Of a kindly, affectionate disposition, ever ready to aid an unfortunate brother, either in or out of the lodge room. it was but natural that he was not for gotten when he was stricken and re moved from the busy scenes of life. Intellectual, studlus, a man of con victions, but tolerant with all with Whom he differed, he made friends everywhere. Always hopeful and op timistic, he believed he would some day regain his lost sight, and his one prayer ln his latter days was for the restoration of health and vision that he might practically demonstrate how truly ha appreciated the favors shown him. * The esteem in which Neighbor Slater was held by all was attested by the large attendance of sorrowing friends at the obsequies Wednesday afternoon. A bank of floral tributes accompanied the remains to their last resting place In the Odd Fellows cemetery. The beautiful and impressive Woodmen burial ceremony was conducted by Fre mont camp, assisted by Lauristinus circle. La Fiesta camp last Sunday un veiled the monuments erected over the graves of its deceased members and decorated their graves. The members assembled at the hall in the early morning and, dividing themselves up into five groups, repaired respectively to Inglewood, Rosedale, Evergreen, Odd Fellows and Catholic cemeteries. Wagonloads of flowers were placed upon the graves and the beautiful rit ualistic ceremony of the Woodmen of the World was performed by the re spective officers. The consul com mander's part is particularly beauti ful. "We are assembled today to dedi cate a monument, reared by willing hands and loving hearts, to honor the name and memory of a neighbor of the Woodmen of the World. It is the fulfillment of an obligation which all Woodmen have taken to protect the good name of each other while living and mark well his grave when dead. The cold stone which shall mark his last resting place stands like a faith ful sentinel to guard his dust and in dicate to the world his devotion to those he loved and to his chosen craft. The passerby will pause and read the name of a good man and a true neigh bor." Tomorrow night La Fiesta camp will initiate a large class of candidates. June 27 an entertainment for men will be given by the camp, which bids fair to eclipse any previous entertain ments given in Los Angeles. A rep- resentative committee has been ap- pointed, consisting of Dr. Dougall, S. L. Hall, Henry Brugman, Frank Bag ley and Capt Fred Bagley, The even ing's entertainment will conclude with a sparring exhibition, and all disciples of physical culture will be interested in this bout, as it promises to be classy. La Fiesta will Install its officers July 11, with Dr. J. Park Dougall as install ing officer and P. C. C Frank Bagley as neighbor escort. In order to fittingly celebrate the Induction into office of the recently elected officers a ladies' night lias been decided, and in conse quence the installation will be public. Dam Ing will be the principal feature of tin- evening. «. As a result of the efforts of Special Organizer William Stretch at Ontario last month sixteen new names were added to the roll of the camp. Neigh bor Stretch is also doing splendid work at San Bernardino and Colton. Pasadena camp is working up well In its campaign for new members, and at the. last two meetings Clerk Forbes reported the names of a good number of applicants.
