W. B. KLUGH, Editor.
At the last meeting of the Society
the attendance was larger, much larger
than usual. Doubtless this was caused
by that particular night being election
night, and doubtless the attendance
will not be as good again until next
At every meeting of the Society a
large percentage of the men who are
on duty cut the exercises for no rea
son whatever. Men, this should not
be so. It is your duty to give your
hardest work to your Society. If you
are on duty don't shirk, but come and
do the best you can. If you are not
on duty come anyway, for it is to your
own good as well as to the good of
the Society that you be punctual.
