The Odd Fellows were celebrating the 78th anniversary of the founding of that order, and Wesley was taking care of the multitude that came, and doing it after the most approved methods. The town was gaily decorated with bunting, an arcb was erected over one of the thief streets of the town, also decorated with the national colors, and the citizens of the town were making unusual efforts to see that nothing was omitted to make the visitors comfortable and happy. They succeeded admirably. The day was raw and cold, so unlike what a day in June ought to be as to cause general comment. In spite of this, however, the lodges of the district were well represented, and the crowd must have numbered upward of a thousand. Algont, was very much in evidence, large delegations going over on both the 7:30 and 10:45 trains in the morning. At 11 o'clock the regular business meeting was held in the lodge room, and lasted for an hour. Contrary to the usual custom the officers for the ensuing year were not chosen, for the reason that no town put in an application for the meeting next year, and the officers are usually elected from the town where the meeting is to be held. The presiding officers of the various lodges of the district will receive applications and make a selection at a future date. A parade which made a formidable showing was made at noon, the line being formed on the south side of town. From there they marched east and north to the main street, and then to the banquet hall. The line was headed by the Wesley cornet band, which rendered good music. The Ladies' Aid society prepared the banquet, which. was spread in F. Hume's new building erected for a lumber shed, but which is a substantial structure of ample dimensions. Nothing was lacking in the spread set before the people whose appetites seemed to have been sharpened by the morning exercise, and they stowed away the good things in a manner which indicated their appreciation of the ladies' efforts. Following the banquet came the literary feature. Mayor John H. Ward welcomed the visitors in well- chosen words, and E. H. Clarke of Algona lodge responded. Past Master Tilton of Ottumwa gave the chief address of the day, reviewing the work and progress of Odd Fellowship since its foundation, and giving much of the history of the order which was of general interest, not alone to members but to outsiders as well. Brief remarks were made by Ex-Secretary of State MoFarland, Mr. Dawson and others. The Wesley glee club gave several good selections, and the meeting adjourned for another year. Altogether the meeting was a splendid success, and those who were there had an opportunity to witness what out- neighboring town of Wesley can really do when she sets about it. NOTES. Had the weather been propitious the crowd would have been twice as large. Our whilom Kossuthite, Ike Sweigard, now of Garner, was an enthusiast in the "chain gang." Ike has aged some since he used to help run Kossuth politics, but his smile Is as genial as ever. Mayor Ward, in his speech of welcome, presented the visitors with a big key, made for the occasion, which, he assured them, would gain them admission to everything in town except the jail, The key to that he would keep until the or. wd was gone. The invocation by Rev, Plummer was a vigorous production, and gave a good idea of how it came about that he could make so good a contest for his right to hold religious meetings in a school house. There was nothing the matter with that prayer, not even Its length. Al. Adams was up from Humboldt, By dint of extra precaution our reporter kept him from making a speech, but there was no holding him when it came to the singing, He insisted he had a right to warble, and he knows by heart every ode on the cards, So we bad to let him sing. sister, Mrs. S.
