to be prevalent among some-of our grand

"A conservative value of these relics
was stated to be between JL500.000 and
22.000,000, and it was stated that an offer
approximating those amounts had been
received from .one of our large Masonic
jurisdictions if a sale would be made.
"A personal and Masonic pride forbade
the parting with these mementoes, and
the belief that the great Masonic fra
ternlty of this country would desire these
treasures, dear to the hearts 01 us ail.

fire and theft, has Induced our brethren
of the lodge in which our illustrious
brother held his membership to appeal to
the craft at large for subscriptions to
build this memorial. Considerable prog
ress has already been made, and with the
added Impetus of the official partidpa'
tlon of grand chapters and grand com'
manderles the success of tha undertaking
seems to be assured.

MISS DOBOTHY HERON.
"The Fire Regained." the Grecian pageant-drama, opened at Sixteenth and
V streets last Saturday and was a great success In every way, and It was im
mediately seen by the readers of The Herald that the "beauty contest" for the
selection of the nine most attractive young ladles was well worth the keen
competition that has been started In these columns. Out of the 1.500 partici
pants about 800 are young ladles, fully half the number comely enough to be
entered as representative Washingtonians. Save The Heralds and send your
nine selections to The Herald Contest Editor not later than Saturday morning.
