The morning tcssion is always con
vened at sunrise ana is secret. So
secret, in fact, that there hits never
yet been a word or syllable of the
proceedings repeated withont the
cntmoer walls. All other sessions
are free to everybody. The last bus
iness done at each annual meeting is
to appoint a committee t? assemble
at the groundhog den at dawn on the
next groundhog day, and there take
observations and report as soon as
possible to the meeting already in
secret session in the chamber at the
Uidge. The return of the committee
is ever a great attraction to the out
siders, and hundreds from all the
country around about are here to
witness the scono. The meeting to'
day does not differ from :ts prcde
cetsors, save in that the crowd of
onlookers is greater than ever before.
During the secret ses3ioa. which
usually lasts from four to lire hoars.
the assembled crowd outride spends
the time in conjecturing upon the
repart tho committer will return.
This is a matter of great importance
to the farmer, as upon that report
he bases all his calculations for his
late winter and spring work. This
may seem trilling to some people,
but if any one is skeptical on
this point, all that will be reqiired
t convert him will be to make an
inspection ot the farms bed farmers1
families any where in this section.
and he will be convinced that there
is a secret of success hero thit can
not be accounted for upon any other

dignity assumed ty the president on
these occasions would cause the most
dignified United States senator to die
with envy were he to witness a ses

As the president arose to deliver
his annual address the proverbial
pin, had it falNn oa the 11 tor, a loud
report would have been the conse
quence. The address was delivered
ia a most earnest and dignified man
ner, and showed the speaker to be a
thorough master of his autject. Me
went over the historv of the soeiety
from its beginning, its successes and
failcres before tbe true theory was
established, and as he touched upon
the lives of the brothers of the soci
ety who have (passed over the dark
river and the individual sacrifices
they had made for the welfare of
all mankind, there was scarcely a
dry eye ia all the great assembly.
