We received an annoynomous

THE OWLS ME ON
Hold an Enthusiastic Meeting
Last Night and Enjoy a
The Owls held one of the most
enthusiastic meetings in the his
tory of the local order at their
hall last evening. For some time
past the future of the local order
I of Owls has looked rather gloomy,
owing possibly to the very un
satisfactory manner in which the
initiative steps of the. order in
this city were taken. The or
ganizer being a genuine fake gave
it the first black eye, and after re
covering from this, many mem
bers lost confidence, which the
order has been slow in regaining.
Last evening, we believe we are
safe in saying, there was moro
genuine enthusiasm and interest
taken in the order than at any
time since the order was or
ganized. There was about fifty
or sixty members present at the
lodge room, where the business of
the meeting was taken up and'y('ar9' landinK n IMattsmouth in
transacted, immediately after,
which they all went to the club
rooms on Sixth street. Here one 1
of the most enjoyable hours ofj,,ome' nnd 111 1110 fal1 of 18" ho
the meeting was pulled off, a fine
roast of pork, boiled eggs, pickles
and numerous other good things
were in waiting for all. And you
bet it was appreciated.
The Owls is one of the strong
est orders in the country, and
wherever well built nests have
been formed they are doing a
great good, not only for the mem
bers, hut the community in gen
eral. A few meetings like the one
held last evening will see a nest
like I h is in Plallsmoulh. May it
ever be thus.
