Download PDF for this date

The Order of the Western Star, which has been functioning since 1894, at its last convention here determined to conclude its existence and instructed its officers to arrange for the formalities in this connection.

The order was moved to take this step because of the drastic fall in membership and because of the large deficit it was carrying.
