of this City.
The annual celebration of Ascen-

, man(ierv v,, --. (r Knights Templar
was duly observed at the Presbyterian
church in this city on Thursday even

character indicating cltxrly the nature
of the celebration a large floral cross
being prominent, with various Mason

and over all, and immediately over
the cross, the inscription containing
the battle cry of the old soldier Tem
plars, defenders of the scepulchre of
Christ and protectors of the prilgrims.

A large and appreciative audience
greeted the appearanceof the Knights,

siir Knight Miller in making the
presentation, did so in an eloquent
address, replete with historical and
scriptural allusions, and paying a
high and well deserved tribute to the
absent Knight. Many of the audience
were impressed and delighted to know
from tins splendid address of Sir
Knight Miller that the Bible was and
sacred book with the Knights. In
accepting the beautiful offering of the
Comma ndery Sir Knight Alex. Koss
made a very feeling and touching ad
dress, and freely indorsed all that
had been said of the absent Knight, as
did the entire audience. The beauti-
