The Xlodern Woodmen of America
is to celebrate its 23th anniversary
Jan. 5, 1908, and in celebration of pas
sing the quarter century mark the
camps of the society, all over the
country, are planning to hold big class
initiations. Several thousand new mem
bers are expected to be added during
the month. Not all of the camps have
. selected Jan. 3 as the date of the ob
servation of the anniversary, but sev
eral camps have done so.
During 10 years of the society's life,
its affairs have been directed from
Rock Island, and a little of the history
of the fraternity is of interest.
Tho First Camp.
The first local camp of the Wood
men, Pioneer camp. No. 1, was organ
ized at Lyons, Clinton county, Iowa,
the evening of Jan. 5, 1!3, with 21
charter members, by- 3s . Root, the
founder. At the time of the organiza
tion of the first local camp, the first
provisional head camp was instituted,
the officers being selected from that
camp. '- -
The provisional head camp conduct
ed the affairs of the society until the
first regular head camp' meeting held
in June,-1883 at Fulton, 111. At that
head camp five local camps, were rep
resented by 15 delegates.

The society was granted a charter
under the state of Illinois, Xlay 5, 1884.
and has since operated under this
grant. The condition of this charter
made it necessary that the head offices
of the society be located iri Illinois

Word of the ideal condition passed
quickly yesterday and several hundred

Fulton, Iowa, the founders select
ed Fulton as the location of the head
offices. The offices remained there for
14 years, until they were removed to
Rock Island, in September. . The legal

of the head offices, are still fresh in

CHICAGO TO HOLD
&10T0R BOAT SHOW
Exhibitions of Various Types of Motor
Propelled Craft and Marine
In the exposition of motor propelled
craft and engines which will be con
ducted next week at the Coliseum,
Chicago, the public will be given an
opportunity to study a' phase of recrea
tion and sport which' has swept the
country in the past three years, and
which is apparently about to become
a popular fad when spring opens.
Motor boating appeals to thousands
who cannot enjoy the luxury of an au
tomobile because of the expense of
nuiintenance and ..furthermore is pop
ular with that large proportion of the
population which enjoys the sensation
of traveling rapidly over the surface
of lake, river or ocean.
Man iger Chester i. Campbell of Bos
ton, who is al the helm of the motor
boat shows, announces that the Chi
cago show, which Will open on ,ew
Yrar'a day and continue for. a week,
will display many typ:-s of boat which
never before have been exhibited.
Recent, research has evolved what
is known as the hydroeurve boats,
which displaces the water in a peculiar
way, having a 'tendency to lnfraa's?
rather than re'ard the speed of the
craft. One of this type will bo shown
at the Coliseum by the mvtntur, v.ao
is a Si. Louis man.
Everything in- the nature of a motor
propelled cra.ft wilf be sen from the
It: pound cane to mo'.c.r cruisers
weighing many Ions. In the engine
display will iie found groat variety,
from the 35 pound engine for installa
tion in the small, dingy to 7,'t horse
power engines, generally installed in
