Local Aerie Entertains Large num
ber of Friends Wednesday
Evening in Qrand Ball.
Notwithstanding the inclement
weather one of the largest crowds
in the history of Amarillo society
attended the reception and grand
ball given by the local aerie of
Eagles in their hall at the Carson
building Wednesday evening.
The event was a grand success
in every particular and marks the
initiation of social functions which
will follow during the entire winter.
Grand Deputy Organizer J. L.
Shanklin of the Eagles was a guest
of honor upon the occasion and in
a very entertaining manner spoke
of the growth of the Eagles and
the fraternity and brotherhood of
this rapidly growing organization
which now numbers its members
by the hundred thousand. He
told how the order from an origi
nal membership of five formed in
Seattle in 1898 it has grown to be a
fraternal organization of over 300,
000 members and one of the fore
most societies of the land.
The organization and growth of
this order has been phenomenal and
is clearly a demonstration of the
popularity of fraternalism and
brotherhood so strongly featured in
the American people. The five
men who first interested them
selves in a fraternal organization of
this order called it the "Orcer of
Gocd Things" ana in its general
acceptance and popularity these

same men decided to make the or
ganization a national one and in
forming their plans were attracted
to the name of Eagles by the 6ight
of a large eagle soaring from one
mountain peak to another with its
illustrated impression of things of
a higher order.
Mr. Shanklin closed his talk by
comparing the growth and organ-!
ization of local lodges in Texas and:
with the statement that Amarillo
aerie represented the largest new
lodge in the state.
The main hall used for the danc
ing was beautifully decorated with
the emblems of the order, while
ferns and chrysathemums were
artistically arranged about the
room making a most harmonious
effect to the color festooned in the
draping of the national colors of
The Grand March was led by
Mr. Robt. Clark and Mrs. Gus Hol
lander and was followed by waltz
es and two-steps with occasional
quadrilles and shottishes. The
dancing continued to a late hour
with an intermission at the mid
night hour at which time a well ap
pointed banquet was participated
in by the guests,
The tables were arranged in the
main hall of the building and were
loaded with delicacies intermingled
with beautiful flowers and ferns
which presented a most tempting
appearance. During the course
of the banquet two hundred and
fifty-three guests were served and
in a manner that affords much
credit to the local Eagles who had
charge of the entertaining.

In Choosing a Home.
There are so many features to
consider in choosing a place for a
permanent residence. Itisaques
tion of great importance to ones
family as well as ones self, and
there are many features of vital
importance to take into considera
tion. A healthful climate should be
foremost, for prosperity is but a
poor blessing when there is con
stant ill health. If the bitter, rig
orous winter of the north, the close
sultry summers of the south, or the
low malaria infested regions are
not suited to ones temperament,
then choose sections with medium
winters, a pleasant summer or of
sufficient altitude to be free from
malaria and disease.
Such is the Panhandle of Tex
as, not the long bitter cold
winters, but enough cold weather
to insure crops. No long hot sul
try summers, but alway a fine
breeze sweeping over these great
plains, and heat prostrations never
The altitude not too high, but
sufficient to make nrularia. chills
and ague a perfect stranger.
A county with sufficient rainfall
to insure crops, and where it falls
during the season when it is need
ed, According to the U.S- Weath
er Bureau at Amarillo, there has
been an average of 22 inches per
annum of rainfall during the past
thirteen years, and to date during
1905, more than 27 inches.
The deep well water is pure and
wholesome, free from alkali and
The convenience to schools and
churches should be well in mind,
for it is not just or right to deprive
ones family of the opportunities of
education and the influence of the
church. Neither is it right to lo
cate too distant from market, for
of what use to raise stock or grain
when the expense of marketing it
consumes all the profit? In many
new countries it takes years to ac
complish these things
Then the land conditions are to
be carefully studied. A country
where diversified farming is pos
sible is always most profitable and
prosperous. If one crop fails,
another helps out in the emer
gency. . Both land and climatic condi
tions are most favorable for such
farming in the Panhandle. Cotton,
corn, wheat, oats, alfalfa, maize,
Kaffir corn, millet, fruits, melons,
berries and vegetables are very
profitably grown, and with less ex
pense and labor than in the north
