The reception to Delmar D. Dar
rah, most worshipful grand master of
Masons of Illinois, given last even
ing at Mawinlc temple by Rock la
land lodge No. 658, was a largely at
tended and brilliant affair. It was
in the nature of a joint reception to
the grand maatera of two states, Il
linois and Iowa, but the grand mas
ter of our sister state, Iouis Block,
ot Davenport, had been called to Des
Moines on Important business during
the day and was unable to be pres
ent. He was represented, however,
by B. M. Watts, a past master of
Trinity lodge f Davenport.
DARRAH MET AT THAI.
Grand Master Darrah arrived In
the early evening from his home In
Ploomlngton and was met at the
train by the reception committee and
escorted to the Rock Island club,
where covers for 30 were laid at an
Informal dinner party in his honor.
The dinner was a very happy affair,
aa a prelude to what waa to follow,
rnd at Its conclusion the party went
direct to the temple.
The attendance at the reception
was large, taxing the seating capac
ity to Its utmost and was representa
tive of Rock Island lodge and Trio
lodge of this city, as well as of the
lodges In Moline, Davenport, Milan,
Aledo, Colona and Atkinson, delega
tions from all these cities belg pres

toft, in the chair. Grand Master
Darrah was then received with a gen
uine warmth of welcome and given
the grand honors due hia exalted station.
Mr. Darrah delivered a fine ad
dress In which he expressed the
pleasure it gave htni to officially vis
It Rock Island and said he hoped in
the near future It would be made In
cumbent upon him to return here and
lay the corner stone of the new Ma-
sonc temple. He spoke at length
upon the high Ideals of Masonry, Its
ancient glory and the wide Influence
for good It exerts upon the world
today. The address waa notable for
its scholarly character and at the
close Mr. Darrah received long ap

Then followed a program arrang
