A very pleasant time was had by
the members or. Mterpnse Ledjje iSe.
so at their meeting on Wednesday
nigut' last This was the oocasion of
the visit ot supreme representative
Garrett to thisIodge. JIauy of the
members of other lodgeg intheeity
contributed to the pleasure of the
evening by their pleasant and kind
words. Mr. Garrett, who has been
visiting the lodges of this order
throughout the State, delivered a very
interesting leoture, giving assurance
that the lodges and the order wherever
he had been, with very few exceptions,
were in a very flourishing oondition.
Mr. Gatrett was followed by the lion.
John M. Driver, Grand Leotnrer, yi a
short but eloquent address upon the
principle of the ordor, charity hope
and protection. Many of the visiting
members had words of cheer for their
brethren present, and all present left
at the close of the meeting realizing
"how good and how pleasant a thing
it is for brethren to dwell together in
unity." v ' ,
In consequence of a resolution
passed by the Supreme Lodge, it is
now the duty of every Master Work
man ot subordinate lodges to ask upon
the first meeting in every month: "lias
the last : beneficiary assessment been
forwarded to the Supreme Recorder?'1
As it not infrequently happens that a
whole lodge is suspended through the
Financier and Receiver's fault in not
sending assessments forward : at the
proper time.the above question should
be borne in mind and it should be seco
that it is put and answered.
The total membership of the A 0

benefit of both a State and a National

The chief point of interest in Rot

in walking or driving around its

A curious sight was the diminutive
carts, with dogs, either singly or in
pairs, harnessed to them, drawing
heavy loads, driven by women. It
seemed cruel that these dogs should
be forced to draw suoh heavy bur
dens. The oountless canals are filled with
orafts of the square, substantial

used for permanent dwellings by
families of moderate means, and
very pretty little houses they are, too,

pride taken in them by their owners.

Tbe streets are nicer and the build

the streets in the city radiate from the

from this also all the trains run out

without any regard for the sidewalks.
This custom was particularly interest

are always scrupulously neat, and with

quite attraotive. But their head
adornments are something astonish
ing, and one naturally wonders how
they can wear suoh extraordinary
things. Some of these were regular
helmets, made of brass, silver or gold;
others projected out like regular rolls,
or in other grotesque shapes, standing
out several inohes from the face, and
bait biding it. When 1 asked about
these strange head adornments, I was
told that they were worn by the
wealthy country people, and were a
source of great pride to their owners,
and that they descended is precious
