| A Sale for Charitable and Religious
Purposes.
! That which is already known to some
by rumor is now definitely announced that
a sale will be held under the management
of Christ Church Guild, of Christ Church
Parish in this city, assisted by St. Agnes
Guild and the Brotherhood of St. Andrew.
It is undertaken at the suggestion and by
the permission of the Rector of the Parish,
and the preparations for it in the bands of
an efficient committee of ladies are being
encouraged by all the members of the
parish, as well as by others. The time will
be through the days and evenings of Wed
nesday and Thursday, November 22d and
23d. Should there be any necessity for it
the sale will be continued on Saturday,
but if so nothing will be done on the inter
vening Friday, out of reverance for that
day, and for the services ot the chnrch al
ways held on that day. The place will be
the former residence of Dr. Benne't, on
Broad street next door tj th_ post office,
and the large room formerly used by him
as a Dental Office. This place very kindly
given for the purposes, is centrally located,
accessible and commodious. There will be
offered for sale at legitimate prices, home
made pies, cakes and candies, and the re
sults of the handiwork of the guilds and of
individuals, fancy and useful articles, many
of which will be desirable as Christmas
gifts. No particular use of the money thus
made has been decided upon, but it must
be understood that it is not lor any debt or
arrearage of any sort, as no such exists in
the parish. A fair proportion, if not all, the
proceeds, will be devoted to purely charit
able objects. In view of this fact, also of
the fact that the people of Christ’s Church
have done nothing of this sort for the past
ten years; and of the fact that there will
be opportunity for the purchase of very de
sirable articles at moderate prices, the pat
ronage of the people of Woodbury is confi
dently and earnestly solicited. Nothing
eatable will be sold for consumption at the
place. H. K. T.
Lost At Sea.
The unknown fate of the Philadelphia
schooner Genevieve, which sailed from
Phila. early in October for Charleston,
S. C., is causing great anxiety to families
of the crew. The owners believe that the
vessel has foundered and that all hands
have perished in one of the October gales,
which swept away many other sailing
vessels.
The Genevieve carried a cergo of 718
tons of bituminous coal, shipped by the
Penn Gas Coal Company of Phila., to the
Charleston Gas Light Company, and left
the Greenwich coal piers over a month ago
for her destination. Captain Cbaa. Haley,
of Mauricetown, N. J., commanded the
vessel, and there was a crew of seven men,
mostly residents of Philadelphia and near
by towns in New Jersey and Delaware.
The crew were : Constant P. Webb, mate ;
John McDonald, second mate; Charles I
Summers, cook : Adolph Schmidt, James
Hughes, Theodore Olsen and James Mc
Dade, seamen. Franklin Smith, of Pbilada.
was the managing owner. The vessel was
built in 1882 at Cooper’s Point, Camden.
Capt. Haley was a brother of Mrs. Sam’l
Loudenslager of this city, and Uncle of
Congressman Loudenslager and Charles
Avis of this city. It is believed that the
vessel was lost off Frying Pan Shoals.
Odd Fellow's Encampment.
The Grand Encampment of New Jersey
Odd Fellows was in session Tuesday at
Masonic Temple, Trenton, Grand Patri
arch Evan Dalrymple, of Pfaillipsbnrg,
presiding. Grand Scribe Lewis Parker’s
report shows that there are fifty-seven en
campments under the jurisdiction of the
State, and these have a total membership
of 3,013. The amount paid for the relier
of patriarchs, funeral benefits and special
relief is $11,046^4. The officers elected
were Grand Patriarch William H. Biddle,
of Atlantic City ; Grand High Priest, Jos.
McMahon,Newark ; Grand Senior Warden,
Albert Bunn. German Valley; Grand
Scribe, Lewis Parker, Trenton; Grand

Sentinel, Philip Heckendom, Newark;

two dav’a session, beginning yesterday.
A Farewell Surprise.
A company of seventy Christian Endeav
orers and friends visited the Baptist par
sonage oq Monday evening to pay their
President and Pastor a ^farewell surprise.
The evening was spent in social intercourse
of a most enjoyable character. During the
evening Mr. Pierson was presented with an
elegant easy chair and Mrs. Pierson with a
handsome table, as tokens of esteem. A
sumptuous lunch was served during the
evening. This society is devoted to their
late pastor, and the parting is deeply re
gretted.
An Interesting Decision*
A decision of some interest to the mem
bers of benevolent societies in New Jersey,
was rendered yesterday. One Bobert Tay
lor, agent of the Commonwealth Beneficial
Association was convicted last year of vio
lating the provision cf the Insurance Act,
by doing business without authority of the
Insurance Commissioners. He appealed
and the decision was handed down by Su
preme Court Justice Depue, reversing the
verdict on the ground that an association
incorporated under the Benevolent Asso
ciation Act does not come within the pro.
hibition of the insurance laws so long as it
confines its agreements to the payment of
sick benefits and burial expenses.
—Having opened the boot and shoe
busiuess in Swedesboro, opposite the M. E.

Foot Ball.
There was a large crowd present at the
West Side grounds last Saturday afternoon
when the “Scrubs” and the Woodburys
lined up tor a game of thirty-minutes
halves. The Woodburys were minus their
three centre men but the interference was
very good and at times so well collected as
to enable tbe backs to make very long runs.
The “Scrubs” played a sharp, plucky game
but tbe “Reg’s” had weight, speed and gen
eral team work and rolled up a score of 56
to 0. For the “Reg’s” Wallis, Beck, Boon,
Read and White did the best work, while
“Cap” Jessup, Stillwell, Turner, and Mar
cus did good work for the “Scrubs.” The
teams lined up as follows:
Woodbury. Woodbury “Scrub”

Wallis, Left Tackle Twells

Referee Mr. Garrigues. Umpire Mr.
Hudson.
The Wizbet Athletic Association of
Philadelphia play the home team on tbe
West Side grounds, Delaware street, nezt
Saturday afternoon, and no doubt there
will be the usual large crowd present.

Killed while Gunning.
A terrible accident occurred in North
Woodbnry on Friday last, which resulted
in the death of George Dickerson, son of
John Dickerson, the well-known colored
trustee of School District No. 1. Dicker
son, in company with Charles M. Brown, a
colored lad, aged 16 years, started out gun
ning about noon, and had just reached an
apple orchard about 300 yards from Dick
erson’s home, when a dock of pigeons dew
near the boys. Dickerson discharged his
gun at the pigeous, and Brown, who was
standing a few feet back of his friend, was
about to put his gun to his shoulder when
in some manner the hammer went down,
discharging the weapon and blowing the
lop of Dickerson’s head off, killing him al
ost instantly.
Brown, paralyzed with freight, ran for
assistance, but by the time he had secured
help his friend was dead. The body was
removed to his parents’ home, and Coroner
Smith was notided, who empanelled a
jury, and, after hearing the evidence, a
verdict of accidental death was rendered.
The dead youth was about 17 years old,
and was one of the recent graduates of the
Woodbury Academy, was well known iD
the neighborhood for his kind disposition.
He and Brown were constant comDaDions,
and the accident has driven Brown almost
crazy with grief, and it is feared he will
lose his mind. Young Dickerson was also
a nephew of the late Bishop Dickerson, of
South Carolina. The funeral on Monday
was largely attended.
Kellar.
Is Kellar really a spiritualist? Don’t
ask—go and see for yourself. If you ask
him point blank he will laugh at your
folly. But how else can he out-medium
the mediums themselves, turn day into
night, materialize a Maid of the Moon who
dances upon the air in full view in the
brightgas light,lead the minds of strangers,
break through all the limitations of time
and space, reveal the secrets of black magic
and actually cause before yonr very eyes a
living, breathing human being to vanish
into nothing. He comes here direct from
Daly’s Theatre, in New York City, where
for a long season he delighted the most
critical metropolitan andienceB with snch
feats of modern magic (ancient magic

Attempted Burglary.
Late on Thursday night, burglars gained
an entrance to the house of Captain B. W.
Clond, ex-Superintendent of the Wood
bury Water Works, but the timely arrival
of tbe family prevented the bnrglars from
looting tbe bouse.
Ur. Cloud, who is Captain of Company
E, Sixth Kegiment, was at the annual in
spection of his command, and his family
had gone ont to make a call. On return
ing home, they were startled to tind tbe
light homing brightly in tbe kitchen. Mr.
Cloud’s daughter went up stairs, and, se
curing a revolver, started to find the in
truders. Just as Bhe reached the kitcbeD,a
man leaped out of an oieo window. Sbe
quickly brought the revolver into action,
and three pistol balls were sent after the
retreating bnrglar, bat owing to tbe dhrk
ness, he escaped. This is tbe fourth time
that attempts have been made to rob Ur.
Cloud’s house, and it is the general belief
that the robbers were well acquainted in
the vicinity, and knew that the family
were absent from borne. An attempt was
made on Sunday night to rob the residence
of Barclay Gaunt, on Bed Bank avenne,but
the return of the family from church spoiled
the robbers’ program.

I. O. O F.
From the True American of Wednesday
we coppy the following interesting histori
cal article on Odd Fellowship :
The Grand Lodge of New Jersey of the
Independent Order of Odd Fellows was
instituted in Masonic Hall, in the city of
Trenton, on the 3d day of Angnst, 1833, by
Grand Sire Tbos. Wildey, John Pierce, of
Camden, was the first Grand Master. At
that time there were bat three Lodges in
the State, and they were New Jersey
Lodge. No. 1, of Camden ; Benevolent Lodge,
No. 2, of Paterson: Trenton Lodge, No. 3,
of Trenton, was instituted on the same date
that the Grand Lodge was.
New Jersey Lodge, No. 1, and the Benev
olent Lodge, No. 2, were made in 1129 by
Grand Sire Wildey.
It is said that he visited Camden on bis
way to institute Benevolent Lodge at
Paterson, which in that event would have
been No. 1, but some of the members, of
which there were a few in Camden, so ar
ranged matters that the Grand Sire was
prevented from proceeding on his journey,
and that night New Jersey Lodge, No- 1
was instituted. The following day he pro
eeeded to Paterson, and instituted Benevo
lent Lodge, No. 3. Trenton Lodge No. 3,
was instituted August 3d, 1833, and con
tinued for some years, and finally went
down. It was revived and re-organized
on November 26,1867, and Israel Howell
was made N. G. Associated with him in
the revival of the Lodge were Jasper Lan
ning, Jacob Beecroft, Joshua Jeffries, Cbas.
B. Smith, Joseph B. Yard, John N. Lind
say, Henry McCullough, Charles Yanhorn,
Aaron Carlisle, L. L. Lettellier, R. B. Bell,
Daniel Heald and William C. Branin.
Since the reorginization No. 3 has grown
along steadily, and now has 150 members
in good standing. In connection with
Fred D. Stuart Lodge No. 154 they meet
in what is known as Odd Fellows’ Hall, on
the corner of Broad and East Hanover
streets.
Concordia Lodge No. 4, of Trenton, is
also one of the older lodges, its organization
dating back to December 27,1833. John
Mount was the first N. G. Many of the
older citizens will remember him as having
kept a restaurant, where the hungry citi
zens of that day got their oyster stews and
fries.
When Cordia Lodge was organized the
meetings were held for some time in the
houses ot the members, those who belonged
being compelled to sneak in to attend the
meetings, as it was considered a disgrace
ful thing to be an Odd Fellow in those
days.
The lodge did not prosper very much
until September, 1841, when it was re
organized, and continuous weekly meet
ings have been held ever since. There are
now 160 members in good standing on the
books. Many prominent citizens have
been affiliated with Concordia Lodge,
amoDg them Governor Parker, who was
initiated in No. 4, and afterward took his
withdrawal card. The following brief
statement will show the growth of the
Grand Lodge for the 60 years that it has
maintained an existence.
In 1833, as stated, there were three
lodges with a membership of 51, and the
total receipts were $206.
In 1843 there were 18 Lodges, 1,301
members ; the total receipts were $10,774.
In 1853 there were 108 Lodges, 7,349
members, the total receipts amounting to
$43,100.
In 1863 there were 84 Lodges, 4,490
members, receipts, $30,203.
In 1873, 150 Lodges, 15,251 members,
receipts $154,357.
In 1883, 197 Lodges, 16,682 members,
total receipts $181,288.
In 1893, 240 Lodges, 23,834 members.
total receipts^SS,113.69.
THE OBDEB OF ODD FELLOWS.
American Odd Fellowship, called the
Independent Order, was established by
Thomas Wildey at Baltimore on the 26th
of April, 1819. The organization was ef
fected at the tavern known as the “Seven
Stars” on Second street, in the city of Bal
timore. The others who assisted in the
organization were Thomas Welch, Richard
Rushwoith, John Duncan and John Cheat
ham. In accordance w ith ancient cnstom
they self-instituted themselves a lodge,
which they named Washington Ledge, No.
1, of Odd Fellows, and the old lodge is still
in existence.
Thomas Wildey and bis conferees had
been made Odd Fellows in Engined, where
the Lodges were originally formed by
workingmen for social purposes, and for
giving the brethren aid, and for assisting
them when ont of work. When a hrother
could not obtain work he was given a card
and funds enough to carry him to the Dext
Lodge, and if unsuccessful there, that
Lodge facilitated him in the same way.
Where he found employment there he de.
posited his card.
At first there was no Ritnal, and formal
method of conducting the business of the
Lodge. In tbe early days ot the institu
tion, after the formal business was trans
acted, conviviality and good tellowship be
came the order of the night, and the breth
ren made the welkins ring with their fa
vorite songs.
When Friendship, Love and Truth abound
Among a band of brothers,
The cnp ot joy goes gaily round,
Each shares tbe bliss of others.
Id tbe early history of tbe order each
Lodge was tbe arbiter of Us own fate and
practically supreme. Tbe need of unity of
action, and a bead for the order soon be
came apparent, and on Febrnaay 22d, 1821,
the Grand Lodge of Maryland was consti
tuted by tbe Committee of Past Grands.
The charter of Washington Lodge, No. 1>
which had come from tbe parent order in
England, was snrrendered to the Grand
Lodge, and a new charter issued to Wash
ton Lodge No. 1, on the 9th of February,
1822. Franklin Lodge No, 2, was subse
quently organized and the order began to
spread to other States. Massachusetts
Lodge, No 1, was self-instituted on the 26th
of March, 1820, under tbe snpposition that
it was tbe only lodge in the conntry, and
so continued until February, 1822, when
correspondence took place between the Bos
ton and Baltimore brethren. New York
and Pennsylvania soon followed.
A preliminary meeting for the organiza
tion of the Grand Lodge of the United
States, composed yf representatives from
the Grand Lodges of Maryland, Pennsylva
nia, New York and Massachusetts, was
held January 25th, 1825. The Grand
Lodge of the United States was the supreme
head of the order nntil a few years ago
when its same was changed to tbe sover
eign Grand Lodge, it having grown beyond
the locality described by its name. Thomas
Wildey was the first Grand Sire, the title
having been adopted by general consent!
and was confirmed in I»28, and is still re
tained as tbe title of the presiding officer
of tbe supreme body.
The order retained its pre-eminently so
cial leatnres nntil the admission of James
L. Ridgely, who soon became Grand Secre
tary and gave it the vital force that it has
to day as a benevolent organization. Tbe
small and insignificant beginning made in
that little tavern in Baltimore, Dearly sev
enty-five years ago has grown to stupen
dous proportions. Tbe reports made at
the last session of tbe Sovereign Grand
Lodge, held in the city ot Milwaukee, on
the 18th of September last, show that
there were representaties present from 55
Grand Lodges and 50 Grand Encampments
representing a membership of 773,431, with !
$3,350,455.84 paid oot for relief to the sick j
and burying the dead of the order.
Early in the history of the order the in
fluence of woman was acknowledged, and
the degree of Rebekah was added, and at
the present time there are 96,312 ladies
who wear the pink and green collar of the
Degree. Up to less than twenty years ago*
there were five degrees in the Subordinate
Lodge, and the work of the Lodge was
done in the lowest degree, since that time
the order baa been reversed, the degrees
being cut down to three and the work done
in the highest—a member must take all
the de trees before he can sit in the lodge
while in session.
The “triple link’’ now binds the world
in a vast brotherhood to whose ears the cry
of the 8ufi'ering and distress comes not in
vain.
