The State Grange
The State Grange has been in session at Clayton this week. The meeting was more that usually interesting there was a very fair attendance, and the reports show that the order is very largely on the increase and rapidly growing on all portions of the state.
The addresses were fine and full of useful information and valuable suggestions. Major Winn, in behalf of the city, welcomed the grangers, and Mr. E. Shackelford responded in behalf of the order. Rev. Mr. Winn made the address for the county, and Major T. J. Key, of this city, responded. The annual address of the master, H. Hawkins, was one of his best productions, and will be a most excellent document to distribute among the farmers of the state.
Mr. Wm. Kimbrough, Master of the Georgia State Grange was present and on the last day made a most excellent address which was listened to with great interest.
Addresses were also made by P. B. Mastin, Major Key and others on a variety of subjects.
The following officers were elected:
H. Hawkins, of Barbour County, Master; W. J. Rountree, of Dallas, Overseer; Miss Florence Gilmer, of Selma, Secretary. The executive committee was empowered to fix the time and place for the meeting, and the Grange adjourned.
The Advertiser is gratified to note the growth an advancement of the order, because its influences are all for good, and intended to improve and benefit the farming interests. Long live the Grange.—Montgomery Advertiser.
