The Treasurer, Mary Tilton, reported $12.90 in the treasury.

asked to send thirty dollars on to the League.

Next meeeting place "The Briars."

"I'd like to be a could-be
If I could not be an are,
for a could-be is a may-be
With a chance of touching par.
I'd rather be a has-been
Than a might-have-been by far,
For a might-have-been has never been,
But a has-been was an are."

She also told us of some bargains in peonies and iris and gave
notice of a Peace Conference at Richmond, Ind., October 17th. Donations for
the W.C.T.U. Fountain are still being accepted. Then a scrap entitled "When
Mother washed his neck."

suitable time to plant currant bushes? Yes, the ground should be rich.

Marianna Miller read from the old minute book of meetings at
Prospect Hill, Mr. Pleasant and Ashland in 1869.

Mary Nichols read from the Mentor of Christopher Columbus's
indomitable courage, but he evidently lacked a good peppy business manager.
