Mt. View Lodge No. 179 IO: 0. F.
' held a good" meeting on the 14th inst.
with J. M. Ilayncs N.G., presiding, and
some twenty brothers in attendance.
Quite a lot of routine business was dis
posed of and Bro. R. F. Pippin was re-
- ported no better. Bro. ' E. D. Staley
was reported as still quite feeble. Bro.
W. R. Poston who was reported very
bad off at the last meeting died on the
9th inst. and was buried in Jackson Co.
by the Gainesboro Lodge, I. O. 0. F.,
by request of this Lodge. . "
More than 130 members of this Lodge
are up with their dues and . entitled to
the new P. W. It is earnestly hoped
the rest of the membership will get a
hustle on themselves "and qualify for
the new P. W. -
The new officers worked splendidly
for their first time and prospects are
very good for a splendid term.
We have two members who having
attained the age of 75 years are by the
by-laws exempt from paying dues.
: The Secretary was authorized to sign
the Bank agreement, the Lodge think
ing it better to get a little interest and
have its money secured as per terms of
the Bank, than to drag along as now.
ft makes matters safer.
Next meeting is on Friday 20th inst.
Come if you can.

Ada, Okla.
As some one from Route 6 wanted
F. G. D. to write a'few lines I will try
for the first time.
' I have been in Ada since July 21st
and saw my second rain the 28th of the
past month. It has been very dry hero
this fall.
The city has voted $150,000 bends for
Bird Mill water which is 15 miles south
of Ada. This fine spring affords enough
water for every family and all of the
stock in the country and the water is
just as pure as any in Tennessee or any
where else. When we get this we will
have one of the best towns in the state
I like this country better than Tenn '
essee for a young man has more chance
here than there.
As to myself I have a nice job work
ing m a grocery store for reasonably -
good wages.
Seme of the Tennessee people talk'pf
going back to Tennessee some time es
pecially when they get sick, for they
think if they should die and were to be
buried beneath the black land they
would be forever buried beneath: the
sod and would never arise again.
R. D. Dow has rented 120 acres of
fine land at Tyrolla. Okla..
north of ' Ada, wi th ; good terms and
farming irnplments furnished and a nice
house on the place; barns and every
thing a farm needs. He pays half of the
crop. He will leave Ada about the 15th
to take charge of his new home.
- The writer took one day off for Xrnaa
and chased jack' rabbits all day and got:
oqe and was more tired when ther sun
went down than the day he worked.
Will close , with best wishes to the
Herald and many readers. . G. D. ;
