dispensed with their meetings during the warm
months. Several other chapters will probably
follow suit. When the excessive heat of the
last month is taken into consideration a very
small proportion of the lodges have called of.- "
The annual report of Mithras Lodge of Per
fection has been issued, and in every "detail is a
llattering success for the indefatigable and
hard-woiking staff of officers. The fourteenth
degree has been conferred during the past year
on fift3'-one candidates, and the lodge has only
lost one member by death, the Rev. William
Augustus Harris, thirty-third degree. At the
present time there are thirty-five candidates on
the way between the fifth and thirteenth de
grees. Active preparations aro already being made
among the Scottish Rite Masons for the session
of the Supreme Council for the Southern Juris
diction, which will be held in this city next fall.
The business of the body will be transacted at
the hall corner Third and E streets, while the
headquarters will probably be located in the
sanctuary on G street. The Supreme Council
is the soveriegu body of the Rite, and the meet
ings are attended by the most eminent of Scot- ,
tish Rite Masons in the country. Efforts are '
being made to have all of the thirty-second de
gree Masons properly uniformed, and a com- i
pany of between forty and fifty will be formed
under the command of Brother Joseph C. Tay
lor, thirty-third degree, who will be thoroughly
equipped with the full uniform and regalia of
their rank. This uniform is the most striking
and picturesque worn by any Masonic body,
and the effect of a large body of men clothed
in its rich and well-contra6ted colors will be
very beautiful and well worth seeing. The
pants and tunic are of white, with offreys of
gold embroidery; tho mantle, falling to the
knees, is of heavy red or black plush, according
to the rank: a slouch hat, with plumes, high
top bootfa of buff leather, and tho regulation
sword and belt complete the uulform. A very
low price has been contracted for and the cos
tume cau no doubt be ordered at a figure
which, when the costly material is taken into
consideration, is extremely cheap.
In many of the grand jurisdictions the Order
of tho Eastern Star, or the American Adoptive
Rite, 16 in a very flourishing condition. These
degrees, to which tho female relatives of Ma
sous are eligible, have, it is strange to say, never
met with much favor or created any enthu
siasm in the District of Columbia, although
their rituals are very attractive and tho asso
ciations extremely agreeable. Adoptive Ma
sonry first made its appearance in France in the
early part of the eighteenth century, and there 16
still'a legal and regular branch of the institution
in that country. The French Rite has four de
grees Apprentice, Companion, Mistress, and
Perfect Mistress. The offices of a Lodge of
Adoption aro a Graud Master and a Grand
Mistress, an Orator, an Inspector, an Inspect
ress, a Depositor, a Depositrex, a Conductor,
aud a Conductress. They wear blue collars
with a gold trowel pendant .therefrom, white
apron, and gloveB. 'Hie members also wear the
jewel of the order, which is a golden ladder with
live rouuds, on the left breust. Many of the
most distinguished ladles of Europe have been
and are now members of this order, among the
most celebrated beiug the Duchess of Bourbon,
the Empress Josephine, Lady Montague,
Duchess Elizabeth Chesterfield, and the Em
press Eugenie. Tho American Adoptive Rite i6
better adapted to the United States, and has ex
cited considerable interest and found many
powerful advocates iu this country. It consists
of live degrees Jephthah'e Daughter, or the
Daughters' degree, illustrating respect to tho
binding force of a vow; Ruth, or the Widow's
degree, illustrating devotion to religious princi
ples; Esther, or the Wife'6 degree, illus
trating fidelity to kindred and friends;
If eurlch's Extra Palo Lager. Ask foe it.
Martha, or the Sister's degree, illustrating un
dcvlatlng faith in tho hour of trial, and Electa,
or tho Benevolent degree, Illustrating charity
and courage, with patience and submission un
der wrongs. All of tho degrees together arc
called the "Bite of the Eastern Star,'' and aro
very beautiful and Impressive. Ladles who have
received these degrees have a ready and efficient
means of commanding tho services of Masons
whenever and wherever thoy may need them.
Tho moral teachings of the Eastern Star degree
are excellent, and cannot fall to make a good
impression. Notwithstanding there Is among
some Masons a strong feeling ngaiust any form
of Adoptive Masonry, it cannot be questioned
that the spirit of the ago demahds something of
tho kind. Masons cannot find a surer safeguard
for their wives, sisters, and daughters than is
furnished by the American Adoptive Bite, or
Order of the Eastern Star. To the objection
that the degrees aro not Masonic it may be re
plied that they arc as much so as any degree
outside the symbolic lodge. All degrees above
the first three aic Masonic only by adoption.

Naomi Lodge No. 1, D. of R., met last Mon
day night. The retiring Noble Grand, Mrs.
Martha E. Duvall, was presented with a beauti
ful bouquet of flowers and vase, as a token of
appreciation of the satisfactory manner iu which
she performed the duties of the office during the
past term. The Grand Master was also pre
sented with a similar token of regard.
Grand Representative Mark D. Brainard, who
has for many years ably represented this juris
diction in the Sovereign Grand Lodge, was
again reelected for the term of two years. The
fact that he was the unanimous choice of the
Grand Lodge is evidence of his popularity and
an estimate of the appreciation in which he is
held by all the members of the Grand Lodge.
The Grand Lodge is to be congratulated in
taking positive Eteps toward obtaining suitable
regalia. Five years ago Grand Master Crandall
first recommended that tho dilapidated articles
be replaced with new, and since then each
Graud Master has urged the matter unavail
ingly. The next grand visitation will probably
see the grand officers wearing the full regalia o'f
their office in compliance with the law.

Tho Latest Use to Which Paris Dames
QnToTut tlio Hypodermic Syringe.
Paris Letter in N. O. Picayune.
A curious hypodermic mania has taken hold
of a portion of Parislau femalo society. It is
nothing clso than the perfuming of tho flesh
aud blood of tho body. This curious result Is
obtained by tho hypodermic injection of a few
drops of tho most pungent essence. Tho fact
was discovered by one of the leaders of a cer
tain class, who was addicted to tho habit of
using morphine by Injection. Sho noticed that
after an unusually heavy dose of tho drug her
body exhaled very perceptibly its characteristic
odor. Iu tho spiritof curiosity she then charged
her ueedlo syringe with a fow drops of patch
ouli, and presently observed tho samo result.
So powerfully did her llcsh exhalo the perfume
that her linen was scented with it almost as
strongly as though tho extract had been sprin
kled thereon. She was highly delighted at tho
discovery, and for a time kept tho secret to her
self, using tho knowledge to Increase her at
tractiveness. But one day the trick was dis
covered by her maid, and soon It was in gen
eral use. Ladles of the grandc mondc, ever
ready to follow fashlous set by their supposedly
frailer 6isters, next took It up, and now tho
needle-point syringe Is a necessary part of
every toilet outfit.
The most curious effects are produced by the
habit. Some ladles keep themselves redolent of
one perfume, while others vary tho flavor ac
cording to occasion. Ono grandc dame, for in
stance, Is saturated with roses at dinner, with
jasmin at the opera, and with violets at tho ball.
Unfortunately tho habit is attended with con
siderable peril, chiefly in the form of blood
poisoning from Impure extracts, while some of
tho extracts are themselves poisonous. Several
ladies have been made seriously 111, and medical
authorities aro considering whether the legisla
ture may not properly prohibit the fashlou.

Thought He Had 'Em Again.
From the Philadelphia Press.
A Georgia man, Mr. Evaus, stood in tho
Glrard Cafe preparing to mail a letter, and had
just moistened two one-cent stamps when they
slipped from his fingers and fluttered to the
floor. Mr. Evans, who is a portly man, looked
at them in disgust, and then stooped to pick
them up. Before he could put his lingers upon
them, however, they began to move slowly
away from him along the floor. Ho drew back
ami gazeu. at tne spectacle witu astomsument
and horror. When they reached the side of the
room they began slowly to ascend the wall. It
is to be hoped that Mr. Evans is not given to
drink, but he hastened to the bartender at this
point and begged him to feel his pulse. When
he returned the stamps had risen half-way to
the celling, and were still gliding upward.
Happily for Mr. Evans's sanity, the bits of blue
paper just then altered their course aud began
to descend, and soon they were within reach of
nis nauu. ineu tue mystery was explained.

Cool Off With Hot Drinks.
From the Herald of Health.
It is a mistake to suppose that cold drinks are
necessary to relieve thirst. Very cold drinks,
as a rule, increase tho feverish condition of tho
mouth and stomach, and so create thirst. Ex
perience shows that hot drinks relieve the thirst
and "cool off" the body when it is in an abnor
mally heated condition better than ice-cold
drinks. It is far better and safer to avoid the
free use of drinks below sixty degrees; in fact,
a higher temperature is to bo preferred, and
those who are much troubled with thirst will do
well to try the advantages to bo derived from
hot drinks, instead of cold fluids to which thoy
have been accustomed. Hot drinks also have
the advantage of aiding digestion, instead of
causing debility of the stomach and bowels.
