and it was this simplicity which made
many people deem him darkly deep.
He was a frank man, so frank that he
feared not to reverse himself to gain an
end. He was a man who grew in his
ideas until, just prior to his death, he
stepped cut away beyond his party and

measure of abandonment of doctrines of

The Illinois state federation will hold
its annual meeting at Decatur, Ocotober
1G, 17 and 18. The assignment of dele
gates to the homes where they will be
entertained has been facilitated by a
system of double post cards, one of
which goes to the delegate informing
her of the name and address of her De
catur hostess, the other card going to
the entertainer, giving the name and
address of her prospective guest. Two
members of the committee on credentials
will be on board the club train from
Chicago, and credentials will be pre
sented and verified en route. The regu
lar business sessions will be held in the
First Presbyterian church, where the
art program will also be held. A grand
promenade concert will be held in the
Tabernacle, the largest building in De
catur; luncheon also will be served in
this building on Thursday and Friday.
On the first day of the convention
luncheon will be served in the woman's
club building. The press session will
be in charge of Mrs. Elia W. Peattie,
and will consist of interesting talks by
the leading newspaper writers of
the state. Among them are Inez J.
Bender of the Decatur Signet, who will
tell what she knows about "The Coun
