LODGE OF SORROW.
Newberry Elks Pay Beautifully Sol
emn and Impressive Tribute to
Memory of Departed Dead.
Newberry Lodge, No.1103, B. P.
0. Elks on Sunday afternoon paid a
beautifully selemn and impressive
tribute to its departed dead. The
exercises were held in the opera
house, which was appropriately ar
ranged for the occasion.
Newberry Lodge has lost only one
member during the past year-Alex
ander T. Brown, a man who was
loved by his brother Elks, by the
people of Newberry, and by all who'
Exalted Ruler Fred H. Dominick
presided at the memorial session
Sunday afternoon, and every officer
was in his station. There was a full
attendance of the members of the
Lodge, and there were several Elks
present from Columbia and other
sections of the State. The city of
Newberry was represented by an au
.die-nce which filled the opera house.'
The program began with a piano
solo, "Pilgrm's Chorus from Tann
hauser,'" by Wagner, feelingly ren
dered by Miss Mazie Dominick, to
whose skill in arYanging the program
much of the solemnity aad effective
ness of the session s due. "We shall'
Meet But We Shall Miss Him," was,
sung by the cnoir, and was followed
by the opening ceremonies from the
ritual, including the chorus, "Near
er, My God, To Thee."
"Auld Lang Syne," the opening
ode, was sung by the choir, and a!
beautiful prayer was offered by Dr.
J. W. Wolling, pastor of Central
"Face to Face" was sung by Dr.
Roy-Z. Thomas, of Newberry college.!
This appropriate selection was ren
dered by Dr. Thomas with feeling
and with rare musical skill. "Abide
With Me,' was sung by the choir,
and was followed by the readng of
"Thanatopsis,'" by Mr. E. H. Aull,
a devoted Elk and a life-long friend
of Mr. Brown. In the reading 'of
this exquisitely beautiful and sol
emn poem Mr. Aull gave evidence of
his deep feeling, and his expression
and his diction were in thorough ac
cord with the spirit of the'poem and
of the occasion.
"0! Divine Redeemer'' was ren
dered by Miss Pauline Gilder, whose
sweet and cultured voice has on
many occasons thrilHed audiences in
Newberry and elsewhere.
Hon. Cole. L. Blease delivered a
eulogy to - the departed dead. Mr.
Blease :began his address by refer-]
ring to the noble work done by the
Order of Elks and to the fact that<
throughout the length and breadth of
the country at ths hour the members
of the Order. were paying tribute to
the memory of their departed broth- .]
ers. "Only one of our members,"'he
said, "has failed to answer to his
name. Strong, robust and rugged,
he would have been the last man
whom you would have pointed out
as the first to be called from the
labors of earth. This Lodge of
Sorrow is called,''' he said, "to]
speak of him, to .,peak of 1
him as we knew him, to speak of him
as Newberry knew him-big-hearted,
pen-handed, always ready and will-<
ing to help those who needed it, and 1
as true and as upright and as honor- a
able in his dealings as it is possible I
for human to be.'' Mr. Blease spoke
of the enviable record of Mr. Brown
as alderman from his ward and as
mayor of the city of Newberry, say- t
ing that the city had never had a I
mayor who gave her a cleaner or at
nor moral or progressive adminis
ration than did Alex .Brown. I1
He was an Elk, and he was a true <
Elk. said Mr. Blease. When a broth- i
r wen to him he needed not to ex-1
peet and did not expect ever to seer
he back of his hand. And not only
hat, he said, but he was one to whom
1ll men could go. He did not prac
ice his charity at home only, nor in
the lodge only, "but to the outside
world Alex Brown was a household
word when it came to charity and to
open-heartedness.'' "Suffice it to r
say,'' he said, "that you knew and t
that I knew that in him we all had r
a friend. In his death not only did
the Elks lose a fied, but South(
Carolina lost a friend, and the coun
ty of Newber.ry and the city of. New
berry lost a citizen of whom they]
might well be proud, and I know
that if he had been spared to live
longer in this world he would have
gone to higher places of honor.''
"I heard one of the most dist in
guished ministers of South Carolina
in paying a last sad tribute to one of
the citizens of a ne.ighboring city, in
the beginning,of his address say thatI
death is 11o catastrophe, it is but the
opeul gtetway througi.lh which wev ali
must pass. to p)eace, to glory and to
happinecss, it is but the openi gateway
t roJugh whichi ur Savior passed: it
is but the open gatewvay through<
which we all must pass. anid I am onme
of thos who have not yet believed :
that there is such a thiag as death,
said Mr. Blease.
In concluding his remarks Mr.
Blease eloquently and beautifully
expressed his belief in the Christian
ereed of the immortality of the soul
and of a final meetingofthemembers
:f the -Order with their departed
brother in another aud a better
"Rock of Ages'" was beautifully
and effectively rendered by Miss
Genevie've Evans. The selection is
)ld 'out ever new, and the manner in
which it was rendered appealed to
the hearts of her hearers stiongly.
The ritual was followed in the
elosing ceremonies, and the audience
joined in the singing of the long
meter doxology and was -- dismissed
with the benediction by Dr. Wolling.
Miss Mazie Dominick, now of
Chester, where sh'e is teaching music,
but whose home is in Newberry, was
the piano accompanist throughout
the program. She is a musician of
rare skill and culture., and for her
efforts in arranging the program and
Cor her assistance in its renditon she
as the sincere thanks of the Order.
The members of the chorus were:
Uiss Pauline Gilder, Miss Genevieve
Evans, Mrs. Alice Robertson, Miss
&artha Johnstone. Miss Adeline
Johnstone, Mrs. Sam B. Jones, Mrs.
r. K. Johnstone, Dr. Roy Z. Thomas,
