For a short time only the charter of
Douglas-Treadwell Lodge, No. 755,
Loyal Order of Moose, is open and the
iniation will be only $5, covering all
cost of joining. Since the purchase
by the Supreme Lodge of over 1,000
acres, comprising several farms ad
, jacent to Aurora, I1L, for the Inter
I national Home and University, the
membership of the 1,500 Moose lodges
has increased by leaps and bounds
because so many were quick to see
the advantages of belonging to an
Order that insures their crippled and
aged members, their widows and or
phans against want, cures the con
| sumptive and gives the children of
Moose an education unequaled by any
university, absolutely tree, besides
I paying a high sick benefit to its mem
bers in good standing. The fee will
be raised to $10 in a short time with
