E O Sisterhood convened in Las Animas May 24 aud 25, 1904. Every Chap ter in the state was represented by delegatee, and maoy visitors from tbe various Chapters were also in attendance. Mrs. M. Lue Weber, Supreme Grand Chapter President, end Miss Mary Osmond, editor of tbe P. E. O. Record, both of lowa, were dis tinguished members of the couven tion. * Miss Virginia H. Corbett of Fort Collios, Grand Chapter President, presided, aud great enthusiasm pre vailed throughout the session. One noticeable feature of tbe convection was the harmony and fraternal feel ing evidenced. That the ladiee were appreciative is shown by the adop tion of the following resolutions: “Resolved, That Chapter B, Las Aoimas, be given a vote of tbauks for the very cordial reception and magnificent entertainment tendered the delegates to this State Grand Chapter convention. “That Chapter D, Lamar, be ex tended a vote of thanks for exempli ficatiou of tbe Ritual and conducting omciJLij xr£*urs3PJs.racae or ccchty LAMAR.

Recording Secretary, Viola R. Whittlesey. Corresponding Secretary, Bessia Melville. Treasurer, Adda K. Johnston. Organiser, Lulu M. Carroll. After an elegant banquet the con yeotion adjourned to meet next year in Colorado Springs. The P. E. O Sisterhood is the largest order which is absolutely in depebdent of any men's organisation or lodge, and had its birth in the col lege town of Mr. Pleasant, lowa, in 1809. Tbe membership now nnm bers nearly seven thousand. The policy tends to conservatism and ex «lnsiveness. The secrets are most carefully guarded by all who enter in and au invitation to wear tbe sym bol of the order, the P. E. O. star, is eagerly accepted. A matter of oonsidetable interest to sheepmen of Colorado was decid ed by the court of appeals on Mon day. The case was first tried in the district court of Bent county and was brought by P. H. Sweetman. against John J. Cooper and D. R. Mulvane for damages. A motion for non-suit was sustained when Sweetman appealed toa higher court. In reversing tbe decision the court of appeal* says in its opinion the evi dence shows that there were certaiu marks to indicate boundaries and Sweetman bad made an effort to call the attention of trespassers to them, but they declined to see the marks. The evidence was declared suffi cient to support a finding that the defendants knowingly and wilfnlly conducted their sheep upon the plaintiffs ground. The allowance of non suit was accordingly declared to be an error, and tba judgment re versed. —Bent Conuty Democrat A Chance for Oratory. Mr. Bryan will be one of Nebras - ka’s delegates at large at the demo erstic national convention. He won by an overwhelming majority in the Omaha primaries, where the reor ganizers expected to name the dele gatee. There will be an opportun ity at tbe St. Louis convention for some firey speeches delivered on tbe epur of the moment, for no one can tell what a second will bring forth in tbe gathering that meets without issues, and with a purpose, it is sup* posed, to disown its platforms of 1896 and 1900. Mr. Bryan says he will make an uncompromising fight on that point. He will find many delegatee in the convention who voted against him on the strength of tbe money question, and its elemei.t with recruits, expects to name the democratic ticket. The New York politician who in 1896 was “ a dem ocrat still—very wtill** will lead tbe Parker forces. In fact, Parker is Hill's political creation. As a ready, sturdy, rigorous ora tor, Mr. Bryan will hardly havs an equal in the convention. He will unquestionably be a man of power and influence in that body outside of his devoted followers. It will be impossible to put him down or side* track him. He will force a full hearing in spite of ordinary devises to get rid of a disturbing factor. The Bryan position is that the demo crats who voted against him, reject ing »he platforms of 1890 and 1900, shall not now oontrol the party. Their trinmph, it is believed, can toot be so veiled that Mr. Bryan will submit to it. It is said that Bryan’s hold on the party has waned. But be went iuto one democratic national convention comparatively uukuown and came out of it famous. It re maitis to be proved that he can not sway the St. Louis convention to a aensAlional extent. —Globe-Demo- crat. s2o*ooo just received for farm loans. No dslays. L. Wirt Markham. Facts dsss?
