Inasmuch as there are three "fifth
days" in the current week, but few of
the bodies are scheduled for work of any
kind, an indication, it is said, that the
pressing work was generally completed
in the blue lodges before the 30th of September,
while the Royal Arch Chapters
are probably not In such shape as to
require "specials."
An incident of unusual interest in
Royal Arch circles will be the reception
of "The Traveling Triangle," with the
distinguished guests who come with it,
by Columbia Royal Arch Chapter No. 1,
Wednesday evening. The program for
the evening contemplates a dinner of
honor to the visitors at 6 o'clock. At
