toRCthcr several thousand of the members
of tho order from the western part of the

nnd Inviting every one to ceae from his

event and tho visitors.
It wn not later than S o'ctock when the
first visitors arrived In the city, ami from
that tlmo until lonir after the noon hour
there was a constant stream of humanity
In carrlaRcs, wairons, on horseback camo
pourlnp in from tho country and surround
lnff towns, whllo train after train ran Into
tho rlty with thousands aboard.
Never was a praetle.il example of philan
thropy launched under more auspicious
circumstances or more happy surround
lncs, or with brighter prospects for th
fulllilmont of nil that Is expected of It liv
those who luivo devoted timo and money
to having it founded. Tho Odd rcllows'
home of Missouri was founded for the
pmposo of sheltering nnd carlne for the
dependent ones of the older, their widows
mid oiphans. It Is the 1 espouse of the oi
lier to tho demand of the use for the
iiiactlcal fulfillment 01 the lesions taught
in tlio lodge room. It Is no am.ill credit
to tho Odd Fellows that they responded
with tho nlertness and liberality that has
characterized this affair. It was conceived
In tho hearts of the mcmbeis who love
deeds of kindness nnd charity; it was pur
chased with the money or the order con
secrated to the work of charity, and
opened under skies thnt could not have
lx-e-n brighter. Nature binlled on it and the
blessings of tho Oreat Father were de
voutly asked for the guidance of tho man
agement that It might bo Indeed n homo
whine all that was tnught In tho lodge
was exemplified In real Wo for tho bene
llt of those who might otherwise suffer.
It was a great day for Liberty and with
one necoid and one mind the citizens
turned out to make tho most of it. The
citizens had tnkon hold of the matter with
the members of the order anil committers
of arrangements were nt every point to
perform any service they might be called
upon to for the visitors. The citizens had
expected to h.tvo many thousand visitor)
for tho day. but the number that came
exceeded their expectations and had the
pilvato citizens not opened their splendid
homes nnd shared their hospital ty with
the viHitois, manv might have had trouble
to secure food. The ciowd filled the nub
ile square, the streets, the halls where
headquarters weie maintained and every
other place In tho city, and hundreds
went out to the homo in the morning
hours for the lest and quiet thut was not
obtalnublo in the city.
As it was. oveiy one was cared form tho
most elegant fashion. livery visitor was
satisfied with tho Ueatment received nnd

that It was Impossible to preparo for or

The crush caused a delay that was as
distasteful to the managers as to tho
audience, but finally everything vvas right

voked the divine blessing on the order
as'lavor Goldman was Introduced, and
made short Introductory remarks welcom
IHb the visitors to the city. The lodges
of the city, he said, appreciated the honor
of tho event and were mindful of the
responsibilities of the trust. No town
in the state was unworthy the home, but
the committee chose wisely, he thought,
when Liberty vvas selected. The home,
ho declared, was founded for the purpose
of doing good und If it added Its mite to
the sum of human happiness It would have
met the wish of its tupporters and Justl-
oa.i t,o ulutnm of its location.

(Applaue,l As the representative of the
order In the city nnd county I bid vou

spicious opening Indicates."
HespondlnK to the address Orand Master
Hueh Carnes, of Trenton, made a strong
address, The people or Liberty by their
ureat enterprise and liberality had won
the esteem and love of the members of
the order nnd the respect or the lodge,
They had done noble thlnss for the en
terprise, The world had seen mnny in
stances of the practical philanthropy from
private parlies, and slatelv unlorstlcs
nnd cnllcRes for the cultivation of the
Intellect were the results, but there was
something else to be desired nnd that was
to Ret a phllantliropv that takes the home
less little orphnns off the street and sixes
them nn education nnd fits them for the
duties of life. Private beneficence was very
pood and worthy of commendation, but
the work thus done did not cover th en
tire ground. And he hail often wondered
thnt some millions were not left to the
benellt of the orphans of the street.
The npe he said was a very praetlenl one
and 'demanded practical results. The world
was asklntr for a Oospel of works and less
theories. The work of relieving distress
anions the unfortunntes was one to which
the order particularly addressed Itself and
the vast sum tt paid out annually was In
nmount equal to J7 per minute during the
year. It was enougn to ugnicn some ones
sorrow nnd drv some tear and brighten
pome life and for the reason was worthy
the most r.irnest thought and care anc.
support of those who loved good deeds. To
keep the stream or blessing llowing was
one of the lines of work to which the renl
Odd Fellow was ever devoted. If the home
opened so grandly was the means of mak
ing hnppv the hearts of those who were
dear to the brothers In the lodge then the
greatest fl'orts for Its establishment was
well rewnrded. "God gives to each one,"
he declared, "some small sweet way io sui
tho world rejoicing," and ho thought the
noble acts of the people of Liberty In as
sisting in the founding of the home was
enough to set a full chorus of pralso go
ing. Dedication Seivlces.
Tho speeches being concluded the dedica
tion services were begun Grand Marshal
11. M. Alexander and Grand Heralds '.Mrs.
L. A. Deliolt, Allle II. I'oundstonc, Mrs.
M. L. llaxter and Mrs. It, L. Glmni. all In
full robes of otllee. came on the platform
and In the custom of the order bullded
with tho full ritualistic ceremonies the
Altar of the order. The lectin e Included
an extended historical sketch of the Altnrs
of history and after the ceremonial was
concluded the building was declared ready
for dedication. The keys of the building
were delivered to Grand Master Cnrnes
by President Shipley of the home and ac
cepted In a neat speech, arter which the
chaplain asked the Divine favor and pro
tection. The ritualistic dedication cere
mony took place with music Interspersed
In an Imposing manner. The charges nnd
acceptances and the acceptance of the keys
py tne presiuent oi me iiuuiu uui-i iii

services were concluded by a solo renderrrt
by .Miss I.lla jonnson, oi me ruinuie uui

wonderfully attractive, pleasant voice.

by Enterprise Lodge No. 432, of St. Joseph.
The gift was a life size portrait of Past
Gland Master it. .u. uerenMiiuie mm m

his labors for the loeatlQrf and opening of
the home. ...

Odd Fellowship in
Clay county dues back to March 5. 1631,
That lodge has remained ono of the actlvo
working bodies during all the long years
that have elapsed since that time It
owed Its origin to the actlvo Interest felt
and shown in the order by Madison Miller,
who was chosen as the first presiding of
ficer of the organization. II served as
such for many ears. He was a charter
member of the first Odd Fellows lodge
ever organized, that of Washington Lodgo
No, 1, at Haltlmore, April M. 1S19 Helng
one of the promoters of the order he
brought much enthusiasm into the work
and the right start given the; order has
borne great fruit In the remarkable activ
ity alwavs manifested In the work of the
different bodies In tho city. The order Is
strong In Clay county nnd embracek In Its
membership a very large per cent of the
prominent business and professional men
of the county.
I.oug in Contemplation.
Tor ninny years the Odd Fellows of tho
state have shown a deep Interest In the
proposition for the opening of a homo for
the widows and orphans of Odd Fellows.
It had been a stock problem for many
vears. At the meeting of the grand lodgo
in TOi tho matter was brought to the at
tention of the lodge and, being received
with great favor, ft wus decided to elect
trtistfei and take the first sten of rais
ing a fund for the founding of the home.
At once a dozen places In the state sprang
to the front with offers and Inducements
for tho location. The contest finally nar
inwed down to about half a do.en
places. A year ago the trustees gave no
tlce that propositions would be received
and the home located during tho year,
Tho committee visited the competing cit
ies, Liberty, Marshall. Warrensburg, Ne
vada and liutler, ami Inspected the sites
und the bids made for the home. The en
tire, summer was given to the matter, and
last September the committee met the rep
resentatives of tho competing cities, opened
the bids und announced that the offer made
by Liberty was far and awuy the be-st
one. but the announcement was not made
at that time. The members of the board
of trustees thut located the home are us
follows: II. P. Shipley. Springfield; T. P.
ltlxey, Jonesburg, 13. M. Alexander, Paris;
William T. Marshall. Charleston; W. II.
Woodward, Charles F. Vogel and Mrs. M.
L. Uaxter. St. Louis; Mrs. It. A. Deliolt,
Trenton; Major M. Uoldman, of Liberty.
Nevada hoped to still capture the homo
and kept up a very active cumpalgn until
the final meeting of the board In October
following. At the final meeting Nevada
maue a most gallant light for the honor,
but Liberty offered, as against a promise,
a building, greeted, linuhed and furnished,

It was In IS, Just ns the boom of Kan
sas City In suburban property was cooling
perceptibly, that Wlllard 13. Winner, with
other capitalists, conceived the Idea of
using the medicinal iitinlllies or the waters
of ifeed Springs. They organised a com
pany with ample capital, and proceeded to
erect n most elegant hotel of 110 rooms nt
Hint place. The building proper cost 2S.

more nt the time, were superb, for the
place was Intended to bo thefiis!ilinnble

and It was mnde nttiactlvo on the exterior
ami lnvelv within. It was gnrgecusly fur
nished, Its decorations were pronounced up
to date and the place opened Just In lime
to reielve the last traces of boom sup
port. It did a good business the llrst yenr.
and some for two years more, but It could
not last, and so when the plan of a home
was conceived, that enterprising citizen of
Liberty, Major M. (loldmnn, bended the
movement to purchase the Heed Springs
hotel, nnd not only secure tile home, but
locate the unfortunates the order desired
to help nt a place wheio medicinal waters
were flowing from the hills, to preserve
health. . ,,

Iain Jewell college nnd the rlty high school
offered free tuition to all Inmates of the
homo who desire to pursue a course of
study In the schools. The period of time
for such privileges Is lndelln.le, but those
who know the people of Liberty feel no
fear of that, as tho offer will not be conn

the trustees to' ake the home an Indus
