Hugh Anderson.-Formerly worked out of Denver. Has been missing since November, 1902. Was at work at Mena, Ark. Received a letter from him November 16th, from Kansas City, Mo., where he was trying to get work, and he stated that if he did not get work he expected to go to Lincoln, Neb., Omaha or Chicago. Have heard nothing from him since. He is not a member of the B. of L. F., but was until about two years ago. I am left with three little children to care for and am anxious to hear from him. Any information as to his present whereabouts will be thankfully received by his wife, Mrs. Mary Anderson, Brighton, Mich.

Charity.

The broad principle of our Order, that of charity, does not alone consist of giving material comfort, but in our thoughts we should always be charitable to those with whom we come in contact. A kind word has often influenced the future of those who had begun to feel that life had but little happiness for them. Often it has been the turning point in the career of many. How many loving hearts hunger for a kind word! There are times when a kind word of encouragement from the one we love is as grateful as is the spring in the desert to the traveler. Let us not be too quick to condemn. Before passing judgment, let us ask ourselves, what would I have done under similar circumstances? Do not let the idle tongue of gossip influence our feelings. Let us remember that it is often the best fruit that the birds pluck. It is unfortunately true that a breath of slander will travel with the speed of light, while words of praise and commendation sometimes take a long time. Therefore, my sisters, when we have occasion to criticise others, let us withhold judgment until we have heard both sides, and then let us practice that charity which we would expect to receive from others. Let us be absolutely fair in our dealings with all. Avoid doing those things which you know will give pain. Be a true and loyal member of the Society; follow its practices and teachings in your intercourse with each other, and should the time ever come that you are to be judged, then you will know that absolute justice will be done you.

MRS. GEORGIE M. SARGENT.
Grand President.

The Office of the Grand Secretary and Treasurer.

Returning from Omaha, where I had been attending the State convention of the N. T. L., I stopped over one train at Boone, Iowa, where is located the office of the Grand Secretary and Treasurer of the Ladies' Society. I was anxious to meet Sister DuBois, as well as to see some of the methods now employed in the office under her personal supervision. I had pictured a small, stuffy room, with a desk and chair, and possibly a table, littered with letters, statements, constitutions and the usual supplies, with the absence of anything like order, and a little, fidgety woman in charge, who, when called upon, would soon freeze me out, so that I would make my visit brief, and I would depart with little, if any more, knowledge of the Society than when I

came.

After leaving the train, I walked down the main street of as busy a town as can be seen in the West. Inspection of the

store windows disclosed the fact that in

Boone are to be found large mercantile establishments, where are displayed the choicest and latest styles. The buildings are modern and thoroughly up-to-date. In fact, I soon discovered that Boone was not an out-of-the-way country village, but a large, thriving town, with every facility for business and pleasure.

On inquiry, I was pointed out a handsome brick building, and was informed that up one flight I would find the office of the Grand Secretary and Treasurer, Sister DuBois. I mounted the stairs and rapped upon the door indicated as the
