wcs n very mixed ono from a social point

of worktngmen In various walka , but atlll
Ihcre was en excellent sprinkling of the

representation of the feminine portion of
The stage also was well filled. This sec
tion of the audience was of a mixed char
acter , loo. The majority consUtcd of thcae
n the humbler positions of life , but there
wcro a number who are prominent In the
eyes of the people. Among these were :
fudge Wakoley , Thomas Kllpatriek , Edward
tcsewater. Colonel AUin , Frank E. Moorcn
'olico Judge Gordon , City Cleric Hecch
ligby and County Clerk Jledfield. In front
sat Dr. Oronhyatckha , with A. E. Stevenson ,
ho American agent of the order , ou one
aide , and E. M. Hall , chairman ef the mcet-
ng , on the other. A speaker's stand , deco
rated wlih.llags and horns , some pictures
and other adornments , gave something of a
; ala appearance to the stage.
Chairman Hall opened the program with
i few remarks of Introduction , In which he
\\plclned the object of the gathering. Ho
poke of the birth of the order , nnd of IU
truggles for existence until It wwi taken
mid of by a "North American gentleman , "
he speaker of the evening who had made
t 'ono of the leading fraternal beneficiary
orders In the world. Ho stated that the
nidlcnco had been called together under
he auspices of the local courts to give this
jucst nn opportunity to extol the merits of
Hefore the nddrcfis of the evening a ahort
Itcrary and musical progiam of great cx-
ellcnce was rendered. Llttlo Virginia
Icrgci , a sweet llttlo oonsstress and
ctrcijs , opened with a pretty song , "Sweet
Junch of Daisies , " which she rendered with
emarkablo expression for a child of her
ge. She was compelled to respond to an
ncore , and gave a cute llttlo selection ,
Thlfl Llttlo Pig Went to Market. " Harry
' . Hurkley sang In his luual excellent man-
er n baritone solo. Dexter Smith's "Let
,11 , Obey. " Mrs. G. W. Johnston , the well
nown dinner , rendered ft double number
vlth great grace , "Arise. Como Forth , " and
ho "Cradle Song , " both from Uleo. The
rogram was rounded out with n recitation
rora Mrs. K. E. Sumlerland , who gave
cry satisfactorily a difficult selection , and
vas compelled to nwnvcr an encore with
nothcr In nn entirely different strain.
When this program was finished Chairman
Inll Introduced tt-o speaker to the audience
i very complimentary terms. Ho gave a
rlcf out line of his life , from the time ho was
Httlo Indian. Even then ho showed his
allber by outdoing all other llttlo Indian
oya In athletic sports. Ho spoke of the
UtlnguUhed man's early school training and
f his subsequent study nt Oxford inilver-
, ty , from which Institution ho graduated
Ith honors. Mr. Hall stated that the In-
lan's llfo was nn example of the success
uo to the principle that If "a thing was
orth doing at all. It was worth doing well. "
Dr. Oronhyatckha spoke on "Forestry , " and
ovoteJ his remarks to the order ho repro-
cnted , lie had a hard subject to handle be-
> ro the audience that faced him , Inasmuch as
10 majority were uonmoinbcrs , but ho sue-
coded In holding their attention. This was
no In great measure to his ready wit. Ho
ictchcd brlelly the history of the order , from
B origin In 187-t , spoke of the troubled that
iBued on the defalcation of the grand trcas-
rer , which culminated In tha separation of
10 body Into the Illinois Foresters , bin own
rdcr , and the aubccnucnt growth of the lat
er until It had attained n membership of
00.000 and a reserve fund of over $2,000,000 ,
"I toll my Canadian audiences that the
roubles occurred because the grand trcaa-
rcr was n Yankee , and not a Canadian,1'
ild the speaker. "I would not dare say that
oforo thin uiidlenco. I wilt say that they
ccurrod because that official was a white
mn , and not an Indian. "
The speaker then tipoUo of the benefits of
to order the free medical attendance , the j
nick benefits , the Insurance , the total ill
ability hcnpfila , the funeral benefits.
; ' "It l strange , " said the speaker , "th
Foresters are more nmcnnblo to medic
treatment than the ordinary citizen , becau
It takes physicians only one-half the tin
to cure the former. Wo have como to tl
conclusion , too , that ultimately there wl
ho no deaths In the order. The rate has d
cronscd from 10.3 In 1SS1 , to fi.4 In ISO
Remember that the death rate In this sta
la rl.'fhti'cn ' In 1.000. and , therefore , you ct
rile only one-third ns often as nn ordinal
citizen. If you are n Foreuler. "
The speaker found only ono defect In h
crdor , and that was that women were ni
admitted. This he hoped to see remedied I
the future. Ho opined that If It were , aul
ordlnato lodged would hc > compelled to In
a sot of slilo saddles , although ho was nt
so Biire about this since ho has seen so nine
