On Monday evening the local chapter of the Order of Eastern Star met and held an open meeting as a memorial to their departed members, putting on the work in Leon for the first time. The ritualistic services were most beautiful and impressive and were put on in fine shape. The points of the star on the altar were filled with fresh flowers in the colors of the order and as each was placed in its point the teachings were given and explained. The past Matrons drilled and formed a cross in front of the altar and the meaning and teachings of it were told. A mixed quartet rendered several appropriate songs.
The following are the names of the departed members:
Mrs. Dale Bowman. Mrs. Emma Daugherty. Mrs. Mary Warner Bashaw. Mrs. Ellen McKee Poush. Mrs. Perle Estella Smith. Mrs. Emma Bowman. Mr. J.R. Bashaw. Mr. E.H. Alexander. Mr. Tillman Schenck. Mr. J.O. Girthhoffer. Mr. Albert E. Swim. Dr. W.R. West. Mrs. Mary Buell. Mrs. Mattie Pitman Lindsey. Mrs. Anna Marie Stark.
