husband was master of the lodge, and
asked me if there was any objection to
using a large hall in our house, which was
an old manor house.
"I gave assent, and with a woman's cu
riosity hid myself in an adjoining bedroom,
where I could and did see the ceremonies
and heard the oath. The next day I ban
tered my husband upon the proceedings,
and ho nearly fell in a faint. 'You will
have to join the lodge,' he said. 'If this

KNIGHTS OF THE MACCABEES
Something About the Origin and Trogress
of tho Order.
Port Huron is the headquarter of the
order of the Knights of the Maccabees, a
fraternal beneficiary organization which
has become remarkably successful and pop
ular not only in the state but wharever it
has become known. The people of Port
Huron naturally feel quite proud of tho
institution, as nearly every able bodied,
physically qualified male citizen in the
city belongs to it. Tho 1.100 and over
members in Port Huron and Fort Gratiot
adjoining certainly show their confidence
in the organisation by taking and holding
a membership in it. Nearly three thousand
persons in the county of St. Clair are en
rolled as members of this ordor.
In 1831 the Knights of tho Maccabees
was organized and incorporated under a
special act of the legislature of the state of
Michigan. On Dec. 31 following the an
nual report of the society showed just 700
members m good standing. Tho report
endinc March SI, 1800, shows nearly 13,000
in tho state of Michigan alone, a remark
ably rapid growth. The society has paid
out in Michigan alone $3jO,(XW in death
benefits to tho widows and orphans of de
ceased members. Tha average cost per
$1,000 death benefit has been, during the
eight and a half years of its existence, less
than $4 on assessment account. What the
Maccabees particularly pride themselves
upon is that they have been able to pay all
death and disability claims within ten
days after proofs of death of tho member
have beon filed.
In lSi3 thesupreme tent was reorganized
under the laws of Michigan, and com
menced spreading the membership out
side of the state. It has mado wonderful
progress, showing now a membership in
other states outside of Michigan of over
17,000. notably in New York, Ohio, Penn
sylvania, Indiaua, Illinois, Missouri and
in tho province of Ontario, Can., which
together with the membership in tho
Michigan state jurisdiction makes a grand
total of over 32,010 members, the work of
less than nine jears. The supreme de
partment has p ad to the beneficiaries of
its deceased me mbers over 400,000, which
with tho amount paid out in Michigan
(330,00)) makes a grand total of over three
quarters of a million dollars. Bee Hive.

I heard William M. Ivins tell a story re
cently that illustrates his quickness to avail
himself of any resource at hand. He was
at Albany ono day when all persons but
state officers were excluded from the floor
f the senate. Disregarding the regula
tions Ivins found his way upon the floor
and was presently asked, "Are you a state
officer" "Yes," said Ivins, "I'm a notary

THE LARCHMON1 YACHT CLUB.
How It Has Flourished in the Last Tea
Years Tne Kew Building.
In taking a bird's eye view of the various
yachting clubs of the United States tho
Larchmont Yacht club would probably be
selected as being the most complete type of
the American yacht club In the first place,
the location is about as desirable a place as
could have been selected anywhere. Where
Long Island sound widens out from Man
hattan Island, just beyond New Rochelle,
the waters have formed tho harbor of
Larchmont. To the eastward is the low
reach of Flagler's Point, and to the north
stretches the rolling wooded country of
THE CLUTi BUrLDTKO.
The present club boose stands fnefag-Uhe
harbor and Long Island sound, end is open
all winter, for, as it is near New York, the
members can take a frusty outing and sit
before a blazing fire in winter whenever
they get tired of tho city.
But the most curions thing about the
clnb is the way it was started. W. S. Al
ley, one of tho ex-commodores, wbo Ered
at Larchmont Manor in tho summer of
18S0, rowed out ono Sunday marxdnir to his
yacht to fix things up a little, and wbfie so
engaged was lectured from tie shore byan
old lady who, together with a small body
of church goers, worshiped in a graft'
building down on the water's edge.
This nettled Alley, and he proposed that
an organization should ba formed then and
there, and if the members wanted to take
a look over their boats Sunday morning
their combined forces would be sufficient
to resist the ardor of an old lady. All tha
land about Larchmont Manor, including
the little building used for ittligious ser
vices, was straightway bought up, and thus
the Larchmont Yacht club was born.
THE MAIN IIALL.
Two yeara ago the Carner mansion, ad
joining the old club houso, was purchased,
the building and land costing about $100,
000. The old Carner building was reno
vated and additions made, and it now
makes ono of the most finished club houses
in the country. It is fitted up with oak,
and handsomoly furnished throughout.
There are twenty-eightsleeping apartments
for the accommodation of members. The
accompanying cats, taken from Outing,
will give tho reader a good idea of the ap
pearance of the club house.
The cablegram from Sydney, N. S. W.,
reading that a sculling match has been ar
ranged between Peter Kemp, the Austra
lian, and William O'Connor, of Canada,
impresses aquatic circles that O'Connor
has at last carried his point in rowing
some one there, e en though it has taken
him nearly two months to do it. The actions
of the Australian oarsmen have looked as
though they did not wish to run the risk
of having the championship leave that
In tho opinion of Edward Hanlan, tho
coming champion oarsman is McLean, tho
Australian, who measures forty-four
inches around the chest, and, as Hanlan

A Kansas woman with a business like

"What for?" inquired Cramer, seeing
nothing besides the child.
"That's what!" said the woman, plump
ing her baby down on the shelf in front o
the open wickerwork. "I'll call for it
about noon. Giinmo tho check; I'll call for
it soon and I'm in a hurry just now."
"Oh, no!" said the check stand agent,
looking wise, "I guess not. That's an old
racket In a new guise. I'm looking for no
chance to adopt a kid just now." And
ihen Cramer looked wiser than ever for a
few moments and until the woman
thumped his desk with her fist and ex
claimed: "I'm going to check this baby or have
trouble. It's none of your business whether
it's a baby or a valiso." Then she laid tho
baby on the shelf, smoto at Cramer twice

Soda "Water as a lieveragt?.
r"or beverages, instead of the cheap soda
water, with its corrosive ingredients and
sirups made from spoiled fruit, insist on
having pure lemonade or fruit juices. Good
soda water, as offered by the best city
druggists or any man who understands his
business, is not a bad thing for health or
taste, although caution ought to be used
not to pour down a large class of iced
drink when one is warm, after the almost
invariable habit. The rule with every
body, men and women alike, seems to be
to see how soon they cau swallow the soda
and depart. Tho result of turning a pint
of cold, acid water into a heated stomach
is to burden it with too much liquid, re
duce the temperature -with dangerous sud
denness, and headache or cramps is in the
direct line after this. Shirley Dare in New

Matches are another creat item of ex
pense in running a hotel. We buy them
by the gross boxes, and use thousands of
them every day. About three out of every
four guests at a hotel when they call for a
box of matches put the box in their pock
ets. I have sent half a dozen boxes to one
room in as many days. The guests think
it is all right to carry off the matches, but
when you fijmre up what a year's supply
costs you will find it to be hundreds of dol

that a hotel Tr-rnager has to look out for,
