For Ulrunlul Meetings, One of the important matters to come before to-day's session of tli'J Council will be the recommendation made by Grand Regent Mlnetree Kolke? In his annu?l report that the Grand Council hereafter hold bljnnial instead of en- j r.ual meetings. Mr. Koikes bases his recommendation on the ground of economy. He arguea that the money used t> pay the mileage and per diem of repreeentail ves from local lodges could be used to better advantage in Increas? ing tho scope of the orders work, ad? vertising It and adding to its member? ship, lie does, not think that the work would suffer at all if Ihe meetings were held every two years. Instead of an Iiuali}', an at present. A number of the representatlv.>s do not agree with Mr. Koikes on this point, and there is every prospect of a live debate when the question la placed b"for- the council. The annual reports of officers have been placed In the hands of committees and will be Pre i-ented formally at this ?-essloi.

Those who have seen tho reposeful, assured. urslnely de? liberative, methods of this remarkable young animal Impersonator predict a triumphant career for him in his chosen profession. In writing of tho first performance of the Klrmess, the fingers of the dazed reviewer, in endeavoring to praise William Millor for his admir? able work in "The Biding Lesson" with Miss Ella Blnford. stumbled upon the keys which had grown accustomed to spelling D-i-c-k-s-o-n when a man ; was to be particularly commended, j In this Klrmess of ours "there's glory enough for us all," and It was Mr. Mil- , ler who forsook his steering wheel for' an imaginary saddle nnd rode with so i much fire snu determination that he ! is said to have been a bit stiff nnd sore the next morning.
