The woman's Bryan club has decided
to struggle along, meeting now and
then, awaiting that indefinite day
when something' may happen.
A week or so ago it was u difficult
matter to hold a meeting. A few of
the members gathered and it was de
cided to make an effort extraordinary
to gather in the followers in sufficient
strength to disband. Accordingly the
word was sent around.
Three or four days later the club
held another session. From the begin
ning two factions were apparent.
In the treasury was the sum of JSO
gathered for campaign purposes by the
faithful. Some of the members want
ed to donate this money to sweet char
ity and adjourn sine die. Mr. Bryan

was the only proper remedy.
But Mrs. Belle G. Blgelow said nay.

support In the Third great battle.
So the suspended animation people

club is still numbered among the or

strife and the consequent branching
off of the two organizations.
