplain O'Neill, of Nebraska,
then led in prayer.
The address of welcome was delivered
by Past Grand Judge S.M.Chupman in a
few well chosen words and the response
was made by Dr. J. W. Humphrey.
The address of thu day was delivered
by Rev. Frank Eyans, under themangae
ment of the Odd Fellows, was one of the
ablest ever giyen in this city upon secret
societies and its advantages, and after
holding the audience fully two hours not
one could be seen leaving, still anxious
to hear how well he run through the
ritual of the order by beginning with the
yarious degrees of the lodge and dwelling
much upon the Rebecca's, the advance
ment they were making in their efforts,
and gave much encouragement to
continue as they should, remembering
that they were the promoters of moral
and christian advantages ani while this
was done a still farther teaching was
given within the walls of the lodge rooms
and from there a worthy number of the
church circle. Along with his appeals
for the fraternity and church his witty
remarks, mingled with his eloquence was
much appreciated and many times
applauded. His explanation ot those
that oppose the ; various organizations
ws well handled and from his thirty
eight years in the ministry was able to
take observations and balance their faith
and labors. Then on the other hand

Fellow in spirit and in truth unless you
are grateful to your creator, faithful to

claiming themselyes an Odd Fellow was
only a stunbling stone to the teachings.
They disregard them, so do many of the
members of churches for this reason,
