A SOCIAL AFFAIR AT PYTHIAN HALL On last Monday night the local lodge of Knights of Pythias had a very interesting and well at tended meeting.

The presentation speech was made by Keeper of Record and Seal, R. P. Hamby, inj a very appropriate talk, recalling the many virtues of Bro. Chap pell as a man snd a Pythian. Brother Chappell accepted the gift, which was a beautiful charm emblematic of the order, in a few well chosen words, which clearly showed that it was a complete surprise as well as highly appreciated.
