ODD FELLOWS ENTERTAIN AT
One Hundred and Twenty (iuests Present.
Rebeccas' Coke Sold lor $25.
Rebeccas Will Organize.
The greatest lodge entertain
ment ever witnessed in Tucumcari
whs pulled off Thursday night at
the I. O. O. F. Hall over the post
office. Public installation was had
and followed by a banquet at which
1 20 people sat down to a supper
the equal of which has never been
seen in this community. There
was everything to eat from an olive
to a roast pig, and there were other
things, to drink, coffee and "sich,'
until your stomach was filled with
the best provender known to the
culinary art and your disposition
was all sunshine even under Tu
cumcari electric lights. The offi
cers installed were as follows:
Lee Sherwood, N. G.;
G. F. Mullins, V. G.;
Levi Beals, Financial Secretary,
S. M. Wharton, Treasurer.
Following the installation Broth
er York delivered a lecture on
Odd Fellowship that made a man
feel that he is not following the
Ten Commandments unless he be
comes an Odd Fellow. His lec
ture was a correct portrayal of
Odd Fellowship both historically
and socially and was greatly ap
preciated by all who heard him.
The banquet followed and no
body will ever forget the manner
in which the Rebeccas and families
of the membership of this lodge
did get busy and feed the multi
tude. The editor along with a
few other hungry Odd Fellows put
away enough provender in about
twenty minutes to feed all the
guests of the Tucumcari hotels for
a month, but we haven't been
hungry since, too much of a good
thing will even discombobulate the
alimentary intentions of a country
editor and overfeeding will as you
know take the hoofs off a horse.
A roster of membership for a
Rebecca Lodge was obtained in
about five minutes following ora
tions on the subject by Dr. C. J.
K. Moore, Rev. J. W. Campbell
and Satterwhite, all of whom as
sured Odd Fellows present that
nothing could be carried out suc
cessfully without the aid of the
women, and it being just after
supper, which, with cigars from
Mrs. M. 13. Fowler, as a comple
ment to the long line of food
consumed, there was no op
position, and a cake prepared by
the Rebeccas was sold by Rev.
Campbell lor the handsome sum of
$25. 00. to highest bidder, the
money to go to the Rebecca organization.
Before adjournment Rev. Camp
bell was awarded a candy crested
cake for the high excellence he
had shown as auctioneer.
Everybody present had a good
time from convening to adjourn
ment of intertainment and as soon
as the banquet was ended the hall
was cleaned and Luke Raines of
Bell Ranch was introduced to the
mysteries of the initiatory cere
mony. F. G. Robinson is in town from

twenty years from Indigestion. About
eighteen months ago I had grown so much
worse that I could not retain anything on
my stomach, My heart wonld beat so
fast I could not sleep. At times I would
almost draw double with pain in the pit of
my stomach. I lost 25 pounds. I now
weigh more than I ever did in my life and
am in better health than for many years.
Kodol did it, I keep a bottle constantly,
and write this hoping that humanity will
be benefitted.1' Yours very truly,
