Md.. July 9. 1W3. flt. Georsp'f never seemed more charming than now. St. Georgia Island Is nlnetv tive miles from Washington on the Poto mac. and ten miles from the bay. It Is three miles long and three-quarters of a mile at Its widest part, with the Potomac on one side and the St. George s and St. Mary's rivers on the other. It has a popu lation of W*) people, who are engaged in oystering and fishing, and its people are courteous, polite and obliging. There are four churches?a Catholic. Methodist, l-!>is copal and Baptist-besides a colored church; two schools, and. altogether, the Inhabitants are exceedingly intelligent. There are now and then a few mosquitoes, but the wind sweeping from either side disperses them. The waters abound In sheephead. taylor, spot and trout, oysters and crabs. Trout and spots are now lieing caught on hook and line. One of our company last Tues day caught lOO spots in a very short time. Sailing In stanch and clean boats, manned by exi?ert sailors, crabbing, fishing and dancing are many "of the pastimes which tend to make this place popular and ex tremely delightful. I took a ."nil over to Plney Point on 1 ues day last The wind was strong and the waves rolled high. The trip was a delight fully pleasant one. A feeling of sadness, however, came over me on arriving, to see that the finger of decay had fastened it self on the dear old place, once a resort for many of Washington's prominent peo ple. The place was not opened last year and will not be this year. The buildings are decaying and tumbling down, and the place fast becoming a thing of the past. It is a pity, for barring the mosquito It has advantages possessed by no other place on the Potomac. It Is now deserted, not a living soul being their to tell of its glories. The hotel here, so admirably managed by the Adams brothers, has just opened for its twenty-fifth season. Washington guests on the register include Edward Landvolgt, Samuel A. initnam. E. B.

The Imperial Council of the Mystic Shrine will meet again In the east next year. The gathering Is fixed for Atlantic City on ili<? second Wednesday In July, WOt. The following are the new offlcors of the imp-rial Council chosen at Sara toga Springs ihis week: Imperial potentate, George li. l.reen of Hella Temple, Dallas. Tex.; depui> imperial potentate.

Congress fpring Park was a scene of beauty at S ? atoga Springs on the occa sion of the i.nnual competitive drill be tween the A' bic patrols of the Nobles of the Mystic Purine. The drill took place on the lawn In front of the pavilion and around which were grouped on the banks, on the lawns, in the pavilion, and, in fact, Sol Herzog, Worshipful Master Osiris Lodge, F. A. A. M. at every vantage point, the admirers of the gaily-dressed patrols. The moving fans and th" bright colored fezzes lent a charm of color "and of movement to the scene, while the bursts of applause and the many cheers bespoke the interest and pleas ure of the Sliriners and their fair friends. The first j>atrol to hurry onto the ground were the crack team from Los Angeles, from A1 Malaikah. They had perhaps more admirers than any other contestant, their record of the past and their exhibition during this week appearing in their favor. The intricacy of their formations and per fection of their movements showed the re suit of long practice. They finished amid the cheers of their friends. Syrian of Cin cinnati were the next contestants and their exhibition was equally well received. Then followed successively Moolah of St. Louis. Ararat of Kansas City. Zurah of Minne apolis and Aladdin of Columbus, all of whom demonstrated skill in fancy drilling. The officers of Naomi Rebekah Lodge, No. 1. I. O. O.

Akin of Omaha, imperial potentate of the Im perial Council. The Troy City Band, which had been engaged to render its services throughout the convention, headed a patrol under command of Captain Thomas C. His lop. which met the various temples arriving at the I>eiaware and Hudson station. W^jon the "Imperial Special" drew into the sta tion the Oriental patrol, and the patrols of AI Malaikah Temple of Los Angeles. Cal.; Ararat Temple of Kansas City, Mo., and Moolah Temple of St. Louis.

The Daily Saratogian save the following enthusiastic welcome to the fes wearers of North America: "Es Salamu Aleikum! Thus did Saratoga welcome Mystic Shrln ers from all over the country, in words of their own choosing. From dawn or soon thereafter throughout the day the Arab patrols of Troy and Saratoga were con tinually on the march to and from the railway stations, where the various dele gations to the twenty-ninth Imperial Coun- | cdl were constantly arriving. They were welcomed with open arms and escorted to their headquarters at the hotels through out the village. ? ? ? From the green oases that strew the far western sands, from dunes that dot the eastern shores, from the middle places beside the great rivers and from the sun-kissed palm groves of the south they have come. Every ship of the desert has been pressed into service, and the kneeling caravans at our gates are invitation to the good people of our town to up and bid the pilgrims welcome. All that could be done has been done against the Sbriners' coming. By private arrangement with the weather man a sam ple of the genuine Saratoga brand has been tapped. There will be decorations both upon the main and residence streets, and In displaying the village's welcome private houses may well take hearty part. But the flaunting* of color and flashings of light are but the outward seeming that betokens a welcome that neither words nor decorations may adequately express. Shrin ers are ever welcome in Saratoga. May the breezes that fan their brows be freighted with the scents of Araby. and the waters and other things they drink be ever cool and refreshing."

Henry Ridgely Evans, thirty-second de gree. senior warden of Mithras Lodge of Perfection. A. A. S. R.. has an Interesting monograph on "Cagliostro?a Study in Charlatanism." in the July Issue of the Mor.ist. Mr. Evans Is himself much skilled in necromancy. His article Is a careful re v'ew of the life of this brilliant adventurer. He does not spare Cagliostro's character, but he pays due credit to his remarkable genius. The paper is embellished with sev eral rare portraits of Count Cagliostro. showing him to be a portly, florid man of decidedly distinguished appearance. The monograph also reproduces a rare old print, a copy of which may be seen in the Scottish Rite Library here, which depicts ' the unmasking of the famous Impostor at the Lodge of Antiquity, published Novem ber 21, 17N6. at London. It was engraved by an eye-witness of the scene. In com pany with some French gentlemen, Caglios tro visited the lodge one evening. At the banquet which followed the working of the degree a certain member named Mash, an optician, was called upon to sing. Instead of a post-prandlal ditty, he gave a clever imitation of a quack doctor selling nos trums and dilating bombastically upon the virtues of his elixirs, balsams and cordials. Cagliostro was not slow In perceiving that he was the target for Mash's shafts of ridi cule. His "front of brass." as Carlyle has it. was beaten In, his pachyderm was pene trated by the barbed arrows of the ln gen'ous optician's wit. He left the hall In high dudgeon, followed by the Jeers of the assembled Masons. "Cagliostro pften boasted of his great age. He claimed to have been one of the guests at the marriage feast at Cana and to have witnessed the crucifixion. From England he went to The Hague, where he Inaugurated a lodge of female Masons, over which his wife presided as grand mis tress. Throughout Holland he was received by the lodges with Masonic honors?beneath 'arches of steel.' * * * In the year 1783 he founded at Lyons the Lodge of Triumph ant Wisdom, and made many converts to his mystical doctrines. The fame of his Egyptian Masonry reached Paris and created quite a stir among the lodges. The chiefs of a Masonic convocation assembled in Paris wrote to him for information con cerning his new rite. He scornfully refused to have anything to do with them unless they burned all their Madonic books and Implements as useless trash and acknowl edged their futility, claiming that his Egyp tian rite was the only true Freemasonry and worthy of cultivation among men of learning. Ilis next move was to the French capital. His greatest triumph was achieved at Paris. A gay and frivolous aristocracy, mad after new sensations, welcomed the magician with open arms. Cagliostro's Egyptian rite of Masonry was well received ' In Paris, especially the lodge for ladles, which was presided over by the beautiful Lorenza. his wife. Cagliostro lived like a lord, thanks to the revenues obtained from the initiates into his Masonic rite, and the money which he unquestionably received from his dupe, the Cardinal de Rohan. Cag liostro was at the height of his fame, when suddenly he was arrested and thrown Into I the Bastille. He was charged with complic | lty In the affair of the diamond necklace. ' He was in that famous prison more than a | year. To escape the harpies and a debtor's prison Cagliostro fled to his old hunting ground, the continent. But the game was played out. The police had by this time he come fully cognizant of his impostures. He was forbidden to practice his peculiar system of medicine and Masonry In Aus tria. Germany. Russia and Spain. He went to Rome. Freemasonry was a capital of fense In the dominions of the pope. "Cagliostro attempted to found one of his Egyptian lodges, but met with no suc cess. His exchequer became depleted. He appealed to the national assembly of France to revoke the order of banishment, on the ground of 'his services to the liberty of FYance." Suddenly on the evening of December 27. 178S), he and his wife were arrested and incarcerated In the fortress of San Angek>. He was tried by the holy in quisition. Cagliostro's line of defense was that 'he had labored throughout to leid back Freemasons through the Egyptian rit ual to Catholic orthodoxy." He appeared at first to be- contrite. But it availed' him nothing. Finding his appeals for mercy useless, he adopted another tack, and told impossible stories of his adventures. He harangued the holy fathers for hours, de spite their threats and protests. Finally, he was condemned to death as a heretic, sorcerer and Freemason, but Pope Pius VI. on tli* 21st of March. 1T91. commuted the sentence to life Imprisonment, and he was conducted to the castle of San Leon, Ur bino. Here in a subterranean dungeon be fretted his life away In silence and dark ness until 1795, when he died. No one knows where the arch-enchanter is buried." Supreme Commander D. P. Markey of the Knights -of the Maccabees of the World ?:iys that while nothing Is settled yet about the removal of the Maccabee head quarters from Port Huron to Detroit the matter had been given earnest discussion by the Maccabee representatives from other states, some of whom considered Port Hu ron rather unfriendly to the order, and he Intimates th*t the proposal to build a tem ple there for the great camp would not tend to make the outside representatives fed any better toward Port Huron.

From the Amertrmn Iirjjntocr The electric resistance furnace made by Heraeus of Hanan. Germany, depends upon the incandescence of ? spiral of line plati num wire. In an improved and cheapened farm of the furnace the wire has a thick ness of only 1-3300th -pf an inch, and the glass tube around which the spiral la wound can be heated to 1.700 degrees centi grade, this being as great a temperature as any tubes now produced can rtand. Such furnaces are found useful for determining melting points, organic chemical analysis and other purposes. In aeganic analysis the spiral of wire encircling the glass com bustion tube is cut up into several sections, each with Its own current connections, no that successive portions of the tube can be heated as -desired. Beat loss is lessened, with corresponding increase In the chem ist's comfort.

Oatmeal Water is What the Steamship Stoker Drinks. From the Philadelphia Inquirer. . The most aggravating thing on the face J of the earth la to be advised to keep cool when to keep cool seem* to be out of the question and you are sweltering. We haven't the slightest doubt that crimes have : been committed before now under such great provocation?not the slightest doubt. If crimes produced by anger are ever justi fiable they are certainly of the character invoked by the customary expression in hot weather, "Oh. Just keep cool!" When a man, half dead, has been told this for the fortieth time patience ceases to be a virtue Bnd he is apt to throw things?If he has enough energy left. There are just a few common rules, how ever, that a person can observe that will at least bring him, if not absolute comfort, re lief from something worse. We won't call them rules. With the thermometer soaring around the 100 mark no one wishes to bur den himself even with rules. L?et us call them suggestions. We are talking now to the city-bound man?the man who cannot go to where the breeses blow, but must plod through his daily toil In spite of thermom eters and flery suns and fight against old General Humidity, who is the foe of all suf fering mankind. The other fellow can look after himself. Don't be tempted to pour alcoholic liquid of any kind down your throat. That is the first and best suggestion. It heats and but adds fuel to the (lames already burning al- ? together too fiercely. Nor is it wise to eat heavy meals of meats and hot soups. A man who begins the day with fruit, rolls or toast and a broiled tomato, for instance, is much better off than the one who calls for steaks and greasy potatoes. The roasts which many business men snatch in the middle of the day are not necessary in this burning weather. If you must have meat try a small slice of cold mutton or beef and a salad of some green stuff. If the luncheon is confined to the salad you will probably feel better and keep cooler. Iced tea moderately taken is not bad, but don't make the mistake of drink ing even Iced tea or lemonade in great quantities. Great draughts of ice water do more harm than good. Down in the holds of the ocean monsters, where scores of men are shoveling coal into the mouths of the Immense furnaces, it Is far hotter weather than a landsman can find even under the direct rays of the sun. It is so hot down there that the stokers go naked to the waist. Their thirst is intense, and they alleviate It In a simple way. They do not seize upon buckets of ice water and drink for momentary relief. They know better than that. They have had experience with heat, and they adopt the very best method when they take a mouthful of cool water upon which is floating a little oat meal. Th?y have found that this drink is just what they need. If you should adopt that system in your office you would -find your thirst much bet ter allayed than should you drink quarts of ice water and make frequent trips to the bar or the soda fountain. Take a leaf from the experience of the stoker. That is all that we propose to say in this little ser mon, which is designedly made short. Eat only light food, drink moderately of plain beverages, never touching those of the al coholic variety, and you will be in a condition to ward off the heat when the immoderate eater and drinker will succumb. And. above all, try to keep your mind from the heat. That is more difficult to do, but if you are not eternally talking about It and If you don't permit yourself to worry over the up ward tendency of the mercury in the tube you will be surprised to find how very much easier it is to deal with trying conditions. Educated. Women as Mothers. From Vogue. . Mothers whose children despise them are themselves to blame for the sentiment; for those women are the old-style servant wives and mothers. The type is today, of, course, largely in the majority owing main ly to the enormous hordes of European peasants that this country harbors, even 1* higher caste foreign families this degrading view of the place of mother obtains. Hap- . pity, the hundreds of young women gradu ating annually from colleges are not only so many hundred brands snatched from the ' burning of Ignorant and suffering mother hood, but the Influence ot such consider able number of self-poised mentally awak ened women is simply incalculable; It will ' eventually lessen even the inert mass of peasant motherhood, to the joy of. the wo- j men themselves and the benefit of their off-. spring. >' - - viiu-a . ??.: ?* _ . -- . -:i2. 4' " " * ?*.'71 THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY A special reduction will bo made on all opera tion* and treatment! for correcting Imperfect fea tures, removing blemishes and curing all skin or ac*lp disease* during July and August.
