first thing the officer brought, to light
when Mr. Eckstedt's clothes were
searched, was a snuff box. Another
pocket brought fourth a second snuff
box. Into another pocket went the
hand again, and a third snuff-box
bobbed up. The grin on the faces
of tho-ie present began to widen. A
fourth snuff-box was found; the grin
became more apparent. A fifth, and
the grin began to crackle. The sixth
snuff-box. pulled out of an inside vest
pocket, brought forth a decided snick
er from the audience. No. 7 was the
limit, almost, and the crowd let out a
whoop, which was emphasized by the
appearance of No. S. If there had
been another snuff-box a doctor would
have been necessary for the specta

members for the proposed two new
lodges. The King Phillip tribe has at

makes it the largest lodge in the state

warrant the institution of two more
lodges. There are between 12.000 ami

of members. During the last few
years the recruiting of King Philip has
