Tho (emion of the grand camp of tho Arctic Hrotherhoodjhat adjourned yes terday afternoon made a very clear showing of the stability and progress of the country. While a few cam;* that were prematurely established in places like Ijike ISeunett have died with the vanishing of tho transcient towns where they were located, th<' ortler ai large ha* made a wonderful growth. In nearly every instance the subordinate cam|*t are established in well built and handsomely equipped hall*. At Nome, where the active membership number* the splendid clubhouse of the brotherhood is the fountain of all (he social life of the l<opulous Arctic city. This home of the brotherhood comprises reading room, library, museum and social hall, aiuaMof com'.v corners ami facilities for plaviug Barnes and indulgence in all manner of social amusement. Ladies are made welcome to the hall several days during the week, and as the mem bership of the camp is comprised of but the l>e->t men of Nome, they gladly avail themselves of the privilege. At St Michael. Council and Eagle camp* of the brotherhood art- atTordiug a means of fraternal and social iutci course, and are performing a function that is appreciated for beyond the con ception of those whodaell In localities where there are other and manifold or ganisations to alcorb the attention of the people. While the active resident member ship of the order has generally and ma terially increased, it Is still a fact that there are now more meml>crs of the order without the jurisdiction of the Arctic Hrolherhood than within. The* are scattered far and wide. Letters coming from every land in the worlt'. to the recorders of the various cani|t>. in which the writers revert fondly to the goud friends they left behind when de|?arting 'rorn the country, leads l? the belief that the holding of the next grand camp session at Seattle will mean the most general reunion of Arc tic lirolhers withiu the history of the order.

No man has ever yet succeeded Id painting au honest portrait of himself n au autobiography however scdu iously he may have set to work about It. Ill spite of his candid purpose h? omits nectssary touches and adds *u pertluou* oiks. At times he cannot help draping Ills thought, and the least shred of drapery disguises It. It la only the dlarlsi who accomplishes the teat of self portraiture, and he, without any such end In view, dues It uncon sciously. A man cannot keep a dally record of his comings and goings and the little Items that make up the ?uui of his life anil not Inadvertently give himself away at every turn. He lays 1 1. ire his heart with a candor not iwaxl !>le to the self consciousness that In evitably colors premeditated revelation. Cnknowfngly he wears his heart upon his pen for daws to peck at. While Mr. Samuel Pepya was Oiling those small octavo pages with Ills |>erplcxluK cipher he never once imagined that he was adding a photographic |H<rtralt of himself to the world's gallery of Im mortals.
