4 Upon Feb. 24th there was born in thisi and
city a social and fraternal order to be bile t
'I known asthe "Crawfish Club," regularly
"° organized with a full quota of officers boon

9' The main purpose of this order is to
"oi be the exploitation of the backward, itnps
but oh, so sweet, or, as scientists know t
.on them, Crayfish.
Other orders there are that exploit repa
".47 various animals and birds, such as the
7.64 Moose. Elks, Otters. Beavers. Eagles, whal
Owls. Buffaloes, Lamlbs. etc.. Things
that are in many case confined to only
do certain regions. O 1
ins But the members will endeavor to
engrave upon the tablets of time a niame tI flw
that heretofore has seemingly escaped and
day attention, possibyh being considered too
S. lowly. They have seen and felt the that
blc. many good points of this humble creature.
They have seen how they stick together,
0. how they endeavor to back out of trouble, w1h
ion- how they cautiously feel their way, how for
of they fight for their rights, but when the
'e time comes for the sacrifice, how they curl
give up their small lives without a word

192.99 All of which many humans could emnu
4.46 late and which this organizatiom will
3.46 endavor to do, thereby endeavoring to
consecrate the name of ."Crawfish."
The crawfish is found spread over the
9694 entire universe and such is the ultimate
372.o intent of this ordyr. Mighty oaks from
small acorns grow.
is.co To keep this band together and in
" harmony and good spirits it is the
intention of this order through different
.oo.0o members to have weekly outings through
out the season to gather in their name
.3.04 msakes and have them attend banquets
.a . I given in their honor and for their mutual
711. benefit and at which banquets there will
17.33 be flows of reason and feast of soul.
s o And in order that it will not be con
strued as a selfish order it is intended to 4
have the lady members of families of the
members present at these feasts from

i true God made man first, than madle woman
directly after him. And by the way; she
has been after him ever since.
