John Dunovant Chapter, No. 360, Eagle Lake.-This Chapter on March 1, 1901, had only 33 members. It was organized in March, 1900.

Since March, 1901, we have gained 80 new members, making in all 113. This year we have met twice a month, with very good attendance. Mrs. Ella Gwynn, our president, is a good workier in the cause and commands the love of all the members. It was through her untiring energy and zeal that we have gained as we have. We observed Decoration day, April 26. The Chapter constitution has been printed, and almost every member has a copy. Our flower is the pansy. Our Chapter motto is "In Today Walks Tomorrow."

We have responded to every call, both small and large, and as yet we have no place of meeting except at private houses. Harmony and patriotism rule our Chapter, the prevailing sentiment being to pay rightful tribute to the bravery and fidelity of our Southern soldiers, living and dead, and to show forth with what abiding affection and zealous care the conquered banner is still cherished.

We have furnished fifty-five certificates of membership to our Chapter, and have applied for twent-four badges of honor for Confederate Veterans.

Shropshire Upton Chapter, No. 361, Columbus.-It is with pride and satisfaction that we review the excellent work accomplished by our chapter in the year that has passed. Many and various have been our perplexities in this secind year of our organization, but we are now established upon a firm economic business basis. Our Chapter room is furnished in a manner that bears unmistakable evidence of an active desire on the part of our members to secure substantial benefits, while the decoratins are such as to delight the most artistic sense, and books of value, rare pictures and precious releics are still finding their way into this temple wherein are enshrined priceless treasures and holy memories. Now that we have set our house in order we are prepared to respond to appeals from abroad, for we consider it our duty to render necessary assistance to the various enterprises that are everywhere testifiying to the onward sweep of development and progress in the U. D. C. numerical strength we do not boast, but like the giant trunks of our stately oaks, we are firmly rooted, and as in their spreading branches we behold the outward growth of a inward fervor, our influence, widespread and gracious shall everywhere extend to bless and ennoble all within its sphere. As in our historical pursuits we become more familiar with the Confederate soldiers' record, we know their magnificent courage and sublime sacrifices could have been inspired only by that light that never hath shone on land or sea, and in silent reverence we bow before that figure in grey outlined against the eternal sky.
