evening, tho 27th instant, at 7 o'clock, for
the election of officers for the ensuing three
years and the transaction of such other bus
iness as may bo presented.
Through an error in last Sunday's issue the
election iu one of the lodges was merged into
the remains of a Shrine notice and the treas
urer was made to travel the hot sands of the
desert for seventeen terms. This a physical
impossibility as one trip is sufficient to test
the endurance of the most robust candidate,
reinforced by a course of training and an acci
Mecca Temple Nobles of the Mystic Shrine,
of New York C(ty, are arrranging for a mid

Florida. The excursion will be limited in
numbers and will travel throughout in a
special train of Pullman cars. About ten

day each in Atlanta, Ga.; Jacksonville, Fla.,
and three days and a half in tho ancient city
of St. Augustine. Stops wH also be made at
the principal cities of the South, the Nobles of

royal Southern welcome. It is understood
that several prominent Shriners of this city
will be in the party which will arrive here on
Saturday, January 10.
Mount Vernon Chapter No. 3 will devote
the convocation of Monday evening to the
reception of petitions.
The time-honored custom of assembling on
Christmas Day to exchange fraternal greetings

the United States was observed at 12 m. on
that day at the Oxford, by Eminent Com
mauder J. K. Robinson and the officers and
L,past commanders of Columbia Commandery
No. 2. The sentiment:
A merry Christmas to our Grand Master.
With loyal Krectinjrs of each broad State
From Quoddy Head to the Golden Gate.
The Grand Master at Lebanon, Pa., sent the
following response: "May Christmas Day, en
circling our limited world like a magic riue,
find in each Templar's heart the lull measure
of kindness and love. May all evil be ex
cluded and tho God of peace and happiness
reign everywhere and bless every home."
Tuesday evening Lebanon Lodge No. 7 will
confer tho 1st and 2d degrees at a special com
munication. After the holidays tho different bodies will
settle down in earnest to tho work of tho com
ing year, which even at this early date bids
fair to be very prosperous aud successful.
At the last raeetlnir of Almas Temple forty
eight candidates made tho weary pilgrimage
of tho desert. Every Templar who is going
to Denver will take tho Shriner degree as a
preparatory step and the chapeau and fez
combined will insure tbem a glorious wel
come throughout the West.

"I novor rogrottcd anythlug In my lifo moro
than I did being the Innocent causo of a man's
committing suicide," said Danlol Doxter, su
perintendent of tho wlurf at tho ferry, to an
Item manufacturer. "I was mate of tho old

and wo wore oft Desoktion Island In tho In
"Storms wero frequent In that part of tho
world, and when ono gets a whale, ono has
to got hlra on board very quick or it will bo
lost. Ono day a whalo was slghtod, and
thrco boats wero lowered for tho chase. My
boat mado tho best time nnd reached tho big
fish flrat, but just as I was about to glvo him
tho harpoon, he giro his tail a swish aud
knocked the boat all to pieces.
"I was knocked senseless and hd my right
arm broken just below tho elbow, nnd
would certainly havo bceti drowned had
not ono of tho mtn dragged me ou top of tho
boat, aud, assisted by the rest, i was hold
above water until we were 'picked ut) by an
"When the ship was retched tho captain
pronounced mo a dead man, and I was laid
out on tho cabin lloor. In tho meantime a
storm sprang up and all hands set to work to
reduce sail and no one was left in tho cbln
but tho negro steward, llo paid very little
attention to me, having his dishes to look out
for, aud when he had secured them he went
ou deck to assist In shortening sail. While
they were doing this I camo to my senses
and managed to crawl out on deck.
"By that time it was dark ami a heavy gale,
accompanied with thunder aud lightning, was
ragiug. I staggered to the main fifo-rail, and
while standing there tho steward camo aft.
Just then a loud peal of thunder was heard
and tho sky was lighted up by a brilliant Hash
"Iho poor steward saw me standing by tho
mainmast, and, as the captain said I was dead
aud ho had left me stretched out ou the cabiu
floor, he at once coucluded he had seeu a
ghost. With a yell that was onouuh to scaro
tho hair off a doc, ho rushed blindly forward
and did not stop until ho reached the top
gallant forecastle, aud before any one could
realize what ho was about to do tho crazed
negro leaped into tho sea. Several ropes wero
thrown, but be was uevcr seen again. No
boat could live in tho soa then running, aud
none was lowered. As soon as tho captain
saw mo ho took me into the cabin and set my
arm as well as bo could, and in a fow weeks I
was able to work airain. Yes, sir, tho cook
took me for a veritable ghost, and was scared
so badly that he jumped overboard."
Feeling: of the Musses Toward President
San Francisco Call.
Ono of the arrivals on tho San Juau a few
days ago was P. II. Gilbert, a commission
merchant ot Acapulco, who is staying at tho
New Western Hotel.
"There is much discontent among tho
masses in Mexico," said Mr. Gilbert last
night, "and I should not bo surprised if there
was another revolution within a year. Presi
dent Diaz, by the aid of tho soldiery, keeps
the people subservient. They submit to his
authority solely through fear.
"lie has beeu President wo terms, and
would like to bo re-elected at tho next elec
tion, but the people don't want him. The
feeling of dissatisfaction is kept in check and
prevented from assuming formidable propor
tions becuuse it is known that Diaz could
easily suppress any movement bordering upon
"Tho President is a man ot prompt and de
cisive action. A few wcel.6 ago ho detailed
General Roja with a detechment of soldiers
to capture a bandit named Garza, who had
long been the terror of the border residents.
Information was brought to the ears of the
President privately that Roja was unfriendly
to the Government and the General was
promptly recalled. The next day he was
shot a rapid retribution.
"In tho State of Guerrero, Diaz is almost
invariably alluded to as 'Emperor' showing
the popular estimate of his autocracy. He
has no lack of firmness, especially In his treat
ment of his enemies, and in some respects ho
is the best President Mexico has over had. Ho
is harsh and cruel though, and is a practical
exponent of the views of those who believe
that tho Mexican character is unsuited to a
government maintained in accordance with
The Newest Industry.
"Please, mem, I'm a poor little boy tryln'
to help mo mudder. Won't you glvo me yer

peal that many havo frequently listened to of
late. Tho little fellow who thus seeks to help
his "mudder" is not over 7 years old. Ho has
a bright, interesting face, which is always
clean, and his clothes, though well patched,
aro neat, no Is loth to accept gifts ot money,
but be solicits old newspapers on tho theory
that after they aro a few days old they aro uso
less to their owners and aro bound to find
their way into tho firo. He sells them to
tailors ard small shopkeepers for twenty cents
per hundred, and he makes from forty cents
to $1 each week that way. Ho has worked
up what ho calls a "cumf'table route," and ho
makes his rounds twice a week with a vory
cheerful, though business-llko air.
