TE1RTTORIAL SRAWGE. 'The pext session of the Territorial Grange will beheld at the hall of Madison grange No. 22, Madison valley, on June 4, 1879. It bs to be hoped that every grange in the ter ritory will be represented, as business of importance will come before the meeting. In behalf of Madison grange, I extend to *all Patrons a cordial invitation to meet with us. We will try and make it pleasant for all. Let us have a full turn-out. Fraternally, A. N. BULL, Master, Madison valley, April 25, 1879. o - - LITERARY FEATUVRES IN THE GRANGE. $ome difficulty has been found in granges 4n conducting to the best ends the literary exeridaps of the meetings-resdlting gener ally ftots not having any definitely-arranged order. Farmers generally are not aecns tomed to reading or speaking in public, and auntil they are assigned a topic and some time given them for preparation, but few will attempt to take part in such exercises. Most members of the grange are willing to do their part in sustaining every feature of the meetings, and if given a place in the ;remecises, whether an essay or a part in a dlebate, they will be prepared. and perhaps aw-rprise no one more than themselves that phey do so well. The lecturer should arrange work at each meeting for the succeteding one, and it should be the marshal's duty to carry it out. A full hour given to literary work, directly after the opening or after the initiation, has often proved a good plan. A programme should be made out and strictly adhered to. and it should be so arranged that those who do not take part in it one evening may do so at some subsequent one, and thus all be made to bear their part. I give helow an order of exarmres that mwy be varied some what to suit .he occasion in different granges but so arranged as to include as many parts and as good a variety at each meeting as posCIble: 1st, song; 2d, de.jamation or select reading; 3d, questions from the ques tion box, to he discussed; 4th, essay; 5th. poetical selection; 6th, paper of original .and selected matter; 7th, music; 8th, topic for debate. The above can be varied a l!-, wm tame to timer and made to include an hour or more time as may be thought best. The topics for discussion are of great va riety, and care only need be taken to have them seasonable, and such as all will be in terested in. Some that have been discussed in different granges, and are appropriate for still further consideration in most all locali ties, are as follows : " Work of the Coming Spring,; " Food and its Preparation," "The Farming of Different Sections of the Coun try Cotnpared," "The Agricultural Press," " How far shall Farmers' Wives follow Fashion in Dress ?" "GrainCulture," "Root Growing," " Stock-Thoroughbreds vs. Grades," "Farm Improvements," "Agri culture and the Common Schools." Though the evenings are growing shorter, and the farm work opening with greater force, yet the meetings of the grange should not be neglected, but kept up at regular periods all through the coming season.
