CO.S STORE DURING CHICAGO CONVENTION. early hour in his cottage at the Botanic Gardens, where he had lived for more than sixty years. The end came peace- fully after an illness of eight months. The sad duty of making the final ar- rangements for the burial services and interment in Rock Creek cemetery was delegated to me, as it Was the wish of Wm. R. Smith, often expressed while living, that I should look after this for him. I immediately telegraphed the president of this society as well as all past presidents. The president, Rich- ard Vincent, Jr., and Past President Robt. Craig and Past President F. R. Pierson attended the funeral services. Telegrams and letters of sympathy also were received from nearly all past presidents. The funeral services were held from the Scottish Rite Cathedral, Tuesday afternoon. July 9, at 3 p. m. The body was laid to final rest in Rock Creek cemetery with Masonic honors. A num- ber of members as well as ex-presi- dents of this society were present. Mr. Smith while living often expressed the desire that this society should have a suitable home at the national capital, and I indulge the hope that at this meeting a committee may be appointed to look into the advisability of estab- lishing a permanent home at the na- tional capital, for the S. A. F. and O. H., which might be made a suitable memorial to our late honored member. Wir. F. GuDE, Representative S. A. F.

Simth : The Smith Resolutions. Whereas, The late William R. Smith, the father of our charter, an honored member of this organizatiojij was for the greater part of his life a resident of the n
