Joe Gulp has sold his barber shop to John Turner and is engaged in organizing a Klondike syndicate. The Michigan avenue club is the name of an organization of ladies who will study current events this winter. The officers are: President, Mary J. Washburn; vise president, Mrs, Lottie Burns; secretary, Mrs. Anna Wright; treasurer, Mrs. Ida Michael. Secret Organizations, Oolong aod Other Organizations are Many. The numerous orders and secret organizations in this city which doubtless exceed that of any other city In the state in number, with reference to population, are gradually increasing in membership and as a result nearly every hall In the city is occnplad bv the numerous clubs, local unions, beneficiary societies, etc In Tact the main halls, which have been secured as headquarters for meeting places are in use every night in the week. It is almost an impossibility to realize the strength of the fraternal bonds in the city, unless one devotes a great deal of time at night, when there Is an almost continual stream of people hustling in various directions, soon to be lost to view by going up some stairway. Oftentimes the words, "This is meeting night," are to oe heard addressed to some brother or comrade. A peculiar but interesting fact is that ladies play an important part and a large portion of the lodges have auxiliaries which are invariably made up of ladies who display an equal share of interest and earnestness, and it may be said, are willing to devote more time to lodge work than the Irmer sex. "The number of clubs and societies, consisting chiefly of the fair sex, is much larger than is thought for by the average person," stated a popular lady yesterday, who is a member of several prominent and well known clubs and societies. If yon could but realize the fact that on an average of one-fourth of the large number of ladles in the city are members of some lodge, order or society and some of them from three to five, you could draw some conclusion as to the extent cf socle- tary relations in Logansport. Peace Sunday.
