Following the ceremonies Judge H. L. Myers responded to a request for an address. After reviewing the brief caret r aud wonderful growth of the Eagle fraternity, the speaker eulogiz 'd the teachings of the order and the principles upon which it is founded. A surprise was then sprung on the retiring president, George Witcomb. "We know you have nothing to be proud of,'' said Judge Myers addressing Mr. Witcomb, "and so we are going to give you something to be proud ot.'' | He then drew| from his pocket a handsome ring bearing the emblem of the fraternity and presented it to the retiring president with ^the compli ments of the lodge. Mr. Witcomb in response said that during his term as president of the lodge he had been called upon to do many difficult things, but to express his gratitude for this evidence of appreciation was the hardest of all. He, however, re covered from the surprise and in a few gracious words thanked his broth er Eagles and promised to wear the ring during his lifetime.
