The person signing the advertisement frequently calls the meeting to order, and leads in the organization; any one, however, may lead.

The chairman thus elected, takes the stand, announces the election of officers will now be in order, and suggests the nomination of some suitable person for secretary; also for other necessary officers. These motions are put to a vote by the chairman; after which, measures are at once taken to effect either a permanent or a temporary organization. 2. EXAMPLE OF A TEMPOEAEY OEGANIZATION.t J As.
