On lar t Friday night the Knights Tem

publlcally installed the olllcers recently
elected for the ensuing year. The occa
sion was oue long to be remembered by
the Sir Knights, and by ill thoe who
were present at the ceremonies.
Thu Sir Knights have Just removed
from the rooms so long occupied by them
to new and commodious quarters in the
third story of Dr. Warduer's new build
ing on Commercial avenue. The asy
lum Is a very large and handsome apart
ment ; the floor is covered with a Yery
beautiful carpet, the wall calsomlned In
a grey tint, and in fine contrast with this
Is the deep border ot crimson and
gilt, which finishes the edge of the
walls next tho ceiling.
The decoration of the walls and the
painting of the drapery behind tho plat
form on which are the seats of the Emi
nent Commander, the Generalissimo aud
the Captain General, and also the paint
ing of the canopy above, were under tho
immediate charge of Mr. Thorn. Nixon,
artist. The chair of the Eminent Com-
mauder, the Gcaerallilino and the Cap
tain Oeneral, are elegant specimens of
the cabinet-makers' and upholsterers' art
The armory is a beautiful room
carpeted warmly; the cases for the
ttlr llulgUl' uniform are of
black walnut, with plate glass
fronts. The dining-room is furnished
with table, chairs, stove, etc.
Behind the Armory Is a ball-room, ca

The ceremony of installing Eminent

Sir Knight P. W. Barclay. Eminent
Commander Dunning, after being con
ducted to hi chair ot ofllce, continued
the Installation of the other officers elect
The ceremony was Impressive to a de
gree. The Sir Knights made a very 1m
posing appearance. The unilorm of the
order is strikingly handsome, and was
worn on Friday night by a very fine
looking body ol men
Dr. Dunning, on the conclusion of the
installation of ofllcerd, thanked the
Knights Templar for the high honor
they had conferred on him by electing
him for thu third consecutive time, their

gratulate ourselves that during thes
degenerate days, while dishonesty seems
to have become the rulu Instead of the
exception, and public virtue Is almost a
inmg oi tne past; wane morals aim in
tegrity have been measurably dethroned,
and greed and gold have been set up to
occupy their places in public esteem;
within our noble order the converse has
been true, and the moral standard of the
order of Knighthood has beeu steadily
advanced. At no time in the past has
the order been in as good condition as
to-dav. Wliile our ranks have crown
tronger with the increase of the popula
tion, a better observance of Kulghtly
courtesies have beeu practiced and ex
acted, aud obedience to the moral law has
been more rigidly observed.
When Eminent Commander Dunning
had concluded his remarks, Sir Knight
P. W. Barclay arose to say a few words
which he considered appropriate ou the
occasion of this event in lis history ot
the order. He did not Intend to report
the same speech which thotepresetit had
heatd him deliver on former similar oc
casions ho had iuteuded to prepare and
deliver an interesting and eloquent ad
dress, which would as it were, hold en
chained the ears and hearts of tho?e who
heard him ; but circumstances bad pre
vented hltn from carrying out
his Intention and hu lmi there
fore engaged a substitute who
was to hae given them an ddreAts which
would lu every way have been worthey
of the occasion, and would Jhave con
tained some interesting point in thu
history of the Cairo Commandery, but
tills also, unkind fate had Interfered to
prevent, and ho would niako tho
few remark which were becoming and
proper himself. (At this Juncture, Sir
Knight McGce appeared, bearing in his
arms, something, the pectators knew not
what, which he dcpo.Ited on tho floor
soma distance in front of Em, Com,
C. W. Dunning. Ho then proceeded
to take away the wrapper
of the mysterious object and
there was reveuled to the astonished

goblets and bowl lined with gold.) This,
continued Mr. Barclay, who had waited
a moment, is presented by thu members
of tho Cairo Commandery to Eminent
Commander Dunning as a testimonial of
the appreciation which the Sir Knights
feel for his past sci vices as an ofllccr,
and the estimation they hold hi in lu as a
In response to the remarks of Mr. Bar
clay. Eminent Commander Dunlng said :
"Mlr Knlghts-lt has not often hap
pened lu the course of my life that my
tongue has refused to perform its office,
but my companions of the order of
Knights Templar, and tbo ladles and gen'
tlemen hero present, will believe me'
wheu I say that the surprise which
I am laborlug under nnd the pride
1 am certainly JuttitUd in feeling at this
cvldenco of your partiality for me, de
ters me from giving that expression to
my feelings that 1 feel the occasion de
serves. "Out of the fullness ol the heart
the mouth s peaks th" says the good book,
but it would certainly wear out two good
squaro mouths if I were to say all I feel.
I should like to say something to the
ladies on this occasion hut I see that Mrs.
Dunning lis her eye on me and ou tins
beautiful pitcher too and I will desist.
Sir KnlgliU, I thank you most heart II v
for this substantial evidence oflha klndl'v
feeling feelings you entertain toward inc.
This closed the speech making, nud
the ladies and gentlemen immediately
went forward to examine the Eminent
Commanders gift aud to congratuuvt:
its owner. On each piece Is engraved
"To Eminent Sir C. W. Dun
