cannot be excelled by anything in
the show line now on the road. This
company's receipts average about $5,000
per day, which leaves quite a margin for
profits after deducting their expenses,
which are about $1,500 per day-which -$500 of
is for advertising alone.
Sells Bro's showed to 8,000 persons
at each entertainment in Covington, and
6,000 at each in Paris. Their advertising
bill alone amounting to $500 per day
brings them a profit of at least $3,000 per
day. Had they not advertised a cents'
worth in the State, of course they would
have had no patronage. There are a
few men-too ignorant to 3 ield to the fact
that advertising pays. Of course the
Sells Bro's could live without advertising,
but would baye to saw wood or hoe
pom and not depend on public patron

SAMSON LODGE, 23
The 63d anniversary of Odd Fellowship
was celebrated by Bourbon Lodge, No.
23, Wednesday night at their hall in this
city, at which a fair crowd listened to the
exercises of the evening. An impromtu
choir composed of a score of young ladies
and gentlemen of the city, kindly favored
the exercises, with sweet music. Emmet
Dickson, a talented member of the order,
and a Bhining light of the Paris , bar, delivered
.the welcome address in a few
well-timed remarks appropriate for the
occasion, after which'Prof. H. R. Blais-dell,
Principal of. the City School, read
the following condensed
HISTORY OF BOURBON LODGE:
Forty years ago in the little town of
Lancaster a young man was conversing
with an Odd Fellow. His soul was filled
with admiration of the Order because of
the working of it he had witnessed in
Louisville. He expressed an ardent desire
to become one. "Why do you not?"
'Because there is no - lodge .accessible."
"Then, get up one." "There are no. Odd
Fellows here." "Yes. there are two,"
naming the individuals, who chanced to
be among the best friends ot the young
man. At that time there were only , six
lodges in the State. As a result of the
above conversation, Franklin Lodge, No.
7 was organized. Shortly after, by the
influence of that same individual, a lodg
was organized at Danville. Removing to
Paris not long afterwards; animated by a
burning zeal to see the good work go on,
it was not long before a beginning Was
Nov. 29, 1845, was the day which saw
Bourbon Lodge, No. '23; "I. O. O. F.
brought into existence, a healthy, useful
life, which has progressed with increasing
vigor to the present moment, and which
bids fair to continue an enduring monument
of the benevolence of man until
Time shall be no more. P. G. John V.
Lovely, as the leading spirit, together with
George -Stoll, Joseph B. Cooper, R. P.
Timberlake and W. S. Simpson assembled
on that day under a dispensation granted
by John B. Hinkle, their Grand Master
of Ky. The first officers of the vomit;
Lodge- wore J. V. Lovely, N. G., L. B.
Allison, V. G., J. T. Davis, Treas., and
W. W. FothergillSec'y.
They first met in a room over the present
store of Charles Stevens, opposite the
Court House, After holding their meetings
there for afew months, they removed
to the upper story of a new building
erected by Herr & Thompson, fronting
Main street, now Speaks' stable, Energetic
and managing, the lodge felt the
need of larger and more convenient quarters,
and some funds having accumulated
they put up the building on the corner of
Pleasant and Uross streets, tne money
they invested to be taken out in rent,
Here they spent several years, until waxing
strong and well to do, they determined,
like thrifty housekeepers, to have
a home of their own, and measures were
incepted which led to the acquirement of
the handsome property in which we now
are assembled. They moved here about
1855, and began a career of greatly increased
prosperity. Other lodges may
have more costly apartments, but none
are more convenient. Here has been the
center, from which for more than a quarter
of a century have radiated thoughts,
words and deeds of kindness. Here hp"Q . s
originated plans for soothing lue pains of
the sick brother, for Supplying the wants
of the widow and orphan, and the destitute
The beginnings were small; the receipts
during the first year were a little over
$300; of the first decade were about $7,700;
of the second, about $8,336; of the third
about $9,800, making a grand tptal of re?
ceipts up to Jan. 1st, 1882 of the hand:?
some sum of $30,459.64.
Our widow and orphans' fund is more
tnjn $iUuu, 01 tins only tne income can
be spent. $2,000 ha's been expended in
the relief of widowed families, more than
$3,000 in general charities, and $4,500 for
sick and funeral benefits.
The Lodge has on hand in real -estate,
money and securities upwards of $16,000.
Thus it will be seen that the Fraternity
have a solid basis upon which to build
present and future benefit for their
basis, too, accumulated by their
own thrift and economy and all the while
liberally satisfying every supplicating
need, and fulfilling the engagements
made with their own members. The

away from his own people found at the
hands of the brethren, kind and. careful
