representative gathering, the Immi

Archbishop Blenk then delivered an
invocation, touching on the importance
of the station and calling on God to
specially bless it, as well as those who
would work for its advancement and
further the cause of immigration.
Among the speakers was Mayor
Behrman, who was roundly cheered as
he came to the front of the platform.
Mr. Behrman did not talk long but
what he said was full of meat. He
gave due credit to Mr. Redfern for ev
erything done by him in helping to
make the station all that It should be,

Mr. Behrman said the station was
admirably located and possessed every
requisite for doing business, and it was
now up to all those interested to work
in harmony and bring desirable citi
zens here. He said first impressions
are lasting, and certainly none better
could be made than that which will
impress the new arrival when even a
birdseye view of the surroundings are
taken. The mayor referred to the gen
erosity with which the government
gave the money and how the city and
state co-operated to the station, to
gether with all other modern improve
ments, such as an excellent car ser
vice, which will be improved as the
need becomes apparent.

TLE MARGUERITE HYMEL ASi
There assembled in itaton lRoulge onI
March 26, 27 and 28 one of the lar;est
gatherings of its kind over ih,,i in
that city, the occasion being the joint
contention of the W\. . W. and the, 1
auxiliary,. the \Voodmen Circle. The
Woodmen Circle was represented bl.
the Grand Grove of eleven member.
and ninety-one delegates from difter
ent sections of the state. Our order
has been wonderfully prosperous dlr
ing the biennial term ending 1)De. ::1.
1912, which may he attributed to the
perfect harmony and good will exist
ing among the Groves, members and
sovereign representatives. The field
workers have been loyal, devoted and
energetic. We feel glad to be able to
let our sovereigns and friends in dear
Algiers know that the highest office in
the state was won by an electoral vote
of 66 to 36 in favor of Mrs. Amelia
Smith, guardian of Orange Grove No.
9 of Algiers, who now becomes the
Worthy Guardian of the state of Lou
isiana. Mrs. Smith is a woman of
great personal magnetism and of very
charming manner and is a loyal and
faithful worker for Woodcraft and we
feel certain that she shall justify all
the great things we expected of her
when we placed the gavel of authority
of the Woodmen Circle of the State of
Louisiana in her hands.
The spirit of harmony and good fel
lowship which prevailed throughout
the convention has been a source of
comfort and encouragement to all in
terested in this great beneficial and
fraternal order. Installation of offi
cers took place on Thursday eve and
was a pleasant feature. Little Mar
s garet Hymel of Algiers was made
r Grand Mascot and presented the beau
s tiful flowers of remembrance to the in
k coming and outgoing officers and by
j. her sweet manner made many friends
s among the delegates assembled. The
r convention closed with many kind
I words and much determination for two
a years of hard work for the upbuilding
e of the Order. The next session will be
- held in Alexandria, La., March, 1915.
t In the selection of Mrs. Amelia
I Smith to the high and responsible of
. fice of grand guardian the Grand Grove
. made a wise step to the upbuilding of
the Woodmen Circle, a lady of sterl
e ing worth and executive ability, that
has won her the esteem and love of all
e that have come in contact with her.
Ever ready to help a needy one, always
of a bright and sunny disposition, the
proud mother of a family of three chil
dren and the wife of one of our widely
known townsmen, Shade G. Smith, the
local lodges can indeed feel proud of
the wise selection that the Grand
Mrs. Smith has always labored hard
and earnestly to bring about that har
mony and fraternal feeling amongst
the Groves that is 'befitting of true
sovereigns pnd that she has succeeded
is shown by the confidence that the
Grand Grove has placed in her. Mrs.
Smith is one of the most popular and
I most widely known of the members of
the Woodmen Circle, having served
three years as guardian of Orange
Grave, the position which she now
When Mrs. Smith was installed as
the Grand Guardian of the State of
Louisiana she was presented with two
beautiful bouquets of carnations and
roses and received the good wishes of
the members of the Grand Grove.
In accepting the office of Grand
Guardian, Mrs. Smith spoke with much
feeling and gave every evidence that
she was conscious of the duties of the
Ihigh office. Mrs. Smith deserves the
support of every member of the Order
and she is entitled to the congratula
tions which she received.
The many friends of Leonard F.
Gisch will be pleased to know that his
wounded hand is slowly improving and
he expects to be at work again in a
few days. Mr. Gise had the misfor
tune of having a bottle of catsup ex
plode in his hand while opening it.
