Pocahontas and Red Men
The council of the evening was so
taken up with business of import
ance, ami the sampling of so many
good things, with which the com
mittee had fully provided to satisfy
the appetites of those present, that
there was very little time left in
which to travel the historical trails
of the tribe. We weie, therefore,
satisfied to only briefly study the
li af, ami drftw the comparison of
Thackeray's poem of 'Pocahontas.'
With the actual incident as recorded
in history, which bears out the opin

poets must have a very vivid imag
ination to produce from such a source
po beautiful a sentiment. The poem
is well known to all school children,
but the actual facts upon which it
i:-. founded, licit so generally known,
is an epoch in the early settlement
of the state of Virginia by English
colonists, who at this particular time

John Smtih, whose dealings with the
Indians was on a. commercial basis,
and who upon this occasion had
penetrated several miles further up
the Cbicahominy river than usual,
and was captured by a hand of In
dians under Chief Opechancanough,
a brother of l'owhattan, the great
chief of the province. The rank of
Captain Smith was- recognized, and
he was conducted through the many
Indian towns to a personal interview
v ith Chief Powhattan.
Captain Smith had no difficulty in
convincing him of the peaceful pur
pose of his mission, and after a few
days was escorted to the colony,
loaded down with provisions. During
Lis stay with the Indians, Pocahon

l'owhattan. was greatly interested in
the white captive, and several years
later was instrumental in saving his

To Preserve Its Flavor
You know when you drink good coffee. Perhaps
you can't tell why, but you know just the same.
And somehow the day doesn't start just right
when the coffee isn't right.
It's Mellow Before It's Roasted
M. J. B. is a coffee you will always like because
it is blended from selected green coffee that is
allowed to become mellow before it is roasted.
If green coffee is roasted before it becomes
mellow it is likely to be rank and bitter, and we
do not take any chances with M. J. B. coffee.
Always The Same In Any Climate
Packed by our new process in airtight tins, M.J. B.
coffee reaches you with its original flavor and
strength, and it always is the same no matter in
what climate you buy it.

The musical program was a treat,
anil a most intelligent audience wit
nessed the performance. Bro. Wilson
will leave the first part of the week
for Eastern Ari.i na, ivhere he is
booked at Tombstone lodge, Bisboe
and Douglas, after which he leaves
for Las Angeles, where he expects
t help celebrate the ninety-fifth an
niversary of the order with the
American lodge, one of the, largest in
that city.
Much credit is due the committee
on arrangements, who have worked
bard in order to make the enter
tainment a success specially Bro. X.
A. Morford. the secretary, who ha;;
j t'or so many long years performed
faithfully his duties to this lodge.
This should inspire, others to follow
bis example.
The first degree was exemplified
upon the waiting candidate at the
last session in a most Creditable
manner. Bro. F. H. Wilson took a
leading part in the degree team. The
second is scheduled for the next
meeting night.
l'hoenix lodge is very grateful
towards Bro. C. R. Kyther, pas',
grand, for the interest he has shown
in our lodge while sojourning among
us. Hro. Byther is a past district
deputy grandmaster of Roberts,
Idaho, and a true Oddfellow every
inch of it. "I,ot's have more of these

The lodge is the order's highway
to the hearts and confidence of the
membership, There is need for more
intelligent understanding of our so
ciety at large, for a better enmpro-
i.ension oi the wide plans, and its
substantial foundations, for a more
business-like administration of local
affairs, and for the enlargement of
the order's lines as a conserver

Fraternalism presents a bond of
.-.empathy and interest that is potent
and substantial. Its lines of com
munication are direct from the home
of tlie unfortunate to the treasurer's
office, and its material blessings are
available when other incomes are
cut off. C. R. B.
Modern Woodmen
The Modern Woodmen of America
held their regular meeting on last
Wednesday evening, and several new

on that night.
Next Wednesday evening, March

ment and initiation of candidates into
the Royal Neighbors. The Modern
Woodmen have turned over to the
sister lodge their club rooms for that
night. There will be 'a short business

Every member of No. 70S has one
