W., drove over from Carson to visit and meet with Dayton Brothers, and perform the new work of initiating some new candidates. Among those present were Grand Master Workman, E. M. Reynolds; Chas. Stewart, M. W.; Frank Mur phy, P. M. W.; W. L. Taylor, Rec.; T. J. Heidenreich, Financier; W^ H. Cowan, Overseer; W. C. Noteware, Guide; C. M. Cavanaugh, I. W.; W. T. Wegar, O. "W.; W^ 0. Pierce, Or ganist; and Brothers PL Mara, J. S. Epsteine, J. PL Casey, F. Folsom, P. Gillhooley, P. Murray, P’rank Col lins, Atig. Berning, E. Aube, D. Circe, X. Spooner, Sam Calvin, M. G. Cecil, C. Pohl, C. C. Atherton, J. Hoops, Otto Shultz, all of Ormsby No. 4. P. G. M. W., C. A. LaGrave, W. J. Westerfield and E. D. Kelley were also over. Three candidates were initiated, they being Alden Belknap, who join ed Ormsby Lodge, and H. V. Clinton and C. C. Braun, who joined River Lodge. The work was neatly done by the Carson team and was much enjoyed by the members of River Lodge who were present from this place and Sutro in quite large num bers. After the secret work had been performed the screen work, which accompanies the initiation work, was given publicly in the Odeon Hall, where quite a large crowd was assembled to witness the performance. After a slight delay in regulating the light lor the stere opticon the machine worked smooth ly and life-sized pictures were thrown upon a large screen. They were very clear and distinct and fully illustrated the benefits to be derived by being a member ot the Order. The lecture, by W. L. Tay lor, was interesting and impressive. Alter all was over the visiting Brothers were invited to partake of a lunch at the Occidental Hotel, and as it was nearly midnight everybody fell upon the good things with an ap petite. Nearly all the visitors re turned to Carson the same night, and all declared they had a splendid time, while the members of River Lodge will anxiously await another visit. Wonderful tirowlh of Fraternity. The fraternal and benevolent Or ders in the United States number 7,350,000 members. At the last pres idential election about 14,000,000 votes were cast. So something like half, or more than half, of the adult males of the country are members of such Orders. There are nearly 1,000,000 Free Masons, more than 800,000 Odd Fellows, and more than 500,000 Knights of Pythias. In recent years the development of fraternal organ isations of this kind has been great ly stimulated by the extension of the sick benefits or weekly pay ments to poor members during sick ness and by the applications of all the improved principles of life insur ance. In other words, by the exten sion of the insurance features, these organizations have grown and spread rapidly. They have been well managed in that they have devoted themselves with much strictness to the purpose of their being. They have been kept out of politics, and have adhered closely to the business principle of enabling thrifty mem bers to be of financial benefit to one another. -♦—•— How to Prosper. Prosperity will only come with activity. The fellow who is waiting for something to turn up is usually not around to get it when it does turn up. It’s the fellow who turns things up who gets there. If your Lodge don’t get members it’s because you are waiting for “something to turn up.” Get out and hustle and you will get your share. ■extension Work. Special Deputy Farwell, who is j still at Wadsworth, although em barrassed by the temporary absence of the resident physician, and the in sufferable heat of the past week, has made a splendid showing in build ing up the Lodge at that town. 'When last heard from he had suc ceeded in securing six applications for membership, and the promise of a mimber of Brethren, who belonged to other Jurisdictions, to obtain clearance cards from their Lodges and join Upchurch Lodge. Several of the railroad employes who are now stationed at Wadsworth came there from Utah and California where they keep in good standing in the Order, but did not feel justified in seeking admission to the Lodge at "Wadsworth as it was apparent that the charter of the Lodge must be surrendered unless something was done to increase the membership, it having dwindled to five, and even some of these were absent, so that it was impossible to hold Lodge meet ings. Now that a start has been made we confidently hope to see Up church one of the most active, and strongest Lodges in the Jurisdiction. Railroad men generally take kindly to the A. O. U. W. and in the east there are Lodges composed exclu sively of men engaged in that bus iness. liimlt or AwcwmentH. The number of assessments in any Jurisdiction is limited to twelve in any one year. In case twelve assess ments are not sufficient to discharge the liabilities in any Jurisdiction in any one year, the A. 0. U. W. has the relief law as a current cost re serve element, a feature not possess ed by any other fraternal beneficial organization. It may not be out of place to call attention to the utility of this feature as a reserve element. No fraternal organization has as yet accumulated $2,000,000 as a reserve, yet the A. O. U. W. has collected and paid out through the relief law in the last seventeen years about $3,000, 000, and has an assessable reserve equal to $1,000,000 per annum. This feature alone * demonstrates the strength and perpetuity of the A. 0. U. W. system over other forms of fraternal beneficial organizations. The success of the classified plan will depend upon whether the mem bers and the public want protection at current cost. If they do, the classified plan as modified for the A. 0. U. W. supplies the only feasible way to furnish it and perpetuate the Order. If they prefer the level rate with a reserve, then they should go into associations that furnish that kind of protection. In the end you will pay as much in the one plan as in the other if the level rate is high enough to insure perpetuity. If you are opposed to a reserve the classified plan furnishes you protection at cur rent or actual cost without a re serve. If we have made the matter plain to you it is all we desire, you can then judge for yourself as to its merits. .• A Fraternal Model}’. The A. 0. U. W. is a fraternal Order in the true sense of the word, and its history constantly proves such to be the case. Our members should keep this truth impressed up on their minds and not regard our Order simply as a society where thev can get protection for others besides themselves, tor if the A. O. U. W. is to increase and prosper its fraternal features must be recog nized. Fraternity is the rock upon which our Order is built, and as long as the fraternal features arc kept in mind progress and prosperity are sure to be the result. When they are neglected adversity will come.— Minnesota Guide. Have YM a Wire and Children, a Dependent Mister, Father or Mother V Who, if you were taken away, would be left destitute? What pro vision have you made for them? Have you thought of the mortgage upon your home, of the distress to which your loved ones may be sub jected? Have you an income suffi cient to feed, clothe and educate them after your death? If not, what are they going to do? The A. O. U. W. was organized to help the men of moderate means protect their homes and save their loved ones from the poor house, from destitution and crime. We know you will protect them in life. Here is an opportunity to protect them after your death. You are a sensible man, a loving husband, father, son or brother. Come and help swell the noble army of home protectors to a million mem bers under the shield of the A. O. U. W. It is the oldest, the largest, the cheapest, the most fraternal and most popular of any society. It has a membership of over 365,000; it has paid to the widows, orphans, broth ers, mothers, etc., over $74,000,000. It is a home institution; a membership in it does not impoverish you or the state. Do you not think you better join? |y How many veteran Workmen are there who have sons grown up to manhood whom they have not asked to join the A. O. U. W. We are told that there are not a few of our older Brothers who belong to this class. The fact should be constantly borne in mind that under the classified assessment plan the A. O. U. W. is essentially and emphatically an Or der for young men. |y The old line insurance compa nies are reaping a harvest from the Alaska gold excitement, the edict having gone forth to cancel all pol icies of those leaving for the Klon dyke, and in computing the amount to be paid on the surrender of the policy the insurance company is sure to have the long end of the stick. Ey Because they do not happen to be Lodge officers or do not attend Lodge meetings does not release members from their obligations. In different or idolent Workmen are not only neglecting their self inter est, but are doing a positive injustice to their fellow members. Ey Every new member added to the roll means one count on the credit side in reducing the cost to the membership at large, so that any Workman who persuades a friend or neighbor to join the A. O. U. W. is helping himself as well as aiding thousands of fellow Workmen. gy K very time a man pays an as sessment he should feel an inch or two higher for he has another good deed to his credit. His money goes to relieve the sufferings of those who are left upon the charity of stran gers. iy The Odd Fellows’ Rruvew very justly observes: “Fraternal Orders soon lose confidence in a mem ber who is active while a candidate for public office, and forgets the Lodge immediately after election.” jy Increase the membership and reduce your assessment. No other method has been discovered that will doit. Hustle! iy Protection secures a home for the widow and support and educa tion for the children. iy William J. Bryan, the great Nebraskan, is a member of the Or der, and is proud of it. — Tiekled Nearly to Death You will be by taking a bath in Shaw’s Hot Springs, near Carson.

For a great many years doctors pro nounced it a local disease, and prescribed local remedies, and by constantly failing to cure with local treatment, pronounced it incurable. Science has proven catarrh to be a constitu tional disease and therefore requires constitu tional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure, man ufactured by F. J.
