Plans are made for making this one of the most mem orable meetings of the State conven tion ever yet held in Florida.

Truly these ladies can acclaim: "In Koc Signo." The local ladies have been working like tigers the past few weeks to make this the moat successful conven tion held by the W. C. T. U. in years r.d they have everything in fine work ing order. Proficient ladies have been placed on all the committees and tl-.ev have let no grass grow under their feet in the matter of accomplish ing the work given them to do to make the convention an unbounded success. The opening session of this great jubilee convention of Women's Chris tian Temperance Union really was held at the Masonic Temple Tuesday evening. The delegates came into the city in swarms during the afternoon, and the local union felt that a royal welcome must be tendered them, and this was done in the way of a ban quet which was served at that time and place. All the afternoon the banquet com mittee and assistants had been work ing most industriously, and the re sult was a set of tables arranged in double "T" formation, with plates laid for one hundred and fifty guests, and every place was occupied. The color scheme of yellow and white was beautifully wrought out.
