The State Grange of the Patrons of
lusbandry assembled at the Hibernian
Elail, Charleston, on Tuesday, the 5th
nat., and was called to order by the
Worthy Master, Col. T-J. Lipscomb.
[n opening the Grange Col. Lipscomb
iaid that, in accordance with the sanc
Aon of the National Grange, he propos
3d to organize this meeting with open
;oors. If a majority of the members
lesired it the doors could be closed at
i later stage of the proceedings. One
rason for organizing the meeting with
)pen doors was that there were many
Patronts l)esent who were niot in stand
ng owing to various circumstances
whose counsel and presence were desir- I
ul. Another reason wai that the
Jrder had been conducting its busi
leoss in secret for fourteen years, and
t was time now that its work should
)e done openly in the eyes ofthe world.

vith prayer by the Rev. J. G. Richards,

lecturing must be in localities where
the subordinate Grange is dormant or

my local invitation or arrangement.
Strong, wealthy Oranges invite lectur

they can display such prosperity and
