Delegates Told of >V<>n?li rful Increase
in Their Membership Purine: the
Greenville Piedmont, 22nd.
There is not a visiting Elk who
has the slightest question of the
warmth and sincerity of his wel- j
cone to the Pearl of the Piedmont. J
The "Bills" realize that they are
welcomed by the entire city and not
simply by their antlered brethren.
At the opening meeting of the
State association of Elks last night,
this spirit of welcome and hospitality
was fittingly expressed by Proctor
A. Bonham, the eloquent solicitor
of this circuit, and a feeling response
was made by District Deputy
Exalted Ruler F. H. Dominick:
TVi** mooHncr lnsf- nisrht was called
JL UV^ v w
to order by President L. H. Cary, to
whose efforts the creation of the
State association is due. The opening
prayer was made by the beloved
chaplain, Rev. K. G. Finlay, rector
of Trinity church in Columbia.
The call of the roll of officers
showed only one absence, and tne
call of the roll of lodges showed a
good attendance, as follows.

Loud applause greeted this invitation.
Reports From Lodges.
J. L. Irwin, the Exalted Ruler of
Columbia lodge, made a very glowing
report of the prospects of that
lodge. He said it had taken in nine
X.y uew mcmwrrs m cuc aaat, ivui
months and that nearly all of those
were substantial business men. The:
Columbia lodge now has an option
on a splendid site for a home and
intends to build one of the . best
homes in the South.
X A. J. Ham, of Florence, humor-1
ously remarked that they had a
small lodge which had been improved
by being made still smaller, as it j
"had rotten rid of snmp members who
displayed a factional spirit. He
said the Florence lodge was peculiar j
in that it was composed of a floating j
population, mainly drummers, rail- ,
road men and some citizens of Flor- j
ence. "His lodge had recently bought
a site and was making plans to j
erect a home.
T. S. Mauldin, reporting for j
Greenvillfe, called attention to the
new home the lodge now occupied in
which the meeting was held, which
it has acquired since the organiza-:
tion o? tjhe Sjtat<e association. A j
year ago the Greenville lodge had
only one hundred members, but since
then it has taken in a number of the
best people of the city, and will
shortly'have at least 250 members.
On behalf of the lodge, he heartily
indorsed all the words of welcome
that had been spoken by Mr. Bonham.
E. S. Blease was proud to report
that the real Elk spirit was growing;
very strong in Newberry. Though ,
the Newberry lodge was a small !
only entirl d io .--oven dele^at'.-s, ;
he called attention to the tact. Unit
everyone of the s- veil was present!
and that most of them were men j
who had been very prominent in i
the affairs of the Klks in this State, j
He enjoyed the social aspects of:
Elkdom, but warned the brethren j
that a lodge which unduly emgha- |
sized its social features but neglect|
ed the higher and broader aims of
i Elkdom would soor. lose ground.
John Cart of Orangeburg, said his;
"tiad only :.20 members, but
each member was most emphatically
an Elk and tha: the lodge feature
was especially emphasized in the
city on the Edisto.
Geo. D. Levy, oi: Sumter, paid a
beautiful tribute to the work of Andrew
A. Manning who was primarily
responsible for making out of a
weak lodge in the game-cock city,
the biggest and strongest lodge in
the State. He said Sumter lodge>
will be in new quarters by September
15th. Quarters 'vhich will be a
credit to the Sumter lodge and the
order as a whole. He praised the
work of L. H. Cary, of Greenville,
which made the State association
possible and told of the good that
the organization of a State association
had already done and would do.
The State association was formed
last' year a*d last year in the National
convention on in Portland was
the first time that South Carolina
really appeared upon the map of
Elkdom. Because of the amalgamat|
ing spirit fostered by the State or
ganization the Palmetto delegates
to Portland were welded together
as a State organization tht made it
Rev. N. A. Hemrick, a Baptist
minister of Newberry, was called
on, and told of the reasons why he
was glad he was an Elk, though his
joining had been criticised at the
time. He knew that the principles

to them would make him a better citi

Entomologist Clears Away All Doubt
and Fear.?Only a Pea Pest.
Bennettsville, May 22.?Rumors
were sent out from B-ennetsville the
last few days to the effect that cotton
boll weevil had appeared in this
county. The news, of course, spread
verv ranidly and caused more or less
anxiety. It has been found that the
weevil that caused this report was
nothing but the cow pea pod weevil.
In order to be sure though. Prof.
Thomas Field, entomologist of South ,
Carolina -experiment station, was
| called in to give an expert opinion,
and after examination promptly ,
classed the weevil as "Chalcodermis
aens.sa." or "cow pea pod weevil."

of this county, went to the section ;
where th.-< weevil had appeared ai;d
