The Shrine's Excursion.
When Captain Blake gave the signal to the
pilot of the Macalester last Monday evening
and the three blasts on the whistle announced
the departure of the steamer there were fully
fourteen hundred friends of Almas Temple on
board whose countenances denoted' that they
were anticipating the attractions of tho even
ing with a rare degree of enjoyment. The only
incident which marred the pleasure of the de
parture was that Nobie E. B. Hay, after mak
ing a desperate sprint from the cable-car, ar
rived on tho wharf just too late to board the
steamer. Too much praise cannot be awarded
the executive committee, Nobles L. C. Wood,
chairman; George H. Walker, Jesse F. Grant,
Abram Frey and John H, Olcott, for the ex
cellent programme which wob 60 successfully
carried out. The different events were so ar
ranged as to hold the Interest of everybody.
On the down trip the Sand Sifters, Nobles
Harry Standlford, A. B. Coolldge and E. G,
Schafer, were kept busy registering the guesees
of the ladles as to the number of beans which
had been concealed In a jar of sand by Noble
J. W. Ross, District Commissioner, The five
prizes for the nearest guesses M'ere awarded
on the return trip. The most important event
of the evening immediately followed the ar
rival at the Hall: The ladles present were
conducted to the new dancing pavilion, where
they were informed the degree, "Daughters of
Arabia," was to be conferred. The entiance
was closed by a sombre black curtain, Tho
ladies were admitted to the floor, their escorts
for the time being occupying the balconies.
The pavilion presented a solemn appearance,
Its only light being the dim rays, affoded by
Chinese lanterns. The southeast corner was
made Into a small compartment, behind which
mysterious preparations for tho degrco wero In
progress, while tho southwest corner was oc
cupied by tho chamber of torture and sacri
With an emphatic thump of the gavel the
Lord Chancellor, F, G. A loxandcr, commanded
silence, and n short colloquy between himself
and Noble Abram Frey, tho director and
author of this admirable degrees, opened tho
fun, General J. E. Smith, being introduced as
tito Vonable Patriarch, explained tho plot
and administered a blood-curdling obligation
to the classes of candidates which included
tho entire number of ladles on the floor. As
a test of their courago they wero conducted to
tho apartment of tho Surgeon General, Dr.
Hamilton E. Leach, nnd caused to dip their
ungloved hands Into a crucible of molten
lead, well represented bv hnrmlcss quicksilver
over an alcohol lamp. Tho first trial having
beonlsucccssfully passed Miss Nullo Yost was
selected as a champion of her sisters to bear
tho tortures of tho succeeding horrors and with
commendable fortitude she walked over
planks bristling with rusty nailB. Jumped from
n ladder representing ono of tho pyramids,
and successfully forded a wldo nnd turbulent
stream. To cxompllfy tho manner In which
tho Shrine Insists on Implicit obedienco Miss
Magglo Yost, who refused to 6Ubmlt to the
Initiatory exercises, was taken Into tho sacri
ficial pavilion by tho stern and unrelenting
guards. Tho curtains wero withdrawn dis
playing her body severed In twain, but tho
smllo upon tho pretty countenanco of the fair
sufferer showed that she was merely the victtm
of a very clever stage illusion. This horrifying
spectacle closed tho degree and all wero In
vited to partake of tho hospitality of tho
Temple, In the old pavilion where Noble
George Budd, with a score of waiters,dlspensed
cooling edibles to tho guests. A programmo
of eight dances ended tho entertainment at
tho hall. On tho return trip pretty favors
were distributed among the ladtes "and the
winners in the guessing contest announced.
The number of beans in tho jar was found to
bo fifty-two. Mrs. Harry Standlford who
named this figure, received tho first prize, an
elegant pair of opera glasses; Mrs. C. A.
Goodman, second prize, a handsome lamp;
Miss A. Bates, third prize, vases; Mrs. A. M.

DIDN'T WAIT TO HEAR IT.
The Point of the Conversation "Was Too
A large, middle-aged raau, with a kind of
how-are-you-everbody look on his big, round
face, stepped Into a Southside street car yes
terday morning and sat down by the side of a
laddery youth whom, after a few remarks ot a
preliminary nature pertaining to the weather,
he addressed In this btyle:
"I reckon you were born and raised a blonde,
warn't you, joung man ?"
"I 1 suppose so," answered the other.
"I don't often make mistakes about things
of that kind," rejoined tho large man, heartily.
"I can spot a blonde as far as I can see him.
And there's another curious thing about that,"
he added, turning half around In his seat,
crossing one leg over tho other and growing
confidential. "Nature never makes any mis
takes, either. When nature gives a young fel
low a sort o' pinky Bkln and light brown hair
she doesn't give him a blue-black mustache.
That's why "
Tho slender youth hastily crossed the car
and sat down on the other side.
"You're right," said the cheerful middle
aged party, following him over. "It's alto
gether too sunny on that side. Now. this
thing of a blue-black mustache on a blonde
face, you know, with light eyebrows, and "
"I'd like to know what difference," Inter
rupted the now painfully blonde young man
fiercely, "It makes to you "
"Certainly, Certainly. That's what I was
coming to. Lord bless you, I've got a nephew
nearly as old as you are, I reckon, and he's
got a regular sponge-cake complexion, you
know one of these tallowy, waxy sort of
skins that go with light, tow-colored hair.
They call him Sorreltop. Well, that chuckle
head went up town one day and paid a barber
twenty-five cents to dye his mustache. When
ho got home "
"Say! Look hero? What do I care about
your nephew "
"That's just exactly what I'm getting at.
He had a blue-black mustache like yours, and
he looked like "
"Conductor 1" yelled tho young mau, "let
me off at the noxt crossing 1"
"And ho looked Hko a streak of perdition
on a full moon," continued the middle-aged
man pleasantly. "No, sir, I tell you, young
But the young chap, without waiting for tho
next crossing, jumped off.
Flop 1 Kerilop 1 Kerilopflop !
The car was going at the rate of 12 miles an
When he picked himself up he felt of his
blue-black mustache to see if it was all there.
Then ho picked up his hat.
And he stood in the middle of the track and
swore at tho Hying cable car until he had to
get out of tho way for the next one.

hope long sinco blighted. We letncmber how
thon wowouldhavoscornedto lie and deceive,
Now It is the burden of our dHity conversa
tion. 'Tis true, wo aie not tho uncouth, awk
ward, clumsy, unkempt, and hoinu-spun
farmer boy of a dozen years ago. These
things havu been replaced to somo extent by
an easier manner and a better fit, but boncatfi
this Improved exterior Is a dwarfed, selfish
nature that makes us try to Blink away and
hide from ourselves when old scones suggest
tho manly, honest, fiankboy of 14. And thou
how wo nottco tho flight of tlmo when wo re
turn to our old homes. Tho beardless boy
whom wo loft torturing Insects and torment
ing frogs Is now called "papa," and tho Httlo
girl wo remember in short dresses now has
a real livo doll who calls her "mamma."
Somo thlncs, however, seem to havo grown
smaller. Tho old bam that, according to our
early ideas, was about tho most imposing
structure lu existence, now seems about ono
tonth of Its original size. Tho roads seem so
nurrow, tho trees so low, tho lanes so short,
tho fields so small. The world lt6olf has bo
como Infinitely smaller since those childhood
days, and now those faraway and almost
mythical countries that our early imagination
used to picture as fairyland have becomo very
real and very near. And ut nttrht everything
seems so peaceful and quiet. As tho twilight
deepens tho cricket begins his same restful
old song, tho night owl in the grove near
by sends forth his accustomed wall, tho
fireflies Heck tho meadows with their uncer
tain light, tho droning of insects and the
whirring of bats In tho air above produces for
tho first few nights In the country a strango
fooling. We drop lpto reverie and picture
familiar scenes and familiar faceB. Wo are
again bareheaded and barefooted making dust
heaps and sand piles in the road, climbing
trees, or with our favorite dogs scouring tho
Holds and woods for mlco, rats nnd othor small
game, or wo arc wading up and down the little
stream back ot the orchard stoning frogs and
water 6nakes. Thon night comes and wo sco
tho dear, patient face again and feel her gen
tle arms arouud us as she tucks us in and
kisses us good night; wo see that same sainted
face once more as It lies cold In death. Then
we experience again that stifling, desolate
feeling, too deep to show In tears, as wo stand
by tho open grave and watch It swallow up
what Eeems to us now all that Is worth living
for. Then come those long, cheerless days
when our pent-up grief 6eems to choke us.
When existence becomes even to our youth
ful, happy natures a burden and we almost
wish we could go with her. Then come several
years of inefficient household supervision.
Everything is neglected. Everything goes
wrong. Finally It dawns upon us that wo are
to havo a new mother, and how mortified,
pained and humiliated we feel. Then ono
day sho" is brought homo and now we feel
moro miserable and gloomy than ever. We
see those thousand little things that we loved
desecrated by others' hands. But we gradu
ually soften. We have been too prejudiced.
Our mother is kind to us and does all she can
for our comfort, but we feel no one can ever
take tho place of our real mother. Then we
go oil to college, and only come home for our
vacations, and so I sit In the twilight and
gradually dream my boyhood self Into my
Ereqent self and I awaken with a start, for,
ehold ! I have almost finished this letter and
havn't said a word about Europe. But,
pre6to 1 and now we are nearing the greatest
city on the clobe, twice as large as New York
and Brooklyn combined, twice as great a
population as Paris and nearly four times as
large as Berlin or Vienna. My diary: "Ar
rived at King's Cross Statiou at 4:80 p. m.,
walked to the Strand and engaged a room for
a week at No. 17 Cecil street, took a wash
and went to dinner at a restaurant on the
Strand, after which walked to the Houses of
Parliament, Buckingham Palace and St.
James Park, retuinedhy way of the celebrated
Victoria Embankment" and in the evening
went to Her Majesty's Theatre, saw the divine
