At a regular meeting of Wildey
Lodge 44, I. O. O. F. on Tuesday,
January 24tb, 1882, in the order of
business, "under the good of the
order," Bro. H. J. Hudson stepped
forward and presented a beautiful
gold-headed ebony cane, handsome
ly engraved with a presentation in
scription, .accompanied by the fol
lowing address :
"Bro. Charles A. Speice: Your
Brothers of Wildey Lodge, No. 44,
have for some time contemplated
making an acknowledgement of your
past services in the order of Odd
Fellows, and while we realize your
aversion to notoriety or ostentation,
we have decided to make the pre
sentation, and ask your favorable
acceptance of this our offering, and
while we anticipate your answer,
that you have only tried to do your
duty, It is a pleasant task in these
times of general laxity in our social
life, to approbate the man who
makes personal sacrifice, in his ef
forts to " fraternize the family of
man." Wildey Lodge feels honored
in the advancement of her represent
atives in the Grand and Sovereign
Lodges ol the I. O. O. F. We well
know that it is only the Odd Fellow
who is imbued with the spirit and
genius of our order, can advance to
such trusted and honored positions,
as have been conferred upon you, by
"May you long live to inculcate
and exemplify the paternal princi
ples of our beloved order, and as we
discover 'the weight of years' ad
vancing upon you, we have procured
this staff as a memorial of our es
teem and confidence, and present it
with the hope that it may be a talis
man during during your remaining
years, associated with new incentives
to F., L. and T. Dear Brother, I
now present this cane on behalf ol
its donors, and may the hauds that
present it, and the band that receives
it, ever be. ready to respond to hu
manity's needs, wherever a true
Odd Fellow may be found."
Brother Speice, who ie usually
ready at reply, was so completely
nonplussed, his tongue played him
such truant, that bis present ors did
enjoy hiB blushes, stammering and
awkward handling of the cane, and
only those who have been in similar
positions know bow to appreciate
his embarrassment. Speedily recov
ering himself, he in a few well chos
en words, tendered his thanks to the
Brothers for their' confidence and
esteem ; that he should indeed treas
ure it as a talisman, so beautifully
expressed by Bro. Hudson. Broth
ers, I can 6ay no more at this time.
T heartily thank you.
mhe Journal adds that the hand
some present was furnished by F.
Brodfeuhrer, at its actual cost.
Facts aid Figure.
AH of us wish to get the' best re
turns possible for our capital and
labor invested. Can we get the best
from stock raising alone, or from
stock raising and dairying.' 'We will
see. Here is a man who raises stock
alone. He raises one calf every
year, worth, say ten dollars; for ih
interest and keep of the said cow he
gets the calf. Aud here is a man
who is in t'te dairy business as well
as stock raising. He has a common
cow ; she will give about nine quarts
per day, which will be equal to 20
poundp, for a period of eight months
from the time she has herculf,wbich
wiiramnunt to 4800 pounds of milk
during 'the season, which at 65. cent 8
per hundred will amount to $31:20,
then he raises the calf on the skim
milk, which is worth $10; this makes
$41.20 for capijal and labor invested,
includiug milking and feeding and
hauling the milk to creamery. Now,
here is a man who lives too Tar from
a creamery to haul hid 'milk; he
The creatuteryy furnish
him with the proper cans for raising
cream, and send a man to measure
and collect it to be measured by do
gree a 'degree coh'sUtutjng cream
sufficient to make one pound of but
ter or two inches on the cans used.
He has a common cow that will milk
20 pounds per day, or, 4800 pounds
per season, taking 3) degrees for
100 pounds, which will be 168 de
gress during the season, at 15 cents
per degree, amounting to $25.20
Then he raises bis calf ou the skim
milk, having it on his. farm ; the cal
ls worth $10. There is $35 20 for
capital invested and labor of milking
and feeding the animals.
The foregoing figures are on a very
low basis. Creameries can generally
afford to pay more in fall and winter
than' in spring and summer. Any
other information desired . ,by those
interested will be gladly furnished.

Mb. Editor: Please allow me a
little space in your journal to drop
a few random school, thoughts.
I have been looking ahead for
several years-past for the time to
arrive when there could be a school
established, in the city of Columbus,
where all our-boys and jrirls of suit
able age, can acquire a practical
business education. 1 can conceive
the time near at hand. In order to
hasten it, I would suggest that
neighborhood educational meetings
be held in private houses all over
the city. First here, and then there.
Let the mothers, and all the women
take an active, part, whether they
are voters or not Sometime before
our annual school meeting hold one
or two central meetings, where all
can meet, and talk up our education
al wants, "big and strong," keeping
in view, who shall be the teacher of
the business school, and what shall
his or her other, duties be ?

while they were enjoying their re
past, the old folks discussed their
viands in a very satisfactory manner.
After this came recitations by the
children, interspersed by vocal and
instrumental music by resident tal
ent. The director then, in behalf of
the parents and the School Board,
thanked the teacher for the able and
impartial manner in which she has
performed her duties, aud also
praised the scholars for their good
conduct and studious habits. It was
very plain to all present that teacher
and school were in perfect harmony.
