Companion A. W. Johnston, the excellen
Scribe of Columbia Chapter No. 1, his found
it necessary, owing to an affection of the
vocal cords, to abstain from any Masonic
work necessitating the continued use of his
voice for a considerable period, although the
rest has proven very beneficial and his son or
ous periods are almost as well rounded at the
presdnt time as when he was in the full en
joyment of the resoDant toneB of his full and
mellow first bass vocalization. At the meet
ing of the Shrine Wednesday evening ho found
it necessary, with many regrets, to resign his
part in the ritual to Noble David G. Dixon,
who, however, acquitted himself most credit
ably in the onerous duties of conducting the
timid and unwary candidates through the
tangled paths of mystery which surround the
secrets of the Shrine.
The trembling band of candidates who met
Wednesday evening received a reprieve from
the electrocution which awaited them, and
instead of being put through the terrible
ordeal of the initiatory exercises of tho Shrino
they were invited down stairs to partake of
the banquet which Noble J. H. Trimble had
prepared. Tbo warm weather and absence of
several officers from tho city was the cause of
the postponement of tho degree. The as
sembled Nobles did full justice to tho repast.

A KATTLiER IN HIS SHIRT.
The Terrible Experience of a Man 'Who
Was Camping Out.
"About two weeks ago I was camping with
a party on tho shore of LhKu Erie not far from
Ashtabula," said Geoio Wilson, a mill
worker, yesterday. "Shortly after wo had re
tired one evening I heard a peculiar whtrring
sound which I recognized at once. 'There Is
a rattlesnake In camp,' I exclaimed, 'lam go
ing to get up.' 'Hush,' came tho word slowly
hissed through the teeth from a companion
nGar mo. 'Tho snako has crawled Into my
shirt bosom.' This was said very softly, and
we were almost paralyzed with fright at tho
prospect. Wo were all afraid to stir for fear
the reptile would take alarm and striko ita
victim. It crawled over his body good
naturcdly, evidently enjoying tho warmth, for
the night was a little raw. At times the
snake's head was close to his face, as ho told
us afterward. He feared tho motion of his
chest up and down in breathing would stir up
the animal, and ho tried hard to breathe as
little as possible. Finally tho snako crawled
toward tho fire, and in an instant tho whole
camp was up. One seized a c lub and broke
tho reptile's back beforo it could mako a
spring. It measured nearly five feet.
"Tho man who had tho terrible exporienco
collapsed like a rag after the experience was
over. During the ordeal we were all surprised
at tho coolness and nerve ho displayed. With
all danger past, he fell Into a faint, but ho was
FAMOUS FOR EXTRAVAGANCE.
Some of tho Doings of Vitolllus, tho
As a glutton Vitolllus is easily first. In
eight months ho squaudered the Incrodlblo
6um of $20,000,000 on feasting alone. At his
table appeared ever delicacy of tho day brains
of nightingales and peacocks, heads of parots,
tongues of thrushes and flamingoes, roes of
lampreys, etc. He kept six ponds for red
mullet and paid thousands for a fish of any
extra size. His cooks had salaries ten times
as largo as his tutors, and his dancing girls
wero paid 100 times as much as his cooks.
In striving to beat this record the crazy
young Elagabalus mashed his peas with
grains of gold, stirred his beans with amber,
and mixed pearls with his rice. When at tho
seaside he would not touch fish, but when far
inland ho had his army supplied with fresh
roo. His 6hoes sparkled with rubles and
sapphires, and ho was tbo first Roman to wear
a complete suit of silk, His chariots were of
gold studded with precious stones, and yet ho
grew so tired of life after four years of this
splendor that ho contemplated committing
suicide by a golden dagger inlaid with
omoralds. Tho soldiers saved him the troublo
by killing him with a plebeian iron sword.
