fThe Magazine Club
Thc Magazine Club which
is sometimes erroneously term
ed the Thirteen Club is one
of the delightful organizations
among Lawrenceburgs four
hundred While it does con
sist of thirteen members it
was not premeditated on the
part of the organizers to defy
the old superstition nor did
they wish to test the correct
ness of it but it will stagger
the faith of the firmest believ
er in the doctrine of the un
lucky thirteen to know that
the Magazine Club has been
in existence eleven years and
the members are all living
hale and hearty dwelling to
gether in unity and have long
since settled for all time the
mooted question that marriage
is not a failure The members
of the organization are not ex
tremists for they do not meet
on the 13th of the month nor
do they partake of thirteen
courses as some wag has in
timated but they do take
thirteen periodicals and some
times sit thirteen at the table
Once a month a delightful en
tertainment is proffered ba
member and many outsiders
are invited to partake of the
hospitality ofa club hostess
These functions are purely so
I cial to engender friendship
and promote hospitality and
I are not characterized by any
I special literary feature al
though the latest stories and
i current events appearing in
the magazines arc often dis
cussed Thirteen of the best
I periodicals in existence are
taken and these are exchang
ed twice each week going sys
tematically from one member
to another The club does
not enlarge its membership
because it would take the books
I too long to make the rounds
i Only one meeting a year is
called and that is in Decem
ber to discuss the merits of
the magazines vote upon
their adoption into the club
and renew subscriptions The
club has only one officer a li
brarian whose duty it is to or
der the literature keep track
of its circulation and collect
for incidental expenses This
honorable and lucrative po
sition is ably filled by Mrs J
W Mahan The members of
