Tho Elk Lodge Celebrates Its First Anni
versary at the Sail Pedro
And IEoj-Hlly Untertnlns a Large Party
or the Fair Sex, Visiting Members
Tho Elk Lodge of tho Knights of Pythias
celebrated Its first anniversary at the San
Pedro springs, and right royally was It dono.
Invitations woro sunt to tho select frlonds of
tho members, and thoy wcro liberally accepted.
At Bo'clook tho membors und their guests be
gan to nrrlve, and thoy were cordially rocoived
by the Ileecptlon committee. Members of tho
Elk received from thorn their golden badge'
und visiting Knights wero by them adorned
with red badges. The guests received n whltu
badgo nnd refreshment ticket In exchange for
their Invitation cards. All tho budges wero
appropriately Inscribed with tho arms of tho
Knights of Pythlssund with u designation of
the character in which the ltdy or gentleman
participated, such as "guest," etc. About 0
o clock the bund played and tho party us
setnbled In tho dunco hall. Dancing
then commenced and was continued.
with short Intermission, until curly
this morning with a heartinet-s chaructorlstlo
of tho Soitthorn people. Tho dunco hall was
prettily docorated, and tho ladles wero In most
cases elegantly attired. The scene as presented
during tho dancing was such as has been rarely
equalled, If It has over boon excelled, by uny
of tho many gatherings at the Springs.
About 11 o'clock order was called, and
Colonel C. II. Clifford, Pust Chancellor, ad-
dresiod tho members and guests In the dance
hall, and said that Elk Lodgo, No. 3.", met to
colobrato Its lint anniversary. Tho orcinlzn.
non nuu nuu n s ion inc. ooiuir louniieti on
February ID, lbOt, lit Washington elty.by a gen
tleman named Itathbone, but in 1882 It had so
lncremcd thut It numbered ubout 12,000 mem
bers In irood stnudhur. It wus a hard mutter
to say what good It had done. It wan founded
on mo general principal which actuated tuo
Ku'gnuor oiu. wuuii mo people woro op
ureasud Knlirht errantry nr so to nut down
oppression und to right tho wrong of tho op-
presseu. iu tnu primitive state inu miigius
did good service, but they In their turn became
oppressors, una somcoouy nuu to suppress
them. Then cutno secret associations. Indi
viduals wero powerless, but by combination
tliev becamo n nower. From the frau-llo slnirtn
stick of tho ltoinnns they becatuo u biindio of
sticks, strong ana unurokcu. incy couiu not
meet oponiy, so tney nice secretly in sucn
places as tho catacombs of Home, and as a re
sult we have froo government, fruo icltglon
and liberty. Wo do not say tho Knights of
Pythias has dono or will do this, but wo say It
unites tbo members In a common band of
brotherhood and eases tho burdens of life. If
a member is sick wo nurse him, if ho dies, we
bury him, If he leaves a widow wo seek to help
uer; 11 nis ciiuurou uro lett. we try to cuucuio
them. Men may say 11 these things uro so good
as you represent why this secrecy unit

good because by Itsprecopts it teaches us to
do good, but It does not put forward uny force
and say you shall do It, Members must do
their duty, for wo huvn thut power In the or
ganization to enforce It which tho church
" lodgo " bus not. Wo uro young, nnd, dis
carding tho objectionable features of other
organizations, we seek only to dtsseuiluato
such principles as can bo well carried out."
'1 ho Past Chnncellor concluded by observing
that ho could talk for some tlmo, but It
would do no good, aud only detain tho visitors
fiom other pleasures. Colonel Clifford's ad
dress was well delivered, and was listened to
with marked attontlon. Ho carefully avoided
the error many orators fall Into of talking too
much Ht gatherings of a social ehuructcr
The order for marching to the refreshment
t.tble wus then given, nnd a procession of
members nnd guests wns formed by Mr. J. S.
Itamsey, Master or Ceremonies, headed by tho
Chancellor, Mr. T. W. Mullaly, aud proceeded
to tho supper tables, whom leo cream, cake
and coffee wero liberally served. In response
to tlio loud calls for Mr. Mullaly ho tuountod
his chair at tho head of tho tablo und toasted
tho Elk Lodge. Tho party thou returned to
the danco hull and continued thu festive dance.

success, and upon tho progress which It has

Not many years from now one of the great
est and most profitable'sourcet of income In
the State may be the' sugar Industry. There
, are now, within loo miles of Galveston, some
6o or 70 sugar plantations, containing about
3,000 acres of land. The owners admit the
I profits derived from them have been enor
mous, and have formed an alliance with
Eajturn capitalists to stimulate theinduitry
by establishing a large refinery at Galveston.

" You have a bttltr idea of the Cherokee

Paschal, " but the number is not so gteat as
100, it is only 17."
"The Cherokees are as highly civilised at

their farms and churches and school houses."
"They're ahead ol the States people as to

rupted " New York Slate last year spent

Cherokees spent $3.50."
" It's funny what ideas some people have
