Aug. 1 was date of last meeting of Grattan Grange and with all the ofli cers at their posts Grange passed by with unlimited interest. Akrnt seventy-live partook of the regular work of Grange and enjoyed seeing the class of young people instructed in the lessons of the second and third degrees. We might ask the question, "Why is Grattan such a beautiful farming country and its farmers classed as such prosperous agriculturists" but if people should be privileged to call at Grattan Grange occasionally the question could soon be answered. Nearly all the "young farmers" as they reach the required age for memltership in the Grange seek ad mittance and become acquainted w ith the line farm principles which the Grange sets forth. The class now consists of three bright young ladies and nine young men, and as the gavel sounds the closing tap altou" twenty live to thirty-live youngmen file to the right down the hall. I think young people are apt to grasp valuable les sons from such meetings, unconcious 1', and as these agricultural princi ples are so thoroughly discus?ed and inculcated in our Grange, I think this accounts, partially for our l)cautifully kept farms. After Grange closed, ice cream and cake was served. Social enjoyment closed the pleas ant meeting, until two weeks, when the fourth degree will be given to the class. A general feast will be held as usual so ;ill come prepared both to feed and be fed. CANNONSIU'lU;. Prof. Howman and .7. F. Hookey were In Grand Hapids last week. The L. A.
