It has been decided to make this meet
ing an application to make this meet
an application night, and for that
purpose an open meeting for men will
be held. A large hall will be secured
and a suitable program arranged. Head
Consul Boak will, of course, deliver the
principal address and Organizer Stretch
will speak on the results of the cam
paign. It has been a whole year now
since the head consul has visited Los
Angeles, and as the head of the order
he will receive a fitting reception. Head
Adviser Veale and Organizer Martin
will doubtless be present,
I Organizer Stretch is entitled to more
than passing observation for the splen

to fit into the niche and everyone has
a kind word for him and is willing to

most attractive of places, and many

an enthusiastic meeting, and Neighbor
James was elected adviser lieutenant

installed him on the spot. This camp
lias requested the organizer to devote
two or three days to it and has prom

Honored Official of the
Guards of Royal Court
WILLIAM E. RIGGS, LIEUTENANT GENERAL ROYAL COURT GUARDS
WHILE holding the commission of
lieutenant general of the Royal
Guards of the Royal Court,
William E. Rlggs Is more widely
known under the title of captain, and
it ia the latter title that has brought
him more honors than any other. The
pride of the "captain" is Company D,
Royal Guards, which was organized
about a year ago, and today is one of
the best drilled companies on the
coast. Los Angeles assembly Is justly
proud of its guards, and their appear
ance on the floor in natty scarlet
tunics, hussar caps and carrying out
the colors of the order ia always a
signal for applauso of tho wildest sort.
Covering a period of five years, drilling
many teama for different orders in Los
Angeles, always successful in putting
winning teams on the floor, both for
exhibition and In competition, the
guards of company B are the result of
the "captain's" experience, and It Is
the opinion of many experts who have
seen them drill that there are few, If
any, companies of guards that could
win over them in competition. Pico
assembly is organizing a company, and
as Courtier Rlggs is a member of that
assembly, he will get them ready for
work. , •
Tho meeting of Pico assembly, No. 8,
on last Tuesday evening was one of
the largest attended ever held by that
assembly. Over sixty per cent of

of the evening. Past Chancellor Bruce

reach Los Angeles until later In the

The Guaranteed I
Electric Iron 1
Of all the modern devices for the housewife's convenience and B
comfort the electric iron is one of the most important. It u
makes the drudgery of ironing day a thing of the past. It n
saves half of the labor and permits one to remain at the iron- 8
ing board and easily finish the day's work at an earlier hour I
with no running about and loss of energy. No hot stove to H
keep the room overheated. We have taken control of the best g
electric iron made. ||
It's known as the "Guaranty", electric iron. A signed guar- I
antee goes with every one. The Guaranty iron is cast in one H
piece—no joints to loosen, waste heat or catch in the fabric, if
These irons contain no asbestos or wire therefore with no H
asbestos (which absorbs moisture) there is nothing that can g
rust out the iron. With reasonable care the Guaranty Electric H
Iron will never wear out. The Guaranty Electric Flat Iron is B
most economical in use. The cost is low and only a little cur- M
rent is needed at the time the heat is desired. Price $5. Ab- ■
solutely guaranteed for one year. f|
Before you order an electric iron see the Guaranty. It's the ||
best of all. ■< B
