PATRONS OF HUSBANDRY. "I returnedl on the 23d ult.," says ex-Lec turer T. A. Thompson, "from :a tour of thirty visits, widely scattered over.Minneso ta. Ilound the prospects of the Order very encouraging. It has been Qfw.ast benefit to 'the farmers of Minnesota. TI'hey came from nearly every State east of the Mississipi riv er, strangers. In the Graiage they became acquainted; a spiritrof inqulry awakened; and the Order has been invaluable in social and intellectual benefits. It pays, also, in -htlancial advantages." AT a meeting of Directors of the Grangers' 'Business Association, held February 19th, 1878, a dividend of 40 cents per share was declared to become due and payable.on and after the first day of June, 1878" This is the .second dividend the association has made. About a year ago it declared a dividend of 30.eents per.share. The ability of the asso ciation ,to declare a dividend at the olose of the exceeding dry year of 1877 shows that the Grangers' Business Association is dong ,st'least its share of the cemmission btsiuess ,tf San Francisco. * * '* The D.neetors, In order to have the stodk of the.sesociation distributed as much as possible, have ex-' ,tended the time in which .dehnluent share-i 'holders may redeem their stock. This they' ,can do any time before the third Monday tp' ,April.-California PatFsn. .ROW TO XAKE THE J0RANGE MllEETIXNS PLEASANT AND .P3OFITABLE. ,Jn reading the notes from some of your carsespondents, I judge that "dry grange" hips become quite a cuxommn complaint, not because the principles are not worthy of our sustaining the Order, but br the Jack of something sto entertain. A teacher, in en tgring upon ihs duties, feels ,tiat his success in a great ,measure depends au getting his scholars interested in their studies. The great pulpit orator said that if his audience began leaving the church before the elose of services, he should think there was some- thing wrong with Henry Ward Beecher. And so we know there is something wrong with some of the granges, but as there is no _Articular leader to point to and say, he is t4 blame, we shall all have tc admit of a s.all amount of neglected duty. Why is the giange dry? Let us see. We have been to grange to-day, and nothing done but trausacting -busliness; we go home feeling that we have had a feast, but it was potato. Our next ecperience is something similar, only it was all putnpkin. All right enough in their places, but our pampered appetites crave not only a ekumge. bitt a va rletv at each meal. In coming to something for the good ot the order, it is quite c'ustonI. r.y for all (eyes to turn to the lecturer. 1'sor tellow, how I pity him. Ile is ,xpect ed. above all others, to entertain, instruct and interest. He must be clown, orator an(d teacher, or, in case lie tails to p.rform one of his parts, some member is called upon to make an off-hand speech, for which he is poorly qualified and not being prepared, -naturally blunders through a sort of experi ence speech. Or, if he says nothing, some one else says, he has allowed another party to eat his rations, and has received no ben efit from the meeting. No wonder that granges merely exist under such mlsman agement. and I am glad that the Helper has taken hold of this much needed reformn, be lievi.ng it will call out good ideas in this direction. In looking ot'er our grange, I find that we have a doctor, builder, mason, mechanic, cheese-maker, teacher, and several good singers. Each of these could entertain the grange with a dozen different speeches or essays in his line. But who ever heard a doctormake an uncalled for speech on "the ,laws of ,health," or a teacher branch off into astronomy, in such a place as the grange, without being called on to do so? What is everybody's ibusiness is nobody's business. All go to be entertahied, but no one wishes to intrude anything of an outside character on the time of the grange, fearing it would not be acceptable to all present. But if eaeh grange was organized with the lecturer as executive to .preside over -a' certain amount of time (say two'hours), ai' lowing neither business nor anything else to interfere, we should all go to our meetings feeling that there was something to be learned. Said lecturer would ,then be ex pected to lay out work for others to do, e lecting questions for ediscussion, ;appointing two or perhaps foturdisputants;; calling on this one to write an essay, that one to nutke a speech, or select readings, and-so fortlh:; in fact working up the material which he has to the best advantage. And I believe =these is in every grange talent enough, if rightly used, to make the Order a success. I should` also be in favor, once a year, of having a rousing exhibition, allowing the children to do at least their share, and co-operate enough to pay double the expense, counting timne and dues both, and keeping an eye on the sound principles which underlie the Or der. I see no need of any itmore revivals. Patron's Helper. Favorite Publications.
