Some Suggestions That May B Useful
to Grange Officer.
The Importance of utilizing time and
the extravagance of allowing it to go
to waste are well stated by Jennie
Buell of Michigan, in which the fol
lowing reasons for time running to
waste are stated:
"When the grange is not called to or
der on tlmo because some officer or
leading person is not present
.When the stewards distribute badges,
song books, et, after the gavel has
fallen instead of before.
While the chorister selects songs
after they are called for.
YhIle the secretary shuffles his pa
pers over or stops to write a receipt
after the order of reading the minutes
Is reached.
When n committee -audits a bill or
passes upon an application for mem
bership after reports of committees
aro called.
When business that might bo refer
red to commlttoo Is transacted by the
grange, -especially with prolonged dis
cussion. Whon members speak upon questions
that have not been brought properly
before the grange by motion.
When a grango stands still while the
paraphernalia and decorations aro
gathered and prepared for initiation.
When members are allowed to wan
der In discussion in the lecture hour.
When matters foreign to the time or
place are Introduced and delay the
closing past the time fixed.

atlons his paper made against the for
mer'B character. Editor William II
Lallan of the New York Sun is also
brought into the controversy by a ref
erence to him in the president's letter
to Mr. Foulke, and another New York
paper, the World, which gave publicity
to the charges during the recent cam
paign, now asks for a congressional in
vestigation of the matter.
Mr. Foulke, to whom the president's
much discussed letter was addressed
and by whom it was given out for pub
lication, has been a civil service com
talssloner of the United States and is
widely known as scholar, reformer ana
author. Mr. lloosevelt's friendship for
Mr. Foulke dates from the time when
the latter served under President
George William Curtis as a member of
the executive committee of the Nation
al Civil Service Reform league in
1885-0. Mr. foulke was chairman of
the special commission appointed by
the league to Investigate the condition
of the civil service under President
Harrison. He was born in New York
city In 1818 and was graduated from
Columbia university in the class ahead
of Beth Low, with whom he has since
been much associated in civil service
reform work. He is also a graduate of
the Columbia School of Law and for
some time practiced law successfully
la Indiana. He was once president of
Swarthmore college. It wns during bis
service In the Indiana legislature that
he became Interested in civil service re
form, and it was in 1002 that President
Roosevelt made him a member of the
national civil service commission. Since
1860 Mr. Foulke has been engaged
largely In literary pursuits and is the
anther of "Slav and Saxon," a biog
raphy of Oliver P. Morton, war gov
ernor of Indiana, and a romance of
Yucatan at the time of the Spanish In
vasion called "Maya."
There were a great many pleasant
greetings between fellow lawmakers

Plans For Memorial Building on Slto
of Martyr President's Birthplace.
The birthplace of Abraham Lincoln
Is rapidly being transformed Into a na
tional shrine. The plans for a memo
rial building inclosing the cabin have
Anally been adopted, and the program
for its dedication, which will take place
on the centEunry, Feb. 12, has been
tentatively made out. The writer re
cently interviewed Itlchard Lloyd
Jones, the secretary of the Lincoln
Farm association, and can therefore
give the latest definite information. The
final drawing by the architect has been
made and accepted. Tractlcally the
sole exhibit in the memorial building
is the birthplace cabin, which stands
la the exact spot it occupied when Lin
coln was born. For a little space about
the cabin the memorial building Is
without a floor, leaving the ground as
nearly as possible In its original state.
The edifice, with its classic columns,
stands on n low hill, being approached
by a' broad sweep of steps, at the bot
tom of which is an extensive plant.
From this plaza runs down the old
path to the famous rock spring. Two
turnpikes and the spur of a railroad
lead to the farm, but outside of these
Improvements, which are designedly
plain and simple, In keeping with Lin
coln's own life and character, every
thing Is left as before. The farm will
still be used as a farm, the trees will
be undisturbed, even to one old, half
dead apple tree, believed to be the last
of the orchard of Thomas Lincoln, the
father of the president. Despite its
simplicity, however, the memorial
building will be an imposing sight
amid Its humble surroundings.
The program for Its dedication In
cludes addresses by Governor Joseph
W. Folk of Missouri, president of the
Lincoln Farm association; Governor
Augustus K. Willson of Kentucky, Sec
retary of War Luke E. Wright, speak
ing on behalf of the Confederate vet
erans, and probably Justice Oliver
Grange Deputies In Michigan and How
They Are Compensated.
The compensation of the grange dep
uties In Michigan is figured on a lib
eral basis. Each grange pays the or
ganizing deputy $20, of which $15 goes
for the charter. Then by application
of a series of bounties, ottered by the
state grange, if the organizing deputy.
reports five granges he receives $22 for
each, and in like Increased proportion
for ten granges he will get $20 each.
Then there is a grand prize of $100 to
nny deputy who will organize and in
struct twenty-five granges during the
year. And in order, to increase their
efforts to get the full twenty-five the
deputies are given a repetition of the
prizes for the second ten granges. So
that for twenty granges they would
receive $520, and for twenty-five
granges, which would entitle them to
the grand prize of $100, they would
receive $720. The deputy must get la
his charter list a sufficient number to
warrant taking the $5 of the money
from the charter members for his own
services. Thus it provides a safeguard
against a charter membership so small
as to make them weaklings. It Is esti
mated that the charter list should not
be less than twenty-five In order to
warrant the taking of the five dollar
fee. This liberal payment of the depu
ties will account largely for the mark
ed Increase In the number of granges
In Michigan during the past few years.

A Worthy Exhibit.
There have been numerous grange
exhibits at county fairs this season,
and it is a good sign. Perhaps one of
the most Interesting of these was at
the Hudson fair, Columbia county,
when Llndenwald grange of Kinder-
hook exhibited 101 varieties of fruits,
vegetables, grains, flowers, nuts and
canned fruits. They exhibited 50 va
rieties of apples, 10 of grapes, 12 of
pears, 27 of vegetables, 17 of flowers
and 17 of canned fruits. This grange
won the first prize of $40. German-
town range exhibited 134 varieties, of
which C4 were apples, 28 of pears and
22 of grapes, and won $30. Claverack
grange exhibited 07 varieties, among
which were 19 varieties of cucumbers,
14 of beets and 10 of beans. Living
ston grango had 37 varieties. These

A Vote For Direct Primaries.
Genesee (N. Y.) Pomona grange met
Oct 0 with an attendance of about
209. The subordinate granges of that
county reported a total membership of
2,270. The following resolution was
adopted: "Resolved, That we demand
direct voting at the primaries and here
by direct our delegates at the next,
state grange meeting to do all In their
power to effect the passage of such a
law." The next meeting will be held
at Batavia on Dec. 17.
