The convention pioper convened in
the Congregational chinch of this city
at 8.30 Wednesday morning. Conven
tion culled to order by Mrs. Maud C.
Harrison, state president and dovo
Monnl exercises conducted by Mrs.
Flora W. Jones, tirst vice-president,
after which Mrs Bhiuch Thomas of
McCook rendered a very pleasing solo.
The address of welcome was deliv
ered by Miss KUaCook in a very happy
and pleasing manner:
Had there been some act assigned
me to express the welcome Chapter V
leeN for the Nebraska Grand Chapter
I lel that I could have performed it
more acceptably tlmn by attempting
M express in words our happiness in
being able to entertain you. We are
truly glad to havo joii heie, and we

the delightful lriend-diii . we expect
to form will compensate u-. for t lie

Ot couise, coming o soon after
spriug houseeleuning, we have scarcely
had time to embellish our complexions,
i-o kindly take for gran'ed that the (
shine on our countenances is radiated i
hospitality; if wo havo forgotten to re
move the silverware trom under the
guest-room mattress do not allow the
Joss of one night's rest to worry you,
but sit up ftnd admire the new wall
paper! Should there be somothing on
the menu which yoji cannot read as

say under your breath and in y -ur most
cheerful manner: "If it wasn't for the

wasn't for the eggs." And should you
have spring lamb for dinner be not
unkind enough to inquire "which
Ah! three years ago, when we first
laid our plans we should have en
tertained you! It would bo unkind to
tell you what you missed by not com
ing then, even had I words to describe
the fairyland into which wo would
have transformed this old town where
Chief Red Cloud ruled his tribes so
many years ago. The streets ablaze
with beautiful festoons of colored elec
tric lights, noted bauds of musicians
filling tho air with entrancing melo
dies and (lowers and entertainment to
overflowing! For your personal con
venience there was to be an automo
bile at the service of each of you, and
ice cream and cold drinks were to bo
btrvo'l between each number on the
president's program. As for souvenirs
they were dainty marguerites of gold,

A year later wo modified our plans.
The convention dates were fet for
moonlight nights with the idea of util
izing the electricity consumed in il
lumination in propelling fans. Then
statistics convinced us that horses
were safer than automobiles and wo
feared the serving of rofroshmonts so
frequently would impede tho despatch
of business. J no money appropriated
lor souvenirs was turned into the meal
fund with instructions for the com
mittee to buy Lobster Noubnrg.
But times havo changed ami wo havo
changed. Charles Wagner's intluenco
is felt and now the simple lifo is the
only lifo for tis. It boing dangerous,
we have d'scarded tho use of electric
ity in all forms; we are reviving tho
lost art of walking and tho committee
ou meals reported at our last meeting
that they had ! oked up Lobster Neil
burg and found it to be a dish ordered
at restaurants by people who usually
have beans at home; and who are we
that wo should sorvu you lobster?
