Davenport, Aug. 11.—The Iowa Grand
Lodge, K. of P., lnstalleu officers and
adjourned late yesterday afternoon.
The session was most successful. Rou
tine business and reports were the main
feature of the session, and all showed
gratifying conditions.
The secretary's report showed a mem
bership in the state of 24,485 In 419 lodg
es. The grand lodge receipts for the
year were $17.399.31 disbursement of
subordinate lodges for funeral and sick
benefits, $19,457.54 total assets, $281,
437.65.
The committee recommended that the
resolution for a permanent location of
the grand lodge be not adopted, which
was carried.
After a spirited contest T. M. Shock
ley, of Oskaloosa, was elected grand
master at arms, and W. A. Collp, of
Waterloo, grand Inner guard.
Major General Camahan, of the uni
form rank, while addressing the grand
lodge this morning, was interrupted by
"Calamity" Weller when he touched on
the Philippines, saying he would follow
the flag, right or wrong. The chair re
fused Weller's point of order, which
was made on the ground that the
speaker was talking politics. The rul
ing was received with strong manifesta
tion of approval. Mr. Carnahan'a
speech was highly patriotic and well re
ceived.
The Eldon, Oskaloosa, Radcliffe, Shel
don and Clinton companies participat
ed In a prize drill at Camp Loper in the
afternoon. RadclifTe won, with 90 2-3
per cent Sheldon second, with 89 2-3.
There was some feeling among uniform
rank, who claim they are ignored by the
grand lodge. The sentiment may crys
talize in a movement to hold an en
campment Independent of the grand
lodge meeting, and may come to a head
at the next encampment.
The Rathbone Sisters elected and in
stalled these officers:
Grand chief, Mrs. Hattle Laubenfels,
Mt. Pleasant.
Grand senior, Mrs. Hattle Lanning,
Washington.
Grand junior, Mrs. Abble McCall,
Davenport.

Nelle Aday, Dubuque.

Iowa grand lodge, K. of P., died here
yesterday afternoon of an attack of
acute gastaritis, while attending u.e
afternoon session. He was taken to
his hotel, where his death occurred at
0:30 this evening. Heart trouble is sup
posed to have followed the gastric at
tack, causing death. Deceased was 5i'
years of age, a practicing physician at
Eagle Grove, and well known through
out the state. The remains were sent
home this evening.

Iowa Falls, Aug. 11.—A special school
election will be held here next Tuesday
to vote again on the Issuing of $7,000
worth of bonds with which to purchase
the land and erect a school building in
the Third ward. An election for this
purpose was held last spring, but was
technically illegal as the call was for
uie issue of bonds to purchase the
ground, but no mention was made of
bonds for a school building, so that an
other election is necessary to conform
with law and make the issue of bonds
legal.

SOUTHWEST IOWA PLAN.
DO Not Want Soldiers Returned by
Way of Des Moines.
Creston, Aug. 11.—The Gazette prints
the following: "The people of south
west Iowa are very much interested in
the plan to have the Fifty-first regi
ment come home in a body at the ex
pense of the stae, but Des Moines as
the regiment's destination is not to the
liking of this par! of the state. A great
majority of the citizens would like very
much to have the boys .come home in
a body that the people may in some
manner show their appreciation of the
valiant work of Iowa soldiers on Phil
ippine battle fields, but there Is a gen
eral Impression that Des Moines is not
the whole thing, but that other cities
deserve some of the privileges.
"The people of this part of the state
object to their soldier boys being taken
to the state capital and thus suffering
unnecessary delay in reaching home.
Soldiers who have been away from rel
atives and friends almost eighteen
months will hardly like the idea of be
ing carried past their homes simply
that their regiment may formally dis
band in Des Moines, and such a plan
will suit only a small portion of the
regiment. It Is thought by hundreds of
people that the regiment should be
brought to Iowa at as early a date as
possible after being mustered out and
allowed to go home by the most direct
route, without unnecessary delay.
"The plan proposed by southwest Iowa
Is to bring the regiment from San
Francisco to Council Bluffs at the ex
pense of the state. There the regiment
could be welcomed home by Governor
Shaw and the people. Council Bluffs
is the home of the company and that
company should be left there. The re
mainder of the regiment could reach
home direct over the Burlington as the
campanies are from the following
places: Glenwood, Ued Oak, Shenan
doah, Villisca, Corning, Creston, Bed
ford, Oskaloosa and Des Moines. Thus
could the boys come direct to their
homes after being landed on their na
tive soil at Council Bluffs and not be
delayed two or three days that Des
Moines may have the honor of welcom
ing the boys home.
"Southwest Iowa people favor this
plan and Governor Shaw will be peti
tioned to have the different companies
taken home direct from Council Bluffs.
This is the feasible plan and one which
will please the Iowa soldiers and their
friends who are now anxiously awaiting
the home-coming."
Masou Lectures at Luke Tlow
Lake View, Aug. 11.—Capt. O. H. L.
Mason, chaplain of the Forty-ninth

Charles City, Aug. 11.—Miss Mabelle
Waller Moore, a Charles City girl, has
been chosen to understudy Alice Niel
son and leaves Chicago for New York
the 27th of August. Miss Waller's ex
ceptional good luck is due to an inci
dent of recent date. She was taking her
lesson when Will J. Davis, proprietor
of the Columbia theater, Chicago, hear
ing her voice, immediately sought her
and asked that she sing for Mr. Perley,
manager of Nielson. She consented and

"What is meant by 'free alkali,' doctor? I see it mentioned In
the
advertisements of Ivory Soap."
"'Free alkali,' madam, is the alkali which is not combined
with the fats or oils of which the soap is made, due to the ignorance
or carelessness of the soap maker. Soaps in which 'free alkali' is
present are decidedly injurious to both the clothing and the skin,
when habitually used. I have seen reports of analysis made of the
