A JEWEL PRESENTED.

f ittingly Honored.
At last evening's meeting of Kock
Island lodge No. I. O. O. F., S.
B. Stoddard. Sr.. was presented with
the Honorable Veteran's Jewel of the
order. The presentation was made by
Justice David Hawes, a 40-year vet
eran of the order, and was a com
plete surprise to Mr. Stoddard, but.
quickly recovering himself, he in a
few appropriate remarks thanked his
friends for the honor conferred. To
acquire j,this jewel one must have
been a member of the order for 50
years, and Mr. Stoddard enjoys not
onlv that distinction, but of "beinp
the first in the state to acquire such
The jewel is made of 14-k gold
throughout, except the laural wreath
which is of lrt-k green gold. The
globe is 1J inches in diameter, which
surrounded by the wreath makes an
extreme width of 11 inches. The
bar on the top of the piece is 1J
inches wide, making the total length
of the badge 2j inches. The globe is
bodily convesed with a flat bacn and
the front is highly polished, and
on it are the lines of latitude and
jonguuue. i ne continents are
plainly inserted on the plole and
made of differently tinted cold, dull
or frosted. The wreath, as stated, is
of preen gold and comiosed of laurel
leaves, in relief, connected at the
bottom by three carved links. At
the top of the globe, supported by
two ornamental scrolls, are the
urcs "50." set solid in diamonds.
Across the globe, diagonally on a
raised ribbon scrool, is the word
"Universal," in gold letters. On the
bar, from which the globe or pend
ant hangs, are the letters "I. O. O.
F." On the whole the jewel is beau
tiful in the extreme.
Mr. Stoddard was initiated a mem
ber of the order at Evansville, Ind.,
March 17. 142. Since June, 1851,
he has been identified with Bock Isl
and. No. 18. It will be seen that by
the above Mr. Stoddard has been an
Odd Fellow for 52 years, and of the
I.ock Island lodge for 43 years.

Mauck pitched an elegant game
yesterday at Lincoln, and the
score should have have been
7 to 6. but ill-luck attended
the Twins in the eighth in

three runs on a base on balls and
four singles, after two men were out.
The boys go to St. Joe today with
the avowed intention of taking at
least two out of three. Their w in
ning streak seems to have deviated,
but they will catch up to it soon.
They still lead, too, by 11 points,
and that is something great in this
league. The score:
