in politeness, the Elks club turned out

left Crawford on the first train.

Mr. R. E. Marshall,
North Platte, Nebraska.
Enclosed find carbon copy from
my files of the letter revoking the'
charter of the North Platte Nest. This
letter was sent to Mr. Huffman in an
envelope containing a five days return
direction, just like the envelope con
taining this letter, and it was never re
turned so ho undoubtly received it. He
subsequently wrote here complaining
that the Nest should not bo required to
pay per capita tax for the quarter end
ing September 30th, but that they
would make their report and pay tax if
they wero given credit for it for the
quarter ending December 31st. The
Supremo Trustees considered this and
finally agreed in the instance of your
Nest to allow that to bo done, and
Huffman was so imformed, and since
that time ho has never written to tho
. Mr. Kesler never had a commission
as a organizer from this order. Mr.
Hill did havo such a commission to or-
nnizo North Platte. Enclosed find a
lank such as was used for his com
mission, on tho back of which you will
find his contract as an organizer. I
have never heard from Mr. Hill since
tho North Platto Nest was instituted.
As to when per capita tax was due, I
call your attention to Article 8 on page
G of the constitution enclosed. This
constitution is somewhat different from
An excellent collection, showing-
the subtle ways in which
fashions differentiates between
the passing and the coming sea
son. Coats are shorter, and
have roll or hand turned collar,
tuxedo collar or "round collar in
shawl effect. The skirts are
trifle wider and most of them
are in panel effect or strapped
and trimmed to match the coat.

F. L. M00NEY, Cashier.
Local Nest of Owls.
Came from Headquarters of
that which was furnished you at the
time of your institution, because it has
since been amended, but this particular
article is just the same in the amend
ment as it was in the other and it will
show you in connection with Article 9
on the same pago that per capita tax
is payable for every member who paid
dues for any time during the quarter
ending September 30th; therefore,
there was due per capita tax from your
Nest on all those members who paid
dues at any time between September
9th and September 30th, but as,you
say, that matter is, in the light of cir
cumstances, not so important as that
blame should be placed where it be
longs. Yours in O. O. O.
John W. Talbot.
November 27th, 1911.
Mr. G. S. Huffman, North Platte, Neb.
Dear Brother: My attention has been
called by the Supreme Secretary to
tho fact that since its charter was
issued September9, 1911, nnd forwarded
to you and received by you, as shown
by the registry receipt returned, many
communications have been addressed to
you and your President, Vice-President
and treasurer, relative to your Nest
and to the report which it should have
made on September 30th. To all of
these communications your officers havo
failed to make any response and you
havo failed to make tho report of your
Nest, for which report blanks wero
forwarded to you on September 15th.
Therefore, I hereby revoke tho charter
of your Nest at North Platte, Nebras
ka. Yours in O. O. O.,
John W, Talbot,
