Waller WOODMEN CONVEN TION AT CONWAY A RECORD BREAKER I — The 8th biennia! convention of the head camp.

Dio Lewis, that ever popular genius brought the house down with a timely toast which we re produce. “When the Woodmen of the | World wille be dead” vvnen the hen eats grass like an ox and the fishworm swallows the whale; When terrapins knitt wooden socks and the hare is outrun by the snail; When serpents walk upright like men and doodle-bugs travel like frogs, When grasshoppers feed on hens and feathers are found on the hog. When Thomas cats swim in the air and elephants roost on trees: When insects in summer are rare and snuff never makes peo ple sneeze; When fish creep over dry land and mules on bycicles ride, When foxes lay eggs in the sand and women in dress take no pride; W'hen Dutchmen no longer beer drink and girls get to preaching on time: When billy goats bnt from the rear and treason no longer is crime, When hnmming birds bray: like an ass and limberger smells like cologne; When plow shares are made of glass and the hearts of the peo ple are stone; When ideas grow in an anti W( odrnan head and wool on the hydraulic ram, Then the Woodmen of the World will be dead and the country wont be worth a d-mn. Hot Springs won cut for the next convention after a lengthy and spirsted debate. The Woodmen Circle elected the following officers and dele gates. Grand Guardian—Mrs. Lulu Markwellof Little Rock.
